Congratulations to the winners!

I apologize for the wait; there was something wrong with one of the entries and unfortunately we had to disqualify it. 

 
1st Place Winner: PrincessAutumnArcher
Reconnaissance (PrussiaxReader) [DRABBLE]{Resurface}
    The coffeeshop door chimed open, you glanced up, and suddenly you were sixteen again—young, naïve, and reckless, falling into striking claret eyes without any care in the world. A ghost of his voice, half memory and all low, sultry contentment, curled up your spine and settled in your skull, warm and quiet:
    “Lieblingsmensch…
    That whisper was all it took; memories bubbled to the surface of your mind, flashes of the past bursting before you in vivid color and sound. And then Gilbert turned away, silvery hair gleaming as your shared gaze was broken, and you sat alone once again.
{Satisfied, from Hamilton by Lin Manuel Miranda}
    The chandelier threw glittering sparks over everything; you should have seen your fall in how Gilbert’s hair glinted icy, perfect platinum, in the illuminated sanguine depths of his eyes. Y

THIS. WAS. REALLY. WELL. WRITTEN. No joke about that- we absolutely loved how you portrayed Prussia's and the Reader's relationship. We could literally feel the emotion you poured in every single word.

Levi x Reader - Don't Ever Let It EndAs your fingers flew across the keyboard, your attention was on your colleague. When he ran his hands through his hair, you shivered involuntarily. Anything Levi did turned you into a mess.
But once this project was over, you would never see him, let alone work with him. Your throat constricted and you blinked back tears. Catching your reaction, Levi’s eyes darted to your face and you hurriedly faked a smile. His lips curled upwards in a smile that tugged at your heartstrings.
It was small moments like this that you would engrave in your memory forever.
God, please…
…don’t ever let it end.
Erwin x Reader - PrisonSome laughed and ridiculed me. Others said I was kind, loyal… The truth is I’m tired.
I pity myself for being a prisoner, a caregiver. Sometimes I wish he had died. But that would be evil of me. I hate myself for that.
Then there are days that I remember us from before the car accident. And I cry knowing those days are gone.
But when I’m about to give up, you turn to me and smile. You call my name in that sweet baritone voice and I forget everything. Because in that moment, Erwin, everything is worth it.
Levi x Reader - FortressAs she swept the broken glass shards, her bruised knee scraped the ground. The biting pain didn’t bother her as much as the fear that he would come home drunk again – the cycle of abuse picking up once more.
“Mum, your medicine.”
Turning around, she smiled at the raven-haired boy. Looking at his concerned expression, the tremor in her hands ceased and she lovingly caressed his cheek.
You’re my medicine, Levi. Knowing that you’re here, I can take the burden of everything. Even if it means doing battle with the devil, I’ll do whatever it takes to keep you safe.

These are very sweet entries; we love your writing style!! (The Erwin drabble was one of our favorites.)

Twist of Silver :Pirate Lord!China x Lady!Reader:Twist of Silver Threads
: Pirate Lord!China  x Lady!Reader:
(CHAPTER 1)
The Voice in the Night—(Prison)
Nihao, girl,”
Those were the words she remembered spilling from his lips when she boarded his ship. They were words that burned within her very being, along with the pair of arms wrapped firmly around her waist with a surprising gentleness she never imagined for a pirate lord—or any pirate for that matter— to possess.
And yet, even at her most disoriented state, (Name) felt nothing more than a seething hatred for the man who dared snatch her away from her home. Even as the pirate lord provided her with the comfort befitting queens, (Name) felt like a prisoner.
Rebel Spirit—(Sea)
Yao was no ordinary pirate, (Name) knew that much. He was just as commanding and ruthless as the stories described him to be. And despite the pirate lord’s attempts in making her feel comfortable and valued, (Name) feared this man with each

: Pirate Lord!China  x Lady!Reader:
(CHAPTER 2)
Night of a Thousand Stars—(It’s Not for Me to Say: Johnny Matthias)
“You seemed troubled,” Yao spoke solemnly.
Even when the deck was illuminated by a few lanterns, he noticed her lithe arms wrapping around her shaking form. The tears slid down her flushed cheeks and Yao would have brushed them away if she allowed him to. As much as he wanted to console the poor girl, Yao couldn’t help but feel an inexplicable pang of hurt in his chest because he felt so helpless for letting her down.
And while the pirate lord silently bemoaned over his frustrations, he never anticipated a response articulated with such chilling desperation:
“Please help me,”
Turning the Tides—(Acceptance)
“Why did you choose to be a pirate lord, Yao?”
“For all the reasons men desire in this world, my dear.” Yao breathed. “But I merely desired for a mom

: Pirate Lord!China x Lady! Reader:
(Chapter 3)
In Danger’s Way—(Emerald)
“Is that a girl I see in your arms, Yao? What a pretty thing to catch in the waters, aye?”
Yao held (Name) against his chest tightly as if he wanted to shield her away from the stranger’s glinting emerald gaze. The girl didn’t know of the horrors that Arthur Kirkland committed in the high seas, and Yao was most unfortunate to come across his ship once more.
“You do not belong here, Arthur!” Yao snarled.
“Alas I do,” Arthur interjected smugly. “Anyone who dares to cross my waters knows of the consequences…and you and the poppet are no exceptions,”
When Extremities Meet—(Bullet)
The tension was stifling.
But as (Name) remained guarded by the pirate lord’s arms, she couldn’t suppress the foreboding wave of fear rising from the pit of her stomach. Yao’s pulse thundered against hi

Hi! I just wanted to ask about the contest results–it's been nearly three months and I really don't mean to be rude, but I'm just curious about the results. How is the judging coming along? Will the results be announced soon?
Clemetiime's avatar
Since I'm working with two other judges to look over the entries, it's taking some time!
We are planning on announcing the results by next week.
ileanawhiteshade912's avatar
Ah, I understand, that's perfectly fine! Thank you for replying, and sorry if I sounded rude up there!
Clemetiime's avatar
No need to worry! I'm very sorry for the late reply.
We have finalized the winners and are looking it over; we'll post later today (December 4, 2016 Around (UTC) 11PM)!

One of our judges as well as prize donor went MIA for quite a long time...so we're in a pickle. If they're not back by the time we arranged to announce...we'll remove their prize they offered and submit in the results.

Though if the winner(s) would want that specific prize, they can contact the judge who went MIA to get that reward! I can't get into contact with them...

I'm not sure if someone already asked this, but since drabbles are so short, could I just submit them all in one deviation? (Even if they're unrelated?)
Clemetiime's avatar
Yep, it was already asked. No worries--
Drabbles can be placed in one deviation. They do not have to be related. > w <)b
WindMeister8's avatar

Is it alright if I partake in this contest?
I love contests like these, since they always help my imagination and they always pose as a slight challenge since they've got a word limit. :D
Also, I just want to make sure; can I use a song I've chosen or does it have to be from the song list? :)
Clemetiime's avatar
Anyone can partake in the contest! xD
You can use any song you've chosen. It doesn't have to be from the song list.
LadyCookieCupcake's avatar
Alright! Thank you :D
And thank you again. That's pretty relieving. xD Meow :3
