This is how it works- the wiki as a whole votes on the best story for each category. Judges have scored every story and ranked them. If the community vote is close to the scoring that the judges did, the community vote wins out, but if the community vote is super far off from the judges' rankings, the judges' scores overpower it. Voting ends on August 7!
I apologize for this taking so long, but it's finally time for user voting! (psh i probably should've opened this up soon as nominations closed). All you need to do is vote on the story you think is most deserving of the first place spot of the category. You do NOT need to read all the stories to qualify! If you've just read a few, that's okay! The judges are here to do the brunt of the work for you C: Just vote!
