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.


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...
