X: Many Questions Answered
The vortex opened, and out stepped a girl. A young Japanese girl with a
skirt and button top. And I'm sure all the rest of the guys would agree with
me that she was very pretty. She walked nearer to us and humbly said, "Hello."
I walked up closer to her. "Um, hi. Would you happen to be Sakari?"
She nodded. For someone that we thought would've been very evil, she proved
to be very nice. At least that's what we thought at the beginning.
"So, what's your business in all this?"
"I was the original programmer of the NeoP0rts and R2s. My proudest achievement
was incorporating the NeoWeapons."
"That would explain the names of the attacks. They sounded a little Japanese."
"Indeed. I thought it would make them less identifiable."
"Okay, I need to ask you: Why were we chosen to become the holders of the
Red Roms, and how were those objects transformed into them?"
"It was actually completely random. I made a Web page that had a special code
encrypted into it. The pets eventually surfed onto it, and the code was put
on their computer. The object that came in touch with the system of the computer
was turned in an R2, which had all the data needed to create the NeoP0rts and
open the gates of the Internet."
"But wait! Orichalkon didn't get his at home, he got his at the Battledome!"
"He accessed the site from one of the public PCs there. And his membership
card was the next thing to touch the internal systems."
Willie stepped forward. "I have a question. Why was I the only one that received
a Neomail from you?"
"I sent Neomails to all of you, but the NeoPets Web site intercepted all but
yours." I started asking questions again.
"Why is there a NeoPets Web site when it really exists?"
"After I first witnessed Neopia, I told my friend about making a Web site
about it. I never told him it was really there though... it was too secret. That
friend was the creator of the NeoPets site. I gave him every NeoPet the site
has, and every time I discovered a new one, I told him about it." Kage stepped
"Everything so far makes sense, but there are still some things unanswered.
Are NeoPets digital? If not, what are they made of? And how do they exist past
"All simple. NeoPets are made from a little bit of everything. A very small
amount of computer code, Ether, and actual animal life form. As for existing
past the Internet, it was simply used for turning you into temporary data making
the travel through the Ethereal Plains and to Neopia move faster."
It was all starting to make sense. Confusing sense, but sense. But I needed
to know more. So I asked.
"If you wanted to keep this place so secret, why'd you make it so people could
"An experiment to see if it was possible for other humans to travel here.
And my experiment worked."
"But why did you want to see if other people could come here?"
"Because I want to turn Neopia into a place where people can travel to and
from freely... for a price, that is." Suddenly the nice little girl was gone,
replaced by an insane greedy maniac. I had to protest.
"You can't make this world public! Humans will destroy it! The NeoPets need
to live by themselves!"
"Do I really look like I care about the well-being of these filthy creatures?"
She took out her NeoP0rt. Hers was silver. "My NeoPet is for one thing: Fighting!
Sansensa, come! Ethereal NeoPet Transport!" Another Ether Portal opened, and
out came her NeoPet... a Snowager!?
"I'm not seeing what I think I'm seeing!" said Orichalkon. And all of us were
thinking the same thing. Orichalkon asked, "Where did you get a NeoPet like
"It was a very rare kind NeoPet I found. I never told the NeoPets site that
it was a NeoPet, I simply told them an idea about the Snowager. I am responsible
for the entire game... but it's more than a game now."
"I'm afraid I can't help much without a NeoPet to fight with," said Kage.
Just then his NeoP0rt glowed. And who game out of the light but Ritsuzen. "Ritsuzen!
But... how!?" Ritsuzen was now yellow. "Kage, when I was defeated, only the
Darkness was defeated, because that's what they were fighting against, not me.
The same thing happened to all the other NeoPets you tainted with Darkness."
It was a miracle. Ritsuzen was the strongest NeoPet here. We now had a great
I then took out my NeoP0rt and did a NeoPet Lookup. "Blue Male Ager, Level
35, outstanding stats... we're in for a tough fight here guys!" Then Orichalkon
stepped up to me.
"Don't worry Brad, I'm here with you the whole time!" My NeoP0rt started beeping.
"NeoWeapon Level 3 reached." Cubix walked over to Willie.
"Come on Willie, we've come too far to back down now!" Willie's NeoP0rt reacted.
Now Cubix had reached NeoWeapon Level 3. Ritsuzen stepped forward.
"I may have been your tool of evil... but now I will make up for my mistakes!"
Ritsuzen then received his first NeoWeapon. I walked forward to lead the group.
"We will not let you take over this world for your own personal gain! We will
defeat you, Sakari! You will lose!"
"We'll just see about that..."
To be continued...
