Welcome to the first ever (I think it's the first) fan-fic poetry contest!

How does it work, you ask? Well, it's simple. You choose a comic character, then you write a poem that relates to them. It can be about them, their origin, an event. It can be about love, tragedy, or just anything that involves the character. Once everyone submits their poem, people will vote which they think is best. There is only one round, so don't expect some long drawn-out competition.

Rules:

The poem MUST relate to the character in some way.

I haven't decided on the word count, but it should not be too long.

Everyone picks a character. Once a character is picked, no one else can write about him/her.

I figure we could all try something new. Whether you're good at poetry or not, enter anyway.

Please comment below if you want to sign up. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

@bumpyboo: Come on. Don't be a chicken. If I wasn't on my phone, I would link you to GOB from Arrested Development making chicken sounds.

Come round the RP section and test your dynamic writing, Don't be a chicken after-all : p

Also, Superman is a badass choice. Nice one.

@razzatazz: Alright! You need to pick a character

#18 Posted by RazzaTazz (9676 posts) - - Show Bio

@awesam: Sure, but any character that I pick won't be well known enough for anyone else to have chosen.

@pyrogram: I've never really wanted to RPG. Not sure why. It's actually a lot like narrating in first person.

#20 Edited by AweSam (7375 posts) - - Show Bio

@razzatazz: Might as well name them anyway so everyone can know who you're writing.

#21 Edited by Pyrogram (40857 posts) - - Show Bio

@awesam: RPGing is never in first person, It may have even been against the rules at one point I think...

@pyrogram: Most of the ones that I've read before were in the voice of the character.

#24 Edited by Pyrogram (40857 posts) - - Show Bio

@awesam: 99% of them are not! Only people like Surkit really do it, Its good! But....hard really.

@awesam: What's this "Poetry" you speak of? :P

any specific style you looking for or can we do any type?

#26 Edited by AweSam (7375 posts) - - Show Bio

@the_poet: Wait, your username isn't just for show? Any style as long as the poem relates to the character.

@pyrogram: Well, they weren't from this site. Almost all of the ones I read here were part of some grand thread where a lot of people RP.

#27 Posted by The Poet (8338 posts) - - Show Bio

@awesam: I dabble in a number forms of writing...

I was a treasurer of a poetry club once (useless position btw since we never had any money or spent any money...). Then I was elected president (still think the election was rigged since my opponent voted for me instead of herself...)

@awesam: Should do it how we do it in the CCC's, Post em here...getting feedback pre-voting is one of the best reasons to even join IMO.

@pyrogram: Like, people post their own poems here?

#37 Edited by Pyrogram (40857 posts) - - Show Bio

@awesam: If they want, somebody done a poem for a CCC once, Forgot who though, I mean it like this, instead of sending to you people post their entries into this thread to get more feedback so they can improve rather than wait and get less replies in voting.

@awesam Okay I just did a poem on Mr. Freeze. I'd like to submit it if you're still taking contestants.

The Frigid Creed of Mister Freeze by @dngn4774

My body is frozen, but my heart still burns

From the pain of losing all the love I've earned.

Nora, my Nora, sweet Angel of Ice

The things I'd do to bring you back would cost a limitless price.

May god help the man who stands in our way

For if the Bat interferes, I'll make him pay!
