I think everyone did even if not always in the conventional sense. ;)
Oh definitely! I wrote "as I view it" because I think *I* don't quite get it, or maybe don't like it much. So I feel this will be quite a difficult one to vote for because each person has got their own ideas.
Just like Xia pointed out that there is no clear winner at this point in time, each person has its own ideas of what 'works' :)

Well, at least I was the last to submit, so maybe this is not a full-blown end of the world.  :P

I loved this theme, had so much fun writing my entry and loads more reading all the other entries. I think it's great that everyone's entries are so different. Was very hard to choose my votes  :)

Running a bit behind this month.
Voted!

I'm surprised at...
Spoiler for Hiden:
the sheer number of stories in which the characters argue with the writer.
No, you're not.
Yes, I really am.
No, you expected this.
I did not. And who are you anyway?

A bump up because time is running out and it's short month February. Wouldn't it be a shame if anyone FORGOT to vote ?  ::)

Voted!

And it's looking to be another super exciting month vote-wise: one story in the lead, and then 1 point behind there are FIVE stories, and 1 point behind them, THREE stories :D

Nope - I lost my mod powers in some system update :( (at least some of them - aparently I can still modify all posts in these sections hehe)
I can only see the votes because I created the thread.
No one can fix it... I'm no longer superwoman ::)
