Of course. :D

Feel free to talk about your entries, the entries you loved, etc.

Also, I'll ask a SuperMod to move the entries to SYW, so they'll be under password protection. Some of the stories could be polished for submission, I think. ;)

It was my pleasure. :)

And I'll do my very best to enjoy my vacation. ;) In fact, it's almost 1:00am and I have to leave for the airport early tomorrow morning. So, I should go to bed. :e2yawn:

Congrats again to Kitty Pryde, legendary bum, and swachski. :e2woo:

Yay! I came in 6th place. That's not too shabby. I guess I can write. Tee hee. Does anyone know the password for the contest entries string? I'm not able to place the titles with the stories and I'd like to read them again. :)

It's funny, I always feel bad for the athletes that come in fourth at the Olympics. They've worked so hard and come soooo close to bringing back a prize, just narrowly missing it.

But now that it's happened to me, I'm thrilled. Maybe because when I first read Smish's list and saw the 29 next to my story, I thought I'd come in 29th. And then I remembered - there were only 25 entries.

Thanks to everyone who voted for Revenge of the Shunned. I've never written a complete story with so few words, and that was a fun challenge.

Thanks again, everyone. I'm so glad my story was well liked, but some of the scores were so close that quite a few of the others could have easily won. I'm looking forward to seeing who wrote what, and letting them know what I liked about them.

I hope Smish got off to a good start this morning! Without a "present" from her cat. :D

The stories were great fun to read and tricky to vote for just three.
Congrats to everyone!
