Annnnnnnnnnnnd, QUANTAM LOCK!
Ladies and any lurking gentlemen, we have a winner!
But first, I would love to thank both Soraya and Alex and even non-SPEWer Carole (plus anyone who pimped the voting that I didn't notice) for linking the vote in your signatures. I'm sure that helped out a lot, as the number of votes doubled in two days.
At any rate, here is the master list of stories, if you haven't guessed already. Quite a nice variety, as we had Male SSP, Female SSP, a rarepair, and a more well-known non-canon pair. Anyway, here goes:
Under Moonlight — Charlie/Oliver by Alex/welshdevondragon
A Game of Fire — Susan/Daphne by Ariana/lucca4
As the Stars Bore Witness — Harry/Katie by Hannah/h_vic
Bound by the Surprise — Neville/Luna by Soraya/babewithbrains
Special shout-outs to: Alex, for being the first entrant; Hannah, for writing this pairing because I subliminally planted the idea in her head; Soraya, for taking advantage of the extended deadline. But, most of all, here is the shout-out you've been waiting for:
Ariana / lucca4
A Game of Fire
Shower her and her gorgeous drabble with sweets SPEWly cheer and she carries her ten points to the Lion's Den!
I was so impressed with the quality of the drabbles and would love to see them all turned into one-shots some day. I know most of you had to cut even from 1K, so I'm sure you have outtakes lurking somewhere. Anyway, this was such a fun activity that I would SO like to do this again at least annually. Thank you, ladies, for your avid participation that made this friendly little competition a success. You are free to post the drabbles where you like, expand them, or whatever. And you are DEFINITELY free to squee in this thread at your leisure. I'll leave it up until the end of the month.
