Fanfic Challenge Winner!

For this challenge — Wraeththu “song fic” — not only did we have a lot of entries (8!) but we had a lot of voters, nearly twice as many as for the last one.

But to end the suspense, the winner is..

“Along the Line”
by Thevina

Summary: Inside Cal’s head just before, during and after his murder of Orien.

Here are some of the comments that came in on this story from voters:

“ALL the entries were superb, but I chose this one because Cal is such a complex character and very difficult for a writer to get the right ‘feel’ of. This story is a very vivid and authentic-feeling representation of a particularly mystifying act. There are so many brilliant little touches in it.”

“Incredibly powerful, the song seamlessly slipped in to the fic. Being inside Cal’s head at such a point was scary, horrific but also moving and painfully sad.”

So congrats, Thevina!

I’d also like to note that there were 3 close runners-up, so there were a lot of good stories.

Here’s a list of all the additional challenge entries:

Look out for the NEXT challenge,

P.S. “Ninzini” was actually me, Wendy/Wiebke, keeper of Forever. 🙂 Next time I’ll use my real name, I just felt like being “anonymous” this time.

    Many thanks to all who voted and read! I was in excellent company and totally unsurprised that it was a multi-way tie throughout most of the voting. Thanks to Wendy for another challenge and so glad there were so many participants, readers and commentators this round.
