Whooo! All new themes!!
This thread exists so that you, the participants of WOTM, can vote for what theme you'd like us, the WOTM staff, to use next contest. This way, we can only use themes that please as many WOTM participants as possible. The poll is multi-choice, so if you like more than one theme, you're welcome to say so. Also, themes that do not win this vote will likely be given another chance in future polls.

A highly successful roleplay thread of mine that I have made into a fanfiction! It's about a bunch of anime characters coming to life in the real world, and a group of those characters are then found by a trio of otaku girls! And while they're trying to figure out how their fictional little friends got there in the first place, a mysterious group emerges called Operation Anime, whose goal is to wipe out all the characters that exist in the real world!
Link to the story on FanFiction here.
Also be sure to check out the manga based on the fic by OverlordRoo! Link to it here on SmackJeeves.

Thank you Mtntopview and Clirkus for drawing me these...I like this set and think it's fitting.

Why is Time italicized in the poll results and Water and Death are not? Just curious. If it was subliminal it totally worked. I voted for time. Baaa
Did you know we have a Writer of the Month contest? Come join it.
The WOTM #26 Theme Choice thread is up and voting is open through May 20th.
I voted for both time and death. It could be something that can be done together.
I voted for water and time, because death has two vowels that are touching eachother.

[12:59:39 AM] Soapy: He has a gentle voice. Like an ocean wave gently breaking on the sand, or a chorus of angels singing sweet, angelic melodies into your ears.
How come Death was never a theme before? That's weird.. I'll go for that. It should have been a theme long ago. oO
All I ever lead to is chaos.
If, after we have recognized intuitively a number of simple truths, we wish to draw any inference from them, it is useful to run them over in a continuous and uninterrupted act of thought, to reflect upon their relations to one another, and to grasp together distinctly a number of these propositions so far as is possible at the same time. For this is a way of making our knowledge much more certain, and of greatly increasing the power of the mind.
We ought to give the whole of our attention to the most insignificant and most easily mastered facts, and remain a long time in contemplation of them until we are accustomed to behold the truth clearly and distinctly.
The Meditator reasons that he need only find some reason to doubt his present opinions in order to prompt him to seek sturdier foundations for his knowledge. Rather than doubt every one of his opinions individually, he reasons that he might cast them all into doubt if he can doubt the foundations and basic principles upon which his opinions are founded.
I voted for water. We've already have had plenty of death without needing the centerpiece of the thing being death, and time just... um... doesn't attract me. On the other hand, we've already had a "Fire" theme. I am curious what kind of contrast to those entries it would become if we took the water-element now~
