We have a 2-way tie.

You have until 23:59 (GMT) on August the 30th to make your choice.


The two stories still in contention:


The Cloak of Insignificance by johnnyjet

My beloved Penelope was imprisoned in the castle dungeon.​
Being frugal, I procured a cloak of insignificance rather than a cloak of invisibility. Essentially works the same.​
I threw on the plain gray cloak and walked boldly into the castle, ignored by everyone I encountered.​
Unfortunately, Penelope ignored me as well. She ran off with the prison guard.​
Depressed, I locked myself in her abandoned cell.​
Why does no one know I'm here?​
Hello?​




Over at the Headquarters of The Ancient and Honourable Guild of Barbarian Heroes by M. Robert Gibson

"I'd like to join the guild, please."​

"What? With those garments?"​

"What do you mean?"​

"Which beast did you slaughter with your bare hands for that cloak? A stag? A bear?"​

"Chamois goat actually."​

"But you defeated it?"​

"No, it fell off a cliff."​

"And that loin cloth. Wolf?"​

"Lemming."​

"And you killed it?"​

"Not exactly. It died of old age."​

"Those boots. Let me guess. Angora?"​

"Yes, nice aren't they?"​

"Application denied. Go away."​
