Welcome to voting for the seventh Storyline & Theories contest: Memoirs of the Dead! First, please vote in this poll before voting here. With that out of the way, make sure you read all entries in this category before voting. The voting will close on Thursday April 30, hopefully giving plenty of time to read the entries if you haven't already. [uPDATE: The administration has decided to reduce the amount of time for voting due to little activity since the initial voting. The new deadline is Thursday, March 5.] Note that not every category will have a winner; see the linked poll for details.

I much prefer Entry 2. Ihu's characterization is just as I imagined him, and I like the dynamic between him and Nuju. Entry 1 just doesn't agree with my interpretation of the character.

Two great short stories, certainly my favorite ones of this contest. That was a pleasure to read them, but very difficult to decide beetwen them.
In spite of some differences in plot details and certain interpretations of characters, I find that these two entries are pretty complemental in themselves (what makes the decision of the vote even more difficult =P).

But, after re-reading the only passage of "dialogue" of Ihu in BA6, reflections developed in the first entry definitively fit better with Ihu's moral than those of the second entry, in my opinion.

 

Anyway, a mix of both would have been perfect xP

They do complement each other very, very well. Arrgh I wish they could just merge the best parts of both, but overall, I think the second one was better for its characterisation of Nuju and the world (which felt more involved and alive than the first one). 

 

@ the authors:

Don't worry, guys! I absolutely loved reading both works and they were both very well written. I had such a hard time deciding XD Whatever happens, know that you both came out of this competition having satisfied at least one more bonkle fan!
