About

Inspired by Description Day, this is a newly run contest to acknowledge all the brilliantly written descriptions out there! What's there to gain from it? Well, your fellow users will be able to see your incredible writing skills and bragging rights smile.gif

There are three categories: Most Original, Funniest, and Best Overall.

Attention: In tradition with the original thread we have an ADDITIONAL category in February: "matching pair description" BUT and here's the twist - the two dragons need to be on different scrolls. So search yourself a partner and win that category together <3. To qualify the dragons NEED to refer to each other in their descriptions (either by name or by a shared backstory) and ideally they should be a pair in the romantic sense).

 

Do you think YOUR description is awesome? Think it deserves recognition? Go ahead and nominate it!

Rules

* You may enter one dragon description per category (This rule applies to only nominating your own dragons)

* You may enter another user's description if you think it's good enough and deserves recognition

* Please make sure your scroll name is visible on dragon pages if you wish to submit your own dragons! (that way we can make sure users don't enter dozens of their own dragons :3 You can re-hide your scroll after approval)

*Nominations will be available for entry from the 1st to the 23rd of each month

*Voting will be held on the last week of each month (make sure to participate!)

*Please use this format when entering your dragons:

Username:
Category:
Dragon Name:
Description Link: -LINEAGE link here-

Edit: No one is allowed to vote for their own descriptions, once voting comes along, for obvious reasons

 

Know-how On Voting

 

Beginning from the 23rd of each months until the end, voting will be held for the best description in each category! Please look over all the entries and vote for your favourite in each category and the winners will be announced on the first of the coming month!

 

Please use the following format to vote: (or write me a pm)

Oh boy, I was waiting for this one. smile.gif Not going to win, but had a huge amount of fun preparing for this one.

 

 

 

Username: pinkgothic & Sethiss

Category: Best pair descriptions

Dragon Name: Neike Taika-Tessaro, Rehchoortahn & Morgrim

Description Link: Neike Taika-Tessaro, Rehchoortahn & Morgrim.

 

*squints* Although, did you say 'two'? tongue.gif

You can disqualify the entry, I won't be upset. *laughs* I just had to organise these. Rehchoortahn sadly doesn't have a Dragon Cave account or it'd be three scrolls and not 'just' three dragons... oh well. biggrin.gif

 

 

 

Username: pinkgothic

Category: Most Original

Dragon Name: Terebinth Aru'ak

Description Link: Terebinth Aru'ak

 

I don't know if I submitted this fellow before; figure I might as well. (For the record, Terebinth really is the first publically recorded offspring from a turpentine x moonstone pair; I'm super happy to have him, he's the only dragon of historical significance on my scroll. xd.png)

 

 

 

As usual, I have nothing for the funny category, and I'm generally out of reasonable descriptions for 'Best Overall'. (I just ain't going to top Karyorrhexis any time soon.)

That's some intense stat collecting, pinkgothic. ohmy.gifAlso I doubt you'll be disqualified, lol

___________________________________________________________

 

Asdf fine I'll submit some this time. But I'm only doing it because I'll feel bad if I don't submit Derk and Himar and I might as well do the other categories while I'm at it. Submitting things makes me extremely nervous. :/

 

Username: Dimar & Herk (I'm the one submitting them, since Herk's the host. If anyone has issues with this, please speak up.)

Category: Best Pair Descriptions

Dragon Name: MM Derk & Himar CB

Description Link: Derk & Himar

 

Username: Dimar

Category: Funniest

Dragon Name: MM The Reincarnated Sock

Description Link: I guess it's funny if you know Sock. idk

 

Username: Dimar

Category: Most Original

Dragon Name: MM Eyebrow Whip

Description Link: I guess it's original because I've never seen another description about murder and eyebrows and whips.

 

Username: Dimar

Category: Best Overall

Dragon Name: MM Sweetly Treasured

Description Link: Treasure

 

Pretty much all of my descriptions are really strange and based on inside jokes, so deciding which to submit is hard.

This is my first time submitting anything and, like Dimar, I'm feeling rather nervous about it. unsure.gif Anyway, good luck to everyone!

I did have a hard time searching for funniest and best overall, but I believe that I made the right choice. So.....those are my two cents, but good luck to everyone who enters!

 

(On a side note, do we get badges or some such thing for the last DotM, or do we just get the privilege of knowing we won our category? Since I'm a bit....confused by all of that, to be honest. blink.gif)

At the moment there's just the satisfaction of winning, though I feel like I've seen badges or plaques from the original contest... Herk obvs would have to be asked, but I don't think she'd be against the idea if anyone happens to have any skill at making badges. I think it's a good idea. x3

Dimar your descriptions are cute, especially the pairing and terrifically nonsensical eyebrow one xd.png

 

Some type of badge / prize would be neat, if it could be arranged.

*points to sig* Back when Grish still ran the contest, they made custom badges for the winners... there was one for each category with the dragon's name below. Unfortunately the contest only ran for three months before Grish disappeared. I think it would be great if someone would make badges again. They don't have to be personalized, just a cute little image to stick in our signatures.

 

Herk: About the pair category, would these two count?

Ah. Thanks for clarifying all of that, since I saw the badges in Hawktalon's signature and was kind of like 'whut'. Dang it, if I had any sort of badge-making skills I would totally make some.

I guess I'll enter, as a few of my descriptions were approved while I was more inactive. :P

You have one week to vote.

 

Please remember not to vote for your own descriptions. you can vote here or send me a pm smile.gif

 

Sorry Sister - but as far as I can tell your dragons are on the same scroll, so you didn't qualify for the "pair" category.

Dragon/Owner's name: MM The Reincarnated Sock / Dimar

Comments (only if you want to): It's not easy being a sock! X'D I really liked Napoleon's, too.

 

Category: Most Original

Dragon/Owner's name: MM Eyebrow Whip / Dimar

Comments (only if you want to): No Dimar stop stealing all my votes but seriously I can't stop laughing because Derk hahaha YOU TWO KNOW WHY

 

Category: Best Overall

Dragon/Owner's name: MM Sweetly Treasured / Dimar

Comments (only if you want to): *flips table* DARN IT DIMAR but seriously what a cutie pie dflkjdflkjdf yes come lead me to Herktopia / Quo Vadis and Glyth were really nice too! I don't think I've seen you enter descriptions before, sister--looks like you're going to be stiff competition for the rest of us! biggrin.gif

D'aww thanks for the votes guys. <3

And no, Herk! If Derk and Himar hadn't won it would've been very sad indeed. They've been our babies since we got married, after all. wink.gif
