The Thing With Wings

“Can we consider him a member of the undead?” “Can we consider him a member of the undead?”

Cornelius Blunt glared at the white Zafara with wings on its back, wearing a brown coat, sitting out on the Sanatorium porch under the pouring rain. His fellow newly-hired nurse, a mummified Ruki in hospital garb with a somewhat defective tongue, shrugged, saying: “Wreeeaaah?”

Usuki Singing Stars #27: MORE Publishing Problems

“Hey girlfriends!” Sparkles cheered as she entered the Neoschool cafeteria. The pink Bruce strutted towards her friends, took her seat next to Patricia and placed a copy of the Neopian Times open-faced on their table. “Look, I brought something for us to read while we eat,” she said with a beaming look on her face.

"Wishing for a Happy Birthday" by iciclefaerie05
Qtty was delighted! Her sister Theloni’s first birthday was coming up. Although Qtty looked the baby, she was in fact years older than her youngest sister. She was determined to make this the best birthday ever! She had her other sisters, Cuddlicious and Dylean, working on decorations, food, and entertainment. They already had Yes Boy Ice Cream signed up to play at the party! The baby Poogle was bouncing between the shops in Neopia Central. She had the most important job; she was in charge of presents! Her and her sisters had pooled their allowances to get the biggest, best gift their meager Neopoints could buy. She jangled the small bag of Neopoints – 5,642 Neopoints to be exact. Qtty had counted and recounted three times with her sisters. Quirking her brow, Qtty scanned the Bazaar jangling the bag of Neopoints mindlessly. ‘Would a gourmet chocolate be the right gift?’ Qtty asked herself. She took a whiff of the rich cocoa fumes coming from the Chocolate Factory and shook her head. Nope, her sister like most Alien Aishas, preferred the oddest combinations: mayonnaise and flies, fish and chocolate, ketchup and ice cream. Yuck! If the chocolate smelled good to Qtty, it probably was not gross enough for Theloni.

A Queen's Ascension - Justice: Part Nine
It had been two months now since King Frezon’s coronation. The time had passed far too quickly for Frezon and Sankara. Indeed it had passed very quickly for Tomos, Vyssa, Nabile and Jazan as well. But for the people of Sakhmet, it had a long, confusing, often difficult time.
