Quote of the Week


"Brightvale imports Lost Desert sand to make stained-glass windows. They've just raised the price on us, because apparently," he said, "there's a shortage." We stood silent for a moment, as the vast dunes of sand blew about us.


Dealing with Rabid Fans



With the third Altador Cup practically knocking at the front door, an air of excitement rises through the many lands of Neopia. Everyone, the loyal Darigan citizens in their Citadel, the lei-wearing Mystery Islanders, and even the galactic Grundo recovering from the fog of war, is preparing for Altador Cup III. Many Neopets and their owners are considering themselves fans of the Cup, but only a few can say that they are rabid about Yooyuball and the Altador Cup. It's important to identify these fans before they come out of nowhere and yell with the voice of an estranged opera singer...

Avoiding Getting Eaten



Far too often do Neopians get attacked by Kougras on the shores of Mystery Island, get hit by the Snowager's breath in Happy Valley, get stepped on by Monoceraptor in Tyrannia, burn their tongues with a hot cup of Borovan, or cut their fingers on the sharp edges of that copy of the Times.

"Our Way" by rainbow_mist_wave
The pound cages were dreary and the pets in them immediately set up a racket the moment she entered. The girl shivered and set to looking about shyly, moving forward slowly, following Cassandra down the hallway. The two passed pets of all ages and species and genders and colors. There were Lupes, howling at the top of their lungs; Aishas, perking their ears forward plaintively; Techos, glued to the back of their cages, staring at everyone warily.

Soon after she had first arrived, she had struck upon the idea of hosting an afternoon social. Devising a guest list and sending out invitations, she had waited with great anticipation for her intended guests to rsvp. It was with notable disappointment that she had received word that Fyora, the Faerie Queen, had been forced to send her regrets, but...

"The Uncool Life of Akats" by champ100543
Who cares about some silly job? An Orange Kyrii, privileged as he is, shouldn't have to get a job. That's what owners are for. "So... you're all going to get a job!" Chair finishes, clapping her hands together in excitement. From the look on his uncool face you can tell that Suni is really happy about this, but he tries to hide it with only a slight nod of acknowledgement. Sedgee starts to squeal happily, but one look at my revolted expression sure shuts her up fast...
