Here are a few I especially recommend:

fourzoas wrote about the Power of Anonymous. Read it here
hug_machine wrote about the Microsoft Office Mascot. Read it here
intrepia wrote about the new law in Arizona and how it relates to her as an American immigrant.

I wrote a superhero story, if you missed it.
You can peek under the cut to read more entries and to vote for your favorites (of which I hope I am one!) Poll closes at 12pm Saturday. There are only thirty entrants, like I said, and I felt like the vast majority of them were worth reading. Of the people I recced, callistahogan could especially use some votes to stay in the competition. But the voting is getting tighter and tighter. Fifteen of the thirty contestants are within ten votes of last place.
