You and your loved one on Rubi-Ka are desperately looking for somewhere to call your own, a place of sanctity and peace, a place to have your friends over for tea or a place where you can be alone together?óÔé¼?ª Well look no further?óÔé¼?ª

The Rubi-Ka Marriage Registry and ARK Community Relations are proud to offer the two of you a chance of winning your very own Jobe Luxury Apartment and a grand party to celebrate the love on Rubi-Ka!

Spelling/Grammar errors will NOT be taken into account. It?óÔé¼Ôäós the best story that wins, not the best wording.

How to enter:

The winners will be contacted by the ARK Community Relations Weddings Team with instructions as to how to collect their winnings and to setup a meeting to discuss the details of the further happenings.

Happy writing!


* If the winners do not want an ARK playfield wedding, due to not having the SL expansion or friends not having this, a wedding can be held anywhere on Rubi-Ka within reason instead.

Not bad at all...

Pity about the "a brief statement that clearly allows ARK to use your story for publishing if we choose to" bit, it may just be me, but I'd like to chose whether my story can be used as FREE advertising by FC... Even if they gave me a small incentive like say a free month of AO as a 'author fee' or something...

But, that said...

Get writing all you love birds! (remember WORD has a spelling/grammar checker! lol)
Don't make me come in there and Moderate you!
