One of many OC fics for the ''PrettyCure'' franchise that have sprung up around Livejournal, this one is written by xdisc and features a "season" theme.

The MagicalLand that this particular group needs to save is the Realm of Sky, which protects the weather of all worlds (but you [[UnfortunateImplications probably shouldn't blame natural disasters on them]]). They kept the balance with the Season Keys, four immortal pieces of a tree. Yes, you read that right: two leaves and two twigs. In comes the evil group Neomonde, attempting to steal them. Rather than let that happen, ruler Princess Sora sent the Keys to Earth just before she was captured. In come three junior high school students, who become Cures with three of the Season Keys. (Later on, they're joined by a fourth member.) Time for some princess-saving, ladies.

!!The members of Pretty Cure are:

* Kazeno Aki ('''[[color:hotpink:Cure Autumn]]'''): The leader of the team, a typically ditzy mahou-shoujo leader with a love of cute guys and sweets. [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Can become very powerful under duress]]. Uses the power of [[BlowYouAway wind]].
* Toumizu Rei ('''[[color:skyblue:Cure Winter]]'''): Aki's childhood friend, an outgoing girl who says what's on her mind. Dreams of reciting poetry on stage, but her stage fright might hamper that. Uses the power of [[AnIcePerson ice]].
* Natsuno Atsui ('''[[color:crimson:Cure Summer]]'''): An athletic newcomer to the trio who enjoys graphic design and [[HotForTeacher nurses a crush on their homeroom teacher]]. Uses the power of [[PlayingWithFire heat]].
* Tsuitei Sakura ('''[[color:green:Cure Spring]]'''): The [[SixthRanger Fourth Ranger]]. Started out as an apathetic, {{Alpha Bitch}}-esque rival, but she eventually befriended the Cures and awakened as one during Episode 22. Uses the power of [[GreenThumb pla]][[PetalPower nts]].
* '''[[color:palegoldenrod:Sunny]]''' and '''[[color:lightpink:Berry]]''': The [[MentorMascot Mentor Mascots]] and [[TeamPet Team Pets]].
* '''[[color:springgreen:Easel]]''': The [[SixthRanger Third Ranger]] to the mascots. He and Sunny don't like each other much.

!!The members of Neomonde are:

* '''The Director''': The BigBad. [[EyesAlwaysShut His eyes are always closed]]. [[RedEyesTakeWarning Usually]].
* '''[[color:slategray:Moszaryz]]''': The Director's occasionally-unreliable [[TheDragon Number Two]]. Has powers over [[ExtraOreDinary metal]].
* '''Osmio and Onirk''': Two unintelligent, octopus-like minions, used to guard the Princess' cage.
* '''[[color:forestgreen:Belldandy]]''': Alias Midorikawa Kane. A [[DarkMagicalGirl cold girl]] who infiltrates the Cures' ranks but begins to question her job after experiencing different emotions. Wields [[FlechetteStorm needles]] and uses the power of plants. [[spoiler:Later becomes a [[SixthRanger Fifth Ranger]] to the Cures by the name of '''Lady Rainbow'''.]]
* '''[[color:lightsteelblue: Furyze ]]''': A man who initially cares nothing about Neomonde's goal, simply enjoying to fight. Later on, he changes his mind and grows to embrace his job. Wields a [[WhipItGood whip]] and uses the power of ice.
* '''[[color:orangered: Kajiaki]]''': Alias Kanjitou Kaoru. She's said to be the most evil of the servants. Wields [[RingsOfDeath rings]] and uses the power of fire.
* '''[[color:darkviolet: Clawind]]''': A mature, attractive man who enjoys disguising himself as famous people. Wields a [[PaperFanOfDoom fan]] and uses the power of wind.
* '''Whisdame''': An evil seer with the ability to predict the future, although it's unknown how precise this is. She's most notable for introducing the more powerful [[MonsterOfTheWeek Kichigaino]].

Written in script format with short chapters, it's notable in that all of its characters performed well in the [=SaiFancharacter=] tournament held by the fanbase, with Atsui taking the crown at the end [[DarkHorseVictory despite being up against]] Cure Rosa, the lead of ''Fanfic/PrettyCurePerfumePreppy''.

!!'''This fanfic contains examples of:'''
* ActingForTwo: In one episode of season 2, the girls play both the Section 2 girls from ''GunslingerGirl'' and their respective fratellos.
* AlphaBitch: Sakura was initially this, although mostly attitude-wise. She didn't have many friends until the Cures came along.
* AlternateContinuity
** ElsewhereFic
** OriginalCharacter
* AmbiguouslyGay: Clawind. The author of ''FanFic/PrettyCureHeavyMetal'' had good reason to quote [[Film/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]] and say "Possible homosexual? Must investigate further."
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: "Precure, Full Awakening!"
* CherryBlossomGirl: Tsuitei Sakura
* {{Crossdresser}}: When Aki imagines herself and the other Cures (including [[spoiler:Kane]]) in a ''GunslingerGirl'' scenario in an early episode of season 2, one of the dual roles they play is the fratellos assigned to their respective characters.
* DemotedToExtra: Now that Hana has fulfilled her purpose as the red herring in the "who is Cure Spring?" question, the author seems to have no more use for her.[[spoiler:.. except as SecretKeeper (when she figures out four of her friends are Cures).]]
* DevelopmentHell: The series has gone on several hiatuses, mostly related to the author's stint in college. And then the author's dad accidentally wiped out all the episodes that had been written but not published. Maybe the author needs to save all the episodes on a flash drive or floppy disk?
* ElementalPowers: Like ''FanFic/ShiningPrettyCure'', both sides use the four main elements in some form.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Osmio and Onirk.
* EvilCounterpart: The four warriors of Neomonde.
* EvilTeacher: Kajiaki's civilian guise.
* {{Fangirl}}: Aki, naturally.
* FanNickname
** Atsui: Queen of [[OriginalCharacter OCs]] (after winning the [=SaiFancharacter=] tournament)
* [[SixthRanger Fourth Ranger]]: Cure Spring. She was speculated to be a reformed Belldandy or the girls' classmate and friend Haruno Hana, but turned out to be Sakura... the one the fanbase least expected.
** [[spoiler:Kane herself will eventually become a Fifth Ranger in her own right: Lady Rainbow.]]
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[HeartcatchPrettyCure Yuri Tsukikage]] is Belldandy.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:What Furyze's death would've been if Kane was Cure Spring.]]
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Akukage
* MoralEventHorizon: Furyze crosses this by [[spoiler:offing Belldandy]]. Kajiaki had a good chance of crossing it as well--and she would've, too, had Clawind not bumped her off first.
** Speaking of Clawind, he crosses it in episode 39 by ransacking the rooms of his predecessors.
* MusicalEpisode: Episode 44
* NamesTheSame: Belldandy is not a [[Manga/AhMyGoddess goddess]], nor is Rei a [[Franchise/SailorMoon miko]] or an [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Emotionless]] [[EmotionlessGirl Girl]]. Sakura isn't a [[{{Naruto}} ninja]] either, nor does she deal with [[Manga/CardcaptorSakura magical cards]]. She also not a [[FanFic/PrettyCureHeavyMetal metal vocalist]].
* NonHumanSidekick: Sunny and Berry
* PlotCoupons: The Season Keys
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: Belldandy [[HeelFaceTurn realizes she cares for the Cures after all]] and seemingly perishes after taking an attack mean for Aki; however, WordOfGod says she'll go the way of [[FutariWaPrettyCure Kiriya]] and come back as a normal human in the season finale, as well as gain a new identity as Lady Rainbow in season 2.]]
** [[spoiler: And then she'll "die" again in an early episode of season 2, though it's going to be for a TV episode shoot, and the crew knows better than to make a [[SnuffFilm snuff episode]].]]
* SirNotAppearingInThisTrailer: Whisdame, who first appeared in the last few episodes and wasn't named until episode 32
* ThemeNaming: Blatant. Twisted, though, in that all three candidates for Cure Spring had theme names (Kane's is less obvious, but her true name appears to come from the ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' character whose name was [[GratuitousEnglish supposed]] to be "Verdandi"), so the GenreSavvy couldn't guess from that.
* TheMovie: WordOfGod says there will be one. It's been postponed to the second season, having previously been axed due to the time it took to deliver episode 22.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Like all ''PrettyCure'' series, it figures prominently in the storyline. More specifically, it was necessary for the future Cure Spring's heart to be together with the others before she could access her powers.
* ThisCannotBe: Uttered by Furyze, [[spoiler: shortly before Cure Spring's attack destroys him.]]
* ThreeDMovie: Suggested for TheMovie.
* TransformationTrinket: The Cure Pick, a kind of choker
* TriangRelations: Type One, with Aki and Sakura playing BettyAndVeronica to Kozue's Archie; one of the main highlights of their rivalry. [[spoiler: In Episode 25, Aki realizes that her love for him doesn't run as deep as she thought, which seemingly clears the way for Sakura.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
** CurtainsMatchTheWindow: For some characters. Hey, it's a ''Precure'' tradition.
