Khan13  I'd like to begin by praising both contestants on not only their wonderful entries this round, but on the amazing plot lines they have given us so far. You both deserve to win, and I am proud to see either of you claim the prize in this OCT. I feel honored to have you both as fellow judges in the upcoming TBOS-OCT, and I can't wait to work with you in bringing another story to life.
RekKa  Both stories shared a relatively similar ending, involving the Minotaur as the climax, but were still wildly different in substance and execution. Both felt rushed in places, either for sake of brevity, the tenseness of the scene, or lack of time to finish... I can't tell. Regardless, both were excellent and enjoyable reads.
RobinRone  I was blown away by the quality stories that these two finalists created.  As cheesy as it sounds, both are winners already in my mind.  :)

Edmund by :thebuggiest: vs Imogen by :uvnote:
Cheeko:  Ed's entry relies on storytelling devices and events that have already seemed to occur several times throughout the tournament thus far. The ending was really fantastic: the idea of the ferryman and the presence of Charon really appealed to me, but again, I don't feel the presence of any build to a climax.  
Khan:  What a ride. Once again, you have shown a willingness to take a huge risk with the setting, and again it's paid off. I had wondered who would first figure out how death works in the Labyrinth with Hades bound, and this was a very clever interpretation. I also found the impromptu funeral to be very raw and touching. It seemed a very honest moment to me.
That said, I felt that Io could have been characterized a bit better, but that seemed to have been sacrificed for the sake of the drama in the Resistance meeting. I'm not sure I buy Phaex's paranoia shifting so s

1. Imogen by :iconuvnote: Carver by :iconGrimNecropolis:
Cheeko  Io's entry is, as usual, wonderfully written: whimsical, mysterious, dark and light all at the same time. I absolutely LOVE the allusion and use of Hera and Zeus, and part of me really, really wanted to see her continue just to see where that particular story element was going to go. Seriously, how excellent was that? There are so many great things you could do with it, and Io is doing it all right. But I agree with the other judges; I would have liked to have seen this kind of development applied to Io. After all, the whole story is about her.
Khan  This round sucked me right in and wouldn't let me go. Your portrayal of Catreus and Boa in particular have me wanting more. However, your portrayal of Imogen and Carver, who the round is ostensibly about, were the weakest and least interesting. If you continue in this OCT, you have a very tough challenge ahead of yo

excuse me, but I couldn't watch the tournament, why is that?

Hmmm...I'm not sure. This tournament finished last April, so perhaps the moderator has closed the group to watchers?

If we're going to be voting on all the Specator Entries for our favourites could we have a list of them all again? Tht way people can reread and check out ones they might have missed?
ProjectMinotaurOCT Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
Sure. I'll go back through the entry posts and make a list.
