Good news for the couples or soon-to-be couples! Valentine's Day is coming! Bad news for the still singles. Go back to the computer and continue your boring life. (lol, jk)

We have until January 27, 2012 to give me interesting Valentine's Day contest theme ideas for the official 2012 Valentine's Contest! I will only take 10 idea slots.

Since I started this notice a bit late ( I apologize; aliens and abominable snowmen made me lose track of time), I will give multiple ideas already!

Ideas:
1. What is the most unromantic thing to do during a romantic moment?
2. That person you love to hate; show them your own version of "love!"
3. If you could have anyone (secret crush, admirer, superhero, etc) for Valentines, who would it be?
4. I am single on Valentines Day...
5. What is the best present to win him/her over?
6. That jerk Cupid is after me!
7. You are teleported back in time to when you have a chance to say your feelings to that special person
8. Last minute rush to get a Valentine's Day present!
9. A suspicious flying masked bandit just stole your first kiss! ...What?
10. Someone sings a romantic/not-so-romantic song for you

Feel free to shoot down my ideas with reason. I can be unbearably corny sometimes! Remember! These ideas do not have to necessarily be romantic!

I admit I'm not a common on FAC but I'd like to try a contest so I have some ideas to toss out for this one.

Idea I;What happens when it turns out your love interest already has a lover?

Idea II; "Aren't we allittle old for this?" Remember when you were a little kid and you gave everyone you knew a valentine? How about doing that all over again, except...let's say your older than 13. Any images based on this concept.

Idea III; Holiday Mix-up, every holiday is somewhat romantic (save thanksgiving...) So why not create a hybrid.

I personally like your ideas for "I'm single on Valintines Day..." and "What's the least romantic thing you could do" I kind of think they could be a good combination.

Is your computer still busted? Can you not use the library scanners? You know, if one has an incredibly steady hand, decent lighting, and a bold colored enough picture, the camera quality would not turn out so bad. If your brother has an iphone, just borrow his quite briefly. An artist's picture quality should never be undermined!

Quote:
idea 1: That person you love to hate. Show em abit of love...or not. (Nothing uber violent of course)

idea 2: If you could be with anyone on valentines day..who would it be?

I replaced my #2 (What love really means to me) with your "That person you love to hate. Show em abit of love...or not" idea (I love your wording) because no matter how much I read it, it still sounds ungodly cheesy. I incorporated your "If you could be with anyone on valentines day..who would it be?" idea with the "Secret admirer or secret crush" idea.

Excellent! There is always a time for a first! Thanks for the ideas too!

Quote:

I kind of want to incorporate that into the #4 "I am single on Valentine's Day..." and reword it as "I am single, and my crush already has a lover on Valentine's Day..." (talk about depressing!) Should I do it?

I like the idea behind doing it all over again, but not many artists would sympathize with giving everyone Valentines after 13. That idea does inspire me with another idea though. Hows about "You are teleported back in time to when you have a chance to say your feelings to that person"

Although it is a true and cute thought, we want to do our best to keep it Valentine's Day based. Crying or Very sad

I like it! I put it down as "Last minute rush to get a Valentine's Day present!"

Quote:

That is so ridiculously random, it just might work? I put it down as "A suspicious flying masked bandit just stole your first kiss! ...What?"

Update: I reworded the #1 "What is the most unromantic thing to do?" idea into "What is the most unromantic thing to do during a romantic moment?" That can make the scenario funnier, but it may be a little specific.
I reworded the #7 "Cupid is after me!" into "That jerk Cupid is after me!" I think it is more hilarious that way.

The "flying" description is just to exaggerate the scenario and make it sound more unbelievable/hilarious. Everything else is up to the artists's interpretation! P;

Since no one is suggesting a 10th idea, I have added in, "What is "romance" in a nutshell?" a simplistic and vague enough idea! That idea may turn 10 times more lame after a good night's sleep.

The poll will start soon! Sorry for the quick choosing! Thanks for the quick feedback!

Hehe last min idea if it was chosen as the contest theme, sing to them with a lute! (Yeah Ezio gave me this idea; tights are not very appealing to his legs lmao. xD REVELATIONS FOR THE WIN!)

And yes moniter is still busted sadly, and ppls are dragging their damn knuckles at finding a replacement. Plus scanners are not at this library as far as i know. So asking bro to use phone for pic it is! (He better too...if not I always can ask his bud Sue. xP She LUFFS taking pictures.)

(Quoting incorrectly...)"Quote:

I kind of want to incorporate that into the #4 "I am single on Valentine's Day..." and reword it as "I am single, and my crush already has a lover on Valentine's Day..." (talk about depressing!) Should I do it?"

That works really well. I say go for it!

(I know how to quote on here, but I'm lazy...)"Quote:
"Aren't we allittle old for this?" Remember when you were a little kid and you gave everyone you knew a valentine? How about doing that all over again, except...let's say your older than 13. Any images based on this concept.

I understand. It was just a funny idea...Admittedly its very odd and I get why most artist woundn't go for it, talk about unromantic...I'm probably actually doing it this year, though. I like your reinterpretation. It works.

(I'll Quote right next time, I promise)"Quote:

I just wanted to have three thoughts, I felt this one was just an amusing argument. Yeah, keeping it to the right holiday seems to be nessecity.

Quote:

I replaced "What is "romance" in a nutshell?" (because it is lame on its own) with "Someone sings a romantic/not-so-romantic song for you." I did not specify on the lute since every artist would have to draw it specifically for the contest, and I like instrumental variation.

Quote:

I have decided not to add to it. Logically, if theme is too contradicting and depressing for the current theme (Valentines), it is hardly going to be chosen. Thus, "I am single on Valentines's Day..." will suffice. It can include those who are both satisfied and unsatisfied with this fact.

Thank-you to everyone who gave suggestions! I said I would stop taking suggestions on January 25, 2011, but your ideas were great, and I was too busy to stop listening! The poll has been created: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BLBLK6Z

VOTE OR BE CURSED. TRY TO EXIT THE POLL WITHOUT MAKING AN ANSWER. JUST TRY IT.

29 votes are in after 2.5 days! Not bad! I will tell you that the one that is currently winning is something I did not expect to be in the lead...but that does not say much since I stink at predictions.

EDIT: I have extended the poll deadline to February 3, 2012 because it will be easier for me to pull out a contest picture during the weekend! Excuse my incredible naivety!

Also, 43 votes are in!
