That’s right… it’s been a while, because I’ve–you know–been busy and stuff. But with my student teaching dwindling down to its last few days, I’ll have infinitely more time to devote to both the LAMB and my own blog (Shameless Plug: Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob).
But what I’m doing here now is a matter of grave importance and most awesomeness. It’s time for me to host yet another ‘Versus’ Event. First… there was battle of the badass babes with Sirens of the LAMBs. Then, there was the action hero roommate… action… with The LAMB Action Hero. And now… now we have… okay, so, the title is still under construction (currently with only one idea), but it’ll be revealed upon the start of the event!
So let’s get to the point, shall we?
This time around we have a theme much the opposite of last time’s. The theme this time is “What Movie Character Would You Sick On Somebody To Make His/Her Life A Living Hell?” And by ‘His/Her’, I mean the ‘somebody’, obviously… not the movie character. In other words, what movie characters are either so annoying or so dastardly that you would would sick him/her on somebody else to terrorize them?
What you would need to do is write an essay (or narrative, if you wish) that explains why your character would be a bigger pain in the ass than your opponent’s character.
Here are some of the rules/specs:
-Each essay/narrative should be no longer than 500 words.
-This isn’t gender-specific.
-Unlike last time, superpowers and aliens ARE disqualified. To keep this interesting, I’d like to see human characters. It would be too easy for a Xenomorph to make somebody’s life a living hell over the average pain in the ass. So as long as the character is within the realm of realism, that’s fine (and yes, comicbook-movie supervillains are okay… again, if they’re human).
-Voting period for each match will last 3 days.
-Entry will be first-come, first-serve. I need 8, 16, or 32 contestants for everybody to have a match. If I’m over any of those numbers, but not quite reaching the next number I need, I’m going to take the first ones that replied.
-Please, and I cannot state this rule enough, make sure that you are POSITIVE that you will have time to do this. During Sirens and a little bit during Action Hero, I continually had people either dropping out or not having time to write their entries due to work or vacation or sickness, etc. As such, the event was dragged out to a ridiculous amount of time (Sirens) or longer than anticipated (Action Hero).
– Finally, make them good and vote appropriately! I don’t want to see Fletch in the Finals again! Er… I mean… Have fun! (:P)
So, if you are interested in doing this, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your top 3 choices of characters (in the order you’d most like to use). Also, give me the name you want to be listed under for when I post your entries and make sure to tell me what blog you own and/or reside at. It’ll make things a lot easier when I go to post what things were written by whom.
