My vote is for Super Blue (or, What Keeps On Floating), by @deeanndmathews!

I was totally engrossed by the naturalness and veracity of the prose. It really seems to hear a speech given by the protagonist, an "astrotrasher" who, with his lexical mannerisms and his colloquial register, has unfolded a future but fully plausible world with a very strong internal coherence.
Not just a beautiful science fiction story with solid scientific foundations and a very strong ecological perspective.
Also a masterful example of how one can intelligently and compellingly contravene the "show, don't tell" principle, avoiding the point of view of an all-knowing narrator who only wanted to explain in a didactic manner.
The message is finally very strong and it touches us all very close.

♥♥♥ My vote is for @darthgexe with The Water World ♥♥♥

This story captivated me from the beginning, Thraz fighting only against an alien species that almost completely seized the earth; Thraz product of an experiment that turned out to be the weapon to eliminate its creator. Just imagining Thraz's solitude shook me, yet the story was kind despite his reality, he encounters love in the midst of all this and finally forms a family with the birth of his daughter Amelia. This story took me to the depths of imagination.

Good wishes to all.

@bananafish, Keep up and have a wonderful time ahead. Stay blessed.

This was HARD ... but still, @gaby-crb handled this approach in a way that made me feel like an octopus ... the movement across the sand, the viewpoint of the intelligence of a non-human creature achieving human language, in the face of a situation that man needs Creation to solve for everybody. That man has to look to the beasts to come together to save everybody ... humbling, but handled delicately and beautifully.

My favorite is Liquid Border by marcoriccardi, though it was a really close run with the superb Super Blue. The humor and strangeness made me feel at sea, floating around disoriented with only gleams of sunlight and bursts of bubbles to guide the way.
