Cute plushie

Saluton kara! My name is Candy (candy_fizz) and I am very interested in adopting in an unconverted Faerie Peophin of any name format.

After writing so many applications, I've found it necessary to have a page for the generic plans for a Peophin, and the generic information about me.

If you've been directed here, the information here is intended to be more in-depth and is not tailored to any particular Peophin. The Faerie Peophin is referred to as Antain here.

However, if you're looking to adopt out an unconverted Peophin without the hassle of a blown-up mailbox, I've provided a story example in Plans at the end.

I do have other pages you can stalk, namely my My Portfolio, My Art Portfolio, Little Uglies, Confectionery, and all my pet's petlookups and petpages, located in the Neofamily tab.

Last Updated: 21/05/18, or check my userlookup or Little Uglies for how active I am!

Are you here and you A) Don't have an unconverted UFA or B) Aren't kindly checking this for any mistakes? Let me tell you about service instead cause this project page doesn't really concern you.

Why an unconverted Peophin?

1. I love Hippocampi

One day as I was updating Jharlyn's petpage with art, I realised that I had 3 Unis, a future Peophin, and I had previously thought my favourite animal as the fox.

That was a big lie! I only have one Neopet that vaguely resembles a fox, and Spyla came as a Xweetok from my sister so I had no say in the species.

I had also realised that it was not even horses I liked; it was a particular type of horse:

the Hippocampus.

Singular: Hippocampus | Plural: Hippocampi

At the Trevi Fountain, Rome by Alexander Augst
At the Trevi Fountain, Rome by Alexander Augst

They're a mythological creature with the front part of a horse and the hind part of a fish. In case the name is familiar, the name inspired the genus name of the seahorse and in turn, inspired the name of a part of the brain.

You might be thinking, what is the use of a horse with a fish tail?

Mosaic of Poseidon and his chariot pulled by four Hippocampi at the Baths of Neptune, Italy by Marie-Lan Nguyen

You use them to pull your chariot! That is, if you're a God. If you're Candy, you just really like their grace and their association with the sea & classics.

Neptune, or Poseidon is the ancient Classical God of the sea, and one of my favourite Gods!

I'm from New Zealand, two islands to the south-east of Australia. I grew up near the sea, and as I child I was often taken there on the weekends. I love the depth, and beauty of the ocean. As I learnt to swim from a young age the sea has always been more of a calming figure than the anxiety-inducing horror I know some people view it to be.

Then my parents took me on cruises around Australia and New Zealand, and I loved the days that were spent purely at sea, looking horizontal line where the sea meets sky all around. Obviously, I wanted to explore what was underneath the waves but alas! I'd have to do so in a submarine.

Eventually I learnt that there was a mythological creature called the Hippocampus that could totally take me on a magical tiki tour of the sea! Needless to say, I spent a lot of time daydreaming about that.

Unconverted Faerie Peophins have a longer fish-tail and a more muscular figure. They're much more suited to be a fantastical creature of the deep and the steed of Poseidon.

Such beauty, such grace!I'm sorry bby, you're beautiful too.

2. I love their colour scheme.

Their colour palette of yellow/orange/pink/purple has always been my favourite palette to pixel in.

In pixel art, it's very important to reduce the number of colours you use to pixel, and sometimes people forget you can use adjacent colours, (like how orange is an adjacent colour to red, but not blue) to shade artwork in. Yellow is adjacent to orange, and purple is adjacent to pink! For some reason, all those colours together look lovely to me.

Yellow is the lightest natural colour, and purple the darkest! This is serendipitous for my pixel art, and I love the dreamy tone of the pastels in this colour scheme.

You can see the difference, the unconverted has a more yellow spot and the converted has, transparent wings? I can't really see it.

Should have been more white, but why have white when you can have your favourite colour scheme?This is not a faithful rendition of the character,,, it's more the yellow and purple scheme I like :X

3. I need a Faerie Character for one of my plots

There are two plots going on with my characters. One of them I maintain with my sister, and the other takes place mainly in Faerieland/Krawk Island.

Faerieland/Krawk Island
Contains: Fef, Isap, Perfumer, Tleilaxu, and occasionally my other Neopets or my sister's.

This story starts off with Tleilaxu, who finds an orphaned speckled Aisha by the name of Fef. He takes the child with him to Krawk Island, where he seeks and finds a job with the infamous smugglers. Unable to find a room due to his questionable mutant colour and unfamiliar face, he wanders around in his boat until he finds a nice island which he proceeds to make a home on.

