This Bond Challenge was a close race. Some judges at the end sealed the fates. The twelve judges had their work to do and many left comments as to how or why they judged the way they did. So one could tell it wasn’t easy. The People’s Choice had 47 votes. But one shined above the others. And now the winners….
The award for Best Overall, Bond Relationship, and The People’s Choice goes to:
Aphrodite's Destiny by Mistress_Lrigtar
The award for Gringotts Involvement goes to:
Ginevra the Girl of his Dreams by luukjn
The winning stories are now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section. The Challenge category is back open. Those of you that have multiple chapters or need to do some editing may continue at this time. If your story is completed, please ensure it is edited and YES, as completed.
The 2013-1 Challenge will start January 1st. It’ll bring out the true animal in you.
I would like to thank my many judges who worked hard for this Challenge. A few are new, I welcome you aboard. To AM, BG, CM, EB, FF, GB, IC, JG, JM, LJ, MZ, NS, PS, & ZA. You know who you are. Thank you very much for all that reading and judging. Your time to help out is quite valuable. The Challenge would not exist if nobody judged them. FF, congrats, you picked all three first place winners. One judge picked all winners with one story as a second choice.
Some authors have asked if I would tell them how well they did in the judging. If you wish, e-mail me and I will tell you your results.
