In near-record time, my judges returned their results before the weekend got far underway!

And before I reveal the winners, some fun facts about this contest:

  • Judges came from two countries (the US and UK).
  • With a total possible score of 160 points, only 0.5 points separated first place from second place, and less than 30 points separated first place from tenth place.
  • All five English-speaking oceans are represented in the top 6 places.
  • Cobalt had the most prize winners (4 out of 15).


The most popular stories uncovered:
  • A sleep-deprived Hypnos
  • Nemesis enjoying cute cuddlies
  • Familiars causing trouble
  • Various stories about Apollo

The complete album of entries can be seen here. Though you see the names of the folks who created the entries, judges did not.

Also, Webshots didn't like .gif files as much as I did, so entries that were submitted in .gif format had to be converted to bitmaps in order to be put in the entry album.

Many more than two entries cracked me up. Pretty much all of the winners - and even a few of the entries that didn't place - had me laughing.

After destroying two keyboards, though, I just finally had to remove all liquids from the area of my computer while sorting entries to keep myself from completely destroying the whole computer.

Thanks much Fava!
These were some great entries.
One little problem...

Apollo, I can't find my prize.
You listed my house as being on Greenwich but Willhelmina only has a cottage on Admiral. I have one alt who has a shack on Greenwich but the prize wasn't there either. So, either I'm being blind or confused about how this works (entirely possible) or the prize ended up in someone else's house.
Is there some way for me to get it still or is it gone forever?

Thank you!

No, it's on Greenwich - you have a shack there.

*blushes*
For some bizarre reason I thought that you couldn't own houses on more than one island and that when I bought the cottage that shack was reclaimed. I had completely forgotten that Willhelmina ever even had a building on Greenwich.
*rolls eyes at self*
Sorry for the confusion.
Thanks again Apollo and Fava!
