[DEC 2015] - Young Love - Voting Thread
« on: January 04, 2016, 11:54:41 AM »
It's time to vote on December's Writing Contest: Young Love

We got 13 entries this month.

Thanks to all of you for participating - we've been having quite a lot of entries this year, and even in the months where it seems there will be less, you come up with the goods at the last minute :D
It was a wonderful year for the Contest!!

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your three 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! :)
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

Read them all on the drive down from Maine the other day. (Not while I was doing the driving. I may be stupid, but...)

Voted! I read them as people posted them so I wouldn't have tons of stuff to read at once. There were two that really stood out to me. Choosing the third was a little harder.

Also voted! Again, so much quality work. Ultimately, it always comes down to subjective personal taste.

It seems this poll decidd to change out of its own accord >:(
At the moment I can't go back and select 'only show votes after the poll expires', which is what I created in the first place!

Pesky AIs. (The self-determination programming inserted by Atku is showing up earlier than I expected.)
But hey, a little variety now again ain't so bad?

Yep thanks, looks like it, although I can't actually select that option - as Jmack said, 'pesky AIs'!)

m3mnoch, e-books?
It's the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears.
