About Brave Tomato

Hey guys, my name is Brave Tomato, and I’m an 20-year old girl from New Jersey. I'm a former PHB author, and I'm also a fan artist, fanfiction writer, occasional theorist, Youtuber, and an all around superfan nerd for Poptropica. My username is 1313cookie if you'd like to friend me.

A Message to Its A Poptropica Blog

Hey guys, it’s me, BT. 

Now, you might be looking at me funny right now, whether it would be because someone other than beastking is posting here or you’re looking at me because I didn’t fulfill my promise on a certain series. No matter what, I’m going to explain. 

I was 12 years old when I joined this lovely little blog. I was still wide-eyed about the bizarre idea and I got a little too eager and wrote up a series called Curious Bee. Looking back at it, I’m not 100% proud of it anymore. There was a lot of aspects that I wish I never should have included in the series, especially when it came to REd and Krimson herself. But at this point, the damage that was from it was already done. I’ve gone on to write much better stories than Curious Bee, and it ended up being left on the back burner. Curious Bee, however, will always have a place in my heart. It was the furthest I’ve ever gone with a lengthy series, and I’m just overwhelmed that it got so much support back then. If anybody here remembered Curious Miranda Bee and her friends, I thank you so much for being part of that chapter. 

Now, let’s talk about the blog itself. This place means a lot to me. My stage gimmick. The beginning of my blogging days that eventually landed me a position on the Poptropica Help Blog. And when I decided to stop by one day, I was happily stunned to see someone still trying their best to keep the blog alive. BeastKing, I’m really proud of your resilience. As of about a week ago, I have officially made him an administrator. Therefore, he now has the power to make the blog more as his own, equivalent to the power my old friend and blog founder Super Thunder, and I have had. BeastKing, keep doing what you’re doing, and invite friends along for the ride if you like. It really means a lot to me that you’re trying to still post new content for the blog, because this place means a lot. It’s one of the early Poptropica blogs, established late 2010, and keeping it alive just.. gives me a lot of hope. 

This might be the last time I post here on what was once Super Thunder’s Blog. In case it is, I’ll have to really thank you all for everything. My old friends even, if they’re somehow watching, thank you all as well. You introduced me to such a wonderful fandom and we all guided each other to greatness during the time we had.  I’ll definitely still be around, both on the Poptropica Help Blog and any of the social media accounts I have. But as for here, this chapter might be coming to a close. So thank you, everyone, and keep venturing onwards.

It’s no Myth to Us…

…that Mythology Island is the next SUI!

Excuse me while I go nostalgic.

Now that my flashback has subsided, my thoughts. First of all, I’m kinda excited. Excited as those too minions above this piece of text. Holy cow holy cow…

Okay, deep breaths, BT. In and out, BT. *breathes in and out, then finally calms down* You’re posting this on the internet, BT. Be professional. Professional…

…wow… Mythology Island really is the next SUI after Time Tangled. Holy cow… well… this is gonna be interesting.

I’m kinda surprised that Mythology Island’s the next SUI… because I was expecting another simple island to be the next SUI… Oh my gosh, I’m excited to hear this island’s soundtrack. I think it’s gonna be EPIC! (Pun intended).

Well, anyways, Mythology Island was the first island I as a Poptropican ever witnessed open to members and then to the public… and now seeing it updated, it makes me both excited.. and a little sad, for I have to say goodbye to the soundless island that helped shape who I am today, but at the same time say hello to a new beginning. That’s pretty much how I feel about the SUIs… well… I guess I’ll play Mythology Island a few more times soundless before the update comes out.

BT out!
