Quote of the Week


I think of those doughnutfruits or neggs that are so lonely, wondering if someone will ever eat them. It's cruel to let a lovely treat go to waste and let them feel so... blue.


Proper Petpet Care



Abominable Snowballs are some of Neopia's most popular petpets. Few people actually realize how high maintenance these petpets are, though, so every year hundreds of these adorable creatures are abandoned. This article is to help you make an informed decision about whether you are one of the special neopians who can take care of these petpets. We will look at how to tell if an Abominable Snowball is right for you, the differences in the various colors, their habitat, food, and toys, along with tricks you can teach them and even the hazards of owning one...

Beat Bumble Beams



A simple game to get your head around: drop robot petpets into moving bins via a combination of levers. "I can do that, simples!" most people exclaim, to find that the simplicity of design was hiding a game that required far more precision and strategy than they possessed. This was certainly the experience of one of your authors (htamale – hi!). In the tried and tested thinking of many, I abandoned the game to find something easier.

The same thoughts had tormented...

"A Contemplation on the Life of a Baby Pet" by fiddolin
All things considered, Mikey really did take it all quite well. And really, it's perfectly fine for an owner to break down and cry every once in a while. Even the tough, macho ones like Mikey. Really. I was feeling a little bad for him, though. I hoped his friends wouldn't give him too hard of a time about suddenly having a pretty little baby for a pet. I knew that Mikey would repaint me just as soon...

"The Dare" by i_heart_xweetoks
The red Xweetok crept forward until the gypsies sitting around the fire became visible. The watcher stared at the twig on the path as if trying to move it through sheer power of will. But the watcher's powers didn't extend that far, and the twig stayed put. The red Xweetok stepped on it, alerting the gypsies to her presence. Now the gypsies were beckoning to Sahrani. Don't go! thought the watcher. Don't...
