Greetings, my fine, lollipop wielding comrades! ~as a zombie moans, walking past, handing everyone lollipops as they listen~
Unfortunately I'm going to have to keep this relatively quick, but don't worry, I'm most certainly going to say something of each and announce the winner!
Haha! And what a perfect first entry to skip!
Ok, ok, I won't skip it, but I'll be exceedingly brief. :P Entry number 1 was mine. I switched my style from horror and terrible endings from the zombie competition, to innocent and a little humorous with this entry. Thank you so much, everyone who complimented it. :3
Competition entry number 2!
Author: Octaboona Ambrosius
Wow! I was so surprised when I first saw this, and then read it. The conciseness is blunt and haunting by the story it portrays. So few words make it original, clever, unique. At first, I thought it might have almost been a poem, weaving a web in disguise as a story. Utterly fitting to the author who wrote it! Thank you, Octa, for your brilliant story!
Competition entry number 3!
Author: Nights Raven
Oooo, chilling! I thought at first that Steve, Jack, Jordan, and Danielle would survive their horrifying experiences and come out scarred, but alive. That was not to be, however as the ghosts were restless. The perfect Halloween story! It began innocently, and ended terrifyingly. I loved it! Thanks, Raven, for submitting your awesome story!
Competition entry number 4!
Author: Taia DeMars
I love Alfred James. The man the story line follows as he reluctantly passes out a single aniseed to the trick-or-treaters. Haha! I'm certain that must be the strangest "candy" they get for Halloween. In the end, as Tanith appears, unexpectedly, frighteningly. Who knows what happens to poor Alfred James. Taia! I insist you tell us! ~grins~ Thank you for submitting this epica piece of Halloween stories.
Competition entry number 5!
Author: Kallista Pendragon
Woah! Talk about creepy. I'm certain I shivered whilst reading this at least five times. Poor Helena sent in as the drama clubs ritual demands. Haunted houses, ghosts, woeful brides, and chilling endings. This story must have everything in it balanced so efficiently! The ending was terrifying, and I loved the whole story! Thanks so much, Kal for adding this to our Halloween nightmares!
Now, without further ado! [since the computer's going to log me off in four minutes]
The winner of the Short Story Halloween Competition, being voted just one more than two others.... is entry number five by Kallista Pendragon!
Congratulations, Kal! It was brilliant, and I would have voted for it too, if I could have :]
~crowns Kal the Queen of Halloween~
Thanks, everybody for adding something new to Halloween for everybody! I loved reading every one. :3
I'm hoping y'all enjoyed it too, and I'll see more entries by you the next time we have a competition 8]
