Boo, hiss. We only have 4 entries, so we're being forced to extend the deadline an extra week.
And we were doing so well!
I might be forced to take
away everyone's clothes. Naked iconmaking! further measures.
::Looks around wildly for the results post::
Sorry! I wasn't here! I am now. Eeep.( The winnersCollapse )
You know what? I came last. Now that
is an interesting sensation... I am however very happy that every single icon got votes.( The challenge lyric and downloadCollapse )
So, I went "Hey, 0nlymemories
! Looks like it is icon day, wanna post the voting?" and what did she say? Well, she didn't so much say as mutter darkly "Smut... smutsmut... am writing.. do not disturb...mmm... slow burning smut. SMUT!" Though that last bit wasn't so much muttered as yodelled.
Needless to say I backed away (slowly, don't startle the Kitty) till I was far enough away from her wild eyes and heaving bosoms to run flailing back to the icons.( The icons for the votingCollapse )
So, do your usual, Vote
Results will be posted on Monday if the girl has, um, brought thing to their natural conclusion and I don't really need to tell you not to vote for 12
, do I?
This was an AWESOME week, and I am proud to announce the winners:( The Winners!Collapse )( The New LyricCollapse )
All comments are screened, please include a lyric with your icon, you all know the drill by now.
And also! Pimp like a mad pimping thing, I would really love to see 15 entries to this challenge, and I know you all can do it. I have faith.
( Yay! More entriesCollapse )
In the screened comments below (does yet ANOTHER paranoid check to see that they are screened), and only sad-sock people vote for themselves. We all know you have no sock like tendencies, so I should shut up now. If we are missing your lyric suggestion and you think you are going to win, stick that down there as well.
with 25 points.Second
with 17 points.Third
with 13 points.Muse
Congratulations to the winners! The new lyric will be from Frente's Ordinary Angels
. And because I'm feeling generous (and I want a big turnout, pimp like a mad pimping thing!) you can use any three consecutive words (or more, of course) and expand the contraction, if you really must.Sometimes a mirror's a miracle
Sometimes it's nothing at all
In this reflection even angels fallEDIT:
The fantabulous stumbelina
has provided a YouSendIt Link
for this week's song. Get it while it's hot.
Post your entries and lyric suggestions for next week here!
Well, we clocked in at the same number of entries as last week, but I have to tell you, voting will be difficult, because they're all gorgeous!( The IconsCollapse )
If you entered an icon, please be so kind as to post a lyric you'd like to see in a comment here (separate from your voting entry, please) or in the submission post. I'd really like to minimize the amount of time it takes to get the new challenge up, and this is a handy way of doing it.
And the new lyric, chosen jointly by myself and satanbaker
, is from the Bright Eyes
song Lover I Don't Have To Love
. As usual, you can use any of the parenthetical segments of the lyric, if you mess up I'll comment, leaving enough time for you to fix it. If you don't fix it, the icon will be disqualified.
Anyway:((But (((life's no storybook)) ((Love's an excuse))) to get hurt))))EDIT:
expand the contractions. But in the future, please ask before doing so.
Get those icons coming in! I'd really like to see more icons this week than last, so if you've been thinking about entering but aren't sure about it, this would be a great week to enter. :)
Okay, I'm really sorry for the interruption, but I have decided to remove _fleur
from her Modly duties, as I really resent people co-opting my community without so much as listening to my opinion.
The vote post was deleted, along with her other posts, so I'm ( reposting the icons now.Collapse )
Please vote again if you voted already, I really do appreciate it. Voting will be open until Monday morning, at which point I will announce the three winners and the Muse, the first winner to comment will get to choose the lyric for next week, and after that we'll go to the old system of submitting a lyric with each entry. The next challenge will end on Friday as usual, to get the schedule back on track.
I know I haven't been as good a Mod as I should have been, but I really love this community, and I hope you all do as well.
