Round one - challenge six voting post

Voting is now closes and results will be up shortly.

This is the voting post for round one challenge six, which is the final round. This round had the prompts of Celebrations and a time piece.

Voting is open until 9pm UK/4pm EST on Saturday the 28th of July - six days from now.

Anybody can vote – you don't have to be a writer. Writers you don't have to vote, although it would be good if you did.

As I'm running the comm. I am not voting, not even if there's a tie, as I know who wrote what and it wouldn't be fair.

Writers please don't vote for your own story either to win, also please don't tell people which one is your story and ask them to vote for it. Letting people know that there are stories here to vote on (without saying which is your) is good though.


How to vote.

As this is the final round and nobody is being voted out, there are no negative votes needed this round.

Please leave a comment (they are screened) below with the name/number of the entry you liked the best. Please give a reason, however brief, as to why you've chosen as you have.

So it would looks something like:

Story to win: Story X. It was such a unique take on the prompt, and their characterisation of Janet the Weevil was spot on.

Please read all the stories if you can before voting. If there's a reason why you can't read a story/stories such as triggering content (stories will carry warnings if this is present) that is fine, just read the stories you're able to. 

Please remember that the writer of the story will see what you've written - (Although not who wrote it, as feedback will be email/pm'ed to them if they wish to see it, minus the voters name.) 

Round one - challenge six story post

Okay this is the story post, please don't post your votes in the comment to this post. The voting post is here: http://torchwood-las.livejournal.com/11316.html

You may find that if your story is near the top of the word count for this weeks challenge, 1000 words, it might not all fit in a comment. If this is the case please email it to the address below.

2. You can post your story to torchwoodlas@gmail.com
You can have the story as the text of the email or as an attachment.


Skips cannot be used on this challenge as it's the final round.


If for some reason you are unable to use these options you can PM the story me at the_silver_sun
So we are on to the final round, 1-6.

Theme: Celebrations. (Birthdays, Christmas, Christenings, Weddings, New Years parties. The Eisteddfod. A jubilee street party. Or it could be somebody celebrating their favourite rugby team having won a match. Or maybe just celebratory drinks down the pub because everybody is alive.)

Additional word/object/element:  A time piece (A watch, a stopwatch, pocket watch, alarm clock, grandfather clock, town hall clock. It can be working or not.)

Maximum Word Count: 1000

Deadline:  9pm UK/4pm EST Sunday the 22nd of July.

When submitting your entry use the following header.




Skipping this round
Because this is the final round skips can no longer be used.


Any other information:

Because we will be having anonymous voting on the stories please don't post them anywhere until after the voting has finished, and it's been revealed who wrote what.

Stories don't need to be beta'd. If you do use a beta the 'don't vote for yourself' applies to both the writer and beta reader of the fic.

Please don't tell people which story is yours and ask them to vote for it. Telling people there's stories to vote on without saying which is your is good though, more readers/votes means more feedback for everybody.

I will let writers know when I've received their story. If you haven't heard in 24 hours or a couple of hours if it's on the deadline day I've not received it and could you send it again.

Any questions ask on this post and I'll try to answer them.

(I will put up the post for and about voting at the same time the story post goes up, which will be up as soon as I can manage after the deadline.)

Thank you to all the writers who've taken part, all your stories were great. And thank you to the 14 readers who voted, it's much appreciated.   Writers you may now cross post your stories wherever you wish. 

Our winner for this round is cookielaura who's story Eyes Open has an over all score of +3 votes, and took half of all the positive votes cast. So very well done.

Sadly we'll be saying goodbye for now to  sariagray who's story Like A Hero Going Home finished the round with -2 votes. It was a very tough round with lots of good stories, and so few votes separating three not winning stories. Well done for getting so far, and maybe we'll see more your stories if you chose to join again when we have our next round of sign ups in August. 

I've made a table with the results of this round and the skips writers have left here at google docs I will update as part of the results post each round. 

Use the post if you want to talk, discuss or otherwise chat about your fics for this round. You can ask for additional feedback in this post if you wish. (The voting feedback - the text, but not who gave it -  will be PM'd to you all shortly.)

Prompts for the final round will be up tomorrow night at 9pm UK/4pm EST

Just over half way through voting time

We're just over halfway through the six days of voting - voting closes 9pm Uk/4pm EST on Saturday, and so far there have been just 4 votes.

So voting and/or promoting so other people know there are stories to vote on (just don't say which one is yours if you are one of our four writers this round) is encouraged.

Round one - challenge five voting post

Voting is now closed. Results will be up in the next couple of minutes.

This is the voting post for round one challenge five. This round had the prompts of Mistakes and Weather.

Voting is open until 9pm UK/4pm EST on Saturday the 14th of July - six days from now.

Anybody can vote – you don't have to be a writer. Writers you don't have to vote, although it would be good if you did.

As I'm running the comm. I am not voting, not even if there's a tie, as I know who wrote what and it wouldn't be fair.

Writers please don't vote for your own story either to win or to vote out, and please don't tell people which one is your story and ask them to vote for it. Letting people know that there are stories here to vote on (without saying which is your) is good though.


How to vote.

Please leave a comment (they are screened) below with the name/number of the entry you liked the best, and the one that you liked the least. Please give a reason, however brief as to why you've chosen as you have.

So it would looks something like:

Story to win: Story X. It was such a unique take on the prompt, and their characterisation of Janet the Weevil was spot on.

Story to vote out: Story Y. It was an interesting idea, but there seemed to be no kind of conclusion to it.

Please read all the stories if you can before voting. If there's a reason why you can't read a story/stories such as triggering content (stories will carry warnings if this is present) that is fine, just read the stories you're able to. 

Please remember that the writer of the story will see what you've written - (Although not who wrote it, as feedback will be email/pm'ed to them if they wish to see it, minus the voters name.) 

Not sure how to give a positive or negative vote? A few answers/ideas under the cutCollapse )
