Voting is Closed, this year's contest is now open!

For a few reasons, I'm creatin this page for a little more flexibility with entries.

Rules:

1. Don't steal artwork. Come on, what's the fun of entering without the pride of it bein yours?

2. Follow the theme set down by: [wicked fae mage]. The theme is forbidden love.

3. As for content: I am allowin a blurrin line for the pornographic rule that's normally set since love tends ta lead ta sex anyhow. O.O *ahem* As for violence, I'll blur the line too.

4. Mediums: Drawins, photos, photo manips, paintin...whatever your creative mind allows. Perhaps I'll make sub-wikis for the different mediums?

5. Three entries per person. I may wanna change that, but for now that seems fine *shrugs*

6. No deadline set yet. I'll fill it in when there is n.n

7. The pics do not have ta be scanned, just upload them ta elftown so the links aren't broken and so everybody can see yer work ^^

8. Entries here like this:

  0. "Title"
  username with the [] thingies
  Entry location <img300: if its an image



A brief history lesson:

The original *ST.* Valentine... was a roman priest... roman law at the time forbid men/boys in the army/going to war from marriage... so they would be committed to their unit/commander/ceaser... and not to a woman and family at home... also so woman wouldnt be left unsupported if their 'man' died....

the Priest Valentine... rebelled and broke this law.. secretly marring couples

he was arrested and thrown in prison... supposedly to be eaten by lions... but historians are coming up with more and more facts to disprove the whole sacrifices to lions myth... so that part is maybe debatable..

anyways... the idea of why we send/give flowers is b/c woman would give flowers to this priest while he was in prison to show their thanks for his sacrifice... they wrote their thanks on the underside of the roses leaves...

as for chocolate... it needs no excuse! its just that good!!!

(thank you [moira hawthorne] for one reason that V-day is taken out of context of it's truer more noble meaning)

actually I gave that info to disprove the modern assumtion that Valentine day is a made up holiday by Hallmart; that there isnt any reason to have a day to be thankful for having the ones we love; that we shouldnt have a day to celebrate love conquering all.

3. "Forbidden Love" [LynnAnneBrown]

So what my muse
Should I tell them
Of our Forbidden Love
I tell them
All the stories
That you share with me
I like when I get to wear your voice
And you let me pick the dress I want to wear
And my eyes flicker across the page
In search of beauty there
And I make of you my God
Because
I trust
The way you take me
And these mortals
Would condemn me
For making you
Conjuring
With my magic
Your presence here
And I like you best
When you come here
Dressed as Goddess
I like your voice
You tell me I'm immortal
Then ask me
What I plan to do about it

Ah they think I've gone crazy now
Because I obey the muse
That I created
in the belief
That she created me

Why do I flirt
With Madness
Because of all my lovers
She's the best

Because
She sings for love
And not the rest




4. 'Anne' [Madhalf Heatlump]

Captured smiles and glances / Spilled along the way
How my heart it dances / With every pretty word you say
I've parted ways with reason / Won't let it cloud my eyes
Just set my heart for treason / And my mind to alibis

Confidantes stand in my way
But I can't hear a word they say

Stolen hugs and kisses / To drag my dreams to life
Too many close near misses / Too many bittersweet goodbyes

All These lies stand in my way
I can't recall a thing I've said

I've cut these shackles and ties that bind
I've changed beliefs that rule mans mind
To the least deserving I've been most unkind
I'd do anything for Anne I find

Your pretty act for me / That others see right through
What is it I Don't see? / Oh tell me what's a king to do?
I've parted ways with reason / Won't let it cloud my eyes
Just set my heart for treason / And my mind to alibis

All These lies stand in my way
I can't recall a thing I've said
Confidantes stand in my way
But I can't hear a word they say

Oh Anne, What's a king to do?
Anne, I'm so in love with you
©2008 Robert Cofell

The song is inspired by Henry VIII's love for Anne Boleyn

6. 'If Only...' [moira hawthorne] - WIP
<img300*0:stuff/forbidden%20Val%20wip2.png>
my original inspiration for the theme Forbidden Love - photo/real world touching Aodh/art world
I love the idea of real world meets painted world - we exist in two separate mediums & he is my alter ego

