    Welcome to the 2014 (really 2011-2013) Fanfic Awards!

    First of all, Mav and Bri would like to thank everyone who nominated and voted. At first it was looking a little like there wouldn't be enough participation to even have the awards but you all managed to jump in and we think things have gone really well. We hope you all feel the same.

    We'd also like to thank those who have volunteered to give prizes, either by their own works or by commissioning pieces. With out these people we wouldn't really have prizes to give, so a huge thanks to them. They are:

    Jedi_Lover
    earlybird-obi-wan
    Iverna
    Nyota's Heart
    ginchy
    tarmidala
    AG88
    Thumper09

    Congratulations to everyone who was nominated! There were a LOT of close calls, quite a few only being separated by one vote. We also have quite a few ties.


    We're going to announce two categories per day for all the eras so that people have time to congratulate the winners if they so choose. After all the winners have been announced, the winners will be contacted about their prizes. This is going to take quite a bit of time since we are going one by one, so please be patient. You can see how we are going to go about the prizes in the Awards Guide Thread.

    You guys said you didn't want a big ceremony, so with out further adieu...

    *Mav walks up to the mic with a long flowing purple gown with a princess neckline and beading all over the bodess. Her long brown hair is swept back into a a loose, low bun with loose curles framing her face.*

    "What? Just because we aren't doing a huge ceremony doesn't mean we can take the very rare opportunity to get all dressed up and have a little fun." She looks at all the fanficers who look unamused and just want to know who won the awards.

    "Okay, okay, we'll get on with it, but I make no promises that things won't go a little weird, your fanfic mods are pretty weird."

    *The ominous looking Iradonian standing at the side of the stage who is dressed all in black begins to tap his foot.*

    *Bri rushes onto the stage in a long, sleek, one shoulder, bright red dress. Her brown hair is in 1940s style curls.*

    “I’m not late!”

    Mav and I just kinda wanted to try this style of awards. The winners kinda get their time in the spotlight. Everything will be announced by the end of the week and we will do a servery to see if everyone liked this style, or if next year something different should be done.

    Oh hey, I actually won something--my first time ever winning here or even being nominated. :D

    Thanks everyone, both those who voted (er, even though I was the only one nominated for my category :p), and those who organized this! And so, thanks to those who nominated my story!

    BTW, is it possible to find out who nominated me, perchance? O:)
