And the winners of the fantastic SteelSeries Headsets are...
Well, you'd better read on if you want to find out!
So, it's now all over.
There were so many brillaint entries in the "Inspired by a Song" contest... but of course they were great, you are movellians after all! The fruits of your five week labour were superbly shown and the entries were of an impeccably high standard. It was a perfect platform for showing how unbelievably creative and talented you are and each story/poem/account was told with a unique flair. The entries were melancholy, funny, thought-provoking, enlightening; but what they all had in common was that they found true meaning in the chosen songs.
Unfortunately, that made judging all the harder.
But there have to be winners and the authors below are incredible talented. So, without further ado...
1st PLACE: THE PRICE by CarsonFaircloth
Mama told me not to waste my life.
And I don't plan to.
"Richy," Thomas hisses behind me. "Richy."
"What?" I snap back, swiping my black bangs out of my eyes. A bullet plants itself firmly in the wood above my head, and I wince.
The counter we're hiding behind is much too crowded, by stools and trash, and as such, Thomas is sucked up to my side, his wide blue eyes gazing at me with all of the trust in the world. He doesn't answer me, but I know what he's thinking.
Fix it, Richy. Fix it.
2nd PLACE: SIN AND RUBBLE by Salamaunny
This is a little story, narrated by Death's distant cousin, the Dream Taker. "At 8:15 that morning, 61,600 bodies walked that street. At 6:15 that same night, nearly a third would be dead. They would no longer be walking."
3rd PLACE: BURY ME DEEP by Uncle Mitchy Kay
"Bury me deep," cried my friend in pain,
"Six feet under, beneath the ground;
Dig the hole and let me sleep."
Shovel and pick in hand.
Internet hugs and applause go to our champions. We could definitely write a song about how great they are. Well done to everyone who entered, though, you're blossoming literary stars.
But it's not all over! Special recognition goes to the following people, for demonstrating brilliant story-telling and creativity. Take a bow, guys.
