Story Twenty Four - Ended May 11th

The day began like any other. I was eating breakfast with little sister when all of the sudden a regal voice bellowed from the clouds, "What have you brought forth to me?" Confused, my sister and I looked around. "What have you brought forth to me?" the voice repeated. "Huh? Who are you talking to?" I asked, looking at my family. "Yes, I am talking to you Toira!" "How did you know my name?" With a brief pause, the voice started up again... Author :Neopets Staff

..."What do you mean, brought forth? I was just sitting here eating breakfast!" I said, confused. My little sister looked at me and shrugged, then twirled her finger around her temple. I agreed; this voice was crazy. "Obviously not. You contacted me just now. And, accordingly, I desire tribute before I answer your question." "But..." I started. "No buts, Toira. Do you have a gift for me or not?" "No! I didn't contact you or whatever I did.... Maybe you have the wrong number or something...?" Another short pause. "Well, if you don't have a gift for me, I must send you on a quest for one. Bring me a Fire Faerie in a jar!" I opened my mouth to protest, but then my kitchen disappeared and I was in a field...

...after rubbernecking around a bit, the first thing that came to my lips was, "Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore." But I could have been, if Kansas had small Scorchios flitting over the wheat. One zoomed in overhead in front of me. "Hey," he said. "So you're on a quest, too, eh?" I nodded and replied, "You wouldn't happen to have seen a Fire Faerie in a jar hereabouts, would you?" The dragon shook his head no apologetically. "But I got a jar of food here. Not sure what it is. Eat, and catch the Faerie when it's empty. Lotsa luck!" And he flew off before I could say thanks. Not being one to sneer at free food, especially after I missed breakfast, I opened the jar, and chug-a-lugged. That was NOT such a good idea... Author :spiritcorsair

...I'm not at all sure what the jar had contained. In fact it may have contained many things for the flavour was nothing like I had every tasted before. The smell reminded me of the magical smelly socks I had seen in the pharmacy just last week. I gulped down hard and managed to swallow all the contents of the jar - now at least I had somewhere to put the Faerie when I found it. First I had to wash this jar real good or my captured Faerie would be suffocated by evil food fumes! I thought some most excellent mint tea would do the trick, and leave with a pleasent taste in my mouth too! So one pot of tea later I felt much better and I had a sweet smelling Faerie jar. Now time for the really hard part--tracking down on of those pesky Fire Faeries. Was that a small flame I saw in the distance?... Author :wildpuppy

...I flicked my Meerca tail and zipped over as fast as I could to the flame. As I got nearer I could make out some kind of red with flames surrounding it. My hopes went up as I ran closer, then went down as I saw it was just a Scorchio blowing flames from its nose. Another one? Was this place full of Scorchios? As I approached, the Scorchio got up and reached out his hand to shake mine. Then at the last moment he drew his hand back and blew a loud raspberry in my face. Surprised, I stepped backwards. "Good morning, morning good, have a nice day, a nice day do have," he sang cheerfully. I almost laughed, despite the strange situation. He studied me for a second, then let out a loud guffaw. "Used to be a me-me-me-Meerca?" he asked, laughing. "I am a Meerca," I replied, confused. "Hahaha!!!" he giggled. "Looks like Scorchio-illi-itus is taking place!" "Scorchi-illi-whatus?" "Scorchi-illi-itus!" "Scorchi-illi-wh- oh, forget it." I looked down and saw not Meerca toes, but Scorchio toes! And not my lovely Meerca paws, but huge Scorchio paws! However, my tail had not changed yet and was still in Meerca form. I did not find it funny. So that's what the strange food had done! "Why am I a Scorchio?" I asked, alarmed and upset. "Everyone is a Scorchio, silly!" he sang. "Silly silly silly!" "But, why?" "Why not?" Well, that ended that conversation. "So.." I began. "Why am I here?" "Because you are! Iiiiiit's quest time! You heard the voice like the rest of us!" "Yes...I did," I said, recalling it. "And because you're mad!" he finished. "Excuse me?" "You must be mad if you came here!!" This was all beginning to sound a bit like Wonderland to me... Suddenly, he got up and began to take flight. "Wait!" I called. "Mad mad mad mad maaaad," he sang, and flew a little higher. "Maaaaad!" "Stop!" "By the way, the name is Julius-Marcus-Phillipus -Danus-Lucusis-Majorcus-Glorius-Bottemly, but you can call me Julius-Marcus-Phillipus-Danus-Lucusis-Majorcus-Glorius-Bottemly. See you around!" And with that he flew off, leaving me with the thought of, what on earth do I do now?... Author :tweetiepie39

...I was so worried about being a Scorchio that I almost forgot entirely about my quest. But, I tried to push it out of my mind. This was quite difficult because horns and scales were coming up in places I didn't even know I had. I tried to think, Where would a Fire Faerie be? I had heard of people capturing them in random places but that seemed like a long shot. "Ummm..." I said out loud. Just then another little Scorchio buzzed up to my face. "What's the problem, problem?" In my mind I was thinking, "Oh no! Not another crazy Scorchio!" But I figured that they probably had some useful information if I could only get past their jabbering. "I need to find a Fire Faerie and capture it." The Scorchio hovered for a second, seeming to be deep in thought. "You could look in the volcano, volcano. Here I'll show you, show you." With that the Scorchio started fluttering off, as fast as its little wings could carry him. "Hey wait up! You know I can't fly!" "Sure you can. Oh wait, that's right, you must have been a Meerca." I gritted my teeth, saying, "I still am a Meerca!" as I glanced at my beautiful bushy tail. The Scorchio continued. "You just flap your wings as fast as you can." I started to flap. Slowly, I rose into the air, and clumsily the two of us set off. I let the Scorchio lead the way, which later turned out to be the last time I ever trusted a Scorchio... Author :iguanaluva187

...what a bad sense of direction! I thought to myself. Instead of going to the volcano, we ended up in some weird shop where the sold stinky medicines. "Where the heck are we?" I asked. "S-s-s-sorry!" the little Scorchio stuttered. "I-I-I just couldn't resist. If you would mind, p-p-please go away..." So, I walked out the shop and waited for him to come out. I actually was kind of glad that I was out of there; I was getting sick of the smells. When the Scorchio walked out, he was carrying a bottle of pills. "What are those for?" I asked. "Oh, y-y-y-ou're st-st-st-st-ill huh-huh-h-h-ere? T-t-they're for my s-s-stuttering. I-f-f-f-f-if yo-u-u-u-u haven't-t-t-t not-t-t-t-ticed, I-I-I t-t-t-tend t-to st-st-sts-st-utter," he said. He gulped down the whole bottle of pills. "Listen," he said. "No more stuttering." Then he flew away. "Wait!!! Where are you going?" I yelled. But he flew out of sight. I looked around and came to the sad conclusion that I was lost, had scaly skin, and still had an empty jar...what to do, what to do?... Author :dog1pet

..."Oh, figgle-stix!" I blinked at the sound of a pert, high-pitched voice just beyond my shoulder, and turned to see a tiny green Faerie barely the length of my paw. She appeared to be shaking a tiny little wand that sputtered and sparked every now and then, but nothing more. "What are you doing?" I asked, stepping back a pace--just for safety's sake. After meeting two half-crazed Scorchios I wasn't sure I was up to dealing with another loony creature, and besides, you never know what Faeries will do. "What does it look like I'm doing?" she snipped back at me, turning a pair glaring yellow eyes in my direction. Her whole body shook with crazed mini-motions as she continued shaking the wand. "Um... trying to strangle your wand?" "NO!" she practically yelled in my ear, "I'm trying to get this darn thing to work! And I'm in a dreadful hurry so leave me alone!" "In a hurry? Why?" I asked. "BECAUSE!" she grumped fussily, "Some lucky Meerca was sent on a Quest for a Fire Faeries in a Jar and then went and got themselves turned into a Scorchio! I was SUPPOSED to come and help them, but just as I was about to caste a seek spell my wand breaks! Can you believe that?! It BREAKS! ARGH!" I hesitated for a moment, glancing from the irate little green Faerie, down to my Scorchio claws, and then farther down to my beautiful Meerca tail. I had just followed the directions of two creatures in this place and gotten hopelessly lost as consequence. Did I dare to tell the Faerie she had found the one she was looking for?...

..."Ummm... I don't think that you're going to need a wand to find your Meerca turned Scorchio," I said hesitantly. "How would you know?!? You're just one of those mad Scorchios!!!" the Faerie snapped at me, "And you aren't a Faerie, you don't know anything about magic, you're just a...." Her eyes roamed over my half-Meerca, half-Scorchio body. She had a blank look about her face, as if she didn't understand what she saw. Then it was like a light bulb lit up above her head, and a big grin slowly spread over her face. "This is great!!" she exclaimed. "I thought I would never find you!!" "This must be your lucky day," I said nervously, because I didn't want her to turn out like those mad Scorchios that I met earlier. "Hey...." I said, remembering something. "When we first started talking, you said something about me being lucky... Why am I lucky?!? I certainly don't feel lucky right now!!!!" The Faerie looked at me puzzled. "...You should feel lucky, you got sent here for a good reason and you're the one that contacted Him in the first place!" Now I was the puzzled one. "What are you talking about?? Who is Him and are you going to help me find a Fire Faerie so I can go home and finish my breakfast??"... Author :hermione150

The Faerie looked at me impatiently. "Maybe you aren't the one I am looking for! Maybe you really are a Scorchio. You're certainly dumb enough to be one...okay okay...let's take one question at a time. "Him" is Bob, the great and mighty. Bob is an oracle, a neo-oracle to be precise. He goes around and everyone in Neopia gets one question answered by Bob in their lifetime. In order to ask your question, you have to say, "Holy...blah...." The blah is a fill in the blank. Whatever you say, you have to give as payment to Bob for his answering of your question." Drat. Now I remember. This morning at breakfast, I said "Holy Fire Faerie" because of all the food! Mom had really gone all out this morning and cooked us a really great meal. Remembering all this brought understanding, and deep sadness... will I ever see that food again? Will my sister eat it all seeing as I am not there? Oh, and what about my mom? The Faerie continued to speak, "Okay, question two. Yes, I am going to help you, and I bet you are wondering why. Well, this is very simple. I am not doing it for you. On the contrary, you Neopians trap us Faeries in bottles and then bribe us with our own freedom to grant you things. That is so not cool. You guys are lucky we Faeries don't all join together and form a union! Then where would you be? Huh? No, I am not doing this for you. I am doing this because I am mad at my half-sister. She is a Fire Faerie and is always rubbing it in my face. 'Fire Faeries are better than you little Earth Faeries! All Earth Faeries can do is make flowers! Nah nah nah... blah blah blah!' Yeah, I'll show you flowers! Okay, so here's the deal. I help you by giving you my sister. You help me my taking my sister! Deal?" "DEAL!!" "Okay, here's the plan... I will summon her, and you hide in those bushes over there... then, when she comes, jump out, grab her, pop her in the jar and seal it!" And that's exactly what I did... Author :sexy_rose02

...The Faerie had summoned her sister, who popped up right in front of the bushes. "Why did you bring me here?" she asked, very annoyed at the Earth Faerie. "I was just about to watch Karate Jub. It's a really gr-" I jumped out from the bushes and caught the Fire Faerie. "Uh oh!" I realised that I didn't have the lid anymore. Panicking, I grabbed the top of a Mud N Mayo Jar from a nearby trashcan and screwed it on tight. "Help!" she cried. "I'm stuck, and it really smells bad!" Suddenly, I heard Bob's voice again. "You have done well," Bob said. "As a reward, I will let you keep this Fire Faerie!" I screamed for joy. I had never ever, in my whole life, had a rare item. After I said good-bye to the Earth Faerie, Bob sent me back to my house. I saw my little sister watching "Neo-Stunts" on television. As I walked behind her, I saw a Quiggle jump from a very high cliff towards the water. "Holy Dung Catapult!" she exclaimed...
