Name: Cupid Valentine Frost
Hair Color: Whitish-Blue
Eye Color: Bluish-Purple
Family: One Brother
Weapons: A bow and a quiver. The bow can change into a staff and the quiver will disappear. When her dark side gets the best of her, she has claw blades on her right hand.
Facts: She is Cupid, the Guardian of Love. No one believes in her though, which is what makes her have doubts about being a Guardian. She is Jack's twin sister. Cupid and Jack's past are darker than you think. Jack doesn't remember much about his past, but unfortunately Cupid does. Her best friend is Tooth. In the story Jack calls her "Val" which is short for "Valentine." But he also calls her by her name. Though they are twins, Jack and Cupid can be both very similar, and different. Inside Cupid is a tomboy, though only Jack knows that. She is very shy and mysterious inside too, never revealing her secrets and past. But that would soon change. Cupid's worst fear is hemophobia, the fear of blood. She is a vegetarian, and she loves animals and kids. She is very protective of her friends. Though she is Cupid, she has never fallen in love, even though secretly she wants to. Secretly she's also a chocoholic, and most of her diet consists of chocolate.

Darkness. That was all I could see. I slowly floated up into an icy surface. Then a pale silver light appeared. I squinted and saw the moon shining brightly. Soon all the darkness and uneasy feelings disappeared.
"Your name is Cupid Valentine Frost."
I jumped as a soft voice in the wind whispered those words to me. I looked up at the moon. He had spoken to me.
"Cupid Valentine Frost?" I repeated dumbfounded. I needed to know more. For some reason I couldn't remember anything.
I slowly stood up, but I tripped and fell. I stood up again balancing myself, and walked a few steps.
I accidentally stepped on something. I looked at my feet and saw a bow and a quiver filled with arrows. I picked it up and examined it.
The bow was made of wood and at the end "C. V. F." was carved in it.
"Cupid Valentine Frost" I murmured again.
The quiver had silver arrows, and no matter how many arrows I took out it, seemed it never runs out. I slid the quiver on my back and held on to the bow.
I looked at the moon once more and asked, "Hello? Can you hear me?"
I decided that he didn't want to talk so I began to walk around. I was in a frozen lake filled with many tall trees.
I sighed and touched the tree. "Swoosh." As soon as my fingers touched the bark, a swirling pattern of frost appeared. I gasped in amazement. Soon I began to run around touching anything in sight.
I laughed hard and began to jump. But then a gust of cold air threw me into the air. For a moment my hearted skipped and I closed my eyes tight.
I opened my eyes slowly and I saw I was floating in the air. I could fly! Awesome! I let the wind carry me around and soon I landed in a village.
It was filled with people. Little kids were running around and playfully roughhousing with each other. A little girl approached me.
"Hey could you tell me-" I began, but the girl just went through me. I gasped and began to panic. Soon one thing was for sure: Nobody could see me. Then I turned to someone saying,
"Van is that you?"
I turned and saw a boy about my height with the same bluish hair and eyes, and the only thing different was that he was carrying a staff.
"Jack it's you!" I cried in shock. There standing in front of me was my twin brother Jack.
(One Year after Jack Became A Guardian)
I looked up and saw bright colored lights in the sky. North. Something was up. I grinned and said "Wind take me to North's place!"
I shot up into the sky and soon I was at the North Pole. I entered North's workshop and saw a whole room filled with toys, yetis, and elves. I strode in and soon I was greeted with a giant globe filled with tiny lights.
"I see you're late as usual mate" someone said.
I turned and saw Bunnymund. I also saw North, Tooth, and Sandy with him.
"Ah Jack you're here!"North cried.
"Jack long time no see!" Tooth grinned. "How are you and your teeth?" She began to come closer to my mouth, but I took a step back.
"I'm fine" I said.
"So why are we here again?" Bunnymund turned to North, "I'm very, very busy mate."
