"I love you," his last words. But his love letters showed that was a lie.

He'd never known what it meant to be human. He wished he never found out.

A wicked grin spread across his face- he'd kill them all and leave no trace.

She'd been told to reach for the stars, but she never knew what that meant.

Nothing could separate her from him. They would be together for eternity...Or so they thought.

She stared bleakly over the ravaged wastelands, wondering how her people had fallen so far.

I wondered how the world, turning ever slowly, could move on and forget so quickly.

Hello hello! Thank you for your patience! Without further ado, the winners are:

Third prize - @fraey, with this entry:

He wanted them to learn the trick of playing dead and not the permanent state.


Second prize - @Asith, who made me giggle with this:

The geese plan their final attack. They rally around the one with the golden egg.


Aaaaaaaaand our first prize is...@AndName, who managed to spin a bleak narrative into just two sentences:

In the beginning three friends dreamed the world. By the end they were just sad.


Well done to our winners, and also to everybody who participated! I'm not exaggerating when I say that there were absolutely masses of brilliant entries, and picking my favourites was a real challenge. Thank you all for taking part! :D
The backs of my eyes hum with things I've never done.
