A Mutant's Best Friend

He was so tired of being made a spectacle of. Mutants were so outcast these days...

Introspection of the Misunderstood

The sky shines bright blue today, clear enough that you can almost see to the heavens above. From down here, one can only imagine the vastness of space, of what lies beyond, out of reach from all but the most intrepid.

Quiggles Plus

When the freighter arrives, the captain finds the baby Grundo eating his turnips. He's furious. He takes the baby with him, to the market in Meridell, then on to the rubbish heap to dump the half eaten turnips and leaves the youngster there.

"Quiggles Plus" by edawg202
"What do we do?” said the orange Grundo, "Sloth will soon be here with his evil ship of doom. "We must save our son," said her husband. So he sneaks him onto a freighter (which doesn't take passengers) off of Grundor. An hour after, Sloth arrives and Grundor is no more. When the freighter arrives, the captain finds the baby Grundo eating his turnips. He's furious. He takes the baby with him, to the market in Meridell, then on to the rubbish heap to dump the half eaten turnips and leaves the youngster there. While haphazardly crawling about the disgusting piles of junk, he comes across a blue Quiggle morphing potion. He drinks it, and turns into a Quiggle. The dump keeper finds him, and gives him Samrin to raise. Samrin takes good care of him, raises him as a shepherd, his only other friends being the petpets and the occasional visit from Baby Aibo. He spends much time in the fields, and it is here that he learns to...fly. The blue Quiggle, who shall be known simply as Ichiban, was becoming known throughout Meridell. Finally, when Ichiban was full grown, Skarl comes to him and says "Ichi, boy, its a great big world. Go out and see it." Skarl then shoves him across the border. After flying for a while, he is looking for a place to spend the night. He looks down, and sees a Blumaroo coming out of a coffin. "I'll keep going," he thinks. Around dawn, weary from flight, he crashes through a window in Neopia Central "Master Niban, there is a blue Quiggle sleeping on the floor. Shall I remove him?" "Wait a minute, Rooves, how'd he get in?" "Through the window." "But we're three stories up. Lets wake him and ask." The Neopian millionaire and his butler move Ichiban to a guest bedroom. He comes to in six hours. "So," Niban asks nonchalantly, "how'd you get here?"

Undead Rising: Part Three
Bernard coughed as smoke covered the area, filling his lungs and making his eyes water. What in the world was that?

“Confound it! Another potion failed…” A rather irritated voice came from inside the small hut. “I’d better air out the shack again. That smell is awful…”

The Spirit of Black Keep: Part Four
It really was like stepping into another world. The thick wall behind them muffled the sounds of the city, leaving the ruins eerily silent. Overgrown thickets of brush carpeted the ground, and gnarled old trees, their bare branches devoid of the slightest hint of spring, pushed their roots against cracked stone like they were attempting to escape from their wretched prison.
