Living alongside them peacefully, but not <b>completely</b> side-by-side, are the Faeries, a mystic, bipedal, and always-female race, who also come in a number of varieties, but not as much as Neopets. They are capable of powerful magic (though Neopets, in theory, can exceed their magical prowess, just look at Xandra), but their ruler Queen Fyora makes certain they don't abuse it (for ill or for good). \\

That's why they were made limited-edition when the Vandagyre was released. The people hosting the neopets adoption service decided to make them less available to users because of the recent upsurge of Vandagyre. They are worried that they would be eaten by the Vandagyre, making the species extinct. So they leave the bugs in the breeding sector to create larger numbers, and they let users adopt them on Ruki day, where they can get some training and possibly stand a chance against their predators.

[[WMG: Massive Neopets WMG Theory for fanfic writers.]]

Here's [[{{@/Nightelf37}} my]] world-building on the world of Neopets. It may or may not be true for all of you, but this is what I think of Neopia.

1) Neopets, Faeries, and Users

* Neopets come in at least fifty-four diverse species, ranging from the draconian Scorchio to the porcine Moehog, from the alicorn-like Uni to the griffon-like Eyrie, from the canine Gelert and Lupe to the feline Aisha and Wocky, from the extraterrestrial Grundo to the prehistoric Chomby and Grarrl, and from the rabbit-squirrel hybrid Usul to the maned rhino-like Tonu. They come in two varieties; the regular ones we have, and anthros like Hanso, Gorix, Hannah, and Garin.\\
\\
Living alongside them peacefully, but not <b>completely</b> side-by-side, are the Faeries, a mystic, bipedal, and always-female race, who also come in a number of varieties, but not as much as Neopets. They are capable of powerful magic (though Neopets, in theory, can exceed their magical prowess, just look at Xandra), but their ruler Queen Fyora makes certain they don't abuse it (for ill or for good). \\
\\
While not originating from Neopia itself, there are also the Users, who explore the land and are as much a part of Neopian society as Faeries and Neopets. Via secret binding magical contacts of terms and reasons long forgotten, the Users are permitted "ownership" of at least one Neopet or as many as four (or five for a few privileged ones) and are entitled to care for their Neopets as they explore Neopia. They are also greatly limited in how much they can influence Neopian society by a group of "high" Users called the "TNT Staff", who moderate the other Users and impose penalties on those who violate "the rules", usually by "freezing" them.\\
\\
(Yes. I acknowledge that Users are an important part of life in Neopia.)

2) Faerieland Clouds

* Something bugged me about the clouds. In our world, clouds don't work like that. And even in Neopia, they can break. So here's what I thought. Neopian clouds are infused with magic inherent in the planet, which allows Faeries (and Faerie Neopets and Petpets), certain flying Neopets, and certain flying Petpets to perch on them as if it were solid ground. Kinda like how [[MyLittlePontFriendshipIsMagic MLP]] pegasi can walk on clouds and other races can with a spell.\\
\\
As for Faerieland's clouds, they are also loaded with faerie magic, which allows all Neopets to walk on it and also allows for construction of buildings on them. "But if that were the case, why didn't the buildings fall through when the Faeries were all petrified by Xandra?" you may ask. Well, Faerieland didn't fall in one day. Same principle. You do the logic.

3) Dailies and Wheels

* Why "once every X hours", or "once per day"? How do the operators know when a User is attempting to have another go so soon? That's because the Users, upon "entering" Neopia, are planted with a bug that tells the operators that the User has already done the daily. Why? How? The High Users, of course, who we know as the TNT Staff. But I'll get to that later.

4) The Altador Plot

* How are Users able to enter this great city while at different parts of the Altador Plot? You know, where you're supposed to restore the memories of its citizens regarding the Darkest Faerie? How can one User enter this city with no knowledge of the plot, and meet with and talk to another User who is doing it, or has even CLEARED it? How can two Users at different points visit the same Hall of Heroes, but not see the same lights?\\
\\
Here's how. There's a magical field that encompasses the entire city. Whether it's a Faerie, Jerdana, or someone else who cast it, it doesn't matter. What this barrier does is send Users who haven't cleared the plot to a "time period" where Altador's residents know nothing of its history. For those who have cleared certain parts? Other "time periods", duh. Something in the Users enables them to interact with each other regardless of "time period". What it is I have no idea either.\\
\\
The "present" Altador is the one where Users have cleared the plot. That's how Altador is present during The Faeries Ruin plot, among other things. It's also how Siyana's available for that Games Master Challenge with Princess Lunara.

5) User's Intelligence and Abilities

* Sometimes, Users do stupid things even ''we'' are too sensible for. For example, having to have the User's pet save them all the time from an arrow trap while in the Deserted Tomb of Geraptiku whenever encountered. No matter how many times they go there, Users never seem to learn. Why?\\
\\
Simple. ''WE'' are not the Users. We aren't ''really'' there in Neopia. Instead, through our browsers, we control avatars (that are not humans, therefore still validating what the TNT Staff said about "There are no humans in Neopia.") that follow commands we give them via the site. ''These'' are the Users, not us. They're capable of being in multiple places at once thanks to our browsers' use of multiple tabs. They're also capable of disappearing to an unknown dimension when we "log out" and returning when "logging in". But what are they made of? Are they "golems" operated by magic? Robots stolen from Virtupets Space Station and sent back in time to the beginning to Neopets? That's for you to decide.

6) The Faerie Caves

* Here's one thing that has bugged me about the Faerie Caves. Why can't we just split the party? We can potentially have up to four Neopets (five for Premium Users). What's stopping Users from letting their Neopets go a different way from the User apart from the possible dangers and scary things in the caverns that even the strongest Neopets can't handle without their User?\\
\\
Here are some reasons I figured out. One, the User's being stupid, as stated above, and would not allow their Neopets to split up. Two, a powerful Wraith spawns for every party (read: more than one individual together) detected exploring the cavern minus one (i.e. two parties, one Wraith; three parties, two wraiths; one party, zero Wraiths). Thankfully, this only 'works' when even one (User or Neopet) knows and can confirm there's another party in the cave, which the Users don't because they're stupid (see number 5 above). Even then, there is also powerful Faerie magic that keeps these Wraiths at bay.\\
\\
"But if that's the case, how can multiple Users enter the cave at different times?" you may ask. Well, as I said before, there's a powerful Faerie spell that keeps these Wraiths at bay. This spell, renders "non-existent" to the perspective of any User and their Neopets other Users and ''their'' Neopets also exploring this cave. As a result, anybody who enters the Faerie Caves never see other explorers; only themselves and thus the Wraiths never spawn.\\
\\
As for backtracking, the torches provided in the cave at the cave's entrance is the reason why. The same…thing that prevents Users from entering the cave more than once per day also prevents Neopets from using light-giving items or their own light magic. Faeries are exempt, but they don't have reason to find the treasure anyway, now do they? *shifty eyes*

7) Geraptiku's Tomb

* How are its traps still functional even after it's been long abandoned? Obviously, there're some…individuals who perform trap maintenance. Are they old residents of that abandoned village? Are they maintained by the TNT Staff? No idea. For all we know, somewhere in that tomb is a portal that takes whoever cross it to the Neopets Staff building, but like all baseless rumors there is no proof of that.

8) Rainbow Fountain

* Why is its magic ALWAYS "used up" when you haven't cleared a Fountain Faerie Quest? Well, here's what I think. Via time-travel methods, Users who HAVE cleared one of her quests are taken to a "time period" where the fountain's magic is available. That and Users aren't the only ones dipping their Neopets into the Fountain; non…User-bound Neopets are such frequent users most Users are denied the Fountain's magic via ordinary visits.

9) Almost Abandoned Attic and Igloo Garage Sale

* Yet another thing that's bugged me. Why haven't Mika and Carassa left yet after hosting a Garage Sale for who knows how many years?! Why hasn't that ghost Aisha been able to leave peacefully? The answer: the TNT Staff has a hand in keeping them 'supplied', whether or not they're aware of it. That's why they now also have the basic Neohomes Beta items even though they've been selling their amassed collection for years. Same deal with the Almost Abandoned Attic.\\
\\
For all I know, this may apply for other similar "sales", but not the Snowager; he probably accumulates his hoard during his waking hours.

10) Battledome

* Just how are multiple pets able to fight the same single opponent (e.g. Balthazar, Snowager, Turmaculus, Kauvara) without that opponent needing to rest? My reasoning is that they (your pets) are not ''actually'' fighting the challengers themselves (most of the time). Rather, you face virtual constructs (technology loaned from Virtupets) with basic battle AI and strengths depending on the User's preference. Yes. Nearly every single-player opponent is actually just a "copy" (except the 'grunts' during the war plots and the Obelisk skirmishes). However, that doesn't invalidate that one lucky User is probably fighting the real deal.\\
\\
Also, there are many fanfics that have more than one Neopet entering a fight together. These fights are allowed; you just don't get any neopoints or items for it.


11) Altador Cup Players

Another thing that's bugged me. How are certain players in the teams guys one cup, gals the next? I seriously preferred it when Ilsa Ellits was female; there are rarely any bulky girls around. Now I have to settle with just Loryche, and she's not even an anthro, just a big Chomby.\\
\\
Well. That "question" is already answered in a WMG above.

I think I have a few, but they'll come around later.
