You are different than other people. You have an amazing albeit slightly odd ability. And more than anything, you want to use that ability to fight evil. But no one believes in you. They think your skill isn't useful, so you've been rejected from all the main superhero groups. You've even been denied membership into the Superhero Union. But hope is on the horizon. You will have a chance to prove yourself to the feeblest superhero group on the planet – L.O.S.S. (Legion of Oddly Skilled Superheroes). Apply and excel in their probationary period and you can finally join a superhero group.

How it works: You'll be creating a less than super superhero by selecting an unusual power in your application. Then you will be asked to take pictures of your superhero performing tasks or re-enacting events. You will be judged on the how well you complete the task as well as the quality and creativity of your pictures. There is no prize other than glory for a superhero.

No Prize – superheroes aren't in it for riches.
Photo-shop isn't required. If you aren't going to photo-shop at all, you may want to think very hard about which ability to choose.
Adults only.
Male or Female.
Humans only.
Your superhero may have no other super ability than the one chosen in the application round.
Only 1 entry per person.
You will NOT be judged on how pretty your superhero is.
No extensions will be given.
Superheroes dropping from the contest will have their secret identities revealed and will be henceforth not so super.
You must enter your own sim, stealing is wrong and NOT a superhero trait.
There are no eliminations. Scores from each rounds will be averaged after the final round to determine the winner.

Prizes
There is no prize other than that warm, squishy feeling you get knowing you won. Embrace the warmth. Embrace the squish. It's all you get.

Scoring
Judges will be scoring via points by criteria posted each round. They will then rank each entry by score (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc). I'll add the ranks for everyone's positions for that round and post the resulting overall ranks. I'll also post each judge's top 3 and all judge comments (comments are required from all judges). After the final round, positions from each round will then be averaged to find the winner.

Why ranking instead of scoring? Because scoring is subject to a little flaw - if one judge uses a larger range of scores than another judge, their scoring has more of an impact. Thus one judge's opinion may override even 2 other judges by simply having a larger range in their scores than the other judges combined. By ranking, it levels the judging.

Each round end at 11:59 pm eastern standard time on the date posted.
Since there are no eliminations the next round will be posted the same day.

Ha! This contest sounds so awesome-- I'm in game right now, so I'll have my app up pretty soon ^^

Question-- does the uniform have to be very....superhero-y? Or just something that makes the sim stand out from the crowd?

Superhero Name: Catellia Flower
Power: Well, one day I decided to go play with my cat Cally at the local hotspot, the combined Park/Lake/Radioactive Waste Dumpsite. It's completely harmless, and all the purple three-eyed squirrels add to the town's enviromental diversity, the council say. Anyway, while I was playing Cat Tosser with Cally, my feet slipped and we both fell into this random puddle of green goo. My arse started really itching, so I decided to call it a day and head home to catch some sleep.

However, when I woke up the next morning, I found that I had grown a feline tail! It's pretty useless, but at least it matches my hair.

The Human Glowstick

Power: One day, I was burying my dead pet hamster, Sniffy, at the bottom of the garden. He was pretty useless really, I had only bought him a week ago and all he'd done was sniffle a bit then drop dead. Anyway, as I was digging, my spade hit something hard and rocky. To my surprise, it was a rock! I dug the rock out and put it to one side, throwing Sniffy's body in the hole and covering it back up. I was carrying the rock inside to examine it, when I dropped it on the patio and it split into two halves, exuberating a mysterious green aura. Again to my ultimate shock, it was no ordinary rock but a lump of pure uranium! I put it in a box and sold it on eBay.
That night, I was closing my bedroom curtains and readying myself for bed, when I noticed my skin was an odd green colour. It was also glowing, which was annoying, as I can't sleep if my room isn't dark. At first, I thought perhaps I'd died and become a ghost, due to my neglect of poor Sniffy. However, after thirty minutes of panicked frenzy, I finally came to terms with my gift and sought to put it to good use - to protect society, beat the baddies and save the day! To this day, I am renowned in raves all over the city as the Human Glow-Stick™ - the one who Saved the Rave.

Superhero Name: Phishstix
Power: About 3 months ago, I had fallen into a black hole of depression. I'd lost my job, my mother was ill, and my boyfriend had just dumped me. I was in my room alone, wondering if I even wanted to try and fix my life, when I heard a voice. I dont live with anyone, and I'm not a huge believer in ghosts. So I searched my whole home until I found it... in my fish tank! I'd never really liked the fish so much, they originally belonged to my now-ex-boyfriend, and I'm actually allergic to just about every type of marine life. I can talk to fish! No, seriously, its a supertalent! At first I tried to use my new powers for evil (ahem... attacking my ex and old boss...), but that didnt work out so well. So now I'm all about being the super-est super hero ever!

Superhero Name: 'The Freezer'

Power:
It was a hot night and I was, as always, hanging out in the dark alley behind 'Doodle's Sheep&Fish' restaurant. I sat there playing with a puddle of water when Doodle came out of the back door of the restaurant. He looked at me with anger and started yelling at me in an unknown language. I gently asked him why he yelled at me. He said he didn't like people in dark alleys, so he jumped on me and started slapping me with one of his fished. I decieded to bite him, and to my surprise, he became a little icemountain. I ran away and never decieded to go back again. That's how I became 'The Freezer'

I'm very happy to see people entering. Just a note, you only need to choose your power in your application, you don't have to tell us how you received it. I say that because that task is part of Round 1. So if you did say how you received your power in your application and you wish to change the story in Round 1 after I post it later today feel free. I just thought I'd post a warning.

Don't forget you need a picture to lock in a power as yours.

Speyerrr, thanks. I see you did post the beginning of your application. Yeah!! And what a great superhero name.

Gerbera, welcome. And yeah for nerdiness.

Zaggytiddies, I saw that there was nothing in the waiting list for other and I knew your contest and Jocus's contest were both ending. So I wrote and submitted this Wednesday. Did the graphics Thursday (submitted it with ugly placeholder graphics). I hope you enter!!

SilentPsycho, nice tail! I'll add her to the list and welcome!

Anne, I wasn't sure anyone would pick that power. Interesting and brave choice. Or maybe it seems brave as I'm so weird about putting things in my mouth. :D

Edited to add: I added several new powers to keep up with demand. :D

Speyerrr, your pictures are lovely and I'm still loving her name. But the pictures should have had plain backgrounds (as in a solid color). I could probably make do with the headshot but the full body shot on the plain background is needed in Round 3. So next time you get a chance to pop into your game if you could grab another shot of Phishstix it would help. Thanks.

ROUND 1 (Closes July 20 - Countdown Timer (http://www.MakeACountdown.com?id=300505))

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l266/pickpacket/Contest/SH/drink.jpg


Perhaps you've heard of Toasty Talia, the former member of L.O.S.S.? Toasty Talia had the ability to shoot piping hot pieces of toast from her right wrist. It was an amazing and surprisingly useful skill. She obtained the skill one morning while making toast. She was using a knife to get the toast from the toaster (not smart) when an electrical surge shot through the appliance, nearly electrocuting her and fusing the toaster with her wrist. Although she recovered from the shock, doctors were not able to surgically remove the entire toaster. And despite never putting any bread into it, she somehow obtained the strange ability to shoot whole pieces of toast from what remained of the toaster on her right wrist.

**Your Task**
Superheroes obtain their superpowers in a variety of ways. Some actively seek out a power, some are born with it, while others, like Toasty Talia, are created by a freak occurrence. The members of L.O.S.S. would like to know how you obtained your power. They would also like to know about how you are used your power in a less than useful way.

***
Title of your post should include your superhero name and power (just a couple of words to remind the judging panel of your skill)
Post 1 or 2 pics showing how you obtained your power.
Post 1 or 2 pics showing an early, disastrous or embarrassing instance of you using your power. Can be before you really had control over it or before you knew you had a power or you just trying to use your power and it doesn't work out like you planned.
***

Pics will be judged on how well they demonstrate the 2 events (10 points), creativity/originality (10 points) and overall quality (10 points). You may include text but you will not be graded on the text. However we will enjoy reading it.

If you told how you gained your power in your application, you are not bound by that. You may change your story as needed without any penalty.

Zaggytiddies, The Sick not only has an awesome name but I LOVE her expression in the first pic.

Thir13enth Ghost, your application is perfect. And that is one brave choice you made in picking your superpower. :mdance:

Gerbera, you can post your Round 1 pics anytime. I was planning on having applications open until the end of Round 1 but I hadn't expected as much as a response as I've gotten. And I'm glad you like Round 1. Personally Round 3 is my fav but it didn't make sense to put it first.

Okay, so I told you how I was looking for that voice. Well, I found it, in my newly-ex-boyfriend's favorite fishbowl- the one that always creeped me out. As I came closer to the bowl, the singular blue fish that inhabited it slowly rose until he was completely out of the water, looking me square in the eyes. He started to tell me about the new "power" he'd just granted me. Apparently he thought that now that I was single, I'd be lonely and need someone (or thing) to talk to. "Psh, dumb fish," I thought, as I slowly backed away. I didnt want it to come any closer to me, because i happen to be allergic to pretty much everything that comes from under the sea...
http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa255/superspeyer/NEWER.jpg
...I tried to forget about it, but everywhere I went, I felt like the fish were listening to me, following me...
http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa255/superspeyer/holycrap.jpg
...so then I just accepted it: I could talk to fish! Of course everyone would think I was crazy, but whatever. So after talking about my feelings with the rest of the fish my ex had left in my home, I knew what I had to do: get back at him, of course!
http://i197.photobucket.com/albums/aa255/superspeyer/firstuse-1.jpg
However, I'm not really sure how well that worked out. All I ended up doing was freaking him out majorly, so I went home and thought it out some more. Those were some mischevious fish, trying to make me use my powers for evil! Oh well, being evil had been fun while it lasted. Now, onto bigger and better things! I changed my whole outlook on the future, and my image: I was now Phishstix, the ULTIMATE FISH-SPEAK SUPERHERO!

I used to live near a nuclear power plant. I didn't think anything of it at the time. I just brushed off the fact that every now and again we'd smell something that I can only describe as battery acid. Except it really burned like you'd imagine battery acid would burn if you smelled it. You know, like how your sense of smell is connected with your sense of taste? Yeah it was kinda like putting your tongue on a 9 volt battery.... that zappy feeling... only with smell... ok, I'm getting off subject here...I had always smelled it ... it was just normal. So anyway... one day ... one vile cruel day... I'm eating my cereal and I bite into a cockroach... a radioactive cockroach. Besides being completely disgusted and never being able to eat cereal again, I didn't notice anything weird after I ate part of the roach. Then one day I was in a fight with this woman at the restaurant where I work. She was complaining, "Why haven't you sat me yet?... I can see available seating!" I tried to explain to the woman that there was a system we had to follow and that if we just sat everyone all willy nilly it would be complete chaos. I was growing increasingly angry during the conversation when she tried to brush past me to get to the table. I grabbed her arm and she immediately became sick and ran to the bathroom. She was so ill she and her family left! I cheered a silent victory and knew then that something was different about me.

http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e176/ooxlilyxoo/thesickroach.jpg


After a while I began to put adds in the paper for kids birthday parties... You know, like how some people would get a clown. People would hire me to make balloon animals, play pin the tail on the donkey, and give their kids chicken pox to, "Get it over with". My first gig was awful. There were three little boys there and I gave the one chicken pox, one typhoid fever, and the other dysentery!

"So you want to know the story of how I got my power do you?. It's a bit long so I'll shorten it as much as I can."

"I was sleeping on night when I heard a weird noise that woke me up, I was going to go back to sleep but there was a flash of light and suddenly I was in a strange location and standing before me was.... AN ALIEN. I was scared of course you hear such horror stories about alien abduction's but I never believed them. You're not going to probe me, are you? I asked her."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_93a3fc90_93a469e1.jpg

"Thankfully, she did'nt probe me.What do you want with me? I then asked, and then she told me a long story*yawn* about how she is from a non-violent race of aliens who use the power of dance to bring down their enemies and they had chosen me to recieve this power to try and bring some peace to Earth. Then before I could ask any questions there was another flash of light and I woke up in my bed." What a weird dream. I thought and went back to sleep, but as I was to find out later it was no dream."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_93a3fc90_13a46d88.jpg

"Later that day I went to friend's house. Everything was fine until my fave song came on the radio and I just had to dance to it, then everyone joined in."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_13464246_b3a47263.jpg

I thought nothing of it, but then I stopped and everyone kept going, and going, and going. They where all in terrible pain but couldn't stop, I was worried they would burst into flames like in that episode of Buffy. About three hours later they did'nt burst into flames but collapsed one after the other instead."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_13464246_33a473e0.jpg

"It was then I realised two things, one where the phrase 'Dance till you drop came from' and two my dream was real. Nowadays I only dance when I'm alone or in the company of someone I hate."

