September 2012 Contest Character Spotlight: Mr. Cat
Prompt: Every now and then, we like to shine the spotlight on characters that don't get as much attention as some the others. This month, we shine the light on the teacher, dancer, and lover (well, he tries on that last one): Mr. Cat. Mr. Cat, or Neko-Sensei if you wish, is a major character in the series, offering lessons on both dance and life. He can be exacting, but he has a passion for dance and care for his students.
Show us in images or words a little more about this giant feline. What does he do when not teaching or keeping his own dance skills in shape? Maybe he enjoys listening to music. Perhaps he spends his afternoons reading. What is his approach to dating outside of threatening his students with marriage? Who is Mr. Cat?
Deadline: Sep. 30, 11:00 p.m. PDT
Things to keep in mind: This is a spotlight contest, and that means the spotlight character must be featured prominently in the piece. For fiction entries, the story must have Mr. Cat as the focus of the story; the character must be the figure that somehow propels the action of the story. For art entries, Mr. Cat must literally take up approximately one third of the image, at minimum. Pre- and post-series scenarios are allowed, but must remain believably within the universe of the series. No AU scenarios.
To Enter: Both fan art & fan fiction are accepted. Only entries that adhere to the rules set in the contest prompt will be accepted. To be an official entry, you must submit your piece into the "2012 SEP Contest" gallery folder by the deadline. After the deadline has passed, the folder will be closed and no new submissions will be accepted. As per general contest rules, you are allowed to submit up to three entries. (Admin may only submit one.) If more than three fan fiction/prose entries are received, a separate voting bracket will be held.
Prizes: Popular Choice: Feature on the club front page. Admins' Choice: Feature on the club front page.
