Here is the last Clarion Write-a-Thon blog post, which explains who "won" what and why. I came in third (in terms of amount of money raised). The top 12 participants, apart from the ultimate frontrunner, willeventually each receive a 33%-off coupon for a signed first edition; I also got a T-shirt in the mail a few weeks ago. The blog post reveals who won the various draws, including our own Cuong Hoang. Feel free to participate in the survey linked from the blog post; it is there for writers, donors, and "interested observers."

|Panel 1: In
the psychological institute, Marie is at a table, eating. The young man
who passed her in the hall in the last strip approaches, smiling.|
Man: So did you get your stupid brain to behave?
Panel 2: He sits down beside her.
Man: I overheard you in the hall.
Marie: Ah. No. My brain is still outside my control.
Panel 3: He holds out a hand.
Man: I'm Basil. I'm here mostly because of the overwhelming despair, which I conceal beneath a facade of ironic detachment.
Panel 4: She shakes his hand.
Marie: I'm Marie. I talk to imaginary people and go on vision quests with alternate versions of myself.
Basil: Damn...you win.
