Nameless and Famous

by chocolateisamust

IN THE LAND OF THE NAMELESS – The other day, my Acara brought home an armful of Neggs. Apparently, she had bought them all with the money I was saving up to renovate my Neohome. But rather than immediately selling them in my shop, I decided to redeem them at the Neggery.

I threw on a jacket and some boots and then headed off toward Terror Mountain. A few hours later I arrived.

Immediately, I headed toward the Neggery, where I discovered the Negg Faerie tidying up the oval-shaped building. I dropped my own Neggs onto the table, and then waited for her to come over to me.

She did so after a few moments, and after examining my Neggs, told me that they were worth 25 Negg Tokens in all. I was rather pleased with the results; 25 tokens could buy me quite a few nice Neggs!

I decided to thank her.

“Thank you uh…” Suddenly, I paused, wondering what to call her. Nobody had ever told me her name.

“Negg Faerie,” she finished.

I nodded, smiling like a moron. The Negg Faerie gave me my tokens, I got a couple of Neggs, and then I left.

Upon my journey back home, I discovered something strange. The Negg Faerie had no name!

All the other famous faeries, like Jhudora, Illusen, Taelia and Fyora, have names, but not the dear faerie who deals with Neggs!

When I arrived back at my Neohome, I sat down in front of a notebook and started jotting down reasons why the Negg Faerie doesn’t hold a name.

1. She DOES have a name; she just doesn’t like disclosing it to people. Afterall, she is quite famous. Maybe she doesn’t want people to look her up in the phone book and start stalking her.

2. Her parents constantly bickered over what to name her, and finally decided not to name her at all. Hey, it could happen!

3. Being in below-zero weather constantly finally got to her brain. It’s not like she doesn’t really have a name, but the poor faerie merely cannot recall what it is.

4. All the good names were already taken.

5. Her generation is all nameless; she grew up with the shopkeeper from the Food Shop and the Skeith from The Bank.

Okay, so I had five possible reasons why nobody knew her name. But alas, that did not do it for me. So I sighed and asked my Aisha for more ways to find out the reason of her being unnamed.

“Why don’t you go interview some citizens?” he suggested.

I nodded and thanked him for the idea. I then grabbed my notebook and Air Faerie Pen and headed off toward The Beach, where I knew many tourists ventured frequently.

Luck was on my side, as The Beach was totally filled up. I instantly found a spotted Kau sitting on a bench. She agreed to do the interview.

Me:So, what’s your name?

Kau: Selfii.

Me: OK Selfii! So, were you aware of the fact that our beloved Negg Faerie had no known name?

Selfii: Yep. Doesn't seem fair, does it? I mean, Taelia the Snow Faerie gets one, and she only hands out quests.

Me: I know, and I totally agree with that fact! If anybody, the Negg Faerie deserves a name! Afterall, if it wasn’t for her, who else could I secretly steal Neggs from in the middle of the ni – I mean, if it wasn’t for her, who else could help us with all our Negg needs? Moving on, though, if she did have a name, what do you think it should be?

Selfii: Hmm, well I always liked the name that taffychic gave her in a series once. Tacy. It's a pretty name, don't you think?

Me: Yes, it is rather pretty! Now, Selfii, why do you think the Negg Faerie was never presented with a name?

Selfii: Well, honestly, I think that its Number Six's fault. I think he's biased against the Negg Faerie because she never made an Asparagus Negg!

Me: Interesting theory, Selfii! One last question, now. Glamour Negg or Happiness Negg? And no, I'm not just asking this because I plan on stealing one or the other tonight.

Selfii: Oh, happiness over beauty definitely! And I hope old Negg Faerie gets a name soon, or she might turn into a grey faerie! That's what happens, when a faerie loses her name, isn't it?

Me: Ah, I just thought of that! And yes, I do hope that she gets a name soon! I wouldn’t want to see the Neggery under new management because of her losing her wings or anything in that manner! Honestly, who knows if the new faerie would keep the back door I use to sneak in during my robberies unlocked. Anyway, thanks for your interview, Selfii! I appreciate it!

Selfii: No problem!

I waved to the Kau, and then walked away. The interview had gotten me to ponder over whether the Negg Faerie would be stripped of her wings due to the lack of a name. Concerned, I dropped my notebook and pen back off at my Neohome and headed back toward Terror Mountain. I immediately strode to the Neggery, where I found the Negg Faerie about to close down the building for the day.

“Negg Faerie!” I screamed, flailing my arms like a maniac.

The Negg Faerie looked up at me and frowned. “Weren’t you that kid who was here earlier?” she questioned.

I nodded. “Yes, I was. But there’s something you need to know!”

“What?” She looked at me strangely, as if I was an escapee from some insane asylum.

“You might become a Grey Faerie because you don’t have a name!” I yelled worriedly.

She bobbed her head up and down slowly, this weird look in her eyes. I was about to make another dumb comment when she said, “Don’t worry. I won’t become a Grey Faerie, I promise. I do have a name.”

“What is it?” I asked.

“Everybody knows my name!” she exclaimed. “My name, obviously, is –”

Just then, three tough-looking Grarrls marched in and grabbed my arm.

“Is this Chocolateisamust?” one inquired.

“Yes,” I answered.

“Well then, you're coming with us, Little Miss Robbery. Understand?”

“But I didn’t do anything!” I insisted.

Another one rolled his eyes as he grasped my other arm.

“Follow us,” the third one ordered.

“No!” I bellowed. “I was just about to find out the Negg Faerie’s name!”

“You’ll have a lot of time to think about that over the next few years,” the same Chia commented.

They then left the building, with me in tow. But I'll be back in five years. Don't you worry.

Anyway, the whole point of this article? WHY IS MY LIFE SO UNFAIR!!?!

Author’s Note: Hey everybody! This is my really messed up article, based on the comment Joey200010 made during a conversation. “Did you know the Negg Faerie doesn’t have a name?”… or something like that at least. Anyway, thanks to Joey200010 also for letting me interview her as Selfii during the article. Neomail me if ya have anything to say, m’kay? =scampers off=
