The Case of the Missing Slippers! [Winners posted] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

It was a bright shiny afternoon. Hypnos woke from his nap, stretched, and rubbed his eyes. "Time to get ready for work," he thought to himself with a sigh. Climbing out of bed, he put on his white fuzzy robe and reached for the pink bunny slippers he always tucked into their own little box with love. As he reached into the box his eyes flew open with fear. "NO!!" he screamed. The slippers were gone! A frantic search around the room revealed the slippers were nowhere to be found. His body was racked with sobs as he mourned the loss of his pink furry friends. "I must find them!" he cried. Taking a second look around the room Hypnos found .....

Your job: Solve "The Case of the Missing Slippers"

Your rules:
1. Write a short story - 750 words or less and solve the case.
2. Your story needs to tell us who stole them, how they stole them, and why they stole them. It also needs to be fairly game related.
3. Your story has to continue where the story above left off. (No, that will not count as part of your word limit.)
4. Everyone loves a happy ending and surely Hypnos deserves one, so your story also needs a mushy, tear-filled reunion with the slippers.
5. You have 3 weeks to get your story submitted to the entry thread. Submit it by 9pm game time on the 17th of March. I don't recommend waiting until the last minute! Entries submitted even 10 seconds late will be disqualified! The entry thread will be linked below.
6. I will be using this word counter to verify word count. I will NOT hold hands here, make sure your entry has the proper word count. (I'm not going to tell you if it's over the limit, this is your job.) I will also not tell you if your story does or does not meet the requirements.
7. Be sure to include your pirate name and ocean of play.

**Game time can be established by typing /info on any ocean.

One entry per person only please.

Judging: I will read through each entry to make sure they meet the rules. I will then send a list of all qualifing entries to Hypnos. He will poke through them all to select those he wishes to award prizes to.

Prizes:
Hypnos will be awarding a Hypnos doll to the winner! Runners up will receive their very own pink bunny slippers!

As this one is a writing event judging may take a couple of weeks, please be patient!

It was a bright shiny afternoon. Hypnos woke from his nap, stretched, and rubbed his eyes. "Time to get ready for work," he thought to himself with a sigh. Climbing out of bed, he put on his white fuzzy robe and reached for the pink bunny slippers he always tucked into their own little box with love. As he reached into the box his eyes flew open with fear. "NO!!" he screamed. The slippers were gone! A frantic search around the room revealed the slippers were nowhere to be found. His body was racked with sobs as he mourned the loss of his pink furry friends. "I must find them!" he cried. Taking a second look around the room Hypnos found .....


A chocolate egg! Where did this come from! He unrapped it and ate it. Hypnos went to his bed and grabbed His old Mr snuggles his favourite stuffed toy. Hypnos Huggled His Mr snuggles For he needed him the most at this moment he had lost His Bunny slippys....He hugged his Teddy as hard as he could. Still sobbing Hypnos realized he still had work to attend. One final hug and he set off to work. Out the door and into the busy streets of Lima Island. He briskly had a look at the notice board frantically looking for news of lost Pink bunny slippers...but nothing. He thought about posting a reward Perhaps? Anything for Bunny slippys. But No he couldn't. If word got out about him having a pair of pink bunny slippers he would be ruined. So he dragged himself off to work....




Hypnos worked at a distillery allday making minimum wage. After a long tireing day at work he returned home. As he went to open the door to is bungalow he noticed a note on the door knob....
I know you'r little secret hypnos...I have you'r bunny slippers..Do what i command or i will destroy them! And that was that Someone had snapped him and stolen his bunny slippers But who! This question still remained.....



The whole Night hypnos couldn't get to sleep. It was impossible without his bunny slippys and the more he thought about them the more he cried. And someone knew his secret which made it even worse. He had to get his slippers back he just had to...His sleep depended on it.....After a sleepless night Hypnos was dead tired but he couldn't sleep even so it was saturday. He did not go to work in the weekends. He went to the door and looked for another note and sure enough..there was a note...Meet me at the lima docks at Midnight tonight...Thats if you want to see You're precious Bunny slippers again!.. Who was this mysterious person sending him notes....Why did he steal hypnos slippers that didn't matter! All that mattered was getting those slippers back and that was his only intention.




