There once was a lyrics competition so amazing, all of Louis' efforts paled in comparison. It was like a smoking with until it was so it made the cry of all the epic in front of . Well, this is the almost-as-awesome-but-could-never-live-up-to-the-expectations-of-the-first sequel. THE RULES Everyone listed as participating must come up with a random theme. Some stellar examples from last competition are shown below: A small band of natives stumble across a crashed private jet and accidentally set off a series of events that may cause global thermonuclear war. The smileys here at the LPA begin having affairs...and the ninja does NOT like it. Tough shit for the rest of them. An anti-love poem trying to DESPERATELY turn someone off of you by highlighting all the wacky details about yourself. Once all the themes are submitted, I will do a random drawing that will assign someone with SOMEONE ELSE'S theme. No one but you will know what theme you were given. You are then to write a poem or lyrics based on that theme. There is no length limit. The entries are sent in and then voted on by a panel of incompetent judges. I mean, um, you. To the top three go the spoils! THE VOTING I'm changing things up this time, and we'll see how it goes. Instead of choosing 3 to vote for, you will have to RANK all the entries (minus yourself). So say there are 10 entries. The highest ranking entry will get 9 points, second best gets 8, third gets 7, and so on. Obviously, if you didn't enter at all but still want to vote, you get to rank from 10 to 1 instead of 9 to 1. So you're REALLY gonna have to look over each entry and see who deserves more points. The points will be tallied up and rankings will be announced, along with who wrote the original theme, who wrote the entry, and who voted for who. If you'd like to give reasons as to why you voted, those will be included as well. REMEMBER, YOU DO NOT RANK YOUR OWN ENTRY. THE PRIZES In the name of healthy and vicious competition (and with mod/admin approval, of course), the prizes will be as follows: 1st Place: - A dramatic reading of your lyrics/poem/short story read aloud via an audio recording by Joe, in his best possible British accent. - Custom User Badge Title & Colour chosen by you for 2 months. - Change the NAME, SIG & AVATAR of an entrant of your choice who places below you for 2 months. 2nd Place: - Custom User Badge Title chosen by you for 2 months.* - Change the NAME of an entrant of your choice who places below you for 2 months. 3rd Place: - Custom Badge Title chosen by you for 2 months.* - Change the SIG & AVATAR of an entrant of your choice who places below you for 2 months. *Your badge colour will remain the same. If you're a Super Member, it will stay blue, but you can change the text etc. So, who's game?!