8."Ying Yang Devil Angel" [wicked fae mage]-WIP (and just for show ^^ since I own this contest)
<img300*0:stuff/yingyangdevilangel.jpg>
An elf and a human...a devil and an angel =3 (Since "Yin" is called "Ying" and misunderstood as evil I figured the misnomer is perfect for the little wicked elf ^.^)



9. 'Drow Love' [moira hawthorne] - WIP
<img300*0:stuff/5th%20wip%20M%26A.jpg>
my RP character Athela and his lover Melc who belongs to [melcinitan]; its the moment before lips met... they were discussing secrets and why they are kept... and Melc asks Athela why he wears a dress and it leads to Athela dropping it off.. as in baring all his secrets to his new lover... its a very touching scene... for drow love... but they are both very unusual drows.
and why its forbidden:
1) drow arent allowed love... women possess males... but these two escaped to live upon the surface
2) the RP died for me.. so their love was cancelled aswell




10. 'Oh look.. A butterfly' [0-Aki]
<img300*0:http://elftown.com/img/drawing/93767_1240601068.jpg>
This is my character Alunis (albino boy on the left)
And my friend Ali's character Chiila (girl on the right)
They're best friends, and have been for a very long time, and because of this they would never risk their friendship for getting together, so all they can do is dream.
This might not look as good tiny, so click it for full view.

2009-02-12 [moira hawthorne]: is that forbidden? or just annoying?

2009-02-12 [Lordterrex]: .... well.. I wasn't thinking for this competition.. but it is forbidden to jack off when you have a class full os students.... I mean... that is really forbidden.

2009-02-12 [moira hawthorne]: not if it was a very progressive sex ed class! lol

2009-02-12 [Araglas]: Hey!!! I can be innocent if I want to be!!!
Wow...never had a sex ed class like that!

2009-02-12 [moira hawthorne]: me niether.... but it would be awesome1 lol

2009-02-12 [Araglas]: lol it would!

2009-02-13 [Artsy]: Sorry if my entry offends. ^^ I tried to make it like.. not just another 'oh look, a priest loving a choir boy, how wrong, gross...' etc... I wanted you to hear, just by looking at it, the boy saying 'It isn't fair!' and the priest being like 'I know, child..' or 'I want to too, but we just... can't, child'. something like that. I mean, even at 12 or whatever, a boy can have a crush on a teacher, right? Why not a priest?

2009-02-13 [Lordterrex]: I tottally see where your going with that.. and it is in no way the child im grossed out about.. (maybe a tiny bit?).. it's the fact that the priest reciprocates the feelings. call me.. umm.. narrow? but it grosses me out.. which is why it is perfect for this whole genre... I have nothing against you or your art that, and I hope you dont feel I am in anyway... narrow.

2009-02-13 [Skydancer]: Its quite obviously suited to the theme. After all forbidden generally also means socially unacceptable or even criminal as such acts would be punished by the society.

2009-02-13 [Artsy]: I don't think any such thing [Lordterrex]. In the official contest, the Batman and Robin freak me out. ^^

2009-02-13 [moira hawthorne]: but it was so funny! lol... seriously in real life it would creep me out... but in art... I can look at it much differently...

2009-02-13 [moira hawthorne]: and as a mother if any adult hit on my son Id break him into little dog kibble size bites

2009-02-13 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Hmmmmmmmmmm... intriguing... so far love all the artistic offerings for this un-official contest... :)

2009-02-13 [moira hawthorne]: do we get a song from you?

2009-02-13 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... I have one already.... could I use it?

2009-02-13 [moira hawthorne]: yes... all art is accepted here!

2009-02-14 [Talkris]: This is adorable and totally fits the theme! (I didn't do it I just found it on-line)http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/ddautta

2009-02-14 [moira hawthorne]: awesome Rob1 as far as I know thats the very first song ever entered in an ET art contest!

