Speaker Text
Female narrator: Once upon a time... In a far away land, all eyes were on Apple as she made the most important declaration of her life.
Apple White: I am Apple White, daughter of Snow White, and I am ready to pledge my destiny.
The students are cheering for Apple.
Freeze frame.
Male narrator: Of course you'd start with Apple, always playing favorites. Start at the beginning of the school year.
Female narrator: Oh, fine. Gather round, friends, and let us tell you a story: the story of Ever After High, a high school for the teenage sons and daughters of the most famous fairy tale characters who ever lived. But this year was like no other for the students of Ever After High.


Female narrator: Apple's Tale, the story of a Royal. [Apple and Briar are chatting and walking to the school.] For it is the year of the Legacy Day; a momentous event where the students pledge to all the magical world to follow the same paths as their fairy tale parents.
Apple White: I can't believe it. Legacy Day happens this year and there's just ever so much to do!
Briar Beauty: Totally, right! I mean this year's after party is gonna be a page ripper! I heard DJ N-Chant is gonna—
Apple White: [She walks in front of Briar.] Briar, it's not just about the party. This is destiny! Future queen! We can't let anyone post embarrassing pictures of us on MyChapter.
Briar Beauty: Hey! Daughter of Sleeping Beauty. If I'm gonna be catching Z's for a hundred years, I gotta live it up now! Hm, and come on, no one would post anything bad about you! [Briar and Apple walk up the steps.] Everybody loves you!
Pig #3: It's Apple White!
Son of the Hero of Haarlem: [Dreamy sigh.]
Lilly-Bo Peep: Gorgeous!
Sheep: [Happy bleating.]
Tiny: [Steps in.] Can I carry your books?
Apple White: Why, Tiny! Aren't you the sweetest little thing? [Gives them to Tiny.] Thank you!
Briar Beauty: See? They love you! Oh-oh! [She holds Apple's hands.] I don't wanna miss a minute of our first day. [Walks away.] Hi, everybody! Hey, what's up? Howdy!
Daring Charming: Daring is standing alone with a hand over his mouth.

Hahaha!

Apple White: [Walks up.] Hey, Prince Daring! Um, why are you holding your hand over your mouth?
Daring Charming: Well, you see, I just got my teeth whitened and Headmaster Grimm said I can't show people, 'cause...
Apple White: But your smile is so charming!
Daring Charming: Well, you know... [Flashes his smile and it blinds Tiny.]
Tiny: Ah! My eyes! I can't see! Ah! [Falls over.] I'm okay!
Daring and Apple: [Chuckling and giggling.]
Blondie Lockes: Apple! Daring! [She giggles as Daring clicks his fingers.] So, [Unlocks MirrorPad.] any juicy dating details for my Mirror Cast show? [Points it to Apple.] Talk to the Mirror!
Apple White: Ah, Blondie! Daring and I are still not a couple! This is high school. [Daring holds her hand.] We've got forever after to be together!
Blondie Lockes: But you two are the perfect couple. Not too this, not too that, you're just right!
Daring Charming: Come on, Apple, let's go get some lunch. Charm you later! [Flashes his smile at Blondie and she covers her face. He and Apple walk away.]
Blondie Lockes: Oh! Oh-ah! [Walks away.]


