Poll: Biggest Poll Ever Created By Humans. Pick one under each screenname. (16 member(s) have cast votes)

Antilla

  1. Whenever she was around, Monday typically lost his bearings. Tripping over innocuous cracks in the pavement. Falling flat like an ill conceived simile. (5 votes [31.25%])

    Percentage of vote: 31.25%

  2. I'm the man behind the branding of those "Dignity" adult diapers your grandparents are ashamed to admit they buy. Secretly my firm had to know I was single-handedly perpetrating the biggest joke on geriatrics ever. "Oh dear," sagging old men everywhere must have said, "I've just used up my last bit of Dignity® ... and it's only Tuesday..." (3 votes [18.75%])

    Percentage of vote: 18.75%

  3. Under the black tendril branches of the orchard canopy, he nurses at the blunt between his fingers before passing it to his companion. Spheres of rotten Golden Delicious litter the ground around them. "Technically speaking," he says as he plucks a piece of rancid fruit from one of the dead limbs, "Johnny Appleseed was America's first pot-head." (3 votes [18.75%])

    Percentage of vote: 18.75%

  4. Ever try to sue a koala? Good luck with that. Five years of litigation and all I've ever been awarded is a bag of partially chewed eucalyptus. (1 votes [6.25%])

  1. "Pull yourself together," Emma thought as she pulled on her dingy coat and mismatched gloves. "How are you supposed to find food for baby David if you spend all morning sleeping? After all, you're six years old now and you're all he's got." (4 votes [25.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 25.00%

  2. Today is supposed to be the best day of my life, but now, even hours later, all I can see is the rain spattering on the sign: FLORIDA STATE PENITENTIARY. I used my phone call to leave a message for my mom, but it's only a matter of time before my bride-to-be finds out. She's going to kill me. (12 votes [75.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 75.00%

Copper

  1. Tap tap tap tappity tap tap clash, “YOU NEVER LISTEN TO ME!” Tap tap tap tappity tap tap squish. The drumstick had become such an accustomed extension of his hand that when he thrust it up through the roof of her perennially open mouth his only worry was that it might break. (1 votes [6.25%])

    Percentage of vote: 6.25%

  2. Lola cackled around an excessively phallic cigar as she jammed down the hill on pink roller skates with the straps of her twin thigh holsters chafing the smooth skin beneath them. Papi, the feces flinging monkey on her back, giggled and bombarded their pursuers with last nights Taco Bell as Lola used her flame thrower to light her victory cigar. She leaned into a turn and left only a miasma of cherries, poop and scorched eyebrow hair for their tail to stew in. (3 votes [18.75%])

    Percentage of vote: 18.75%

  3. “I will go Dutch Schultz all over your Billy Bathgate if you don’t bring me the numbers and throw them up into the air until they turn into letters. Dutch Schultz.” (4 votes [25.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 25.00%

  4. A fat gold band nearly completely covered in a forest of knuckle hair flashed in the sunlight as sausage fingers after sausage finger plopped onto the rusted roof of a Buick Le Sabre. The wench was late and he was hungry. (8 votes [50.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 6.25%

  2. Feeling the pull of the kaleidoscope of light and howling wind, he called to her, "Follow me!" Placing her hands over her heart, she shook her head, shouting, "I'm scared." Darkness fell as the sniper's bullet rang out. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  3. Awaiting their execution by firing squad, Anna slapped Jake with her handcuffs muttering, "It's your ****ing fault we got caught." Dropping down on one knee, Jake pleaded, "Marry me Anna." "Marry me and live, Anna, or marry Jake and die," boomed a male voice from the speakers above them. (8 votes [50.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 50.00%

  4. Death stalked me. The swing of the scythe just a hairbreadth from decapitating me. Unfortunately, Death never saw his own death -- by his own scythe. (1 votes [6.25%])

    Percentage of vote: 6.25%

  5. "Charlie's motto is 'Live, grow stronger, let Prozac, Abilify, Sominex, Prilosec, Aricept and Viagra take care of the rest, especially the Viagra.' As Karen mixed the powered drug cocktail into his red wine, she murmured, "You forgot the nitroglycerin, but I didn't." (1 votes [6.25%])

Nixie

  1. Each snowflake that fell on Lisa's openly staring and freshly dead eyes took approximately 2 minutes to melt. This process was an unintentional but fitting commentary on her now finished life. (6 votes [37.50%])

    Percentage of vote: 37.50%

  2. Their first look lasted one full breath, their first kiss lasted one full heartbeat, but their first argument lasted the rest of their lives. Harold and Eloise's relationship could be summed up suchly. (10 votes [62.50%])

