This page basically is a mismatch of stuff Vanessa wanted you guys to see. The status of her current stories, her Goals, her Wishlist, etc. Please take a look around! Sure, it might waste five minutes of your life, but it might be worth it. ;)
Currently Working On
Status: Writing Part 3/???
I've had a really busy semester, so this is just in the initial stages! But it involves a family with missing parents and a boy trying to take care of his sister who has suddenly stopped talking. And gypsies. And sand castle games. And most likely some magic, since I love that kind of stuff. Hopefully it works out!
Meepit Oaks Sanatorium: Patient 600
This is hopefully for the 600th issue of the NT! It's about a psychiatrist and an eccentric patient writing "600"s all over the walls. I just submitted it so hopefully it's held over soon!
Creating the Themed Neohome of Your Dreams
I had the sudden urge to write an article since I've recently fallen in love making a Jhudora-themed neohome on my side account. I think I'll submit it soon, but after Patient 600 is held over *crossing fingers*

The second half of her wishlist is devoted to her GALLERY which is a collection of items that all have something to do with the stories she has in the Neopian Times.
The list is constantly changing, but vanessa wants to thanks everyone who has already donated items to her. She thinks you all rock. :)
I created this wishlist automatically at Jellyneo's Item Database! Check it out to make your own!
This was the first Lenny Conundrum that actually looked somewhat do-able to vanessa1357924680 and was pretty much this: get these weird shapes with random letters on them to make sense and then answer the question. So, she printed it out, cut out each individual piece, and started putting the puzzle together. Although her resulting shape wasn't the beautiful square pictured in the SOLUTION, vanessa did manage to see the question: What team won the Altador Cup last year?, and answered it correctly: Haunted Woods! Unfortunately for her, a lot of other Neopians figured it out as well... and she only got a small neopoint prize, but it at least proved that winning one was semi-plausible!
This next one vanessa found really, really easy for some odd reason. Apparently you're in a secret cave in the Lost Desert (*hint, hint*) when you find some coins, drop them, and they spell out a Neopian word. It didn't take long for her to spot the answer: Qasalan, though it did take her a while to actually spell the word correctly (she was quite sure there was a "u" in it somewhere, but whatever...) However, she wasn't fast enough because the first 250 neopians had already answered it, leaving vanessa with, once again, a small neopoint prize... Oh well; she's getting closer at least! Click HERE for the question and solution!
Yay for math! Well, at least for vanessa... she's a tad weird like that, liking math and all. This next CONUNDRUM was a math problem, and strangely enough, it didn't need some long complicated formula to figure out: just a calculator and three minutes! Vanessa simply figured out the digital sum of this weird-looking math problem that really wasn't so weird and got a nice, friendly answer: 8. And to make things even better, vanessa finally got her answer in as one of the first 250. YAY! So, besides collecting the usual small neopoint prize, she also got a cool Jazzmosis Grarrl Plushie and a spiffy silver Lenny Conundrum trophy for her lookup!
This latest PUZZLE involved words that were stated in a pattern around the Neopia. Normally vanessa ignores these, but after typing one of the words in the search bar and discovering that it was a TCG card, she figured the pattern out and came out with the correct answer: poogle... as did 5019 other people. But as it dealt with numerical patterns, it was a new type of win for her and vanessa still feels it deserves a spot right here. :)
When vanessa saw this QUESTION, she thought for a moment that it was too good to be true: What do you get when you multiply six by nine? But trusting her elemetary school math abilities, she entered 54 and was right! However, an amazing 17,512 people seemed to have gotten that answer as well, giving vanessa only 115 neopoints. Despite this, it was technically a win, which is why it's listed here!
Vanessa entered this PUZZLE on a complete whim, randomly and correctly guessing the correct neopet speicies as an answer: Xweetok. Completely random, yet completely right. And although she wasn't one of the first to get it, she did get a decent prize of 988 neopoints!
This CONUNDRUM answer was mainly based on luck, although Vanessa used a slight bit of common sense. The question was which answer was the third most popular the previous week, in the 300th Lenny Conundrum. Vanessa took a wild guess of 300 and was correct! And although she wasn't one of the first to answer, only 570 people got the answer right, giving her 3509 neopoints! Not bad for a guess, huh?
In this PUZZLE, a scrambled mass of letters was presented and had to be unscrambled. Lucky for vanessa, the Daily Dare was going on and allowed her to realize the answer almost instantly: Aristotle A Avinroo. Unfortunately, it was too late to be in the top 250, but she did get some neopoints for her efforts!
This QUESTION was a good old math problem that vanessa solved in a matter of minutes. She imputed her answer, 515, and it was right! However, a lot of others got it right too, and she was too late to get in the top 250. *snap*
Although it was late in the week, vanessa attempted this PUZZLE once she realized that the true question was hidden in the source code. But of course, it wasn't that simple as she was led on a wild goose chase until she finally got the answer: 2018. She wasn't in the top 250, but she was proud that she got it in the end!
Wow. O_O Vanessa actually won the first RANDOM CONTEST she entered-- and first place at that! It involved writing a funny neopet-themed limerick, and after a bit of inspiration from the New Features page, she entitled her poem "Space Delicacies." Sure enough, she was one of the ten lucky first place winners, giving her 10,000 np, a Rolltop Desk, the coveted trophy, and...
