    I pointed that out a while back, but Ack didn't seem to be interested. But yeah, now that stories could win with like 600-700 points, having stories with 1000+ points that cannot win feels particularly sad.

    (At one point there was a comment to the effect of "my prediction spreadsheet must be borked, because it says Bait & Switch would win in a few rounds even though it hadn't been on the voting list for a while". I noted that the spreadsheet's prediction actually made perfect sense - it was saying that B&S would end up with the most points that round even if it got no further votes.)


    EDIT: before anyone says "if you want these stories so much, just pay for them"... maybe if I actually start having enough money. A stable earning of at least $200 per month would be a good start; I'd prefer more like $300 or even $400, but getting that high might take a while.
    (Besides, IIRC, the bonus chapter backlog is booked something like a year in advance anyway, so even if I could have paid I couldn't have done much.)

    Also - this might surprise you - I'm not actually very interested in either of those two stories; neither of them sounds like the sort of plot that I could realistically have enjoyed. I'm just a bit sad about how they ended up with more points than they could use and no way to actually use them.

    I dropped some stories from the round because honestly, I'd taken too much on, and I was taking far too long to get back around to regular stories.

    I will look at some of the inactive ones, and see where I want to go with them.

    Well, Wyvern is up. Coming next would probably be ... Hostage Situation, then Reality Intrudes, One More Trigger, Meet the Heberts and NSW, in no particular order.

    Check out Sleepyfoo for a reasonable prediction.


    Anyway, thanks again for voting, and I hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoy writing them.
