Damn you Gem Cutter-- I was sure you wrote the long poem!!!!!
Yes, and of course, I did not hit the like button on that one, so that it would appear that I was being modest and not liking my own work. Dance puppets! Daaaaance!

And you also didn't like The Grinning Man  ::)

I guess I should have hired a Watson. Or maybe it was xiagan who was Xiatson but he was working against me. What can a Sherlanko do in such a case?

Maybe I should've picked 007 as my inspiration. Things may have gotten too modern for Sherlock.



Slow and steady wins the race.

Well... at least I got Tebakutis right!!!!

I basically sucked at guessing.  I'm dying to know who the one person who guessed mine correctly was :)

When I looked at the guesses (after making my own) I want to say 5 out 6 had me pegged. It seems I have a style! :0

Honestly it would have been harder to peg you if you hadn't been the only space sci-fi, but you do have a strong voice. Not sure if you were identified out of your prose or if people thought "spaceship! Tebakutis.' :P

My deceptions included not liking a poem and a story, and liking my own, although I normally like every entry to every contest except my own, of course. I thought I'd go all action for a change, and since I've never posted anything in prose for a contest or any real action scenes for my WIP for critiques, that would also throw Lanko and the other investigators off the trail. I knew 1st person would make me stand out, but I like it.
ETA: I think I did not hit the like button on two poems and two stories, none of which were mine.
I am surprised how many people attached me to other stories, but I guess everyone was.

I chose Bradley for your story, because it reminded me of one he wrote for an anthology also set in a service station, but quite quite different.

Awwwwe @Lady_Ty I just remembered how sweet you were for reading my story aaaall the way at the end of that anthology!!!!  The real give-away for my stories is that a strangely large proportion of them tend to take place in a toilet-- so if you ever see an anonymous toilet story in the future, chances are....
