Hi @m3mnoch, could you please redo your "books"?

I've just slightly changed Gem's entry as requested.

Well in that case could you correct a type in mine as well? XD

Spoiler for Hiden:
When she get [gets!!] to the pool, Arji seizes the cord knotted on her chest and in one smooth motion, all the colourful layers of fine fabric cascade to her feet, leaving her naked but for a thin white loincloth.

I didn't ask because I thought unless massive errors occur, it wouldn't be allowed. But better try and ask for it  :P

@m3mnoch, um, can you check the italics in my entry? The first line of any stanza is italicizes, but the next following lines are not. Sorry.  :-[

We love the books, though! Totally love them!  :)

Whoa... haven't even started... And haven't come close to finishing my monthly story. I feel like I'm drowning this month.

Voted! Like many others, that was a tough decision. I ended up going with the three stories that, for me, had the most enjoyable twist - however, I truly enjoyed them all. This was a great theme and it was awesome to see some new folks participating!
