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!

The Villain Saga – Episode 3, Part 3

(Table of contents) (See previous)

INT. FLOOR 13, OUTSIDE DR. JUPITER’S LAB

The elevator door opens, and the group enters. This floor is even darker than the rest of the prison, with little to no windows and a sparse amount of dim, yellow lights.

DIRECTOR D.

Cheery.

DR. HARE

Oh wow, it’s almost like this is a prison.

“The Villain Saga” Episode 3, Part 2

(Table of contents) (See previous)

CUT TO: DR. HARE being led to D. and MOREAU’S office.

DR. HARE

All right, I got the gist of it. You want me to do the dirty work for you so you can achieve some sort of thing?

MOREAU and DIRECTOR D. stare at each other. They’ve been uncovered. Their plan is ruined, if Hare can figure this out, then how long will it be until the others–

DIRECTOR D.

We didn’t–

DR. HARE

Hey, I was joking. Of course you’re helping me! Why else would you offer to work with someone as great as myself?

MOREAU hides her amusement and relief behind the clipboard she’s holding.

MOREAU

I must ask…how did this whole “rabbit” theme start?

DR. HARE

First off, it’s hare, not rabbit. And oh, it’s a long and glorious story! Some say it was tragic, but I say it was destiny, if such a thing exists!

(His backstory is shown in childlike crayon scribbles, while his speech becomes increasingly impassioned.)

“The Villain Saga” Episode 3, Part 1

(Table of contents) (See previous)

FADE IN.

We open on DR. JUPITER in his office, which is buried in papers that have been ignored for weeks at least. On his desk are two diagrams he’s editing. To the left is one of a machine, quite similar to what RAVEN saw before. To the right, heavily shadowed, appear to be some sort of magical instructions.

A knock on the door. JUPITER quickly shuffles the paper away among the others. A GUARD enters.

GUARD

Dr. Jupiter, we just had to intercept another major fight in the lunchroom.

JUPITER

Any injuries? I hope the high-risk ones weren’t involved.

GUARD

A little bump here and there, but that’s it. And no, the “Big Four” are still eating separately.

JUPITER

Ah, good. I want them kept well for what’s going on this week.

The GUARD looks uncertain, especially towards JUPITER’S clear prioritizing of certain inmates. She pauses.

GUARD

With all due respect, Dr., I feel that if we started more programs for the less dangerous inmates, they might have a higher chance of rehabilitation.

DR. JUPITER stands, sighing.

JUPITER

“With all due respect”, we are a HIGH-RISK prison. None of those here have any hope. All we can do is see what use they have while they remain here.

GUARD

But some of them are quite peaceful–that, raven man, for example. I don’t think it’s right to focus on what they can just do for us–

DR. JUPITER glares at her. The GUARD falls silent. A dark aura seems to appear around him.

DR. JUPITER

I will not have any of this. Good day, miss.

The GUARD freezes, opens her mouth, then closes it. She turns and leaves the office. Once the door is closed, DR. JUPITER rolls his eyes and reaches for the phone.

DR. JUPITER

Yes…I’m interested if we can hire new guards.

CUT TO Dr. Hare, sitting by himself in the lunch room, nibbling on a carrot and completely ignoring the rest of his food.

A green-haired man rushes to the window, tapping on it rapidly.

DR. HARE

Ugh, what’s going on Spike?

SPIKE

Heyhey Dr. Hare! You should have seen it!

DR. HARE

Seen what?

Several guards come and try to pry SPIKE from the window, but he keeps talking.

SPIKE

The fight! It was epic! Even that Dr. D…dude…was impressed! Very!

DR. HARE

What is with him watching everyone eat lunch?

The GUARDS finally pull SPIKE away from the window and take him away. HARE shrugs and turns back to his carrot.

HARE

Eh, we’re all up to something here.
