Top 5 Picks

Pisces by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - Pisces

Another wonderful piece from this artist! The lighting is really immersive and the colors go great with the underwater setting. Do the fish really need to be prettier than me though? Anyway, the scene feels magical and the detail to Red Panda’s surroundings brings everything together. It’s cool to see artists stepping out of their comfort zones and trying new things, because that’s the only way to improve! Anyone else a Pisces? Find her DeviantArt here.

Coral Reef by Fierce Flyer

Fierce Flyer - Coral Reef

Super cool! The sketchy style and bright colors make this piece look playful and full of adventure! The quick brushstrokes remind me of ocean waves and provide a pretty decent sense of movement. The vibrant lighting makes for a cheerful mood and gives life to the plants. Fierce Flyer looks ready to explore! I kinda want more water themed islands now too, what do you guys think? Find his DeviantArt here, and of course check out his posts right here on the PHB.

Scuba Diving Purple Seagull by Purple Seagull

Purple Seagul - Scuba Diving Purple Seagul

Very nice! The bright colors really capture your attention, but still don’t hurt the eye too much. The neon vibe is super interesting and I love Purple Seagull’s design! The scene definitely makes me want to go scuba diving! All the blue makes everything look cool and calm. Find Purple Seagull often in the comments section.

Queen Naiad by JordynGowens (AKA Gentle Dolphin)

queen_naiad_by_jordyngowens-dcfogi6

It may not be mer–May anymore, but this drawing still definitely fits our theme! Modeled after a mermaid costume made by It’s a Poptropica Blog, lots of thought was sure put into this character. Not only is this well drawn, but even a bit of backstory was described by the artist. The bubbles make for a simple, but still interesting background and the blue colors really pop! Find her DeviantArt here.

Poseidon Pop Worlds Style by SuperGrape1

SuperGrape1 - Poseidon Pop Worlds Style

This one is a bit simple compared to others, but still a nice drawing nonetheless! The colors are spot on, matching our beloved Greek god perfectly. And I must say, Poseidon has to be the best mascot for this month’s theme! A wonderful choice for this illustration. Who is your favorite Poptropica deity? Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

We were just a bit short on artwork this month compared to others, so we don’t have honorable mentions to share, but that doesn’t mean these submissions weren’t awesome! Be sure to keep sending us your creations, because we love featuring Poptropicans with such amazing talent. 😀


July: How Do I Participate?

Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fics, Worlds houses, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is July’s theme? July’s theme is…

Blogs & Fans!

July is the PHB’s anniversary month, and that means more than our annual award livestream! It’s a huge occasion, and it baffles my mind how long this site has been running. Though we’ve lost authors along the way, it’s sites like this one that keep the Poptropica fanbase thriving! The fans are what have held the game up all these years, so I think it’s time to celebrate that in Community Creations!

So, what can you submit? Draw some cool group illustrations of PHB (or other blogs) authors! Write a “Pop 5” style post about your favorite parts of your favorite blogs! Create Poptropica costumes of what you think the ultimate fan looks like! Even write songs or poems dedicated to what makes Poptropica so great. You might be wondering… is this month’s theme an excuse just to let us PHB authors get some fan art out of you guys? Well… I have the right to remain silent on that.

And for your inspiration, a major throwback:

Community Creations: May 2018

Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the May recap for Community Creations! May’s theme was heroes and the featured work is not in any particular order. Be sure to check out all the featured artists!

Top 5 Picks

When You Meet Your Favorite Superhero by Gentle Dolphin aka JordynGowens

Gentle Dolphin aka JordynGowens - When You Meet Your Favorite Superhero

If you couldn’t tell, this drawing is a reference to Wonder Woman’s appearance on Greek Sea Odyssey Island. Big DC fans were psyched to see her, I’m sure, so I bet they’d especially love this piece. The coloring is super accurate and the line-art is crisp, primarily on the drawing’s subject of course. Wonder Woman looks strong and confident in that pose! And the fans’ emotion is well depicted. Great detail! Find her DeviantArt here.

