I'm just a yellow Kougra; nothing special. If you want to read my story, go ahead. My story has a happily-ever-after, yes, but it's not like that. My story is much more complicated. It's hard for me to even tell it nowadays. So if you really, truly want to read it, go ahead. Go on, read it, but this is a warning.
I felt something tickle my nose, and I scrunched it up.
"Soooooo cute!!" A voice. A girl. "I'll call you Marty!" This girl spoke in exclamation points. "Come on, Toto!" I saw a green Xweetok flick his tail and follow the girl after she handed a bag of Neopoints to a pink Uni behind the desk. "Thanks so much! He's soooo cute!!!" She said again as she opened the jingling door and we hopped outside. She put me down and got out a blue collar with a jingly bell on it. "For you!" She popped it around my neck and snapped a leash onto it. Toto, the Xweetok, already had a leash on. He swayed towards me and whispered, "I'll explain it when we get to Melissa's Neohome. Trust me, though...It's not a home." I blinked. What was going on?
"We're going to the Pizzaroo to CELEBRATE!!!!!" She said this like it was the most exciting day of her life. Heck, maybe it was, I had no idea.
We walked for a while, and soon my pads began to hurt from the steaming sidewalk.
"Can we take an Eyrie?" I asked a little quieter than I would have liked.
"Oh, sure, Mart Mart! But you're going to have to talk a teensy bit louder with Toto and I, OKAY?!"

Sometimes, Percy really didn’t know how he got into these situations. It had been a nice, slow Tuesday at the office when his boss had stopped by. There he was, two revisions deep in his latest article over the local junior Altador Cup game.
|Edna the Avatar Thief (Part 1) |
Edna the witch is probably one of the more written about villains in the Neopian Times. Villain you might say? Well villain she is indeed! Not even Dr. Sloth himself would have the nerve to ask for 20,000 Neopoints of items per quest and not give a pesky avatar out! Edna has no such limitations.

|Zombie Neopets: An Anatomical Debate|
They say you only have one chance at life, but that’s not always the case. Those who are lucky- or depending on your view, unlucky- enough to be raised from the grave have come to be known as zombie pets. Be it from potions, paint brush or lab experiment gone wrong, these shambling friends can provide some unique and interesting insight on the life cycle of a Neopet, and how death is sometimes merely a road bump along our journeys.
