Captive and Them were so well written, looking forward to reading some of their work. Godstick and White Women were also the work of talented veterans.


Godstick was also one of my selections.

Ok, who wrote Captive? Someone spill it. We have ways of making you talk! I have a guess, but gonna refrain from that.


Well, now that he's won, is it safe to say who wrote it?
I've been keeping that secret all week.

Hmm, should I draw it out and see is someone guesses?
Or just let the cat out of the bag, decisions, decisions.  

EDIT:

I'll leave it up to the fine members that participated.
Spill the beans or let the guessing commence. You decide.

No, I did not participate in the OWC.
But the author did contact me after I posted on the thread.

It's gotta be Pia's script.   Albert Gustaf Dahlman was the "Swedish" executioner.

Pia didn't enter a script and Don wouldn't be that obvious.

And congrats Captive btw.

I having a feeling playing with you would be very difficult.  I can't say I'm at all shocked by the outcome, either.  Very close nit group.  Friends of a circle make a square feel out of shape...

Congrats to all those who competed/completed the OWC.  There weren't many good scripts to pick from this time out, but I can name 4 that really shined.  Very good, these challenges, to get your mind stimulated and motivated.

P.S. Forgive my Ray moment above -- And even if the guess isn't write, the script is no doubt someone from S.S.  Which is a good thing.

Congrats to the writer of Captive, whoever he or she might be.  Based on Rick's review, I had already assumed this was the one he was going to pick.  Not my fave, but well done.

I know a few of the authors, the others not a clue.

But for Captive, I'll guess Phil Whitcroft.  I seem to remember his Dumb Animals script from last May's OWC, so I know that guy can write an interesting script.

Bloody good show.

This was my third OWC and my last.  I love the challenge but there is a vibe here on SS that makes it very difficult for people to break into your "click".  And if you aren't a member of the "click", you're considered an outsider.  It's a no win situation for some. Just thought I'd throw that out there.  In the 3 challenges I've participated in, I've tried to chime in a couple times on these forums but any attempts at communication were squashed by the constant bickering between members.

Anyway, congrats to the writer of Captive.  Captive, Them That's Dead and The God Stick were in my top 3.

Congrats to the Captive writer. Hopefully he/she's and SS regular. Not an implant from other sites just because of this challenge.

Can't wait for the reveal.

James

THE END.


What's with the attitude? If you won would you be satisfied knowing you won because you've hung around the longest or whether you actually deserved it or not. MP has that going for it at least, everyone new or old wishes each other luck.

Exactly, it'll get lonely here when it's just the few of you battling it out.

There is no "click".  Outside of the OWC there's just people reading each other's scripts.  People know those who read their scripts.  And people know when those people don't return reads.  It's that simple.  When you hang out here just during the OWC you might perceive a "click", but it's only the people who are regularly here.  That group changes with time as well.  The acceptance into this group is that you participate regularly. You can ask K(hamanananana) about this.  She gets it.
