*GASP* I'm getting a page posted ahead of time again! Yup, we're DEFINITELY getting close to a convention weekend... which ironically means I'm not sure if there'll be a fresh Voting Incentive up when you read this. I mean, I'm planning on doing one, obviously, but since this page will be going live automatically, there's a pretty good chance that I could still be fiddling with the Incentive when it happens. I am sadly out of practice with this whole "being ahead of schedule" thing.

But anyway, MAN I like how that whole "shards floating beyond the frame" effect turned out, especially for something that was thrown in at the last minute.

Also, part of me wants to ask how a vacuum cleaner is supposed to work in the VACUUM of space... but really, that's the LEAST odd thing about this setup.

EDIT: OKAY! Voting Incentive is up!

EDIT EDIT: ...um, okay. NOW it's up. Sorry, something went wrong with the settings, but it really is up this time. (see what happens when I deviate from my pattern of being extremely late?)

@ Blitz: Remember, he's vacuuming up the "fragments of reality as we know it". If something that could suck those up worked on air pressure, I would be surprised. Honestly, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Vacuum's have stopped utilizing a "Vacuum" at all in this story, but kept the name because changing it was either too much of a hassle, pointless, confusing or the new name was never utilized (be it because the name was inconvenient, the old name was more convenient, or because the new name was trademarked) and thus practically everyone forgot about the "true" name of what ever the actual name of that device is and instead just calls it a Vacuum Cleaner.

No, see, it's not called a "vacuum cleaner" because it uses vacuum pressure to clean, It's called that because it cleans vacuum!

Hmmm... on the one hand, I appreciate how well though out Option A is. On the other hand, Option B is pretty dang funny.

@ Blitz: You do realise that Option A & Option B are not mutually exclusive, right? Everything about Option A could be true for planetary-based vacuum cleaners, while Option B could be true for pace based vacuum cleaners.

Also, with my suggestions, they tend not to be as deeply and/or well thought out as they appear to be. I make mental leaps to possible explanations like that easily, and, in exchange, miss out on important social clues from others and myself (I can miss other's boredom and I can miss my own irritation growing. Honestly, it's an unfair trade, as I feel the social loss far outweighs the "advantage" that causes me to be able to make overly verbose internet posts on unimportant topics).

@ Incentive: That was a foolish thing to do. She was distracted, and probably wouldn't have restarted the fight due to the distraction.
