Do vote for your favourite Latin tense, merely based on aesthetics and the way in which the tense sounds. I'm quite curious to see whether you like the same as I. :o

I picked imperfect subjuntive. It's the only one in the poll without the vi, but has the r. :)

I chose imperfect indicative, always liked it, no real reason why.

Weird poll... I picked perfect indicative.
