First off, let me extend many thanks to RR for posting to let you all know about my continuing tech issues. Next, let me thank all of you for your infinite patience in putting up with said issues. Being trusted to host Prediction is a huge honor for me, and I am so grateful to have such understanding folks here with me.
All right. I'll get right to it.
This week's winner is RRKovar with Modus Operandi: I must agree that "silvered young" is one of my favorite phrases here. I half get the idea that the woman in question has no idea whether she'll become "partner in crime", as it were, or "victim", and that she'd be quite happy either way. I do hope we get to find out exactly what's in that lab, and what becomes of her. Thank you!
And this week's runner up is Antonia Woodville with Infinity (31): This story continues to fascinate. VERY nice use of the prompts this week. I'm very curious as to just what the Captain believes that crew mate is thinking! Thank you!
