Polls are funny things huh?
I am looking at the competition Poll and wondering why 6 people voted for no competition but an art jam instead? I mean, if they weren't going to enter...what difference does it make? And if they were going to enter, why not be in with a chance for winning a prize?
Sometimes, I don't know about you people
Polls are funny things though, that is why I am careful about what I ask on mine. I see them as a feedback tool, so if I put an option on there and it wins, I better be prepared to follow through on the voter's wishes. But that's just me...
So..good new everyone
I have counted up the results and they are overwhelmingly in favor of a competition this year!
82% - 18% in favor...the people have spoken!
So..the competition, what will it be about?
The theme is Undercover, so a scene or story featuring my oc En-Trance in an undercover situation. It can be played for fun or peril, up to you, as long as you follow the rules below
(hey it's me...there were always gna be rules
Now I say En-Trance, but 18% of people voted for Sugar and 18% of people voted for any of the named oc's, so...
here is the deal, if you have an idea featuring another of my oc's you really, really
want to do, note me and we can chat about it.
The rules are fairly straightforward and are as follows
- Permission given to use En-Trance for an image or story for purposes of entering this competition only. Image or story can and should be posted on your D.A. page first, but nowhere else.
- As the theme is "Undercover" En-Trance may not be depicted in her purple haired, costumed appearance
- It's me, so no full on nudity or humiliation...please. Keep it tasteful, En-Trance must retain her panties at a minimum and the image or story must be D.A. safe but feel freee to have some fun at the same time.
How to enter
- Create your story or artwork
- Post it on your page and send me a link either on my profile or by note with the word Undercover in the heading
- I will then post your entry to the competition folder and the journal tracking all entries (if any...lol)
Entry window and prizes
The competition will run from today, Feb 12th...to June 21st 2017
As of now there are three prizes
3rd Place - 1 month Core membership
2nd Place - 3 month core membership
1st Place - 1 year Core membership
Depending on number of entries and if I have a hard time deciding on 2nd and 3rd I may expand the number of prizes at those levels, but their will only be one overall winner.
Details on En-Trance
En-Trance, real name Maija Jarvi, is a 3rd generation Finnish-American in her early to mid twenties, and in my canon continuity she is a super heroine and member of the Cassandra Network.
In her heroine guise she has distinctive purple hair and violet/lavandar eyes.
As Maija, she has dark brown hair and brown eyes but see powers below.
Height - 5'3"
Weight - 125 lbs
Bust - 34DD
Powers and abilities
Siren's voice - Maija's voice alters her targets brain patterns making them open to suggestion and even commands. As with the DC character Preacher, this makes her extremely powerful if she can talk and the target can understand what she is saying, and absolutely powerless if she is gagged or the target doesn't understand the language she is speaking.
As of CY Maija speaks English, Finnish and Spanish fluently and has begun to learn rudimentary Russian.
Shape Shifter - Maija can alter her height (but not her weight) adding up to 5" in height. She can also change the bone and muscle structure of her face to a minor degree and change her hair and eye color at will.
Fighting Skills - Maija ran away from home at age 16, spent two years drifting through Verdant City before getting a job as a stripper. She learned to defend herself on the streets, and fights dirty. Her proficiency in hand to hand has been greatly complimented by her Cassandra Network training, where she learned from Miss Martial, one of the best proponents of hand to hand in the world.
As well as those outlined above, Maija is susceptible to most attacks that would effect a normal person, though thansk to ehr powers she is extremely resistant to the mind controlling abilities of others.
Maija/En-Trance typically works undercover in a vice like role, using her voice and talent for disguise to infiltrate criminal organizations and bring them down from the inside.
Most of her foes only become aware of the Shadow Siren's presence when it is already too late, and she dons her famous costume to bring them in (and get photographed by the press)
So there you have it folks...I hope at least some of you are tempted to enter and have a little fun
If you have any questions, whether on Maija or another character you would like to use instead...drop me a note.
