Winter Break Just Got Interesting

Here’s the scenario, good people. My best friend (Alma, aka thesmell0fyourskin) and I (Margaret, aka christmasintheed) have made a bet, see? One with rather high stakes (high stakes if you know us and our opinions and likes). Starting at midnight last night, Alma cannot make ANY sort of contact with one Austin Burns. She chose to eliminate contact with him for reasons that would take too long to explain, so we’ll leave that to your imaginations.

The rules are as follows.

______________________________

-No contact can be made with Austin under any circumstances by Alma (exceptions: death and emergency related situations, in which the bet becomes void). Contact-making services such as Facebook, text, Skype, facetime, letters, etc. are prohibited.

-If contact to Austin is made by Alma within the time frame of winter break (December 21st, 2012–January 7th, 2013), the latter has two options of punishment to choose from:

-Make a Star Wars fan video and post it to both her personal YouTube and personal Tumblr accounts; video must be at least ninety seconds long.

-Reblog 30 counts of Star Wars from Margaret’s ‘star wars’ tag; proper tags and nice little comments are mandatory.

-If contact to Austin is not made by Alma within the time frame of winter break (December 21st, 2012–January 7th, 2013), Margaret has two options of punishment to choose from:

-Make a post containing Anakin Skywalker hate; must be at least five paragraphs long with all paragraphs containing two or more lines.

-Reblog 30 counts of William Regal on Tumblr; proper tags and nice little comments are mandatory.

-No mention of this bet can be made by either party in punishment posts or inquires made by followers/friends about the punishment posts, thus making this post and updates concerning the bet between December 21st and January 7th the only mention followers/friends of either party get of the wager described above.

-If either Alma or Margaret loses the bet, Alma’s laptop will be provided to the loser to perform the punishment in audience of the victor.

-If Austin makes contact with Alma before she makes contact with him, she must leave the message alone in light of him thinking she lost her phone this past week, thus making her not contacting him less suspicious.

-Punishment posts must be posted on Tumblr within a month of losing the bet. If this criteria is not met, the respective punishment will be increased.

-If Alma decides to make the fan video and does not complete it within a month, the length of said video will be increased ten seconds for every day task is not completed starting thirty days after defeat.

-If Margaret decides to make the Anakin Skywalker hate post and does not complete it within a month, the length of the five paragraphs will be increased one line for every day task is not completed starting thirty days after defeat.

-If either party decides to reblog posts (Star Wars for Alma, William Regal for Margaret) and does not complete it within a month, five posts will be added to the required number of reblogged posts for every day task is not completed starting thirty days after defeat.

-If Alma is defeated in this bet, she must contact Margaret on the day of said defeat as soon as possible that day. If there is delay, day of defeat must be provided.

Alma, if you would like to add anything, just reblog this post and add the rules you see fit to add.

Ladies and gentlemen of Tumblr, the Main Event of Winter Break is on. As to what we’ve gotten ourselves into, we’ll find out soon enough. CAN Alma go two whole weeks without talking to her best friend Austin? And if she doesn’t, WILL she survive through her Star Wars punishment? Keep tuned in over the next two weeks to find out.

ALMA, STOP SCROLLING.

This, I have decided, will be your last piece of homework before you are forced to sit through 802 to minutes of Star Wars over a period of sixteen days (that is, if Jesusmas is kind to me. Otherwise, you’ll have more time to prepare for this inevitable fate).

This song is the theme for Anakin and Padme’s relationship). I find it breathtakingly beautiful. To quote George Lucas, “Their love is complicated - pure yet forbidden, personal but with profound ramifications for an entire galaxy.”

Just listen to it. That’s all. Just…listen.