Female narrator: And so that night, back in the Ever After dorms, Apple had a surprise waiting for her new roommate.
Briar Beauty: You think Raven's gonna like this? [Apple runs over.]
Apple White: Of course! What future Evil Queen wouldn't love an evil throne, an evil crown, and an evil haunted mirror?
Briar Beauty: True. Huh. But why are you doing this for Raven?
Apple White: Because she's such an important part of my story! When she poisons me, it changes everything. Then the prince can wake me, and I become queen. [Holds Briar's hands.] That's when I get my Happily Ever After. [Wink.] I need her!
Raven Queen: [(From outside; knocking.)] Hey! Maddie?
Apple White: Quick! Hide! I don't want Raven to know you helped me.
Briar Beauty: I'll go out the window. I've never done that before. [Runs towards the window.] Ha ha! [Jumps out.] Wheeeeeee...!
Apple White: [Turns around.] Welcome home, roomie!
Raven Queen: Huh, good one, Apple. I'm rooming with Maddie this year.
Apple White: [Shakes head confidently.] Not anymore!
Raven Queen: Huh?
Daring Charming: Man! I am good-looking! [He holds out his arms.]
Briar Beauty: [Still falling.] ...eeeeee! Oh! [Daring catches her with his arms accidentally open.] Daring? How'd you know I was gonna be here?
Daring Charming: Catching damsels in distress: [He drops Briar.] it's kinda my thing.
Briar Beauty: Well, that was A TOTAL RUSH! [Stands up and runs back.] Stay here! I'm going again. [She laughs and Daring readies his arms.]


In Book End, Briar and Apple are walking together.
Briar Beauty: Hey, you wanna get a hocus latte?
Apple White: Oh, that sounds magical. I love mine with nutmeg. How do you like yours?
Briar Beauty: Oh, I like a-lot-a-lot-a-lot-a-lot of cream.
The two giggle together and they find Ashlynn at the front of her shoe store.
Ashlynn Ella: Hey!
Apple White: Hi, Ashlynn!
Ashlynn Ella: Wanna go on a nature hike later? I haven't been in the woods in days and it just feels so good to get back to what really matters.
Delivery goose: I got a shipment here; a three hundred new shoes for the Glass Slipper.
Ashlynn Ella: New! Shoes! Ahhh haha! Where?!
The delivery goose points to the sky and more delivery geese fly by with several packages. They drop them below and Ashlynn catches all of them.
Briar Beauty: It's a shoe thing!
Apple White: Well, she is Cinderella's daughter! [Briar nods.] Ooh, time for our Legacy Day rehearsal. I can't wait for everyone to get a glimpse of the queen I am going to become.
Briar follows Apple but accidentally catches a shoe box falling from above. Ashlynn snatches it out of her hands while catching hundreds of boxes.


Back at school, some students are gathered together for their Legacy Day rehearsal.
Female narrator: But what Apple didn't know was that Raven Queen had other plans...
Male narrator: That would change the world for the better.
Female narrator: For the worse!
Milton Grimm: So, when your magical key appears, you insert it gently into the Storybook of Legends, then stand; shoulders back, and declare your destiny to the world! Have I made myself clear?
Raven Queen: [Holds a finger out.] But what if...
Milton Grimm: No questions? [Nods.] Good. Who will go first?
Apple White: [She inches forward and raises her hand.] Oh! Me! Me! Me! Em! Ah! Uh! Uh!
Milton Grimm: Step right this way, [Apple takes the key in his hand.] my future queen. [He bows in respect.]
Apple White: I am Apple White, and I pledge to follow my destiny as the next Snow White!
Milton Grimm: Perfect!
Apple White: [She turns around and returns the key.] I know.
Briar Beauty: [Boringly.] I am Briar Beauty and I pledge to follow in my mom's footsteps and sleep for a hundred years. [Excitedly.] BUT BEFORE I DO, I'm gonna live every minute! Oh, speaking of which, my dorm room, Friday night, we're gonna blow the roof off the place, and—
Milton Grimm: Next!
Daring Charming: [Daring dances towards the podium.] Hey, there! Charming. Daring Charming. I pledge to be just like my old man, King Charming: brave, good-looking, kind, good-looking, thoughtful, and good-looking. [Clicks and smiles.]
Milton Grimm: Next!
Raven Queen: I'm Raven Queen and I pledge to follow my destiny as... um... I have a question.
Milton Grimm: What is it?
Raven Queen: I was just wondering, I mean, what if I don't want to take the pledge?
Madeline Hatter: [Gasp.]
Pesky: Eeee!
Hunter Huntsman: [Gasp.]
Daring shuts her mouth which is hanging open.
Apple White: She has to do it! [She smacks Daring in the face by accident.] I mean, if-if she never poisons me, then I'll never fall asleep, [Throttles Daring lightly.] and-and I'll never be kissed by my prince, and I'll never become queen, and I'll never have my Happily Ever After!
Milton Grimm: Now, Raven, erase that dangerous idea from your head. Continue!
Raven Queen: I have to go. [Raven runs off the stage.]
Apple White: What?!
Milton Grimm: But the rules are... The rules!


