Welcome!


Slipping between the pink marble pillars and deep-set mahogany bookshelves, you weave your way through the most massive library you've ever seen. The stacks tower higher than the eye can see. Faerie pets of all shape and size are calmly flying up a down, removing and re-shelving books. Their rapid accessions and descents make them look like brightly dyed leaves. You swallow your dizziness and push on.
There is a gold and faerie dust embossed business card in your hand. "Sophinae De Lanche," it reads. "Scholar of the Royal Academy of Faerie Magics, Earth Faerie Magic Specialist." Her office is supposed to be around here somewhere. Clinging to the wall, you work your way to the back of the library. There you find five doors. One has a pictogram of a leaf engraved into its heavy wood. You hesitate, but having nothing to loose, knock solidly.
There is silence. But as you are about to leave, you hear a shuffling sound from within. You knock again.
The shuffling becomes louder. "Come in," the voice is more high pitched and girlish than you would expect from a 'scholar.
You barely open the door when the voice continues in a jumbled rush. "Welcome to the Faerieland Royal Library my name is Sophinae De Lanche how may I help you?" A small, slightly round faerie wocky is, well, hovering over her desk. She has a book in one hand and a piece of chalk in the other. two more books hover in the air beside her, surrounded by purple light.
Faerie magic, you think to yourself. And indeed, the books seem to circle her and come within reading distance as she needs. They gently float aside as she reaches out to the already-covered chalk board, adding more pictographs to what looks to you like jumbled lines of nonsense.
Unsure of what to do, you stare at the dizzying writing until she finishes and, exhaling sharply, lights down on her chair. She pulls out a few pieces of paper and starts to read them. You're shocked by her coldness. You'd heard stories of her kindness, not rudeness. Is she really just ignoring you? Not entirely. You catch her stealing glances at you over the top of her current sheet. "Well, naturally you're looking for a book." She says as she reads. "It's likely a rare one too, because that's all we've got here." You watch her silently. When you don't answer, the wocky, who you assume to be Sophinae, stiffens. her face hardens and she puts the papers down. "You're not here about a book," she mumbles. Anger and fear flash in her eyes. "If you've no other business than to unnerve me, then the guards will escort you out.
She reaches for a frayed scroll with narrowed eyes. You hold up her business card. "I just wanted to meet you," you say quickly.
Sophinae relaxes a little. "Where did you get that?"
You tell her that you're interested in applying to become a student. Sophinae looks torn for a moment, but gives in. She collapses into her chair and motions for you to take a seat as well. "Sweetie," she purrs. Her voice softens and deepens. "You've picked a horrible time to apply." You ask what she means. She looks at you sadly, tiredly. "Xandra."





About Me



Whoo, I'm tired!

I don't normally have much time to chat; this is the first afternoon I've had free in months. After the whole incident with Xandra, Fyora's kept me busy and on my toes. After all, I'm a student of faerie magic under much the same conditions as Xandra. There are a lot of us actually, and we're all being hassled, by all of Neopia no less, over the Faerie's Ruin. Well, we knew something was fishy when her library card was blank for a whole two weeks. But who'd call that evidence? Who'd listen the second-best student's worried spiel?
Not King Altador.
Not King Jazan.
Not a single King or Queen in all of Neopia, as it turned out. And yet we still found ways to help. Did you think that Fyora pulled the spell that saved Hanso out of her pants? She doesn't wear pants. And anyways, I found the spell and all the students worked to decypher it.
And in addition to that, guess who's working on Xandra's "rehabilitation?" Not Fyora. We students are, and as long as it's left that way, she's not getting better again for forever and a day, at the very least. It's almost frightening, really, to see how much people hate us after we've done so much to help. Last week one of the other girls, Amanda, got a note on her desk telling her to leave Faerieland for her own safety. She left yesterday.
How dare they judge us? All of them, every Neopian, I can almost feel them looking over my shoulder! I study magic under Queen Fyora. I work at the Royal Library. That does NOT mean that I want to take over the world!
I've received my fair share of threats, but I'm not leaving. I'm not giving in to these... these... random acts of ignorance! I love my studies more than that. If I've got to suffer for my knowledge then fine! I've worked late nights, I've pulled all-nighters, and I've studied until I fell asleep at my books. If these common idiots think that they are more threatening than Jennumara's Greater Suppression Spell, then they've never tried to cast it.

Well, I do like to read very much.

I just got my Faerieland IQ exam back yesterday, and I scored a 1072. It's not bad I suppose, but I know that I'm not a genius. I mean, when it comes down to it, having read 305 books doesn't amount to much. We've had Neopians come to the library looking for books who have read thousands of books! And yet, what're they doing with that knowledge? Finding more books.
I may not know a million languages (only seven, excluding ancient Maraquan and Sakhmettian) or have memorized all of Neopia's botany by scientific name (I've only got Faerieland and Shenkuu flora down so far), but I'm making good use of what I do know.
You see, no matter how many more books our visitors have read, I'm the one sitting at this desk as a student of Fyora.

My history is quite textbook.

I grew up a privileged child, and I don't just mean that I was better of than my brother Xederic was before we took him in. I was my Selli's first pet, and she never forgot it.
If anything, she tries to spoil me. It's getting sort of annoying, really. I mean, look at this dress! It's so frilly and poofy and, well, girly! I like girly clothing, but Selli takes it to an unprecedented extreme. *sigh* She's having trouble accepting that I'm not her little girl anymore.





Earth Faerie Magic



I study Earth Faerie magic. D-don't you look at me like that! This isn't fat; it's FLUFF! And-and- it's not the magic of how your pets get fat anyways! There's more to Earth Faerie magic than that. But I bet that no one ever told you that... and you certainly didn't take the time to find out!

No, I'm not blaming you. I hated Earth Faerie magic- EFM for short- when I started studying magic. In my introductory classes, the theory was hardly useful and nearly vulgar. Then I stumbled across a few advanced tomes and realized how much more there was to EFM... much more than I'd learned in class! There are energy-reversal spells that work on a larger scale than was ever thought possible, rooting spells that can't be broken by the most potent magic, parasite curses that slowly sap their victims, and oh! I found more than I'd ever learn in my classes, and I immediately wanted it more than anything. My classes became tedious slow waits- but I had to get through them so that I could study EFM for myself.



So, let me reintroduce myself: Hello! My name is Sophinae, Neopia's top EFM scholar.
