Hello, all! There were some issues with voting, which is why this is a couple days late. But I have the reveal and the winner here for you!

For the Nights I Can't Remember was written by xobabybirdox
A Matter of Time was written by la_armada
Proving the Existence of Ducks was written by wren_hightower

The voting was really really close for all three of you! In the end wren_hightower won by a very small margin. You'll get either six months of paid LJ time as a prize, or the equivalent in LJ tokens.

la_armada and xobabybirdox, you will also receive prizes :)
Feel free to post your stories other places now! :)


I'd like to say a personal congratulations to everyone because your stories were fantastic. Thank you so much for participating ♥

Your stories are due on August 1st.
Voting will take place from August 1st to August 7th.
Winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd place) will be announced on August 10th.

This is your Submission Post!

Aka: the instructions for submitting the story for this challenge are as follows:

Because of the length of the stories, it's not really feasable to ask you to submit via commenting (which is our usual procedure) and because of this we ask you to

Please email your story to magicallysecretive@gmail.com.

In your email, your subject line should read something like this:

Username. Title of story. This makes it easy for me to know who's sent me what.

You should also include the following header before your story.

Title:
Author:
Rating: (G through to NC-17)
Warnings:
Notes:

The Author section of the header will be removed so that anonymity is kept before I post them to the community.

This is a revival Challenge! That means that you scribblers write something between 1000 words and 5000 words based on these picture prompts. You can write for any of them, or for all of them. Use as many as you'd like!:
