People in WordPress are seriously talented. You guys rock!

Picking the best out of almost 100 entries was mind-boggling hard, to the point where I couldn’t really do it. So I had to call my book-loving buddy Tanja Kaaria to help me get my shit together. A few slaps in the face later, we finally got it. Because Tanja is the Simon to my Paula.

So we analyzed every twitter and WordPress story, and we decided we’d split the best entries in two categories:

  • HEROES OF AWESOMENESS (laurels, glory and all that jazz).
  • HONORABLE WARRIORS (because these folks kicked ass and they deserve some love).

And guess what: there are awesome buttons waiting for you guys!

Now, I said I’d choose ONE winning entry, and I had to. But to everyone mentioned on BOTH categories: If I could, I’d fit you all in guest posts.

Also, thank you to EVERYONE who participated! You’re all AMAZING!

So, without further ado…

 

HONORABLE Warriors:

here’s the button for you guys! Make sure to link the button back to the original post, otherwise people will be all like “Whaaa? I don’t believe you.”

“Karma’s a bitch,” she whispered in the smoke filled air. Ella smirked as her step-sister’s house burnt to cinders.

“Everyone on the night bus was asleep, but he couldn’t sleep a wink; something was bothering him. He knew that it was because of her, who had told him the night before on their five-year anniversary that she couldn’t do this, and that she was sorry, so so sorry…”

“She knew how wrong it was to kiss the married man she loved, but she’s been waiting for this moment to happen. Tonight, of all nights, she was just a girl, getting kissed by the boy she liked.”

He gazed into her eyes as he said, “I do.” He watched through tears from behind a pillar.

The woman, drained and battered within an inch of her life, stared up at the dark stranger and whispered, “I have nothing left to give you.”

“You still have your soul which I’ll gladly take now.”

There was this girl I knew once in school who was taunted by bullies and abused by her alcoholic father. I had a chance to make a difference in her life…and failed.

“You’re getting weaker every minute,” said the doctor in a low, shaky voice. I knew that all he could see of me was a haggard, stick-thin figure in a hospital bed, so I offered a hopeful smile to prove him wrong.

Once upon a time they lived happily ever after, but now the King lay dead on the Castle floor. She kicked the poisoned apple away and watched it roll under the bed, surprised that he’d never seen it coming; after all, when in the history of the world had there ever been a Good Queen?

Through the unmapped wastes of space, the silver snake wound and coiled its way round planets and meteors, creeping ever closer to its goal. In the observatory, the astronomer watched, transfixed, first with curiosity, then with fear.

He burnt the bacon.
