Site Contest: February 2023

Written by Admin  Posted on February 07, 2023
PSST! C'mere… No, a little closer. Keep your voices down, okay? I know, I know, normally I'm the kind of guy who's used to speaking real loud - doubly so when it's Palentine's! What better time of year to send out a special announcement over the Hope "loudspeakers", right? Ahaha! But… This February Site Contest theme is Confessions, and I've got a big one on my mind…

B-but hey! Before we get into all that, lemme give you sweethearts all the details so that I'm not the only one baring my soul here! I need to keep Robin's secret-seeking occupied elsewhere, just for a hot second - and how better to distract her nose for gossip than to give her a ton of it to sniff out? There's an Art Contest and an Avatar Contest - so use those visuals to show us something related to a confession! Could be romantic, platonic, familial, personal… If you've got a scoop, we want to see it!

The entries start today! The contest ends on February 21st at 12:00 (noon) CHT - and the winner of each category will get 100 Gems, as well as a special In the Spotlight Achievement and some unique items, the Spotlight Showcase and Spotlight T-Shirt!

Winners get chosen based on the number of Cheers that their entry receives. And don't forget to read the Rules!

Whew… that's all out of the way. As for my own confession conundrum… Man, where do I even begin?

Look… It's no secret that I've had a thing for Andre for years now. I'm not exactly Mr. Subtlety over here! But the thing is… I also may also have a thing with Andre? Or… I want to have a thing with Andre, but - oh man, I don't even know! I need advice, and I need it big time.

See, the two of us, we've come a long way from the days when he'd vanish every time I entered a room. Actually, nowadays, the truth is… we spend a ton of our time together? Like, it's a rare night that I'm not dropping by his shop with dessert, and nearly every morning he swings by with some early morning tea for us before he starts work and I hit the gym…

And sometimes we maybe… skip the middle step where I head home in between? And… I don't know. It feels… kind of like we're dating?

But I don't know if I can call it that! We don't do any of the, you know, touchy-feely stuff - it's not even in the same universe as what Gallus and his gallant lady are always getting up to! And we're definitely not like that sweet Solarium gardener and her robot, with their swooning pet names. I can't even compare us to Estella and Nic, constantly sneaking kisses and batting eyelashes when they think nobody's looking…

I mean, damn! I've had my fair share of boyfriends, girlfriends, and datemates, and it doesn't hit those conventional notes. But at the same time, I'm a pretty social dude, and this feels like way more than platonic best friendship? Argh, I probably sound like an idiot, but I don't know how to explain it! It's just…

Okay, so, like… On New Year's Eve, I brought over some takeout for him and Miranda while they were finalizing the last of those Closet Cleanout patterns, and we all got to talking about life goals and what we wanted most for the new year, yeah? And he and I just kept looking at each other and… I dunno. So Miranda heads back home, right, and Andre falls asleep facedown on the couch before we even hit 10 PM, and I'm just sitting there watching him and Fray do that fabulously adorable synchronized snoring thing that they do, and all I can keep thinking is…

Somehow, whatever it is that I have with this incredible guy… It feels more romantic than any relationship I've ever had. And I don't even know if we're in a relationship! I mean, we're in something, but not something I can even define…

And I think… I want to put a word on it, finally. I want to call this what it is – whatever it is.

Is that crummy of me? To want to stick a label on us? Like, why not just be satisfied with what we've got? It’s just that my feelings for him, they're so intense, and I want a way to show that… But I don't want to scare him off again! See, as far as I know - which is as far as Robin knows, which is pretty far - Andre's never seriously dated anybody before. Not really his cup of tea, ahaha… ha…

Aggggh… I'm a total mess! And I know we've just got to talk about it, but I can never seem to find a good time. There's always some new Snarl attack on Hope, or a giant lava monster eruption - and don't even get me started on that whole thing with the ghost pirates…

And right now, it feels like we're having a momentary rest, so I don't want to lose my nerve again - but I don't even know how to begin!

So, if any of you have time between preparing your contest entries and giving out cheers…

Please. Shoot a guy some advice?
