Hi everyone, I have been wanting to do some fan fiction for my favourite Minecraft YouTube, Ivory, for a while, so here it is, and enjoy!

When I left the world, I thought it was done. I defeated Sven and Pumpkin, ended a decade-long feud. All because of an accident. An accident that led me to be trapped in nine separate prisons, one of which was my own mind. But that is done now. I have a new identity, a new life. Nothing can ruin this for me.

Today is a nice day, I think I might head into town. I might be able to find some work too, after all, I have to find a job eventually-.... what was that? I run outside, and catch a glimpse of something black disappearing into the wheat fields that surround my home. Strange... it was probably just a bat from an old cave. Besides, no one knows of my past here. Well, nearly no one. I walk into town, and see them standing by the library. Jodie walks over to me, and punches me on the arm playfully. "Ivory, where have you been?" they say conversationally, as we head over to the cafe. "I know you wanted some time to sort things out, but this is bonkers!". Jodie and I go way back, even before the Gladiators Pit. We met as creed trainees, and we began to hang out a lot after I dealt with Pumpkin. Jodie likes to goof around a lot and crack jokes, even after all we've been through. They're one of the few escapees from the old world, so we reminisce sometimes, but not often. They are my main contact in the town, and helps make sure no one figures anything out. Normally we chat about town, or our brief time in the creed, but today I tell them about the dream, the one I have been having for weeks. "It starts where I'm in this dark street, near the town where Mush used to live. I then realised I was wearing my old clothes, complete with mask, and I feel like I'm being watched. I look up, and I see this thing under a streetlight, but when I try to get a closer look, I wake up. And that's it." Jodie looks at me with a questioning look, and says, "Maybe there is something you're missing. Is there anyone you know that likes streetlights?" Jodie jokes, their face glimmering with mirth. They lead back in the chair, and fiddle with their orange hoodie before saying, "It's probably fine, most dreams make no sense." Before they can continue, I lean in and whisper, "I think it might have something to do with Melon." Instantly, Jodie is dead serious, their face stormy. "You know, I did hear something about a creature destroying Panda's pumpkin patch. She surrounded the place with berry bushes, but it came back and burned the lot down. Get your netherite gear handy, just in case." Jodie whispers. A waiter passes by, and in an instant Jodie is lighthearted again, our heavy conversation evaporating in the air. Jodie gets out of their chair, and says, "Well, nice seeing you around Ivory! I gotta run, the theatre opens in ten minutes. See ya!". I push in my chair, and give the owner two diamonds at the counter to pay for our food. I take one last look at the town, and start the walk home.

I mull over what we talked about as I hike through the oak forest surrounding my house. What if it really is Melon, the alternate self Pumpkin had created? What if it had all of Pumpkin's, memories, all of their knowledge? In a matter of minutes, I reach my house, a pretty little place surrounded by wheat fields. When I first found the place there were still some occupants, but they were unarmed, and it's free real estate. I open the front door, but have barely stepped inside when I see it. A carved pumpkin, lying on the ground beside the furnace. A message. A warning. I pick it up and inspect it more closely, to find it is simply a carved pumpkin. I run to the forest, and find a small pool of lava, where I throw the pumpkin head in with all my might. The sun has set by the time I reach my house, where I lie down in bed, waiting for the dream to come, as I drift into sleep.

I feel my old clothes, the mask on my face. I see the old town hall, the weathered cobblestones showing years of use. But most of all, I see the bench, and the streetlight beside it. I see the barest outlines of the creature, but this time I don't try to look closer. "Who are you?! What do you want?!" I yell, trying desperately not to glance at it's face. The being steps forward, and sneers, "You know what I want, Mythrodak." I jolt awake, panting, thunder and rain making a desperate attempt to destroy the crops outside. I get out of bed and go to the window, thinking about the dream, about Pumpkin, about things I have been trying to forget for a long, long time. It worries me deeply that it used my old name, my dead name. I dig my old netherite armour out of my ender chest, and sit by the window, unable to fall asleep again after the dream. The front door opens with a bang, and before I can reach for my axe, Jodie sprints through the door and dives under the table, and I hear an explosion in the distance. Their clothes are singed, despite the heavy rain outside. They pant and say, "Someone knows, Ivory! I don't know what happened, but when I got to my house, my cats were gone and there was TNT under the floorboards and it went off! You need to run, before it gets you!" I hear the hiss before they do, and I yank at their sleeve and run out the door, as the last piece of TNT is dropped down the fireplace, exploding with a resounding boom.

We run and run, not caring in the slightest about the rain, because we know it will be our only hope to escape alive. More TNT explodes around us, destroying the wheat fields around the ruins of my home. As we run to the town, I catch a glimpse of the remains of Jodie's house, still smouldering from the fire. The sight feels awfully familiar, and as we run through the rain, I fall into a flashback.
I run out of the nether portal, and start bounding down the outer steps of the prison, counting down the minutes until the guards will realise I'm gone. Once I'm in the woods, I run in a straight line from Glacier's Orb, not caring how obvious my path was. I think about seeing my bird Shiratori again, but pull to a stop. The cabin was on fire, and some smoke still rises through the ruins. I see Shiratori perching on a log, and she flies on to my shoulder as I look at the building's remains. As I begin to look around, I realise two things. That they knew this was going to happen, and that this is far from over.
Jodie grabs my hand, and I snap out of it. The town square is eerily quiet, even the thunder was silent. The only thing out of place is a large streetlight, in the centre of the square."So, you come at last." Melon says, stepping out from underneath the lamppost. "Now, I must do what my preceder should have done long ago. Goodbye, Mythrodak." Melon throws an axe with such force it is wedged in between the cobblestones. I pull out my netherite axe, enchantments glowing with full force. "My name is Ivory!" I yell, and run towards Melon, ready to end this once and for all.

The fight goes on for hours, each of us dealing heavy blows, with Jodie pitching in where they can. The sun begins to rise, and there is still no end in sight to the battle. I drive my axe to Melon's chest plate, hoping to break it. A large chunk is ripped off, and from a single pocket falls one thing. A feather. One that belonged to Shiratori. I am furious at Melon, at Pumpkin, at Sven, at everyone that led to this moment. I scoop up the feather and run to the back of the town hall, where a lava pool has been turned into a waste removal system. Melon and I continue to fight, balancing on the walkway over the lava. Melon loses their balance for a tiny second, but that is all I need. With all my might, I push Melon over the side, and they fall into the lava pool, never to resurface.

I walk around to the square, where the lightning from the storm had set the lamppost on fire. Jodie and I watch it burn down, the flickering flames disappearing on the wet cobblestones. I never will be truly able to escape my past, I know that now. What I can do is work towards a new future, where I can write a new past for myself.

  • I am aware that at a few points in the story, I used Ivory's deadname. This was to be part of the story and not used to insult, and I fully respect Ivory as a woman. You can see her coming out video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvRcLdZMKMI
