    @Zerotonin , is @Tenderiser not doing the competitions anymore or is she just on holiday? Have you officially taken over as administrator? Don’t mean to ask too many questions :p

    Both very good stories. I voted for the one with the biggest surprise at the end.

    I have, for the forseeable future, taken over the short story competition's administration.

    Voting is back up, with two additional stories added because the WF was down during the last few days of submissions. Please read those two before re-voting!

    I voted several days ago. We could use a few more votes here.

    All the stories were good. I ended up voting for Only Sleeping. The writer's choice and use of 2nd person narrative suites the story perfectly.
    Well done, everyone!
