Good evening once again, my friends.
Things are a bit hectic here just now and I didn't want to be late, so...
We had to bid goodbye to The Tome's favorite companion, Mofo, this week. If you don't remember, Mofo was my housemate's tarantula. Sadly, she passed on Tuesday. The Tome has been sitting on top of her cage of late. It obviously misses her, as does my housemate. Christmas is coming, however, and I am considering the notion of gifting my friends a new friend. We shall see.
Rest In Peace, dear.
On to winners and words.
This weeks winner is Sandra Davies with A Change of Focus (56): This was just such a snapping good bit of writing! As always, great use of the prompts and the story continues to surprise at every turn. Thank you!
And in second place is Antonia Woodville with her untitled continuation of the Captain's journal: Antonia, this story continues to fascinate. This has a lovely, rich, texture to it. Thank you.
