"Neovia's Corruption" by trishabeakens
"My dear, the Kiko Lake Team poses absolutely no risk to the kingdom," King Altador spoke, stirring his hot cup of tea with a small silver spoon.
Altador sounded calm and collected, as he always did. The man hardly ever raised his voice, but when he did, it was utterly terrifying. Thankfully, this wasn't one of those times. Neopians either feared or respected him, sometimes even both.
Queen Nera sat across the table from the famous Lupe and let a soft sigh escape her mouth. "They don’t necessarily pose a risk, they're just…"
"A minor inconvenience?"
The brown haired Xweetok nodded at the reply. "Al..they're always ‘accepting’ donations from unsuspecting Neopians. They're literally taking items without the consent of others!"
Nera was right about the team. She didn't like talking bad about others, but after so many times of dealing with the team, she couldn't take it anymore.
"Nera, please... we have already discussed this." Altador says, as he sat the small spoon on the table. He then lifted the cup to his mouth and took a sip.
The rulers of Altador have had this same argument a many of times. Nera despised the infamous Kiko Lake Team, mostly because the queen herself has fell victim to their donation scheme. Basically, the team would appear out of nowhere and take a random item saying it was a donation, so they could attend this year's Altador Cup. It has tormented many Neopians for years. Queen Nera always wanted to punish the team for doing such things. Either excluding them from the Altador Cup for a season or deducting points, she wanted justice. Many other Neopians were also upset with the team. Most of the time when they buy an item, immediately it is taken by the Kiko Lake Team.

I'm just your everyday, nondescript petpet. My color is plain, the color that I was born with. I am not painted a special color and I'm okay with that. I enjoy all the same activities as any other petpet: taking walks in the park with the other petpets, being fed only the highest grade petpet food available, and being pampered with toys, grooming items, and a nice cushy bed to curl up in at the end of the day. A comfortable and relaxed life definitely the life for me. That is all I want and all I will accept.
Oh. You've noticed, haven't you?
I am a Yooyu.
“And so, you can easily argue that Hornington’s theories do not stand up to current scientific standards, as well as entirely contradict the findings of Rosher in his study, “Swamp Gas Aishas in Their Natural Habitats.” Therefore…”
|The Shadow of Takeryuu:Part Seven|
The trip to the mines was not easy. Faerie shadows constantly swooped down at them, eyes aglow, but Eunji and Min were quick to dispatch them. Eunji, being faerie-coloured, was especially sensitive to magic, and she let that sense guide her as she led her friends into a dark shaft in the side of a mountain, a hole that looked like a bottomless pit.
|Hope For New:Part Two|
Late at night, thunder crashed around outside the little bars of my cage. The pound wasn’t a nice place, let me tell you. Dr. Shtalker would make his rounds every day, collecting the pets who had been there for the longest, and taking them to his lab, cackling with joy, and every day I hoped I wouldn’t be one of those pets who never returned.