    Percentage of vote: 62.50%

Richcelt

  1. Last week the paper read: "Definitive proof dragons existed!" They'd found bones as evidence. This week's headline read: "'Dragon' a hoax!" The fossils were of a Pteranodon and an Apatosaurus on top of each other. Ken could only laugh. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  2. The Hadrian floated into the docking station as the hanger doors closed. There was extensive damage to the hull; parts of the ship had been exposed to the vacuum of space. The opening salvos of the civil war had been fired. (2 votes [12.50%])

    Percentage of vote: 12.50%

  3. "Operation: Market Garden" was aptly named, ironically; it was a meat market, and a future flower garden "watered" by the blood of many soldiers. (3 votes [18.75%])

    Percentage of vote: 18.75%

  4. The first thing Professor Simmons did upon entering the room was to lay on his back on the floor, look up at the acoustic tiles above us, and ask, "Ever wonder why the sky is blue?" (1 votes [6.25%])

    Percentage of vote: 6.25%

  5. Samantha Reynolds was an okay enough person, so long as you didn't mind her non sequiturs. If you were having a conversation about the TV show you watched last night, she'd say something about how her goat got stuck in the fence. (4 votes [25.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  9. Frank Sinatra had killed men before, had killed women before, but there was a first time for everything and so the hermaphrodite god of an ancient chthonic civilization formed long before humanity's rise now lay dead on the carpet and it was by his hand. (2 votes [12.50%])

Okay, first thing you need to know is that diarrhea is still the best way to avoid rape so it's all about stealing mayo from kitchen, leaving it under a hot light for twelve hours, and then downing it.

Svenn

  1. Y'all ought to know by now that love ain't real, least not the kind those bull**** writers write about in stories. Kind of like how a worried old man'll hear about a friend having a heart attack, and then imagine pains in his own chest for the rest of the day, fools read that crap and start thinking, "hey, I feel that way too." (3 votes [18.75%])

    Percentage of vote: 18.75%

  2. He was a wirey young fellow in a three-piece suit, with a jubilant demeanor and a two-time step that made even the least destitute inhabitants of the Shantytown uncomfortable, much in the same way that the first green shoots of a mild spring day emphasize the uselessness of last fall's remaining dead leaves. (8 votes [50.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 50.00%

  3. Bob finished his breakfast alone, wondering if anybody thought of him as normal. What the hell was normal anyway?

(5 votes [31.25%])

    Percentage of vote: 31.25%

Tank

  1. The cocaine had been snorted and the hooker was crying and this is when my cousin chose to let me in on his deepest secret, which involved the soft plush of childhood blankies and pieces of his own anatomy that were no longer viscerally connected. (2 votes [12.50%])

    Percentage of vote: 12.50%

  2. He drove San Fernando in darkness, at an hour so late that he shared the road with only city service vehicles and cops, which of course led to driving well below the speeds he preferred. He drove so slow that he couldn’t outrace the partial melancholies and dot-to-dot failures tied to the rear of his car like tin cans on a wedding limo. (3 votes [18.75%])

    Percentage of vote: 18.75%

  3. He fumbles with his turgid manhood, scrambling to tuck it back inside his gabardine trousers… but it is too late. A school bus full of nuns has already exploded. (4 votes [25.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  5. He was born under omens, both good and bad. The caul was considered a curse by those in his sect, both familial and merely connected through interest. But he had emerged, wide-eyed and silent, from his mother's womb on a Friday, which his father thought to bee a portent of good things to come. At least for the weekend. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  6. As his miniature train set ran at full tilt, with both hands on the throttle, he couldn't decide which need the most adjusting: his cowboy hat, the cigar in his mouth, or his scrotum-- which had grown sticky with sweat and stuck to the inside of his thigh. (1 votes [6.25%])

    Percentage of vote: 6.25%

  7. He first experienced derision in the form of a jagged twist of metal in his left foot. He tossed aside carelessly only to be toppled by it again 30 years later. (0 votes [0.00%])

  8. All his best friends failed him like high school poetry. (3 votes [18.75%])

  11. The noose hangs from a rafter, inches from a photograph of her mother, like some sort of umbilical joke. (1 votes [6.25%])

    Percentage of vote: 6.25%

  12. When he wasn't obsessing over his own death, his mind often wandered back to his childhood home; the smell of old motor oil and the image of the cracked drive which led to his father's garage sanctuary. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  13. The estuary lay in ruin, a victim of teenage angst and petrol. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  14. A riot had been incited, through her fault, but she wasn't sure how exactly. She'd only asked for a coat hanger-- a standard query from one who'd locked their keys in their car. What she wasn't aware of, was where her car was parked, and what sort of office she'd walked into to make her request. The abortion clinic would have preferred she'd called AAA. (2 votes [12.50%])

