CDO 10… Part 2 – Contact Us!

NOTE: This post is sticky. Scroll down for more recent posts.

About a year ago, the ATP had a Count Down of 10 (CDO 10), where we released 10 huge prizes. Because of complications we never officially announced the last update (although most of you kinda figured out that it was an email for the blog). Well, after an entire year… here it is!!!

To contact myself (Spotted Dragon) and the ATP team email us at theatpteam@adventuretimepop.com! Or visit out Contact Us Page (under About) to fill out a contact form. Now I know what you might be thinking: Why is the address at “adventuretimepop.com” instead of something like “gmail.com?” Is SD finally getting her own URL??? Yeah, um… not right now, sorry. My father is messing around with some URL stuff, so hopefully we will get our own address soon. ;) (Just don’t get your hopes up, okay?)

We would love it if you sent in things for TNPT (more on that below), for our Fan Art Page, and island guides that we don’t already have up.

Also, we haven’t had a party in a while and that just won’t work. So, I’m gonna make a deal with you guys. Once we reach 50,000 hits, we will have a huge party on Xat/Poptropica! We are currently a bit over 46,000. Please spread the word so we can have a party sooner! :D

Okay, I want to start making more issues of The New Pop Times as well. We are going to have a new “Fan Mail” article, where viewers like you can send in your artwork, stories, costumes, and more! We have a new “Ask Us” article too, where you can ask us blog/Poptropica/Adventure Time related questions! If you want us to advertise something for you or you want to answer the quiz (now called “Trivia Time”) you can either email us or comment on the most recent TNPT post. ;)

Now for the juicy stuff…

Poptropi-Con Island is coming!

Our theories were correct! (and may I proudly mention that the ATP was the very first Poptropica site to post about this new island :D )

There is not much information that Captain Crawfish gave us, but it sounds cool!

What do you think of this idea? Comment below!

PAM (March & April)

ATP icon - PAM

Just… whoa… I know. But, you guys know I’ve been trying to update things around here, so… Here are your Poptropicans and Adventurers of the Months of March and April! For March and April, a poll was set up. Sadly, we forgot to post about those months and May and June.

The March 2014 Poptropican is…

Spotted Dragon!

If you don’t realize already, that’s me. XD Thanks everyone! I’m glad you like my posts and comments around the blogging community!

The March 2014 Adventurer is…

Spotted Dragon!

Again I guess! I promise you that I don’t rig these things. And remember, you CAN vote for someone that isn’t an ATP author. ;)

The April 2014 Poptropican is…

FruitBat7777!

Congrats! FB is an awesome author and is great at coming up with theories. We are totally lucky to have him on the team! :)

The April 2014 Adventurer is…

HPuterpop!

Congrats! HP really dives into all the behind the scenes scoops when writing his posts. Having him on the team was a blast. :P

Congrats to our winners! :D

I leave you with this question: Should we continue PAM? Many of the same people are getting chosen month after month. Plus, we are always forgetting to post results (With no reminders from viewers, therefore it doesn’t seem to be that popular). I am most likely going to discontinue this series, but I want your opinion. If a lot of people want the series to go on, I will post some polls soon. If you aren’t really a big fan of the series, that’s fine. Don’t feel bad or anything.

Comic-Con Commotion!

Comic-Con has arrived in San Diego yet again, and Cartoon Network is there to help celebrate! For those of you who don’t exactly know what this event is, it’s a huge convention where you can meet all the people from your favorite shows, books, etc. So for the people who are going and for the people who just want to feel involved, here is some more info on what’s happening.

Cartoon Network Booth (#3735)

You can find the crew at their booth Thursday through Sunday (24-27). Plus, you can go to awesome panels where crew from specific shows talk  about behind the scenes stuff, upcoming episodes, etc. Here is the schedule:

10:00 am on Friday July 25 - Clarence and Uncle Grandpa panel
11:00 am on Friday July 25 - Adventure Time panel
10:00 am on Saturday July 26 - Steven Universe panel
11:00 am on Saturday July 26 - Regular Show panel
All 4 panels are at the Hilton Bayfront

Oooh, that second one sounds fun… sadly I’m not going.

Anyway, you can also get some sweet signed posters at the booth!

Oh my gosh I’m dying over here! XD To see the rest of the posters, click here.

