[[caption-width-right:250:The five chosen Keepers in fairy form.]]

An Adventure/Fantasy ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' fanfiction by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2100801/Akela_Victoire Akela Victoire]] that can be read [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6229246/1/Keepers_of_the_Elements here.]]

In this story, ever since around the 12th Century, five girls, called "Keepers" are chosen to manipulate the Five Elements: Water, Fire, Earth, Air and Energy. Since then it has been going down the lines until the responsibility falls on five of the ''Total Drama'' girls, Bridgette, Izzy, Heather, Lindsay and Gwen. Problem? There's an evil immortal wizard named Radcliffe who wants to get rid of them and thus be able to take over all of existence. Their trainers [[TheSmartGuy Marissa]], [[TheHeart Aideen]], [[TheLancer Deanna]], [[TheBigGuy Akari]] and [[TheHero Vesta]] respectively are going to have quite the handful!

* ElementalShapeshifter: All Keepers can transform into the Element they keep.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Marina and Magalie are princesses of the Aequori [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaids]]. [[spoiler:Sierra]] is Princess of Nadir. Why must they be princesses? Because one doesn't find many constitutional republics in {{high fantasy}}.

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Queen Tiana is the most prominent example. She has been Queen since the age of fifteen and has been balancing school and her royal duties pretty well, even going on to university to study Mechanical Engineering.