2009-02-14 [LynnAnneBrown]: Yes, I love it too. I haven't been here long, but from what I have seen of the contests and their archives, I have to say Rob's is the first song entered as well.
In fact I love this whole format. I like that the mediums are all mixed up and shown together side, by side, or more accurately with the wiki format, one after the other. It's a little like going to an artistic potluck, where everyone brings their favourite dish, and It's all laid out on one great long table where everyone can take a taste.

2009-02-14 [moira hawthorne]: again Ravan has chosen the best words to describe the situation!

2009-02-14 [wicked fae mage]: Very wonderful entries^^

I'm glad we're blurrin the line of what's socially acceptable with our art and able ta see that everythin is defendable since love knows no bounds =3

2009-02-15 [moira hawthorne]: I love that everyone's interpretations of the theme are allowed... that you are encouraging creativity and there isnt a movement to made everything mediocre and average... the easiest answer...

2009-02-15 [wicked fae mage]: Thank you. I hate restrictions on creativity. That doesn't allow for the fullest expression of creativity at all. I love bein open-minded and allowin everybody's eyes to be opened by another to a different path.

2009-02-15 [moira hawthorne]: I always believed thats what being an artist was! I am totally bored by average.. or doing what is expected... its sooooo mundane! creativity is magic! and of all places Elftown shouldnt be the 'official' home of typical! Im glad its not here...

2009-02-17 [moira hawthorne]: wow a little tongue action there or what!!! lol

2009-02-17 [moira hawthorne]: Yami.... load yours to ET... you have it linked from photobucket...

2009-02-17 [Yami]: Thanks Moira ^_^ I'm still a bit off on the uploading to elftown lol ^_^;

2009-02-17 [moira hawthorne]: you can do it in a message to someone... or from your house... or in a wiki if you ask for upload wiki privileges

2009-02-17 [Yami]: I see, Thanks ^_^

2009-02-17 [moira hawthorne]: see How do i upload art for detailed instructions

2009-02-18 [wicked fae mage]: *huggles* Maybe we should make an alternative site that allows for full creativity?

Cyanide and Happiness have the right idea:
<img:http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb301/nikkisugarplumelf/comicvalentines.png>

2009-02-18 [moira hawthorne]: hehehehehe

2009-02-18 [wicked fae mage]: Lol you like my entry? ^^ I was inspired a good bit yesterday.

2009-02-18 [moira hawthorne]: just wonderin why your male is an eunuch

2009-02-18 [Artsy]: *nods with moira* o.o and they call my entry disturbing....

2009-02-18 [moira hawthorne]: pooooooor guy... maybe thats why its forbidden tho... he has no junk

2009-02-18 [LynnAnneBrown]: *laughs softly to herself*

2009-02-18 [Araglas]: *laughs*

2009-02-18 [wicked fae mage]: Lol I didn't feel like going into details last night. Brett can be both inspiring and distracting XD

2009-02-18 [moira hawthorne]: sooooo its a wip and he is gonna get his junk?

2009-02-18 [Araglas]: lol

2009-02-18 [wicked fae mage]: o.o I was not expecting erm you to phrase it like that XD

2009-02-18 [moira hawthorne]: soooooorrryyyyyyyy how should I phrase it?... and if you say peepee Ill fall off my chair...

2009-02-18 [wicked fae mage]: LMAO I might just say that to make ya XD

2009-02-18 [Araglas]: ...*laughs self to death*

2009-02-18 [wicked fae mage]: pee pee XD *falls over laughing*

2009-02-18 [moira hawthorne]: you didnt! O.O

2009-02-18 [Araglas]: *is resurected and dies again*

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: LMAO I'm sorry wee wee XD

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: you ..... *headdesk*

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: *glomps moira* I could have called it a pee bug LMAO

2009-02-19 [Araglas]: *laughs more* lol funny

2009-02-19 [LynnAnneBrown]: And on tonights news, there are reports from around the world of a new epidemic, people all suddenly falling off their chairs in uncontrollable fits of laughter. So far we have been unable to get a comment from the International Health Organization, but sources close to the scene of the outbreak say that it appears to have started with a missing wee wee.

