Acquaintances

Brightvale castle is almost always silent, especially once the moon rises. Early to bed and early to rise makes Neopets, uh... something, something, and wise. Roberta's heard her uncle recite that proverb a million times over, but she always forgets how it ends.

Underwater

I'm a water Lutari who's lived her entire life in a network of caves deep under the ocean. I've never seen the sky, or the sun, or other people—except for my mum, but that one is a given for most kids, isn't it? I sleep in a bed of warm, blue sponge—magic, no doubt—and go fishing once a week with my mum for what she calls the "necessities." I play with various things my mum says come from the "surface," and occasionally the odd plushie that pops up in the fishing hole.

Mystery Island Traveller's Diary

Oh what a beautiful day! Gone are the dreary clouds and bone-chilling humidity of Shenkuu’s late spring, and arrived are the hot sun and blue skies of Mystery Island. The airship ride from Shenkuu to a small island off the coast of Moltara, and the subsequent boat ride to Mystery Island, was very enjoyable. As we lost elevation, the damp air dried and the clouds dissipated, paving the way for sun, sun, and more sun!

Usuki Singing Stars #31: Lola Minds Her Manners

“Nope,” said Lola. Her smile widened. “Ms. Butterworth has invited me to an elegant dinner at Kelp! She’s taking me because she’s been so proud of my Neoschool grades.” Patricia and Sparkles sighed enviously. Kelp was the fanciest restaurant in all of Neopia! Located in Maraqua, the restaurant had a reputation for serving the most exquisite entrees, the delicate china plates in the dining room and being one of the few places in Neopia where Neopians could dress up in their best clothes and jewellery.

Adventures in Mystery Island

Dappletail, a young female Glowing Uni, woke up. It was a beautiful blue-skied day in Mystery Island, her home, and she could smell the ocean breeze coming in from her opened window. Looking outside it, the palms swayed in the breeze and there were even a few wild Taigars running about.

Overly-Complicated Slushie Shop Analysis



Happy Valley is a happy place, why else would it be called Happy Valley? Jolly residents spread cheer throughout the streets and show that the warmest town in Neopia is indeed found at the frozen base of Terror Mountain. These dandy denizens come from different backgrounds and species, but one thing that they can all agree on is that it is never too cold to have a slushie. The Slushie Shop is considered by many to be the gem of Happy Valley, neopets flock from all over Neopia to sample the frosty goodness of one of the shop’s famous slushies. “But why slushies in a perpetually winter wonderland?” You might ask. Today I am here to find out, I am going to give you an overly-complicated analysis of the Slushie Shop.
