    Check the first post date; I started The Celestial Bureaucracy on March 06, 2011.
    I've got it memorized caused I keep going back to the first post to add new chapters to the Table of Contents.

    I'm going to revoke my vote for The American Dream under History Book stories. No offense to Tlönitte, his game was very well played and masterful but this is the Stories & Tales forum. I didn't know what to peg An Iberian Love Story under (it's listed as Descriptive in the database) so I'm switching my vote for Alexius08's story now that a precedent seems to have been established. The latter story actually has a theme and a couple additional elements that make it stand out in comparison.

    -Mali on Earth 18 Civs (Brandon Herren) ...It was a tough choice between other BH's earth18 stories.
    -Rome: Eternal Empire (Mety) It was a hard pick between this one and olaf's 6050yrs and Yoshi's destruction2. In the end i simply read much more from Eternal empire, sry Olaf and yoshi :(
    -Babylonian Idol : (me) Because everyone else so far voted for their own stories :lol:

    Narrative:
    Hammer & Steel by Tycho
    will be thinking of more later...

    History book:
    No Cities Left Behind (The Super Secret History of the Mongols) ( Tigranes ) Really like this one, hope to get some updates soon!!

    Comedy
    Glory to Greece: All Trade Leads to Athens by Dhoomstriker
    Let's Crack Some Heads! by Lead Paint
    Babylonian Idol by MaxWar

    I'd love to nominate more than three for this category, since I think each and every comedy story we've had this year has been an absolute gem. Notable stories I'd like to have been able to have nominated: DoH2, anything by brandon.herren, MOARcat, RandomLand!, China: All Under Heaven, Rome: Eternal Empire, and my own 6,050 Years of course ;)

    Narrative
    The Celestial Bureaucracy by Tomorrow's Dawn
    Hammer and Steel by Tycho
    The Mars Chronicles by SouthernKing

    Some extremely good pieces of writing poked up their heads this year along with some very good writers. These three were the ones that I thought particularly stood out.

    History-Book
    An Iberian Love Story by Alexius08
    The Super Secret History of the Mongols by Tigranes
    Rome: The Comquering Empire by Tycho

    Some excellent work in this field too, and I think Vokarya also deserves a special mention, as well as Gruekiller, Tlonitte and Trexeric.
    ________

    All in all, an excellent year's stories. Here's to 2012.
