Here are your results for February. I know I still haven't gotten back on personal reviews to those of you that asked in January, but I took better notes this time around.
1st Place - @SevenSeize (Winner of a supporter status..., which she'll have to gift to someone else)
I think I would be good friends with these characters. SevenSeize did an amazing job bringing these characters to life. I felt like I was watching a movie as I could picture how they looked, sounded, and acted. The writing was extremely creative and natural. Very good character development, story telling, and a good ending... something that can be hard to accomplish in a short story.
2nd Place - @123survesh (Winner of a supporter status)
Extremely creative and well written. This was one of the most imaginative stories I've seen in a newgrounds competition. Taking the point of view of the world and love from a small child like this was really fun and well thought out.
3rd Place - @Seth-Kinstle (Winner of a supporter status)
This one was hard for us, we found quite a few submissions that could have taken 3rd. A very relatable and personal story that I can say is very true of my life as well. Seth-Kinstle managed to take a feeling of love that some of us are very fortunate to be able to experience and manages a way to put it into words.
Honorable mention rewards:
You got me to cry award - @NyanaCreation
You got me. I cried. I put myself in the same situation of having to put my daughter through this situation. It hit hard to home and I let it out. Great job putting so much emotion and feeling into your work.
You got me to laugh award - @EntertheJebus
You got me. I laughed. I really needed this after crying from NyanaCreation's submission.
@Zelazon @IceDragon64 @AndrewPixel @RainyG
There wasn't as many submissions this time around, but boy the ones that submitted were really well written. All of the names that didn't get placed were in contention conversations to get placed. That's how well everyone did this time around. I hope nobody thinks they wasted their time with this competition, because even though we didn't have as many submissions they were one of the highest quality batch I've seen.
Thank you to @TheInnerScience for helping me work through the judging process.
Any of the winners this time around can feel free to message me if they want to help judge the March competition. Don't feel obligated though if you were hoping to submit.
