Pandora vs. Willis
Part of proving your worth in The Moderator Games is coming up with a noble, creative way to test your might against your opponent's.
Are we going to come up with a challenge?
I'm assuming we have one week.

That certainly narrows it down
EDIT: Our duel has begun, but needed to be stopped... for now.

Hey we ended up deciding on a fanfic contest, on the spirit of Leering Literature. The thing is that I just saw Hermes and Beth were doing the same thing. Would we get "negative creative points" too?

Oh, that's what we were originally doing anyway.

I haven't, but I'm not sure about LG.
She hadn't, so we hope you'll like this new idea:

Still haven't gotten Hermedy's seal of approval on our method, but I am going to post these poems anyways, one, to be a rebel, and two, because I'm quite fond of them. Here are my five poems for the duel:
Lady Grantham holds a deep, true and everlasting love of books
Everything can be found in her library, if one simply looks
Enjoying time alone with a good read
Really what else could she need?
Interested in a variety of topics and subjects
Nobody ever really, truly suspects
Great things can come from having someone so odd
Looking after the forum as the Leering Literature mod
It's true though, it makes all the difference
To have someone so passionate and full of endurance
Employed to sort through each topic and thread
Regular mortals anticipate the task with dread
Ah, but Lady Grantham relishes the task
Hermedy need never be anxious, nervous, nor apprehensive
Under Lady Grantham's moderation, it's comprehensive
Ready to watch over the section and ensure
Everyone behaves nicely and doesn't act like a boor
Lady Grantham's a known bibliophile
With a flair for wit, charm, and intellect
Not to mention, famous feminine wile
By now, she has earned a great deal respect
Posting at 667 Dark Avenue
Dedicated Lemony Snicket
Ever so friendly, courteous, and true
Helping friends out of a sticky wicket
If granted a moderator's powers
One guarantees her great dedication
She would devote many of her hours
Her duty a nigh sacred ligation
Consider Lady Grantham for LL Mod
It will be a decision you will laud
Books lay dusty still
Awaiting the caring touch
Of a great reader
There was a Lady from Dark Avenue
Who had a moderator's job to pursue
While trying to win a poetry contest
She could hardly rest
So her hair ended up quite askew
#5 Free Verse
The books nerds of 667 Dark Avenue need a strong voice
To represent them, the obvious choice
For this honour is Lady Grantham, of poetic fame
Who used to have a nigh unpronounceable name
She now has a much simpler moniker
Knows how to run things smoothly and prevent a bicker
Pick LadyGrantham, she can be quite the contrarian
But she also has previous experience as a librarian!

Hahaha, these are amazing, LG! Will post mine soon. And don't worry I wasn't offended, it was quite funny.
I wrote the sonnet against LG, for now.
You must understand me
When I advise you not to trust LadyGrantham the moderator position
She’s obviously an occupied miss
So her duties she’ll surely dismiss
Always distracted with the beauties around
“Omnisexual” she says
Yes, she only cares for sexiness
If only you look from a preoccupied point of view
You’ll find picking LG is a choice you’d rue
Her book choices are a bore
And her opinions, a snore
It’s clear for everyone to see:
The members’ displease
“Don’t choose her” is 667’s plea
Oh, it was free-style? Now I feel like I've copied LG. Should I write an alternate one?
The lust for reading,
Endless search for great stories:
F.D.’s fiery passion
I'm sorry if the syllable count is a bit off. English not being my first language and all, I got a bit of a problem with separating syllables in english.
When judging devotion, you must admit
F.D. is the one to be:
He knows what’s best for the forum
And the members just love him
He cares for books like no-one else
And doesn’t leave them just standing on the shelf
F.D. loves to share his information
And great recommendations
If you want a fair mod
I would find it odd
To pick anyone but him!

Sorry for the delay, here are my final poems:
An old man once told me
The tale of a boy named F.D.
He stood so much in libraries
And read so many stories
He had to buy glasses with lens the size of a pea!
Whenever I think of becoming a mod
I feel like I would do a great job
Never being dishonest or unfair
Nifty sense of judgement and sympathetic flair
Everytime I'd post, I'd always contribute
Rapidly stopping all dispute
What LLiterature needs is a helping hand
Someone who can easily understand
Its problems and affairs
A person that can care
But still know its position
Moderating with intelligence and precision
With a great knowledge of books.
For that person you must no further look
F.D. is here for you
And you just know what he's going to do
Put everything in its due place
With organization and grace
LLiterature's golden age is yet to come
When F.D. becomes the chosen one
Good luck for us both!
