Congratulations to everyone nominated, and, of course, to all our winners! It was a close race in so many of the awards this year. There were a number of ties, and also many winning by a single vote! We had so many good stories this year, though, and I think we were all torn on at least a few of them. But without further ado...

Winners Banners under the cut..with a special surprise award... )

And thank you everyone for nominating, voting and most of all for all the wonderful stories you've shared with us over the past year and will continue to write and share with us throughout the next. ^__^




And now for something completely different! I got a bit of concrit concerning the story list this year in that it doesn't include genres, which made things like finding a specifically funny or angsty story difficult. So we're going to be adding genre tags to go along with those we already have.

propsed tags and little more info under the cut )

Thank you again, everyone! And if you spot any mistakes, please let me now, and I'll be sure to fix them right away! ^_^

I'm changing the end date of the nominations polls to midnight PMT on Tuesday, the 25th, so get your nominations in by then!

I know it's both time consuming and difficult to nominate, and I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to do so. ^___^ Remember, it's not imperative that you fill out every single category, so if that's holding you back, don't let it worry you. Just do as much as you can. Thanks in advance, everyone!

Also, here's the FIC REC POST. If you're having trouble coming up with a nomination for a particular category, maybe you could comment asking for suggestions. Most frustrating fade to black is proving rather...frustrating...for me, personally. ^_^

2010 WL_FANFICTION AWARDS NOMINATIONS

Nominations will be up until Tuesday, January 25th. You will have until then to nominate your favorite stories for all awards, after which sorting will take place and proper voting will begin. Please try your very best to nominate a story for every award. It is not required that you do so, however we are a small fandom, and the more participation, the better!

The nominations are set up thusly: There are 5 categories to be considered: genre awards, characterization awards, specifics awards, specialized awards and the overall best award. Each of these will have a separate poll so you can do them at your leisure and not feel the pressure of having to do them all at once.

Polls FAQ:
• Please fill out ALL your nominations in a poll before hitting "submit." When you hit "submit" it will only count the votes for that specific poll.
• When nominating, please state the title of the story AND the author in case there are stories with the same/similar titles.
Please do not nominate yourself. Self-nominations will not be counted.
• Yes, you can nominate a story for multiple categories.
• The polls are text entry, and the answers will only be visible to me. If you'd rather not fill out the polls, you can also feel free to PM or email me with your nominations.

As a refresher, again, HERE'S THE LIST OF THIS YEAR'S ELIGIBLE STORIES. Please take the time to read as much as you can!

[Poll #1669320]


[Poll #1669321]


[Poll #1669322]


[Poll #1669323]


[Poll #1669324]


*Neither "threesome" nor "first time" need to specifically refer to a sexual act. Other interpretations are welcome.

**In regards to 'less popular pairings,' this refers to any instance where a pairing has shown up less than 10 times in the past year, and therefore precludes Ryan/Colin, Greg/Jeff, Ryan/Greg, Ryan/Brad, Greg/Colin, or Threesomes--which have their own category.

***To accommodate the removal of other categories,this is not strictly limited to "players." It can refer to players, wives, OCs, etc.


Any questions/comments/concerns, please leave a comment or PM me. :) And let the nominations begin! :D

Hey all! ^_^

Next Monday nominations will begin in earnest, but for now, I'm here to poke everyone and ask have you been reading...? ^__^ For those of us who fell behind on our reading, it can be quite overwhelming. Believe me, I'm right there with you. Sometimes I don't even know where to begin. So in an attempt to help each other out, let's have a BIG OLD RECCOMENDATION POST!

Is there a story you read this past year that you absolutely loved? One you kept coming back to or maybe just recently discovered that is an absolute must read? Maybe there's a story with a pithy amount of comments that you don't understand why more people didn't find and gush over? Tell us!

Share with us the stories that it would be an absolute crime for us not to peruse before nominations begin. It's a great way to get some lesser known stories a little recognition and it would make a good starting point for anyone doing catch up reading.

