Hello everyone, welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

First, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.
I sponsored this competition again. ;)

Now that we have the legal stuff out of the way, this month your task is to tell a short story about a how your favorite video game character is spending their summer holidays.

You can tell this story using any medium you want: you can draw a picture, write a poem or story, perform a song, write a song parody, film an interpretative dance, perform a skit, make a music video, write a comic, or anything else you can think of. Then, the moderation staff will vote on the entries, and the top five will win prizes. A $50 Amazon Gift card will be awarded as the grand prize as well as four 10 karma runner-up prizes.

To enter, create your work, and then upload it to a third-party site; for example, YouTube for videos, Imgtc or Imgur for images, pastebin for text, or MediaFire for other file types. Then, enter with the link.

Important! Please submit your captions using the following format:

Entry: http://www.yourentryurl.com/thisisanexampleurl

I cannot guarantee your entries will be considered if they are not in this format.You can include other text in the post, so long as the above text appears on its own line somewhere in your entry.

The deadline for entry will be in two weeks, on July 16th at 11:59PM Eastern Results will be posted one week later on July 24th. (I gave an extra day since I am late posting the competition.)

Notes:
1. Joint entries are not permitted, due to the nature of the first place prize, I can't really split it. If you really want, another user can help you, but only the one that actually posts it will win the prize.

2. Maximum two entries per user, but only one winning entry per user. If you enter twice and both qualify for prizes, your higher-placed entry will receive the prize karma, and lower-placed entries will be bumped up.

3. All work must be original. That's not to say that you can't use other images, music, etc. as part of your entry so long as your usage of that other content falls under the privileges granted by Fair Use, but the actual end product must be your own.

4. The Terms of Service still apply -- don't post any entries that violate any of the normal terms of service.

5. Mark your spoilers. If your entry somehow spoils some game, note before the link to the entry what game is being spoiled.

6. To change your entry, delete your original post. I won't be compiling a list of entries until the deadline passes, so as long as your post is visible at the deadline, it'll be added.

7. The subject of the contest can be a bit flexible. No one's going to check if the character in question really is your favorite character, and your entry can focus on more than one character if you'd like.

Oooh, Amazon! Thanks Assult!

Anyway, I think I have an idea I might be able to do. This is gonna be a fun competition.

@AssultTank Would machinima be allowed? Could I film a game then do something with it?

So like editing clips to tell a story? That should be fine.

Another month, another contest. It's great how consistent you are with these, AssultTank!

...and I just this second noticed that your name isn't spelled with a second A in "Assault". O.o

Could we do a historical figure that has a video game adaptation? (Cao Cao from Dynasty Warriors or Nobunaga Oda from Samurai Warriors/Nobunaga's Ambition)