One of his friends is Perfumer, at this point a pirate Lutari working with the smugglers, and getting paid in ingredients for her perfumes. She's not very good at the start but eventually, she makes a tidy income from traders docking at the island.

Fef grows up, blissfully unaware of her brother's occupation. She makes a Maraquan Uni friend called Isap, who hangs out around the island, 'looking after' Fef in a way. When she grows up, she gets sent to the training academy and finds a job bussing tables at the Golden Dubloon. Fef is eventually turned into a mutant Peophin by a Maraquan sea-witch who disliked her consorting with pirates. When she tries to find Perfumer (as Tleilaxu is working at this time) she's gone! Fef eventually catches Tleilaxu at his smuggling job, and they have a nice long talk about his illegal shenanigans.

Perfumer forgot to tell Fef and Lei she was leaving for Faerieland! After the fall there was confusion in Faerieland for some time, but they were encouraging people to come help and rebuild. Perfumer thought they would appreciate her perfumes better, and so set off.

Fef sometimes swims to the coast near Faerieland to hang out with Perfumer. Isap is now her guardian most of the time. Fef creates Little Uglies as a club for ugly pets.

Contains: Aoza, Cers, Isap, Jewu, Jharlyn, Joekio, Joza, Laur, Poysion, Rexu, Spyla, Sunbond, Tekyre, and Todu.

A fun little world-building project with my sister, all of these pages have stories and content. Most of these Neopets are hers.

This storyline does not concern you unless you want to see the quality/quantity of stories we write.

4. I'd love one more avatar granting pet!

Faerie Peophin

Not a good reason, but when I'm done with their pet page I can put them as my active and have a matching font & avatar & active!

I also have other pets that grant avatars: Fef's Mutant Faellie gives 'Faellie - It's Alive!', Spyla my Snow Xweetok gives out "Snow Day", and Jharlyn, my Halloween Uni gives out 'Uni - Nightsteed'.

5. The unconverted Faerie Peophin is square

It creates a nice padding around the Peophin, and I think that's rather aesthetically pleasing. This is in massive part due to my pixelling aesthetic.

Mutants are beautiful
Consider the mutant Tuskaninny as an example of this as well.

Plans for the Peophin

I will give them a story, like all my Neopets! The gist of which is the Faerie Peophin owns a glassware shop in Faerieland.

I can promise a full petpage of story & art. I've done the most work on Poysion and Perfumer, but I can show you my other pages as well: Isap, Jharlyn, and Spyla.

It's not intended to be like petpages where people put short biographies, or a pet's likes and dislikes. I'd prefer to write 10k of pure story, where the information about them can be gleaned between the lines. I can instead stick their biography in their section in my portfolio, where I talk about my pets.

Isap Jharlyn Perfumer Poysion Spyla

There's not much I can promise pampering-wise; I'm not into book reading, customization, or gourmet foods, but I do love going to the Faerie Employment agency! The Peophin works for the Faeries anyway as a glass-maker, so I'd love to one day have them complete 1,000 jobs.

Though I'm not into book-reading, for some reason I love seeing capital letter statistics on a pet's petlookup, the ULTIMATE GENIUS intelligence, and EXCELLENT strength. I love them. I think it's a sign that Neopet is well-loved, so I try to achieve that for all my pets. The Peophin would be no different, and they'd have capital letter stats for their strength, defence, agility, and intelligence!

I'm not on Neopets for customization, so their customization would be pretty simple, just a Cloud Castle Background. I'd love to see their beautiful art in its entirety!

Future Customisation

Cloud Castle Background

If they already have a petpet, I'd probably keep it. It's always fun trying to weave pre-existing things into stories. Otherwise, I'm not sure if I would add a petpet, or even what petpet it would be!

I'm also planning on an adoptable set for each of my sister and mines' Neopets! Here is a hippocampus one, which is for both Fef (mutant Peophin) and Antain.

Adoptable set:
Unlike my other adoptable sets, please ask before using!

I already have Shoyru, Perfumer Bottle, Lutari, and Usul sets!

I admit, the BC is quite scary but I think I'd like to get them at least one BC trophy.

Faerie ploosh

I also have a plushie gallery where I try to put plushies of my Neopets in them, if they exist in the colour & species combination. Of course, this would extend to Antain and I'd keep a Plushie Doppelgänger of them.

