Okay, on the fourth contest, you guys OUTDID YOURSELVES. This was very tough to call! There were great arguments for everybody from Roger and Mimi from “Rent” to Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala from “Star Wars” to Monica and Chandler from “Friends.” You guys love Edward and Bella, Remy & Dexter, Jace and Clary, Anne and Gilbert, Ennis and Jack, Hermione and Snape (in fanfic, all things are possible), Janie and Cabel, Constantine and Rae, not one but two couples named Tony and Maria (whether from “Chasing Windmills” or “West Side Story”) and even the originals, Romeo and Juliet.
But ultimately I had to pick a winner, so I went with Patricia, who nominated Alice and Paul from The Last Summer of You and Me by Ann Brashares. I haven’t read this book yet, but after I saw Patricia’s entry, I knew I would have to! And if that’s not a great entry, I don’t know what is. Patricia, I’ll e-mail you about sending off your prizes (the AMAZING Stealing Heaven, plus Evernight and the gift certificate. Everyone else, thanks for creating some amazing entries.
In fact, the entries were so great that I decided this week I’d have to give away multiple prizes ….
As you guys probably know by now, Evernight takes place at a boarding school, Evernight Academy, which is a very unusual place (to say the least). So this week’s contest is in the school’s honor.
The rules: I want you to Tell me your favorite school in fiction. You can pull from movies, books, TV or anything else. Is it Hogwarts? Neptune High? The Constance Billard School for Girls? Tell me why! This can be either the school you’d love to go to or the one you’re most glad you don’t attend. And yes, it’s fine to say “the school where they all get locked up in The Breakfast Club” or something like that if you don’t know the exact name. You can even nominate a real school as long as you tell me why it’s the perfect setting for that book, TV show, etc. that you love so much.
The prizes: The best entry wins a $100 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble. Everybody else who enters will be put into a drawing, and four winners from that group will each receive a $25 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble. So you have two ways to win.
Ready, set, go!
(Finally, has anybody out there heard from hersheekiss358? She was one of two winners last week, but hasn’t checked in with an address for me to mail her prize. If you’re out there, drop me a line!)
