Happy Halloween 2011, everybody!
Made for the Halloween contest at Metroid-Club.
Which doesn't mean just anybody can't enjoy it! Please give my hard work a chance!
-EDIT November 2011-
I won! I won! First place in the contest which included not just other literature works but fullfledged digital art. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who voted for my work; the competition was stiff and my victory close but it was you that made it happen. Thank you.
Here's the proof:
Contest 9 - Halloween:trophy:
And the winners are...
:star: FIRST PLACE:
:iconnofairatu: with Metroid - Shades of Yesterday
Ghosts of Samus' past return to her when she answers a distress call and boards a destroyed ship. An excellent bit of fiction that reminds us of how badass Samus is, and how spooky her games can be!~ Chosen by :devzimeta08:
:star: SECOND PLACE:
:iconzoesaday: with The Evil of the Thriller
I don't know - it just made me laugh! An Halloween is all about fun, right? Haha. Enjoy Dark Samu dancing to MJ's thriller. We love that you added in the background zombie dancers. Lovely work!~ Chosen by :devmistytang:
:star: THIRD PLACE:
And I got an awesome pic from Dan Rootay as my prize as seen here:
When I see long stories around DA, I usually download them to read at my leisure. You can always do that with any of mine to make it easier if you'd like. Let me know what you think if you get a chance to read it. Constructive comments and suggestions are always welcome!
I must stop doing that. Imagine how much better my blood pressure will be.
But seriously, thanks for the correction and thanks super-triple-more for actually reading my story...and liking it to boot! All the "Alien" and "The Thing" jokes were fun to put in, I hope you enjoyed those too.
Did you realise that you won the competition? You certainly deserve it! Oh yeah, one more thing....please do more of these stories! Hey, maybe even think about on entitled 'project dread'.....eh...eh..
Thank you for your kind words, again!
Hmm, Project Dread, eh? That was a DS Metroid game that never materialized, right? It would make for a great title...and yes, being a shameless Samus fanboy, I will definately do more Metroid stories.
Honestly, the only negative thing I have to say is that you misspelled Bryyo as 'Brio'. But overall, I absolutely loved every line of this.
And thank you very much for your kind comments; It's very sweet of you and I'm pleased you took the time to actually read it too. As you say, so many people go "oh joy" when they get past the preview pics and see a story instead.
And I have to agree that Samus should not be all Other M emo... Not to say her heart's not made of gold if you don't dig deep enough, but that game's portrayal of her really, really stank IMHO.
And I really enjoyed putting in Samus' line about: "There no such thing as ghosts, DUH!!"
You're very welcome. I also agree that Other M's portrayal was pretty bad, it's the main reason I've only played the game once. The graphics are stunning and all, but the way Samus was done is just... ech.
Yeah, that line actually made me laugh XD
The only old Metroid game I have is Super Metroid on the Nintendo Virtual Console :c And I haven't even beaten that yet XD
