    Short and Sweet

    Welcome!


    Sadly, Tummer and Master of Keyblades left us last round. Good job to them, though. It was really tough.

    Your judges for Season Two will be the Bushy Brow, Ego Imperium, Amaimon and ~Ryan~.

    For any of you concerned with biased or unfair judging, SOME of my rules and regulations for them specifically can be found in the spoiler tag. Any unfair treatment will result in the forced resignation of said judge, no exceptions. They've all agreed to the below.



    The Challenge


    This challenge is pretty simple, lol. Short and sweet. Concise and to the point. Get your point across in a short post, basically.

    2 full paragraphs max.

    You only have to use one of your characters, though you can use both if you wish. Chose wisely.

    The scenario (-Thanks Bushy. <3):

    Your character is jumping out of an airplane. No powers, no weapons. They have a parachute. The reason they're jumping out of it up to you, where they land is up to you. Be creative, but concise.



    Rules or restrictions for this Challenge.


    ♣ No interacting with any one else's character.

    ♣ You may not die.

    ♣ Remember that this is a competition. Try your best to impress me, and the judges. If you're not trying, it will be evident.

    ♣ Posts count, so be relevant. Please don't spam questions in this thread about this challenge, contact me personally.

    ♣ You have until OCTOBER 20TH, 2011 to post. Preferably before then, because we want as much time as possible for the judging process. <: If you do not make that deadline, you are disqualified.

    ♣ Be creative and have fun! It is a competition, but it's also about being creative, original and letting loose.

    ♣ Graphics are okay to use if you want them. But I'm not making them for anyone in this competition. If you use them, you're not scoring any extra points with the judges. I've made it clear that graphics does not equal superior.

    ♣ Post your posts in this thread, below my post.

    ♣ No powers or weapons.

    ♣ Once you submit, that's your post. You can edit spelling errors and such, but please don't add more on. Only because it would be unfair to post, compare to everyone else's post and edit more in based off of what other people post.

    ♣ If you edit your post, leave a reason why.

    BLAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! YOU'LL NEVER FIND OUT!
    Time was ticking. Angel stared frozen and wide eyed at the moving landscape below her. She could see the patchwork that made up the farmland and some houses. There was plenty of space, hardly any trees, so there would be no problem. Except it was so very high up. Come on. Just go. Just jump. You're fine. You have a parachute. It's fine. It's easy to use. Just pull. But not right now! Angel's heart was pounding and her lungs were working double time, despite not doing any aerobic activity. Though she didn't want to admit it, she was afraid of heights. Just a bit. "Hey! What're you waiting for?! YOU'RE HOLDING UP THE LINE!" shouted the guide. "Uh....right, I'm s-sorry..." replied Angel meekly. She blushed in embarrassment. If only she hadn't decided to gamble a bit and lost that bet her friends. All right, come on. You can do this. Just...JUMP! Thought Angel as she closed her eyes and jumped off of the plane before opening them again quickly. Suddenly she was freefalling, and lost in the exhilaration of the jump and the current fall. It's not so bad once you get over it....wait what did the instructor say after jumping? Oh crap! I forgot to count! Immediately the panic set back in again before subsiding as Angel inwardly shrugged and started counting then. What's a few seconds lost, right? Hahahaha....nothing! It shouldn't matter....hahahaha.... As she was counting mentally, she started to grow a little nervous as the ground started to get closer and closer. SCREW COUNTING! I'M LETTING THIS BABY LOOSE! Angel thought as she determinedly yanked the cord that allowed her parachute to bloom out, tugging her harshly back up a small distance. While she drifted down slowly to the ground, relief flowed through her as she knew her ordeal was finally over. This was supposed to be a birthday present from friends, but she had not wanted to go skydiving. Who the heck wanted to? However, since her friends had already reserved a day, they bet that Angel couldn't bring herself to let them waste money on her. Which was true. Yay. Money well spent. Woo.

    Fields and oceans flew by in the blink of an eye as the blue-haired girl flew the Sopwith Camel around and around. It swooped low to fly over the sea, engines roaring furiously. She giggled as the fish darted away from the incoming plane, thoroughly confused. But there were other things to see! She ascended, and circled the location. At first her eyes were tightly fixed to the steering wheel, her eyes glued to the controls. Mustering up her courage, she peaked over the side. Below her, everything was laid out, from the ramshackle house and the old man sitting on the porch to the goldfish pond. Feeling giddy, she squeezed her eyes tight and fell back into her seat padded with a corner of tablecloth, terrified and exhilarated. Faust twiddled the controller for the toy and watched her squeal. He'd bought it at the two-dollar shop on a whim. He didn't usually buy things, let alone for others, so her face lit up when he'd presented it to her. "Be very careful. This is a family heirloom." he told her gravely. She'd nodded very seriously at that, and declared with her fist on her chest, "I'll be sure not to damage it!"

