I was robbed!

HW's story is very funny; it's hard to make a fair comparison between it and "Working my way back to you" as they are so different. It does have the big advantage of being complete, but then again it is shorter than one of your chapters and obviously involved a lot less work.

I haven't read it, it could be brilliant for all I know! Just a general grumble.

I don't really expect WMWBTY to get anywhere at this stage, because I haven't hit the romance of it yet. Romance is where it's at and I'm gen ficcer at heart.

:pets you: On second thought, I've never been nominated for an award unless you count the one I did myself. So :P

You're bound to get nominated for plenty of awards for "Displaced". No doubt about it. And you're definitely in with a shout for the the Giles month in 12monthsofbtvs.
appomattoxco From: appomattoxco Date: June 16th, 2005 08:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
I wasn't fishing only kidding around.

I don't think the fics I put up at 12mothsof BtVS will get anything. This is Giles month and my Anya is much stronger.

As for Displaced I've writen 4 versions of the next chapter and they've all stalled at about 500 words. Now I've resorted to trying to the versions together.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker -- and you have no reason to feel disappointed. After all, you've been winning everything lately.


Is work letting up for you at all?

?? Do you know something I don't?
mommanerd From: mommanerd Date: June 16th, 2005 09:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Now you've got me digging around the various awards sites, just to prove my assertion. The problem is that you've won on the sites where I didn't get anything, so I don't have those links.

As far as I know the only award I have ever won was the Fuzzy Bunny Slipper Award for "Everything Stops For Tea" at the Bedtime Story Awards.

If I've won anything else then the notification never reached me. I've had hordes of nominations, yes, and an occasional runner-up, but not wins.

I did think that "Savage Beauty" was in with a good chance. I hadn't noticed Nauti's nomination (big oops!) and I thought that the Humorous/Fluff category would be a straight fight between me and you.

The Primordial Souls Awards announcements have just come out and I didn't win anything there either.
mommanerd From: mommanerd Date: June 16th, 2005 11:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Runner ups are great. Mine today was a runner up -- and the fact that I lost to Nautibitz makes it totally okay.

I have to confess that I was hoping she'd get the PWP awards and leave us to duke it out over this category. I would have felt just as thrilled to have lost to you - and I'm sincere about that.

Once Savage Beauty is complete I think you'll win a lot of things. WiPs are often overlooked until they're done. I get around that by only writing short stuff! (Okay, that last part was totally insincere, and I only write short stuff because I'm way to lazy to plot out a big story.)

Thank you for the congrats. :)

You're welcome.

Looking at your icon it struck me that, in the Star Wars prequels, having the average height Hayden Christensen play Anakin Skywalker and then don the original Darth Vader suit (as worn by the extremely tall Dave Prowse) is extremely reminiscent of the tiny Rick Moranis playing the evil Dark Helmet in "Spaceballs".

Thank you - am a bit overwhelmed by it all!

I'm not sure what's wrong with the judges for these sites, because you certainly deserve many kudos and awards. These days, I'm a bit surprised when I win with some of the *ahem* stuff that gets nominated.

I think we should start our own awards site, where all entries are screened for excellence. Then we could be sure of deserving fics (like yours) winning on a regular basis.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: June 17th, 2005 07:38 am (UTC) (Link)
There can't be anything wrong with the Love's Last Glimpse Awards - you won most of them!

There's nothing wrong with Vampire Kisses either - you've won there in the past, and I've had runner-up awards (usually to you!) - and Mandi (vampkiss) is lovely.

(I'm not saying that Eurydice at LLG isn't lovely, it's just that I've never had any contact with her; our paths have never crossed)

I don't resent not winning; I'm just disappointed because I genuinely thought that I was in with an extremely high chance of winning something this time.
enigmaticblues From: enigmaticblues Date: June 17th, 2005 01:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, Mandi and Eurydice are both great, and I think LLGA is one of the best awards sites out there. I just think you should win more. I've read some of the stuff that does win on occasion, and it's...interesting.

BTW, I re-read what you have for "Life in Shadow" last night. I really do love that fic, even if it's unfinished. :)

Is that a hint? Don't worry, I am definitely going to finish it. It's just that at the moment I am obsessed by Willow and I won't be able to give other pairings my proper attention until Spike and Willow have reached the end of "Angel of the Morning".
enigmaticblues From: enigmaticblues Date: June 17th, 2005 10:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
I understand. It wasn't really supposed to be a hint, although I'm glad to hear that you are going to finish it. I'm actually thinking of doing Spillow for summer_of_spike. I've got a glimmer of an idea...
spikereader From: spikereader Date: June 17th, 2005 11:40 am (UTC) (Link)
It's not the winning, but the taking part; you're all winners in my book; better luck next time ....

I'm sure I can can come up with some more trite cliches to make you feel better if I think hard enough. *pets S2C* Dang awards - do away with them all.
karinalee From: karinalee Date: June 17th, 2005 08:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you for the birthday wishes, StC. *hugs*

Congrats to all the winners! Especially nandibble.
