This is a guest post from Serious Heart sharing their My Place in Poptropica story, which is all about one’s Poptropica journey. Enjoy!
Hello everyone! Serious Heart here. I’m not back with the first chapter of The Chronicles of Friendly Thunder yet… please bear with me. 😓 Anyway, I’m doing a My Place in Poptropica story.
My username is kh14129335, and I’m mostly active on the weekends if you’d like to friend me. Well then. Let’s get started with the story.
2016 | Scrolling Past Ads
In 2016, I remember seeing ads for a game called Poptropica. At the time, I scrolled past them with disinterest. But four years later, I came upon the game again…
2020–2021 | Discovering the Game
I re-discovered the game in the late summer or early fall of 2020. I’m not sure exactly how, but I am pretty sure I was looking up “Wimpy Kid games” on the Wimpy Kid fandom, when I saw either Wimpy Wonderland or Wimpy Boardwalk on it.
A couple of days later, I saw an ad for Poptropica on Coolmath Games and decided to check it out. I saw seven characters I could choose from. I picked the “Old School” one, and voila, I ended up in some clubhouse. After learning about how to decorate my clubhouse, I went out and then completed Snagglemast Island.
Next up, Time Tangled! I earned that medallion. Then…Timmy Failure. I probably replayed that the most times. I’ve memorized how to beat it. Then I saw the remastered Mythology Island with a “Coming Soon” sign on it, then later saw it released. One of my most embarrassing memories is how long it took me to complete it.
I loved Poptropica for almost all of 2021. Then, I left Poptropica… because of a really, really crappy reason. You see, it was after Goofball Island had been released. I had introduced my sister to the game, and we decided not to save her account until after we completed Goofball. We were on the boss battle with Anna Gram… then the screen froze. My sister assured me that it was okay, but I was so mad, I quit the game.
Late 2022 | Rediscovering the Game
I found the game again almost a year later, in October 2022. Then I found out a lot had happened when I was gone. Like, Jade Scarab had been released.
In November 2022, I discovered the PHB. At the time, the newest post was the sixth part of a fanfic called The Witch’s Heart. I decided I wanted to make a fanfiction like that, but I didn’t have the courage to do so.
2023–present | A Big Year
2023 is a big year for me. In January, I finally found the courage to comment on the blog. In February, I found Dizzy Feather’s Poptropica Blog and changed my Poptropica name to Serious Heart.
In March, not much happened. But in April, I filled out an application form to be an author on Dizzy Feather’s blog. And the next morning, I was shocked to see an invite from Dizzy Feather, inviting me to be a contributor!
In May, I read through The Witch’s Heart again, and that sparked an idea I had wanted to get out of my head. That’s how The Chronicles of Friendly Thunder came to be.
I don’t know where I’ll go next, but I sure am excited to find out!
