Hi, Inna, and welcome to my application for Feglai! For the rest of the application I will be referring to Feglai as female, and by the nickname Fai. My name is Meep, and I'll be your pilot this evening. Unless you have an incredibly fancy chair, I do not imagine you have a seatbelt or a flotation device underneath your seat. So just remember to hold on tight while we take a little journey to late 17th century Denmark... And be sure to enjoy the view.
Before we begin, Let's get a little bit of housekeeping out of the way. This layout looks best in Google Chrome in a 1280x800 screen. Press F11 for optimum comfort. Now hold in that yawn because we're past the boring part, and let's get started!
Feglai will be living on my main account, claymation_girl, along with my two other permanent pets. She will reside there permanently. I really do enjoy color schemes, so while she is in my active spot I will have a signature to match her as well.
drag and drop!
I have always enjoyed rather simple customization, which is another reason why Fai's conversion status is a plus in my book. I will be customizing her with the Chilling Hallway Backround and the Dark Shimmery Lantern String Lights, which I plan on trading for. I have so many old rare NC items sitting around in my closet that could pick these items up in no time!
Fai will absolutely have a petpage!You can take a look at the future petpage I've created here.
I have also prepared a future petlookup for Fai here! I am definitely still learning how to code petlookups, so it has the potential to change and grow to become more professional-looking over time.
I have decided on a Crokabek for Fai's petpet, and a Bumbluz as a petpetpet. Their character designs are off to the right! A Crokabek seems only fitting both because he appears in her customization in the background, and he is rather crow-like. The Bumbluz is much like a blue-light casting firefly, and this fits with Fai's pseudo-magic exterior.
I adore Fai's character, so in the future you can absolutely expect her story to grow and change as she does. Since she's so much fun to draw, I am hoping to enter her many times in the Beauty Contest as well! Aside from this, I used to run a sort of comic based on my own pets through the Neopian Times on my old main, partialtobananabread. Since I switched mains a while back, I'd like to start this over with Orange, Fai, and Toasty in order to put a more lighthearted spin on all of their characters and to help their characters and relationships grow in a more simple medium.
My real name is Sophie, and I am a senior in high school. I live in rainy Oregon but am currently residing in California for an internship through a Musical Theatre company. I'm incredibly interested in pursuing technical theatre work through my life. I have aspirations to become a Stage Manager for a theater company once I get out of college! I'm gluten and dairy intolerant and most everybody knows by the pure level of excitement that I have when I find something that I can actually eat. In my free time, I play piano and guitar, dabble in songwriting, art, writing, and playwriting, and can make a mean batch of gluten free dairy free brownies.
in order of: main, lab 1, lab 2 (old main).
orange4444neo the UC Faerie Moehog
This was the first pet I ever adopted through an application process! Orange is my absolute baby and I pamper him more than I probably should. He is a deliverypig who grew up on a farm, then got into the postal services through his multiple mail deliveries from the farm to the post office. His story is whimsical and light, and I love that about it.
Toastmasters the Christmas Bori:
Toasty is the oldest pet of mine that I own. I remember when I got her I was so enthralled with having a real word pet. She was a yurble for the longest time, but once I got her character idea her current species and paint seems much more relevant. She is a teenager who works at a coffeehouse, occasionally transcending through different dimensions to live time out in storybooks. She goes on very chill adventures with the companions she meets along the way.
Fapre the uc Maraquan Gelert:
April has been a dream of mine for a long time. The first serious application I've ever made was for a UC Maraquan Gelert and I never got over them since that application. I was so fortunate to be gifted her from a very close friend! She is a Freshwater Dejomas, a species in which 3 animals have only ever been documented. She lives as a recluse in the Maproko ya Maji River, using her powers for good while unknowingly being searched for by the most sinister of scientists.
Starbits the Baby Lenny:
Starry has been another dream of mine, and as soon as I saw that name I just couldn't resist. Her story is the only one of my pets that takes place in Neopia. as a Baby Lenny, her parents disappeared long ago for unknown reasons. She heard the quote that everybody is made from tiny bits of stars, so she decided to reverse that process. She goes on an adventure around Neopia trying to find 'Starbits' so she can rearrange her former lost parents.
As cliche as it may sound, Feglai is the real reason that I have came back around this time. I had the itchings to create a new story and to spark the creative side of my brain once more, since it had gone stagnant for so long. As soon as I saw Fai, I knew that she was exactly the kind of pet that would give me the inspiration that I yearned for.
I have never been so engrossed in a character as I am for Fai. I love reading the history of 17th Century Denmark that her story is based off of, I love finding spells and creating some of my own from practical means to fuel her love of science into misunderstood magic powers, and most of all I love constructing the story in a style of writing that felt long forgotten after my years of AP Literature and Honors English Study. Writing fiction is truly where my heart lies, and Fai gives me an outlet for that, and it's all I could ever ask for in a pet.
Of course, going back to the more neopets-oriented side of the coin, Fai is absolutely gorgeous. The way that UC Darigan Aishas are designed is so regally majestic, while carrying an air of a hidden mischief as well. Her art is of course what first inspired my writing, and is one of the things I love most about her.
I cannot promise to come on to neopets every single day and shower Fai with gifts, but I can promise that I will love her and her character with my whole heart. With this carries the notion that she will stay in my mind; whether I'm thinking of ways to connect her story to outside resources or historical figures, ways how to continue her story tastefully, and just generally admiring the character that she has blossomed to become.
I believe that's the heart of caring for a pet anyways: Once it becomes more than just the pixels in your mind, you can be certain that they will travel with you much longer than even Neopets could hold them.
As a footnote, I'd love to thank the app chat for helping me to make this app the best it could be, and mainly just for putting up with my incessant 'does this look okay does that look okay' banter.
Lastly, I'd like to point you in the direction of Fai's Future Petpage. This is where the heart of my application lies and holds the true reason I applied for Fai in the first place!
Thank you and goodbye!
