Neverland: The sequel
Summary: I recently saw the miniseries Never Land and I fell in love with it, however, some events that happen don't match up with what happens in Peter Pan, so I decided to rewrite Peter Pan, with my own spin, so that the storylines collaborate. If you haven't seen Never Land, some of what is in this story may not make sense to you.
(I do not own any of the Peter Pan/Never Land characters)
"Peter, where's your shadow!" Curly exclaimed. Peter looked down and gasped. His shadow was gone. He thought back to what had happened in London.
Peter flew through the air exuberantly. He couldn't wait to return to Never Land. There were no worries at all in Never Land. As he was flying past a window, he heard a girl speaking animatedly, so he stopped to listen. He peaked through the window and saw a girl about his age telling a story to two younger boys.
"Cinderella flew through the air far from all things ugly and ordinary. When she landed at the ball, she found herself most impertinently surrounded by pirates" The girl was saying. Peter was astonished. He had never heard this version of the fairy tale. The girl went on. "There was Alf Mason, so ugly his mother sold him for a bottle of Muscat. Bill Jukes, every inch of him tattooed. And worst of them all, Hook, with eyes blue as forget-me-nots, save when he clawed your belly with the iron hook he has instead of a right hand, at which time his eyes turn red" Peter was shell shocked. A pirate named Hook? Surely she wasn't talking about Jimmy, was she? Of course not! Jimmy didn't have a hook for a hand, he didn't have anything for a hand just yet. " 'Girlie,' said Hook, 'we have come for ye glass slippers.' 'Who be you to order me about
and call me girlie?'" The children started sword fighting with wooden swords. "Take that! Take that! Take that!" The girl continued her tale. "Hook came at her"
"What happened then?" The boy with glasses asked. The girl smiled.
"The brave Cinderella settled the matter once and for all with her revolver" Peter wanted to stay and listen when a dog jumped at him. He quickly flew away, not realizing that the dog had his shadow in her mouth.

"Drat" Peter exclaimed. "Now how am I supposed to get it back?"
"Is there any way that you could get into the cave again and use the portal?" Nibs asked. Peter thought for a moment, than shook his head. Suddenly, Tinkerbelle appeared.
"Peter, you can fly to London" She told him. "I know the way" Now, the lost boys had no idea what the tiny fairy was saying, but Peter grinned.
"Let's leave immediately" He said.
"Wait!" Curly said. "We need to find a hideout first" Peter nodded. The boys secured a hideout in a grove of trees. Aaya helped them turn it into decent living quarters. She eyed Peter up and down.
"If you're going to live here, you'll need something more practical than that" She said, pointing to the suit he had picked up in London. Peter nodded and donned native pants, much like what the other boys were wearing, but he didn't wear a shirt or shoes. Once he was ready, he flew out of the hideout and followed Tink.
It was late at night when Peter arrived at the Darling residence. All the children in the nursery were sleeping. Tinkerbelle helped Peter search and she finally found the shadow locked in a drawer. She pointed to the drawer and Peter opened it. Immediately, his shadow flew out and he flew after it. The drawer shut with Tinkerbelle inside. The tiny fairy sighed. It took Peter a few tries, before he was able to snatch it. He tried to stick the shadow back on, but nothing he tried worked. Finally, he slumped down by one of the beds and sighed. How was he ever going to get out of this mess?
Wendy thought she heard something and slowly sat up. Her eyes adjusted to the darkness and she noticed the boy by her bed.
"Hey?" She whispered quietly. Startled, Peter jumped up and floated towards the ceiling. Wendy gasped. "You can fly!" Peter landed on the railing on her bed.
"What is your name?" He asked.
"Wendy Moira Angela Darling" She replied. "And you?"
"Peter... Pan" He replied. Wendy cocked her head.
"Where do you live?" She asked quietly. Peter wasn't sure how to answer that. He remembered what Tink had said when they had flown here.
"Second to the right and then straight on till morning" He told her. Wendy raised an eyebrow.
"They put that on the letters?" She asked skeptically. He shrugged.
"Don't get any letters" He told her.
"But your mother gets letters" Wendy said, determined. Peter shook his head.
"I don't have a mother" He said quietly. Wendy was silent for a moment.
"What are you doing here?" She asked. So Peter explained to her about the shadow.
"I could sew it on for you" Wendy told him. Peter gulped. She walked over to the drawer and opened it. Tink, seizing her opportunity flew out and over to Peter. "Is she your fairy?" Wendy asked, grabbing a needle.
"Her name is Tinker Bell" Peter replied. "She says thank you" Wendy smiled and turned to face him, holding the needle and thread. "This may hurt a little" She began sewing the shadow on to his foot, as though it were the most natural thing in the world. Peter winced every so often. "Might I borrow your knife?" Wendy asked. Peter hesitated, than handed her his knife. She cut the thread and tied it. Peter stood up and cast his shadow on the wall.
"Thank you" He said. Wendy smiled.
"You're welcome" She replied.
"I don't hang out with too many girls" Peter said. "Just Aaya and of course The Lost Boys"
"Who are they?" Wendy asked.
"Aaya is a native American princess" Peter replied. "The lost boys and I used to live here in London, but we live in Never Land now"
"And there are no girls there?" Wendy enquired. Peter shrugged.
"Just Aaya and the other Native Americans" He replied. Wendy smiled.
"It sounds perfectly lovely" She said wistfully. "I wish I could go there" Tinker Bell said something and Peter smiled.
"Come with me" He said.
"I... I cannot fly" Wendy replied.
"It's okay. You don't have to" Peter told her. "There is another way to get to Never Land"
"Could John and Michael come too?" Wendy asked. Peter looked at the other two beds, sighed and then nodded. Wendy grinned and shook her brothers awake.
"I didn't do it" John said immediately, putting his glasses.
"There is a boy here who will take us to a magical land" Wendy said. John rolled his eyes.
"You offend reason, sir" He replied. Peter grinned and lifted off the ground. John's eyes widened and he jumped out of bed.
"I should like to offend it with you" He said. Peter grinned.
"There is a magic orb. Not far from here, that can take us to Never Land" He told them.
"How will we get out of the house without Aunt Millicent seeing us?" Michael asked.
"Easy" Peter said. "I can carry each of you off the balcony"
"Can I go first?" Michael asked. Peter nodded and grabbed Michael's hand and jumped. He returned and took John in the same way. He came back and Wendy was looking around the room. He held a hand out to her.
