You only voted for one... did you only like that one?
(and yes you did - 3-way tie now hehe)

Has there ever been a tie at the end of voting before? I'd assume both/all the winners get posted.

I think it was in Dec/15 that we had 3 winners.
Slow and steady wins the race.

Ah, that feeling when my own last minute vote loses me the contest....

Still, congrats anyway DeathShroud. Wouldn't have voted for you (and Bradley) if I didn't think it was a worthy winner.

Congratulations @DeathShroud a great win in a close competition. Loved your unusual tale set in Glastonbury and how you worked your random results in so smoothly,happy to give you a vote. Also a vote for you R_A God Emperor, firstly for boldly going where none have gone before and getting your story in early. but then having to wait two whole months.  Oh yes, also for a hilariously all-inclusive extravaganza.  ;D ;D

Not so bad, gotta keep the god emperor up on his toes!

Congrats @DeathShroud hope that'll convince you to enter more contests!

Hey! Congratulations, @DeathShroud
First ever entry, first win!

Thank you to one person who liked my story well enough.

And thank you to @Rukaio_Alter and @Bradley Darewood, for two good tall tales I voted for.

Congrats @DeathShroud, that was a great story!

And talk about last minute changes in the votes :o It was very different yesterday morning!

I voted for @Rukaio_Alter and @Jmack :)
R_A, now I just want to create a new story generator with even more weird combinations and ask you to write a story with them all ;D ;D

Congrats my one vote for deathy won it for him. First time voted for ages , I voted for this story because it didn't feel like a story generator if that make sense.

I'm glad all the authors voted

Wow @DeathShroud congrats!!!!  Now that everyone mentions it, you did do such a seamless job of working the elements in that I didn't even notice they were there!

That said, I voted for @Rukaio_Alter who took the opposite approach, because I was really impressed that he was able to cram every single trope ever made into a single 1500 word story.

My very very favorite was @Carter 's tho, b/c HOLY SHIT IT WAS A CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE THATS THE COOLEST THING IVE EVER SEEN.

And talk about last minute changes in the votes :o It was very different yesterday morning!

Okay @ScarletBea now you've got us all wondering what the breakdown was yesterday morning!
