      2019 Divisional Cup Kickoff!   04/01/2019

      Hello, Friends!  As most of you know from last year, Divisional Cup will keep track of divisional participation throughout the year. Starting at Spring Break and ending with January's Award Show, we will be ranking divisions each month by their participation in activities, growth, and officer staff ratio to develop a competition for Division of the Year! The division with the most points at the end of each month will be named Division of the Month. As you can see on the chart above, a list of monthly events will be posted with the meeting notes and in the Div Cup area on the forums, so everyone can be aware of what will count toward points! Divisions can expect to see points counted for Weekend Warfare, Montage and Clip submissions, News Team contests, Twitch Subscriptions, Social Media activity,  and OTM/DOTM award periods in the AAP..  plus a couple of other categories weaving in and out throughout the months! Additional events will be added depending on what is happening in and around KSI for that particular month. Same as last year: KSI's large events -- Spring Break, Spirit Week, Fall Classic, and Turkey Bowl -- will count independently and figure into the overall scores, but not the monthly tallies. Different from last year: (Change is good, promise) This year Div Cup will be split into two halves. This means even if your Division doesn't start off too hot in the first half, you can always give them a good kick in the rear at the start of the second half, and finish off strong! Here is an example of how it will look, along with the standings so far. I'm sure you all remember that Divine Warrior's took home the win last year.. so as of right now, they are the Division to beat! I'm looking forward to seeing the activity and participation from all of you!    Side note: I took down the names of all the people who supported #billdabear. I'm coming for you.

So You Think You Can Write - April 2019

 

Topic: Houses of Westeros

Our first SYTYCW of the 2019 Divisional Cup has been picked to pay homage to the final season of Game of Thrones. (Premieres 4/14)

We want to know which House of Westeros is yours. Which one represents who you are and what you'd be like if you lived in the land of ice and fire. Take a moment to read about the Houses if you're unfamiliar with Game of Thrones!

Are you a descendant of one of the Great Houses (these are links!):

Or, are you descended from one of the many smaller houses spread out across Westeros. Submissions earn your division points toward the 2019 Div Cup!

This topic will close April 27th @ 11:59pm EST. Copy and paste the template below. Good luck writers!

My House: Stark

Reasons why: I'm not going to spoil anything for the people who are trying to catch up(my self included,finishing up season 6) but I've been rooting for them since season 1. There have obviously been so many deaths in the show,but I think I got the most emotional (like had to stop watching for a couple of days because I was so angry)due to the bloody wedding episode. Broke my heart man.

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: Probably House Targaryen. Freaking dragons dude.

My House:House Targaryen

 

Reasons why:    One heir known and the other a secret, they both follow a path of good and kindness throughout their plights. Both Heirs being an outcast probably is what set them up to be so empathetic to those that come across their paths.

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne:

Both as they seem to care not about the blood they share as well as it being common in royalty to marry into a bloodline to not dilute it.

My House: House Targaryen

Reasons why: I've never watched Game of Thrones before. BUT, I do love Buzzfeed quizzes... and Buzzfeed quizzes are always right, ya know? My Buzzfeed results for House Targaryen say that I am a leader and know what it takes to make it. It also says I handle responsibility well and I'm the best at what I do. It got the leader and responsibility part right, lol. 

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: I'm going to guess Targaryen? I have no clue.

My House- House Stark

Reason- Out Of all the choices here it fits me best (if I was in Westeros I’d actually probably be closer to a Bolton. I always play through the evil side of games first like in KOTOR). I do have a loyalty streak though and I like wolves so house Stark works. 

Who will win the Game of Thrones? Hot Pie. That is all.

My House: House Stark

Reasons why: I'm in the same boat, I haven't watch Game of Thrones besides from one of the season finales and a couple of clips on YouTube. Out of my time watching it, its just going to be between the House Stark and the House Targaryen. But I rather have wolves over dragons, so yeah.

House Greyjoy: I can think of the similarities, between us. We don't want stuff just given to us. We take what is owed to us. We are built through hardship, this improving our character. I have a bloody past.

Who I think will win the Iron throne:

Greyjoy they are the hardasses of the whole series!

My House: House of Targaryen

Reasons why: Being someone who doesn’t watch Game of Thrones yet..I chose them after reading through all the houses. Dragons win! Always been a huge fan of dragons. Well these people rode dragons and got closer to them then any other men ever did. They overcome a lot of disputes regardless of the fact they were the ruling kingdom for centuries.  Their sigil of the three headed red dragon is pretty stunning as well. I just admire a house that supports themselves and uses dragons to waste the land. I think I’d be someone along the lines of a dragon rider and tamer, be a huge part in the war and lead the house to the throne.

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: Daenerys Targaryen. Can you really stop her dragons? Will she be betrayed? I believe in the dragons!

My House: Stark

Reasons why: I really admire Ned Starks standing up for the right thing even though it cost  him everything.  I want to be kind of person who doesn't back down because something in inconvienent.

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: I think  Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow (I won't put his real last name to avoid spoilers)

House: Stark

Reasons: Well firstly, it's pretty close to my own last name! (Call it lazy if you want, I call it poetic). The values of the House Stark mirror the values of myself and my own family. Standing up for what's right, no matter the cost! I liken myself to Ayra Stark in her tynasity and intelligence, Ned Stark for his deep moral standing in the face of terrible odds, and Sansa Stark for her loyalty to her family. I'm also pretty good with a bow and arrow! 

