    I don't care how much you've won recently, if this isn't on the front page come Monday, I will be positively mystified, good man! A wonderful, spellbinding write.

    Take care and all the best.

    Wonderful inspiration for a piece of creative writing. As Ben said, this deserves to win.

    I really enjoyed this one Danny and, although the story is different it reminded me of a song from long before you were even born :)

    Daniel,
    Magnificent! I had long wanted to commemorate rusalki but you have done it so much better than I could hope to I feel satisfied with your work.
    You might find great joy in the Rusalka trilogy by C. J. Cherryh.

      Thank you Larry! I will be sure to. I spent a long time looking at some shorter synopsises before I wrote it. Was kind of transfixed by the lore behind it!

    I can see why this truly striking piece won...
    I mean it's hard to take an original idea and truly make it your own. They are suspected to be a sort of evil mermaid in modern culture but anyway..

    towards the lady perched
    naked, upon the rocks;
    unmatted auburn curls
    draped over her breasts,

    This was the stranza that made it for me the images the words everything just hits you.

    Stunning.
