Well, we did have only three stories, but they were broadly acclaimed as good ones, and all received lots of votes!
If we were to follow the straight and strict lines, the awards would be as follows:
People's Choice Award: Heart's Desire by Snarky24
Best Overall: The Worst/Best Valentine's Day by Celtics534
Most Humorous: The Worst/Best Valentine's Day by Celtics534
Most Unexpected: Heart's Desire by Snarky24
However, we had multiple judges overlook my hard-nosed judging categories (rebels :) and institute one of their own. Among these improvisationalists, there was a unanimous selection for an improvised category:
Most Romantic: A Taste of Honey by indywriter
A fine choice, really! My sincere thanks to all judges (AS, MG, AM, SM, KL, YK, MS) for your hard work and consideration!
Sometime in the next week or so, be on the lookout for details regarding Challenge 2018-3 which will focus (if you dare) upon a mysterious hooded stranger!
