Jace's Origin Contest Entry

So I've taken your lovely heritage and turned it into a drinking song ballad full of stereotypes and mythology... I hope you like it! smilies/icon_sweatdrop.gif

Gather 'round the fire, dears,
and warm your chill'n bones,
I have a story for your ears;
it happened long ago!
There was once a Gaian lad,
Bare-toed and fair of face,
Come now and hear my great ballad:
the origin of Jace!

Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
A drinking song for Jace!
Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
Sing along for Jace!

There was once a fluthered Fay,
with nothing else to do.
He dumped out all he'd found that day
to see what he could brew,
found himself a great cauldron,
and cleared himself some space.
Never expecting it to spawn
the person known as Jace!

The Fay, he took another draught
and went to fetch his kin,
not knowing that while he was out,
a Leprechaun went in.
The wee man took a look around
and spied the cauldron bare,
he thought it was a pity found,
and put in some red hair.

Following the Leprechaun,
another crossed the thresh;
it was a handsome Gancanagh
and he was unimpressed!
He took out his polished dudeen,
handmade of milk-white clay,
wiped it clean and tossed it in,
while laughing, 'come what may'!

Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
A drinking song for Jace!
Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
Sing along for Jace!

This went on for many days,
with visits from all kinds.
All the folk were twisting hay;
their talents all combined.
They laughed and worked up such a sound,
they brought right to the door:
brash of step and loud of mouth,
some Scotsmen from the North!

Leading was a Brownie man,
a'n** from head to toe,
he brought with him a rowdy clan,
and to the pot they stode
Climb, did they up on the rim,
Those Scottish Brownie fools,
and stuck all their bare feet within,
"oh how we all hate shoes!"

This ruckus would just not be ceased,
as Scotts and Irish played.
And when their drunken noise increased,
Folk heard it far away.
Rowing boats from distant shore,
the strangers came as one.
Bringing with: a dreamcatcher
to join in on the fun.

Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
A drinking song for Jace!
Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
Sing along for Jace!

All together, they will swear,
the romp was a success.
For when at last returned the Fay,
he was in great distress!
For in his pot, -I'll list it here-,
was not his magic brew,
but gifts compiled from far and near
all floating in a stew:

A lock of red, a white dudeen,
a bunch o' naked feet,
a shot o' humor with a grin,
a giving heart so sweet,
a banshee's treasured Nitemare Scarf,
some clothes, (but nothing green).
And last, in went that dreamcatcher
to help catch lots of dreams.

"This can't be!" our poor Fay cried,
as the last thing was stirred.
"Who asked all o' ye inside?"
But they said naught a word.
For over by the cauldron sat
our dear and much-mocked friend
The folk all marveled at the fact
and christened him 'Jace Quin'.

Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
A drinking song for Jace!
Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
Sing along for Jace!

And so they danced the night away,
drank breakfast for a spell,
then finally, they left the Fay,
all bidding Jace 'farewell'
Now you may think this tale was tall,
but don't just take my word!
Some say you can find him oft
on virtual message boards.

Oh, I just wrote a drinking song!
A drinking song for Jace!
Thank you for the sing-along, now
raise your mugs for Jace!

I sang the first two verses (the tune is repetitive). I kinda had trouble reading my own writing in places, lol.

[quote="Phanna"][color=red]Contest Entry

Made it with 30 to spare...

Flynn slumped down at a corner table of a seedy little pub on the outskirts of the Gamma quardrant called "Hfalfgnalhgnjlal" or to Flynn, "Moze Tavern". She had been there so often in her travels across the cosmos, it had become almost a second home to her. It was also the only place outside Gaia that she could get a fruit fizzer, or at least the next best thing to it. But today, she wasn't her jovial self. No raving about escaping the clutches of IMBUTS, no cheering over the latest plunder of Glorfabt Flotilla trade vessels, nothing except a banal demeanor that had all the other bar partons whispering.

The barkeep rubbed his snout with one of his tentacle appendages and quickly got to work mixing a drink for Flynn. Deep down, he knew she could use a it to lift her spirits. He loaded the concoction onto a tray and slowly inched his way on slithering tentacles over to the corner table. He placed the drink in front of Flynn, who cracked a small sort of smile.

"Did you know I used to have my own quiet shop, before those twinkle twins jettisoned me to the stars? Well, it's true. I don't mind too much, space piracy is much more fun and far more lucrative" Flynn started as she took the drink in hand. She rolled the glass between her hands and the faint aroma of spiced apple flowed upwards. "But there are days, days like today, that I yearn for that life again. Today, of all days, they are celebrating, celebrating my cultural heritage and I'm not there to join in." Flynn cried and drank a bit of the pungeant liquid.

The barkeep draped one of his ropy appendages over Flynn's shoulder and proceeded to talk to her. Unfortunately, his talking was little more than deep growls with intermittent clicks. The best she could make out was "Cheer up". Flynn flashed another small smile and went back to her drink. The barkeep slithered away, but kept glancing back at Flynn. She had brought so much to their lives; stories, ill-gotten merchandise, business, that he wanted to do something in return.

The barkeep chittered and growled at his assistant, Flynn didn't understand any of it. She was lost in thought over the St. Patrick's Days of her past. The food, the green beer, the people. She swirled the remainder of her drink around her glass, tears forming in her eyes.

