Alrighty ya people!

It's time to do something to boost the activity around here! So why not an avi contest?

As soon as the Leap day costumes came out, I had a sparkling idea following up on some random role play at the City Hall. XD

Why not make a before and after avi contest? Not quite clear on what I have in mind? Allow me to explain:

RULES OF THE CONTEST:

1. There will be no antry fee required for this contest, anyone can enter.
2. Each contestant must make two avi: one froggy one and one after the frog has been kissed! Must use at least one Leap day item with both avatars.
3. You are allowed to use the Dream avatar maker, but I would really like it if you used your inventory and your imagination.
4. Post a short story related to your avatars: how a prince/princess stumbled upon a frog and how he or she ended up kissing it.

GENERAL RULES:

1. Be nice and respectful to each other.
2. Obey the Rules of Zantarni and ToS.
3. Have fun!

THE PRIZES:

Depending on interest, the prizes can be added to.

1st place: 1 gem
2nd place: 200k ZG
3rd place: 100k ZG

There might also be special prizes, such as Most creative, Best description and so on. Again, it depends on how many people enter. If the interest remains low, the contest will be canceled.

Happy Leap day everyone! Ribbit!

Once there was Elvish prince who thought very much of himself.He was also very rude to all.His staff at his palace where ones that felt his displeasure the most.Time after time he make them feel a shame to sever and others very uncomfortable to be in his presents.

One day the Prince was traveling to near by town.The prince thought so much of his self that he never want to be escorted.On the way to the town the prince thought if took lonely path throw the Lost Forest he get to the town much faster.Little he know of magic hind in this forest.

As prince enter the forest he come across two bridges and want other them.The next bridge was broken so the prince had to go around.Once around he seen something glowing on ground.Not know any better.He want over to it and pick it up without care for what might happen.He notice it look like a mushroom.As he look at it in hands it starting glowing diffident colors.

Then prince started feeling small pain in the pit of his stomach.Then clutching his stomach and dropping the mushroom he drops to forest floor.His hands and feet started changing and becoming orange.Before long he complete change into frog.He look upon his self from near by river near broken bridges.

"What has happen to me?"Said the prince.
"Oh, you two then?" a voice behind him.
The prince turn to the voice.There was another frog just blue with big red eyes.
"Well you seem shocked?" Said the blue frog.
"Yes I am why would fine prince like my self become such a....."The prince get cut off."A frog!?" yells the blue frog."Well yea? Sorry if I..."
"Don't apologize to me apologize to forest."said Blue.
"Apologize to the forest what did I do to the forest?"said prince in shock.
"Well you took something without asking that why you turn into a frog."explained the blue frog.
The prince thought about for few minutes.
"Wait, so you mean I had to ask to touch the mushroom that was glowing?"said the prince.
"Yes, did parents ever teach you that? Ask before taking if not yours?"said Blue.
The prince looking shock at blue frog."No, everything my parents owned why would never need to ask?" explained the prince.
Blue just shock his head and then hop a away.
Few days later......

When prince hop in front of him.
"Get out my way!" Yelled Blue.
"Why should I?!" Yell the prince back at him if was servant.
"I need to know if there way to be elf again?" The prince talking in normal voice again.The blue frog sighs."Well there is one way."He said."What is it?"Happily said the prince."You have be kissed by someone your true love."The prince looked shocked.This hole being prince and future king soon he never even thought of Ladies or even when he had to pick a queen.All this most done by his family so he'd keep mind on ruling and not love."Well then I guess am doom to frog forever."Lower his head disbelieving in should a miracles of ever happen to him.
The blue felt sad for him and then said."You know of the town near here?"
"What about it?"The prince said sadly.
"There princess you should go talk to her."The blue frog petting the prince on back."How can Elvish princess love me now am nothing but frog."Then with a loud thud the prince fell upon the forest floor upset with himself."Wow, for prince you got some low self a steam."Joke the blue frog."Come on I help you over there." Helping the prince up on frog legs again.The prince seem to have made a friend. He liked this frog even if though the a fairs of Elf maybe more then he may know.They both hop together on forest floor until they come upon a waterfall view in center of forest.This place was most beautiful place the prince had ever seen in life."Ok, the princess come here in afternoon so am sure get to see her today.She love coming here."said frog."You sure know alot about this princess of yours?"said prince."Yea, I hope so her and I are friends."blue frog said proudly."Friends?!"The prince confused as what he means by this."Yes, she come here and feeds us frogs all time."said blue frog happily.
Brushes afar behind them started making rustling sounds.Then a beautiful Elvish maiden appears wearing a long blue flowing dress and wearing a black mask that was making her eyes seem to glow bright blue.The prince was speechless.The blue frog slap him on back."Hey go talk to her already."
"You sure that her?"Prince seem embarrassed to say anything.
"Yes,why? You already like don't you?"The blue frog smiling happily to know this was going well.The maiden kneeing at edge started feeding the frogs in the pool of water that lad at bottom of waterfall.The prince mumbling to himself tiring to figure out what say to her.The blue frog slap the prince on back the head."What?!"Yelled the prince."Just go talk her not wasting time if want see if she truly your love then just go with flow.Geeh, are all you elves this stubborn?"So the prince hopped up to her right side.There she did see him at first.Then she noticed him when tried to move closer to her.

