fanseries by TwinklingCupcake featuring an after-school activities thematic. It can read on Fanfiction.net here
. As of this writing, the series is officially complete.
After the Dream Charm
, a magical crystal that nurtures everyone's hopes and dreams, is destroyed during an invasion and escape their home, Dream Peaks
, to Earth, two snakes named Kaana and Hisa take it upon themselves to send five emails containing a special program that, when the message is opened, will turn the pure-hearted recipient into a Pretty Cure. Soon, they assemble four girls into a team.
- Fumie Motou (Cure Ink): Main character and self-proclaimed leader of the group, aged 14. Fumie is a member of the art club, very cheerful, and...is the only Cure to not have a definitive dream.
- Kurako Kaneyama (Cure Twirl): The Lancer, aged 14. Comes from a rich family, though she lacks any of the snobbery that her classmates expected her to have—she does, however, like to charge people money for nearly everything.
- Aoi Wada (Cure Spice): Team Mom, 15 years old. A chef-in-training who adores spicy food. Soft-spoken and sweet, she is the self-proclaimed chef for Pretty Cure and their friends.
- Kotone Suzuki (Cure Beat): The Big Girl, 14 years old. Loves rock music and wants to be a rock-star in the US someday. Her floor has a problem with the volume of her practicing.
- Uta Suzuki/(Cure Aria): The Fifth Ranger, and Kotone's twin sister. A girly-girl who loves to sing and help others.
- Hisa and Kaana: Mascots and The Mentors. Kaana and Hisa are snake-sisters who are the princess's royal bodyguards, and took her with them when they fled to Earth. Kaana, the younger, is more juvenile and cheerful, while her big sister, Hisa, is much more serious.
And then, there's Mora.
A group of five people who want the Dream Charm for themselves and aim to steal the dreams of everyone in the universe, in Dream Peaks and on earth.They consist of:
- Nocturna: The Big Bad of the series, a surprisingly-young girl who was left horribly weakened by the attack on Dream Peaks, and now relies on her followers to do the dirty work for her until she is fully healed. Is implied to be in a relationship with Gachan.
- Gachan: The Dragon / Battle Butler. Wears a mask to hide his heterochromia and large birthmark that covers half his face. The gentleman of the group, he only does evil deeds because it's what Nocturna wishes, not because of any ill will he himself has.
- Chuusha: The Medic, a woman who claims to not feel pain herself, but loves inflicting it on others—including her own team-mates. Uses needles to fight, and loses her temper far too easily.
- Kemuri: The Dark Chick, an over-dramatic girl who treats battles as stage-performances and rates herself (and her opponents) at the very end. Tends to use colored smoke-bombs.
- Fureyaa: The Minion with an F in Evil, a 14-year-old boy who relies on bright lights to cover him in battle, and enjoys eating lunch with Pretty Cure and hanging out with them. He adopts a civilian disguise later and uses it to date Uta.
This fanfic contains examples of:
- All Part of the Show: In episode 15, Kemuri falls onto the stage during a school play and creates a Bakuko that Pretty Cure have to fight off. Everyone in the audience just assumes it's part of the play and comment that the effects are amazing.
- Alternate Universe
- Ambiguous Gender: Kotone and Uta's parent, Hibiki.
- Arbitrary Scepticism: In episode 11, Kurako doesn't believe youkai or ghosts can exist. This despite herself being a transforming heroine who fights giant monsters and is mentored by talking snakes.
- Arson Murder And Jay Walking: Cure Twirl in episode 2
"You dare to not only harm a student, to allow another to vandalize this precious school, but you also interrupt my practice time?!"
- Ascended Fanon: Fumie's mention of initially planning to attend Etoile Academy in episode 19 led to the author of Starshine Pretty Cure to notice the physical similarities between Fumie and Ibuki, and headcanoned them as cousins. After the author agreed with this, the two of them decided to just make it canon.
- Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Ayumu in the finale.
- Beach Episode: Episode 17.
- Berserk Button: For Aoi, it's foul-tasting food. For Kemuri, it's anyone touching/knocking off her monocle.
- Bittersweet Ending: Mora is defeated for good, the Dream Charm is restored as is Himemiya, and both worlds are safe. Chuusha and Kemuri have been revived and live better, happier lives, and Mari is now a Magical Girl Warrior too. However, Gachan and Ayumunote are both dead, though Fumie's sure they'll be revived eventually.
- Boarding School: Atama Academy
- By the Power of Grayskull!: "Pretty Cure, show my future!"
- Catch Phrase: Kaana's "I love ___!"; Aoi's "And that's terrible!"; and Mari's "Bestest friends, 'k?"
- Cerebus Retcon: In Fumie's first attempt at battling, she starts bleeding and flips out. When Aoi transforms, she keeps her glasses. Both of these go against canon (Pretty Cure being Made of Iron and Meganekko losing the glasses when they transform), which Hisa calls attention to. Both are played for laughs until we find out that Mora has dramatically weakened the power of Pretty Cure, and so the girls can't be Made of Iron or get their sight fixed until Mora is destroyed.
