Wow! Congrats Marty ^_^ I saw a few page samples in an other thread and I must say you have every right to that prize ^_^ Lovely style!

I'm gonna try to enter the 3rd contest, I didn't make the 2nd cuz I was such a perfectioninst and cuz my ideas couldn't be contained in 20 pages >_< Well looking on the bright side, I came up with 5 awesome stories for future use and a truckload of characters... but for now my journey for the perfect 20-page story continues! ^_^
