Glass Shards

They lived on a small island above Meridell, Darigan Citadel the petpet's family called it. Petpet Battles were always around the corner, free training and entertainment. There weren't any Petpet shops so Shard was free of the responsibility of having a Neopet owner. That was until she fell.

How A Uni Gets Its Horn

There is an ancient legend that circulates around Neopia every year as Uni Day draws closer. It is said that a Uni is not really born with its horn, but no one is ever around to confirm the story. The legend goes that a Uni must be given the unconditional love of both of its parents before it can grow its horn.

"How A Uni Gets Its Horn" by alex_bubbly
The night was young, as the sun was just beginning to set over Neopia. A young Uni was just being born at the hospital, but unfortunately his mother left him shortly after and his dad was never around. Like all abandoned Unis, this one in particular was given a name by one of the nurses and sent to the newborn ward on the third floor of the hospital. The nurse decided to name him Theodore, since she would be the one taking care of him around the clock. Every hour, on the hour, she came to check on little Theodore. It wasn’t very hard to pick him out amongst all of the Neopets, as he was the only Uni without his horn. To others, Theodore may not be their first choice when coming to adopt, but to Nurse Kayla, he was the most beautiful little boy she had ever laid her eyes on. She smiled down at him and stroked the top of his head until he fell asleep with his blanket and his hoof in his mouth. Nurse Kayla giggled, as she loved when the babies did this, since it portrayed their innocence. She sighed, wishing she had a baby of her own, and left. She knew it would be almost impossible to care for a child, since she was almost always at work. It wasn’t that she hadn’t thought about it before; she really had. She even had a nursey already set up at home in case the opportunity ever came up where she would be able to care for a child. As the weeks went by, many of the Neopets in the adoption ward had already been adopted and there were only a handful left, Theodore included.

The Beast: Part One
“The Beast” is said to have set up his lair in the volcano, and poor souls who spin the Wheel of Monotony sometimes end up getting a fright from this beast. However, no one is really 100% sure of where the beast lives. They can only guess, speculate, and try their best to stay far away.

Return to Lynwood: Part Two
“It was once a town quite a bit smaller than Barrowmere or Neovia, but holding its own nonetheless. Then… well, I am not quite sure what happened to it. None of us had travelled this way for quite a while, but one spring I ventured back here and… everyone was gone. Even their smell was gone.”
