Wow, @D_Bates, I wish I could give you 17 likes, one for each of us.
That you took this time to give us each positive feedback. Just, wow.
Thank you.

@D_Bates Woohoo! Thanks so much for the short reviews! It's great indeed to get feedback. I agree with you mostly on most stories too. Though I'd say you seem to see stuff coming way faster than I ever do!

@D_Bates  thankyou so much for taking the time to write  - and at such length with such a long field.  Feedback is always precious - more so than votes - so thanks again.

@D_Bates Thank you! Really nice of you to offer all of us such positive, even encouraging feedback. You made at least my day feel a little brighter! :)
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.

Well, it took awhile to read all the stories but I finally managed and cast my votes.  Good luck to all.  And thanks for the feedback!  Always welcomed, and more helpful than a vote  :).  Feedback is rare indeed.

Finally read them all and voted, too :)
Well done to all, but I have to admit I had a bit more trouble finding 4 that I expected (more to do with my style than your writing!)

Wow, 2 more days and the votes will be out.  :o
Being all new to this, it's exciting. I guess I'll have to wait a bit more than two days too, being in Australia and all...  ;D
I'm impatient, it'll be fun, especially once the critic thread comes out.

Not quite, it says under the poll: Voting closes: 02 May 2015, 23:23:14

So it'll be a couple of days after the end of the month. I still need to read them all and vote...  :-[
I wish the world was flat like the old days, then I could travel just by folding a map.

Noooo Damn it I was all excited!! xD
It's ok, I'm sure the coming out of the new month topic will keep me entertained.  :-X

@xiagan, do you have time to post the new topic before the vote closes on the old?

It's like receiving a free Anthology every month, thank you everyone and good luck. ;D It is always hard to decide with so many, I enjoyed them all and glad we could choose four.  Interested to see results. .
I imagine arguments being swallowed back, wine spit in glasses and gurgling up bottles. I imagine my ring sliding off my finger, Bobby's lips hot on mine for the first time again, and then unknown to me.

I think usually they both happen at around the same time, since it takes a fair bit of work on @xiagan's behalf. Not entirely sure though...  :P
