Can someone who is on the good time line please tell me how many more min/hours are left till this closes (officially)?
It's past midnight here but I'd happily stay up an hour for the result, just not 2 or 3 or more.
I think the time display is completely off for me.

Forget it. Time display indeed is a bit off, but it times my own post on whatever time zone the forum is so it kind of answers my question, I'll just go to bed.  :-[

So, go to sleep. Good night!

Congratulations, Rukaio!
Yours was the best of the bunch, but I have to say that all the rest of them were also very good. So good job, everyone! :)

And OMG! So many votes for my story!  :o :-[ ;D

Thanks to everyone who voted (not just for my story, but in general)!  :)

Wait seriously, I won?! Wow, I actually did not see that coming. I thought for sure I was out of the running here considering the strong competition.

But seriously, thanks so much to everyone who voted and entered and made this contest such a fun one. And I promise I will not let this victory go to my head...

So, I actually didn't vote for the winning story, but with all that support, I went back to see what I'd missed. Well, I really did miss that. It's a great story, really well written, with a lot of clever dialog, especially at the beginning. Congrats again!

Congratulations Rukaio a clear winner with a great story entry. ;D Those Rogues were certainly varied in their style and adventures.  Although it was hard to vote it was good to have so many entertaining stories, thank you all. :)
