It's time to vote in April's Bluffhanger contest.

Entries are to be rated out of 10. Obviously judging will be very subjective, but entries should be judged mostly on how well the submission achieves the "so bad, it's good" criterion, as well as its creativity, amusement factor, how badly you wanted to know how the cliffhanger resolved and how satisfying the resolution was. Each entrant should give his or her own submission(s) a rating of 10.

The attached file is a compilation of all entries.

This was a rather cool contest. A lot of entries to vote on, but fun to do so. I'll save my comments on which ones I thought were coolest for after the voting

Voted, and a hearty "Well done!" to those of you with rare talent.

Can it be possible for a particularly pathetic entry to count *against* an eight-timer prize? Please?

Well, the results are in. Thanks to everyone who participated: judges and competitors.

In 1st place, with a "what goes around, comes around" entry, is Tahnan!

In 2nd place... it's Tahnan again. This time with a scenario that I could imagine as an alternate ending to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid... if it had taken place in the modern day Arctic instead of early 20th century that is.

And in 3rd, let's congratulate Lamkin for his tale of unrequited revenge.

Hope you all enjoyed the contest!

Yeah, I sort of had that feeling.

I was uncertain whether or not it'd be possible to win two places.
Hey, I'm just happy to land in there somewhere, and I thought Tahnan's entries were by far the best.
(I loved the part where he'd interrupted himself with the blood analogy.)
:)

tradition states that you can only claim one spot on the top three. Wouldn't want someone cleansweeping the top 3 now.

Well colour me pink; I did not know that. In that case, we have a revised top three.

In 1st place... Tahnan.(*)

In 2nd place... Lamkin!

And though it would appear we have a tie for 3rd place between Lamkin's fed up gun-packing cows and Mouse's entry that shows just how quickly our feelings for a character can change, this is obviously an illusion (see note below) and I declare Mouse our 3rd place winner.

Congratulations once again (or for the first time as the case may be.)


* Although it appears that Tahnan is in 1st and 2nd place, this is obviously impossible. Everyone knows you can't be in two places at once; that would violate at least two laws of physics. (And maybe Avogadro's Principle, too.)
