You Know You’re Addicted to Avatars When…

I’m not quite sure how or when this happened, but one day many, many years ago, I found myself suddenly obsessed with little square sets of pixels. I don’t know just why that little “Something Has Happened!” popup denoting the newest addition to my collection is as thrilling as it is, but at some point in time, my entire Neopian life began hinging on the thrill of the chase… of avatars!

"Lab Partners" by megan_a_56
The pair of Unis walked up to the Neoschool. Outside, groups of students mingled on the lawn, excitedly comparing schedules and catching up with those they hadn’t seen over the summer. It seemed like a picture perfect first day of Neoschool. The mother turned to her daughter. “I want you to promise me you’ll try to make friends here. You may have gotten away with keeping to yourself in the past, but this is high school now. You’re supposed to be social and involved.” The woodland Uni merely shrugged in response.

Suzette stood poised and tall, her shoulder-length black hair styled in a neat bob. Her wings were of the same shape of a Dark faerie’s only hers were light indigo with red interiors. She eyed Kira once more with her deep-red eyes and smirked with her ruby lips. “Do you honestly believe there was only one Darkest faerie in all of Neopia?”