WOW that was alot of writing, I hope it wasn't too much and that everyone understands.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/klaar4.1.jpgIt was a regular day, I went to work, drove home and watched tv. I decieded to make my dinner and made my way to the fridge. When I opened the fridge I heard some weird voice:
"Don't leave me John! Please! Don't leave me!"
Oh wait, nevermind that was the tv. This was the voice I heard:
"Your life will change, from now on you will be known as 'The Freezer' just stan still for a minute, so I can give you your 'Oh so great' power of greatness. Here we go."
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/klaar5.jpgI Just stood there in horror waiting for some kind of cold energy to give me my power. And that's how I got it.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/klaar6.jpg
It was a hot night and I was, as always, hanging out in the dark alley behind 'Doodle's Sheep&Fish' restaurant. I sat there playing with a puddle of water when Doodle came out of the back door of the restaurant. He looked at me with anger and started yelling at me in an unknown language. I gently asked him why he yelled at me. He said he didn't like people in dark alleys, so he jumped on me and grabbed my head. I decieded to bite him, and to my surprise, he became a little icemountain. I only had one little problem. My head got stuck, so I had to wait the whole night for him to melt. Wait... does that mean I killed someone? Oh god...

---

Well, my story starts on a fine sunny day. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the local kids kids were happily playing in the streets...

...Ugh, I wanted to kill them!

You see, the night before I'd been out with a couple of friends of mine called Xian Li and Rai Li at our local watering hole, the Nightwolf, and I partook of a few alcoholic beverages. To put it plainly, I had got completely ratted, and was at that moment nursing a hangover so bad it would have had Apollo hiding under his covers! None of this was helped by the constant yowling of my pet irritation, Cally the Calico. Yes, I know the name is unoriginal, but I was a bit pressed for time when I named her. You see, there were these rather large and angry dogs...

Anyway, mindful that I maybe had negleted her yesterday when getting ready to go out, I decided to take her to her favourite spot, the local park, which also acts as the local fishing area, meeting point, and radioactive waste dump. Don't worry, the council have said that 'it's harmless, and that all the oddly coloured flowers and three-eyed purple squirrels are just pure coincidence, and don't they make the place look pretty!'

In any case, I fell out of bed, and still wearing the clothes I wore the night before, headed out with Cally. When we got there, I could see she was enjoying it, chasing after the butterflies and having sex with all the boy cats, the little slut. At one point, I was playing her favourite game - Cat Tosser - with her on the hill near the lake when I heard a shout from behind.

"You dirty little hussy!"

Suddenly I got a huge whack to the back of the head, and me and Cally went rolling down the slope before coming to a stop near the water, with my arse in this random pile of green slime.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_13a39b21_b3a55f85.jpg

Looking around, with my head ringing worse than before, I spied that miserable old bitch, Mrs Crumplebottom ranting at me from the top of the hill. Obviously, my crumpled and smokey attire was not up to her oh-so-prim-and-proper standard. Bitch.

Our lovely trip now ruined, me and Cally decided to head home. In any case, I had to wash this green stuff off my behind, and fairly soon because it was itching like hell.

When I got home, it was a case of take my clothes off, chuck it in the washing machine, have a shower, then head back to bed to sleep off the rest of my hangover, with my backside still itching like crazy.

Little did I know that I was in for one hell of a surprise...

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_13a39b21_d3a5591f.jpg

During my little cat-nap, I had grown a long cat-tail!

Typically, Cally slept straight through my screams, and once I calmed down, I started to think things through. For starters, this is going to make shopping for clothes a little more difficult. I'm serious! Maybe I should learn how to sew holes into all my trousers, because I can't wear skirts all the time, not if I don't want everyone from here to Picadilly to see my panties - Cunt-lebottom would probably have a fit...Hmm...

Anyway, the second thought was what am I going to do to explain this. It's not like it will be a walk in the park to hide a bloody great tail, you know! At this point I realised one simple fact. I could either be seen as a mutant - a freak, something to be shunned and despised - or I could be a Superhero! Everyone loves Superheroes...well except for the bad guys...

With this in mind, I headed off to the computer with confidence. I'm young, brave, resourceful, and I like helping others. I can do this!

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_13a39b21_d3a5656e.jpg

...I just need to remember to check my tail is out of the way before I shut any door.

After consulting with a superior brain, I've decided to close the applications when we reach 15 superheroes. This will make it more manageable for the judges and will still be enough to account for droppers. Not that anyone here is going to drop. :blink:

So that means there are 5 positions still open. Applications will close when we get the 5 or on the 20th, whichever comes first.

Also the 20th is when Round 1 ends. And Round 2 will be posted earlier that same day.

How I Got My Power:
I got my power two years ago, at the ripe 'ol age of 17. I just got my license and decided to go to the local fair "all by myself". Honestly, I thought I was friggin' cool. Purple hair, a car, funnel cakes, I was golden.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h280/Gwenn83/boltNEW1.jpg

As I was enjoying this newly-found freedom, I came across many sights such as the "snake woman", seven thousand pound pig, world's smallest pony, world's ugliest baby, exc. Though all of these were fairly interesting, one game that didn't cost nearly as much caught my attention: the dart throwing balloon challenge. Something about that green alien was so strange to me, I wanted it almost immediately no matter how much of my parents' hard earned money would be wasted. As I began to approach, colors began to dim and I felt a slight burning sensation in my eyes. I panicked. What the hell was happening to me? I glanced over to the stuffed alien hanging on the wall of the game area, it's eyes were no longer the dull black they had been previously but a sickening yellow that gave off a strange glow. I glanced frantically around to see if anyone else saw the chaos around them, people acted as normal, laughing, enjoying themselves, pigging out on food, you name it. Suddenly, right before all colors around me faded to a black and white, I felt a sudden shock that seemed to head straight to my mouth. I saw a stream of what appeared to be lightning from the stuffed alien's mouth to mine. I woke up in a hospital later than evening with only the scars I have on my face today...and the ability to stike myself with lightning of course.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h280/Gwenn83/boltround1pic2SMALL.jpg

Bad Moment With the Power:

The worst experience I've had with my power would probably have to be my date with Kurt Levinsohn. This happened exactly one year ago to the day, I was 18 years old. We went to high school together and I never cared to glance his way until closer to graduation, he began to do things to get my attention. For example, sappy love notes were strewn all over my locker, heart balloons were waiting for me at my usual desk during pre-calc, and single red roses would be given to me by "messengers".
It was our first date, we hit it off really well. We went to dinner at some playfully-themed cafe' and afterwards saw a movie. We came back to my newly-rented apartment and started kissing. When all of a sudden it happened...

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h280/Gwenn83/boltround1pic3.jpg

I don't know what had happened, but somehow I just lost it. I couldn't control my power. As I continually struck myself with lightning, I was hurting Kurt because he was lying so closely to me. This horrid incident continued for at least an hour and a half. I never saw Kurt again.

Scout, I have finally managed to update my application. I have not only given Splashgirl a proper mask, I also changed her haircolor because I just realized that she had the same hairdo and -color as the girl in your banner :lol:
So the way it is now is the final version.
I am working on my round one pictures now ...

Zaggytiddies, lol. Could there be a worse power?

Gerbera, nice. You even gave her a banner!

Just a reminder Round 1 ends Friday 11:59 eastern time. I'll send out PMs to everyone who doesn't have their entry by tonight. It's easy with a week per round to put it off and then forget. So a 48 hour warning might help.

I've added a Countdown Timer (http://www.MakeACountdown.com?id=300505) so you can watch the minutes go by. It's almost as interesting as watching paint dry.

How I got my super-power you want to know?! Ok, I'll tell you!

It was a usual schoolday, and I did my usual morning routine (walking out of my room like a zombie and trying to move around with eyes closed and without hurting myself).
The only thing that was different was the milk. I always liked drinking milk but this morning it had tasted really strange ... My mum said that it was just hormones, being a teenager and all, but I immediately had a weird feeling!

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_93abe221_d3abefc6.jpg

At school, I met my classmate Whitney at the lockers. She and her gang always bullied me around and I had always been too scared to do something against it.

Now, I just couldn't stay quiet anymore. Enough was enough. I got really angry and when I was just about to shout back at her, I melted! It was a strange sensation, and Whitney and the watching crowd were shocked!

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_33aa5091_d3aa6806.jpg

I am sure that was the milk ... They all thought I had fooled them with some trick and went to the classrooms. It took me almost until the end of the lesson to find back to my normal state, and got detention for not being in class :/

And now you still want to know more? An embarrassing situation?
I have one, including Whitney as well.
What I did not know before I got my super-power was, that she had super-powers as well. She could control the weather!

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_33aa5091_73aa609e.jpg

One day we were both fighting in our secret identities and I saw that her punch was too hard for me so I wanted to melt again. But she let it become very very cold and it started to snow.
I froze immediately.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_33aa5091_93aa6134.jpg

She just laughed at me and then ran away. How I hate that girl!
I had to stand there for more than one hour, that was the time it took for the temperatures to get back to normal.

How did I get my power? Well I guess it all started with me really. Some people are confined to their jobs; other’s their relationships…but me? I’m confined to myself. I am uncontrollably impatient. All my life I lived like this, not knowing what to do. That was when I heard about Doctor Ace. His name followed me like a shadow.

After a week of contemplating what to do, I decided. I would get help. Doctor Ace owned a research clinic for those with impatientitus (that’s when you are overly impatient.). I would get free treatment for being part of their research. This was an awesome deal!

Waiting in the doctor’s office just made me even more impatient!

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Round1c.jpg

When my number was called, 421, I slowly got up and entered his office.

“Doctor Ace?” I called out softly when I entered the empty office.

I was about to leave the office when I heard a strange sound. Turning around, I saw Doctor Ace. In his hand, he held a wand. I jumped back, startled.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Round1b.jpg

“What’s that?” I asked nervously.

Instead of explaining, or making eye contact with me for that matter, he spoke,

“Impatience will guide you, longing will too.
This power, how will you use?
To swap, will it be for better or worse?
How will it turn out? A gift? Or a curse?”

Before I could see anything else, I blacked out. I woke up in my apartment the next day thinking what happened was just a dream. Oh so little did I know...

***

My next story is basically when I first learned of my ability (it also made me realize that my dream was real). Another thing to add is that I do tend to daydream a little TOO much.

My story took place at my friends Sydney and Tom’s wedding. I was Sydney’s Maid of Honor. Seeing my friend get married to such a cute guy made me remember how lonely I was. And I was a bit angry as well. You see, Tom and I dated for a year before he and Sydney began to date.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Round1d.jpg

I don’t know if it was between the daydreaming of kissing my soul mate on our wedding date, or if it was missing Tom, maybe it was also a little bit of wanting to get back at Sydney. But one thing led to another and…

One night I heard this really annoying sound, because I couldn't sleep I went to check it. The shower hadn't been turned of so I did. But there must have been an electrical problem because I got a pretty big electrical shot! It hurt like he-- and when I woke up, I was the human sponge!

One of my favorite things in the whole wide world (well, before I became who I am now) I loved to go to the public pool and take a swim. I didn't think about my power when I got the urge to do it after my accident. But that little visit to the pool ended up in the hospital, because I accidentally drained the pool of water... Stupid I know...

The Human Glowstick - Round 1!

How did I get my super-power? It happened one fateful night some time in October, five long years ago. I'd bought a hamster called Sniffy, but the thing had keeled over and died within no less than a week. I won't be going back to that pet shop again! Anyway, I was burying the little thing down the bottom of my garden, next to the hedge. I was digging and digging to make a deep enough hole - I didn't want my dog to come along and dig it up - when suddenly my spade hit something in the ground!

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/snapshot_93a3c065_13a53bdc-1.jpg

I kept digging at whatever it was, but it wouldn't budge! Then I realised that it must be a rock of some sort. Rocks in my garden? I couldn't be doing with that! I managed to pull the thing out, and to my surprise, it was no ordinary rock but a huge lump of Uranium! I took it inside, polished it up and then put it up for sale on eBay. It didn't take too long to sell it - some mad scientist in Nevada was willing to pay $10 dollars for it.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/snapshot_93a3c065_f3a53d3c.jpg

Having sold my find and succesfully buried my hamster, I decided that it was time to head off to bed after a long and hard day. I changed into my pajamas, brushed my teeth and picked out a good book to read before I went to sleep. Before I settled down for bed, I reached up to close my curtains. That's when I noticed it. My skin was an eerie green colour! No, not just that - was it glowing?!

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/snapshot_93a3c065_73a540dc.jpg

At first, I assumed that I had died and was now a ghost, doomed to haunt the world forever. To test out this theory, I attempted walking through the wall. To my utmost relief (and also, discomfort), the wall remained as solid as ever. I tried to comprehend the facts and organise them in a logical order. I was glowing! I must have reacted with the Uranium. But how was I going to ever face the world now? I could never leave the house at night again! Whats more, I wouldn't be able to sleep for the persistent green light!

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/snapshot_93a3c065_73a54159-1.jpg

I was to spend my life doomed to insomnia. I would never be able to get a girlfriend, how would they react to seeing me lit up like a christmas tree? How could anyone come to terms with such a thing? It was then that an idea struck me. I would live a double life! By day - Benjamin Richards. By night - The Human Glowstick! Unfortunately, the following week I was fired from my job after not getting a wink of sleep. But now I have my new superpower, nothing can stop me!

ROUND 2 (Closes July 27 - Countdown Timer (http://www.MakeACountdown.com?id=300938) )

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l266/pickpacket/Contest/SH/kiten.jpg



Holy catnip – kittens need your help!!! Whether from their own curiosity, evil gangs of kitten haters or the rising popularity of kitten fur coats - kittens are in danger. You must go out and find a kitten in a dangerous situation and use your superpower to save it. And remember, everytime you save a kitten, evil sheds a tear.

