Yes. The names have been gathered. The choice, selected. From the staggering list of one (I really did not publicize my contest very well. There was just too much going on over the holidays. Nevertheless, we have a winner).
The winner for the 2013-2014 Christmas Vampire Contest on matthewdryan.com is Alex from https://cirsova.wordpress.com/ . Check out their site and congratulate them. The winning entry is: “Probably the Relic of Saint Januarius.” I don’t know what that is, but I’m sure Lucian val Drasmyr can make use of it. Hmmm … just looked it up on the Net. Apparently, the dried blood of Saint Januarius consistently liquefies into liquid blood on a regular basis. For those interested, here’s the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Januarius. I have to say, that is a pretty cool answer, and probably would have deserved the prize anyway.
Happy Trails All!
