Well, it's bedtime and I can't sleep. I wanna hear a story!!!

But not just any story, no... that would be too easy. I wanna hear a noir fairy tale.


THE PREMISE: Take a fairy tale and make it Noir.

THE RULES: * Must be based on an existing fairy tale - doesn't have to be a popular one, but at least point me to the original, if it's an obscure one.
* All entries must be posted no later than 11:59 PM, November 30, 2007.
* Spelling and grammar count.
* Please be realistic with story length. If it takes three posts to tell, it's too long!!

THE PRIZES: I'm workin' on it...but there will be prize(s).

I know the last couple of contests were on the restrictive and difficult side, and rewriting a fairy tale as Noir may not be the simplest thing, but there are very few restrictions and rules this time - so let's see what you've got!

Yey!!! I won :-) Blast I can't get that grin to look big enough!!! Woo Hoo!!!!

Ahem... but well done to all, this was my favourite contest so far in terms of writing and reading.

But I'd just got this great deal on some drumsticks I was going to sell for the ongoing drumroll... bother! Out of pocket on that one!

Oooooh. 3rd place! :-) I agree with Stooby as this was my favorite contest so far. Even better than that baby pics someone ran not too long ago! ;-)
Can't wait for the next one to be announced!

Great entries by everyone, but lets all given a big round of applause once again for our currently unnamed judges and of course our lovely contest coordinator, Anikka.

As far as drumsticks go, the only ones I have are still leftover from Thanksgiving dinner! :-P

Judges were Breitkat, Ima Vagabond, and me. I'm sorry, I usually do announce who the judges were, but I'm all at sixes and sevens right now.

Thanks to all you judges. I know it wasn't easy. It was a ton o' fun, though.

Congrats to the other winners,too. I enjoyed all the entries. What a cool contest, Ani.

The only problem I have is I can't get rid of the "drumming" in my head.lol

Congratulations to Stooby, Brick, Ctown, and Violet, for their stories. And great job to all the writers, this was an incredibly difficult contest to judge. All of the stories were very well-written, and creative. Fantastic job, everyone!! ;-D
