I’m Quitting The Blog :'(

I’m…really sorry, guys.  I just too stressed out with school right now to be running my own blog. I will still play Poptropica, I will still be on the PHC, and I will still be posting on the other blogs I work on, but not very often. It’s just that this is a solo blog, which means that it is a much bigger responsibility.

However, the blog itself won’t become dead. I gave ownership to someone else.

Oh, and sorry that there was no theory today. 😦

The Totem Curse- Chapter 13: An Unlikely Hero Part 1

Continued from Chapter 12

In just 4 days, Poppy had saved Early Poptropica, Monkey Wrench, Shark Tooth, and Time Tangled. She was finally the explorer who would visit every single island in all of Poptropica. The thing she didn’t know, though, was that her parents were super worried and had called the police and other emergency services to find her and bring her back home. They were starting to get worried that Poppy was kidnapped or something. And Daisy didn’t even care that much.

On the fifth morning, she landed her blimp on 24 Carrot Island, just to find the worse. Buildings were falling apart, and the people living there were in a terrible mood.

Mayor: “Help us! All of our carrots have been stolen! And carrots are 24 Carrot Island’s main purpose. So, in just a couple weeks, the island’s entire economy has fallen apart! Now we are stuck on the streets with no jobs.  I have no idea who caused this. *cries*”

Poppy: “I don’t understand. How can entire island’s economy fall apart in just a few weeks? Makes no sense to me. Maybe I-”

Just then a waiter from the local diner came running up to the mayor, holding a few pictures.

Waiter: “OH NO!!! 4 kids went missing yesterday- and one of them is my son! WAHHH!!!!!”

Poppy: “Don’t worry. I can help.”

Waiter: “Why should we trust you? You’re just a kid. You could just get kidnapped like my son was! WAHHHHH!!!!!”

Poppy just walked away.

A Few Hours Later…

Poppy: “Yasss….I finally got in this old factory! Maybe I will finally-AHHH!!!”

The kids who had gone missing had weird robotic bunny ears on their heads and spinning green eyes. They were being mind controlled!

Kid: “What. Are. You. Doing. Here? Dr. Hare. Must. Stop. The. Intruder immediately! Fellow minions assemble!”

The other three kids race to where Poppy was standing.

Poppy: “Uh…well I’m really sorry about this, but I gotta go…”

Poppy then quickly ran away from Dr. Hare’s minions and entered the closest room she could find. She ran so quickly that the security system couldn’t even check to see if she was a minion or not.

However, the room she entered was not what she thought it would be- the was a giant robot rabbit thing, and suddenly she saw a full grown man in a bunny suit yell, “Who are you, and how did you get through my security systems? I’m the evil genius Dr. Hare!”

Poppy: “You’re Dr. Hare?!? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!”

Dr. Hare: “Yes, and why are you laughing at an evil genius like me?!?”

Poppy: “If you’re some kind of “evil genius,” then why are you wearing a bunny suit?!? HAHAHAHAHAHA-”

Dr. Hare: “Because I want to, and since I’m an adult I do whatever the heck I want. So please stop before I stop you myself.”

Poppy kept laughing, which was a very bad decision.

Dr. Hare: “That’s it. Minions, come over here and help me get these rabbit ears on this here little girl.”

Poppy: “I’m not a little girl! I’m 13!”

Dr. Hare: “Whatever. I started high school when I was 13.”

The mind-controlled kids then put a pair of rabbit ears on Poppy. However, they forgot to turn them on, which only Poppy knew.

Dr. Hare: “Now Poppy, go use this password to launch my Rabbot into space. In space I will mind control all of Poptropica. Then I will finally be able to rue the world….and steal every carrot in the universe! Muhahahahaha!”

Dr. Hare then jumped into his Rabbot.

Poppy had no choice but to type in the password. But as the Rabbot launched, she realized that she had full control over the Rabbot. So she made it crash into a few asteroids.

Dr. Hare: “NOOO!!! YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO ME!!! AHHH!!!!”

The Rabbot broke, and was left floating around in outer space- with Dr. Hare still in it.

After defeating Dr. Hare, Poppy was officially considered a hero. She got another medallion from the mayor, and she was all over the news. Soon everyone in Poptropica knew of her heroism…including her parents, who were no longer so angry at her.

But know she was being forced to continue saving islands. So it was no surprise that just a few days later she was in a castle somewhere in outer space, in battle with the Binary Bard.

She had landed on Astro Knights Island a day earlier, where Arturus had been destroyed by “invaders from beyond the sky.” She learned about an inventor named Mordred who helped the kingdom, but was accused of dark magic and eventually escaped into space. Most people had thought that he had died…except for Princes Elyana (who he ended up kidnapping) and the Order of Mordred.  She put together the clues, and ended up on a mission to space to save Elyana, and also some knights along the way. There was then this whole Chosen One portal thingy and all (the Crystal Gate) and Poppy ended up at the Bard’s fortress.

With the help of Merlin and Elyana, Mordred was defeated, and like Dr. Hare, trapped in space, this time in his castle.

Poppy: “That was my most stressful adventure yet! I almost died…like 5 times. Ugh.”

Little did she know that that was only the beginning of her adventures as the Unlikely Hero of Poptropica…

TO BE CONTINUED IN CHAPTER 14, COMING OUT ON SATURDAY, APRIL 2nd!!!

