Scatterlings and Orphanages

Gratuitous Gloating Post #2

I've won an Award! Lonely on the Mountain got First place (yes, FIRST!) in the 'I Like the Quiet' (just Xander) section of the White Knight Awards. I'm rather stunned, especially as julia_here's superb story 'The Ballad of Ira Hayes' was nominated in the same category. Thanks to everyone who voted for me. And thanks to ludditerobot for coming up with the ficathon that inspired me to write it. Here's the Pretty!

Congratulations to the other winners on my F-list: jgracio, ludditerobot, janedavitt, and several times over to liz_marcs.

They're voted awards rather than judged; I'm also nominated in one other category, the 'Mbuna Fish' award for Xander in Africa stories, and the site has suffered a database error that has caused them to lose all the votes in that category. They are having to redo it; if you would like to vote for me (or indeed for one of the other nominees) the replacement voting form is HERE

I'm also somewhat stunned by the response to the new story that I've begun, 'Life, Resumed'. There have been so many comments that I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to respond to them tonight; there just isn't enough time before I have to leave to go to work. Thanks to everyone; hello to the flood of new friends; I'll reply to comments when I can.
