Fact or Fiction? Kadoatery Folklore!

Over the many, many years I have been hanging around the Kadoatery, I’ve developed certain… perceptions about feeding Kadoaties. Call it the Kadoatie culture if you will—surprisingly, even the simple act of feeding Kadoaties is associated with beliefs and superstitions! Whether such superstitions are true or not and/or whether or not you believe they exist regardless of their legitimacy, it is always fun to joke around about them.

Do you think that you know ALL the characters that exists in Neopia World? Do you know WHICH part of Neopia they comes from? Do you REMEMBER in which plot they are starring?

"Usuki Singing Stars #46: Something Special for You" by downrightdude
"This bracelet is going to look so pretty, Mr. Porkers,” Lola gushed as she sorted through her tin of beads. The yellow Cybunny held up the string of yellow star-shaped, green triangle-shaped and pink heart-shaped beads she’d fashioned. “How does this look?” she asked her Snorkle. Mr. Porkers oinked and sniffed the tin. Lola beamed. The bracelet was a surprise birthday present for Ms. Butterworth, a cloud Bruce who’d taken the young Cybunny in after her parents abandoned her at the Pound. To show her appreciation, Lola decided that a homemade bracelet would be the perfect present—something Ms. Butterworth could wear everyday, as a reminder of Lola’s love. Pleased with the result of her creation, Lola tied the string into a knot and, shivering with excitement, slipped her hands through the bracelet. It was a perfect fit.

"Mystery of the Brightville Vanishing " by josephinefarine
In the soft light of the autumn sun trickling in through the port windows, some passengers aboard the SS Delfin were enjoying their breakfast. Having set sail from Mystery Island two days ago, the vessel was en route for Brightvale, and would reach its destination in just a few hours. Well, it was early: most voyagers were asleep in their cabins. A few, though, had already packed their suitcases and were seated at the simple tables scattered throughout the ship’s sparsely decorated cafeteria. Some passengers had elected to stand out on the deck to enjoy the misty breeze.Perched to one end of the railing on the deck stood a Cloud Cybunny, one foot precariously placed in between two steel balusters. Her long trench coat rippled in the coastal wind and her hazel eyes were fixed on the horizon. She did not seem to mind the spray of the ocean, and she smiled in spite of the mist.