Heroes of Greek Myth by epiphxny

epiphxny - Heroes of Greek Myth

You can easily tell that a lot of work went into this piece! The lighting is fantastic and makes the heroes look like their glowing with power and confidence. The coloring is simple and soft, and I love the style that the Poptropicans are drawn in. Greek myths have always been a big part of Poptropica, from the original Mythology Island to the more recent Greek Sea Odyssey Island. It’s certainly a fan favorite subject! From left to right in the illustration, we have Perseus, Atalanta and Hercules, all from stories you might be familiar with. Amazing work! Find his DeviantArt here.

World Guy: The First on the Force by Sporty Boa

Sporty Boa - World Guy The First on the Force

I think the similarities between Poptropica’s World Guy and Marvel’s Captain America can’t be ignored, and this drawing highlights those perfectly. In this comparison, the artist mimicked a well known Marvel poster, but with our beloved PoptropiCon hero in center stage! This entire idea was really neat and well executed. The pose and other details are super accurate, as seen in this side by side image. While Greek heroes tend to be fan favorites, PoptropiCon is also chock full of some amazing supers. Wonderful drawing! Find his Twitter here.

Marvel Madness by Spotted Eagle

Spotted Eagle - Marvel Madness

What a line up! Marvel’s popularity these days is anything but quiet, and this collage of characters is a perfect example of that superhero adoration. With a mixture of editing and in game costumes, this assortment really brings to life what some of pop culture’s most well known (and less known) heroes would look like as Poptropicans. Can you recognize everyone? Who kinda wants another superhero oriented island in Poptropica Worlds now? Nice work! Friend them with the username dad34853.

Pretzel Break in Super Power Island by ChibiNeko-Lover

ChibiNeko-Lover - Pretzel Break in Superpower Island

Super Power Island is obviously a great choice for this month’s theme. And we have to remember that superheroes need a break every now and then too! You can’t tell me that you didn’t just wanna stop and eat a pretzel when you got stuck on this island. Anyway, the composition of this drawing is wonderful, the camera angle adds lots of interest! Not to mention all the detail in every inch of the piece and the cool, bright colors. Great work! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

 

Your submissions never cease to wow me guys! It was especially fun to see all your favorite heroes this month. We even got some My Hero Academia! Great work everyone!

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is June’s theme? June’s theme is…

Under the Sea!

With summer coming up for most Poptropicans, a cool down is needed. Whether that be a pool party with friends or a full on beach vacation, water is the key element! And Poptropica doesn’t shy away from the ocean. So, for this month, make something related to water! Or, in more fun terms, under the sea!

The possibilities are endless as usual. Draw your favorite underwater Poptropicans, like Poseidon! Create the perfect beach day outfit for Wimpy Boardwalk! Write about your thrilling adventures in Mission Atlantis! The details are up to you, so have fun!

Top 5 Picks

Ex Super Villains Doing not so Super Things by CrazyPaintbrush

CrazyPaintbrush - Ex Super Villains Doing Not So Super Things

This is super cute! I snickered a bit when I saw this, because it’s really funny to imagine all these big bad villains doing… well, “not so super things.” From the detail in Copy Cat’s book (How to Survive Roommates)  to the cool outfit changes, this piece was very thoughtful! If I had flying powers, I think I would use it a good 90% of the time to avoid traffic. Totally cool and funny! Find her DeviantArt here.

Poptropica Jokes by Creeper Queen

  1. It doesn’t make sense that Mordred (from Astro Knights) goes by his other alias, I personally think he’s non-BINARY.
  2. Does anyone know if Mordred is good with trading? He seems like he’d be good at BARD-er.
  3. What did Poseidon say to Hades (Mythology Island) after he saw pomegranates for the first time? “HADES look pretty neat!”
  4. You know how there are 5 episodes in Survival Island? Wouldn’t that make it Sur-FIVE-al Island?
  5. You know how Tessa Turncoat double-crossed the player? It was a true PoptropiCON in Poptropicon Island!
  6. After Mr. Silva tried to steal CJ’s invention, she needed to see a SHRINK for advice on what to do to prevent it from happening again!
  7. The Great Booga Shark never tells shark lies. He only tells the shark TOOTH.
  8. In my opinion, Red Dragon Island didn’t dragON for too long!
  9. Why did Salerno (Lunar Colony) jump into the portal in the end? She coloNEEDED to see that aliens were real!
  10. In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island, what did Willy Wonka say to Charlie after Violet blew up with juice? “Did JUICY how big she got?!”
  11. What animation company created Shrek in the Poptropica world STEAMWORKS animation!

