Congratulations to chloe!
So close among the top three. I'd have been satisfied had any of these been the winner. And...congratulations judges. I appreciated your comments and I read all the comments you made to everyone else's chapters. I can say unequivocally that I found your comments fair and to the point!

A well deserved win for Chloe. Congratulations!

To echo what WWB mentioned after reading the comments/the table I also feel that the judging by all was fair and just.

Many Thanks for selecting my chapter! I'm surprised and thrilled to pieces! I was in some pretty good company! So excited to see where these talented writers take the story from here- almost makes me wish there were more than ten rounds. Thanks again for everyone's feedback and insight- this is a really supportive place to hone my skills. Happy Writing!
Chloe

Chloe~ It is a thrill to see your chapter take this round. I think it is an excellent addition to this storyline. The only bummer is that now you won’t be contributing any more chapters to it. I found your additions to be thrilling!
I hope you take a look at the projects page and decide to contribute something there. Either a short story or take part in the collaborative MASHing portion of the project. I think your fresh and creative style would fit in perfectly there.
Congrats!

Thanks dogdeity!
I'm really excited to have won! Now I can enjoy reading the other chapters- no pressure (lol) but I will miss contributing! That's the fun part! Thanks for your encouragement- I'm still navigating my way around the site but would love to get in on some other projects! I really hope you'll contribute a chapter 4! all the best.
Chloe

Hi everyone, I'm a new member here. Enjoyed the chapter that Chloe wrote, great writing and story line!! I was wondering how to get involved in it...Any answers will be greatly appreciated. God Bless, Jeff

Chloe's chapter was the third out of ten. I recommend reading Persephonie's opener, then my chapter, then Chloe's again to get a full handle on the story. When you feel like you know the characters well, go to the bottom of Chloe's chapter and click on Write the Next Chapter. Then you'll be eligible for round four. You can also start new stories using the menu on the right. Look around. Read a bunch. Find something that intrigues you. And go!

Sidenote to Chloe: I'm hardly the gold standard. It just takes something really good to knock my socks off.
