Damn, now i want another chapter lol.
It's a shame you didn't win best writer, i dunno if GTA-King is that good to leave you on the 2nd place with 100+ votes behind.

Those words translate into "Goodbye Old Friend"
It obviously Rami
Oh and Mok, you should right a story that's set 2 years before the events of GTA IV, like a prequel of sorts

Regarding the awards: I am told gtaking PM spammed people asking for votes. In which case he's welcome to his award; ill take second knowing I deserved it and didnt have to ask it. If anyone had received such messages I would hope they would report the offender and this they be D/Q.
It's not surprising, gta v stories will win just because its gta v!
Anyway; thanks for the interest in my work guys. There's times its slow and unnervingly quiet but knowing you all enjoyed it makes it worth it
I hope you'll all follow my next works. In the mean time check out the other stories here and I'd like to see some of yours!!

|How the hell did GTA-King win best writer? I've read both your stories and one of his. I'm not lying, but I liked your writing style much better.|
I am told he sent a lot of private messages out asking for votes. I am not saying it is true, but that's what I have been told.
The way i look at it is that GTA IV is old news. It was the day the V announcement came. People are more interested in GTA V than IV, and his story - his attempted clairvoyance - fits into that niche. People read it because it was in the V section, because it was GTA V. Most of those votes i believe were from the V forum "clans". If it is true that he did send such messages, than he can have his award. I'll proudly take second, and stand with Typhus on the lower podiums, knowing we got there by merit, and not request.
For the record, I don't see myself as the best writer. Perhaps I upload the most, but check out this section - there are many other stories that, while shorter, are from the pen of more talent. In my opinion, the best writer did not win, he came third.
I've read one of GTA king's stories and I would say it's decent. Award worthy? That's not for me to judge but it wasnt perfect (and neither are mine). I read GTA V: albert De Silva, and i got bored quickly. I am not knocking his work - he wrote a lot of it, so fair play - nor am i knocking him (but as said, if he DID ask for the award by sending messages to half the V forum*, he should be disqualified, and the award given to Typhus.
I am however disappointed - which is natural. I am not used to winning things, and the last two times were so surprising, that i kind of got addicted - i can't describe what it's like having people say that my story was the best on the forums for that year. The work that went into it, the doubts, for it all to come to an award, was fantastic. Aceray, in a rather blunt way, pointed out that JIF HAS won one award, and i've had such awards for 2 years, so it's someone else's turn now. I shall instead carry on writing, and hope that I can entertain you all again, and perhaps more people. The only thing i ask - not to vote for me - but to follow my future works, and if any of you write something, feel free to PM me and i'll check it out.
Knowing you've all loved my works means more than a pixelated medal ever could, and I thank you all for that.
