    Any newcomers lately? Or anyone wanting to volunteer for judging? Just putting up a reminder that we're still in business.

    Uh... I can write a poem for Halloween. But I doubt it'd be all that long. o3o;

    Well, it'll be pretty short but... if you want me to I'll make a poem. No where near the required length though...

    You get bonus points for including something about the Color Rangers. I look forward to whatever you come up with, Sai-chan.

    Well, generally classic Halloween is with witches, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, mummies, black cats, zombies, spiders, pumpkins, frankenstien, skeletons... but not really aliens. lol

    but why? I've always dress up as an alien! ...I should write a story about an alien who is shunned when he goes to a monster academy and-- dammit stop filling my mind with story ideas, Sai-chan. I can't keep up with anything. I just know I'll wind up leaving it unfinished yet again like all my other entries thus far. D: (is there such a thing as being too inspiring? ).

    Well, if it would help you, I've always been an idea person and/or an idea helper. lol

    sorry about being too inspiring?

    I completely dropped the ball on this. I forgot we were thinking about themes and I was just waiting for people to enter while also looking for judges (how on earth did Kenny do all this?)
    I'd go for the Halloween theme, but Jay already entered a story and it wouldn't be fair to ask him to change it.

    Spoiler:
    When you’re alone in the night
    Darkness all around
    What do you think you’ll see?
    In the night of All Hallows eve
    A witch flying on her broom
    Casting a shadow on the moon?
    Or her cat lying beside her
    Basking in the noon
    Her hat and dress of blackened death
    Flutters in the empty sky
    The clouds grant her cover
    Shields her from prying eyes
    For she knows whoever sees her
    Might tell by candle light
    Of the witch they saw
    Flying through the night
    Underneath the ground right about now
    The zombies are waking up
    They’re crawling and creeping out of their graves
    Up to the air of the starless dark sky
    Their green decaying hands
    Reach out to grab a fistful of sand
    For while their heads are out and about
    Their bodies however need a little help
    In the dungeons beneath the earth
    The vamps are all waking up
    Their coffins creaking and squeaking
    As they all finally lay up
    They prowl through the cities
    All around the town
    Their capes all a'waving
    Looking for the perfect treat
    The best blood to drink down
    Their pale faces glowing in the moonlight
    Their black coats and capes
    They hide in the hallways
    Awaiting her to take the bait
    Near the woods at the end of town
    There are hairy creatures all down
    In the forest, howling at the moon
    The werewolves are all gathered
    Soon they’ll raid the city
    Eating all they can
    But never once killing
    For they prefer their hides
    Away from man
    A spider spins his web somewhere
    In the branches of a willow tree
    He spins and spun and spins again
    His string wrapping up a little meal
    He soon will eat once he's done
    And during all this midnight chaos
    Though few shall ever see
    The monsters riding a broom
    Or the ones hiding under trees
    Only the pumpkin smiling his toothed smile
    With his candle lit eyes
    Will ever watch the monsters
    From beneath darkened skies


    Uh, well, he's something I came up with in the last hour. It's not really good (especially in some parts) but hey, it's something. xD

    Oh, lovely poem! and by lovely I mean it kind of gives me chills, but in a good way.

    my god, this alien could be some kind of epic fusion between Prince Baka and Zim!! Mwaha ha ha... yes... I can see it now..

    Chills? How so? o: Thanks!

    I don't know who this Prince Baka is, but if he's as crazy as Zim I fully support this fusion.

    It's hard to explain. 030 There's just some kind of magic to your style. I don't think it's just the fact that you wrote about Halloween, but there's life to it. It paints vivid imagery and sort of makes me feel like dancing to some kind of tune. It just feels like a song that I can almost hear by reading. ... or something. and somehow the zombie part was delightful even though ordinarily zombies would freak me the fuck out.

    Prince Baka is this narcissistic alien who loves causing mayhem and trouble for his own entertainment and will go to extraordinary lengths to mess with people. He drives everyone nuts and doesn't give a fuck. He's hilarious and childish even though he's actually very intelligent.

    Haha, maybe I should write poems more often. I like adding a 'sing-song' vibe to my writings because I like what it adds. It just flows much better and feels nice. <3

    I'm kinda surprised I added zombies. I hate zombies and they normally frighten me--but it's halloween and what halloween wouldn't be complete without zombies. I just had to make them... less creepy. lol

    I think I love this guy. He just sounds amazing! And combined with Zim?! Doitdoitdoitdoitdoit

    Yeah I think that's it. You take things that can be scary and turn into some magical wonder. It's thrilling.

    okay! and this time I should actually attempt to properly plan a story. this:

    plus this:

    has the potential of greatness if I actually work hard on it.
