"A Princess and Her Struggles" by kalir
Her petpet , a royal Anubis, mewed with delight and dropped the toy on her paws for the hundredth time. The small petpet made a happy purring sound and rubbed against her side. She picked up the toy and threw it across the yard. It bounced a few times on the rough sandy ground creating little dust clouds. The petpet yipped with delight and ran after it, kicking more sand into the air. As much as she loved her petpet, she was tired of the repetitiveness of her life. She was reading old fairy-tale scrolls in her favorite garden; A small private one designed by the finest architects and gardeners who came all the way from Shenkuu to build it as a gift of thanks for her. The garden contained only the most beautiful Lost Desert flowers. The walls surrounding the garden were tall and Desert Albats sat on each corner of it. They were trained to sense danger and would squawk loudly if there was ever a sign of it. They were also trained to make sure she didn’t escape, and it made her feel like a prisoner in her own home. Before architects from Shenkuu built it, they had gone through a terrible drought and were at risk of starving. As a response, she forced her father to send the citizens of Shenkuu a huge supply of Pleto Melons.

"Where are you, Caramel?" by kikiyomi
The touch of sun rays coupled with its warmness woke me up earlier than usual. I’m not exactly a light sleeper; my older twin, Caramel, could vouch for my grogginess. She would always be the one to wake me up saying, “C’mon Cannoli, the bakery was your idea! I prepared all the ingredients late last night, it's your turn to bake it!” And I would cynically reply, “Just chop my arm off, I’m made of biscuits after all.” “Yeah, too bad you don’t taste great,” Caramel would say dragging me off the bed. “Neither would you!” Then I would say under my breath: “Dark Chocolate is not a thing the customers would immediately grab off the shelves.” “What was that?” She would glare menacingly.If eyes could punch, I would have been beaten numerous times. Thankfully, my sibling charms always get the best of her. I would then tell her that “Dark Chocolate was the best type of chocolate there is to me”. From that flattery, she would instantly warm up, give me a tight squeeze and breakfast. That’s right that good o’l fresh pancakes and syrup, both our one of kind recipe and a good cup of mocha coffee to start the day. Honestly, I usually wake up to the smell of her baking but I always go right back to sleep, waiting for her to wake me.

"Petpetpet Wars" by herdygerdy
Wars rage across the face of Neopia every day. The pirates raid the city of Maraqua, while the forces of Darigan and Meridell clash with the hollow ring of steel upon steel. High in the skies above Neopia, the armies of the Resistance and Dr. Sloth duel on a daily basis. War weaves its way through the very fabric of Neopia. From legions of Neopets clashing on distant battlefields, to the schoolyard bully taking lunch money from his victims, war is everywhere. One war in particular has raged for generations. Far from the scorched earth of the Meridell battlefields, combatants live and die on a daily basis. In fields. In parks. In gardens. Between the blades of grass, the Petpetpets go to war. *** The two Mootix leaned closer to each other as the wind battered their faces. From the vantage point of the tiny lookout tower they could see to the horizon in every direction. Below them, the rest of the squad were sleeping soundlessly as dawn approached. The two lookouts could already see the dull glow climbing over the forest of grass blades. And somewhere in that forest, hiding, were the Cootys. One Mootix sniffed back the beginnings of a cold. “It'll be starting soon,” he muttered. “You ever seen it happen before, Bad?” the other Mootix asked nervously. ”
