Yeah, Congrats guys.

And I think special congrats to Amadeus X. Machina, since I seem to recall that Meow Meow Bang Bang was trailing a bit as we started the last 24 hours of voting.

Huge applause and hugs all round, I think. :D

Oh, wow. I'm honored to be picked! T'was a blast, everyone, and special fistbumps to SpareInch and Lucy Jayne--I'd have been happy if either of you swept the Fantasy match. Your stories got my other votes. Great reads. :)

Way to go, everyone! I had a blast writing my entry and reading all the others, many of which are delightfully inappropriate for a bedtime story.

Heaps of praise to the winners! If I'm this dizzy with glee at the result I got, I hope our winners aren't operating heavy machinery for the next couple of days.

Yes, well done to everyone.

Also: thanks, SpareInch. It certainly was a close race over in the SF arena and there were some excellent stories that didn't end up winning.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to write and enter a story! It may be many years before I can read some of the darker ones to my kids. :)

I'm excited to hear the winners turned into audio productions, and to see one of the authors continue to the next phase of this project!
