Superfans and the Golden Ticket factor

So I was watching Food Network last night again. I know I know . . . quit with the Food Network already, Friendly! But they had this great Food Network Challenge episode where four chefs/bakers/artists had to make this elaborate cake that feeds over 150 people (or is it 250? no matter), and it's done with a theme in mind. So last night the theme was The Simpsons. The Simpsons was celebrating their 20 year anniversary (wow) and they needed a cake. One of the catches to making this cake was that the bakers/artists needed to take along with them a Simpson's Superfan instead of their usual assistant. Also helping judge the contest was Yeardley Smith, the voice of Lisa Simpson.

So, for a fan of the Simpsons, this would have been a really freaking cool moment, right? You're on TV, being filmed, while helping make a cake for the show you love and in the same room as Yeardley Smith. "SQUEE!" says the superfan!

Now I don't think this would ever happen on the Food Network (you must craft a cake of Malistaire . . . go!), but could you imagine a Wizard101 Superfan moment like that? What do you think that would be like? For instance, what if Kingsisle decided to ship four Superfans down to their offices to meet the staff and to participate in some kind of a contest that's judged by Professor Greyrose. . . . like a total Charlie and the Chocolate Factory moment, right?



Only, I've seen video of Kingsisle's Offices, and there's definitely no chocolate river . . . ;-) But looking over the shoulder of a designer while they construct a new world would be AWESOMENESS!

So, say Kingsisle asked you to show exactly how superfan you are and to send in some kind of submission to them in order to win some kind of contest that involved a trip to KI: what would you do to show how superfan you really are? Would you use your talents in some creative way? What would you do or make or show?

Interested to see the responses!

Happy Dueling!

I would battle every single boss in Wizard 101, nonstop (except maybe bathroom breaks) and no help. And hypercam the whole thing :D

In the contest, they mean the KI place in Plano, Texas, right?
