Not to extend the tie further, but I voted for Stealing Beauty. The characterization is excellently and disturbingly done, and the premise is deeply dark yet believable. I am not sure what depraved imagination created this story, but they did an excellent job.

And, the secret is out now that I didn't get a story in. To be honest, I dithered between a story about a terraforming organise who is repulsed by humanity and the fetal development of a monstrosity, but ran out of time to execute either. Maybe both will resurface in a future challenge...

Great job, everyone!

Looks like we have a 4 way tie and only about 6 hours to go!

As there's a 300 hundred in July (and hence no 100) there'll be no problem extending into July with a tie breaker poll if it comes to it.

A five way tie! Never had one of those before.

I think we once had a two way and ended up with one person choosing the genre and the other choosing the theme for the next month.

I suggest a five way tie-breaker.

It occurs to me that if D3athw4lker doesn't return then the writers will have to reveal themselves so we will all know who penned what

(In such an instance I claim dibs on the winning story)

Haha sorry dannymcg, I'm back to ensure no tomfoolery!!

Thanks Mosaix for keeping it going with the Tie Breaker Poll, looks like we'll have a definitive winner after all.

You'll need to wait and see who penned what though...

I enjoyed all of the stories, but today I needed a laugh, and Dr Windows in "Hollis P. Wood's Bloated Cyst" was there for me. Good luck to all, CC

Ignore this space. I've goofed again.

Congrats to the writer of Such is Life - a freaky premise!

My story was Big Bad Barney so thanks to Ashleyne and M.Robert Gibson for your votes in the amazing 5 way tie breaker :)

Also thanks to the 2 who voted for my story in the original voting - it's been closed and my 'clicking' won't now reveal who those 2 were

Being able to see who voted for what is an option set when the poll is created.

‘Such Is Life’ was mine!
