CONTEST WINNERS! And silly videos.

Howdy from New Orleans!

It took an extra day, but we managed to record, edit, and now post the very first ever Merry Fates Vlog. (With a whole bunch of help from nataliesee who has way more patience and mad skilz when it comes to uploading, cutting, and editing than any of us.)

Without further ado, here are the winners of the New Orleans Contest Extravaganza!!!

Congrats to all the winners! We loved seeing all of your entries and appreciate that you helped us get the word out about our stories.

Please email me at tessa dot gratton at gmail dot com with your name and address, and as soon as we’re all back at home we’ll mail out the prizes.

As a quick additional treat, here’s our outtakes video. πŸ˜€

  1. BAH! No sound at work, and for whatever reason when I try to play the video in an attempt to lip-read, it doesn’t work.


    (Please tell me there’s more outtakes! Please. And more kitty-cat!) πŸ™‚

  3. I fed her cheese and named her Romeo because of her bad ass balcony climbing skills. πŸ˜€

  4. We have about an hour of them, I believe. PERHAPS at some point they will make an appearance.

  5. Yes! She was amazing. We were all like “omg Romeo are we going to have to call the fire department?!” But she just ran back down it the exact same way.

  6. YES! It ran straight down the ladder as easily as it ran up! It really was a very surprising cat.

  7. OMG I totally forgot to enter this – in fact, the window is still open on my laptop! Oh well, congratulations to all the winners!! You guys look like you’re having tons of fun and I would love to be there with you. I desperately want to see a New Orleans cemetery!

    The VLOG was fabulous and I think you should do all your Merry Sisters of fate posts (that don’t involve a short story) like this from now on πŸ™‚ Very funny, I love you guys πŸ™‚

    Was that a tree house you guys were in? That is really cool, have always wanted to go up in a tree house πŸ™‚

  8. Ya’ll are going to have to back Maggie off the benignets… I think she’s drunk with them! *chuckles*

    Looks like you’re having fun!

  9. OMG! When I heard Maggie say vamp…I knew it was me! lol I just knew it! xD I had a good laugh too! No that’s not my given name…my given name is Michelle…mommy does love me xD!

  10. Great fun! Loved the cat and the tree house. Not a single one where I live. Guess the trees are too thin.

  11. This is so exciting mostly because it’s interesting to note little personality details of the people whose work you truly admire. Very cool!

  12. Wow, that cat has mad ladder climbing skillz! My cats just sniffed and looked away in disdain when I tried to show them said skills to which they could aspire.

    Congrats to the winners!

  13. lol oh well!

    We can’t do our RTs like this because we live hundreds of miles away from each other, ALAS.

    But yes, giant tree house. It is amazing and taller than the house, but the ladder is rickety and not bolted down and sort of death-defying!

  14. I haven’t seen a tree house like this very often in my life. It’s about the size of my first grad school apartment… πŸ˜‰

  15. LOL. One of our cats used to climb up ladders backwards like a monkey. But not anymore. He grew up and got boring.

  16. I won! The Grand Prize no less! How does that happen? Well I guess my luck in another part of my life is going to run out for a bit isn’t it?

    Thanks guys for having the contest and for picking out such an awesome mask!

  17. Wow, you guys are SO AWESOME!!!

    Oh, and congo to the winners πŸ˜€

    And the cat’s SO sweet… πŸ˜€
