Holiday Contest! :)
« on: December 09, 2013, 09:42:13 pm »
As you may have heard, I'm writing an Amaranthe-and-Sicarius holiday story for my blog (I'll get an ebook version out eventually too). It may take place on a tropical island, but it'll be winter holiday-themed nonetheless. :P

It'll be up before Christmas. Since the story's theme is gift giving, I thought it would be fun to have a little contest here.

If you can guess the answer to one of these questions, I'll send you your choice of three signed books (I have EE1-7, Encrypted, and Decrypted out in paperback at the moment).

1. What is Amaranthe giving Sicarius for Solstice Day?

2. What is Sicarius giving Amaranthe for Solstice Day?


I don't know if people will guess them exactly (especially Amaranthe's), but I'll send books to someone who gets close). The contest will be open until I post the story on my site.

2. What is Sicarius giving Amaranthe for Solstice Day?


1)  Well, I don't believe the red herring about the shirt.  :P  Hmmm... since they are having adventures away from Turgonia, she found some new adventures about Starcrest for him to read. 

2)  I'm really tempted to say a full body massage, but I think by this point she's already talked him into one of those.  I think, like Books & Mal knew she'd like it, he found her a mystery to solve.

I so want the shirt to happen, but I also don't expect it.

1.  She gives him a kitten (okay, I don't believe this but it makes me feel happy to contemplate)

2.  He gives her chocolate (although some other sort of sweet would also be acceptable)

I'm still think about Amaranthe's gift for Sicarius, but I think he's going to draw the EE gang for her.

Sicarius will be giving Amaranthe something sweet to eat.

Ok so are we talking physical items or... deeds? If they're actually exchanging items,
Amaranthe is going to give Sicarius a colorful shirt. A tye-dyed shirt.
Sicarius will give Amaranthe a brand-new Crossbow.

I think Amaranthe will give him something that relates to what used to give him some happiness in his childhood. A book perhaps, or something that used to belong to Rias when he was still an officer in the navy.

Sicarius will give her a portrait he drew of himself, her and Sespian all together.

1) she finds the other black knife and gives it to him so he will have the pair (the one starcrest took from the tunnels that was confiscated in kyatt)
2) he gives her his black knife

1. I'm not sure what she'd give him. A brush? Frosting? A place to live?
2. I wanted to say he'd give her dirty drawings of himself, but that's not sweet. So sketches of them and the whole team (Books!)? Or maybe a drawing of them together. That would be cute.

For Sicarius' gift to Amaranthe, I also wondered whether he would give her a drawing of some kind, but I will go with a poniard accompanied by some sort of pastry.

As for Amaranthe's gift to Sicarius...hmmm...perhaps a sweetened, organ-meat cake?

Just my two cents :-)

1.  Amaranthe will give Sicarius a comb (it's small, so it can always fit in his handy rucksack)
2.  Sicarius will give Amaranthe a drawing of the whole gang, including Books

Sicarius to Amaranthe: Pastries, because he knows how much she likes them.

Amaranthe to Sicarius: Clothing that isn't black. Whether or not it's one of those shirts, well... :D Perhaps a compromise between those shirts and black, such as a dark green.
I am me, accept no imitations.

1.  A meeting with some relatives of his, perhaps his mother's family?

2.  He'll take cooking classes from Bas, and prepare her some fresh pastries. With a side of fish eyes.

I think Sicarius is going to teach Amaranthe to meditate...

As for Am's gift to Sicarius, I'm a little more iffy on that. I think she'll present a gag gift (sunflower yellow shirt) and then give him something more meaningful, but I don't know what that will be. SIgh
