Fanfic: The Pink Knight, Part 1/4 💕🪶

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy FeatherEnjoy!

Hello everyone, I’m Dizzy Feather. Before we get started, I’ll tell you a little about myself. I am ever loyal to the Pathfinders, but if I had to choose another tribe it would be the Seraphim.

Anyway, my fanfiction has four parts. It stars me as my alter ego, the Pink Knight. Plus, find out how you can be part of it below. Let’s go!

The scene is black. A sad melody plays. We hear a female voice.

Once I was a hero.

As she speaks, we see black silhouettes surrounding the Pink Knight in pictures of swordfights and handcuffs.

I defeated countless villains, but one day…

Bird’s-eye view of the Pink Knight’s uniform and sword piled in a chest. Fade to black. We hear the chest lid slam, followed by the rattle of a lock.

I decided to put it all away after I failed my mission. Poptropica has dozens of adventurers — they’ll manage without one more hero.

A phone rings. We see DIZZY FEATHER walk over to a small wooden table to pick up the phone and place it to her ear.

Dizzy, listen, can you come over to my shop real quick? I mean, above my shop — you know where I live.

Uh, sure. Are you OK?

No time to talk, just come over here. Now!

DIZZY FEATHER hangs up and runs out her clubhouse door. AMELIA is calmly sipping tea in her home. DIZZY FEATHER runs into the room, slamming the door behind her.

Oh hi there, would you like some tea?

Wait, what? You sounded like you were being robbed over the phone!

Oh yeah, sorry about that. I had to get you to come over here quickly — you know how you like to take your time. Anyway, here you go.

AMELIA hands DIZZY FEATHER an orange ticket. As DIZZY FEATHER takes it, we see that it says: “PoptropiCon — Admit One — VIP Pass.”

Uh, are you going to the con? Have fun!

No, you’re going to the Con. You see, after the Omegon incident last year, I bought a VIP ticket for the following year so I could send someone to help in case it happened again. I would go myself, but I got a store to run.

You could go, and I could run your store until you’re back.

Sorry, I only trust myself to run my store, and it can’t be closed for an entire week.

Fine, I mean Omegon was defeated last year, what could happen?

Jump to DIZZY FEATHER with a bulging pink backpack, walking around the Poptropica convention. Suddenly, a large red spaceship lands in the back, where the catapult was in episode 1). DIZZY FEATHER drops her drink out of surprise.

DIZZY FEATHER (whispering):
Oh, no! It’s happening.

Flingers: Travel with flair.

That’s it for the first part. In the upcoming parts, I would like to include some of you readers! If you want to be part of this story, just pop in a quick outline in the comments with:

  • who you want you Poptropican to be (villain, hero, anti-villain, etc)
  • your Poptropican’s name
  • your Poptropica username (so I can add you to my friends list)

I will choose two players from the comments of this post and then we can meet up in-game!

  1. I’ll wait till you’re in the game, then invite you to my clubhouse.
  2. Get ready for a screenshot! Just follow me around, then stand a little ways away from me, facing me, so I can take the pic.
  3. I will not contact you, so what your Poptropican says and does in my story is completely up to me.

Hope you like the story so far! Feel free to share what you think will happen next. I look forward to hearing from you in the comments!

Clubhouse Tour: Pink Crush 🏡

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Pink CrushEnjoy!

Hello, Poptropicans! Today, I shall be giving a tour around my clubhouse! Oh, sorry, I was having a mini-spa day, please excuse me for a second…

Ok, that’s better! Alright, where to start… let’s start at the beginning, that’s a good place. This is the doorway, with a lovely flowery wreath to welcome guests. I have a light for the whole house, but I also have built-in lights controlled by my home system. There is a backpack for school, a houseplant, and two light trees. 

I love to chill in my hanging swing chair thing. Feel free to relax, the couch is very comfortable. I just bought the latest TV, which works great. Totally worth the credits. My pets also like to relax in the living room. Speaking of, where are they? 

