And I forgot to vote....
Forgot?
Forgot?
After my ten million reminders?

*shakes head*
The chilli went to your brain - go vote in the Rogues stories then, you've got about 1 hour :P ;D

Already did, like when it first came online! But now I need to go read the Plot Twist stories, seeing as I have the time.

Congratulations @ladygreen, we've never met here but I loved your story and am so pleased you have won. :)

Well done ladygreen.  An excellent story that, for me, stays long in the memory.

Well done to Ladygreen! I remember reading 'Artisan's Mask' last May when I first entered the writing contest, and being massively impressed with how she managed to put so much story into 1500 words.

Jmack, I have to mention 'Wardu's Wager' as well. For me, it's a perfect example of how I'd like to be able to write, and I've come back to read it several times for inspiration.

And well done everyone else.

Hi everyone!  Thank you so much for choosing my story!  I was so surprised and happy to hear the news!  Sorry I've been MIA lately - my life has exploded all over the place, but I promise to come back soon and try my hand at a few more stories.  Thanks again for making a normal girl feel pretty special.  ;D