But don't just give us an author and title; tell us why you loved these story. What emotions did they evoke in you? What technical aspects wowed you? Why should we be reading them, too?

As a reminder, here's The list of stories eligible for nomination. and The proposed 2010 nominations categories for perusal.

Thanks, everyone! :D

Happy New Years, everyone! :D And with the new year under way, it's time for the annual [livejournal.com profile] wl_fanfiction awards, where we pay tribute to all the friends and the stories that made us laugh and cry, that made us think, that made us fall in love all over again with our favorite pairings or introduced us to wild new ones.

I don't say this enough, but I really appreciate every single story posted that keeps this fandom and this community going. So let's celebrate them all by catching up on stories we may not have had the chance to read and by calling out our very favorites! ^_^

To start us off, here is:

THE LIST OF EVERY STORY POSTED TO WL_FANFICTION IN 2010


Feel free to use this reference for your browsing needs, and please point out any mistakes made on my part in compiling this list so that I may fix them. :)

I'm posting the proposed 2010 categories here as well, though nominations will not officially begin for at least a week in order to give people time to play catch up on their reading. Use this list as a reference for what to keep in mind while reading, and also, if you have any suggestions on awards to add, remove or alter, let me know! I'm always open to suggestions. ^_^

Proposed 2010 Awards Categories under cut )

After nominations are officially started, there'll be another week if not two for catch up reading before nominations are closed, as I really want to give everyone the time they need, and if you don't get to all the reading you would have liked in in that time, polls for final voting will also be up for a full week in order to give you just a smidge more time to check out any nominated stories you may not have had the chance to read yet.

And that's it! Have fun reading, everyone, and I'll be back next week for the official start of nominations! :D

With the annual awards just around the corner, I have a question for everybody. You know how I make a list of all the stories that were posted in the last year for reference? Do people actually use that list? Because if not, then I'm not going to make it again this year. If so, I will. :) So without further ado....

[Poll #1659544]

Thank you! :D

[edit] Okay. ^_^ So I guess people use the list. Awesome to know. Thank you, everyone.

Nominations are closed and counted and now the fun part begins: voting!

Polls will be open until Friday, January 22nd at 11:59 pm EST so you have time to catch up on any stories you might not have read (and I have time to make the awards ^_^;). Please DO NOT vote for yourself; those votes will not be counted. At the end of the week, the winners will be announced and presented with shiny banners to show off. ^_^ Congratulations to everyone nominated and good luck!

A couple notes: 1) While it was up for nominations, the "It Was All the Booze!" category was taken out of voting due to a lack of stories embodying the meaning of that award. 2) In an unprecedented turn of events, every single nomination for one particular award happened to be the exact same story. The author obviously wins it hands down, but the poll for that award is still up here to amuse me. ^_^

*ALSO! My bad. I totally forgot to put Captanonymus as the coauthor for Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, so this is my shout out to her.

This way to the polls! )

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY FOR NOMINATING! Thanks so much to those who took the time to nominate yesterday! We really, really appreciate it. ^__^ We're still a couple people short of our goal, though, so please, get in there and get your voices heard, even if it's only for a few of those awards. Thank you.

We NEED more nominations if we're going to continue. Right now, I only have about...four peoples nominations? Not all of whom are doing every category. And again, I really appreciate that you guys have taken the time out to read and nominate, but I'm going to need a lot more than that if we're going to conceivably go through with the awards.

Nominations are due tomorrow. Do we need more time? Just say the word and it'll happen, but if I don't hear from anyone and I don't get at least ten people nominating, then I can only assume that's there's not enough interest in doing the awards this year.

What it comes down to is that this event, like everything we do here, is for the members. If the members don't want to do it, we're not going to force it on you. :)

Refresher links:

Link to the Nomination Polls. - A BIG THANK YOU TO THOSE THAT HAVE NOMINATED THUS FAR! I very much appreciate, but we need MORE!

Even if you only end up nominating in one or two categories or even for one or two awards, your nomination is very much appreciated!

