Of Royalty and Ice

By Mecka_Gal

Mystery / Romance

A Race, a crash, a girl

I own nothing, except my character

This story is based on a story I thought up and then submitted to Cartoon Network. It was then rejected. I then thought, 'if they won't do it, then I will.'

Enjoy my little project. I'll try to make them NOT OC, but if I do, just yell at me in the comments

Also, absolutely NO relation to 'Frozen,' because I thought of it way before that movie even had trailers or a website (you will understand later).

Anyways, this is just an introductory chapter. Enjoy!


Finn wandered the halls of the Candy Castle with Jake, exploring the halls of the castle that they were normally not allowed to go into. They were waiting for the Princess to finish an urgent meeting that she had been called to during their visit. Originally, they had arrived because she told them that there was an important mission that they were going to have to do. She was called away before she could tell them what it was, so they wandered away from where she left them.

"Finn, man, we should probably head back. The Princess is probably done with her meeting." Jake said, "AND she told us to never wander back here; she said it was dangerous."

Finn looked at his brother and raised an eyebrow at him. "Since when do you shy away from danger?"

"Since when did you disobey an order from PB?" Jake asked, "Besides, I'd rather not get into her personal biz. You can't mess with a lady's biz, man."

Finn sighed and looked forward again. They were just entering a long, curved hallway which would probably just lead to another hallway; the castle was pretty symmetrical with the hallways and rooms. Finn then looked back at Jake and gave him a lop-sided grin.

"We should head back… but I'll beat you to it!" He said as he started racing down the hallway laughing.

"Hey, wait! No fair man! Cheater!" It took Jake only a second to start after him in his normal form; it was agreed that his bigger forms were cheating. However, after seeing Finn turn the corner, he grew in size immediately to become faster. It isn't cheating if he cheated first, he thought.

Just as Jake rounded the corner, Finn came back around the corner he had disappeared behind. "Hey man, dea-"

Before he finished his statement, Jake barreled into him, knocking Finn off his feet and tripping Jake. He rolled around the corner before crashing into the wall that stopped Finn. The walls broke under his weight and he barreled into the room before going back to his normal size, stopping his castle destruction. He stopped just as Finn came into the room behind him.

"What the Glob, Jake! You were cheating! I can't beat you when you do that and you know it!" He said, standing over Jake and ignoring the room entirely; Jake destroying things didn't faze him anymore, since it happened often.

Jake laughed and stood up to face him. "It isn't cheating when…" He stopped midsentence when he saw that someone watching them in the corner of the room he accidentally broke into.

Finn didn't seem to notice, and continued to rage at his brother. "When what?! I didn't cheat! If anything, you-" He was again stopped by Jake abruptly grabbing him and turning him to where he was looking. He was about to yell at him again, but then saw what he was looking at.

She was pressed into the corner as far as she could go, staring at them with wide eyes. Finn realized that arguing with his brother was probably just making her more frightened. Well, He thought, crashing into her room unannounced probably wasn't good for that either.

Finn started to approach her with his hands in the air, trying not to startle her more than they had. "Hey, we're sorry that we broke into your room," he glared back at Jake, "But somebody wasn't looking where they were going."

She looked at him silently, and then started to leave the corner to meet Finn halfway. She copied his actions, raising her hands as well. When Finn put his hands down, she mimicked his actions, and continued to look at him silently. Every motion Finn made, she did as well after a moment of hesitation.

Jake chuckled at that, and said, "Looks like you found a mirror man. Nice job."

Finn glared back at Jake, and the girl took steps back to retreat into the corner again. Finn, realizing what she was doing, stopped her by putting a hand on her shoulder. "Hey, Jake won't hurt you. We're good guys. You can trust him."

The girl looked at Finn, and nodded. Finn smiled back at her and looked at her for the first time since he approached her.

She wore a pinkish dress with a blue bow around her waist. She had human features, but with a skin tone that showed she was not human, nor a hyooman. It was a pinkish candy-like color, like the princess, but mixed with a color he could not place. Her hair was a lighter pink than her skin, but with strands of a darker pink near the back of her head. She was about as tall as Finn, if a bit shorter, but looked his age as well. Her eyes were a purple color, almost a blue, but not quite a red either.

What Finn found odd, however, was the circlet on top of her head. It was golden yellow color, with a single red jewel in the middle. It was not raised, like the other princesses tiaras, but on the same level as the band itself. Usually a tiara indicated royalty, which is what he found weird, but he would have seen her before at the Meeting of Ooo Royalty, which was a monthly occurrence.

Jake saw what he was looking at and approached the girl as well. He stood next to Finn, both looking at the circlet on her head. They were both thinking about how she would have a crown on her head, but never seen her before. They all stood in silence- the girl more uncomfortable, but not wanting to break the silence- until Jake spoke up.

"Um, PB is probably done with her meeting and… um…" he mumbled, finally looking away and at Finn. He looked at the damage he caused, "we should probably fix that too…"

Finn finally snapped out of his daze at the mention of the Princess and looked to the wall as well, finally looking at the room. It was a blank lab-like room, with a bed towards the wall Jake broke.

"Yeah, man. The Princess would not like it that we broke the castle; you know, more than usual." He looked back at the girl, who visually stiffened at the mention of the word 'Princess'.

Just as he was going to ask, a Banana Guard finally showed up. He showed up panting, and looked at Finn and Jake, completely ignoring the destruction and the girl (who looked absolutely panicked at the sight of the oversized Banana), and finally spoke after regaining his breath. "The Princess can't see you today. The meeting is going to go on until tonight. She says it can wait. So you can go home if you want."

The guard then saluted, and left the room. After a moment of silence, he spoke up, "well, there goes our adventure. Come on man, let's patch this place up and go."

Finn looked to his brother, then to the girl (who looked much more relieved at the Banana leaving the room), and then to the wall. "Yeah, let's fix this up and get going." Turning to the girl, next, he said, "I'm sorry that we broke in here like this. We'll fix this place up for you."

After fixing the wall (which had a candy-steel door, another thing Finn found odd), he stood there, about to close the door, and looked back to the girl, who really hadn't moved or said anything since they came in.

He looked at her, and then at Jake, who was waiting at the end of the hall for him to come. He looked back at the girl, who was staring back at him with piercing eyes. He forgot what he was going to say for a moment, and then he remembered. "Um… sorry again for breaking your wall… and door… so, um…" he looked at her a moment longer, then, hearing Jake sigh impatiently, he looked at the floor in front of himself. "Bye, then…"

He started to close the door when her hand suddenly hit his, opening the door again. Startled, he looked up to see her standing there back at him. He didn't quite know what to say to her; stopping him threw him off-guard. He looked at her face, which had an expression he couldn't quite place on her face. He opened his mouth, and then closed it again, still not understanding her sudden action.

Finally, after what (to Finn) seemed like hours, he started to speak, only to be cut off when she finally spoke for the first time since he met her.

"Take me with you."
