Story Eight Hundred Four Ends March 2nd

Mira the Space Faerie glided across the grand hall of Faerie Palace, her toes just hovering above the marble floor and the stars of her pants leaving magical trails of glitter in the air behind her. She was nearly late for her twelve o’clock appointment.

The faerie at the doors ahead of her opened one and let Mira enter into the faeries’ salon. She bowed instantly upon entering the royal salon, for her good friend, Queen Fyora, was there to greet her.

“It’s good to see you again, My Queen,” Mira said as she stood upright, also offering a warm smile.

“Yes, it is so good to see you again,” Queen Fyora said. “Your hair has grown so beautifully long since we’ve last met! Are you sure you want it cut?”

The Space Faerie nodded in confirmation.

The queen smiled. “You will love our newest hairstylist,” she said, bringing Mira past the front desk and into the salon room. “Frank is one of Neopia’s most talented hair stylists!” Fyora motioned her to sit down, so Mira sat in the leather salon chair.

“Wait. Did you say—” Mira questioned, but it was already too late. Mira looked up.

The mirror showed her none other than Dr. Frank Sloth standing behind her…

...Mira's first reaction was quickly stand up and walk out of the room as fast as possible. She grabbed Fyora by her arm on the way out. Mira shut the door behind her and glared at Fyora with angry eyes.

"My Queen, you know I respect you, but why on Neopia is Dr. Sloth a hair stylist?" Mira hissed.

"Frank has promised to reform his ways and be a better part of society. I'm just helping him find his place," Fyora calmly explained. "He is quickly adjusting to life on Neopia."

Mira held the bridge of her nose. She couldn't believe this was happening. There was no way this was true. This must have been some elaborate joke Fyora or the other faeries were pulling on her.

"You have to be kidding me," Mira groaned.

"I assure you, I am not," Fyora responded.

"How on Neopia do you expect Dr. Sloth to reform? You know all the things he did."

The faerie queen remained calm, but was starting to get more stern. "Yes, I am aware of everything he did, but I believe everyone deserves a second chance."

"Okay, even if he could change, how is this a good idea?"

"Mira, I've had enough of this. My decision stands and Frank stays." Fyora turned away from Mira and walked down the hall. "You can choose to cancel your appointment if you wish, but that won't change my mind."

Mira leaned on the wall and groaned. The queen must have lost her mind if she thought this was a good idea...

Mira sighed and was about to make her way back into the salon when she heard voices talking in a hushed tone.

Quietly, Mira tip-toed towards the voices. She came up to a slightly ajar door and peeked inside. Two purple Grundos stood whispering.

"That is right," the larger of the two Grundos said. "Dr. Sloth is planting brainwashing devices on all of the faeries as he does their hair. Soon all of Faerieland will be under his control."

"Even the Queen?" Asked the other Grundo.

"Yes," replied the first Grundo. "Queen Fyora already has a device planted."

Mira gasped and stumbled backwards, tripping over her feet and falling to the floor with a loud crash.

The two Grundos turned and looked right at Mira...

“Hey, you’re supposed to be in the salon!” the larger Grundo exclaimed, clearly aggravated.

As Mira got back to her feet, the smaller Grundo yelled, “Get her!”

The two Grundos heaved forward but Mira’s reflexes were quicker; with a swoop of her hand, a dazzling beam with the intensity of concentrated starlight flashed across the hall, blinding the two Neopets who foolishly thought they could apprehend a Faerie.

With Sloth’s two accomplices temporarily stunned, Mira knew it was her chance to escape. Rather by foot, she took to the air and flew back the way she came through the Faerie Palace. Mira frantically looked to see if any of the other Faeries were present, but the royal court was uncharacteristically empty.

“Sloth must have gotten to most of them already,” Mira apprehensively thought, “…but how could he have gotten to Fyora? Fyora doesn’t cut her hair unlike the other Faeries… so how would he have bugged our Faerie Queen with the brainwashing device?”

Mira glided through the grand entrance and looked about Faerie City which also appeared abandoned. She was desperate for a plan, so continued thinking, “If it’s not in her hair, it must be in… her crown! How would Sloth have accessed her crown though?”