Apple runs to the Enchanted Forest and cries.
Female narrator: And so Apple took refuge that night in the Enchanted Forest, wondering what would become of her destiny should Raven not follow hers.
Apple White: [Gasps as the Headmaster appears right in front of her.] Oh! Headmaster Grimm?
Milton Grimm: Forgive me for startling you, my dear. I need you to keep an eye on your roommate, Raven. We must follow the paths set out before us. It's the only way to keep our world safe. Please, watch Raven and convince her of this. I know you'll do whatever it takes.
Apple White: I'll...

The Headmaster vanishes.

Female narrator: And so, on the grave portent about to befall Ever After High...
Male narrator: Must you always be so dramatic?
Female narrator: Must you always ruin my ominous endings? I mean...
Male narrator: You're always taking the Royal side...
Female narrator: I'm known for my endings...


Speaker Text
Male narrator: Once upon a time...
Lightning flashes.
In a faraway land...
Raven Queen: I am Raven Queen, daughter of the Evil Queen, and I pledge-uhm... I—
Apple is waiting behind Raven excitedly.
Apple White: Come on! Do it!
Raven Queen: I-huh...
Male narrator: All eyes were on Raven as she faced the most important choice—
Female narrator: Really? You're gonna start there, at Legacy Day?
Male narrator: You know, there's only really room for one narrator here.
Female narrator: Start at the beginning! Where the whole Rebel and Royal drama began!
Male narrator: Oh, fine! Gather round, friends, and let us tell you a story: the story of Ever After High, a high school for the teenage sons and daughters of the most famous fairy tale characters who ever lived. But this year was like no other for the students of Ever After High.


Male narrator: Raven's Tale, the story of a Rebel. It was the year of Legacy Day; [Raven and her friend Maddie are walking together to the school.] a momentous event where the students pledge to all the magical world to follow the same paths as their fairy tale parents.
Female narrator: Which they better do, or else!
Male narrator: I'm sorry, who's telling this story?! If you don't—
Madeline Hatter: Would you two stop fighting?! [She stomps her foot.] Peas and crackers!
Raven Queen: Um, who are you talking to?
Madeline Hatter: [Runs up to Raven.] Why, the narrators! Oh, you can't hear them, Raven, only I can.
Raven Queen: Okay...
Madeline Hatter: [Gasp.] Hehehe.
Raven Queen: Can I talk now?
Madeline Hatter: Mhm!
Raven Queen: It's just... Ah! I'm sick of everyone thinking I'm so "evil," because my mom was. It's not fair! [She sends her baggage to oblivion using her magic by accident.]
Madeline Hatter: [Puts a hand on Raven's shoulder.] No one thinks you're evil. Hehe, now you're just talking crazy! La-la-la!
Raven Queen: Daughter of the Mad Hatter calls ME crazy? [Sigh.]
Madeline Hatter: Would you stop with the worry-flurry? [She and Raven walk up the steps.] Everyone at school loves you!
Pig #3: It's Raven Queen! Run!
Son of the Hero of Haarlem: She. Is. Evil! [A fountain sprays at him.]
Lilly-Bo Peep: Run, everyone!
Sheep: [Alarmed bleating.]
Madeline Hatter: The students scream and hide away.

See? They love you! [Her watch springs open.] Yay, [Flings off her watch and sets up a tea table.] tea time! Earl Grey, [Earl Grey squeaks.] oh, you clever dormouse! Why, yes, [Pours tea out.] this is a new dress.


Male narrator: It's lunch time and Raven sits alone in the castleteria.

And so, life for Raven was not easy; feeling alone and isolated.

