Thank you Acacia, Leo, I'm glad you liked it.

It probably would have been longer, with more details about Bigwig, if I hadn't procrastinated so much.  Still, I might continue this at some point.

Vesper, don't worry, your grammar is good.

Thank you so much, Chipster and Vesper! Honestly, though, I didn't do much work! :D

That having been said, submissions are now closed. Stay tuned for the judging to begin.

[CALL]Vesper[/CALL] I like both your entries, they're very creative and it's some clever writing. Imagination is indeed a great quality! I quite enjoyed my trip to Watership Down :D

[CALL]Chipster-roo[/CALL] I was very happy when I saw it was about the bond between Hazel and Fiver because that's something that I love as well. If I had had the time I wanted to write something about them myself so I'm very glad to see in as an entry!

Great entries in this contest. I like how there's such variation between writing, drawing and music. :)

I agree it'll be a difficult choice! Maybe we could have two votes each like last time? It will make choosing a little easier. Only a little though :D

Thank you Chibiscuit.  I appreciate it.

You can still write something about Hazel and Fiver outside of the contest.  I'm sure it would be well-written.

@Chipster-roo- Hallo, my dear friend. Just finished reading your entry and I have to say, I love how you portrayed your admiration of the Brothers relationship in this nice little story of yours. I agree with Chibiscuit that this story does have the potential to be a much greater story than it already is.  Keep up the Good work my dear Friend and can't wait to see what new story is being created for us to read and enjoy in the future, Ciao.;)

Thank you Vesper.  I appreciate it.
I'll probably continue it at some point, but currently I'm writing something else, so it may take a while.

Thanks [CALL]Chipster-roo[/CALL] that's very kind of you^^ I might do so if I have time and inspiration. I look forward to seeing your new work and perhaps an extended version of your entry. :)

Hello! Thanks for your patience. After discussion, we've decided to create two categories for the WSD Contest voting - one for writing entries and another for art entries. Thanks to Chipster for organizing the following list:

Writing Category
Art Category

This means that the writing category and the art category will have separate polls. There will be one winner for writing and another for art.

Here's the poll for the writing category.

Here's the poll for the art category.

But what will we do with Leo's composition? Since Leo made the only submission of this nature, he wins the music category by default. We talked to Leo beforehand, and he is fine with this decision. Congrats, Leo!

Here is his entry: Threnody for Efrafa

Thank you again! Feel free to reply with questions and comments.

By the writing category I give ma vote to Chipster. Becouse its a very sweet and well done write story. I like the brotherhood between Hazel and Fiver too.

On the art is my vote really difficult...
The best art style had Retsch. But its a theme about" a quality you admire in WSD" (so I understand). He dosen't make it about WSD.
My votes are going to Chiby and Acacia.
The picture of Spartina is awesome and the pun is really funny.

Congratulations to Leo!

You can do final vote then with the three winners?
