  1. This is ridiculous. People aren’t hearting stories they like. They heart stories that authors say they’ll heart back. Plus I thought the contest was concerning the characters Noa and Peter not our individual characters.

  2. I had sumbitted my story yesterday night before 11 O’clock and I still have not seen my story in the entry section. When can I expect my story to be uploaded.
