Honorable Mentions
Teresa Cypher | @Teresa_Cypher
George says: Teresa’s story was awesome, I laughed my ass off. It’s the same kind of crap I give my beautiful wife and the same attitude she’d give right back. It is the kind of sarcasm that is playful without the backbiting. Give a little and take a little. Who knew a little ass could do so much.

Sheilagh Lee | @SweetSheil
George says: At first I felt a little lost as the conversation was going on I thought she was a captive. The ending was where I really liked it. Damn I didn’t expect her to be a zombie commander. It was a little shocking to see her picking herself up and piecing herself back together. He followed through with his order but his ass may be the last person she slays when she resurrects. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, in this case a zombie woman.
Week 75 Winner

George says: I love Silver’s story, the emotion between the team members was cool. The imagery of the gargoyles both menacing and vaporizing when hit with the bullets was slick. Never thought of a gargoyles as a hunter rather more of a protector. Great twist.

Ignoring the steaming corpses littering the alley, Varad felt like freaking Hansel—only the birdies obliterating this particular trail of breadcrumbs were vultures and he wasn't hunting an old witch. He smelled blood, tasted the coppery sharpness of it around the shallow drags he pulled on his cigarette. His Gretel waited at the entrance. Sade Marquis. FBI agent. Dead sexy. She racked a new magazine in her 9mm, the metallic sound echoing. He'd already reloaded his specially modified .44 Mag. If six rounds of HE didn't take down their targets, they were dog food anyway.

He muttered, “Roman, you owe me big time, brother!”

He was only here because of his blood debt to Roman. Hunting rogue gargoyles was a pain in the ass. Literally. He rolled his head on his neck, vertebrae grinding like ancient granite. This whole fiasco had been the Fed's idea. A grating sound brought his head up. One idiot rogue tried to sneak up on Sade. Varad raised the Mag, squeezed. Acrid smoke from his cigarette danced with the fog crawling across the docks as powdered granite swirled and settled, just so much dust in the wind.

The bitch Fed glared. “I can do this. Alone.”

“Like hell. Roman’ll take my head if you get hurt.”

“I need one alive.”

“Yeah, good luck with that.” A bullet whistled past his ear, ricocheted. He whirled but before he could fire, the gargoyle behind him disintegrated.

Sade smirked and holstered her weapon. “Or not.”

Congratulations Silver, Teresa, and Sheilagh! Don't forget to claim your badges and display them with pride. You certainly earned it! :)
