Writer Wars Winner: "The Swirly Man" by TheDoctor212!

This week's Sparklers' Choice Award winner was TheDoctor212, who wrote the fantastic story featured above based on last week's Writer Wars prompt. It's a tale of abuse, loss, and the dreadful weight of eternity—all with perhaps one solution: the Swirly Man. Read the following slides, and prepare yourself for some heavy emotions—most notably, sadness. It's a somber tale, but dang it, sometimes that's just how the best stories are. After wiping your eyes of their sadness, head over to this week's Writer Wars and contribute your own story!
