Snow War III
Wes couldn't believe it. The blue Quiggle had been stranded
out in Terror Mountain's outskirts for days with only his best friend - an orange
Grundo called Biz.
The worst part about having a Grundo best friend
was that he wouldn't shut up. There had been a blizzard while Wes and Biz were
camping out in the snow. Over the Neopian Times, the blizzard had gotten a 5
out of 5 star rating.
"Wes?" Biz asked. "When do you think this storm
will be over? Is it bad? Are we going to die?"
"I don't know," Wes muttered. "Just be quiet
and go to bed."
They lay down in the tent, almost dying of boredom.
"Is it over yet?"
"WILL YOU SHUT UP?!" Wes yelled. He fell back
asleep. Biz eventually got tired and settled down too.
He heard something faint and magical before
he passed out. Something so silent, yet so magical, it had somehow put him to
A few minutes later, Biz woke up and looked
for some food. "Hey, this isn't our tent!" he loudly whispered.
It was a tiny cabin, built somewhere on the
outskirts of Terror Mountain. Biz didn't know who it belonged to, but it looked
vaguely similar to the Snow Faerie's cabin. Then he remembered - the Snow Faerie
has two cabins!
"This place must belong to the Snow Faerie!"
he thought out loud.
"Got that right, little Grundo," the Snow Faerie's
"Snow Faerie?" Biz questioned. "What are you
doing here if you're supposed to be curing people in the village?"
"I'm on a holiday," she answered. "My sis is
taking care of the villagers."
"Can you teleport us back to the Ice Caves?"
"Sadly, I have no potion items out here," the
"Could we travel to the town by underground
tunnels?" Biz asked.
Wes had indeed woken and was listening. "No,
idiot," Wes said. "There are no underground tunnels leading to the ice caves
besides the old Snow Wars bunker!"
The Snow Faerie smiled. "We could use the Snow
"No!" Wes yelled. The Quiggle then thought.
"Maybe we could… I don't know!"
Biz spoke up. "It's been abandoned since Snow
War Two, surely it hasn't been used."
"It's settled." The Snow Faerie gave them some
supplies. "Good luck."
Biz asked, "You're not coming?"
The Snow Faerie laughed. "Are you insane? I
can barely last a second under a blizzard!" So, Biz and Wes set off.
"UGH!" Biz limped through the snow. "When do
we reach the tunnel?" The duo walked and paced through the blizzard with jackets
high around them. Then, Wes saw a strange floating thing. It was a snowball.
"Huh-!" Wes was hit in the head. He saw mutant
Grundos fighting an elite force of Neopians. A Snow War. Snow War Three.
Biz and Wes continued. Snowballs blasting this
way and that way. They reached the bunker, which began above ground as a long
igloo with windows and snowball mounds. A green Grundo greeted them. "Please,
hurry and come in!"
They followed the Grundo, who was recognized
as Sergeant Gram. The trio went into the bunker, down some stairs, and into
the underground below the war zone.
Sergeant Gram addressed them. "You two mustn't
be here. This Snow War Three's battlefield is like the back of a Scorchio with
the Neezles! Only the best of the best of the best can be here. Do I make myself
They nodded. Biz raised his hand.
"We're not in school, boy," Gram told him. "Just
Biz nodded. "We just need a way to the Ice Caves."
Sergeant Gram thought. "Transportation at this
time is currently unavailable. But, after the war passes I can see what I can
An Aisha ran into the room. "Sir, Sergeant Gram,
"What is it, Lieutenant Pickles?"
"Sir, our time is running out," Lieutenant Pickles
answered. "The Mutant Grundos say if we don't give up, they'll bring in Sloth."
There was a moment of silence. "Alright," Gram
said. "Get the white flag."
Wes was outraged. "Don't give up that easily!"
Gram sighed. "When you've won two wars, the
fighting catches up with you…"
Biz pulled something out of his pocket. An evil
snowball! Wes also had one. "We'll help."
Gram thought. He then turned back to the Aisha.
"Lieutenant, give them all we got!"
The war raged on. In a space station close by,
some Mutant Grundos walked down a hall. They reached a room and opened the door.
Sloth was there. "Well, Admiral?"
Admiral Zurggs reported. "They are showing no
signs of retreat, Lord Sloth."
"Admiral, demonstrate the full power of this
station and blow up Terror Mountain!" Sloth yelled. The admiral nodded and led
the mutants to a control room.
"Commander, fire when ready," Admiral Zurggs
said. "But just trim the top of the mountain, cutting off reinforcements."
The commander adjusted the controls to 25% power.
Then, he got the system ready and aimed. "Bye-bye." He fired a blot. It went
down a sealed tunnel, made turns, and gathered energy. Thousands of other bolts
were doing this too. Then, they all shot out beams, which connected into one
big one and destroyed the top of Terror Mountain.
The Neopian reinforcements ran screaming. "AH!"
Avalanches roared down the mountainside. Sergeant Gram yelled.
"Sloth is going to pay. If only someone could
infiltrate that station, and send one single snowball down the ventilation shaft,
he would have five minutes to get off and the station would explode." Wes and
Biz looked at each other.
Later… Biz and Wes had snuck into the ship via
mystical flying cloud. They split up and went to find the shaft.
Sloth stood up. He walked down a hall. He turned
and saw Wes. "Well, well, well. Another Neopian for the mutation lab." He grabbed
a spark shooter. Sloth set it to a new mode. It shot a beam of orange light
extending two and a half feet up.
Meanwhile, Biz had found the vent. He stuck
the snowball in and ran off. 5 minutes.
"You know you cannot win," Sloth replied.
Wes threw his evil snowball, but Sloth dodged
it. Then, Wes saw another spark shooter and did the same mode. They slashed
back and forth. 4 minutes, 20 seconds, 9 milliseconds.
Biz ran down the corridor and saw some Mutant
Grundos. Luckily, they didn't see him. He dashed down another hall and whispered,
"Wes where are you?" 3 minutes, 57 seconds, 1 millisecond.
Wes got sent back. He ran to the docking bay,
but Sloth followed. 3 minutes, 34 seconds, 64 milliseconds.
Biz reached the docking bay. He saw Sloth and
Wes. "No!" 2 minutes, 30 seconds, 10 milliseconds.
Wes turned and saw Biz. They ran and got on
the cloud. The cloud flew off. 2 minutes.
Sloth yelled. He found another cloud and followed.
1 minute. Sloth had just left the station. 30 seconds. Then, he got ten feet
away. 15 seconds. "Why won't this go any faster!" Then, the station blew up.
"Hooray!" everyone on Neopia yelled. Sergeant
Gram smiled. Sloth was not found, but had no more minions. The Snow Wars had
Eventually, Biz and Wes reached the Ice Caves.
They later found out that the station was generating the blizzard. All in a
