Spacepirate!

Congratulations to you, sir.

Jason Sanford had this to say about your work: "One reason I picked the winner over the runner-ups is b/c of the winner's compelling voice. I think the winner has a unique vision and voice, and is already creating compelling writing. While the winner needs to keep working hard and developing their skill, this person has "great writer" potential. I hope winning this contest will encourage them toward that goal."

Big woots to you, Spacepirate. Now you need to get a Paypal account and email me with your Paypal info so I can send you your $250 prize!

And, of course, no great contest would be great without a list of runner-ups:
Zombified
the_knockon_effect
peepingthesmurf
ScottyMcGee
Clarissa
Weirdside

Thanks to everyone who participated. It was fun and I'm glad it went over so well!

Expletives don't make you cool. Take those sunglasses off.

Bad influence, sheesh.
