Oh hi there, y'all! I figured it would be a good idea to actually get one of these going before the middle of the next month, to avoid any confusion over the dates of pieces.

So for those of you who are new and don't know the drill, we're looking to higlight the best pieces of writing on this forum from the month of December. Anything from the writing section is fair game, including the poetry and prose threadboxes. Just don't suggest yourself, because you will be ignored/laughed at.

So is there something you read from December 1st to December 31st that you really enjoyed? Suggest it and it will be in the spotlight!

P.S As usual, please pay attention to the dates of the story you are suggesting. We will call you out if you suggest something from November.

Right off the bat, I am going to suggest:

The Incident (Chapter 4) by MonaLon

Volatile - Prologue by Orphenox

And, because people suggested him for last month's spotlight despite not seeing he posted this poem in December, I'll just add:

"My Friends Walk in Straight Lines" by Dabs

Rachael, that was posted in November. Please try to check the thread dates before you post in the spotlights.
