It's time to vote on the April Writing Contest: "Imprisoned"

This time we got 6 entries - thanks to all who participated.

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your TWO favourite 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.

The key for the numbers of votes is this: 1-5 entries: 1 vote, 6-10 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 (I'm still hopeful of getting the access to do this...)

Good luck to all our entrants and thank you for taking the time to read the stories and vote! :)

Voted for 2.
And I have an honorable mention for a piece that was very well written, but just not quite a story.

Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

4 days left, we only have 5 votes!
And one person either thought they only had one vote, or decided to choose just one...

Great stories all, come read and vote!

What glorious news!

I gave my vote to LisaElle, but it could have gone a lot of different ways.
