Hey, thanks guys.  And nice trophies, JudasFM!   I'm a little disappointed that Sinitrena didn't get more votes, though.  My personal opinion was that her's was the better piece this time around.  JudasFM has just reminded me of one of her brilliant yet subtle comments:

A recitation of this poem can last as long as three hours or as little as fifteen seconds.
(laugh)

And as I've said I do lament not having Mandle's full piece to compete against.  You gotta Michaelangelo up your Da Vinci work habits, bro!  I look forward to the completed piece sometime in the near future. ;)

Well, someone is gaining immortality now, having won SE7EN consecutive rounds in a row.
We should hire a bald hit-man to do his jo...
Err... I meant... Congratulations Baron!

  Seven!  Something happens if you hit ten, I'm not sure what, but something.  The streak continues...

Yeah sorry about that guys, but I had to put all effort into my MAGs entry, which also prevented me from properly voting for this contest...I did not have a spare minute of free time to even read the other entries, much to my shame...

I regret both and hope I can be forgiven...

I really gotta limit how many contests I join at a time, especially if one is a MAGs... ;)

Wow, Baron, seven in a row. Very, very impressive. Congratulations to another deserved win.

That's funny, because I honestly think yours was way better than mine. You wrote a suspensful story and added nearly as many information about your world as I put in mine, and I had no story at all (with less words, even, I think). Yours also has atmosphere and character while mine is rather dry. So yeah, again, you deserved to win.

Anyway, see you all next round.

Well, to be fair, one of the "wins" was actually a tie.  And three of the seven wins only had two entrants, vastly increasing my chances.  So I guess the lesson of my success is to never underestimate the power of showing up.  ;)

But thank you all for your kind words.  Now if they could all be channelled competitively into the next round.... :)
