The deadline has passed and the time has come to vote. Because we once again have so many great entries, I've included an honorable mention line so you can vote for two of your favorite stories. >:-P~~~~

I'd like to take a moment and welcome Mara Jade Skywalker and Angylkat to this, their first contest. Your entries were moist excellent and I hope this isn't the only time you enter a contest.

Looking ahead, we know what the next contest will be but I wanted to float out a test balloon for the one after that, which is at least two weeks away. What do you guys think of the idea of a poetry writing contest? Would enough of you enter to make it worth doing? :P

I'd jump at a poetry contest. Of course, when I show anything I write to my friends, it's a 'song.' ;) Don't tell 'em.

As for the contest:

1st place goes to Copper in "Now You're Alive," for excellent form, the most description, a great plot, and all that other writer-stuff that makes a story win 1st place.

2nd goes to LadyGuinevere in "Lullabye Bay," for creating the most emotion and making me want to hunt down a bad father and shoot him in the back of the head with his own vodka bottle.

...I have an odd feeling that this contest might turn out just like the last one. Possibly even worse. I'm betting that we've got at least two ties by the end of it.

I will do poetry. I have been a total slack-ass lately, and need to get writing again.

Hey, Dex, how come you're not in the best story catagory? This wasn't officially your contest (it was Copper's and KFJ's), so you should have a shot at "best" too.

P.O. Boxes are great things for that. It could be sent under your father's name.

Just a thought. :D

I planned on reading all of these but I never got around to it, so I'm just voting based on who I like the most right now.

I voted. I went with Doomtrain's. It was such a refreshing change, and he executed the theme very well.


edit: I'm certainly down for a poetry contest. But I'm sure my whole thread will consist of, "I don't get it," because of how I write my poetry :lol:

Poetry? ... Defently :) My poetry skills are quite original scoolgirl type, and I have no chance of winning... but I think it will be fun ... and it won't take as long to write ;).

By the way, I forgot to mention it but I'll be asking Mara to run an alias check on this voting when it's over so, as always, one vote per customer. :D

Speaking of which, Mara asked about the voting deadline. I also forgot to mention when that was, so let's make it 48 hours after this thread was posted. Since a lot of these stories were posted early I think that's plenty of time to catch up on your reading and to vote.

Hey, Dex, how come you're not in the best story catagory?


Opps! I guess I forgot to include my story for the first category. Darn it! ;)

That's a little unfair don't you think? You have plenty of time to read them and vote for the story you like, so why not do that? Or don't vote at all. This isn't a popularity contest.

the funniest part about the whole thing is that he took the time to select the "thumbsdown" icon in the subject of his post.

very thorough.

I had intentions of entering this contest, unfortunately a busy real life got in the way.

A poetry contest would be super! :D Though I don't have the talent for it, I have come to enjoy writing poetry and already have a number written that I can choose from...or write another.

Yeah, I'm thorough, Erika. Thorough enough to read the stories up for votes so that I know which one to vote for.

Try it some time before you critisize me.

Although I haven't had time to post written feedback for every entry, I would just like to say that I enjoyed reading every one of them.

Job well done. :thumbsup:

Finally got the chance to go through all the threads properly, nicely in time for the deadline :) I did think was a very tough decision. I changed my mind several times on where my votes were going!

A poetry contest sounds like a really good idea, though I doubt I'll enter, as it's really not my medium. It would be nice to see a contest for a different writing skill though :thumbsup:
