"The Great Gormball Gala" by juggal3tt3j
Prince_Hailstorm and M0n0xid3 were enjoying the cool breeze by the water and relaxing to the sounds of chirping Pteris nearby. The heat of the summer had been unbearable, always feeling like you were in the Lost Desert, so the breeze was most welcomed. The friends had decided to take advantage of the break in the weather to go fishing, which mainly involved sipping cool lemonade, talking, and being generally lazy on the riverbank. Hail and M0n0 had a great friendship- they understood the balance between having fun as well as being able to spend time in each other’s company in silence while they pondered their own thoughts. M0n0 broke their current silence, "Do you know the Annual Gormball Championships are coming up? I’d sort of like to go watch them; I haven’t played since I got the avatar so it’d be fun for old time’s sake." "Oh yes, that would be fun! When I was playing for the avatar I’d started collecting statistics concerning the probability of the Gormball exploding and its correlation to the elapsed time in that round. I could increase my data sets much easier by watching- it was very difficult to play and take notes at the same time!" Hail responded enthusiastically, excited by the possibility of getting more reliable results for his data. "I can only imagine how hard that would be! I was trying to find a formula for game play myself, but I’d lose track every time I got the Steel Gormball, you know how easily I lose focus! Anyway, it was so frustrating to see so many points lost at once! Then when I finally got the avatar and a trophy I forgot all about finding a formula. It was so exciting! I knew the Gormball would normally explode anywhere between 4 and 15 seconds, so in order to maximize the chances of getting the bonus Gormballs I would only hold it for 1 second on my turn. I ended up with a few pink Gormballs worth between 1 and 6 points, an electric Gormball worth 22 points, a space Gormball worth 26 points….and I almost lost all of my chill when I got a fire Gormball worth 30 points! I was sure I’d end up losing and not getting the times 4 bonus for winning, but I won!
