We had 26 voters this week. All the votes have been tabulated, and the final results are in. The final stories, in order of votes:

01. Failure to Communicate - celli
02. Bananas and Raspberry Creme - wickedwords
03. Shaking Hands With the Devil - starrylizard
04. Speaking in Tongues - darkhavens

Congratulations to celli, winner of the first round of Atlantis: Last Visible Writer!


Obviously, this challenge wouldn't work without the participation of some wonderful and talented writers -- thank you so much to everyone who was part of this little experiment! I hope you all had as good a time writing and reading as I did moderating!

Due to things like NaNoWriMo, finals, holidays, etc., the next round will not take place until January, 2007, but I hope to see all of you again then!


Authors, if you'd like to see any specifc comments about your final round stories, please leave your email address here, and I'll send them to you.

Round #1 Challenge #8 - Voting

This is it, folks -- the final vote! And so of course, the rules are a little different. Please read carefully.

Read each entry, and comment with the number & title of the fics IN THE ORDER YOU LIKED THEM BEST. That means the story you liked the very best would be in the #1 slot, the story you liked second best would be in the #2 slot, etc.

You are not required to include your reasoning, but it would be nice. Authors will be provided with any comments their fic receives upon request, and though it will be completely anonymous, please bear that in mind when commenting.

Please include the number AND the title, to eliminate confusion. An example of how to vote:

Favorite
1. 00) Title - Reason
2. 00) Title - Reason
3. 00) Title - Reason
4. 00) Title - Reason


Voting is screened, and will remain open through WEDNESDAY evening. Voting is open to anyone, so please feel free to link to this post - but remember authors, DO NOT reveal which story is yours until the voting is finished. Once the winner & eliminations have been announced, you may post your story anywhere you like.

The winner of this vote will be the winner of Round 1!

All entries are here.

Round #1 Challenge #7 - Voting

Please read each entry, and comment with the number of the THREE FICS you liked THE LEAST. I know it's getting more difficult as the number of entries gets smaller, but do your best. When voting, you must provide a reason for your selection, why one fic didn't work as well as another for you. Please provide concrete reasons, and don't vote strictly by personal preferences (e.g. pairing, POV, etc.) -- however, your explanation doesn't need to be lengthy. Authors are allowed to vote, though obviously not for themselves.

You may also vote for your most favorite fic, though a reason is not required for that. Please select only ONE (i.e. no ties).

Authors will be provided with any comments their fic receives, upon request; while it will be completely anonymous, please bear that in mind when commenting.

Please include the number AND the title, to eliminate confusion. An example of how to vote:

Least favorite
31) Title - Reason
43) Title - Reason
52) Title - Reason

Most favorite
38) Title


Voting is screened, and will remain open through Tuesday evening. Voting is open to anyone, so please feel free to link to this post - but remember authors, DO NOT reveal which story is yours until the voting is finished. Once the winner & eliminations have been announced, you may post your story anywhere you like.

This week, two authors will be eliminated.

If you would like to make comments about any entries which are neither your least favorite nor your most favorite, please do so here.

There are seven authors left, so this is the last regular challenge of this round - two more authors will be eliminated, and then it will be time for the final challenge! If you have any questions, please post them here in a separate comment.
