Quote of the Week

She started with the obvious one; Geraptiku. This was the part of the island where the warmth of the sun was blocked out by the thick canopy of trees, the sand giving way to soft, loamy soil, which she supposed was great for farming but did tend to make the city look cold and forbidding. Instead of the staple thatch and bamboo the main island sported, the buildings here were made out of a pale grey stone that leeched any colour from the surrounding trees. Marina shivered. Maybe it hadn’t been the best idea to come here alone.

‘Detectives investigate all kinds of scary places,’ she told herself sternly. ‘You can’t expect to find something interesting where it’s safe and boring.’

"The Hunt for a Golden Shell!" by kimberlyyyyy
Jaackie_Chaan’s favorite activity to do was to go avatar collecting. What a thrill Jaackie and Kimberly got when they saw the “Something Has Happened!” when they unlocked things, and an addiction began. “I want to collect all the avatars!” Jaackie said to his owner, Kimberly. Beginning with the easy, clickable avatars, Jaackie quickly grew bored of only attempting the easy avatars. So Jaackie decided to move on to collecting some game avatars, but again, we were not the best at this! “Jaackie, we’re never going to get some of these game avatars,” said Kimberly, namely Meerca Chase II was forever out of their reach. “All it takes is some practice!” Jaackie tried to encourage Kimberly to just keep trying for the avatar, but to no avail, she did not want to move forward. Next, Jaackie thought it would be a good idea to move on to something else then and look at some of the harder avatar lends and how we could achieve those.

"Whispers" by the_spirit_realm
“Did you know that Mystery Island is haunted?” It was a common whisper for Mystery Island’s schoolchildren, passed from pet to pet in hushed voices and furtive looks over their shoulders. It was tradition during the endless summer nights to gather on the beaches and sit around campfires, swapping ghost stories and urban legends, scaring themselves stupid. The stories became increasingly more ridiculous as the evening wore on, and made sure that no one would want to look too closely in the dark. The only trouble was, the hauntings they were referring to wasn’t the Ghost Lupe, also known as Sylva. Ever since Judge Hog had sorted out that bit of trouble, the Ghost Lupe was a common sight on the island, wandering the jungle and generally keeping to himself. No one apart from naïve tourists were particularly afraid of him, and Sylva was known to even help out lost visitors on occasion. But the other ghosts?

"Kadoatie on the Brink" by bex2633
It was fair to say that Lucy the Kadoatie was used to a life of luxury. Either she was at home with her beloved Aisha, Leila, being spoiled, pampered. and generally adored, or she was in in the Kadoatery, where to her delight endless Neopians would clamour to feed her whatever expensive and delicious treat she most fancied at that moment. Leila had even painted her faerie, and now she could fly, which was honestly just too much fun. Lucy truly felt she was the envy of all other petpets, and she could not be happier with this state of affairs. Point being, Lucy was not used to hardship in any form. So she really didn’t know what to think when Leila stopped in front of the catacombs of Neovia, and gestured at the door. Lucy cocked her head in confusion, and swished her tail. Leila sighed. “Go on Lucy. There’s treasure in there and I need you to find it. If I go in I will be cursed.” Lucy stared at her in disbelief, and mewed pitifully, before fluttering off into the branches...
