Yes indeed it has been quite quiet the last few months. As if the sweet lions were sleeping off all the energy they spend on the lovely activities we had in October and November. But last month we came back from the sleep to conquer once again a big activity throughout the Common Room!
Last month we had the amazing Lion King and Queen Competition. Did you pay attention during this activity? If not here is a small explanation of what went on during the Lion King and Queen Competition.
Let’s start off with the lovely Lions that organized this competition. That would be The Gryffindor Spice Squad! Yes those lovely Cheerios
So what was the Lion King and Queen Competition, if that’s what you are wondering. The month’s activity was all to search for the King and Queen of the Gryffindors! Which male student and which female student was the overall popular Gryff? This month we would find it out!
The very first step in the awesome and exiting event was to nominate some lovely candidates! Everybody could nominate someone, as long as the person was an Gryffindor, he or she could get nominated! There were A LOT of nominations! Especially among the girls! There were clearly less nominees under the boys. And even some boys weren’t actually boys! Who would have thought that Eno Thomas is actually a girl?! Next year he should go for the Queens crown!
In the first round there was a big cut in all the nominees! This was because in round 2 there could only be 5 gals and 5 lads to compete against each other. From this moment on it was a battle not to forget! You could feel the tension between the nominees. Everybody wanted to win; everybody wanted the eternal glory that they hoped to gain after winning the crown! But who would be the winner? That would be the question.
During one assignment the winners had to choose between some questions they had to answer. And of course as driven as Gryffindors are, almost all of them chose the question were they could rule Gryffindor for a day! The horrible actions these nominees would let their minions undergo. Some would allow them to bot until they die, another would let them fetch food for them. Then there were nominees who would just relax and do nothing. Did you feel the tension between the nominees? I did!
And of course there was the voting part during the rounds. You had to hide when this started. There was some serious blackmailing and bribing on the run! Just so they could have enough votes to try and snatch the crown!
At last there were only 4 nominees over that were facing each other! There was Kadina Tigano facing rookie Kaiwa Alexandra for the Queens Crown. And for the Kings Crown third year Tom Foster was facing the first year repeater Chadwick Cadet.
In the last round they had to introduce themselves! As Kadina was forced to not participated herself in this part, since she was locked away in St. Brutus, Kirra Rohan of Ravenclaw helped her with the introduction. Kaiwa put up a good fight with who she is, what she likes and why you should choose her as our new and first Queen! On the boys side we had Tom who wrote a lovely introduction about himself. And there was of course Chadwick’s entry. In which she wanted to introduce the Lion dance. Where I sincerely hoped that Tom would take a win from Chadwick, so that this dance wouldn’t appear into the world!
And so we knew all the dirty little secrets from our nominees! And thus it was voting time again! It was a thrilling moment for all the nominees. Who would be the Lion King and Queen of 2012? Who will get the eternal glory? Finally the moment was there!
And with proud I can present to you all, the Lion King and Queen of 2012: Chadwick Cadet and Kadina Tigano! And now let’s hope that Chadwick Cadet won’t focus his her life on teaching everybody the Lion Dance, so we can life an happily and peaceful life!
And this was the very first and very awesome Lion King and Queen Competition of the Gryffindors! See you guys next year, to try and take the crown!
