Woo, that was a 'really' close election. Great job everyone, I was thinking we'd only get 60 or so votes for each character, we really went above and beyond with that, it just goes to show how active we are as a group.
Now, on to business.
For this contest, we need to develop our 10 reasons why we think Gant should be in office. Psh, anyone can make a list with 10 items why someone should do or be something. We're Court-Records.net. We've got 156 custom Gyaktuen Saiban smilies, we've gotten a blurb in a magazine. Surely we can do better then a simple list right?
So, if we want to win this, lets go the extra mile. Lets turn our ten reasons into a narrative, an interview. Something acted out with sprites and stuff. Something that'll make the judges turn and say 'wow!'.
Here's my proposal, but feel free to call fowl or change things or what not. Or even re-write from scratch, I don't care. This is just to give us a head start.
Our narrative starts out in the "Good News Bad Timing" News Studio that was hosted by Edgy and Maya with those silly Payne Glasses in the GS4 Promo. Edgy and Maya will introduce our readers and judges to what's been happening specifically with the election, maybe open with a blurb bout Mike Haggar.
Then they switch to on scene reporter Ema in the press conference in the courtroom.
We'd cut to the courtroom, you'd see Ema at the Defense Aid Position, Gant at the Witness Stand, Udgy at the Judge's stand and Von Karma at the prosecutor's desk.
Udgy calls the press conference to order and Ema will ask Gant 10 interview questions, our ten reasons for Gant to get elected.
Or at-least, 10 reasons why 'he' thinks he should get elected or what he'll be doing as President etc. The questions will be marked out during the interview.
Now, at some point during the conference, I think it might be neat if Phoenix OBJECTION's into the courtroom demanding that Gant not be made president. This should be done in my mind either mid way through the questions or later, but we'll remain flexible. This is all up to public debate.
At this point, Phoenix takes over the questions, and Ema is pushed off to the side, doing defense aidy things and continuing the telecast to "Good News Bad Timing"
In the end however, because this is really Gant's election and not Phoenix's, Phoenix doesn't succeed and Gant 'wins' the press-conference.
Then we revert back to "Good News Bad Timing" and Edgy and Maya give their two cents on the Press conference.
That's the end of my outline.
Now for our Questions/Reasons. I know of a few I think we should cover, but I'm drawing a blank on what else we should bring up. But as I said, this is something to get us started, we could drop everything and re-write it.
And as a note, the questions are in a random order, we'll need to reorganize them later. These are only ones that I've come up with.1. The Preliminary Election against Phoenix
It sure was a tight election, we should have Gant share his thoughts on the preliminary election against Phoenix and how he ultimately won.
If possible for this one, I'd like to track down the person who created "Phoenix Wrong: No Shit Sherlock", see if we can't get him to let us use the segment where Von Karma crushes Phoenix with the Bulldozer, I think that'd be a funny way to explain away how Gant's team ran away with the pre-ballot.2. Criminal Records
Gant's Criminal Record isn't exactly polished chrome, much less our tentative running mate Von Karma. This might be a good question for Phoenix to push in their faces. At this point Gant and Co bring up Phoenix's criminal record, Hobohodo, and that silly pink shirt. Also address that other nominees records aren't spotless either.3. Cabinet Members
Now with this one we can get silly. If you're Gant who're you going to apply for the various open positions? These should be really really really questionable. Make the reader wonder where their 'nation' is headed with all these questionable applicants.
Here's some Ideas I'm floating about
Vice President: Von Karma - Popular choice
Devasque: Secretary of Health - She's a smoker, the internal irony is enough to make you laugh.
Redd White: Treasurer - We're going to need his bling-bling animation, make it look totally like he intends to spend every penny.
Godot: Education - The cut with him will replace Soda & Sports drinks with Coffee Pots in every cafeteria across the nation
Feel Free to add to this list.4. Gant's outlook on the competition
Why does Gant think he's better suited for the job then say Mike Haggar? Perhaps address that while Mike takes the law into his own hands and goes out and beats someone up where the law won't suit him, Gant will flippantly make things legal and illegal so he doesn't have to break his own laws. He also has an extensive knowledge of law that manipulating it without having to go into the paper work is second nature. Make people wonder about the future consequences.
Those are all I can think of and post coherently.
