|Pay It ForwardUsually our days involved little more than a tour around Neopia, visiting the tombola and taking a chance at the Poogle races. But every so often we struck out on an adventure, something unusual or exciting…|
Our biggest adventure started out like an ordinary day – at the giant omelette, scrounging for a spot of breakfast.
|Don't Be Such a Baby!As I watched my sister brush a stray strand of jade coloured fur away from her eyes, I wondered why she would have been abandoned. Prior to being Royal, she had been a simple Red Kacheek, but the nature of Royalty came to her with ease. She was kind and courteous, and nothing short of graceful.|
|Inside the BottleAethia bounced around in her bottle, having been shrunk down to a little over the size of an apple. It was difficult to see out of the green tinted glass, but she watched her bottle being placed on a shelf next to bottles similar to hers. A small white sticker was then placed on the glass, over most of her field of vision. Aethia struggled to make out the letters – 100 neopoints.|
|SeparationTrouble. Habib wished that they were facing Trouble, the blue Babyca, now. Unfortunately, trouble in this case was three dark faeries. Not one. Not two. Three!|
|Living With WugglesThis goes out to my dear FireLilyWuggles, who I adore even in all of her insanity.|
|Spacerocked! ExposedAll voices ceased when a looming figure entered the room, door slamming shut behind them. With a flourish of his dark cape, Dr. Sloth strode to the front of the room with a grace afforded by the grandiosity of his evil. Or so he chose to perpetuate. |

20 Things To Do this Month of Celebrating
The Month of Celebrating approaches and with it comes a warm (or cold!) atmosphere between fellow Neopians, followed by several activities of merrymaking and gift-giving. This is the time of the year to sit back and enjoy a warm cup of borovan as you listen to different Neopets singing soothing songs, and it is also the time to be going out and chucking snowballs at your friends!
There are just so many things to do all month long, so I've decided to create a list to help you and your friends make the absolute most out of this merry month. You can choose to do one activity per day, do everything in one go, or do everything again and again every day!
|Unordinary Holiday Colours|
It’s the Month of Celebrating and all over Neopia (especially in Terror Mountain) Neopets are being painted Christmas and Snow while others are hoping to be zapped Ice by the Lab Ray. But what if your Neopets aren’t the type who wants to be festive 24/7 or can be easily melted at room temperature? You still want them to be painted for the upcoming holidays but the immediate choices aren’t your style. With so many Colours available there must be one that will help you celebrate the holidays while also fitting to your Neopet’s personal tastes.
|Preparing for the Month of Celebration|
You will need a few things to get into the mood for next month's celebrations. It's time to dust of your Christmas tree in the back of the closet, get out all your Christmas ornaments, untangle your Christmas lights and garlands, and start thinking of all the gifts you'll be giving your loved ones. I know it is a little bit early for the month of celebration, but if you love it as much as I do, here are a few things you can do to start the best month of the year.
|Neoquest II: The Forgotten Heroine: Part One|
Arthur was a Red Bruce who had gotten caught up in the Neoquest hype a bit later than the other children, but he too enjoyed playing Neoquest II. Eventually though, what happens to most gamers happened to him too, he found that the game’s plot was hackneyed, and repetitive, and it felt more like work than playing, so he quit in the middle of his Evil Mode run. Several years later, when all of that was a distant memory, he passed by a store one day and something displayed on the window caught his eye. It looked like a Neoquest game, but the title and cover were different, it said; Neoquest II: The Forgotten Heroine.
|The Silver Lining: Part Two|
She stalked back and forth, wishing she could punch something. She had entered the Beauty Contest countless times. She had advertised as much as she could, she had talked with voters. And Thunder, who had never entered the Beauty Contest before in his life, who had never shown even the most basic interest in beauty or fashion, had beaten her.
