What was once thought to be an asset used exclusively in commercials and on the Zazzle merchandise, I found AAA sitting in his chair in profile today in an old banner ad for Daily Dare 2007. This is definitely going on my lookup! (Big thanks to king-roothless for turning it into a .gif for me!)
mac (aroostotle) was one of the first people i remember befriending when the neotag started out. in addition to being a really sweet person, she’s also incredibly inspiring if you ask me! she’s really talented, passionate, and intelligent, but she’s still always so friendly and easy to approach. just an overall awesome neopian! :) - Otarrato
I’m really glad I decided to check Tumblr before bed, this was such an awesome thing to end my day with! I feel so lucky to have met so many wonderful people here over the years who enjoy the same things I do, playing Neopets wouldn’t be nearly as fun without you. Thank you so much!!
I had a dream about Daily Dare last night. Someone had found images that were going to be used for the event this year uploaded early and posted them on the boards. The Camp Wannamakeagame theme was being used again, but this time it was where the event was taking place. There were two brand new characters that had replaced AAA and Abigail, a Mynci and a Tonu. They were both unnamed in the images and they were wearing camp clothes. They both had “Challenge Me” buttons.
There were images for buttons you could click on that said “Talk to AAA” and “Talk to Abigail” but it was clear that they were both absent from camp. I didn’t look at Abigail, but AAA had brand new artwork that depicted him wearing clothes that looked like they were from Shenkuu. I don’t know what the context was, but in my dream I had assumed that he had gone there on vacation. He looked something like this:
I was so angry I woke up.
As soon as I saw that in the editorial I logged into my neopets blog to see what you would have to say on this. I’m not even a huge AAA fan and I’m disappointed by TNT continually shoving him off to the side.
The fact that your first reaction was to see how I felt about it means a lot to me, thank you so much for that. Since we just had Daily Dare and the GMC back to back at the end of last year, I found it highly unlikely that we would see it in March, but of course I was hoping and praying that I was wrong. If this means Daily Dare is permanently being moved to the summer time slot, I’m taking that and the editorial answer from a few weeks ago as a sign that the GMC is in fact canceled permanently. Saying that I’m sad about it would be an understatement, but I’m glad TNT told us about it upfront instead of stringing us along for months like they did last year.
Even though things don’t look so good for AAA, I’m going to try to stay positive. Hopefully this means Daily Dare is being delayed and not canceled this year, and if it is it means they will have more time to prepare for another stunning year. 2013 was one of the best Daily Dares of all time, after all. It also means they might have something new planned for March.
