Hello, everyone! spaceflip here.

The final round of our tournament has come to a close. The winner is chosen.

I want to thank everyone who's had even a tiny part in the tournament, whether it be those who auditioned, gained entry, or even spectated. It's been a pleasure to see such a terrific community surrounding this group.

Now, the judging.

Both entries surpassed what I had expected. Both wrapped up and explained every bit and detail in the scraps of story I set up for you. Neither was predictable and neither disappointed for a second. Choosing the better of them hasn't been easy, and it actually hurts to have to pick one as best.

Entry after entry, clickmon built up surprises and plots that kept a level of interest which only escalated this round. She kept us emotionally invested in just about everyone, which made any move any character made all the more important to us.

Some scenes in her entry were so well orchestrated that I got choked up over just how good they were, even when they weren't sad in the slightest. As a whole, it had great balance. Never too happy or sad, not too light or dark.

demjay's was also fantastic, however. It told an amazing story, finally letting us know Jay's past, who he is, and just what he's capable of. He's been a character interesting in just how hard he was to figure out this entire time. This entry linked together his and Madalyn's paths with a big twist and it never backed down.

The events in the tale demjay told are haunting and strong.

Neither of these rounds let up enough for me to pick a winner and keep a clear conscience about it. I read back through both finalists' entire Wisp experiences as a tiebreaker.

The victory goes to clickmon


Her entries kept giving substantial pieces of plot round after round. This was the only thing I felt demjay's lacked.

It's been a long journey, and it's now over. Thank you to everyone. It's been more than I had ever hoped for.

Now, as for prizes! Here's a list of the prizes, once again, with the recipient of them by the place.

I'm gonna try and get Freyr's ending done before round 2 ends, even though I'm not on the clock anymore. :P

Oi', I've been attempting to come up with a decent 1-2 page SE for WISP that involves a few (maybe 5-6 at the absolute maximum) characters that were not accepted into WISP. Could anyone be so kind as to direct me to their own or someone they know's ref sheet seeing as though most were removed to reduce confusion as to who entered. I'm having a hard time sorting through the user names of the 90-some odd members lol.

Thanks in advance hopefully!

Lol, hopefully it won't be as disappointing as the audition! That was a bit rushed. This one will have effort (if all goes well)! I'm also gonna have a few appearances of current competitors, but not really interactions per say.
