Overall Winner

@DavidALudwig

I loved the whole imagery, and the almost poeticness of it.

Winning Entry

Dawn is coming. Sooth, alone in all the Night, is blind. Sooth alone can see the coming day

He sits on the mountaintop and waits. Light warmth filters through the cold of Night. In the valleys and dens below the people revelled in the sickening weight of sin. Sooth’s body is worn by altitude, wind and cold—a small price to keep his spirit free.

For years mystical wisdom was ascribed to the blind hermit of the mountain and there were people who would climb the sharp rocks to hear him speak. However the climb was hard and life below was easy. In time people stopped coming.

Now at last Dawn shattered the dome of the sky and illuminated the world ruled by Night. The people were made blind by the light blending in Sooth’s soul and opening his eyes.

Sooth wept, the world stretched before him, glorious and terrible.

And thanks
