    barsoomcore & NoOneOfConsequence,

    I'm having a REALLY hard time deciding between both of your stories. I've read em 3 times each and I still can't make up my mind. Have the other judges decided yet? I guess the wait is on...

    Sorry for the tease of an update,

    Jay

    Just a FYI, regardless of which ends up happening (re-do of the last round, or the progression to the next).

    I'm going to be at a Con from Friday Night to Monday morning, so I'll be without computer access. If the round has to be run then, I'm happy to forfit in order to keep the event moving.

    Just sent in my judgment. Didn't beat AROUND the bush on this one - I beat the bush and I beat it hard.

    barsoomcore-The first thing I had to think about when I read his story is Samourai Cat
    in the real world , and I love samourai cat! Th surrealistic madness of
    mixed times and concepts! fantastic!

    NoOneofConsequence did add the additional difficulty of continuing his
    earlier entry, but It did n't really work for me. Its a nice story, But
    barsoom core had me laughing out loud on several occasions.

    Barsoomcore for me!

    barsoomcore- this isn't what i expect from a ceramic d.m. entry, and i loved it. the story sounds
    like the working mans complaints to me, and the bit about calling bees cracked me up. "useless stone lanterns" may now just be
    a catchphrase in my little world. entertaining without sacrificing any story elements. i could have kept reading this for pages...

    nooneof consequence- amateurish mercenary sees visions. i personally think no matter what happens in ceramic d.m. this story needs to eb continued in the sh forum. i really like what
    you are doing with this.

    in a close match, i have to go with barsoomcore.

    mirthcard

    I could go on and on about what I like in both of
    these stories, but the real decision comes down to
    what I don't like, so I'm going to focus on that in
    both critiques, making them both shorter than normal.
    I want you both to know that this was a hard decision
    for me because I liked both entries so much. Okay,
    let's begin.

    barsoomcore:

    Your comedic protagonist was at times funny and at
    times annoying. It was hard to stay focused on the
    story of an asian executioner when I kept hearing a
    weird combo of Seinfeld and Shecky (sp?) Green in my
    head. Also, I really can't stand opera or musicals, so
    when you make reference to the Mikado, the score drops
    slightly.

    NoOneOfConsequence:

    Ah, the return of Treffin. I'm not sure if you made
    the right decision bringing him back or not, but
    what's done is done. This story doesn't flow as well
    as the last one and some of the use of the ingredients
    seemed a bit forced. Also, the plot device of having
    Treffin's older self talking to him (whether real or
    hallucinatory) was a little contrived.

    In an almost split decision, I give this round to barsoomcore.


    looks like everyone like noones, story, but the round goes unanimously to barsoomcore!
