Short Stories


The Extravagance of Life

They spoke of Adrian's masterpiece, handcrafted by him and funded by the king: the Wheel of Extravagance. Created from exquisite gold and bronze, it was designed as a tourist attraction for the city. A Neopian could pay one hundred thousand Neopoints to spin the wheel, and depending on where it landed, they won a prize.

"And you made sure to make the right parts heavier?" Jazan questioned.

Pocket Change

"They want to put a lever into the wall of the Supply Deck."

"Okay..." Castrix was silent for a moment. "A lever for what?"

"Well, it's a weird request. They say they want a mechanical hand to come out when someone pulls the lever, and take Neopoints from the person who pulled it."

The Once-Forgotten Shore

Loud enough for the whole crew to hear, he announced, "Prepare to land on that shore." Tornin the navigator looked down at his map, then back up to the shore. Back down to the map, then back up to the shore. He decided he wasn't mistaken. "Captain, I think it would be very unwise to land here."

The Auction

Serena the Shoyru nervously clutched her bag. It contained exactly 12,000 Neopoints—her entire summer savings. It was the last day of vacation and she had come to the Auction House with her best friend, Callie, in hopes of buying something new and exciting. But the sun was sinking lower in the sky, the crowds around the Auction House were starting to thin out, and Serena had not spent any of her Neopoints yet.

In Stitches

"Come on, now, Mr. Rotter. I'll never be able to sew your arm back on if you don't stop hiding in the cellar." The zombie peered up at the Plushie Gnorbu as he loomed over the cellar door and shuddered, inching further back into the shadows.

"The Auction" by sacados
"Sold!” The Scorchio auctioneer exclaimed. “The Vo Codestone goes to the purple Blumaroo in the second row for 5,500 Neopoints!” Serena watched as the enthusiastic Blumaroo bounced up to the auctioneer to claim her prize. Serena the Shoyru nervously clutched her bag. It contained exactly 12,000 Neopoints—her entire summer savings. It was the last day of vacation and she had come to the Auction House with her best friend, Callie, in hopes of buying something new and exciting. But the sun was sinking lower in the sky, the crowds around the Auction House were starting to thin out, and Serena had not spent any of her Neopoints yet. “What are you waiting for?” Callie asked her. Callie’s backpack was stuffed full of items that she had won throughout the day. It seemed like she had gotten all of the best deals: three plushies, two bracelets, and even a rare negg, all for less than 10,000 Neopoints. Callie seemed to be exceptionally talented at bidding on auctions, winning them all without a struggle.

Petpets of Neopia
Every Neopet should have a petpet. These cute little creatures teaches Neopets about responsibility and friendship, and can provide countless hours of fun. In this article I have looked at all petpets from the various Neopian lands and narrowed my choices down to three favourites which I feel are the most iconic and best represent the land they hail from.

Educational Games on Neopets
After doing some research on what games I believe would have some educational factors with in the Neopian world, I comprised a list of games that will help with math, language and spelling, and problem-solving ablilities. Children sometimes struggle with these things, but these games will make it a fun and addictive experience.
