Slash/Backslash 3.0 Winner's Cirlce


The Slash/Backslash 3.0 winners are in!
Judges: avioleta, Capricorn75, Conversed, and theladyingrey

When SBS began accepting entries on August 1, 2011, we had no idea what to expect; we were absolutely blown away by the results.  Although we had hoped for a strong turnout, we had no idea how much excitement this round of SBS would generate.  

We received 48 fabulous entries by a wonderfully talented group of slash writers.

The caliber and quantity of entries was so high, that the judges had as much difficulty as our SBS readers in determining their favorites.

So, without further ado, here are this year’s Slash/Backslash winners:

A huge shout out to Adair7 for reading my first draft and giving me some serious concrit, and to RD Merriwhether for endless decisions and the patience of a rare Frere, but we won't go there, and it wouldn't be this without that. As well as PTB for a giving me a special run through.
