    Ice King's Temple ~ Prolouge

    ((Hai! It's HatchetBlade, and I'm back! It's a new fanfic, this time a Supermagical and Adventure Time crossover!)) <p>
    Clumsiness watched as Elufie destroyed the back-most Minix with the power of her Special Soda and, in turn, defeated that round of Minix altogether. Chococoins flew towards the two and they successfully caught them. <br>
    "I wonder when the Warlocks will be home," Clumsiness said to herself as she put the Chococoins in her backpack. Elufie and Narcissus started to drag her along until she regained her feet and started running again, her cape fluttering behind her. <p>
    She tripped over two wandering Minix. "Well, they don't call me Clumsiness for nothing," she said and shrugged it off. Minix were always getting in the way anyways, if they weren't busy blowing her, Narcissus, Elufie, and the warlocks up. Or escaping from the Underworld with the help of Clumsiness's evil sisters. <p>
    But these weren't Minix.
