11 votes so far, most votes per story are 6,5,5 so far. :)
Thanks for the update, BUT WHICH ONES ARE THEY?!?!?  :o
Ask Bea, she knows. ;)
@ScarletBea send me updates via PM please. Nobody else has to know.  8)
Nice try 8)
I'm unbribable ;D

Oh wait! You didn't even bribe me!!! >:(

Xia, you're welcome - I like doing this :D
Hmm. Bribes.



Would have to be something you can't get from Engand...

Aha!

How about these:



They're solid mint chocolate sweets. If you suck on one for a minute or so, the hard, minty outer shell softens, and the chocolatey centre melts into your mouth. They're absolutely gorgeous. They also happen to be vegan.

I could send some - a couple of bags? - in return for inside information. Remeber, nobody else has to know, we can keep it all hush-hush.




In all seriousness, if we ever come to GG or the potential F-FCon, we'll bring some of those and spread the awesomeness.  :P

What are you claiming is fake about it?  ???

Finnish chocolates are fairly similar to Belgian really. Maybe not quite the same quality (though to be honest some of the Fazer chocolates are up there with luxury Belgian ones that I've had), but it's not like they're anything like that crap that Americans use to sully the word!

No, no. Fight. But take it outside!
(Psst, Raptori, I attack from their rear when they are focused on you. For Finnish chocolate!)  ;D
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Yeah, we'll settle this the right way.

Hmm... I'm guessing that means it's someone out of Henry Dale, tebauktis, RussetDivinity, m3mnoch, SJBudd, Doctor_Chill, Eli Freysson, Jmack, Themeaningnotthename, Idlewilder, Rukaio_Alter, wakarimasen, Raptori & Saurus, ClintACK, Nora, D_Bates, Elfy, The Meddler, NightWrite, and ArcaneArtsVelho. I think anyway. My investigative skills might be a little rusty.

I can tell you that you all know who the writers of the top voted stories are :P

Can we?   ???

Last month the top four vote-getters made my top six.

In a previous month, only one of the top vote-getters made my list.

Now I want to set up a separate thread where people can vote not for which ones were their favorites but which ones do they think will win...
