Voted!  :)

I was here thinking I should read these stories to get motivation for taking part in the contest again. But now I've seen how awesome the writing has been getting around these parts, and I feel like I'll get rolled over  ;D

Nah, like I say to the newbies (;) ), different people like different things.

And thanks for reminding me, I need to start reading! I'm well enough now hehe

Voted and with thirteen stories that took a while to read, so bumping to remind everyone to start reading soon and voting.

I've got 2 left to read, and I think most of the ones I won't be able to vote for are tied in second place! Such a great month :D

Edit: argh, I've got 4 on the top spot... how to choose... again??
Oh well - this time, I out of the 'lower 2' I chose the comic one, I need that at the moment.

Ten voters so far. Sooo if you wrote a story and haven't voted yet, now would be a good time. ;)

But there's plenty of time left.  8)

Also, voted.  ;)
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

We could set up a poll.
Which form of bribery would be effective to sway @m3mnoch's vote?
> useless store credits
> sexual favors
> proofreading/beta promise
> refraining from informing Gawker of his habit of videotaping himself in his pajamas
