1 emerald 455 replies 14,322 views | started 04/23/2015 1:43 pm by planetblox2000


Welcome to LoST, a 16 member, world-cup style competition where contestants write stories that relate to a weekly theme, and at the end of it all, one is crowned the LoST champion.

How Does it Work?
Each -whenever day-, a new theme is released and contestants will be randomly paired up. They then have until -whenever day- of the same week to write and release their stories. Other PMC members then vote in a forum poll, and the user with the most votes goes into the next round.


Rules for the Tournament
1.)All entries must be posted as a blog, entries posted on the thread or PM'd to me will not be counted, until it is posted as a blog.
2.) If both users in a pair are done before the deadline, they can go ahead and post the poll if they both want
3.) If you know you won't be able to make the deadline, please PM me.
4.) If you fail to post a blog by the deadline, or have already notified me about not being able to reach the deadline, your opponent will move on automatically.Unless we have backup peeps.
5.) The usual blog guidelines, of course, apply.


Current Pairs
Brackets for Week 1 are:

Zatharel vs. 500poundsofnothing

ThePixelPony vs. Master G

Svendabomb vs. CrazyPigglet

Lola vs. Pepijn

Exoh vs. Mercer444

Jetra vs. candlevera

-Amy- vs. Havingfun_ISKEY

and finally

Pikamoar vs. Masq


Theme for Week 1
Sci-Fi Comedy!

Like, y'know, Spaceballs. A humorous twist on the classic science fiction theme. Make me laugh out of this world. that wasn't even good But for real, though, write something of the science fiction genre and make it funny. It doesn't have to be satirical but it can be.


Winners
Season 1 - Pikamoar
Season 2 - Chron

Well, the poll tied, I tied, and the 3 extra people I asked ended up in a tie... So what do you say we call this a joint win by candlevera and CrazyPigglet!

Congratulations to you both, and your trophies will be on their way as soon as I get someone to make them.

Thank you all for making Season 3 slightly less painful than Season 2! I hope at least some of y'all had fun during this process!

I have absolutely no freaking clue what the details of Season 4 will be. I don't think anyone knows. Anyways, thanks again y'all sorry for my incompetence most of the time!

The poll is tied. The last vote tied it somewhere around 5-10 minutes before the poll went down, rofl.

I'd like to get it done before the 12th but I've been very, very busy. It'll probably be done sometime before the 15th. Sorry for the delay but real life has been a pain recently.

Sigh... I remember when we used to get so many more votes on these polls.

Anyways, it's come down to the grand finale.

candlevera vs. CrazyPigglet.

The final theme of the season...

Click to reveal
Who Are You?


This isn't just any story. This is your story. What creature lurks behind the screen? Is it someone we know? Or is it someone we wish we had never known? I can understand that this can be a difficult topic for many, so I'll say this; It doesn't have to be about who you are, it could be about who you want to be, who you were in the past, or anything of that nature. Just make it as powerful of an autobiography as you can make it. And to ramp up the intensity, there's an added twist: You have a 500-word limit. Every word counts in this final fight, so make them all amazing. I believe in you both.


There is no hard deadline for your entries, but if they could be done before I get back from vacation on the 12th, I would really, really appreciate it. Good luck to you both!

that's an incredible coincidence, tbh, I have no problem with it nor should anyone else lol

Same though. I had almost no time to work on it because I have so many more important things going on right now.

Because it's the semifinals, and it's a busy time, extending the deadline to Tuesday. I know I said I wasn't going to extend the deadline any more, but, well, I'd rather have people compete than not.

sigh, I hate the public education system

I should be able to participate. I will be gone from May 26th - May 29th, for the most part, which makes it a bit difficult as I need to finish my entry for the site contest as well as the audiovisual content before then.

Okay, so they end today. Our brackets are:

candlevera vs. Pikamoar

Ahsoka vs. CrazyPigglet

The theme is:

Diary of a Household Object

This one should be pretty self-explanatory. Tell a story of life from the perspective of a non-living being. You've got quite a bit of freedom here, really.


Entries are due Monday, the 23rd, same time.

If y'all still want to do this contest, let me know. I know it's a busy time.

I finished.

It isn't a song, or even a direct story, but it has quite a lot to do with music/song.

Hopefully that's sufficient.

I know I'm the first to upload but I am going to be gone for this weekend and thus don't have time to set up a poll.

"candlevera"
"Chron"Bumping the thread because we're still at 3/8 entries (y'all have about a day and a half but still) and apparently nobody reads what I post.


No need to be passive aggressive about it. People aren't going to reply to every single update.

Chill.

Honestly I'm at the point of wanting to drop out because of the incredible stress on me from countless other things, and remarks like that don't help.


I'm not concerned about replies, but it does frustrate me when people don't read the updates and continuously ask me about things when it's right there where it should be. I apologize if my frustration makes you want to drop out, that's not my intent. This should be fun, yes. And the timing is terrible for this contest, but prolonging it would only make things worse.

I'm just trying to keep things as live and updated as possible because the last season fell apart (and you know if fell apart because I won, rather cheaply at that) due to the host's inactivity and the contestants complaining about it, so all I'm requesting is reciprocation.

Sorry.

Honestly I just want to drop out at this point. I've got better things to do and all this stuff is doing is stressing me out.

We're currently in the middle of a season right now, but if someone drops out with an ample amount of time before the deadline, you might have the chance to be added in. If not, you're welcome to join next season, if there is one.

Alright, because of individuals who don't have their academic priorities quite in line, I am giving a final extension to Friday.

In addition, Lola dropped out and Torm is taking her place.

This will be the last deadline extension of the competition, because I need this contest done before I graduate.

Deadline being 5 days from now seems a bit excessive. I, and others, in all likelihood, have finals to deal with. It might be worth reconsidering and changing it to a week.

It's just going to make it stressful with little apparent benefit. There's a time and a place for harsher deadlines and I don't think it's prudent to do so now.

EDIT: Deadline was changed to the 2nd. Not that bad now.

Hurrah, Round 1 has finished. Without much in the way of complications. Yaaaaaay!

Alrighty, ladies and gentlemen, it's finally time for Round 2!




Here's our brackets:

Pikamoar vs. Lola

Zatharel vs. candlevera

Mercer vs. Ahsoka

PixelPony vs. CrazyPigglet




And here's our theme:

The theme is... *drumroll*
Music!

You can either write a song, or even a story centralized around the concept of music. There is one requirement, however. Your story must include a jukebox (a song that is paired with the blog for added effect) to add that truly musical feel to the story. Other than that, go wild! :3


Alrighty, today's Tuesday... Your deadline will be Monday, May 2nd, at 11:59:59 PM GMT.

gl hf

And let me know by PM if there's going to be any complications.

Dangit, I didn't get a chance to break it. Guess I'll decide now...

The win goes to Mercer, since I felt his comedy was a bit stronger and I love the Tumblr post that it's inspired by. Props to Exoh for managing to bring Dante into the mix, though.