"It's only three months 'till Easter Bunny" North laughed, "But that's not important."
"N-Not important?! Mate if it was three months before Christmas you'd-" Bunnymund began
"Ok stop fighting" Tooth sighed, "North, why are we here exactly?"
It was good to see them together again.
"Well the Manny wanted to say something important" North said and looked up into the moon by the window.
"What is it old friend?" he asked.
There was a silence and then…
"What! Pitch is coming back? In one week!" North cried.
Everyone's faces filled with shock. Pitch was back.
"Oh no, this is bad!" Tooth wailed, "What are we supposed to do?"
"I think-" I began to say, but a ray of light shone from the moon and the moon's crystal rose from the floor.
"A new guardian?" North asked.
"Aw c'mon!" Bunny complained, "Isn't he enough?" gesturing to Jack.
"Just shut up and watch" Jack rolled his eyes.
The six surrounded the crystal and slowly an image appeared. Bunnymund closed his eyes and crossed his fingers whispering, "Not the Groundhog, please not the Groundhog…"
The image was formed by a pale red cloud of fog, and then the fog burst like a firework. It formed a heart shape and disappeared, revealing a statue of a girl.
"Who in the world is that!?" Bunnymund cried.
The statue was a girl with pale blue hair, and she was holding a bow. She wore brown clothing that was worn long ago.
"Finally another girl!" Tooth cheered, "And a pretty one too."
"But who is she?" North asked. Soon a small fight broke out, filled with confusion about who the girl was. But I knew who it was. I was just too stunned to move or speak. That girl was the closest person in my life, the one I cared for the most. It was my twin sister, Cupid.
"I know who she is." My voice cut through the air like a knife.
Everyone turned to me in shock.
"Who is she Jack?" North slowly said.
I sighed and looked up at the moon. "Are you sure?" I shook his head. I was excited and happy for her, because I hadn't seen her in a couple of days because Spring was coming, and she had many couples to match. She loved to travel, but I was also worried. Worried about what would happen if Pitch did something to corrupt her-
"He says yes, Jack" North interrupted his thoughts,
"Now who is she?"
"She's, she's…" I choked on the words. Then I grinned, "She's my sister, twin sister to be exact."
North's eye widened. Bunnymund looked like he was going to have a heart attack. Sandy clapped happily. And Tooth got so excited he thought she was going to explode.
"Twin sister!?" They all cried at once.
"Why didn't you tell us?" Tooth asked.
I just shrugged, "Never crossed my mind.
"You and Sandy should go get her" North began, but Bunnymund began to hyperventilate.
"Twin sister? I've had enough of that little Frostbite! And I don't need another one mate!" He wailed.
But North ignored him. "Go find her." He nodded towards me.
I drew my arrow ready to let go. In front of me was a shy pair, too shy though. I let my arrow fly, and it split in two piercing the man and woman's heart. It burst into a cloud and disappeared.
Their eyes widened, and they began chatting away. I flew down from the tree I was sitting down on and approached them in front of a cafe̓. I closed my eyes and concentrated. I opened them and saw two hearts glowing in front of me.
I grasp them from the man and woman's chest and ripped them in two. Then a needle and thread appeared beside me. Perfect. I took it in my hands and began to sew the two hearts different together. The new hearts glowed and disappeared. My job was done.
"Good luck on your relationship Martha and John" I smiled and waved away. But they didn't reply. They couldn't. That's because they can't see me. No one can.
I'm Cupid. Why can't anyone see me? Because they just don't believe in me, and for the people that do, it's the wrong person.
I am NOT an adult baby in a diaper. Where do these people get these ideas? But that doesn't matter. I've gotten used to it, though it would be great if I had someone to talk to. But good thing I still have my dear brother, Jack.
Yeah, my brother's Jack Frost, but I haven't seen him in a while since Spring is coming. Oh, how I love the Spring Fever and Easter! I still go Easter Egg Hunting, that's not weird is it?
