After much deliberation, reading, rereading, and judging we finally have our winners for the Everfree Northwest Scribblefest 2017!
I want to first congratulate all of you who submitted your hard written stories! We had a field of 36 contestants, and that’s amazing! Thank you so much for all your hard work that you do! Now, without further ado, our finalist and their respective categories!
Twilight Sparkle Award
Ebon Quill with “Slouching Towards Canterlot”
Twilight was a tough fight, and it got down to the wire in the end between the final four stories! Excellent job, Ebon Quill, writing a story that showed you did the research and made sure everything was picture perfect! Just like Twilight herself would love!
Loganberry with “The Book of Ended Lives”
This story was gorgeous, and it was a clean sweep with all 6 judges voting for it. Both pieces in this category had beautiful, flowing prose, but ultimately the gorgeous flair that Loganberry had for his piece won him the prize! Beautifully written, Loganberry!
Rainbow Dash Award
Novel-Idea with “The Cycle of Flame”
To win in this category, the story had to be 200% cooler than all the rest, and Novel-Idea’s piece swept this category with all 6 finalists voting for it. It was a tough decision, but his ability to write action, turmoil, and involve a side of Philomena that we don’t see in the show made for an amazing piece of fiction. Way to be awesome, Novel-Idea!
Pinkie Pie Award
Posh with “The Next Best Thing”
We wanted to have a funny, snickering, hilarious story to win this category. Posh actually manage to make us smile in this one as well. His piece was equal parts funny, heartwarming, and sarcastic, just like we’d expect if Diamond Tiara were interacting with Spike and Starlight Glimmer. Posh, you were nominated in 4 categories, and we all loved your story by degrees! Excellent work!
Apple Bottoms with “Nihtmer Niht”
The Applejack Award was one of the most contested categories we had for judging. Ultimately, Nihtmer Niht ended up winning out in the end for being very true to the show. The theme showed strongly throughout the story, and we loved the Aesop at the end, which really made this story win. Hard work paid off in the end, didn’t it, Apple Bottoms?
The Hat Man with “Freedom Flourishes”
The Fluttershy award has to be my personal favourite category, because I love heartwarming stories. This story made all of us tear up at the end. The Hat Man expertly blended past with present through a series of flashbacks in this heartwarming tail, that took all of the judges by surprise. Freedom Flourishes was an extremely touching piece, The Hat Man. Fluttershy would be proud.
