Well...firstly I apologise for not posting sooner. I had appointments Thursday & Friday, and though I planned to post after my physiotherapy, I was utterly exhausted. And this weekend has been ridiculously hot (34ºC with the 58% humidity) here, so I`ve not been up to this ^^;

Anyway; the extension led to 3 entries, so what should we do?

Three entries isn`t really a good contest, and with that amount it-as [livejournal.com profile] zeffyface has also said-doesn`t really seem fair to award a winner with. But should it still be treated as a contest then? Or just leave it as is? If anyone else was working on stuff though, there could be another extension (I only chose the 27TH as it has a digital root of 9 & I've been playing a hella lot of "9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors")...But it just seems like that would be flailing at this point.--But it is still a possibility. So what should we do?

I also want to apologise if my hesitation & multiple posting caused annoyance that lead to the low participation. I really have not had a good time with online things (well and everything really) the past year, and I fear that the things I did to try not to have a failure of a community event, are what caused it to be such.--I really am sorry. And you lot again really are wonderful.

Well 11:59PM GMT on June 21ST, 2012 came, and then it went, and no-one posted any entries. Did people forget?

Anyway; I'll leave it open until the 27TH now, since it's sad.


I should say I am just more in shock than anything. And I am sorry if I've been too annoying :(

Yep, yep! There is just onedayovera week left for posting in the Minuet of Spring 2012 contest**! So this is just a reminder to post entries before 11:59PM GMT on June 21ST.

...And I still have yet to send my 3DS off for its hinge repair, and this is what I drew this entry's doodle on in "Game Notes".

Minuet of Spring Contest 2012:

What You Have To Do:

Write or draw something for the Shink [Sheik/Link or Link/Sheik or however you want to put it ;)] pairing--there are some catches though~:

            ▲ Each submission must be at-or-under 600x600pixels [click here to see what that looks like] or at-or-under 600words.
            ▲ Each submission must be inspired by a song in some way.
                        → Not quite/necessarily a songfic, just a song as a overall theme/idea/inspiration**.
            ▲ Each submission is to be posted between May 22ND & June 22ND, 2012 [one month!]

There will be two categories***. One for fan fiction, and one for fan art. You may enter one, or both categories if you wish, but please only one submission per category!

Posting Format: [please simply make a post in sheikxlink_fc& do not link to your own journal or another website****]

Each post must have "Minuet of Spring Contest 2012" in the entry title, along with the category you are submitting for ["fanfic" or "fanart"], and your user-name [find-out how to do this here]. And tagged with "contest: minuet of spring 2012".

Then fill-out the following & place it at the start of the post:

Song: title -- artist

Also please put your submission under a lj-cut [find-out how to do this here]! Finally if the content is at or above a 'Teen' rating, please Friend-Lock it***** :)


After everyone has posted their entry, I will go through and number each one and put-together a Poll and I will keep the Poll open for two weeks. Please vote for a winner & a runner-up for each of the two categories.

Winners & Prizes:

Each category will have a winner & a runner-up as decided by the members of [livejournal.com profile] sheikxlink_fc.

The prizes to choose from are:

A commissioned fanfiction by [livejournal.com profile] vatelle,
A commissioned fanart/fanfiction by [livejournal.com profile] lady_noremon,
A Shink button or magnet,
A 2 months paid subscription for LiveJournal or 500 LJ Tokens

OR if someone else wants to volunteer. Remember that is you volunteer to provide a prize, you can still participate in the contest :D
It is up to the winners & their chosen prize provider to communicate with each other to work out the prize.

**An idea from [livejournal.com profile] arora_kayd!
***Will be singularised like last time if only fanfiction entries are posted!
****Makes it easier if everything is all together, and for any back-ups. I apologise for those that prefer to have stuff elsewhere only. And to be more annoying, please don't lock entries here to comments just for the contest.
*****Already a community rule!~

Getting this out again at a time hopefully people will see. I think I will post a contest post up tomorrow (today I was busy because the place I live at had no hot water). I don't know if people will participate, and I admit I am anxious since no-one replied to the last post, but if it is up then it is up.

It will run from tomorrow until at least either June 22ND, or whenever my 3DS gets back from repairs (it & my RAZR V3c are what I usually Internet with). But again I need to know who would be willing to offer any prizes/prises! [livejournal.com profile] vatelle has offered their services (I hope you still plan to! And do you mean writing, art, or both?!), and I listed previously what I will offer too. But if anyone else would wish to, please let me know so I can include you!

...I have "I Want Your Sex" stuck in my head, which is the tune I typed that title to, so yeah ^^; Kaido Kio is my default user-picture, so blame that.

ANYWAY! Happy first day of spring :D (for those in the Northern Hemisphere, 'in any case' ^^;)! Since it seems like you wonderful lot want a contest (according to the poll at http://sheikxlink_fc.livejournal.com/2012/03/11 ), then there shall be a contest~ So that means we need to work things out for it.