Ah, there they are. I absolutely love my dear pets. This one is named Luna. She is a rare breed of wolf, and she loves everything nature and the outdoors. She is very energetic and playful. The other pets adore her. 

Here is Mavis, the pet that loves fashion, being pampered, and loves to dress up. She just woke up, so she’s still a bit sleepy. Mavis is a very rare dog breed of a blue border collie. She and Luna share a dog house. It’s a lot bigger than it looks and is super nice and comfortable for the dogs. 😊

This is Taj, the only kitten I have. He is a very, very uncommon mix of tiger and wirehair cat breed. He loves to relax and sleep, A LOT. Even though he loves to nap a bunch, he loves to play and is a bit classy as well with outfits. He isn’t wearing it now, but he has a blue bowtie that he LOVES, but it got dirty so it’s in the washing machine upstairs. 

This is the pet area, with toys, bowls of water, and food. I hope in the future I can get many more pets and expand the playroom, but this will do for now. Every week, if there are new outfits and toys at the clubhouse store and Adventure Outfitters for the pets, I buy them. 

Here is the kitchen. Help yourselves to anything in the fridge. I also bought some cake and ice cream if you would like some. It’s chocolate cake and Zomberry ice cream. Trust me, it’s really good.

I’m thinking of either getting pizza or ice cream. Hmm… let’s do pizza. *eating pizza* 🍕Wow, this is good.

So, over there is a water dispenser and a vending machine for soda and drinks… Hey! Luna, don’t eat that! Cake isn’t for dogs, it’s for Poptropicans only. Sorry, Luna. Anyway, let’s move on. 

Here is the hallway! I re-did it a bunch of times, and I like it. Over there is a hammock I like to nap or relax in. Here we have my laundry baskets. (I need to do laundry later!)

We have a big plant and a tropical tree for decoration. I have a big treasure chest full of stuff from past adventures, memories, pictures of friends, and lots of other stuff important to me.

I have a picture frame of a cactus, and windows which each have candles. 🕯 I always have to be careful so the candles don’t knock over or something to cause a fire. Yikes! 

Now it is hard to see, but a little above, hold on… there we go! Here is all of the equipment that I need for the sports I play. I do these things occasionally when the weather is right. Usually, on Tuesdays and Fridays, I go to either Midas’s Gym or Bert’s Basement Gym on Mythology and Pelican Rock Islands.

I also like to stop at Ye Old Roastery on Fairytale Island. They have great muffins, and they also… oh sorry, getting a bit carried away. Anyways, based on my sports equipment, I bike, snowboard, surfboard, skateboard, play tennis, soccer, basketball, and volleyball. A lot, I know. 

Here is my office. We have my bookshelf, a humidifier, my home voice system “Poppy,” my table to the right with candles and cards, and my upper shelves with my telescope, radio, and speaker. I also have a leaf thing for decoration and a light-up heart above my computer.

I do my school work on my trusty computer and play games such as Legendary Swords. (I just started playing, so I am still learning how the game works!) You can’t see it, but upstairs I have the bathroom, washroom, pantry, and storage room. 

Last but not least, my favorite room: my bedroom! I have my unicorn plushy on my bed, and above it is a butterfly decoration, red flower drapes, a moon dreamcatcher, a string of lights with photos of my friends, and a green strand with pinecones. On the left, there’s my dresser with a neon heart lamp and a sparkly lamp. 

Well, that’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed my tour! I like to switch out the decorations, so it definitely won’t stay the same for long.

My username is GoldenPuppy3 if you’d like to visit, and you can find me in both the comments on the PHB and the official Poptropica Creators’ Blog. See you soon. Keep on Crushing it!

Battle Morale: an interview with Pop movie producer Invisible Ring 🌠🎥

Hey Poptropicans, if you’ve been hoping against hope for the way the game’s been going, this might just be the pick-me-up for you.

Battle Morale is a feature-length Poptropica fan movie by Invisible Ring and released only last month. You can watch the full film below. Plus, scroll down for a PHB-exclusive interview with the perky producer!

