I meant to post announcements here the day before yesterday, but I had a family emergency. Apologies! Let's get this jam on the road, though.
If you're much like me about OCTs, when someone wins, you go back and you read that individual's round from beginning (audition), to the end- since that person's entry was just made canon to the OCT. I'll make it easy for you guys to do just that- here's some thumbs to flatw00ds
's first pages.
(Just click on the links in the descriptions to get to the next page.)
Now, why would I point that out? 'cause Snow's prize of choice was a comic by we the judges! It will continue from the end of her round, and follow the backstory she set up. It will be a comic canon to the OCT, as well- so when it's done, it'll be submitted right here, for ya'll to read!
Keep an eye out for that comic.
And another announcement after the comic's out!

The time has come, my little friends, to announce the winner of round three- and the winner of the Spook Chateau OCT. There are many things I could say, but I'm fairly certain you got the gist of it in the last journal update, so I won't make you wait any longer. Just know that I'm proud of you all, whether or not you completed your rounds in the past, or even made it into the OCT at all.
This round, the final round, was somewhat thick to judge. We, the judges, sat in our little chatroom, buzzing away at this and that, pointing things out to each other and often, echoing/agreeing with one another about certain facts. There's plenty of feedback to be had, so if either of you want to hear what all was said about your round, please note the group.
That being said, I do believe I owe you all the result!
We can not congratulate you both, and thank you both enough, for coming this far. In the round, we read and picked over Mr-Haitch
's and flatw00ds
's comic entries. While both were impressive, someone had to win, and through much discussion my fellows and I came to a conclusion, settled on a name.
Both of you are going up on the front page of this group as winners, however- you made it this far, and we're glad to have had you! Additionally, everyone's entries and reference- even if you didn't get into the OCT!- will remain in the group's Spook Chateau I gallery, for future onlookers to see and appreciate.
Stay tuned for more announcements about the future of Spook Chateau!
