    SilverHawk and I finished grading the submission, we are waiting for Demonwrath. He has 24 hours. Obviously if he won't send his gradings by then only SilverHawk's and mine would count. Further more, he will not be allowed to host any future short stories contests.

    Awesome, thanks for doing all that work, Rheias and to the other judges for getting their reviews in. I know I was a pain, but I did put a lot of work into that short story.
    Congratulations to all the contestants. You all have very interesting stories, and I'm excited for the next contest. I'm not sure of a prompt yet, but I'd sleep on it.
    I'll contact you, Rheias, tomorrow. :)

    Congrats to all who participated in the contest, and especially to Ninva. :D

    One thing I'll say to all future contestants:

    Short stories should be self-sufficient - that is they should not be a prequel to some other story, or reference events your readers have never heard of. Some people did that in this contest, and it showed.

    I hope to see all of you participate in future contests! :D

    (I also hope to judge again, if Ninva doesn't mind. :p)
