Guest Blog: Fairytale Island Fanfiction (Part 1) by Golden Horse 🐎💛
Note: This was written before the Fairy Tale island side quest was released, and before the king was found. This is what I had thought should happen right after the completion of Fairy Tale island.
(Continuing from the completion of Fairy Tale Island.)
(At the Palace.)
Ameilia: If I've ever learned anything about bad guys in Poptropica, it's that they always come back. Keep an eye out for that one.
(Poptropican goes up to the prince.)
Prince: Where's my real dad!
Poptropican: I wish there was something I could do to help him. . .
Mysterious Voice: There is.
Poptropican: What! Where?
Mysterious Voice: Go to the land of Aveyron, there you will find a castle, the Chateau de Belcastel.
Poptropican: Huh? What's this?
(Poptropican picks up a small dagger. The words 'Rymenhild of Aveyron' are inscribed on it)
Poptropican: Were you talking to me?
(Snow White runs up to Poptropican.)
Snow White: Quick, Adventurer! Come see!
(Snow White and Poptropican run to the stables.)
Snow White: The Unicorn is well now, and guess who he is.
(Snow White throws open the stable door. A beautiful pure white unicorn steps out of the stables.)
Snow White: It's one of the Lost Unicorns of Aveyron!
Player: What! Aveyron?
Snow White: Yes, many years ago. . .
(Screen switches to storytelling comic-like panel.)
Snow White's Dialog: Once upon a time, there was a herd of wild unicorns that lived peacefully in the land of Aveyron. They were special, and each had unique powers. But one day, an evil villain came and spread havoc across the land.
(Dark silhouette in front of a burning village.)
Snow White's Dialog: The Unicorns banded together and used their powers against the villain.
(Picture of Unicorns defeating the dark silhouette.)
Snow White's Dialog: After the villain was defeated, he fled Aveyron to continue spreading havoc across the world.
(End of storytelling comic-like strip. Switches back to regular screen.)
Snow White: Or so they say. . .
Poptropican: The WHOLE world?!
Snow White: Well, Granny knows more about it than I do, maybe you should ask her.
Poptropican: I will.
(Poptropican walks to Granny's cottage in the woods. Poptropican enters the cottage.)
Granny: Hi, deary. What brings you to my humble abode?
Poptropican: Tell me what happened to the Unicorns of Aveyron after they defeated the villain.
Granny: There ain't much to tell. But when I was a little girl, I heard stories. . .
(Screen changes to another storytelling comic-like strip.)
Granny's Dialog: After the Unicorns defeated the villain, he disappeared. The Unicorns then disguised themselves to look like normal unicorns and dispersed all over the lands to search for the villain.
(End of storytelling comic-like strip. Switches back to Granny's cottage.)
Poptropican: Do you know where the villain or the King is?
Granny: As far as I know, they haven't found either yet, but I haven't been out in a long time.
Poptropican: How long?
(Red bursts through the door.)
Red: My granddaddy used to deliver to her, that's how long! You're not filling another adventurer's head with nonsense again, are you Granny?
(Granny coughs innocently.)
Red: Adventurer, Snow White needs you. She says the future of Poptropica is at stake!
(Poptropican dashes out of the cottage, and goes back to the stables.)
Snow White: The Unicorn says he needs to talk to you!
Poptropican: The Unicorn talks!
Unicorn: I'm right here, you know.
Poptropican: Oops, sorry.
Unicorn: That's okay. A mysterious voice told me you needed my help. So I summoned you.
Poptropican: Oh yeah, the voice. We need to find the King!
Unicorn: Hop on.
Poptropican: Really? Cool!
(Poptropican hops onto the Unicorn, and they gallop away. They reach the land, Aveyron.)
(Above the sleepy village, the castle, Chateau de Belcastel, is located at the top of a cliff. Poptropican and Unicorn are below, in a "busy" marketplace.)
Poptropican: Let's ask someone to lead us to the top.
(Poptropican walks into a small shop, Ye olde Belcastel Gifts.)
