Okay, Now The Scary Part Is Over  

Voting is now finished for me this year. I will now be going back to avoiding the results, writing our current lineup, and eating Tums until the 14th. It's going to be a long two weeks. Hugs?

*goes and hides*

Finished my voting, too. But now I'm sitting here having my own personal pity party and hating myself and the world.

Damn, when did I get to be such a freaking DIVA!? O_o Buh.

I don't think we can see the results.... can we? Wait, I don't wanna know. Bleargh. Too much temptation to go see just how much I'm *not* gonna win anything this year.

*pats* You are awesome, Saavi.

See my response to Lois here about results and such. :)

Thanks, hon! :)

MOM! *hides deeper*
Lois: Lois :: Almost-Laughing Grinkalalanekent on July 2nd, 2008 05:56 am (UTC)
That's the reason I hate awards season. I spend the entire time feeling bad because I really want to win certain catagories, but then again I want my favorites to win, too. And I hate it when I have to compete against you guys!

I love you guys! I don't want to beat you out just so I know that my work is loved! *whine*

And I don't want to know what the results are. I'm too nervous. Especially if it's a catagory I really want.

*hugs back* And I know you're going to to sweep certain ones. And I fully expect for us to lose Best Author to you, B, and Lori again this year. It was an honor just to get nommed on that.
saavikam77: Lois Lanesaavikam77 on July 2nd, 2008 05:38 pm (UTC)
Ugh, same here. I turn into a complete diva, and then hate myself for it, and I hate competing against you guys, too! Gah!

*hugs you* I'm with ya' on not really wanting to know. I've just gotta distract myself for the next 2 weeks. :p

And awww!! *blushes* I *really* want Best Slash Romance, but I have my doubts about getting Best Author. I have the sinking feeling that Clairecheaux is gonna sweep that one, b/c she has such a ginormous following at The Planet. O_O Gods, I'm jealous. I *never* had a following like that.


Man, I gotta squash these diva moments! XD

*more hugs* :p
Lois: Lois :: Stresskalalanekent on July 2nd, 2008 05:48 pm (UTC)
Claire really is hilarious, though. And I'm pretty well assured that you're going to be one of the finalists on that. At least we weren't completely shut out like last year. We made it to the final ballot, which thrills me to death.

And well, the thing is that the BT crew get a little crazy during the Awards and the votes get weird because of it, although it looks like it might not get as insane this year. They seem to have calmed down some.

Although I'm not pleased with one of the nominees getting in, which is awful. I know it is. But it should surprise me that she snuck in. I think it's the only time I've felt like this. Ever. *is bitter and hates it*

saavikam77: Lois Lanesaavikam77 on July 2nd, 2008 07:25 pm (UTC)
Gods, I was *part* of the BT crew last year! XD I hope I wasn't too insane. :p

But Claire's following... man, they scare me. O_O

And oh, do tell! O_O *is insanely curious* (send me a PM? *puppy eyes*)
Lois: Lois :: The Infamous Lane Poutkalalanekent on July 3rd, 2008 05:08 am (UTC)
Oh, Ella, *I* was a part of the BT crew for a long time. And no, you weren't. At all. I just wish I still felt comfortable over there. *sigh*
ColtDancer: herocoltdancer on July 1st, 2008 09:29 pm (UTC)
Not to be nervous! Not to take out stock in Tums! You worry too much, m'dear!

Never fear - your fans, your writing, your stories will ALL come to the rescue and you need not fret in the very least!!

Best wishes to you!!
Lois: LS :: In The Beginning (Richois)kalalanekent on July 2nd, 2008 06:00 am (UTC)
*LOL* I love you, Angie. It's awful to admit that I really do wish I could win these, right? *hides*

I just hate having to go up against my friends.
AlphieLJ: Superman Fan Fic Awardsalphielj on July 1st, 2008 11:06 pm (UTC)
You worry too much. You will do FINE!

Still, I found myself looking at the ballot in puzzlement. How can Bequest be nominated for overall fluff AND angst?

Sunspots and Franz Kafka' Girlfriend compete in too many categories for my liking.

And on a personal note, my big reveal fic didn't get nominated for best reveal. Hum. That was a downer. But at least Kate doesn't have to compete with Kala this year!
Barbara: Summerhtbthomas on July 2nd, 2008 12:04 am (UTC)
Hey! I have no idea, but tons of people liked Bequest in that category! Who am I to say... last year the fluff category inspired a lot of discussion, too.

As far as Sunspots and FKG, Deja Vu was probably worse... but BJW has a healthy number, don't you think?

See my note to Lois about results and such.
Lois: Lois :: Stresskalalanekent on July 2nd, 2008 06:10 am (UTC)
You know I do! *LOL* I can't help it. I really hate having to compete with you guys, especially since I always feel like you guys deserve them more.

Some of the noms were... curious, but hey. And I have to agree with the oddness of Bequest and Best Fluff. Then again, Christy deserves all the awards she can win for it. It really is awesome.

Well, Sunspots and Franz Kafka's Girlfriend seem to be big favorites to Blue Tights. I honestly tried FKG and I just... is it awful to say that I just couldn't get into it? I feel bad for saying that, but it's true. I haven't had a chance to start Sunspots. But hey, the fans like them, so I say good luck to them.

I think the lack of nom that disappointed me was not getting One Liner this year. That one means a lot to me, but oh well. It'll go to someone else this year. And that's true, Kal is out of the running this year. I wonder if she'll be eligible for Heirs next year... *ponders*

Good luck this year, Lori, and here's hoping that you get both OC and OC Romance if nothing else. I know how much both of those mean to you. *hugs*
saavikam77: Lois Lanesaavikam77 on July 2nd, 2008 05:41 pm (UTC)
I've felt the same way about FKG. I just... can't seem to finish it! I think the chapters are just too long... O_o

And I'm embarrassed that I haven't gotten to Sunspots yet, either. :|
Lois: Kal-El Lois :: Really Snorflekalalanekent on July 2nd, 2008 05:53 pm (UTC)
Honestly? And this is awful, but she lost me after the 'dream love scene'. The characterizations didn't strike true. The set-up just didn't grab me. I just couldn't finish it. And I feel bad because so many people liked it.

Our chapters were long, but you guys still read it. And I feel like a heel mentioning that.

I just feel awful about the fact that I didn't enjoy it.
saavikam77: Clois Flightsaavikam77 on July 2nd, 2008 07:27 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I haven't been able to get with some of the characterizations there, either. It just... doesn't quite work. But man, her chapters are like novellas! My eyes start to cross after a while. O_o

And don't worry about not enjoying it! Not everyone will like everything. :p
Lois: DP :: Writerskalalanekent on July 3rd, 2008 05:12 am (UTC)
Yeah, they were pretty long, which isn't always a bad thing. But... they just dragged for me. Nothing made me want to read further. If it's something that is paced to excite, I'll quickly make my through even a 2,000-word chapter. This. Just. Didn't. I was so disappointed that I could enjoy it.
Barbara: SMFA - SRhtbthomas on July 2nd, 2008 12:00 am (UTC)
Yes, it is very much true that results are not visible to anyone but me. (The site requires a $350 fee to allow that!) But I feel the features in this site are far superior otherwise!

But I'll release the results (sans who voted for what) to anyone who wants them.

Of course, a sly PM or IM would easily make me give up the current totals at any time. :)