Antain would reside on candy_happiness with Isap and Fef, and I'd dub candy_happiness my Hippocampus account. It's not my main account, but why keep all your eggs in one basket? It's easy enough to switch between my accounts, and I spend a lot of time on each account regardless, do not fret if you think they would not be loved!

In the unlikely event I leave, they would be adopted out; no point in leaving a Neopet I'm sure someone else would love. If you'd rather them be sent back to you, they'd reside with my sister until she was able to contact you.


Hello, I'm Antain.Name: Antain, a rather princely name if Perfumer's teasing is anything to go by.
Gender: Male
Age: Antain seems to be in his late twenties.
Occupation: Glassblower, glassmith, glassmaker, and glazier.
Friends: Perfumer, Fef, Isap, and Aoza.
Enemies: Fef's older brother Tleilaxu, and Aboa.
Personality: Quiet, charismatic, and debonair, Antain enjoys his craft and the little notoriety that comes with his abilities. A bit of a perfectionist, he puts a lot of hard work into his art. Sometimes Perfumer will have to coax him out with the promise of biscuits and good gossip.

As his hobby and the main source of his income, he is a glass maker. He makes glass panes for the carpentry stores and occasionally sells items to Faerie Furniture.

He doesn't have an actual shop with goods on display; his house/workshop is in a tower and he works making private commissions and from contracts.

After he is contacted and agrees to a contract with Perfumer, he makes the perfume bottles Perfumer sells in her shop. They become fast friends after that, and every Tuesday Perfumer closes her shop for the afternoon and invites Antain over for tea.

He also made some panes in her house and helped her install the windows after she bought a plot of land. Perfumer is currently in the process of moving in, and very happy with how the house looks!

Eventually, he gifts her a glass Lutari set.

Examples of his glassmaking abilities

I have a theory that the Faerie are elitist; they seem very snooty. I'm sure other people could explain this better but the two best pieces of evidence for this I've seen were Xandra in The Faerie's Ruin, and Bruno from The Tale of Woe plot. They both hold a distrust of the Faeries, who seem to hold a lot of the power and turn a blind eye

Antain is painfully aware of this but the Faeries take up much of his business, and showing a preference for taking Neopets commissions would hurt his business hard!

There's nothing much he can do, and aside from secretly chatting to Perfumer about it he's quite nervous about it all.

Past Application Dump

From previous applications and whatnot, enjoy! Some will need to be dragged and dropped to see their full size, or hover for commentary.

For a Peophin called Comet.




Gently, Comet moves the little figurine he made for himself across the table, to a perfume bottle gifted by a friend. The glass clink gently against each other in the dim, and he opens the bottle to let the familiar scent of lavender waft out. The shadows of the buildings have since passed the length of the city; it is now the sacred time between the sweltering of the afternoon and the cool of the night. Sunset will soon come for Faerieland.

They say he daydreams too much.

But really, there was nothing wrong with daydreaming, was there? He still had a job, and a nice apartment in a tower overlooking Faerieland, and he had friends.

He holds his figurine up to the light, and in the dim scrutinises it for any imperfections. An idle musing about cleaning it pops into his head, so he wanders to a small glass cabinet to pick up a square cloth.

It's nice to have a haven, he thinks. A place where he was safe and free to feel whatever he wished away from the prying eyes of others.

The polishing is slow as he stops sometimes to just stare at his handicraft, refracting the few beams of light that have reached his workshop.

He also thinks that any harsh opinion of other Neopets holds a little shard of the truth.

Even if that Neopet was his friend.

About Candy

main (candy_fizz) / side (candyfied) / side (candy_happiness) / side (candy_wicked)

I have a lot more accounts than I need! I have a lot of free transfers each month so I'd be happy to adopt anytime.

On Neopets:

I go by Candy on here as it bears a strange resemblance to my real name, and I've been here for around 9 years! Most of the time I like doing art for my pets, and fleshing out or writing their stories.

I'm on here with my sister Sunlit, and I enjoy world-building and chatting about Neopets with her. She's a part of my desire to stay on this site and keep on working on my characters.

I lurk the AC & PC, chatting on boards with few replies because I feel those boards are safer! Who knows what might have happened on a board with 100 replies. Of course, it's also nice when random strangers bump your board so I try to see if there's anything in common as well.

Neopets actually started my love for pixelling, so I owe a lot to Neopets! I also learnt to code here, but really my love for pixel art could not have come from anywhere else and it's a big part of me! I keep an art portfolio on Zensunni's petpage if you'd like to snoop. I hope to keep pixelling throughout my life because I think you should keep them up.

