I've been Nominated again
I've been nominated in the White Knight Awards for Xander-centric fanfic! "Lonely on the Mountain" is nominated for the "Mbuna Fish" Award for Xander in Africa fics, and for the "I Like the Quiet" award for just Xander, no pairing fics.

Not that I'll win - I'm up against liz_marcs in the first category and against julia_here's sublime story "Ballad of Ira Hayes" in the second - but it's lovely to be nominated Thanks to whoever nominated me - and that's probably somebody on my F-list because the link leads to the story on my LiveJournal rather than to the archived story at "I Need A Parrot".

No "Tabula Avatar" today due to work, sleep, etc, but I have made a start on the next chapter and it is just possible that I might get it done for tomorrow.

Congratulations on the nomination - very well deserved.

And what a beautiful banner I found on coming in through the door.

Thank you!

You've been away from my LJ a long time - myfeetshowit made the banner for me on the 6th of February.

Don't sell yourself short on "Lonely on the Mountain."

I was going to nominate it myself and someone beat me to it. That's a damn good story that met all the requirements to the Africander challenge and, personally, I'm torn between yours, Yin's story, and the person I did end up nominating nominate for the "deserves to win" sweepstakes.

Thank you!

Oh, I know that "Lonely on the Mountain" is good, I don't go in for false modesty, but, well, you and aeneas_fic in one category, julia_here in the other!

It's funny how tastes can differ. You obviously rate "Never Ending Gardens" highly but I didn't think that it was anythihng special. Competently written but that's all.

I nominated aeneas_fic when I didn't see her name crop up in the Africander category. And, like I said, someone already beat me to nominating you for Lonely in the Africander category.

I don't normally vote/norminate in awards (*hangs head* YES! I know, I know. *hangs head*), but I really think there are better stories than Contrite Spirits in that category and either you or Aeneas really deserves to win that one.

congratulations! I haven't read the fic, but I have it bookmarked to start ASAP some of the current WIPs I'm reading finish. Honestly, knowing your writing style and having read most of what you've written, if not all of it, I sincerely hope you win; I'm very sure it's a fantastic fic!! good luck.

Congratulations on the nomination; "Lonely on the Mountain" certainly deserves it.

(Sadly, I'm far behind in reading "Tabula Avatar" - I think I've read through part 9. I've been printing out parts to read at home, though, and hope I can catch up this weekend.)