The Space Faerie scanned the city and it was instead what was missing that caught her attention.

“Of course, the Hidden Tower! Fyora would only remove her crown in a place of secrecy. Isn’t Baelia helping run it right now? Maybe she’ll know something…”

With a blur of stars behind her, Mira zipped her way up to the city’s skyline and reached ahead for the entrance to the invisible tower. Upon entering, she noticed…

...that the tower was an absolute disaster. It had clearly been ransacked by someone with no regard for the power and value of the items sold there.

Mira hovered, rotating in a circle as she surveyed the damage before quietly landing on the debris-ridden ground. It was only after the humming of her wings had subsided that she heard quiet sniffles coming from the corner.

Immediately on her guard, Mira crouched behind a stack of crates that had been smashed open and crept quietly toward the sound. She sprang around the corner, ready to fight whoever or whatever was there, but found only Baelia, sobbing into her hands. Her antennae trembled with every sniff, and she didn't seem to have noticed Mira.

"Baelia! What happened?" Mira asked, feeling a mixture of sympathy and impatience.

"Mira?" Baelia said, looking up through the blurry tears in her eyes. "Has everyone heard already? I can't believe I let Fyora down. They stole so many things, and destroyed everything else. I never do anything right..." The Grey Faerie buried her face in her hands again as more tears streamed down her cheeks.

Mira came closer and held out a hand to her fellow faerie. "What happened here wasn't your fault," she promised. "But I need your help! Fyora and all of Faerieland need your help. Dr. Sloth is trying to take over again and we have to do something!" She clasped Baelia's hand and tugged her to her feet.

Mira began leading her back toward the exit, but once they were at the door, Baelia hesitated and pulled back. "Baelia, please," Mira said, growing frustrated under the stress of all that had happened. "I can't do this alone. I need you to help me!"

"No, wait," Baelia said, rubbing tears from her eyes and turning back the way they had come. "I just remembered something. I think it might help. Before Fyora closed the Hidden Tower, she brought me here and told me...

that she would always protect Faerieland even if she wasn't physically able to herself. She has hidden a magical item in the Hidden Tower where no one can get to it unless you have the code to get in. Follow me, I know the code and the location of the item."

Mira ran back into the mess that was the Hidden Tower and they stopped in front of what appeared to Mira to be just a stone wall. "Baelia, there's nothing here but a wall." Mira said. "No, Mira, it's what's inside the wall that is going to help us."

"Uh, Baelia, are you sure you're feeling ok? What could help us that would be behind a stone wall, and how are we supposed to get to it? I'm not demolishing this wall just because you think something is inside of it."

"No, Mira, we don't have to demolish the wall, watch me, I told you there is a code and you have to know the code to get to the item."

Baelia tapped one stone twice, another once, another four times, and finally another three times. All of a sudden the wall opened up and what Mira saw made her gasp. It was...

... Queen Fyora's staff!

"Are you sure anyone can wield this, Baelia?" Mira asked, still staring at the staff before her.

"The Queen has said that only one with the purest of hearts can hold it," Baelia replied. "The staff will offer itself to those who are determined to protect the innocent and vanquish all evil. I believe that is what you are doing now."

With a pounding heart and trembling hands, Mira stepped forward and gripped the staff. It weighed heavily against her palm. She could barely lift it up, let alone use it.

"I think you have to relax, Mira," suggested Baelia. "Set your mind on your goal and don't let anything else distract you."

Mira closed her eyes and pushed all the worrying thoughts out of her mind, instead thinking of ways to put an end to Dr. Sloth's plans. As if in response to her plight, the staff lightened considerably and she felt a surge of power exuding from it. When she opened her eyes, she saw that the orb of the staff was glowing faintly.

"I think it has decided to aid you in your quest," the Grey Faerie said. "Go to Dr. Sloth and stop his evil plans."

"Thank you for your help, Baelia." Mira smiled and bid farewell to her before taking off to the skies again, heading straight for the palace. To prevent all the Faeries from being brainwashed, she had to face against Dr. Sloth, her old arch nemesis, the villain who had started all this ...

