Heresy-Online's Expeditious Stories 17-01: 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, 10 February 2017. 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:
1st Place: Myen'Tal, Metamorphasis, 3 pts
2nd Place: Brother Emund, The Long Watch, 2 pts
Nice! These were both good! I must admit, "Toxic" just didn't do it for me this time around. Nothing came to mind. These two stories of yours though - excellent work!
Myen, Yours took first clear and away. It makes a great intro to a larger story on the infiltration, or infestation, of a base by one nasty customer. A nice straight up horror story. No big guns, no super heroics, just plain ol' horrific death dealt by an seemingly unstoppable monster.
Emund, your story brings to mind an old pic of a psyker in a open-faced coffin-sized canister either being put into or taken out of the golden throne. If memory serves me right, I saw it first in the original Rogue Trader, but I've seen it other places since. Sadly I'm not sure where I've stored my Rogue Trader, and it's not an image easily found online else I'd put here, but it's the one image that always comes up when the topic of the Golden Throne and psyker mealtime comes up. :good:
1st, Brother Emund, The Long Watch, 3pts
Good take on theme this month, Brother Emund. I think the Long Watch really emphasizes the moral 'gray' area of the 41st millennium quite well. I like Paulo's line about always being a good servant of the emperor, even though he is an unsanctioned psyker. And the Inquisitor's reaction to that line actually surprised me, but I suppose the Inquisition looks upon psykers fated for Holy Terra differently than the others?
Good job on a challenging topic this month:smile2:!
1st Place: Myen'Tal, Metamorphasis, 3 pts
Well done, a nice story, short but gruesome!!
2nd: Brother Emund
I just realized this, but has your name always been Brother Emund? For some reason I always thought it was Brother Edmund, I've been calling you that for months:P.
