Quote of the Week


Lost in the Haunted Woods: Check. Not acknowledging you're in trouble: Check. Talk about things you're afraid of: Check.


Why Jhudora is the Best



I know what you're thinking. "What kind of a crazy person would ever like Jhudora," or maybe, "This must have been a mistype. This person must have meant Illusen." Are you thinking these things? Because if you are, you are wrong, wrong, WRONG! Jhudora is the best! What, not convinced? I'll try to help you understand... First of all, Jhudora actually LIVES in Faerieland, unlike those deserters, Illusen and Taelia. I mean...

Faerie's Ruin Prize Shop



What do you pick? What should you spend neopoints on instead of plot points? While I can't help you much when it comes to picking gallery items and wearables (those you have to pick on your own, I'm afraid), I can help you with one huge aspect of the plot point store: turning your plot points into neopoints. The most important piece of advice I can give you here is do not, and I mean absolutely DO NOT use the Trading Post solely as...

Making Your Story Fly


How are you supposed to write a good story if you don't care what happens to your characters and you don't like the plot? You can't. Write a story that you want to write, and take that story wherever it needs to go to become a good story that you're interested in, whether you have to change your plans for the story or not.

"Got the snacks?" Fiona asked, and Jhudora popped up from behind the counter, holding up a large tray set with bowls of peanuts, cans of soda, and as a centerpiece, a large crystal bowl filled with mixed potato chips. "It's just the three of us," Von Roo said in a dry, menacing voice as he looked at the tray, and Jhudora nodded. "I know, I know," she said as she placed the tray on the poked table and sat down between them. "Pity," Fiona said in a musing voice. "Poker isn't quite..."

"Lady Sandstorm" by saphira_27
"...where she will remain." King Jazan the Fourth finished telling the story and stood, going to each of his twin desert Ixi's beds and tucking them in. "Now, good night, Caspar. Good night, Esmeralda." The little prince's eyes were already closed, but his sister was still wide-awake. "Daddy, is she under the earth until forever?" Nabile got up from her chair. "Forever and ever. The only power Lady Sandstorm has left in Neopia is to keep you from going to sleep if you keep talking, silly Aldie..."

"Card Quest" by dragon10044
"You're wrong if you think you can't do anything with a collection of Neodeck cards." The ends of Sil's scarf fluttered on the wind as the cloud Shoyru continued dealing out the cards on the table, spacing them so that the character featured on each card could be seen. "We'll need another player... hm..." Sil looked around, and saw a translucent head sink down under the cascading golden fountain. "Aster, is that you? You normally hang around the Dragonbuds when you're sneaking around..."
