Quote of the Week


She nodded at the loading screen, a satisfied smile on her face, and hopped out of the room. Overgrown claws ticked on the floor as she made her way through dark and dreary halls and to the elevator that would take her above ground.


A Quick Buzzer and Buzzer Honey Guide



Have you always wanted to know more about buzzers and the honey they make? So has Chadonis Rumpbottom, the owner of Honey's Apiary, which is a-buzz with all kinds of honey-making Petpets. She has compiled a quick non-comprehensive list of different buzzers, their quirks, and the flavours and uses of their honeys for you, dear reader: Common Buzzer - local Buzzers are a friendly sort, and thrive almost anywhere where they can find flowers and plants. They may take a liking to a Neopet-built hive, but they also make their own in the trees. Buzzer honey is sweet and thick, and good for a sore throat! Pink and Purple Buzzers are variants of the local friendly Buzzer, and live quite happily alongside each other, and their honey tastes different. They have a notable preference for their respective colours in flowers. Pink Buzzer Honey is light pink, and has a little cotton candy-like flavor, and Purple Buzzer honey is lavender in colour, and tastes similarly lavender-y. Grey Buzzer - Grey Buzzers are quite the sad little creatures by nature, and like low-to-the-ground and dark places to live in. Their best honey season is during the fall, and their honey tends to be thicks and grey-ish in colour but tastes quite lovely despite the unappetising appearance. It's also an excellent mood-booster! The Grey Buzzer buzz is a very distinctly low, moody one.

Quiz: Which Evil Coconut Are You?


Seasons change, Neopian shopkeepers are turning grey, weekly quests finally rotate… and with this last change came the re-release of the previously contest-exclusive Flaming Evil Coconut. Everyone is scrambling to get Evil Coconuts, and thus an Evil Coconut shortage in Neopia has begun.

I can be a bit hot-headed.

"The Unexpected Gift" by _dezygurl_
“Arrgghhhhuuuughhhh!!” Athaleas grunts and groans as she stretches in bed. Sliding her head out from underneath her pile of pillows, she manages to open one eye and attempts to check the time on her alarm clock. 6:55 AM it reads. “Really?” she grumbles aloud, “I had FIVE more minutes to sleep. Those five minutes mattered!” She slowly slithers both legs off the edge of the bed and sits up. Continuing to stretch her arms toward the sky, Athaleas staggers to the bathroom to brush her teeth and wash her face. No matter your species, Athaleas will tell you “skin care is vital to maintaining a youthful glow.” “Honey! Is that you? You’re up early!” a muffled voice shouts from below. “Come down when you can, I have something SPECIAL waiting for you!” That’s Brennie, Athaleas’ mom. She’s one of those outgoing, bubbly mothers who is overly sweet, extremely chatty, and definitely a morning person. “Who else would it be?” Athaleas mutters to herself. Her father Elex was on a business trip halfway around the world of Neopia and wouldn’t be returning for at least another three days. Athaleas still couldn’t understand why that job couldn’t wait. It was her special week, after all.

"A Surprise for Trudy" by maddie_bangz
It was a breezy spring afternoon when Trudy decided to go on one of her long walks around Neopia. She loved basking in the warm sunshine and smelling all of the blossoming flowers on her route. She grabbed some loose Neopoints and threw them in her bag before heading out the door. She had no idea where she was heading today, but that was the fun of her walks. She never knew where they’d take her! After all, these walks led to her discovering her Surprise Slot Machine all those years ago, which changed her life forever. There were plenty of Neopians out on the streets, smiling and waving as she passed them by. Everyone loved Trudy and her Slot Machine, it was always a highlight of their day. Trudy loved seeing their eyes light up when the machine awarded them their Neopoints and occasional bonus prizes. A light bulb went off in Trudy’s head. “I should probably start looking for some fun new prizes soon…” She mumbled to herself, trying to decide where she should look for the new rotation of items. She was so lost in her thoughts that she didn’t even realise that the streets had cleared of people and rumbling clouds had started gathering overhead. She snapped back to attention when a loud boom of...

"The Young Archer " by quartu
Altador was lovely this time of year. The sea breeze was cool and gentle, the smells of fresh pastries and floral perfume filled every corner of the city. They had begun preparing for the Altador Cup, decorations of each team colour hung proudly over the Arena District. Far from the city, however, near the quaint wheat fields, Morgan, a yellow acara sat still amongst the gently swaying wheat, her trusty training bow lay in her lap as she contemplated the events of the day. She had been spending her summers in the great city for as long as she could remember, studying archery under the guidance of the mighty King himself. Her parents had done a great deed for the city, so the council had no problem looking after young Morgan while her family was preoccupied with their duties. She didn’t mind it one bit, getting to learn about Altador’s vast and rich history and hearing tales of the council's heroics were a few of her favourite activities. However, being surrounded by so many great heroes made her feel quite inadequate at times. Fidgeting with her bow she stared out over the rolling farm hills, even outside its grand walls the land was so beautiful and the acara took it all in peacefully. As she sat still her muscles began to ache.
