*record scratch*


😮 😮 😮

The set release date for the game is November 6th, 2012! *squee!!!*

This is bringing Poptropica to a whole new level. You see, I think Club Penguin used to be the only kid’s online virtual world with a DS game companion (lemme know if there are any others…) Not anymore! Poptropica’s getting some publicity. I mean, it already has with its toys and game cards and kids meals laying around, but still!

Here’s what the promotional stuff says:

Poptropica Adventures

blink blink* *looks closer at characters* Umm…


Erm.. Those are different looking Poptropicans… but it’s still a video game!!

It’s kinda obvious what two of the three Islands will be from these pics: Mythology and Astro-Knights. But it’s not so obvious what the third will be. The cover isn’t much help. Although the cover has Zeus, the fire planet knight, and the Binary Bard *glares*… both Sir Rebral and that popular spy guy are on it as well. Is it Super Power or Spy??????

Non-members, enjoy Lunar Colony! Meanwhile, nonmembers and members alike have to wait to get information on what’s coming up next, whether it’s the horrid nightmare of 4 (announced) returning villains in 30th island Super Villain Island, the sweet, pure imagination of a plausible Wonka quest, or the interactive, portable experience of Poptropica Adventures. My oh my, a lot is happening!

Happy Birthday, to the Bravest Tomato in Poptropica!

*looks at calendar*

Hmm… Friday, June 8. The day after I get out of school. The day I go see The Phantom of the Opera live at the Venetian. Twenty days before my birthday… this means…


A special announcement on Super Thunder’s Blog! One of our administrators, the one that’s the pretty one in the header, is turning fourteen (14) years old! As of June 8, 2012, she is officially a fourteen year old! Congratulations, Brave Tomato!

Now, I could say a lot of things, but… I’ll make it sweet and to the point.

Dear Brave Tomato,

You are the bestest friend a girl could ever hope for. You are amazing, beautiful, courageous, d… *thinks* da… de… di… do… uh, dynamic, excellent, fantastic, generous, helpful, intriguing, j… j… jelly (I don’t have an imagination), kind, loving, magnificent, n… nostalgic (I miss you if I can’t talk to you on Xat), open minded, perfect, q… there’s no way I can think of anything that starts with a “Q”, so we’ll skip this one, rad, super, terrific, unique, very amazing, willing, x… x-rayous (yes, I am tired, and yes, my brain is halfway shut down), young, and zealous! In a nutshell, Brave Tomato, you are fantastic, and don’t ever change from your amazing ways! You’re the best writer I know, and the sweetest person, with the biggest heart, and best star-on-cheek person ever!

I’ll be the president of your fan club, by the way. I expect a cool shirt that says “#1 Brave Tomato Fan!”

So, Brave Tomato, I hope you have a fantastic day, get a lot of presents, a lot of Evanescence stuff, and maybe a writing agent.

Yours truly, Super Thunder

Readers of Super Thunder’s Blog: Leave a message for Brave Tomato in the comments! Wish her a fantastic birthday, because she’s a marvelous person that deserves it!

The Everred Plot: Part 1- No Turning Back

*dramatic pause*

Brave Tomato: This is it. This is what you’ve been waiting for: the first of three parts of the Curious Bee trilogy, The Everred Plot! Now, this is going to be different this time. Since the most popular vote was the story style, I’ll only do this intro script style. Once the curtains open, this story will be story style. Well, what are we waiting for??

*curtains open*

Curious Bee was startled by the sun beating down on her face. She knew from the feeling that it was time to wake up. Time to possibly save the world. She might die today, who knows, yet she got up anyways.

Looking around, she noticed that people were getting up from the temporary sun. First, Quiet Snake, then Blue Skull, then Sasha, and finally Bendy Tornado.

“Morning guys!” Mirabel Powers (Mira, for short) called out to them, waving an arm, “Glad to see you’re willing to risk your lives today!”

Quiet Snake groaned, “Thank you soo much for reminding us.”

The sun that peeked on the CB group was only temporary, and it vanished into the gathering clouds. The area was darker again.

Blue Skull, always trying to keep a light mind, noticed, “Didn’t you realize that we just slept near REd headquarters?!”

“We pretty much get the idea by now, Eric” Sasha murmured, getting herself up.

Now that everybody’s awake, the CB group walked over to the cave opening. It felt more repulsive than the cave that held the Sword of Hope.

“Krimson Everred’s hideout is down these tunnels,” Mira said, staring at her once hideaway.