Candy's Art Portfolio

I also have a portfolio to keep track of my goals and introduce my pets but it's always messy since I forget to use it.

Candy's Portfolio

I run a pixel & code site called Confectionery! I remember being young and unable to do art for myself, while jealously stalking the pages of others so this has been a dream for many years in the making! I hope that while Confectionery provides quality pixels, the pixel tutorials can also help people start pixel art.


Little Uglies is my little pet project. Some colours are really underrepresented on Neopets like snot and swamp gas so hopefully, they can find some love here? I love listing new pets, especially if they're snot or swamp gas so please come on by!

Little Uglies

Admittedly I have a soft spot for underdogs. What can I say? I love them all.

Drawn for Mike Drawn for Ally

I've also started an adoption agency with my sister! A lot of our pets were adopted from other people, and we hope to spread the love!

Fun fact: All my adopted pets (from people other than my sister) have been Peophins/Unis

These are the cuties I have adopted out:

Ileyo jovui brezzer

I enjoy collecting things, so I have many galleries.

I started The Plushie Emporium after looking at someone else's Plushie gallery, and I'm glad to say it's now very large, at size 100 and I hope it will be increased one day! Nowadays, it's comforting to know that something I could not have achieved a few years ago is today within reach. A lot of people also helped me to reach this, and so I am also reminded of the generosity and kindness of the community.

Perfumer's shelf was started for Perfumer, and because it's small I've also included eyes! I love eyes, they're so fun to draw!

My Krawk Island merchandise is stored in Pirate Goodies, and would not be around if it were not for the encouragement of a fellow Neopian! I used to love evil things like witches and pirates when I was younger, so Krawk Island was the team for me.

I'd come across a list of sci-fi references in Neopets, and so was inspired to create a gallery of Sci-fi Goodies! I hope to expand it today, but I have other matters requiring neopoints, so perhaps I can complete this some other day.

Off Neopets:

Time Zone: NZT (NST +21 if my math is correct) | Myer-Briggs personality type: INFP
Fandoms: Dune, Game of Thrones, Homestuck, Gravity Falls, Hannibal, ATLA, Westworld, and Okami.

I'm among the lower quartile age-wise here! If you snoop around my sister and Is' accounts you can probably narrow it down quite nicely but I dislike talking about my age due to possible account theft.

I enjoy sci-fi, it's nice to think about all the cool technology and space-fights that could go on in a couple millennia, and I'd love to see how far humanity can go in terms of the space race today!

As seen by my pet's names, my favourite series is the Dune series by Frank Herbert. Tleilaxu and zensunni were named after groups in the series (think of the Sith and Jedi) and both are cool groups of people!

This subtly influenced my desire to learn Esperanto. It's supposed to be a universal language to stop the language barrier! Unfortunately, it's not really taken on but I'd still like to maintain hope. It's rather easy to learn and of course, you gain many benefits from learning a second language.

Outside of pixel art, another hobby I have is volunteering/service.

The favourite thing I do is run a thing where we plant and take care of seedlings, that then go off to improve our ecosystem! Conservation work is a great thing, and it's fun to be out in nature knowing that you're improving it.

Unfortunately, I've not a very green thumb and a few of them appear to be dying. Sunlit tested their chlorophyll levels a while ago and apparently, they're fine so I think it's to do with the sun.

I also volunteer at a hospice shop where the proceeds go towards palliative care. I love seeing the new things that come in each week, and of course, my interpersonal abilities get polished too.

In short, there's not much to say without delving into personal details and my personal life, but I hope that's enough!

Why choose Candy?

1. I offer art/stories

This is the main reason I needed a Peophin in the first place. This is how I care for my pets, by giving them stories and petpages, not gourmet food or whatever it is others do. Not that gourmet food is bad!

Petpage examples:

Perfumer and Poysion have the most completed stories so far.

2. I am active on Neopets

I owe a lot to this site! cough cough pixels I also have two sites to maintain, and a sister to chat with.

3. I'm alright with whatever plans you wish to keep

I'm happy to give them back should you change your mind but you will break my heart if you ask for them back after say, one day. I'm also vaguely sure it's against the rules?

I'm happy to keep whatever plans you have in place for them, for example, keeping the gender or petpet. The main thing I need to do with the Peophin is to integrate them into my Neopian story as a glass-maker, so if you'd like them to have the personality of the most angelic angel, or the most devious devil I am super okay with that!

