Food For Lunch!

. "Oh, Lunch," she replied, "you wouldn't like shopping, you're far too timid for those busy shops. Look at how everyone is pushing past one another, just to get the most expensive things on sale! No, you wouldn't like it one bit." They were sitting on the grass by the fountain of the Neopian Neolodge. A crowd had formed outside the nearby post office.

Usuki Singing Stars #29: Sparkles Be Not Proud

“Scary! Look! Look! Look!” Sparkles chanted, rushing into the living room. The pink Bruce eagerly waved an envelope over her head. “Look at what I got in the mail today!!!” she gasped. “Don’t tell me you actually got fan mail,” Scary groaned. The purple Bruce flipped through her fashion magazine, not bothering to look up. “Or is it another NT rejection letter?”

Letters to Goose

Dear Goose, I’m sorry that I haven’t written as often as I promised but I’ve been busy settling into my new home. My initial impressions of it were somewhat mixed but I’ve come to like it since. I’ve always wanted to live in an old, spooky mansion like this. I’m getting inspiration for my mystery novel every hour I spend here.

"Not Always as it Seems" by extreme_butterfly
Lilly the Ixi grew up as a wealthy pet. She always had the most expensive customizations, her stats were always on top and she had her wings professionally groomed so that they'd glisten as she flew across Neopia. Even the Faeries were jealous of her beauty. Although she was really wealthy, Lilly still had to attend the only school in Neopia. She'd prefer a private school, but Lilly had to admit that she didn't mind all eyes being on her every day. However, she wanted and insisted that no other pet sit beside her. One day as Lilly flew into class and took her seat, she noticed the seat beside her had been occupied and their eyes was staring at her. "Ugh, what are you doing in that seat? No one is to sit there. No one has ever sat there before. Take a picture it will last a lot longer, but I will have to charge you for it!" Lilly exclaimed as she took out her mirror to glance at herself. The pet sitting beside her simply dropped their head and stared at the desk. Lilly took a closer look at the pet and noticed it was a female Blumaroo. Her clothes and hooded robe was tattered, and she looked as though she visited the Soup Kitchen often. The Blumaroo looked different than the other pets in school. Her fur looked nice but the clothes was a totally different story. They looked like she had got them from the money tree.

Scientific Highlights: The Crokabek
Little is known about a majority of the Petpet species living in Neopia. For some, such as the Crokabek, this knowledge gap is particularly large. What is considered common knowledge in terms of their biology, including that of their disease vector status is, at best, a partial truth.

Ladies and Gentleman, I am here to state loud and clear you are not alone.

Sir Tormund Ellis: A Documentary: Part Three
Tor was the first person I saw after I had fallen from Faerieland, and I'm honestly really glad about that. Partly because a huge part of me was worried that everyone else in the kingdom had been possessed the way my mentor Seradar was, but also because, honestly, I don't know how I would have survived that first monster attack without his help.
