Is Rainbow a Colour? [Results Posted]

Inspired by the delightful Adrielle, I would really like to know... is rainbow, in fact, a colour?

Your task it to argue whether rainbow is a colour or not, using twisted, inaccurate or misrepresented scientific facts and cleverly written logic to justify your argument.

Requirements:
*This event is only open to pirates on the Viridian ocean. Pirates from other oceans may enter, but prizes will only be available on Viridian.
*Include your Viridian pirate name in your entry post, and specify whether you want the male or the female garments. If you don't say, I might guess, and that could be dangerous.
*All work must be your own.
*Word limit: 300 words. Less is just fine, though.
*You may only enter once. No sneaky trying out both arguments, either, pick a side!
*Please post your entry to the Entry thread .
*Deadline: Midnight game time, Sunday May 15th.

Prizes:
There will be one prize each for the best-judged entry in each category. Note that you must choose either the male OR the female outfit with your entry post, you don't get both! I am simply providing a choice because the arr!tists haven't invented cross-dressing. Yet.

For the affirmative (Yes, Rainbow is a colour):
Female outfit:Laurel hat, Corset, Gown and fancy boots, in a Rainbow riot of colours.
OR
Male outfit: Buccaneer hat, Jerkin, Loose pants with sash, Fancy boots, in a Rainbow riot of colours.

For the negative (No, Rainbow is not a colour):
Female outfit: Laurel hat, Bodice, Gown and fancy boots, the colours of which I will decide based on your entry.
OR
Male outfit: Buccaneer hat, Jerkin, Loose pants with sash, Fancy boots, the colours of which I will decide based on your entry.
oh, and Adrielle will probably want to mute you. She won't, though. She's too nice.

Adrielle's pick:
Adrielle also gets to pick her favourite. She has an Adrielle eggy up for grabs for the person who pleases her the most.

All prize-winners will also receive a commemorative palace-shop-seasonal-type-trinket thingy which I will decide based upon your entry. It is entirely possible that I will also throw trinkets at other entries that amaze, astound, surprise me or make me laugh.

Any questions, comments or issues, please post in this thread.

Re: Is Rainbow a Colour? [Writing Event. Deadline May 15]

It's Juggernog from the Malachite. Just figured I'd post anyway.

Rainbow, in my opinion, is a color. Most people think that it's combination of colors, but in fact, most colors are combinations of multiple colors. I mean, back in Kindergarten, you sang about how "If you mix blue and yellow, it makes green." Rainbow is no different, except the colors mixed are more prominent. Another example is grey. You don't say "A very white-ish black." Now, mainly it's because you want to save time, but rainbow is the same. You see a rainbow, not a combination of prominent red-orange-yellow-green-blue-indigo-and-violet. The colors are blended, maybe not evenly, but blended nonetheless, just like every other color in our society. Take that, rainbow haters.

( I have no chance of winning this prize. I just wanna sound smart. XD )

Nope rainbow is not its own color. Rainbow is the term used to describes the mixture of colors that form and make a rainbow :p.

Re: Is Rainbow a Colour? [In Judging]

Wheee! Results are in. Don't be too disappointed, there were some quality entries that aren't mentioned, judging was very tight up the top end.

In first place, for the affirmative, is Martobain. Blinding science there, man. I'm convinced. I have a gradually shaded selection of the aforementioned clothing a-waiting for you, and your very own miniature leprechaun yellow Mr Bunny toy trinket.

In first place, for the negative, is Ithilmar . Very clever idea! You should find your outfit is very well-camouflaged in grey and green, and a spring bouquet with a cleverly hidden tagging device card trinket for tagging sneaky rainbows with.

Oh-so-closer runners up, Imasterl, Topsail and Iong will also get their very own leprechaun spring trinket Mr bunny toy in lime, red or purple (I have one each, first to be successfully stalked/hunt me down gets to pick)

Also, for spreading the love, McArghh gets a baby bean to love and grow; and for wowing me with complete and utter confusion, Kork and Wayfarer each get a ladybug spring trinket.

Thanks everyone, and I hope you had fun! Adrielle will post her choice once she's made it ;)

It varies, frequently on Viridian as Mcimp in the very wee hours of the piratey morning, but i'll pop in for a look-see whenever I have a moment, just to stalk people :)

Re: Is Rainbow a Colour? [In Judging]

Adrielle's Favorite - Winner!

It was very hard to pick just one favorite! After much deliberation, I would like to award an Adrielle's prize-winning egg to Marishi! I like the idea of rainbow being emotion (although, I still say it is a color too!)

I will try to find you in-game ASAP to deliver your eggy!
