Fanfic: The Witch’s Heart, Part 4/6 🧙‍♀️

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

Heart is back, and it’s been a while! Originally I wanted to finish writing part 4 of my fanfiction, The Witch’s Heart, before school started again, but then I kinda procrastinated with other projects, especially a certain video game about squids… and here we are. 

Now where did we leave off? Oh right, the cliffhanger of what is happening in the castle! All we know is that it’s bad and “he” is behind it all. Well, let’s not leave ourselves hanging and find out the answer! 

Inside the castle, mysterious royal GUARDS with purple eyes walk around aimlessly, carrying barrels of strange liquids, spears, and paper clips. ALOUETTE watches from the balcony. The GIANT DRAGON also flies up to the castle to take a look. 

ALOUETTE: 

Wow, this island can’t get a break. First some guy steals happy endings, now we have this. 

A WHITE DRAGON resembling an older version of Pearl is forced into to a different room by royal GUARDS carrying spears.

ALOUETTE:

This doesn’t look good. Why are they enslaving dragons? Is this why you came to the castle, so you could warn us about this?

The GIANT DRAGON nods.

ALOUETTE:

Guess I’m back on the job again — ’cause I don’t think anyone would believe me if I said the entire castle’s guards were being mind controlled.

ALOUETTE casts an illusion spell that makes her look like the mind-controlled royal guards, before hopping down from the balcony and following the enslaved WHITE DRAGON. 

The GUARDS take the enslaved dragon to a room with multiple chambers filled with purple goop. One of the guards forcibly removes the dragon’s scales and throws them inside a machine, which starts producing purple goop. 

GUARD ONE:

This will be enough to mind-control the entire village!

GUARD TWO: 

Wow! How much is needed to mind-control this entire island?

ALOUETTE starts putting the pieces together: White dragons are enslaved for their scales, which are used to make purple goop, which is used to mind control Poptropicans. She snaps her fingers, removing the illusion spell around her. 

ALOUETTE:

Hey, you guys can’t be doing evil without me! 

The mind-controlled GUARDS turn around, but they’re attacked by a series of fireballs and are knocked unconscious. 

ALOUETTE:

First lesson to saving the world, do it in style! 

ALOUETTE removes the chains around the WHITE DRAGON, who seems relieved that they are no longer enslaved. 

ALOUETTE:

Great, now I continue along my way!

ALOUETTE travels through the castle, along the way fighting guards, freeing dragons, and turning off machines, before finally reaching the very familiar throne room.

ALOUETTE:

This was where that Rumpel guy decided to leave without being defeated. Would be funny if he just showed up right now.

As if on cue, the room fills with purple smoke, which scares Pearl, who hides in Alouette’s bag. When the smoke clears, a very familiar tall figure is standing on the king’s throne.

RUMPELSTILTSKIN:

So we meet again, witchlet. 

Ohohoho, Rumpel is here, that can’t be good. Guess we’ll have to wait to see what he’s planning this time…

I apologize for the slight delay in chapters, because school is now a thing again! Hooray! Besides that, I’ve been eyeing lots of games coming out soon, so it may be a while before my next writing update.

The Witch’s Heart is a short story from the universe of Storm’s Calamity, which is available to read on Tumblr and Quotev. You definitely want to check it out, because things are about to get serious over there. (If you thought chapter 5 was crazy, you aren’t ready for what’s next!)

Heart out!

Fanfic: The Witch’s Heart, Part 3/6 🧙‍♀️

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

Heart is back once again, and we’re halfway through my fanfic! Not long to go before we arrive at the conclusion to Alouette’s tale. It’s been wild in Poptropica recently with the Baron missing, potentially kidnapped by Rumpel. Things are starting to heat up here in The Witch’s Heart, too…

We last left off at the possibility of Fairytale Island being in danger, again. So is it? Time to find out! 

CITIZENS of Fairytale Island are gathering around the king’s castle, where the huge dragon has decided to land. The SEVEN DWARVES are all panicking at the thought of the dragon eating all of Snow White’s animals. Some are speculating that the king is behind this, and overall no one is having a good time.

SABRINA arrives in the middle of the chaos and casts a magic shield around the citizens, protecting them from any incoming dragon attacks. ALOUETTE watches her mother from a distance. 

SABRINA:

Mighty dragon of the unknown lands, we show no harm to you, and we will return your child with no hesitation. 

The giant dragon does not seem to be listening to SABRINA at all. Instead it yawns and continues staring at the citizens. ALOUETTE holds up PEARL so the giant dragon can see it.

