Story Fourteen - Ended March 2nd
Garon was bored so he approached the Faerie Queen, challenging her
to provide him with an adventure that he could not complete. The Faerie Queen accepted the challenged and
gathered the smartest Faeries. Garon was immediately transported to the central chamber of the maze where
he found six teleporters, which would take him to different levels of the maze. He realised that he made
a mistake but couldn't go back because that would upset the Faerie Queen very much...

...he looked around, eyeing the teleporters. "One of these has to get me out of here," he thought.
Walking slowly to the glowing green one, he put a small paw on carefully. WHOOSH!
Rainbow colors swirled around his head, and he realized he was floating and zooming through the teleporter!
As fast as he had started though, he landed in a green, grassy land with a thump. He shook his head
to clear away the last remaining rainbow colors. "Who are you?" a sweet voice asked. He turned around
to see a cute little Nymph sitting on a rock behind him. Her little wings fluttered as clear as ice.
"Well," she repeated, "What's your name? Can't you speak, wolf?" Garon straightened up proudly.
"I'm no wolf! I'm a Lupe, one of the strongest and proudest Neopets ever! My name is Garon."
The little faerie nodded sweetly. "You're a long way from home, Garon, and as a Nymph, I'm obligated
to help those in need. So I will tell you this: You are in the Earth Faerie's realm, and she enjoys
nothing better than a puzzle. I'll give you this to start you on your way." She handed Garon a
golden key, small enough to fit in her palm. "Good luck!" she cried as she flew away, "You'll need it!"...
Date : 26th Feb
..."Lupes never depend on luck, you have to have strategy like Princess Lilac," thought Garon to himself
as he wandered along the winding maze. Suddenly the road ahead went dark, he looked up, and there in
front of him was a tumbling forest of twisted vines, shady leaves as big as Garon, tall trees that
reached into oblivion and thick undergrowth that swished as distant creatures moved through it. Everywhere
there were flowers, like explosions of colour speckled over the leaf cover, big and bright and vibrant.
The scent wafted towards the overawed Lupe and it smelt like everything sweet and wonderful, ice cream
and chocolate, toffee and marzipan and so much more. It drew him in. Garon hesitated a moment at the
forest's edge and sniffed cautiously at the some of the vegetation before bounding in like a great puppy.
He was less than five minutes in before he heard a tinkling sound like a thousand little bells, and before
him he saw a great tree. It was very old, as old as the forest itself, and its trunk was bound with ridges
and clefts. Something on the tree was glowing, at first Garon thought it had been carved in by someone or
something, but no, as he looked closer he saw that the tree had grown like that, the contours of its trunk
swirling around a pattern. A pattern, growing with green light from every single one of its naturally formed
cracks. And below the pattern was a hole, a lock maybe, in which a tiny key might fit...
Date : 27th Feb
...Never one to make a hasty decision, Garon pondered this "lock" he had just stumbled upon. Carefully
considering what his options would be, the best approach, in his opinion was to think. Unfortunately there didn't seem
to be much time to think. The sky overhead was quickly becoming dark as the sun vanished behind massive
cloud cover. Throwing caution to the wind, Garon leaned in close to the tiny lock. As thunder crashed
above and lightning flashed angrily, Garon slid the key into the lock. The glowing green light from the
patterned tree expanded until it consumed everything within Garon's line of sight. Suddenly feeling strange,
Garon began to panic. The panic quickly became sheer terror as the Lupe realized that he was shrinking...
becoming small enough to be sucked into that tiny, little hole beneath him...
Date : 27th Feb
...Garon slipped into the dark hole and found himself falling at a rapid pace. It was dark all around. Garon couldn't
see anything. He didn't know what was going on. He was terrified. His heart was beating so fast and so loud. Garon
soon realised he was on a slide. This calmed him down a little, but he was still terrified. He didn't know what was
at the end of of this slide, or when it was going to end. THUMP! Garon found himself at the bottom
of a slide. It was pitch black, but when he looked up he felt a tingling sensation of excitement as there was a
dim light up ahead...
Date : 28th Feb
...Garon paused and bit his lip. He was unsure where this light would lead him, but he continued on anyway. Garon
got to the light, and realized it was another teleporter, and it was glowing a dim yellow. Garon figured that if
the green teleporter lead him to the Earth Faerie's level, then the yellow one would lead him to the Light Faerie's
level. Garon also figured that each level would progress in difficulty. Garon sighed, having more second thoughts
on challenging the Faerie Queen. He put his paw onto the teleporter, and the lights went psychedelic. When the
rainbows cleared, Garon was in a room where everything was a pale yellow. There was a fireplace with no fire, a
fluffy chair, a dresser, and no doors or windows. Garon was trapped...
Date : 28th Feb
..."Hello there young Garon," said a voice behind the the fluffy chair. "I have been expecting you," continued the voice.
Then as Garon approached the chair, a Light Faerie appeared! "How did you know my name?" Garon asked. "I have been
following you on your whole quest. I have the directions of the only way back to Neopia. I will give them to you if you
can defeat my personal pet in a Battle." "Well" said Garon shuddering, "I guess so. Where is he??" Slowly the walls of
the room floated into mid air and vanished and he found himself in the Space Battledome! Then a bright light came from
one corner of the arena and blinded Garon for a second. Then, as his sight came back, a giant Kau came charging at him...
Date : 1st March
...The Kau was electric blue, showing the Light Faerie's devotion for her pet. It was the size of a rather large
Skeith and had wicked yellowish horns that curled dementedly up like the teeth of some fierce beast, the likes
of which had only been seen in the Spooky Woods. Instead of the smile that most Kaus normally wore, this ferocious
monster sported a very menacing grimace. Garon swallowed fearfully but made ready to do battle with the swiftly
approaching monstrosity. Using the renowned ability, Haste, he dodged the Kau's charge. It turned and stopped,
pawing the ground. Growing braver now that his opponent was no longer charging him, Garon fired his Rainbow Gun. The
Kau immediately threw up his Metal Blocking Shield, and the blast went harmlessly to the side. An Exploding Snowball
was thrown at Garon, who dodged it, but not quite as the offending projectile hit his tail, turning it a very nasty
sooty black color. The Kau, seeing the damage his last volley had caused, prepared itself for what seemed to be the
final attack on Garon. It used Haste to propel itself in a final charge on Garon. By this time, Garon was angry and
hurting. He saw the rapidly approaching bovine and snatched up the first thing that came to his paw, a Poison Snowball.
Desperately, he lobbed it at the Kau, waiting for anything that would save him... Garon opened his eyes in amazement at
what he saw. The Kau was standing in the middle of the ring, wobbling wildly. The Kau had been poisoned by the snowball!
With a cry, Garon leaped into the air to finish the battle but was stopped by the Light Faerie as she flew into the arena,
"Stop!" she cried, "You win! Just don't hurt my precious Liandren anymore!" Garon was moved by the Faerie's plea and
nodded his consent. With a wave of the Light Faerie's wand, Liandren was restored to his former healthy self. "Thanks,"
he said to Garon as the Light Faerie smiled gratefully at the Lupe, waving her wand once more. "Don't mention it," Garon
tried to say something but stopped as the scene of the Faerie and her Kau vanished before his very eyes. In its place
was... Could it be? Neopia!!! At last he had come home! Suddenly he heard a sinister voice behind him, "Not so fast!"
bellowed a dark and forbidding shape...
Date : 1st March
...Garon turned around to see a large figure, no...wait, it was a giant figure and it said, "You have nearly completed
your quest but not so fast. Allow me introduce myself...I am Sahha, Lord of all Eyries. If you look ahead you will see
a teleporter that will probably lead to the end of your adventure, however you have to get past me first!" Sahha jumped
at him with his talons raised, Garon moved but he suffered some large scratches on across his chest. Sahha was about to
strike again but Garon had an idea. Garon ran in front of the Wall of Shame and shouted, "Come and get me you winged
Neodisgrace!!!" Sahha, in rage flew towards Garon but Garon jumped out of the way and Sahha slammed right into the wall.
BANG!!! "I best be going now," said Garon and he ran to the teleporter...
Date : 2nd March
...And for some reason it wouldn't work. He wondered why as he pushed all the buttons. Then Garon thought and said to himself,
"Wait a minute. I told the Faerie Queen to give me an adventure that I would not complete. Oh man, great...Good one, Garon. Good
one." All of a sudden, the roof of the maze had been lifted and the Faerie Queen appereared from high above. She was huge and
standing above Garon. She picked him up like a small little toy and placed him in her palm. She had been controlling Garon every
move in her dollhouse-like maze. She replied, "Well, Garon, I thought you wanted a challenge...a challenge that you would not
complete. Did I not grant your wish?" "I did, your Highness, and you granted my wish...but...but may I have one more wish, please?"
She thought for a second and looked at Garon, who was giving her puppy dog eyes. "Well, just this time, Garon," said the Faerie
Queen. "But next time, be careful what you ask for because it just might come true." So she zapped him right back to his bed and he
quietly thought to himself, "I'm sure that I will be able to do the next quest I ask for. I just wasn't ready for this one."
