Title: Winners and Stories
Post by: xiagan on May 05, 2015, 09:01:07 PM
I thought it would be cool to have a place where all the winners and their stories are represented.

I started with the Month I nearly won with a poem. (Okay, it's the month the publishing on the main page started and that may be the real reason. ;))

Bold theme = already published on the main site

This is awesome!  Thanks.

Suggest making this a sticky topic.
Title: Re: Winners and Stories
Post by: Carter on May 05, 2015, 10:11:12 PM
This was a great idea.  It's also a bit strange looking back at this and realising just how many short stories I've posted here since I discovered the competition.

Thanks.

Post by: SJBudd on May 06, 2015, 01:46:41 PM
Good idea! We should have a vote for the ultimate short story from all the winning entries, but I imagine it would be impossible to pick out a favourite!
Title: Re: Winners and Stories
Post by: xiagan on May 23, 2015, 08:37:10 PM
Since the beginning of May a bunch of stories (all from 2014) got published on Fantasy Faction! :) Check the links in the first post. :)
Title: Re: Winners and Stories
Post by: ScarletBea on February 13, 2016, 02:56:14 PM
Note that we started (finally!) publishing again the winner stories on the main site!

The last one has been January 2015, but now we have March 2015 up :)
(note: there was a glitch - February will be there soon!)
Title: Re: Winners and Stories
Post by: xiagan on March 13, 2016, 01:20:10 PM
Updated! :)

And coincidentally (or not?) the next story is up on the main site!
"A Twist too Far" by Rukaio_Alter (see link above).

Hey @xiagan (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1148), can you also ask for someone to "advertise" it with a twitter on the main Fantasy-Faction account?
The latest ones didn't have anything...

(we're really demanding, aren't we? ;D)

I was going to say @Mr.J was also off the ball on the FF Writing Contest aacount ;) but I noticed he just tweeted about the Corpses theme - too bad the pinned one still mentions pirates :P

But @m3mnoch, you'll probably see a phantom mention from me :0

Yeah, and we're basically aligned now!
After a catch-up of over an year's worth of stories, we can go back to the 'once a month publish the previous winner on the main site' :D

FYI:
I stopped sending out the winning stories to be published until the forum is fixed and we can accept new members, as I feel that seeing the story on the main site is also a recruiting incentive.

When that's fixed, I'll send them all :)
