View Full Version : Summer 2015 Ciddies- Speech Request Thread

It's Ciddies time & once again, we're looking for volunteers to write speeches for the main event. If you want to participate and write a speech or two, just volunteer here in the thread & I'll update this post & put you down for it.

We'll allow up to two speeches for each award, so if one person has taken an award you really wanted to do, you still can do another speech for it. There's no limit to the number of speeches anyone can write. Audio speeches are allowed, as they have been in the past, if that's your preference. If you write a speech & would like someone else to do the audio, I'm sure that can be worked out as well.

I'd like the speeches by 10pm Central Time US on July 3, so I could have a chance to look them over for any typos, etc. I've listed all the categories & their nominees for your convenience.

Thanks ahead of time for your participation! :D

Sadly, I'm a bit too busy to be writing a speech, but I can read someone's speech if they like. I'd just rather it wasn't one of the ones I'm nominated for.

I have something funny in mind for 29 and 49 but because it's time consuming I can only do one. It will be a video speech. Pick which one please because I am indecisive.

Wasn't sure that was serious, but I'll mark you guys down. Are you doing both together?

Do 49 only if it involves a LOT of innuendo.

If it doesn't, do 29. :up:

Since we're getting so close to the deadline & there are a ton of available categories, I'm not going to allow more than one speech per category any longer.

If anyone has the chance to do a speech, or if you've done one, another, please feel free to claim one. Remember, the deadline is Friday night, 10pm Central Time US. After that I will do any open speeches & can't promise any sort of quality.

[layin' on the guilt]So if you don't want to ruin Award-chan's epic Summer Ciddies, you might want to consider writing a few speeches! :bigsmile:[/layin' on the guilt]

Jinx
07-02-2015, 12:51 AM
I will probably do drunken award on Friday night and drunken awards on Saturday afternoon. :p I'll help you do whatever's left, but I also can't promise quality. xD Have you PM'd people?

Pumpkin
07-02-2015, 01:27 AM
I'll take Best Veteran, Best Artist, and Best Thread

I've sent one out yesterday to a handful of people. They're probably not available.

A moment ago I posted on the FB group page requesting speeches.

GET TO IT, NERDS!

Can't do a vidya speech on a count of too much to do. If I have downtime at the airport and free wi fi I'll whip some written ones.

Bubba
07-02-2015, 11:30 AM
Most Stylish done.

I'll take MLT Have a Summer Romance.

EDIT: That one is done as well.

I'll take MLT Forget to Wear Sunscreen and Get Sunburn

I cleaned up the OP so you can easily see which awards still need speeches. Which is a lot. xD I also didn't know which ones had been completed or what, so I only tagged Bubba's as complete. FEEL FREE TO CORRECT THEM COLONEL.

As an aside, I'll take socks & sandals, local cuisine and best LP

Finished my Ciddie speech. Hope people will enjoy what I did! I would take more, but I am going to be incredibly busy the next few days because of the holiday weekend!

Colonel Angus
07-03-2015, 12:25 AM
Thanks, Shauna, for the fix up!

& Thanks to everyone who's participating! I'm going through the speeches I've received & have taken on a few more myself.

I would like to ask for somebody(ies) to take 36, 38, 39 & 40. Particularly if you're familiar w/ the game(s), it might make for better speeches.

Jinx
07-03-2015, 12:33 AM
I'll take the Kingdom Hearts III speech.

Formalhaut
07-03-2015, 12:48 AM
I REALLY don't do speeches. In fact, I never have.

But Colonel Angus's glowing plea for aid has twisted my arm. What the heck, just throw together a few lines?

I'll take MLT Win a Ciddie for the Very First Time!

Colonel Angus
07-04-2015, 01:18 AM
There's still a few more, if anyone wants any. I'm sending out PMs to those who've taken speeches, but haven't gotten back to me with them.

I want, once again, thank everyone who participated! We have some excellent speeches this time! :thumbsup:

Colonel Angus
07-04-2015, 03:14 AM
Hey guys/gals, when you turn in your speeches, @ this point you can just message them straight to Award-chan (still claim anything here, though, so we can keep track of who has what). I'll send her the finished speeches I've already received, so anything new you guys do can just go to the boss. Thanks again for all your help. This is going to be a great Ciddies!

I'll take Be Rejected at Customs, Have a Cold, Wintery Vacation, Cutest Couple, and Best Custome Title

Since I'm doing a lot, feel free to message me if you'd like to do them instead. I'm trying to be helpful since Ciddies are due tomorrow, and I'll be up all night doing these so I'll gladly hand them over

Jinx

I literally cannot write any more speeches tonight. I'll try to write some more whenever I wake up, if I can. If anyone wants to take any of the ones left, feel free to do so. :sleepy:

Rest? I only have six months to come up with a way to top my Best Avatar speech.

This will require a third of my cunning. No, all of my cunning. :shifty:
