"Pretty Cure Season's Delight" is a fanseries written by Jikochuu with a seasons and food motif. It can be read here.
Seven years ago, Miyabi Ouka was about to get eaten by a monster on her way home, only to be rescued by the mysterious Cure Cinnamon. And until then, she had never forgotten her gratitude to her secret heroine. But when history repeated itself during her birthday party, Miyabi sought the help of a fairy named Mocha to become one of the legendary warriors, Pretty Cure.
As Cure Taffy, Miyabi is to collect enough Sugar Hearts for the Candy Box to restore Mocha's fallen kingdom, Sugarland back to its former glory, all while fighting the evil forces of Bittersweet, who wants to spread bitter despair on the populace. Of course, she has to assemble her own team first and find the missing Cure Cinnamon.
- Miyabi Ouka (Cure Taffy): The main character of the series. An aspiring pattissier who aims to make people happy with her creations, but comes off as being too stern and bossy to cheer anyone up.
- Kei Chinatsu (Cure Butterscotch): A laid-back girl who slacks off at everything, except her love for swimming. Is actually a lot smarter than it seems, but could not cook to save her life.
- Yui Fubuki (Cure Gelato): An extremely shy and reclusive girl who's the only member of the literature club. Has a certain fondness for the fantasy genre and magical girls.
- Tenma Anno ( Cure Cinnamon): A popular highschooler who looks down on everyone, seeing as she's the daughter of the town's mayor. She's not actually from this world, but rather the next heir of throne in the Sugarland Kingdom. She can only remember her heritage in her Cure form.
- Vanilla: The leader. The spiteful young sister of the Queen of Sugarland, she aims to overthrow the throne, eliminate its heir, and spread sadness on both Sugarland and Earth.
- Anise: A girl who looks the same age as the Cures. She finds destruction and suffering fun, often treating her targets like mere toys.
- Sorrel: The group's suave tactician. But in spite of his gentlemanly attitude, he is a sore loser, and could not let go of a grudge so easily.
- Thyme: They are frail and weak, and is often seen sleeping in their Lair and even during fighting! But their strength and agility is impressive, and acts as the powerhouse of the group in spite of their lazy tendencies.
