Thanks to all who entered! I managed to scrape up at least 3 entries for each prompt for the winners this time! Very special thanks to stripedfly1001 - I followed your instructions on how to make links so I could put them in this time.

I will follow all the winners. 1st place winners get 5 reviews and 15 likes, 2nd place get 4 reviews and 10 likes, and 3rd place get 3 reviews and 5 likes. Let me know in the comments below what pieces you would like reviewed or if you would like them random. Also, I've got a lot of schoolwork and I don't want these reviews to be a rush job, so please be patient! I promise I will get them all done in the end!

Thanks again! All the entries were amazing to read!

    Congrats to everyone who entered: I've read most of the entries and they were all amazing. Thanks so much @Ellie, for hosting such an interesting and complex contest. It was so much fun to write.
    I think that you should pick out anything that you would like to read or like. If you need help (I have more than 100 pieces), just let me know. I don't mind giving you a few places to start. Right now, I suggest 'The Zenana,' 'Replay,' or 'Thief' if you like longer stories.

    Wow another second place, thank you so much! Four reviews is a lot, I honestly can't believe you're doing this. You're free to like whatever you feel, but if you could review my pieces Chimneysweep Bird, beautiful woman, the librarian, and The Hunt. Thanks so much again!
