So... we have another tie.  :lol I will send Horizon a PM and see if we can reach a consensus for a tie-breaker.

@DiddyKF1 @OwlsCantRead @LBTlover247

Alright, as I have not heard back from Horizon I will go ahead and make a judgement call here.  And my call... is to let the tie stand.  :p To be perfectly honest, all three entries had well-written narratives that fit the prompt incredibly well, and all were deserving of this prize.  :yes For that reason, DiddyKF1, you may add the three-star banner attached to this post to your signature.  And both LBTlover247 and OwlsCantRead may add any of the one-star banners in this post to your signature, or you may talk to DarkWolf about possibly getting a custom one-star banner.  Congratulations to all of you!  :)

Once again, please accept my thanks for participating in the fanfic prompt challenge!

The final voting topic for the fanfic awards (for the August 2018 prompt) will be posted shortly.

@Sovereign @jassy @DiddyKF1 @OwlsCantRead

Alright, for the very last time in the 2018 season of the fanfic prompt challenge, it is time for participants in the August 2018 prompt to cast their votes for the best entry in that month.  Just as a reminder, your candidates for this month are as follows:

The Reluctant Goodbye
Author: Sovereign
Description: After nearly losing their only child to a cowardly assault from Red Claw's minions, Chomper's parents have to make a difficult decision. In the face of this rising threat, their choice is clear but coping with this temporary parting of the ways will prove to be a somber challenge for the young sharptooth himself to accept…

As always, all entrants to the August prompts were great stories and true pleasures to read. However, I don't hesitate to cast my vote for OwlsCantRead's "Five Stages of Grief" as it was unmatched in terms of how the tale was built as well as written and the range of emotions it raised within me. In fact, I don't think I'm exaggerating in saying it's one of the strongest stories this whole year. :^^spike

I was split between Sovereign and OwlsCantRead's entries, as they both did such a great job at expressing character emotions when it came to their situations. I spent several hours rereading them several times each before I finally managed to come up with my vote. I've decided I'll go for OwlsCantRead's "Five Stages of Grief". I felt it was somewhat of a suspenseful story since it was an AU, and I felt as if I was watching a much more depressing version of "The Big Freeze." The way I felt about this story parallels how Sovereign felt about my "Swim of Silence" story: that this new author has finally proven that he can write such an emotionally powerful story that can touch the hearts of its readers.
My fanfics:
Love is an Adventure
Waters Rise, Illness Flies
A Swim of Silence
A Swimmer's Sad Secret
A Broken Family
The Hurting of Desire

I enjoyed reading all of the entries for the August prompt, even if I didn’t get to review them all (laziness strikes again :p), but I’m going to vote for OwlsCantRead’s Five Stages of Grief. It’s not very often that a story affects me so profoundly, and this story did just that :DD
I love the rainbow faces from the bottom of my heart!

My stories:

Across The Seasons
Worlds Apart
Deliver Us
Under The Stars

Stay tuned for more!

Thanks everyone for the kind words! I'm glad you liked it. :Mo

As for my own vote, I'd debated about it for close to a week. I've re-read all three stories in that time, repeatedly changing my mind multiple times over. I can't help it... everyone did a splendid job for the prompt! :D

In the end, my final vote after much debate goes to Jassy's Deliver Us. Although I've never seen the movie which this fic is based off of, the characterization and cruel ruthlessness where a life is taken and a child orphaned really gripped me, made more suspenseful and shocking because of the mood whiplash from the first half to the second. Plus, I do like Egyptian settings... just a tad.

The other two stories are gripping tales of goodbyes as well. Chomper with his parents... Petrie with his uncle... I suppose it's tradition for Land Before Time authors to feast on the tears of their readers. :cry
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.



What is a signature? A miserable pile of secrets! Enough talk... scroll down already!
