|what are sophies?
This is a play off of Logan's "Master and Commander" comment to Rory for what she should call him in episode 5.03, Written in the Stars. Master and Commander is the first of Patrick O'Brian's novels about Jack Aubrey. Sophie is the square-rigged ship that Aubrey is Master and Commander of, and those who crew in her refer to themselves as Sophies. It is the ship where Jack Aubrey first makes his name. So, it is in this spirit that those who ship the Master and Commander and His Lady are known as: Sophies.
what are the rules?
The Basic Rules
1. This is now a bi-weekly contest, meaning that there are two full weeks for you to make your entries.
2. All icons must fit LJ standards (100x100 or smaller; = to < 40kb, in .jpg, .png, or .gif format only)
3. Your entry/entries must be anonymous up until voting time. If I see it posted before hand, your entry will be disqualified. No buts, ands or ifs.
4. No animations. Kind of defeats the purpose of the community, doesn’t it?
5. You must be a member of the community to participate
1. Every other Sunday, a picture, word/quote, icon base, subject/theme, lyric/song or a free for all will be posted.
2. Post your entries to the original challenge post, this will keep everything neat and tidy.
3. Your entries – make sure you are using a host that allows direct linking. Photobucket and ImageShack are highly recommended.
4. When submitting your entry/entries, make sure to include the url. Example:
5. All entries must be submitted by the challenge end date at the designated time.
6. All polls and comments will be screened and only the moderator will be able to view them. Anonymous votes will not be counted.
7. Voting ends that Sunday and a new challenge will be posted after winners are announced.
8. Awards are simple: 1st, 2nd and 3rd places will be awarded to those with the most points. Mod’s Choice and Honorable Mentions will only be given out when there are more than eight entries. :D
