    Congrats to @Peachalulu For Her Winning Entry "Octopus" !

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Flash Fiction Contest Archives' started by Lewdog, May 5, 2014.

    I want to give a big congratulations to first time Bi-Weekly Flash Fiction Contest Winner @Peahalulu for her awesome entry "Octopus." She now becomes a Hall of Fame member. Coming in second with "The Silver Portal," is @Michael Collins, and in third place is @Selbbin with the entry "Gurp Gurp Gurp."

    Once again a huge congrats to all the winners, thanks to all those that entered, and also thanks to all those that took the time to read the entries and vote!

    You need new glasses? It was up and I even sent out a reminder just a few days ago. After the voting ended I moved the thread to the archives, but it was in the normal forum up until 12 am. :confused:

    I don't know, @Lewdog, I frequently check the forum for "new posts" and I didn't see the thread. I don't know what to say, except checking "new posts" didn't turn the thread up for me. o_O

    Odd. Might be a reason votes are low. That was the clear-cut winner though. :)

    Where's the winning entry so I can link it to her soon-to-be-forged lightning zaplowie! badge.:)

    ETA: Never mind. Found it. Medal is awarded! :D

    On a side-note: This is a really complicated system of threads. Really. Complicated. I'm wondering of the member-only protection is causing the threads not to update in the regular sidebar. I have a feeling the forum platform is viewing these threads as Workshop threads because I can confirm @GingerCoffee 's observation that these are not updating in the sidebar. o_O

    Thanks everyone! Lot of good stories in the competition. Loved your imagery Michael Collins! And Selbbin you get a thumbs up for using the word Gurp. Everyone else - good reads! it's nice to see all the different interpretations.

    Oh, no, I mean there is the stunning silver option, good for that sleek, grey and black, winter-in-uptown-Manhattan look, and also the decadent gold option for when you're feeling deliciously Dior. ;)