Battle Morale tells the story of an optimistic Poptropican — Ring starring as herself — seeking hope and truth in a dark and pessimistic world. Along the way, she goes on a mission to retrieve pirate treasure, confronts a former Pop Creator on the world’s troubles, and dives into the deep rivalry between Amelia and the Baron. We won’t spoil everything here, but invite you to join the journey in the video above!

And now, let’s welcome our special guest to chat with us about her inspirations and process of pulling off this project: the kindred kid and the Poptropican of passion, Invisible Ring!

Ring: Hee hee hee… I like those alliterations! …So what’s up? 

Fishy: Invisible Ring, we are nothing short of amazed at your new movie, and we want to hear more. Our first question is, how did you do it? How did your story come together and what was the process like?

Pop Petition: Bring back early access tickets

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Silver ShellEnjoy!

Hi Poptropicans! Welcome to another Pop Petition! I’m talking about early access tickets today. Let’s get into it!

So back in the day, when new islands were released, you could buy these early access tickets from the store, which allowed you to access islands a month or so before it was released to the public.

Nowadays, the latest Dream Islands (Goofball and Fairytale) are obviously for everyone to play, but every time an old island gets converted, it’s for members only. Not only that, but it seems to stay that way for a long while.

Take Mission Atlantis for example. Episode 1 was brought back two months ago, but it’s still reserved for members only. I don’t have a problem with stuff being members only because Poptropica needs the money, but for this long? That’s a bit disappointing.

Early access cards existed before membership came to Poptropica — so islands during the early access period were available to anyone who chose to buy the ticket from the store with their credits.

However, now that membership exists, it would look a bit different if they were to return. Islands could have an early access period for members, but non-members could also get a chance to play new islands during that time by getting the ticket, which would have to be pretty expensive. At least if players are paying by credits, it’s a lot more accessible to most kids than a real life credit card for membership!

Well, that’s my idea. Thanks for reading!

Pop 5: Things You Need to be Poptropica’s Antagonist 😈

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Silver ShellEnjoy!

Hey Poptropicans! Recently, Purple Paw made a post about how to be Poptropica’s protagonist, which inspired me to write a Pop 5 post about being its antagonist — the enemy who actively opposes the hero.

You’re always saving Poptropica: doing good deeds, helping people, protecting the planet, et cetera. But what if you feel like doing something different for a change, being a villain just this once? If so, you’ll need traits that check off this list:

5: A Thirst for Revenge

Countless Poptropica villains had a sad background that fueled their anger and their need to take revenge. Take Ringmaster Raven. His village treated him terribly and later forced him out, and he chose to turn the entire village into monsters. If you’re a villain, you’re usually acting out because of anger and the need for revenge.

4: A Way With Technology

In plenty of islands, the villain messes around with technology to defeat you, like how Gretchen Grimlock pretended to be Harold Mews to get the location of Bigfoot, or how Director D used mini-robots to stop you from getting to his spaceship. Being a villain requires using technology a lot of the time, so learn to be tech-savvy!

3: A Unique Outfit

The protagonist of the island (you) usually wears whatever they want, wherever they want. But the villain should have a noticeable, awesome costume that makes them stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s pirate attire or a bunny costume, be sure to find a cool outfit to show you’re a villain.

2: An Awesome Villain Name

For some small, not-super-important villains, like Gretchen Grimlock, Dr. Silva, Ghost Story’s magistrate Henry Flatbottom and more, they use their own basic names. But the best of the best, like Binary Bard, Dr. Hare, the Black Widow, and Captain Crawfish, have a really cool villain alias that makes them iconic and infamous. Go for greatness.

 1: Trickery

Tons and tons of villains have deceived you to get what they want. From Zeus stealing your sacred items to Binary Bard masquerading as the Princess of Arturus, it happens a lot. To be a successful antagonist, you must be willing to resort to trickery.

So, how many of these did you get? Have you got everything it takes to be a true villain? If you don’t think this is for you, you can always go back to being the good guy. Thanks for reading!
