    But I already voted, so I guess there is no escape.

    Thank you, girls. Two months in a row! Wow! To think I thought I wouldn´t come up with any ideas in time. Fortunately, my muse woke up five days before the deadline.

    Congrats to all those who participated this time- both writers and voters. A special thank you to those that helped me win again.

    Story Four: I liked the use of the poems and have always loved the story of Persephone, plus I loved that you used Chloe actually going to Lex to help her mother like I always wanted someone to write a story about. So dark and twistedly romantic, and still sad and it's far from a perfect relationship but you can't help but wonder if it might just be far better than any other.
    I have to thank Louise Glück´s poetry because it was what inspired me to write this fic. If I hadn´t come across it the day I did, I don´t think I´d have been able to participate this month.

    As regards Moira and Chloe´s arc in Progeny, I agree with you. I was so pissed off when they threw away yet another opportunity to give us some Chlex.When Chloe said: "If this drug is out there, I can get it, trust me. I have some pretty amazing resources at my disposal." , I thought Wow! She has the weapons to convince Lex to help her, and I wasn´t thinking about any dirty laundry here. Damn scriptwriters!

Lex might have effectively coerced Chloe into staying with him, but it’s also made clear that Chloe IS in love with him (as he is with her), and that she can eventually be happy by his side.
    Thanks for your nice words.Glad you appreciated it, somethingeasy. You aren´t amongst my usual readers, but if you´ve liked this one maybe you´ll enjoy my latest one-shots *blatant self-pimping here*. My muse has been behaving darklier and angstier than normal so I believe you´ll enjoy them.

    Thanks for your congrats. By the way, yours was one of the one-shots I enjoyed the most, Ultra.

    Now, will the other authors come forward?

    IMO, a lot of the participation in both voting and writing comes from anonymity. If someone wants to broadcast their vote or tell everyone which story they wrote, that's great, but it's not fair to pressure anyone. If this is a testing ground for new authors or just a low pressure way for authors to try something out, I think it can only work when we all agree it's completely optional to stand up and be counted.

    Personally, I think it's cooler when the stories remain unclaimed. I've always had more fun filling in the blanks myself instead of prying.

    I´m not pressuring anyone, darling. In the previous challenges most of us claimed authorship but it was done voluntarily. And we agreed that once the threads were moved, each fic would be identified with the name of its author if they so wanted it.

    Besides, I was the one who suggested the anonymous poll to increase participation in the first place, so I can´t very well be against it. I was just asking because I know there are some authors who won´t have trouble unveiling the mystery.
