:lol: Very well done Batty, I have to admit Modern Romance was probably my favourite.

Very good indeed, another of my favourites. The high quality and sheer number of this year's entries bodes well for next year (you are doing one eh Pooh?). If it's not too early to ask, seeing as we haven't even had the final yet.

Who knows, they might even let us dirty writers into The Broken Drum next year if we ask nicely and brush our hair. Does anyone actually know why we were kicked out in the first place?

Sore point, stripy! Perhaps next time (if there is one) ... We can but hope! :handgestures-fingerscrossed:

PIP'S BABY IN SHOCK RE-INSTATEMENT SHOCK

Sheesh! :roll:

Just what the hell is wrong with wimmin? :roll: As mad as a bucket of spanners - the whole lot of 'em. :roll:

"I want to win on merit." - Batty.

So to please Miss Stubborn-pants, Pip's Baby is re-instated and there will be a third place play-off. :roll: :roll:

Pip's Baby was written by ME!. It's pants! The rhyming is pants. It was the pants-iest of all my entries. It took 5 minutes to write. Not only did I not vote for it in the qualifying round, I also didn't vote for it in a 1-on-1 match.

I don't want it to be third! I will vote for Modern Romance. :dance:

I'd like to put on record that I never liked and I never voted for Pip's Baby (well I might have once by mistake or because I liked the other ones even less) even though I was practically convinced it was written by Batty.... :shifty: :lol:

Smartypants - I realised yesterday where I went 50% wrong, but only because I thought you really weren't that good at rhyming :angelic-red:

SHOCK VOTING SHOCK

In unprecedented scenes at this year's Writer of 2012 competition, not one, not two, not three, but FOUR people are either voting for the opposing story or abstaining from voting for their own story. :o :o :o

(It actually balances out perfectly, so no story has an advantage. 8-) )
