Fan Fic / Pretty Cure Bukatsudo Energetic

Pretty Cure Bukatsudo Energetic is a Pretty Cure fanseries by TwinklingCupcake featuring an after-school activities thematic. It can be read on here. 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.

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.
  • 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?!"
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Eye Catch: One of them has Fumie with Mari and the Cures as she paints a watercolor of Cure Ink then one whereFumie bangs a gravel to call a club meeting over.
  • Ghost Amnesia: The only things Ayumu remembers are her name and that she's looking for "someone."
  • Half-Identical Twins: Kotone and Uta. Both have purple hair, but Kotone's looks closer to black and is straight and long, Uta's is more plum-purple, short, and in curly pigtails. And then as Cures, they look even less alike.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: When the team hears that Mora — actually the essence of Mora's power — "ate" the previous Precure and their companions, Fureyaa thinks he's being accused of cannibalism.
  • I'm Having Soul Pains: How the members of Mora determine there's an activated Dream Shard nearby. Turns out it's their own destroyed hopes reacting to the embodiment of hopes and dreams itself.
  • Nonuniform Uniform: The Cures' uniforms are all unique, with Cure Twirl wearing a red leotard over magenta bike shorts and Cure Beat wearing pants instead of a skirt.
  • Now or Never Kiss: In the movie, Washi and Hisa share a quick kiss just before the climactic battle.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted; one of the girls' parents is named Hibiki and so is one of their classmates. It actually causes a brief moment of confusion.
  • "On the Next Episode of..." Catch Phrase:
    • "Don't be late for next meeting!"
    • Replaced by "I don't know if I can make the meeting..." for more serious episodes.
    • The preview for episode 13 has "We're taking over the next meeting!"
  • Orcus on His Throne: Justified. The reason Nocturna doesn't go after Pretty Cure herself is because she's been horribly weakened and is recuperating.
  • Parental Abandonment: Mari is unwanted by both her mother and father, and hasn't seen them in years.
  • The Power of Love: Fureyaa's love for Uta cements his transition to the good side, Gachan's love for Nocturna keeps her sane, and Nocturna's love for her team is her redeeming quality.
  • Puppet Permutation: The Dream Charm being shattered not only mode-locked Hisa and Kaana, but turned Himemiya into a lifeless plush doll.
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: Hisa and Kaana were locked in their cute snake forms when the Dream Charm shattered. They get their human forms back by episode 25.
  • Sick Episode: Episode 10 sees Fumie too sick to carry on her Cure duties for the day.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Kotone first transforms into Cure Beat while seemingly falling to her doom.
    • In episode five, Fumie sings a bit of the dub-theme for "Thumbelina: A Magical Adventure."
    • When meeting Gachan for the first time, Kotone freaks and momentarily mistakes him for Dimentio.
    • In episode 15, Kemuri ends up in a dark green cloak and hood, and the Drama Club calls her "Majorin." Sound familiar?
    • In episode 19; one of Fumie's flashbacks reveals she had originally applied to Etoile Academy.
  • Victim of the Week: The Dream-Eating Cranes can possess both humans and inanimate objects.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: All Fureyaa wears on his upper body is a pair of shoulder-pads and a cape.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Mari for her grandmother—though it's a variation, since her grandmother is already proud of her. In the movie, Carrol is this for her father.
  • Wham Episode: Episode 28. Nocturna manipulates Mari into turning into a Dark Magical Girl, taking advantage of Mari's weaknesses and feelings of abandonment to turn her against Fumie, who is quite understandably hurt by Mari's Face–Heel Turn.
  • Wham Line:
    Fumie to Nocturna: That's not true, Ayumu! We know who you are! You were a Pretty Cure! Cure Honoria!
  • You Have Failed Me: Averted. No matter how often a member of Mora screws up, Nocturna always gives them another chance.
