Where there's a will was definitely my favorite story this month!
One of the best punchlines ever.

But there were so many to like.
Great month, made all the more fun by @xiagan's diabolical anonymous concept.

Congrats to whoever wrote the winning story this month! I voted for you too, but it looks like most everyone did!  ;)
Lots of runners up for 3rd and 4th place, looks like people were well divided!

Yes, funnily enough, I voted for both the 4th places (the ones with 8 votes), but none of the 3rd places (with 9 votes) - although one of these was in the running for my votes.

Hah!! I'm sad to hear that!
I also voted for a 4th place with 8 votes (weincanathun), but also for the 6th vote story Memories. Nothing else, I was a harsh critic this month.
