IshiHime Contest Announcement  
I'm still surprised at how much of fandom thinks that Bleach has ended, but it's only the first week of Sensei's vacation. Let's see if I can goad your idle hands into doing some fanwork for a contest? XD XD XD

Ishida’s Birthday! Deb’s Birthday! Fanfic Contest! Fanart Contest!


It’s a tradition now!

Birthday Bash Winners 2009

Bleachness Birthdays Winners 2008

Winners 2007

I always try to pay back fandom for the many pleasure its afforded me every year with this contest but hey, the recession and all... my son's bar mitzvah (oy) and I'm saving my monies to meet longtime fandom friends at my first con this year (wish me luck--I'm a fan con virgin!) so this year's contest prizes can't be as spectacular as last year's. There's no shortage of new Bleach goodies out at amazonjp though but instead of buying a whole prize, I can foot $25 gift certificate towards one of the many Bleach calendars, DVDs, etc. Also, I do have some rare IshiHime goodies to offer (seen below) and as I did last year, I'll write a short fic for a winner (name your poison--I'll do any pairing!)




And as always, thanks everyone for being here for bleachness  and for me and my crazy Bleach obsession. I still can't get over how my little fanblog has grown over the past few years, and I'm always very happy with the feedback and letters about this place. Believe me, the positive stuff far outweighs the few crazy anon flames I get about this site and makes keeping this place up worthwhile.
Current Mood: thankfulthankful

Currently putting the finishing touches on a donation fic, and if I have time afterwards I'll definitely participate. Ulquihime/Ishihime solidarity FTW. ;)

TRADITIOOOOOOOOOOOOOON! TRADITION! *starts fiddling on the roof*

To bad I'm a lurky anon and can't participate in the fun. :(
I'll just cheerlead on the side lines! *Waves IshiHime flag*

Best tradition ever ♥

I hope I'll have time to enter this year and hope that my deviantART watchlist isn't getting tired of me drawing Ishihime xDD
_debbiechan_: COMMUNICATION_debbiechan_ on October 13th, 2010 01:56 pm (UTC)

Oh, someone asked if I would be willing to give DeviantArt points for a prize and I said yes so there you go.

As a substitute for the $25 gift certificate or as an additional prize if needed. XD

Oooooh, this could very well be exactly what I needed…

*starts thinking*
gorgeous_moth: headbanggorgeous_moth on October 13th, 2010 04:12 pm (UTC)
fufufufu The goodies are too awesome for me to miss >:)

I might just call on my non-existent talent in drawing and make something!
♀*La Muerte Chiquita*♀: ishihimela_kalaka on October 13th, 2010 06:04 pm (UTC)
Aaaaw Deebie I dunno how could I manage this lack of IshiHime if it wasn't for you. Maybe I just would be depressed and sad like hell at this moment.

I think I don't have words to express how happy I'm that you love IshiHime as much as me (or even more) and how awesome was to know that you choose IshiHime theme for a contest. YAY 8D

You've made the rest of my day, my ideas are here, my muse is ready thanks to MUSE (yeah the band is inspiring me lately) and I need to listen to Chu Bura cause I don't remember the song but the lyrics hit me as hard as a maze

*fangirling to no end*

Thank you again Debbie :3 BTW Comics count as art too??? (I haz a evil idea kicking my head XD)

I DON'T KNOW HOW ELSE TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE ISHIHIME DROUGHTS EITHER! So HEY! A CONTEST! XD I loved seeing them in the recent manga but haha, no interaction.

Of course comix are art, GO FOR IT!
♀*La Muerte Chiquita*♀: ishihimela_kalaka on October 15th, 2010 04:04 pm (UTC)
YESH! yeah no interaction but surprinsingly I'm pretty calm about it ante whole Orihime bussiness. Maybe is because she is here, safe again and in the real worldn with her friends who can help her and health her. And Ishida is here too :3

I'm busier than ever, have projects that I started in June and in near completion for other things, but I'll think of something to give you Deb and share on your comm. ^_^ <3333 . (If nothing dramatic or crazy happens in my life @_@) you know I always participate even if it is late T__T.

I probably won't participate, but congratulations for hosting this contest the for the 4th year now.

*joined LJ just for this <3*

OMG those prizes are a must have!!! ♥u♥

I am SO joining. I hope I'm good enough for this. xD Seeing the winners from last year, I don't think I level up half of it. ._.

YAY FOR ISHIHIME!!!!!!! <3 Good timing too~ I was reading lots of IshiHime fan fics for days now. :B
_debbiechan_: WAHAHAHAHAHA_debbiechan_ on November 6th, 2010 12:23 pm (UTC)

Yay! That's great. Welcome to LJ and good luck in the contest. I bought some little Japanese snacks the other day to send out with packages to the winners. I always do that every year so I hope people are participating this year!
Alexa-chanalexaclyne on November 7th, 2010 03:29 am (UTC)

Ohh~ sounds awesome. :D I hope lots of people participate too!! SPREAD THE ISHIHIME LOVE!!! <3 <3
acaedes_dono: haaa<3<3<3 kuroshitsujiacaedes_dono on November 6th, 2010 07:46 pm (UTC)
Oh my, I've got the dates mixed up xD
my mental monologue this morning:
"Ahh...so sleepy...Wait! I wanted to participate in this contest! When was it again?"
"....Ishida's birthday probably....When was..."
"Oh sh**!"

Ok and when I finished my drawing and wanted to post it, I saw that there's still time xD
acaedes_dono: tousen kills shuuacaedes_dono on November 6th, 2010 07:56 pm (UTC)
I'm not really confident in it though....it was my first time drawing Orihime and she doesn't really look like her, kinda more mature with the new hair style and lip stick... but it worries me that their poses seem as if this kind of fanart was done before, but I can't really put my finger on it >.<

It' a threesome with ulqi btw....is that ok?

Gods, I wish I could see the other art beforehand to know whether I'm good enough or not

PS: Don't mind me, I'm sleepy
_debbiechan_: bitches love me by aubreywitch_debbiechan_ on November 6th, 2010 10:10 pm (UTC)

Oh Ulqui in the piece is fine--I can't wait to see it. XD
Kit-chanchiave_trust on November 16th, 2010 02:00 am (UTC)
I know it shouldn't be anywhere else, but can it be cross-posted (before the contest day) to my personal LJ, or only after I submit?
_debbiechan_: All Turn Out OK_debbiechan_ on November 16th, 2010 10:06 am (UTC)

Oh not the day BEFORE the contest. You shouldn't post it anywhere public until the day of submission.
pamianimepamianime on November 16th, 2010 11:53 pm (UTC)
Yush~! I joined for this XD haha! I'm very excited to join this and I have enough time to finish it by this friday XD so I'm good XD!

And so like...where am I suppose to post the pic on the submission day? Here in this thread? Or where?
_debbiechan_: smile_debbiechan_ on November 17th, 2010 12:21 am (UTC)

You make a post in a unique entry. Follow the instructions on the flier--post a separate entry with the subject heading that includes the title of the piece and its category (fanart or fanfic)
and tag the entry "IshiHime Birthday Contest."

I'm so glad you can enter! People are running behind, but I do hope they'll post IshiHime stuffs when they can if not in time for the contest.
Alexa-chanalexaclyne on November 19th, 2010 12:12 pm (UTC)
Feels its too late to ask.
I was wondering, are fan comics okay? I suddenly got an idea for a fan comic & I quickly drew it down. It's more than 10 pages long. ._.

Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. *huggles*
