    Came to Australia on Nov 28, file in hand . . . the holiday house internet went splat pretty much as soon as we arrived, and is still splatted.

    Two to three entries is about on par with the other contests though . . . enough to keep things ticking over.

    looking forward to reading the entries :)

    I'm surprised with the interest shown and the extended time that there weren't more entries. :( This is such a great writing challenge.

    Masks By Renjishi


    And the results are as follows

    As you can see it was pretty close for second and third place but there was one clear winner and that was

    Trigger by The Face

    I'll send the details onto NYC and she'll get your colours turned on as soon as she can.


    A big thank you top all involved from the Writers to the Judges (Healer Leona and JadeSolo).

    :eek:


    Wow, thanks so much! I've never had colors before. How exactly does that work (i.e. do I PM NYC with my color choices or does she just bless me with something cool or what?)?


    Congratulations to everyone who put something together; it's not easy to put something together at this time of year, especially not entries that all received such high marks. =D= Great job; I look forward to reading them. :D

    Thanks to Master-FatBurt for running this, and all who helped. It was fun.

    Oh, yeah! Results!

    First I'd like to say congratulatios to The_Face , second I'm very eager to read my competetor's entries, and third, would the judges care to elaborate more on their feelings for each story? What I enjoyed most about the summer contest was that each judge went into detail on the entries.
