The New Maraquan Gears

Here is the comic that I drew a few days before the start of AC VI. I tried to get it published into the Neopian Times. However, it was always rejected because they had too many good entries. 😦

The best ‘Dear NeoSanta’ letter

December 30, 2010 1 comment

Dear NeoSanta,

Aren’t you cold up there in the North Pole? Take my coat, take my gloves, take my fresh-brewed hot chocolate and gourmet cookies… all I want is an apple-themed present. Or a million bajillion presents. Okay, Santa, so I haven’t been a perfect little girl this year. But let’s put our differences aside for a second and focus on reality. You are a pleasantly plump, genial young man. Even through all your centuries of present-delivering, you radiate youth and happiness. Oh, and may I compliment you on your fashion choices. It always amazes me how a man, even a stunning man like you, could stay warm and look good dressed head to toe in a color like, well, red. You know how to pull off a big nose-after-sneezing-fit, frozen-foot color… and by the way it really brings out your eyes. On the topic of eyes, I brought you a box of chocolate. It, er, improves.. eyesight or something. Yeah. So, can’t a splendiforic man like you see the good in a cherubic child like me?  For christmas I want some apple themed items, now just eat my chocolates, okay? Try them! And as I change this prose to ditty, don’t you think my letter is witty?

Sincerely Staring With Puppy-Dog Eyes (and adding a cherry on top),