ALOUETTE: 

Hey look! Unharmed! I’m handing Pearl back to you! 

ALOUETTE walks towards the dragon and is about to hand PEARL back when the GIANT DRAGON suddenly roars, scaring the SEVEN DWARVES and the THREE LITTLE PIGS. Even PEARL seems scared and immediately curls up into a ball. 

ALOUETTE: 

Weird, if I was a mom, I would do anything to get my children back. Not scare them away. 

Realizing the peacefulness of the dragon, SABRINA lowers the magic shield she put around the citizens, before turning to face them.

SABRINA:

The dragon shows no interest in harming us! We are safe. You may now leave while I figure out why this dragon is even here in the first place. 

Hearing this reassuring news, the CITIZENS leave, knowing that their days could continue along in peace. (Or will they?) SABRINA turns to face the giant dragon again.

SABRINA:

If your child is not what you want, then I have no idea what you want!

ALOUETTE watches the GIANT DRAGON look disappointed, yet also looking at the castle with interest.

ALOUETTE:

Is something happening in the castle? Like you know, a certain goblin kidnapping happy endings again? 

The GIANT DRAGON nods, although still looking disappointed. 

ALOUETTE:

Only one way to find out. 

Climbing up the stairs to the castle, ALOUETTE uses a levitation spell to lift herself up to the balcony. The castle seems quiet, too quiet. ALOUETTE casts another spell, which summons a crystal ball that reveals what is going on in the castle. 

ALOUETTE:

Oh no…

The scene cuts to the gardens outside the castle. 

ALOUETTE: (off screen, shouting)

It better not be him again!!

Birds fly away from the garden and Sabrina looks up at the castle, confused as to what’s going on.

TO BE CONTINUED…

Yeah, this island can’t seem to catch a break. First happy endings are stolen, and now something bad is happening in the castle? And who is the one behind this? Find out when part 4 is out! See you guys later!

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!

For more from this universe, Storm’s Calamity is available to read on Tumblr and Quotev. Enjoy, thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Fanfic: The Princess and the Raven, part 2 👸🏻🐦

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

Hi again! I’m Shy Scorpion and earlier this month I wrote a fan-fiction called The Princess and the Raven based on a picture by a fellow Poptropican named Barefoot Knuckle. I said that I was going to continue it, so now I think it’s time. Hope you enjoy it, here we go… 

“The Princess and the Raven”

An examination room in Dr. Snow White’s veterinary clinic. Dr. Snow White is holding a clipboard and a pen. While Ringmaster Raven sits in a chair and looks around with curiosity and judgement. 

DR. WHITE:
So let’s start this off. How are you today, Mr. Ringmaster Raven? 

RAVEN:
I prefer Mr. Raven, but I am completely fine. 

DR. WHITE:
Good to know! But Mr. Raven, if you are completely fine, then why are you here today? 

RAVEN:
As you know, I had quite the episode and was branded a criminal. Even though I am not in prison anymore, I am still watched closely everywhere I go by the Poptropica justice system. I have been told that I need a physical and mental check, and that you can CLUCK provide that. 

DR. WHITE:
(smiles) Yes, I can. Now let’s start that physical exam? 

DR. WHITE takes a stethoscope to measure RAVEN’S heart rate. Next she looks in his ears, eyes, and mouth. She takes many notes on her clipboard, all while she and Raven ask back and forth questions. 

RAVEN:
CLUCK Why did you decide to open a veterinarian office? 

DR. WHITE:
I’ve always loved animals, and opening a doctor’s office where I could help them was a dream come true. 

RAVEN:
(mutters to himself) CLUCK Must be nice for a dream to come true.

DR. WHITE:
(looks sadly at him for a moment, then brightens) Well, Mr. Raven, you are in excellent shape and are very healthy and strong. Good job! Now we’re going to do the mental exam. Please answer honestly, it makes my job a whole lot easier. 

RAVEN:
(loses self-confidence) Do we CLUCK have to? I CLUCK really don’t feel CLUCK like it today. 

DR. WHITE:
(thinks for a second) Look, Mr. Raven, I get that your life has been pretty rough and that you have done some pretty bad things. But I once read a fortune cookie that said “A bad start doesn’t dictate a bad ending.” So just try! I know you can do this. 

RAVEN:
(looks stunned for a second) Okay, let’s do this.

Well, that’s it for now! Check out the original post by Barefoot Knuckle and the first part of The Princess and the Raven here. I hope you enjoyed this! Be on the lookout for the next part!
