Hello everyone, welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

First, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.

Now that we have the legal stuff out of the way, this month your task is to tell a short story involving your favorite video game character and what they are getting up to for April Fool's Day.

You can tell this story using any medium you want: you can draw a picture, write a poem or story, perform a song, write a song parody, film an interpretative dance, perform a skit, make a music video, write a comic, or anything else you can think of. Then, the moderation staff will vote on the entries, and the top six will win prizes. One $20 Gift Card will be awarded as the grand prize, as well as five 10 karma runner-up prizes.

To enter, create your work, and then upload it to a third-party site; for example, YouTube for videos, Imgtc for images, pastebin for text, or MediaFire for other file types. Then, enter with the link.

Important! Please submit your entry using the following format:

Entry: http://www.yourentryurl.com/thisisanexampleurl

I cannot guarantee your entries will be considered if they are not in this format.You can include other text in the post, so long as the above text appears on its own line somewhere in your entry.

The deadline for entry will be in two weeks, on April 15th at 11:59PM Eastern Results will be posted one week later on April 21st

Notes
1. Joint entries are not permitted, due to the nature of the first place prize, I can't really split it. If you really want, another user can help you, but only the one that actually posts it will win the prize.

2. Maximum two entries per user, but only one winning entry per user. If you enter twice and both qualify for prizes, your higher-place entry will receive the prize karma, and lower-placed entries will be bumped up.

3. All work must be original. That's not to say that you can't use other images, music, etc. as part of your entry so long as your usage of that other content falls under the privileges granted by Fair Use, but the actual end product must be your own.

4. The Terms of Service still apply -- don't post any entries that violate any of the normal terms of service.

5. Mark your spoilers. If your entry somehow spoils some game, note before the link to the entry what game is being spoiled.

6. To change your entry, delete your original post. I won't be compiling a list of entries until the deadline passes, so as long as your post is visible at the deadline, it'll be added.

7. The subject of the contest can be a bit flexible. No one's going to check if the character in question really is your favorite character, and your entry can focus on more than one character if you'd like.

Why do think anyone wants to do homework for a CHANCE at winning a lousy 20 dollar gift card? I am not a circus monkey.

These contests probably aren’t for you. Some people find them fun!

I personally like the “name the tune” ones the most.

This sentence has five words. This sentence has eight words. Only one sentence in this signature is true.
Are there just not a lot of people entering this time around, or are the majority of entries not posting in this thread?

Might also just be people waiting to submit until closer to the due date

Yeah, I have found that something like 80-85% of entries are submitted in the last 6 hours of a competition in most cases.

Yeah, I need to do this.
Cecil's my favorite character, but I feel like Izuna (the Unemployed Ninja) would be more prone to April Fool's stuff. So, I'm having a hard time deciding what to write.
Edit: I got an idea... I'm not sure if it's tasteful, though.
