Please only vote if you plan to participate in the contest. Otherwise we may get a result nobody who participates is happy with.

The poll runs for two days and if the decision for a new topic is made, I'll post it on the 2nd or 3rd of October.

I had huge holidays in September, but that included days of travel, lots of hard work for a visa application, indulging family members etc. Just got back to work and finally shed all the stress I had up to here. I have an idea and I've started writing it. Whether I'll actually make it is another issue, but I'm gonna keep this short.

Hmm that was close, but keeping School for another month won.
I hope that the 2 who voted for another theme can still participate, trying another take on "school" - as I said in the Discussion thread:
Who says it needs to be "magic" schools?
As long as it's a school, and it's in a SFF setting, it's acceptable :D
