Argh!
I've got four 5-star stories and I can only vote for 3, and I don't know how to choose :'(

Edit: went ahead and chose almost blindly...
Then checked the votes: there's one ahead and then 4 stories tied.

Well, I'm not going to try and subliminally persuade you one way or another. I'm just going to leave these cute little pictures of puppies here and let nature take its course...

I don't care if voting hasn't closed yet and we don't know who wrote what, but I have to say @Rukaio_Alter, yours is one I just knew I was voting for :P ;D (even without puppy pics!)
I had 2 stories for certain, and 2 others that I had to select one.

What if Rukaio actually wrote about CANNIBAL ALIENS?!?!?
