Okay, so I thought this might be sort of fun. Basically, I'm going to hold a small contest. The subject will be Halloween and the only rule is to create something that pays tribute to, or embodies Halloween. It can be literature, music, drawings, whatever. Create whatever the hell you want. I don't care. Just make sure it's Halloween related. A few days before Halloween I'll reveal all of the submissions and the community can vote on their favorite. On October 31st the top 3 winners will be announced.

When you've finished your creation, PM me and we'll work from there.

The deadline to submit your stuff will be a few days before Halloween, but I'm not sure of the exact date yet. I'll get back to you guys.

Also, right now I am planning on participating in this, so I'm going to need someone to count the votes for me so I don't cheat. PM me if you want that responsibility (Why anyone would volunteer for this is beyond me, but whatever.)

I'm loving this competition, nik. Great idea. I've been working on my submission for about 2 hours and I can't look at it without lawling with love. :jess:

I like this.

I will enter something, most likely a drawing, into this contest of yours.

However, I have one question:
Some creative works, be they musical scores, writings, drawings, etc. have come with an accompanying creative work. I was curious if it would be agains the rules to submit something that has an accompanying work, such as a story that has a paired illustration of one of its scenes?

I most likely will not do this as I am terribly slow and can only really possibly achieve one piece of work, but others may in fact want to do this.

Actually, I don't see why two or more members can't work as a team in creating something. That's cool too.

Is anybody other than Rye actually going to turn in/working on a submission?

I really like this idea and I think it'd be cool to realize it, but I need some sort of participation on your behalf. :p

Rye
10-18-2006, 10:43 PM
If no one else participates, a cascade of tears will pour from New York and flood a good portion of the United States. ;__;

---------------------

HALLOWEEN MAGIC

A bald-headed ghost
Drank some witches' brew
And on top of his head
A strange thing grew.

It was pointed and tall
And black as a bat
With stringy long hair
Where his head was flat.

The sad little ghost
Didn't want any hair
Or a black pointed hat
So he said, "Witch beware!"
Then he chanted some words
With a spell-casting switch
And gave Halloween Night
A bald-headed witch!!

Literature



Pumpkins growing in fields of grey.
While one three horned devils on hearts they prey. Angels of Death their victims they meet.
While bat winged humans their food they greet.
An oath to halloween the day of kings.
The sweet soft call of the children rings.
Trick or Treat is what they'll say.
So give'em some candy not glass or hay.




Old Hallow Eve

As the day goes by, children giggle,
There eyes light up like the jack o latern
To see the smile they have every year, tis a treat
without the trick.

As the dawn grows near, the sky turns dark,
the tricks soon appear, masks, glow in the dark knives, fake blood.
You hear a knock, then a "Trick or treat" as you answer.

Fake blood drips down your door, you hear the sounds of screams, near and far, money, candy or something more?

Old Hallows Eve grows to a end, children count the money they earned, and eating. Parents grow tired.
As the last childs head touches the Pillow, he falls asleep, and no more Old Hallow Eve.

Alright then. If voting is what you guys want then voting is what you guys will have. Don't start voting yet though. I want to give Faris an ample heads up so she isn't bombarded with this unexpectedly.

Also, when you vote, I encourage all of you to try to guess whose submission is whose.

Faris
11-02-2006, 01:32 AM
Start it whenever you want. Just let me know when you want me to post the results. Oh, are they voting for each category, or overall?

nik0tine
11-02-2006, 02:06 AM
I'm not certain about the category thing. It sounds like a good idea. Do you think we should implement it or not?

Faris
11-02-2006, 02:44 AM
It would give more than one person some glory. :p But we could fuse the idea and have a winner for each category and an overall winner? But I'll wait for an opinion for this.

Also, when you vote, I encourage all of you to try to guess whose submission is whose.

If you want, you can send me the names and I can determine who guesses the most correctly.

It really doesn't matter to me how they vote, just so long as it's sent in a way that I can understand. I can give an example once we figure out how we want to do this.

Faris
11-02-2006, 04:37 AM
Alrighty folks, here is the voting system! Before you vote, please do take a look at every submission (I'm providing links to each below)

There will be one vote for each category, one vote for your overall favorite entry, and then you make your guesses.

So, here is an example set-up for the voting:
