Yet another nomination!
"The Good, the Bad, and Cordelia" has been nominated in the Queen C category (best Cordelia) at the Lie To Me Awards. I'm pleased, of course; but also feeling rather guilty, and I hope that this flood of nominations isn't as a result of my horribly self-pitying post a couple of days ago.

I've made a few nominations myself this morning, but I'm not going to reveal the details.

Thank you!

Of course it might just mean that I have one really obsessive fan nominating me everywhere.

Wow! You're really raking them in! Yay for you!

(That was a very clever story, too. Nice twist on the wishverse.)

Thank you!

I hope this flood of nominations is because people genuinely think that my fics are worth it, and not attempts to cheer me up because of my horribly self-pitying post a couple of days ago.

The flood of nominations is because you are a damn fine writer. I have nominated your work before (and am responsible for a couple this time too) and will in the future. I always nominate work and writers I enjoy and this time was no different.

Congratulations! I think it is wonderful that more people are being exposed to your great body of work through these awards. I will cheer happily when you win as you so deserve.

Thank you! ::blushes::

But I don't think you need to start practicing your cheers any time soon.

BTW..I nominated Paul for original character. He has, shall we say, presence that goes beyond words (after all he was beloved by everyone from Spike to Xander!) *G*

I am hoping that when you complete AOM you will dust off the muse and return to Pandora's Boxer.

Thanks!

But not by Riley!

I am eager to return to Pandora's Boxer, but it is harder to work on its longer chapters with my current shift pattern. The shorter chaptered fics work best because I can write a whole chapter in one go, and I don't get my train of thought interrupted by a five-day spell of no writing time.
pfeifferpack From: pfeifferpack Date: August 25th, 2005 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
I can understand. I had a crap shift when I was still in Information services...played hell with any creative effort. Seemed like sleep and work became my life. It got that way here last month too but improved finally.

Maybe as you settle in fully to this pattern it will be easier. Meanwhile, I certainly enjoy the other fic's you produce!

Riley....meh...we shall speak of that bully no further pththth... *G*

Don't you like Riley in "Pandora's Boxer"?
pfeifferpack From: pfeifferpack Date: August 25th, 2005 08:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
I just never liked Riley. Oh the actor was good but the on screen bullying just made me hate him! That image just stays I guess.

Aside from staking Spike and luring Sandy to stake her, he was whiney boy because he wasn't getting enough attention from Buffy (when her mom was ill and she was facing an unknown foe that kicked her butt 12 ways from Sunday), used it as an excuse to go to the vamp hos. That endangered all those he claimed to love, had he been turned! Then gave Buffy one day to forgive him and commit to him, leaving her to face Glory and her recovering mom by herself. Selfish bastard! If he loved her as he claimed, he would have picked a better time.


Wooooo bitter much? *G*. Guess I have Riley issues.

You come closest to making me like him in Pandora's Boxer. After all he helped with Harmony and tried to pick the right side at least. I just have *issues*. Tee hee.

Actually the first time that I really hated Xander was when he made that ridiculous pro-Riley speech in "Into The Woods". In-character Xander would have advised Buffy to kick Riley's ass all the way to Belize.
pfeifferpack From: pfeifferpack Date: August 26th, 2005 02:33 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh so true! Funny, every time I hear that speach I talk back to the screen adn tell Xander that the speach was right, just the wrong guy! Things he said fit Spike perfectly...not Riley. Right words, wrong man.

Then again, Buffy's "bubble Buffy" rationale about Parker fit Angel's attitude towards her and not Parker (who never gave her that much thought at all). Just like her cookie speach fit Spike, not Angel because her trouble with Angel was never inability to commit as it was with Spike.

Lots of right words, wrong people when it came to Buffy's love life.

S7 helped me get over my Xander hate. The subtle gestures like the hand on Spike's shoulder in LMPTM and his finally learning to zip his lip with the Spike hate went a long way.

Even if it was a result of the self-pitying post, you totally deserve it. You were simply calling people's attention a known fact. :)
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: August 26th, 2005 10:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks for your kind words.
yangchencen From: yangchencen Date: August 26th, 2005 09:03 am (UTC) (Link)

Congratulations!

And what self-pitying post? Huh? (run off to reread my download files)
I think you totally deserve it! 'cos I lurve your "Good Bad and Queen C" (my version of the fic name when I rec it to my friends), and I don't even like Cordy before your fic! So, why do you feel guity? (Question marks slowly floating up and down, Japanese anime style)
If I know how to paste pics, I'll paste a snoopy-dance for you! ^_^

Re: Congratulations!

Thanks!

So, you're back to where you have Internet access, I see. There's a lot of stuff to catch up on; it will take you a very long time.
