    Yes, why?

    Perhaps I'm misreading kitten's post but this:

    (Also, vote like me! Because I'm pretty cool.)

    STORY NUMBER 1! STORY NUMBER 1!
    seems to be letting the voters know which story is hers.

    And again, if I've misunderstood, please forgive me and ignore my question.

    No, kitten didn't write it, and I know that because I've spoken to who wrote it after I voted, she just likes number 1.

    You know, I just reread kitten's post, and you're right Mindy, it looks like she is just saying to vote for Story 1.

    I'm sorry, kitten, for misunderstanding your first post. Perhaps I should just mind my own business!

    On that note, I'm signing off. Have a good night everyone, and I promise to look before I post

    Well... Iīve got to admit I havenīt cast my vote yet. Iīve got to sleep on it.
    I've made no secret that I prefer higher rated, longer fics because they tend to be written by the experienced members who can handle the characters and the subject matter. I try to support the contests, but I hate fluff without substance. This isn't the place to get into it deeply, but I get more satisfaction when a story has high stakes like sex, violence, and intrigue. Every story deserves individual judgment, but I'm not shy about closing the link without finishing, either. Fanfiction is part of my entertainment, and if it doesn't entertain, I go elsewhere. I've been around N-S since 2003 and have made my way through a significant amount of the stories. Personal tastes are a right I exercise freely, and I invite anyone else to completely ignore my stuff if it doesn't suit.

    And Kit, I didn't write any of the stories, otherwise I wouldn't have posted here to support one. I like that these contests allow anonymity all the way through, because I think it's more approachable for people. My dashing pirate talk must have misled you.

    Her soul is senstive like a finely made tuning fork. It vibrates and resonates with every little hint of trauma, evil and monstrosity that might be humming in the air, and channels it into expressions of fiction... or recomended websites - somethingeasy

    High-rate not always guarantees that, and there are also experienced writers who pen stories that donīt go beyond R with the same degree of depth and originality when it comes to character exploration and plot. Still, I understand where youīre coming from.

    I try to support the contests, but I hate fluff without substance.
    So do I. I read and write fluffy from time to time, but I like it when itīs believable and has some depth. Fluffy doesnīt necessarily have to be "empty".

    Personal tastes are a right I exercise freely, and I invite anyone else to completely ignore my stuff if it doesn't suit.
    I agree 100% and I too am not shy to close a link if I find a story doesnīt suit me. After all itīs like having the remote in our hands. Why put up with something we donīt enjoy if we have the chance to change channel?

    Now. as regards your original post in this thread, it left no room for doubt that you were just supporting the story you liked best.

    Good to know I'm not the only one who didn't see whatever link is supposed to be there to view the results prior to voting.

    Alrighty everyone. It's come once again - the last day to vote. So everyone, take a minute to vote because it's the last day for it.

    And now, on the last day to vote, I'd like to take a moment to remind people why they should vote:

    1) Because the authors work hard to entertain us and we should show them our support.

    2) Because participation keeps a community strong. And this community is amazingly worth it!

    3) Because it's the last day.

    4) I'll be your best friend.

    5) Also, it's the last day.

    So, in summation -

    Vote! For this is the last day!!!

    ~Sarah~