Female narrator: As it should be. She is destined to be evil.
Male narrator: Couldn't go twenty seconds without talking, could you?
Dexter Charming: Dexter notices Raven and approaches her.

[He waves and walks up to her.] Hey, Raven! Uh-You look gort... I mean great. I-I don't even know what gort is...

Raven Queen: I'd offer you a seat, but I'm "evil." To sit here you'd have to be pretty—
Daring and Apple enter the room and fans scream for them.
daring.
Violet-haired backgrounder: Oooh, Daring!
Dexter Charming: What? No, Raven, I'm Dex, Dexter Charming! Daring's my bro...[Flinches.] ther. Oh, gort.
Apple White: Raven, how's every enchanted thing?
Raven Queen: Apple White. Good to see ya. Hey, Daring!
Daring Charming: I-uh I have to warn you: don't stare at the teeth. Just got them whitened. [He flashes a smile in another direction. It tans the pigs.]
Apple White: The bell rings.

Oh-oh! There's the bell. Time for Good Kingdom Management. [Waves a hand to Raven.] Raven, what's your next class?

Raven Queen: [Reading.] Uh... History of Evil Spells?
Apple White: [Chuckling.] That is so perfect for you!
Daring Charming: Cerise walks past them.

Hey, Cerise, how's it going? [He smiles at her which causes her to drop her tray.

Cerise Hood: [Growling and coughing.] Oh uh, sorry, I-I have a cold! [Runs away.]
Pig #3: [Runs up.] Free food!


Male narrator: That night, as Raven returned to her dorm, she found quite the surprise waiting for her.
Raven Queen: [Knocking.] Hey! Maddie? [Lightly pushes the door open.]
Apple White: [Turns around.] Welcome home, roomie!
Raven Queen: Huh, good one, Apple. I'm rooming with Maddie this year.
Apple White: [Shakes head confidently.] Not anymore! Since you're such an important part of my story; you poison me, I fall asleep...
Raven Queen: The prince wakes you with a kiss blah-blah-blah, yada-yada I know! So?
Apple White: So, I asked headmaster Grimm if we could live together! And he said yes. [She nods excitedly.] Isn't that enchanting?
Raven Queen: Ugh... But-but...
Apple White: Oh-oh-oh! You are going to love rooming with me! I'm thoughtful, and beautiful, and I sing the most wonderful songs about woodland creatures. [She clears her throat and starts singing.] All the doves love to fly and the hares love to burrow!
Raven Queen: [Raven is annoyed and she shoos the doves out.] Move along, move along. Nothing to see here.
One dove unexpectedly stays and Raven strokes its chin.
Apple White: And, I already decorated your half of the room! [Clapping.] Isn't it just the evilest? I knew you'd love it!
Raven Queen: This is gonna be a looooong year. [She shrugs and continues playing with the dove.]


Male narrator: Which brings us to the rehearsals for the Legacy Day ceremony.
Milton Grimm: So, when your magical key appears, you insert it gently into the Storybook of Legends, then stand, shoulders back, and declare your destiny to the world! Have I made myself clear?
Raven Queen: [Holds a finger out.] Headmaster Grimm, but what if...
Milton Grimm: No questions? Good. Now, we're going to practice with this tiny Manual of Entirely Reasonable School Rules. [He clears his throat and signals the little pig to leave.] Who will go first?
Madeline Hatter: I, Madeline Hatter, pledge to follow the destiny of dear old dad: The Maaaad Hatter of Wonderland! When do we drink the tea?
Milton Grimm: Next!
Hunter Huntsman: I'm Hunter Huntsman and I pledge to follow my destiny as the next huntsman. I'll swing my axe bravely and—[He looks in the audience.]
Pesky: [Blows Hunter a raspberry.]
Hunter Huntsman: Really, Pesky? You wanna play that way?
Milton Grimm: Next!
Cedar Wood: I'm-I'm Cedar Wood, and-uh I pledge to follow my destiny and be the next Pinocchio. Well, I mean, not the next Pinocchio... huh. I mean, actually, I can only tell the truth while I'm in school, but then one day, one day I'm gonna lie... Uh, but does that mean I'm gonna be like my dad... or not like my dad...
Milton Grimm: Next!
Raven Queen: I'm Raven Queen and I pledge to follow my destiny as... um... I have a question!
Milton Grimm: What is it?
Raven Queen: I was just wondering, I mean, what if I don't want to take the pledge?
Madeline Hatter: [Gasp.]
Pesky: Eeee!
Hunter Huntsman: [Gasp.]
Apple White: Daring shuts her mouth which is hanging open.
Raven Queen: What? It's just a question!
Milton Grimm: [He sternly walks up to Raven.] And here's your answer. If you don't pledge your destiny, your story ceases to exist.
Raven Queen: Ceases to exist? So then... What happens to me?
Milton Grimm: You will cease to exist! Poof! [Raven backs away.] Now, Raven, continue.
Raven Queen: But, Mr. Grimm...
Milton Grimm: Poof-poof!

