This is going to be a fanfiction on my crossover story, Amelia Stone, and the horror movies too. In this fanfic, headstrong and courageous 17-year old Serena wants to take on more than she can handle and try to step up her toughness. But when her dearest aunt Audrey starts questioning and doubting her bravery, Serena must prove to her that she is more than just her old lady's "sweet little niece" and not a wannabe gangster.
"So, you think you're tough, Serena?"
"You think you're hard?"
"You think you're all big and bad?"
"Well, let me tell you something, Serena. You're not!"
"Wait, what? Why?"
"Honey, you may think that you can bite off more than you can chew. But when get out and start traveling through other dimensions in the multiverse where the real danger begins, that's when you realize you're not what you think you are."
"What do you mean, Aunt Audrey?"
"I mean, you have elemental powers, yes. You have strength, yes. You are brave, yes. You can fight, yes. You always save the day, yes. You defeat the villains, yes. But are you tough enough, no. You are not tough. Why you ask? It's because you need to be a lot more than what you are to be hard and not just claiming things that you've done before to show you are ready."
"But, I am ready."
"No, you're not. This is a big scary world out here and you don't even know how many monsters or slashers or horror doll killers that are waiting to break your pretty little neck and possess your soul to take over your body."
"Yeah. But, I can---"
"Look, you can't just think that you're the second most strongest and powerful next to Amelia who can handle anything or anyone. It doesn't work like that. You aren't Kim Possible."
"This type of workout is a such a knockout
Especially for a badass like you
You're really intrepid
But kinda timid
Real action is something you wanna do
These horrors are not a game
They can be scary and rough
They're not something you think you can tame
You need to have the right stuff
If you wanna succeed,
Every fighter has to be tough enough
"Your dearest niece that you see is not the true me
It's just a picture in your mind
Of someone terrified
Of someone horrified
But I am not one of that kind
I am powerful and strong
And when I'm all rough and buff, you'll see you've got me all wrong
I'll prove I've got the right stuff
And then I'll break the water dam 'cause I know that I am tough enough
I'm tough enough"
"But dear, you need to be a lot than just a big and bad tuff"
"Well, you can question my courage all you like and say I'm just a passive little princess puff
But when I break a horror villain's hand,
you're gonna see that I am tough enough
I'm tough enough"
Are you tough enough?"
I am tough enough!"
"So, you think that you're tough enough, Serena?"
"Let's show these horror baddies who's boss around here."
