"Croak Dream"
"Cake & Kittens"


To satisfy a sick Cake, Fionna goes through the woods to find a real-life story filled with romance, fighting, suspense, and drama to tell her.


Cake has fallen ill in her bed and calls Fionna to help her out. Fionna tries pulling the blanket over Cake, but Cake kicks it away, saying it's too hot. Then Fionna whips up some soup, but Cake ends up vomiting it into Fionna's face. Finally, Cake asks Fionna to tell her a story, but since she's heard all of Fionna's tales before, she tells Fionna to tell a new one. However, Cake doesn't want a made-up story and needs a real one. So, Fionna goes outside to find a new story and spots the Snail floating on a falling leaf. When she returns to tell Cake the story, Cake is sadly disappointed by it. She gives Finn a list of things that her story must include, namely, romance, fighting, suspense, and a happy ending.

In order to create a real story, Fionna wanders through the forest looking for "romance" and bothering a lot of critters. She makes Boobafina and Mr. Fox kiss, which upsets both of them. She starts a fight with a Teenage Bear, but its Momma Bear tries to intervene, then starts crying when Fionna punches her son in the face, making her think he is dead. For suspense, Fionna menaces a nest of Birds with a rock, but has an attack of conscience, torn between wanting to help Cake and not wanting to mess with folks. Then the animals of the forest attack Fionna pinning her down, and Fionna says "this is really suspenseful" just before the Forest Wizard clubs her in the head. Fionna wakes up to find out that the wizard has locked her in a cage for her "crimes" against the forest creatures. Just before she's lowered into a magical pit to become one with the soil, Fionna finishes Cake's story with a happy ending by offering heartfelt advice to the forest creatures, making everything better. For making their lives better, the Forest Wizard releases Fionna. She returns to the Tree Fort and Cake miraculously recovers after hearing Fionna's story. As Cake dances the health dance, Fionna comes down with Cake's sickness. Cake prepares to tell Fionna an awesome story, but Fionna immediately falls asleep.
