Out of curiosity, are you able to see who voted and who didn't?

It has been a busy month for me with the book release, working on my space station, and the Mass Effect, but I will absolutely vote in the next few days (before the deadline!)

woot!  congrats @Lanko!  you won!

tho.  i'm sad to say, i didn't vote for you.  boo . . .  this was a weird voting month.

i did, however, vote for @Jmack and @Rukaio_Alter!


edit:  i just realized i didn't even vote for the second-place finisher.  (congrats @Alex Hormann!!)  i'm really bad at evaluating fanfic.  probably because i never read it.  *shrug*
