Congratulations to everyone who entered. As already stated, I enjoyed all the stories and thought the 500 word limit was a definite spur for creativity. Also, thanks to everyone who took the time to comment on my story, and thank you to Cryo and the other judges for their time and effort in running the tournament.

Thank you Grin

But, er, passing of the sword sounds dastardly uncomfortable! Maybe you should just hand it to me. Tongue

First off, a big thanks to everyone else that contributed stories. Smile This was perhaps the best writing competition thus far, and I'm looking forward to the next one already!

And secondly, a tip of the hat to Cathy. I truly enjoyed your piece, and can see why it easily swept the others away. Bravo.

Finally, I would like to give a shout-out to my old pal Darkynd, who's valiant (if futile) attempt at ripping second place from my hands did not go unnoticed. Wink Tongue

Curses! I was only a few points from winning the last one, and only two points from getting second this time. The scoring system is rigged! Rigged I tell you! Tongue

In other news, congrats to Cathy on winning the tournament. It was definitely a good story.

All times are
