Default Heresy-Online's Expeditious Stories 16-01: Voting







Congratulations to all of you who participated in this month's competition and making it a success! Thank you all as well, for helping to add colour to the already exceptional fanfic forum here on Heresy. Hopefully in the following months, we can continue to build up interest and maybe bring some more fresh blood to HO's fanfic forums.

Voting works as such:
Each reader (not just writers) can cast three votes, ranking them 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Feel free to share your thoughts, comments, or brief reviews on the stories as well, since each of the writers worked hard to get their entries up.

Scoring works like this:
1st place: 3 pts
2nd place: 2 pts
3rd place: 1 pt

When you vote, ensure that you vote in the following format:
1st Place: Author, Name of Story, 3 pts
and so on.

Unfortunately, to prevent any possible dramas, you cannot vote for your own story. If there are fewer than four entries, you do not have to cast all three votes.

Additionally, if you wrote a story, you must vote! As the competition grows, I think it is necessary to point this out. If you enter but do not vote, any votes for your story(ies) will not be counted.

By the end of the voting period, all votes will be tallied and a winner declared.

Once this winner is declared, the winning story will be placed into the Winning HOES thread which has been stickied in this forum. The winning writer will be awarded the Lexicanum's Crest (seen above!) forum award for fiction excellence during the quarterly Awards.

Just to emphasize again, you do not need to have written a story to cast your votes! The more people that cast their votes, the better!

The deadline for voting will be midnight GMT 9 February 2016. At that time this thread will be completed, and the winner declared.

The rewards for entering/winning are:
Participation - 1 reputation point
3rd Place - 2 reputation points
2nd Place - 3 reputation points
1st Place - 4 reputation points

Here are the entries from HOES 16-01:

I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition?
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious;
And, sure, he is an honorable man."

1st Place; Brother Emund, The Pain of Sacrifice, 3pts
2nd Place: HonorableMan, Grey, 2pts

These were both good reads and you could definitely feel for them. I gave Bro E. the edge because the antagonist was simply environmental and it drew out the emotion even more so. As I went through the story, I knew that their failure was inevitable but kept hoping they would successfully make the pilgrimage. Granted, in a way they did.

The uplift at the end, even if just imagined, was icing on the cake. The end of Grey, though space didn't allow, would have excelled if Aethel had a moment to savor the loss of his interrogator.

Both though; Very well written!

The Book of Grudges will know their name.

1) Brother Edmund, The Pain of Sacrifice, 3pts
2) HonorableMan, Grey, 2pts

I think Treesnifer sums it up nicely, I really enjoyed both stories. Good work both of you!
