Welcome to the Literature Contest's voting thread. Most of our participants will be found in the Entry Thread. Voting rules are simple.

1. The voting period will last 2 weeks, concluding on November 3rd.
2. Simply post the name of the person you wish to vote for. Feel free to add feedback to your post(s).
3. Each person gets 1 vote. If it becomes unclear who you're voting for, feel free to PM me.
4. NO CHEATING: Things like copying a work that wasn't your own, or creating alternative accounts to boost your votes, will lead to disqualification.

Any more questions, I'll gladly answer anyone's PM.

So voting's open, yes? Thank god for the word limit, wouldn't have made it through the list without. I vote for Tuor's, mostly for being short and to the point, and containing delightfully varied, interesting language.

Well, now that Veggy broke the ice and I consider it impolite to vote for myself, I vote for Thy_Obsessive_Freak's story, mostly for being the story I held onto most fervently until the very end. It had me begging for closure.

Took a couple of days to get around to reading everything, so don't be surprised if until the last days of the voting period people are still voting. 8)

I had the pleasure of reading as they were posted :3
Still don't know who to vote for.

I like Asinerta's. It's a cute story for the theme, with a nice little happy ending. Not saying the others were bad for having less positive endings, mind you.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Tue Oct 22, 2013 4:45 pm

Are you voting for her?

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Tue Oct 22, 2013 4:47 pm

Yup. I suppose saying I liked it wasn't clear enough, sorry.

I'll readily admit I'm probably biased against the ones with happy endings.

Being the Halloween moody, happy endings tend to be seen as childish. I'm biased for them tho :3

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

I wouldn't say childish, just... Uninteresting.

I have to vote for Thy_Obsessive_Freak as well, although there are other stories that I also found very great and was hard for me to choose between them.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Mon Oct 28, 2013 4:56 pm

Sheesh, plenty of people made entries, yet almost no one's voting here. Lazy bastards...

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

There's still about a week for votes.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Mon Oct 28, 2013 6:23 pm

I agree with the Halloween discussion of "happy" Halloween stories. I got Christmas for all that mushy stuff.

And Blordy votes for Blood Lord.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Mon Oct 28, 2013 7:52 pm

Did Blood lord just vote for himself or am I misreading? :| Ah well doesn't matter, I vote for Blood Lord's as well, what with the suspense, use of words and so on.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Mon Oct 28, 2013 7:54 pm

Nope, he totally did

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Thu Oct 31, 2013 2:38 am

If Blood Lord's gonna vote for himself, then I will too haHA!
CTCFirebird votes for CTCFirebird :D

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Sooooo how do we tie break? That might well happen.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Thu Oct 31, 2013 2:05 pm

Hm...we could get the ppl that voted for others, and revote the tied entries.
We still have 3 days.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Thu Oct 31, 2013 3:07 pm

I vote for Thy_Obsessive_Freak.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Thu Oct 31, 2013 3:08 pm

Woops, I forgot >.>
I vote for Asinerta.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Sat Nov 02, 2013 8:11 pm

I'll pull a BL and vote for myself.

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

Am I the only one who thinks that's kind of a boring "Every man for themselves" way of doing it, not to mention it will either lead to a hilarious tie or a hilarious one sided victory due to everyone voting for themselves except like two guys. Reminds me of that one scene in Pirates.

Oh well. We only have like- what, a DAY? Maybe two? I think I'll keep my vote the same. I never intended to win anyway. What would I do with a gift card? lol

Re: Literature Contest Voting Thread

So what's the vote count so far? Kinda figured I wouldn't get any votes. I was kinda the only one to go for a simple rhyme.
