My sincere apologies for the late vote but I've been very busy and only been on the forum infrequently.

My vote goes to Soveriegn's One Dangerous Mistake. Out of the two stories, I must say that I simply enjoyed to read it more on a personal level which probably has to do with the fact that jassy's story was full OC so I had a hard time relating to the characters while that was hardly a challenge in Sovereign's story. The ferocious fight amongst the gang was truly written in a realistical, believable way.

In terms of writing style/quality etc. I couldn't put a finger on who did a better job which is why I'm basing my vote off personal preferance in the first place, both did a tremendous job in that regard, yep yep yep!
Note to self: finally create that signature lazy bum! :P

@Sovereign
With all of the votes finally tabulated Sovereign is the winner of the January 2019 prompt challenge. Congratulations! I have attached your second-star banner to this post.  :)

@Sovereign @jassy @Ducky123 @DiddyKF1
Once again, if you have not already done so, you may talk to DarkWolf about your participation banners.

Now that April is upon us that means that voting on the February 2019 prompt challenge can now begin.  Our entries for that month were:

A Lovely Deal
Author: Sovereign
Description: After nearly meeting his end, a young sailback is forced to pay a price for his foolishness. However, over time his way of seeing his new situation changes considerably and before long, he finds something he wasn't even searching as he gets to know one certain female a bit better…

Secret Love v2.0
Author: DiddyKF1
Description: A rewrite of my well-received 2017 story for the Gang of Five's February 2019 prompt. Ducky and Petrie have been developing strong feelings for each other over the last two years since their arrival in the Great Valley, but recently they have been realizing that it may be so much more than that. How will they tell each other, and how will they keep it a secret?

Return to the Land of Mists (chapter 3)
Author: Ducky123
Description: One year after the events of the tv-series, Ali's herd once again visits the Great Valley - and of course Rhett is still with them, still seeing Ali as a potential love interest. Littlefoot also begins to realize his feelings for the girl. This results in a grave conflict which ends up sending all of them back to the dangerous Valley of Mists...

Thanks for the votes last month as they mean a lot to me. :Mo As for my own vote, it was far from an easy decision as the stories differed on so many things, most of all length. Diddy, your story was very well written and I can see why so many people like it. I, however, didn't enjoy the premise in any meaningful way and I'm sorry but I can't vote for Secret Love v2.0 for that reason (I didn't read it to the end but I believe I got a good enough impression during the ten first chapters. I'm not proud for leaving the fic unfinished but I thought it would be fair to mention that). As for Ducky's chapter, it managed to create a lot of emotion and warmth to it while also taking the plot forward in a natural way. It was quite strong piece of writing and for that reason, my vote goes to Ducky123's Return to the Land of Mists (chapter 3).

I was sure that was coming, Sovereign, especially after I saw just how long my story really was, and also because I'm aware you're no fan of the Ducky x Petrie shipping. Please don't feel bad for not finishing it, my friend. A story is a story, and there's always time to read the rest until you reach the end. :)

As for my vote, I'd have to go for "A Lovely Deal." I've read it several times since I discovered it, and I haven't looked at Sharpteeth the way I used to. It gave me a whole new view on how I look at those beasts. They're more than just beasts. Sovereign really showed that Sharpteeth indeed have feelings and are very hesitant to show them, especially to each other, or even in front of anyone, meat-eater or leaf-eater. As I mentioned in my initial review, it's an amazing buildup from initial disgust to slowly warming up to each other, and eventually it blossoms into unrequited love.

I have read "Return to the Land of Mists," but because that story is still in its early stages and the Longneck conflict hasn't really ... happened yet, I didn't have much to say other than it's getting a good start in my eyes, but there's still a long way to go.

Oh, and I'll be sure to keep my entries shorter in the future! :lol
Suddenly, I've written so many fanfics that I can't possibly list them all! :P

Okay, the last few voting periods have been awkward due to a tie in one case (March 2019) and a situation where we only had two votes (February 2019) as such it falls upon me to make a decision in these cases.

@Sovereign

After reading through the entries for February 2019 I fee confident in my choice in naming Sovereign the winner of that month. Though there were three strong entries and each had strong merits on their own, I do think Sovereign's entry set a very high bar.  I have attached your your three star banner to this post, Sovereign.  :)

@Anagnos

For March 2019 there were only two qualifying entries (my stories are not entered in for voting) so the decision fell upon me once again.  After looking through this month's entries once again I was especially take in by Anagnos's story and the unique perspective on Screech and Thud's relationship that it conveyed, which is something that is often overlooked in fanfiction.  As such I am confident in naming Anagnos the winner for March 2019.  :) You may talk to DarkWolf about obtaining a one-star banner for your accomplishment.  :yes

Just as a reminder to everyone else, please keep in mind that the April 2019 and May 2019 prompts are still open so if you have not already done so, please feel invited to give those a try.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with!

@DiddyKF1

As the only entrant for the April 2019 fanfiction prompt you are the winner of that month.  You may discuss with DarkWolf about obtaining a one-star banner for your accomplishment. :) I am not surprised that particular prompt only had one taker as it seems that the two most challenging prompts are those relating to jokes or romance, but I am glad that we did get some participation out of that one.  :yes
