Fanfic: Story of Smart Lightning, Part 2/6 ⚡️

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

Hey everybody! It’s me, Young Rider, back with part two of Smart Lightning’s story. Sorry to keep you waiting — the next one should be here in the upcoming weeks. In case you missed it, here’s part one.

(Continued from Part 1…)

Smart Lightning’s disappearance has had no effect on New Tropican, and nobody has noticed the flash. 

Meanwhile, Smart Lightning panics as she reappears in a tree, near a golden fruit. 

“Hello?” she calls out, taking in her situation.

Another flash appears above her, making her jump.

A loud voice booms out, “Why have you summoned The Flashing?!”

“Who are you?” Smart Lightning responds.

“I am the controller of The Flashing! The wielder of storms! I AM ZEUS!” Zeus shouts, causing Smart Lightning to step back.

Zeus appears above her, along with three cloaked figures. He whispers what sounds like nonsense.

But the cloaked figures step forward, making Smart Lightning take yet another step back. The figures corner her, and she suddenly begins to glow. She does not realize the change, and starts to maneuver around her enemies. It is not until she starts to run that she sees her glowing legs. She stops and stares in shock. 

“Now you see, now you will pay!” Zeus takes the advantage, rushing forward along with the figures.

Smart Lightning seems to be paralyzed with shock, and it is not until she is handcuffed with bonds of light that she regains her senses. She is trapped, and reality sets in as her captors grab her. She stops struggling and lets her captors carry her away…

Meanwhile, Brave Star paces her room with a worried expression on her face. She decides to head out to look for Smart Lightning, bringing an umbrella with her. She asks the people she meets on the way if they have seen her, but nobody has.

She starts to head home, but scorched marks on the path make her pause. They form words: “The friend you seek has left your world, moved on to the land of the rulers.”

Brave Star gasps, remembering her medallion collection. She heads off to a rusty shed, uncovering a worn, yellow blimp…

“The Villain Saga” – Episode 7, Part 2

(Table of contents) (See previous)

CUT TO inside the building. BLACK WIDOW is being led back to her cell.

Once they reach the doors, the guard pulls out his key, letting WIDOW back into her cell. He’s about to head out, but then he hears strange, clanging noises from RAVEN’S cell.


What are you doing?

He knocks on RAVEN’S door.



More noises. The GUARD unlocks it and peeks inside–

RAVEN and WIDOW are both sent back into their cells, RAVEN holding another pie plate. A few days have passed since the last episode.

The guards who brought them up head back to the elevators. The two prisoners stay silent, listening by the doors as the elevator descends.

Once it’s gone:


Finally, they got chocolate this time!

WIDOW wipes some crumbs off her black suit–most of the characters are still wearing their signature outfits, with jackets or name tags or some other identifier over them. After all, no point in looking recognizable if you can’t ever escape.


I think I’m going to get…hypoglycemia, was it? Those things have so much sugar.

RAVEN finishes the pie plate and tosses it to the side of his bed. A fairly respectable pile of tins has formed there.

CUT TO RAVEN and WIDOW’S prison cells again. From both sides of the wall between the cells, we can see that both are sitting on their beds, WIDOW listening to the end of RAVEN’S story.




One of the people here undid the hypnosis on me, and that’s it.


Ah. That’s…a lot.


Pff. It’s okay, most people don’t know what to say either.

(He leans back on his bed, staring at the ceiling.)

I sure don’t know what to think.

“The Villain Saga” – Episode 6, Part 1

(Table of contents)(See previous)


We open inside the window of a shop. A couple dusty toys are on display, but there’s a shiny, new ninja robot in the center of them all, with all kinds of buttons to do different actions.

A small girl with short, unruly black hair peeks into the window, gasping with joy when she sees the toy is still in stock.
