Story Eighteen - Ended March 30th

Tyrannia was a place of great magic, mystery and peace for those pets that lived there. But once discovered, visitors swarmed the area, pilfering the land by opening food and furniture shops on every corner and by building ridiculously cave dwellings. Recently, the Chombys and Grarrls have gone on strike, leaving all of the construction to the new visitors. Not only have the new visitors taken over Tyrannia but they've also tried to change their beliefs. The Tyrannians have just about had enough... Author :Neopets Staff

...Chomdurt, one of the oldest dwellers in Tyrannia recalls, "I remember when my family first arrived here. That seems like many Neopian moons ago, but we were so excited to see a place so desolate especially compared to the other places in Neopia. We immediately started to build our cave and tried to live a quiet, peaceful life. A few others came and went like most pets do, but mainly the Chombys and Grarrls were able to stay and maintain a great friendship here. This is where our families was raised, away from the overpopulated cities. We loved it here! Now it's just bustling and becoming overcrowded...I wish that blimey earthquake never happened. I don't know what will happen now that the Grarrls and the Chombys went on strike and won't build, it won't be a pretty sight, no not at all..." Author :jonesphotog

..."Yes, we know, Grandpa," assured Chomdurt's great-great-great-grandson, Chompdirk, a little too energetically. Chompdirk was tired of being reminded over and over again of the "horrible, terrible, unfortunate and devestating earthquake". As far as he could see, the tourism was a good thing for Tyrannia, because it gave him and his rebellious friends something to do. "Nobody likes listening to the elders anyway, and playing tricks on all those weird city dwellers is fun!" thought Chompdirk. In fact, Chompdirt was rather excited about the strike. He knew it would be an interesting event, especially watching the Outsiders (city dwellers) get mad. He thought that maybe they'd even blow steam out their ears! "Mom," queried Chompdirk, "do you think we could go and watch the Grarrls and the Chombys picketing tomorrow?" His mother saw right past his angelic face and immediately exclaimed, "No. Not a chance. Not after the way you have been treating your sister. I don't trust you in public with Outsiders either - they could hurt you!" Not deterred, a slow smile spread over Chompdirk's face. "Hmmmmm..." he thought. "We'll just see what happens.... Author :bookworm246

...suddenly his mom yelled out: "Oh no! I forgot to get some dental tar for your dad today! Chompdurm (Chompdirk's father) has to brush his teeth this year! I remember when he missed it a few years ago, two teeth fell out!" She then looked at Chompdirk, who was still smiling. "Chompdirk, can you get some dental tar down at Ug City and visit Dr. Smashamolar, our family's dentist," she asked. "But be quick and no fooling about. If you aren't back by the time the front of the house is shadowed, you won't be going to the Royal Rubble (the next WCW (World Caveman Wrestling) Pay-Per-View) next week!" Chompdirk quickly jumped outside and onto his saber-toothed Lupe. The Lupe ran down the dirt path. Soon, he found himself at the entrance of Ug City. As he was walking through the streets, the ground started shaking--a wild Grarrl was running down the street, trashing up the shops. "Grarrl coming! Grarrl alert!" an elder shouted and sped past Chompdirk. Everyone except Chompdirk ran in the other direction. Chompdirk then saw the rampaging Grarrl and turned around to run when he heard someone yelling for help. An elder had got stuck in a bit of tar. Chompdirk ran at the elder from the side and shoulder-barged him out of the way. The elder flew out of the tar and landed to the side of a street, and crawled through the door. Now Chompdirk was stuck, so Lupe headbutted him through the window of the shop where the elder went into. Now Lupe was stuck, and the Grarrl was only a matter of inches from hitting Lupe. "No! Lupey!" shouted Chompdirk... Author :healdpk

...then the most unlikely thing happened. An Outsider, a Kyrii to be exact, ran towards Lupey. She grabbed him, threw him toward Chompdirk, and attacked the Grarrl with a fierce scorch attack. "Maybe those outsiders aren't that bad after all," Chompdirk said to Lupey as they went to thank the Kyrii. "Th-th-thanks for saving my Lupe." "No problem," she replied," Oh, by the way, my name's Kyra. Say, are hungry? All this saving and warding off wild Grarrls has made me hungry! Do you like Chicken Cordon Bleu? I know this great restaurant uptown. Wanna come?" "Sure. My name's Chompdirk. This is my pet Lupey. I think you two already know each other." Chompdirk had completely forgotten about his father's dental tar... Author :raymond4321

...Kyra turned to Chompdirk and said, "Have you ever explored any other places in Neopia besides Tyrannia?" Chompdirk, still shaking from his near miss, said, "No. Gramps says that Outside is full of places and people that are scary and..." Krya began to laugh. "What's so funny?" he asked. "Well," she said, "when Tyrannia first appeared, people said the same thing about this place. Big Grarrls and weird food and silly furniture. It only goes to show, that if you make assumptions about things you don't know about, you'll miss out on a whole lot of neat experiences." Chompdirk was stunned. Of course she was right. Maybe this Outsider could teach him a thing or two. "Come on," she said, grabbing his hand, "I'm taking you Neopia Central!!" "But..." began the Chomby. "No buts!" And with that, she pulled him towards the tunnel that lead to the tunnel to the Outside...

2 minutes later...

"And that's the grooming parlour, they did my hair like this...don'tcha just love it? And that's the food shop, there's the clothes shop, that's the pharmacy..." "The WHAT??" asked Chompdirk, he had never seen these sorts of things before (his family always got by without medicine), but then, he thought, that's because there aren't any illnesses in Tyrannia, the Outsiders will probably bring lots of them into the new world! Kyra's voice interrupted his thoughts, "...and that's my dentist.." "DENTIST??" "You mean you don't have DENTISTS??" Kyra asked, "You guys really ARE stone agers!" "No it's just, I had to get my dad some dental tar!! I have to be back home soon!!!" "Well you can get just about anything here...what was it again?" "DENT-AL TAR!!!" he said slowly, thinking over and over, "My Mom's gonna be so mad at me!!!" "I've never heard of the stuff! And it's too late to go back through the crack! They close it off after 6." Chompdirk was in a bit of a spot...

...and was really upset! "Where are we going to sleep?" he asked Kyra. So Kyra went to the Neolodge and booked a hotel with a hot tub, maid service, an en-suite bathroom, video games and everything else Chompdirk had never seen before. Chompdirk had made up his mind, outsiders were not bad at all! In the morning they went back through the crack. Chompdirk's grandfather started scolding him. When Chompdirk had said he was safe with Kyra, he realised he shouldn't of said that or anything about video games. His grandfather said, "Who's this Kyra pet?" Then he realised it was an OUTSIDER! Chompdirk's grandfather banned him from ever talking to Kyra again. But Chompdirk was determined to see his new friend, Kyra, again, who was searching Tyrannia for a tube of Dental Tar...

..."That's not fair!" Chompdirk cried, "Kyra is great. She saved Lupey and took me to the outside-" His grandfather turned red with rage. "She took you to the OUTSIDE?" he interrupted, "That's it! I had it up to here with outsiders! They're ruining my life and tampering with my grandchildren! I won't rest until every outsider in Tyrannia is off the face of this land!!" Chompdirk tried to change his grandfather's mind, but as soon as he spoke those words, he knew it was impossible to try to change his mind. The next day, Chompdirk had already started a campaign to abort all outsiders. Chompdirk sat in his room and sobbed about everything that was happening. If he never went out with Kyra, this would of never happened. That night, Chompdirk awoke to a loud sound outside his room. He rushed out to find Kyra holding a bag. "Kyra," Chompdirk said surprised, "what are you doing here? You could get hurt!" "Oh," Kyra said quite happily, "with all this hectic business going around I barely made it to the dentist office, but I did! I brought back some toothpaste-" "Toothpaste?" Chompdirk asked. "Yes, the same as Dental Tar. I also bought toothbrushes for your entire family, along with some dental floss and mouth wash!" "Gee, that's nice and all, but you still have to go. If grandpa sees you, he'll be angry for sure!" Kyra sighed and walked away. The next day, Chompdirk woke up find his mother and father in the bathroom. Chompdirk walked in to find them both brushing their teeth! "I never experienced anything like this!" mother said. "What a sensation! Chompdirk, get in here and brush your teeth!" his mother said. "I hope you know that KYRA brought those over!" Chompdirk said. "The outsider?" mother asked, "We love her!" "Yeah, tell her to bring more toothpaste!" his father said. Chompdirk smiled to himself. He now discovered the ultimate peacemaker. Toothpaste!!!... Author :ashiahmoon

..."I never thought toothpaste would bring us together," Chompdirk said. "Let me take a picture!" "A what?" his mother asked. He pulled out a camera and his mother and father jumped back. "What the heck is that thing?" his father asked. "Just smile!" Chompdirk said as he put the timer on five seconds. He ran next to his parents and smiled. Everyone did. The flash went off and Chompdirk's father fell back, knocking over his wife. "What are you trying to do us, Chompdirk. You blinded your father!" "I can't see. I can't see! Go to your room," his father said, trying to stand up. Chompdirk picked up the camera and ran off to Neopia Central to get the photos developed. He got the photos developed the next day and ran into Kyra. "Ha!" Kyra said, "You have toothpaste in your mouth!" They both laughed. "Kyra, I need to bring my family something else that will make them understand that the Outsiders aren't so bad. Got anymore dental products?"... Author :devilslilangel66

...Kyra laughed. "Yes, of course I do! It's called floss and mouthrinse. I'm guessing your family will know what to do. Here," Kyra said and handed him the floss and mouth rinse. "Thanks Kyra!" Chompdirk exclaimed. "Oh, but, is there something that can get rid of blindness? A blindness cure?" Kyra laughed so hard she fell back on her back. "What?" Chompdirk asked, thoroughly bewildered. "You... you... you used the camera didn't you?" Kyra gasped in between bursts of laughter. "Yes..." Chompdirk said, still puzzled. Kyra got up from the ground and shook herself, still giggling. "Yeah, there's a blindness cure in Neopia... I think..." Kyra said. "Come on! Let's go see!" The two of them went to Neopia Central and Kyra immediatly led him to Kauvara's Magic Shop. "What's the place? I've never been here before." "It's a magic shop," and without another word, swept Chompdirk into the shop... Author :dragon_tigress2

...and as they did, Kyra then realized something. "I don't think I have the money for a blindness cure!" She exclaimed. "WHAT???" yelled Chompdirk. "You don't have the Neopoints? How are we going to cure my dad NOW?" "I'll lend you some," said a voice. "Huh?" asked Kyra. "Who are you?" In front of them was a purple Shoyru. By his side was a Carma. He handed over a huge bag of Neopoints. "My name's Shyme. A blindness cure, you say? Well, if you're going to get one, you better hurry, 'cause there isn't many left. But I know a way to get a potion's price real low. Just follow me and let me do the talking. You can keep the Neopoints." Confused Kyra and Chompdirk followed Shyme to the counter where Kauvara stood. "Hi, there," she said. "What can I get you, Shyme?" Shyme said, "Gimme one of your blindness cure potions, if you have any left." Kauvara got a bright yellow potion from the shelf. "It's top grade, I think," she said. Shyme sniffed the potion, then shot a face of disgust. "Yuck! It smells horrible! You call that top grade? If I were to buy it, it would be for... 20 Neopoints or so!!!" "If you say so," said Kauvara. Shyme handed over only 20 Neopoints to Kauvara, then he left with Chompdirk and Kyra. Once they left the shop, he told them: "Ha! Thickheaded Kau. It IS top grade, so it will have maximum effects on... hey, what is this stuff for, anyway?" "It's for my dad," said Chompdirk. "Say, you think you can help us make peace with Outsiders and Chombies and Grarrls in Tyrannia?" Shyme smiled. "Sure, kid," He said. "Me and Cam, my Carma, aren't one of those pesky Outsiders. In fact, I've never been to Tyrannia before. Lead the way... err, what's your guys' names?" Kyra smiled. "I'm Kyra," she said. "And this is my friend, Chompdirk. He's from Tyrannia." "Okay, that clears things up. Lead the way!"

Three and a half minutes later...

The three friends arrived at Tyrannia, where crowds of Tyrannia residants were cheering for someone. "Huh?" asked Kyra. "What's going on?" A Chomby turned to them. "Chompdurm is fighting some Outsider!" he exclaimed. "That's Dad!" exclaimed Chompdirk. "We've got to save Dad!" They nudged past the crowds to the head of the fight. A red Lupe was fighting poor, blind Chompdurm, who had quite a disadvantage in the fight. "Dad!!!" shouted Chompdirk. The red Lupe turned to him. "Stay out of this, boy! If I win, we get to take over Tyrannia! If he wins, they'll take over our world!" It seemed bad both ways, but Chompdirk and his friends hatched up an idea. "Look," he said. "My dad is blind. He'll lose if I don't give this to him. Now, these two are Outsiders, and they have helped me. That means all of us can live in peace! So, if you leave us alone, we'll leave you alone! Deal?" The red Lupe stared at him at disgust, but he looked around. EVERYONE else was agreeing! He sighed and backed up. Everyone cheered. Chompdirk gave the potion to his dad, who hugged him. Finally, Outsiders and residents of Tyrannia lived in peace.
