We have the winners!!!!
What a spectacularly beautiful end to the Beautiful Edward Challenge.
Seven fantastic stories that garnered a staggering 7352 unique visitors! So let’s meet the winners so we can give them praise for writing and participating!
The overall winner in the Poll and recipient of the Dazzle Award goes to:
Alby Mangroves, for In Braille.
BoydBlog: To tackle the description of beauty having one of the characters blind! WOW, talk about setting yourself a task, but you did it exceptionally well. I loved the descriptions; even the wet feel of Balt’s slobberizing her, made me laugh!
CandyTwi: What a beautiful twist on Beautiful Edward! Feeling his beauty – your story expands our senses to enjoy him even more. The detail was lovingly and well written, the addition of the Balt was a great plot device, as was the use of Renee. Great entry!
For the Divine Award, we have a tie!!! Both stories are fantastic, and they both had equal amount of votes, so they both deserve second place!
Divine Award – MPG for My Masterpiece
BoydBlog: Deliciously sensual is Bella's description of the sex-god-come-muse. If I was an artist, I would have a mural of Robert *cough* I mean Edward, on my bedroom wall to dream underneath! Not only did you set up the whole story well, but you also relished in Bella's visualisation and longing for a delectable personification of everything she coveted and desired. A thoroughly exquisite beautiful Edward indeed.
CandyTwi: Nice that your Bella was brave enough to give us all a lemon - we got to feel Beautiful Edward as well as see him! The ultimate fantasy date... *sigh* You came up with some very cool phrases - special favourites included "the bar--my makeshift altar to worship his beauty" and "the man with the face that could launch a thousand orgasms." The opening couple of paragraphs had me intrigued as to what this Bella was up to, and the mural was a metaphor for the thousand photos of Edward we all have in our perve collections! Good luck!
Divine Award – TeamEdward-TSA for The Glory of the Garden
BoydBlog: You set the scene very descriptively. The anticipation of Edward was excruciating!!! Oh, Edward in the glorious sun, was a vision, and Bella's voyeuristic spying on him was divine...oh my yes, Edward in a garden surrounded by flowers... glory indeed. Good luck in the challenge!
CandyTwi: What a gorgeous romantic setting you weaved, setting the stage for the garden Adonis that we were panting for by the time he made his appearance. A very perve-worthy Edward splashing himself amongst the Lady Fingers! and a nice trip to a lovely English summer in the process. Good job.
And the winner of the Delectable Award goes to edwardsisobel for Beauty Crowds Me.
BoydBlog: I will never be able to watch Mrs Doubtfire again! lol. I loved that in this twist in the story it was his looks that became a handicap in his chosen field. I adored Bella’s descriptions and observations of him. He’s so adorably clueless and even though he’s been surrounded by the glamour and falsities of the modelling industry, he’s stayed true to himself. Good luck in the contest!
CandyTwi: Intriguing, engaging story that makes great fun use of so many canon characters, is sexy and poignant and takes an insightful look at the downside of being beautiful – something a certain RPatz may occasionally agree with? Good sustained storytelling!
And, as we could only choose one the we overwhelmingly agreed had the best mix of beauty for our ideal Edward the Hosts’ Award for Hottest Edward went to Alby Mangroves for In Braille.
All winners will receive their banners and Alby Mangroves will have In Braille featured on the TwiFic Hall of Fame blog with an Author spotlight. Interview with Alby Mangroves
