Oh, man, Deb. I thought I got an honorable mention because we're friends, not because the writing was good.
Honestly, the thought crossed my mind that if I win or get another runner-up this year, people may actually think you ARE being partial. I truly considered not entering because of that. Not because I think you WOULD be (Believe me, I know you and I know you don't have a cheating bone in your body) but because it might look that way to other members. Of course, I suppose it would be the same if Vile placed or won again and I know she's entering something (at least, I think I remember her saying she is).
Deb is the fairest person I know. In fact, she's so fair, you can call her Snow White. (You'll get that one in a minute). Groan.
