    My picks:

    1. "Mrs. Todd's Shortcut"
    2. "The Raft"

    P.S. I am quite disappointed in the Bracket Champions, to be honest. All of my favorite stories ("Last Rung On The Ladder", "Survivor Type", "A Very Tight Place", "The Monkey", etc etc) are gone, and I am sad.

    P.P.S. Holy shit Jean, that was fast! lol

    bears are the fastest animals alive

    and all my favorite stories are gone too. All That You Love; Lunch at the Gotham Cafe; Popsy; That Feeling; The Ballad; Crouch End; Suffer the Little Children... Can't remember if Boogeyman is still standing (lost track of the rounds somewhere)

    Raft, and don't give a crap bout the other one. Don't know how we got here with these. Survivor type, suffer the little children, gramma. Many others. All better than these finalists with the exception of the raft. IMnotsoHO.
