Janet and Jane: The Case of the Framed Detectives

"How could someone possibly look so much like you?" Natia asked with no regard for volume.

"I have no idea," I replied. "But whoever did it did a good job."

Chronicles of a Caped Crusader: Long Shadows: Part Seven

The spell cast by Morguss and the Three had been successful; the Defenders had arrived too late to stop them from resurrecting Captain Nefarious. Morguss cackled evilly at the gathered heroes and her leer turned more cruel. She turned to look at Nefarious and bowed.

Beneath the Haunted Woods: Part Six

The entire chamber was consumed in pitch-black darkness. The air thick, cold as the ice caves. The only sounds were the distant echoes of water dripping onto the floor and the faint howling of the wind travelling through the many holes and tunnels scattered around the cavern.

Bottled Faeries Inc.: Part Four

“Well,” I said, adjusting the brim of my sunhat to block out the harsh sunrays, “this was probably the worse thing that could have happened.” Soon after Marty and I had fled Jhuidah’s cooking pot, I had received a neomail. The small, enchanted yellow envelope had repeatedly jammed itself against my thigh until, grudgingly, I had plucked it from the air and opened it.

Duplicity: Part Seven

Gali quivered while the guards poured a bitter liquid down his throat. All parts of his body shook out of control, disobeying his every command. He wanted to push the guards away, ask them what was going on, but he could not.

Lord Faerigan - Fyora's Role in the Meridell Wars: Part Two

"Oh don’t worry about me. I just need a bit of a breather. Hmm...actually I was wondering if you could remind me when Faerieland would pass over Darigan Citadel next."

"Certainly Fyora, that would be tomorrow actually."

"Tomorrow? Oh, well, please mark some time on my schedule so I can visit with Lord Darigan. Call it a diplomacy meeting."

Strange Strangers: Part Two

Unfortunately, I couldn't get back fast enough to watch the whole unraveling of the operation. By the time I got back, I missed out on seeing the insider get caught and the Titanium members rounding up members of the Company before dragging them back to the house where the operation was done.

"Cafeteria Food" by forestfleet
Chris burst through the door. "I've got a job!" he shouted. Starry, the blue lupe, sipped tea while she sat behind the small green coffee table. "I suppose anyone can get a job these days." Redwhisper, the red Scorchio, looked over from his stone chair. "Cool. What's the job?" "Your Neoschool teacher, teaching Science." "And now you lost me!" "What?" Chris asked, shaking his head. "Back during the Fall of Faerieland I was making healing potions! Ones that weren't particularly potent, but I digress." "Look," Starry said. "It has nothing to do with a lack of ability to make potions, to teach, et cetera- It's that you're saying it's at school. Our school." Chris sat down on an orange, hovering Virtupets bed. Slowly, he nodded. "You're right. That'd be terrible." "Thank you!" Starry sighed. "But I am a terrible person. School starts in two weeks. See you then." Starry bit her lower lip. The Scorchio shot a concerned glance at her, and she returned a nervous smile.

A Journey In Friendship
Zilean, an older Pirate Krawk and an eccentric sorcerer who calls a clock tower his home, had always had an obsession with time travel. After countless years and failed attempts, he was finally successful at designing an enchantment that made it possible to travel in time. The enchantment took the form of a glowing orb that emitted a green smoke so thick it could fill your lungs. All Zilean had to do was close his eyes, imagine where and when he wanted to go, reach out, and touch the orb.

Desperately Needed Wearable Items: Pet Hobbies.
However, there is still a gap in the wearables market that I think is yet to be filled: hobbies! There’s so much in Neopia, for players & pets, to help pass the time, it seems criminal not to have wearables to match! Therefore I have taken it upon myself to compile some examples of much-needed wearables, and most importantly, supplied some suggestions for people from what wearables are already available (yes, you’re right, perhaps I need a hobby).

Common Myths About Writing for the Neopian Times
I happened upon a few topics discussing rumors about how to get published into the Neopian Times. These comments intrigued me, so after I scribbled down a list of the most common ones, I poured myself a sixth cup of coffee, and left for the Neopian Times headquarters to see for myself if they were accurate or not.
