Valentine Contest 2013
Hey guys,

The lovely Siegj and I have come up with a contest for you this Valentine's day. The contest will end March 8, at 11:59 Pacific Standard Time.

1) Song Contest, Take 2: Valentines Edition
For this project you will compose a song, using your own words, and relating in some way to Pokemon, Virtuadopt, and (of course) Valentines Day! You may use a tune that exists already, but please post the artist and song title. You may also create a song from scratch. If you decide to, you may record audio for your entry. If you decide to record your entry, you may collaborate with 1 (one) other person.

2) Love Poem
For this project, you will compose a love poem to your Valentine. The poem must contain reference to Pokemon and Valentines Day. There are many forms of poetry, and feel free to explore them as you choose. However, your entry must show some thought and effort. For example, a poem written in iambic pentameter will receive a higher score than a single haiku. If you would like to do haiku (or any other short form of poetry), feel free to post a series of them relating to each other.
Here is the awesome prize UkeSora designed. Get excited!

List of Rules: These rules are probably all familiar to you by now, but...

1) Use English.
2) Entries must relate to Pokemon, Valentines Day, and the song must also mention Virtuadopt. You may enter only one of the projects.
3) No plagiarism. Everything must be created using your own words. Offenders will be disqualified and banned. We’ll be checking.
4) If you have been banned at any point during this contest you may not enter. No exceptions.
5) You may only have one entry.

These rules may be modified or added to at any time, failure to follow them will disqualify you. If you have any questions, please feel free to post in this thread.
Entries go here!

kicia xD, I think for the poem you should create one completely from scratch.

Does the poem/song have to contain virtuadopt as an explicit word? Half the entries would disqualify, but that's how I read the rules.

Virtuadopt doesn't really rhyme with anything, so I left that out of the poem requirements. You do need to mention Virtuadopt in the song entries, however.

i'll try a poem but it'll be very cheesy and will involve Magikarp and it most likely be short but not haiku short. :|

Could you please answer one more question :)
Does the poem need to be directly told to the Valentine or is a story of how they fell in love also okay? I think I saw a few entries like that and mine is similar.

"Love is knowing and accepting
It is to be accomplice of love
It is overcome embreagar
It's the best dream ever
Maybe cry, but to have
The pleasure of the end of crying
Smile ..... "d!

I have a little question, it's about point two of the rules:

>2) Entries must relate to Pokemon, Valentines Day, and the song must also mention Virtuadopt. You may enter only one of the projects.

The song must also mention Virtuadopt. The Poem, too? Or just the song?
