  1. Thank you! What an unexpected surprise! I am truly honored to be chosen 2nd out of all of the other excellent entries! Congrats to the other winners, Aetherios & Devious_T and to everyone else who submitted a story, you all really did great work and should be very proud. Truthfully, I didn't think I had a chance. Thanks again!
  2. Nyzaltar, I'm going to assume you mean the official list (since I still don't see it in the list above from your original post), Thank you for that. The clarification for multiple entries is much appreciated and of course, not being able to win twice (aside from Community) is understood. Also, a minor thing (but my OCD is kicking in) Yellow is spelled wrong in the list above. Thanks!
  3. I wrote two stories (Rebirth & Yellow Submarine) but only one of them is listed here (Yellow Submarine) If only 1 entry is allowed then I want it to be Yellow Submarine, however, the rules did not specify only 1 entry per person. Thanks
  4. I wasn't completely happy with my first entry, so here's round two. Completely different story, completely different viewpoint. I've read some really good stuff on here, so good luck to all! Hope you enjoy! Yellow Submarine.pdf
  5. A couple of things to note: All dates are from official lore and previously written short story already established as lore. Just as in the lore, I have included brackets in the story to frame all references to names that may change (i.e. UMF) In this story, somewhere around the end of the 21st century, shortly after the “Rebirth” program was implemented by the [uMF], the Gregorian calendar was replaced with a calendar based on seasons, known as the cycle calendar. The new calendar was implemented partially to promote the Rebirth program (Rebirth Day!), but also to assist those involved in the project, in the hopes that when/if they arrive on another world, they have some kind of calendar/dating system that they are familiar with and is easily adaptable to the new planet. (i.e. a seasonal calendar) On Earth each cycle has roughly 91 days and correspond loosely to the following months/seasons: -Rebirth Day = The 1st day of the year in the cycle calendar and is always on the Spring Equinox -First Cycle = March, April, May (Spring) -Second Cycle = June, July, August (Summer) -Cycle Day (also jokingly known as Recycle) = The Autumnal Equinox -Third Cycle = Sept, Oct, Nov (Fall) -Fourth Cycle = Dec, Jan, Feb (Winter) Cycle dates are often referenced as the 40th day of Cycle1, 2536 (or 40C1, 2536.) I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE STORY! Rebirth.pdf
  6. Do all of the winners get the - Unique in-game title: "Famous Writer" - or only the community winner? It kind of makes sense to me that they all should get the title as well? Thanks, Temerian
