Alacrity Valentine's Contest in Admin Updates


(02-9-2013 at 7:24 PM)

Hello Alacrity!

We're excited to announce that we're having a site-wide contest just in time for Valentine's Day! You can enter in only one of two areas: Art or Poetry. Both will deal with the theme of "A Valentine for Alacrity".

Art: Any visual art relating to the theme can be posted. It must be your own art, but beyond that, be as creative as you can think!

Poetry: You don't need to rhyme or have a meter. Just stick to the theme and you can write whatever comes naturally to you.

All posts must be made to This Thread by 11:59 Ala time on 14 February 2013. Anything later will be disqualified.

There will be four winners for each category, one each chosen by a site staff group. The prizes will be as follows:

Moderators: Magical Dog Whistle
Helpers: The Professor Plush
Artists: Custom Accessory Maker
Admins: Magical Lifelong Locket

And to prove that anyone has the talent for this - in case you feel intimidated about entering your own - here is my own attempt at both:

Aussies are Red
Pit Bulls are Blue
It's Singles Awareness Day
At least I have my Shiba Inu

Read, every day, something no one else is reading.
Think, every day, something no one else is thinking.
Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do.
It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.

My life was composed of varying shades of monotone
Every type of grey black and white
With no shine of day or dark of night

My artist created me with an expert hand
with trillions of pixels and billions of bland

I begged him to spatter some red on me
or some brown
or a nice green, and he didn't leave me be

He gave me a dollop of cream and brown,
and a hefty dose of loud and proud
he slathered me with wet nose kisses
and snatched away my listless

Now that i have you,
I'm a splash of yellow
because you in your playfulness is not so mellow
and kibble doesn't disappear on it's own
and dog hair doesn't just hop into my comb
and most of all, I am no longer alone

I did not wish to die a pale, pale, white
but to live smothered in glorious, glorious brown and bright

you may walk past me in the street and think of me as normal... but when you get to know me, you understand why I wear the straight jacket :P

Beauty as my heart beats strong,
I know it now will never be wrong,
For you are mine as I am yours.

Forever above the stars we fly,
Eternal passion we cannot deny,
Come with me my darling dear,
Take my hand and never fear.

Nary shall a teardrop fall,
For together we can stop them all,

Love we shall for ever more,
Go we now to tear down our walls.

Happy hearts forever burn,
Lets us be so we do not yearn,

Our hearts are filled with a love
That cannot be learned.

In that big blank spot there should've been:
"Happy valentines day to those who can't spend it with their loved ones". No, it wasn't a poem, it was just a few words that I wanted to add (like in the cards). If you need anything to be zoomed in, please let me know, I'll be more than happy to take pictures of the area you want to see closer.
I'll explain the pic a little if you don't understand:
Edme, the Sheltie you see here, has received a Valentine's Day gift from her mate, Mason, who is in the war. She has little ones on the way, and Mason will hopefully be back home when they're born.
