One week left to vote!!

I'm still reading, and so far I've read lovely romantic stories, amazing stories that unfortunately in my opinion don't really focus on the theme, and a really 'awful' story but quite well written (sorry Henry, but that is absolutely creepy!)
Glad to continue, you guys are fab! :D

Yup, wanted to set myself apart from the young love theme. Hope you managed to sleep at night. There was a warning in my post though.

I'll write something sugary sweet next time  ;)

The offset to creepy is not sugary sweet ;)

True, they're very similar. Like certain sparkly vampires ;D

Found my 3 :D

Now there are 2 stories tied on top, then 1 story 1 point behind, then 3 stories another 1 point behind!

Edit: I forgot to say how I loved that around half the stories had same-sex or different species love :)

How many votes have we got now Bea?

As far as my own story is concerned, what I love is that I still haven't made up my mind about my character's genders. Don't know if it's guys, girls, or one of each, and then who's what. I managed to create gender-mysterious characters for myself, which is a first.  :P

Already read three of the stories. I'll try to get it done by tomorrow, and I'll happily cast my vote then  ;)

I hate the months with a 31st, since I never get results or new topics before the 2nd of Jan here, unless Xiagan posts the new topic a bit early before the votes are released.

I have a third vote problem. That is very closely related to first world problems.  :P
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.

Great - now we have a 3-way tie in first place, and about 24 hours to resolve, hehe ;D ::)

(and I can't believe that I story I gave a 4 has no votes... I'll make sure I let the writer know!)

Still can't decide which story gets my third vote (four stories are tied). Maybe I just don't use it. Hmm?  :-\

That's what I did... For once I used only two votes, because I had too many tied in third place and none that were as impressive as my first two, so... Now I'm sort of wondering what to do, since I hear there is such a crazy tie.
