Reply with Quote

*Note - This is open to all oceans, but prize money is to be collected on any of the green Doubloon oceans!
Post all entires here.

I'm in love with Alliteration, err, that is to say. Lilly loves licking Lollipops lots!

First off, your task:
Create the longest COHERENT sentence of pure alliteration you can! (See above for example)
It needs to make sense, and be basic english (So don't do something like : Lilly lollipops lovely licks lots licking lots lots licking (BAD))

This event ends 48 hours from this post's date! Thats 2 days from now to come up with your sentence and post it

Prizes: Money! You'll win 10k, all for just a sentence :) Sentences I like will all each with a special super secret score! (see what I did there?)

(If you feel the need to ask a question, go ahead.)

ALL SENTENCES MUST BE PG13, ADHERE TO THE RULES OF THE ToS. *
Please, nothing evil, either.
*explicit permission to use pirate names excepted, but they must send a me a PM giving you the go.
One entry per pirate, maximum of 2 edits, any edit after the deadline will DQ your entry.


This contest will be canceled if one or less players participate, and no prizes given out.

Big blond buff Billy baked bitter butter batter, bragging because boring brainy Bertha bought bland butterscotch brownies behind Bob's bakery bazaar, but Billy's bitter batter broke Bertha's braces by Bertha biting Billy's burnt batter.

I hope that made sense, it did in my head.

Pushing the boundaries of english structure is fun! But this'll slide by the english experts, right?
It can't be any worse then my English essay >.>


Note - If your sentence can still flow without an ''and'', I will remove it and the sentence will count, but the And will not count towards the word count.

Ok, does that count as a coherent sentence? If so, i need to go add a few random words to mine here and there...

Ah but, young grasshoppa, is alliteration defined as the mere repetition of a particular letter?

To test the tempestuous trials that trivialise the tired teen trendsetters take two tee total teens tethered together toe to toe, tie them to the tree till they tire totally, tempting them to take to the toolbox that tends to tempt tee total teens to try to take the tools to the twine that tethers them together, two to three times they try, though the twine tends to triumph thanks to the toughness, thus, these trials tire the teen trendsetters to totality

Sorry, with the recent floods in Aus, QLD I was evacuated to a center for a few days. I'm back now and safe - Though worried about some friends.

Will finish up judging and give out prizes.

If anyone sees Romperr online on Viridian, can they PM me? It'd be much appreciated.

Today, two terrible twittering teenagers tried tying two tiny toddlers' toes together to try to treat them to trembling terrors; though, tonight, trying to testify through Twitter, the tutor tested them to throw together talks to transmit through the thirty tours thereafter.

I know it's over - still fun though, right?

Wow, this is the only good thing that happened to me today. Thanks for the boost!
You can find me on Malachite almost anytime. 10p-1am gametime is usually good, but mornings and sometimes afternoons. If I'm not there give my prize to Unca or Teaghan or Tinkkerbelle or Mrbones or Auntyjinxed or Pix. If none of them are there, you are probably on the wrong ocean.

Love, Nio

I won't be able to get on, and haven't for a while, and I'm not sure when I may be back.

I'll put a post up in this thread when I'm able to be back online.

Peace and Love.
Sorry for the huge wait on prizes, too.
