'''Pretty Cure Entwined Hearts''' is a PrettyCure fanseries by [=TwinklingCupcake=], putting emphasis on ThePowerOfLove and having a mild "Shakespeare" theme.

[[MagicLand Kokoro]] is a vibrant, happy place where all the universe's love is guarded and nurtured by the royal family. On Prince Ti's tenth birthday, however, the kingdom is attacked by Shitsuren, a quartet bent on removing love and replacing it with heartbreak. Ti and his caretaker, Coffee, manage to escape - aided by '''Cure Ariel.''' As she points them towards earth, she gives them three [[TransformationTrinket Cure Signets]] so they can find more Pretty Cure and get help.

Cure Ariel is defeated and captured, while Ti and Coffee arrive in a small Japanese town. Eventually they locate three teenagers and form a small team:

* Hiromi Satou[=/=]'''Cure Capulet''': A book-loving ShrinkingViolet with a strong sense of justice.
* Misaki "Aki" Oshiro[=/=]'''Cure Montague''': A beautiful girl who would be a "school princess" if it weren't for her goofy side.
* Miho Sakura[=/=]'''Cure Portia''': A school drop-out who's trying to become a manga-writer.
* '''[[spoiler:Otome Aimiya]][=/=][[spoiler:Cure Ariel]]:''' [[spoiler:A Cure from Kokoro, who was captured in the attack by Shitsuren.]]

Other characters include:
* '''Prince Ti''': The young prince of Kokoro, and one of the [[MentorMascot Mentor Mascots.]]
* '''Coffee''': Ti's CoolBigSis and primary guardian since he had to flee Kokoro and leave behind his parents.

* AnAesop: Episode 19 - You are not obligated to forgive someone who was horrible to you.
* BattleCouple: Hiromi and Aki, who are dating.
* BeautyBrainsAndBrawn: Aki is Beauty, Hiromi is Brains, Miho is Brawn.
** BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Applies to both civilian and Cure forms. Hiromi has dishwater-blonde hair that turns golden as Cure Capulet, Aki has black hair that turns blue-black as Cure Montague, and Miho has cherry-red hair that turns a light orange as Cure Portia. [[spoiler:Otome is technically a redhead too, with cerise hair as a civilian, and magenta as a Cure.]]

* ChekhovMIA: Cure Ariel spends a lot of time depowered and held captive by Shitsuren. Finding and freeing her is part of Pretty Cure's agenda.
* ComingOutStory[=/=]{{Gayngst}}: Mostly averted. No one bats an eye at anyone's sexualities, and a flashback to Aki revealing her gender identity is met with a simple “Oh, okay, then you're a girl.” The only trouble comes from a random character misgendering Aki, but it's clearly accidental and not meant to be malicious. Said student even corrects himself in a later episode.

* ThePowerOfLove
* PowerTrio: Initially
** [[AvertedTrope Aversion to]] FourIsDeath when Cure Ariel is freed.
* [[spoiler:RedHerring]]: [[spoiler:There is brief suggestion that perhaps Noa, a girl from school who went missing pre-series, is Cure Ariel, and certain events leading to her disappearance do point to this. Except she's not; Cure Ariel is in fact Otome Aimiya, a girl from ''Kokoro'', not Earth.]]

* ShrinkingViolet: Hiromi
* StarcrossedLovers: [[spoiler: Cure Ariel and Shylock]]

* UsefulNotes/{{Transgender}}: Aki is a male to female transgender. Her chosen name is Misaki.
** The author has been praised for her portrayal of Aki, and the author herself wanted to portray a transgender person without any angst or drama.
-->'''[=TwinklingCupcake=]''': When I wrote this, I didn't want to put in any drama, or bullying, or depression regarding Aki's situation. Aki is transgender, but it's NOT a big deal. It's just part of who she is. She isn't transgender for the sake of angst or drama, she just IS. Because trans people? They exist. They simply exist. They aren't vehicles of angst or drama or tragedy, they just ARE. And I thought it would be great to have a transgender character who was simply transgender. Not a transgirl who was depressed or bullied or an outcast, not a transgirl whose entire characterization revolve around her being trans, but just a character who happened to be transgender...Media needs more trans characters who are simply characters, people who are not defined by their being trans.
* TransformationSequence: Aki and Hiromi share theirs, which includes:
** IKissYourHand
** HeadbuttOfLove
* TwoTeacherSchool: The only teacher seen is Mrs Matoko.
* VerbalTic: Ti ends his sentences with [[SuperGals "-datchu."]]
* VillainTeleportation
* WholeEpisodeFlashback: Episode 4
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Not just the heroes; almost ''everyone'' has an unusual hair color.
