Piratey Fairytales II [Winners announced] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Winners announced here


Hi, yes, welcome back, here comes another one. It's a little different this time, though. You see, you don't know the story... yet. Nemesis is going to love it, though. Hi, Nemesis! *waves*.

I will be updating this post daily until the contest goes live, so keep your eyes peeled.
No more updates. Hoppity hop!

Shouty Nemesis and the Developer

Upon a dreary winter's morning
Grouchy Nemesis woke up, yawning
Threw her blankets to the floor;
Set to shouting, more and more.
"BRING MY BREAKFAST! GET ME DRESSED!"
And, "NOW, CLEAN UP THIS FILTHY MESS!"

The other gods, so sick and tiring
Of her bossiness and riling,
Petitioned then to higher powers
Discussed, at length, in godly towers;
Her fate is sealed, Ceph nods his head
A punishment, far worse than death.

And so we skip to the next morning
'midst coffee pots and sleepy yawning
Where devs have, in a single session,
Coded in their dire lesson.
Reboot the servers, hide all signs;
Wait for dear Nem to come online.

"CRONUS!" She shouts, "YOU LITTLE HACK!"
At least... she tried, but voice did lack
You see, the ringers (rather clever)
Have, for now (maybe forever),
Switched Nem's vibrant, awesome shape
For a pink and long-eared pirate's mate.

Thump! Thump! Is now her only sound
Thump! Thump! Upon the frozen ground;
'"Twasn't me, I lack the power!"
Cronus grins, from verdant bower,
"You've brought this all upon yourself!"
"Bottoms up!" he swigs. "Your health!"

Nem, so downcast, staring bleakly;
Galene approaches, rather meekly.
"They went a little far, m'dear,"
'I'll help', and in one floppy ear,
She whispers low the secret meant
To break Ceph's fiendish enchantment.

*pause*

Oh dear.
Writer's block... and this was going so smoothly up until now, too!

Okay. Fine... you lot finish it... but you'll have to stick to a few rules.

Requirements:
  • Make up your own ending. Entries must be your own work.
  • You must use rhyming couplets. Other than that you don't have to stick to a prescribed rhythm, although it will help if it flows well and follows on from the start that I've made.
  • Maximum of 500 words. I will be using THIS word count tool.
  • You may only enter ONCE.
  • Please post your entry in the ENTRY THREAD and make sure to include:
    • Your pirate name and ocean
    • Prize preference, if it is different to the order listed
    • Your entry!


Housekeeping:
  • Any issues/questions/confusion, please post in this thread and I will do my best to clarify things.
  • This event is open to pirates from all production oceans, however, all entries must be in English. If prizes need to be delivered to Jade or Opal, renames will be substituted for something relevant to that ocean.
  • Normal forum rules regarding content, and in-game filter rules apply
  • Judging will be done by a panel of 3, to a set criteria, including relevance to the theme, originality, and how well-written your piece is in general.
  • Entries posted or edited after the deadline will be disqualified
  • Deadline: 11:59 pm game time, Sunday September 11th
  • ENTRY THREAD link


Prizes:
First: Renamed Verdant sloop, ?Bunny Bandit?, Pink rabbit pet, and a Pink (Broomflower) planter of wildflowers.

Second: Verdant sloop and a Pink (Broomflower) planter of wildflowers.

Third: Small dog and a Pink (Broomflower) planter of wildflowers.

In addition, all place winners will receive an inscribed pink ribbon trinket.

Hop to it!

she's gona post it little by little why I don't know:

but here are my theories

1. She got excited and posted this event without finishing planning :D

2. To let us start plotting our own plots (pun intended) as a head start, they could be wrong or dead on giving an advantage

3. She feels like it

GO MCIMP GO!!!! WHEEEEE!

Nemesis is aweso - ARRRGH ARRRGH ARRRRRRGH okay, okay!!!!

*cough*. I've been told AAAAAAAARGH! ...I voluntarily of my own free will deny everything.

Apollo is a fine upstanding gentleman god, who would never sink to bribery or threats to appease any trivial slight. I resent your very implication.

Do your best to whittle it down; entries won't be disqualified outright for being over the word limit, but they will be penalised.

As I read the starter poem, my thoughts went straight to Roald Dahl's fairy tales - same meter, same humor. Nicely done :)

I don't have time to enter this one, but I look forward to reading all the entries!
