Winner #3: KiiwiiPowa

Ferghus lay waiting in his house,
Waiting for a brave traveler to attempt his luck,
His kids were chasing a mouse
Here comes a couple holding a chocolate duck

The couples offer the chocolate duck to Ferghus
In hopes for more luck
It must have been such a fuss
The couple exit the house holding a wrapped duck.

To express their joy,
They went to the market,
To buy a mega phone but,
So they mega phoned the joy of reaching their target.

Winner #4: Myayen

Lonely Regina on Valentine's Day
Sitting on her throne
Waiting for her savior
"Oh, will I be forever alone?"

Two years have passed since
Poor Regina still waiting for her chosen one
Only to be disappointed another year
"Oh, when will I be able to bask in the sun?"

Until Muir came along
And asked her to be his Valentine
To her delight she was no longer lonely
For she had someone to call "mine"

Winner #5: melty

Awoken to the lovely scent of breakfast,
I walk downstairs and greet Tieve.
Receive some pancakes and ask for seconds,
"Brynn would like some, I believe"

With a smile, I depart to deliver to Brynn.
Greeted by his usual cold demeanor
which brightens when he notices the pancakes
as does mine for I am but a dreamer

Because I know he loves me not
He prepares some tea with grace
Then we eat and drink in mixed bliss
While hiding my true face

[East] Melty

Winner #:6 NibbleYummyFood

In summer, our love is consuming, like time floating in the breeze.
In wintertime, our love is cold soaring from door to door.
When spring flowers bloom, our love is deeper than the Grand Canyon.
If the skies are blue, our love will continue on the floor.

When autumn leaves fall, our love is never ending.
From 2013 to 2017 our love will continue to grow.
From season 1 to season 3, you will always be my one and only Kai.
Pray to god that Vindictus never closes, so our love can continue to show.

Winner #8: Rachnael

Valentines in the Rain

The rain is pouring down my face
This is a lonely place for Valentine's indeed
The chaos, the coldness, the darkness
The immense heart need

To express my feelings,
To love, to breath, to hold someone tight
To visit my only one in Vindictus
To see the only one that can hold me just right

With the strength of his body
With his tentacles full of greed
With the one that will eat me up
With Kraken- he’s the one I love indeed

KEEPER OF THE FOMOR GOD
I KNOW YOUR UP THERE

A Mortal here?

YES, LAUGH, WHEN YOUR DONE COME DOWN AND FIGHT.
I know why you've hate,
But my death is not the answer
Killing me will only seal this world's fate.

THIS WORLD CAN BURN.

Forget me mortar

My death will only be the catalyst your trying to flee
WRONG YOU'RE DEATH WILL BE THE BEGINNING OF TIEVE
Keaghan No
NO ONE WILL TAKE TIEVE FROM ME

Winner #12: Xie

Memories

I remember the day
It was the same time of year.
That I met him here

As I ran, he held out his hand,
"I can offer protection
from those who scarred you"

Hesitantly ... I took his hand,
“Just ... for a little while … then I must go ... "
The demon gently smiled.

It was a long journey,
Before long, days become years
Time became a haze,

During that time, we grew
Just as the moon phases
Our skills waxed and waned

I hope that even when time ends
and the world grows cold
In Erinn, our journey continues

... my Demon

Winner #14: Yureha

Winner #15: ProR2D2

When I asked her what character she played
she said Arisha was her favorite class.
I then decided to farm her a good blade
when I just remembered I got one from glas.

It was this time of the year with valentines event
when I gave her a good ring and a cool staff,
and when the event came and got a passionate heart
it just happenned that she had the other half.

So I went to the Inn
Looking for my title to be shown,
but then I stared in confusion
when it said I was forever alone.

    Winner #12 does not meet the requirements that were listed.

    "- Come up with a ballad tying together Vindictus and Valentine’s Day. For this contest, a ballad is defined as quatrains (four line stanzas) where the second and fourth lines are rhymed."

    Ah, sorry, I just wanted to do it for fun and to express my emotions when I entered, didn't expect this to happen ^ ^;
    I wanted to say, "Even when the world grows cold, we'll still be together forever in paradise (Erinn)"
    It's Nexon's decision on what to do now, again, I apologize ^ ^;

    Congratulations to the contest winners, but to be brutally honest, I feel the same sentiment. Why put effort into these "random" contests when the selected winners are almost always the exact same winners from previous contests? This discourages others from entering future contests and proves that the judging is very biased and not random at all.

    It wouldn't hurt to submit a ticket about it, but keep in mind the disclaimer said to allow up to 30 days.

    Well these contests aren't suppose to be competitive. It's suppose to be an fun event. So just have fun. I had fun in creating my ballad. I didn't do it so I could have the best ballad and win the contest, I did it for fun. No one is perfect, No ballad is going to be better than the rest. People have different opinions. So just have fun when creating entries for these types of events like I do. I don't enter to win, I enter for the enjoyment and to see what other people come up with.

    Well, every entry was submitted into a pool with only 15 'random' winners to be chosen. So if 30 people submitted an entry you have a 50-50 chance of winning. But when an entry that does not even qualify per the contest rules is submitted, accepted and even chosen as a winner, that hurts the chances of entries that did conform to the rules as stated. Kind of makes you go "what the hell?"
