About Gexcor and Denjin : It started on November 12th 2000, evening I believe.
I stopped by the Pet Creation Developmentation Registration Station. A quaint Aisha kindly explained the way that pets can be created and taken care of in this world. After her tutorial I walked into the office and carefully studied all the pets in order. Tatsus and Fuzios, creatures of yesteryear were part of the selections. Pteris, Chombys, and Meercas weren't even a distant thought at the time. I looked over the Shoyrus, and Bloomaroos, measured up the Skeiths and Grarrls, and laughed at the Bruce, (For he was an actual person with a thick mustache). Nothing really tempted my interest. Yet.
One Neopet managed to stand out from the rest. It was lizard, and it was a gecko. It had a kind face, and an agile body. It loved to laugh. It had a cool name. It was the Techo. I knew exactly what I had to bring into Neopia. I named him Gexcor, and excitedly I rushed through his creation. He was green, and he was a HE, and so forth and so on, and. uh oh.
I accidentally left the world.
Frantically, I re-entered Neopia and tried to complete the creation process. Seeing that I didn't have a newborn techo sitting in the hatchery, I tried to create him again. To my utter horror, his name was already taken. I was devastated. I wanted so bad to have a Techo named Gexcor so I could enjoy this interesting new world called Neopets. In my haste, I brought to the world another Techo of same color and sex. his name would be Denjin. When I got back outside to receive my pet, I had a very interesting surprise waiting for me.
Staring at me were two very young, and very excited techos.
Shocked, and relieved at the same time, I took a deep breath, and led each baby techo by the hand into this strange new world. This world called Neopia.
Through sheer determination and patience, I raised my boys equally and fairly. But to my surprise, they began to have their own separate personalities. Gexcor would often run out after his studies to skateboard, or hit the waves. Whereas after Denjin's classes, he would go over to the training school to learn the martial arts under Ryshu the Nimmo. These twins started finding themselves and started experimenting with their interests. Before I knew it, Denjin was packing up to defend the villagers of Tyrannia, whilst Gexcor had saved up enough money to start up his very own surf shop. They had grown up so fast.
Needless to say, we've had a lot of fantastic adventures, ranging from Gexcor's terrible lab ray metamorphosis into a Lenny, to Denjin's paintbrush identity crisis, (First he was green, then red, then spotted, then a Meerca, then a mutant, then yellow spotted, and then stars!) Finally, our life in poverty after the Neodaq crashed, leaving us at the mercy of the Soup Fairy. We're still going to have great adventures and although my boys are extremely different in hobbies and attitude, I've never seen a stronger bond of kinship between brothers. They are there for each other, as I am for them.
For Techo-tastic day, I honor my boys- Gexcor and Denjin, and I'm proud at what they've become within their first year. I also honor all Techos and their owners that are out there now! Follow the way of the Techo!