Welp, I told you guys I was a sucker for puns! A bunch of these are pretty darn creative and certainly made me smile. I have to say that I’m impressed by how everything related back to an island so well. Plus, a unique written submission is always refreshing! What’s next, some Poptropica dad jokes? Find the jokes on her DeviantArt here.

Another Wild Adventure by ANNE14TCO and BlazingAngel123

ANNE14TCO and BlazingAngel 123 - Another Wild Adventure

Wow, we haven’t seen many collabs in this series! The combination of talent makes for one amazing piece. The shading, coloring detail, etc. rocks, but the facial expressions are what really made me laugh! I think most people can easily see their own Poptropican in this situation. Plus, it’s super cool to see a screenshot sort of style! The movement depicted is great, so it really feels like a photo was taken of the chaos. Find Anne’s DeviantArt here and BlazingAngel’s DeviantArt here. The former mainly did the coloring and the latter mainly did the lineart!

World’s Craziest Food Fight by Red Tomato

Red Tomato - World's Craziest Food Fight

A photo booth entry is always a nice change of pace! And this one is no exception. With all the chaos in this picture, it’s pretty goofy. I especially like how Red Tomato looks so calm in the foreground while everyone else is practically battling to the death! Have any of you had a food fight in school? Find Red Tomato often in the comments section.

 i bet yall werent expecting THIS by Napstachill

Napstachill - i bet yall werent expecting THIS

I… will never be able to get over this drawing. I always knew Zeus was the god of thunder but I never knew he had thunder thighs too! Look at his smug face! It’s hilarious and like the title implies… unexpected. Though the drawing is a bit dated by now, I think it holds up to the test of time. It’s pretty simple, but well made nonetheless. Find their DeviantArt here.

Not a whole lot of entries this month, but still good ones regardless. Keep showing us your amazing talent guys!

Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fic, realms, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is May’s theme? May’s theme is…

Heroes!

I’m sure most of you have been freaking out about Marvel’s Infinity War lately, so what better theme than heroes? Even if you aren’t on the superhero hype train, Poptropica has it’s own set of otherworldly protectors. From Super Power Island itself to PoptropiCon, caped Poptropicans are hard to miss!

So, what sort of stuff can you make? You could write up a Poptropica comic, starring your own Poptropican as the hero! Or, create Poptropica costumes for your favorite Marvel, DC, and other characters. Even draw some of your favorite PoptropiCon inspired battles perhaps! The list goes on, so have fun with it!

Community Creations: March 2018

community-creations-logo

Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the March recap for Community Creations! March’s theme was historical and the featured work is not in any particular order. Be sure to check out all the featured artists!

No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.

Top 5 Picks

Amenthes and Keres by WitchyArtistGal (formerly TechnoBunny16)

WitchyArtistGal - Amenthes and Keres

In Poptropica, we’ve traveled to many different time periods, but no one island has been centered completely around Egyptian mythology (though we do see Egypt in Nabooti Island). Still, Poptropica loves its mythology and this drawing not only features an Egyptian character, but a Greek one as well! I especially like the incorporation of animal legs and tail, which aren’t too common in the game. Though the photo quality is a bit rough, you can still tell that the colors and outfits are spot on, working well together. Find her DeviantArt here.

