Poll: Voting for Contest Vote Now!
The judges for the Black Balloon contest would like to express their thanks to all of the writers who contributed their time, words, and in some cases, personal angst to this contest. Angst is a difficult thing to write, getting the tenor and tone, as well as the right amount of emotional pull, is very hard work, indeed. The angst was very good, and some of you did bring us to tears. We especially enjoyed the canon entries, the dedication it takes to write canon, and to write it well, is an achievement of itself. We would like to express that the quality of all of the submissions was of such a high standard, it was difficult to narrow seventy-three entries to twenty. Each entrant should take away a certain amount of personal pride to have their entries up, especially the shortlisted twenty.
We were shocked at the turn out to our contest, and humbly thank everyone who took the time to write, review, and vote.
We also want to extend a big thanks to Rosearcadia who made our lovely winners’ banners.
And the winners are:
In third place, Watching the Sky Turn, by chrometurtle
In second, Lost Like Tears in the Rain, by vampireshavelaws
And first place winner is: From Within These Walls, by ericastwilight
Congratulations to all the winners
The rain fell harshly from the boiling cashmere clouds above. She watched him walk away, her heart crumpled and forgotten on the ground.
"Wait!” she shouts, her brown eyes brimming with unshed tears. Her stomach twisted as he turned.
His eyes defeated her hopes with a single glance. He turned the collar up of his coat, his skin pale in contrast with the dark woollen lapels.
"I'll always love you, Bella.”
His hand caressed down her cheek and she closed her eyes. Tears finally flowed over her pale cheeks and there was the ghost of his kiss on her lips.
Then he was gone.
She died a little more with each step he took farther away from her.
Angst. We love it. Can't get enough of the tears, the dark weather, the emo feelings, the twisting dagger of your words in our gut.
So give it to us. Hard. We want it badly, and if you can satisfy the angst-lust, you might even win a prize.
