A 1
B 2
C 2
D 2
E 1
F 1
G 1
H 2

For the record, I expect the time travel one to win, but think Bedtime is the best by far, followed by Bang. None of these are mine - I've got only one in still from the three that qualified.

As this is now a knockout competition, if scores are level at the end of normal time there will be a pk shootout. :dance:

With less than 24 hours to go, due to voter apathy it would appear (barring a miracle) that the following stories have qualified for the quarter finals;

Pip's Baby
Hard Decisions
Politics
Untitled
Stories Fade
:clap: :clap: :clap:

However, the following matches remain tied;

Slayer v AEIOU
4th Crusade v No title
Modern Romance v Bang
:shock: :shock:

If at 10:00pm (UK time) Feb 22 the stories remain tied, there will be sudden death play-offs. :dance:

Fine then. I'll vote. Didn't see the point with my stories voted out... :(
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

QUARTER FINAL DRAW

I've already sent some stories with numbers assigned to each, to Jano.

Can somebody (anybody) choose 2 numbers between 1-4, please? :dance: :dance:
