All For a Gift

“After all, who can be sad in the Month of Celebrating?” the Draik asked herself. Almost as if to prove her wrong, it was at that moment she heard the sound of someone sniveling. She got up and looked behind the building, only to see a Neopet curled up in a ball, with a hat covering her head and her face buried in her arms.

The Eye of the Beholder

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, some say. Well, that may be true. But, it does not answer to the truth that there are some who benefit from their looks far more than others. That is why we have models and enviable celebrities and popular students at school who use their appearances to their advantage. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, are there some eyes whose opinions carry heavier weight? Or, is it simply that more eyes perceive these lucky individuals as the most beautiful?

Crimson Chaos

You'd think two adventures would be enough for a girl. Between dodging Captain Bloodhook back in the Pirate Caves to recover the Mermaid's Tear and rescuing Bori in the Ice Caves and all. Yet I was hungry for more. I had a thirst for something new, something more bold than before.

Jhudoras Secret

Beware the Bluff! Some Neopets have reported that, in the dark of night, Jhudora has been spotted on her bluff chanting and dropping items into a cauldron of bubbling green liquid. No Neopet, however, has ever dared ask her about it, and most likely, none ever will. Neopets who ask too many questions about Jhudora tend to... disappear.

“After all, who can be sad in the Month of Celebrating?” the Draik asked herself. Almost as if to prove her wrong, it was at that moment she heard the sound of someone sniveling. She got up and looked behind the building, only to see a Neopet curled up in a ball, with a hat covering her head and her face buried in her arms. The Neopet seemed to be weeping, so the Draik drew closer. “Um, excuse me ma’am, but what seems to be the matter?” she asked. The Neopet looked up, revealing herself to be another Draik - a Stealthy one - with her “hat” perking up as well, as it was actually a Christmas Ghostkerchief. As the two Draiks got a closer look at each other, they were both taken back. “P-Paldei?” the Stealthy Draik whimpered. Paldei stood there, mouth agape. “A… Asilvani?” With a tearful smile, Asilvani got up and embraced her younger sister. “Oh Paldei, I’m so glad to see you! These past few months have been so awful… I haven’t seen a friendly face in weeks.” Paldei staggered back from Asilvani. “Sis, I can’t believe it! You’ve been gone since the Month of Collecting! Everyone’s been so worried! Where have you been?” Her gaze drifted over to Asilvani’s left wing, which had a massive tear in the wing membrane. Paldei gasped as she pointed at the wound.

Nonlinear Companions: Dawn: Part Six
"It's starting to snow," I observed. "The Ice Caves are like, indoors, right?" Westron laughed at me, "Well, caves are predominantly 'indoor' locations, in fact, I'd go so far as to say it’s a defining feature of them."

Dreaming of Adventure: Part Four
“Hey, look who it is! Cairo!” Stevie interrupted Ramona and Sweet’s conversation and pointed with his stubby trunk. The adults turned to look and Stacie stirred on Sweet’s lap. The eventide Wocky had just entered the inn. The dinner crowd had just begun to enter. Sweet looked at Ramona and tilted her head towards Cairo. “Would you mind if I spoke to Cairo? There are some things I feel must be said to him. He is the cause of all of this mess that we are currently in.”
