Firstly, I want to say thank you to everyone who has flashed over the course of the last forty-two weeks. I've been continually amazed at the strength of the writing we've had, week by week. There are a lot of talented writers around and it's been a privilege to read your words. I hope #fanficflashfic has provided you with some inspiration and some fun - both as writers and readers. I know more than one of you have continued various flashes into longer stories, and that's just amazing.
Secondly, this will be the end of #fanficflashfic … for a little while. With NaNoWriMo keeping people busy, and the holiday season approaching so quickly, I've decided to take a break for a while.
Thirdly, assuming there's enough interest, #fanficflashfic will start back up in January. I'll be looking forward to seeing all the words roll in once more.
Cheers, lovely writer-friends.
@AnnaLund2011 - HONORABLE MENTION:
Using the ocean as a symbol of the foreverness is beautiful. It totally works for me in terms of the quote and the image.
@ladylibre - The ending here surprised me! I was thinking it was so sad - I have had to say goodbye to loved ones and it hurts - and then it really IS painful seeing as how the “Other” in this is marrying elsewhere. What a painful backstory must be here!
@jdifrans - This one is so quiet...but so busy and filled with the questions and uncertainties. I hope they get answered!
@Pinkcookie - FIRST PLACE:
I really enjoyed how you used the prompts and the emotive quality you assigned to each. “Now, I watch as you slowly peel it and silently feed us slices one by one. You’ve done this same little thing for us hundreds of times.” - This is a forever composed of nows. I really like it. :)
@moonlit__girl - HONORABLE MENTION:This one just made me smile. A lot. I read it over more than once and kept smiling. “Seventeen.” I can see more meetings in the future… but I kind of hope they try something daring and email. :)
@bkhchicka - Wow. I am cringing here, and many kudos to you for going in this headspace. “But decisions alter what forever looks like. “ This is SO true and should have its own quote prompt.
Thank you to @sandyquill for judging, and to everyone who participated.
Pinkcookie - when #fanficflashfic resumes, I'll be in touch.
