|Mr. Aramate's Wonderous Emporium of the Soul: Part SixCarnival 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.|
|A Queen's Ascension - Justice: Part EightBy the time the three of them reached Jazan’s private office, it was the middle of the night. They stood outside the door, Tomos and Vyssa waiting for Nabile to make the first move. She was standing there looking a little uncertain.|
|Meegla and Fargon's Not-So-Intergalactic Adventures: Part SixMeegla headed up the peak of Terror Mountain. She figured what she needed right now was a soothing game of Snow Roller; after flattening all manner of annoying neopets and petpets with a giant snowball, she could use the pathetically small rewards to buy herself a smoothie. Comforted by this thought, she braved the gale without so much as a wince.|
|And Then There Was Silence: Part FiveFinneus hops carefully over the foggy waters of Bogshot Swamp, trying his best not to fall into the nasty, seemingly-gelatinous marsh. It's difficult, however, to maintain his balance when he's got tired, achy wings drooping behind him and his hands are full of treasures.|
|The Shade Files-Halloween Nightmare: Part FourAs we were fully aware of Forest’s expertise in magic, we knew that it would be a complete disaster if we attempted to arrest him right now. We were not certain how skilled he was in magic, but we knew that sending in Shadow Breeze by himself was completely out of the question unless we wanted him badly injured. |
|The Faerie of Ars Arcanium: Part Two"What do you mean she's the key to it?!" Sinisal said in bewilderment. She hadn't expected it to be this easy and truthfully neither did Diakumablo, although he tried to appear like he did.|
|The Amulet's Curse: Part Three“Reginald? Reginald. Please, it’s time to wake up.” It was Princess Amira, her beautiful face showed signs of stress already. “Quickly, we have to get moving, we have only three days remaining.”|

"What Are Ghouls?" by cannizarro
After yet another successful unhaunting, Brave Bren, the Professor, and Glyn were heading back to the Ghoul Catchers headquarters to recoup.
Bren held the used equipment, the Professor held the lantern, and Glyn held the amulet containing the troublesome ghoul that they'd just been chasing for half an hour. As the Purple Usul stared down at the amulet and the forlorn face circling around on the inside, a strange question suddenly came to mind.
"What are ghouls?"
"Well, Glyn, ghouls are...egh..." the Professor began, stopping to contemplate this.
"Annoying," finished Bren with a smirk.
"No, no, that's not what I was trying to say," the Professor groaned. "The fact is, Glyn, we really don't know what exactly they are."
"You don't?" Glyn asked, rather surprised by this confession.
|Dark Omen |
The Black Pteri sits on a fence post howling doom and misery for all to hear...
"Oh, please!" Ryan scoffed. "That's such a tacky beginning to a story."
The storyteller sighed. "Young Neopet, will you allow me to tell my story without interruptions?"
"Hey, I'm paying you for a story, aren't I?" Ryan retorted. "I should be able to interrupt."
"Fine - just please make them sporadic. Anyway..."
|Why Snowballs Don't Melt|
Have you ever noticed the various items made of snow that you can find all across Neopia? Have you ever wondered how they come to be in these places, so far away from Terror Mountain and Snowy Valley and yet haven't melted? This is the story of how they came to be.
|Werelupes: Myth, Legends, and Truth|
What do you think of when you hear the word "Werelupe"? More than likely, you think of a large and powerful beast filled with fury and the desire for bloodshed. You think of a horrible monster dwelling in the Haunted Woods that will hunt you down as soon as look at you. What if I told you that this was not the case?
|The Neopian Pound - That's No Life|
This 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.
