RESULTS!
So, after about six solid straight hours of reading and deliberating your entries, I've finally come to a (very strangled) conclusion. As I was watching the entries come though last month I already realised this would be an extremely difficult one to pick, as many of you are fantastic well-rounded writers in your own right. I never expected the quality of so many of these stories to be so good, so give yourself a pat on the back for making my life as a contest judge horribly difficult. ;P

In the end I came to three standouts, who on the whole each did a marvelous job. I couldn't possibly demote any to third place (which has no prize) and so, at equal second, are...

:iconjackgunski: The Travelling Bathroom by jackgunski
Awarded because yours was the only piece to make me giggle. Well, not just that; it was wonderfully abstract, and written in an incredibly engaging manner.

:iconluckyslugger: Death of a Cutter by LuckySlugger
For an insightful piece that tells the tale of a man in desperate need of redemption. Sir, your visuals are commendable.

The two of you will receive a prize of 200 points each (a bit extra than the original offering, because I'm feeling nice). Enjoy them!

Finally, the winner of this contest is...

:iconmertus: Voyant by Mertus
Perhaps I'm a little more fond and connected to objects than the average person, but this piece, centred around that little, delicate glass angel, really resonated well with me. Congratulations! :clap:

Well, that's the June contest over and done with. Congratulations to our winners and all entrants, the prizes shall be delivered in about two weeks time. Look out for more contests in the coming month - August shall boast not one but two contests to satiate your comedic and poetic needs!

This has been Pseudinymous, and I bid thee goodnight. :aww:

CONTEST CLOSED
Congratulations guys, to everyone who entered! We have indeed made it to the goal of 30 entries, so congratulations again! A wonderful effort.

Now, if you shall excuse me, the judging shall commence. I shall need at most a week, and probably a bit of caffeine. ;) Good luck to all!

NEAR DEADLINE UPDATE
Well... as the title says, it's very close to the deadline for this contest. In fact, you have the weekend to submit your entries! First off, I would like to congratulate the community for generating the biggest response to a contest on record, with 24 entries! To those of you who haven't entered already or are sitting on work that's not quite done yet, let's see if we can push that up to a total of 30 entries by the end of the weekend, hmm? Because that would be pretty awesome. xD

Anyway, I'd like to honestly wish you all good luck. I'll try to give all your pieces an in-depth and thoughtful critique when the contest is over. Be happy, people. You've done an excellent job so far. :)

Writers! Time to stretch your short story-writing fingers, because this month it's a- a... well, a short story.

THE DEADLINE:
June the 30th, 2013. All submissions must be in the submission folder in time.

THE PROMPT:
Your submission MUST begin with the sentence, "It broke." Whether this is part of the narrative or you have a character saying this is up to you. The sentence is deliberately ambiguous; what breaks, whether it is an abstract concept or a literal physical object, is all up to you. Points will be awarded for originality and clever or surprising uses of the prompt.
SUBMISSIONS NOT COMPLYING WITH THE PROMPT WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE SUBMISSION FOLDER. Let's play this properly, okay?

OTHER REQUIREMENTS:
:bulletgreen: Must be a minimum of 800 words, and a maximum of 1,000.
:bulletgreen: You may only make one submission.

THE FOLDER:
The folder you must submit to is called JUN 2013 CONTEST. Please submit before the due date, late submissions will not be considered.

THE JUDGING:
As per usual these days, I'll be judging in the days after the contest closes.

THE PRIZES:
1st Place: 3 Month Premium Membership
2nd Place: 100 Points


Good luck kids~ ;P Have some fun with this one, m'kay?

Hello, may I ask which folder or what category would this fit in here?

liverstrings.deviantart.com/ar…

I'm not that good with categories.^^;  And I would like to know since I often write in this way.

Accidentally put a poem in the wrong folder. It's called "Not Fragile, But Strong" I mean to put it in the "Speculative" folder, not the "Narrative" Sorry ^^;

Just submitted a deviation to the gallery. Feel free to move it to a more fitting folder, I really wasn't sure which one to put it in. Thank you! Have a nice day.
