Quote of the Week


A quiet hum fell over the Lightwater Forest as its inhabitants began to settle down for the eventide. The same folk had been thoroughly enjoying the festivities that had been laid on for them within the walls of Meridell Castle by King Skarl earlier on that day but now it was time for rest. As the moon rose over the trees, its faint dappled light just about reaching the new shoots of spring below, Illusen Day was finally coming to a close. Shutters of the treehouses were being drawn as the occupants within them blew out their candles and headed off to bed.All of the occupants bar one. The Earth Faerie chose to gaze out of her window for just a little while longer.


Wintry Twists On Summer Meals



As the Month of Hunting comes to a close, it means only one thing: the approaching fun of summertime! Everyone will be sporting their sunglasses as they lay on the beach, slushie in hand. The news will be full of articles on the best beaches to visit, where to shop for your bathing suits, and how-to guides on getting the perfect beach waves. While those who live in Mystery Island will definitely be ready to buy their summer gear, those who live in colder climates are still struggling through harsh winter storms and frozen appendages. Terror Mountain is cold all year round and tends to be forgotten during the buzz of summer. This week, I decided to dedicate an entire article just for those awesome (and chilly!) Neopians who call Terror Mountain their home. Even if it’s snowing outside, you can still enjoy the fun of summer!

Improving Your Neopets Account



You’re an actual Neopian now - you’ve started to get your account set up and you feel pretty comfortable. What are the next steps to Neopian Domination? The answers lie in improving your account. Account Improvement is the key. Either in a single area (like earning neopoints) or in multiple areas (training a pet, earning avatars, participating in competitions). Account Improvement will lead you to not only enjoy your time on Neopets, but also to have a successful account. So where do people start in order to get these great accounts? In this article I’ll share some thoughts on where to begin on improving your account. A word of caution. There are no shortcuts. It does involve an investment of time and work. To start, one of the great things about Neopets is that it does offer various areas for people to pursue.

"I Wish to Become a Faerie" by fairy_350
Adeline was a misbehaved young Yellow Shoyru who's family lived in the cloud house which remained of Faerieland who always wished she could be painted Faerie. Her father told Adeline she could not be painted Faerie because it was out of their price range as they were not very wealthy. And this is where our story begins, a child arguing with her parent in the living room. "But fatherrrr...." Adeline whined loudly while smacking her tail on the ground. "I wanna be a cute faerie so badddd...."

"The Sisters of Pillar Grove" by blueys45
Wingen never wanted to be alone. But sometimes, he needed to be. The fire Wocky squeezed himself into a narrow alley between two buildings that was barely wide enough for a child like him. Upon hearing the echoes of boots against the metal walkways and the clamoring voices that followed, Wingen tucked in his tail and pulled the collar of his jacket over the ruff of orange fur around his neck. He quieted his breath and listened. The fingers of his free paw absentmindedly fiddled with a yellow, gem-like piece of magical candy; if the soldiers got too close for comfort, he would vanish in an instant.

The Neopian Protection Campaign
Now, this might be a contentious idea, but I believe that Neopia would be a safer place to live in if it were safer. I know, I know. You’re thinking, ‘What are you talking about? Everything is fine. Neopia is a good place to live.’ Well, I’m here to inform you that you are hideously wrong.
