Hundreds of Years into the Future
OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense,who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion, or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
Species: Neopet, green mynci
Hair: Originally black, now bubble-gum pink.
Likes: Eating, cooking, painting, cartwheels, her friends and family, swordfighting, kung fu, acrobatics, swimming, the Lost Desert, climbing trees, and adventuring.
Dislikes: Bullies, jerks, zombies, werelupes, cannibals, spyders, small spaces, AAA (see "jerks"), sitting still, and archery.
Backstory: Though she was orphaned at age two and lived with the Desert Scarabs until she was eight, Dainileai has always had a sunny disposition and a tendency to be overly hyper and "daydreamy", as Jaylie first described it. One day she attempted to steal the backpack of a ten-year-old human new to Neopia, and through a mad chain of events wound up travelling with the girl to Neopia Central to find the girl's sister. Unfortunately, they were waylaid by yet another mad chain of events, this one involving abduction by pirates and a treasure hunt. By the end of it Dainileai and the girl, Jaylie, as well as two other neopets named Rex and Wingreski, had become quite close. Jaylie adopted them, and the Elbuort family was officially formed. Since then Dainileai has lived with the other Elbuorts (the family has grown considerably since that fateful day), first in Neopia Central, then in Meridell. Like the rest of her family, she has a tendency to wind up on random adventures. When she's not, she loves to paint (she's a talented artist), play with her younger siblings, cook, and eat...especially the last one. Since she's constantly honing her acrobatic skills, though, calories no longer apply to her. Her best friend is a fellow former Desert Scarab, a blue mynci named Caspian, her pride and joy is her petpet Minnie, and her favorite family member is June, because June acts like the mother she never had. Her second favorite is Babbles, probably because he's just as hyper as she is.
Species: Neopet, yellow xweetok
Hair: Just her golden mane.
Likes: Helping people, collecting stamps, collecting garden gnomes, her friends and family, any type of chocolate, Jeran, kung fu, running, swimming, making stained glass windows, and her homeland of Meridell.
Dislikes: AAA, any mention of Lord Kass, someone sassing her, someone not doing what they're supposed to when they're supposed to do it, Wingreski's pranks, letting others see her weakness, large crowds, and fire.
Backstory: June was orphaned at the age of ten, when she lost both parents during the second war with Darigan Citadel. For two years she lived with her poor aunt and uncle, who loved her but could scarcely afford to feed her, and when she contracted Neomonia they abandoned her at the Pound. She was in there for almost two months before Jaylie and Dainileai, hoping to adopt a fourth Elbuort, came into the Pound and saw her and adopted her, even though they couldn't afford a cure at that moment. Within a week the family had raised enough money to buy the cure, and after she was healed June decided to stay with them. She is one of the five "original" Elbuorts, though she came a month after the others, because she is the fourth neopet on Jaylie's first account. June is the "mother" of the family, because she's the eldest and also because she looks after everyone else. She's the most practical one of the family, but is also a hopeless romantic; in fact, she has written many a romance in her spare time, and she loves fantasy. She works at Brightvale Glaziers, and brings some of her stained glass windows home with her. June's family can drive her mad at times- especially Wingreski, Babbles, and Gus- but she loves all of them more than life itself. She prefers staying at home over going off on the crazy adventures her siblings seem to crave, but does enjoy traveling. She has an adopted daughter, a Baby xweetok named Mothwings Elbuort.
Species: Neopet, green techo
Likes: collecting bottled sand, potions, inventing, math, reading, friends and family, his neighbor Koph, swimming, and astrology.
Dislikes: AAA, Garin, anyone referring to the time he was painted Faerie, the Pants Devil, cabbage, socializing, and bullies.
Backstory: Rex grew up on Mystery Island. When he was seven he was rescued from some bullies by a mischievous mynci named Wingreski, and the two wound up becoming close friends, despite their different personalities. When he was eight his parents died, and he proceeded to go through three different owners until he finally escaped the Pound with Wingreski. For a couple of days they lived with a "crazy old hobo" korbat named Grandpa Tobi, and Rex worked for Kauvara. Then Wingreski received a mysterious note and started to act strange. Suspicious, Rex followed Wingreski when he went to meet Dainileai and Jaylie at the Money Tree, and all four wound up kidnapped. Rex played a big part in deciphering the map and leading the others to the treasure. When the adventure was over, he and the others formed the Elbuort family. Since then he's lived with his now very large family, going along on some of their adventures. Occasionally he has an adventure by himself, but generally he's happy to be part of a group or just a spectator. He now works in Kayla's potion shop as an assistant. Once a pacifist, he is now a very skilled fighter, and will not hesitate to use physical action to defend himself or someone else. He is the third eldest Elbuort.
