Well done stripey.

I liked Bang too Pip.

I do hope we get to find out who wrote all the stories. I admit I didnt vote early on as I loved too many of them as much as each other. I look forward to rereading them with the authors name attached.

Brilliant stories.

You should all be congratulated.

one of the tragedies of Irish Myths is called the Children of Lir where the evil stepmother turns the three kids into Swans for 900 years. This along with a lot of Irish myths were all rewritten by monks to have a whole isn't it great that christianity came ending complete losing what the original stories were along the way.

The quote at the end is Saxon and from Beowulf. It wasn't supposed to be there but someone clipped it from my signature when i sent the pm with the story. I didn't bother complaining

Why didn't you tell me? :roll:
That bit at the end put me off the whole story. I thought you were being too pretentious by including Gaelic, which nobody would understand. :lol: :lol:

How about once the champions are announced the authors are added to the stories and put up for access once again.
