Quote of the Week


"This?" he said, touching the ray gun at his belt. "This is a device constructed for the purpose of holding down papers, and is not a ray gun that can incinerate matter in under three seconds if skilfully wielded and equipped with a proper power source."

The Second-Hand Shoppe



It sits in the Neopian Plaza, between the modern Defenders HQ and the Welcome Center, oft overlooked by those seeking only to go to the Kadoatery or the Wishing Well.

"Just Siblings" by pringlz

He stood, then glanced at her with a look in his eyes...

Though the green Aisha wasn't doing anybody any harm, simply by walking into the café and ordering a cup of coffee, she had elicited nervous glances and guarded looks from everyone inside. She sighed internally. The trench coat probably didn't help, either. The poor Wocky behind the counter had trembled terribly when the Aisha had...
