The Korbats in the Pumpkin Patch

Asmundar was a clever little Eyrie, but there was one thing that he just couldn’t figure out tonight, and it had been bugging him and bugging him. He couldn’t get the Korbat face on his pumpkin just right. He had spent hours and hours using his claw on every pumpkin in his owner’s pumpkin patch, but he was a perfectionist and something just wasn’t right.

All That Jazz

Brian was disappointed. His neighborhood's Weewoo had not yet delivered the day's Neopian Times issue, twenty minutes after he usually came. Brian had wanted to get a jump on the day, but he couldn't if he was waiting on the post carrier.

Training School Friends

I made sure my hair was centered and my dress was not wrinkled too much. I wanted to make a good impression on my first day at the training school, so that I might make a friend. I stood there in silence in front of the whole room, while they looked at me.

Dalibor was on escort duty. The shadow Peophin was an up-and-coming solider in the kingdom of Psellio. He did not complain. He was honored to serve the royal family: King Anselm, Queen Adaeze and Princess Valenchesa. Whatever his orders, he obeyed without question.

Humbug and the Symol Hole

It was just another normal day for Humbug, the blue Noil. The normal routine consisted of getting up at the crack of dawn to go fishing with Nappox, do a few quests for Edna, and then continue on with his day. However, today seemed a little different.

"Humbug and the Symol Hole" by catytha_love_paz
It was just another normal day for Humbug, the blue Noil. The normal routine consisted of getting up at the crack of dawn to go fishing with Nappox, do a few quests for Edna, and then continue on with his day. However, today seemed a little different. "Good morning, little buddy! We have a big day ahead of us. I have a surprise for you later on," Nappox said as she leaned down to scratch a spot behind his ear. He was slightly disgruntled by the sound of that, seeing as how Nappox's surprises were usually never that pleasant for him, although he couldn't help his leg from starting to twitch at the scratches. He bobbed his head against her hand and followed her slowly out the door, wondering what this so called "surprise" was going to be. They continued on with their usual activities, and he started to wonder if she had forgotten about it altogether.

Do YOU Keep Fun Records?
I have to admit, my favorite petpage that I ever created was the one listing the pets I've given away. As of today, I've given away 88 zapped pets, and I'm looking to give away 100 total! Feeling inspired to keep more fun records, but unsure of what they should be, I asked my fellow players on the Neoboards about what fun records they keep for themselves. I got many interesting replies!

Fire-Born: Part Four
Fyora flew to a different part of the castle, and Vineti the Chocolate Aisha turned to the guard Aaron. “Right this way, miss,” he said, walking in front of her. She followed him down a long hallway with many doors, finally stopping in front of a gilded set of double doors, smaller than those in the main hall but still impressive. He opened one of them for her. “These are the guest quarters. I’ll be right outside if you need anything.”
