The votes are in, and have been tallied up by both Padawan Di-Lee and myself. The awards are under lock and key, guarded by Gandalf Postmangler (a mjighty vjiking warrior). Dozens of people voted for over one hundred different fics. Some rules pertaining to voting were ignored, some confusion over a certain stories length ensued and there was much nail bitting. But now, without further ado, let the Awards Show begin! The first category is for Best Alternate Universe fanfic. The top three vote getters in this catagory were (In alphabetical order): By the Grace of Lady Vader by JediGaladriel, ami-padme and Alderaan21 Dark Mirror by Gandolf the Grey Galaxy's Reflection by Padawan Lunetta In twenty minutes the winner will be announced, and receive the nights first award! Feel free to post an excerpt, either before the winner is announced or later on in the thread.
