Power of Veto #8

Power of Veto #8
A Current Affair


Calypso is remembered most for her role in Homer's Odyssey, in which she keeps the fabled Greek hero Odysseus on her island to make him her immortal husband. According to Homer, Calypso kept Odysseus prisoner at Ogygia for seven years. Calypso enchants Odysseus with her singing as she strolls to and fro across her weaving loom, with a golden shuttle. During this time they sleep together, although Odysseus soon comes to wish for circumstances to change. Odysseus cannot be away from his wife Penelope any longer and wants to go to Calypso to tell her. His patron goddess Athena asks Zeus to order the release of Odysseus from the island, and Zeus orders the messenger Hermes, to tell Calypso to set Odysseus free, for it was not his destiny to live with her forever. She angrily comments on how the gods hate for goddesses to have affairs with mortals, but eventually concedes, sending Odysseus on his way after providing him with wine, bread, and the provisions to build a small raft.
For this challenge, it is time to switch things up. You will be cheating on your partner this weekend. Each of you must find one player on IMDb that is not involved in this game as a former player and have them private message my account a total of five times. However, there are certain stipulations.

PM #1 - Sent by you - timestamp ends at :06
PM #2 - Sent by your player - timestamp ends at :12
PM #3 - Sent by you - timestamp ends at :18
PM #4 - Sent by your player - timestamp ends at :24
PM #5 - Sent by you - timestamp ends at :30
PM #6 - Sent by your player - timestamp ends at :36
PM #7 - Sent by you - timestamp ends at :42
PM #8 - Sent by your player - timestamp ends at :48
PM #9 - Sent by you - timestamp ends at :54
PM #10 - Sent by your player - timestamp ends at :00

Your first PM must be titled "PM #1 - [insert name here]", your partner's next PM must be titled "PM #2 - [insert veto name here]", etc all the way until you get to the final one. So if I choose xSayVogue as my partner, I would have my PM titled "PM #1 - sourxgumxrocks", her first PM to me would be "PM #2 - sourxgumxrocks", etc. They cannot submit for multiple people. This means xSayVogue cannot send for kyogre123 if she is sending for me already.

If there is a mess-up, don't worry about it. For each second you are off, you will lose a point. Just keep continuing though. Don't go back and fix it. Just continue as normal. At the end of all ten pms, the player with the lowest score will win the power of veto. In the event of a tie for lowest score, the player who finished the fastest will win. If that somehow ties, I will look at your in-game partner's score, and so on. 

If it continues to be a tie, there will be a tiebreaker on Saturday sometime. You have 24 hours to complete this. You can only try once. If you mess up your titles, you are disqualified from the competition. Any questions?

Mikey/Mark - 06.13.18.24.30.36.42.48.54.00
11:23:06 - 11:45:00 
Score: 1 (Time of 21:54)

Arik/Silas - DQ

Cindy/Dani - 03.35.17.22.31.50.43.48.54.58
13:21:03 - 14:09:58
Score: 44 (Time of 48:55)

Alexa/Borin - 06.12.18.24.30.36.42.49.54.01
20:23:06 - 20:28:01
Score: 2 (Time of 4:55)
 
Jimmy/right hand - DQ

Marie/Nat - DQ

Despite having a much faster time, Alexa/Borin failed to receive the smallest score and Mikey/Mark have won the power of veto! Congratulations. Mark must now post his decision on the thread or else the veto can't be used!
Just kidding <3
Please host the veto ceremony soon xoxo.

It helps having friends even if Nat and I totally fucked up. Will isn't on so replacement will be posted after work, unless he sees the message I left him. Good job, Mikey.

I get out at 7.

This replacement is a hard one with it only being between two teams.

one team put us up and one team has voted against us in the past.

but ultimately Jimmy/Alaina you have to go up next to Javi and Andre.

sorry guys.
