Never Again, Spiced Apple Pie: Part One

Grundo’s Café was as busy as ever. The canteen on the recreation deck of the Virtupets Space Station held a myriad of Neopets unwrapping their rehydrated Chicken Dumplings and carefully nibbling their Electric Nachos. Wall-mounted screens showed the latest in news and entertainment from around the galaxy, including an interview with some Alien Aisha musicians and the latest strike on Sloth’s forces on some far-flung world.

"Tallydepp and the Imperial Exam" by Tallydepp
Tallydepp, the Royal Uni, galloped home from school, full of nervous excitement. "Woah!!" exclaimed her mum, as Tallydepp came hurtling through the door. She put the Uni cake she had just baked in the oven on the kitchen table and wiped her hooves on her apron. "Whatever has happened?" she asked. Uni cake was Tallydepp's favourite food and usually the sweet aroma would stop her in her tracks, but today the excited Uni didn't even notice. She pulled a letter from her school satchel, her hooves shaking slightly. "Look! Look!" she cried. "I've finally been selected to try out for the Imperial Exam!" Tallydepp's mum gasped with delight. "Oh my dear Uni daughter, I know how hard you've worked for this and how much it means to you!" She pulled Tallydepp into a tight embrace. "I'm so proud of you!" Tallydepp laughed nervously. "It's only an invitation to try out for the exam, Mum. I might not even pass and get in. I've still got lots of studying to do yet. I've only got two days to revise all my spellings." "I'm sure you'll do fine," Tallydepp's mum said encouragingly. She cut a slice of Uni cake. "Here, have some cake to celebrate."

Heavy Metal
A Mote. A particle, or speck of dust. A tiny, inconsequential amount of something, usually pictured floating off to nowhere. A little bit of somethingness to punctuate the nothingness. This might be what always made me uneasy, when I thought of motes - that emphasis of space. At least, I think it was; before that day, when I started thinking something else.

Zapped and Pounded
I looked around my cage. There was no way to tell if it was day or night, not in this dark, windowless space. The only furnishings the room held was a small cot and a sink in the corner. My food and water bowls were empty, not that they were very full to start with. Three stone walls surrounded me, my only connection to the outside world being through the rusty bars of the cage.

The Soft Side of Eliv
Perhaps there's a soft side to the spirit that lives in the abandoned castle in the Haunted Woods... or perhaps not.

Hannah's Adventures: the Kreludor Caves
You control Hannah – and this time, unlike Ice Caves, it’s only her – and your mission is to collect treasure chests around the map, and when you are done, enter the door. If you have ever played Pirate Caves or Ice Caves I am sure you know that even though it sounds simple, it isn’t.
