Upping the ante, battle 1

The first official, regularly scheduled battle! Whooooo! This time there will be four weeks between the announcement of the secret ingredient and the time the stories are due. Please only sign up if you believe you'll be able to complete the challenge.

Please refer to the overview and rules for information on what this means and on the timeline, and feel free to contact me with any questions!

The first non-official round of battles has been completed! In the battle between dragonessasmith and counterfeitcoin, challenger 1 was dragonessasmith and challenger 2 was counterfeitcoin.

Now for scoring I averaged the votes for each category individually to come up with the average score, then added them together for the winner.

Without further ado.

Challenger 1, dragonessasmith:
Use of secret ingredient: 3.3
Originality: 4.3
Presentation: 3.5
Quality of writing: 3.8
For a total score of 14.9

Challenger 2, counterfeitcoin:
Use of secret ingredient: 3.9
Originality: 4.5
Presentation: 4.7
Quality of writing: 4.5
For a total score of 17.6

And the winner is...uh...me. I've gotta say, I was really hoping it was going to be dragonessasmith because I feel kind of silly, like I've done this just to toot my own horn. I swear I haven't.

Stories may now be posted everywhere with your names attached.

Now sign ups for the first official round will begin!

Battle Confusion

Just to make it official: Voting will close on the night of June 17 at (hopefully) midnight CST, at which time the writers and winner will be revealed, and sign ups for the next battle will open.
