Quote of the Week
"I think you've done enough, Frankie," said the Space Faerie coolly.
Perhaps you've been wondering when you would hear from me... it's been a while since I saved the world... and here I am, to bring you a wonderful self esteem raising column. I mean, really, honestly we could have come up with a better name for this... "Ask Armin," how unoriginal can you get? Maybe "Someday Armin will take over the world so if you quit whining right now and be his friend instead he'll promote you to something above ‘insignificant fleck of matter'." Ahem, have I said too much?
He was banished by angry townspeople, who were also victims of the elixir. Escaping from the mob, Bruno took shelter in a cave. Your ingame task is to play Bruno, who collects potions and carries them to the cave. When you bring all the potions, you advance to the next level. Sounds easy, huh? Unfortunately, angry, deformed Neovians will make this task a bit difficult. They throw stones at Bruno, and if a stone hits you or you bump into one of the townspeople, you will lose a life...
Neopian New Year Resolutions
It's that time of the year again, when the Neopian Times is filled to brimming with seasonal articles about shopping, decorating, sledding and snowball fights. There are articles about what's the best gift to give to Frank Sloth and how to make a Kiko snowman (a hint, you only need to roll one snowball).

When I was a young Lupe and I first started playing Yooyuball, my team was respected by everyone, even our opponents. We were from Brightvale, the land of knowledge. The honest, hardworking souls who spent a lifetime trying to be the best. I'm not saying that my teammates didn't want to be the best. I'm saying that they took the easy way out. I'm saying that they cheated...
|"Spelling Bees and Bullies" by cutiefluteyelephant4
She sloshed through the snow unhappily, feeling embarrassed at the looks all her classmates had given her. She should have let Lucy won. She'd had her fame for the last eight weeks. Jen looked up from her self-scolding, and saw Lucy hurrying around the corner of the street, draped in a small, thin, torn cape, clutching a Tatty Notebook and a Tatty Pencil...
|"Kidnapped By a Wannabe Villain" by animalnutz1993
He wanted her blindfolded before she could see the Grundos and put two and two together. He wanted her stuffed in a bag and flown back to the Space Station. He wanted them to open the bag and roll her out of it before him while he looked sinister and he wanted her blindfold removed just then so that she could gasp in horror at his sight and whisper his name...

|Kidnapped By a Wannabe Villain|
In his fury, Sloth resulted into doing what he
did to channel out his anger: he got out his crayons and drew diabolical plans
with his bear, EvilSnuggler. That made him feel a little better; that is, until
one of his assistant Grundos came running into his office with some bad news...
|The Hoarders: Part Four|
Cane had disappeared again.
She knew that was the plan, but she began to feel slightly more miserable. She
couldn't remember the way back to the house, and she always felt so lonely without
|Into the Sea: Part Five|
Nobody said anything for a few moments. The
only sound that could be heard was the tick-tock of the clock by the door. Velt's
eyes were sad, but Katrina's were hard and angry. The girl clenched her fists
tighter and tighter every second...
