I'm back now. :)


Just to let you guys know how I'm doing this:

I've built up a list of entries, with some entries listed multiple times based on the 'bonus points' structure I mentioned in the rules. For one free copy I'm going to roll the random number generator across that list and pick somebody based totally on chance. So all those extra posts and pictures and things really will boost your chances for that call, without you having to worry about whether your story was the best ever or not. :)

After that I'm going to hand-pick a few awards based on my own reactions to the stories.

You'll be hearing from me soon!

The randomly chosen result...

Okay, for real this time.

Please don't feel that your story or art is 'worse' than the winners if you weren't picked; I really do these contests more for fun than any kind of artistic judgment. (And really it's always a pain picking between people because people have different kinds of talents.) I hope you enjoyed writing your entries, and maybe will be inclined to write more later!

Although probably with different characters, since once you've played the real game you'll have more idea of what's "normal" in the game universe... that's why it didn't matter if it matched the game at all or not, since most people entering HAVEN'T played it yet. :)


Anyway, on with the announcements.


'Luck Of The Dice' award goes to:

MusicDreams!




'Drama' award goes to:

Yumeshojo!




'Patience' award goes to:

SabbyCchuu!



Thank you all so much for participating! :)
