Any objections? I thought it'd be more voter friendly to make a booth.

Despite some technical difficulties, my vote goes to:

Sticky's Salem Witch

2. Mostly Harmless

This is fun. When do we get to play again?

I enjoyed all the entries. I'm sorry mine was so confusing but no, Sticky goo, I'm not going to rewrite it!! I'm here to free associate and have fun.

Now..Sarajb's short was amazing and like drinking a fizzy champagne while on the back of a speeding motorcycle.
Vandall's was amazing as well. Wow, that guy knows how to put together some stunning descriptions.
But my vote goes to one of the shorter ones which actually put me in a place and made my mind become a camera. Tomatobob, I actually leaned over closer to the computer screen to get a look at that ant. SO....my vote goes to
Happy belated Halloween all.

When is the voting over? Do we need to wait 11 days for the provisional ballots?

If it's over then the winners are:

1 Mostly Harmless with 15 pts*
2 The Fire with 12 pts*
3 The Pumpkin with 6 pts*

* one point for third place vote, two for second place and three for a first place vote

Each vote has always counted as one, I thought.

I chose three favorites, not first, second, and third place.

The "a vote is a vote" system makes it:

1. Mostly Harmless : 6
2. The Fire : 5
3 (tie) Salem Witch, Shock Therapy, John Doe, Pumpkin : 2

Either way, congrats and good job, everybody.

I am not voting. I have not read but one entry so far, and will not vote this late. But I want to say that Fortean did an excellent job with "Mostly Harmless."

Now I will read "The Fire."

Edited to add: Okay, I just read "The Fire." Very creepy, entertaining, well-written. I keep wondering, though ... Is there political allegory here? The demon in the stove ... A symbol of greed, a demand for more and more? And the wood ... Didn't George Bush say, "Need any wood?" Is this a Republican symbol for wealth? And the American history book that represents the heritage of the nation ... sacrificed to the fire of greed.

Or maybe it was all Freudian, with the female teacher (sexually frustrated, no doubt, like all schoolmarms of that era) sending the boys out to "get wood" and bring it back to her to feed to the "demon" (repressed sexual appetite) in the "stove" (symbol of vagina/uterus). And, in the end, sexuality destroys everything.

There could be a lot here, Wenonah, that you never thought about.


I hope you realize I am just kidding. Very good short script.

LMFAO ~ omg you are killing me. :rollin

But hey... if you can see all that stuff then I'll just remain mysterious and say 'yes! yes! you're totally right - it's a sexual-political -demonic satirical view through the eyes of a stay at home mom.'
