After RainAfter Rain is a directory listing all of the cool sites I've come across during my days on Neopets. Take a look around, visit the sites, and let me know what you think! Also, if you know of a site that deserves to be listed here, let me know and I'll add it. Enjoy!
UpdatesJanuary 1, 2013: Happy New Years! I've been inspired by many listed sites that have come out of hiatus to, after a somewhat long hiatus myself, make After Rain active again. I've changed the site lookup and am updating the content as we speak. Hopefully, by the end of the week, this site will be up and running again!
Featured SiteI've decided to do a new bit here where every month I showcase a site I feel provides exceptional quality work. Feel free to nominate a site you feel deserves the honor!
Featured Site: Coming soon!
PremadesHere, you will find sites that provide premade pages for you, whether it be userlookups, petlookups, petpages, shop/ gallery layouts, or a combination of all four. I encourage you to use the content on these sites, but be sure to credit!
The SitesAutumn Breezes: Autumn Breezes has a very unique approach to userlookups- making ones that match your avatar. In addition, there are also userlookups that match your pets, including background-themed lookups.
Cib's Premades: Cib's Premades contains a lot of simple userlookups. They are easily customizable, assuming you don't like one of the numerous ones already created. Overall, this site contains many cute userlookups!
Eight Is Even: Eight is Even has lots of cool userlookups and pet pages. *drools over Glee- Don't Stop Believin' and Beauty and the Beast userlookups* There are some very cute pixels, and the shields are adorable!
Foomanshu: Foomanshu has some cool userlookups. They also have numerous insparational icons, very pretty banners, adorable pixels/scribbles/vectors, some cute fake avatars, and many unique and well-made shields.

Raindrop: Raindrop has many extremely well-made premade userlooups. They are also quite easy to edit, should the need ever strike your fancy.
Sparkle: Sparkle has a wide variety of userlookups, all of which are very well-made. Also, I absolutely adore the pet lookups.
Squibbitive: Squibbitive (gosh, that's hard to spell) offers cute premades. The premades are offered in two forms- userlookups and pet lookups. This means that you can find a lookup for your pet that will match yours. How cute!
Sugary Premades: Sugary Premades has lots of fun, colorful userlookups. The pet pages are extremely easy to edit, as well as the pet lookups and the shop/gallery layouts.
That Kills Me: That Kills Me specializes in pet page skeletons. They provide the coding, and you change the colors. I'm currently using one of these layouts for my About Me page.
The Magic of Disney: While the page takes a long time to load, it's definately worth it. The Magic of Disney specializes in everything Disney- lookups, pet pages, shields, etc.
Vibe: Vibe has many fancy pet page layouts, some offered in various color schemes. For those of you who are coding savvy, there are a good number of skeletons on this site. Also, the list of site names is fantastic! *pokes home page*
GuidesHere, you will find sites that provide guides explaining various aspects of Neopets. I encourage you to visit these sites and learn a bit from them!
The SitesCSS for You: CSS for You is a must-look-at guide to anyone who is new to CSS and coding in general. This guide shows you how to do simple things, such as italicizing your font, as well as more complex things, such as removing content modules from your userlookup.
Faerie Bubbles Guide: This is a great guide for those of you that are trying to get the Faerie Bubbles avatar. It has a walkthrough of every level, complete with screenshots.
Sunnyneo: This is an amazing site (off of Neopets) that has great guides, premades, site hints, and more!
GraphicsHere, you will find sites that provide free-use graphics for you to use. I encourage you to use the content on these sites, but be sure to credit!
The Sites49 Days: 49 Days has lots of cool icons that are inspired by everything from sweets to cute kittens. The banners are very fancy.
Antize's Meeping: This site is for those of us who love Meepits, but can't buy one due to lack of funds. The Meepits are based off of many things, including painted pets, seasons, and more!
Beyond the Batter: Formerly ML's Cupcakes, Beyond the Batter is a wonderful site where you can request cupcakes and lollipops. Or, you can use one of the many premade ones. Either way, this site is sure to satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth.
Flamboyance: Flamboyance has cute pixels, and yummy looking icons. The toyboxes are a really cool idea, and the vectors make me hungry. The backgrounds are simple, but nice.
Forsaken: I love this site so much! The owner made me some cute polaroids for Twinkle_Toes_a2010, in addition to my "Link Back" button. Her backgrounds are really cute, and all of the work that she does is outstanding!
Glow: Glow has many premade banners. They also do semi-custom banners, which are very cool. I had one done for me a few months ago, and it was very nice.
Nature's Way: Nature's Way is owned by the same user as One of a Kind, and offers many cute pixels. The site follows a unique storyline as you look around at all of the different pages.
One of a Kind: One of a Kind has simple yet pretty backgrounds. The banners are well-done and the resources are useful. However, my favorite part of this site may be the icons- they're adorable. This site is a must-visit for all Danboard fans!
Pastry Pixels: Pastry Pixels may just be my favorite pixel site on Neopets! This site has so many cute pixels, scribbles, vectors, and more! The pixel dolls are very fun to edit, as well as the ice cream bases. The pixel pets are adorable. There are also many site resources, and even a fun game!
Sari's Arts: Sari's Arts is filled to the brim with cute free use arts, userlookups, and backgrouds! One of the lookup styles won the Userlookup Contest!
Stellar Shields: Stellar Shields has many adorable shields! There are many different themes, each theme with many shields in it. Most of them are either animated or glitter shields, and all are very well made.
Tea Cake Backgrounds: This site has many simple, yet cute, backgrounds. It also has backgrounds based on food and other real world items, such as Mario or Pokemon.
Tearoom: Tearoom has many adorable and well-made pixels. I love the Adventure Time pixels! Also, this site features cute backgrounds and "doodlies," a cross between a scribble and a CG. Everything here is very cute!
The Ginger Bread House: The Ginger Bread House offers users many cute backgrounds featuring items such as, gingerbread men, ice cream, and clouds. There are also tiny Draik and Kacheek adoptables.
Zorr's Adoptables: Zorr's Adoptables features many cute pixel pets. This site also has many characters from various Orange Box games, which I absolutely love! (Companion Cube, here I come!)
