The Wonders of Jelly World

by wizardofaus

RUMOURVILLE - I'm sure that many users have been pondering the secrets Neopets has been hiding; after all, they've been sneakily releasing two medieval games (Ultimate Bullseye and Shapeshifter) and two new medieval pets (the Draik and Ixi) in an attempt to fool die-hard Neopians into believing that the next world is medieval. The nerve! Of course, those who look at the Coming Soon page see that Jelly World is on its way, and take pains to insist on showing everyone this as proof of their inside knowledge. Bearing this in mind, I've decided to go ahead and hazard a guess at what wonders a Jelly World might bring, and where such a thing might be.

Firstly, for those who might be wondering, Jelly is the commonly used term for gelatin products (yes, those little copyrighted jiggling cubes of gelatin are - well, copyrighted, so Jelly has to be the accepted term in this case) amongst the British. The creators of Neopets are both British, and as such this is one of those rare culture clashes in spelling that crops up, in a manner similar to 'doughnuts instead of donuts' and 'colouring instead of coloring'.

A world made entirely of Jelly might sound implausible, but if you look at your NeoHome wall choices, you will note that Jelly is indeed one of them. Of course, building a house of Jelly is somewhat expensive - molding the wall panels, and giving the structure elasticity and stability, make this particular housing job tougher and more time-consuming than simply carving and shaping stone or wood to fit. The Construction Jelly used must be made with special ingredients to guarantee its durability - and inedibility - in order to ensure that a hungry Neopet won't literally eat you out of house and home. But, of course, if such a Jelly exists... then why not a whole world, built out of this Jelly?

I'm certain you may be wondering: "Does this mean that the Strawberry and Lime Jelly Pets sold in the chocolate shop are actually kidnapped citizens of Jelly World?" Take heart... note that the Jelly Chia, a Battledome opponent and likely resident of Jelly World, is blue in coloration, and is therefore very likely a Blueberry Jelly Chia. Of course, this brings up an interesting question... does that mean that the Blueberry Chia Pop might be the way to the legendary (after all, it's been so covered in secrecy it must be fantastic) realm of Jelly? Of course! All you need to do, I would think, is buy a Magical Blueberry Chia Pop, and a Strawberry Jelly Chia, combine the two in a cooking pot, and voila! Your own Jelly Chia! (Of course, anyone who actually manages to get a magical Blueberry Chia Pop and a Strawberry Jelly Chia and tests this theory should be advised that the original Jelly Chia panicked and ate his owner.) Still, could such a recipe become a method of making a Jelly Pet Morphing Potion? We'll have to wait until Jelly World is unveiled to find out.

At least one Jelly weapon already exists - the Jelly Muffin - and it is quite conceivable that this variation of the somewhat common Battle Muffin given away as a random result. There's also the Jelly Sword, Jelly Net, and Jelly Shield, which, of course, is only found in the possession of the Jelly Chia, who tends to use it to splatter Battledome combatants.

But where would a Jelly World be? There's no trace of maps for it, or even a directory to hold it in. The answer, of course, is that Maraqua's ruined wreck was in fact destroyed by the Jelly Chia, who then proceeded to work on building his own ideal world, entirely out of Jelly, to replace it... at which point, Chiazilla must have come for his offerings, found the wonderful Jelly World, and promptly ate it.

So there you have it. Perhaps Jelly World really was going to be where Maraqua had been... but Chiazilla must certainly have devoured it whole, thus explaining why no trace of it will ever be found on the Neopets site. Perhaps it has been recreated in a location so secret nobody will find it for years to come. Or perhaps, it never really existed at all...


The Wizard of Aus is happy to accept Neomail, but does not claim that there ever will be a Jelly Chia Pop, or that a Jelly World will really be likely to exist, although it would be rather funny.
