There are always a few that make it I'm quite surprised at. A few stories I couldn't even remember and frankly one I wish I could forget* made it in. I'm always enlightened that sleepers made it over something like Angel, which I listened to over and over and over and got great feedback. Then again, I've never picked the yearly winner, so...

Interesting; ahilton and I picked the same 3 low-scoring stories (and, of course, Mongoose, which, like Roman roads, goes without saying...)

Geez, do your homework, Moonowl. The solution is obvious. Just cue-up "Black Smut" on your iPod and turn on "Repeat."

Problem solved. ;-)

I was the Black Smut fangirl back in the grunge days. Awesome!

Now the Jelly song? I bop around and sing that all the time. Loves it.

Angel of the Ordinary didn't make it to the top 10? You all suck! :lol:

Indeed. I would have put The Fantasy Jumper and Go Beep waaaaaay down my list, but there they are in the top 5.

On a related note millions of people went to watch Avatar multiple times. I don't get that either. Not seeing the same film multiple times, just Avatar. Have these people seen Dances with Wolves?

Go Beep was cute, don't get me wrong. But Angel made me laugh hysterically and cry all at once.
No offense but I had to listen to Jumper for like 5 minutes before I remembered it. Usually I recall most the stories and almost always after then after the two sentence episode descriptions. Good story but...I didn't remember it and it wasn't that long ago...

I think what sold Go Beep were the songs accompanying it. I agree with you, Moonwowl, it was cute but in an easily forgetful way. The thing that stuck out for me in that ep was the end song, not the story.