As Mira traveled to the palace, she tried to think of a plan. She couldn't just stroll into the castle now, could she? The two Grundos had likely told their master that she'd overheard them, and that she'd gotten away. How would she able to get to Dr. Sloth?

Just as Mira was beginning to feel some serious pangs of doubt, the answer hit her. It was so obvious.


Mira didn't have to get to Dr. Sloth; she could rescue Fyora and let the Queen handle the rest.

The Space Faerie landed in front of a little-used castle side-entrance. She suspected most of Sloth's minions would be stationed at main entrances by now, or surrounding the doctor himself, and she was right. The nondescript door was unguarded, and Mira slipped in and headed toward Fyora's chambers...

How will the story end..

..."Mira!" came a voice The Space Faerie recognized as none other than Dr. Sloth's right-hand Grundo, Esterhazy. "I'm so glad to have caught you," he said before flashing his characteristically unabating grin. "Sir Dr. Sloth wants to see you, you know."

"Buzz off, lunatic," she said to him before brushing past him, turning the hallway just before the door to where Fyora would be taking residence.

Esterhazy's smile wavered, just a bit. "I wouldn't go in there, if I were you." He paused, but his smile radiated in full force. "Seriously, you won't like what you see."

"Look, Esterhazy," she grumbled as her hand touched the enchanted doorknob of Fyora's chambers, "I have a job to do. I have a Frank to defeat, a Queen to save, and a Faerieland to restore."

The Grundo shrugged as she opened the door.

"Ah, Mira!" came a cold, non-descript feminine voice. "I'm so glad to see you."

It was Queen Fyora.

Except... it wasn't.

Mira had to rub her eyes. And then she gawked.

It was Dr. Frank Sloth, dressed in the Faerie Queen's pink-mauve dress, wearing a set of wings, and with a nice pink wing.

"Told you," Esterhazy said quietly from behind her.

The Space Faerie almost recoiled. "Er... Dr. Sloth?" she commented in between swallows. And then she regained her composure. "Where's Fyora? What have you done with the Faerie Queen?"

"I am Fyora, Mira."

The faerie frowned with contempt. "Cut the act, Sloth, I know who you are."

Dr. Sloth scowled. "Fine," he said, his voice returning to normal tone. "You know, Mira, the brainwashed faeries see me dressed like this and I instantly can command them to do whatever I please. But, I see you HAVEN'T managed to be swayed by my mind control tricks. And I also see you have my missing piece." He reached forward toward the staff.

She raised it, prepared to strike against him.

"Oh, don't be like that." Sloth grinned malevolently and snapped his fingers. As if by magic -- the sort of magic commanding an army via reverant fear brings -- his large army of Grundos, purple and otherwise, appeared at the scene, stretching all throughout the halls.

But that wasn't all.

There were also many, many faeries! Perhaps every one from Faerieland!

This included Fyora, whom Mira realized was nearby her in the group surrounding her, dressed in rags aside from her crown. "Come, Mira," the brainwashed Faerie Queen started, "come to the Sloth side..." and she held out a spacey hat.

And then Mira remembered the brainwash device that must have been in Fyora's crown -- the only element of Fyora's attire that Frank hadn't taken from her -- from his vantage point of mind control, with good reason. But this gave Mira a plan.

"HEY FAERIES!" the Space Faerie shouted. "This IMPOSTOR," she accused, gesturing toward the real Fyora, "has taken Fyora's," she continued, now pointing at Sloth's, "crown! Y'all should take it from her and give it back to the one from whom it belongs!"

Mumurs and choruses of agreement broke out through the crowds.

"No!" Sloth shouted, as faeries removed Fyora's crown, and started to swarm him, preparing to place it on his head. It was a small battle between the faeries and Grundos, but the Faeries easily won. Sloth panicked as he was being encircled by faeries who just wanted to give him his rightful crown. "Get off--" but before he could issue the command, it was already too late.

Fyora, no longer brainwashed, shook off her headache and noticed Mira.

The Space Faerie grinned at her leader and threw her the staff.

Sloth, now feeling the effects of the brainwash-crown on his head, became rather lethargic.

"Well this is almost too easy," Fyora said to Mira as she descended on the Doctor.

The Space Faerie smiled.

Soon, everything would be back to normal.
