Tula's Terrible Truth

The sun was setting over Faerieland. Tula watched as everything around her slowly became shrouded in a dusky light. She dipped her hand into the blue green water of the lake by the Faerie Caverns. Only minutes ago the water had been warm and welcoming - now, without the rays of the sun, it was already beginning to cool.

Sutek's Ancient Tomb

“Nooo, Sarina!” Torin called desperately. His friend teetered precariously on the brink of the pit. Her hands grabbed fistfuls of air. But it was futile really. She fell all the same.

Unbreakable Bonds

Even back in Year 4, Neopia Central was a busy place.

Bustling crowds of shoppers hurried from one store to the next with their Neopets, or stopped to eat, or unfolded that week’s copy of the Neopian Times to read the conclusion to their favourite series.

Thoughts of a Pair of Edible Pets

Robin the Ixi and his adopted sister Sunset the Zafara, a pair of pets living a forest near Shenkuu, sat in a cave, watching the rain outside. Their suburban section of Shenkuu containing their owner's Neohome was not far from there and the rainfall was comparatively light; most pets would have simply braved the weather.

Visit To The Neopian History Museum

My steps echoed through the corridor, my paws cold from the granite. I stuck my paws in the pockets of my hoodie, warming them slightly. My owner stood next to me, walking me into this strange place. A museum, she had said it was. But so far, all I had seen was a long hallway. Jessa grabbed my arm.

"Unbreakable Bonds" by cosmicfire918
Even back in Year 4, Neopia Central was a busy place. Bustling crowds of shoppers hurried from one store to the next with their Neopets, or stopped to eat, or unfolded that week’s copy of the Neopian Times to read the conclusion to their favourite series. Amid the throng, a young girl strode with purpose. She was a simple light-skinned human, with her long brown hair tied back and her blue eyes hidden shyly behind glasses. Certainly, she did not stand out among her fellow owners. But one thing made her different. She was alone. By herself, she wended her way down the street, listening to excited chatter about a new species of Neopet, the Tonu, that had just been discovered in Tyrannia, and of the rewards being given by a dark faerie named Jhudora, whose cloud in Faerieland had recently been opened to patrons. Tyrannia and Faerieland. They felt worlds away from the girl’s home in Neopia Central. How badly she longed to see them, to explore everything Neopia had to offer. But this world also had its fair share of dangers, she knew from her reading. She would need a Neopet companion for the journey. And now, she felt she was ready to take the plunge. Finally she came to her destination. She clutched the straps of her rucksack and craned her neck up at the Create-a-Pet Centre, an enormous building made of elegant curving glass and spires of gold. It was the oldest structure in Neopia Central, and it was said the faeries created it eons ago.

Not What TNT Intended!
After musing over these aspects of the site, I wondered, what else about this site has happened that TNT didn't intend at all? I decided to rush over to the Neoboards and ask my fellow Neopians. I got many interesting replies!

Guide For the Recently Ghost-ed
Having a dramatic change in physical appearance can be incredibly stressful for anyone, but even more so when those physical changes come along with changes in ability. If you’re reading this, you (if you’re a Neopet) or your pet (if you’re something else) has recently been painted Ghost! You may be wondering, what does this mean for you?

Lupe Pack Detectives - The Kidnapped JubJub: Part One
It was approximately a quarter past one in the morning when Noel the Christmas JubJub woke up because of his growling stomach. He groaned and hopped out of bed, heading out of his room and downstairs to the kitchen to make himself a midnight snack. After he was finished his snack, he carefully put the items that he used away and headed back upstairs.

Janet and Jane: The Case of the New Addition: Part Four
For a minute, it was as if time froze. I didn't mean for that to slip out. One, this was not a good time. Someone could come up to us in a second and wonder what we were doing. Two, I was not prepared. Not being prepared was something that got me in a whole bunch of problems.
