    Coffe Stained Napkin

  • Audrey considered Jane and Lonnie her two best friends.
  • Mal does not understand how Jane and Lonnie could ever be Audrey's friends and gushes about how she thinks Jane is the sweetest thing and Lonnie is so cool.
  • Audrey hopes that when Ben and her become King and Queen they can improve Auradon by doing meet and greets, allowing the citizens to tell the concerns so they can do their best to fix it.
  • Audrey does not like the idea of the VKs coming to Auradon Prep. Mostly just Mal because of Mal's mother being Maleficent and the family history they have.

Descendants[]

  • She mentions that Belle and Beast are upset with the proclamation and how 20 years of working to unite all of Auradon seems to undo everything they did.
  • Despite her dislike of the idea, Audrey got a cheering squad together and told Ben "If he truly believes this is what needs to be done, then he should go with his gut. Follow his heart and all that good stuff."
  • Mal comments that the best things to happen to Auradon Prep were the VKs, specifically the Isle style, fun, and "bye-bye perfect princes and princesses." Stating that it seemed like "everyone was terrified about making any mistakes or saying the wrong thing."
Planning Something

A page in Audrey's Diary; Written by Mal.

  • Audrey writes about how different Ben's parent's story was vs her parents, how its given them different viewpoints on villains and people changing. She also writes about how she doesn't feel totally safe at school anymore and worries for her family. She notes that she knows Mal must be plotting something.
  • Audrey worries about Mal's use of magic, saying it is breaking Auradon Prep rules and its gateway magic. Ben doesn't agree with her saying its fun. Audrey tries to explain to Ben that while now it may just be hair it could end up as something else in the future.
  • She writes about how mortified she was when Ben proclaimed his love for Mal at the tourney game. She comments on how much it hurts that he did it in front of everyone, that they were still dating at the time and is upset that he didn't think about how it would make her look or feel when she found out all this information for the first time.
  • Audrey explains that she ran to Chad to not let people think she was just "Ben's pity date." to the coronation.
  • She writes an entry explaining that while hanging out with Chad she was having to pretend she didn't care that her and Ben were on the outs and she was "falling apart inside." how she "cried more in the last few hours than she had in years." she wonders why she didn't at least deserve an explanation before telling everyone they were broken up.
    Audrey's Diary w-comments by Mal

    Comments made in Audrey's diary by herself and then Mal about Audrey's heartbreak over Ben.

    Mal comments that she never really "thought about Audrey as a person with feelings." How she assumed Audrey was just with Ben for his title. She also notes that if she had been in that situation she would have cried too.
  • Another diary entry is Audrey's hurt and betrayal that Lonnie was up in the stands dancing and laughing with Mal and Evie while Ben "broadcasted to Auradon Prep that he'd dumped me."
  • In a diary entry after the Family Day event, Audrey notes that she thinks Mal has been using the spell book and has spelled Ben.
  • Mal and Evie comment on this topic. Mal defending herself and trying to explain that she tried to apologize, while Evie explained why she had sprayed Chad.
  • Audrey is relieved that the others now see that the VKs are villains instead of just the kids of the villains. She again mentions that she can't prove Mal has spelled Ben and brainwashed him, but she can do her best to make sure they stay way from the rest of her friends.
  • On the morning of the Coronation she writes another entry mentioning her mother and trying to make herself feel better. Despite that shes still sad and heartbroken about the breakup.
  • After the Coronation, Audrey provides and update stating that she was not even slightly surprised by what happened and that "okay, maybe Mal changed her mind halfway through the plan, but that doesn't mean she didn't plan it. It's like, am I supposed to be impressed that she suddenly grew a conscience??" She does note that she is relieved that it was okay and that Mal did the right thing, but she still thinks its twisted that they are getting hailed heroes for suddenly doing the right thing. She again mentions wondering if its some "remaining love spell residue" that makes it so Ben isn't thinking straight.

