oh yay oh yay oh yay . . .
 
The Czarina is assured that the polishing of her diadem will be finished in only a matter of days and the resulting GLIMMER and SHINE will be Breathtaking - certainly enough to match the Awesomeness of the
 
2012 Script!   Because -yusssss- it's Script Submission Time!!
Or, in other words, Phase One of The 2012 Drunk Duck Radio Play has begun.
 
PLEASE consider sending in a script!!  Go to this thread in the Networking/Community Projects Forum for full details.
(because this thread is for the full sensorama of all Radio Play/Voice Contest stages).
 
Or, if you are a fan of another DDer here, don't be shy! Ask him/her to send in a script!
 
Please note -
 
This year the Czarina has found an expert team to serve as a Panel of Judges.  Scripts will be read after the Czarina has removed the title and author name from each submission and has forwarded them on to the judges.
So:  judges won't know authors, and no one will know who the judges are until after a script has been selected.
 
At this point, no one has submitted a script.  It's a blank playing field.  Please do not post that you've sent in a script when you do.  
Otherwise, questions, enthusiasms, speculations – all good stuff.
 
The panel is ready now.  Please don't keep them waiting.  (I mean, they've got muscle . . .)

I am grateful that ayesinback has realized she can badger DDers just so long as she isn't badgering me.
In fact, she hasn't.  There's this 2012 script thing and my mailbox is empty.  I haven't been asked anything.
 
Does one allude to the incredible situation of the Czarina badgering the Captain of The Imperial Guard? How preposterous!

The Captain is Captain because his ability to intuit every imperial need has been thus recognized, and, of course, the Captain would know to write a script and submit it forthwith.

I'm not going to write anything.  I'm too intimidated by these judges you're threatening everyone with. If they're that super-duper anything submitted will end up in the trash.

If I do send in a script I'm tempted to send in a recording of it with me doing all the voices.

The Czarina is all about the treasure that is the array of DD Voices, and welcomes recordings.
 
yet – loving them SO much, she may or may not share them.
 
Best to send in a Written Script (with or without recordings)

Пожалуйста, покажите должное уважение к Ее Императорскому Величеству. 
 
Царица те, кто голосовал “за” в спину
 
спасибо
Капитан гвардии
 
(Please show her Imperial Majesty the proper respect.   Czarina Ayes in back.
Thank you
Captain of the guard.)

Ah - My Captain!  The Czarina is again grateful for your loyalty.
 
However, the Czarina does not believe disrespect was intentional.  Regretably there has been confusion before what with the Czarina's cousin, anoinback, being a khaleesi.  *sigh*

Where are zee scriptssss?
 
oh?  you don't know what to write about?  well, in addition to the suggestions from the all-info post (see my sig for the link, with the suggestions copied below), I have another one.
 
a straight horror story.  I've already been practicing the creepy “little kid” sing-song theme music with my daughter.  In fact, my daughter co-created this suggestion.   She's having a demanding time, otherwise I'd make her write it.  
 
But when her computer crashed yesterday, it really was the last straw.  But then her itchy little fingers started heading toward my PC.  “No touchies, Missy”
 “But”
“No means No”
 “But”
“dontmakemehurtyou”
 
so then, well - the story idea (and I mean it, creepy horror stuff):  Chipmuunks with Ice Picks.
 
and I still think there's an idea in Fascist Finnish Fashion wear.
 
and from the other thread:
 
Title suggestions for a Maxwell sequel come from bravo1102 - -  “Maxwell McDuff and The Mystery of The Mayan Calendar” -  “Maxwell McDuff and The Case of The Waterfowl Empress”  
and from Ally_Haert: -  “Maxwell McDuff in A Murder Most Fowl” -  “Maxwell McDuff in The Early Bird Gets The Gun” 
 
Not a big fan of Max, but still need ideas? Here are some story suggestions: 
 
- What’s a rich genius orphan to do? Not let the authorities know that the parents are gone for starters. The staff will play along; they like being employed - because, you know, work in Transylvania is hard to come by
 
- Where holograms and portals convene: -— Mesa Verde is not abandoned 
 
- Super Hero(es) – (you’d be super, too, if you had two willing clones) 
 
send me a script!!!  drunkduck100@yahoo.com.  Because, like, there's these judges.  When judges have nothing to judge, they start gettin - “ideas” . . .

I can do falsetto all day, but that's the closest I'll get to sounding like a girl.
 
Which means we'll have to find a female DD user with a cool voice. A girl version of me, if you will. (Or am I the guy version of her? *mind blown*)

Well, I have it on good authority that someone extremely talented has sent in a script already. You're gonna love it.
My script irretrievably disappeared with one erroneous click of the mouse.  More power to whoever sends one in because you won't have to compete with any of my work.

I can confirm that the list of those one not need compete with is galactically long and mighty, and - regrettably - includes the Captain of the Imperial Guard.

Great is the sadness of the Czarina.

If I had an idea for the play, I would write a script. Sorry. I will audition and I might even make a commercial. I'm good at fake ads, I hope.

People should write something about their own comics and send that in. As long as the script is good enough it doesn't matter what the subject is. Everyone has their own stories to tell, the only reason you haven't written it down yet is because of either a lack of time or a lack of conviction.
