Oh look at that Dakoda go :D!

Jiro
06-16-2012, 01:39 PM
40 through 43 will be finished off tomorrow morning. Leg work has already been done. Please make a note of Psychotic's contribution to the glorious #43 by adding his name, first if necessary.

Bubba
06-16-2012, 03:06 PM
I'll take 28, 36 and 44 for now

EDIT: And 19.

Jiro

I am really excited to see your speeches man.

I'll start with 2,8,11 and 27.

Freya
06-17-2012, 05:12 AM
Updated the list! You cool cats get to work! I'll pick up the left overs which i'm sure there will be a lot so feel free to claim any you want!

Jiro
06-17-2012, 05:15 AM
I'll take number 6 as well.

Jiro
06-17-2012, 11:29 AM
32 and 50 please.

Freya
06-17-2012, 11:34 AM
Dakoda you just keep doing them all don't you xD

Jiro
06-17-2012, 11:36 AM
Not true. I tricked Psychotic into writing one for me :)

Hollycat
06-17-2012, 05:06 PM
48 and 49 please

Bubba
06-17-2012, 07:20 PM
I am really excited to see your speeches man.

Looking forward to yours too! I'm sure they'll be at your usual awesome standard.

Sephex
06-17-2012, 08:36 PM
**** it. Just have Jiro do the whole damn thing! :)

Sylvie
06-17-2012, 09:04 PM
I'm not sure if I should be trusted to do this.

Bubba
06-17-2012, 09:18 PM
Fill your boots, Sylvie!

Sylvie
06-17-2012, 09:21 PM
Give me #37.

I'm only wearing one very small boot.

Freya
06-17-2012, 09:26 PM
If your speech is vulgar/whatever I do read them before hand so I can refuse xD So don't worry sylvie, if yours is o.O I'll just send it back to be fixed lol

Sylvie
06-17-2012, 09:27 PM
I'm hoping I don't have to write about myself. Not because I dislike writing about myself, but you know, I'd rather have someone write about me.

Ace Protorney
06-17-2012, 09:44 PM
This is why it's suggested that we write speeches for awards that we're not up for. I might write another speech after I'm done with my next one, so put me up for 38 and 39 as possible speeches. Not guaranteed, but I put me up for them. Others can also write them if I don't somehow get to them.

Sylvie
06-17-2012, 09:54 PM
Can someone choose #37 and do it if I end up winning it? Jiro, I know you're a good boy.

Del Murder
06-17-2012, 09:54 PM
Put me down for Win a Ciddie for the Very Last Time.

Freya
06-17-2012, 10:00 PM
Yeah, we use to be a bit more fidgety about that but since we have less activity with the ciddies, I just want them done!

Ace Protorney
06-18-2012, 12:08 AM
Yay, my speeches are done! I think I can write some more if needed!

Sylvie
06-18-2012, 12:13 AM
Excuse my transparency here but this is the first time I have participated in such a thing;

How do we complete a speech before we know who even won?

Ace Protorney
06-18-2012, 12:19 AM
Basically, it's just introduction of the Ciddie's nominees, and/or explaining why each nominee deserves to win. Each speech are done differently so you can write your speech however you like.

Here's an example of a speech done by Jiro during last year's End-of-Year Ciddies. (http://home.eyesonff.com/eoff-archived-awards/140095-now-main-course-december-2011-ciddies-revelations-all-done-17.html#post3045708)

Sylvie
06-18-2012, 12:35 AM
Ah, okay. I misunderstood it then. I can do that.

Jiro
06-18-2012, 03:59 AM
I was actually going to ask you to write some speeches anyway, Sylvie. I'm glad you came to the decision yourself, I'm sure you'll entertain us with a very different approach.

EDIT: Don't forget to green light #40, I sent that in already!

Sylvie
06-18-2012, 04:10 AM
Give me #12.

Jiro
06-18-2012, 04:50 AM
#35 will be completed post haste.

