Well you have all spoken and made your choices clear.
From my end of things this was quite an exciting race to the finish. I wasn’t kidding when I said every vote counts … in two categories the winning story won by a single vote.
On the site the stories are now all identified by the number and author so you can see if some of your guesses were correct.
I know, I know you all want to know who won so I’ll just step aside and let you get to the good stuff.
For Banner 1 the winner is:
For Banner 3 the winner is :
The story you all wanted to see continued is :
As I read all the comments that came in for every story one reviewer stood out as a shining light. I found myself dropping everything to go read her reviews when they came in, she took the time to make sure that the authors knew how much she enjoyed their stories ….. here’s an example of her reviews:
I’ve never read Twilight or seen the movies, so I had no preconceived notions except I thought Edward Cullen was a vampire. My lack of knowledge didn’t matter, tho. Your story was easy to follow and I was intrigued by Lady Swan. It sounds like her daughter WANTS to become her stepbrother’s second wife but Lady Swan knows that’s not what’s best for her. That must be why Lord Cullen will have to drug her when he rescues her. You’ve captured my interest and I’d love to know what happens next. Thanks for giving me a glimpse outside my own fandom.
This was exactly what I hoped would happen … that some of the readers would enjoy stepping out of their fandom.
So this is for her:
I will be leaving the stories on this site until the authors let me know that they have posted them elsewhere and then I will remove the story and give you the web addy where it can be found ….
I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did … I have been asked if I will be doing this again and the answer is a big fat YES.
I’m sure you have all seen the disappointing trailers for the upcoming season of TB, so I’m sure I will have lots of material for banners hopefully some of you will be inspired to change the story to a happier outcome.
Thank you all for taking this journey with me. As most of you know I am one handed for now (hopefully not for much longer) due to surgery to repair my rotator cuff. All the authors will be getting a thank you banner from me in the days to come, as I can get it done.
See you next Challenge
