K, here´s where I´ll be distributing the prizes.
AND THE WINNERS ARE....
The runners up:
@glowykat1, for the dark tale I named ´Ceiling Horrors´
@-Splatter-, for writing about Robert and his mother who suffers from Alzheimer´s
@WhySoSirius314, with the masked stranger with sea-green eyes and a battle against the subconscience
@-LadyNightLore-, for the twisted views on darkness.
Okay, guys, it has been SUPER HARD and I have been SUPER BUSY, and E V E R Y S I N G L E entry was so brilliant, you all deserve to win, but here´s who I thought made the darkest stories (super hard to choose, while being unbiased about it):
IN THIRD PLACE:
@shannonliv, writing about abused psychopath Connor, with a stutter and a habit for murder. I thought this was awesome how you touched up on real issues and crafted from that idea a story of darkness and misery. I liked the ending as well, it was really sweet.
@KeVeg, for brilliant world-building, coming up with a well-developed storyline, and creating a new disease, called Hemiritis, or Anxiety Plague. I thought Contagious Horrors was fantastic all the way through, telling the story of a normal mind slowly going insane, and ending with a nice suicide, too.
Guys, this was soooo hard, I thought they were all awesome and I feel really bad now, to those of you not mentioned. So I will mention you, because you are all authors at heart, go follow your dreams. But really, this was super tricky, finding a perfect one. Anyway, please don´t kill me if you´re not satisfied, but the winner is....
@BlitzofSoul, congratulations! You wrote about Nala, girl needing money in a rich world. She was desperate to earn something and that was her downfall. I didn´t expect what was coming. She got what she wanted, but lost what she needed. Your story was beautifully gruesome, and just when I thought the story would end, there was more. A dark plot twist, and you all know I´m a big fan of those. I loved it!
Again, I am so so sorry to all of you if you are disappointed how you placed, you are all awesome people with dark minds, so don´t feel bad! We had 25 entries from about twenty Scratchers, thanks so much!!