Raistlin
06-18-2012, 04:55 AM
I'll take Best Admin, Best GF Poster, and Most Missed.

Freya
06-18-2012, 05:16 AM
Sure thing Wezlton.

Jiro
06-18-2012, 12:21 PM
So eleven speeches are in with my Sephex collaboration in the works. I don't recall what the record for most speeches in a Ciddies was, but I believe Tavrobel still holds the record. 17 seems to be a familiar number. I might try and shoot for the top.

blackmage_nuke
06-18-2012, 12:56 PM
I had a hilarious speech planned a month ago and now Im kicking myself for not writing it down

Jiro
06-18-2012, 01:01 PM
Please, please remember it. Or just write a different one and make it as equally funny. I KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS. THIS IS THE REASON YOU ALWAYS WIN MOST UNDERRATED. YOU HAVE UNTAPPED POTENTIAL WAITING TO BE UNLEASHED.

blackmage_nuke
06-18-2012, 01:06 PM
I'll try best female but if anyone in particularl wanted to claim it feel free to take it from me

Freya
06-18-2012, 01:09 PM
I believe in you! You can do it!

Jiro
06-18-2012, 01:13 PM
Believe in me who believes in Freya who believes in you!

Rantz
06-18-2012, 02:26 PM
You're gonna let blackmage_nuke write the Best Female speech!? Do we even know if he can write? Does anybody even know who that guy is???

Do you think the above is unfair or undeserved? Please vote blackmage_nuke for Most Underrated Member '12!

When are the awards being presented? I may have time to write a last-minute speech or two on Friday/Saturday unless Jiro does them all before me!

Freya
06-18-2012, 07:37 PM
Friday is when the Ciddies reveal is supposed to happen!

Shiny
06-19-2012, 12:42 AM
#9 and #33 plz

Jiro
06-19-2012, 05:06 AM
So apparently I once wrote 23 speeches. Gotta put it a bit more effort if I wanna do half of it.

Jiro
06-19-2012, 05:31 AM
#25 is currently being written by #eoff incl. the likes of Bubbaforever, foa, Jiro, Sephex with cameos from Jentleness and Happy Noodle Boy.

Ace Protorney
06-19-2012, 05:39 AM
Put me down for Best Artist as well. I have a speech in the work being made for that.

Freya
06-19-2012, 05:41 AM
You'll have to fight dakoda, he wrote one for that and I was just in the process of editing it. HE NEEDS TO CLAIM THINGS BEFORE HE DOES THEM. Since he already has a bajillion I will accept yours over his heh if you send it in.

Freya
06-19-2012, 05:59 AM
Actually i'll just use them both but still. FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT.

Jiro
06-19-2012, 06:07 AM
7 and 17 please.

Del Murder
06-19-2012, 08:56 PM
Do we send completed speeches to Freya or Award Bot?

Freya
06-19-2012, 09:56 PM
Either one. You can send them to me and I'll forward them to award bot or you can eliminate the middle man and just send them to award bot. I haven't sent award bot any of them yet cause I was going to send them in bulk heh.

Jiro
06-20-2012, 03:35 PM
I...I think I'm done. I can't write any more :exdee: I'll finish off Best Writer but I'm all outta steam folks :jiro:

Sylvie
06-20-2012, 03:36 PM
I'll be writing #12 today.

Jiro
06-20-2012, 05:06 PM
Just in case anyone gets super enthused before Freya updates the OP, I have completed 23 and 26 already. Apologies if you really wanted them. 17 is being worked on, and I will submit 25 once it is finished being compiled.

Del Murder
06-20-2012, 09:43 PM
Speech in.

Bubba
06-21-2012, 12:28 AM
Three done and one to go!

My and Dak are currently combining for another as well

Hollycat
06-21-2012, 12:31 AM
I should have mine 2 done pretty soon. So far I've written and trashed both of them twice.

Pike
06-21-2012, 03:58 AM
If anything is left I'll take them. Just let me know!

Jiro
06-21-2012, 04:49 AM
PIKE PLEASE WRITE BEST NEWSWRITER.

Pike
06-21-2012, 04:56 AM
PIKE PLEASE WRITE BEST NEWSWRITER.

Hollycat

Bubba

I will have sent in MLT to become a Cid's Knight within the next few hours.

Hollycat
06-21-2012, 07:03 PM
Is no one doing best post, best blogger or best avatar?

Pike
06-21-2012, 09:29 PM
Best Newswriter speech has been submitted.

Bubba
06-21-2012, 11:15 PM
36 done! Right, I'm spent... I don't know how Jiro does it.

Jinx
06-21-2012, 11:16 PM

Raistlin
06-21-2012, 11:22 PM
I'll do my speeches tonight. Just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten.

Freya
06-21-2012, 11:25 PM
Good because I was going to mail you a porcupine if you had.

Hollycat
06-21-2012, 11:27 PM
I think the second one I did was good, but I'm still twitchy about the first one

Rantz
06-21-2012, 11:34 PM
I shall do Best Avatar posthaste.

Shiny
06-22-2012, 12:13 AM
Sent in Biggiest FF Fangirl. Best Veteran incoming.

Raistlin
06-22-2012, 04:22 AM
I sent in all three of my speeches to Award Bot.

Freya
06-22-2012, 04:38 AM
I'm assuming Shiny did as well! I'll mark you guys off then.

Freya
06-22-2012, 05:46 AM
Just need best post and best blogger! Otherwise just waiting on people to send them!

Ace Protorney
06-22-2012, 06:09 AM
I've been wanting to write Best Post, but I'm not sure how I want to execute it. I guess since it's still available and no one seems to want it, let me have at it!

Sylvie
06-22-2012, 07:32 AM
If "balloon" were nominated for best blogger I'd write it but :bou::bou::bou::bou::bou: that I don't know how to write that shit

Ace Protorney
06-22-2012, 09:28 AM
I'm finished! Finally. I'm spent.

Shiny
06-22-2012, 02:36 PM
Best Veteran in. Sappiest speech I've written yet. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

Bubba
06-22-2012, 03:01 PM
Is FoA struggling to get hers in? Have they been covered?

Jiro
06-22-2012, 03:35 PM
We've got time. Those speeches don't need to be ready until they're being presented, so hold fast and have faith :)

Loony BoB
06-22-2012, 05:39 PM
I have to say I am extremely impressed with how well the speeches are going this time around. Seriously, this kind of stuff makes the Ciddies!

Sephex
06-22-2012, 05:57 PM
I'm pretty pumped up to see how people react to something I helped Jiro work on for this.

Hollycat
06-22-2012, 06:00 PM
I'm really excited to hear these. We are starting today no?

Queen Award, First of Her Name
06-22-2012, 06:20 PM
Ciddies start in an hour and a half. Be sure to get any last-minute speeches in by then!

Del Murder
06-22-2012, 06:36 PM
An hour and a half? Whelp, there goes my work day then.

Ace Protorney
06-22-2012, 06:52 PM
This is the most speeches I've done for the Ciddies since we've had a three-headed host!

Jiro
06-23-2012, 05:18 AM
Wrote or collaborated in exactly 25 speeches, exactly half. I didn't think I would get there, but by golly gosh I did. That's my curtain call then. No more speeches from Jiro!

Pike
06-23-2012, 05:45 AM
JIRO you had better be back for some speeches

And the rest of you had better be back for some too

My goal is ten for next time! :bigsmile:

Jiro
06-23-2012, 06:03 AM
My goal is a maximum of five!

Freya
06-23-2012, 08:03 AM

Loony BoB
06-24-2012, 12:47 AM
Seriously good speeches, everyone. When you consider the spread of quality speeches throghout the entire event, I'd say they added up to the best speech set in Ciddies history. :)
