Lucy in the Sky
There’s a point at which this joke stops being funny and turns sad, and it’s very early in its over two hours runtime.
Well, faithful Molecules fans, it's time for our final batch of endings to Roger's story! For those who are new to the story: Earlier this summer, we invited you to finish a science fiction story Roger was toying with when he passed away. We got dozens of submissions, from light-hearted set-ups for puns Roger would have loved to more serious explorations of the kinds of themes that drew Roger to science fiction in the first place. We passed along the entries to our pal Krishna Bala Shenoi, whose wonderful artwork brought Roger's beginning of the story to life. He's been reading them and creating illustrations as the muse strikes. This is our final batch of endings. Now it's time to start voting! Once we have votes on this final batch of endings, we'll turn over the biggest vote-getters from each week to our panel of experts, who will choose a winner. Of course in our hearts they're all winners for taking up the challenge to finish the story.
We got over two thousand votes in the first six rounds of polling! Our winners so far have been Ariel Gonzales, Jeremy Gable, Andreas Belgun, Sid P, Martin Pitt-Bradley, and last week's winner was Maurie Baker. Once we've published all the endings, we'll bring back the winners from each week's voting for a final round.
