With all apologies to Lady Yates, who totally rules, S*P was the first web comic I ever read and to this day is still my number one. I actually use quite a few of them when deal with my RL friends. They never get old.

Hey everyone! Since there were people who posted amazing stories who, unfortunately, didn't manage to sign up in time, I've linked all the 'official' entries here. These are the ones you're voting for, and since everyone's got their entries in, I decided to open voting a few days early. You've still got a week from Sunday to get your votes in, but this stage usually goes pretty quick, I think. Remember: Only those listed here may vote and be eligible for voting!

In no particular order:

SMURF

FOOT

NU

ALLI

PONCE'S FIRST STORY (which is the one she told you all to vote for)

PONCE'S SECOND STORY (which is also really good)

PS: Remember to send your vote to me via PM entitled My WG Vote.

We're still waiting for a vote from Ponce, but she has until next Sunday, so it's not much of a rush. Patience, young grasshopper!

The image? Thanks! It's made by SpaceCase, and it's actually quite old, from the old forum. He sent it to me a bit ago, and I just got around to putting it back up recently. Glad you like it, it's all his work. ^_^

Well, apart from the stuff in the background. That's Andrew Lloyd Webber's...

All right, peeps, I've got all the votes in. Now, it's up to you - do you guys want to know the winner now, or keep the suspense and wait until Sunday?

Well that trumps all, doesn't it? I was going to wait anyway, because I'm just the slightest bit sadistic - just a smidgen, really - then Mane had to go and pull out that card. So -

Drumroll please!

Tinu! Congratulations on winning the First New Writer's Group! I can write a drabble of unknown quality for you at some point in the future as a prize, or you can walk away right now with the surety of a job well done! *glomp*
