@Jmack : I'm one of the two proud 6 submissions people, working on the 7th. Never saw that one coming.

Also, any specific reason you guys are all withholding the names of your most voted for authors? It's all a question of taste and all no? And don't we often admit in the critic or voting thread who we voted for anyway?

As far as I'm concerned it goes like this :

Contest voted in : 6 - from March Rogue, up to Space Opera.
Stories voted for : 27
Authors voted for : 13 - if not mistaken.

Multiple vote for a particular author :
@Raptori /Saurus : 4

@Jmack : 3
@Elfy : 3
@D_Bates : 3
@ArcaneArtsVelho : 3

Rukaio Alter : 2
Eli Freysson : 2

My stand alones : OnlyOneHighlander, Carter and donalddallan in Flash Fiction, RussetDivinity and SJ Budds in Multiple povs and Wakarimasen in Rogues.
One more in Space Opera but won't say that one  :P

It's a shame I can't keep track of the stories I likes though (totally not making any form of smart pro like comment here I sweaaaar) because while it represents my taste in voting, I've often battled to fit the number of votes and could totally have voted for different stories on the style alone. I'm often a bit off topic, and so are some really good writers.

But overall I'm actually not this surprised, I've always really liked Raptori and Saurus' work, even on months when they had few votes.  :P

I've just been too slack to sit down and do the counting, but will do so soon as I am interested to see the results. I am always pleased if I have actually hit on the winner, because that validates my own choice. Never bothered if I don't  because there are always so many different reasons to choose what you like best.

Well, I don't want it to go to his head, but my 5 out of 6 author is... wait for it... it's coming... @RukaioAlter.

A thing that may distort these 'best of' could be the length of time we've been voting for, and many people submitting now not existing 6 months or more ago :-\

I can share my top 3 when I get home.

I don't want to say which of these I voted the most for, but let's just say that I'm rarely disappointed by what @Elfy, @TOMunro, @Jmack and @Carter write  :)

Rogerian therapist!  ;D Awesome.

One element of Carl Roger's approach is "Reflective Listening." The therapist reflects back to the therapee what he/she said, usually in a slightly different way.

This in spoilers because it contains a joke including depression and suicide that not everyone may want to read. And having written it out, it's not that good a joke anyway.

Spoiler for Hiden:
So the joke goes:

A client comes into Dr. Rogers's office, and shows signs of great anxiety.
Rogers: You look like you may be feeling stressed.
Client: Yes. I'm feeling very depressed.
Rogers: It sounds as though you're unhappy.
Client: Exactly! In fact, I'm afraid I'm feeling suicidal.
Rogers: It sounds as though you're thinking of ending your life.
Client: (walking across room to window) Your window is open.
Rogers: It seems to me that you are saying the window has been raised.
Client: It's a long way down.
Rogers: I think you're communicating that we are quite high up from the street.
Client: I'm going to jump.
Rogers: You're saying you might want to jump.
Client: (jumps out of window)
Rogers: (walks to window and looks down to the ground) Splat.


Well, it was funny in college.  :P

Just chatted with Eliza, and it was the most infuriating conversation I have ever had.  >:(

Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

One of these semesters when I don't have math I'll try this out. Until then, statistics will stay in the class for me.

in that case, is it "maths are" or "maths is"?
