@Rukaio_Alter, you do like your fanfic with Dresden, right? ;D
I read the introduction to your submission last night, and then this morning your winning story for last year, and thought "Dresden? Where did I see this recently?" :o :D

I know that @m3mnoch's still finishing his story.
Anyone else that I need to wait for?

I'm in!

And since m3m is still gonna post, that means I will not be the last story for the second month in a row. I'm really fulfilling that promise  8)

okey dokey.  i'm in!

i don't completely hate the story, but it's certainly not my favorite.  not by any means.  and it's missing the patented "m3mnoch twist" at the end.  but, i got a story in this month!  even with all this noise in the world struggling to distract me.  and that's what counts!

heh.  tho, i only read through it once.  maybe i'll just never read it again and pretend it's good.

Well done!
With only 8 entries and 2 votes, the odds of winning are better (and you made readers' jobs easier for one month, after the monster with 18 hehe) ;)

I'll do the voting thread tomorrow morning, that's the best 'end time' for all time zones.
