And here's my special prompt proposal for this month.

During times of great uncertainty and inner conflict, our thoughts and actions are based on our past experiences. Most of all, the treasured, precious moments of the past will live forever and guide us through the more difficult moments of our lives and stir long-hidden and missed memories and emotions.

Have a great time working on this one, both of you!  :)

This is what I do in my free time, to be honest, though I admit I got a bit crunched for time the last few months  :smile

Okay, everyone, another prompt is done and that means it is time for the participants to vote for their favorite entries this month.  And what a month it has been!  :)  Excluding my entry (which is not eligible for voting or winning) we have had three participating stories, all of which nicely used last month's prompt to good effect.  Though in my opinion all of them are worthy of consideration for the best entry, only one can win in the end.  :yes So with that in mind I invite all participants to vote for their favorite entries (excluding your own entry or my entry) and to give an explanation of their choice in their post.

The entries for the last prompt were:

Love is an Adventure
Author: DiddyKF1
Description: My response to the Gang of Five challenge prompt for February 2018. Ducky and Petrie find their love for each other blossoming to a whole new level, and they get ready to start a new adventure in their young lives. Set in the same continuity as "Secret Love," 12 years after the main events of the story.

My vote goes for Ducky123’s story the Final Adventure. While both of the entries offered interesting plots and well-crafted emotional scenes, I found the narrative and setting just a bit more effective in Ducky’s entry.

I'd have to say "The Final Adventure," because of how effective the emotions were, and I love how the longnecks are portrayed as being very brave when it comes to accepting their fates.
My fanfics:
Love is an Adventure
Waters Rise, Illness Flies
A Swim of Silence
A Swimmer's Sad Secret
A Swimmer's Sad Secret
A Broken Family

Doesn't really change anything but just to be fair, I will vote as well!

Both stories were really interesting to read in their unique ways and it was hard to cast a decision. In the end, I have to go with Love is an adventure because of how great the author portraits this rather unusual couple in his story but it is a close one and no story is quite superior to the other ^^spike
Note to self: finally create that signature lazy bum! :P

I must say I'm truly astonished that every writer seemed to outdo themselves for this special prompt. It was great to see this many people joining this amazing challenge and it's even better to see that we got some of the year's best short stories this month. Even then, I must say I didn't hesitate a lot when I decided which story deserved my vote.  DiddyKF1's fic "A Swim of Silence" managed to create a very strong and deep premise and the way he built his story around a most painful of memories like this was absolutely crushing but also rewarding to read. The fact that this story also served as a memorial to Barsi stoked a flurry of emotions within me like few stories in this challenge's history have. Gorgeous job with that one, DiddyKF1! :yes

Thanks, Sovereign. :) In fact, I can say the same about The Road's End, The Friendship's Rebirth. This prompt was filled with so many strong stories, but this one takes my vote. I strongly agree that friendship can never be broken, even by poor leadership, loss of trust, so many arguments, or (in the case of my entry) the death of a friend or loved one. In the end, the most important thing is that the five kids realize they need each other, even in their moment of accepting their tragic fate, and they stick together to the very end as they take their final journey to the Great Beyond. The Gang never letting their friendship tear itself apart is what will always stick out in my mind.

Oof, this is a difficult decision for sure,,, to be honest, I thoroughly enjoyed reading all of the entries for this month, I have to say that the one that stuck out to me the most was DiddyFK1’s ‘A Swim Of Silence’. It impacted me in more ways than one. Very well done! :D

It'll take me a while to finish my entry. The current weather here makes any activity above sitting around doing nothing a pain. Can't think when it's 30 degrees in your room all day and night.

It's taken me a long time to decide, but I think I'm going to have to go for DiddyKF1's entry, A Swim of Silence! It was an interesting premise, and I loved the idea that Ducky might be hiding a personal tragedy. Great job!

I like how all three stories in this prompt group use emotional despair at some point within...because the act of making choices always must have cruel, bitter angst in them, don't they? Sorry? Nah, not sorry.

In all seriousness, DiddyKF1's A Swimmer's Sad Secret for me.
Not much hesitation with that decision there, since it works extremely well for what it tries to do: wrapping up the story of A Swim of Silence by Ducky relaying the tale to her friends in a manner not unlike the flashbacks told by the fastbiter pack in Song of the Hunters, where a reader walks in pretty much knowing in advance what some of the tale is about, and thus can predict the eventual reactions of those being told it as well. Perhaps the best part is that the gang all help Ducky get over her grief, closing the book on the tragedy once and for all as Ducky winds up in a better emotional state with six new special friends to call her own.

It's an emotional tale of support in the face of despair more than anything, so I have to give my vote to it this time round. Very nice job!
A quaint creature who soars when the Night Circle is highest in the dark sky, messing up his circadian rhythm in the process. Truly, a tragic flyer.

In terms of LBT, love to write stories! :)
Current Fics: Waves Crashing Upon the Sky, Five Stages of Grief, Scrambled Eggs, and Our Safe Haven.

I'll put my vote in for 'Scrambled Eggs'. Everyone did such an awesome job this month that it was a hard to choose.

This was such a tough one. All of the July entries were filled with such emotion because of choices that had to be made. It was hard to pick between Chomper being killed off as an infant or being taught how to fish to avoid potential banishment. Both situations would have made such good stories, and they did.

In the end, I'm gonna have to go with LBTlover247's "Our Past and Our Future." It was a heartwarming piece about how friendship and loyalty comes first, and Chomper may have bright hopes for his future. Also, I picked it not because of its strong hopes of resolution, but because of how complete it felt compared to the other one.

Sorry, OwlsCantRead, but to me the ending to "Scrambled Eggs" felt incomplete, with no clue on what really happened to the Gang after the Sharpteeth cornered them and no one came to help them, and it kinda left me feeling clueless and wondering what happened next. I'm not the biggest fan of stories that just end like that. I once got slammed for leaving such a cliffhanger in one of my stories, and I learned to never make that mistake again. Still, other than that, the story itself was an emotional thriller, if only I knew how it really came to an end for our beloved heroes.

And I guess that means it's a three-way tie. Good luck trying to break it!  :D
