BACK-TO-SCHOOL SHOP - It's almost time for Neoschool to start, the Back-To-School
shop is sold out of it's goods seconds after it's restocked, and the Back-To-School
shop is packed with owners ready to pounce and whisk the items out the door before
anyone else get their grubby mitts on them.
But lurking under all the shining new surfaces of the products available at
the Back-To-School is a clever plot created by the Neoteam to transform unsuspecting
pets into strange characters with the help of the hidden abilities of the stationary
that everyone is so eager to get.
Keep in mind that this plan is for the good of the Neopets, the Neoteam would
never intentionally hurt a pet. Each of the new Back-to-School items has a different
For example, the Sloth Ruler. Not only will it gross out your classmates,
annoy your teacher and make your notes illegible, it will also start to affect
you pets in other ways. Using the latest technology this ruler has been fused
with mutant paintbrush ability, the Sloth Ruler has the power to transform your
pet into what many would consider a slimy geek. Your Neopet's fur or scales
will become slick and covered in slime, giving the greasy appearance. Their
skin will be affected by the slimy grease as well and will be plagued with a
teenage pets worst nightmare, zits! Your pet will also appear to be suffering
from a dreaded cold, making them drool and ooze bodily fluids from various places.
And did I mention, this slime has a terrible stench. This ruler will make your
pets terribly unpopular.
Or the Drackonack Back Pack, it may be cute and have a mouth for a zip, but
in reality it is a menace. This Back Pack has in its possession a rather frightening
set of chompers, quite capable of removing an unsuspecting Neopet's limb if
they are not fast enough to remove their belongings from within this Back Pack.
How are you supposed to do your homework if you are missing the limb you write
The Tatty Notebook and Pencil will not make a very good first impression with
your teachers or classmates. You will appear untrendy and uncool, and eventually
the magic properties of these items will make your pet appear scruffy and unkept.
Who wants to be friends with a ragamuffin?
The Dark Faerie series, including the Back Pack and Pen, (did anyone other
than me spot that the Neoteam spelt Stylish wrong in the summary for the Dark
Faerie Pen? It reads, A very stylish pen that writes in dark purple ink ^_^,
I did let them know but they haven't changed it yet.) This series has a rather
devious magic surrounding it, which infects Neopets with the need to be troublemakers.
Your pets will disrupt classes, cause mayhem in the playground, and be an all
round bully. Teachers will be sick of your pet, and your classmates will shake
when they see your pet coming.
Not all effects could be bad, like the Fire Faerie Back Pack, it's so cute
it's bound to get you noticed, you'll soon be centre of attention and popular
in no time. But with popularity comes the disadvantage of enemies. The last
thing you want is to attract attention to yourself if pets are planning to flush
your head in the toilet.
And the Shimmery Notebook, it shows your class with its sparkly-ness, and
it's functional, making it possible for you to do all the work you need to do
and still impress not only your classmates, but your teacher as well. This book
has more advantages over an angelic notebook as an angelic notebook will make
you appeal more to your teacher and you will be labelled a teacher's pet. What
a way to send you popularity spiralling down the drain.
The Yellow Star Notebook is there to help the Pets with low confidence who
feel they cannot be popular. With this charming little Notebook your pet will
be brilliantly happy and attract friends with its radiating smile, like moths
to the flame.
The Fancy Pen shows how classy your pet is, how much style it has, and how
wonderful it is. It will reflect the light and show everyone just how much of
a star your pet truly is.
The Air Faerie Back Pack is a wonderful bag to have. It's magic allows your
pet to have a back Pack as light as clouds no matter what they choose to keep
in there. No more aching backs and necks, no more earthquakes when your pet
drops their bag on the floor, and more manoeuvrability when playing with your
friends who will admire you for your great sense of style and choice.
The Romantic Notebook has good and bad effects, on the plus side it helps
your pet to have great social skills and attract numerous friends and maybe
even a lover. It also allows homework to be done. On the bad side… it is quite
a distracting item, which makes its owner think about love through all their
lessons, and forget they have work to do.
There are many other items I could list and I could tell you how they influence
your pet, but I have to leave some surprises for you to find out for yourselves.
Just remember, you are what you use, just hope your pet doesn't become a snivelling
nerd but instead becomes a social butterfly and attracts lots of friends. Until
next time, watch out.
