Subject:Stargate Fan Award Open for Voting
Time:09:15 am


The Stargate Fan Awards are open for voting now.  This really falls into the "for what it's worth" department for me this year.  Once again, voting is open for less than a month (closes July 31).  There are over 2000 nominations and we're expected to read them all in less than a month... I just don't see it happening.  Which is too bad because there are always great fics out there that are on the long side and I don't think they get read in the same level as the shorter works.  The wonderful thing about the awards is that they let you find fics you might have missed or otherwise never seen, so even if you don't have time to read them all before the deadline, I hope you do take the time to go back and read some great fic.

This year I have 5 nominated works in the competition, and only two of them are in the categories where I suggested they be placed.  My AU fic Never Wanted to Dance is now in gen actions/adventure because there weren't enough noms to have a stand alone  AU category.  They created a new category for graphic fan fic and I agreed to place So Little Space in there although it is much more fic heavy than most of the other noms in the category.  And the awards team decided that The Therapeutic Properties of Coffee had to go into ship because of the Rodney/Katie relationship, although I still don't think it is a ship fic, it just has that as the backdrop for the true story which is the John and Rodney friendship.  In the ship category, I think gen readers will never even look twice at it and ship readers are going to be highly disappointed when it isn't a true ship fic.  I just wanted to let you know about that because I'm sure there will be people wondering, why the hell did she put this fic in this category?   And the truth is, I didn't. *G*

So here's where you can find the fics I wrote:

Don Juan McKay and Other Universal Improbablities:  SGA Fan Fictions>Gen>Team>Large Works

Never Wanted to Dance (With Nobody but You):  SGA Fan Fiction>Gen>Duet>Sheppard/McKay>Action/Adventure

Sibling Rivalry:  SGA Fan Fiction>Gen>Duet>Sheppard/McKay>Episode-Based

So Little Space, So Much Time:  Graphic Fan Fiction

The Therapeutic Properties of Coffee: SGA Fan Fiction>Ship>Other Pairing>Drama

Congrats on all your nominations. :)

That being said - I have to agree with you that there's some very odd category placements this year. I keep running across stuff and going - wait, this is in the wrong category. :S

Thanks! Well, in a way, I guess that makes me feel better that it's just not me. *G* I've just written off those three that were recategorized as not having a chance in hell, which is heart breaking in a way, because Coffee is one of my favorite fics that I've ever written. And what was odd about the AU was that they had enough for team AU just not duet. If I had been doing it, I would have just lumped all the AUs together. I'd rather have it up against other AUs than the gen action/adventure where it seems like a duck out of water. Ah well, I can't dwell on these things or I go nuts. *G*
