June Challenge RUN-OFF--"A Foreign Perspective"

OK...we had so many high-quality entries this time around that we've gone into a run-off between two of them. Both of you guys are winners in my eyes (heck, I actually picked both of you, myself!), but unfortunately we do have to decide!

Thank you to everyone else who entered...we had a LOT of strong entries, so it was an honor to receive that sort of response to my prompt.

The run-off vote will last for only 48 hours...so make sure to make your choices known ASAP!


Camelopard: "The Real Thing"
TheLoneRedshirt: "To Simply Exist"

Re: June Challenge RUN-OFF--"A Foreign Perspective"

SUCH a tough choice! Really, to my mind, either one deserves first place. But I ultimately went with TLR's entry.

I am a sap. What can I say?

I voted for Camelopard.

What can I say? I'm a sucker for a noir story.

Re: June Challenge RUN-OFF--"A Foreign Perspective"

Congrats to both of you. I was almost tempted to make a new account so I could vote for both, since they are both very deserving. But I decided against it, and the vote went to TLR.

Re: June Challenge RUN-OFF--"A Foreign Perspective"

Damn I missed the original vote! I thought I still had today. Wouldn't have made any difference since these were the two stories I was thinking of voting for...

Of the two, have to go with the heart-strings and vote for TLR.

Re: June Challenge RUN-OFF--"A Foreign Perspective"

I think we can call this one. Nine of the eleven voters in the original poll have reported in, and with only two remaining, I can't win.

I hereby concede. Congratulations to TheLoneRedShirt

You sure, Camelopard? New voters could easily come in...there's nothing forbidding it.

Only if you're completely sure! Because I don't want to deny you a fair contest.

Re: June Challenge RUN-OFF--"A Foreign Perspective"

OK...I will close the contest if that is your wish.

But truly, I felt like both you and TLR had winning-quality entries, so while I give it to TheLoneRedshirt to name the next challenge--I congratulate you both!
