    In case of making really sad ones; yes.
    Aye. Perhaps you can fragment your story. ...it may not fit well as a short story, but it is like;
    Paragraph Victim
    Paragraph Victim
    --- --- ---
    Paragraph Murderer
    --- --- ---
    Paragraph Victim
    ...etc., like that?

    Also, I also voted for A Volunteer For Death.

    My main story (see RRL link for latest update) is a harem xianxia. Protag came of age, so it is boning time.

    Oh dear that moment when you just read the categories and then go writing and then come back only to realize its October voting and your story might not be viable!!!!
    PS/ I'm choosing "Its all about u" since i think it might have more freedom with many themes as long as the story is in 2nd perspective. Something fresh and interesting.

    Ooo then don't write sad ones

    Well but I haven't figured out the central crime scene (?)
    I dunno how to do this *rolls around lazily*
    xD I see xD good luckk
    xD well you can always post something late for a previous theme, or just publish it as a short story you wrote~ which one did you write for?~

    hmmm
    well, i'm reminding everyone reading this to vote for the ones you'd write~

    i see.. Did you not have anything u should do?

    This:
    p.p.s I'm considering a merge of 2 runner up topics for November and forcing a rewriting for December (or a form of rewriting + add one more element based on the voting) to wrap the year up. Or may be the other way around. Thoughts?

    @Pyoo I'm good with the runner ups for future votes! \(^^)/

    The tags though... Almost everyone after Zone-kun were already at the list... >.>

    I'll give you a new version in alphabetical order once I get on PC...

    What about the rewriting one? Good? Bad? Or should I just only do the merge 2 runner ups on December and bring back 1 runner up on November? T^T

    *cheers on you for your hardwork*

    Voted for It's my horror story.
    And honestly, I was surprised by the lack of votes on it :/ (It only had 1 vote... my vote)

    I voted for It's all about you \o/

    Second person is different so it's worth a try. If it does get chosen I'll write something! Maybe!

    ayes!
    I guess not man ycould imagine why a horror story criminal would do what they do.. it's very hard to write the prompt in an imagination inducing way :(
    it's a reproposed, ie it didn't win previously.. which is a shame~
    it's interesting! I think adding a horror element to it is fun/easy too~ I can imagine something fun for horror n 2nd person writing >w<
    write something nevertheless \o/
