What A Twist
When I first had the inkling for a Faction Contest, I had no clue what might happen. Would it be fun? Boring? Would anyone even participate?
Well, holy shit.
Blazing, unhinged chaos.
We made such a mess on twitter: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Dreamkeepers&src=tyah
Memes, taunts, and even artwork culminated in the day of reckoning yesterday, when only one Faction could emerge victorious:
They crushed it.
It came as a twist to me- I was actually expecting the insurgent reader-created #TeamGrunn faction to win. But in the end, following Grunn proved to be a drunken, fun, unhinged ticket to failure. ...Which somehow seems entirely appropriate, now that I think about it.
Time to send free books to everyone in the Troika faction!
But valiant- and hilarious- efforts were made for the competing Factions, and all of those participants are now eligible for Honorary Awards. http://dreamkeepers.deviantart.com/journal/FACTION-CONTEST-586566028
If you posted something that you think qualifies, send me a screenshot! Dreamkeeperscomic(at)gmail.com
I'll announce Honorary Awards on Monday, after- this weekend.
This weekend, when our ulterior motives underpinning the entire contest are revealed. http://www.dreamkeeperscomic.com/forum/?t=711
What purpose could we have in filling the #Dreamkeepers hashtag with content?
With training readers in hashtag warfare?
Right before the theatrical release of Zootopia?
