Top Write-in Answers;

For these, I ended up giving bonus points to a lot of people, like 5 or 6, because we had some fantastic creativity. I'll just put a couple of here.

Haven posted:

After a decent and even-fought match, Cena gets the upper hand over Owens. Owens takes an AA which he kicks out of because of course he does, but he is clearly worn down and tired. As he's stretched out, gasping for air (he is fat you see), Cena tries to have a heart-to-heart with him. Cena is not one to taunt, he just wants to talk, mano a mano.

"Kevin, you keep saying you're doing all this for your family. For your kid. Do you think they're proud of what you've become?" Cena points to KO's wife and kid sitting in the front row.

Owens' wife sees her cue and starts to yell. "Fight Owens fi--"

But she's cut off by Owens' kid, in full Cenation gear, headband, big stupid shirt, wristbands, the whole bit, screaming out "LET'S GO CENA!"

Owens snaps. He launches himself at Cena, who tries in vain to put up any kind of defense. He hits the Pop-up Powerbomb (which in my fantasy booking makes a "bloooop" sound every time, like Pop-up Video) and Cena is knocked dafuggout. Bell rings, KO wins!

This is a huge moment. For Kevin, for NXT, for his family. His wife and son make their way to the ring for the celebration, but what's this? Kevin Owens snatches up his son in what seems at first to be a fatherly bear hug but instead, oh no, BAH GOD DON'T DO IT --

Owens gives his own kid the Package Piledriver for being such a Cena-loving little poo poo. Ultimate heel.

Nah. I started writing a Tyson Kidd/Big E erotic fan fiction and had to ask myself what the gently caress I'm doing with my life.

MotU posted:

Was I right? Did I mess up? I lie awake in bed, eyes glued to the ceiling. Despite the air conditioner being on, my entire body is drenched in sweat. It soaks through to my bones, chilling my entire being. I see movement out of the corner or my eye. Is it a mosquito or a june bug, or perhaps something more sinister? A malicious spirit haunting my home, or perhaps the last vestiges or my identity I have begun to doubt escaping from my addled mind?

"What is your SA name?"

I repeat that question over and over in my head, almost as a self-mockery. The creeping doubt haunts my mind. 'MotU' I had said, but was it the truth? I cover my face with my hands and slowly bring them away from my face. Are these my hands, MotU's hands? Or are they MotU's hands but not my own? The questions fill my head like the, harshest auto-tuned stinger.

I arise from my downy prison. The sweat has soaked through my sheets. I sigh. Slowly I creep downstairs, hoping not to awake the multitude of denizens that reside in my home. Their cat eyes judge me harsher than my own malevolent doubt can ever hope to. I enter the kitchen, and open a bottle to pour myself a nightcap. PBR, 2015. A good vintage.

"Who am I?", I ask myself once more. Names like SamuraiFoochs and SportsGenius86 flood my mind. Am I them? Are they me? No, no, impossible, I am a good poster. R-Rovert? No, no, impossible, I am not that good. My hands begin to shake. An ominous air fills the room. The phone rings.

I make my way through the haze to answer it. When I lift the receiver, static fills my ear. I jerk my hand away. I hear a voice. The almost robotic tone begins to speak.

"If you have participated in the prediction game this Season, press a 1 now."

My body goes numb. I start to tremble. I drop my my knees. My finger hovers over '1' but I cannot command my brain to press it. Everything begins to blur. My body seizes. Blood begins to well up in my throat.

"What is your SA name?"

I am unable to answer.

I will be forever unable to answer.

And here is the forum and questions for this week/month;

Ladder Match for the WWE Championship (10 Points)

Which Authority Members are going to help Seth Rollins? (checkboxes, 1 point per correct one)

Money in the Bank Ladder Match (10 points)

Intercontinental Championship Match: Ryback versus Big Show (7 points)

Champion Versus Champion Rematch; John Cena versus Kevin Owens (7 points)

WWE Tag Team Title Match: New Day versus Prime Time Players (6 Points)

Preshow; R-Truth versus King Barret (2 points)

Diva's Title Match; Paige versus Nikki Bella (2 points)


http://goo.gl/forms/sGn0htpv8m

Don't forget to have fun!

I realize the point values are still quite low. They will be picking up as the game presses on because having to do 3 of these over 6 weeks is actually pretty tiring.

Here's the total results;

I realize it's not a lot of points, but there doesn't seem to be any reason NOT to just check all the boxes for Authority Interference just to cover your bases, unless I'm looking at this wrong.

Just saying, though you probably already saw that and that's the point.

my original idea was that if you didn't pick someone who didn't show up you got a point, but if they didn't show up and you did pick it you got nothing, like this;

Say JJ, Big Show interfere but no Kane;

Picking JJ, Big Show, but not Kane is 3 points
Picking JJ, Big Show, and Kane is 2 points.

I unno. Maybe I'll do it your way.

I made my picks with the assumption that it was working this way, with unchecked boxes giving points if they don't help out. I'd prefer to stick to that method. It's also the only way that makes sense to me, because otherwise everyone has no reason to do anything but check all the boxes anyway, and at that point why even have the category?

Nah, it just wasn't clear at least to me that this would be the method, and others seem to think the same way you do. This is better.

Can you link the scoring sheet?

Also, are you deducting wrong answers from the interference question? As it's written, we can just check everyone and get all the points for the correct ones with no penalty.

yeah I forgot to link the score sheet. I'll add it to OP and here.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...#gid=1758824609

What it is is that that you won't lose points for the interference, but you might not gain any. If you just check everyone then everyone that interferes will give you a point, but everyone who doesn't won't give you a point. While if you correctly predict who won't be there, or if no one will be and you left it, you get points for that.

like;

J&J, Kane, and new Authority Member Kevin Owens Interfere;

Points for J&J, Kane, and 'Other Authority Member', plus points for leaving HHH/Steph and Big Show blank.

No one interferes;

1 point for each one left blank

Everyone interferes;

1 point for each one marked
