An Artful Heart

Ever since Kasey Kacheek was a baby, he had always loved the arts. He first visited the art centre at the age of five. Fascinated by the glow of the campfire dancing across the Aishas' faces, he'd listen shyly as they wove fantastic tales of mountains, beasts, and the brave Neopets who conquered them.

Too Good to be True

Taking a sip of his morning coffee, Dr. Frank Sloth let out a sigh and began his morning ritual of sorting through his mail. A group of pesky Grundos had thought it’d be funny to sign him up to a variety of mailing lists. Even with his vast power and influence, he’d had been so far unsuccessful in stopping it.

The World Beyond Meerca Chase

“Game over! Here are your Neopoints!” Alistair grinned until the latest player walked away, carrying a pouch of shiny Neopoints, and then sighed and placed his head in his paws. This was not an easy task for a Meerca, but he managed it somehow.

"Finding the Right Place" by sky_lady
It was a pleasant and sunny morning in Meridell. Melanie was lying in her large bed looking through the window while the rays of sunshine were gently touching her face. "Here we go again." Melanie heavily sighed. Melanie, was an adult white Kacheek with brown hair. She was very creative so she was supposed to organize a picnic for her and her friends. It was the end of the Summer and her vacations were almost over. It was the time of the year that Melanie organized a picnic with a different theme and location. She had been doing so for the previous five years. She was the best at organizing their little parties and she was always looking forward to do so. For some reason this year she wasn't quite happy about it, though. She couldn't find inspiration and she was lacking of fun ideas. Lucy was meeting her shortly. "Time to get up and get things done, I guess." Melanie said as she was slowly getting up from her warm bed. She went to the bathroom, grabbed a pink brush and while she was brushing her hair, Melanie looked herself into the mirror. "I'm getting old." she sighed. Melanie got down the stairs and when she was going to the kitchen to prepare her breakfast, the doorbell rang. "Just a minute, please." Melanie shouted as she dragged herself to the door. When she opened the door, a ray of sunshine lighted all the hallway. It was indeed a sunny morning and so it was the perfect day for a picnic. A little Cybunny dressed in a fussy red dress was standing in front of her. "Hey Mel! How are you today?" Lucy asked as she was already hugging Melanie. "Ugh, can't believe you are still on your pajamas!" Lucy complained with a cheerful smile on her face. Lucy was a very friendly yellow Cybunny, with curly brown hair and rosy cheeks. Like all the Cybunnies she was short and very energized. "Hello Lucy. You came earlier than I expected." Melanie babbled, crossing her arms in front of her chest. "Right. Groceries shopping went faster than I expected! I already bought everything for our picnic, I guess I didn't forget anything." Lucy claimed very excited. "Lets see... I bought bread, ham, peanut butter, you love peanut butter, right?" Lucy listed the groceries with a big smile on her face. "I also bought lots of yummy cheese, apple juice, orange juice for Bella, strawberries, blackberries... I may have bought more stuff but I can't recall everything." Lucy finished.

I should've seen it. Even with my amnesia, I should've seen that Dee was Jackie. She was pretending to have amnesia. She responded to the name Jackie. She had a better grip of what was going on than I did. I should've known something was up with her. It was too obvious.
