Oh yeah, my votes:
Spoiler:



As for the growing Space Wars story, I'd prefer a story woven at the end overlooking the entire thing. Since everyone fights everyone else, it's gonna be a horribly cluttered up story of all sorts of fights. Inevitable internal-strife will probably land at critical moments of the campaign and you'd need to figure out how to explain those away.

Wonderful, but how many votes did we have the last two matches? I wonder how many more votes we've been getting each match.

Let's guess on how much Yurie will lose to Tomoyo by. I will guess 180, and I'm being generous.

Well, I mentioned that a cookie will prevent voting more than once, but it's so easy to clear a cookie from your history that people tend to think, "Oh, this guy isn't so smart - I can tack on 1000 votes and not get caught." The truth of the matter is, in Saimoe contests in general, there's always someone who takes a look at the votes in general, and ISML doesn't have a system where votes are announced immediately after results are closed - for a good reason. I tend to check over all votes carefully after the conclusion of each match to make sure that there's nothing that gets past me.

No wayz, Tomoyo will win by at least 300.
If KholdSecks got too many KyoAni/Type-Moon/Negima voters, this may tip it more.

As for the thingie I was talking about for the space opera, I think a layout like this would be good. The ones I filled in are important.
And Fate/Stay Night and Negima should be seperate because of their large voter bases. So they're non-KyoAni, but they're neutral.


EDIT: Topaz -> Sun, right?
I should prepare a bit in advance this time.

Somebody cue the orchestra to play the opening moments of Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony. I don't have access to YouTube because my work place OS is custom installed Linux while being without administrator access, but it would be nice if you can find Mravinsky's Leningrad Philharmonic version for it. Kyo-Ani Empire's march music should be Shostakovich's 7th Symphony 'Leningrad' which also happens to be BGM for the Day of Sagittarius III. Nanoha and F/SN Faction prefers Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, while Strawberry Panic cheers on with Toreador Song from Carmen.

Well, I posted one last reminder over in MAL before this match ends. I look forward to very interesting results, since I don't know, we might have new voters.

@qtip: We need to vote for the profile pictures soon, I think.

Here's to a sleepless weekend. Aquamarine 9 has concluded. Let the transition begin.

It depends on how its written. The internal fights could be written as disagreements on policy, arguments etc and not necessarily full-fledged combat between characters on the 'same side'.

Though you are right in that for the story to make logical sense its best to engineering it after everything is over and not during (though the countless quips and comments we are already making now will come in handy later as guidelines/ideas). However, it may be that once ISML is over and done people will migrate over to doing other things (I for one will probably do so) and may not be that keen on writing things for this then...

Well thats a different approach from the original intention of the 'galaxy-map' which was to visually represent the fortunes of the different series. That is my primary objective in making the map. Each 'ring' is equivalent to a 'rung' on the more traditional pyramid view. The closer the mass of 'stars' for a particular series is to the center of the map, the better that series is doing overall. This means that the placement of the characters will be changing at the end of each round.

The 'space opera' feel was a bonus. A more 'formalized' space opera map can be done too (in fact take the opportunity to relook the exact placements of Kyo-ani since in this map we're not bound by the standings of the characters) but the 'visual representation' objective will come first.

But I have a feeling the formalized map will 'look' better and jive better story-wise if, like Psieye suggests for the story itself, it is decided 'after the fact' when everything is over.

If Shana hangs doggedly to top position or near top position for a long time, I'm tempted to place her in a Iserlohn-ish position

Ahaha, that is true - once the main event is over we're likely to move onto other stuff. It's worth noting that ISML is a two-parter, with the first part being the League and then the double elimination afterwards. Buuuuuuuuuuut..... that 2nd part happens when the other Saimoe contests start and we'd be way busy over there too...

In this world, there are more possibilities than the time and energy to make realities.

Anxiously awaiting results.

And what have you people done to me!? Nanodesu is running through my head uncontrollably and I haven't even listened to it today.

I'm halfway through my first 3 volumes of Negima! manga... becoming more of a fan with each passing chapter.

Full results to be officially announced at 0300 GMT (11:00 PM EST), the reason being that I am also working on the standings and the Topaz schedules at this point. The winner of the Aquamarine Necklace is below, but that's all I'm revealing until 11:00.

If anybody wants to try making a victory poster, be my guest.

Spoiler for Aquamarine Winner:

What are the dimensions for this poster, and are there any other specifications?

Yay! Not much of a surprise, though.

If you want it to be featured on the website, width can be between 500 and 640, height can be between 480 and 700 and the logo has to be on it somewhere. Preferably, have her in a Cyan/Turquoise/Aqua dress wearing the necklace, but that's like almost uber impossible.

Actually, it's not very impossible. Well, the dress is, but remember that she does wear Alastor, so we *could* replace it with something aquamarine.

EDIT: Oh my God I'm finding some very cute pictures of Kazumi while trying to do this poster. *drools*

EDIT2: Hey qtip, can you send me the psd for your poster thing so I can steal your necklace?

At the very least, put her in a dress.

EDIT: Oh, yeah, use some sort of background where the ISML tiara is somewhere behind her. Like the tiara's on top of a pyramid shaped stair case. Something like Miss America...

This could be hard, since most Shana pictures in a dress have yuri implications with Kazumi. Does anyone still have that episode about the school festival?

Qtip and Marina? Is there a vectored version of the logo you could put it up on some file sharing site or something?
