MARRIAGE QUEST '07

Write about marriage:

Do not write about:

  • Weddings
  • Divorce

Just what happens in-between. Or until death do you part.

Consider this the invitation to the wedding... Start writing now, 'cause the wedding happens on October 1, 2007 at 12:00 AM, server time; and the divorce is final on October 15th, 2007 at 12:00 AM server time.

Every happy (or unhappy) couple will receive 10 XP for entering.

Winners are judged by XP earned. Winner receives 4 times XP earned, plus Ching!s at the discretion of my supervisor.

Second Place winner receives 3 times XP earned.

Third Place winner receives 2 times XP earned.

In the event of a tie, winner with earliest-dated entry prevails; later entry becomes second place, etc.

/Msg shaogo with links to entries and he'll post them herein below.

Now go forth and multiply (or if you have a scientific calculator, do cool things like square roots, trigonometric functions, etc.)

A consolation prize will be awarded to Hyphenated, who wrote a fabulous piece which provided a good model. It's April 4, 2005.
*Ack! Even after writing that pre-written entries were not acceptable, I accepted 'em anyway. To make matters worse, I didn't calculate Hyphenated's net XP increase during the course of the Quest.
**This total Earned XP includes prize and 10 XP for entry.
