• More Most Dangerous Game Seventh Place Winner: The Mailmare

     Pen Stroke — This story explores wonderfully what a simple thing can do to bring a sense of happiness, a sense of civilization back to a war-torn world. Derpy features well in the main role of this story, and each letter she delivers and receives seems to heal the world around her bit by bit. But I believe the strongest part of the story is when Derpy, at the moment she is about to give up her task, gets a chance to feel what its like to be on the other end of the mail delivery.   

    Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
