Winners of the 50th #SatSunTails Microfiction Competition

You can help by promoting next week’s #SatSunTails on your blog or by giving the post a +1 or a tumblr reblog or click the ‘tweet this’ link up on the right hand side or share from the facebook fan page or retweet from my twitter page to spread the word.

Or, even better, go on the #SatSunTails twitter search results and retweet other entrants.

The more people that hear about #SatSunTails, the more entries there are and the better the competition becomes!

If you are on twitter and you’d like an @reply every weekend to remind you that the competition is open then please leave a note regarding this along with your twitter handle in the comments of this post so I can set that up for you.

But for now, let’s get to the winners!

Disappointed by the number of entries this week. Any help as to why such a low level?

colourful induction

Might even have won if it hadn’t been for the misspelling of ‘capital’ as ‘capitol’.

Irritatingly good. Winking smile

The Calling

A bank of thick roiling clouds obscured the sky, lending a darker and more insidious air to the chilly fall night. Sensing this change in the ambient spectral energies of the capital city, Ariadne removed the soft kidskin glove and flexed her fingers vigorously.

Turning her hand palm up, she concentrated her power on the arcane symbols and pentagram she’d burned into the skin so many years ago. The thick keloid scar tissue began to glow, first softly and then with ever more effulgent light.

Intoning the words of conjuration in a low, measured voice she focused her attention on the Otherworld, coaxing forth the eldritch denizen she required. At length, an arcane ember formed with a swirling burst of kaleidoscopic hues so colourful, induction of the creature into the realm of mankind was secured.

The summoning completed, she dispatched the imp to wreak what havoc she required with nary a thought for the consequences.

  1. H.P. Liebekraft is a teammate of mine at Undead in the Netherworld. She is likely going to flog herself mercilessly for this error.
    I may participate in this contest sometime. I'll make sure to double-check my capitol capitals! 😉
    At any rate, I will plus-one it for you.