Who will sit on the Iron Throne: John Snow!!! I don't think I could cope with him dying a second time round!!

My House: Stark

Reasons why: Im known to be very spiritual. im outdoorsy and my friends all know how good I am at sense of direction and me having the home advantage when it comes to forestry combat.

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: due to the fact that mother nature and its "wild beasts" (hence wolf blood) always seem to triumph. its the way the world works. I personally do not watch the show, never had the time to. but im just trying to speak statistically.

My House: House Lannister

thumb.php?f=House_Lannister.svg&width=25

Reasons why: 

  • "Fair-haired, tall, and handsome"
  • "There is no limit to Lannister pride or Lannister ambition." -Catelyn Stark

  • I identify so much with the Lannisters. Their drive, their ambition, their dedication to their heritage. Tywin and Cersei are my favorites. A completely brutal father and daughter. Never wavering from their goals. Never concerned with who they had to trample on the way to achieving what they set out for.

  • I think they four main Lannisters are the MOST well developed characters in the entire series. You have pure evil (Cersei and Joffrey), mostly evil but kind of cool (Tywin), a man who takes years to find his soul and realize he's not the same type of Lannister his ancestors were (Jaime), and a guy who is a complete loser in the beginning but then somehow manages to claw his way in and out of every major battle, plot line and GoT fan's heart as he secures his place as Hand to the most powerful ruler Westeros has seen in years (Tyrion).

  • [I don't condone incest in any form. That **** is gross af.]

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: My girl Cersei. How would that be for an ending? The bad beech kills off everyone - Jon Snow, Daenerys, Tyrion, everyone. Clap your hands for Mr Martin. I'd cry my eyes out and throw something at me TV in sheer, raging joy.

My House: The Lannisters

Reasons why: For, "A Lannister always pays his debts.". I am by no means the richest and far from it. But I am the most powerful... Marvel vs Capcom player... Plus as an old school Destiny player, I have an affinity for Tyrion Lannister(Peter Dinklage).

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: Khaleesi Targaryen. I mean come on... she is THE MOTHER OF DRAGONS.

My House: House Targaryen

 

Hatter_Sigil.jpg

 

 

Reasons why: 

  • "Of Fire and Blood" This motto of the Targaryen's rings true to my inner being, especially since that is occasionally the only way to take back what is yours.
  • “Do you understand? I’m no ordinary woman. My dreams come true” – Daenerys Targaryen
  • “We both want to help people. We can only help them from a position of strength. Sometimes strength is terrible” 
  • “But when enough people make false promises words stop meaning anything. Then there are no more answers, only better and better lies” – Jon Snow

The Targaryen's stand for everything I believe in. Honesty, truth, a need to free the damned. They believe in knowledge, strength, and integrity too (see what I did there lol). Yeah, some were crazy, but we're all a little mad in our own aspects. At the end of the day, being breakers of chains sounds WAY more enticing than blowing up a whole city with Greek Fire. 

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: I'm not 100% sure. I would love to believe that in the perfect world of Westeros that Jon and Daenerys could rule side by side. That will never happen though. Especially with the way they are portraying Daenerys atm. Would be our luck, Bran turns out to be the Night King, kills everyone, and rules alone.

My House: House Stark

Reasons why: 

  • For any who watch Game of Thrones, you know that House Stark is, or tries to be, honorable and honest even when it has cost members of this great house. Integrity and honor may not mean much to many people anymore, but I do try to live my life with these traits holding the utmost importance in my day to day personal character.
  • Another reason I would claim House Stark is due to their motto "Winter is Coming" Although in Game of Thrones it is usually taken literally, their motto could also be taken figuratively meaning more along the lines of being prepared for the hardships in life. If you carry yourself through life recognizing that hardships will come, it is much easier to overcome them when they arrive. My time in the military and as a law enforcement officer have definitely reinforced that same value in myself. To respect that any situation, no matter how seemingly peaceful, can come to a swift end and that "winter" will eventually arrive. Hopefully without all the snow and ice zombies. You never know.
  • I have an all white German Shepherd who is my own personal Direwolf, the animal that graces the sigil of House Stark. I have been on some adventures with my trusty companion, but as of yet he has not saved my life or mauled/intimidated my enemies.

Who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne:

I hope that the Iron Throne will be taken by Jon Snow/Aegon Targaryen. I think this due to the fact that it is actually his birthright, but also due to the fact that he doesn't want the power and to lead. Everyone else, including the Dragon Queen, all WANT the Iron Throne but Jon is one of the only characters that would actually rule honorably and with the intentions of doing what is best for his people.

My House: House of Stark

Reasons why: I am honest to the point of being very Blunt about things and that is sometimes the reason I get into trouble with others! Perseverance is what I do best. I have been kicked and knocked down so many times, but yet I have never given up. I will stand behind and fight for anyone that I believe as my family and it doesn't matter what it will cost me or how far away they are from me. If anyone knows me very well at all, they will say YES this is definitely KSIfiremomma7. 

who I think will finally claim the Iron Throne: It will be a fight to the end and from what I understand only one will win and I haven't figured it out for 100% but no matter what only one will hold the throne. But if I have to choose now I would say Jon is the choice person for the throne. Only time will tell!