    When faced with such a steadfast and true promise, how could Faust resist? He licked his lips, and turned off the controller. The results were immediate. The plane stalled fifty feet in the air, and quickly spiralled into a nosedive. KHV-tan squealed as the plane dropped and the ground rushed up to meet her. In the back of her head, she recalled her promsie to Faust. What had happened? Why did the engine stop? Would the plane survive? She had so many questions, but NO TIME. She grabbed the cover of the seat and leapt out of the open cockpit, holding it above her. Predictably, it did nothing, and she continued to fall towards the ground. For the second time that day, she clenched her eyes shut. Then the wind caught the cloth. She had a brief moment to gasp, "wha-?" before hitting the water, giving the fish yet another shock. She surfaced to see Faust on the ground, sobbing uncontrollably over the plastic wreck. "My grandfather's plane!" he cried out in anguish. Guilt-wracked and soaked to the bone, KHV-tan floated in the grime-coated pool, wishing she could sink to the bottom and die. Faust looked at the heartbroken girl in the pond out of the corner of his eye, allowed a satisfied smirk to creep through his façade of crocodile tears and whispered to himself, "Just as planned."

    “Move along, kid.â€

    Nikki took in a sharp breath as she felt the cold barrel of the gun press against her back. She took a few steps forward, just as directed, before she was stopped in front of a large sliding door. She could feel the airplane’s engine hum under her feet as she felt the goon’s body guards fit her with a parachute, telling her to hold still. To think today she was going to spend time with Corey and eat pockey, play Kingdom Hearts II and see who could get farther with beating Sephiroth, maybe hit the costume store so she could get a costume for him for Halloween and chillax at Dairy Queen afterwards since he was being so antisocial and angsty lately because of his control freak dad. But nuuu, all of that had to change when she was walking to his house and then some maniac driving a red Honda Civic swerved to her side of the curb and then she was shoved in the backseat with a gun pointed to her head. As it turned out, Corey was kidnapped as well. But he was off the hook while Nikki had to do all the work to save both of their butts by doing what their kidnappers told her to do. ‘Why does he have to be the son of rich geniuses?’ she asked herself over and over again. ‘Just why?’ The straps were suddenly tightened around her waist and shoulders without warning, making her squeak.

    “Alright kid,†the thug with the gun began in a slight Brooklyn accent. “Since we can’t trust the little rich boy to do it, you’re gonna hafta jump outta this here plane, land on his old gizzard’s company’s roof, go through the roof door, and let us in the back. Any questions?â€

    Nikki raised an eyebrow, not really seeing the logic in this plan. Were these guys completely nuts?! Didn’t he know there was a bunch of security and stuff?!

    But there was something else pressing on her mind.

    “Can I go to the bathroom first?â€

    The thug just only smirked at naïve Nikki before the huge sliding door was suddenly pulled opened. Nikki spun around just in time to see the city lights far below them before she felt hands go on her shoulders and was then pushed towards the edge of the opening. “YOU GUYS ARE INSANE!†she yelled over the roar of the wind. “DO YOU HEAR ME?! NUTS! MIXED NUTS!†But they didn’t hear her after all and she was shoved into the open air. She didn’t know if she was shrieking like a maniac or not, but she knew if she wasn’t so scared she would probably puke her guts out of sheer fright. Or maybe relieve her bladder in her floundering flight. Either one. Nikki saw the city lights coming closer to her fast and she quickly fumbled across her chest to find the ripcord as the wind screamed in her ears. “OMIGOSH! OMIGOSH!†Her shaky fingers grasped something and she quickly made the connection in her short circuiting brain and yanked on it, hard. The wind was knocked out of her as soon as she felt the parachute tug against her diaphragm and she fell limp, breathing heavily when she realized she was gently beginning to float down to the kidnapper’s desired target. She’d have to go through with this. Although they seemed completely stupid, they were smart and attached a tracking device to her ankle that she couldn’t take off.

    “Corey,†she whispered to the wind, grasping the parachute handles as she descended, “you so owe me that ne hundred and twenty-two dollar panda hat after we get out of this mess…â€

    As the plane door was forced open, the compartment filled with the roaring sound of the wind. Iona got up without a moment’s hesitation and moved to the door. She was determined to show no fear, though as she saw how high they were she had to remind herself why she was doing this. She was proving a point to herself, if no one else, that she could do this. She seemed so out of place here; the quiet little girl among big masculine men twice her size, going on a survival challenge in the middle of nowhere. She was determined to show she could do this and no silly parachute drop was going to stop her. Already she’d seen grown men cry, she would show them. She took a deep breath and leapt.

