    Please note Jane's unbelievable modesty in not nominating An-Paj as "Most Likely to be
    mistaken for Canon," since he is HER fabulous creation...

    And everyone vote for him in that category!!!

    :D :D :D

    TALKING TO MYSELF:

    SELF: You know, I'm looking over this thread, and I'm noticing something...

    BLIND MAN: Oh, man. You're going to embarrass me, aren't you?

    SELF: No, I'm going to *promote* you. See, I'm noticing a lot of *organic* characters being nominated...but what about the inorganic ones? Huh?

    BM: What are you babbling about?

    SELF: I'm talking about droids, man! Droids! So my nomination for Best Original Character is--drumroll please--

    BM: Just be quiet, will you?

    SELF: I SAID DRUMROLL, PLEASE!!!!!!

    BM: *sigh* Whatever...

    SELF: Best Original Character nomination goes to...ELF-2, from Blind Man's A Boonta Eve Tale (holiday humor)/Rogue Droid Squadron

    BM: Folks, if you're reading this, just ignore him, please. He's had a little too much "holiday cheer", if you know what I mean.

    SELF: Hey, you're the one who starting typing this.

    BM: Oh, hush.

    Best Male Original Character - Dalan from Whiskey in the Jar Jar's series of fics, most recently Year One.

    I also wanted to thank Rok & Jaxx for voting for Darth Arkus, but as I already informed DarkJade via PM, he's not an original character as defined by the rules for these awards. Thanks anyway guys. :)


    And thank you, DarkJade, for running these awards and for the all hard work it's going to be tallying everybody's votes. I helped Gandolf tally his awards, so I can feel your pain. ;)

    Okay, I may not be in order, but here goes:

    Best (overlooked) Force-Sensitive OC: Branon Windu in Strange Love, an Obi/Sabé story (yes, I've changed the title from "Obi and Sabé (my version). Couldn't help myself. ;) )

    I KNOW he's in my Obi/Sabé fic and I'm voting for my own character, but he's AWESOME! My finest creation in the SW universe and NOBODY appreciates him! :_|

    Anyway...

    Best Non-Force Sensitive OC: Maya from Amidala_Skywalker's If the Mask fits

    Best Child OC: Alia from SOT

    Other than that, I've gone blank... sorry for being so...so...I dunno... :(

    I didn't even know that this was here until now. I guess that's what weeks away from the PC will do to you.

    I just wanted to thank everyone that nominated Rela. You don't know how much it means to me. :)

    when I put my vote up for Obi Wan, I should have explained... in that story, he has no name, and his situation is very close to Obi Wan, so everyone would think that it was Obi, but it really wasn't... that's why I nominated "Obi-Wan" as most likely to be mistaken as a Canon character.
