Quote of the Week


Everyone knows you can't have your cake and eat it too. I am sure the dark faerie who graced Aisha Day with her repugnant presence was a firm believer in this, as the first thing she did upon arrival was smash the cake in with one well-placed, high-heeled boot.


Chill Out, Neopia



Do you ever find yourself building a routine? Every day, you log on, go straight to Turmac Roll and work your way through all your favourite games until you're at Kiko Match II? Do you find that you play each game three times over until you're sick of it? And by the end, you're rolling in the NP, but it felt like a chore? Well, it really doesn't have to be that way, you know! Why not vary your choice of games? Try something new - you never know, you might be a superstar at a game you never knew existed...

Is Trading Degrading?



Before I explain the sticky moral dilemma regarding transfers, let's study the word in closer detail, as I'm told studying is apparently helpful or something. According to my handy-dandy dictionary, the word comes from trans-, meaning "a geometric isomer having a pair of identical atoms or groups on the opposite sides of two atoms linked by a double bond", and -fer, meaning "one that bears."

An untrained eye would see a normal Cybunny, dressed smartly in a black cloak and top hat, probably of the wealthy sort. He walked with an air of mystery and confidence, his black leather boots clacking rhythmically against the cold stone streets. His well groomed fur gleamed under what little light those lampposts could provide...

"Cheaters Never Prosper" by mamasimios and dollgirl44
It was with horror and shame that she discovered, one day, that her father had instructed everyone to lose to the young Princess on purpose. Displaying her well-known hot temper, Fernypoo had stormed out of the castle and shouted at her father, "You don't believe in me! I'll show you! I'll show you all!!"
