I forgot to vote!!!  :-[ :-[ :-[
I had such a hard time deciding which story should get my third vote that I put off voting for too long. http://www.en.kolobok.us/smiles/standart/facepalm.gif
This is horrible!  :'(

Well... Congratulations to the winners.

When you were faffing around posting about your 3rd vote, I honestly thought you'd already voted for the first two. Bad AAV!

(will you tell me, in secret, which ones you were going to vote for? if you don't want to ruin somebody's party? ;D)

Congratulations to the winners, and on your triumphal three-way!  :D

I voted for @Elfy, @ArcaneArtsVelho and he who must not be summoned, Henry Dale. @Jmack would have been my next vote, but it seems that I wasn't meant to vote on any of the winners this month.

he who must not be summoned, Henry Dale
My plans to overthrow the wizarding world will come as a shock  :)

Fittingly I also crossed a thousand posts recently and am now an auror.

Ohmygawd, I hadn't noticed! Argh I want to be red! :'(

Edit: I just asked for help on the Bugs thread and there I'm ok.
It seems to be only on this section, where I'm a Mod but can't really do Mod stuff except lock threads and modify other people's posts :(

You can send the cake to my tropical kitty island off the coast of Belgarium. There isn't need for a whole thread  :P

three-ways are amazing!  congrats you guys!  (man, i've always wanted to say that...)

personally, i feel like my votes were super-useful.  i voted for tebakutis, ra, and elfy.

nice work everyone.  especially on such a gnarly topic for only 1500 words.

Everybody was complaining when xia first posted, but then all the stories were great, for me - just a very small number under par, mainly due to the writing.
You're all romantics deep down ;) (except Henry and Elfy hehe)

I voted for Rukaio, jmack and elfy, so that's two out of the three. Rukaio's made me lol (like, literally lol in rl), jmack's squirrel library was the best (you have GOT to make a novel out of that) and elfy's freaked me out so much I nearly had nightmares.

Well done everyone and congrats to those winners!

Congrats everybody!

I wanted to break the tie but couldn't decide on which story deserved the win. ;)
