- Planguy&Shizuma vs. Ali&Rawles re: The Painted Lady. Two teams enter. ONLY ONE LEAVES.
- As it turns out...Sokka/Toph = A++++. Also, Shizuma is mean.

- Did we mention that we would all marry Sokka? For real, for real.
- Next week: The Beach, The Avatar and the Fire Lord, Zuko, dramatic readings, and New York Comicon!
Ali's Pick: Psyche's Contemplation by etrangere.
Shizuma's Pick: Sokka Gets No Respect. Sokka-related multimedia content and other fun stuff.
Planguy's Pick: Avatar Scrubs by swan2swan.
Rawles' Pick: praiseofshadows' Avatar fic. Specifically, Sincerity, Life in Ba Sing Se, and I'm Your Country.
The official END of the drabble contest is TOMORROW, April 25th, but in the interest of full disclosure, as long as we get fics in prior to recording the next episode, we'll totes consider them. So, last chances, people!
And a reminder of the specifications of the contest:
What You Should Do: Write a short fic of a Mai/Zuko-ish bent that is no fewer than 100 and no more than 300 words and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What You Should Not Do: Write a short fic that contains porn and send it to email@example.com. Well, actually...you SHOULD do that all you like. We just can't use it for this contest! Sry.
What We Will Do: Select Fishies will perform a dramatic reading of the winning fic (and possibly excerpts from honorable mentions if there are enough entries) on an upcoming episode of Sick Fish. So basically you get to listen to us embarass ourselves in front of the internet. WITH YOUR WORDS. We will also shower it in praise and note your awesomeness all over the comm FOR ALL TIME.
