Quote of the Week


Word to the wise--don't go into ranty monologues. It distracts you from such vital details like the fact that a certain Eyrie has just sprinkled some sleeping powder into your Islandberry Smoothie.


Unsung Neopian Heroes



While taking a few trips around Neopia, I decided to write some notes on some of the unsung workers, who diligently take the time to serve you and your neopets' enjoyment. Although it was impossible to include everyone, I chose five Neopians who seem to be taken for granted by many of us every day, but who never seem to complain or have a bad word to say about anybody, but instead diligently work away to make Neopia a better place for everyone to live. After all, without them, where would we be today?

Applesick



For thousands of years, throughout the history of Neopia, pets have been falling victim to the Malus domestica's awful children. Yes, my young neopets, I am referring to The Apple. The dangerous substance can be purchased and traded in almost every food market in Neopia. Even the Advent Calendar ventured to give out apples several days in a row.

"The Mystery of the Disappearing Socks" by mezvi_the_shnooky
Hilly heaved a sigh, stood up and looked over the socks laid out on the floor. There were no matches. Single socks simply spread out on the sunshine yellow floor.
