First, I would like to thank the writers who provided us with the wonderful stories we've all enjoyed. I personally think each and every one of them is a winner. Great job, everybody!

Second, I thank the nearly eighty people who took the time to comment on the stories and to vote for their favorites. The winners couldn't have been chosen without you!

Third, the lovely laurab1 has ever so graciously created half of the banners I need for the participants - the only thing left to add is the text. Thanks, Laura, you're a live saver!

The voting is now closed. I will be announcing the winners of the contest on Friday, so be sure to check back!

As of today, the voting has been extended until at least Monday, July 17th due to a family medical emergency. I will out of town until Sunday at the earliest, possibly longer, and while I will be taking my laptop with me, I'm not sure I'll have internet access. I apologize for the delay.

Wow, we have SEVENTEEN wonderful Clex stories from sixteen lovely authors. I'm very excited to see such a great turnout, and I want to thank each of the writers participating.


Here are the rules:

a) This is the post where you vote on the stories. All comments are screened so only the mod will be able to see the votes. Please remember that while the authors love receiving feedback, do NOT vote in your comments on individual stories. Only comments on this post will count toward the scoring.

b) Each commenter is allowed one vote for each place: first, second and third. Because of this, anonymous voting will not be allowed. The writers are permitted to vote.

c) Scoring:

1) First place - 5 points
2) Second place - 3 points
3) Third place - 1 point

d) Voting will close at midnight, July 15th. The winners will be announced on July 18th. Also, the authors of each story will be revealed, and their Author's Notes thanking their betas will be added then.

And now, I present for your reading pleasure...
