Shadyy's Neopian Times Page
| ||Welcome visitor. This is mainly a list of Shadyy's NT entries, aka the struggle for a non-native speaker to write in English. My first ever entry was published when I was about 18 or 19 (yes, I'm ancient now.) I have always loved writing when I was a child, then I sort of stopped/gave up/forgot about it as a teenager.
I am very happy that the Neopian Times has published some of my stories, it gives me the courage to keep writing.
I've subdivided in three categories: Dr. Wilbur (shame on you if you don't know him!), Short Stories and Series.
So, just take a scroll and enjoy.
03/16/2014: Currently working on a Dr. Wilbur series
Dr. Augustus Filibert Wilbur
*The Wondrous Woes of Dr. Wilbur: The Case of the Purse and the Pickpocket (396)
| ||Aha! I see you are interested in the great and grand tales and adventures of Dr. A.F. Wilbur! How very wise you are. Dr. Wilbur made his first Neopian appearance in issue 396, after another one of Shadyy's long breaks from writing (she's so very very lazy). * cough * Anyways, since that first appearance he's been the recurrent (anti-)heroe of a few other short stories. And trust me, Dr. Wilbur, isn't planning on going anywhere anytime soon.
He is my favourite character at the moment, I love writing him and quite frankly these stories just tend to write themselves.
Below you will find an extended list of the stories featuring Dr. A.F. Wilbur
I must admit I've never written a story. Never. It must be said that until now my many chivalrous and substantial actions prevented me from doing so.
*Dr. Augustus F. Wilbur and the Witch's Pustules (issue 467)
I decided to venture outside in the dead of the night, my courage being without limitations and boundaries.
*Dr. Wilbur's Fantastic and Grand Illusen Day Adventure (486)
Once again, dear fan, I have picked up my priceless gilded quill to regale you with another tale of courage and selflessness.
*The Amazing Dr. Wilbur and the Treasure of Five-hundred (500)
Dear Dr. A.F. Wilbur,
Request your immediate assistance at NT HQ for most delicate and secret matter.
*The Fantastic Dr Wilbur and the Drackonack's Toenail (518)
It is my great joy and pleasure to introduce to you another riveting and hair-curling account of my most recent and scary adventures.
*The Very Long Vacation of Dr. Wilbur (569)
Now that everyone's tan is fading and the memory of sunglasses on the nose seems like a mere dream, I find the time to recount my latest adventure.
Green Eyes (148)
Just staring at the people who come by, making up stories thinking they have no idea that someone is thinking about them, someone they don't know. Maybe I could be their best friend if I knew them...
Note: If I remember well, I wrote this when I had a wee bit of a crush on someone when I was about 18 or 19 years old.
Red boots, Green pencil (169)
When Jupe came home he was delighted to see his father had gone out to work. He dropped his bag in the entrance hall, took a few steps back and stared at the scene. His father was an absolute control-freak.
Note: Painfully inspired by some of my dealings with my parents. Jupe is my secret wish and hero, if only I could have been as brave as him.
Violin for Timothy (210)
Only one young Neopet slouched slowly towards the gates, carrying a brown leather briefcase and wearing a brown cap on top of his black hair. He hesitated at the border of the barred gates, pondering whether he should cross into the other world, the one that separated him from school...
Note: I wrote this story a couple of months after loosing my grandmother. It was the first thing I wrote since it happened and I did not write anything long after.
I decided to leave. Goodbye Qasala, hello new life. It was going to be brilliant!
Note: Inspired on the story of a good friend of mine who left his home country in search for a better life.
Curtain. Release (562)
I remember it distinctly: I had just turned four years old and was sitting on the rug in front of our fireplace...
Note: I've been taking ballet since the age of 4 and only thought it appropriate to have a ballet-related story in the Neopian Times.
Not Another Illusen Day (636)
Green, green, green, green!" she yelled as she hurled Fresh Green Potpourri across the room. It hit the opposite wall with a merciless crunch...
The Raven Faerie (issues 128 - 130)
Note:This was my first ever published entry in the Neopian Times. Originally I was inspired by someone else's NT entry picture. It's quite obvious this was my "I love Fantasy" - period.
Merogan, Lupe Warrior (issues 139 - 1145)
Note: Hello, LotR-obsession! Merogan is the classic good hero, inspired by Lancelot, Aragorn and many more. He saves the day and the damsel in distress, or he attempts to do so. I 100% fangirled him. This is the second story I ever published in the NT, so I'm a bit sketchy on the details of the story (I wrote it about ten years ago).
The Sword of Brightvale (issues 380-381)
Note: An attempt at a series. I just haven't got it into me anymore to put so much time in one Neopian Times Story, I like quick results, I should work on my patience.
See you soon
