We had a total of ten entries! I think that's pretty good for our first contest, yes?
FIRST PLACE: ~TehBubbles with "New Year's Eve"!
Winter Contest '11: New Year's EveOn New Year's Eve, Luka sat alone, curled up on her couch inside her comfortably warm apartment. Everyone's probably having a great time, she thought miserably, glancing out the window, through which she could see pretty white flakes lazily drifting downward. She adored how the light of the street lights was diffused by the white that was all around. Normally, she'd have loved to venture out into the chilly weather and fully enjoy the wintry scenery.
Her stomach rolled, as if to remind her why she wasn't going out tonight, and she stumbled to her feet to head to the bathroom. Gagging fruitlessly into the toilet, Luka knelt there shivering f
SECOND PLACE: ~LanternIce360 with "A Night At Home"!
A Night At Home - GakuLuka Contest 2011"Miss, are you alright? Do you need help?"
Even though she normally would have said, "Yeah, I'm fine. Just leave me alone." to anything along those lines, local random college student Megurine Luka was not currently in any position to allow her stubborn pride to get the best of her... Literally.

"Gakupo!" she called. "Gakupo, I'm-"
"Coming!" she heard. Suddenly, the door flew open. Standing in the doorway, looking slightly sheepish, was Gakupo.
"Why did you want me to come over today?" Luka said. "You called, and-"
"Look, Luka!" he said excitedly. "Snow!"
Luka looked back at the coating of snow that rested atop the ground, then back at Gakupo. "Gakupo, I know about the snow. I've spent ages walking through it, because SOMEONE called and told me to come over-!"
"Oh, don't get all cranky." he scoffed, taking her by her mittened hand. "I just want to play in the snow with you!"
Luka stared at him in mild disbelief. "Play? How old are we, three?"
"But Lukaaa!" Gakupo whined. "I even bought carrots for the snowman noses. And I never buy carrots!"
"Let me guess." Luka said, rolling her eyes and crossing her arms. "Your sister Gumi dropped by, bought too many carrots, and now you can'

Congratulations, and thanks to everyone who entered! If you didn't win this time, or you didn't get the chance to enter, you can look forward to other contests in the future. Maybe a spring contest?
