#3

But I want to win, but I also don’t want to vote for myself and look selfish?

What do I do?


#4
you vote for someone else

then change your vote to yourself on the last day


#5

I am honestly stuck between @oranos and @scrublordscrub’s submission. That twist at the end of scrublord’s story was great.


#6

Prompt’s been added to OP


#7

I really, really love many of these submissions, but my vote has to go to @oranos.
The use of the dueling narrative, standing in as a metaphor for the fights themselves, was super cool.

A great job by all entrants!


#8

Thank you :smiley:

I really enjoyed the world that you evoked in your story.
It was reminiscent of a 1950’s international newscast; it teased enthusiasm and something exotic just beyond the reader’s reach.

It was very tough to cast a vote in this competition. It’s easy to see the passion brimming within these authors.


#9

#11

All stories were excellent reads, but I had to give my vote to @boronian. I like how the writing held such a romantic sense of adventure.


#12

#13

#14

Does the poll close automatically?


#15

Looks like its still open :thonk:


#16

If the poll had an auto-close option that would be great :sweat_smile:. Or I could just put the deadlines in some random time of the day :thonk:


#17

How does this continue now? Voting is over since some hours I guess (11th February is gone) and now the jury is coming in and deciding on a winner?


#18

Yeah since there’s a tie for 3rd.
