2019 Valentine’s Day Contest Winners!
Love has been conquered. All the rotted heart-shaped boxes of discount chocolate, the dead and withered flowers, and the unclaimed and abandoned teddy bears have been tossed into a giant blender, liquidated, and consumed by the forces of darkness and despair.
It was yummy in the tummy and I am now diabetic.
Yes, this post is rather late. I’ve been super busy lately. However, I will be more up to date with things moving forward.
Here are you winners!
Congratulations to /u/CreamySpudz for their winning story:
As stated, /u/creamyspudz will be rewarded with the following prizes:
$5 Amazon Digital Gift Card (Donated by yours truly and Commander-in-Creep, /u/Human_Gravy)
Customized SSS flair – We shall come up with something totally rad for you!
Free eBook copy of Horror d’Oeuvres – Bite-Sized Tales of Terror the 1st ShortScaryStories Charity book project which has raised over $1000 for Scares That Care, an approved 501(c)(3) that fights the REAL MONSTERS of childhood illness, burns and breast cancer by helping families that are experiencing these extraordinary hardships cope with the financial burden. Or the winner may claim the freshly baked Horror d’Oeuvres – It Came from the Snack Bar!, the follow-up anthology featuring many of the more recent authors to scare the chocolate bonbons out of us and hopefully match and exceed the success of our previous anthology!

Congrats to all the runner-ups and everyone else who submitted a story! Without the participation, the sub wouldn’t be as wonderful as it is!
With Valentine’s Day finished, we’ve officially tapped out on holidays until the end of the year. The next contest will either be a collaboration between subreddits like our /r/SleepSpell Contest or /r/CryoSleep Contest. Maybe a List Story Contest (Yes, I know people out there grumbled and cursed my name at the mention of that) or some other theme. We shall see!
For now, we return to our regularly scheduled unprompted tales of twisted terror!
