This was one of our most entertaining competitions to date. There were some incredibly original stories and poems entered.

Our common tater summed up the competition the best: "When the chips were down, some authors dug deep, and many authors put together crisp entries. A few of the plots were half-baked, others peeled off sentences which were rather gratin on the nerves. In the end, the winner was a force tuber reckoned with." (Blame Alan, he started it!)

So, without further ado, the results:

1st Place ($200): naughtyannie >> Pyramus and Thisbe
2nd Place ($100): Tashtego >> Roger
3rd Place (Potato of your choice): CurlyGirly >> Confessions of a Phone Sex Operator Sorry CG! laughing9

Congratulations to the winners! I'll be in touch soon regarding your prizes.

Making up the Top 10, were these excellent entries:

AbigailThornton >> Lizzie's Lost World
clum >> Premature Ejaculation Man
DirtyMartini >> In Search Of A Young Spud I Mean Stud
sprite >> Future Steph
eiffel2007 >> Fairy Fairy Quite Contrary
elitfromnorth >> Choking the Blue Snake
AmandaJilling >> The Case of the Curious Clitoris

Thank you to everyone who entered into the spirit of things, and made this competition such fun.

A new competition will be announced shortly.

Cheers,

Nicola

Hey CG...I would tell Nic you need your potato for dinner this weekend and insist she air freight it to you from Australia...

I guarantee you'll never get another potato again...

WooHoo!! Doing my Happy Potato Dance. Congratulations to everyone. hello1 There really were a lot of great stories in the comp!


Is a distilled potato, by an chance, an option??? drunken If not, then a lovely and simplistic "potato" badge with no explanation would be a nice addition to my page. laughing8 It would make me smile, and I'm pretty sure I would be the envy of all other Lushies. Also, we can then avoid that whole pesky FDA issue when importing produce.

I judge a lot of Lush Comps...

(Nicola: "Well, you do fuck all else...")

AHEM... And this one was the toughest I've done. I'll include a quote, since it's after the event, that I sent to my fellow judges in the course of our deliberations:

"To judge BETTER writers than me is a real trial. ALL OF THESE PEOPLE ARE AT LEAST AS GOOD AS MY BEST. (Some are quite a bit better.)"

And one more quote from our discussions:

"Jesus, Nic, the standard at the top end is getting fucking ridiculous on Lush! I'm especially impressed at how some of these writers have developed in the time I've been reading them here."

The judging panel, (and it changes all the time,) take the competitions VERY seriously. When the standard is this high, one finds oneself in the HORRIBLE position of trying to OBJECTIVELY rank one writer against another, and IT'S SO DIFFICULT!!!!!!

For the first time ever in my Lush judging career, my first choice won! (Congratulations NA AND CG!!!!!)

Entrants should know that A GREAT DEAL of discussion and discourse happens in the course of competition judging. It can indeed get quite heated!

TWO out of my top three got placed. (Three out of my top four were placed.)

EVERY STORY I READ DESERVED AT LEAST AN EP RIBBON. EVERY ONE made me think, "Ah FOR FUCK'S SAKE!!!!! HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!!!"

As a regular story mod I think I can say that we occasionally deal with 'work that needs work'...

The competitions properly showcase THE VERY BEST OF WHAT LUSH STORIES ASPIRE TO, and it's my honour and pleasure to read such quite fantastic work.

To EVERYONE who entered, thank you for your talent. To the winners, YOU DESERVE IT.

(I LOVE this fucking place!!!!!)

xx Stephanie.

FUCK All Y'All... I've never talked properly to Curly Girl in my life!!!!!! (And I might never talk to Clum or Sprite again...) I don't know Annie and I don't know Tashetgo...

SERIOUSLY... The competitions are High End WORK... Like I said, we've all watched these writers blossom... SOME are personal friends of mine... That CAN'T enter into a decision about quality or placing... YOU JUDGE THE PIECE... ("It is the tale, not who tells it...")

(Personally, I never look at who's written the piece... TO BE HONEST, I was surprised that 'Pre-Ejaculation Man' was written by my friend Callum...)

COMMENT:

CONFESSIONS OF A PRE EJACULATION MAN.

(I LIKED this... Very funny. But I don't come to Lush just to laugh. Even given the subject. I come here to come. There's a balance. One thing I WILL say about this one is that WOMEN might dig it... ("Aren't Men Crap? How I wish I didn't simply LOVE sucking his cock....") But, Priapic Prince that I am, I didn't quite get it... That said, a funny, brilliant and engaging piece...)





Now, I post these observations so that possible future competition entrants can see how we DISCUSS and consider the work and argue merit. (I may well get into trouble for doing so...)

There is A LOT of too-ing and fro-ing before a decision is made.

But we take the work seriously.

Because that's what it deserves.

xx SF
