I voted for two, so far.
I’m really torn between two others, so i’ll Need to come back and make a decision.
Really interesting takes on Air this month.  :D

Voted!
I also had 2 clear choices and then the 3rd vote was between 2 stories, just on a whim.

At the moment one story's in front, but there are a couple more just behind, so your vote can still make a difference :)

Voted. This seemed a more difficult subject to get to grips with this time. One was easy winner for me, but then five more so close, had to make hard choices for last two votes.

Congratulations @J.R. Darewood!!!

I really loved your story, and I also loved @OnlyOneHighlander's - hey, I want to read a full book with the adventures of this group and their flying ship!!
My 3rd vote went to @Alex Hormann, who just gained over @JMack because the ending was less confusing :)