**Your Task**
You can put the kitten in any danger you want (you do not need to show the kitten if you are creative). You must in some way use your super power during the rescue.

***
2 or 3 pics of you saving the kitten. The pictures do not all need to be of the actual saving – you can have just a pic of the kitten in danger or perhaps the celebration after the rescue. But at least 1 pic must have you using your super power to save the kitten.
***

Pics will be judged on how well they demonstrate the event (10 points), creative use of your skill in the rescue (10 points) and overall quality (10 points). Once again, you may include text but you will not be graded on the text. But sometimes text can make the actions in the pictures clearer so you should consider at least including brief captions.

When I was a kid, I always had tonsillitis and when I became a teen, mom insisted that I got my throat checked, because it wasn’t normal to get tonsils 3 times a year at such an old age and blah,blah,blah but I refused. Why should I’ve done something about it? I got to stay home from school and to me, that’s well worth having ruined tonsil for. But of course, I had to do what SHE wanted. She’s such a super control-freak, she should join L.O.S.S. with the power of super-impudence.
So anyway, she kidnapped me when I came home from school one day and drove me to the hospital just so the doctors could be all “ZOMG, those are huge, why didn’t you come earlier?” and throw me into the surgery room.
They let me home the same day and told me that I shouldn’t eat anything solid for the next week or so. Who listens to doctors?
Later that night, when my parents were finally asleep, I went to the fridge and made my self a garlic-tomato-cheese-salami sandwich. It’s usually delicious but not today because it got spoiled by a horrible pain in my throat.
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/ewATING.jpg
I guess I should’ve listened to them doctors after all.
From that day on, I constantly had bad breath, and it only got worse. It got so bad that I killed a rat just by breathing in its direction. I thought that it was time to visit the doctors again.
The doctors examined my throat and guess what they found? The garlic from my garlic-tomato-cheese-salami sandwich, stuck where my tonsils used to be and it was beginning to rot. They would’ve rushed me to surgery if the garlic hadn’t grown into my throat and my windpipe, and since it didn’t hurt me, and mostly because we didn’t have enough money they decided to leave it be.

Embarrassing incidence

About half a year after I got the garlic stuck in me, I went out to eat with some of my friends. I had long since figured that drinking pepper-spray eliminated my bad breath for about a day so that wasn’t a problem. Usually.
We ordered a pizza with something and garlic, and of course we got us some soda too. At some point I had to burp, and I’m not one to stop my bodily functions so I let it go. Apparently eating garlic gives me back my bad breaths because the next thing I know, all the people had either fainted or were about too.

The source of my superior sense of smell is actually fairly recent.

My girlfriend, Terri, was moving away...but wanted me to keep her adorable, glowing rabbit for her-- it was one of her fondest failed experiments, and she said it always had reminded her of me. I'm assuming that was a compliment, of course. Anyway, me and her bunny Bo soon became best buds after Terri moved to Ohio or somewhere.

Bo's a real cutie, actually...he's just a bit on the aggressive side. His displays of affection tend to be in the form of painfully vicious bites; if he really likes you, he'll lick away the blood, too. With me, though, he's very gentle--- except for this one time where Bo had latched onto my nose after I tried to give him a bath. I had to call in the neighbors to take him off me.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/TNN_r1_1.jpg

My superpower started to kick in the next day. Suddenly, I could tell how long I had my pajamas just by the way they smelled, and I could tell what everyone on our street was having for breakfast. It was pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.

When I began my first ever job as a gossip columnist, I realized I could use my nose to help 'smell out' juicy news. In fact, once I actually found out that the mayor's wife was sleeping with the mayor's secretary! Yeah, I know-- wow, who would've guessed?! It was prettty simple, you see-- the mayor's wife had always smelled like the beach, since she and her husband...er, ex-husband...lived near there...and the secretary always smelled like a fresh grass and flowers-- she worked part-time as a gardener.
Thanks to my nose, I was able to put two and two together and publish the most interesting piece of gossip since the Oatmeal Incident of '92.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/TNN_r1_2.jpg

Unfortunately, the newspaper I worked for had to end up firing me (or risk being sued by the mayor himself) and since most of the town hated me after that, I had to move back in with my dear ol' Momma to get rid of all those strange people that kept trying to burn down my house. I pretty much learned my lesson after that-- I should only use my powers to help others. So far, the only things I've been able to save are my mom's grilled sandwiches before they get all black and crusty...but I'm sure there's something bigger in store for me and my nose in the future.

Sizza, glad you got your entry in. I noticed I messed up your pic (forgot to change the background color on the text part to match the pic part). I've redone it and posted it on the first page.

DontDieKThx, your superpower could be perfect timing. Glad to see you make it also. I didn't want to lose anyone, but especially someone with bunny slippers.

All the entries are great. I'm so glad I don't have to judge. I've pmed all the judges (assumming that the multiple pm's with ; thing works).

Sizza, just remember you get to pick the situation the kitten is in. So obviously a kitten stuck up a tree won't work for everyone. But you can think of how you could use your power then make a situation that fits.

My fav power was the one to make flies burst into flames. But sadly no one chose it.

Sometimes, fighting crime is a matter of using your brain rather than your brawn. A case in point is the recent Kitten Rescue I performed, with an unusual and not unwelcome result.

It all started one day as I sat at my PC trying to find news of any crimes I could help foil. My search wasn't going so well, so I decided to take a break and looked out the window and watched Cally play with a bunch of four kittens who had wandered into my garden. It was all so sweet, and as these were only kittens, I didn't have to worry about mad-hot, sweaty cat-sex keeping me up all night.

Suddenly, I caught a glipse of movement in the trees just beyond where the kittens were playing.


http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_13a39b21_b3ae9127.jpg

From behind the pines came one of the largest guys I have ever seen. He reminded me a bit of Arnold Schwartzasimmer, and judging by the way he cracked his knuckles and the look on his face, he was here for no tea party. What was I to do, he looked too large for my tail to properly trap him until I could get his head in a headlock.

Then it hit me.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_13a39b21_73ae94eb.jpg

A widely known fact about kittens is that they are curious little buggers. Another fact about them is that anything that dangles and sways attracts them and their claws like flies, much to the male gender's discomfort. As the man started to pounce, one wave of my lovely tail and all the kittens immediately gave chase, narrowly missed being caught by the bastard, who in his surprise at their sudden movement overbalanced and did a glorious faceplant into the ground. Unfortunately, by the time I had lead the kittens to a safe place inside my house, he had run off. Shrugging, I headed back into the house and had a closer look at the little fluffballs.

Was I in for a surprise though!

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_7372f3c8_d3ae6da4.jpg

It turns out the cute little rascals belong to none other than Robert De Lores, one of the richest businessmen in town, and incidentially the boss of my two close friends Rai Li O'Murphey and Xian Li Chang. One thing they always mention is his devotion to his cats, and I can see why. As soon as I turned up on his mansion doorstep, I could see his delight at the finding of the kittens, and as I told the story, his anger at the one who dared to try and harm a single hair on their heads.

He promised me that he and his friends will stop at nothing until the one behind this intended attack is found. For some reason, he was a little evasive about what would happen then, but instead tried to give me a cash reward for saving his darlings. No matter the amount he offered though, I turned it down. Superheroes do not help for profit.

At this point, De Lores came up with something that trapped me. He said that he had been looking for loving new homes for the kittens, and so far had found homes for three of the four kittens. As he knew he could trust me to be loving and caring, with a soft spot for cute fuzzies, would I mind taking the last one?

And thus I became the owner of a silver kitten named Moonlight. Hey, at least it's a better name than Cally the Calico!

The Nasal Nuisance
Pictures: 10/10
Creativity: 8/10
Overall quality: 9/10
Comments: Fantastic pictures, and I love the radioactive rabbit! It's...incredibly weird. The story was well written as well...the only thing I would change is the fact that being bitten on the nose by a mutant bunny is a tenuous connection to smelling. Maybe a mutant dog would have been more appropriate?

Catellia Flower
Pictures: 7/10
Creativity: 9/10
Overall quality: 8/10
Comments: Your story had me tearing up, I was laughing so hard...but you might want to watch the language a bit (or bleep it out since Catellia seems to be a cussing kind of gal). Your pictures were a bit plain. Try focusing in on the sim a little more. On the other hand, the last pic made me giggle. Her expression is purrfect! (sorry.)

Splashgirl
Pictures: 9/10
Creativity: 8/10
Overall quality: 8/10
Comments: First off, you have some excellent pictures. I love the one of Splashgirl melting, it's really well done...the third picture seemed a bit unnessecary, however. I like how you incorporated Whitney into Splashgirl's super-life. She's got a nemesis already!

Phishstix
Pictures: 7/10
Creativity: 8/10
Overall quality: 8/10
Comments: First off, let me say I love Phishstix's attitude. She's quite positive! I also like how she uses her superpowers the way we all would-to get back at her boyfriend. I would have liked to see her dislike of fishes come into play a bit more, and maybe you could ease up on the photoshop a little in your pictures. I know it's nessecary for the fish, but whenever possible, it's best to avoid photoshopping sims in.

The Sick
Pictures: 9/10
Creativity: 8/10
Overall quality: 9/10
Comments: Eugh, how horrible, eating a cockroach! All horrors aside, though, your entry was very good. I definately laughed at the pose the dysentery boy was doing...I would love to see more pictures from you next time, and the second pic would have been great if it were a bit larger. But other than that, a very solid entry!

The Delicious Dancer
Pictures: 6/10
Creativity: 7/10
Overall quality: 7/10
Comments: Watch the plumbob! Very important stuff! Another picture tip: Try either decorating the walls or zooming in on the sims. Some of your pictures (the first and last) look kind of empty. On the other hand, your story was fine, and I like The Dancer's personality. She seems very concientious. And I definately enjoyed her expression in the last picture.

The Freezer
Pictures: 10/10
Creativity: 7/10
Overall quality: 9/10
Comments: Your pictures were excellent, and I love the freezing effect. I also think that The Freezer has a great voice, but your story was a little bet rushed, and while the pictures made up for it, maybe next time you could develop your storyline a little more.

Bolt O' Lovely
Pictures: 10/10
Creativity: 8/10
Overall quality: 9/10
Comments: Very impressive pictures! You're very good at creating a mood. Your story is the first one where I feel really sorry for the superhero-that's pretty good! On the other hand, your origin is a bit odd...

The Human Glowstick
Pictures: 9/10
Creativity: 9/10
Overall quality: 9/10
Comments: Your storyline was pretty good. He sold uranium for ten dollars?! The Glowstick has a great voice, cheerful and kind of dumb, and that was a real strong point. I also thought your pictures were above average, but in the last one, his hand is going through the curtains.

The Odor Omittor
Pictures: 8/10
Creativity: 9/10
Overall quality: 9/10
Comments: Your origin story was creative and original, and The Odor Omittor has a great way of telling things. I definately laughed at the part about pepper spray-talk about going to extreme measures! Your last picture was kind of empty-try zooming in on the sims more, or grouping them a bit more tightly.

Comments: Your pictures are kind of blurry, with a fair ammount of extra space in them. On the other hand, your story is funny and original, and the Swapper has a personality that's well suited to her power. Maybe next round you could up the graphics settings a little, and focus in on your sims a bit more.

Comments: Compared to the other entries, there really wasn't much to yours, unfortunately. I wish you'd written a bit more, or included more pictures, because it seemed a bit unfinished. Your pictures were clear and creative, but try to focus in on your sim a little more.

Your pictures are very good, though I would have liked to have seen a bit more for how you got your power-You have the picture of the girlfriend partially covering the picture of you, so it seems like maybe the gf had a lot more to do with it. Would have like to have seen the rabbit bite him on the nose or something of the sort. Also, the second task was to show an embarrassing or disastrous moment, while what you have is a moment of success.

Your pictures do very well to explain your getting your power. And ewww! I would hate living next to that place. For the last task though, you were to be showing an embarrassing moment of you USING your power. Would have like to have seen her accidentally tripping someone with it, hanging from it or something where she’s actually USING the power or it’s causing her embarrassing situations. I think there’s a lot you can do with having a tail

Your pictures along with your text explains very well what happened to give you your power, but just looking at your pictures was a little tough to really be able to guess what’s going on. Some possible suggestions that might add to your current pictures would be to use the in-game green stinking cloud for when things get rotten or you have BO. Perhaps that would have suggested that there was something with the sandwich that gave her her power. For the second picture, I would have liked to have seen something similar. Perhaps she could have been sitting at the table with friends, eating pizza (same green stink being emitted) and a few of them may have zonked out right there at the table. What you have right now may be taken as she walked into a restaurant to get pizza and everyone was asleep. Though we aren’t judging you on your text, I have to say, your story is very creative! Poor girl, I couldn’t imagine how she’d be able to have any kind of a romantic relationship with anyone and keep them. Nice job!

For the first task, I would have liked to have seen a little more to suggest what was happening. Perhaps what you have as the second picture could have been your first picture and you could have added something else as a second one to show that something had taken place in the office- give her some kind of pose or reaction which would suggest the doctor had done SOMETHING to change her. Your second set of pictures- yes, I definitely DO get the picture . Good job at displaying her ability, but this task was to be an embarrassing or failed attempt at use. Though she hadn’t realized what would happen when she began to daydream, maybe you could have included the first and second pictures together in one picture (like a split screen type of thing) and then added a second to show she was rather humiliated or something. Your current pictures would have been fine if perhaps you had added something such as “Talk about embarrassing” or something to the end of your story.

