I think most of the terror came from the "how could someone kill off Chloe and so many others". I tend to kind of be immune to horror after some of my nightmares.

Before I vote: are we allowed to vote for our own entries?

There's no way anyone can control that. I'd say it's considered unsportsmanlike, though in some contests (like the Forumite Election), it actually makes total sense to vote yourself. ;)

figured as much, I consider it unsportsmanship as well...

As for the Shipping contest: I voted for DA's shipping story.
Not only for the elaborate Old-English, but because his was the only actual cross-comic shipping story.
Most used Layla - Tiffany or just stuck with EC.
Since Tiffany appeared in both comics I don't think it's cross-comic to ship her with Layla.

Note: I did, however, really enjoy the writing of each contestant.

I still have to read all of the longer ones, then I'll vote. :)

@Muchacho: Thanks! :D But I note fen's little story was also cross-comic!

Sigh...and here I had another entry for the shipping contest, but I wasn't sure that I should post it anyway- it's kind of really NSFW. Probably melt your computers.

I just realized that me and Gil are the only ones in the contest who doesn't have a color/title yet :p
This is not the greatest signature in the world, no. This is just a tribute.

Well, after a while, it's just us old hands... And the few regulars who deny the contests.

But if voting continues like this, DnE may win, but you will be a close second and nab a shiny!!! :D

Well, Searcher is the other one who doesn't have a color or a title. I think he did a great job on his story, though :)
