How fitting that since I lost my account May 2016, I receive it again shortly before my birthday in September. Maybe I have some birthday luck with TNT! Needless to say, I lost a lot from the hack, but was luckily spared with my NC and pets.
Heavily under construction for the time being.

I found this site at age 9, when my friend in elementary school told me about it. I played so much when I was little, participating in the Meridell vs. Darigan war. I played off and on for the past 10 years, but trubiekatie is by far my most impressive account. This page just shows what I like to do on Neo.
AvatarsEver since they released avatars for participation in the Meridell vs. Darigan war, I have been collecting. Mind you, back then, avatars were released so frequently. I even had Petpetsitter and Freaky Factory - I guess getting older didn't help with those two! I do consider myself an avid collector, since I am constantly trying to get more that I'm missing. You can see the ones I'm missing in my goals section.
TrophiesI actually didn't really 'try' for trophies until I met Greg and Surath. They had over 100 game trophies each, so it made me quite envious. After their awesome advice and help, I was able to get over 40 for myself. I honestly believe if they didn't motivate me, I'd have way less and I wouldn't be as knowledgable. I get most of my flash-game trophies on Reset Day (the 1st of every month).
CustomizationI absolutely love trading NC and buying NP wearables for my pets. I got into customization as soon as I found out it existed and I have spent way too much on NC (I don't want to say). Since then, I've been trying to conserve how much NC I buy and limit it to items I really want. My favourite item that I own is my Altadorian Wig! You can see my tradelist here.
Writing ContestsOne of my favourite pastimes on Neo is to work on their writing contests - namely, poetry contest and Neopian Times. I do enter the Caption Contest infrequently (with the hopes of being selected for the avatar round). I find writing poetry pretty mindless and a great source of NP for me, while Neopian Times is both writing articles and drawing.
Pet ImprovementAs an owner with many permanent pets, I am always working on improving them. This includes entering the Beauty Contest, reading, feeding gourmets and drawing. Some pets get stories and characters (/~Remind, /~Katniss), while others are my customizing pets.
This is my way of tracking how I'm doing with accomplishing my overall goals. Dark grey goals are things that are completed, whereas light grey goals are something that I am working on.

This is my portal page for all my pets, with a brief checklist of what to do, their history/character, needed items and links to their lookups and/or petpages. Feel free to browse around!
Arayla (Arr-ehh-la)Arayla was the result of a trade because I love desert Draiks so much. She is merely meant for customizing and will not have a character. My hope would be for her to win the Customization Spotlight, but I do not have high hopes for that! If you ever have a great customization idea for her, don't hesitate to mail me or make a suggestion!
Dividant (Divide-ant)Dividant was my first morphed Draik and probably my favourite colour, besides Mereda. As my resident battledome pet, I am training her in the hopes she will one day be 1000HSD. Her character is a music box dancer, trapped in the darkness of the box, only to be freed with the crank of a key. Her name is an uncommon real word, meaning 'different' or 'distinct'.
Katniss (Cat-niss)Katniss is my second adopted Draik, thank you (x a million) to Kido. She is going to be based solely on the Hunger Games series, but with more detailed placed on her childhood. I've taken an angle that she was both born into her role as the rebel leader and given the best opportunity. Katniss is currently undergoing a major revamp, in terms of her petpage and lookup.
Kohena (Ko-n-ahh)Kohena was the result of an extremely kind gift from my best neofriend Surath, who bought her paint brush, Draik egg and the foreground. Her character is still in the works (since she does not have a character petpage), but I wanted her to work in a garden. Doing what though, is still a thought. She will permanently hold The Draik Realm and will forever reside on turbulous, which has been deemed my Ladies account.
Mellra (Mel-rahh)Mellra was my 20th birthday present from Surath!! Elise helped me with the name, which I think is stunning. I was so shocked, but so grateful to add another wonderful addition to my family. I have not decided on a quasi character yet, but she does host my button request site Oasis! I loved rainbow Draiks and this customization was the reason I wanted this Draik in particular. I absolutely love all the colours together.
Mereda (Mere-ee-dahh)Mereda was a wonderful Christmas gift from Ken. She is my siren character - luring men to fulfill her loneliness from a former lover gone astray. She appears to these men's desires, but converts them to her merpeople. When they are no longer of use, she casts them aside.
Her name is a play on the word 'mer', French for 'sea'.
Nahara (nah-harr-ahh)Nahara is the first UC pet I ever was able to call my own, thank you kindly to my former best friend, Ken. When he quit, Nahara found home with me. He is a bustling, high-class lawyer with insomnia. His medication causes vivid dreams with an odd side effect. He works with Remind to try and solve her problems, while forgetting about his own. He tends to be aloof and not around frequently.
Remind (Re-mind)Remind was the first pet I ever applied for and was chosen to adopt (thank you Chia!). Her initial character (which was based off Inception) was in the works for a while before I actually adopted her. Her character now works with Nahara. The three are select few people in the world that can dream share, where one individual can join in another person's dream. Together, they work to help one another out. The week of May 4th, 2012, Remind placed 1st in the Draik category of the Beauty Contest.
This is my list of pets I am currently working to saving, trading or applying for! For the higher tied UCs, I am currently offering Juisnei the UC Plushie Shoyru.

I wanted to admire all the art I've collected for my pets over the years. A massive thank you to all of those that have gifted me art - I really do appreciate at it!
Meet my absolute divine friends from Neo! Some no longer are around the site (the former), but that doesn't mean they haven't left an impression on my life. These people make me laugh, cry and have given me more than I can ever express in words. I've really made some friends for life on this site and I hope that I will be able to meet some of them in the real world! I love you all so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Surath, to me, is that person in your life that is a constant. He is always going to be my friend, whether he likes it or not. He's that guy I run to when I get 100% on a test or when I am crying my eyes out. I honestly cannot imagine my life without him. He's like breathing to me- so needed and vital to the enjoyment of my life. I know it sounds so mushy, but I honestly don't care. It's how I feel when I think of him. I've never been so happy to call someone my best friend in the world, despite the miles between us. We do our best to get around this. Surath, I love you so much. I think more than you know and more than I can say. I worry about you and care about you, when perhaps you forget this. Just know I'm always here for you, and I will be till the end of time.
These sites are my bread and butter - I would be utterly lost without them! They give me inspiration, help and ideas. Some I use more than others, while some I simply admire. You should definitely check these out and bookmark them!
