Subject:A Huge Mucho Thank You!
Time:05:21 pm


I'll be the first to admit that for the past six months or so, I've become...shall we say disillusioned with the SGA fandom as a whole.  It seems people are much more interested in bitching about TPTB, the cancellation of SGA, the upcoming season of SGU, and several rumors/spoilers/whatever about the plot/characters/whatever of SGU than reading fanfic. And while I whole heartedly agree with just about everything everyone is voicing, it's just turned into a major downer and hasn't accomplished much more than wanting me to hide away from the whole ordeal instead of remembering and celebrating why we're so upset in the first place.... because SGA was tons of fun with wonderful characters that I want to live on one way or another.

Which was why it makes the good news I was met with today all that much more wonderful, in my opinion.  The winners of the SGA Fan Awards were announced and four out of five of my fics won!  To say that I am shocked and flabbergasted by that news is an understatement, and those of you who felt I deserved to win, especially when I see the company of brilliant writers who were nominated in the same categories... well, I'm not sure if caplocks can express the THANK YOU! I want to send out to all of you who nominated and/or voted for the fics.  But I'll try anyway.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

More than that, it reminds me of why I started writing fanfiction.  And no, it wasn't to win award, although that is definitely a wonderful perk. *G* It's because we all fell in love with a show and characters and wanted to expand on that love by writing and reading fic.  I just hope, for a little while, people will remember that and peruse the list of winners and nominees and enjoy some wonderful fic.

Congratulations to all the winners and nominees out there and thanks for keeping the SGA world alive!

Awww, thanks so much! Not sure if that's true but it's definitely a boost to the old ego. *G* But you're always good for that.

I'm not surprised in the least, River! You're one of my writing heroes! I could read your stuff any day of the week and feel better for the experience. Keep writing!

Thanks so much, Val! I'm trying to keep writing but the real life thing has slammed me lately and combined with my bummer attitude toward the fandom there hasn't been much. But I am continuing the Twitterfic Fridays if nothing else. *G*

Congratulations! Most assuredly deserved! I'm glad many of the voting SGA fans also realized how great your stories are.

I am still reading many of the SGA stories that are being written. I don't comment quite as often as I used to, and I was always rather spotty at commenting anyway. My bad. I think it is human nature which finds it easier complain than to cheer. FANDOM is wonderful. TPTB made us angry--I think deservedly so. But they, and the actors, did bring us a great show. And fandom, with all the great stories, contests, art, and sometimes total crack, made it even better.

Long live SGA! In fiction at least. ("Please, sir, may I have some more?")

Thank you very much! It's just been hard to stay positive when everytime I read something it's so negative. Like I said, I agree with almost everything that people are saying, but eventually I start feeling like why bother? And I just want to go hide away and not think about it. But I've seen a few positive spurts lately, so hopefully it will hang in there and fandom as a whole will come out of it's funk. *G*

Thank you so very much! I'm trying to write, but with RL and the like, it's been tough. I am continuing my Twitterfic Fridays, so you can get a tiny snippet of fic there each week if you like. *G*

Oh, very surprised, especially given my past history with the awards. And then to see the categories I did win... I won in ship! Me! In ship! Koschka threatened to disown me. *G* But I have to admit that fic is one of my faves I've ever written, so it's nice to see it get some recognition...even in ship. *G*

But thank you so very much for all your support all these years. It is most definitely appreciated!

I love your stories, so I'm not surprised! :) And I'll have to pop over to read the winners again.

I hope you get your mojo back, because I totally enjoy all the SGA stories out there and I'm trying to comment like crazy

Ah, the mojo has been a problem lately. It's a combo of RL and just a funk at fandom, but I have written a couple for the flashfic community and I'm still doing my Twitterfic Fridays (if 280 characters counts as fic *G*). But I do freatly appreciate that you take the time to comment. Thanks so much for all your support over the years!

Thank you so very much! You know, the awards are always kind of fickle...some years it seems one or two people win all the awards and then the next it's spread across alot of authors, and I'm not sure how to explain that because those same authors that won tons of awards in the past are just as good and had just as many wonderful fics nominated. This year I recieved the least number of nominations I've ever gotten but won the most awards, so go figure. But congrats on your past wins as they were well deserved!

Congrats! And I'm very, very glad that you found your happy place again in the SGA fandom. I completely agree with your analysis of the situation and have been sticking my fingers in my ears and shouting la-la-la-I-can't-hear-you for some time now... *grin* Again, congrats!

Congratulations! You deserve it more than anyone else because your stories is amazing.

Fandom is very frustrated with TPTB but that's not the reason to stop loving SGA and TEAM and the boys and write more stories about them because they're awesome :).

Thank you very much! And I know the TPTB are frustrating, I just wish people would tone down the anger some and *enjoy* the fandom more. But thanks so much for continuing to support it and my work!

Congratulations! I am so happy you won - if anyone deserves it, it is absolutely you.

And, I have to agree about the fandom, sadly. I'd lost interest more or less in Stargate the last couple of years, and I haven't even bothered with SGU.

Since I'm taking another break, I'm off to read some good fanfic! Thanks for the link!

Thank you so much! I've tried to give SGU a shot, but I have to say, I find it very dull. What few sparks of promise haven't come to fruition yet and not sure they ever will...which just makes me mourn SGA even more. Hope you found some good stuff to read at the awards site.
