RoM 06: Voting


The river flow has stopped!  Get out of the water and vote on your favorite entries.

In order, vote for your Top 3 in the comments.   Remember, you must have submitted a Muse 1 AND a Muse 2 in order to be able to vote.

You have through the end of the 24th of February to vote.  The winner will be announced on the 26th.


  1. All right, then. I have to say, my Top 3 are extremely close. In fact, my Top 3 is pretty much entirely mood-based.

    As such, I'm going to go with...

    1. JAH*H - The aesthetic quality is wonderful, and it's a delight to read. I think "more" is in order, but in my current mood, I'm giving this one the 1 spot.
    2. tom - Between your technical expertise and your knack for quirky, high-concept, it's hard to dislike your work. There's some sense of rush and even a little laziness, but it's a fun time.
    3. Baino - Despite the despicable presentation, there's a lovely narrative quality to the story, and it's a quite believable tale. I'd have liked more deliberation, but it's nowhere near as bad as you profess.

  2. 1- jeffscape
    2- scratching cat
    3- jah-h

  3. Thanks everyone. It was a push and super hard this time round being so out of practice. Honorable mention to our new comer and to William who actually managed more than 2 entries but here's the vote:
    1. Jeffscape. Well written, fun. Good man-made myth about Olympus and the lost goddess. Nice work
    2. Harnett-Hargrove. Perhaps because I knew that Jayne had lost her dog recently, the words were sad, emotive and revealing. Short but so concise and inimitably H-H's style
    3. Half Moose. Tom also has an inimitable style. Shakey start but the last three chapters had me in. Loved the combo of science fiction and the superhero/supernatural.

  4. I refuse to vote on the grounds that it's too dang hard.

    Such diverse entrees. Doesn't surprise knowing the usuals.

    I am disappointed that I will not be voting on WtR's beginning of (want I 'd like to see) a descent into the mind of a crazy, evil, comic writer.

    Ute; An intriguing preamble with an impending second quest - I do enjoy your style. I'm hoping my comments to you got there, as I did not get any confirmation that they did. Hope you enjoyed the process, and hope to read you again - Jeff obliging.

    Tom; space stories become you, as you do it so very well. I can see it opening up as the players are all there for your bidding.

    Helen; Bravo, A story that made since, was believable, even having a moral — in your slightly twisted way.

    Jeff; You spinner, you. I would only be more impressed if you had invented from scratch. A round of applause for massaging and building the characters into a new myth, in your indubitable style.

    Apologizing for the vote: As I would really put you all on the same line, since I admire all of the abilities you each own. Lost view of the muse, at times, but I'd like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, as some of us use the muse very literally, others more abstractly, and a muse is a jumping point, yes?
    Okay, enough chit chat.

    1. Tom
    2. Jeff
    3. Helen

  5. Sorry about that stop ....
