first off: I am sorry. I know I am 5 days late but better late then never, right?
Anyways, this was the toughest decision I ever had to make. It was the first challenge I used and I did my best to decide on the right stories.
I picked three that really stood out to me. They are all different and it was heard to decide on #1 because basically I loved them all. There were so many beautiful stories that I was seriously overwhelmed. So thank you for responding, to me y'all are winners.
Alright, enough talking. Here we go.
3rd Place: One thing by MyHeartIsWithBieber
Frankie, I love you. You are very talented and after "Roxanne" this is another beautiful oneshot. I loved the detailed despription and intensity. Very well written. Congrats.
2nd Place: Someone Like You by iBeliebnMiley
This one shot really got me, touched my heart. It is unique and the story line is unusual. I loved that through all the tragedy you still made me laugh at some point. I am normally not a fan of endings that are not 100% happily ever after but this time, it was perfect. Congrats.
And finally, 'insert drum roll'...
1st Place: Last Friday Night by bieber_fever2011
I've told you this before. I have a lot of respect for you as a writer, especially for your immense talent. This story as a whole is beautiful, just stunning. The plot line is simple, yet funny and interesting. The way you incorporated the lyrics is how I imagined it to be when I issued the challenge. It supports the story line and gives it a special twist. The story is beautiful on the out and inside and I love how easily you get to connect with the main character. Wonderfully written, well done.
Congrats, you deserve it.
So that's it I guess for this challenge. I am willing to consider your ideas for future challenges. Tweet those and your thoughts on the winners to me @bieberfanfic.
