Congrats to the winners!

Whatever happens I sincerely hope they keep their winning positions, I think it'd be unfair to the winners to take it away from them after they've been told they've won.

An explanation as to the whole 300 words or less thing would also be nice though. Is it a rule we can flagrantly disregard in the next contest? can we write novellas next time? I'd much prefer to be able to stretch my fingers and give you several thousand words for the next one.

300 words or less is like trying to write haiku for me. :p

Like most here, I would like an explanation on the number of words!

Maybe I'm just a sore looser!

That story was amazing compared to mine. He probably spent a lot more time on it than I did.

I didn't notice the grammar, too... probably because the story was actually really interesting, and now it's got me wondering.

Kudos to Thehybrid for writing an awesome story.

I definitely took a slightly different approach with my entry, but the winning submission was great nonetheless! I, too, would like some kind of official clarification on the contest rules just as reference for future entries, though. Still, congratulations to the winner as well as the honorable mention!

Very good story. I regret making mine read like a wikipedia entry, instead of a compeling story.
