Alternative Vacations

No wonder you didn't have the opportunity to get away! Now that we're reaching the end of the months of sunshine, it's time to pack your bags and escape the brown-leaf blues, and NeoGuides Holidays are here...

Hear It From the Source

You know, the life of a Lutari isn't easy. Most of you think we just popped up on a random day, taking the Neopian world by storm and surprise. But this simply isn't the case!

"The Perfect Recipe" by katiesheffield

The Tooth Faerie
Not all stories end happily, you know. Whenever someone starts reading a story they just know that no matter what, the end will be filled with cheerfulness, smiles, and everyone's lives being OK. Well in the real Neopia, things aren't all like that...
