BATTLE: The (Un)Official LitReactor Brawl

How it works:
You sign up.  Around noon-ish on November 8th, I’ll randomly pick ten people to participate (if you got an automatic in because of the last Battle, please still sign up so I know you're using it!).  Those people will write to a prompt and submit their stories anonymously (details on how to submit will be sent to participants via a message here).  Stories will be due NOVEMBER 18th at 9pm CST.  I will post a poll and everyone will have 2 weeks to read, respond to, and critique the ten stories.  The winner is the one with the most votes.

RULES:

You can’t reveal if you are selected to write.
You can’t reveal if you are NOT selected to write.  Anyone who does this will be eliminated from this and all future Battles.
You must read every story
You must make a comment about every story (at least one pro and one con)
You must vote
You CAN’T vote for your own story
Failure to do any of these things means you lose.  I will remove your story and any votes it received will go to me.  If I collect enough points I get a pony.
You MUST have a LitReactor membership to participate.  You will only need it for one month, long enough to read the stories and vote.  So this contest will cost $9.
Do NOT sign up if you can't commit to these guidelines!!
In order to sign up, leave a comment here with your favorite dinner.  That's it, just tell me your favorite cartoon and I'll add your name to the list.

Since I'm not sure which you really want:

I'm in. I believe I got an auto-in from last time, but hey, whatever works! New favorite dinner is vegan meatloaf sandwiches I made the other night that were fucking amazing. Favorite cartoon is still probably Invader Zim, with Courage the Cowardly Dog coming in a very close second. I also sort of miss Jonny Bravo for reasons I honestly couldn't delineate in any coherent fashion.

I'm in! Regular Show--but don't tell my daughter. I'm always telling her to shut it off. The fat dude with the man-boobs is the best--I totally grew up with that guy in HS and let me tell you he didn't turn out well. He'd be so lucky to live in a trailer and work for the parks department.

Count me in!

My favorite cartoon is Adventure Time. 

Reading comments below--my love for Archer moves me to edit and change my vote. Though, AT is awesome. 

And, yes, my priorities are often questionable.

Does Howl's Moving Castle count? Not a series, but animated... I usually have to watch whatever the Manimal is watching.
