The Valiant Knight and the Noble Prince

Chapter Text

  • Of course Henry and Jasper were going to fall in love, like that feels obvious lol 
  • Henry was also going to eventually figure out that Ray is the VK
  • He’d then learn how Ray became invincible in the first place
  • The story goes that he was very sickly when he was an infant and so his mother made a deal with a wizard in order to grant him invincibility and ensure his survival
  • I hadn’t quite worked out what the consequences of that deal were yet, but they weren’t good
  • Oh, and the wizard? Schwoz
  • After Minyak stole Schwoz’s spellbook, he implored the help of another villain in order to steal those weapons that Knight Squad used in the finale against Ryker (the ones that can remove invincibility spells 👀)
  • The villain that helps him is Gwen
  • Meanwhile, Henry and Siren end up having this big blowout because she knows about him and Jasper and he wants to take Jasper to his coronation as his date, but Siren is adamant about his arranged marriage
  • I know that seems a bit cold, but the reason she doesn’t want him with Jasper is that she knows it can only lead to heartbreak and she doesn’t want that for Henry
  • She talks things out with Jake and (perhaps this is a bit OOC but idk who else she could have this discussion with) he finally is pretty much just like “listen…Henry has given up SO MUCH of his childhood for his princely duties, and he’s never complained once. Don’t you remember what it’s like to be seventeen and in love?? Don’t you think our son deserves to experience that?? Besides, the marriage is still a few years away, and how many relationships do you know of at his age last that long??” So then Siren’s like “okay, fair” so during Henry’s coronation party, she tells him that he can go get his boo 😂😂
  • So, Henry sneaks out to the garden with Jasper and he’s going to tell him that he loves him (I know cheesy and cliche but kskfkd) but before he can, Minyak shows up
  • This launches this big long battle
  • The first OG storyline was that Minyak seemingly loses but he gets away, but before he does, he tells Henry he’s going to take away everything he loves, starting with the thing he loves most
  • So, Jasper dies (I’M SORRY)
  • I had part of that scene written out which I’ll include, but keep in mind that it’s a first draft, and I wrote it close to maybe a year or even two years ago, so it definitely wouldn’t be the same if I were to write it today (also, warnings, mention of blood.)

  • Of course, Henry’s devastated, so he’s starting pleading to Piper to bring him back using magic, but her magic isn’t strong enough for something like that
  • So, then Henry asks Ray if the wizard that helped him as a kid could also help Jasper
  • Ray hesitates
  • Technically there is a spell, if done by the right person, that can bring a person back from the dead if the spell is cast within 48 hours from the time of death
  • But, the price of bringing someone back is VERY high and that’s why it’s barely ever performed
  • Henry doesn’t care, he wants Jasper back
  • So, Ray reluctantly tells Henry where he can find Schwoz
  • I have that scene written out too, but same deal

  • Henry, Piper, Anais, and Charlotte all start on this journey into the mountains to meet this wizard
  • Of course it’s treacherous
  • They encounter a dragon, but Charlotte gets it to chill because surprise! She can communicate with animals
  •  I hadn’t decided on the other obstacles yet, but it uses all of the kids’ skills; Piper’s magic, Anais is a sharpshooter, and Henry’s kindness and empathy (I know that sounds strange but hopefully it wouldn’t be in context)
  • Anyway, they locate Schwoz and he’s…well Schwoz ajdksk (meaning he’s eccentric and wild much like he is now, just with magic instead of science)
  • He doesn’t want to bring Jasper back and first because consequences and all that
  • But Henry makes his plea, so finally Schwoz agrees
  • it ends being an eye-for-an-eye type thing, so Jasper lives but Siren dies a few days later
  • Here’s part of that scene

  • I HATE that I was following that trope of killing a woman to further a man’s story, but Siren was the true ruler of Swellville, so killing her off creates a new obstacle for Henry because we all know his dad’s fucking useless. Also, Henry never wanted Jasper to find out about the deal or why Siren died, so he kind of distanced himself from him 
  • but then the show pissed me off so I changed the storyline after the big battle 
  • Jasper still died (I’M SORRY AGAIN) 
  • And Minyak actually won the battle so the kingdom fell to him and everything went to hell 
  • A year passes and eventually Henry goes to Charlotte and Anais and is like “we gotta find a way to fix this” 
  • so Ray tells them about Schwoz and they go on their journey
  • and Schwoz is like “I have a spell that turns back time”, but he only had enough power to do it once, so Henry really needed to make it count
  • so they end up going back in time a whole ass year and Henry just runs to Jasper 
  • and Jasper’s like “I just saw you yesterday?? why are you freaking out??”
  • but of course, Henry’s breaking down because he thought he’d never see him again and now, here is! Alive and well! and all smiley! and happy!  
  • so they go through the battle again, but this time Henry knows what happens and he’s ready for it
  • also forgot to mention that the Knight Squad helps out both times
  • with a little Tiara Thief thrown in their cause I MISS THEM
  • Ray ends up getting hit with the weapon that takes away invincibility 
  • Henry and co. pretty much win but in a little twist, Minyak gets a second wind and he tries to kill Henry, but Ray sacrifices himself last minute to save him (lmao I know, but suspend your disbelief here) 
  • Anyway, Henry takes over the VK mantle after his death and also as just as a way to protect his kingdom
  • Charlotte says “fuck your rules” and comes out about her secret girlfriend, and both her and Henry are like “we’re the rulers now, we’ll combine the kingdoms, but we are NOT getting married” 
  • and I mean like, they’re king and queen of their respective kingdoms, nobody can say anything lsjflskdf
  • nobody does, though. everyone loves duchess Anais, and Henry’s so kind and compassionate and a good ruler that the people of Swellville are just like “as long as your happy, dude” sladkflsdk (of course, it breaks all the teen girls’ and some boys too, but it is what it is lol) 
  • so anyway, you all know Henry and Jasper end up together in the end 
  • and uhhh?? I think that’s it. 
  • also here’s two more scenes I had written out that I’m absolutely cringing at but slkdfjl I wrote them so now y’all are gonna have to look at them