Link to the Eligible Stories List. - If you've never used this before, it contains title, author, characters/pairing and summary for every story posted in 2009 as well as a link to the first instance of the story for ease of finding.

Link to the 2009 Fic Reccomendations Post - For if you're overwhelmed by the number of stories and want it parred down a little. There's a bunch up here, but we could totally use more if anyone wants to throw in their two cents!

Refresher links:

Link to the Nomination Polls. - Instructions as to how to nominate are in this post. It's very easy, just fill in all text boxes for one of the categories, hit submit and then move on to the next category. I KNOW VOTING IS FAR EASIER THAN NOMINATING, BUT WE NEED THOSE NOMS! No noms = no voting. It's still early yet, but the more participation, the better, so if you were thinking of not taking the time to nominate, I really encourage that you rethink that and help us out. ^_^

So I know what you're saying. You're looking through all of last year's stories and wondering how you're ever going to have the time to read through all of them before nominating's up, yeah? Believe me, it's a daunting task (though well worth it) but maybe you're strapped for time, bogged down with work or school, and you just can't sort through all the gems out there.

That's why it's time for the WL_FANFICTION 2009 REC POST! Woo!

So come on in! Give us what you got! To keep this from becoming another huge list, let's limit to 5 recs from the past year/person, but give us more than just a title and a summary. Leave a comment and tell us what really moved you to love this story. Get the names of those authors out there and get us to love them just as much as you! ^_^

To start it off, let me throw a couple stories out there that made an impact on me. (More to follow, I'm sure, when I read up some more.)

The important info:

Nominations will be up until Sunday, January 17th, after which sorting will take place and proper voting will begin. You will have until then to nominate your favorite stories for all awards. It is not required that you nominate for every award, but I urge that you try your best to do so. We are a small fandom, after all, and the more participation, the better!

The nominations are set up thusly: There are 5 categories to be considered: genre awards, characterization awards, specific awards, special awards and the overall best award. Each of these will have a separate poll so you can do them at your leisure and not feel the pressure of having to do them all at once.

Please fill out your nominations for each award in that category before hitting "submit." When you hit "submit" it will only count the votes for that specific poll. When nominating, please state the title of the story AND the author as there are a few stories with the same/similar titles this year. Please do not nominate yourself. Self-nominations will not be counted. The polls are text entry, and the answers will only be visible to me. If you'd rather not fill out the polls, you can also feel free to PM or email me with your nominations.

As a refresher, again, HERE'S THE LIST OF THIS YEAR'S ELIGIBLE STORIES. Please take the time to read as much as you can!

IT'S FINALLY DONE! I haven't had the time yet to go through and check all my links and everything, so if you spot a mistake, let me know.

List of eligible stories for the 2009 awards.

NOW IS THE TIME TO BE CATCHING UP ON READING. (And don't forget to play along with Feedback Month while we do so. ^_^) Please use this list to go through and catch up on your 2009 reading with the previous year's categories in mind. (Which will once more be posted under a cut at the bottom.)

And speaking of categories, what do we think of adding a horror/squick category? Yes? No? Please leave a comment if you have an opinion. Also, should "Best characterization of Jeff" be changed? we had it in previous years because of the amount of Jeff fic, but we have a LOT of Chip this year, too, so it doesn't seem to make as much sense. Should we take the Jeff one out (we do have an "other" category) or maybe add a Chip one in? Or just leave it?

The nominations polls will be posted on Friday, January 8th and will be left up for one week. So starting now, that gives everyone about 12 days to read up and nominate their favorite fic. Is this enough time?

I will post reminders throughout the week to nominate and I know it's hard to read through all that fic and pick and choose, but without nominations, the awards can't go through, so PLEASE make an effort to nominate. Thank you all so much! Have fun and happy reading! ^__^

Congratulations to everyone nominated and to the winners! We had such a great group this year, and it was so hard to pick! We had a lot of close calls and even a couple ties! Here's to hoping 2009 is just as fabulous. ^___^

And the winners are... )
