It's time to vote on the August Writing Contest: "Break the Rules - Weather"

This time we got 8 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, 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! :)

Congratulations @Jonathan Ryan
Not a bad story in the batch, but my vote went to @idledragon27

Pretty close at the top there, and thanks to anyone who voted for little old me. :)

Congrats, Jonathan!

I didn't have enough internet on the train to read all the stories yesterday, so I wasn't able to vote, but I will read the rest of the stories now. :)