2009-02-19 [Araglas]: *falls out of chair laughing uncontrolably*

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: LMAO He'll be a stud, don't worry. I have one hell of a model XD

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: but will he be a Biggus Dikkus?

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: LMAO XD I'll let yer imagination run wild til I get inspired again.

2009-02-19 [Araglas]: lol wow

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: if you need reference there is xtube you can check out...

2009-02-19 [Artsy]: INAPPROPRIATE!!!

2009-02-19 [LynnAnneBrown]: [wicked fae mage] All this talk of Male Anatomy inspired me to create a Herma for your unofficial mythology contest

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: *smirks* Male anatomy... Brett is so on cam tonight XD

And I was thinking that we should make our own badges...better yet Ribbons for those who enter our contests...any thought s on that area?

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: oooooh wicked... you may want to add this bit of valentine history to your wiki...

the original *ST.* Valentine... was a roman priest... roman law at the time forbid men/boys in the army/going to war from marriage... so they would be committed to their unit/commander/ceaser... and not to a woman and family at home... also so woman wouldnt be left unsupported if their 'man' died....

the Priest Valentine... rebelled and broke this law.. secretly marring couples

he was arrested and thrown in prison... supposedly to be eaten by lions... but historians are coming up with more and more facts to disprove the whole sacrifices to lions myth... so that part is maybe debatable..

anyways... the idea of why we send/give flowers is b/c woman would give flowers to this priest while he was in prison to show their thanks for his sacrifice... they wrote their thanks on the underside of the roses leaves...

as for chocolate... it needs no excuse! its just that good!!!

2009-02-19 [Artsy]: do we really need that?

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: do we really need what? and btw... what was in your view INAPPROPRIATE!!!?

2009-02-19 [Artsy]: a discussion about the male penis in such a prudish way! PENISPENISPENIS!

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: LMAO XD

I love the male body....especially nude...and with a hawt southern accent to accompany it....

And I'm thinking of throwing up a little tid bit on courtly love versus modern romance.

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: I love penis... penises or should that be peni? anyways we were just joking

woooooot for any other brave souls unabashed enough to admit that humans their bits parts junk or otherwise sex porn and all that stuff is fun

2009-02-19 [Artsy]: the male penis is hideous unless erect *seriously strict face*

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: Lol I think we need to have a nymph contest just for [moira hawthorne].

And I think I might get kicked from the internet by the ISP if I started typing everything I'm gonna do to Brett when I can dig my claws into him....

Or perhaps a nymph confessional page. Could be fun...

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: the male penis is cute flacid... its fun to play with... but caution must be observed... b/c playing with the flacid penis can lead to it NOT being flacid... so care must be taken


ooooooh it should be a WENCH contest! lol

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: oooooh and I had to show off my signature from deviantart...

DA is afraid of cock... and its such an small inoffensive little beastey too. so shy it hides most of the time... and only stands up when someone is kind to it.

2009-02-19 [Artsy]: *gags a little bit* ok.. i'm done contributing... please don't make me stop watching the page...

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: XD Lol, you are adopted as my aunt Moira. Officially, you are my aunt. *huggles*

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: *hugggles* wicked.... Im sorry Living... i love you too... but comon... there's not a part of the human body I dont love...

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: As soon as I rape Brett I'll give you the pics and possibly video XD

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: lol!!!

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: Well, Brett is hawt XD And that accent....mmmmmm

Plus, I know that you'd appriciate the beauty of his body *smirks*

2009-02-19 [Artsy]: You people are getting odd for me....

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: Living... you are just going thru a rough time... relax... life goes on... best to go with it...

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: Sawwy. /rape to Brett has been a habit for months.

And he's just hot. *drools*

I always say rape because I know that there's no way for me to rape him since our feelings are mutual ^^

2009-02-19 [Artsy]: What's my rough time have to do with my thinking the limp male penis is unattractive?

2009-02-19 [wicked fae mage]: I'm not sure but I'll bbs. Gonna run some instances with Brett.

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: well its a feeling... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2sFGSL_ncM&feature=related stress does nasty thing to your perspective...

