Pretty Cure Safe⚓Harbor is ameliette's first Precure fanseries. It has a theme of elements, mostly water and ocean. It is slated for 24 episodes, a movie, and several omakes.
In the Land of Elements, the recently crowned King of Fire of Solaris has attacked Aquaria's castle, killing the king and the two princes. With her bodyguards brainwashed and hostile, Queen Meera sends her daughter Sara to the Land of Aether to recruit the legendary Pretty Cure warriors, in hopes they will find the Great White, destined to defeat the King of Fire.
Sara arrives on Earth and runs into a highschooler named Kestrel Prongs, who lives on a giant floating city called Lotuspad. Then the Embereds arrive, and the Pretty Cures must be found before the monsters destroy the remnants of the human society!

Queen Meera's former bodyguards, who were brainwashed by King of Fire. Each of them is a noblewoman hailing from a different nation: Shula is from Solaris, Tala from Terrarum, and Alya from Caelum. While they were in the Marine Castle, Shula was a swordswoman and the Queen's personal bodyguards, as well as in charge of the castle's inner security forces; Tala was an archer and in charge of the outer defences; and Alya was more of an spiritual advisor. After they were brainwashed, all three chose different strategies to deal with the Pretty Cure. Shula faces them head-on, Tala is more sneaky, and Alya often creates more complex magical traps.
Monsters of the Week. In default state they appear as black elastic spheres that expand and distort the environment when agitated. When thrown on an object, the sphere is absorbed into the object, which is then transformed into an ember-structured gold-limbed monster in the shape of the source item, with eyes in the color of the person who created them.

To transform, the girls tap S-O-S (three short taps, three long ones, thee short ones) on the clip and yell: “CureClip, Transmit!”
Land of Aether
Also known as Earth, this green and blue orb floating in space has endured some extreme violence in the last decade.
A giant city-ship floating on the Atlantic. It houses some 1,000,000 people, most of whom are evacuees from areas destroyed after the tsunami in 2021. The rest of the citizens are former students and administration, who simply migrated from the old temple in Helsinki once the Lotuspad was built. There are four smaller cities around the world, too. Each city has three towers of different heights around a circular lagoon, with forests covering the roofs of the towers.
- Infinitas Academica
The school which all the kids on Lotuspad go to. It covers years 1-12 and any additional years a student takes. It has a very general school uniform rule, the only required parts being a white button-up top and plaid gray bottom. This leads to a very varied look throughout the school, as every student wears their uniform as they please.
- Blanchett Treats & Drinks
A well-known all-purpose cafe owned by Alice's parents, famous for their sandwiches and cheesecakes. Alice and her brother Duane help there a lot in their spare time.
- Other cityships are East Lily, where Manami is from, Tiny Lily, where Tahira is from, the First Lily, which also sails the Atlantic, and a fourth unnamed one.
Land of Elements
Sara's home world, where people live in four nations: Aquaria, Solaris, Terrarum and Caelum. Each nation's court has noblemen and -women from other nations serving in various duties.
Marina Castle / Aquaria
Marina Castle is a large, airy fairytale castle made of sky-blue marble, making up almost the whole of the biggest island in Aquaria. It has large gardens around it, and sturdy walls around the gardens with defense towers. The gardens also have the training courts, and hide multiple secret passages, one of which connect the garden's lake to the sea. There's a harbor connected to the walls, so there's no need to go to the city to go sailing.
The kindom is set on islands nearby a large continent ruled by Terrarum, and the two nations have close ties.
Solaris' castle is a light and spacious, but twisted palace somewhere high in the mountains. The new king has decorated it with gold and red, and slowly started charring the palace, making it blacker as he goes around.
Once the new king rose to power, the other nation's citizens were abolished from Solaris' court, but the other nations didn't respond in kind, so it remains to be seen how the last two nations will react to Marine's fall.

This special is a crossover with Endeavour.
- Fancuries 2018: Nominated for Best Henshin Item
Behind the Scenes
- Lotuspad and the other cities are based on the Lilypad by Vincent Callebaut.
- PCSH is set in a crossover universe, and further info and very crossover-y character profiles will be found on ameliette's Dreamwidth at some point prior to the premiere.
- Due to authors rather shallow reference pool, most of the Finnish voices have worked on Avatar, Digimon or both.
- PCSH is one of the (hopefully) few fanseries where the monsters can cause collateral damage and purifying it does not fix the damage caused.
- In its earliest incarnation, PCSH was called "Noble♥Hearts" and had a sweets/7 virtues theme, with two extra Cures to fill the rainbow: Mackenzie Snyder and Anna Solberg. You can find more about them on deviantART.
