Sunshine for Apollo - A Get-Well Event - Winners Posted! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Let's spread a little...

As many of you may know, Apollo is off OM duty for a couple weeks for surgery and recovery (though I'm not sure why he didn't just have an apothecary mix up a potion to fix him instead). Apollo puts a lot of effort into running fun and entertaining events for us; this seemed to me like a perfect time for us to give something back.

So, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create something to help distract, amuse or entertain Apollo while he's recuperating. You can create anything you like: a poem, get well card, comic, drawing, lolCat, stop motion video of octopuses waltzing, etc.

The Rules:
1) Post your offering in the ENTRY THREAD.
2) Enter as many times as you like (more stuff to entertain Apollo is good!)
3) Deadline for entries is February 17.
4) Um... I think that's it. Easy, huh?

Prizes:
Well, this really isn't about prizes; it's about doing something nice for Apollo. But since I'm calling it an "event' I guess it needs some prizes. Fortunately, the Y!PP community is generous as always. The following Y!PP artists have each kindly donated a custom avatar as a prize:
Chiichan
Darkfaery
Holography
Kingpriam
Phillite
Tikolana

Judging:
Where there are prizes, there must be judging. Apollo is NOT a judge; he's supposed to be entertained, not do work. Again, prizes aren't really the point here but if you really want to know how the judging will be handled: the primary criteria the judges will be using is "did it make me smile?".

So get to work, everyone. Spread a little sunshine!

Can some of the pirates who know Apollo's tastes share any details of what would please Apollo? I am ashamed to admit I don't know if they have a favorite color, dislike anything etc. I just know I won't be making them a pony. Wrong twin!

I'm not sure whether to make a masculine get-well card for the mighty event-running god or a feminine get-well card for the happy OOO employee. Decisions decisions...

His favorite color is yellow, of course. He likes things that are bright and warm and cheerful and he gets along well with his twin sister.

If you need something to help you get a feel for Apollo's personality, you might try reading his blog.

Just a quick reminder - Deadline for get-well offerings is the end of tomorrow (Tuesday).

And then... Apollo should be returning to us! Yay!

Nonsense people! Reading get well messages is a perfectly acceptable recovery activity. Now if Apollo pops in to say he was running an impromptu event or something... THEN we can start yelling at him :-)

I'm currently suffering from mononucleosis. Where is my get-well event?

I kid, I kid. I hope Apollo is up and running soon. We sure need some sun around here, I'm sick of the cold dark weather of north-Europe.

If I was at all artistic, or funny, I'd enter.

Get well, Apollo.

Edit: after rereading, Apollo's condition trumps mine.

I *really* hope you heal well and feel well as soon as possible.
