Saint George by ƟE←¤, Bryce, Young Cain, Madeleine Claire, Dr. Awkward, Mayya, Celestia Ridgemore, underneath?, Elyon Fonwicket, Argyle Foxxe

INSTRUCTIONS: Slay a dragon. Celebrate in verse, song, or painting.

Non-Players: An entire fucking school.

And so it was, one fated fall afternoon that twin teams tried to take task against each other, to slay each other, one with a bloody wonderful mascot and the other bereft of such, but nonetheless entertaining.
This entertainment, described by one Dr. Nicotine Menswear, PHD, was, after being described by myself, declared to be like Salvador Dali writing a porno. In fact, the truth is much, much more pitiful.
At the Glorious Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts and The Overnamed, we here have a little thing for all those scrawny art students to get all their sporty bullshit out of their systems, something cathartic that Aristotle would've liked, the pain and the grit of the field gettin' into their bones and screaming at them about why they don't like to do physical activity with such typical fare as the human pyramid, the three legged race, finger painting competitions for pete's sake...
This travesty has existed, institutionalized, for four years, this quadratic sum equating to the dear player, Young Cain's time at the school. All departments had combatted, but, on this strange day, twin teams, both represented in the land of ES EF ZERO came together in conflict.

May the most ridiculous win. Or loose. It works that way.


Yellow Tribe Don’t Take Bribes
By Jackson Van Fleet Brown.

Hello and how do you do ?
Who am I ? Who are you ?
Where do I come from ? I come from 202
202 with the rest of my crew
we ain’t blue
we’re yellow, all good fellows
from 202, we beat the school
all those tools
we beat them all, even though we’re small
here’s the tale and it isn’t tall:

In 202 we were safe
safe at our base
yellow paint on our face
representing our yellow state
at home base.
Outside in the hallway
it’s a parade, you might say
of all the students, today
going the same way
all of them, today
going to the field
for Field Day.
The colors of the rainbow
walking down the hall
some of them short some of them tall,
all the students are dressed
in the color they think is best
flash it to the east and flash it to the west,
there’s a little yellow tribe that’s smaller than the rest.
Smaller than the reds and smaller than the greens
smaller than the pink and purple fiends.
Little yellow
all good fellows
room 202 is where they’re found
it will astound, the size of this crowd
colorful and loud
parading down the hallway, today
and now the yellows go this way
to join the fray
going towards the field for Field Day.
By the end of the day, they’ll be able to say
which color is the best
and until then they wont rest
because it’s a contest.

Down on the field the file into bleachers
herded like animals by the teachers
into sections reserved for each color
the students sort themselves out from each other
merging into blocks of each color
the colors of the rainbow,
on the ground, though
with a splotch of yellow

The noise builds,
the kids shout and scream just as loud as they can
in the bleachers, clapping their hands.
The yellow clan makes as much noise as it can
which isn’t that much, compared to the band
and all together it is more noise than anyone can stand
but that is the plan: to make as much noise as you can
and represent your color throughout the land
O Sam I am green eggs and ham
the more noise you make,
the likelier you are to win,
that is what the consensus is, amongst the kids.
So each kid cheers for his color
and not for any other
wishing that all other colors would be smothered.

A booming voice of the teacher
comes over the speakers
over the bleachers
calling for silence
calling for the contestants to take the field
to test the power that they wield.
A small group of each color
departs from the mother
going to the field, to challenge each other
all the colors,
separate from one another
going to challenge each other
at the human pyramid.

Yes, its made of kids, this pyramid
and who won it ? we did,
we won the human pyramid.
Yellow is the one whodunit
Yellow went along and wunnit
Yellow tribe no take no bribe
202 we ain’t blue
you don’t have a clue, what just hit you.
Pyramids are what we do
and painting, too
beat red pink green and blue
and all the other colors, too.
Third place, pie-eating
to add the final touch to our ass-beating.

I love that a shit-ton of you were out there.
I love that everybody was color-coordinated.
I love that there was nudity.
I love those masks.
I love just about everything about this.
I just don't see it as a completion of St. George.
I say that only because I think that if you had never heard of SFØ, this event would have happened. This event would have happened if you hadn't shown up, and I suspect that you had little to do with the organizing of this event.
I think posting this as a completion of St. George would be like me going to an Easter Egg hunt and posting my experience as a completion of The Treasure Hunters. I should also point out that me doing that would actually be a valid completion, but one I wouldn't vote for. I guess more appropriately it would be like going to a foam rave and posting that as a completion of Make It Soft.
I guess my problem is with intent.
And if you're pissed because I'm criticizing this, go back and read the first five lines up there. I'm just writing this to explain why I'm not voting.

I agree with Lincøln, I am just not as disciplined. I see dragons (which may or not have happened without sfø) and there is verse (clearly tasking). I voted for the dragons.

I see Lincoln's point, but I also think that submitting things that were not catalyzed by SF0 can be a good way to build up some drive & tasking momentum.

I agree with Rongo Rongo completely. Which is why I did not flag this. Building tasking momentum, and more importantly, sharing SFØ with so many people is worth 15 points.

well, ya see, the dragon being the school mascot, each department makes some form of dragon according to their color--
we slew all the other dragons-- purple (visual), tech (green), band (red), Orchestra (orange) and so on.
