Quote of the Week

There are times when I’ll randomly feel nostalgic and begin to miss bits and pieces of my youth, and since Neopets was a pretty big part of it, this site is just a huge puddle of nostalgia for me. I get very emotional whenever I take a look at how much the site has grown over the years, and how much I’ve grown along with it. Gone are the days of blissful innocence where I can log in for the day without the slightest care in the world, and have been replaced by the stress of work, school, and other things, but it’s always nice to know that a huge piece of my childhood is still here, waiting for me to come back always.

9 Reasons I Keep Coming Back to the Site

I have been playing Neopets for well over 10 years now. I can still remember the time I created my first ever account— My older cousin was there showing me the ropes and showing off his Darigan Kougra, which I thought was the coolest thing ever at the time, and still think is pretty cool today! I created a Yellow Buzz and was browsing through its different possible colours, feeling super amazed and wanting to someday paint my Buzz Fire (because Fire is so rad, amirite?)

How to Become a Great Neopian Times Writer

Hello reader! How are you? I bet you read the Neopian Times all the time, I know I do. I read it for years before I finally got the courage to submit an actual story to it. That story, unfortunately, did not get in, and neither did the next one. Then one day I got the most exciting neomail I’ve ever gotten. I got in! The Neopian Times has always been a place of inspiration and admiration for me. Always full of stories, awesome articles, and comics, but for years I wasn’t sure how to get published until I learned these steps.

Thank you, Neopian Times

For about 900 issues, the Neopian Times has delighted us, informed us, entertained us, fooled us, broken our hearts, and broken our funny bones, often in some combination of any of the above. It has been an integral part of life in Neopia for as long as any of us can remember, providing writers and artists with a fill-in-the-blank news source where they can flex their creative muscles and pens, and readers with something to, well, read. And it has also become an integral part of my life, beginning with my first article way back...

"Anniversary" by herdygerdy
The little cube-shaped robot drifted through the vacuum of space, a tiny cable the only thing mooring her to her home, and the only thing saving her from a lifetime flying through deep space. She floated on a precipice of potentiality. A balancing line between safety and oblivion, between life and death. An existential tipping point. Her creator would be proud. Scintilly, however...

"Pip's Special Delivery" by corrina404
Pip was excited. Well, he was normally excited every Friday, but this Friday was extra special. It was issue 900 of the Neopian Times, and Pip especially loved it when it was an edition that was a multiple of fifty. It was like Christmas – but better! Because he didn’t get to deliver the mail on Christmas. Since before he could remember, Pip dreamed of being a delivery Weewoo for the Times.

"900 Weewoos Over Neopia" by platinum_marauder
Countless shining stars light up the night sky over Neopia Central. If any were awake at this hour they could look up into this mesmerizing sea of diamonds above, smile, and ponder the brilliance of the universe. Though the stars were breathtaking, there was another reason that this night was one to be remembered. For tomorrow when dawn comes, Neopians throughout the lands...
