Okay, folks - voting is easy. Every AWer potentially gets three votes.

Read the stories posted here (password is holiday)
Pick your favorites.
Vote for three different stories.
PM those three story titles and #s to me.
Accomplish all this before Thanksgiving Day - November 22, 2012.

Winners will be announced after Thanksgiving (USian), before December 1st.

Questions?

Are people who submitted stories allowed to vote?

I think they have to, right Mac? Now I'm thinking some people may read and vote, unaware of contest parameters.

MacAllister posted this before (assuming nothing's changed. . .)

LOL, I knew I could look it up but I think it might be of more use to have it edited into the first post so people don't have to search for it :p

Also I had no idea US Thanksgiving could be on a Thursday.

And the best part is that we don't have to stand in line in freezing rain for three hours to vote here!

:D

Hah - you're absolutely right. How very USian-centric of me. *facepalm* Thanks for the nudge!

Oh really? Pffft.

Everyone who votes for me each gets a Porche, a house at their favorite vacation spot, a genie in a bottle, unicorns, puppies, kittens: all supplied in the backyard and umbrella drinks in hand by the pool. Tempted? Yes? Vote for me and I'll--

...oh wait!

Never mind.

Whatever you do, don't vote for me. I'm telling you that you can't. It's not allowed. Don't do it, voting for my story is forbidden.








ya see what I did there, right? Reverse psychology. it always worked on my kids. :Shrug:

Erm, having been on AW for over three years now, and knowing the creative minds that get a little bored sometimes and need a little light relief to fill those pencil-less moments, can I just clarify -- the puppy hasn't been... modified in any way, has it? I mean, it's not a unipup or punicorn, and its... erm, breathing? 'Cause I know what some of the likes of the AW horror lot are like if they got to it first, what they do with puppies and unicorns and anything innocent that's been left wandering about (I've been sent some scary, scary pictures!!).

:D ;)

P.s., will accept German Shepard puppydragons for votes.

*taps fingers*

*checks watch*

...

*observes puppies shaped like unicorns balancing on kittie tails*

...

Oh man, where is that Mac guy?

...

*stuffs face with the most unhealthy food while waiting*

Well, if I don't win, I'll volunteer as the next "Supersize Me!" :D (...Or not.)
