And now, ladies and gentlemen, the winner:
(*Nessarie) with her entry SACRIFICE
SACRIFICEThe sun cast bright rays through the clouds and threw such brilliance towards the girl in front of her that she swore in that moment she wore a halo of gold. Kyarath knew, of course, that that was impossible; if anyone was going to be wearing a halo, it would be her, not the simple, if not extraordinarily beautiful, girl in front of her.
Not for the first time, Kyarath debated whether or not to take temporary human form so that she could have the opportunity to truly meet the object of her affections, but she knew that now, at least, wasn't the right time - not when she was supposed to be protecting said object of her affections from the evil that seemed to be after her.
Besides, Kyarath thought bitterly, 'though shalt not covet.'
Oh, but how she coveted the human girl's love above all else. Surely her Father could not condemn this? God was love, as were the angels that He had created. He couldn't condemn her for exhibiting and feeling the deep love that He,
Oh me oh my, where do I EVEN start. Fantastic characterization. Creative plot---it's basically AU, but still holds the general feeling and overall idea of the story, which is impressive, and also allowed for a whole story unto itself to be created in only 1 hour. It's rather dark and suggestive, and I LOVE that, but the character still holds her own within this setting, and that's great. The overall quality of the writing is wonderful, and perhaps I may be a BIT biased, but I do so love reading her work. ^_^ Probably the thing I love most about it though is that I could really see my character come to life in this story... plus, I liked her interpretation of the prompt. :3
CONGRATULATIONS *Nessarie!!! You get to host the next round of the #1-Hr-WRITING-Contest!!!
You know what's funny to me, is that everyone made the relationship one-sided... very interesting to me. X3 Apparently people like one-sided romance angst. X3 But anyway...
The runners up:
(~poolwater) with her entry The Girl from the Sky
The Girl from the SkyAmelia Greens was walking alone in a peaceful park just off of Main and Church Street. She was currently between jobs, she was uncommonly uncomfortable around other people, and because of this, she was often out of jobs quite quickly. Amelia didn't mind though. She was pondering her next career options, when a girl fell from the sky directly into her path. Needless to say, Amelia was at a loss as to what to do next. How often is it that a person falls from the sky in front of you? There was no protocol for a situation of this nature. When no sudden solution made itself apparent, Amelia decided to look at the girl and determine what to do after a quick observation. The sun cast bright rays through the clouds and threw such brilliance towards the girl in front of her that [Amelia] swore in that moment she wore a halo of gold. [The girl] gasped in pain, and when Amelia looked again, the halo was gone. In truth, she was stunned. There was no possible solution as to where the girl
This was very cute, I liked her little OC insert and while I would have imagined Soren could just as easily been put in that place, I still enjoyed it. I liked the voice with with Kyarath spoke, I'm not sure I would use one that sounded so... wordly, I guess, but still, the underlying personality was present. Short and sweet, this is a fun read with great writing.
(~Silverspark14) with her entry An Angel's Love
An Angel's LoveKyareth glanced to all sides and up to make sure she was alone. Then she knelt and drew aside a section of puffy cloud to reveal a Seeing Pool. The water was clean and bright inside a crystal basin, but a gesture from the angel caused it to cloud with color before resolving into an image. Kyareth leaned forward, her golden hair falling in front of her face. Soren usually walked home right about now-and there she was! Though generally unremarkable in her appearance and not helped by the plain jeans and black jacket she wore, she was gorgeous to Kyareth. Soren stopped at a crosswalk, looked both ways, and crossed.
Soren had barely stepped onto the street when Kyareth got a bad feeling in the pit of her stomach, a warning that something bad was going to happen. The angel had long learned to trust her instincts and looked more closely at elements of the scene below. It took only a moment for her eyes to
This was long and fun to read. I don't quite agree with some of the characterization, but given the limited info provided and the time limit, it was still an impressive rendition of this scene (Kyarath's Fall seems to be a favorite X3). It was interesting to see someone actually attempt to portray Soren, and for that I am happy as well. A good read and much appreciated entry.
THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED, I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
