Query Kombat 2018 Round 2 Instructions

Here we go! Round 2!

Entries are on my blog and Michelle's! This round lasts until June 16th at 8 pm EDT.

On Saturday the hosts may call out for extra judges to come and break ties, or in case of extra close votes to try and get a more decisive margin.

The entry with the most votes for Victory moves forward to the third round on June 19th! Winners may send in a revised entry to the Query Kombat email by Monday, June 18 at noon EDT. Use the same format as the previous times. Kombatants will not have any more chances to revise for the rest of the contest.

Reminders for the Entrants:
No commenting on your own entries until the last day of the round. If there is a problem with your entry, shout out to us on Twitter or e-mail as soon as you can. Also, we tried our hardest to make the match-ups as fair as possible and against as similar stories as possible. But, obviously, this is impossible to do perfectly and some match-ups may seen very random. We apologize for this but it's an evil of the system.
Kombatants should comment on 4 other match-ups to help share the love around!

Reminders for the Judges:
Wait until after one of us hosts comments on each entry first and reply to that comment to cast your votes. Try making your votes objective instead of subjective (but if you really love an entry subjectively, don't even feel bad about saying it was a subjective vote - subjectivity rules!). Make sure to post under your nicknames! I still have comment moderation on, so if you forget to use your nickname or reply in the judge thread we can fix it. Just send me an e-mail or DM.