The thought of hearing her name made Curious Bee shudder. Although CB had the Sword of Hope in her grasp, she has to still beware the villain’s wrath, according to the Prophecy of Color. And Mira said that Krimson possesses the power of the fire, which makes sense with her burning down Curious Bee’s house. Mira was able to escape Krimson, since she’s actually a spirit as well as the members of REd, and Sasha.

Curious Bee was a curious young girl of now 14 years old. She started off as a young adventurer, who was rebellious about the old rule that she couldn’t leave her home of Early Poptropica. Eventually, she evolved into a leader when she met Bendy, Blue, Quiet, and Nice Sword. She was able to able to work out the conflict between her and Sasha, but CB knew that she couldn’t change Krimson like she did with Sasha.

Sasha, a ghost girl of forever 13, thought it was her fault that the CB group is in this mess. There was a time, actually just months ago, she hated the CB group. She had thought that CB had forgotten her. She had once called her a “selfish mortal”. After CB was able to show proof that Sasha had thought wrong, Sasha apologized and joined the group to make up for it. Although she is dead, she tends to act like she’s still alive.

Bendy Tornado was a boy of 14, who used to actually be part of a graffiti-making gang. However, his poor decision to do left him a consequence of a troubling past: involving the disappearance of three of his fellow members, making a decision that actually saved him from the same fate, and being withheld in the Academy. Now known with a changed heart and as the boyfriend of Curious Bee, Bendy’s got better things going for him.

Quiet Snake was a fashionable, yet cowardly 12-year-old girl from the Academy who tends to complain a lot. She tried to give Curious Bee a little makeover, but CB didn’t really approve of it, since it was the wrong time to have a makeover. It seems like sometimes, she cares about other’s outfits so much that she doesn’t really pay attention to what she is wearing.

Blue Skull was the light-minded one in the CB group. He’s a 13-year-old boy who’s a little silly when he can be, but he can be serious when he needs to be. The only reason he was taken to the academy was because he attempted to take a clown costume from the Costume Store, just to try and entertain his stubborn sister. He was also the first to see Cameron and Marcus Kensie, two members of REd, as who they really are. Although he’s a funnyman, he can be a huge help to the CB group at times.

“Hello?” Mira asked the group, looking at them, “Staring at the cave isn’t going to save the world.”

“Ready?” Curious Bee asked, looking at her fellow members.

The group responded with hesitant nods and a soft “Yes.”

“Wait!” Mira shouted, “Krimson probably put traps in it!” Mira took a rock and threw it into the cave. However, nothing happened.

“Where’s the traps??” Blue Skull asked, confused.

Mira stood there for a second, stunned. Then, she said, “She’s expecting us.”

The CB group stared at the cave, shocked. Curious Bee stared at the cave, “Expecting us?”

“Yes,” Mira responded, “she knows you’re coming. And that I’m with you. And Sasha. But about the rest of you… I have no idea.”

Bendy Tornado looked at Mira, then at Curious Bee, “That explains why she nor the rest of REd bothered us while we were sleeping.”

Silence filled the air for a second. Then, Curious Bee stepped towards the cave, “I’m going in. Are you coming?”

Curious Bee ran into the cave, and the others followed. The Sword of Hope was firmly in her grasp and she continued running.

Curious Bee knew for a fact that there was no turning back. The tunnel seemed endless. Darkness blanketed the cave even more as they ran deeper. The rocky terrain seemed like it was going to close in on the group at any second. Nothing was going to stop them. Nothing.

Quiet Snake stumbled a little bit on the rocky grounds, “Are we there yet?”

“Just a little while longer!” Mira shouted, unaffected by the familiar setting, “Krimson chose this cave so that normal travelers who don’t know where they’re going would give up. Also, usually, she enables traps that would make the idea of going back easier. But… they’re disabled for some reason.”

The CB group continued running. Curious Bee didn’t know how to feel. It was a mixture of fear, determination, bravery, perseverance, and, most importantly, hope. The Sword seemed to be giving that message.

Then there was a light. It was a reddish light, and Mira stopped short.

The others, not knowing what to do, stopped too.

“See that light?” Mira showed, pointing in the direction, “Ladies and gentlemen, that is REd headquarters.”

It didn’t take that long to figure out. The Sword was gripped tighter in Curious Bee’s hand. Then, she blinked for a second and put the sword in its case. CB’s pretty unsure right now on what to do.

“By the way, Miranda, do you even know how to use a sword?” Sasha asked.

“I guess. I once did a sword-wielding simulation, and then there’s the fact that I saw it on TV too, so I guess that counts,” Curious Bee responded, nervously.

The group stared at her blankly. Blue Skull replied, “You better be paying close attention to those TV shows. And you better had done alright during that simulation.”

