Do You Believe In Magic: Part One

It was that the end of one of these eight hour shifts that Elwin now found himself stalking slowly home from. The day had been relatively standard, all things considered. Classes had been rote, lunch had been minimal, and stories had been written, but there had been…an incident.

"Illusen's Day Off" by sparktater
Poor Illusen had to deal with a lot of this- angry pets who had just missed out on their window for quest items, sending them back to the beginning. It wasn’t uncommon to get aggressive pets and even owners as a result. She had been threatened several times and with violence more than once. It made her long standing feud with Jhudora look like a playground disagreement! Whilst on the whole she loved giving out faerie quests in her home of Meridell, she couldn’t deny it also presented its own problems. She looked over towards the Acara who was still standing by the door, now being screamed at by his furious owner who did indeed miss 1.5 million NP from her shop till. The Acara cheekily suggested being painted with said paint brush, only to be dragged away by the arm back home. Illusen sighed. She had been living here giving out quests for 15 years, night and day. She hated to refuse a pet, even if they woke her up at 3am! She only ever got one day off a year. That would be Jhudora day, on which she had to watch Neopians celebrate her arch-nemesis. That wasn’t entirely why she didn’t give out quests, but it seemed to her to be a good a day as any other to get a well-deserved vacation. The true reason why, she had actually totally forgotten, along with why she hated Jhudora in the first place.

The Haunted Woods is the kind of place you grow up hearing stories about. Elders pass down tales of ghosts and friends who never returned to wide eyed children who in turn butcher it a hundred different ways whispered among friends. When he was younger, it was ingrained in him that lying was the coward’s way out, but evidently that didn’t extend to adults who didn’t want you wandering off in the dark.

Soup Faerie Appreciation Day
They both owed much to faeries, which was why they were drawn to Faerieland. They wanted their future children raised in a place where such goodness was in evidence everywhere you looked. They knew they were making the right choice. Now, there was only one thing left to do. They went to say goodbye.
