And so as one SSC comes to an end, another rises to take its place. Such is the order of the world, the continuing cycle of life. But despite this order everything within the cosmos is not without chaos and disorder. All good things come to an end, nightmares fade into memory, and light beams at the end of our darkest tunnels.

To this end, the topic for SSC5 is:

The final few.

What few, and how final, I leave to your limitless imaginations.

Closing Date: 18th December

Minimum wordcount: 500
Maximum wordcount: 2,500

Hint: I detest poetry. A 500 word limerick or a 30 verse haiku will not win you any prizes here.

Good luck, and I look forward to reading your stories.

Thanks. Don't worry about any reference to Take That - I couldn't even name a single by them let alone an album.

I have to say that I'm really pleased with the general quality of offerings for this (I sound like a bloody school teacher). There was a great diversity in the writing as well.

It's very tough to choose a winner, because each story has its own defenite merits.

However, there can be only one winner. Because of the simplicity of the story, and the fact that it is not only realistic, but easy to identify with, the winner is:


Of course, this decision is made on the condition that the next SSC has nothing to do with Take That albums, and ownership thereof.
