It's time to vote on April's Writing Contest: Dystopian world/society.

We got 13 entries this month, most on the very last days - I knew you wouldn't let me down!
Thanks to all of you for participating!

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.

The key for the numbers of votes is this: 1-5 entries: 1 vote, 5-10 entries: 2 votes, 11-15 entries: 3 votes, 16-19: 4 votes, 20-25: 5 votes, 26+: 6 votes

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in a few months.

Good luck to all our entrants and thank you for taking the time to read the stories and vote! :)
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

hrm.  i should move all that stuff to github instead.  that way, if i win the lottery (that's how we say 'get hit by a bus' in disney always-positive-happy-rainbows corporate speak), someone else can easily take it over.

Wait, so chances of people dying of old age up there is the same as winning in the lottery?

And the books must be all written in full caps. Can you imagine that?

Actually, I think it's a great idea. I quite love this style, might write everything like this from now on!
