Winners Announcement:

Honorable Mentions

Ryan Strohman | @rastrohman
George says: Ryan’s story was pretty funny, I could see the look on the faces of the cops as they stare at the monitors with that WTF moment but I also got a sense that the zombies are just around the corner heading to the booth.
  Jeffrey Hollar| @Klingorengi
George says: Those murderous mouse traps and the Rise of the House of Mouse, sorry for the Planet of the Apes reference, was downright hilarious. Those little guys are on a vendetta now.

Robin Abess | @Angelique_Rider
George says: The creep factor goes into to overload from sensory deprivation to sensory realization in Robin Abess’ story. The awwww shit meter tipped when the gargantuan menace entered. The sensory imagery was great.

Week 41 Winner

Bronwyn | @KelseyPotter13

George says: My choice for the winner of Thursday Threads is Bronwyn’s story was strong and sad. Are dad and sis werewolves too or did they watch what happened to mom only to relive it with Tobias. I felt the compassion and the sadness only to wonder what happens tomorrow.


“What do we do now?” Sarah asked, watching as I applied pressure to the wound with a thick pad of gauze, willing the bleeding to stop.

“Do?” I repeated, looking up at her in surprise. “We find the ones who did this. They will pay.” I shifted my fingers slightly to check that no blood was soaking through the gauze. Satisfied that the bleeding had at least slowed enough that it would be safe to continue, I seized a roll of white cotton bandages and began binding the injury tightly.

“I’m not hurting you, am I?” I said anxiously, pausing briefly as I wound. “It’s not too tight?”

Tobias shook his head, his eyes round and wide and shiny behind his round glasses. “I’m okay, Daddy.”

I tied off the bandage, took my little son into my arms, and kissed his forehead lightly. “Everything’s going to be okay,” I assured him.

Tobias looked up at me fearfully. “Am I gonna turn into a werewolf now, too, Daddy?”

“I don’t know, Toby.” I held out an arm and enfolded Sarah in my embrace as well, holding my little family close—all I had left in the world. “I just don’t know.”

Congratulations Bronwyn, Ryan, Jeffrey, and Robin! Claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it! :)
