First I have to say that I was extremely impressed with all the entries to this contest. The talent here continues to amaze me and I'm extremely happy to be able to provide an outlet to let that creativity loose.

All the entries were great reads, there were stories that tugged on my heart, stories that made me laugh and stories that put a little chill into my bones. As you can all imagine, judging this contest was extremely difficult due to the high quality of entries but the following three submissions stood out among the rest and were routinely featured in our judges favorites.

The Winner of the Popular vote with the most stars at the time of counting (12) is Masqua with his entry The Cull

and now finally...what you've all been waiting for.........

1st Place: Darkness Hold Me by AccessDenied

2nd Place: Magick Forbidden by Voidmaster

3rd Place: A Gnawing Hunger by mojo4sale

Now in the past I've selected what I called Honorable Mentions, usually 4th and 5th places, but being it's Halloween and I've had my fill of tricks, I'll dish a treat instead. The following stories all ranked very high in the contest and will all share the spot of Honorable Mentions, each being awarded 3000 ATS points.

The Weenie in Halloween by Essedarius
The Pumpkin Carver by nyk537
The Tale of the Fall Leaves by Zysin5
The Feast by Antar
Ding Dong Satan Calling by ChikeyMonkey
A last laugh by ubermunche

Congratulations to all our winners and thank you everyone for your participation. I truly enjoyed reading each and every story.

Woohoo 3rd place, wickedness!!

Fantastic job masqua, AD and void, awesome story's guy's and gal.
Props to Essedarius, nyk537, Zysin5, antar, chikey and uber, you all rocked.
Well done everyone else, what a brilliant read all of those submissions were.

I cant believe anyone actually liked "A Gnawing Hunger" to be honest but thanks anyway, it makes me feel all gooey inside.

And huge respect to WorldWatcher and everyone that took time out to judge, it must have taken y'all a week to get through them all.

C ya all for the next one.

Hurrah! Eveyone who participated is now a published author. I really like Access Denied's written story and Access Denied's story. Both good. It would be fun to "live" stories in a virtual environment based on the written work like the ideas in this series. Live online virtual theatre? Happy Halloween!

Awesome job everybody.

Big screaming cheers and hugs for AD and Mojo. Just screaming cheers for Void, his avatar scares me and if his head explodes I'll get covered in brains ewwww!

Here here, with the thanks to the judges.

What's next?

Again I would hate to be the judge...
Count me in next halloween
