|Nonlinear Companions: Dawn: Part SevenAs we approached the Happy Valley exit of the Ice caves, I could see the snow violently swirling round in little concentric circles. The sky had become a deep grey and the few neopets that were outside, were being tossed about like ragdolls in the wind. |

|One Way Out: Part FourIt took some begging and pleading, but Merida convinced Chosek to let Akali come with them. “He helped me all this way. It would be rude not to let him tag along. The astroblade was his, anyway. You have him to thank for finding it.” |
|Southward Bound: Part Two"I’ve always heard rumours that he’d had a secret base at the South Pole, but I never dreamed they were real!” said Osa. “This is not good. There’s no way we could take on a whole Sloth base by ourselves!” said Brynn.|
|Spiral: Part TwoThe group ceased any movement. The forest fell silent. Nearby, a glowing caught their focus. Wearing a frilly dress, and a neat bow, slowly, a wispy translucent Kacheek floated into the vicinity, a short distance away…|

"Like, Totally Goth" by downrightdude
Scary place her hands on her hips. “What’s your point?”
“Those who place value on material goods have destroyed the spirit of Christmas,” said Gerald.
(Well your atrocious attire is destroying my eyesight), Scary thought. Despite the clothing, however, there was something about Gerald she couldn't help but feel connected to. “So...what are you interested in? Music?”
Gerald nodded. “Have you heard the newest Jazzmosis album? It rocks.”
“You like Jazzmosis too?” Scary gasped. “No way! All my other wannabe friends prefer Yes Boy Ice Cream over Jazzmosis–though I personally like them both.”
“At least Jazzmosis write their own songs,” Gerald countered. “Those boy band Shoyrus can’t even play instruments.”
The longer she and Gerald talked–discussing music genres and their hatred for the color pink–the closer Scary felt towards this ‘Goth dude’. Despite his distaste for boy bands, Gerald felt like somebody she could bind with and actually (enjoy) the company of, too. (Maybe this n00b isn’t as bad as I thought,) Scary mused. (He definitely has more interesting taste than Sparkles!)
As soon as his breaths had turned into the gentle wheezes of dreamers, I knew it was time. The moon bore witness to my fleeting figure, noting without emotion my attempts to keep as quiet as I could as I tiptoed out of the room. It saw me find what I was looking for, and offered a handful of moonbeams to aid my inspections. I accepted them, though they turned out to be unnecessary. I’d already known it’d be perfect.
|A Priceless Gem|
She sighed. But l can't live my life in fear of talking to people! Mother wants me to take the throne someday, but how can I rule over a town if I'm forbidden from getting to know anyone?
She looked back, where Crystalluxe was watching Lillille in confusion from her bedroom door.
Maybe it's time…

So sit back, grab a notebook, and prepare to take notes on the best ways to celebrate Sloth Day in style!

|So You Lost it All On the Wheel of Extravagance|
All you wanted was some exotic fruits or bread to spice up dinner; one minute you’re making a beeline for Qasalan Delights, telling yourself, out loud, over and over, this time he isn’t going to get you - and the very next thing you know, you’re letting go of the side of the wheel, chanting BIG MONEY BIG MONEY as it spins before you, that darn Tonu laughing at your naivete as he greedily counts a bag full of your hard-earned neopoints, more than you should even be carrying in the first place.
The Discarded Magical Blue Grundo Plushie of Prosperity wishes he could be left alone for a couple hours to nap!