    Her long hair whipped out behind her and instantly she was speeding through the air, the plane already disappearing above her. Adrenaline pumped through her veins, pure exhilaration filled her body. She felt so free and out of control, hurtling towards the ground at incredible speeds yet she loved it. She’d paid attention to the safety briefing but that was at the back of her mind, she was almost disappointed that she had to pull the chord to break her free fall. Though when she was supposed to, she pulled the chord…it did not budge. Automatically her mind went into panic, almost consumed by the ground she would hit at great speed if she didn’t open the parachute soon. She forced herself to calm and tugged at it again harder, still nothing. Desperate now, she yanked it with all of her might and to her massive relief she felt herself jerk as she decelerated. As she navigated her way down to the ground she was certain after that fiasco she could take on whatever else this challenge threw at her.

    OOC: I have the tendancy to write a novel when trying to write a paragraph, so you're all just getting the last paragraph. lol, if you want to read the whole thing, I posted it as a VM on my profle.

    Tatsuo stood behind a lady who had been hyperventilating earlier. Now she just looked like she was in shock. He felt sorry for her, she looked scared to death. Why did I just use that expression? he thought. Scared to death? I mean, come on! A flight attendant handed him a parachute and silently told him how to use it. She looked sorry for him, too. And why not? I’m a victim in this crazy parade. I swear, sometimes I think I don’t live in the real world; I must be in some kind of story or something. The flight attendants led the group to an isolated area of the plane and then left them alone. Tatsuo felt the plane nosedive and everyone began to fall over each other, they couldn’t stand up. Sitting with a thud, Tatsuo tried to crawl to the wall, and then the plane leveled out. The pilot had gone lower. To give them a chance of actually surviving? Maybe.Tatsuo didn’t know. Suddenly, the door opened and everyone crowded as far away from the door as possible. The voice of the terrorist came over the intercom. “All you lucky people who get to help me convince the airlines to do what I say had better start hoppin’, pretty soon we’ll be over the pacific and I’m sure you don’t wanna get all wet.” Tatsuo was frozen in place. He couldn’t move, there was no way he was jumping out of this plane. But then he remembered Mao, who was waiting on the ground. If he ever wanted to see her again, he would just have to brave it out. Well, here’s to hoping I don’t go splat. taking a deep breath, He stood shakily to his feet and ran for the door.

    He was flying. The air was rushing at him and he couldn’t even breathe. Wait, he could breathe, he had just forgotten how. Silently, he started to count to ten. When he reached the last number, he pulled the cord and the chute came out. It caught in the air and he looked around, gently falling to the ground. The view was beautiful, he could see for miles, and even though he wasn’t sure what part of the country he was over, he realized that he was glad he had been forced to jump from the plane. That nightmare was over and he was headed home. Mao, I’m on my way.

    ((OOC: I started playing Owl City's Skydiver.))

    Flying. High in the sky, above millions of people, breaking hundreds of clouds as they soared through above beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii. The trip was average, at least to Jake it was. He and Lizzy were invited by his eccentric must-see-the-world aunt to come to Hawaii. One plane trip there and back and it'd be fun all along the way. But a plan. With no one in it but a private instructor, himself, Lizzy and a pilot. Was not the way he thought this thing would work. He was feeling a furious thumping where his heart should be. He felt his forehead but was halted by gloves and a helmet. Why, heavens why?! He tried to look up but they were in the heavens weren't they? Breifly he thought he should wave to his grandmother but decided against it. He swallowed hard and somehow found that a female presence was near him and guiding him towards the entrance that allow him to enter the great blue sky and the solid ground beneath. No. Way.

    He hadn't been this nervous since he touched a girl with the intent of touching her. Suddenly that presence beside him stopped him just short of the miniscul image of Honolulu and he swallowed again. He could see, dispite looking down at the horrifying ground the entire time, that the presence was green of hair. However that was payed no mind as the young voice in it let him know that there were girls down there. Beautiful girls down there. Vacationing girls from all over the world. From Russia to Britian, even from home. And not to mention the wonderful girls from back home. "Why didn't you say so?" Why didn't I think of that? Was his own reply. To get to the girls of Hawaii were his main operative here. "Thank you green..goddess..woman...thin-!?!?!?!" The green being pushed him! She pushed him! Abruptly too, he was free falling fast and all his young mind could compute was who in their right minds would push a child like that. It only took a few minutes after he naturally, accidently, righted himself and could hear the excited yelps above his own screech; that he began to understand only Lizzy would push him. "LLLLLIIIIIIIZZZZZZYYYY!!!!" And of course, that cry was met with a giggle.