"She talking to me like am child oh boy."The prince tiring to get some courage to talk to her with straights face he could make using a frog face.Well, hello to you to princess it nice to me such beautiful elf woman like yourself."
She laughs."You not afraid to talk to me?"He said acting confused as why she laughing at him."I have been waiting for you.To come where post to visit me few days ago what happen to you?"The prince shocked."I was post to meet with you? Oh, your one I post to meet in town few days ago."Prince now remembering why he took forest path to begin with."You were post to meet me so get know one another better.Since are parents want us to be together for sake of are kingdoms.Has being a frog taught you anything?"
The prince look up at her."Yes it has.It has taught me to love everyday if was my last and show respect those around me.Like my dear blue frog friend here without I'd never would found you."

This two meet once before as children that where the prince notice he'd remember her form.When he grow older he starting falling in love with her this where is father thought to send him to her kingdom when he was much older.Knowing he learn something being in the forest she kissed him.The magic in mushroom wore off and new prince was born from it.One that learned to love life to fullest and to respect even the most smallest of creatures.

Once upon a time (several years ago), there lived a fair lady. She was trapped in the cold North by Fate and Heritage. The curse upon her was to shiver constantly... or at least until she found her Prince and he swept her away to warmer climes.

For several years she shivered and toiled at her computer in her gray, gray cubicle. Then one day, there suddenly appeared a ... frog. He came from an unknown place... a surreal place of sun and warmth and gentle breezes. She scarcely knew what to do with this strange frog that persisted in jumping back in to her cubicle each time she chased it out. "Oh, but for a kiss", he would say. "Oh, but you are the one true one for me", he would say.

Finally, the lady gave in to the frog (whom she truly found endearing, but really - who wants to admit that sort of thing? XD) and placed upon his head a kiss.

She was amazed at what happened shortly thereafter.

Before the kiss:


After the kiss:


... and they lived happily ever after.

The end. XD

Professor, I am not joining the contest, but thy contest inspired me to write this little story. . .I hope everyone enjoys it:




The Frog and the Maiden


One day while sitting on the banks of a pond, a young maiden chanced upon meeting a frog. She smiled as he hopped up to her and was surprised when the frog spoke.

"Young maiden, can you help me?" the frog said.

She smiled and giggled for she didn't know what else to do when a frog spoke, "What can I do to help, sir frog?"

The frog bowed, "I am in reality a prince and I have been enchanted by a sorceress. I cannot return home to my kingdom unless a young maiden kisses me. If you do, I will make you my Queen and we will rule together for the rest of our lives."

"But won't I get warts?" The young maiden said.

The frog chuckled, "You would only get warts if you kissed a toad, but as you see I am a frog."

She smiled and giggled, "Then I shall kiss you, my prince." The young maiden leaned over and closed her eyes as she kissed the frog, upon which the spell was broken.

The young maiden opened her eyes and was surprised to see the frog still sitting there. She looked to her hands and saw that she had been changed into a frog and she started to cry, "You lied to me, you are not a prince and now I, too, am a frog."