Tall Cactus

Note: You might be wondering why most of the chapter was 24 Carrot and only a little bit was Astro-Knights, and upset that Binary Bard got no lines in this chapter. That’s because most of the actual plot line in Astro-Knights Island was about Mordred’s backstory and stuff, but I already explained the Totem Curse version in Chapter 5 and Chapter 6. Also, TBH, I couldn’t really come up with a twist for it, but I did for 24 Carrot, so that’s that. Plus, this chapter was getting kind of long anyway.

Monkeys Have Invaded the Poptropica App!

Hey guys! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday! Monday is the best day of the week! Just kidding.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that there has been an update for the app. You can now play Monkey Wrench Island on the go! That was only a month late. Whatever.

Now we just have to wait for the day when Mocktropica, Poptropolis Games, Virus Hunter, and Monster Carnival are added to the app. They seem to be only adding the SUIs. For now.

Hop-py Easter!

(Note: This is the first ever guest post on this blog! Give a big round of applause to Dr. Hare!)

Hey minions Poptropicans, it’s your friend Dr. Hare here! Ever since I started stalking reading this blog, I’ve always wanted to be an author. Well, I’m not one yet, since I don’t have a WordPress account, but Tall Cactus is letting my write this guest post ’cause she’s gonna be too busy today. THIS IS BETTER THAN CARROTS I TELL YOU. BETTER THAN RULING THE WORLD. Oh, yeah, I forgot that I’m good now! 😛

Anyway, I want to wish you a merry Easter and a happy Spring Break…oops wrong song. Today I will be discussing the Easter Bunny. First of all, the “Easter Bunny” doesn’t even like carrots. HOW COULD HE BE SO MEAN!!!! Also, he kinda creeps me out. But then again, you all think I’M creepy, but that’s just since I used to be the worst villain in all of Poptropica! Actually, I don’t really want to think about my past right now…it’s just too much…

So I think that I would make a better Easter Bunny! ‘Cause I’m cool. Bye!

Recap: TC’s 1 Year Poptropica Anniversary Party!

(Pic made by Small Fire)

Earlier tonight, I hosted a celebration for my 1 Year Anniversary of discovering Poptropica! It was a blast. Way more people showed up than I expected, including two PHB authors, Cobalt and Ultimate iPad Expert! Everyone had fun hanging out on the chat, and even though it got a little quiet towards the end, it was still awesome.

There were two different multiverses, filled with sneezing powder, whoopee cushions, dancing cake costumes, and crazy items from the olden days of Poptropica. We had fun playing games with each other and there was even a dance competition at one point.

For those who couldn’t make it, don’t worry! There will be more parties in the future.

When I first started Poptropica one year ago, I had no idea how much I would eventually love it. And to everyone reading this, I just want to say thank you. The community is the main reason of me still being here. You guys are absolutely amazing!

Here’s to one year of Poptropica, and for many more years to come!

The Totem Curse- Chapter 12: A Girl Named Poppy

Once upon a time, on June 15, 1994, Poppy Piper Andrews was born, in Early Poptropica. She lived in one of the apartments at Poptropica Towers, with her parents, Rose and Florian (not the one from Pelican Rock), and her older sister, Daisy.

For most of her childhood, Poppy was like every other kid and had many friends. She and her friends, and sometimes even Daisy, would role-play going on epic adventures with pirates and spies and super villains. So it was no surprise that Poppy dreamed of becoming an explorer when she grew up. She was always ready for adventure. She even had a huge map of all the islands in Poptropica hanging on a wall in her room.

But everything changed when she started middle school. Her friends suddenly stopped caring about her adventure games, and starting hanging out with the popular girls. Poppy tried to make new friends, but everyone already had them and no one noticed her or even cared. Yet her imagination and intelligence allowed for her to survive 6th, and then 7th grade. Soon it was her 13th birthday.

Theory Thursdays: Alternate Timelines?!?

Guess what day it is? Thursday! Which means it’s time for…

theorythursdays

 

This week’s theory comes from a question asked by Dangerous Eye on Friday’s post:

Screenshot 2016-03-24 at 11.59.10 AM

Great question, Dangerous Eye! I actually have two theories about this.

Theory #1- The Boring One Which Is Probably True:

Because it’s a game. All games were you can make your own character are like that.

Theory #2- The Interesting One That Probably Isn’t True:

Here’s the fun one. Maybe every Poptropican is a different possible timeline. So, let’s say that every time a new Poptropican is made, it goes back in time, and an alternate timeline/universe begins. Every possible timeline is almost exactly the same except for one thing- your Poptropican. Each Poptropican can do islands in a slightly different order and stuff like that, but the main plot is the same. But what about common rooms and things like that? Well, that’s not canon, of course. Or common rooms and multiverses are gateways between the timelines/universes. That’s why it’s called a multiverse. The doors/holes you enter and exit through are portals or time machines. Or something like that. I really don’t know.

Well, that’s all for this week. I’ll see you next Thursday for another awesome theory!

The Totem Curse- Chapter 11: Experiment Gone Wrong

Continued From Chapter 10

Harvey was now officially alone. No friends, no one he could trust. Sure, there was his roommate, Michael Silva, but he was a jerk. The only company he had was Fuzzy Bunny, which he grew to love even though Fuzzy was kind of mean sometimes. But, most of the time, Harvey was somewhat depressed.

To keep his hopes up, he tried to only focus on his education. He studied, and studied, and 4 years later, in 2001, he graduated with his bachelor’s degree. He could have ended his college years there, but since learning and science were the only things keeping him happy, he kept studying for years. On June 15th, 2007, he would get his doctorate degree. Yet, something terrible happened just three days before that.
