[Apr 2014] - Write about Jake/Lynn! - Voting Thread
« on: May 02, 2014, 06:55:18 PM »
It's time to vote on April's Writing Contest - Write about Jake/Lynn!

There were nine entries this time. Not as many as lat month, but hey, Grimdark. ;) Your stories and ideas never cease to amaze me, well done everybody! :)

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your two favorite entries in this thread. You won't be able to see the vote breakdown until the vote closes, so spread the word for others to come and vote! We do ask that if you entered, to vote for someone else.

This is the first time that you have two votes to give. One vote was just too hard for so many stories. I'm curious to see how it will work out with two. :)

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in June 2014.*

Good luck to all our entrants and thank you for voting! :)

*The winning entries of the last months haven't always be on time. We're working on it. ;)

Done! Voted for the ones I think were more original, despite some very little flaws that I would have changed myself - but hey, I have a glass ceiling on this subject myself  :P

Good luck to everyone!

Since Xi is on vacation/holiday, thought I'd give this a bump to remind people there's just one week left to vote! :)

Tough call, I've cast my votes.  Lots of stories deserving of votes.  Some fitting the brief like a glove, others stretching it in imaginative ways.  Very hard to choose, best of luck everybody.

Two voters (out of 13) so far only put one vote, so I wanted to remind you that you have two votes - just in case you didn't know and the one vote wasn't intentional. :)

I'm one of those who only voted once, it was on purpose.
I'm afraid this month I wasn't really captivated by the stories, sorry all :-\
(while I wish last month I could have voted for 5 or more)
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!