I love her “blueness”- very fitting! My first reaction to your first picture, was where did the electricity come from? That’s a technicality, really, but a suggestion would have been for there to have been something she had left plugged in that the water was dripping on and when she picked it up, it shocked her. Just a small minor detail, nothing really huge. I loved her pose/expression though, and the bit of electricity you added. Nice touch! The second picture, I would have liked to have seen something like others being there at the pool with her and her having absorbed all the water out of the pool. With this, you could have had them gasping at what had happened, giving her weird looks, etc. In return, she could look embarrassed and uncomfortable at them gawking at her. This task was to be an embarrassing moment that occurred due to your power and your picture shows her appearing happy. You did well though, for having been your first time in a contest! Keep up the good work!

JUDGE 4

Freezer 1st. Love the moral dilemma over if she had killed someone with her power.

Bolt O'Lovely 2nd. Lost love because of power = another great dramatic moment.

Delicious Dancer 3rd. Sort of the Green Lantern of Dance. Tweaks a known origin story and learns responsibility through her power.

Splashgirl 4th. Origin story is somewhat underdeveloped but has potential. Comes with own supervillian archrival but might have scored higher had her actions led to the supervillian's origin.

The Human Glowstick 5th. Origin object kinda blah but reason for finding it boosts origin story a bit. Like the mixed blessing ending and pondering the consequences of his newfound powers. But story still could have used more.

The Odor Omitter 6th. Very creative origin story but not enough comes out of the power in this round.

Phishstix 7th. Photo illustration of story points is solid but otherwise little impressive story-wise. Minor flirtation with using power for "evil" a plus though more mischief than true evil.

The Nasal Nuisance 8th. Would like to know more about the rabbit's glow but otherwise pretty standard.

Catellia Flower 9th. Good use of pictures but attitude was off-putting.

The Super Swapper 10th. Seems like she comes by the power too easily. Swap with bride-friend is an amusing moment. But more character development would have been nice.

The Sick - 11th. Similar reasoning to Super Swapper although strength was footnoting the additional diseases.

The Human Sponge 12th. Not much here to work with. Feels rushed and doesn't give the heroic sense higher candidates do.

Wow I just absolutely enjoyed looking at your pictures! Every single one of them were perfect, no flaws at all! Kudos to you!

1.Bolt 'O Lovely
30/30
I loved all the lightening and events occurring in your pictures. The first picture was my favorite, I enjoyed looking at all the little carnival things, but as I said to another contestant you may not want so much going on in the background, because it will take the attention off of Bolt.

3.The Sick
28/30
Your pictures are absolutely great, everything is shown and placed so perfectly. The picture with all the kids just made me laugh, because it all looks like they’ve come down with something. Her outfit is also super creative (It looks like she’s a giant roach)

3.The Human Sponge
28/30
I loved the quality in your pictures and how great everything looked, but I would to have liked to see what it was like when she first discovered her power.

5.The Human Glowstick
26/30
Over all your entry was great. Everything made sence to me, just by looking at the pictures. But one thing you might want to do is add a little more creativity to the pictures, something that would catch somebody’s eye.

6.Splashgirl
25/30
The pictures showed everything so clearly and well. I didn’t even have to read the text to understand what was going on. But just a word of advice never take two pictures in the same area, and when your going to take pictures make sure that you don’t catch stuff in the pictures that show your on a residential lot (mailboxes, garbage cans, other houses) unless it is part of your pictures.

7.Catellia Flower
23/30
Your pictures demonstrated the events well and I enjoyed looking at them. Something you may want to do in further rounds is not to have so many things in the background, it takes the focus off of Catellia and puts the focus on the things going on in the background.

8.The Delicious Dancer
22/30
Well everything was so creative upon how it happened, but there was one thing in one of your picture that was a major flaw. When your taking a picture make sure all the Plumb Bob’s are turned off (this eliminates the chance of catching one in your pictures) you can simply do this by doing the cheat Plumbbobtoggle on.

9.The Nasal Nuisance
21/30
I really liked your pictures, they were creative. But the one problem was is, the first picture didn’t really show how he obtained the power, those who don’t speak English might be confused in that area. Perhaps you should have showed the bunny latched onto his nose, it would’ve helped clarify things just a little bit.

10.Phishstix
20/30
Your pictures are great and super creative, but in the picture where the fish are attacking her ex boyfriend you can tell that she was just photoshopped into the picture. Next time you might want to try and actually get her standing where ever it is, because people want to see things that look 3-D and not 2-D. (the last picture is my favorite)

11.The Odor Omitter
18/30
By looking at your pictures I was a bit confused, upon what her power really was. The only way I was able to tell was by looking at her name. Just add a tad bit more creativity to your pictures, it would help your scores a lot!

12.The Super Swapper
16/30
I was a bit confused by your pictures what exactly was going on. A person who didn’t speak English wouldn’t be able to tell how she obtained the powers…The idea was really cute and I loved it, but you may want to work on the quality of your pictures (try and sharpen them a bit, because they are super blury)

It was on a weekend. A good friend of mine had just told me, that her kitten was lost and how sad she was about that. She could not search for it herself because her mum had put her under arrest for misbehaving ...
However, I decided that I had to help her and so I went to a park close to our homes.
It wasn't before long, that I saw the little guy, Leo's his name.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_f366fe6a_53af9d4e.jpg

Isn't he cute?! I wanted to walk over to pick him up when suddenly this evil looking man jumped out of a car and grabbed him.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_f366fe6a_b3afa008.jpg

As I was not in my superhero disguise that time (and ... uhm ... because this bloke was really evil looking), I decided to not confront him directly.
Instead, I transformed myself into a puddle of oil on the street.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_f366fe6a_93af8b0b.jpg

When he saw the puddle, he had to break hard and his car hit the nearest hydrant. Leo seized his chance and jumped out of the car. I quickly transformed back, took him and returned him safely to his real owner - not without telling the police what that bad man had done. It turned out that he was catching kittens all over town to use them as test objects!
I was soooo happy that I helped to stop this!

Gerbera, nice job using your power!!! You saved a kitten from horrible experimentation. And the use of picture-in-picture ads a nice comic book feeling.

Zaggytiddies, 3 pics is the max. I wanted to keep it close picture wise because if someone were to do 2 and someone else 5 that person with 5 has a huge advantage even though the 2 picture person followed the rules. Hope that makes sense.

After a whole night of trying to find criminals to defeat or someone to save (but either not finding anyone or being kicked out of the way by more famous and more commonly talented super-heroes) I was glad to come home and relax (or rather to sulk over my failure). But I didn’t get a long rest, because my next-next-next door neighbor called me. Her beloved kitten Schnoogums had gotten himself stuck up in a tree and she wanted me to help. But unfortunately I was preoccupied, I told her but I’d send my friend to help. This is a job for THE ODOR OMITTER!
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/call.jpg
Arriving at the house, I saw why this was a problem. That stupid cat had managed to climb up 5 meter tall tree. By using my not-so-superb climbing skill (Why, oh why did I pick an outfit with high heels? What was I thinking?), I managed to get to where Schnoogums was. Seems like the little bugger is bit psycho because as soon as he saw me he scratched and bit me half to death, and made me fall down that blasted tree, all 5 meters of it!
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/SCRATCH2.jpg
Then it occurred to me that I should be useing my super-bad breath to get Schnoogums down! The plan was simple. I climbed up again (without those shoes, thank you very much!), breathed at the kitten, caused it to faint, so it would land on a mattress on the ground.
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/3-1.jpg
Needless to say, the plan worked and Schnoogums was save. And the Odor Omitter made it to the 10 o’clock news (not that anyone watches them, but hey. That's something, right?).

Here's my entry, it's very basic and not very original but at least there are no plumbob's this time :)

"Ok, so the other day I was sitting at home bored as usual when I hear a strange growling sound. I go outside I see this dog barking at a poor defenceless little kitten."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_93a3fc90_93b13c93.jpg

"I thought the dog might eat the poor thing. So I slipped on my mask (which I always carry on me in case of emergencies) and did the only thing I could do, dance. I'd never tried my power on animals before but I figured if I did'nt work maybe I could distract it long enough for the kitten run away."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_93a3fc90_93b13ec0.jpg

"After some very scary and intimedating moves the dog ran away I think more from confusion than fear but it left regardless of why. I then lifted the kitten to make sure it was alright. I knew I really should have asked around to see if anyone had lost a kitten but the moment I looked at it's cute little face I fell in love."

The Human Glowstick saves a kitten!

Little over a fortnight after I recieved my new.. er.. talent, I finally had opportunity to put the power to good use! As I mentioned, my two weeks of insomnia did not go down well with the boss - especially when I fell asleep on the job. Unemployed and feeling down, I was wandering the streets and debating whether my life held a purpose, when I heard a girls scream! A damsel in distress, in need of rescue! Well, it wasn't quite a scream. More of a bellow of rage.. It didn't take long for me to find the distressed damsel herself; a girl of about 11, throwing a tantrum outside her house. Approaching her, I asked "What's wrong?"

"My b***h of a sister just flushed my new baby kitten down the toilet!" she shrieked back at me, arms waving.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/toilet-2.jpg (http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/cat-toilet-1.jpg)

It was then I realised my duty in life. It hit me like some holy revelation - I was to save this girls kitten from a stenchy, watery fate! Quick as a flash, I headed over to the nearest manhole, wrenched the cover off and began my descent down into the dark, damp underword - the sewers. Of course, it was only half way down the tunnel when I remembered that I was claustrophobic. Thank goodness for my talent - I was also scared of the dark, but didn't have that to worry about.

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/tunnel-2.jpg (http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/down-sewers-1.jpg)

The sewers stunk worse than a suit of armour after the hundred-year war. But I braved the gagging stench - I was on a mission to save a kitten, and I was not going to give up! Well, that was until I reached the bottom of the rusty ladder and spotted all of them, everywhere I looked: Rats. I couldn't look, they made me gag much more than the stench! That little kitten was having a whale of a time messing around with them, bless him. But how was I going to get to him now?!

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/normal-1-1.jpg (http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/normal-2.jpg)

Thankfully, I managed to lure the kitten away with a cunning bowl of milk (I'd brought it with me, in case of an emergency). Snatching the little devil up, I climbed back up the ladder and returned home for tea and medals! Only, when I did get back, the little girl decided that the kitten now reeked, and she wouldn't dare let something that foul-scented into her house. So, I took the kitten home and sold him to that professor who bought my uranium. Apparently, it was just what the Professor was looking for...

Sizza, a classic dangerous situation and a clever use of your power. That is quite an outfit that she wears. Really makes her stick out in a wonderful way.

Thir13enth Ghost, awwww Foxy is adorable. It's always good to improve. Imho, sims picture taking is harder than real life picture taking because you need not only all the composition knowledge, but to know which cheats and hacks can help.

Haylifer, what does that professor want with uranium and a kitten? I probably don't want to know.

Thir13enth Ghost While points were not deducted b/c of the plumbbob (at least I didn't deduct any for that reason), I'm glad to see no plumbbob this time around! Like Scout said, it's always good to know what hacks/cheats are useful in taking pics of your stubborn sims (and I say stubborn b/c they love to move around even though you've stripped them of their free will...*grumbles*)!

Everyone's entries are looking great so far. I just love reading the stories and descriptions.

THE HUMAN SPONGE TO THE RESCUE

It was a wonderful day at the beach, where I was enjoying the sun and the childrens laughter. I was noticing that I was absorbing too much sunscreen, so I went to get some more when I heard screams! I ran back and saw something splashing in the water.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/19.png

"It's a shaaaark!" one man screamed as he struggled to get out of the water. "Man, don't be such a cry baby!" his, what I assumed was his girlfriend said and helped him on land.

I only saw a glimpse of something big, absolutely a fish like thing.
"Mummy! it took tinkerbell!" I looked around and saw an upset girl hugging her mother, oh my, the fishy-thingie had taken the girls kittie!

The Human Sponge to the rescue!

I held my breath as long as I could, and when I finally came upon what I was looking for, I choked on water. Because it was not a fish that was the kittie-napper. But a water demon.

"ha ha ha" I heard in my head.
"Now the kittie is mine! It is my little pet now! Go away or I will send my squid on you"

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/18.png

The kittie seemed fine, playing with the fish. But I snatched the kittie infront of his very nose and began my magic on draining the bay of water.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/20.png

As I absorbed the water the water demon was helpless on land (where the mother fished him up, and the black haired girl had gotten tired of her boyfriend more then welcomed took care of the demon.) The girl got her kittie back, and too cheer both the kittie and the girl up, I took them up. Into the air!

SObored, wow. I love the underwater picture. Usually water shots don't look very realistic but you've done a great job.

Anne, you've still got time. Sometimes its easier to think about how you can use your skill then work backwards into thinking how that very use could save a kitten. I know you can do it.

