    First thread
    Name: The greatest potential or a shadow behind brother's might? The complete Uchiha Sasuke rundown.
    What is it about? Bringing the lowdown on Sasuke's true skills and proving he is far more than just a sharingan bloodline genius. but is it enough to overcome big brother? - includes a direct link to every claim via manga
    Type: Essay
    Link:X

    Basicly since the above thread was way larger and due to Itachi's death, I have created a better and shorter essay that is a fallow up of the above, which also compares Sasuke's abilities to Itachi's:
    Name: Prodigy Childs of a warrior clan: The Uchiha brother's compression
    What is it about? Given the rundown on the Uchiha battle, covering the skills of both brothers deeply, from the Academy of the leaf years till the death of Itachi.

    By Tesk:
    Author's note: This essay was written in 2006 for the sake of personal amusement. It can be specifically added that I was absolutely off the mark regarding some things, but I chose to leave it as it was so that everyone can point their finger and laugh if they want to. There is also some additional material that is not explicitly Sasuke-related, but helps to understand where I was coming from with some of the more outrageous ideas.

    Whats it about: In short, it is an extension of Kishi's use of mythology to frame Itachi's MS/EMS powers and speculates on how Sasuke may have developed similar powers through a similar Japanese Myth. The Japanese gods used are Izanami and Izanagi, the primal parents of the Shinto gods, and how tragedy forever separates the two through the cycle of life and death. Shinto Hell is based on the concepts of contamination and purification rather than sin, which figure prominently into Sasuke's Journey.

    Actually the truth is that Kire had been talking about doing this for quite a while in the FC (and in PM's from as far back as January). She decided to hold off until the summer to do the contests.


    Plus this is part of a contest series.

    Anyway, this is a good idea to make it a series. Still, wouldn't it be better if the first one is finished before another starts?

    Yep its true.. And I've been doing these things for years already..I usually just have one main contest in the fanworks section and throw the essay in there, but this year I've decided to split it up..so yeah I didn't steal anyone's idea..:lmao

    Besides, I don't see what the big deal is, these contests involve two different characters, and are ruled/voted on differently..
    But for those of you who wish to enter both contests, if there is a problem of time or anything else, let me know and we can work something out.



    Awesome thanks! I look forward to reading them, and will add them to the entries.

    sure, let me know which ones you want to enter:nod

    Yes, we're obviously Sasu haters. Great observation!

    Would you kindly look at the other stickied threads and just take a look at a couple of them.

    When you find the one we're talking about I guarantee you'll enjoy it. :wink

    However, this matter should be dealt with, with diplomacy so I'll apologize for acting without it. But I'm hard pressed to realize why you would begin your competition while the other one is still alive and kickng with ideally the same format as my own.

    Whether on purpose or not, and whether I should be flattered or not, is not the issue. I'm just alittle vexed on the matter on why the idea that had been "thought about for months" was not acted upon beforehand, and was posted "late."

    Is all.

    However, I hold no ill will or grude over something so trivial. in fact, I believe that it's great that your going to do this for Sasuke fans or dissenters of all kinds and I will loo past this minor issue to wish you good luck on your competetiton.

    I might even post a thread myself, should I feel the need to necro it.

    Otherwise, I'll most definitately be wroting my bestest one yet.

    I've already approved of this contest as its something these guys do yearly as Sasuke's birthday is in July and they're the FC dedicated to his character. They did something in the Fanworks section, and this is for our section.

    Peeps, if you've got nothing valuable to add, just remain quiet. Everyone contributes, no one is forcing you here to write an essay and these guys are doing something they can have fun with and hopefully get others to help too.

    As I said before, if something like this is organised, I have no problems with it. Its contributive.

    If you're going to post in this thread, do it either to ask about the competition, or if you're going to participate. Don't harass or start asking questions as to why or what's the point.

    I'll leave it at that.

    @♠ Dogma ♠, If you really want answers to your questions send me a pm, and we can have a little chat. This thread is not the place for arguing over its existence..And this will hopefully be the last time I have to address this issue.. But one thing we have in common..we are both.."vexed."

    That would be good.

    Since the Thread of the Month contest vanished, these contests can be good for keeping good threads further from rarity. That's enough of a reward for not being completely original, IMO. :\

    In the Pein thing though, they got to use partners. Can you in this one, kire?

    This seems pretty interesting despite the fact that I hate Sasuke (only at the current moment). Maybe I might attempt to enter with a theory. I have a question about voting though. How exactly does it work? Everyone is allowed to vote for anyone?

    EDIT: Oh yeah, so if I make a theory and it is proven wrong within the next few chapters, does that automatically void my entry?

    And following that, is it still possible to win with a false theory?

    Voting for this contest is simple..anyone can vote for anyone, however you can only vote once..

    As for the entry, if your theory is proven wrong, it doesn't matter..it's a theory and will/should be judged on how its presented, but then again its up to the public on how they vote..but being disproven does not void an entry and is still eligible for a win.

    Sasuke contest (Thread Entry)

    Per Sandaime's recommendation I will post this humble little thread about Sasuke.

    In short, it is an extension of Kishi's use of mythology to frame Itachi's MS/EMS powers and speculates on how Sasuke may have developed similar powers through a similar Japanese Myth. The Japanese gods used are Izanami and Izanagi, the primal parents of the Shinto gods, and how tragedy forever separates the two through the cycle of life and death. Shinto Hell is based on the concepts of contamination and purification rather than sin, which figure prominently into Sasuke's Journey.

    If it should be theory instead of thread, I leave that to the judges to modify.

    @Cx, I hope you do!

    Remember not all entries have to be new, they can be something you've written ages ago.
    If I get enough (older essay) entries, I can make a sub-category for them.

    Date got pushed back? Hmm, I'll see if I can find the time to crank something out between now and then.
