|The Top 5 Foods from MeridellIronically, Meridell is not known for having the best food in Neopia even though much of what is eaten there is grown on local farms. In fact, it is widely known as one of the worst places to get a tasty meal. |
|The Neopian Pound - That's No LifeThis inspired me to begin regularly fostering abandoned neopets and helping them find good homes. The process starts with a search in the pound, where I look at each available pet one by one to determine who most needs my help. Today, I not only help Chias, but pets of all species.

"The Faerie Queen" by sacados
”I think I see a castle up ahead…we’re almost there!”
Lacey squealed with excitement. She was finally going to Faerieland! It had always been Lacey’s dream to visit Faerieland, and now it was being made possible thanks to her class field trip. She and her classmates had learned all about the land’s history—how it once floated in the sky upon cloud tops, but now rests peacefully on Neopia’s surface. She had become somewhat obsessed with Faerieland soon after learning about it. Lacey was a faerie Neopet herself, after all, so she felt a connection to the land and wanted to discover everything it had to offer.
|Something I Don't Already Know |
“Why is it that every time these twin Wockies organize a parade, we’re the ones sent to clean after it?”
“Shut up and get to work, Cornelius,” Carmichael glared at the Werelupe, pulling off the latex gloves from her fingers. The ghost Xweetok groaned, tying her hair in a bun. Her translucent face was stained with flaked skin and red spots, her Howie coat unbuttoned and in a state of disarray.

"Fine - just please make them sporadic. Anyway..."

Carnival folk and townspeople were against them, but Mary and Charlie were small and fast, and the collapse of the Big Top had taken much of the field’s lighting down with it. The darkness was a shield. Peter, seizing an opportunity with the confusion, kicked Esther Fastbelly very firmly in the shin and made his own escape.
