This is the part where I rant about my kids! I will talk a bit about my pets, both character-wise and neopet-wise. Nothing better than showing off what I currently have as a way to demonstrate how things will go, right?(please note that i am only listing trophies acquired by me!)
pantheon and mythos
In last two years, I picked back up worldbuilding. Looking back at the base I created around 2013, basically everything had to be changed, which means even after two years of work, a lot of stuff is still extremely bare-bones. One of my favourite things to figure out, and therefore one of the most developed areas, is related to gods and spirits. This section is reserved for them, specifically the ones that have a representation on neopets.
This is a constant work in progress, as I always find myself not only adding other deities to fill specific roles, but also changing the existing ones to interact with the new arrivals. The gods are intentionally vague, despite that. Their construction is focused on myths and their impact on the world, on how their worshippers see them. This is something I do in an effort to keep them grand and alien, as opposed to try and humanize them.
Despite the very big intro to this section, it is very inconsequential and unrelated to ice cream bunny. I just like talking about my worldbuilding. Andromeda (sonictheyurble92)
is a very sad bear but she brings me so much joy. I've been wanting a grey yurble since at least 2012, and that dream came true November 2019. I was asleep when the UC santa happened, but my best friend Ella
wasn't. Instead of grabbing something for herself, she snagged Roma for me, and I couldn't be more grateful. (ella i know you're reading and i love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Andromeda is nature, specifically linked to woodlands and forests. With strong ties with the winter season, she's associated with the end of cycles, especially as means for new beginnings. Often sought out by those burdened by life, Andromeda is considered the deity of healing and mourning. Antares (razor_x71)
was A PAIN to get. In terms of achievements on neopets, he's my biggest one without a doubt. I had two chains going (both having started with Andromeda in mind)
, and I was able to break directly to BN T4 with both. From march to october I was frenetically trading trying to get this bear, and it was a rollercoaster of emotions. They're the number one reason I don't even want to think about going up to T7 from scratch for the bunny, lol. Shout out to Ella for having to deal with my multiple mental breakdowns during this journey and having to downtrade with me in the end, and Vic for finally ending my suffering and trading razor with me!!
The deity of war and retribution. Revered by rebels and the underdogs of society, Antares preaches change with a more hands-on approach. He asks for his followers to stand up for themselves, and to fight for what they believe in. A master strategist, not only Antares advocates for acting on your anger (as not to submerge to it)
, but also to know when to act and how to move the pieces on the board.
Andromeda and Antares are considered consorts, as both have strong aspects of renewal, change, and the end of cycles. While Antares has a bigger focus on destruction and Andromeda on creation and growth, both have strong overlaps - there needs to be destruction for there to be creation, both in nature and in human matters. They are so heavily associated with one another that, when banning the worship of Antares, the Ophidian royal family also changed Andromeda's name to Roma, as a way to distance her from her wife.
was adopted via app. I adore them, and have zero regrets, but oh boy did I overwork myself. I had over a month of art block after squeezing all my creative juices dry in the period of three days in which i made said app. Forced myself out of an art block by giving myself an even bigger art block. Their name means Divines in portuguese btw it was not just for a misspell.
Vega is a deity that patrons the realms of water and life. Fluidity is a prevalent aspect of the deity, from their outward appearance and depictions, to their active presence in the world. Waves reflecting the night sky, the flow of a creek, the sound of rain falling atop a lake - to their followers, those things are examples of gift granted by their god. One of their most common depictions in iconography is a hippocampus with a body made of blue, sparkly energy - not too dissimilar from the night sky.
, much like Andromeda and Antares, was a longterm goal of mine. One of the first UCs I yearned for, before I even knew exactly what were UCs. I was keeping an eye out for mutant hissis that I vibed with while trading for razor, and despite having an offer good enough for VWN ones, it was Forsaken that made me destroy my second yurble chain. I have both snake and yurb now so its ok :)
The Umbra Woods, located in northern Aldalar, are one of those places where spirits tend to get stuck to. There are other landmarks around the world known for having the same issue, but the Woods are particularly nasty - to the point where, long ago, the gods felt the need to intervene. The naga, known as Echo of the Forsaken Ones in myths, was sent to, well, declutter a bit. Some of the souls, particularly the most troublesome ones, are imbued into masks (crafted by the only and one Echo)
, so the soul's energy is able to go somewhere. It's not the cleanest solution to the problem, but it's efficient. They have a lot
The Titan (Titan123_copper)
is my second UC mutant scorchio. My first was also my first UC, and I grew somewhat attached. I impulse traded them for Penitentiary, however, and Titan is a replacement. It's alright, though, as I do prefer Titan' name (even if it is objectively an worse name format).
