Hard to track which stories are hitting the top spots. Although Creature, Boojum, and Love in the PTE seem to be headed for round two.
As someone pointed out, it was a good year for stories here on the drabblecast. (Although I can't recall a bad year for stories around here, but that's neither here nor there nor anywhere else for that matter...)
