Written by Firechick12012, Twilight Pretty Cure is one of many Pretty Cure fan series, but unlike most of its predecessors, it's not posted on LiveJournal first, but on Fanfiction.net due to chapters exceeding the page limit.
As of now, chapters 1-36 have been posted, and its final chapters have been posted up, making it technically complete.
Sadly, the story became the target of an online backlash from people who felt some of the issues it tackled were inappropriate for an Pretty Cure fanfic, or were not being handled sensitively enough. In light of these comments, the author embarked on a massive rewrite, but the experience had affected her confidence so badly that she eventually felt unable to continue and marked the story as "abandoned". And let's leave it at that.
This fanfic contains examples of:
- Abusive Parents: Anzu's mother is very controlling and traditionalist, though seems to be working on this. Mana Katsunuma is straight up cruel, subjecting Zenjin to unthinkable abuse since toddlerhood all because she wanted someone to blame for her daughter's death.
- All of the Other Reindeer
- Bittersweet Ending: The girls manage to save the world, and life goes on, but at a price. Both Zenjin and Mana die from their excessive usage of the Energia, many others have died long before then, Kyoya has to live life permanently paralyzed and having lost a long long member of his family, Kayoko lost the son she had been searching for her whole life, and the King and Queen of Rozaniela have to reconsider their way of doing things on their planet so as to prevent the same tragedy from repeating itself.
- By the Power of Grayskull!: "Pretty Cure, let the light shine!"
- Has Two Mommies: Gender-inverted: Hotaru's parents are two gay men, with one of them being her biological father.
- HeelFace Turn: Beileag, as of episode 26.
- Kindhearted Cat Lover: Riko, big time. She absolutely adores cats to the point of owning fake cat ears and tails, having two cats of her own (Caroline and Reese), gives her fictional characters cat features, and even has cat ears and a tail in Cure form.
- Light 'em Up: Since the motif of the series is light, it's par for the course that the girls have light based powers and abilities.
- Playing with Fire: Cures Dawn and Dusk have fire powers, though they use them differently, resulting in them manifesting differently.
- Sick Episode: Episode 11, where Sunbeam is sick from a combination of both culture shock and stress from Zenjin's betrayal.
- Timed Mission: Decebal explains that the girls have exactly an hour to purify any Corrupt Sentinels or the person will die.
- Transformation Trinket: The Heart Lighters, star shaped perfume bottles in different colors.