Medusa by SuperFlameKitty

SuperFlameKitty - Medusa

Unsurprisingly, another mythology piece! Though, this one is a bit darker. Not only does it give us a glimpse into Medusa’s backstory, but it also brings up a theory of why Poptropicans don’t have necks. The artist explains,

The myth is that when Medusa was hunted down by a warrior, he only managed to cut off her neck. Right before she was about to die, through sheer determination, her head started floating and she survived the beheading. Athena, impressed, declared that surviving without a neck was a sign of strength. And bada bing bada boom. Poptropicans now don’t have necks.

Grim, but a super cool theory! The perspective/composition in the drawing is captivating, and the juxtaposition between the darkness enveloping Medusa and the light from the doorway creates great atmosphere. Emotional, detailed, and amazing! Find their DeviantArt here.

Mystery Train Island by Red Tomato

Red Tomato - Mystery Train Island

Mystery Train Island is definitely a classic adventure, bringing to life the late 1800s. This drawing is super cute, showing all characters aboard the train. Even some items and clues were included. Plus, I think the numerous ‘???” capture the plot perfectly, haha! At every turn, the hero is filled with questions of “whodunit?” The colors are bright and there is something in every corner of the page, adding to the chaotic memories of playing the island and running around the train! Cute, good job! Find Red Tomato often in the comments section.

1920s AU by BlazingAngel

BlazingAngel123 - 1920s AU

What a throwback! This piece was made a while ago, when a Poptropica Decades AU drawing trend was going around in our DeviantArt community. Not only does the black and white color scheme capture this time period, but the fashion and overall style does too. A great challenge! I love the motion and the comical expressions. Find her DeviantArt here.

Frida Kahlo (but she’s a Poptropican) by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - Frida Kahlo but she's a Poptropican

Throughout Poptropica’s many islands, numerous historical figures can be met along the way. Including artists! However, Frida Kahlo is not one of them. This is a great Poptropica representation of her in my opinion. If you don’t know, she was a greatly influential Mexican artist. Perfect for our historical theme, and perfect for art! The Poptropican’s design, along with the background show off her style well. Super cute too! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

It was very interesting to see everyone’s spin on historical figures and time periods! Especially when incorporated into the world of Poptropica. Super cool submissions, as always! Keep it up! 🙂


April: How do I Participate?

Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fic, realms, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is April’s theme? April’s theme is…

Humor!

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring? …Pilgrims of course! No? Anyone? C’mon, it’s pretty funny. Anyway, spring is finally here (even though it feels like winter 2.0 for some people) and that typically means pastels and rainbows, despite the numerous rain showers. With some traditional April holidays comes pranks, jokes, and everything goofs. So why not have fun with it?

No matter what you submit, it’s gotta be funny. Not everyone may find it delightful, but I’m a sucker for a good pun, so you’ll probably end up tickling my funny bone no matter what. Maybe create a Poptropica centered comic, with all your favorite characters! Or perhaps make a costume with the most random accessories you can find? Even write a Poptropica themed joke book, with puns galore! The options to make people laugh are endless. (gif below from Pixel)

Top 5 Picks

Early Saturday Fishing by Ally

AllysArt - Early Saturday Fishing

Wonderful! Super soft and colorful, with great line work. This scene is not one you find often in Poptropica fan art, but it sure is beautiful! It’s very peaceful and all the colors work perfectly together. I can almost feel the fresh Spring air! Stunning! Find her Twitter here.

Color Changing by JordynGowens

JordynGowens - Color Changing Characters

Wow! Great spin on this month’s theme. You may recall some color-changing costumes that were added to the Poptropica Store a while back, and here they are again in this drawing! Of course, totally fitting for our color theme. The bright, neon tones really pop against the dark background, and the poses are super cool. Everything is drawn smoothly and simply. Excellent idea and execution! Find her DeviantArt here.

Friends’ Love by HfEvra

HfEvra - Friends' Love

Cute! The art style is spot on Poptropica Worlds. Super accurate, outfits and all.  The lighting also brings to life the setting, because of how bright the sun seems. And of course, the rainbow ties the already sweet and peaceful scene into our colorful theme. A great cherry on top of this adorable relationship shown! Find her DeviantArt here.

