Regarding my stories, of course different people have different 'keys' to write them. As my stories are meant to be entertaining, my main key is comedy. Of course I also insert a number of serious elements, as well as many references to real life and real people. For example, the character Manius Flavius Salvus is based on a real person, so I reproduced the appearance, the mood, the attitude and even the speech mannerisms of that person. Also, in the story for the Final, a fire engine/fire truck is mentioned at the beginning; this is also modeled on the fire engine I actually drive in real life, Still, the overall aspect of my stories is meant to be comedic. This is why there is a lot of giggling and laughing all the way through.
Regarding the third place, I can announce here that a private 3-lap race, with no cameras and no broadcast, has been run between the two chariots who classified second in their respective Semifinals: namely, Nova Roma, owned by yourself and driven by Dorothea, and Taurus Flammeus, owned by T. Popilia Lænas and driven by Attila, both for Factio Russata. The race was won by a very narrow margin by Taurus Flammeus.
Thanks for appreciating my stories, et optime vale.
