It was one warm night when the Dark Faerie thought of
this evil plan to take over the day. You see, the Dark Faerie was in control
of the night, and the Light Faerie was in control of the day. But the
Dark Faerie's plan was to take over the day also! She was sitting in her
dark purple castle which was behind the Faerie city. The night was about
32 degrees Celsius(91F). She was in rule of Faerie land until the sun
came up, which meant that the Light Faerie would take over in rule until
the sun went to bed. "I LOVE being in control, but all the good things
happen in the day time!" She thought to herself as she sat on her front
porch. "I want to rule the day!"
As the sun started to come up, she went to visit the
Light Faerie "Hello wonderful Light Faerie!" She said as she shook the
Light Faerie's hand. "How about we make a compromise?"
"What sort of compromise are you thinking of, Dark Faerie?
Should we bring in the other 4 Faeries for a meeting?"
"Oh, no! This is between you and me. I think I should
be able to be in control of the day."
"But that is my time to be in control, you CAN NOT have
the day, you will probably turn it into night also! Then when would it
be light outside?"
"You don't understand, if it is dark ALL THE TIME, then
you will stand out more! Because you will be the only light!"
The Earth Faerie walked in. She was wearing her traditional
green dress, and she walked ever so gracefully. "I heard you two arguing,
what is it about this time?" She was right, they had been arguing for
many years. The Dark Faerie and the Light Faerie were complete enemies!
Why? Because they are complete opposites! One is light and one is dark,
what else do they need to argue about?
"The Dark Faerie wants to take over the day as well as
the night! She wants to make it dark all the time!" The Light Faerie yelled
this so loud that the Air Faerie flew in through the open window.
"WHAT IS GOING ON? I'm trying to have a flying class
outside here, and you are disturbing it!" The Air Faerie has a very large
temper problem. "These baby Scorchios won't be able to fly if they can't
hear my instructions! I've had 2 fall to the ground already, and we are
only 2 minutes into class!"
"The Dark Faerie wants to make it so it's dark all the
time, even at day! How am I going to make food grow if it is dark all
the time?" The Earth Faerie complained.
"Does this mean we are going to have a Faerie meeting?
Do I have to cancel my class? For the fourth week IN A ROW?" The Air Faerie
looked like she was going to blow, her face turned bright red, and her
hair was standing on it's ends.
"Yes, I think we should have a meeting in 5 minutes.
Air Faerie, could you go and get the Water Faerie and the Fire Faerie
too?" The Light Faerie was a little scared to ask, but it would be the
easiest for the Air Faerie to get them, since she knew how to swim and
she could withstand hot places.
"Of course! Why don't I go and get all of Neopia too!"
The Air Faerie said as she stormed out the window. All the Faeries looked
at each other and shrugged their shoulders, and headed to the meeting
This room was most beautifully designed. Each Faerie
had a chair with decorations that they designed. The room was shaped like
a hexagon, and each Faerie had one side. The Queen Faerie got a side too.
Her side was a beautiful light purple with diamonds jewels all over the
place. The Water Faerie's was decorated with sea pearls. And the Air Faerie's
was decorated with clouds, and it almost looked like heaven. The Light
Faerie's side was bright yellow with suns and moons and stars shining
all over it. While the Dark Faerie's side was decorated with black. The
Fire Faerie's side had flames climbing up the walls, and her chair was
heated at a VERY HOT temperature that only she could stand. The Earth
Faerie's side looked like a little jungle. There were little flowers and
trees and monkeys all over the place.
The Air Faerie entered with the Water Faerie and Fire
Faerie not far behind. All of the Faeries sat down in their places. The
Queen Faerie flew in with her guards so close to her you wouldn't know
they were 3 different bodies.
"All right! What's it about THIS TIME?" The Queen Faerie
"The Dark Faerie wants to take over the day! And I DISAGREE!"
The Light Faerie answered.
"Dark Faerie, you already have the night, why do you
want the day too?" The Fire Faerie asked.
"Because all the good stuff happens in the day! I don't
have any cool decisions to make because everyone is asleep when I'm in
"Well you don't get the day, and that's FINAL!" The Queen
Faerie said as she flew out the window with her guards close at hand.
All the Faeries left except the Dark Faerie who sat in
her chair thinking of a plan.
The next night came, and the Dark Faerie was thinking
again. "I know! I will make a big black blanket to cover all of Neopia!"
With a wave of her arms, there was a big black velvet blanket folded neatly
in a pile before her. She whistled and a bunch of Shoyrus came. "Put this
up in the sky of Neopia!" All 3,000 of them flew up and started covering
the sky with this gigantic cover.
When day came, there was no sun! There was no light!
The Light Faerie got out of her bed of beauty, and got her phone to call
the Queen Faerie
"She must have put a spell on Neopia, it's dark outside!
What are we going to do?" She desperately asked the Queen.
"She doesn't have that much power. I will fly up into
the sky to see what is going on. You call all the rest of the Faeries
and tell them to meet me in the meeting room!" With that the Light Faerie
hung up and told the rest of the Faeries to come to the meeting room.
They all were murmuring to each other as the Queen Faerie
walked in looking very angry. "Dark Faerie, please step forth and tell
the rest of the Faeries what you did."
The Dark Faerie stood up, and said, "I kind of like the
night! Nope, NEVER!"
The Queen Faerie then said, "She put a black blanket
up in the sky so we would think it was night, or so it would be night
"How did you find out?" The Dark Faerie asked.
"Those Shoyrus are so easy to get stuff out of. Ask them
anything, and they could go on for days with every little detail. As your
punishment there will be light in the night time. There will be stars
and one moon up at night, and so it will never be completely black!"
"But I..." All the Faerie giggled.
So you now know the story of Neopia, why there is stars
and a moon are up at night. The Dark Faerie will never have complete darkness
