Dabs


The winner submitted a piece entitled "Vile." Congrats! You'll get a PM from me soon, since winning means you get $200!

Runners up are as follows (in order):
Bookworm
lostbookworm
Squint

I will check with the judges to make sure they have no qualms with releasing their comments to the YWO community.

Congratulations, again, to the winner and to the runners up! We'll get started on this whole process a lot earlier this year.

CONGRATULATIONS, DABS! Dabs is the winner. You don't have to click through all those spoiler boxes to see it. (Not classy, Shaun.)

Weirdly enough, the second I loaded your picture, the really fanfare-y part of the soundtrack for Independence Day started playing. Seem awfully fitting...

CONGRATS.

Now excuse me while I weep like Leonardo Di Caprio about my lack of a trophy.
