It's the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears.

erm.  i don't know how much "we" it is.  i kinda just started compiling them without asking anyone's permission.  no one has seemed to mind so far.

/shrug

but, yeah, i'd love for it to be more of an official "we" thing -- that'd be sweet!

@m3mnoch thank you for the epub! I noticed with Mighty Beasts, it's a really nice way to read the stories.

Voted :)  Some difficult choices, I could easily have used more votes, but in the end happy with my top three in a strong field.

Voted as well.
Was a weird month this time. I think a lot of stories didn't really fit what I'd hoped for, going for darker and sadder.
Don't throw me tomatoes, I didn't give a happy ending to my own people either.

@ScarletBea, we used to have an option to change our vote. Please could it come back?
Not because I want to change what is registered but because for some reason only 2 out of my 3 are showing. If the option is back I can go in and make sure my 3rd vote is there.

I'm pretty sure I set that option up when I created the thread, but my mod powers are waning, I can't really do anything anymore except click on 'edit poll' and see the current results (that button doesn't actually let me edit the poll anyway ::))
@xiagan, help Lady Ty?

Not very helpful, but letting you know you're not alone. I don't want to change my poll result, but if I wanted to I couldn't either.

There's a button called "remove vote" now so I'm guessing it does.

Thank you, all well and my three votes accepted. Great excuse to sit and read all afternoon. Had the similar problem to m3m, but for me five favourites and just three votes. Congratulations to all for great selection overall on what can be a hard subject to handle.
