Delayed (not) December (not) Daily Doodles! All I wanted for Xmas...[deadline 11.00am 4 January] (Winners Announced) Reply to this Post

Winners here

All I Wanted for Xmas...

..was a peacock pet. Seriously. I've been asking for one for years and once again I've been ignored. It is time to ask for Doodlers' help. That is right, Nemesis! I'm bringing out the big guns!

Your doodle task is as follows! Write a missive to the YPP art Gods requesting that a peacock pet be added to our list of wonderful critters. Your request should be in the form of a rhyming couplet. There are no word limits for this, but please don't make it too epic - a couple of positive reasons as to why peacocks are a must should be enough!

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


    Other rules/information
  • Only one entry per player
  • Contest will finish at 11.00am 4 January
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline.
  • Please read the rules before posting.
  • Have fun creating!

    Chaos has taken over the land
    Oceans run blue and red on command

    The Dark Seas is where our grey comrades have gone
    Now Purple reigns supreme amongst the blue theron

    Purple demands are few and mostly minor.
    But now Hera's demands are one most dire.

    Peacocks we hear everywhere Ms. Purple goes.
    "I must have them or rotten eggs I will throw!"

    Now even us pirates without pretty noses,
    Do not want rotten eggs to litter our houses

    So please YPP aRRtists, give Hera her desire!
    Make a Peacock pet and save us from her Egg Empire!

    Exotic bird of Flannery,
    Arrive alive to puzzled sea.

    We must implore the gods of art,
    to make once more a color chart.

    And this time for a feathered friend,
    whose looks will surely dividend

    Our splendid throng of living things,
    but this time with expansive wings.

    An Ocean Master doth request,
    Pavo cristatus leave the nest.

    Send forth the fowl, append the flock
    With a magnificent peacock!

    Oh Nemesis, art gods, I come at Hera's behest
    To deliver once more an oft-heard request.

    Your sensible objections, allow me to rebut
    For you may see the answer is not so clear cut.

    Yes, hardened blaggards are more likely to appreciate
    A peacock if trussed and served on a plate.

    But for gentler souls, who favour carousing at inns -
    Or perhaps not inns, being dens of iniquity and sin -

    For collectors and browsers of tailoring racks
    A peacock is sure to stop them in their tracks.

    A peacock pet would be the talk of the isle
    And satisfy those who want to pirate in style.

    As for peacocks not doing so well at sea...
    Let's leave this like we leave the unicorns be.

    But finally let us come to the crux
    Of why peacocks are not merely glorified ducks.

    Bestowing a peacock pet, while ostentatious
    Will silence petitioners most loquacious.

    If this boon be granted, you just might
    Again hear cannon shots in the night.

    Here ye pirates of these oceans vast,
    as another Christmas has come and passed.

    Yet one goddess remains subdued,
    One named Hera doth silently brood.

    Ye see she fails to understand,
    Our lack of birds in this watery land.

    For we have pets of all kinds that are great and small,
    From the portly pig to the Karkinos that doth crawl.

    We have ponies and rabbits and all manners of cats,
    Pandas and gators and even penguins in hats.

    There are common beasts from the sheep and the dog,
    To the mythical unicorn and prickly hedgehog.

    And yet all Hera wishes for is a bird of great elegance,
    One vibrant and beautiful and full of eminence.

    Why then Great Gods, do ye give us instead,
    A plethora of fauna from terrain most widespread?

    Now hear us Great Gods as we ask most kindly,
    For a prismatic bird that parades itself rightly.

    An iridescent creature she can display on the docks,
    Ye gods hear our plea and grant Hera her peacock!

    Elephants, unicorns, tigers and what not?
    YPP has it all, except, the gorgeous peacock!

    This beautiful bird, with her beautiful feathers..
    We are missing this one all together!

    Gods of the sea, hear my prayer,
    Give us a peacock, elegant and rare.

    This pet is what we really miss,
    It is also Hera's deepest wish.

    Bless us, with a gift so beautiful from paradise.
    That will bring us the sun and melt away the ice.

    Gods of the sea, this I humbly ask of you..
    Grant us a peacock, even if it's just a few.

    Please do not knock,
    the gorgeous peacock.

    Sir put down your Glock,
    lest chaos run amok.

    I hope this bird of mine,
    will get its chance to shine.

    With feathers numbering nine,
    I hope we see a lovely YPP design.

    So Arrtists please strut your stuff,
    We've all had enough.

    Release the peacock from its cage,
    or we'll fill with rage.

    Farewell, will be in contact soon,
    you'd better have this released by June!

    Wreathed in splendor,
    in plumage of grandeur

    What a wonderful bird,
    with elegance it shimmered

    Can you not see why,
    you should welcome its many eye?

    Favorite color: Black

    A thousand eyes for Hera spy
    Why she needs them I know not why.

    Into your life she's sure to pry
    But plead her case I must - or die!

    So give her pretty eyes of feathers
    As information data getters.

    I'm sure she has the best intensions
    Our freedoms she would never jettison.

    She only want these pretty pets
    To satisfy her ego - yet...

    Peacocks would certainly look pretty
    To fancify our pirate city!

    So may we have them, pretty please?
    I beg the gods on bended knees.

    Navy

    "Oh, please!" The puzzling pirates wail
    Voices raised, like a peacock's tail

    Common cause bands us together
    Flocked to beg, for noble feathers

    Upon the birds for which we pine
    The oceans' blues and greens would shine

    The measure of our love is muckle
    Peacock pets have swash to buckle

    Please Gods grant Hera her wish
    Every lord and lady desires this

    An emerald-eyed and blue feathery friend
    Calls out to be adopted by pirates with plenty to spend

    On every ocean, the prettiest pet it'll be
    Cruising along your side on the Dark Seas

    Alpha on Obsidian
    Light Blue


    Arrt gods of YPP
    hear the mighty Hera's plea

    A pheasant she wants for xmas
    an array of elaborate feathers, a must

    a crest atop the head, a crown
    any colour, but brown

    The feathery addition to our collector's bin
    its a craze, not a sin

    Make a trade to all ashore
    ten Hera eggs for a peacock, for sure!

    Thank ye for all the entries! It is lovely to see that I'm not alone in my desire for a peacock pet (even though some of the references to them being FOOD were a little disconcerting!) Fingers cross for next year's Xmas wish!

    The winner, gaining themselves candles, a table with runner and lucky feast along with trinket and Hera egg is Emery of Obsidian

    Runners up both getting candles, trinket and Hera Egg are Jazz of Obsidian and Arianne of Obsidian

    All three will also get a rather smart Shiny Sun point to start off their collection.

    Prizes will be delivered shortly.