((I so ruined this :( Everything was working against me, my stupid videocard, my game, my head and even photoshop))


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/3-1.jpg

Right, let's begin at the beginning. I found a new hobby. You know? Since my last hobby didn't really turn out well. My new hobby is climbing. And I love it! So I was climbing a little when my eye caught this really fat cat. And it looked like it was calling for help. I didn't know what to do since I couldn't go up there, I mean, I like climbing, but not that high. Then I remembered that I had powers! Yay for powers! So I opened my mouth and bit the mountain and it was sooo gross. Seriously, the sand's still not fully out of my mouth. Really... it was dirty. Oh, right, let's get to the point. Since it was nice and warm outside the ice started melting, creating a huge waterslide. Or something like that. So, the cat started sliding down the mountain.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/2-1.jpg

When it was down here, I saw it was this huge, fat kitten. I picked him up and he was all wet, the poor thing, I wonder what his owners did to him. So, I saved the day! Or well... the kitten.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/1-1.jpg

I wonder if there was anyone else up there climbing... oh god...

Oh, and if it makes you feel better, my game had lots of problems as well. I couldn't load the lot with the actual Sim for this contest so I had to use another one, and the makeover-option didn't work properly so she looks quite different :lol:

I was going out for a brisk walk when I was stopped suddenly by a young girl. With tears glistening in her eyes she pleaded with me, "Please help me! My kitten jumped into the tree and than hopped onto that building! I tried to get my kitten but there was no way to get onto the roof!"

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Super-Round-2a.jpg

I heard the soft meow drift down from the three story building. I did the first thing that came to mind. I concentrated.

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Super-Round-2b.jpg

I instantly swapped places with the kitten. "Thank you so much!" The girl shouted up to me. I saved the day!

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Super-Round-2c.jpg

After doing a small celebratory dance, I stopped. Anxiety reached over me, how would I get down. I couldn't swap places with anyone cause then they would be stuck up here. Worry surrounded me, I, The Super Swapper, was stuck on the roof.

I love reading these entries. Everyone is so creative. I had imagined saving a kitten with each power (to make sure it was doable) before I posted them and everyone has posted ideas I hadn't thought of.

I'll be posting Round 3 either tonight or tomorrow morning even though you have till late tomorrow to get in Round 2 entries.

Anne, eeek I hate technical problems. I hope your video card was just suffering a temporary breakdown. Still, you managed to creatively save the kitten so you're a hero. :D

**Your Task**
Find your name in the left column in the list. Your partner, who you will use in this round, is the one in parenthesis. You do not need to download your partner. Simply create someone similar in your game. You will NOT be judged on the accuracy of your recreation of them. Alternatively, you can photo-shop them in from their application picture. But again, no extra points for it really looking like them and frankly that’s just more work than creating someone similar imho. And please do not kill your partner in your story/pics. It would be wrong. Perhaps funny, but still wrong.

***
Title of your post should include your superhero name and your partner's name in parenthesis
You will need 1 pic of you and your partner having fun together. It's not all work being a superhero.
You will need 1 to 2 pics of you and your partner working together. You can create any situation you want for the work except for saving a kitten (cause you've done that).

This may seem like a stupid question but... in the second task we have to use both superpowers right?

Scout
27th Jul 2007, 3:36 AM
Actually that isn't stupid at all. I should have been clear - yes you should use both powers. Unlike when you saved the kitten you don't have to tell the whole story of a situation. You don't even have to succeed. I just want 1 to 2 pictures of you both using your powers in some sort of teamwork situation.

Just as a warning, the little stars in the text are supposes to be dashes or apostrophes . And I got a bit lazy in the writing, so TNN = The Nasal Nuisance. Oh, and there are probably typos...especially because I'm writing in the dark, and sadly my paint program is not as much of a spelling/grammar freak as Firefox is. -tear-

I've pmed the judges (got up early and am falling asleep waiting). If the last entry gets in on time I'll send another pm to point it out in the morning.

HAVING FUN TOGETHER
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/21.jpg
One thing I like to do with my friends is to cook! It's such great fun. Buuuut... The Nasal Nuisance, though very adoring, can get a bit superior when it come to cooking. Because he can smell if the food is right or wrong, he took over the kitchen! I guess he had fun, but I got a wee bit frustrated! But when he came out of "hyperspeed" (it was like he was everywhere...) he had cooked the most amazing food ever! So we ate and listened too music and hanged like friends all night. It's was very fun.


FIGHTING CRIME
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/25.jpg

After dinner, we were supposed to walk to the movies and watch "The Fantastic Four", when suddenly The Nasal Nuisance looked all glazed eyes and wondered off into a deserted alley. Creepy!

There right inftont of us, the super villian Rose Poison stood and she had succeeded in hypnotizing Nasal Nuisance with her smell of perfume. Me who was un-affected, got really mad! No one does anything like that too my friends!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/26.jpg

"Ha ha, now I will extract Nasal Nuisance's power!" Rose Poison said, just as I swooped down on her and started absorbing her perfume.

The Nasal Nuisance was really angry and helped me drag Rose Poison to jail.
We got to the movies in time, and Rose Poison was safe, behind bars. One thing I couldn't argue with, the perfume smelled wonderful...

JUDGE 2

The Nasal Nuisance (DontDieKThx)
Score: 29
Comment(s): Loved how you made your pictures look like a comic book. Also it was very creative to sniff out poisonous plants to use. Smell isn't an easily used skill but you used it well.

Catellia Flower (SilentPsycho)
Score: 24
Comment(s): Moonlight is a wonderful cat name. While true cats will attack a dangling, moving object I think your tail could have been used a little more creatively. Too bad there aren't cute points because the kittens were adorable!

Splashgirl (Gerbera)
Score: 27
Comment(s): I liked the inset pictures – it was a creative way to give close-ups. And I thought an oil-slick was a cute use of your power.

The Sick (Zaggytiddies)
Score: 29
Comment(s): The kitten gambling and the little "dink" were both well done. I loved your pics and your story.

The Delicious Dancer (Thir13enth Ghost)
Score: 23
Comment(s): Good job on eliminating the plumbbobs. Contests can be great at helping you become a better pic taker. You story was cute. The pictures were a little plain. It probably would have helped to have a couple of plants or other items. Also zooming in on the last picture to give a better look at you and the kitten would have upped the cuteness factor.

The Freezer (Anne)
Score: 26
Comment(s): Oh how frustrating it must have been working with your video card. I overlooked the funkiness going on in the pictures and just concentrated on the non-funky parts. Poor wet kitty. The insets help with the story telling so I'm glad you included them.

The Human Glowstick (Haylifer)
Score: 29
Comment(s): Oh no not the stinky sewers. Nice setup and nice pics. I love the unique way you did the thought bubble with a picture. Very creative.

The Odor Omitter (Sizza)
Score: 27
Comment(s): It's the classic kitten in a tree. I think your pictures did an excellent job of telling the story (except we didn't see the mattress). And I just love your superhero as she's just fun to watch with her crazy outfit.

The Super Swapper (Dreamer91)
Score: 25
Comment(s): I loved her getting stuck on the roof. And your pics had some interesting angles with the use of the insets. Some of the pictures look like they were stretched to fit (the top of the last one for example). And I think the second picture might have worked better from a different angle since you don’t see the kitten anyway and there's nothing but grass between them and the building it feels a little empty. Her expression in the last picture really made me laugh.

The Human Sponge (SObored)
Score: 29
Comment(s): Your second picture was fabulous. Actually all your pictures were great but the second one was just so amazing. The flying was odd since your character can't fly but still a great entry.

8/10
I didn’t feel like your super-hero ability really did a whole lot to help the situation. Undoubtedly, it would have been difficult to mix it in there and would have required some creative plotting. You heard the disruption and went to see what was going on, and once there could see what was happening. You could “smell” the kittens fear, but that doesn’t seem to be a big factor in your story.

I thought you did a nice job..much improvement over last round. I loved the water demon idea and your pictures were much better, though I would have liked to have seen them taken a bit closer to what’s going on. I was a little confused at how he got them up into the air though as you were only supposed to be able to have one “super ability”.

Delicious Dancer-21

You pictures were very plain and your entry seemed rushed. I would have liked to have seen a little more going on with your pictures, more props used, etc to make it seem more realistic. Also, they seemed to be a bit far away. Your story was a bit of a long shot. I would have liked to have seen you actually using your power which is to make anyone break into the smustle.

The Freezer-25

Sizza, ain't that the truth. I think it's why people should always take the judging with a large grain of salt. Because switch the judges for a different set and you'll get a completely different result. Tastes are so very subjective.

Me and Deedee (Yes I call het DeeDee, You know, DD from Delicous Dancer?) decieded to go swimming in a nearby lake. I absolutely love swimming. Well... loved. Because of course something bad had to happen. Some water got into my mouth and so I froze the whole lake. It took two hours to melt. When we got out we decieded to sunbath to warm up a little.

Working together

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/1234.jpg
Suddenly this half-visible woman popped up. A villian ofcourse.
"I am Unseena, the most evil villian! You will be sorry for ever wanting to become a hero! Mwhuhahahahaha!" she said and then dissapeared. That kinda sucked since we had no idea how to catch her. But then we made this awesome plan. DeeDee started dancing and I just walked around trying to feel something or someone since Unseena would be dancing now.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/12345.jpg
Finally, after 'lots of dancing and just walking around like a fool, I found her. I didn't wait and bit her arm. She froze and became fully visible.
And so The Delicous Dancer and The Freezer saved the day!

Yay for freezing effects! xD The pool was really hard to do and it doesn't even look like it's frozen or does it?

The Super Swapper and I have actually become great friends. One rainy day we decided to go out and give ourselves makeovers.... Standing in the window of the store making ridiculous faces was just a plus :)

http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e176/ooxlilyxoo/makeover.jpg

~Fighting Illness~
Hanging out in their apartment one day (yes they room together... I told you they hit it off... ) Super Swapper, or "Swappa" as The Sick usually calls her, told Sick about a friend she was talking to that had a Urinary Tract Infection. Now if you've ever had one, ladies and gentlemen, you know how they can sting like the dickens!! The Sick had an idea...

http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e176/ooxlilyxoo/flingtheory1.jpg

On the way to this friends house The Sick explained to the Super Swapper what her idea was. She agreed that it was worth a try and told her friend, "Oh come on Drea" (that was her name) "You don't think that AZO you're taking is gonna cure you, do you? The doctor can't see you for another week. Do you think you can last that long? Trust me! .. :smile: we're professionals." The Sick began giving Drea another urinary tract infection as Swappa swapped from person to person in the circle. The second UTI conflicted with the first while Swappa created a revolving door effect and the infection just flew right out of Drea!! They couldn't believe it worked! They've told the appropriate people and scientists are now looking into this new "therapy" to see if it will work for other illnesses. They're calling it Fling Theory.

The Human Glowstick™ and his friend, Phishstix

For weeks after the kitten-saving incident, my ego was pushed to it's limits. I alone, in the whole world, possessed mutant-like abilities which enabled me to save the day! I was a real hero, and some day I would have the respect, power and fanbase of a real hero, too! But then I found.. her. Phishstix. A girl who also had mutant-like abilities which enabled her to save the day also. She could hold an intelligent conversation with a fish! Could it be, I had a rival superhero just like a real superhero would? Well actually, me and Phishstix soon became good friends. You see, I always enjoy a bit of fishing, and Phishstix has some excellent salesperson skills when it comes to persuading the fish to take the bait. She says she has a severe fish allergy, but I think she's just being modest...

Crime-fighting aquatic bioluminescent action!

Phishstix and I make a great crime-fighting team! We discovered this one day when there was a jailbreak at the local prison. Three high-security prisoners escaped! It was all over the news; everyone was absolutely terrified, doors and windows were locked and barred, people didn't dare leave their houses... But not us! We headed straight down to the prison to put our evil-fighting skills to use.

With her fishy summoning skills, and my skills of bioluminescence...

JELLYFISH, ATTACK!

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a332/liquidization/jellyfish2.jpg

The criminals were so scared of the giant jellyfish, they ran straight back into the prison and locked the door behind them! Once again, the day is saved thanks to The Human Glowstick and his sidekick, Phishstix!

I thought this round would be fairly easy. My biggest concern was people killing other's characters. Or doing evil things with them. Guess I worried about the wrong thing.

BTW, I'll be posting the last round tomorrow even though you have through Friday for this round. There are a couple of reasons to post it early but one is that my new large plasma tv arrives Friday and I'm worried I'll be so hypnotized by it that I'll forget to post. :hippy:

Catellia "Cat" and I are major movie buffs! We love getting together and having movie marathons. We'll watch all three Lord of the Rings in a row, and...the best one yet...we watched all six Star Wars movies in a row (almost a whole twenty-four hour get together!). But sitting together can be a bit painful sometimes...especially when I sit on Cat's tail...

http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Discount-Heroes-Round-3c.jpg

Cat and I were walking through the park trying to debate over what we wanted to do, I wanted to go bowling, Cat wanted to go ice skating. I was about to prove that bowling was the way to go, when we were stopped by an elderly women.

"Please help me! A man is trying to kill me!"

I was about to say sure when Cat began to "boo" the lady. It took a moment for me to realize that her booing was our way of warning each other that we were about to run into a trap. Before we could react, the elderly lady faced us with a fierce look.

"You stupid fools!"

Fighting the Villain Part 1 (http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Discount-Heroes-Round-3a.jpg)

In seconds I realized that this sweet elderly lady was actually The Hot Tamale (able to age back to a hot chic)!

"I'm going to kick your butts!" she cried.

I did the next thing that came to my mind, I ran.

"Come back you coward!" Cat cried out.

She fought her hardest. As she kicked the Hot Tamale, I switched places with the evil villain and got kicked in the nose.

Lying on the ground in pain, Cat stood over me in a huff, "Where have you been?!"

