Welcome

 
September 18, 2017

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.

On Neo

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.


Avatars

Ever 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.


Trophies

I 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).


Customization

I 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 Contests

One 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 Improvement

As 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.

Goal Summary

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.

Current Family

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.

Gifted Art

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!

Neofriends

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 Surath intimidated me. He had an amazing account and was so well respected. I forced myself onto one of his Bilge Dice boards and I actually thought he was a lot older than me. Turns out he isn't older or scarier than I originally thought. Turns out, in fact, that I love him so much it hurts. I talk to him every single day. And I don't just mean a quick 'Hey, how are you?'. I'm talking 5-10 hours of non-stop chatting. I don't know how either of us find time to do school work in all honesty, but we both are okay. I think we've bettered each other, in all our time of chatting, and I will always love him for that. We help each other out, when we hit low points, and I couldn't survive without him. I don't think I can really put into words how I really feel about him. My life revolves around him. I'm sad when we have to sleep or the internet isn't working. I'm sad we don't live in the same country and I can't see him every day after school. I'm sad there is useless distance between us by which we had no choice. I'm sad I can't give this guy the hugs I want to give him when he says the kindest things to me or he's having a bad day. I think he's such an incredibly talented writer (actually, talented at almost everything, he just doesn't acknowledge it).

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.
ANH Anh is one of the people I just love. I want to go see her and hang out with her and just chill. Couldn't meet a more awesome person. Ironically, I was terrified of Anh. She is AMAZING at graphics and coding, I thought she was going to be mean. Turns out, she's even nicer than I ever could have imagined. I feel like we're old best friends, that's how tight I think we are! I know she is going to be a great friend and we'll stay close for a long while.
MARYANN I feel like Maryann and I's friendship is the equivalent to twi-hards. Every time I see her, it's like we've just seen each other for the first time in weeks. Maryann is AMAZING. I have a hard time describing her because she is just so awesome. I simply love her to pieces. Also, she designs the most sensational cupcakes ever. Maryann is such an inspiration to me and just an all around amazing person. I'm very lucky to have someone like her in my life - someone who just cares about everyone, knows how to have fun and gives awesome advice when I need it. Love her!
RICO Rico is one of the nicest guys I know! His buttons are so perfect, it always makes me envious. I love getting the chance to talk to him because he's always great to be around. He never stops to help me fix my buttons ♥ I might have made him a bit obsessed with Draiks and customizing them, but at least now I have another Draik fanatic to gush to! He is my favourite guy to talk customization with because he's just as hardcore as I am.
FISH Fish and I have just recently become friends and she is AMAZING! She runs such awesome sites (Petticoat, Oolong, Roo and Velvet Underground) and she has one of the bubbliest personalities. She is simply adorable and always says the sweetest things that cheer me up. I feel like she's my partner in crime in running sites on Neo. Even when I don't talk to Fish for a while, things never change. What an awesome person!
GREG Greg used to REALLY intimidate me. He had one of the most impressive accounts I had ever seen on Neo. Then, he actually turned out to be this old, goofy softy who I've had such a great time befriending. I know he's not around anymore, but he always teased me about how emotional I got over this site and I have never laughed so hard with a guy. I love you tough guy. Happy to have this guy back so I can challenge him (and fail) in games/trophies.
KEN Ken, despite his super personable chatty nature, scared me when I first met him playing Keyquest. Then after a long period of not talking, we bonded over a bad moment in his life. Ever since, I have never felt so happy to call him one of my best friends. He is one of the first people I plan to meet in real life and I describe our friendship as hilarious Tyra emoticons and laughs. One of my fondest memories was trolling him with a fake RS. I cried I laughed so hard at his reactions. He is such an inspirational part of my life and always will be, despite his permasilence. He has given me so much (literally, if I tallied how much he is given me, many of you would throw up in disgust at his kindness), I will always be in debt to him. He has always been an amazing friend to me, so I hope that we can be friends for a long time. I love you so incredibly much Ken, forever and always.
WINTER OMG this girl is amazing. We met, ironically, as I helped her with a petpage application, then we began to do some character work, then I discovered her and I aren't too different. She is that friend I go to for any problem, on here or offline. I love her to pieces and I really think of her has this sister I never had. She has always given me much needed character advice and a good laugh when I'm down. Even though she's not around much, she's still amazing. I fangirl every time I see her on.

BLAKE Blake and I have had some hilarious offsite moments together, but on Neo, he was nothing but kind and out going. I miss him quite a bit. We met chatting on a special kind of game board in the AC and we bonded immediately. He is such a great guy, he 's an amazing friend who I hope will one day see this. I will never forget our calls and the time he opened birthday caps and got NY in FL when it was around 50+ caps.

Favourite Sites

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!
