Pet Name: xx__Werelupe
This is a story about my beloved Neopet Werelupe. She is a grey Yurble, my absolute dreampet and source of great inspiration in drawing, writing stories and more. But it's also a homage to all grey pets, the most soulful Neopets in all Neopia:
It was a cloudy, rainy day, when Werelupe__xx (her friends call her Werelu) was born deep in the haunted Forest. Her mother was blue and her father was green. No one expected a grey daughter to be born! But of course, they loved her very much anyway. She also has a Brother called Beerenteufel. This means Berrydevil in another language. It's because he likes berries so much. And as we all know, behind every name is a story. Werelu's will be told now:
Werelu quickly grew up and became a charming little lady. You might ask yourself, why Werelu is called "Werelupe", even though she is a Yurble? Well, every time when her mother left the burrow for longer than usual, Werelupe got really upset. She couldn't help feeling like her mother left her and her brother Beerenteufel behind. So she started to howl and cry very loud like a Werelupe, so her mother would come back! Actually, that did work great, and her mother dashed home immediately every time she heard her. This is why she got the wonderful name Werelupe.
Even though she was grey, she was actually a really happy little Yurble. No one really could understand that. Everyone seemed to think grey Yurbles (or grey pets in general) must be very sad little creatures. But actually this isn't true. Werelu calls herself just a bit melancholic. She loves the rain, the mist, and the cloudy days so much, she prefers them even before sunny summer days! Her friends (which are coloured Yellow, Purple or even Skunk) couldn't understand that. If it's raining outside you can't do anything outside. But Werelu doesn't mind that. She loves to look outside the window and watch the rain fall down. That is what they call melancholy!
Melancholy... did you hear that word before? No? It's hard to explain, but imagine it like the feeling before a thunderstorm. Or before a warm rainshower in the summer. It's when the air is vibrating, the Lennies and Pteris are hiding in the Trees and anyone is in the same overwhelming mood. Or imagine it like looking outside the window and watch the raindrops fall down, on a warm but rainy summer day, onto a small ponds surface, while the bulrushes gently weigh in the wind... it's a very wonderful feeling actually, it makes you almost shivering pleasantly and sighing, right? Many Neopets don't like the rain or bad weather and find that very annoying. But not Werelu. Just because she is a thoughtful and sensible pet who likes to dream and lose herself in her thoughts, she isn't sorrowful! So, whoever thinks Werelu (or grey pets in general) is unhappy or even pathetic is mistaken, as I can promise.
This story about my beloved Werelu should be the Pet-Highlight, so that people are not constantly thinking grey pets are sad or unhappy.
If someone ever thinks that grey pets are sad or unhappy, they should remember the story of my beloved Neopet Werelupe. :)
