The fringed curtains of thine eye advance,
And say what thou seest yond.
The Tempest, 1. 2
~William Shakespeare


As you push past the fluttering silken drapes, a gentle breeze brushes your face. The breeze fills the entire room, seemingly from nowhere and carries with it the scent of fresh food, the sound of light conversation, and the gentle sway of soft woodwind instruments.

The lighting of the room emanates from the floor itself as it glows bright white beneath your feet. Silk drapes litter the room as they dangle from the ceiling and sway in the soft breeze. As your eyes follow the flowing drapes upward, you notice that the ceiling appears as a blue sky. Clouds stain it as they pass overhead, held by the calm wind that fills the room itself.

A white bar is situated off to the left of the entrance, the smiling bartender is prepared to offer you any food or beverage you could ever dream of indulging in.

Welcome to the Elegant Tempest.

"Hello, as you already know, I am [Albert Wesker], Host of the Elegant Tempest Room for the Fifth Annual Gaian Ball~ I joined Gaia around the year 2005 and have spent much of my time lurking around the many forums that Gaia has to offer. From the forums themselves I posted in the GCD as well as the GD and have enjoyed my time on these boards quite well~ This being my first ball, I am excited and honored to be able to contribute to such a wonderful cause as this~I know that this will be my first ball among many to come~"

For the final Avi contest which is the Mr. And Ms. Wind Room contest, I will be accepting 10 contestants for this competition (5 female, 5 male) wherein the contestants shall be competing for the top slot of Best Avi, THIS CONTEST SHALL BE RAN ON THE 10th OF JUNE THOUGH, ALL NORMAL AVITAR CONTESTS SHALL BE HELD NORMALLY AND SHALL FOLLOW THE RULES LISTED BELOW.

As with other Avitar contests, The FIRST 10(TEN) people to send me avis for the contest shall be admitted into the contest itself. This shall be done on the user account of Lil'Wesker so if you want to be a contestant, Please do not send your selected avi to [Albert Wesker], send it to Lil'Wesker instead.

Upon receiving the first 10 contestants, I shall screen shot the image to prove validity and then set up the post below that is listed for current contest contestants.

Voting for the Avi Contest shall be done in the Poll, each contestant shall be assigned a number and the contest duration shall be 1 hour or first to 100 votes, depending upon popular vote among the contestants.

During the ball, I shall post descriptions and you must find who I am describing, what I am describing, basically whatever seems to connect to and completes the information given :3

Categories of these riddles may vary from Actor Quotes to Questions regarding Academics (YES, THINKING, LOLOLOL I'm not evil :3).

If you wish to submit an answer for this contest, please send a pm with your answer to Lil'Wesker.

As with other Trivia contests, I shall establish a similar system as a Radio show, for example:



Me: What is alternative name for H2O?

Fourth gaian to pm me the correct answer wins~

Random Contestant entry #4: Water?

Me: CORRECT!!!

Random Contestant entry #4: OMGOMGOMG


Gaians Numbers 1 through 3 may have gotten the right Answer, but they were not gaian number 4. It's luck, timing, and knowledge that win in this game~

As with the other contests, I shall be Screen shotting everything to keep up with Validity and Truth.
Due to lack of popular favor and the time wasted in the last voting session for the previous Haiku contest, the Haiku Contest itself has been dropped so as to make time for other contests.

I apologize for the inconvenience but it must be done.
