Pet Name: Sidnerella
"Sidnerella, would you PLEASE quiet down?"
As much as she hated being quiet, Sidnerella was an obedient Usul, and so in
due course, she put down her drumsticks and hopped off her drumstool. In
fairness, she had been playing for over 4 hours and everyone deserves a
little quiet time. Her brother, Chubby-Chappy, was particularly prone to
headaches. But as much as she loved her siblings, Sidnerella loved her drums
She remember the taunts she had recieved when she had first set her heart on
beating the skins.
"Are you kidding?" spluttered a rather unpleasant Skeith. "You're a girl!"
She scowled and ignored his taunts. His friend, an equally unpleasant Mynci
with an upturned nose screeched "Not only that, you're an.....Usul!" The two
burst out laughing, and Sidnerella walked away tearfully. She had only told
them because she knew they had lessons in music with the greatest music
teacher in Neopia Central.
She came back to me in tears.
"Honey, what's wrong?" I cooed, and offered her a tissue. SHe sniffed, and
explained her encounter with the bigger Neopets.
"Why do you want to learn the drums so much, Sid?" I asked.
"I have ever since I first walked past the Concert Hall that day with
MrCharlson. Remember, when you said Tyrannia was to dangerous for me to go
alone? I don't know who was playig but I could hear the drums and......."
she was gettign really worked up by this point. "But everyone says Usuls
can't play music because they are all cute and just collect usuki dolls and
get their hair done but I'm not like that at all." It was true. I doubted
that Sid had ever touched an Usuki, let alone had her hair done.
"Tell you what, Sid." I said "If you help me out around the house, I will
buy you a drumkit fo your own." The responce I got from this was Ecstatic.
She jumped around, squealing her thnkas at the top of her voice. I smiled,
and started making the tea, as MrCharlson was hungry. Again.
For the following month, Sid had been on fire, helping around everywhere she
could. She even tucked Chubby-Chappy into bed. The Home was spotless. I
decided she had deserved her drumkit.
The Next morning, while Sid was fast asleep (she was completely worn out
from all the chores she had been doing!), I crept out of the House with
MrCharlson to buy the kit. An old friend of mine who was once a drummer for
a band which failed to go anywhere after the lead singer, a techo, lost his
voice, had offered to sell me his drumkit. It was red, which was excellent
as that is my Siddy's favourite colour. Being a Skeith, MrCharlson helped me
carry the kit home, where Chubby-Chappy helped bring it into the basement.
Chubby is an excellent artist, so he painted a lovely motif of a heart with
two Usul pigtails on the bass drum. It looked fantastic. I went upstairs and
gently shook Sid awake. I led her to the basement.
When she saw the drumkit, she screamed. She went mad, hugging everyone and
laughing and crying leaping around. I explained that we couldn't afford a
teacher right now, but that I had bought a tech-yourself book.
In just 2 weeks, it was clear she didn't need a teacher anyway. She was a
natural. We heard her crashing along with all our old M*YNCI and Twisted
Roses records, perfectly in time. We couldn't believe how quickly she had
progressed. It just shows how Usuls can do anything if they set their mind
Right now, Sid is content with all she has. She just hopes there'll be some
more Usuls to take the stage out there.......
