The Sepia Jousts continue with Joust II- the Memoirs.

Genre: Diary / Journal / Memoirs
Target Length: Any
Submission Date: on or about 31 August 2009
Submission Place: Sepia Joust II Submission Thread


Special Instructions: Entrants will be the Memoirs / Diary / Journal of someone somewhere sometime in the distant past that sheds light on a specific and notable event.

They need not be the diary of a famous person themselves, but must be of someone close to the famous person so as to detail the motives and thoughts of the famous/infamous person doing whatever it was that made him/her famous/infamous.

Examples: Varro at Cannae, Vercingetorix's brother at Alesia, Vindex in 68, Spartacus dealing with the Messanine Pirates, The slave of Crassus at Carrhae, Lucullus at Tigranocerta, etc. Be creative.

Voting criteria: Voters will consider grammar, historical accuracy, enthusiasm shown in the writing, and interest generated during its read as well as the general feel of the piece.

Voting Rules are simple- only those entering pieces may vote, entrants are required to vote, and entrants may not vote for themselves. If three or less people enter, then Voting may be opened to the Public. The vote of a member of the Guild of the Skalds counts twice, should he/she so desire- very useful in deciding ties.

Voting occurs in its own thread after the Submissions thread is locked.

Your vote does count twice, you must vote, but you may not vote for yourself. See the rules.

However, the same applies to me.

We cancel each other out, which is why this Joust's voting is open to the public.

I would probably have voted for you anyway. Voting for myself would be wrong for two reasons:

1) It would be dishonourable.
2) Your tale was probably better than mine anyway.

Well, congratulations of the victory, Terikel.

Bloody bragging rights.

I fought, but the best man won, so well done.

Next time the Sepia Jousts come around, the Lone Wolf will rise again!
