IMO that's why TheHybrid was over on words he added content and flavor. His story was a much better read. Mine was kinda dry and Wiki like.

As long as he keeps his beta slot then I guess its cool. Maybe he will let me be his wingman in beta. I can ram with the best of em.
Just out of interest, did you save the "original" version of the entry, i'd love to read the full, perhaps just to compare it with TheHybrids on a fair basis =]

Congratulations by the way, you certainly make a good second winner, no doubt.

No I don't have it. Unfortunately I do my editing on the fly so it was always changing. There were no "copies per say just one work that changed until the final version emerged.

But I can say that the flavor elements of my story were not as good as Thehybrids. He would have won the thing for sure if my "original" were compared to his winning entry. At least I think so. I have always been better at getting an original or unique idea down on paper then i have been at telling a good story.

It appears as though all contest winners now have a title:

Thalasi
Great Explorer!

This is good news - I wonder if runners up get the same titles as the winners.