“Yeah…” Curious Bee sighed, “that would’ve been better to know before we entered the cave.”

“Well it’s too late now!” Quiet Snake groaned, looking at the ground, “There’s no turning back.”

Out of nowhere, Curious Bee dashed towards the red light.

“Hey!” Mira shouted, “Wait for us!”

Curious Bee continued running. She kept thinking. She has no experience. She never actually fought a villain before. But she needs to do this, for Nice Sword, who was taken captive by REd. She felt like she lost control of her feet, which continued running towards the red light.

No turning back now.

The rest of the group ran behind her, a couple of feet away. The red light continued increasing in size.

Before she knew it, CB was right in front of the source of the light. Quickly, she hid behind a large floor stalagmite. The rest of the CB group came over, and CB called them over to hide.

The group stayed quiet as they hid.

In the room at the moment, there was Cameron, Marcus, Indigo, and Alamar. They watched the security camera footage.

“How in Poptropica do they know the way?” Marcus asked, looking at the footage.

“I have no idea, brother,” Cameron responded, “maybe it has something to do with the red-head ponytail girl.”

“It has everything to do with the ‘red-head ponytail girl’,” Alamar sighed, looking at the Kensies, “she’s Selena Castheart.”

“That girl who left?” Cameron asked, “She’s here?”

“Yeah,” Indigo responded, “she’s the sole traitor of REd. She’s the mission of Alamar and I. We haven’t seen her until now.”

Marcus was tired of hearing the Selena Castheart story a million times. It warns the members of REd to never be hesitant. Although she takes on the new name of Mirabel Powers, Mira for short, they still call her Selena.

Violet then entered the room, and looked at the footage. “They’re here,” she said.

Curious Bee flinched. She recognized Violet, Cameron, and Marcus, but not the other two voices. She assumed the new girl voice to be Indigo and the new boy voice to be Alamar. And when Violet mentioned that they were here, she cringed a little.

Then she heard a very familiar voice.

“Curious Bee!!!”

Curious Bee tried not to come out of hiding.

“It’s Nice Sword!” Quiet Snake whispered lowly.

All of a sudden, vines appeared from cracks on the ground and held down the CB group. All except for Mira, Sasha, and Curious Bee: the ones that mattered to REd.

Cameron came around from the corner of the stalagmite and leeredn at the group, “Just what makes you think you can hide from REd that easily?”

“Good going, sis,” Marcus said to Cameron, for once, not sarcastically.

“Again with the vines?? That’s getting a little cliché by now,” Blue Skull shouted.

Curious Bee stood her ground and took out the Sword. As soon as Cameron saw the weapon, she used a vine to pull CB’s hand, thrusting her to the ground. The Sword skidded towards the stalagmite.

“Ah, so you’ve got a sword, now?” Cameron taunted.

“Look who’s acting brave,” Marcus remarked.

Out of nowhere, someone shouted “Enough with this nonsense!”

Curious Bee cringed in her mind. That voice. It could only be her. Dark. Twisted. Troubled.

Sasha, remembering she had the power of the sharp, cut off the vines on everyone.

It was no one other than Krimson who appeared in front of the group. Curious Bee grabbed the Sword.

“The Sword of Hope may be in your grasp…” Krimson sinisterly remarked, “but the ‘hero’ must beware my wrath…”

With that, she reached out a hand at Sasha. Sasha was stopped, unable to move. “Miranda!” she shouted out.

“Sasha!” Curious Bee responded, sword tightly in grasp. The Sword is able to harm ghosts, it also give the ability to be able to attack ghosts as if they were solid. With that, Curious Bee gripped her sword and used her arm to push Krimson to prevent her from controlling Sasha.

“Ooooo, a fighter girl now, aren’t you?” Krimson said, getting up.

“Thanks to you,” Curious Bee remarked, twirling her sword.

Krimson was stunned by Curious Bee’s sudden bravery. Yet, she still needed to satisfy her insanity. She used telekinesis to keep Sasha still and resumed putting out her palm.

“Come with me,” Krimson muttered, not letting in, “and you’ll be free.”

“No!” Curious Bee shouted. She  got up and attempted to do the same move, but she got pulled by a vine, towards the ground again. This time, the sword was still in CB’s grip and she cut off the vine.

But it was too late.

“MIRANDA!” Sasha shouted, as she noticed herself being transformed.

Bendy, Blue, Quiet, and Mira tried to pull Sasha out, but it was no use.

“SASHA!” Curious Bee responded, going to her. Then, she looked at Krimson, who  had a sinister smirk on her face. CB gritted her teeth. She felt the desire to actually use her sword. It felt like it was gleaming in her hands.

“Welcome to REd, Sasha,” Krimson muttered softly, sinisterly.

“No!” Curious Bee shouted. Sasha couldn’t say anything. Her eyes were closed, and she looked like a REd member. She was being controlled by Krimson. She pulled an arm and Sasha was floating towards her, unaware.

Curious Bee blanked out. She thought she had failed. She didn’t react quick enough.

“It’s not too late!” Mira shouted at CB, keeping determined eyes.

“Go, Curious Miranda Bee!” Blue Skull responded.

“You need to stop her!” Quiet Snake shouted bravely.

“Do it. I know you can,” Bendy Tornado said, looking into CB’s eyes.

Curious Bee glimpsed at Nice Sword, in the cage. She gave a determined look and nodded, “Kick that girl’s butt.”

She glared at Krimson. Sasha was forced to follow her. Sasha had lost control of her own spirit.

Gripping her sword with all might, she whispered, “You’re looking at a completely different girl now, Krimson Everred.”


The Creators Considered WHAT?!?!?!


One giant leap for map-kind

For some time now, Poptropica has had a problem. A good problem, but a problem nonetheless. The problem: too many Islands! Vampire’s Curse Island will be our 25th Island, if you can believe it. And our map was starting to look really cluttered.

First, we thought we would just have to erase some Islands. Flush ’em right down the drain. But as our fingers were hovering over the “delete” button, somebody had an idea: why not make a new map? We all agreed that was a much better solution.

Now, when you log onto Poptropica for the first time, or return to your blimp from Main Street of any Island, you’ll see this new and improved map screen!

It has a few advantages over the old one. The Island icons no longer move, so it’s easier to read their names. The newest Islands are at the very beginning, so you’ll won’t have far to look for the latest and greatest adventure. And we’ve split up the map into different pages, which makes it easier for you to sort through them.

Oh, and most important of all: the birds chase your blimp.

We hope you enjoy the new map, and that it helps makes your visit to Poptropica even more fun than before.

Happy Leap Day! There won’t be another one for 4 years.


Creators… why would you even THINK to delete an already released island?! How do you think we Poptropica fans would feel about that??

Whoever suggested the new map instead…


You’ve saved a lot of Poptropica fans.

And sure, birds are stalking the blimp, thats both awesome and creepy. Are there any birds that follow any hot air balloons? No.

BT out!

Edit by Super Thunder: Creators, you may not delete any islands! I was, like, born in Super Power Island, but I moved to Early Poptropica after just a few hours. I have friends who were born in Shark Tooth, and Time Tangled. You want to erase our homes?!

Curious Bee Xtra: Sasha’s Story: Part 2 of 2

“I need to find someone.” Sasha said firmly, “and teach her a lesson. One day. She can’t forget me! She’s my only living friend. She must pay, that selfish mortal.”


“What?” Cameron asked.

“Who?” Marcus asked.

“We can help, you know,” Cameron said.

“No, I don’t need your help for my problems,” Sasha scoffed, looking at the ocean.

“Whatever is your problem, is our problem too,” Marcus said, considerably.

“No I don’t need your help!” Sasha yelled once again.

Marcus looked at Sasha with a look of disgust. Then, Cameron whispered to Marcus, “She’s undergoing a lot of stress right now. She just died and she found out that her friend could have betrayed her.”

Getting up, Marcus looked at Sasha. Her red hair was flowing in the brisk winds, staring at the ocean. The ocean could be a soothing place, but for Sasha, it was a miserable, horrible nightmare of a place. She thought of everything, the horrible sound of wood burning and breaking, under the mercy of guns and cannons. Then there was the water. It doused the flames, but it also entrapped the chamber like a blanket. Being underwater was even worse than being surrounded by flames. The water was ice cold, and there was no way you could live another second if there isn’t another airpocket in the area. And the saddest part is, Poptropica is made up of islands, so there are more oceans that haunt the memories.

Sasha turned around and looked at Cameron and Marcus. She said, “Look, as much as I thank you for returning me to land, I have to do something. I need to go…” she paused, “wait, what year is it?”

“It’s September 2011.” Marcus said.

What??” Sasha asked, stunned, “but it was July 2010 when I died!”

“You’ve been asleep from your death for over a year. A ghost could wake at any time. I died in June 2008 and woke up January 2009.” Cameron said.

All this time had passed, yet Sasha was unaware. She looked at Cameron and Marcus remorsefully and disappeared, heading towards Early Poptropica. Marcus watched as she disappeared. Then, Cameron came up from behind him, blond hair cascading into a jet black, and said,

“Don’t worry, my brother. We’ll get her to join us soon. As soon as she could get rid of the one thing plaguing her life: Miranda Bee.”