I explained, "I ran over to the police station across the street, found the Hot Tamale, switched places with her, and placed her in jail!"

Fighting the Villain Part 2 (http://i66.photobucket.com/albums/h255/sillygoose1191/Discount-Heroes-Round-3b.jpg)

You've been doing great work so far. And that hasn't gone unnoticed in the world of evil. Now is the time when you are truly tested. A less than super super-villain has take note of your growing fame and has decided to take you out. And we don't mean on a date. You must fight for your life.

**Your Task**
Create an arch-nemesis. Give them an odd super-power (not from list make it unique).


***
Title of your post should include your superhero name
Post 1 pic of your arch-nemesis
Post 2 to 3 pics of you and them engaged in a heroic struggle. Well as heroic as it can be considering your and their powers.

There I was, facing ultimate evil. This really was evil. Her or it's name was Reflect, a villian which could take over it's opponents form and would do everything it's opponent would do. It was hard and whatever happened to me, would happen to her.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/1234567.jpg

It was a struggle. Hitting her would create a blast of power which would blow us both away. It seemed like there was nothing I could do to defeat her. She was an almost exact copy of me. Then when I was about to give up I remembered the time I spend with Deedee* at the lake.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v296/Thesimsfreaky/12345678.jpg
I ran away to the lake and stood just about two inches away from it. She was a few meters away from me so I took my chance and started running next to the lake, she tripped over the rocks and fell in the lake.

And ofcourse, the lake froze causing her to explode into nothing.

"When I first met The Human Sponge (or SpongeBob as I like to call her) I was in complete awe of her, here was a real superhero with an awesome power and a cool outifit. I asked her if she'd go shopping with me and help me find a cool outfit too."


"After trying on lots of costumes I finally found one that was me. I now feel like a superhero instead of some weirdo with a mask. Later that night SpongeBob suggested we go out and show of my new outfit at the Karaoke bar."

"After 'singing' about five different songs with the word hero in them we were politly told by the manger to leave and never come back, oh well it was fun while it lasted. As we left we where stopped by this man who looked like a giant icicle. I am The Freezer Geezer, I am here to turn your pathetic little town into the new Alaska BWAHAHAHAHAHA, and there's nothing you losers can do about. I was so scared my mind went completly blank. Quick start dancing! Maybe if you keep him dancing long enough he'll melt and then I can absorb him! SpongeBob said."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_93a3fc90_93be581a.jpg

"So I danced while SpongeBob cheered me on. It wasn't easy considering the cold weather and it took so long the snow started to melt but eventually he melted into a suprisingly small puddle, (I guess his underwear was made of ice too) and was easily absorbed. "

Also, what is a nemesis?
Sorry for those dumb questions

It's like I would write Splashgirl (The Human Glowstick) in my title because I'm Splashgirl and my partner is The Human Glowstick :)

And your nemesis would be your enemy, a really evil person. You always meet him / her and fight.

Sizza, just as Gerbera said parenthesis are ( and ). But I shouldn't have included that in Round 4 as you don't have a partner in that round. I had copy and pasted from Round 3 and failed to catch the mistake. Sorry about that. I have corrected it now.

And nemesis is just the bad guy. Like for Batman it's the Joker or the Riddler. And for Spiderman it's the Green Goblin. I hope that makes sense.

It wasn't long after the Kitten Rescue that I met another up-and-coming superhero by the name of Bolt 'O Lovely, and we hit it off right away. We'd often hang out at places like the the local pub, the Nightwolf, or Lake Radioactive Park or we would just stay in and play video games, laugh at Moonlight trying to get used to the varnished floor in the living room, or watch movies or anime...

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_13a39b21_33bf597b.jpg

...and playing drinking games at the same time, you can't forget that! Wait a moment, Palmer just mentioned 'lard'. Hang on while I take a shot!

---

It's not all fun and games though. Sometimes, Evil just can't give us a break. Or at least a chance to get over our hangovers...

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/SuperheroPatners.jpg

It was weird, I'll tell you that. As Bolt and I walked past Lake Radioactive, Bolt suddenly ran to one of the most foresty part of the place. I ran after her, and saw this man unconcious on the floor, with blue sparks all over him. Wondering what the fuck is going on, I stood back a bit from Bolt, just incase her hangover was causing her powers to go out of control.

"Hey, this one wasn't me!" Bolt explained when she saw the look on my face.

Suddenly, both of us heard a noise from around the bushes. Running as fast as we can, we turned around the corner to find the kitten-hater from last week! Only this time, he was slightly distracted by a sexy purple-skinned women, who proceeded to kiss him. Blue sparks then swarmed over him, as she sucked all his energy out.

...When did I fall into the Sailor Moon universe?

As the man fell to the floor, Bolt rushed in and dragged him over to where we left the other guy while I covered her by attacking the succubus. Purple Hair started cringing at this point, and yelled for help, which came in the form of a red-skinned horned demoness, who growled and lunged at me.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_13a39b21_53bf6d46.jpg

Luckily, Bolt had got back by this time. After a quick dodge, I used my tail to trip up Horny Red, sending her flying into the awaiting arms of Bolt. The result was shocking to say the least.

Mmm, crispy-fried demoness. Just the way Ma made it.

Anyway, after this the pair gave up and ran off, crying (Purple Hair) and swearing revenge for their Master (Horny Red). Shrugging, me and Bolt decided to call an ambulance for the two men, and I phoned De Lores to give him a tip about the man who attacked his kittens in case he decided to press charges. Our work done, we decided to go to the Nightwolf to celebrate.

...Why do I feel like I haven't seen the end of those two demons or their 'Master' though.

The Human Glowstick and I had decided to go to the Karaoke Evening at the famous "Marvel" bar, where all the superheroes hang out.
This evening there were not many people there, mostly ordinary ones (non-superheroes). It seems as if superheroes are not much into Karaoke ...
However, The Human Glowstick and I enjoyed ourselves, singing popular duets.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_f366fe6a_93be6654.jpg

What we did not know was that The Evil Nanny had managed to enter the bar. That mad villain wrecks havoc whereever she is.
She caused a short-circuit and everything went dark.

How good that The Human Glowstick has his special ability!
He started to guide the people outside, but The Evil Nanny had not have enough! A fire broke out.
That was the time for Splashgirl!!! I was able to extinguish the fire before it could destroy too much of our beloved bar.
Unfortunately the "Armchair of Fame", the place where Superman would usually sit, did not survive the fire :(

Being on a bouncing trampoline while being in her water-form must've been interesting.

--------------------------------------------------

I and Splashy (Splashgirl) were walking home from a movie when we saw an old man, that we recognized as Mr. Pilton, running down the street, followed by another man who was screaming: Come on Pilton, drink the last drop! I saw that the follower must’ve had evil plans in mind because he was so villainy looking. In order to save Pilton, I ran up to the villainy guy and gave him some extra-juicy bad breath. Imagine my surprise when he didn’t faint and instead looked at me like I was a goddess!
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/OOuseshersuperpower.jpg
He agreed that he would leave Pilton alone IF I went on a date with him… What a weird guy, but kind of cute.
Anyway, when villainy guy left we asked Pilton what this was all about and apparently my date is an assassin who poisoned Pilton but kind of failed since Pilton didn’t drink all the poison and now Pilton would die an horribly painful death within the next 30 minutes (and not the next 5 like he should’ve). With no antidote in our city, Splashy did the most noble thing. She turned herself into antidote and allowed Pilton to drink her, even without knowing if she would survive or not!
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/splasgirlgoingsplash.jpg
In short, this plan worked, although Pilton had to pee in the same bottle for two days to get Splashy out of his body.

Shortly after making sundaes, The Freezer and I went out for a (sadly unromantic) stroll in the park. As we were talking, The Freezer noticed some a bouquet on the ground and assumed they were for me. Though they weren't, I went with the flow, but as she thanked me I swore that the roses looked as if they had flashed radioactive green for a second....I realized something was truly amiss when she started coughing and clutching her throat after sniffing the roses.

I was completely at a loss until she screamed, "Black pepper!" Suddenly I understood...the roses had somehow injected the spice into her throat, rendering her freezing powers useless and causing her incredible discomfort besides. I knew that one of the antidotes to black pepper was milk...but the only milk I had was a spoiled carton of it I had kept in youth. Fortunately, the Freezer was able to return it to a semi-fresh state quickly enough for me to save her powers and her throat before they were damaged beyond repair.

When I tried to make sure she was all right, she pushed me aside. "I'm alright!" She said, smiling. "But thank you so much...you really saved me back there."

If truth be known, if she hadn't told me that it was black pepper in her throat she would've been a goner, since I hadn't been able to identify the substance when it was soaked in radiation...but I didn't tell her that. I simply replied, "What are superfriends for?"

Gerbera, the Evil Nanny...is she the one who takes a dozen bottles out to feed a full, sleepy toddler?

Sizza, I chuckled seeing "Splashy" in water form on the trampoline. Too cute.

DontDieKThx, Kitty Kaboom is a great kitty name. Has a superpet ring to it.

Scout, yep, that's her :lol: Before I did those shots I was playing my favorite family and those stupid nanny messed everything up. I have twins and she took both out of their cribs and let them lay on the floor and decided to play videogames instead of changing their diapers :( So I decided to use her as the villain in my pictures. I have default-replacement nanny clothes, that why she's not wearing the Maxis-standard outfit :)

Sizza, I absolutely love what you did with Splashgirl, so funny! :D

Ok another judge is half-way through their scores but had to stop to let a thunderstorm pass. So we'll give them some time to finish up. As for me, the cable guy left after over 5 hours. He didn't finish but every step caused more problems and at least right now I have internet, cable and phone. So when I get the last score I shouldn't have any problem posting pretty quickly.

Tissue
Ability~ The power to control any tissue (facial or toilet) to do her bidding. :THUNDER!!!!.... LIGHTENING!!!:

http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e176/ooxlilyxoo/tissuewanted.jpg

Seeing the wanted sign, The Sick travelled to South America to see what Tissue was up to. She used her roachy senses and finally spotted Tissue through a window. Tissue was trying to convince the foreman of the strip mining operation to sell/give her the trees he was demolishing dirt cheap. She told him it was to build schools in under developed countries. Tissue was really going to use the trees to build a tissue army of DOOM!!! :Thunder!!!...Lightening!!!: The tissues on the gentleman's table began to pulse, ready for Tissue to tell that what to do in case the man wasn't planning on cooperating.

http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e176/ooxlilyxoo/stripmine1.jpg

The meeting went well and the foreman decided to go along with Tissue so he could write it off on his taxes and get the environmentalist groups off his back. Tissue left the office as Sick came running around the corner of the building to stop her in her tracks!

http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e176/ooxlilyxoo/doosh.jpg

With that fatal blow, Sick mustered up all the diseases she could think of and sent them hurtling through her arm right into the belly of a very surprised Tissue. Tissue staggered backward, the life was being drained out of her by the cocktail of disease.

the return of SOLAR
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/30.jpg
Solar is the name of a girl that out of pure anger comitted the crime of arson on a whole village for the single reason of jelousy of another girl, who was thought more beautiful than Solar. In a fit of rage she put fire on the village. No one got killed because everyone was in church, which was located outside of the village. She was then brought to justice infront of the village's mage, who banished her.

Solar has not been seen for 200 years, but she has now broken out of the prison that kept her from the human world. She was banished to live in a cave at the core of the earth, where the heat and fire should have destroyed her, but only made her stronger; the fire attatched itself to her molecules and made her the mistress of fire. In the dark place of the core she started to learn how to control her powers, how to manipulate fire and to absorb energy from all living things around her.

In early August 2007 she re-entered the world of the humans to get her revenge on the race that banished her to a life in darkness and pain.

Solar came upon a small community, resembeling her own, the very same she wanted to destroy. The community was surrounded by a small forest, which Solar decided would be the first target. But, after a few days of burning and destruction, a woman called The Human Sponge came in her way.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/27.jpg

The Human Sponge was scared out of her wits, because how was she going to fight a being consisting of fire? There would be no liquid in the air to defend herself with. But she had to try.

Solar threw a fire sphere at the blue girl, which engulfed her within seconds. She laughed "How could thee imagine your powers superior mine? I have heard of thee, and has sought to destroy you!"

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/28.jpg


The Human Sponge lay on the ground, without even a single kick or punch thrown, and felt her clothes burning on her back. All the liquids she had absorbed in her days would protect her flesh from the fire for a little while.

Solar watched the dead girl on the ground with a smile. She was defeated. (At least that was what she thought.) The Human Sponge's body started to react in self-defense as it was begining to draw nearer to being dead, and started to absorb Solars water supply. Isn't humans supposed to consist of 75% of water? Solar was a human once, and she has a body, so this could maybe apply to her? The Human Sponge thought dreamily.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/riotglassdollsicons03/29.jpg


Solar started to feel warm and this was not normal, she thought. She started to feel thirsty and dry.

The Human Sponge's body absorbed Solar's water supply, and started to wake up as Solar was burned to a crisp by her own power. The 75% of water in her body had acted as a shield between the fire and her flesh, and when it was taken away, she couldn't control her powers.

The only sign of Solar was that a bush where she died would always burn with a bright fire, but it would never spread or hurt anyone.

"And how am I gonna be able to strut down the street now? I'm naked! Please miss narrator, be a good girl and give me some clothes?!" The Human Sponge pleaded embarrassed. But unfortunately, the story was over and the narrator had to go to bed. But The Human Sponge always prevails! With, or without clothes on her back...

