Sorry it took so long to judge; I never expected to receive so many entries :)
Don't worry, I didn't forget about the other prizes:
1st place: 15 reviews, 5 comments, 3 shout-outs and I will continue the piece as a series if you want.
2nd place: 10 reviews, 3 comments, 2 shout-outs
3rd place: 5 reviews, 1 comment, 1 shout-out
Honorable Mention: 1 review
Also, don't forget that I will be reviewing all the entries that I received for the contest. If you haven't got yours reviewed yet, don't worry, I'll do it asap :)
Thank you all for entering. It was really tough to choose the winners, so a challenge for me too :).

The Cliffhanger Queen's Contest WINNERS

February 18, 2019


You, as an entrant in the Cliffhanger Tournament, have been summoned to the grand castle for the celebration and awarding of the winners. Naturally, the castle is on a cliff.

Seated in the grand hall, you rise with the rest of the guests for the grand procession.

Out of twenty-six knights in our first joust, there are only eight winners.

First, comes the Honorable Mentions. These three writers did a brilliant job and will each receive one golden review on a piece of their choices. Their names and winning pieces:

The Striped Mask - Majestically Awkward Manatee

Your stunning cliffhanger and the questions it made me ask: 
It was him.
Who is 'him'? Why doesn't he want her killed? Is he a good guy who will help her? How does she know him?

I Dare You - .audrey michelle.

Your cliffhanger was pretty interesting :)
Where is she? What happened to her? How did she get there? What happened to the guy?

The Twisting Dagger - Marerider

A very tense cliffhanger:
The dagger twisted sharply as Gregory saw the man prepare to strike and in that instant… he made his choice. 
Does he let her die? Kill the other man? What's his choice??? 

Next, come the two Cliffhanger Count/Countesses, each receiving five golden reviews:

Static - RNE

This is a really good one :)
End of recordings. 
What was outside that window? What happened that made the recordings come to an end? How does the story go on if that's the end of the recordings???

Fit for the Kings - CuriosityKilledTheCat

I loved this:
Suddenly, a cough came from behind me. I hadn't heard any footsteps.
Who's behind him? Is the house haunted? What does he do? If there is a ghost, is it good or bad?

The two Cliffhanger Duke/Duchesses, one of whom's stories also features a duchess. Ten golden reviews each:

Silver Blade - korra4life

This one stuck with me for a long time (I actually stayed awake at night thinking about it :).
The only thing Prince Chen can see is a freshly cut head rolling on the ground past his hiding place behind the thick, velvet curtains.
Whose head? Is it important? Does the prince escape? How?

They Are Coming - Christy Wisdom

I couldn't stop thinking about this one either :)
I never even felt it when I hit the ground. 
Who is the guy? What does he want with Lily? How is Eric in on it? Where is he taking her? What's with her shoulder?

And now, a huge drumroll reverberates throughout the hall as the Cliffhanger King/Queen comes down to receive the crown and fifteen golden reviews


The Life Lottery - catgirl_55555

No other place for this one :)
Darcy pulled the trigger.
No, it can't be the loaded gun!! What's so special about the teddy bear? What's the storekeeper's problem? Is it the loaded gun? Please, not :)
