Y'know, this is kind of hard when I have to eliminate over 10% of the options by default...

EP 170- The Monkeys by Chris Monroe
EP 192- Zuzu's Bell by Mur Lafferty
EP 186- Turning to Stone by Steven Saus
EP 195- Menage a trois by Liz Pennies
EP 167- My Wife is a Head of Lettuce.

---

And I'd just like to nod at the radical and awesome job done on "The Work That Must Be Done," which is honestly one of my favorites out of my own works and which was brought to beautiful and cuddly and, above-all, brief life.

Well. This is hard. I think my favourites were:

166- The Work That Must Be Done by Nathan Lee
162- Wall of Gloves by Matt Moore
181- The Wholly Babble Drabble by Dee Brown
176- Parting the Veil by Nathan Lee

Also, I'm quite shocked someone liked mine enough to nominate it, but I am quite pleased, so thank-you :) (Although I don't think it's as good as some of the others up there)
