Quote of the Week

If you've got to put your foot in your mouth, you might as well enjoy it.

Feel the Love

On Valentine's Day, one of the most popular things to do is to show your friends on Neopets how much you love being their friend. One of the most popular traditions is to send someone a Valentine, a special name for a letter derived from the name of this date. However, many people love nothing more than receiving a little trinket from a friend that says how much their friendship is cherished. This Valentine's Day, you may want to do the same; it only takes a short amount of time to send over a small gift to a friend. But wait! Here's the problem: you don't know what to buy...

Lunar Festival Fun

Shenkuu is a beautiful land of exotic food, games, and Neopians. One of the things that Shenkuu prides itself is on is its dedication to tradition, and festivals are no exception. Since its beginning, the Shenkuu Lunar Festival has been one of my favourite celebrations, simply for its impeccable beauty! Those living in Shenkuu take considerable care to decorate, cook for, and truly celebrate this auspicious occasion! So why not join in the activities? If you're not able to take the trip out to see the event first hand, here are some ways that you can have a beautiful Lunar Festival...

And further, I say that they must demonstrate their love for me this year by making and sending me Valentines..."

"Trip to Turmaculus" by simplyalice
The Nuk bleated and reared up excitedly, his tiny black hooves shining slightly in the bright sun, then he bolted forward in a quick bound. He bleated happily again and bounced merrily around the lush field that waved slightly in the breeze. Trekker was barely taller than the fresh spring field as he bounced through the field, staying no more than twenty feet in front of Vanhail and occasionally doubling back to fling himself playfully into...

"The Tale of the Odd Valentine" by dragonstorm_75
A broken chair was dragged into the hall, its cushions tearing apart in some places to reveal the hidden springs. In the chair sat an ambiguous form, blue and translucent, gripping the arms of the chair with its formless limbs. Other than the crackling hisses and snaps of the fire, and the pitter patter of rain outside with the occasional thunder, there was a comfortable silence. "I am alone..."
