    Winter Contest 2017 Voting Thread

    So as this led to an interesting issue because it wasn't explicitly stated in the fall thread. You can only vote for 3 entries, period. If you vote for more than 3 the 3 stories that appear earliest in the poll will receive your votes.

    Also, as may be obvious from at least one story in this one, yes permission was given to use existing characters so some of the stories may be obvious who wrote them. This is expected.

    And last but not least, as I already mentioned in the one thread most likely to cause this issue: Yes, you will be mocked mercilessly if you complain about the stories without having read them. This is especially true for Gay Folk Burning Faggots on the Fire and Frohliche Weihnachten, Seig Heil. Seriously, read the stories in full before commenting on them, especially if it's to complain about them.

    And really last but not least:

    MAKE SURE YOUR TIMEZONE SETTINGS IN YOUR ACCOUNT ARE CORRECT! IF THEY ARE WRONG, YOU WILL SEE THE WRONG CLOSING TIME FOR THE POLL!

    I forgot to note: Yes, the poll was extended a few days past the original closing date to account for the extension to allowed submission deadline.

    Also, sadly, my own story was not included because I didn't finish editing it, I will post it as soon as that is done somewhere on the forums

        uh... well I did a dumb actually. Apparently I deleted it after making it LOL!

        I shall fix that shortly.

          Since I've finally gotten around to reading all the stories, I figure I'll have a go at guessing.
          Feel free to neither confirm or deny the accuracy of my guesses until the reveal.

          In alphabetical order:
          Gay Folk Burning Faggots on the Fire - Ally
          Frohliche Weihnachten, Seig Heil - CuteKitten
          New Beginnings - Gummybear
          Eternal Kiss - Kerry
          Stranger on the Train - Kerry

          ...I think.
          The voices in my head got weirded-out and left long ago.

              I also think that CK wrote Frohliche Weihnachten. If so, CONGRATS, Cute-Kitten! If not, CONGRATS, whoever! It really was the best story here, in my estimation.

                  Just a heads up, but the final totals may change. There are some database errors recorded related to this poll and I need to contact several people to verify some things.

                  If you received a database error after voting if you could PM what your votes should have been it would save me some time. And before anyone decides to be a smartass and try to pull a fast one: I can see which users had errors associated with their votes, just the DB log didn’t log the exact query or I could fix it without having to communicate with anyone

                    Okay, the total number of voters is still off, but the numbers reflect the actual voting now for the ones that weren't counted properly due to the database errors.

                    Congrats to Kerry (Eternal Kiss) for 1st place, CK (Frohliche Weihnachten, Seig Heil) for second, and Kerry and Gummybear for their 3rd place tie

                    Sorry, Ally. You still came in last, but you did have one more vote than was listed originally

                        I stand by my original statement that yours was the best story here. I sincerely appreciate the votes and the first place finish, though. I think "Eternal Kiss" is a good story; I was proud of it (especially the cats). But I am in awe of your story, which (come to think of it) is often a feeling a have when reading your work. I don't know what you actually do for a living, but if it doesn't involve writing, quit right now and find something that does. I'm dead serious. You are amazing.

                          Aww, I'm blushing! Thank you. You're amazing, too- your plots and stories pull people right in for a fun ride.

                            I think I've repeated myself enough on IRC, but man, picking what to vote for was really hard this time around. It could've been anyone, and that's a good thing.

                            Congrats to the winners, and many thanks to you all, this was a fun read.