So there shall be a 2012 Minuet of Spring contest. Physical and non-physical prises/prizes seem to be tied, so how does a choice like last time sound? [livejournal.com profile] vatelle has offered their services (and so do I), but would anyone else like to volunteer anything? Art, writing, unlimited rice pudding, et cetera, et cetera? If you would like to, just leave a comment in this post saying what :) I personally will be offering art, writing, a Shink button like last time, and/or a 2 months paid subscription for LiveJournal. Sadly doujinshi for this are too rare & expensive to offer :(

Next I would like to know if the 2009 format** was alright? 600 words or 600x600 pixels were the maximum limits. The point of that was to have a bunch of short/small entries that wouldn't be daunting, and kinda fit in with it being for spring. Would you like a different set-up? Should tge limits be higher, or lower? Should there be an added theme? Last time an entry had to be based on a song, was that alright? Here is the opportunity to let me/everyone know!!!

I would like to get everything organised within the next 2 weeks so that it could be opened around April 4TH (04-04), and run until May 5TH (05-05) if there are no objections. So please spread the word around!

[identity profile] lady-noremon.livejournal.com
OKAY! I am finally getting to the posting of the results [like 10 days late on this]!

I firstly want to apologize for all the lags and stuff from my end. When I first posted the contest, life was going awesome. But just since April there has been a lot of real-life stuff come-up, and I haven’t been online much at all. BUT today is my birthday~ ;D So HOPEFULLY don’t be too mad at my frequent absences, and reply to this with lots of flaming [I am 21 as-of 4:00pmAST~].

Sooooooo; the winner of the Minuet of Spring 2009 contest is *dun dun dun*:

[livejournal.com profile] sometimesamuse !!!! With a fanfic’ using "Time's End" a remix by Theophany from Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask


The runner-up is:

[livejournal.com profile] roflolmaomg !!!!!! With a fanfic’ using "An Angry Blade" from Iron and Wine

*insert unlock noise here* [and a detailed view of the results can hopefully be seen at this location~]

SO the commissioned prizes each of you lovelies have a choice of are [if the volunteers are still willing]:

An Fanfic’ By:
[livejournal.com profile] annenburg**,
[livejournal.com profile] aubuyn ,
[livejournal.com profile] fireflypenance 


An Fanart By:
[livejournal.com profile] annenburg**,
[personal profile] lady_noremon ,
[livejournal.com profile] paperclipluver ,
[profile] summer_mcp 

Please get in contact with your chosen writer/artist directly in order to work things out :D


The offer for a “Shink” button still holds if either of you would like one mailed out :3

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone for being so awesome! There were a lot of great entries, and it was so fantastic that there was so much interest. Hopefully things will settle down and an late autumn contest can be held~. *crosses her fingers that this HTML works, since Rich Text is not working for her at the moment*

Soooooooooooooooo; *badum ba bum* The results of the poll I posted almost a month ago!:

  • Defiantly going to be a contest!

  • Defiantly going to be split into two categories!

    • fan art

    • fan fiction

  • There will be a winner and a runner-up for each category!

  • There will be prizes! [no idea when I started spelling it with a 'z' D:]

  • You guys all rock so hard!

  • The most asked for prizes were commissioned fan art & fan fiction!

  • This time it is going to be fluff-based, but there will be a angst-based one later this year ;)

So as I mentioned in the previous post; If you want art/fic for winning, than there needs to be volunteers. Already three lovely 'bachelorettes' members [[info]fireflypenance[info]aubuyn, & [info]rein_kun] have put themselves forward for writing (seriously you guys are win!), so now there just needs to be some artists :D Once that is done I'll open it up and get this show on the road! *weeeeeee*

Also if you are signed-up for prizes you can still compete!~♥


I also want you peeps to know I backed-up (I've been doing it about every 3 months) the community with LJ-Archive.

Hmmm, yes just posting to say that the 'Link' & 'Sheik' tags are for if it is a post with just one or the other. Like if you posted a picture of Sheik by himself, or a cosplay of Link ^^ Also there is a 'introduction post' tag for all those that are letting themselves be know ;)[Poll #1345613]Again,, you guys are awesome!

Enter and lets have lots of new Sheik/Link fics and pretty art!

I supposedly won the community competition, but that's only because one person voted. I don't know who you were, person. but you're clearly a man among men. The rest of us FAIL.

SO. The real winner is clearly [livejournal.com profile] lady_noremon, for keeping this community afloat even when the rest of us are too frikkin' lazy to do something so simple as cast a vote. We owe her prizes people, prizes prizes prizes! Because I'm obnoxious and I said so!


Come on, thank her, draw her something, write her something, propose, offer her your WOMB, I don't care! We just have to make her feel awesome. She deserves it.
