Hoist the colors, proud storytellers!
What's boiling in the bananafish kitchen (the news!)
Thank you all for your ongoing sustain!!! The contest is evolving awesomely and the community is growing steady notwithstanding the crypto-winter + the torrid summer. If you know other great steemians feel free to invite them to share the fun.
Our fiction master alchemist @calluna will write and curate the 24th edition! Thank you Cal, I'm eager to see how everyone will develop your story, considering that I already sunk my fangs in it during a tasty preview.
Alright, let's cut the chatter, brave storytellers, the winners of the 5 @steembasicincome shares are:
@gwilberiol: he wins the 1st prize of 4 SBI shares. A very fresh story where he displayed an impeccable dialogue technique who immersed the reader in a story of innocence and wonder. It's not easy to reproduce teenagers thoughts and reactions from their perspective, in a convincing way. The interpretation about the cumuloid was also very original and the whole story had an aura of poetry.
@ediblecthulhu: 2nd place and 2 SBI shares for our sparkling new friend, herald of the Gods from the outer space! He managed to create a fantastic mood and there's something magic in that contact between the couple of teens and the benevolent entity. The knowledge of the supernatural in a single, neat package.
@calluna: she wins 2 SBI thanks to a well-deserved popular vote! As always, she skilfully built the tension all along the story thanks to a rhetorical repetition. Everyone have been totally engaged and, personally, I still wonder who really is Vicky.
.. see you all tomorrow with another story and a rich pot of 8 @steembasicincome shares!
