Acrophobia 34A&B: COMPLETE

Recommended Posts

I kinda wish we were designing book jackets to go with our titles.  

That would be fun. Would need longer rounds though. Could have a separate challenge at the end whereby you can choose one of your submissions and create a front cover design for it, then you can vote on the best. Could do one for Part A and one for Part B?

 

I do have an announcement:

I misapplied a 2nd place vote for Bran's Cersei submission to SWMBO's. This has now been corrected and made a couple of small changes to the standings.

Edited to add: if you could cite the title numbers in your votes it would be very helpful to my counting up process. Thanks.

#1.  7

#2   6

#3   1

That was incredibly hard to choose. I just had to stop wavering and put a vote up. Honorary mentions to everyone as they are all good but take such diverse approaches!

Wow the wonderful entries keep on coming! Everyone should remember to post their unused titles in the "leftover" thread. After the round is over of course, so we can't see similarities while we are voting. ;)

First - 2. Targaryen Family's Truest Friend

Second - 6. A Sombre Griffin: Devoted Confederate

Third - 1. Outcast: Assumed Dead

Round Two RESULTS

 

1. Outcast: Assumed Dead

Jez Bell 1+1 +2+3+1+1+1+3 = 13

 

2. Targaryen Family's Truest Friend

honeyed chicken 1+1 +1+3+3 = 9

 

3. Aegon's Stoneman: Griffin Delivers Crown

Howlin’ Howland 1+1 +3+2+1 = 8

 

4. A Survivor's Guide: Dragon Champion

Fragile Bird 1+1 +3+3 = 8

 

5. "Aegon's Salvation" - Griff's Determined Concealment

She Who Must Be Obeyed 1+1 +1+2+1+2+1 = 9

 

6. A Sombre Griffin: Devoted Confederate

RhaenysBee 1+1 +1+2+2+2 = 9

 

7. The Friend That Failed

rocksniffer 1+1 +3+3+2+2 = 12

 

Raisin’ Bran voted

Castellan voted

 

Round Two, all agreed, was strong and this is reflected in the voting. Just five points separated the most points with the fewest. The most points just went to Jez’s title, a snappy title one could easily imagine flowing along the spine of a book, sat there on the shelf next to Outlander. in 2nd this round was rocksniffer with his title detailing Jon Con’s state of mind after RR. After these two, everyone fully deserved to be within touching distance and so it proved. A great round of titles and a collective pride is well earned.

 

rocksniffer 16 + 12 = 28

Jez Bell 12 + 13 = 25

She Who Must Be Obeyed 12 + 9 = 21

Fragile Bird 10 + 8 = 18

RhaenysBee 8 + 9 = 17

Howlin’ Howland 5 + 8 = 13

honeyed chicken 2 + 9 = 11

Raisin’ Bran 4 + 1 = 5 (point for voting)

 

Castellan 1+1 = 2 (points for voting)

 

The evenly spread votes mean that there is little change to the standings.

 

Please check my tallies in case any mistakes were made.

 

R3 is coming. It really is coming. Bear with me.

PART A

ROUND FOUR: AEMON TARGARYEN (Maester)

The oft forgotten dragon, his remarkable story is well known to those who know their history but wouldn’t we all enjoy reading it in his own detailed words? Such a fascinating autobiography requires a fitting title.

What name would the infinitely wise old man give to his story?

 

Create the title from one of the following acronyms:

A V C

T R I G

D F C P D

 

Please complete your titles by 11:30pm on Friday November 16th
