Quote of the Week


It was a dark and stormy night. Forks of lightning sliced through the black sky, thunder pounded in my ears... Just kidding. It was actually a pretty mild afternoon. I'd just eaten a really juicy pineapple.


Missing Hubrid Nox?



I'm sure many Neopians have been missing the sight of Hubrid Nox since his unfortunate demise, but fear not - now you can create your very own Hubrid Nox plushie to sit by your computer! To make this crochet plushie, you will need: a 3mm crochet hook (US size C crochet hook); knowledge of how to do the DC (double crochet) stitch (US single crochet - SC); DK (US light worsted) wool in the right colours (black, pink, red and pale blue)...

Cloud JubJubs



Cloud JubJubs are very strange and different from other cloud pets. When most pets are painted cloud, their body turns a light blue color and they gain cloud markings. When a JubJub is painted cloud, they turn completely into an adorable little cloud, with only their feet and facial features remaining. Like I said, it is strange. After a little interactive investigative work, we managed to answer five main questions...

"Keep Smiling" by blueys45

Then for no rhyme or reason, a monotonous laugh began to make its way out of her mouth. With each passing second, Lumin became even more disturbed by what he was seeing.

"A Hard Nox Life" by herdygerdy
Martha paused as Castle Nox came into view. The same untended grounds. The same patchy tiling on the roof. The lights, magically enchanted, still gleamed from every window, inviting beacons in the gloom. False beacons of hope, to many Neopian travellers. A bolt of lightning coursed across the sky.