Okay, now LSP needs help finding a date for the Princess Ball and needs your help, if you’re attending Comic-Con! Fans can visit all of the AT merch booths and help LSP find her dream date in a 2014 Adventure Time ConQuest! Hehehe… I see what they did there. Everyone participating needs to follow the secret text-messaged clues (I’m assuming you can find out more at the event), visit booths with the coolest AT swag, and just have fun! No need to stress. ;)

Don’t forget, each booth has special incentives and rebates for totally mathematical Adventure Time products.

When you finish the ConQuest you earn a lumpin’ awesome, exclusive“Oh My Glob!” medallion. And if you bring medals you earned from 2012 (Jake) and 2013 (Ice King), along with the LSP medal, to The New Children’s Museum redemption center, you will earn a triple-threat award! How mathematical would that be??? You can not comprehend how lumpin’ jelly I am right now. :P

Chronicles of SF – Chapter 2

Okay guys, I’m back from my trip, so I can finally post Chapter 2 of the Chronicles of Sleepy Feather. :)

-

Creepy Hamburger, or Crep as his friends called him, had seen some pretty weird things in his lifetime.

But none of that prepared him for seeing a person fall from the sky and land in the ocean just a few meters away from his raft. It was followed by another person.

Crep acted fast. He picked up the makeshift oar that he was using to try and steer the boat towards Cryptids Island, where he lived, and paddled over to where the people had landed.

His sister, Shiny, woke up when the boat began to move. “Crep? Like, where are we going?” Crep didn’t answer her, and instead moved the raft towards.

“Over here!” he yelled, stretching out his hand to grab hold of the Poptropican in the water. He watched as the person’s head raised out from the water, and when she turned to him, he stared in surprise. “Spots? What are you doing here?”

He pulled Spots onto the raft, and both of them pulled up Sleepy, who was knocked unconscious. “Stupid pilot dropped us off here…” Spots muttered, then glanced up at Crep. “You wouldn’t happen to know if Astro-Knights is close, would you?”

Crep shrugged. “I don’t really know. Shiny and I ran away from – ”

Spots cut him off. “Carnival Island!”

Crep nodded. “How do you know?”

She grimaced. “I’m a genius. What do you think?”

He shrugged in answer to her question. “You aren’t going there, are you? Spots, it’s too dangerous!”

Spots shook her head. “But we have to save Silver,” she replied quietly, gazing off into the distance.

Shiny spoke. “So, like, Silver was taken? And you want to save her? Like, the entire place is full of people, and these weird guards are all like ‘YOU SHALL NOT PASS!’”

Spots glanced up at Shiny, as if confused why the older Hamburger sibling was actually being civil to her. “Exactly what happened at the Monster Carnival, Shiny?” she asked.

“Um, so, we went because we wanted to, like, have a good time at the carnival? But the clowns were so boring, so we left. And then we were, like trying to find the Blimp-Port so we could go back, but then we heard this scream, and we saw this weird monster chasing this girl!” Shiny shuddered at the memory, and Crep couldn’t blame her. That monster was creepy.

“So the girl got bitten, and she turned into a monster. So we ran, and found this boat, but before we could leave a monster broke most of it, so now it’s just a raft. And we’re trying to find a way home,” he finished.

Spots nodded, musing about what to do. “How far are you from Carnival Island?” she asked.

“Not far. Can I take you?” he suggested, leaping at an idea to make Spots like him. After all, he did kind of have a crush on her, so…

“We aren’t going back, Crep!” Shiny yelped angrily. “You can’t take her and her even-more uncool friend to Carnival Island! What kind of older sister lets her brother take two random girls to a dangerous island?”

Crep sighed. “Shiny, we have to go. They need to rescue all those people!”

Shiny laughed. “Look, Crep, I know you think the sun shines out of her jacket, but Spotted Dragon can’t rescue all those people!”

Crep swallowed. “Sleepy’ll be there, too.” He picked up the oar stubbornly. “I think Carnival Island is that way,” he added to Spots and Sleepy, who had just woken up from her unconsciousness.

And, ignoring Shiny’s protests, Crep began to row the raft in the direction that he hoped Carnival Island was.

Whoa… nice work SF! Can’t wait to see what happens next! :D
