It's time to vote on the February Writing Contest: "Gender Reversal"

This time we got 4 entries - I'll still say 'wahey', as it was a difficult/annoying theme for all and close to the end I thought we'd only get one story - thanks to all who participated.

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your favourite entry 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! :)

Voted!

Come on, there's only 4 stories and only 2 other people voted so far? 5 days left, people, you'll read them in a day.

Very different takes on the theme, anyone can win :)

People didn't like the theme so they're not voting either, I guess :-\

First and second place are tied. So your vote will definitely make a difference!

One hour to go and *everyone* is tied :o

So if you're the one who votes now and breaks the tie, don't say anything (unless you don't mind showing your vote, hehe)

Oh well, is this a first or what??

Congratulations, ALL ;D

When I voted, I wrote "Very different takes on the theme, anyone can win", and actually everyone won hehe

Shock 4-way tie!  ;D

Nice to say I'm part of this 'first' (if it is!), so thanks to those who voted for Snow  :)

I enjoyed all the stories, but @Rukaio_Alter got my vote for making me chuckle a few times. Funny story  :D

Looks like we need a run-off. ;D Congrats all! I'm not sure how I feel about this 4-way-tie...

In a way, it's a nice send-off to our last fanfiction month ::)

However, I think it should be considered a "side note" in the history of our contest, not a 'proper month' like the others.

Wow.  What a strange turn up.  Well done everyone. I voted for @Rukaio_Alter.  Nothing quite like a story poking fun at midichlorians.  But then what else had we come to expect from the God-Emperor of the Writing Contest, even without the long absence?

Thanks to those who voted for mine.  I had been reading some non-fiction on Homer and Orpheus earlier in the year and it felt like a nice fit for the theme this month.  Glad people enjoyed it.
