Quote of the Week


"It will be a struggle, of course," Tobik answered. "But I shall soldier through. It is the least I can do."

Tobik, of course, had more than enough money to refurnish her home and blow a few million on hats – her idea of lean spending was gold leaf instead of gold brick.


Meridell Fashions



As you set off down the woodland path out of Neopia Central at the end of the month of Swimming, you cannot help but feel a certain excitement in the air. Your fellow travelers are adorned with brilliant blue, red, and yellow garments, and in the distance you can hear a merry flute accompanied by the strumming of a lute and the regal boom of horns. At last...

"Hero of Shenkuu" by encroached
Becoming the Empress of Shenkuu was surprisingly—that is, almost disappointingly—easy. The residents needed a ruler, and the choices were few. I had the best interests of the people in mind, and my appearance as a Royalgirl Shoyru fit the role perfectly. An overwhelming majority of the Neopets of Shenkuu chose me as their leader, and awarded me with the highest floor of the Lunar Temple from which to conduct my royal rulings...

Kings and Curses: Part Six
Only Jazan's weariness would keep him from having a wakeful night. He stared up at the stony ceiling, wondering what it would take to defeat an ancient king thoughtlessly released into the world.