But lately I'm getting this feeling about seeing Jack. I think it's just because of my "twin intuition."
Soon it was dark and I found myself walking down a dark alley way humming to myself.
Then suddenly cold hands clasp in my eyes.
"What the-" I gasp.
"Guess who it is?" a voice whispered playfully. I could recognize that voice anywhere. I spun around and saw Jack with who is that- oh! Jack was with the Sandman, I could just tell.
"Jack! I've missed you so much!" I cried, and I hugged him tightly.
"Who's your friend?" I asked releasing him.
"This is the Sandman" he smiles, "but call him Sandy."
"Nice to meet you Sandy," I smile and wave. Sandy smiled and an images of happy children appeared on top of his head.
"He doesn't talk." Jack explained.
I nodded and turned to him, "Jack why are you here?"
"Well we have some important news for you" he grins mischievously. I frowned.
"What are you tal-" I got cut off by being grabbed by furry hands and shoved in a bag. I heard something open and I was picked up and thrown into I think a portal.
"See if she is there" someone said, he had a thick Russian accent, "Good work Jack." I heard him say.
"Jack!" I shouted, "What in the name of Aphrodite is going on?" The bag was opened and I saw three elves smiling at me.
I slowly went out the bag and I saw an amazing sight. I just knew I was at the North Pole, in Santa's Workshop!
"You're here!" I turned as saw… Santa!
"Santa?" I managed to say.
"Welcome to the North Pole!" he laughed. "I hope the yetis treated you well."
"Yeah, being shoved in a sack and thrown through a magic portal is just fantastic." I said sarcastically.
"Good that was my idea." He grinned. "Let me introduce you to the others."
"Others?" I asked and that's when I noticed that there was a girl that looked part-hummingbird and a very tall…bunny rabbit? Holy love sprites, didn't Jack know I LOVE bunnies? I just have to get over the urge to pet him.
"I see you've met Sandy, and obviously Jack's your twin brother," Santa said, "Call me North. This is Tooth" he said and the half-hummingbird girl approached me and examined my teeth.
"Wha-" I tried to say. The Tooth Fairy was so interested in my teeth.
"Ooh! They're as white as Jack's!" she squealed. She took her fingers and out of my mouth. "I know we're going to be great friends!"
"Val" Jack called. I finally noticed him. "Your favorite animal is a rabbit right? And while you were traveling, hat place you fell in love with when you visited it, was it, oh I don't know, Australia?"
I made a face of confusion, "Yeah why?" I asked suspiciously.
"Then you're going to get along with Bunny! He's from Australia!" he cried and pushed the tall bunny rabbit close to me.
"I...uh…" I sputtered. He was putting me on the spot!
"Uh…" was all he could say. Then he cleared his throat and said, "G'Day Sheila my name is E. Aster Bunnymund. But call me Bunnymund or Bunny whichever you want." He shook my hand.
"I...uh...nice to meet you Bunnymund. My name's Cupid Valentine Frost." I blushed. Holy love sprites. Aphrodite help me.
"Ah! I see you and Bunnymund will get along well, no?" North smiled. He let go of my hand and we looked away in embarrassment.
Then I remembered. Why was I here?
"Why exactly am I here?" I turned to everyone getting serious. I mean, why would all of the Guardians be here at once?
"You are here because Man in Moon has chosen you to be Guardian!" North explained. Soon elves with trumpets came and North pulled out a big book.
"Wait," I said before he could say anything. "Are you sure he wants me?" North nodded.
"But…" North interrupted me before I could say anything else, and began to say this long speech. An oath I guess. I wasn't paying attention though. Questions filled my head.
Why did he choose me? Jack was always happy-go-lucky. But me? I had a past that was too terrible to talk about. I may be Cupid, but I just don't see myself as a Guardian. What is his reason?
"I do." I said returning back to reality.