And so they lived happily ever after... or was it lightly-clothed ever after? harr-harr

The Nasal Nuisance
Pictures: 8/10
Creativity: 9/10
Overall Quality: 9/10
Comments: Your pictures were a little bit plain this round, but it was good that both heroes came face to face with their weakness. I also liked the use of their powers in the first picture-it was cute and it made a certain ammount of sense.

Catellia Flower
Pictures: 8/10
Creativity: 10/10
Overall Quality: 9/10
Comments: As usual, your entry is creative and intelligent. I like the photo collage for the second pic-it's a good way of fitting in all the photos you want. Also, good job setting up a nemesis for Catellia! I smell sequels.

Splashgirl
Pictures: 9/10
Creativity: 9/10
Overall Quality: 9/10
Comments: Ha! The Evil Nanny strikes again! Excellent! Despite your comments on showing the Human Glowstick's powers, you seem to have done a very good job with the photoshopping, and your entry was definately amusing.

The Sick
Pictures: 9/10
Creativity: 10/10
Overall Quality: 9/10
Comments: Very original. I love how they aren't fighting a super villian, but just helping out a friend with a regular problem. And good job meshing their powers together! Your pictures were also quite good, although I wasn't sure what was going on in the first one...the last one definately made up for it.

The Delicious Dancer
Pictures: 8/10
Creativity: 9/10
Overall Quality: 9/10
Comments: This is another entry with very good chemistry between the two superheroes. The Freezer Geezer was also a very amusing villian...unfortunately your pictures were a bit dark, especially the last two. I know it's difficult to get proper lighting outside at night, but try using overhead lights or streetlights to make your sims a little more visible.

The Freezer
Pictures: 9/10
Creativity: 8/10
Overall Quality: 8/10
Comments: Your pics are very good, and good work with the collaging-it doesn't look too busy, but it's still fairly effective. On the other hand, it looks like you used a picture twice-the one where the Freezer is feeling around while the Delicious Dancer dances.

The Human Glowstick
Pictures: 10/10
Creativity: 10/10
Overall Quality: 10/10
Comments: Wow, fantastic! I love the use of their powers, and your pictures are great, they all made me giggle. Even the first one, which appears to be un-photoshopped, is really great. Uh, I have nothing to add! Great work!

The Odor Omittor
Pictures: 8/10
Creativity: 9/10
Overall Quality: 9/10
Comments: Your first picture could have done with a bit more explanation...I thought it was just the Odor Omittor jumping on the tramp for a few minutes. On the other hand, the use of their powers was pretty good. That Splashgirl sure is selfless.

The Super Swapper
Pictures: 8/10
Creativity: 8/10
Overall Quality: 8/10
Comments: Clever use of the powers there, very creative. Your pictures are a little bland and repetitive, though...you may not have needed to show the Hot Tamale in roughly the same position so many times.

The Human Sponge
Pictures: 10/10
Creativity: 9/10
Overall Quality: 9/10
Comments: I can see definate improvement! Your pictures are very good, and your story made me laugh quite a bit (especially the first part). I like that the Sponge saved the Nuisance, it was quite original and inventive.

________

Judge 4

1st: Human Sponge. Very good chapter. Enjoyed this team-up immensely. Doing character development on Nasal Nuisance took courage and I hope DontDie is willing to go with it. Also manages to develop her own via the righteous indignation over Nasal Nuisance getting hypnotized by the villain and acting as human shield to foil the perfumey plot. A true hero I look forward to seeing more from. First photo is a little busy but a minor quibble in a chapter this well planned. And I love the blue light effect on the others

2nd: Catellia Flower: Terrific work here. Photo selection is strong and paneling works well here. Best photo is the last one showing both heroes in the mix. Both heroes powers well considered and accounted for in fight sequence

3rd: The Freezer: Like this chapter. Pool looks plenty frozen and the holograph effect on the villain is a great touch as is the freezing effect in the battle photo. Love the co-ordination here as Dancer uses her power to distract the villain so Freezer can do her thing.

4th: Human Glowstick: This really had potential. On the plus side, Glowstick is fully corporeal this time as opposed to his team-up with Splashgirl. Character development in the form of budding ego was terrific and I love the jailbreak caper. Unfortunately, poor Phishstix seems left out swimming with The Freezer here. Only picture that really utilizes her well is the first one where HG is fishing and she’s cowering on the shore. And the jellyfish. How do you get a jellyfish to what is apparently an inland prison? Overall good but really had the potential to be great and didn’t quite get there.

5th: Delicious Dancer: Very good picture quality and I so want to know how she got the Silver Surfer type skin for her villain. Only disappointment picture-wise is the ability to show Human Sponge absorbing him. Although I do understand the problem. Story for the round is kinda weak on the villian’s end. But no more so than I’ve seen other places

6th: Nasal Nuisance: Actual picture quality is good but inconsistency of organization really hurts the story. Especially the the attempted circle panel which got confusing. Extreme leap in logic when Freezer tries to freshen the power-saving milk despite already being KO-ed by the pepper.

7th: Odor Omitter: Picture quality’s decent although the last one is rather confusing. I’m guessing Splashgirl at the beginning of her power taking hold? Undersells her own hero in the chapter which seems kinda odd. Did utilize partner well but again could have done without the mental image of how Splashgirl gets out of the old man’s body

8th: Super Swapper: Makes a valiant effort to represent CAtellia Flower’s tail in the first photo but then gives up. I understand why but it still hurts. Extra links also didn’t work for me. Distracted from trying to connect photos to story. Confusion in the partnership does make for good character development but story seemed really jumpy. Never completely followed it.

9th: Splashgirl: Really bad photo issues here as pertains to Human Glowstick. He ends up looking like just a floating head and torso. Nor do the photos really carry much of the story action. Division of duties is good and does consider both powers. Although Glowstick could take some Wonder Twin Zan flack for being more functional than flashy in his heroism in this story. I, Senor Spheroid, would gladly go on patrol with them or watch their adventures in a show but that didn't translate as well
as it could here

10th: The Sick: Not so good. Story is confusing as to what exactly they are supposed to be solving with this adventure. Final photo showing the climax is as good as it could be as a single still but the others seem out of place. Why is Swapper's arm out of joint in the first pic? And why does the second look like a health reporter is telling their story on the news? Just didn’t understand this like I’d like to.

In the headquarter of MTV(Mangy ‘n’ terrible villians):
Say hello to the newest criminal of boolProp-ville, The Butter! The Butter has the amazing ability to make anyone’s butt hurt like hell whenever she wants! I feel that taking down that annoying Odor Omitter is the perfect assignment for her.
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/butterface.jpg

In her apartment, the Odor Omitter is just preparing for a night of stinky super-heroism when she hears a knock on her door. Suspecting that it’s only Mr. Per Veert being a pervert, she ignores it. But suddenly her door is kicked down! And it’s the Butter! Not that she knows who that doesn’t matter to us.
She tries to take the awful villain down by using her bad breath but instead of the Butter fainting/puking/something like that, the Butter starts to shake her butt and right away, the Odor Omitter feels a terrible pain in her behind.
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/alltsamanminni.jpg
I'm bigger (http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/Sizzan/Keppni/alltsaman.jpg)

Our hero manages to shake off the butt-pain and runs outside, into a thunderstorm (how cliché!).
She know she must defeat this horrible villain and send her to jail, if for nothing else than to avoid seeing that “face” again. But how!? Then the answer strikes her…literally!
Apparently the Butter is afraid of other sims bare butts!
While the Butter is busy panicking, the Odor Omitter calls the police that comes to put that villain behind bars, and hopefully for our eyes sake that will be for good!

The Human Glowstick
versus The Professor!

Finally we meet face to face.. The Human Glowstick, you have travelled far to reach here. It is only fair I reveal my true identity to you as an equal... Then, we battle!

"Professor?!" I gasped, seeing the old man sitting before me in the laboratory. To his left I saw what once was my uranium lump - to his right was my kitten. This man was evil! I didn't know exactly why he was evil, but he certainly looked it, so he must have been.

Yes, I am the Professor! I know your identity also - you are bennyboy348, eBay power seller! My superpower is...

EXTREME AUCTION SNIPING.

The Professor gave an evil, cacophonous laugh that caused the metallic flooring to tremble beneath me and thunder to crackle. Little hamsters in their cages cowered behind each other and fear was struck into the hearts of all who heard it.

But not I. A strong sense of justice possessed me and I stood strong and said;

"No, Professor, you can't do that! You are stopping thousands of eBay-ers from fairly winning auctions and it's not right! I won't let you do this!"

The Professor let out another cackle, causing me to shiver uncontrollably, and not because I was cold.

"Then let it be so!" he said, stroking the kitten (which was now glowing in the dark). "We must have a bidding war!"

The war raged on all through the night, into the next day and the night after! But I refused to give up or sit back and let that evil professor win - I had a plan to stop him from cruelly sniping this auction at the last second!

As I said before, my glowing-in-the-dark became a bit of a problem when it came to falling asleep. For weeks I went without a wink of sleep, getting me fired from my job and giving me panda-eyes. Eventually, I decided enough was enough and I would develop my own way of fighting insomnia. I had drank so much coffee that caffeine had become a permenant resident in my bloodstream - I could stay awake for far longer than any normal human being. Of course, I still collapsed with exhaustion once in a while.

Thankfully, my last power-nap was the night before I came here. After three days of non-stop bidding, I admit I was feeling the strain a bit, but the poor Professor was past himself trying to keep his eyes open. And eventually, with ten minutes before the auction finally ended, the Professor fell asleep on his keyboard. Victory was mine!

While the Professor snoozed, I quickly alerted the police. They arrested the Professor on suspicion of being an evil villain. Unfortunately, the court didn't charge him with the crime. However, his ebay account was swiftly deleted - the Auction Sniper will steal auctions no longer!

And if nothings come of this contest, at least I managed to buy a Muse CD off eBay for £2 XD (That screenshot on the laptop is real)

I am sorry for turning in the entry so late, I was soooo busy. That's also the reason for not photoshopping this time :/

After all the fights against evil, I decided to go on holidays. My friend Elastigirl had told me of a new superhero vacation club at Jamaica and I decided that this was the right place for me - Pina Coladas and beach, what do you want more?!

But I should have known that I would not have the chance to enjoy my holidays.

The O.o.f.V. (Organisation of fierce Villains) had heard how I fought evil and decided to finish me for good and sent Cosmogirl, the uber-beauty!

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_33aa5091_d3c8b159.jpg

She has a very strong super-power: When she is near, everybody feels ugly, stupid and unworthy and will look even more freaky and act more goofy than usual.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_33aa5091_d3c8b51c.jpg

It was really hard for me to get clear thoughts but I had enough will to climb up a tree to get away from Cosmosgirl. But, thanks to the her powers, I set my foot wrong and fell.
Falling, I instinctively transformed into a puddle.

http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h292/Indijanajones/Sims/superheroine/snapshot_33aa5091_33c8b38d.jpg

Incidentially I hit her right in the face.
She just screamed "You ruined my hairdo and make-up!" and ran away.

I am Sinderella, I have the power to inflict any of the 7 deadly sins on anyone I want (laughs evily)

"When I first met Sinderella I was feeling pretty cocky after the successful defeat of The Freezer Geezer. 'Do your worst Sinderella I'm not scared of you'. Little did I know her worst would cause me to spin out of my clothes and throw myself on her. Yep, you guessed it she infected me with lust."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_13464246_73c8c3b4.jpg

"I have never been so ashamed in my life, I don't even like girls that way and if I did I wouldn't go for someone like her eww. Anyway after putting my clothes back on she just stood there laughing at me like she'd won already."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_13464246_93c8c4c2.jpg

"I knew what I had to do next. I could still feel the lust burning inside me but I knew I had to stop her. I was even checking her out while we danced so I had to keep telling myself 'I like boys, I like boys, I like boys'.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v21/crispy/Sim%20pictures/snapshot_13464246_13c8c5ae.jpg

"Which worked because I kept my clothes on and didn't jump her again. As soon as she passed out I felt normal again. Although I do wish had a boyfriend to go home too. I hate the fact that pasty freak was the last person I kissed, I need to go home and rinse my mouth out with mouthwash."

Y'all are all so clever. The skills you gave your villians are so much cooler than the skills I though up for the contest.

Haylifer, I believe I have been a victim personally of The Professor. I suspected foul play when I lost that auction. Congrats on your purchase as well.

Gerbera, Cosmogirl. Great thinking. And who can't relate to that.

Thir13enth Ghost, how clever. Sinderella's power would be so interesting to have. You should consider taking her into that superhero RP in the RP Forum and really causing some havoc.

---

After my adventure with the energy-sucking demons in the park, Bolt had to go back home for a few days to see her family. Bored, I decided to wander around and see if anything was up.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/SHFRPart1.jpg

Suddenly, as I walked past the entrance to a small valley, a decrepid old man in what looked like a dress came out of the trees and started to yell at me.

"You pesky Superhero, you've foiled my plans for the last time! Prepare to die!"

With those words, the ancient cross-dresser ran back into the valley. I followed, mainly in case the bloody idiot had a heart attack or something, only to find the old man posing in front of a bonfire, a book on an altar, a weird floating doll and... a huge pink gorilla?!

