Okay, I've got some ideas, but I'm so coming back and reading them again before putting in my answers.

Say, can we change answers at any time, SD?

And you can put more names in the name bank than there are samples. That way people can still be confused.

p.s. Do you get a point for picking your own?


Of course. Are you implying here in public that you submitted a writing sample? :rock:

he knows who number 4 and 11 are and he wont tell me! :angry:


Moist excellent.

Does anyway wnat to help me? ;).


Ummmm, no. :devil:

Say, can we change answers at any time, SD?


Sure. As long as you submit before the deadline, I'll accept any number of changes with your most recent PM being the one that counts.

I'm putting it to a vote. Check the new poll thread in a few minutes.

So I'm kinda confused by the tiebreaker. Is the guest author from Nightly?

New Deadline: 11:59pm EST, May 2nd (I know I said an additonal 24 hours but the vote ended early)

Name Bank: There are 14 names below. 10 of them are people who entered the contest and 4 didn't enter, so you are left with one mystery author.

I'm going to use the excuse that since I'm usually I work, I skim through everyone's work. I don't have a chance to focus on it like I would at home. Yeah, I'm going to use that excuse. ;)

This is soooooo much harder than you would think! I'm starting to get down to random guesses, since process of elimination isn't working! And I've changed my mind four or five times already! I KNOW some of my answers make no sense, so I'm really hoping Dex doesn't share who went for what! :shrug:

Which one, Cerina?

I knew #8 pretty much right away. I'm fairly confident on three other ones too.

But another thread on here just helped me figure out #10. I'm also fairly certain of #2 now too.

I revised the formatting in story #8 because I had inadvertently left it all out. It might help you figure out who wrote it, so give it another look now that it is as intended. :P

I can't decide if *Unamed person* Is #7 or number #8 ... really starting to get on my nerves.
Well I have four names on my list so far ... one ^ Keeps moving up a space or down a space everytime I read the entries but thats four names! ... There probably all wrong though.

There seems to be some confusion over the tiebreaker so I'll phrase it another way. Pick a number between 15-90. The closest person to the age wins the tiebreaker if it needs to apply, so it's not like you have to get the age perfect, it's more or less a random thing. But it IS the age of someone who wrote one of these segments so that should help you eliminate some of the numbers in that range.