2009-02-19 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Hmmmmm... it appears I've contributed art to the nymphomania channel...

Cool <img:stuff/cheshmak.gif>

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: nymphs need satyrs too!

2009-02-19 [LynnAnneBrown]: Besides what use is it having a forest unless all the creatures get to play.

2009-02-19 [Madhalf Heatlump]: Here I am ladies... over here lol

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: *hides woad and rope behind me back* comin....

2009-02-19 [LynnAnneBrown]: LOL.........the huntress is on the prowl once again.

2009-02-19 [nehirwen]: I shall add this contest to festivals if you don't mind. :)
If this contest will run next year as well, I'll add it to the 'Private Valentine Competitions' section on Elftown Valentine Competitions too.

2009-02-19 [moira hawthorne]: next year there will likely be a Unofficial Valentine Contest 10

2009-02-19 [nehirwen]: Poke me when it's set up. ;)

2009-02-20 [Araglas]: lol seems I missed quite a bit!~

2009-02-20 [moira hawthorne]: thats ok... the comments are still there to read

2009-02-20 [Araglas]: lol I noticed

2009-02-20 [wicked fae mage]: So we can do this annually? *looks around for the show of yays*

2009-02-20 [moira hawthorne]: sure why not... with a different theme each year...

2009-02-20 [wicked fae mage]: Alrighty, then ^^

2009-02-20 [LynnAnneBrown]: I am looking forward to it. You know what would be fun as well. Do you remember when we used to trade those wonderfully cheesy Valentines Cards as kids..........if we could make some to send around to folk in here.........maybe even as a little tounge in cheek invitation.........I haven't fleshed the idea out......but I think It could be fun........We might even like to get the craft supplies out and have fun with construction paper, paper doilies, glue, glitter and whatever else catches our fancy. Then take pictures to share with the folk. I might not even be a contest just something fun to get folks to do and share.

2009-02-20 [moira hawthorne]: sortta like the secret santa... put you name in and everyone gets a card that makes one

2009-02-20 [LynnAnneBrown]: Oh that would be fun...........

2009-02-20 [moira hawthorne]: yes! funfun. maybe we'll do that for next year...

2009-02-21 [Araglas]: thats a cute idea!

2009-02-23 [wicked fae mage]: Wooo^^

Perhaps we should have a few events for each holiday?

2009-02-23 [LynnAnneBrown]: Why not, the more the merrier.

2009-02-23 [wicked fae mage]: Alright.... I'm thinking of what to do for all uber holidays. The green on ET is makin me think St. Patrick's Day ^^

2009-02-23 [LynnAnneBrown]: A the day when everyone's irish

2009-02-23 [wicked fae mage]: I have Irish in my blood line ^^

2009-02-23 [LynnAnneBrown]: My Mothers name was Murphy before she married.

2009-02-23 [nehirwen]: Did you know anyone could start a festival/holiday contest for the festivals wiki? :) There must be many more festivals I'm not aware of, that are very interesting.

2009-02-23 [Skydancer]: We could always start one or two of course, say, Happy Lilo Day or Holy Hedda Week, or All Nude All the Time Week, or Hot Flutterby Fritters Day, or.... :)

2009-02-23 [LynnAnneBrown]: LOL :)

2009-02-23 [nehirwen]: xD

2009-04-09 [jaraden]: forbiden love huh... i know all about that..... har har...

well maybe.. if i can be convinced... har har!!!!!!!!

2009-04-09 [moira hawthorne]: *stands with two wrapped packages in either hand* what'll it be? inspiration or motivation? or do you need the double whammy?

2009-04-09 [jaraden]: double whammy please... that's what i actually DO need.. a boss of some sorts to keep me motivated and working towards COMPLETEING my projects... i'm SUCH a procrastinator!!!!!!!!

2009-04-09 [moira hawthorne]: you and me both... actually I always have too much to do... so I do art or housework... something with bill or something with eirikr or something for myself... no matter what i do something else suffers...

