We want to congratulate both and thank them for writing such wonderful stories for the contest!
Thank you, Meads, for so generously sharing your talents with us. We also want to thank all the other contestants for their lovely stories - and all the betas for their hard work. We were amazed with the quality the stories had and we have thoroughly enjoyed reading them all. We can only recommend that you read and review all the great stories in this contest!
Thank you for taking us home with you!!
Update: We are very excited to have our poll up ready for your votes! You maye vote for two of your favorite stories and you have until April 13th at noon Eastern Standard Time. The winners will be announced on April 14th. We hope you all enjoy going home with our writers!
What if Eric lived in your hometown? Or Sookie visited the place where you grew up? Or maybe Jason was dating the girl next door to where you live now? Or Bill seduced the cashier at your local supermarket because she could get him free coupons? Or Amelia turned your hairdresser into a parrot? Or the guy two doors down from you had a dog named Alcide? Or Pam was your local soccer mum? Or, or….
Write us a story about any or all of the SVM characters and put them in a place in which you’ve lived. It can be a country, state, province, city, town, village, or even neighborhood that you’ve called home. What happens there is entirely up to you!
Your hosts are Thyra10 and Suki59 and both of us have sent Sookie and Eric to our own hometowns quite a few times. Now, we’d like to see where you live or used to live. Please, invite us in – take us to your Home Sweet Home.