    Percentage of vote: 12.50%

Undome Telcontar

  1. I thought it had ended, but no; that imperfect cadence drew me back. Back into a wretched symphony of lives broken and dreams crushed beneath broken brickwork and flickering neon. (0 votes [0.00%])

    Percentage of vote: 0.00%

  2. Just once, he thought bitterly, as he pulled a tin of baked beans out of the cupboard and flicked through the bread for a slice without green on. Just once, i'd like to think of a comeback to that bitch the same goddamn week. (9 votes [56.25%])

    Percentage of vote: 56.25%

  3. He stood alone at the edge of the world, and gazed out into vast nothingness. Could steal inside a man's mind, that empty black; take his soul, reduce him to madness or worse. But he was no longer mere man. (2 votes [12.50%])

    Percentage of vote: 12.50%

  4. "It's alright! I'm here for you. Just hold on, I can't hurry this!" (2 votes [12.50%])

    Percentage of vote: 12.50%

  5. Two huge dark eyes stared adoringly up at me, the last of her tears silently merging with the rivulets of blood running from her hairline, and dripping down on to the pale bluish swell of her right breast, as beautiful as the rest of her. As I gazed down in wonder, I could hardly believe she had finally reached fifteen today; it seemed only yesterday I had held her in my arms, tiny and so fragile, in the delivery room. Now she'd always be fifteen, always my little girl, she could stay protected from the horrors of the world in this room, here with me. (3 votes [18.75%])

If you thought that vote was tedious, imagine having to make the poll.

The thing is, we need to condense these entries down a bit. So. Vote for a single favorite in each batch of entries. If you don't see your name here, assume I hate you. Or assume that you had just one submission, and so your only gifted child will be automatically kicked through to round two. It's one or the other.

I decided to put this poll here, rather than the main Book Club forum, because I've always disliked how all the entries from past contests are in the Amphitheatre - yet to find out who won each vote you hafta dig up the corresponding Book Club post. And it can be difficult.

I'm thinking of keeping this vote open until Wednesday. A full three day tour. By then the winners should be apparent and we can move on to the real deal. We'll see.

No. This is just to narrow things down to one entry per person. That one entry will then be thrown in the mix with everyone else's to be categorized and voted upon. I would have made a huge poll with the categories and stuff to start with, but I felt like there would be too many entries for the number of votes that will be cast - and we would end up with a 7 way two-vote-each tie for first. This will be better. I think.

Have I ever mentioned that you're my hero, Antilla?


That's why I get paid the big bucks. I DO GET PAID, RIGHT?

Yeah, extra kudos for compiling all of that.

Having it listed that way made it easier for me to compare. For me, I looked at all of those lines and picked the ones I thought were the best opening lines. There were others amongst them that were better lines over all, but to me sounded like they'd be better in the middle of a story (maybe a chapter beginning) rather than the first line of a story. So I tended to vote for those. That's my thinking anyways. As Six famously says, "your mileage may vary".

And I'm just as guilty of it. I look back over the ones I wrote and realize that some are better elsewhere. It just illustrates how hard an opening line is.

I am still laughing over the line "Silence is a virtue after bad sex." And I didn't even vote for it because I like the firing squad opening better! But that's funny.

Honestly, I couldn't think of a second line after that one because I was laughing too hard. There's two TV characters I can see saying that line: Richard Castle and Fox Mulder. Deadpan delivery upon seeing the murder scene.

I still need to finish reading all the entries and give feedback, so it'll probably be tomorrow before I vote.

If you don't see your name here, assume I hate you.

I've thought about it a lot, and have decided that I hate you back.

The Nixie, Copper, and Shadowdog ties are all unexpected and fascinating. For instance the feeling I got from replies was that Nixie's second entry was the clear favorite. Fascinating.

That was probably the most difficult contest vote ever for me.

agreed. and tedious, though nothing compared to the everest-like task of assembling it.

Voting accomplished! I can't even fathom what it would have been like to select by categories in the first poll as well. I pronounce this solution a genius move.



Antilla, your check is in the mail. (Please disregard the fact that I do not have your address. It will make it there if you're meant to get it. Also, I hope you have an ID that says "Antilla.")

If the vote can stay open until about 10pm EST tonight, Nixie will get a chance to vote.

Voting = accomplished.
Commenting = accomplished.


Patting myself on the back = not accomplished due to lack of time.

You only had one entry in at the time of the deadline so that's the one that will move on to voting round 2.


As a consolation prize for all your hard work on the others you can choose between a paperclip and a thumbtack. Choose wisely.
