(including Harbringer...for a little laugh)

I believe that's Harbinger, not Harbringer....

Thank you, Mut. I needed to write it. It was very helpful, but I don't feel the need to have it part of a competition.

Sunday it is then, but I believe it's a bit too short. I won't be able to make the poll unless everyone who wrote a story has chosen which one they want to use, or if they don't want to enter the competition.

Mut - Gina
The Mad Monk - Theft

Everyone else will have to choose the stories they want to use.

So I guess, usless someone else is going to submit, Echo *ahem* can post the poll. I choose "Death Row" as my entry.

I did. Pay attention! :p

I'll be entering the only one I wrote.

Unless, of course, my demonic familiar tells me not to. But until then, consider this my intent to enter.

Is it me, or is the poll still, I dunno, non-existant?

I have very limited time to get online and not everyone has chosen his/her story which they will be entering into the contest. There may be some who don't want to enter and we'll have to wait for everyone who wrote a story to say what story, if any at all, they want to enter into the contest. I work 11 hours a day and sleep for about 5-6 hours so that leaves little time for something like this.

Ouch. Stressful work day...
Maybe one of us could take over (and maybe the rest of us could choose their freakin' story) and make the poll. I'd gladly do it.

Days, not day. It's been like this for a few weeks but it isn't really that hard as the busiest parts of the day are around lunch and in the evening. Not much in between. And since it's a pizza place I'm working at I get a pizza every day (two pizzas a day, in fact). So, anyone else want to take control of this whole thing then, as ds490 suggested, since I can't?

I'll do it, as soon as everyone chooses their entry. That was a hint, guys. A hint. Hint, hint.

So far I have confirmation of these stories:

Theft - Mad Monk
Gina - Mut
Death Row - ds490
Don't Believe Us. Believe in Yourself - En Kerklaar

So Lancer and Sockets- please choose your entry/if you're entering. And to everybody, can I put the stories on my site??? Only Mystery and Mut have answered me.

Hey, I answered! Though to see just what my answer was, you'll have to scroll back up! Mwuhahahaha!

Well, I guess the deadline isn't going to be Sunday night, then (unless you make a really fast poll). Next Saturday alright? That's when I get back.

I saw your answer...I just put the wrong name. Don't ask me how or why I put Sockets...I don't have a freakin' clue.
