Even it you did I doubt you'd get your points back
Congrats to Saika, Orange, Battlemage, and Cres! Your entries were truly amazing, I loved them. If only i'd been able to publish something, I may have gotten on that list. I'll try to be more competent in not deleting my stories in the future, lol.
Damn you Bucky I hope you get down here eventually and rot like an apple
WHOOOO THIRD PLACE!!! Congratuverylations to everyone who entered and actually completed their entry! I can't believe I got third, I'm so happy!
Great job everyone. Except Ford. Ford failed March, and that is quite unforgivable.
Special congratulations to Cresentstar. An Architect (aside from Will) that has truly done well.
Last, but not least. I'd like to offer up a round of thanks to Bucky for hosting all of these, and making these possible. While I haven't participated in any of them, they have truly been a good motivator for people on this site to actually do something. Such hosting done well is quite commendable. (Hint, Hint @mods)
I'm curious to see what Berka has in store. I'd personally be very interested in seeing a tournament of sorts. Like some kind of short story tournament. That would probably rouse me from my personal writings long enough to participate in one of the site contests. In any case it should be interesting times.
*wins bet money* *has an extra irl $5*
Forgot to say this earlier: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SAIKA!!!
Congrats to everyone who entered! Submitting something is a feat on this site, so yeah.
Congrats to Battle - love the pictures <3
Congrats to Orange - Yes. Yes. :0 Yes!!! Good job! I'm so happy for you!
GG, Saika, and well played. Indeed, I lost my will when you joined. You know I had my money on you from the start. AWESOME!!!! Congratulations on winning!!!!!! Seeeeeee! You didn't have to worriedly check your rating everyday. Err nothing.
I can say that I'm very happy with the results and the winner. Thank you, Bucky, for hosting this wonderful, exciting contest! Several quality stories have been added to the site because of it. Berka, I await your contests now that Bucky has resigned. Cheers! *^-^*
And at last Ford's soul IS MINE.
Anyway, here's the top 5 I had.
1. From A Great Height by Saika
2. Penthos by Orange
3. Three Hundred Thousand Tears by Crescentstar
4. Of Cold Hands and Sour Fruit by Reverencia
5. Deities of Exiterrium by ericyopy
Gg, finally. That post was more satisfying then the actual results.
Hmm... My predicted votes for you match up fairly well, actually.
Congratulations to everyone who participated and wrote a decent story, especially first time story-writers. Now, please go back and update your stories, a lot of them had easily fixable issues or otherwise really interesting unexplored ideas which I suspect got kicked out by the clock.
Furthermore, I tip my hat to Will's style, and would like to thank Bucky for running his contests. The contests have been fun to both be a part of and see, I personally joined the site because of the January one.
Here's a requiem for Ford and TCount. May your follies in this life not carry over to your next (alts).
Congrats to everyone who's ranked high, and especially to Saika, with a deserved first place. Thanks for organising these great contests Bucky.
And thanks for saying so! The title was one of the few things I was consistent with since I started writing the darn thing. Aside from the poor time management on my part, this was pretty fun to be involved in. Congrats to everyone!
I honestly didn't expect that, but thanks Bucky!
This is like the second time I’ve had Eric’s story in the top 5 and everyone else hated it. Lol.
Now I must read Eric's stories. o-o
I really liked his story, but it didn't end up in my top 5 because it just felt really short and unfinished. If a few paths would've been longer than three pages, it would've definitely ended up on my ballot.
I have been blessed by Endmaster.
But I unpublished the story because like others and I thought, the story was largely unfinished due to,
1. School activities including MORE WRITING, after school activities, state testing, huge end of the year projects, etc.
2. Procrastination! We all know what it is.
3. The research (which I wasn't able to use most of due to time restraints) was a lot more overwhelming than I thought it was going to be. When searching up 31 (was 32) deities and trying to find out their origins, it took a lot of time and I feel like, more than it needed to be.
Although I am proud of being able to get what I could in the time that I had. And for those interested, I will be working on Deities of Exiterrium and actually being able to expand on Pacem (which was the one I said "screw it" to because I had no time left) and give all the deities the limelight they needed. But during the side, I will work on Hand Gun, another sci-fi story that will be not very serious but just fun in general. ALSO I will be working on a narrative for school so basically I won't be able to work much on stories on CYS. I will be making a post later about Hand Gun and more information, but basically I'm looking for those interested in co-authoring or beta reading my story while I'll be in Malaysia where I can't post on the forums or work on stories much.
And for those who REALLY want to read Deities of Exiterrium, can PM me and I'll send a link.
*nods somberly* School course for writing, school activity for writing... *cri*
What I meant to type: haha that mistake has been made so many times already. ;-; (fricking Japanese and Chinese keyboards)
Holy shit. I won?!
Nearly had a heart attack when I saw the results today. Thanks to all the judges and everyone who took part. My favourites were Crescent's and Reverencia's entries, personally. Looking forward to the next contest! I actually made it to the top of Endmaster's list?
gg no ree
Congrats man, your storygame was truly amazing.
Oh, hoho. I knew your true intentions. :)
Sorry about my delay in responding, I’m still too lazy to figure out how to post on mobile.
Congratulations to Saika, Cres, and Orange. All of you certainly deserve the top three. In particular, I am very fond of Cres’ storygame, and I am very glad it was featured. I also want to thank the judges for taking the time to read all of our storygames (even if it was a rushed monstrosity like mine), and I want to thank Bucky for running his swan song contest (for now at least). I rather wish I didn't unintentionally join the mini-contest, for Ford would’ve then had a ton of points which would’ve been banned from his usage.
Saika, from above the countless idiots, lazy idiots, suicidal idiots, somewhat competent idiots, and a handful of non-idiots… you rose above the competition. Enjoy your shiny, golden trophy. :)
Hats off to the triumphant ones!
