Thanks.

I have to be very honest and say I thought "A Portrait Of Kitty" was superior. "On The Threshold" was good, too, but I always favor humor over pathos; it's genetic or something.

And thank you to Rowena for issuing the challenge; I never can come up with ideas, so it's a good thing to spur me on. And my subscribers at Fanfiction.net look forward to new Crawlage, no matter how silly I get.

Wish I had more time to read everyone's Instances ... they seem to be very meaty and intriguing ...

:cry I didn't win.

Just kidding!

:clap Congratulations to Elfdame!!!

I realized later that I completely forgot to incorporate the Halloween theme into either of my stories. I was too engrossed in concocting them. So, just assume that both of my stories occurred on October 31! ;)

How cute! I had trouble working Halloween into my idea, but then decided they'd both dress up (which is really a pretty *loose* way of working it in) and it snowballed from there. I would like to make it even longer, but the novel is more important. I can still add to it after November, if the Lord gives me days.

I hope you'll post both of yours at fanfiction.net. I know a lot of people would find them enchanting! Let me know if you do and I'll tell my friends there to check 'em out!