Shop Owner: What can I get ye this day?
Poptropican: I need a guide to lead me to the castle.
Shop Owner: I cannot, therefore, grant thee help.
Shop Owner: The Castle be haunted!
Poptropican: I’m not afraid of ghosts.
Shop Owner: Ye will be if ye go there.
(Poptropican leaves Ye old Belcastel Gifts.)
Poptropican: Whoa, people sure talk funny around here.
(An old man is standing just outside the door.)
Wizened old Man: Are you going to the Chateau de Belcastel?
Poptropican: Yes. Can you take me?
Wizened old Man: My bones be too feeble to face the great Evil, only the Heir can make it.
Poptropican: Who's the Heir?
Wizened old Man: I will give thee a clue, to help ye find what ye seek.
(Wizened old Man gives Poptropican a worn old paper.)
These three items you must have,
To find the Heir to Aveyron's Throne.
Clarent, Arthur's sword from stone,
The Armor of Beowulf,
And, the Key to Rymenhild's Fir.
(On the edge of the paper are the words Moon Whisper.)
(Poptropican reads the clue, then turns around to find the Wizened old Man gone.)
Poptropican: He didn't stay long.
(Poptropican goes to the Field to look for Arthur, to hopefully get his sword. Arthur is on horseback, training warriors.)
Arthur: Now remember, always be loyal to your commanding officer, even if you've just pulled a sword from a stone and became king. Trust me, I know from experience.
Poptropican: Hey Arthur, can I have your sword?
Arthur: Daring me to a duel, are you?
(Arthur pulls out his sword.)
Poptropican: No, no! I was asking for your sword.
Arthur: Thou shalt not disarm me!
(Poptropican retrieves a sword from the ground and duels Arthur. After a long hard battle, Poptropican wins.)
Arthur: Ugh! You only won because I forgot about the Prophecy. Many have tried to take my dear Clarent from me, but all had failed. Except you.
(Arthur gives Poptropican the sword.)
Poptropican: Thanks, and would you mind telling me the Prophecy?
Arthur: Not at all.
(Arthur gives Poptropican a piece of paper.)
Ye shall not falter,
Ye shall guide us on our path,
Ye shall protect us from harm,
And Ye shall subdue the Evil.
(On the edge of the paper are the words Wind Breath.)
Poptropican: Wow, that's deep.
Arthur: If you ever decide to leave adventuring, maybe you can join me as a knight.
Poptropican: In your dreams!
(Poptropican leaves Field, and goes to Hrothgar's Hall to find Beowulf and the next item on the list.)
(Outside the hall stands Hrothgar, king of the Danes.)
Poptropican: Who are you?
Hrothgar: I am Hrothgar, king of the Danes. That's a beautiful unicorn ye have. It reminds me of something I heard once.
Poptropican: What's that?
Hrothgar: Something of a poem, here it is.
(Hrothgar gives Poptropican a piece of paper.)
And ye shall call the herd home again,
Each by the names,
Ye have been given.
(On the edge of the paper are the words Sky Wings.)
Hrothgar: Beautiful piece. Anyway, what brings you to my Hall?
Poptropican: I'm looking for Beowulf.
Hrothgar: He is inside, celebrating after defeating the great beast, Grendel.
(Poptropican enters the hall. Beowulf and Hrothgar's knights are ravenously devouring food.)
Beowulf: That be me.
Poptropican: Can I have your armor?
Beowulf: Well, I didn't need it to defeat Grendel. Hand to claw, I used mine own strength and won.
(Beowulf gives his armor to Poptropican.)
Poptropican: Wow! That was easy.
(Suddenly, the hall starts shaking. The knights hide under their tables.)
Random Young Knight: Grendel hath returned!
Beowulf: Nay, it is Grendel's Mother, come to get revenge. Have faith, brave and gallant knights, I shall defeat her.
(Beowulf runs out of the hall. Hrothgar runs into the hall.)
Hrothgar: Adventurer, you must leave! It's too dangerous here!
