    Check back after 22nd April, where you can vote for your favourite stories before the top ones go to our judging panel!
    With the voting thing...

    Most people will just read the ones of the most commonly known TSRians or their friend and vote for them. Leaving all the lesser known guys out. Especially with exam time, people won't be able to read EVERYONE's story.

    We've been finding that all of the stories have been getting views, and we aren't doing our voting based on the rep the stories get due to favouritism
    No voting is completely perfect but it's the best we can do

    The voting stage has only just closed, and we're now reading and judging all of the shortlisted entries. We have a panel of judges and are currently in the middle of coming to our final decision, there are lots of things going on behind the scenes at TSR at the minute too

    First off a HUGE thank you for TheOtherSide., if she didn't tag all those people, my story would never have gotten the popularity that it did. So I am so very grateful to you TheOtherSide. and I wish you the best in your exams :ahee:.

    Thank you also to Ethereal World for tagging me in the first place (who also ninja'd my man Hydeman).

    A HUGE thanks also to everyone who voted for my story, repped and complimented me on it, YOU GUYS ARE THE BESSST!! <3 <3 Seriously, I love all you guys that are tagged. :teeth:

    Thank you so much Gingerbread101 and to all the judges for picking my story to be the winner. I would love to speak to you guys to find out what your favourite part was.

    Congratulations to etherealinsanity and Changing Skies for winning the other prizes.