The frog moved to her side and placed his arm around her, "I did not lie to you young maiden, I am a prince, the Frog Prince of Ribbitania and because of you I can now return to my kingdom and if you will have me, I will make you my queen and we will rule together."

She looked into his eyes and saw the sincerity in them and kissed him again, "I would love to be your queen."

And they lived happily ever after. . . . . .ribbit. . . . . . .ribbit



The King and Queen of Ribbitania

I'll have a go at this for the Lilliebean <3
Been a bit busy and mia, but this seemed fun owo
I don't need any prize by the way. Just wanted to share this not so romantic prinses and the frog story.


-----
"But dad!" The prince shouted at the frog king. "I dun wanna be changed. I'm happy like this. Why can't I stay?!" The youth tried to pout, spilling half the content of his stuffed mouth.
"Son, just look at yourself. Have you done that lately?" The king jumped closer to his son who had shuffled awkwardly to the side. Trying to hide the cornucopia behind his big body. "I already saw it, boy. You can't fool me. We told you to stop eating so much. Look where it's got you now."
"I know, I know...I'll stop eating right now! I'll throw everything away and go on a diet. Just don't send me away. I dunno what to do out there." Referring to the human world with fear in his eyes.
"No, it's too late. You're already as big as a toad. You're a frog. A frog!" Emphasizing the last word with utter disbelief. "You're not one of those pockmarked and slimy creatures. You're one of the Salientia. Act like one." The regal shook his head with disappointment. "You'll find a place to belong in the human world. Go. Go and find yourself a human woman, who will kiss you. Maybe then you'll find your way to happiness, because this..." He gestured with his small limb to all the food around his spoiled son. "This is not the way to live."

The next day the young frog left the realm and for many years after searched for that one woman who would kiss him. At first, he had tried approaching women head on. Jumping at them and landing in their lap. But when the first ten or so attempts had almost gotten himself killed, he changed his strategy. He had watched the humans interact with each other and had concluded that it might not be as easy as he first thought it would be. Many female frogs wanted to bear his offspring at his father's court and he had always refused them. Wanting to wait for that one special lady, who would be his queen. To be honest, he wasn't really all that interested and seemingly immune to the female wiles at court. He had wondered at times about that, but then food was his main reason for living back then.
Days passed by and he had almost given up finding the woman who would change him into a human. His father had told him that he would become one of them after that magical kiss. He hadn't believed him. Still didn't but what could he do? He wasn't welcome at court anymore. Not looking like this anyways.
One day when he was jumping around in the big garden, which he had made his home. He heard a beautiful voice singing a song. It had entranced him. Lured him closer to it's source.
Long golden hair filled his view as he jumped from behind some bushes. He croaked and inched closer. A soft thud of a book falling to the ground preceded a terrified scream. Her scream. He winced, then lept into action as he saw her tumbling back into the well.

"Gotcha, now stop squirming and pull yourself up." The frog mumbled between tightly pressed lips. He was holding the woman up with her hair in his mouth and his weight on her lap, while she was scrambling to get a hold of the slippery surface of the cold stone.
"No, let me go you dirty toad!" She screamed. Not fully aware of the situation she was in.
"Well I could do that, but then you'd fall. Now stop moving so much and calm down. You're quite heavy you know." He backed up. Pulling and tugging on her hair. Using his own body as counterbalance.
When the young woman was safely sitting on the well, she composed herself and eyed the big frog for a long while. "W-Why is it that...that I can understand what you are saying?"
"I dunno..." He really didn't know why it was that she knew what he was saying. But his thoughts were lingering on his problem. His curse? His...secret. "Would you do something for me? Compensate the saving of your life with a kiss?"
"What? Why?"
She looked disgusted at him and his hope fell. "I have never been kissed before. Does it repulse you that much? I only ask this one thing and nothing more. Surely your life is not worth less than one kiss with a frog?"
"Of course not." She said without hesitation and bent forward to place a soft kiss on his lips.
Magic flowed, turning him into a handsome human man with eyes a pale green and orange flecks.

After receiving clothes from the woman, who was the youngest daughter of the current reigning king and queen, the frog prince returned home. Showing his father what had become of him. He stood there. Food in his hand and smiling smugly.
"Dad, you were right. Being a human has it's benefits." He said, then took another mouthful of food.
