Jmack for the double! And now he's the sole Lord Ruler!

My own votes went to @Elfy, @D_Bates, @Rukaio_Alter and @shadowkat678 .

I usually don't vote for comedy but the first three really made me laugh and the last one was Arthurian legend in urban setting without Arthur  :o

Wow. You voted for me? I'm flattered. Even though it was another rushed one because the idea was bigger than the space... XD

oh!  i realized i didn't say who all i voted for!

@Jmack -- a witch?  in a skyscraper?  with a nine-lives twist?!?  of course i voted for that!

@tebakutis -- loved the non-standard earthy-as-urban fantasy lore.

@Rukaio_Alter -- my favorite story in the group.  both email chain letters and coffee shops have a near-and-dear spot in my heart.

@ArcaneArtsVelho -- a hard-boiled detective making out with devil chicks?  SIGN ME UP!

Congrats @Jmack! I loved the setting and how it impacted the story.

I also voted for:

@m3mnoch - I liked the twist at the end

@DevinBM - I was impressed by the strength of the MC's personality

@Rukaio_Alter - I've definitely never read anything that funny about coffee shops and chain letters

Also, thanks to @Lady_Ty , @tebakutis , and @Elfy for the votes! I haven't read much urban fantasy, so I just took the city I know best and added a fantastical creature. Maybe that's why what I wrote ended up on the lighter side.
