From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

We have so few votes this time, and I think it may be due to lots of busy-ness during the last few weeks of school with finals and such. I've extended the poll a couple more days to give everyone some more time to read and vote. If you already voted and left comments, thank you!!

I have voted, but I have not reviewed and there is a good reason for it. I do not want to give superficial reviews and I haven't had the energy lately to put some thought into the reviewing process. I'll make a compromise, though. My votes went to:

Holovid Moments by beehoon
Reckoning and Rescue by Tysyacha
Death of a Prophecy by JediAthos
I Couldn't Leave You by Topsite


I thought all four were relatively well written and they all kept my interest right through to the end.

Gah! See? That's all I can come up with right now! Ooh, please pray or wish or whatever you do that I'll regain some energy, both physical and mental very, very soon!

Thanks, Grace and Topsite

But evening is the great brightening dawn
when crested cocks crow all through the tall city

for those without their lovers

Death of a Prophecy by JediAthos seems to have won. Had the poll not been extended and if only beehoon hadn't had got more votes, him and me and Tysy would have joint second, but third is okay for me.

Well done JediAthos and I will be back in two months time for the next one.

Congrats to JediAthos for the victory, though I must admit my favorite was beehoon's Holovid Moments that took the second place. Congrats to her too and to Tysy and Topsite for the shared third place.

Emperor Devon, er... :P I have no idea why you all thought I was a guy. Meh! There's your lesson for the day, huh?

Topsite, it's ok, lol.

Hallucination, lol! What diffference would it have made anyway?

Thanks, igyman Your fic was really original! It was one of the fics I voted for.

It's OK beehoon. They thought I was a guy for months, too.

Congrats to JediAthos!

Thank you to everyone who entered and to everyone who offered comments.

And some thought you were a n00b after that comment about Malak losing his jaw from smoking.

Any idea when we'll get the next topic, btw?

I plead temporary insanity. I was taking vicodin after knee surgery.

JediAthos, as winner of this contest, you get to pick the next topic.
