Fanfic: The Witch’s Heart, Part 2/6 🧙‍♀️

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by HeartOfEnder. Enjoy!

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening everyone! Whatever time it may be, I hope you had a wonderful day, and if you just woke up, I hope that you’ll have a wonderful day! And it will be, because I, HeartofEnder, is back with the second part of The Witch’s Heart

We left off from part one with the white egg minutes, if not seconds, away from hatching. Without further ado, let’s catch up with our heroes!

Eggscellent: You’re a shell of your former self.

SNOW WHITE, CINDER, and RED are staring at the egg, now in a homemade nest, watching the cracks appear one by one. It is quite early in the morning, when most early birds are starting to wake up and catch worms. 

ALOUETTE arrives looking very tired, and her hair looks like a bird just used it as a nest.

SNOW WHITE:

Um, Alouette? Your hair is—

ALOUETTE: 

Oh yea, one second.

With a swish of her wand, ALOUETTE’S hair magically brushes itself, returning to the usual long braid she always has her hair in.

ALOUETTE:

I was going to ask why you decided to wake me up so early in the morning, but I guess my answer is (points to the egg) right here. 

For the next 30 minutes or so, our heroes watch the egg carefully. Finally, the last crack appears and out emerges a small white baby dragon.

ALOUETTE:

(excited) Oh my gosh you’re the cutest thing to ever walk on this island! Except Gwen’s pet owl Merlin, I guess. Actually, he doesn’t count because he flies, therefore has never walked on this island. Still, you’re cuter than Merlin! Look at those big eyes! Awww who’s a good dragon?

CINDER:

(sighs) It hasn’t even been a minute and Alouette has already fallen in love with it. 

ALOUETTE picks up the white dragon and watches it chew the ends of her braid. 

SNOW WHITE: 

At least it likes you back. 

RED:

It’s like a living, four legged, cute little Pearl!

The white dragon stares at Red, responding to the word ‘Pearl’. 

BABY DRAGON: 

Rawr?

RED:

I think I accidentally gave them a name. There goes all the other name ideas I had. 

ALOUETTE: 

Well, Pearl is a cute name, so I guess it works. I can’t wait to show this to my mother! I know she really likes her black cats, and I have suddenly become the owner of a white dragon, so who knows how this will work out.

As if on cue, a black cat suddenly appears from the bushes, holding a small note in her mouth. ALOUETTE picks the note up and reads it out loud.

ALOUETTE: 

Breakfast is ready, don’t know why you left, hurry home before the toast becomes cold as ice, Sabrina. 

RED: 

How does toast become that cold? Magic?

ALOUETTE: 

There’s no questioning a witch’s metaphors, I guess. Wish me luck!

ALOUETTE waves goodbye to her friends before following the black cat back to her house. PEARL the dragon curiously looks around as they enter the dark forest and arrive back at the tower. Her mother is waiting in the living room.

SABRINA: 

Oh hey, I was about to freeze your toast just to show you I wasn’t kidding about—

SABRINA notices the little white creature in her daughter’s hands and stares at it, very concerned. 

ALOUETTE:

You’re gonna tell me we can’t keep him as a pet? 

SABRINA: 

No, you can keep the baby dragon, but it’s something else I’m concerned about.

SABRINA walks towards the window and glances as if she was looking out for something.

SABRINA:

Dragons are very, very protective of their young. They don’t care how you obtained the baby, or if you helped keep them safe, they will show no mercy to claim it back. I fear with that little dragon in your hands—

In the distance, we hear a roar. Over the dark forest, a large shadow flies overhead. Through the massive trees, we see a flash of white scales.

SABRINA:

As I was saying, we better return the baby dragon to its mother before that giant dragon burns down this entire island. We have no time to waste.

TO BE CONTINUED…

What exactly does the giant dragon want from the citizens of Fairytale Island? You’ll have to wait until the next part. I’ll see you guys later!

Fanfic: The Witch’s Heart, Part 1/6 🧙‍♀️

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by HeartOfEnder. Enjoy!

Hello everyone! I’m HeartOfEnder, and I have been playing Poptropica for about three years now. Previously I made two guest posts on the PHB under the alias Spotted Thunder: a Pop Worlds house tour and intro of my Popsonas. If I had to say what my favorite old island is, it’s probably Vampire’s Curse

For the past few weeks or so, I’ve been writing a Poptropica fanfiction called Storm’s Calamity, about a Poptropican named Gwendolyn (Spotted Thunder) and her friends who suddenly have to save Poptropica from an ancient calamity. While writing, I had the idea to make a short story for a guest post here.

This story features Alouette Rees, or Fearless Dragon, one of the main characters in Storm’s Calamity. Alouette is Gwen’s cousin and a talented witch from Fairytale Island. But what exactly is her backstory? That is what this six-part story aims to answer. Without further ado…

The scene is the dark forest from Fairytale Island, focusing on a lone tower in the woods with a sign pointing to it saying ‘Witch’s tower, approach at your own caution.’ There is a small garden outside, but for the most part, not a lot of people visit this tower.