I’m at war with the world cause I

Ain’t never gonna sell my soul

I’ve already made up my mind

No matter what I can’t be bought or sold

~ “Awake and Alive” by Skillet

Sasha looked around. The familiar sight of Early Poptropica haunted her. Looking around, she noticed the familiar street of the suburbian district.

Baystreet Way.

She looked around, as if she had landed there for the first time. The streets were empty. Sasha knew what she had to do. She walked down the street and looked at the House. Miranda’s house. She knew it. She peeked through the window, where no one was there. Not even Jennifer, Miranda’s mom. She went through the walls and there was still no one there. There was a note on the counter:

Gone to the PPA to rescue our daughter.

Sasha eyed the note and said, “The PPA. The Poptropica Problems Academy.”

Sasha flew and exited Early Poptropica. She located the remote island and flew down to there.
The place is sure dark. There was grey everywhere, even the grass was a dull grey. Sasha became invisible and looked around. Then she saw a woman and a man. The man seemed to be the principal of the academy and the woman was Jennifer. She said,

“I’ve come to remove Curious Miranda Bee from this school.”

“I cannot allow it, and she even escaped along with her roommates months ago.” the principal stated firmly.

“Good for her! I never wanted her to go here!” Jennifer shouted, walking away.

Sasha watched in dismay and disbelief. Miranda had ran away? Great she thought, This’ll make the job harder. Then she had an idea, “Maybe,” she said, “I can wait in Early Poptropica until she arrives.”

Sasha exited the remote island and flew back to Early Poptropica. She landed on the ground, near Goodstein Street, and disappeared.


A month had passed, yet Sasha still waited. Still invisible. Her strength was fading, she knew she can’t stay invisible forever.

Then Halloween came.

Sasha recognized the cheerful sounds of Halloween, whether it could be cheers or fears of young ones. Then she saw her.

Of course, she had her glasses on. Her hair was in a bun, and there were detachable wings attached to her. There were four other kids walking and talking with her. Two boys and two girls. One of the boys had curly blond hair, fair skin, and seems to be dressed like a rock star. The other one had brown-black sleek hair that was hidden by an apparent cowboy hat. One of the girls had light brown short hair that had a fake halo over her head, an obvious angel costume. The other wore grey streaks in her black hair and wore a purple gown.

Eventually, she was able to identify them as the roommates who escaped with Miranda. Then she watched Miranda decided to sit down for a little bit and the others said that they would come back for her.

As soon as the roommates walked a safe distance away, Sasha stole a bat from a boy who set it on a bench. Looking over where Miranda was sleeping, she carried the bat…

… knocked Miranda out and took her to the nearby graveyard.


Well, thank you for reading this. There will be more CB Xtra stories with other characters eventually in the weeks to come.
BT out!


*practically all of the island is empty right now. On Ghost Story Island, Daphne sits there, in front of her ghost machine, and sighs*

Daphne: Why can’t I be included in the photo shoot?

*In a large studio*

Photographer: Alright, places, places everybody!

Binary Bard: Remind us again why we have to do this!

Photographer: Everyone is here! Well, almost everyone. Daphne just was too recent to be included in this. And E. Vile… He just only refused to come in person, and his hologram would mess up the picture.

Random Girl 1: Hey, you’re on my foot!

Random Girl 2: Sorry!

Rock Star 2 Girl: I’m getting cramped in here!

Photographer: All right, villains! Give me your best evil looks! *they did, but before they were told anyways. Director D doesn’t.) Director D! You know you’re a villain too!

Director D.: No I’m not! I’m the director of the spy headquarters.

Photographer: And the director of B.A.D too, so just do it!

Director D: Alright fine!

Random Poptropican: Wait, what?

Photographer: Balloon Boy, you’re doing great! Just keep it up! Don’t loosen your rope that’s keeping you on the ground!

Balloon Boy: For the last time, my name’s Green Flyer!

Photographer: Okay… One… Two… Three! *click* Great job everybody!

*most of the characters get out as fast as they can, before Binary Bard leaves, he loosens Balloon Boy’s rope, given that he was posed close to him and Balloon Boy flies again.*

Balloon Boy: Not again!

Binary Bard: See you in the skies! *teleports out of there*

Photographer: *looks at the incident* Hmm. Shouldn’t have done this in an open roof studio. Not to mention putting a villain next to Balloon Boy anyways. *notices that everyone is gone* Doesn’t anyone want to see the photo? Oh well. I bet those guys has something better to do anyways. *looks at photo* This actually didn’t turn out that bad.