    She used to wonder what clouds felt like. She used to be scared of heights. She used to have dreams where she was falling, falling, falling. Yet, the sky was always beautiful to her. Almost like an ocean, so far above her. A goal she couldn't reach. But she wasn't one to give up easily.

    What a vacation. It was impossible to tell just how fast they were going. Tobias seemed to be piloting perfectly, a hidden talent Jen never expected her father to possess. God, this is unreal. Mindblowing, really. But despite the beauty, the girl was trembling. She accepted the dare, she took the challenge. They were just kids, just something she joked about. Her friend had dared her, if she ever had to chance, to skydive. The friend had always wanted to fly. In a wheelchair since birth, it was all he wanted to feel. Obsessed with the sky. So she promised, she'd do it for him. A pact that could never be broken. And one she would regret.

    What a vacation. It was impossible to tell just how fast she was falling. The ground was flying closer, closer, then far too close. As the trees began to thicken around her, she realized the absolute intensity of what she was doing. The second she pulls the cord, she'll cheat death. Break the boundaries of human ability. And it made her happy. Happy for her friend, and happy for herself. So she pulled the cord. Floating gently onto the ground amidst the forest, she turned her head to the plane above, which was diving down to pick her up. She had flown. She had felt the clouds. What had been a nightmare for her, what had been a dream for him, it was no longer imaginary. It was real.

    "Nothing really matters," sang Mercury into his ears. Chyeze started to wake from his sleep with his headphones stuck in his ears. He sat up blinking his eyes, trying to remember where he was. "Oh yeah, Ruby's family's jet," he thought, "I should repay her back for this. I didn't even get that pendant back for her." He laid back down, cradling his head in his hands, and closed his eyes just the song was ending. The tam-tam ended the song just as the engines stopped humming. Disturbed Chyeze sat up and looked out the window and saw the left propeller was slowing down. In a panic he got up and ran to the cockpit just as "The 13th Dilemma" started. "Ladies," he cried out, smiling though as he remembered them. Two wonderful women that he couldn't help but stare at as they told him the safety measures before they left. He pulled back the curtain separating his area and the cockpit. His eyes grew as he saw instead of two busty women flying a plane two empty seats. Not what he wanted. Realizing the dilemma he was in Chyeze turned around. Trying to remember anything they said about safety he ran to the back of the plane. There just happened to be a parachute next to the door. How lucky. He hastily put on the parachute securing it around his chest and groin then put his hands on the emergency door and pushed to open it. The door ejected and a rush of air blasted into the plane. Chyeze backed up and fell down, smashing his iPod causing the song to change to the "Indiana Jones theme." "Oh how fitting," he said to himself glaring at his only escape. He picked himself up and charged at door. Jumping out he cried the only thing that came to his mind. "Dun dun dun duuuuunnnn, dun dun duuuuun." He was out of the plane, wind rushing past his face, whipping his hair around as if he were filled with ultimate power. His hat flew off his head as he watched the plane continue its crash course into a jungle.

    The images of what had happened to him just minutes ago ran threw his mind. "What the hell!" he thought, "that wasn't my whole life!" He pulled the cord above his right hand and out popped a note tied to a string from a flap on the front. It read: "Hello Chyeze. Hope you enjoy your vacation. Stay out of my life. Ruby." Flabbergasted he read it again. This wasn't a vacation, it was a funeral for him! His mind began to rush. "I'm falling fast now. About 120 miles per hour," he estimated from the knowledge he acquired from school. "Not much a person could do when they are free falling with nothing to stop them but the ground,." Then he remembered something. Every parachute had a back up. He felt around and found another cord on the left side. Chyeze pulled it and a parachute flew out and halted his descent. Chyeze grunted as it pulled on him despite the luck that the emergency chute hadn't been removed. He watched the ground below him taking in the land around him. Trees to his right, some water to his left. Chyeze landed on his feet but wasn't able to hold himself up and fell. Struggling up from under the parachute he pulled it off him and looked around. A bunch of Asians were coming to him in awe and wonder. Chyeze looked down on the trampled rice he was on. "Oh great, China," he said with a sarcastic note in his voice. The song changed to "I Believe I can Fly."

    Everyone had a different take on the challenge and each post brought something new to the table. It was fun reading every single post and feeling your characters emotions. The only problem it seemed that most of you had was keeping things to the challenge, which was short and sweet. Still, all decent posts nonetheless!

    Let's get down to it. This week, you all had a unique challenge set forth and so, I'm going to try and be as short and sweet as I can with these critiques to match the posts you yourselves made.
    Remember as always, anything to say? Any questions? Well, feel free to contact me. I won't hurt you... well, unless you're a masochist who likes pain. But I'm getting ahead of myself here.
