An unusual cold front has hit the island overnight, bringing a large snowstorm with it.
Thankfully, it cleared up before mid-day, but as a result - Winter has officially come to Platform Island!
Though it's slowed to a mild snowfall, it's still really piling up out there, so you decide it's best to bundle up accordingly. You pull on your best boots and your thickest jacket and cozy gloves before heading out into this Winter Wonderland.
But what's this? There's something peeking out of your mail box. Surely Apiri didn't deliver in this weather? But the post never rests, and you pull out a creamy white envelope with your name scrawled elegantly in gold ink.
What's inside? An invitation...
The Wintertide Ball
Tis the season to be jolly and probably eat a lot of sugary baked goods, and in light of that fact, it was decided that a celebration is needed. To welcome in the New Year with high spirits and good cheer, the Platform League has come together and organized the Wintertide Ball!
Hosting the Wintertide Ball is a dearly honored guest that has traveled all the way from the Alola region, Haumea the Ninetales
. She has been invited from her village on Mount Lanakila to help us celebrate the closing of one chapter of our precious island and the beginning of another. With her assistance, it has been designated that the ball shall be held within the Ice Castle in the Acuity Mountains.
Ice Castle is a shimmering pale blue palace, on of the most ornate and elegant structures on the island. No one knows who built it and why it's been left abandoned, but none can deny its splendor. The sleek exterior and interior is inexplicably dazzling, made out of such material it looks like it could be completely built out of ice crystal and freshly fallen snow. Everything is comprised of this same strange material, and yet it is not freezing to the touch and is instead, oddly, a standard room temperature. Already plans are in motion to begin decorating the castle.
The Wintertide Ball will begin on the afternoon of January 7th and will continue on until the evening of the 8th. But not only will there be dancing, tons of good food, music, and an Alolan Christmas Tree (courtesy of Haumea's Exeggutor companion), but at this ball we will also be announcing a King and Queen of Winter, along with the Prince and Princess of Winter! Haumea herself will be the one to crown them at the ball's ending ceremonies.
Our honored guest, Haumea....................
EVENT: Winter Queen & King and Princess & Prince Crowning
During the ball, a Winter Queen, a Winter King, a Winter Prince, and a Winter Princess will be crowned. But for that to happen, you have to choose who you think is best to win these illustrious titles.
- How this works: You will need to fill out the Invitation template supplied within this journal and write that you would like to be put into the nomination pool for crowning. Members who wish to be considered for the titles will have until the 2nd of January 6th of January to finish their entries and submit them to the group's events folder. Once we have all the entries, a list will be published containing the names of the candidates for King and Queen.
Send a note to ~PPMail under the name “Winter Queen/King Candidates”; in this note you must include the names of who you think are best for these titles. It is very important that you include both the character's name and their creator (so we can eliminate any confusion). This is not a regular nomination, you cannot nominate someone who is not already on the list.
- About nominations: Everyone is allowed to weigh in on the titles. You can only send ONE note and can only choose one person for King and one person for Queen… so choose wisely. You will not be able to change your vote after you send the note.
Those with the highest votes will become King and Queen, while runners up will be the Princess and Prince.
Opening for Entries: Starting now! - End date for Entries: January 6th, 6PM PST
Voting will begin: January 7th - End date for Voting: January 8th
.................... RP EVENT: Winter Wonderland
Platform Island has been covered in mountains of snow! While it's disrupted a few things, life still resumes as normal. But that doesn't mean you can't take advantage of it anyway. We encourage members to submit artwork and engage in roleplays (you may submit the roleplays as well!) of their gijinka enjoying the sudden change in weather. What for? The fun of it, of course! It's snow, guys.
All entries will be displayed at the end of the month for everyone to see. And, well, there may be a little surprise awaiting those who do submit something.
You may use this meme as one of your submissions for this event, if you wish!