Titan is the guardian of a sunken temple to Vega. Created and trained by the deity with the intent of protecting the sacred site, the almost-dragon-like creature found themself lonely after parting from their creator. Vega had also grown quite attached to Titan, and seeing how sad their companion was alone at the temple, decided to drop a ball of energy into the sea. The little ball quite quickly took the shape of an ethereal crocodile, and soon enough Titan and Styx - the name it calls itself - became inseparable.
are two sides of the same coin. Both fill the role of psychopomps, guiding souls to the afterlife. Lestya is gentle and sorrowful, making sure that those that have passed are met with understanding and kindness. Some souls are cursed, some are plain
unlucky. Lestya is not the one that deals with those. The Judge, they call him, is cold. There is no merciful smiles or heartfelt conversations waiting when judgement is the one to come for you. There is only chilling darkness.Lestya
was found stuck in the pound as a basic lenny, zapped for a while, and later morphed into a draik then dipped into the rainbow fountain.Penitentiary
was traded for a BN UC Mutant Scorchio, which I briefly mentioned on Titan's section.
is my lab-rat, and has been my lab-rat on and off for about 6 years. Due to her constant changes, he is the one that I play dress-up with the most. Also, thanks to her chaotic energy, I have been enjoying entering her in the beauty contest, having won three trophies so far.
Mel is an elder god. Not associated with any pantheon, no myths linked to his name. The only way his existence is known, weirdly, is due to her interest on particularly flashy individuals. Those who she deem fashionable enough are rewarded with magic and knowledge. Oddly enough, the few who have contact with the entity claim that his preferred visage is that of a lizard.
Doctors, scholars, priests - the general population. While most are spread between the continents of Aldalar and Essera in my yet unnamed world, two are realworld-based characters. Sometimes those two real world characters leak into other projects.Kyn (coocoo101722)
is my favourite. They're the neopet that I've had the longest (since Dec. 2009). I love customizing them, and with the exception of my lab-rats, he's the one that changes outfits the most. I'm currently rushing him to lv250 so I can start training them for real. (only over a hundred levels + 850 codestones to go!)
Kyn is a young adult artist and photographer trying to make a living with their roommate, Vivienne, so that they can support their dog daughter, Nit. Kyn is very anxious and shy, but once you gain his trust, they will not stop rambling about art and/or dogs. One of the two real world setting characters I have on neopets, as the others no longer felt right in this virtual pet world. However, considering Kyn makes his way into most of my brain projects anyway, I could never even fathom the idea of not having them on neopets.Vivienne (crowtree)
has a presence on neopets mostly because I don't want to separate her and Kyn. Some time ago she was another skunk zafara, but I didn't like the name. So now she's crowtree. She's currently on my side while I try to get the last pet avvy I need, but usually she is right next to Kyn. c:
Violinist and alternative model, Vivienne finds herself drawn to the darker things in life. By that I mostly mean everything she owns has to be black (or white, or grey - that doesn't ring as nice though)
. A casual witch who has crow friends and lives with her best friend (and their dog daughter) in NYC. She's just enjoying her best, goth, life.
was an impulse trade that I have 0 regrets about. Traded a plural pokemon RW for them. That's how Dr. Hubris came to neopets - by throwing a decent fodder out of the -blocked- They balance my humours by bringing me joy :]
Jannik is a plague doctor. He is weird
. No one has ever seen her without it's gear, no one knows where he came from, no one is certain what
she is. Regardless, they have helped people in time of need, so it is free to stay.
