    You might think that this week's theme has something to do with a certain multi-million dollar popularity contest going on in America right now. I couldn't possibly comment. :evil:

    Anyway. The theme this time is Politics - so it can be fictional politicians and leaders, fictional political parties and political movements, fictional elections, etc. - as seen in your favourite science/speculative fiction and fantasy works.

    I'll allow entries for the best part of a week. The ballot boxes open on Saturday afternoon.

    Usual limits for avatars apply: max dimensions 150x150 pixels, no more than 140Kb in file size, can use .jpg .gif and .png, and keep things board- and work-safe.

    How about one duly-elected democratic leader gleefully disintegrating another one? :D

    Honor and fear were heaped upon his name and, in time, he became a king by his own hand...

    ^ Great, but you should have used the original black and white version. I hate the colored one, it'S from a time when American publishers didn't trust their readers to accept black and white.

    The colour version was the only one I have, but I don't mind it at all.


    Last call for entries! Poll goes up later tonight.

    I should have probably gone with Mayor Richard Wilkins III since that would certainly get more lots of votes whatever the avatar looked like, but I couldn't find a really good pic (I still so I can't believe nobody has entered a avatar of him) and I really like how this one turned out, so this is my entry:

    [​IMG]

    Friends, citizens of Capitol, countrymen, cast your vote today to preserve the Panemian way of life! Help our glorious leader, President Coriolanus Snow, continue his firm but benevolent rule for many more years.

    When you go out to vote today, remember everything that President Snow has done for you, and everything he could still do for you - and to you. He has preserved the peace for many years, and has proven himself as a man capable of controlling the unruly and ungrateful Districts and making them serve your needs, as they should. Keep in mind that he has been bringing the food and cosmetic enhancements to your tables for years. Think of how he has been providing you with 24 fresh, young Tributes hacking each other for your entertainment each year; and that he has been giving you one young, ripe, exciting Victor a year to keep for your entertainment - and if you are among the richer of us, for your entertainment. But most importantly, think of how unpleasant it would be if your tongues were to be cut out, or if your loved ones were to suddenly disappear, or to be subjected to our treatment - and once we're finished with them, you can be sure you won't be able to recognize them. No, we are not talking about cosmetic surgery this time. Or, in extreme cases, even you might suddenly disappear. Now, we don't want that to happen, do we?

    Vote "YES" for President Coriolanus Snow. Make the WISE choice.
