May I be the first to say: wow! Awesome stories, guys :)
Sound, your story turned out awesome. I'm wincing at the couple of typos I didn't see in mine. Oh well, that's what I get for doing some last-minute editing without a second pair of eyes.
We got some heavy-weight brawling here. Great jobs!
Excellent reading, gents! Thanks very much!
Really tough choice. Both stories are so good.
Really not much in this one, and both great interpretations of the prompt. It was genuinely tough to pick a winner.
Read and voted
Come on, people. Two great short stories, don't take long to read, and entertaining to say the least. Read. Vote. Be one of us.
... one of us...
Last chance to vote, but I think the choice has probably been made at this point.
Badass story, Nathan. Thanks for letting me play. :)
Yep, Sound took this one. Well deserved. Congrats.
Well hell. Been on vacation last week and looks like I missed an awesome battle. Congrats Sound. Is there anyway I can still read your stories? Thanks guys.
I'll probably be work shopping mine soonish.
Cool Nathan, I'll read it there and give you a critique then. I picked that prompt and was looking forward to the battle but it happened to fall the week I was out of town and then closed the night I got back before I had a chance to read it.
I can send you mine if you want, Jonathan.
