It's time to vote on the June Writing Contest: "Two themes that don't fit together"

This time we got 4 entries - thanks to all who participated.

Please read through all of the entries in the submission thread and place your votes for your favourite entry in this thread. You won't be able to see the vote breakdown until the vote closes, so spread the word for others to come and vote! We do ask that if you entered, to vote for someone else.

The key for the numbers of votes is this: 1-5 entries: 1 vote, 5-10 entries: 2 votes, 11-15 entries: 3 votes, 16-19: 4 votes, 20-25: 5 votes, 26+: 6 votes

Remember that the winning entry will be posted on the main Fantasy-Faction site in a few months.

Good luck to all our entrants and thank you for taking the time to read the stories and vote! :)

Wow. Even with only four stories, we got 3 fabulous ones (I withhold judgement of mine).
Great stylish writing!

But, yeah. I voted.

I agree, four great stories and I have no idea how to decide for whom I should vote!
I guess it's the same for you, since only two people have voted until now? ;)

Come on, it's only 4 stories to read, and they're totally worth it :D

There are only 3 votes so far, it's the lowest we've had in a long time - you've got 3.5 days left, plenty of time!

Voted.

I have to say, the titles for these entries were a real high this month around.

Voted. Don't recall a month being as diverse as this (in terms of style of stories), despite there being only 4 entries  :)

A little late in day but voted.  Interesting choices of theme and all well-executed.  A very tough choice.

Votes aside, would appreciate comments on story and writing. PM or here in thread both are fine.

Voted. Hi all writers want you to know I always read and vote but don't always remember to say so here. It is a special end of month treat and thank you for all the stories that entertain me so well. But this month I am rather concerned about all your visions of our possible futures. Cue, @xiagan & @ScarletBea, do we need a theme of joy, happiness, laughter &  hope ?  ;D

Well, August is already set, but funny you should say that, since we had another good option for a theme, but discarded it for now because it is (or it could be) a bit grim...
We'll try finding a joyful one for September, then :D

oooooh wahey @JMack, congratulations!

I *loved* your story :D

Honestly: you need to compile your best 20-odd contest stories and publish it, I would really buy it!

Congrats, @JMack!

@Bender, I'm pretty sure that your lack of votes is only due to the fact that there was only a single vote. I enjoyed all four stories a lot.

I was between him and JMack. It was pity I got to vote once :(

Well, that’s great fun to get the votes. I chose the Goblin story, but as everyone’s Beene aging, all the stories were really good this month. @ScarletBea, I’ll need an editor...  ;)

Meanwhile, Mrs. JMack and I are going on a moose safari in a few minutes. Google: Moosehead Lake, Maine.

Condragonations @JMack, happyto give you my vote, great story but insidious rebellion against The Supreme Masters of the Universe should really be discouraged.  :P

Agreed. It was a tight call, I really enjoyed all 3. But I also voted yours. That treacherous dystopian atmosphere came through well I thought  :) Congrats.

Thanks for the vote too!
