Why Snowballs Don't Melt

Have you ever noticed the various items made of snow that you can find all across Neopia? Have you ever wondered how they come to be in these places, so far away from Terror Mountain and Snowy Valley and yet haven't melted? This is the story of how they came to be.

What Are Ghouls?

After yet another successful unhaunting, Brave Bren, the Professor, and Glyn were heading back to the Ghoul Catchers headquarters to recoup. Bren held the used equipment, the Professor held the lantern, and Glyn held the amulet containing the troublesome ghoul that they'd just been chasing for half an hour. As the Purple Usul stared down at the amulet and the forlorn face circling around on the inside, a strange question suddenly came to mind.

Library of Kindness

"Rangeant, you're late again." Captain Threelegs muttered in front of the class. "I'm sorry Captain Threelegs. I overslept." I laughed as I walked through the Academy's classroom, walking to my seat. Captain Threelegs continued discussing the lesson while I was busy preparing things.

Something I Don't Already Know

“Why is it that every time these twin Wockies organize a parade, we’re the ones sent to clean after it?”

“Shut up and get to work, Cornelius,” Carmichael glared at the Werelupe, pulling off the latex gloves from her fingers. The ghost Xweetok groaned, tying her hair in a bun. Her translucent face was stained with flaked skin and red spots, her Howie coat unbuttoned and in a state of disarray.

Dark Omen

The Black Pteri sits on a fence post howling doom and misery for all to hear... "Oh, please!" Ryan scoffed. "That's such a tacky beginning to a story." The storyteller sighed. "Young Neopet, will you allow me to tell my story without interruptions?" "Hey, I'm paying you for a story, aren't I?" Ryan retorted. "I should be able to interrupt." "Fine - just please make them sporadic. Anyway..."

Cheap 16th Birthday Celebration!



If you’re anything like me, you’re likely saving your Neopoints for some huge purchase you will probably never be able to afford. Or maybe you spend most of your Neopoints before they even hit the bank. Either way, good for you! *high-fives* However, it can be a real bummer if you want to mark a special occasion (oh, I don’t know, say like a certain site’s 16th birthday?) but you don’t want to, or can’t afford to, break the bank to do it.

The Neopian Pound - That's No Life
This inspired me to begin regularly fostering abandoned neopets and helping them find good homes. The process starts with a search in the pound, where I look at each available pet one by one to determine who most needs my help. Today, I not only help Chias, but pets of all species.

And Then There Was Silence: Part Five
Finneus hops carefully over the foggy waters of Bogshot Swamp, trying his best not to fall into the nasty, seemingly-gelatinous marsh. It's difficult, however, to maintain his balance when he's got tired, achy wings drooping behind him and his hands are full of treasures.