"I am Hojo Mojo, the Master of Manipulation, and with my ability to bring inanimate objects to life, and the energy my servants have brought me, I will revive this statue and use it to kill you... and TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!"

...What a moron.

"Before I can bring my simian servant to life, I need time to do the ritual needed to extract the energy from my capsule here. Until then, why don't you go play with my minions. You two, ATTACK!"

Well looky here, if it isn't my dear old pals Purple Hair and Horny Red, and currently surrounding me. Sorry girls, but if I wanted a lesbian threesome, I'd head over to Rai and Xian's house.

As the pair charged towards me, there was only one option left, and jumping upwards, I took it...

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/SHFRPart2.jpg

...I can't believe they were stupid enough to fall for it. Using my tail to hang onto a nearby tree branch, I watched as the Ttty Twosome crashed straight into each other, knocking themselves out. Jumping down, I then headed onto the main event: the Master of Incontinence himself.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/snapshot_13a39b21_f3c8f615.jpg

Noticing my movement out the corner of his eye, Mister Hefner snarled and removed his hands from caressing the golden thing, and started to turn around.

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/SilentPsycho/SHFRPart4.jpg

When I reached the dress-wearing git, I lunged and tried not to choke on the smoke or miss him because of all that Phrobus-damned light. While he was distracted, I used my tail to grab his freaky floating doll-thing, and threw it into the nearby bonfire. The book landed next to it after I kicked it off the altar.

When the Master Transvestite saw this, he let out a screech of fury and ran off, yelling,

"You'll pay for this, Captain Plane..I mean, Catellia Flower!"

...Great, I get an arch-nemisis that can't even remember my name.

My first real fight came about after I found a note stuck to my front door...
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/r4-Nemesis.jpg

It took me a few minutes, but I finally realized the villain in question was the stepkid of an old friend of mine. Clog Creep-- or Sam, as I knew him-- looked no older than twenty, but apparently he had already developed his own little superpower...and it looked like he wasn't planning on using it for good.

As I reached the alleyway, I locked eyes with Sam as he turned to me, and for a moment he just stood there, smiling shyly. Then, remembering what he was supposed to be now, he sent a convincing look of disgust my way. "The Nasal Nuisance," He said in a fairly good imitation of the classic evil guy voice, "I've been expecting you."
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/r4-1.jpg

I rolled my eyes. "Look, Sam, this is cute but I don't think you're really--"

"There's no Sam here!" He barked back at me. "My name is Clog Creep and I'm here to prove how great a supervillain I am. With my amazing ability to clog any object within twenty feet of me-- be it a sink, a toilet, or yes, even a nose-- using solely the power of my mind, you know I'm the worst enemy you've ever faced off with and that there's no way you can win!"

I stood there shocked at his words, and so it wasn't all too surprising when I found myself on the floor, "Clog Creep"'s arms pinning me down as he concentrated on negating the powers of my nose. As a few seconds went by, I realized the man's skills were quite advanced...I already had lost my sense of smell completely. It looked as if maybe this newbie would get the better of me...until I remembered that he was just that-- a newbie. Instantly, a plan began to form.

I feigned unconsciousness until Sam stepped away from me, apparently surprised.
"Uh...dude?" He said hesitantly. "Are you, um, okay?"

When I didn't answer, he let out a faint "Ohmigawd!" followed by a loud whoop. He dragged my limp body to the side as he continued to congratulate himself on the quick and easy victory. Once I was sure he was convinced he had won, I groaned dramatically and slowly rolled over. I heard him let out a half-shriek and barely constrained a smile. Newb.

"Wait, wait...it's okay!" I said once I was standing. "I'm just getting up to do this little ritual a superhero has to do when he loses to his archnemesis. Is that okay?"

"Um..." He looked down in thought, confusion masking his features. "Well, I guess so. Just hurry it up." I quickly rushed over to the end of the alleyway and began to root around for the one thing I was sure had to be in this kind of place...bleach. And sure enough, I found a half-empty bottle lying behind the trash can. If Clog Creep caused clogs, and bleach got rid of clogs, then bleach had to be one of his surefire weaknesses. But wait...

I looked over to the 19-year-old as he glanced at his own two feet, quietly waiting for me to finish raising my white flag. I had to remember that no matte r how powerful Clog Creep was, he was still that kid I had known since he was just a little preteen. He was still Sam. If I used bleach on him, he'd most likely die...and as dangerous as he could be, he didn't deserve death.

I crouched near the floor, thinking hard. What if I only pretended to put bleach on him? Would that work?

"Hey, Clog Creep! Think fast!" I grabbed some white crumbs that were lying on the floor and threw them at the man as he turned to me in confusion. "That's bleach, my friend! Now your clogging days are over!"

He screamed. "What? What?! How did you...not bleach!" He screamed again and started to do a strange dance that seemed to involve hitting repeatedly. Well, that would keep him occupied until he realized he was perfectly fine. What could I really use to bring an end to this battle once and for all?

And then it hit me like a sack of bricks-- what gets clogs out of toilets when you don't have bleach? A plunger! I needed a plunger...but where would I get one?
I almost smacked my head when I realized there was one sticking out of an old cardboard box just a few feet behind me...this alleyway was beginning to feel like a one-stop shop.

Leaping on him like a cougar onto prey, I attached the plunger to his chest and started pumping it repeatedly, hoping it would have some sort of effect.
Thankfully, it began to drain Sam of his power-- without physically hurting him-- and eventually he lay on the ground, spent.
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y265/hensa09/r4-2.jpg

Later, I found another note on my door from him...it seems he's moving up the supervillain ladder. Even though I can't say I agree with his decision, I'm not going to stop him. What's good without evil?

Round 4 Scores

Judge 1

Human Sponge - Very impressive villian. I can't remember the last time we in LOSS fought a fire being. Don't know we ever have. Photos were stunning. Getting a Sim into a hellscape worthy of Diablo can't have been an easy feat. And I can feel the heat of the battle with Solar just from the photos. Amazing her powers could be captured photographically. And so vividly even. Battle plays out brilliantly from the ignited clothes to the final outcome with the villian being reduced to a burning bush. Sponge has shown great growth as a hero since the contest began. Here's to a long and successsful hero career for Sponge.

Catellia Flower - Really impressed by this entry. Would not have expected such a limited hero to defeat a powerful wizard like this. Photo quality is really good for the most part. Although the one where Flower goes prehensile to escape the henchwomen doesn't fully work. It makes her look like Giganta picking up a couple normal size people. Good flow to the pictures though and they carry the story well. Whether she succeeds in joining LOSS or not, Catellia Flower has a promising superhero career in front of her.

Delicious Dancer - Love this villian. Very inventive and highly insidious. Mind control with a focus on the 7 Deadly Sins. I know this won't be the last LOSS sees of her. She can wreak real damage on the good people we protect. Photo quality is really good about a better shot might have been chosen to depict Sinderella's defeat. It looks more like Dancer is flirting with her still under the effects of the lust control than fighting. And not to worry, Dancer, the nude scene in this entry will not harm your standing in the contest. I, Senor Spheroid, am a very understanding hero and I realize the villian dictated those terms of battle on you. In fact, I can see it enhancing your career. If you don't make LOSS (which you definitely could) sell your story rights to Hollywood. I'm sure they'd be all over it. They love having excuses to put naked young starlets on screens.

The Freezer - Villian has interesting potential but I'm not sure it was fully captured here. The consequences of the fight are definitely interesting. Never easy knowing how to fight when your actions can boomerang on you. Photo quality is solid and the early ones add a really nice sense of mystery and intrigue to the battle. Problem comes in the solution. While use of past experience is a good thing and shows character growth, the conclusion doesn't necessarily translate in the photos. Still, there is potential in this hero. Still, Freezer has shown great versatility in her power and fought some real difficult battles. She could be a worthy addition to LOSS

Human Glowstick - Not really impressed by the villian. So he snipes E-Bay auctions. Nature of the beast. Love the photo quality. Especially getting the real E-Bay screenshot on the simmed laptop. Best photo work I've seen this round. Wasn't really impressed by the fight as such. But the character development in how Glowstick won was terrific

The Sick - Not sure what I make of this villian. Power doesn't seem all that impressive but she does make efficient use of it. Pictures seem to be a mixed bag. Love the wanted poster, the office scene, and the unmasking of the mom/villian. But when did Sick get such long arms? It's like she's Plastic Man or the mom from The Incredibles.
Storyline is very good though. Love the duplicity of the villian and the twist in her identity. One definitely has to wonder where The Sick goes from here

Nasal Nuisance - Not really a big fan of this villian. He's far too ineffectual and inexperienced at being bad, much less evil, to be good as anything other than a parody of supervillians. Photo quality also really hurt. Far too dark to be able to make out the characters in most of the shots. Although I do like the note and the villian's image being used as background on it. Fight is well thought out though utilizing all the villian's weakness, boh physical and mental, in defeating him.

Splashgirl - Another less than impressive villian although certainly an understandable choice in our current culture. Photo quality is really good. The subjects of the photos are kinda limited but that's not their fault. They do want they can with what they were given to depict. Fight scene rather minor by superhero standards although I do like the coup de gras Splashgirl puts on her villian. Still she's not LOSS ready. She makes good use of her power to be sure but the only really impressive villian she's fought was in the opening round. Might want to go to where they make Canadian TV shows and do a remake of My Secret Identity. She could fit well as Jerry O'Connell's replacement as lead.

Odor Omitter - Okay. I'm confused. A supervillian with a butt fixation? This is supposed to scare me? Photos do their job and show what they were given to do. Headshot of the villian suggests she was created just as an excuse to have something to do with such a disproportionate face. Very underwhelmed by this round and not at all convinced the applicant has a future as anything more than a local legend.

The Nasal Nuisance
Creativity: 9/10
Pictures: 8/10
Quality: 9/10
Comments: I laughed at the note-what a polite villian! The Nuisance is a good hero, what with being merciful and all. Your pictures were a bit dark, I know that's a bit difficult to avoid with a night scene but there are ways around it. Overall, though, another solid entry.

Catellia Flower
Creativity: 9/10
Pictures: 8/10
Quality: 9/10
Comments: As usual, a hysterical entry. I love your writing! Your pictures were a little odd though...although they did have merit, it was a little hard to tell what was going on in some of them, especially the second one. I know it's pretty difficult to do those fight scenes in game, but with a little creative posing, all things are possible!

Splashgirl
Creativity: 9/10
Pictures: 9/10
Quality: 9/10
Comments: Your entry was a bit short this time, but I thought this was a good entry, and the idea of a supervillian who is just too pretty is kind of plausible. The last picture seemed a bit superfluous, though, maybe another shot of the battle would have been better.

The Sick
Creativity: 10/10
Pictures: 9/10
Quality: 10/10
Comments: Excellent! I thought this was a really fantastic entry, although as a lover of bad puns I am really biased. Your pictures were good, your story was hysterical, and I really can't think of anything I'd change. Congrats!

The Delicious Dancer
Creativity: 7/10
Pictures: 8/10
Quality: 8/10
Comments: I'm kind of confused by your choice of villian...it didn't seem to really relate to the Delicious Dancer's power at all. Your pictures were good, but again, the setting was a bit weird-I don't know why they were outside by a roller rink.

The Freezer
Creativity: 8/10
Pictures: 9/10
Quality: 8/10
Comments: Your entry seemed oddly half-finished, like you ran out of time halfway through. Your pictures were very good, but the story was kind of rushed, which is a shame. Interesting choice of villian though.

The Human Glowstick
Creativity: 8/10
Pictures: 10/10
Quality: 9/10
Comments: This entry was very good and funny, but the villian was kind of...random. I know you didn't want to go with the "caught in the dark" option again, but ebay seems to have so little to do with glowing...on the other hand, auction snipers are pure evil, so I'm conflicted. As usual, your pictures were top notch.

The Odor Omittor
Creativity: 8/10
Pictures: 8/10
Quality: 8/10
Comments: Geesh, that's a horrifying villian! But she didn't seem to have much to do with the Odor Ommitor...and the last picture was rather confusing. However, I liked the writing, which was very clever as per usual.

The Human Sponge
Creativity: 9/10
Pictures: 10/10
Quality: 9/10
Comments: Excellent entry. Your pictures are fantastic, and I loved the supervillian. The way Solar was defeated was incredibly intelligent, and I generally loved the entry. Well done!

I liked your idea and laughed. You hero was good, though I would have liked to have seen more of a power displayed by your villain. Your pictures were also kind of plain. I would have liked to have seen a bit more.

Congratulations to Haylifer for the win.

Thanks to the judges who did a hard job very well. I know it wasn't easy to judge as all the entries were wonderful. But y'all did a great job without complaint. Thank you again for your work.

And even though there can only be one winner - a big congratulations to all the contestants. Your entries were all fantastic. I loved each one and I can't tell you how many times I laughed when I saw your creativity and humor. Thank you for making the contest what it was. Nothing would have happened without the great work y'all did. I hope everyone had fun!!

Thanks everyone, especially judges and Scout for the great contest! I've really enjoyed it :D

Thanks again to everyone.

Gerbera, I mentioned earlier (just up on this page) that I wouldn't be doing another cycle. But I would be very happy if someone else wanted to do it. Any graphics I put together could be reused as well.

Haylifer, don't forget to go request your star. (http://forums.sims2community.com/showthread.php?p=963353#post963353) .