2009-04-09 [jaraden]: i hear that kid... but i'm sure your hubby and little (adorable by the way) kid wouldn't mind if you had an hour to focus on your amazing art.... would they????

2009-04-11 [moira hawthorne]: almost 4pm... ive been busy all day so far... and still havent finished a 1/4 of what im SUPPOSE to have done! *sigh* i shouldnt even be here... but this is my sanity break

2009-04-14 [jaraden]: and we all need that don't we!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2009-04-14 [wicked fae mage]: *holds up a sack of wrapped packages* Sanity, anybody?

2009-04-14 [moira hawthorne]: ooooooo please and thank you!

2009-04-14 [wicked fae mage]: Wooo *starts using a paintball gun to deliver the gift of sanity to unwilling acceptants* =D

2009-04-14 [moira hawthorne]: lol

2009-04-14 [wicked fae mage]: My scanner died *mourns and holds funeral*

2009-04-14 [moira hawthorne]: oooooooh no...

2009-04-14 [wicked fae mage]: *cries on Moira's shoulder* He was too young to die *sniffles*

2009-04-14 [moira hawthorne]: *petpet*

2009-04-14 [wicked fae mage]: *huggles* I'm talking the Matt into a scanner atm =3

2009-04-15 [jaraden]: ohh those poor sacnners, lost before their time..... i knew them well!!!!!

2009-04-15 [LynnAnneBrown]: *Bows her head in silent prayer for all the scanners that have given up their lives in the line of duty.*

2009-04-15 [Artsy]: hmmm... I still need to do another.. probably just head shots, maybe torsos though... a full shot would take too long (and be too big for my roomie's scanner, just like my first entry)

2009-04-15 [wicked fae mage]: *hugs everyone* I talked [bigscaryhat] into a substitute scanner until I can get another one =D

2009-04-17 [jaraden]: excellent!! nicely done!

2009-04-17 [wicked fae mage]: Wooo! And wow we have quite a few comment pages...I just noticed that...

2009-04-23 [0-Aki]: *wants to enter*

2009-04-24 [wicked fae mage]: Go ahead and enter. And lovely Stone Sour reference. I love it. Great song.

2009-04-24 [moira hawthorne]: [0-Aki] please upload to elftown as the rules ask

2009-04-24 [0-Aki]: It just lost so much quality..

2009-04-24 [moira hawthorne]: well you shrunk it down aswell... but it doesnt look bad...
did you load it on your home page in the photo or picture slot? and have ET automatically resize it?
if it really bothers you at 500px you can load it full size tho to ET... there are several different ways...

you should check out how do i?

2009-04-24 [0-Aki]: Yeah, I load it in the drawing section on my ET
I believe the biggest it can be is 500 pixles, but it's okay. :3

2009-04-29 [jaraden]: still looks wicked!!!!!!!!!!

2009-05-02 [0-Aki]: ^^*doesn't understand how to make it bigger than 500px*

That last one is really adorable I must say. 8)

2009-05-02 [moira hawthorne]: dont upload it on your ET house in the two image slots... there are a varity of others ways to upload large images to ET ... see how do i?

2009-05-02 [arthemis_]: If you press the add a picture button underneath the page your editing (so you are already editing the page) then you get a 500px picture. If you press 'add a picture' on the right side of a page you are not currently editing, you get the original size picture. But I'm not sure if you have to have upload privilege for that.

2009-05-03 [0-Aki]: The only other way to do it is uploading it to a wiki page, and you have to have guards privilege er whatever. Can I just link it to the full version underneath the pic? Like still have the elftown one up but then be like "To see full size click [Insert link here]?
It's really not that big of a deal though, I can always just keep this one up :p I probably won't win anyways.

2009-05-03 [moira hawthorne]: no you can upload a folder on your house at the top right there is a button... or you can upload an image in message itself...

but really its fairly easy to get upload to wiki priv from the guards

2009-05-04 [0-Aki]: ET has folders now?
Woah..
*Hasn't kept up with Elftown in quite some time*
I'll try that :3 thank you.

2009-05-09 [jaraden]: just ask moira, she's helped me out too many times fer me to count!! she knows her stuff!!!!

