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

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

Wow, can you believe we’re finally at the last part of The Witch’s Heart? I want to thank everyone who tuned in to this crazy journey with me. Catch up on Part 5 here if you haven’t already!

Without further ado, let’s enjoy the finale…

Crystal Caves: Untold riches await, for those who dare.

(Missed the earlier parts of the story? Find Part 1 here!)

ALOUETTE is standing on a large field, facing a large group of white dragons who are all awaiting commands from their leader. The WHITE DRAGON is at the very front, looking at the young witch. 

ALOUETTE 

I think he belongs to you. 

ALOUETTE opens her bag and takes out PEARL, who has claimed the bag as his ‘nest’. She hands PEARL to the WHITE DRAGON, before taking a step back. 

ALOUETTE

Goodbye Pearl. You have a family to go back to. You’ll be safe with them. Goodbye dragons. Have a safe trip back home. 

ALOUETTE turns around to leave, but the WHITE DRAGON stops her. 

The WHITE DRAGON glances at PEARL, who seems a little sad. They turn to face the other dragons, before handing PEARL back to ALOUETTE. 

ALOUETTE

You’re leaving Pearl with me? 

The WHITE DRAGON nods, before roaring at the sky and taking off, the other dragons following closely behind. ALOUETTE and PEARL watch them leave for their home. PEARL waves goodbye to the dragons, until they disappear into the clouds. ALOUETTE then starts heading back home after a long day. Fairytale Island had just been saved again, after all. Hopefully Rumpel wouldn’t come back for a while.

When she arrives home, she is surprised to find her mother talking with someone else. Someone she saw before when Rumpel stole the happy endings. Although she couldn’t remember their name…

SABRINA

Welcome home, dear. Say, have you met Amelia yet? 

ALOUETTE

Amelia?

The guest, AMELIA, stands up. In her hand is a letter. 

AMELIA

It’s nice to meet you, Alouette. Your mom told me about your previous two adventures on Fairytale Island. You can never trust a man with magic powers. Never.

ALOUETTE

*annoyed* Especially if he escapes twice. 

AMELIA looks at ALOUETTE before handing her the letter. 

AMELIA

We’ll never know when Rumpel will strike the island again. This letter is my gift to you, to prepare you for when he comes back. 

ALOUETTE reads the letter:

To: Alouette Rees (Fearless Dragon)

You have been invited to join Camp Bravery, a summer camp for curious adventurers to sharpen their skills and answer the call of help when needed. 

You have answered the call of help from Fairytale island not just once, but twice. Rumpelstiltskin may have escaped you both times, but you already show potential in defeating him once and for all. You helped Red, Snow white, and Cinder find new happy endings, and rescued the white dragons from Rumpel. You showed us that your heart is pure and full of kindness you’re willing to lend to others. 

The new camp year will start on July 2, please let us know if you will accept this invite before June 20. We will be awaiting your response.

Amelia Earhart & Red Baroness, Camp Founders

AMELIA

I believe that if you join Camp Bravery, you will be able to perfect your abilities enough to take down Rumpel when he strikes again. I do hope you like the alias I gave you. It was fitting considering what you did to save the dragons. The choice is yours, Alouette. 

ALOUETTE turns to face her mother, who smiles and gives a nod of approval. PEARL also nods, chewing ALOUETTE’s hair out of boredom. 

ALOUETTE

I’ll accept the invite. I want to be able to protect my home island like my mom did years ago. I want to become powerful enough to defeat Rumpel. 

AMELIA smiles, taking a sip of tea.

AMELIA

I am happy to hear that. Also, what kind of tea is this? I like it. 

SABRINA

It’s dragon leaf tea. 


We skip ahead to June 28. ALOUETTE is standing on the docks of Fairytale Island with PEARL on her shoulder, excited to go on a new adventure. She watches the ferry crew load her luggage onto the boat. 

SABRINA approaches her daughter with a leather bag. 

SABRINA

Give this to Amelia when you reach the camp, okay? It’s dragon leaf tea, so be careful with it. Okay?

ALOUETTE takes the bag from her mother.

ALOUETTE

Of course I will. Amelia’s going to love your gift so much. I can already see her face of happiness. 

The CAPTAIN of the ferry grabs a megaphone to make an announcement.

CAPTAIN

Attention passengers boarding the ferry to Camp Bravery! We will be leaving soon, so please start boarding the boat.

SABRINA takes a look at her daughter one last time.

SABRINA

You have fun, my dear witchlet. Make new friends, learn new spells. Go make me proud, dear. And remember to write, too.

ALOUETTE nods, waving goodbye to her mother before turning away to board the boat. PEARL waves goodbye to SABRINA as they head into their new journey. There would be new friends, new opportunities, and most importantly, new lessons and skills awaiting the young witch.

And in three years’ time, a calamity to answer. But that’s another story…

Cause a Row: Hope may float, but sometimes dreams need to sink.

And with that, The Witch’s Heart is complete. But that does not mean Alouette’s story is over. 

If you want to continue following her journey, then check out Storm’s Calamity, my other fanfiction on Tumblr and Quotev, where things are crazier than what Rumpel has managed to cause so far.

And keep an eye out on the PHB as well, since I have plans to write another short fanfiction series exploring the origins of another character from Storm’s Calamity.

Thanks for reading The Witch’s Heart! I will see you later. 

Heart out!

Fanfic: The Witch’s Heart, Part 5/6 🧙‍♀️

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

It’s been a while, but we’re almost there! Let’s do a quick recap from where we left off: The members of the royal castle seem to be mind controlled. Together with Alouette the young witch, Pearl, and another dragon, we finally arrive at the throne room and come face to face with Rumpelstiltskin. So where will this go next? Only one way to find out…

(Missed the earlier parts of the story? Find Part 1 here!)

The WHITE DRAGON hisses at RUMPEL, clearly not happy to see him. RUMPEL looks down at the trio from his throne.

RUMPEL

I see you’re trying to play hero again. 

ALOUETTE

Says the one who decided to abuse dragons. 

RUMPEL gets up from his throne, revealing a giant crystal behind him. 

RUMPEL

I’ve been using this crystal to bring these beautiful little winged lizards to me so I can harvest their scales and use them to transform everyone on this island into my minions. That Queen won’t have things her way anymore. Once she comes back, I’ll get my revenge on her with my new army! 

RUMPEL snaps his fingers, summoning some of the mind-controlled royal guards to his side. 

RUMPEL

I said the entire island, didn’t I? Luckily for you, that includes you too… minions! Get her!

The mind-controlled royal guards charge forward to attack, but ALOUETTE quickly dodges their attacks by launching herself in the air, summoning her broom, and riding on it.

ALOUETTE

Ha! Can’t get me when I’m up here! Unless they have crossbows and throwing spears…

ALOUETTE starts attacking the guards from the sky, firing different spells at them. The guards, who only had swords and short-ranged weapons, don’t stand a chance against her.

RUMPEL watches his minions being defeated one by one, not impressed with their performance. He grabs the defeated minions and throws them out of the throne room. 

RUMPEL

Guess they were too easy for you. Maybe this will be a challenge, witchlet.

He summons three orbs that chase after ALOUETTE, all of them barely missing her. ALOUETTE starts flying towards the crystal, barely dodging all of the attacks. The WHITE DRAGON and PEARL watch the battle, scared.

ALOUETTE

Rumpel’s crystal is really, really, big. I can’t destroy it with a single spell. 

ALOUETTE fires a laser beam from her wand, damaging the crystal and leaving small cracks across it. She circles around the crystal, spreading the cracks further.

RUMPEL fires another purple blast, knocking ALOUETTE off her broom. She lands on the ground, facing RUMPEL.

RUMPEL

Still trying to play hero? You will never defeat me, not this ti—

RUMPEL is cut off by the sound of wings flapping nearby. The WHITE DRAGON flies around the crystal, firing a fireball at it and spreading the cracks further. The crystal shatters, sending smoke and crystal shards flying everywhere. ALOUETTE casts a shield spell around herself for protection.

When the smoke clears, the guards seem to return to their senses, no longer mind-controlled. However, RUMPEL is nowhere to be seen…

Crystal Caves: Untold riches await, for those who dare.

At least Fairytale Island is safe again! Rumpel may still be on the run, but if his last visit on the Baron’s airship is any indicator, maybe he isn’t the villain? Make sure to tune in when the final part of The Witch’s Heart drops on the PHB! 

The Witch’s Heart is a short story from the universe of Storm’s Calamity, which is available to read on Tumblr and Quotev. Besides these stories, I’ve also been writing other fanfics on Quotev — Subnautica fans may want to check that out, too.

Also, I’m planning another short fanfic series similar to The Witch’s Heart, diving into the origins of another character from Storm’s Calamity. Who will the lucky character be? That’s for another time… 

Heart out!

“The Villain Saga” – Episode 5, Part 1

(Table of contents) (See previous)

FADE IN.

We open on a wide shot displaying Erewhon Prison. It’s a rare non-stormy day, where bits of sunlight can actually be seen through the fog. The island is in perpetual shadow, but you can just barely tell it’s afternoon.

CUT TO inside the prison, on the first floor near the doors. Only a couple guards are stationed there, one sleeping and the other playing a game of solitaire on a work computer.

The camera heads to the elevator, then speeds up the building. We at last arrive at Floor 13, where a guard is leading DR. HARE into the medical and testing side. The doors to JUPITER’S strange machinery remain closed and locked.

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!

“The Villain Saga” – Episode 4, Part 3

(Table of contents) (See previous)

CUT TO BARD standing alone in an elevator. A quick look at a camera shows he somehow bent it away from the corner he’s in.

As the elevator descends, time appears to slow a bit. BARD’S face turns more serious and contemplative, as he flexes his robotic hand a couple of times, studying how the joints move and react to his nerve signals. He’s gotten used to seeing it constantly for years, but sometimes he still has to notice the difference from what used to be there.

A plastic cup is spilled on the floor next to him, with soda and ice cubes leaking out. He picks up an ice cube in his left hand, his human hand, and holds it for a moment, feeling the cold. He switches it to his right, and keeps it pinched between his fingers with no discomfort.

BARD

(under his breath)

There are some things I’ve yet to learn to replicate.
