Heresy-Online's Expeditious Stories 15-07: Confusion Voting

1927 Views 12 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Dave T Hobbit

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 August 2015. 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

Myen'Tal - Realm Bound - 1st place - 3 points. You did a great job this time sticking to the theme and drawing out the story. I enjoyed this story a lot; the transformation and connection and the confusion. Well written as well. If an Eldar story is done right it is fun and this story was fun. Also thank you for the kind words. I have fun writeing. I wasn't on for a long time because of a deep depression I was in.

Brother Emund - What you don't see won't harm you - 2nd place. 2 points. I had a good time reading this. The superiority complax of the govenor was well shown. His confusion at the end was awesome. A very well written story.

Treesniffer - Confusion at the End of the World 3rd place. 1 point. This story had a lot in it that I wish could have been more drawn out. This is one of the times I wish there was a higher word count for the contest. I like the idea of an alternate universe spin. I have seen a few Dan Abnett books with a little bit of a twist in The Horus Heresy books he has done, so I know there is room for it in this setting. There was a lot of confusion for sure, I just think the sequinces needed better set ups. Hard to do sometimes with word constraints.

I'm writing from a Holiday Inn computer without spell check. I'm suposed to be smarter for working here. Without spell check I do not feel smarter. lol:shok:

I really do enjoy this competition. And having you guys to go up against is not easy, but of much worth. I always have to think outside the circle so I can even compete.

Also... where are my rep points for winning the last 3 months? Come on man!!!! Wine cry poor me! lol :grin:
