The gifts had run dry. I had expected as much. There is only so much one person could do in the end, and I had given it my best. Nineteen days of Advent Celebration; not bad for someone who really had no interest in Christmas.
I had asked for help, and some fellow Capsuleers had stepped up and made great donations towards the festivities; that was what started me on this pursuit of “Christmas Spirit” in the first place.
Ah well, I thought to myself. I really didn’t expect it to go any other way.
I had to admit one thing I had come to appreciate was the taste of egg nog; what a delicious drink.
“Scuse me, Colonel, but I hear you’re in need of Advent donations still. Is that correct, sir?” I turned my attention to the pilot before me.
“It is, but I had just resigned myself to the conclusion that Christmas was meaningless, and inherently folks are selfish bastards any time of year.” I smiled coyly.
The pilot replied by showing me a digital contract made out to me. A fully fit T2 Hulk had been donated to the celebration.
It was quite the donation. I felt humbled and a little embarrassed for having reacted so sarcastically.
“Thank you, pilot. This is very much appreciated.”
We saluted each other before taking our leave, I finished my egg nog, then I headed down to my flight deck to look into how I was going to get this Exhumer sitting in Amarr high sec into my hangar bay.
At least the donating pilot knew how to make things fun.
ADVENT DAY 20
PRIZE: Fully T2 fit Hulk
TASK: Sadly, we’re almost out of prizes. Today’s task is really going to put Christmas spirit to the test. Today you’re going to donate something to this contest. Should be interesting to see how few entries there are.
List your donation in the comments below, or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The selected winner will need to contract their donation to me ingame, if applicable. Remember, it doesn’t have to be ingame items, it can be any use of your talents that you wish. Ideas:
– Christmas Eve phone call
– Short story written about that day’s winner
– etc, etc
I will post today’s winner at 10 PM EST.
Um, wow! I really don’t know what to do at this point! So many gifts! Screw it! Let’s do this up right, pilots! All donations are welcome and accepted. These coming final three days of advent are going to be something intense!!!
The winner of today’s fully fit T2 Hulk is Edema.
Additionally, today’s winner of the unannounced Republic Fleet Firetail I am giving away is DarkCoro
And finally, today’s winner of 50 million ISK, also unannounced and from yours truly, is Weslon.
I am literally overwhelmed with gratitude to each and every one of you!
