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.

Entry #1 -- Teacher by Tikiturbo

I prefered Entry #1. No offence to whoever wrote the second one, but I thought it felt rather bland.

The crucial flaw with Entry 2 is that it disobeys an unwritten rule of storytelling: "show, don't tell". Entry 2's account of events is dry and dwells on actions and facts, rather than the thoughts and feelings of the characters, as Entry 1 does.

 

Although Jovan turned out not to be dead after all, I wouldn't object to canonizing Entry 1. It gives him both an actual in-person appearance and some interesting characterization. And who could say no to a bit more action on Voya Nui?
