Quote of the Week


The song was an old one; something he had written long ago. It told a tale of happiness, friendship, fate and regret. In his mind, the Eyrie saw everything the melody spoke of. He didn't want to, but his brain couldn't forget.


Should Retired Avatars Return?



By retired avatars, I don't mean plot or war avatars that were clearly meant to be earned once and never again, like the Darigan Darkling avatar. I mean avatars like the Plushie Nova or Coco Roller avatars, which were part of the games and giveaways on this site, but then disappeared and never came back. I was pleasantly intrigued by this subject, and decided to research the avatars I wish could be brought back, even though the chances of that happening are quite rare. But a person can dream...

Maraquan Pets: Fishy Friends



Maraquan pets, our wet and wonderful friends coming from a much damper section of Neopia! These guys and gals are not your average neopets and are only found in and around water, but that is just about their only limitation; they are not just limited to Maraqua, but rather can be found in rivers, lakes, streams, and seas all across Neopia! Maraquan pets are unique among pets, requiring a particular type of care that other pets simply don't need, but it's certainly worth it to have these finned-fellows in our lives!

But other times, you feel terrible, heart-crushing guilt that you would ever do such a thing, and you cannot pull yourself out of that moment in your mind. It lasts for weeks, months, years, and it just won't stop. Your life now revolves around...

"But I Made Sacrifices" by symbolism
You are new to this. Your last rejection letter hit you hard. It is not that you're not used to rejection, it has happened to you before, for every reason from there simply wasn't any room for your story to the fact that you forgot to specify that your protagonist's friend was a green Kau (you did mention that she was green, though). This rejection aimed right for the ego, seemed to shrug at your very identity...

"Likeminded" by sima232005
Garven Hale was leaning against the railing of one of the hotel's numerous balconies when he heard the door slide open. He didn't turn, his mood still foul from the loss to Tyrannia. Wasn't even really a loss, more like a complete thrashing. His fingers tightened on the railing, his tail beating back in forth in agitation. He felt someone lean against the railing beside him and turned to look, opening his mouth to...
