This Amber x Mike piece by pixelspasms was almost third place!  Seriously, it was so very close.  Part of what I loved was the title and/or caption she included: “That was my plan. To make you game-over.”  Without that, it’s just a very well-rendered drawing of Mike kissing Amber.  But with it, there’s a whole Evil Scheme involved, with possible secondary romantic objectives???  I love this thing.

But it didn’t have Danny in a dress, so it fell just short of placing.  Damn.

To round out today’s Amber x Mike theme, here’s an entry from Steven Brown.  Bonus points for sweet Mike abs.  Points detracted for putting Amber in a Shortpacked! uniform!  This is a Dumbing of Age contest, man!  But seriously, this is hot.