Raven flinches.

Raven Queen: Ah!.. I have to go.
Students are gasping as she leaves the podium.
Milton Grimm: But the rules are... The rules!
Students: Destiny!
Milton Grimm: [(From far away.)] Now, settle down everyone.


Male narrator: In the Vault of Lost Tales, deep beneath the school, another was listening: Giles Grimm, the brother of the school's headmaster.
Giles Grimm: The Raven flies. The clouds, they sing! But what should happen when the tide rolls in?
Raven Queen: [She sighs and sits on a log out in the forest.]
Male narrator: What will happen indeed.
Female narrator: That's it? That's where you're ending the story? I cannot wait until it is my turn to tell the story.
Male narrator: And why are you so against these kids choosing their own destiny?


Speaker Text
Outside on the school premises, the students are preparing decorations like banners for Legacy Day.
Female narrator: And so here we are, Legacy Day. Where the students of Ever After High sign the Storybook of Legends, [Raven walks toward the inside of the school building and students are whispering about her.] pledging to follow the paths of their fairy tale parents.
Male narrator: Or not.
Female narrator: Seriously? I'm narrating here!
Raven Queen: [Sigh.] Maddie, you have to help me. [She puts her hands on Maddie's shoulders.] I don't feel like I can sign the Storybook of Legends, but I don't wanna let everyone down either.
Madeline Hatter: And do not forget the whole, "If you don't sign, your story disappears—poof!—and you may vanish into oblivion!" [Gulps for air.] That's a thing you know, and it's gotta hurt.
Raven Queen: But we don't know if that's true.
Madeline Hatter: But what if it is?
Raven Queen: But what if it's not?
Madeline Hatter: But what if it is?
Raven Queen: You're not helping.
Madeline Hatter: [Taps her chin.] Wait a tick! [Snaps her fingers.] I think I know who can help.


Apple and Blondie are talking by Apple's locker.
Blondie Lockes: No, but see, I am totally a Royal.
Apple White: [Shuts her locker.] Ooh! Raven! [Waves her hand.] There you are. We have to talk.
Raven takes Madeline by the hand and she runs from Apple.

Oh! Come back! [She runs after Raven.]

Blondie Lockes: Apple, where are you going?
Apple White: I have to convince Raven to sign the book! My destiny depends on it!


Raven leads Madeline to hide in the library. She pants and is exhausted while Maddie knocks on a door. It immediately sucks them in the second before Apple comes in.
Apple White: [Apple enters the room.] Raven?
Madeline Hatter: If anyone knows the truth about the Storybook of Legends, it's Giles Grimm!
Giles Grimm: Feathers and friends! Together, alone. [Bows.]
Madeline Hatter: [Clapping.] He's speaking Riddlish! He was cursed with the babble spell. Makes him sound, you know...cu-roo-coocoo! He says it's nice to have us here.
Raven Queen: Ask him about the book! If I don't sign, am I really gonna... uh, disappear?
Madeline Hatter: Mmhmm! Can the musical chair change its tone when the tablet of granite is inscribed with a bone?
Giles Grimm: [Taps his chin.] Hmm...the king who sings with pages of sky fears too much the dawn that rises with lies.
Madeline Hatter: He says there's something wrong with the book, and that if you don't sign, your story will...
Raven Queen: What? WHAT?
Madeline sets up tea with Giles.
Madeline Hatter: Oh, sorry! If you don't sign, your story will continue.
Raven Queen: Ah, really? Oh that's great.
Madeline Hatter: ...I think. [She sips on tea.]
Raven Queen: Huh?! You think? [She slams the table.]
Madeline Hatter: Hey, Riddlish is not an exact language. [Flashes a polite smile at Raven and continues sipping her tea.]


