    Well, here it is boys and girls!

    Timing:

    ALL nominations must be in by Dec. 25th. That means that at midnight PST that officially marks the start of Christmas Day, the nominating will be closed.

    I?ll do the vote count and hopefully have the voting thread up by the 26th barring many problems and then voting will go on until Jan 1st. This means that at midnight PST that officially marks the start of the new year, the voting will be closed.

    Rules:

    1) All catagories pertain to ORIGINAL CHARACTERS in SW fanfiction only. This also means that even if the story is AU, you can't vote for an AU Obi-Wan, Anakin, etc. I understand that there are several wonderful characterizations out there where canon characters have been portrayed as very different but this is really to applaud those who had the creative insight to create a new character on their own w/no prompting whatsoever from GL's brain.

    2) You can have overlapping voting. As in, if you vote for say ?Bar Bar Jinks? as Original Male Character, you can also vote for him as Best Original Character in a Main Role or something.

    3) Be fair. If you have multiple screennames on this board, don't sign in pretending to be different people and voting for your favorite! That's just stuffing ballots!

    4) Be respectful. No flaming of people's choices, no snide remarks about who people pick. Just vote and give thanks on the thread but NO flaming. If there is anything like that, your vote will be nulled.

    The Catagories:

    Best Original Character (this one you can choose from any timeframe you wish)

    Best Female Original Character

    Best Male Original Character

    Best Original Character Couple (Romantic or otherwise. If you think a particular master/padawan team is awesome or Jedi Knights who are awesome at working together, this is the catagory to vote in)

    Most Likely To Be Mistaken as a Canon Character Original Character

    Best Force-Sensitive OC Character

    Best Non-Force sensitive OC Character

    Best Original Character in a Supporting Role

    Best Original Character in a Main Role

    Best Original Character in a Villain Role

    **Thank you to Melyanna for the great suggestions on some of these!**

    And of course, PLEASE remember to put along w/the nominations the AUTHOR of the character as well as in what STORY the character appears in.

    DJ, one thing that might make things simpler...

    Perhaps the best OC award should go to the OC who gets the most votes in all categories instead of being a separate category to be voted on?

    I really hate these awards threads (they get very cliquey), but I'm going to weigh in on this one, particularly since I prefer original character stories. Unlike most people, I believe OC stories revolve around the OCs, with the usual "canon characters" having only cameos or very minor roles.

    I'm not nominating any of my own characters; I think it's tacky. :D

    Anyway, there are quite a few folks writing good original characters, both as part of standard SW stories and as their own selves.

    So, here goes:
    ________

    Best Female Original Character -- Mrs. Muse, Axxin's mom in Alli-Wan's "Jedi Dreams." Considering she's a hard-working farm wife with a inquisitive 7 year old, she keeps her cool when two Jedi come to rescue her neighbors from crimelords. (I'm telling you guys, stop right now and read that story!!!)

    Best Male Original Character -- Tough one. I'll have to say Barin Truthfinder, by HaiGan, with the long-suffering Max Antilles by IronParrot running a close second.

    Best Original Character Couple--This one is very, very hard, but I've got to go with Barin Truthfinder and Thom Capella, by HaiGan, with honorary mention to Hachas Tlaticlo and his Padawan, Kiusan, by Jane Jinn in "By the Sea Shore."

    Most Likely To Be Mistaken as a Canon Character Original Character -- I belive Jane Jinn's An-Paj already has this distinction, if his appearance in so many fanfics by other folks is any indication!

    Best Original Character in a Supporting Role -- Ven-Te Houk, by Hai Gan, in "By the Sea Shore." That should probably be "Best Original Character in an Ensemble/Round Robin," since no one in that story is a main character. But Ven-Te has managed to upstage even An-Paj. She is a Force to be reckoned with by anyone's admission, and I for one would just LOVE to see her confront Palpy!

    Best Original Child Character --There's only one possible winner: Axxin Muse from Alli-Wan's "Jedi Dreams." Unlike so many child characters in both fan fic and pro stuff, he's not precociously adorable to the point of making the reader want to vomit. He is a REAL kid, with a rich fantasy life... who else would mistake Obi-Wan Kenobi for a droid?
