    Conratulations to our (trust)worthy champ - he/she/it stole-garnered one of my votes.

    In the meantime, I am proud that my piece got zero votes - not so proud of it, but proud of you guys for being so consistent with "reward for effort". On comp close day, at the eleventh hour, I had nothing except the concept of two characters having a conversation. So I just started writing it. The big red button just happened, with the logical AoS consequence and the opportunity to callback to the memory mechanic. One read through to smooth the connections then submit - I'm flattered by the unearned kind words in the reviews and glad some enjoyment was had :)

    In the meantime, this 6000 word epic is what I was really working on, and thankyou TDF for the inspiration from the magnificent theme.

    The Case of the Amazonian Prophecy

    Enjoy.
