Clouds Over Cogham: Part Nine

The assassin's glare is pure acid as he looks up once more towards the knight with which he duels. Desperate now, he stands straight and opens his arms, then his entire being begins to glow with intense nova magic. Tor takes a few worried steps back at the sight. Roberta watches in awe from a distance. "This ends now!"

Tribulations of a Quest Sceptic: Part Five

She was about to suggest they all sat and relaxed, when a cold spurt of water hit her in the face. “PFFFFFFFT.” Saba spluttered wildly, gazing around frantically. Was it the Techo ghosts? Had they come for her?

Orlitz and the Search for the Emerald Crown: Part Three

Orlitz awoke late in the morning after a troubled night of sleep. Yesterday, she had told her friends everything she had discovered at the abandoned cabin, and had even showed them the exquisite crown she had taken from the premises. They all marvelled at the gorgeous head piece, but had little to offer in terms of help.

The Burning Book of Moltara: Part Two

"It's right over there, on that island ahead." They had flown around a maze of islands until they seemed to be in the middle of them all. As the three of them reached the beach, the Peophin stopped short and tilted its head towards the shore. "I can't go with you, but it's right over there. You'll know when you find it."

"The Malevolent Candy Vampire" by jhudora96
Tulse, by very nature—as he was a most fluffy Marshmallow Grundo—always loved all things sweet. In fact he dedicated his life to sweets and eventually opened up his own bakery where he handcrafted every delectable sweet he could dream up! When Tulse wasn’t snacking on cakes and pastries, he was preparing them for all his customers in the heart of the Neopia market! And it was his love of sweets that inevitably led him to Wilburt the Candy Vampire, an evil little creature he discovered in a bag of candy corn and decided to make his very own petpet, despite the ominous sharp teeth and hateful glare. “I’m not sure this is a good idea,” Tulse’s owner had warned her pet while side eyeing the piece of candy corn with impossibly sharp teeth, but Tulse could not be deterred. He was in love with his strange little petpet. Only…despite Tulse’s best efforts to appease the delicious but evil petpet, Wilburt was, as some would say, bad to the bone. At least once a day, Tulse would be busy at work in his bakery only to discover that a bunch of ingredients—usually the rare and expensive ones—were missing. He would later find Wilburt relaxing in the back pantry with gourmet chocolate smeared on his mouth and a smug expression across his face. Wilburt also had a tendency to scare away customers. One of his favourite games was to hide in the display jar of candy corn Tulse set out in the front shop for young Neopets to snack on while they ordered. Wilburt would wait for a pudgy little paw to reach down eagerly in the jar, and then would sink his sharp, unruly teeth in. The Neopet would burst into scream or cry and the owner, in horror, would immediately scoop their pet up and claim to Tulse, “I won’t be coming back here!”
