It’s that time.
Once again it was a case of a bunch of people being enthusiastic and full of promises then half of them being completely impotent and limp when the moment of truth had arrived. Even an extension didn’t help and a couple of you got yourselves TWICE SHAMED.
Shouldn’t be surprised though, such are the failures of the lesser born.
While many refused the call, there were a couple of you that found the gumption to drag yourselves out of the SHAME pit this time. No, you don’t get any extra praise for this, because you should have been good enough to have avoided it in the first place given how simple of a task it is, but at least it shows you have grain of self respect after all.
Anyway let’s get on with the SHAMING. New people in the pit are bolded as usual.
PIT OF SHAME
BANNED AND SHAMED
Negative (multiple times)
And of course because they’re special…
END’S CELL OF ETERNAL DISAPPOINTMENT
While Bucky was the “Mystery Participant” and wouldn’t win anyway because he was a judge, he is NOT exempt from punishment for failing to produce a story.
He had ONE job to prove how easy it was to make a story within the deadline (AND extension that he provided!) and he couldn’t even do that. Enjoy the cell.
And that’s a wrap for this contest’s SHAMING and as usual you fuckers are still terrible.
The shame gods always reap their pound of flesh. Praise be.
I thought Bucky did create a story recently. I know he at least posted a link to one in the December contest thread. I don't know if that was supposed to be his entry though.
That was another contest story he did.
Here's to another contest and my second escape from shame.
Hopefully we actually get a romance contest in Feburary as twice I've already been bamzooled along with my threat of seppuku.
How many how many of the entrants were from the lair, but not official members? I have not kept up with everyone that survived the purge.
Well good news for Mynoris and Still. They have avoided the SHAME pit.
Count me eternally grateful. Or at least grateful until the next contest.
I don't speedwrite things anymore, I prefer to take my time and write things that are more worthy now.
Yeah, but you can't manage that either. Lol
I second this as well. This would be quite entertaining, and would give many people the opportunity to rid themselves of shame. Only if they deserve it of course.
So, how would you determine who is worthy and who is not?
I was just curious what Ebon's rule of judgment would be.
Me? Well I don’t really decide much if anything, but if I were to determine who’s in I’d honestly probably use much of the same standards they’ve currently been using.
EDIT: Regardless of what I think, I’m still just a prentice villain (or whatever that may be.called) as of now. I think.
You're still more of a villain than I'll ever likely be. Take that however you want.
In that case, I’ll take it as a compliment.
Oddly enough, I was kinda hoping you might.
Anyhow, I was making that comment as a statement of fact, generally intending to be neutral. Which means that it works better if it is looked upon favorably rather than otherwise. Also, considering the place is known as a Villains Lair, it stands to reason that many of the members aspire to be called that, which is what I also had in mind when making the comment. If it was poorly received then it meant I misjudged the situation.
He just flaked out on one contest and then on the other where he was trying to redeem himself, he accidently deleted his story.
Basically he was right at the mouth of the pit and had one hand on a ledge to pull himself out and he sneezed so hard he fell back in.
Yeah, that was unfortunate.
That is, indeed, unfortunate. Sorry to hear it.
If you're talking about writing contests, that's actually an intriguing notion.
The problem with that idea is most of those people have completely disappeared or were hopeless anyway.
Probably isn't hard to see if they're still active and pair them up with either each other, or with someone else on the site so there aren't many 'automatic' winners by default.
Honestly out of the current line up in the SHAME Pit, I'd only expect Minnie or Orange to try to submit something. Maybe Royal Ghost, but everyone else is going to be slothful as usual.
Bucky, I imagine is going to write something quick to get out of the cell next contest.
By the way. What does it mean if your name is bolded?
