    The results are interesting to view. Not what I expected, although I have no idea what I was expecting. All of these would be great topics, I can't wait to take them on.

    QUESTION: For seven deadly sins, would we have to include them all, or could we theme the piece on just one?

    :)

    All contests are open to wide interpretation to encourage entries. As such, you could write about one or all of the sins, or something else entirely, providing it is clearly inspired by the theme.

    Wasn't Immortality the theme a few contests ago? I guess there's a wide range of interpretations for it, but I'd rather something new.

    True, immortality was the theme of SSC 38 - the next will be 49. Contests last 2 weeks each, so there will have been at least 20 weeks between the contests, and members have an enduring interest in the theme. And I think it has quite a few interpretations - think classic horror, vampire, werewolves etc, think mythology, fantasy and legend, kings, elves, common peasants etc, think reality setting, how would immortality work in the real world?

    This voting determines the next contests, plural. I'll probably run the top 4 voted-for themes in the coming weeks.
