Capping off the Delayed (not) December (not daily) Doodles, here's:
Letters to Santy Cronus!


It might be too late to write a certain jolly fellow, but tha's ok! Our own Santy Cronus is ready (grudgingly) to listen (ignore the snoring) to yer swashbucklin' desires (fine, he has no idea we're doing this) . Posting yer missive in text is not enough! These should be handwritten, appropriately decorated, pirate-fied and passionate, pleas fer rich rewards of any variety in th' next holiday season.

Please include the following in your post:

  • Your pirate's name and ocean
  • Your favorite in-game color, excluding special colors.
  • Post an image of your creation as shown here. Please keep it to a maximum size of 600 x 600 pixels.


Other rules/information

  • Only one entry per player
  • Contest will finish at 8pm 23 January (Slightly extended deadline due to the delayed posting which totally makes sense since these are Delayed Doodles!)
  • All entries must have noted on it somewhere your pirate name, ocean and 'December Doodles 2017'
  • Upload the images to a hosting site such as flickr.com, photobucket.com, imageshack.com.
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline.
  • Please read the rules post before posting.
  • Have fun creating!

Favourite Colour: Black

For those who can't decipher my scrawl:

"Dear Santy Cronus,

Don't tell me the ship has sailed fer wishes, matey - I'm still waiting for delivery of the Calamity Cutter ye owe from last year.

The seas being what they arr, I'll fergive ye. Cuz I'm so fergivin' in fact, I'll ask fer somethin' smaller this year.

I'm after a pony. A nice white mare should do it. Don't mind if she's a bit wild. Don't mind if she's not the right colour either I guess seein' as I'm so accommodatin'.

I believe in ye, Santy Cronus! C'mon now, don't disappoint me.

Yer faithful blaggard,
Emery"

Disqualified! You didn't follow the rules:
Hand-written - Newp
appropriately decorated - Boooring
pirate-fied - Do you even pirate, bro?
passionate - Hah!
rich rewards - I mean, maybe. Peacock can be roasted with a rich sauce I guess. Please send recipe!

Dear Santy Cronus,
Last year I sailed the new waters of Obsidian after leavin' behind much that I knew from me old home back in Meridian. See its fair lonely to be on a vast ocean such as that with naught but yerself, and besides, where's the fun in being a pirate when ain't no one to pillage off!
Anyway, with naught but me boat and some rum I sailed to these new seas and was delighted to find hundreds of pirates vying for each other's booty. Billions of blistering barnacles! T'is a good feeling to be amongst fellow pirates once again.
I did notice that we've gotstalls and ships to boot, but where's all the familiars? A pirate's mate that'll be on yer shoulder through thick an' thin. I heard you can sail into Atlantis and no one's yet to find an Ippolito? Ye gods what is going on?
So, my simple wish for next season, (and not just fer myself I might add), is that we can find more companions to perch upon your shoulder and show the world what a fearsome pirate ye are! (Or at least beg the gods to add blue to the familiar palette.)
Ye will find me out on the deep blue!
Yer faithful pirate,
Arianne.
P.S. I heard Hera is holding pirates for ransom. Apparently, she does not know that there ain't yet peacocks to be found upon these waters. Mebbe you should do summit about it?

Cattrin on Obsidian

Believe it or not I have no paper in my apartment, besides from some important medical records.

But I did have things to make a giant, paper-shaped cookie to write on with chocolate...

After all, Santa needs his cookies, and the best evidence is disposable.

Though it looks like someone got to this before I could take a photo.

Gneiss on Emerald
It really changes according to use but I'll say maroon



I have a bonus page that you don't need to count but it finished up the letter (I made it before I realized you wanted one 600pixel image).

Alpha on Obsidian
Light Blue



Dear Santy Cronus
Th' only request I can reckon o' that would benefit all be t' grant us a portal t' teleport us through a vortex to any ocean arr hearts desire.
Our riches, collections, familiars, fleet 'n loot are all scattered across th' oceans of YPP.
Jus' a wee portal t' connect all oceans be all I wants ...
and maybe a peacock for Hera!
Pixelated love & kisses
Alpha

Yay, thanks! I wasn't sure going unconventional was the right idea, so I'm glad to see people liked it. :D

Congratulations to all the other winners as well- you are better poets than I.
