We have received 8 wonderful entries to The 1st Short Challenge! Thank you everyone who participated. :DDD
As there are so many entries I would highly recommend voters leave a little bit of time to read through the fics. Don't read them all chronologically if you don't want to -- read the summaries and select the ones you "fancy" first, then read through others when you can.
The vote will be collected via the poll on this post.
Voting will be open until Saturday 19th March 2011 @ 23:59 GMT.
Read the entries from the list below and then select your favourite from the poll. You CAN vote if you submitted a fic for the challenge but you CANNOT vote for your own fic or ask people to vote for you. Any such votes will not be counted.
The writers will be revealed when the winners are announced.
The three highest scoring fics (1st, 2nd and 3rd) will get Winner's Banners and there will also be a Mod's Choice too. As this is the first challenge of its kind, I will also be awarding all 8 participants with individual participation banners.
Here is a Masterlist of all the entries received. Each one has been posted here to ag_fics . This list contains the title, rating, theme used, word count, warning/spoilers and the summary (In italics).

I would also be grateful if you would leave some feedback on the challenge itself on THIS post. I would very much appreciate your comments on how the challenge was run: i.e. would you have preferred more writing time? Is there anything you would like to be done differently next time? And so on. Again, leave your comments for me below. :DDD
