[Numbunny saw Paprika and Ginkgo hiking in the distance.. as well as Sunshower, measuring the weather!]

Okay, so last month was.. not a good idea. Paprika liked both sides.
There's just no way! How could he pick between science or mysteries?!
It's like.. all the goodness of concrete information on one side..
And all of life's intrigues on the other!

Heck, sometimes you use science to figure out or discover mysteries!
....Haa, maybe this was getting too much. It's not as if this year was going well for him..
Perhaps he needed a different hobby...

Although most of his work seemed to be interacting with other Paralogos..
And then discussing it with Thomas.. reporting on intraspecies dynamics..
His attempts at getting popular and starting the latest hypes was exactly what the researcher wanted..

...Hmm, was this year of competitions maybe just.. a rebellious streak towards his so-called job?

The Year of Competitions:
Work vs Hobbies

How do your characters stand when it comes to matters of work? Do they enjoy the job they're doing?
It's true that many Paralogos simply like doing jobs that entails their word focus..

But perhaps others are forced into doing what they have to do, and prefer to do something for themselves.
Are their hobbies more important? Perhaps completely unrelated to their word focus!

And while we're on the subject! Paralogos aren't the only creatures on the World of Lingua!
Do your Whifflings have a job? Or perhaps they are more intrigued by their hobbies?

Perhaps the best thing is if you make your hobby your work.
But whether or not your characters have decided to do so...
... it is up to you!

Hold up, there's more to this:

By sending in a prompt submission for a side on any of the Year of Competitions prompts, you are locked in for said side.
While you're still allowed to display characters from the other side, your prompt submissions are not allowed to be for the other side.
You are, simply put, only allowed to join one side of the debate each month, as there is a little bonus for the winning side!