We focus on a newspaper titled ‘Fairytale Newspaper.’ It reads: 

HAPPY ENDINGS STOLEN BY MYSTERIOUS SHADOW, SAVED BY WITCH’S APPRENTICE

Residents of Fairytale Island reported their happy endings were missing on the morning of April 22. While the how is unknown, it was discovered 10 minutes after the incidents were reported that the culprit was a mysterious man disguised as the king, who is now missing. Exact details are unknown at this time. The mysterious man later transformed into a shadow after a Poptropican who seems to be the apprentice of a witch said his name, RumpelStiltSkin, three times. 

All residents affected have received new happy endings, and Fairytale Island is safe again. Forces have been sent to investigate the real king’s whereabouts. 

In other news, Cinder’s debut song, “Take back your flipp’n glass slippers whatever-stilts-man” has reached number one on Poptify. We interviewed her about this extraordinary debut…

The scene zooms away to show SABRINA, a witch with pointed ears, black dress, and a black cat by her side. There is a cup of tea in her hands as she looks up from the newspaper. 

SABRINA: 
New happy endings, huh. How many did you even create under what? 20 minutes?

The scene focuses on ALOUETTE, a younger figure sitting on the other side of her with a bowl of cereal in front of her. 

ALOUETTE:
Three. Some of them are really weird. Did you hear what happened to Cinder? Oh, and that Snow White’s true love was a goat? Out of all things, a goat?

SABRINA nods, aware of all these new endings her daughter managed to create.

SABRINA: 
All these new happy endings are amazing, Witchlet. We women can do our own things, we don’t need knights and princes saving us! That’s right! We are our own saviors! 

ALOUETTE stares at her mom with an odd look, before checking the time and suddenly standing up. 

ALOUETTE:
Shoot! I promised that I’ll help Red with delivering pizzas today! I’ll get breakfast on the way, don’t worry mother! 

With that, she rushes over to a small table where a crystal wand, plus several other mysterious objects, are sitting. Grabbing them in one big swoop and putting them in a satchel, she slides down the stairs and out into the dark forest.

The dark forest hasn’t changed since RUMPEL escaped. As ALOUETTE walks through the forest, she spots something white in the bushes. 

ALOUETTE: 
That’s weird. Maybe it’s a broken piece of wood from someone’s house? Or that one white owl?

ALOUETTE investigates the white object and finds out that it’s not an owl, or a broken piece of wood, but an egg. It’s too big to be a chicken egg though, so what could it be? Where did it come from? ALOUETTE takes the egg and puts it in her bag. Maybe she could find out later.

The scene changes to Red’s Pizza Basket, where RED is preparing to open the shop for the day. ALOUETTE exits the dark forest and immediately heads towards RED.

RED:
Alouette! It’s nice to see you again! What took you so long? Not that I’m angry at you or anything, I’m wondering if something happened that delayed you or something. 

ALOUETTE: 
Not necessarily. Mother’s gloating about my recent mishap with that Rumpel guy. Anyway, found this in the dark forest. 

ALOUETTE shows RED the white egg. RED stares at it in awe. 

RED:
An egg! But what was it doing in the forest?

ALOUETTE: 
(shrugs) Exactly, I don’t know myself. 

RED:
Maybe we can hatch it? Then we’ll find out. 

Just then, CINDER and SNOW WHITE arrive at Red’s Pizza Basket. 

SNOW WHITE:
Hey we thought we might pop in and maybe order a pizza or two-

CINDER notices the white egg on the table.

CINDER:
What is that?! 

SNOW WHITE: 
Aww, it’s an egg! It’s so shiny and cute!

ALOUETTE:
Yea it was just chilling in the dark forest so I decided to bring it with me. Maybe it’ll hatch into something cool? 

SNOW WHITE:
I bet! We’ll help out too. Don’t you two have pizzas to deliver?

ALOUETTE and RED both nod, before waving goodbye to SNOW WHITE and CINDER and getting to work. 

SNOW WHITE and CINDER take the egg to the castle gardens. SNOW WHITE starts making a nest for it, while CINDER plays calming and quiet rock music for the egg. After ALOUETTE finishes helping RED, she sits by the egg and observes it carefully. 

Days pass since the egg was discovered. One fine morning, before most citizens are awake, the egg started to crack…

TO BE CONTINUED…

What animal is going to hatch from the egg? And what kind of adventures will this animal and Alouette go on together? Find out in part two, coming soon to a Poptropica Help Blog near you!

Popspiracy: Amelia is a Villain ☕️

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy Feather. Enjoy!

Dizzy Feather again, continuing with my theory about the Red Baron and Amelia. (Read part one on why the Baron is not the Queen of Fairytale here!) Anyway, in this post I will be discussing how I believe Amelia is a villain. I know it sounds ridiculous, right? But trust me, it’ll make sense.

Let’s start in Amelia’s clubhouse. Right at the doorway lies my first piece of evidence: the deed to Home Island. Although she says she got it to set up her shop, let’s think about it: who else owns a whole island? I can’t think of one in all of Poptropica, and if you ask me, owning an island sounds like something a villain would love.