Female narrator: At last, it was Legacy Day.
Milton walks up to the podium.
Milton Grimm: Next we have Apple White.
Students are cheering for Apple as she walks across the stage.
Apple White: I am Apple White, daughter of Snow White, and I am ready to pledge my destiny!
A key appears before Apple's hand and she takes it and unlocks the book with it. Immediately the book springs open with lifelike images of her and Raven's story. A mirror appears in front of her and Apple views her future self: a perfect queen ruling over Ever After. She eagerly signs the book and the students cheer for her. Before she departs, Apple gives the crowd kisses
Milton Grimm: And next, Raven Queen.
There is a lightning flash nearby and students are whispering as Raven steps to the podium.
Raven Queen: I am Raven Queen, daughter of the Evil Queen, and I pledge...um...I...
Apple is waiting behind Raven excitedly.
Apple White: Come on! Do it!
Raven looks back to Milton, who is in the background groaning in annoyance. Raven holds out her hand and a key appears. She takes it and unlocks the book and finds her own story unravel, with each illustration worse than the next. Finally her mirror of her future self appears and it is her in chains. Raven gasps in shock. The mirror transforms into a pen and Raven is hesitant to take it.
Raven Queen: I am Raven Queen, and I am going to write my own destiny! [Takes the book.] My Happily Ever After starts now! [She shuts it and mirrors shatter around her.]
Royal student: Oh my...
Madeline Hatter: Yaayyy!
Rebel student: Raven did it!
Raven Queen: [Sigh.] Oh I...I'm still here! [She turns to Milton angrily.] I didn't disappear!
Apple White: How could you be so...so selfish?
In support of Apple the Royals boo at Raven. In support of Raven the Rebels are cheering.
Raven Queen: [Raises her voice.] I'm sorry Apple, but I...ugh. Hold EVERYTHING! [She casts a freezing spell over the entire audience.] Oh...I didn't know I could do that! [She stares at her hands in horror and unfreezes Apple.] I'm sorry Apple, but I don't want anyone to tell me who to be. I wanna figure that out on my own. And don't you understand? I'm not the only one who gets to choose their own destiny now. [Brightly.] We all do! Even you.
Apple White: But, I don't want to choose a new destiny. I liked the one I had. And because of you, [Points to Raven.] it might not happen.
Raven Queen: [Optimistically.] But it might.
Apple White: [Sniffling.] I don't know. [She hides her face in her hands and walks away.] I...I just don't know.
Raven shakes her head but finds that the Rebels are supportive of her choice. She unfreezes Madeline.
Madeline Hatter: Wow! [Comically falls down.] You're still here. No poof, poof, POOF! Yay!
Raven Queen: I know, it feels good! [She lets out a sigh of relief.]
Male narrator: [Apple is running into the school building, still upset.] Life between the Royals and the Rebels at Ever After High would never be the same after Raven stood up for what she believed.
Female narrator: What she believed was wrong! She didn't honor her destiny, she tempted fate!
Madeline Hatter: [She shouts and waves her fist at the narrators.] Listen, Narrators! We are trying to have a nice moment here! [She and Raven giggle together.]


In the Headmaster's office, Milton is staring outside the window.
Milton Grimm:

Raven does not know the forces she has released. This must be contained before her dangerous idea spreads!

Mirror: [Ominous laughter.]