4. Maybe you should judge me for yourself?

There are a lot of pages of mine you can stalk, and perhaps looking at them would allay any concerns a little. Check out the Neofamily tab for all my permanent pets! I've linked their petpages and petlookups for your perusal.

I would not be trading them, and if I ever left they would be put up for adoption, or given to my sister to be returned to you.


Neopian Plot

aboa the candy poogle
Petpage (Confectionery) / Petlookup

Neopoints make Neopia go around, and a cunning Poogle knows this intimately. A restocker, she will often go around forcibly offering on trades and auctions, and occasionally bullying the shier folk into giving her great discounts. She loves that profit margin. Her shop Confectionery does not sell candy, to the dismay of many!

I adopted this cutie from my sister.

FEF the mutant peophin
Petpage (Little Uglies) / Petlookup

Growing up is hard, and nobody understands. Growing up with a mutant for a brother and a lack of social abilities is even harder. A bubbly speckled Aisha finds herself on the bad end of a sea witch's curse and learns to deal with it by opening a club of sorts for similar Neopets.

I adopted this little sweetheart from Max, she's perfect.

PERFUMER the rainbow lutari
Petpage / Petlookup

This girl loves her craft. The owner of a Faerieland Perfumery, being genial and attentive to her customers has earned her a great reputation around the shopping district, unlike Aboa. To her, Fef's a little cutie, and she's known Tleilaxu for a long time, so much so that she still relies on his smuggling to obtain rare ingredients.

Adopted from my sister, all I need to do is to finish her neohome and story!

tleilaxu the mutant ixi
Petpage (Candy's Portfolio) / Petlookup

After being bullied for most of his life, he hasn't grown stronger. He hasn't grown weaker either. Lei loves his sister Fef to bits, and despite being quite distraught about her transformation to a mutant, he's taken the news fairly well.

Managed to get a friend to create him/poked her into doing it, she didn't like him that much so she gave Lei to me! He's named after a mysterious group in Dune. I still need to trade for his background.

I'm hoping to enter the NT with a series about Fef growing up, and her relationship with Lei. It was at 2k words the last time I checked? Perfumer would be a side character, not sure how involved she'd be yet.

Gaian Plot

ISAP the maraquan uni
Petpage / Petlookup

The large seas around Hainan are not fully charted; there are accounts of beasts that hide their great, lumbering bodies in those depths. A deposed Queen of Primordials is employed as the emissary of such creatures, escaping the terrible fate of her kin.

Hippocampi are so beautiful, a huge thanks to Quizzer for letting adopt Isap in! She's all done, just her story left to do.

JHARLYN the halloween uni
Petpage / Petlookup

Nivalis sits near the sea, a port city that sprawls from the ubiquitous snow-capped mountains of the region to the shivering sea. Frightened of her inevitable duties as an adviser to her sister, Jharlyn sets out for warmer countries where her status as Princess is unknown.

Back when I couldn't afford anything I sent in a request for a Halloween Uni on one of those dream sites. Sometime later, Ashley sent me a neomail about adopting Jharlyn!

POYSION the christmas shoyru
Petpage / Petlookup

The stars were born from the shards of the second sun that broke off when Sunbond stole it. After being wished upon, she becomes the healer of a small, forested village. She receives occasional visits from her 'mother', though it is mostly for shelter; Sunbond is not a good mother. The townsfolk are grateful for her assistance, though she can come off as quite odd sometimes.

I created her on my main, and her name is a misspelling of poison.

SPYLA the snow xweetok
Petpage / Petlookup

The Queendom of Nivalis is fairly ruled, albeit by a monarch suffering from an excess of magic which may one day consume her. Often said to be as cold as snow, Spyla hides beneath her masks and robes, retreating into a well-made suit she has long felt comfortable wearing. She misses her sister greatly, and without her, has a lack of true friends.

Adopted from my sister, a poor colour she may have but she is loved no less for it!

All by himself because he's a fandom neopet

zensunni the brown uni
Petpage (Candy's Art Portfolio) / Petlookup

(this doesn't make much sense unless you know Dune, spoilers ahead!)
Rather dissatisfied with the Atreides regime, he joined and became one of the conspirators helping to overthrow the God-Emperor. Unfortunately, he was found out. He's pretty stuck in the old ways.

Again, I influenced my friend to create him, she grew bored of him so he was sent to me!
