Hi there! I'm Sam (or Amanda, depending how you know me). I'm now in my mid-twenties, but I've been on Neopets since I was a wee lass.

Favourite Book: Changer, by Jane Lindskold
Favourite Author: Also Jane Lindskold, but JD Robb is a close second. Ian Hamilton is quite good, also.
Favourite Neopet: Surprisingly not Draiks, Krawks or Hissis; Shoyrus are my first love, followed by Eyries and Zafaras (although Boris, Lutaris and Xweetoks deserve an honourable mention)

Neo-Hangouts: You'll find me on Farindol's boards, the AC, PC, or NC, or occasionally lurking on Charter
I have used many aliases in my time on Neopets. I guess I'd just get tired of an account, or cookie-grabbed, swindled, mis-reported and unfairly iced or just plain forgot my info to access it. You name it, it's happened.
You may have run into me before as silverfawx, karneewulf, toxxikk or tigran, or any number of other aliases, but I've always been Sam.
I've always been part of one kind of adoption guild or another. I believe my first guild was Painted Pets Adoption House. Its current leader has been a good friend to me, although drama reared its ugly head, and I've left PPAH.
Eventually I found myself at the doorstep of emrld, and The Adoption Agency (TAC). I've met so many wonderful people through that guild, and when I was given the reins, I was glad to take them to Farindol (with a pitstop as TAP/TAH). Three mergers later, Farindol has become a mosaic of PPP'ers, PPAH'ers, and FTW'ers in addition to its core group.
Farindol's morphed many times over the years... merging, moving, restarting... most recently, Farindol's grown quiet as many of its members have moved on from Neopets. I can't quite bring myself to let it go.
For the time being, my efforts will go into The Adoption Quilt (Amilu Adoptions) where my friends and I foster, zap and find homes for pets from the pound.
Farindol will be revitalized. It's just a matter of when, and finding the right people to help me do so.
I currently occupy my time
saving spending neopoints on my various goals, and/or NC trading. You wouldn't figure it'd be so addictive, but I guess that's just the personality I have. =S
I will occasionally provide graphics for people if they ask... depends how busy I am. Feel free to send me a neomail. I don't bite (usually).
Note: Magma time at 4:50~ish NST?
Everyone needs something to work towards, especially on Neopets. It keeps me interested. I have no lofty ideas that I'll complete everything below in a week (much less a year), but it doesn't hurt to have something that can remind me of what it is I'm trying to accomplish.

...and a partridge in a pear tree!
The following avatars are the ones that remain that I have a chance to obtain (however slim) to complete my collection. There are quite a few I never expect to see, but they're listed here for good form, anyway.
Below are the avatars I have been able to obtain thus far (with a little blood, sweat and tears -- but mostly lots of help from others). The most recent acquisitions are at the bottom of the list. Thank you to those that helped!
These lists were generated using either Jellyneo or Dress to Impress.
Well, it seems this list is a little too large for here, so I've moved it to Zelphorea's Petpage! It's best it lives with my tradelists and such anyways...
These are the wearables of interest that are available to purchase with plain 'ol neopoints.

My normal tradelist has moved to Zelphorea's petpage, because I'm tired of feeling like a criminal for not wanting to trade some of my items. -_-;
Just a little list of Premium Collectible rewards I've amassed, since they started handing them out in Y15.

The Inseparable Closet
These are some of my favourite closet items, and while they're not exactly worth the most, I find I'd miss them dearly from my closet.
