| Winner: [NOOOPE] - The Mailbox:|
There once lived this guy named Chuck. Chuck was a crazy reclusive type who lived in the middle of a forested island with 12 chickens who he once banked on being his emergency food. Luckily for the birds, they had all grown quiet fond of each other over the years and Chuck regarded them as family. After his monthly voyage inland for supplies, he’d make himself a fresh sandwich and sit atop his chicken coop, his poultry gathered at his feet. He’d give them voices, speaking subtly out of the corner of his mouth and discuss a variety of things. The weird dead fish he saw on the beach yesterday, Plato’s Republic... In his imaginary world, he was the voice of reason. He was the chicken king and as ridiculous as that may sound to you, he thought it was pretty sweet.

2008-05-26 [Chimes]: Is it only one entry per person?
2008-05-26 [SilverFire]: hmm, I think one text entry and one poetry entry would be fine, but not two poems, or two stories. :)
2008-05-27 [Chimes]: That's fair. *rubs hands together in a plot-like way* Thank you. :D
2008-05-27 [Imperator]: lol, it's in the rules above.
2008-05-27 [SilverFire]: I added to the rules because she asked. It wasn't there when she asked.
2008-05-27 [Imperator]: lol, I feel dumb now...
2008-05-28 [Chimes]: Seeeee, I'm not silly. Well... that's debateable...
2008-05-30 [Duke Devlin]: Very debatable. ;)
2008-06-03 [Alexi Ice]: This contest is awesome.
2008-07-14 [shirono]: Would you say that vampires fall under the realm of the theme?
2008-07-14 [SilverFire]: It depends what you write about vampires. ;) We already have one entry up that involves vampires, and they're performing magic, so it fits the theme. But, say, just a description of a vampire wouldn't fit the theme.
2008-07-14 [Alexi Ice]: Yeah, vampires are typically connceted to magic in many differnt ways, so it shoulden't be hard to fit them into the theme ^^ lol.
2008-07-14 [shirono]: Thanks, I'm not sure if the story I have written will work as is, but it shouldn't hard to do a bit of a re-write to make it fit the theme...it kinda needed a re-write either.
2008-07-14 [Chimes]: Dukey, hurry up and enter! :P
This contest will be hard to judge, I don't envy the judges.
2008-07-14 [SilverFire]: Well if you submit it, I'll tell you if it fits or not. :)
2008-07-14 [shirono]: I'll submit as soon as I can do some editing on it, I was tired when I wrote it and there are definitely some sections that need to be gone back over. I would have done it last night, but the power went out in my neighborhood..
2008-07-15 [Alexi Ice]: Neat, I would love to read another story about vampires to do some comparing! ^^
2008-07-15 [shirono]: I will have the story posted by next Monday, unfortunately I'll be gone on a family trip from Tuesday till Saturday. The only good news about this is having time to catch up on reading and finish editing a few stories.
Mitsuki- I loved your story! I'll be happy to compare notes anytime, though Vampire stories aren't my number 1 writing favorite....
2008-07-15 [Duke Devlin]: Shhhh Memz... D: I am slow~~~ *mumbles & mutters* Besides, I'm needing some inspiration. D: *runs away to hand out CVs, do other shite, come home & read some of your writing, and start her own* ^^ <3
2008-07-15 [Chimes]: Oh, if only you knew Stephy-darling
2008-07-15 [Duke Devlin]: :O If only I knew!? D: The nift-tastic story you sent me? <3<3<3 :)
2008-07-15 [Chimes]: Yes. That'll be it. ^^
2008-07-15 [Duke Devlin]: Cooool. :D Well spiffy of you, deary. <3
2008-07-15 [Alexi Ice]: Totally ^^ I cant find many people who write about vampires, they are complicated creatures indeed! And thank you! I can't wait to read your story!!
2008-07-15 [Chimes]: I write about vampires :D Not for this contest though... for this contest I wrote of a memory. ^^
2008-07-15 [Alexi Ice]: I havent had time to read anyone elses ^^ I will get around to it eventually though. lol.
2008-07-24 [shirono]: Unfortunately I haven't had the time to work on anything, I'm being crushed under a load of SAT prep work and the first test isn't even until October. Maybe I'll be able to participate in the next contest....
2008-07-25 [playslashwrite]: i want to write, i have an idea laid out already and all i have to do is sit and type it.. but my graduation is a priority so i cant really take up another new project until im done with that :S
2008-08-18 [Tingis]: When will there be a winner announced?
2008-08-18 [SilverFire]: See the Main Street poll? That's for the fairy competition. After it has enough voters, the winners can be announced for that contest. Then we have to have a poll for the magic art contest and another poll for the magic photo contest. And then the winners for all three contests (art, photo, writing) are announced together.
2008-08-18 [Alexi Ice]: Will ours be announced early, even though the veterans got an extension? OR will ours be announced in September like theirs?
2008-08-18 [SilverFire]: Nah, newbie and veterans will be handled separately. :)
2008-08-18 [Alexi Ice]: Oh! Cool ^^
2008-08-19 [Tingis]: okay i'm excited :)