The Witch (Witchless)
is a bounty hunter. Her name is tied to many deeds, her reputation precedes her. And yet, there still is so much mystery, so many rumours being whispered around taverns. Joshua was once an adventurer, travelling the world with her friends. Many years have passed since then, and most of their group have retired. Some found their places in important positions of power, others in family. Joshua's thirst for adventure and danger never quenched, her job is still not done.Sirene (8053)
was one of the ones that found their place in power. She started out as a young cleric of Vega, filled with purpose and wanderlust. Now, she finds herself as the high priestess of one of the most important temples to her deity. Her job doesn't allow for much travel anymore, but that doesn't stop Sirene from meeting her companions from time to time.Paciência (Paolinhafofs)
, on the other hand, often joins the Witch on her adventures, not having lost the taste for dungeon crawling and going into wild goose chases across the continent. She has important duties herself, but as a diplomat, it is part of her job to travel around. Sure, going to haunted ruins to deal with an abomination of nature is not part of the diplomatic job per se, but I'm sure the king can wait another day or two before P returns with the news.Witchless
was traded for, and later morphed by me. 8053
was a gift from Ella, my best friend. Paolinhafofs
is my first ever neopet, created alongside my first account. I don't consider her the neopets I've had the longest because she spent at least 8 years encased in ice alongside my first account! Painted her darigan almost as soon as I got her back, just like she was always meant to be.
The ones that don't fit either category above. This section includes those that are permanent pets with no character attached to them, or those which I haven't yet decided what's to be of them.buguei
is just a little robot. They don't have much yet, but I appreciate them. I have spent 8 yurble morphing potions trying to zap them robot. Please just zap robot already my crops are dying i just want my last converted longterm goal
is the name of one of my Guild Wars 2 characters, and since it was available the goblin running my brain made me create them. She does have a character, but I can't be bothered to explain GW2 lore right now, whoops! They're nonbinary and also a sapient plant person.
was created by me during the last purge. She used to host one of my real world characters, Anni, but since I decided to distance my real world characters from neopets, Alemanha is now being revamped. I thought about trading her for a couple days before realising how much I'd regret that :) The two contenders so far are 1) victorian lady who's husband mysteriously disappeared and now lives alone with her chambermaid/best friend ;), or 2) transmasc nonbinary royalboy zafara who's A Very Close Friend to the king of yet unnamed nation of my worldbuilding brainworms. (I am leaning towards option two).
is just a pet I like to have around. They're just a library cat that enjoys sleeping. For some reason, they have a special affinity towards sleeping on top of Bram Stoker's Dracula.
, much like creecher, is a deep character with a wonderful concept and beautiful stories. Spooky is a vampire and she likes blood. She is the coolest vampire in town. She is lesbiab.
i love she
is my neopets self insert. A neosona if you will. I am not a furry, but
, I say as I try to find an excuse as to why I have a neosona. They're named after My Chemical Romance's song This Is Not A Fashion Statement, It's A Deadwish
because I am not an emo furry. I promise I am not an emo furry its just a misunderstanding i am not
is a representation of my love for egyptian mythology. He's specifically based off of Anubis! Shout out to the person who gave me his desert clothes you are the mvp
is, much like the name suggests, a clown. She is quite new, and I haven't put much thought into her yet. I know she's going to be an aroace lovecore clown and that's all I got. I enjoy her.
is a Critical Role a fanpet. I created and painted him myself. He's based off of Caleb Widogast, the sad wizard of the Mighty Nein. Trading for his wig was unnecessarily hard for some ungodly reason (despite being 1~2gbc)
so that is also an achievement of mine!
is a Guild Wars 2 fanpet. Named after Eir Stegalkin, mentor of norn player characters, and one of my favourite characters. I went feral when I saw the name available. She really
needs an updated customisation, though.
is a pet I recently grabbed from the pound. I am growing quickly attached to him, as a Jerma985 viewer. Also Jerm has an unmatched energy, having kil.led some of my friends on sight. Sadly by owning Jerm I have acquired a 5 billion neopoint debt by proxy and I don't know what to do?? please help. At least a bunch of cool rats seem to follow this shoyru around, which is neat. Including a giant one that seems to command the other rats.Mollymauks
is also a CR reference, but I'm always considering adopting him out. As much as I love Molly in CR, I can't get attached to neopets Molly ;w;
