Many different interpretations of the theme, some similar, others way out, all very enjoyable reading and clever with glorious imagination. You all give me a special day once a month when I let myself just read the contest, sometimes twice over, and snack and be lazy. Thank you, just wish votes weren't limited .

Finally just voted for three that made a very strong impression, but each for quite different reasons.

This, but I spread my reading. I feel it can affect my view of the story, if I'm reading story number 5 or 6 in a row, on the same subject.

At the moment there are 3 missing (I don't read in order, by the way ;) ).
I think I've got 2 that I'm definitely going to vote for, and then a couple of contenders for the 3rd vote... let's see if the missing ones will add to this hehe

Well, one of the missing stories came up and knocked the contenders out. It was awful/creepy (@SugoiMe, I wonder if it's the same that got you scared...)

FYI
There's one story at the top, and then 2 tied a little away...

And another side comment: I strongly suggest to @Rukaio_Alter to get all your funny stories together and publish them. Call it 'funny fantasy' ;)

Probably. Sometimes, the best stories are the ones that get the biggest reaction from you, whether positive or negative.

Hi there contestants have you voted as well as entered?

Bumping this to remind you, only open another day.

How many have voted so far @ScarletBea?  If every writer votes, and you can usually rely on three of us who are regular readers you should have at least seventeen.

Guilty! I have not voted. I do, however, plan to vote tomorrow. :)

I can't see, I'm just a minor mod (I can only see the results because I created the poll). You need to ask the big boss mod, @xiagan himself ;)

There are 39 votes, which would mean 13 voters, but I know some haven't used all of theirs, so there might actually be more.

I've just had  nightmare's in a row.

First one I dreamt a tooth fall out of my mouth then another one fall out one by one until I had no teeth left.horrible dream

Second one I dreamt that no one was talking to me and felt very lonely.

Third one not really a nightmare just bizarre dreamt that I was driving an electric go-kart on the motorway to Blackpool.

That first one is worthy of a ghastly story here, it would have been awful,  but the last one sounds crazy fun.

And you know you'll never be short of conversation if you hang around here. ;D

I hate teeth falling out dreams.  When I get them my whole tooth doesn't fall out they just crumble and I'm having to spit out little pieces of tooth throughout the dream.