All of a sudden, a familiar sound pierced the room; a paper noisemaker. Flynn looked up and glanced around to see the barkeep decorating the place and passing out party favors to the tavern patrons. His lackey was passing out mugs of a steaming alien ale that Flynn had only tried once. The patrons then broke into song, most of which Flynn didn't understand. Her smile widened though.

A local patron inched his way over to Flynn and handed her a noisemaker and said something in flizzenflazzle: "No matter how far from home, your heritage goes with you." Flynn let out a hearty laugh and jumped out of her seat to join the festivities. The alien was right, she could have St. Patrick's Day wherever she was.

Sayu's Birthday Seuss Poem
written By FuZzyKittEn

Happy Birthday Sayu, dear.
For all your birthdays far and near.
I hope you're in the birthday mood,
and get to eat some yummy food.

I know you have to work tonight,
I hope you get a day off soon.
Prepare yourself for a little fright,
when someone's about to pop a balloon.

The last half of this poem isn't totally related,
I wouldn't blame anyone if it was utterly hated.
The shortest poem, in only a slightly Seuss style.
Don't worry, I don't plan to write another one for while.

Happy Birthday Sayu,
I didn't know what to buy you...
So I wrote you a poem,
I hope it's a better than this proem,
Because not much rhymes with poem...

Today is your birthday and I hope it’s a blast,
And that this birthday outdoes the last!
Whether it’s a slice of cake,
Or perhaps a guy named Jake,
I hope something makes it special for your sake!

Happy birthday my friend,
I hope you enjoy it until the end!
Whether you got what you asked for,
Or just didn’t have to clean your floor,
I hope you feel you couldn’t ask for more.

Your birthday is your day to shine.
(And perhaps drink some wine!)
Even though you had to get dressed,
I’m still hoping it was the best,
And that you feel blessed.

Today is your day,
And you can make everyone else pay!
For dinner of course…
Or maybe for a horse?
Whichever you want without feeling remorse!

Since it is your birthday,
And sadly a workday…
I hope you still feel special in every way,
And know that you’ll always have friends in this give away,
Who wish you the best on this day!

ptsluvsnfl Wrote:
I know I do not know you well
and that perhaps this rhyme may fail
but several years ago today,
you were born; hip hip hooray!
You were born on March 18th,
Crying like a whovereenth*.
You were not born in late June
You were not born on the moon!
You were not born in a barn!
You were not born wrapped in yarn!
You were not born in a shoe!
You were not born in a zoo!
You were not born on a cart,
shopping at your grocery mart.
You were not born on a horse.
You were not born with the Force,
bouncing on a trampoline,
at the local Burger King!
You were born in Windy March,
right into all of our hearts.

(*I can make up words too, Dr. Seues.
**I hope not to imply that we were there when you were born. Because we totally weren't. Crap, what year is it? Has anyone seen the Doc?

Enjoy it so you will have stories to tell.
Enjoy the well wishes, the presents, the treats,
Enjoy the moutains of cookies, cakes and sweets!

Enjoy the adventure the day will bring, like stalking Jace Quin and stealing his ring.
Enjoy knowing that he is in Maine, and follow him if he should move to Spain!
Enjoy the wisdom that comes with being older, helpful, patient, smarter, bolder.
Enjoy a trip to any destination, and unite all people within our nation.
Enjoy the pokemon reference, or think of another anime to your preference.
Enjoy the memories of when you were younger, remember them with a burning hunger!
Enjoy the time you have now, as you grow remember this vow.

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up.
Enjoy the time it takes to grow up.
Enjoy the lession The Ataris gave.
Enjoy the inventions man has made.
Enjoy more so the special things, like first kisses, hugs and butterfly wings.
Enjoy all the colours, green, pink, blue,
Enjoy today, your birthday Sayu.

• This girl was born with a different skin tone. She always had a hard time blending with the humans. Jasmine was never too fond of being out in the sun because it made her purple skin colour more distinct.
• She likes to meet new people online and talk about similar interests. Her skin colour was never an issue. Never having been in a social environment, she was known as the shy girl who was embarrassed about everything.
• Jasmine started to become more open about having a different skin tone and came to the consensus that she ought to go out to enjoy the world a little more. Her umbrella helps her keep the suns rays off her skin, and her scarf attempts to cover some of the more prominent colour.

Dear Resort Island,

Official Complain:

It has been 23 weeks, where is the real Teacher, and in fact any other adults on this island, still stuck on this island with 25 crazy little kids needing my attention. The tiki bar ran out within a few hours of finding out no other adult was on the island. The spa is over run with kids and no longer nice, the great ocean view has diapers and candy wrappers now. The tours are of me trying to hold on the kids and keeping them calm. On the bright side, I am now 5 shades darker, and my skin is immune to bites and pokes.

Job: Baby Panda Hug-Giver

Description: Everybody needs a hug. -especially baby pandas for no explained reason! Give hugs to baby pandas wherever they are born. You are required to give a baby panda one hug a day until they are no longer cute. Pay is $1k per hug.

Benefits include: paid air fare and lodging and all the bamboo you can eat.

Job: Plant-Bully

Description: Take part in a paid study on the affects of frequent yelling on household plants.

Job pays generously in Ty Beanie Babies for reasons unknown.

Benefits include: the relaxation that comes from ranting at something that won't judge you (as far as you know. It could just be judging silently).

Complaints: It becomes murder on your throat after awhile.
You eventually realize that all of those years of studying to be a Veterinarian with an advanced arts history degree has culminated in a job which the only requirement is, "yell obscenities at a plant". At least you have all of those beanie babies to keep you company.