Between D1 & D2[]

  • Audrey is very angry that everyone seems to have just forgiven the VKs, specifically Mal, so fast. They call Mal cool and a hero and she doesn't understand why since Mal was the reason that Maleficent was even there. She notes that she was taught to always be good, tell the truth, don't steal or cheat and follow the rules but Mal seems to be getting away with breaking all of that.
  • She notes that Mal uses magic despite it being illegal, that Mal used a love spell on Ben and made a fool of her all while plotting to take down the kingdom. She is now starting to believe that fairy tales don't come true and that good doesn't always win.
  • Mal admits she made mistakes and went about it the wrong way and that she really did fall in love with Ben during this time. She wonders why that doesn't count for something. Uma tries to comfort Mal.
  • 36 days after the tourney Audrey notes that it really hurts to see Jane going over some event with Mal, and that its a reminder that her and Ben are over.
  • Audrey writes that Chad has been a good friend to her lately and reminisces on her memories with Ben.
    • How they dressed up as Aurora and beast on Ancestry day.
    • How they won the 3-legged race at last years Auradon games. How they ran so fast that they Ben fell over and they fell down laughing in the grass and laughed until they were crying.
    • Memories on the two of them riding horses in Sherwood forest. Having a picnic and chatting all the while.
  • She notes that she has to stop thinking of that because "If Ben wants to be with Mal, then he's definitely not the guy for me and I'm hoping at some point soon I'll really believe it."
  • Chad and Audrey go to Belle's Harbor after school and Chad thought the trip would cheer her up. Chad told her a story about the Summerlands and him water-skiing on one leg. It was apparently charming enough that for a moment she forgot about everything that had happened. The two then walked on the shore and were chatting when she saw Ben and Mal on the dock snuggling. Chad steered her way and started telling her another story about Jaq trying to move a huge wheel of cheese.
  • Audrey, still heartbroken, mentions how she always goes to an annual spa retreat with Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, then meets her mom in the fairy cottage to spend a few days together. She decides shes going to ask to stay for a while, since shes ahead in all of her classes.
  • There are a couple entries about her time with her Fairy Godmothers and enjoying time with them.

  • There is an entry about how Audrey is shocked that everyone seems to love the VKs.

  • She is disappointed in Lonnie and Jane stating that she feels like she was replaced with Mal. She feels like any time spent with the VKs is a complete betrayal because it makes her friendship feel like it meant nothing to them.
  • Evie comments on this section saying she talked to Jane about this. That Jane felt like Audrey took their friendship for granted. Jane would check in with Audrey ect but Audrey wouldn't do the same in return. Jane felt that Audrey was always trying to get her to say mean things when they first arrived, but she felt a lot of pressure to fit in.
  • Audrey is angry in one entry stating she didn't think she would ever get used to VKs being "in MY city at MY school."

    • Audrey explains that there had always been the expectation for them to get married, that her parents always wanted her to become queen. "They've always known that our marrying would bring more attention to South Riding and Auroria. If we wed, our two families would form an unbreakable alliance."
  • There are a couple pages of doodles, of crows, swirls and then a map of the museum layout. With the room "Crowns of Auradon" circled and starred.

  • Audrey talks about playing with the magic the scepter gave her. About how she's taken over the school. She talks about spelling the armor to fight them.
    • Mal chimes in saying that Audrey can't rewrite history that they know what happened. She talks to Uma through the page about leading the crews together. She wonders what could have been if they had worked together on the isle
    • Evie chimes in saying that the progress is good and wanting the two to talk more. Uma replies with thinking what Evie is saying is silly, but that what happened was cool. Evie replies once more that "Its easy to be a queen among paupers, but it's hard to be a queen among queens. We're all queens here. We just need to figure out how to support one another."
Cursing Ben

A page about cursing Ben to be a beast.

  • Audrey writes about how she feels like Ben walks the halls thinking he did nothing wrong to her. She talks about his weaknesses, insecurities ect and goes on to write "I'm afraid everyone will think I'm like my father -- how he was before.

That she didn't want to shatter her dreams but she had to because every time they opened the barrier something bad happened to Auradon. She realizes she should have told everyone the truth.
  • She continues on saying that seeing Evie as a stone statue, her face still "had that horrible disappointing expression on her face, like I'd wronged her in the worst way."
  • Mal comments that with her and Uma working together they defeated Audrey, that Hades' ember took all the energy and turned it back on her.

And she hopes that one day things can be different.
