This concludes the Ninth Heresy-Online Expeditious Stories Competition!
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, which works quite conveniently as there are only three stories, 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 you cast any votes, you have to cast all three, no picking a single story and nothing more.
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.
As a reminder, the monthly winners will be placed in The Heretic
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 US Eastern Standard Time Saturday, 24 September 2011
. At that time this thread will be completed, the winner declared, and the new HOES topic for Competition 8 will be posted.
Here are the entries from HOES 8:
Adrian: Doubt, the Death of Faith
Todeswind: Twenty Years
Dinadan: The Protection of Faith
Gothik: I Walk the Line
Serpion5: In the Face of Reason
As a reminder, you don't need to have written a story to cast your votes!
Any and all Heretics are more than welcome to check out the stories and cast their votes for their favorites. Feedback on the stories (whether just the ones that have earned your votes or all of them) is always greatly appreciated by the authors and more than welcome as well.
Now get voting!
