    Beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure, and are awed,
    because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
    - Rainer Maria Rilke, "Elegy I"

    I see it's still set for 2 choices but only allows one. I'll check with the man behind the curtain.

    "When a child is abused, he or she will often internalise that abuse as deserved. It is a cruel reality that a child needs the parent so much, is evolutionarily programmed to trust them so implicitly, that when a parent is abusive the child will take the blame rather than completely upend their world and blame the person they depend on for survival." -velo

    Multiple choice polls are working correctly when we test them. Do you want to delete and repost?

    I was able to vote only for one.
    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    I wish it wasn't top 5. As I now have some good ideas for both urban fairytale and POV of an incurable disease/condition. But they are two different stories. Any chance of marking one prompt for October and one for November?
    I threw a glance at humankind and saw them treacherous and feeble.
    Severe judges, cruel, unkind and fools who are always close to evil.
    Before their frightful, anxious mob, indifferent hate forever rages.
    Not learnt the lessons from the ages!
    What use are wise and tempered words?

    You can always suggest the one you don't do for next month, or any other month.