When the moon was almost centered in the sky Hypnos set off....Briskly through the night. He was like a playfull shadow murking in the darkness....He turned down a street that headed to the docks....As he arrived He saw a figure quite strange...He approached cautiously...As he got closer he could see the figure more cleary and could easily see that it was some sort of Rabbit...."Ah hello?" Hypnos called out...And indeed it was a rabbit and he was carrying the slippers!...."Hypnos....Hypnos...Hypnos Do you have any idea who i am?" "Errr....a talking rabbit" " I am the easter bunny you dilly...Do you want your face to be painted on one of my eggs.." "YES i do" Well then you'r going to have to give up you're slippers or atleast change the name of them"..."What why?" "Well It's so affending we bunnies will not be made into slippers It's so embarrasing everyone thinks bunnies are cute fluffy animals. We bunnies can be tough too. I mean can't I be a piarte too! Can't it be pink hedgehog slippers or something! "It's just not the same" Hypnos replies. Ok I guess i could work something out like....My pink fuzzie wuzzies?" "Thats fine by me!" The easter bunny hands back hypnos his slippers And dissapears. Hypnos falls asleep instantly.




In the morning Hypnos wakes up in the middle of lima docks in his Pink pig pjs and fuzzie wuzzies. He is the centre of attention. And creates a new style for mens fashion Pjs and fuzzie wuzzies. And what a incredibly dashing good looking modle hypnos was....

At this point I cant stress enough the importance of reading the rules.

The entries must contain the following criteria...

*750 words or less (rule #1)
*who stole them, how they stole them, and why they stole them (rule # 2)
*Your story has to continue where the story above (in original post) left off. (rule #3)
*your story also needs a mushy, tear-filled reunion with the slippers (rule #4)

I will NOT hold hands here, make sure your entry has the proper word count. (I'm not going to tell you if it's over the limit, this is your job.) I will also not tell you if your story does or does not meet the requirements. (rule #6)

Mates, there are 11 entries posted so far and only 4 of them are NOT on my disqualify list.

As the edit button still doesn't work past three days, I assume reposting entries (within reason) is allowed?

Oh dear! Now this worries me. Because I'm not sure myself if my story did fully abide those rules. :( I tried to follow the guidelines as closely as possible but it wasn't easy as it limits my creativity.Taco said:

So, would any other kind soul bother reading my story for me and pointing out to me (via PM) which rule I failed to adhere to? I know this is a huge favour to ask, so it's okay if no one is able to. I shall just leave my story as it is until I figure out which requirement I did not meet or sadly, until the competition is over. :( (and yes, I've read it more than a dozen times! so if I did break any rules then I must be simply blind for failing to notice.)

P/s: If anyone can help me check through mine, I'll check through yers for ye! :)

...a greeting card saying 'I have your slippers, and you'll find me, in drop dead gorgeous, you'll see!'
Hypnos felt a tear drop on to his nose, but he wouldn't let this stop him. So Hypnos hopped on a ferry and was whisked away to Aimuari island. In Drop dead gorgeous, there was a little crab with a note on his shell. It read: Hahaha you fell for my plan, now go to quetzal land.
Hypnos sailed on his own ship to quetzal dock and joined the circle where Gabz and Dustine were talking.
"Hey, I've lost my slippers, do you know where they are?"
"Nope, but try going to the cabins" said Gabz.
Hypnos rushed to the cabins, and went into his own to sulk. He looked at the ground sadly, and there, on his feet, were his pink bunny slippers! But they weren't there this morning...So how did they get there?
Hypnos went back to quetzal and talked to Gabz and Dustine.
"So.. you took my slippers and put them back on my feet... why?" asked Hypnos.
"Because I cleaned them for a birthday preasent!" exclaimed Dustine.
Then all of Hypnos's friends came out of the inn and sang happy birthday!

Well, I wouldnt expect more than one to be awarded, but Hypnos will be picking the winners himself and I guess if he so feels moved he will award more than one. -Again, I wouldnt expect more than one as that is all he said he would award.
