The threshold has been sealed! Those unlucky enough to be trapped inside (i.e., the authors) must now deliberate and vote for their favorite entries. We'll reveal the door hiding the winner once the threshold to December 14th is crossed.
Dave (#9) is the final entry. Any late-comers can stay outside and (depending on their climate) freeze to death!
Anybody who wants to win needs to list their Top 3, in order of preference.