Lover Bois by CraftyPoptropican

CraftyPoptropican - Lover Bois

So bright! This artist is never afraid to use vibrant colors, which was perfect for this month. The warm tones that were used provide a heartfelt, warm mood in addition to all the surrounding flowers. A great scheme choice! I’m blushing just looking at it all. The emotion is break-taking, making this piece totally deserve a spotlight. Find his DeviantArt here.

Rainbows by Criaha

Criaha - Rainbows Gif

Ooh! Now this is definitely something we don’t see every month, considering this piece is animated! Obviously the rainbow effect is perfect for our theme, but the gif format sets it a part from other submissions. The unique colors across the character really seem to highlight the different emotions the Poptropican is expressing too. Not only is there detail in the changing facial expressions, but attention was even made towards the way the body is positioned. I can see the effort put into this one! Find her DeviantArt here.

Super colorful creations by everyone! Amazing as ever and always improving! With an open-ended theme like this one, your imagination is the only limit. And a late Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤

Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fic, realms, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is March’s theme? March’s theme is…

Historical!

There’s no time like the present for this theme, aye? Lots of people think of St. Patrick’s Day when thinking of March, but not everyone celebrates such a holiday. That being said, it was influenced (like most holidays) by historical figures. Additionally, we’ve just recently reached Community Creation’s one year anniversary, a big milestone in the PHB’s history! Change is happening all around us, in and out of Poptropica. So let’s take a look back in our textbooks this month!

Maybe make Poptropica outfits for your favorite historical figures? Draw scenes from your favorite time period inspired islands, like Mystery Train and Time Tangled. Even recreate monuments in your Poptropica Worlds house perhaps. These are just a few ideas to get you started, because the possibilities are endless!

Top 5 Picks

Gem Costumes by LilPoptrystalTemp

LilPoptrystalTemp - Gem Costumes

Super creative! A continuation of our other Steven Universe costumes, these outfits totally match their cartoon counterparts. Accurately portraying someone in Poptropica can be a difficult task, but these designs get pretty darn close to their characters. From left to right, we have Peridot, Lapis Lazuli, Jasper, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Aquamarine, Topaz, Sardonyx, Opal, and Sugilite. And each account comes with a username. Plus, I love the attention to detail in each Poptropican name. They perfectly suit the personality of each character while staying true to classic Poptropica names! Great work, I can tell this took effort! Find her DeviantArt here.

Spy Wars by Cuddly Knuckle

Cuddly Knuckle - Spy Wars

Given the somewhat recent movie release, a Star Wars crossover is very appropriate! The mashup works super well with Spy Island too. I think we could find lots of similarities between B.A.D. and the Dark Side, right? I wonder if B.A.D. has cookies… Anyway, this is a cool action pose and there’s definitely strong attention towards lighting. Nice! Find his DeviantArt here.

Twilight Sparkle by HfEvra

HfEvra - Twilight Sparkle

Great editing! Any of our viewers My Little Pony fans? Even if you’re not, I think we can all agree this is an accurate representation of Twilight Sparkle in Poptropica. Even more so, the designs are all in a Poptropica Worlds art style! Hooves Fingers and all! They totally look like actual, in-game costumes. I love that a suitable background was included, as well as a variety of outfits! Find her DeviantArt here.

Gingerbright by Purple Seagull

Purple Seagul - Gingerbright (Cookie Run)

Not as much detail, but still super cool! For you Cookie Run fans out there, have you ever wondered what GingerBright would look like in Poptropica? Well, wonder no more! This cute little character would fit in perfectly with some of Poptropica’s more lighthearted adventures, and definitely looks like both GingerBright and a Poptropican, cookie crumbs and all!  There’s even a bit of shading to help her pop. She’s so cute I could almost eat her up! Find the artist often in the comment section.

Train to Zomberry Island by ANNE14TCO

ANNE14TCO - Train to Zomberry Island

Now here’s a change in mood! On the more intense end of the spectrum is Train to Busan, a Korean zombie film. This pick is an interesting contrast to the world of Poptropica, which just goes to show you how diverse our community is. Still, the comparison to Zomberry Island is perfect of course. The lighting and emotion in this piece is fantastic! It puts me on the edge of my seat for a thriller. Plus, the movie poster format is quite creative, fitting both sides of the crossover (with a little reference to Back Lot Island). Amazing work! Find her DeviantArt here.

Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fic, realms, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is February’s theme? February’s theme is…

Colorful!

Valentine’s Day is coming up and that means it’s been one full year of Community Creations! Last year we kicked things off with “shipping” and the rest is history. Anyway, February is a time of love and friendship, so why not express that through our creations? While colorful can literally mean using a bunch of vibrant colors, it can also just refer to a creative, positive mood.

So with that in mind, there is a bunch you could make! Use bright, bold colors in some cheesy Poptropica Valentine’s Day cards. Dress up your Poptropican in a crazy, vibrant costume. Draw your Poptropican and a bunch of your friends hanging out and just having fun. Write a positive, poppy love story. The list goes on!

Top 5 Picks

Marooned by happyclonetrooper

happyclonetrooper - Marooned

Haha, get it? The Poptropican’s name is Maroon Ring and she’s lost (marooned)… Anyone? No? Well I thought the title was clever and to top it off, her outfit was an old costume contest entry! The drawing was inspired by another artist’s Drawcember prompt set, specifically a snow/ice setup. The lighting is wonderful and everything gives off a strong winter vibe. Super soft and cool!

Santa Claus by Tough Sky

Tough Sky - Santa Clause

This festive costume is dazzling! It’s a perfect image of good ol’ St. Nick and the lights entangling him simply add to his holiday spirit. And I’m curious about that scar… Sledding accident perhaps? Whatever the cause may be, this outfit for sure represents this snowy season. Super cool! Frequently find Tough Sky in the comment section.

Blue Ice by Sporty Boa

Sporty Boa - Blue Ice

Introducing… Blue Ice! A wicked new winter villain! Born on Astro-Knight’s bone-chilling Ice Planet, her backstory is one of cold hearts and harsh motives. Read more about her and other villains here! Not only is this a stylish design, but the attention to origin story definitely gives this drawing some bonus points. Cool concept! (Am I allowed to use the same pun twice? Whoops!) Find SB’s blog here.

Happy Holidays by CrazyPaintBursh

CrazyPaintbrush - Happy Holidays

Super cute! I love the attention to each villain’s winter outfit. Everyone shows a unique emotion and the colors are bright and cheerful. Each outfit fits the villain’s personality perfectly and are all great for the cold season. Gives me positive, family-fun feelings. Amazing holiday card! Find her DeviantArt here.

The Gift of the Poptropican by SuperGrape1

Once upon a time, in a world known as Poptropica, it was the night before Christmas, and all of the Poptropicans in Poptropica were celebrating with holiday cheer. However, meanwhile on Home Island, a Poptropican named Super Grape is seen sitting on a couch inside her house, and she seems to be stressing out about something, and all throughout the house, not a creature is stirring not even a mouse. Suddenly, a fireplace is seen nearby the couch that Super Grape is sitting on, and all of the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. Anyway, the reason that Super Grape was stressing out was that it was Christmas Eve, and the next day it would be Christmas morning, and she had forgotten to get a Christmas present for her boyfriend Incredible Wing. What am I going to do, I have to buy Incredible Wing a Christmas gift at the last minute and all of the stores are going to be closed for Christmas, Super Grape thought as she starts to panic… READ MORE

A classic Christmas tale! A well known holiday plot line is one in which two people give up things they deeply care about in order to buy a loved one a present. Spoiler though! Both gifts closely relate to each object the person gave up and so are both ultimately pointless. Super Grape’s story has lots of similarities to this plot, so it may seem nostalgic to many readers. Buying gifts is a struggle almost everyone can relate to and it’s portrayed well throughout this narrative. Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

CROSSOVERS!

People often say “new year, new me,” right? Well with Poptropica Worlds, it’s kinda like we have a whole new Poptropica! But across our community, we share many other interests and fandoms too. So why not celebrate that in this new year with something… new?
