We have our winners! Jonathan and I did the judging this afternoon and we have decided on one winner per genre and an overall winner from those three winners. The genre winners will each get a desktop background made by BushMaid and the overall winner will receive a paperback copy of A Mighty Fortress by Yours Truly.

Science Fiction

Caeli wrote:
“Welcome to our mystery,” the voice announced through the ship. The triangle windows filled with faces. Passengers peering into the universe while the voice directed their gaze. “Welcome to new life.” The dead planet below sparked and glimmered. “And the first successful terraforming.” The planet glowed and the voice rose, triumphant. “Welcome to the Mirror, on the day of its birth, on its day of Naming: the Mirror—a world reflecting a history it will never know and a future that is all its own.”

Far beneath, on the Mirror, something green began to grow.


Fantasy

Mistress Rwebhu Kidh wrote:
Charles lived in an old, old house, with his three-year-old daughter Anna. He opened her bedroom door at one AM.

He saw a cake with two hundred candles; an old man with skin the color of paper, and no eyes at all, smiling beatifically; and Anna, singing.

“Daddy,” she said, “this ghost is named Eeyore, and he was sad because nobody remembers his birthday anymore. I gave him a balloon. What will you give him?”

Charles put his hand in his pocket. There was just one thing to do.

“Many happy returns,” he said, and gave Eeyore his best pen.


Historical Fiction

Elisabeth Grace Foley wrote:
Old Mr. Thurmond’s nose wrinkled up irritably as he entered the dining-room. Mrs. Haden was wearing her best lace collar and a fluttery smile, and there was a bunch of flowers on the table—things she did on special occasions. He’d sworn never to let that meddling woman know how old he was. He glared at his fellow-boarders as he slid into his chair—who’d found out and told her?

“Ladies and gentleman,” said Mrs. Haden, “tonight we celebrate the birthday of a venerable institution”—Mr. Thurmond glared more—“at all of five years old! To the Elm Street Rooming-House!”


Overall

And last, but certainly not least, we have our overall winner. She is a talent writer, and also an author.

*drums roll, cake is carted in, and root beer appears in everybody's hands*

Please congratulate...

Miss Elisabeth Grace Foley!!

Thank you all for your entries. There were a couple of really tough decisions Jonathan and I had to make to figure out who the winners would be. You all did a great job! Congratulations!