2009-05-09 [moira hawthorne]: I dont think zzyzx is reading my advice

2009-05-10 [0-Aki]: I'm reading it, I went to the how do i thing quite a few times but it didn't answer my questions.
And I haven't tried out the folder thing yet, that's all.

2009-05-11 [moira hawthorne]: well I find folders a bit complicated... but maybe thats b/c im use to uploading to wikis...
I also upload in messages

2009-05-14 [jaraden]: see what'd i tell you!! she's the master!!!

2009-12-25 [wicked fae mage]: Since this is an 09 contest, I think I'll close it soon xD

2009-12-25 [moira hawthorne]: thats fair...

2009-12-25 [LynnAnneBrown]: Yes, probably a good idea, especially if your thinking of one for 2010.

2009-12-26 [wicked fae mage]: I am =3
Just gonna have to either think of a theme or allow a more open-minded contest to match the official one.

2009-12-28 [wicked fae mage]: Oh, Moira! Would you wanna make some nifty badges for our participants and winners?

2009-12-28 [moira hawthorne]: I think I could manage that... soon... its bedbedtime now tho

2009-12-28 [wicked fae mage]: Alrighty ^.^
Thank you *hugs*
And now the judging and polls to worry about after I close it...

2010-01-02 [wicked fae mage]: I love you is to furthermore be code for "Thank you for posting my bail"

2010-01-02 [moira hawthorne]: bail? jail? huh?

2010-01-02 [wicked fae mage]: It's from a comedy site. Things that I love you really means.

2010-01-02 [moira hawthorne]: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

2010-01-02 [Artsy]: Ah, I has a vote! <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2010-01-03 [wicked fae mage]: Woo! =D

2010-01-13 [wicked fae mage]: I'm debating when there have been enough votes. Any thoughts?

2010-01-13 [moira hawthorne]: wow there only been 13 voters so far...

maybe advertise it on MC to get more voters?

50 votes would be nice... or at least leave voting up till jan 30... whichever comes first...

2010-01-13 [wicked fae mage]: That'll work.

2010-01-13 [Yami]: At least I got one vote *weak smile*

2010-01-18 [wicked fae mage]: To increase the number of votes...
Feel free to invite people to the page asking them to vote!
We have 2 weeks to get 50 votes!

2010-01-20 [wicked fae mage]: We're halfway there! Let's hope to get there soon! *Crosses fingers*

2010-02-01 [wicked fae mage]: Again thank you to the participants and the voters. I have another mock contest running for the V-day competition, feel free to join it as well, and encourage others to, too :)

2010-02-01 [moira hawthorne]: will do btw the 15th is hubby's bifthday

2010-02-01 [wicked fae mage]: Really? My uncle's is the 13th, Aunt's 17th, Two cousins' 2nd and 5th, and boyfriend's brother's 11th

2010-02-01 [moira hawthorne]: June was a happy sexy month for your family huh?

2010-02-01 [wicked fae mage]: It appears so...but here's one for ya. July 29th is Pap. August. 1st, gram, 8th me, 16th great-uncle, 18th mother, 20th cousin, 27th sister, 29th great-aunt And countless others that I know including my roommate sitting to the right of me on August 10th.

2010-02-01 [moira hawthorne]: I was nearly born on my mother's birthday... she didnt get her cake b/c I interrupted her...

2010-02-01 [wicked fae mage]: Mine turned 19 ten days afterward :3
But my family seems to like the equinoxes and and solstices xD

2010-02-01 [moira hawthorne]: it would make an interestin study for a thesis

2010-02-01 [wicked fae mage]: Yeah, months of natural arousal

2010-02-01 [moira hawthorne]: trackin moon and sun and season cycles with fertility and conception

2010-02-01 [wicked fae mage]: Yeah, since it has been a belief since ancient times that the moon controls a woman's arousal and emotions.

2010-02-01 [moira hawthorne]: or at the very least her periods...

2010-02-01 [wicked fae mage]: Yeah, very least. Considering that moods can probably be tracked with the phases of the moon and women.
