UFC2: One Shots -- The Winners!
Ultimate Fanfiction Contest Results!
The second Ultimate Fanfiction Contest has come to a close with many, many amazing entries and many wonderful participants! There was a lot to choose from, and I am grateful to have the help of joannastar and GaioumonBatou in judging them! Each judge chose five of their favorite pieces and assigned them numbers based on their most favorite (with grammar, spelling, storyline and general appeal being the criteria)--the points were then added up to a final total of points!
Without further ado, here are the long-awaited winners!
First Place: SailorAstera
Heart of Stone --

Prize: 20 deviantDOLLARS & 1-year premium membership!
Second Place: Dhampir72

Ultimate Fanfiction Contest: One-Shots
Write the best fanfiction short story!
It is that time of the year again. The time where fanfiction writers squeeze their brains and drain their inspiration to create a piece of fanfiction that is both well-written and a good story.
This fanfiction contest doesn't focus on word count so much as it does on skill, craft, and storytelling. The 'one-shot' is your chance to tell a story that is self-contained and can stand alone. There are no chapters, there are no sagas--one story.
:bulletred: Your piece must have 6,000 words or less. Please write it specifically for this contest--no old submissions!
:bulletred: Please check your spelling, your grammar, and make sure everything is tight and edited!
:bulletred: Anything goes, but please adhere to the deviantART policy as well as be respectful towards the fandom you are writing about.
:bulletred: You may choose ANY book/novel/TV show/Cartoon/Movie/Anime/Manga/Comic... you get it... as your topic!

Kay speared another rain-soaked chip on the end of her wooden fork, attempting to shake off some of the liquid before dropping it into her mouth. Licking the salt off her lips, she looked up. The ghost train in front of her ground to a halt, the rusting brakes screeching against the metal tracks. A teenage boy and girl stepped out of the car that was far too small for them, both were laughing hysterically.
   “Scary?” Kay asked, swallowing a greasy mouthful.
   “No, it was crap,” the boy smiled, taking a chip from the polystyrene tray.
   “Sam! Get your own!” Kay stabbed the fork into his arm.
   “Ivy,” Sam whined, “Kay stabbed me.” Ivy ignored him, pushing her damp fringe away from her eyes.
   It was only just starting to get dark but the combination of rain and neon lights made it feel a lot later. Bad dance-music remixes blared from each ride, combining in a

Three Words
Three Words.
She sits, silent.
The silence between us is so tangible that I could touch it if I tried – but my fingers are laced together in tense, white structures that mock the atmosphere of indifference that I’m trying to project. I haven’t said anything since those final, damning words that shattered her world. And neither has she.
Lips open, then close again. One strand of hair has fallen down across her face, and it’s then that I realise that she’s crying – tears streaming silently down her cheeks and splashing into her coffee. Automatically, I reach forward to wipe them away, before remembering that I gave away that right a long time ago. Instead, I take my coffee and take a long, hard draught that burns the back of my throat. I don’t wince.
“How long?”
”Does it matter?”
She falls silent again. An apology hovers on my lips – I didn’t need to sound so harsh, but, on the other hand, she won’t want kindnes

You know what I'm doing today? Writing Sailormoon fanfiction! :la: It really has been a while. The Forgotten Truth is a story that I started revising a few years ago, then completely forgot about (oh ho, "Forgot the Forgotten Truth!".  Maybe today I will actually post a new chapter?! :D It will go up on - haven't gotten around to posting this one on DA yet. But I should keep posting Flames of Burden even if only a few people catch it here. :D

I feels good to be writing again, even if it's just fanfic :3

EDIT: Posted. :iconohyeahplz:
