Ilarrah's Inspiration

“Well, of course not. But being a recluse for the rest of time won't help you, either. It's time to try something new. See?” She waved one stitched paw out in front of them, encompassing a wall of cacophony.

To Be a Defender

Picture the streets of Neopia Central without the embrace of everything warm and lively. Tendrils of the night wrap around every possible corner, swallowing the land, transforming it into something else entirely. This is the Neopian Central that not many Neopians will notice.

"To Be a Defender" by miu1109
This is Neopia Central, the bustling hub of activity in Neopia, housing a wide variety of shops. This is where tens of thousands of Neopians would frequent daily, where the population of natives are dwarfed by the sheer number of visitors. Picture the streets of Neopia Central. Warm, golden rays of sunlight caressing the skin of your body. The heavenly waft of freshly prepared food. The buzz of lively chatters. A brilliant rainbow stretches from the Central of the pool to the horizon. It is Neopian Central in daytime, the one that everyone would think of and says, yes, that’s the Neopian Central I remember. Now, imagine— The sun sinks into the midnight blue of the sky. The last of Neopians heading back home, taking with them the latest gossips and the last sounds of life. Above, the silver moon-sliver wanes. Picture the streets of Neopia Central without the embrace of everything warm and lively. Tendrils of the night wrap around every possible corner, swallowing the land, transforming it into something else entirely. This is the Neopian Central that not many Neopians will notice.

Do You Believe In Magic: Part Three
As strange as the rest of his journey had been thus far, this felt like real magic. The rest could have been pre-arranged, actors stationed at various points in the subterranean caverns for some unknowable reason, but this…this couldn’t have been done naturally. This was his wish come true. This was adventure.

Return to Lynwood: Part Six
“Children, come here a moment.” The two boys wasted no time in complying. They seemed to perpetually be in a race with each other, while their older sister took her time descending the stairs. “Millie, darling, it’s all right,” Lexora said. “They won’t hurt us. They’re—our friends.” She shot a smile at Suhel, who returned it.
