Consolation Prize

Jimmy heaved out a breath, his red paws aching just a little from having climbed the path leading up the temple. He usually prized himself for his stamina, but after his journey, he assumed it was only natural to feel an ache. The long, winding paths were unlike the forests of Mystery Island, where he had lived with other Kougras of his kind. And, back home, there definitely hadn't been any bridges to cross, hanging high above an abyss.

Vira: A Beautiful Lie

An intoxicating aroma hung freely in the air and settled around the whole field going whichever way the wind happened to blow. Hues of every shade could be seen in this field flowers and blossoms blooming everywhere. Petals traveled with the wind and floated softly in the air. Trees towered over, and sunlight beamed through the emerald leaves of the trees casting a transcendent glow to the ground. Vines curled and twisted with the trees, they wrapped around every branch each bursting with blossoms. A once golden gate, now taken over by time stood and appeared to be one with the vines.

Reasons why Cubefish are underappreciated



Summertime is the perfect season to head off to Maraqua for a day of fishing! While there are dozens of species of fish and other marine life that call Maraqua home, the best of all of them is the Cubefish. If you've ever caught a Cubefish while fishing at the Ye Old Fishing Vortex, you probably thought "Oh, look, it's a fish that's cube-shaped", and tossed the fellow back without another thought. Or maybe you've never seen a Cubefish - a shocking thought, really - and now I've piqued your curiosity (muwahaha). Well folks, whether you've never seen a Cubefish before, or love them as much as I do (which is a lot), here are some reasons why Cubefish are absolutely amazing. I'll also include some ways we can appreciate them even more! Reasons Cubefish are the best fish: 1. They're Extremely Space-Efficient Have you ever tried to stack a bushel of Tangellas? What about a bundle of Eyefish? Well it's no surprise that it probably didn't work out so well...just imagine, a food that was actually designed to be stacked! No more worrying about toppling towers or your meal rolling away. The Cubefish is so space-efficient, in fact, they had to put it in the description. Look it up if you don't believe me!

Lupe Pack Detectives-Copycat
It was probably early in the morning, around five-o-clock or so, when I, a Blue Lupe, woke up to the sound of someone loudly banging our front door. I was definitely irritated by it, but I got up as it was not something that I could easily ignore.

The Big Move:Part Four
-Konjik-

I was excited for this kind of day. I loved visiting my cousins but my favorite cousins were in Roo Island. Ever since Roo Island went through a huge reconstruction to attract more tourists, it’s been a lot more fun to visit and the cousins who lived there were as exciting as the island itself. I would’ve been fine with any family of cousins to visit but I’m happy it was these guys.
