Why last day? It ends on the first, but tomorrow is the 31st.

I was just worried you'd shut the Music month early, because I'm not done writing my ending yet, so I need compassion!

Glad to see which writers have voted. Hope all writers vote because that is only fair. Only 10 votes w at least 2 non writers voting indicates some better hurry up. Come on Anonymouses tell us you voted as well.????

Bit late getting in, but have now voted. I'm hoping for a ten-way tie.

Yes! Especially since there are only 9 submissions, and mine barely counts.

I can count. Honestly.

Congratulations @Nora!
It seems you going all light and bright and romantic worked ;D

I have to admit not voting for you, despite enjoying your story: I voted for @m3mnoch and I was the single vote on the first Anonymous story ( :'( it was my favourite) - can you please tell me who you are (either here or on PM)?

Congratulations @Nora  happy for your gentle romance to get you a win.  ;D Loved it and gave you a vote and my other vote went to @m3mnoch's harsh tale of darkness this month.

Whoa, thank you so much guys!! That's my second victory, I'm stoked!
Wasn't sure what to expect this month, and couldn't tell if romance would sell.

I personally only voted for @LightRunner as I found his story to be the most consistent. Many others had my sights after that, but all had a flaw of some sort that made them second place material, but enough strength to just make it too hard for me to pick just the one. I'll happily explain myself in the critics thread.
