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 :)

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!
