    Look at where we are. Look at where we started. The fact that we’re alive is a miracle…especially after finals, amiright?

    Here we are at the end of another school year and its last issue of The Cracked Pot. Another year has flown by, and now we dive headfirst into summer with hopeful expectations of sandy hair, wrinkled fingers, and eyes full of constant sunshine…or at least a brief respite from school.

    But before we run off to live underwater with Ariel for three months,

    Hi guys! Lindsey here. Around the time of the One-Star Blogger, I really started thinking about how hard the mods work to make sure that our forums are safe and healthy and fun. They do an incredible amount of work on here and go through a lot, and they really aren't appreciated nearly enough for what they do. So I came up with Moderator Appreciation Day.

    Hi there, world ofTPSer's! As you know, our 2016 TPS Photography Contest has been in the works since January 1st of this year, and today, for the last issue of TCP for the2015-1016 School Year, we are pleased to announce the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers of the photography contest. With over 150 photos submitted, the competition this year was extremely tough--much bigger than anything we've had before!

    Before announcing the winners, however, we'd like to give one last big thanks

    Congratulations to all of our winners, and thank you to everyone who submitted entries for this year's competition! Since all of our entries were on the first prompt, we'll be posting the top four instead of the top two for both pictures.


    Without further ado, our first place winner, by a margin of a single point, is... *cue drumroll*

    As I mentioned earlier, the difference between first and second was a single point! Both stories are wonderful (but then again, I think all of the ones we received are!)

    Following right behind Mr. Tan is.... *another drumroll please*

    The Runaway by Rachel Lim



    “On exam nights I dream about hijacking a motorcycle and running away to Malaysia,” she confesses, her ponytail pulling her hair tight against her skull. She looks up from her textbook to

    Parlay of Hope by Molly Weber



    He was a miner. She was basically a princess. Unlike most boys caught in such a predicament, however, Jaxon honestly didn’t care, which explains why he was so surprised to find himself sitting on opposite sides of the Parlay Line from her.
    Of course he knew that every year one young person each was chosen from the

    And finally, last but certainly not least, our fourth place winner is... *final drumroll*

    The Tracks by Kaitlyn Hohmeier



    The train station had been abandoned long ago, and no trains ever passed on the tracks anymore. Mostly now people would just pass on by the old station and the tracks and remark, “Someday they’ll do something about that. Maybe they’ll bring the train through again.” For Mindy and Drew, it was a place to talk. They always met at ...