On the shelf, we see a tea box with a silhouette of E. Vile, the villain from Legendary Swords. It’s probably nothing, but could it also be a hint of its return? Anyway, let’s get back on track…

In her home, we also see a picture of Amelia holding a trophy, with an angry Baron waving a wrench behind her. Another photo shows Xavier and Amelia flying in the plane we rode on in Monkey Wrench Island.

But look the way Amelia’s looking at Xavier and smiling… is it just me, or does she look nervous, like she just did something she doesn’t want him to know about? I think these two pictures are telling a story: Before we came along, Amelia’s co-pilot was Xavier, and one year during the great race, Amelia threw a wrench in the Baron’s plane, which is why the Baron threw one in Amelia’s later on. If I’m right, could that have been what started their rivalry in the first place?

Now over at the Baron’s cabin, there is a picture of the Baron throwing money from a bank down to a group of Poptropicans. If the Baron was a full-on villain, then why wouldn’t she keep the money for herself? Perhaps the bank was stealing money from the people and the Baron was returning it?

My final piece of evidence is in the Baron’s dialogue. After you complete the Baron’s Crusade, you can ask her three questions. When you ask if it’s just her and Ack, the Baron responds, “Mate, when you’ve been in the game as long as I have, you find trust is hard to come by.” I believe she is referring to Amelia breaking her trust at some point.

The Baron has been labeled the villain in the rivalry, but I believe that is wrong. As it once was said in Mocktropica: “There should be an enemy who’s been hiding in plain sight, but who could it be?” 


Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Dizzy Feather. If you did, you might also enjoy part one of her theory about how the Red Baron is Not the Queen of Fairytale Island.

Popspiracy: the Red Baron is Not the Queen of Fairytale Island 👸

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy Feather. Enjoy!

Hello everyone, Dizzy Feather here with a theory on Amelia and the Red Baron. I’m going to split this into two parts. This is part one, where I’m going to be discussing the theory of the Queen mentioned at the end of Rumpel’s Challenge being the Baron. You might have heard that theory, but I’m not here to prove it right. I don’t blame you if you think it is — I thought so too, until I played Rumpel’s Challenge.

Let’s get into why I changed my mind, shall we? The picture that stirred it all up was this one from last Thanksgiving:

Some comments on that post suggested it was showing that the Baron was part of the royal family of Fairytale Island, and possibly was even the queen herself. Both the king and prince are crying, which makes sense considering they are afraid of the queen. Overall, this photo is a solid piece of evidence supporting the queen = Baron theory… or is it?

Let’s look at the photo closer, specifically the background. We see a silhouette of the queen and some cats with red glowing eyes. The queen seems to have long pointy eyelashes, but the Baron only has a few black lines for eyelashes like most female Poptropicans. Also, why would there be a silhouette of the queen with the Baron at the same time if they were the same character? Seems kinda pointless to me.

Let’s move on to our next piece of evidence: cats. A while back, the Pop Creators shared concept art of a character for Fairytale Island. Here it is:


The third picture of the character looks like the statue and the silhouette of the queen. But look at the first one: she’s holding a bunch of cats. In the background of the Thanksgiving photo, she is surrounded by cats. So the queen seems to like cats. As for the Baron? We have never seen her with a cat… in fact we’ve only seen her with one pet, Ack the monkey.

Still, need more proof? How about this golden statue of the Baron wearing a crown in the royal treasury of Fairytale Island?

Looks just like her, though she’s wearing a crown here. Meanwhile, the queen gets her own large statue in the middle of the treasury that looks totally different. Considering that most characters in Poptropica keep the same outfit, they are probably two distinct characters. Truthfully, I don’t see the Baron being an exception to this. So my thought is, the Baron is related to the queen, but she isn’t the queen herself.

The queen’s statue is right in the middle of the treasury with the sleeping dragon.

I came to that conclusion after considering what I shared above. You’re welcome to believe otherwise, but I have my mind made up.

Next time, I’ll be sharing my theory on how Amelia is a villain…

Popspiracy: Rumpel the Treasury Thief 🍍

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Young Rider. Enjoy!

Hello, fellow Poptropicans! I know the Rumpel’s Challenge side quest just opened up for non-members, and while I was looking at a picture in the walkthrough, I happened to notice a few interesting things.

First off, from the Home Island quest, where did Xavier’s statue go? Did it stay in the pond in our backyard where we confronted Xavier? I have an answer. In the top right corner of the treasury, Xavier’s statue lies half submerged in gold. Did Rumpelstiltskin steal it from our backyard?

What if Rumpel dressed up as Xavier and stole the statue? And what is up with that big bag “Xavier” was carrying — was it gold? Looks like the treasury had lots of gold. What if Rumpel was stealing more?

Next, why is there a golden pineapple in the lower corner of the treasury? Sure looks like one of the starter items from when you first get your clubhouse. Speaking of which, where do those starter clubhouse items even come from? What if Rumpel stole them from the treasury of Fairytale Island and sold them to the clubhouse dealer for profit?

That’s all for now, hope you like this post!
