|Nonlinear Companions: Dawn: Part EightI would have given anything to stay here forever, but we had to go back to the real world tomorrow, university, studying, working hard. But for now we were in our own winter wonderland.
I voiced these feelings to Westron, the pirate krawk gave me half a smile and sighed.
“It would be nice, yes,” He said. “But unfortunately, we have to go back to our lives. No matter how depressing that thought might be.”

|One Way Out: Part Five “This is truly fascinating! A whole hidden world made out of food. Of course you don’t have famine or war--everything you have is around you. Food for miles!”
“I bet this wasn’t what you were expecting, Akali,” Merida caught up to her friend along the pathway.|
|Southward Bound: Part ThreeWhat lay before them was a sprawling valley filled with woods. It had lakes and rivers as well as beautiful waterfalls. There was a clearing where a wooden house stood all by itself. It had a steeply sloped roof and seemed to be standing on beams made to look like wibreth legs. Once they landed near it they all got out to look around.
“Hello! Is anyone here?” called out Osa.|
|A Baby and a Brute: Part TwoI cry all the time but it’s because I’ the Grey Faerie, you see. It’s what I do. Cry.”
“Isn’t there anything we can do?” Ana asked.
“No, not really. Just leave me be. It’s what everyone else does.”
Ana rose to her feet, picked up her bag and left the alley with Brutus. This meeting of Baelia had bothered her quite a bit.|
|Spiral: Part ThreeSubzero winds pelted the plains in the four friend’s path. Placing one foot at a time in front of the other, the comrades braced themselves as they held onto each one in their group. The water was in sight now. Reaching the landmass’s edge, Cree, Frostrym, Charmifire and Blaz leapt across the ice floe. The sheets wobbled slightly with every bound. |

"Love & War" by gleerebel
"Why are we working for this guy?" Hallie said, her face full of exasperation.
"We need the money. And there are very limited jobs around Neopia. Needing tickets and stuff for the more decent jobs. And everyone grabs the basic jobs like vultures." I groaned.
Plus, for a greedy Kacheek like him he actually gives a decent paycheck.""True." Was all Hallie replied before concentrating on the dirty dishes. She turned the faucet and the clear water poured over the dishes. I just continued sweeping until the floor was spotless. "I wonder where Chloe is?"
"Who knows. He's probably making her sort his books in his library again. The nine million books he has in there."
As Hallie was washing the dishes, a smirk grew across her petite face as the dishes became covered in bubbly soap. She decided to flick dish soap at me.
"Hey!" I exclaimed while Hallie laughed. I went over to the sink, dipped my hands in the lukewarm water, and splashed bubbles at her in retaliation. Her mouth opened in shock and I started to laugh. Then, it turned into an all out water fight.
In the midst of our fun, Thade barged into the kitchen. "What is going on here?!" He yelled. Hallie and I froze. "My kitchen is a complete mess! CLEAN IT UP IMMEDIATELY." His voice boomed as he stormed away.
After a brief silence, all Hallie and I could do was burst into complete laughter..
|A Feline Rivalry|
“You’re not buying a petpet from Altador? The petpet shop is just a short walk away.”
Jarnk flashed a grin at the Zafara. “I have something else in mind. I have to get to the Neopian Marketplace to buy one of these bad boys.”
Pit focused back on the crossword puzzle in his lap. “All right, if you say so… If you get back late just don’t wake anyone up.”
|An Elephante Dancer’s Lament |
The stage lights would burn bright atop her, but she would be the brightest of them all, outshining all the other dancers around her, before her, and perhaps even long after her.
But then, Emily would wake up, and the dream would dissipate like mist, forever out of her reach.
