Hello all !
Can you hear these little charming birds singing under the warm sun ? Can you feel this fresh breeze which makes your hair dance softly in the air ?
Valentine's day is coming soon and for this special day, it seems the world is more beautiful than ever.
Let's express these sweet feelings and write love letters...
In fact ONE love letter each and to a special addressee : a love letter to Jackie
The three best love letter writers will receive a Jackie signed by the staff.
How these three letters will be chosen ?
By three admins : Mac_Leod , Garg CR and I
Your letter will have to force the tears from our eyes.
Several methods to succeed :
an exceptional lyricism
make us laugh
a hammer on our toes could make it maybe
I can't find another method
You have to write your love letter in the thread “Love me true”
This thread (“Love me tender) is where you could write comments.
Don't spam the other thread or I'll be angry and an angry Euzebe for Valentine's day is really nightmarish to see.
One letter each. Between 1500 and 3000 signs
End of this event 15/02/2009 24:00 (GMT +1)
Here some music to inspire you :
0UC_chrizzie - I don't know, a lot of people failed to meet the requirements of the contest, so it could be down to only a handful of people. Not only do are a lot of the entries under 1500 characters, but a lot of the better entries lack any humor.
I have confidence in mine, and I thought dr_absinthe had one of the better entries, even though it's short of 1500 characters. But I can't find anymore that I really like.
Well... I would say I did horrible. Certainly nothing of my best works, but eh - romance isn't in my genre. I'd rather make a short story.
I guess I went completely idiotic at the end of my first post; much more like an immature buffoon, really, but still. If I didn't win, I wouldn't be surprised. However, I agree with you ShamWow. These lacked humor. Most (including mine, sadly) described physical features, etc. But still - they have to choose someone, right? ... and I have no entry I'm in favor of. Not even mine.
Haha Itamae i agree romance is not my strong suit either......as you can tell from my almost stalkerish letter from zlatar....i am also not in favor of any of these letters, i believe we all have pretty much equal chance here guys and girls lets just see who the judges like best
@itame - Well, I think the biggest problem was that the criteria for the entries - lyricism and humor - were in this thread, but not the other. I think some people just jumped into the "true" thread and posted, without reading Euzebe's expectations. Also, the character limit (1500-3000) was in the "true" thread, but not this one.
Yours was better than a lot of the posts, but it's also under 1500 characters.
I'm glad I have a decent shot at winning this, though. I was upset at missing the fanscript contest, and the Scarlett Cr that went to the winner, but this signed Jackie should be worth a lot more than Scarlett.
I can't wait for the results though I can understand why it's taking a while to choose. They need time to read and confer amongst themselves over the ones they think are the best. I'm also curious to see how strict they're going to be on the 1500+ character rule. I liked my entry, but then again I knew what I was referencing to near the end of my entry to find it humorous. Good luck to all people who had an entry though.
