Now, if this had been a TV show, this is where we'd cut to commercials before announcing the top three. Thankfully, you will not have to endure that. For these next few stories, our host will say a few words before presenting each story.
So! Hello again everypony. These little snippets will represent only my own (Zanzibar’s) thoughts on the presented winners. For our third place, we have a story that I enjoyed quite a bit. It shows an interesting side of Luna, with a pairing I had honestly never even considered. With more polish, it could probably have taken a higher position, but I have to praise the author for what he achieved in such a short amount of time. I present to you our Third Place winner:
Author: Present Perfect
Chrysalis x Luna
For his Third Place position, Present Perfect wins one T-shirt of his choice from We Love Fine.
And that brings me to present our second place winner, doesn't it? Well! How about a tale of the moon? Of a lonely cellist, harbouring a secret just waiting to be told? Recently posted to EQD, I present:
All the Stars in the Sky
Octavia x Luna
For our Second Place position, Lynked receives $50, to use however he want. The cash is his to command.
Finally we then have the Top Cat, the crème de la crème, The top of the line, etc. Our first place winner took an unexpected approach to his romance. Follow Luna in a tale of intrigue and heartache, betrayal and desperation. I present our First Place winner:
The Knight Princess
Author: Alex J
Shining Armor x Luna
Our Grand Prize winner receives a spiffing $150, to use however he want. The cash is his to command.
And with that, this contest is officially over! We hope you’ll enjoy reading the contest entries and expect to see another contest very soon. The next contest will be of a smaller, more light hearted scope, but I hope you’ll all consider joining us again.
