Quote of the Week


"That h'ain't the way h'it goes! Yew got ter sing the part h'about the fried Quiggle befores you go singin' out about the drownded Ogrin!"


Artifacts: Useful?



I'm sure everyone has made a trip to visit Fyora in the Hidden Tower at some point or another. Whether you're a Battledomer or just browsing her collection, the finest items in Neopia come at a hefty price (usually in the high thousands, low millions), which most Neopians can't afford. But are her items only for use against opponents in the Battledome, or do they have everyday purposes?

On the Cup: Dasher Soley



"Those lubbers thought they'd got us, wi' that huge lump of a forward who does nothin' but stand in front o' the goal an' rocket in th' shots. But if he don't get the Yooyu, he don't score nothin', so we played to stop th' Yooyu gettin' near 'im an' it worked. An' we've got good ol' Garven [Hale] in goal, so even when those flower-heads got th' Yooyu to him, Volgoth couldn't do anythin' with it..."

Petpetpets: Let's Not Be Hasty


Unfortunate side effects of petpetpet inhabitation can be whining, scratching and running around in circles; to allow petpets to endure this discomfort seems cruel. The solution to the petpetpet dilemma is therefore unclear. However, I do have a suggestion of several steps that can be taken to prevent the situation reaching a stage where the only solution is the purchase of the Slime Gun loaded up with a full round of gooey ammunition...

"The Right Kind of Family" by _ducky_dude__
I shuffled from one foot to another while trying to put on an I don't know what you're talking about but I'll see if I can help sort of expression. Believe me, this is not the easiest expression for a cornered Lupe to make. I was just about to burst into a hastily made-up explanation, when Mill burst into the room. "Shelly! Bo's stuck in the toilet!"

"Erew: The Seventh Abandoning" by jamice_muff_muff
Dr._Death put his head in his hands and didn't look up for several minutes. Erew waited patiently by his desk, his tail twitching from side to side. The Lupe was used to this behavior - it happened every time. For him, at least. He knew perfectly well that Dr._Death didn't want to put up with him anymore; he was just plain sick of seeing Erew turning up...

"Why Not Spike?" by honshusan
At first, the prospect of getting a new Petpet was an excellent idea in Leven's mind. His old Petpet, a Pirate Faellie by the name of ScurvySpike, had never really liked him. And he was a great fan of Yooyuball, so a Yooyu would make a great Petpet. Yes, Leven had decided. Spike was out, and Yooyu was in. But the look on Spike's face as he was taken out the door of 494991 Bread Street...

Pinky the Brave: Part Two
She had been having a wonderful dream where she was back at her Neohome, curled up and sinking into the soft folds of a huge, velvety cushion, right before the horns and the shouting voices blared in her ear, sending her plunging right back to the harsh reality...

The Right Kind of Family
During the course of three days, my little sister, Kell, or Kelly to call her by her full name, had ripped the head off of my Jeran plushie, eaten my secret collection of chocolate Jerans, stolen all my Neopoints which I was saving up for more Jeran stuff and spent it on Usukis. Who wouldn't want revenge?
