Yeah I really had a struggle myself, particularly when it comes to length, which explains why I've left it so much to the last minute. I was deliberately holding back to see what other people entered first but then wound up bashing my head against the wall crying, 'This can't go any shorter!'

Anyway, I'm putting it in now even if I'm not particularly happy that half the story is summarised.

Oh well, I guess you can't expect to win every time. Good luck everyone.

For the next context the word limit will change, though whether it is up or gone I still need to decide.
I'm not going to jump threads with this, but felt it necessary to point out.

Can we change the winner's name to a bold black or something, Tau? Just something to signify the champs of the contest for a couple months perhaps?

Sounds like tasty pastry to me! Anything to distinguish the winners I'm for, BP!

They've escaped..? Impossible! Who let them out of the cell, hmm?
