Wait, vote for just one?

Just kidding!

Vote cast! We have an early leader-but only half of the previous voters have weighed in.

Re: RUNOFF Vote - July Challenge

With the most sincere apologies to PSGarak I had to cast my vote for Nerys Ghemor's excellent A Stone's throw away.

This was really a hard choice for me, two excellent Cardassian stories, How can a Gul chose? I went with NG because I think that the Thirteenth Order series is one of the best examples of worldbuilding that I have ever read.

Re: RUNOFF Vote - July Challenge

I'm just happy to see two Cardassian stories in the running. And I would never be ashamed to be beat by something as poetic and haunting as Nerys Ghemor's writing. I have to agree with Thor Damar about her "Thirteenth Order". For those of you who haven't yet checked that out on Ad Astra, get cracking! Go! Go!

Yeah, had to go with the Lady Ghemor as well. Hers was chilling in its subtlety, and you couldn't help but feel sympathy for the main character.

Garak, you're was good too. But I only got one vote.

Re: RUNOFF Vote - July Challenge

It's a draw at the moment (at 23:12 GMT). Has the Cardassian vote been counted?

Re: RUNOFF Vote - July Challenge

The pre-Federation United Earth vote goes to the rather anguished Tayben Berat. Both stories were beautifully written, however in the end, the powerful emotion of Nerys' story managed to tip the scales ever so slightly in her favor.

Yeah, you might have to fight it out Cardassian style, monologues at ten paces

Maybe we need a new rule - only one Cardassian story per contest!

We could declare them joint winners, and they could collabarate on a challenge for the month of August.
