December (not daily) Doodle: Peter Panda's Price - arrRansom Note! [deadline 11.00am 8 December] Winners Announced! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote


Peter Panda's Price - arrRansom Note!

Winners are here

Time for another December (not-daily) Doodle! And this time, I'm dedicating it to Cronus - my Xmas gift to him courtesy of you lovely doodlers! (I wish all Xmas shopping was this easy!)

Your doodle task is as follows!

I liBEARated* Peter Panda from Cronus some months ago, and the pesky thing is eating me out of house and home. It is time to return him, but being quite a materialistic Goddess I need some reward for my pains. Please write a short ransom note that I can present to Cronus - no more than 100 words long (yes, I will be counting). You can demand anything for the safe return of Cronus' prized panda on my behalf. (PG13 rules please!).


Please include the following in your post:
  • Your pirate's name and ocean
  • Your favorite in-game color, excluding special colors.
  • Word count

    Other rules/information
  • Only one entry per player
  • I'll be using this word counter to check entries: Word Counter
  • Contest will finish at 11.00am December 8th
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline.
  • This is a writing contest - you may pretty your note up, but art won't be taken into account when judging.
  • Please read the rules post before posting.
  • Have fun creating!

    *that pun never gets old...

    What better way to ransom than by Limerick?


    Dear Cronus,

    I kidnapped your panda named Peter,
    But I don't make a great panda feeder;
    So if you want him back,
    Send twelve cats to my shack,
    'Cuz I use fluffy pets as a heater.

    Love, Hera.

    Cronus:
    If you want to see your panda alive again, you must deliver twelve purple octos and a peacock in a pear tree, by the twelfth day of Christmas. Count yourself lucky that I didn't ask for the full song.

    Cronus,

    If you ever want to see your precious Peter Panda again, you better provide me with the following!
    Gold, so much gold it'll make Gretchen Goldfang jealous.

    My house, covered in PURPLE Christmas decorations, including tree, purple Christmas lights and Frosty the Snowman.

    Dearest Cronus,

    We have your panda. We thought at first it would be fun to own but now we realize it's stupid and annoying and we can no longer bear it.

    (The word "pandering" must have been coined after him because that's certainly what he's doing to everything in the hold.)

    Please deliver onto us a better bear. Preferably purple. Smelling of lilacs. Maybe even stuffed after this whole live bear nonsense.

    Or else you'll know what's black and white and red all over.

    Us

    There once was Panda name Peter;
    Who turned out to be a big eater;
    Now my bamboo's all gone,
    And he's eyeing the lawn....
    He's all yours for a fancy two-seater.

    Papa,

    Peter Panda picked a plentitude of pecks of pretty plants, presumably to please his palate. Pesky Peter peeves your precious princess. Prevent painful punishment to piggish panda by producing proper payment to purchase Peter's presence.

    Procure peacocks, pearls (possibly purple), precious pieces of pottery, perhaps some papaya... And pudding. Pounds of pudding. (Persimmon is prohibited.)

    Oooh, what excellent suggestions! Cronus has left his phone off the hook now as I kept ringing him up to read them out to him - for some reason he wasn't amused. Such a Sad Panda...

    The winners, getting themselves festive stockings (suitable to stash loot in, at a pinch), a winter ornament (purple and the colour they picked) and a Sun Point, so shiny you shouldn't look at it without sunglasses are as follows:

    Cattrin of Cerulean and Budclare of Meridian

    Congratulations! Prizes will be delivered soon!
