Talkin' PetPet

by chibicrys

Yesterday, I painted my Janaai's PetPet pink, to match her name. Today I interviewed her, and the results were surprising. It consists of 24 questions about a wide range of topics. You can read it below. Bold text are my questions, and italic are Gumdrop's answers. It's a bit long, but I think it's definitely worth the read.

Hello, Gumdrop!

Gumdrop jumps up in the air, and lands with a thud.

You seem to be happy today. ^_^

Gumdrop purrs softly.

Aw, what a sweet little PetPet you are!

Gumdrop blinks, but doesn't do anything else.

I guess you're kinda shy.

Gumdrop squeals, 'AAIIIIIIIEEE'

I was hoping to interview you. Is that OK?

Gumdrop blinks, but doesn't do anything else.

Not very talkative, eh? So that's a yes, then?

Gumdrop says 'Brrrflp'

Um... all right. Were you surprised at being painted?

Gumdrop makes a strange clicking noise.

I think the colour suits you. And your name.

Gumdrop doesn't say anything.

So you don't like pink?

Gumdrop squeals, 'AAIIIIIIIEEE'

Okay, so that means you do?

Gumdrop sticks its tongue out at you.

You're a silly little critter.

Gumdrop says 'Brrrflp'

*laughs* How did you feel being won at the Fruit Machine?

Gumdrop doesn't say anything.

Can I take it you were nervous?

Gumdrop jumps up in the air, and lands with a thud.

I can imagine. You didn't know what kind of a home you'd be going to.

Gumdrop hisses at you... HHISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

I guess you're happy to be with someone as sweet as Jaanai.

Gumdrop says 'Chrrrrpp chrrrrp'

Do you think other PetPets are as lucky?

Gumdrop hiccups!

I suppose most of them get sold...

Gumdrop jumps up in the air, and lands with a thud.

I hope you didn't lose too many friends.

Gumdrop doesn't say anything.

You poor little dear. Let's move on.

Gumdrop hops wildly around the room!

Going back to being painted, is hopping into the PetPet puddle fun?

Gumdrop jumps up in the air, and lands with a thud.

It sounds wonderful. I think all PetPets should be paint-able.

Gumdrop says 'Brrrflp'

So you like standing out of the crowd?

Gumdrop sticks its tongue out at you.

It's getting late. Any final comments?

Gumdrop hops wildly around the room!

Well, I'm going to give you back to Jaanai now, okay?

Gumdrop purrs softly.

Goodbye, Gumdrop.

Gumdrop hops wildly around the room!

Great. You're happy to see me go. -_-

You see, though PetPets look like stuffed toys that just *happen* to breath and occasionally make noise, they are much more. PetPets are highly intelligent creatures who are capable of strong emotion, as Gumdrop has just demonstrated. While they don't speak Neopian-English, each species has their own language, however primitive it may sound to us. PetPets do their best to communicate their feelings, all we have to do is to take the time to listen. Think about that before feeding a helpless little creature to your Grarrl.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed my article. Please feel free to send me your questions, comments and criticisms.