"Congratulations! You are now Guardian like us. Guardian of Love!" North cheered. I smiled shyly.
"Well, well. You haven't changed a bit have you Cupid…" A voice came out of nowhere, sending a chill down my spine. I turned and saw a dark shadowy figure. I closed my left hand into a fist.
"Pitch" I hissed, "What in the world are you doing here?"
"Pitch, how dare ya, coming here and showing your ugly face!" Bunnymund spat.
Pitch ignored him and kept his eyes on me.
"How quaint, who knew that you were actually soft inside?" he smiled in an evil way.
As quick as a flash I took an arrow from my quiver and shot it straight to his heart. But what good would that do? It didn't affect him. I crossed my arms.
"He's fake." I shot Pitch a dirty look. "He's not real, he's just an image sent from where the real coward is hiding."
"You mean he's not the real Pitch?" Tooth asked.
"He's not the real one, but he has one weakness that would affect the real one" I told her, "And I know what it is. Poison."
"But you don't have any poison." The fake Pitch said.
"Stop stalling, what do you want?" Jack asked coldly, stepping closer.
The fake Pitch smiled. "I'm here to warn you. I'm getting stronger every day, and you should think twice before fighting me again." Then quickly he took the arrow that shot him and aimed it at Bunnymund. It turned black and dark, and then the fake Pitch released it.
Bunnymund couldn't move. He was trapped. Without thinking twice I screamed, "Bunnymund, NO!" and jumped in front of him.
The arrow pierced my chest. Luckily it missed my heart, but by an inch. I fell down to one knee. I blinked. My eyes turned from bluish-purple to red. Everyone looked at me.
"Cupid! Are you fine?" North voice filled with fear.
I felt Darkness spreading from my body. Oh no, I couldn't contain it any longer…
I smiled in an evil way, but my teeth were sharp and pointy. My expression darkened, and I began to howl. Yes, howl. Ears appeared from my head, and a long bushy tail grew. My clothes' fabric turned from cotton to fur rags. My hair turned black and my nails turned sharp like claws.
My bow and quiver disappeared and a new weapon appeared on my right hand. It was silver claw blades but at the tip they were filled with poison. Poison!
I growled and jumped in the air and I knocked the fake Pitch to the ground. I raised my hand and…
"Swipe!" I tore at the fake Pitch's chest.
"No!" those were the words that came out of his mouth.
"Cupid…" Tooth began. I spun around and stared at the stunned faces of my friends.
Bunnymund began to approach me.
"Be careful Bunny!" Jack warned.
"I know what I'm doing Frostbite!" Bunnymund rolled his eyes.
When he was about a foot next to me I tried to say,
"Don't come near me Bunnymund! It's too dangerous!"
But a low growl escaped my throat. I tried my best to stay myself and not let the Darkness win but-
My eyes widened. Bunnymund took my shoulders and embraced me in a hug. I slowly calmed down and hugged him back. I looked back at the others. You should've seen their faces.
Then my chest began to burn.
"Aaah!" I pulled away and touched my chest. My heart felt like it was going to explode. I fell to the ground.
My wolf ears and tail disappeared, and so did my fangs and claws. My eyes and hair color returned to normal. My clothes and weapons returned to me.
"Don't let him get away!" North warned as the fake Pitch began to slither away.
The others ran to attack the fake Pitch. But Bunnymund knelt next to me and held me in his arms.
"Bunnymund…" I whispered.
"It's going to be okay" he reassured and stroked by hair.
He was so furry and warm. And I was so dizzy.
"Why did you jump in front of me? That was dangerous!" Bunnymund shook his head.
For some reason I felt safe with him, and wanted.
"Bunnymund…I…" I wanted to tell him why but my eyes gave up on me. And I fell into a deep, deep sleep.
"…!" was all I heard before…
Before I lost consciousness I had two important questions in my head.
What was Pitch up to?
But most importunately,
Was I falling in love with Bunnymund?
