Hot Snow Soup

“Great! Aaren is learning how to be a good friend…but he still isn’t comfortable around others."

“It doesn’t come naturally to everyone, you know.”

Open Shore

The sky was still pink with sleep when Xurray went down to the beach. Early that morning the Custard Blumaroo had stared into her bathroom mirror, wondering what beauty there could be in a face that no longer had anyone to admire it.

Sandstone Boots

In Anmon, children danced in the playground of the dust devils. The spirits would have eaten them if they knew, but the children were too quiet for them to notice.

By the Sun's Hand

The last stray beams of moonlight filtered through the thick fog that hovered over the Deserted Fairground, which was anything but. Shrieks of not feat but laughter sounded through the well-kept cobwebs of the musty stands.

Haunted Adventure

Exiuz, a Checkered Mynci, had always dreamed of becoming an investigator for lost petpets, but it wasn’t in his plans to become one in the Haunted Woods.

"Pixie the Ixi" by Username
Deep into the woods of Meridell, far past anywhere Illusen would dare send a devotee, traveled a pair of Neopets on their own quest. The slower of the pair, was an elderlyboy Ogrin who huffed and puffed. He could be heard from miles away whacking hanging branches off of the trial. The pastel Blumaroo who walked a good five paces ahead looked back in mild impatience every few minutes.

Architecture of Neopia: Altador
To a scholar of Architecture, Altador is without a doubt the pre-eminent land in Neopia. The prevailing style is known as “classical”.

The architecture of this realm is often overlooked in favour of the annually held Altador Cup.

Flaunt Your Nerdiness: A Customization Guide
I’ve compiled a simple list of items to help you get started. My theme this week is geeky chic. The title of nerd was once a shameful nickname, but now it is worn as a badge of pride. The nerd subculture has grown tremendously over the years. Now your neopet can also revel in their own nerdiness with a wide array of wearables. Perhaps you can even sport matching pocket protectors, eh?

The Sorceress and the Prisoner: Part One
