I hope I would end up as a runner up, simply because i accidentally deleted my story after posting. Though I seriously doubt it, rather than a fact filled story like the winner, my story was all for entertainment value. Imagine a Star Trek episode directed by the guys from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and you might get a story like mine.
Ah, well -- at least it seems Thalasi has been granted the newest forum title: "Great Explorer!" (Exclamation mark included. )
Congrats again, Thalasi!
Well now that IS some movement forward, and I too offer congrats anew to Thalasi! Fine work indeed!
Would I prefer the title Great Explorer! ... or even just Explorer (if that's what runners-up get) to Senior Member? You betcha!
The wait continues.... &/
EDIT: On further consideration, and not knowing if it will hurt or help my chances, I have posted my entry in the Holodeck section in Zott's 'Planet Contest Entries' thread... for those interested. Feedback welcome, 'specially if you like it.
