"Stowaway" by goldmoon_
"Have you no shame?” The voice comes barreling through the hold, snaking around the corners of boxes and through the heavy netting in which Nellie is hiding. She squeezes her eyes shut, coils her long Gelert ears in by her knees, wills herself to stay still and not give herself away. But the weight of the heavy rope lifts and she utters a small cry. There, above her, stands Captain Dimitri. Broad and imposing, his thick Meerca tail stiff behind his back, he glowers through bushy eyebrows. “Stowing away on my ship?” She stutters, not expecting a discovery so early in the journey, and by the captain himself, no less. “S-Sir, I—” He sniffs and motions two of the crew forward with just a crook of his finger. Her explanation withers and she gulps, feeling herself lifted by the armpits and brought out of the hold. They encourage her up the splintered ladder, up onto the deck where the sunlight blinds her despite its low place on the horizon. The other crew-members pause in their tasks to take in the unexpected newcomer in their midst. Her pleading gaze flits between each one, begging for someone to step in and save her. But their eyes are tired, impassive. They are here to do their duties, not to intervene on a trespasser's behalf.

The History of the Games Master Challenges
Hello again, my fellow Neopians! Over this past week, we have been reintroduced to one of Neopia’s greatest and mostly anticipated events: the Games Masters Challenge! As it has been happening in every November over the past few years, in order to be a part of the challenge, you have to choose between two teams and, for this year, it is Knights vs. Raiders! Today, I’m not here to argue about which team is up for the win, but to tell the history of past Games Masters Challenges, ever since the first edition.
