The Top 10 Rarest Items in Neopia

I don't have much to say about this one, other than the fact that it was my first NT entry.

It's also worth noting that which item's the rarest can be debated; which would be rarer, an item that was released three times but no longer exists or an item that was released once but still exists? Therefore, the order is subjective.


The One Who Opted Out

This was my first short story in the NT, and the first front page entry.

When I wrote this story, I was unable to find the quote that I wanted for the beginning; therefore, I just paraphrased what I could remember. After the story was submitted, I located the quote, which was as follows.

It was here that they were told why they'd been summoned and given the option to leave. Only one candidate opted out; he was sent on his way after downing an elixir that erased any recollection of the encounter.

I do regret not doing my own coding for this, as originally I had all his thoughts and memories italicized, which made them easier to separate from what's happening at that moment.

The following quotes from Kaljinyu nicely summarize up anything else I could say about this story.

He's fighting through the memory erasure potion, like a hard drive that won't boot, but the data is still there. It's like, the data is all there! It's just a matter of... arranging it, or routing the path that your brain takes through its memories to find it! But you did something stupid and overwrote the partition table of your mind. And now you have to do whatever you can to at least get back to booting ground, whatever you can to get back to your right mind.

It feels like part of his frustration about not being able to remember what happened was because he's upset about his past and how he opted out. It's like, I dunno, maybe if he hadn't opted out Rutu wouldn't have died. It doesn't sound like it makes sense at first, but guilt can make an explanation of anything.


The Most Notable Trophy Designs

My first submission to earn me the Quote of the Week.

This was originally rejected when first submitted. After having the lovely user June Scarlet proofread and critique it, it was held over for several weeks and then accepted.

Oddly enough, my title was actually changed - it was originally called 'The Most Notable Trophy Designs (Or Something)', but the (Or Something) was removed when the article was published for unknown reasons. I also had a section for the Bouncy Supreme trophy that was removed from the article a few weeks after publication.


The 12 Best Advent Calendar Animations

This was my first article to make it onto the front page.

This entire article was written during the month of November, just barely getting submitted in time for the deadline I set. In order to write this, I watched every single Advent Calendar animation starting from the beginning and worked my way through the years, writing down any animations that stood out to me. Then the top 12 were selected after a lot of debate and a description was written out for each of them.

Ironically, this was submitted at the beginning of December in order to avoid having to compete with the many, many Christmas articles submitted at that time of year. However, TNT themselves chose to hold over the submission and publish it in the Christmas issue, a decision which I certainly don't have a problem with. ;)

The item I received for making it in was a Christmas Pattern Negg.
