Special thanks to our fantastic Web Mistress(es) and our Treasurer for their awesome help, and for their awesomeness. Many thanks also to our unbelievable judges, some of whom took extra entries when needed, and some who judged through unbelievable personal circumstances. I can't thank you all enough.

I have to say, the batch this year was incredibly well written.

Good luck to all of you!
Whether you win, or not, I've seen several stories worthy of being out there, available to readers.

Be proud of yourselves. :)
