Holy Geez! I might actually get the noms in in time! And get the chapter done without breaking a sweat!

My shock, it is mighty!

No, seriously, I'm totally surprised.

Got my noms in Saturday night, and actually managed to fill out almost all the categories! Unbelievable. :p

I'm nearly done with what I'm going to be able to do. I'm just not going to get in all the reading I want this year. And I feel awful for it, but my plate is just getting way too full.

I suck. :(

I totally feel you about not getting all the reading done. There were a few long series that I tried to get into, but just couldn't. Urgh.

And you do not suck. I, however, do. *cough* XD

You will be significantly cheered up when the run-off ballot is posted, I assure you, too.

It just kills me that I'd end up this short on time when the noms come up. Especially after all of that mess last month. *heaves a great big disgusted sigh*

XD OMG, ILU! And you do have a point. ;)

You think so? I can't decided whether to be nervous or not. I think the only reason I'm not right now is because I'm staying tired. XD And I can say that for you, too. :D I think you're going to do pretty well for the ones you got to write. :D

I know, it always seems to sneak up on you, and then BAM, not enough time to read everything you missed. O_o

And dude, you just cheered me up so much. XD I've been operating under the assumption that I don't have a snowball's chance in hell this year (partially considering you guys are gonna blow me out of the water again!), but hey, noms are good, and I'll take what I can get at this point. :p

And of course, your noms are in the double digits. *cough* You guys write so much, and so damn WELL, that I think it's just inevitable. ^__^

Lois: Lois :: Thoughtfulkalalanekent on June 25th, 2009 04:01 am (UTC)
Oh, please, you wrote some serious badass stuff this year. It's a given that you'll get nommed. *tacklesnugs*

And see, I'm finding myself of two minds on winning.

One part of me feels extremely blessed and excited to know that people love my stuff. You know it means so much to me.

But another part of me dreads it. Especially this year. I hate knowing that there are people out there will say it's just because we write too much and it's all my friends voting me up. And I hate that those thoughts make me not trust that it's me and Anissa's writing that brings about any wins that we get.

I also hate that others have to lose for us to win anything. I don't like beating anyone. I really wish that all of us could be recognized without excluding anyone.

I also worry that we write too much. Maybe if we weren't putting so much out, someone else would get noticed.

...see, this is why I hate Awards season and feel so much better after it's over. *sheepish smile*

I totally feel ya' on being conflicted. I want to see more people win, so I tried to nominate lots of different folks in most of the categories, but then, you guys' stuff is so fantastic, that sometimes I just couldn't ignore it. And really, it's the *quality* of your work that does it. As for the quantity, well, if other people don't like it, then they can darned well write more! *nods decisively* (And where was this philosophy last year when I was bemoaning my solitary win? *slaps self*)

But yeah, I admit that I get totally jealous over how much you guys win. *shuffles feet* Part of me is still sore over not winning Best Villain for Luthor in Aftermath and Best Supporting Characters in Aftermath that first year, but hey, them's the breaks. You guys had more readers thanks to FF.net, and sometimes, that's what it boils down to. Of course, that's not to say that it was just number that won the day, but your stuff is good, so you tend to keep more readers interested. Again, QUALITY!

Okay, I'm gonna shut up now, before I shove my foot any further down my throat. :p Gods, can this awards season just get over with already!? O_O

I'm glad for you, hon!

I feel terrible about not getting any noms in. When are they due ?? The end of the month!!? *sigh* I don't know.

I've read maybe 5-10 Superman stories all year, and I can't seem to muster up enough energy to do anything about it. Is it me or is there not much to nom ... or I'm not reading enough. Yeah, that's probably it. I have no excuse. *facepalm*

But I so love you guys and the stories you write. I'll come up with something to nom! Off to get my act together..!!
Lois: Lois :: Caughtkalalanekent on June 23rd, 2009 05:34 pm (UTC)
Don't feel bad. I'm just trying desperately to make the noms I know I can make since I'm not being able to read much and RL is trying its damnedest to bury me in work at the time when I least can afford it.

*snugs* You're more than welcome to nom us, if you like. But the others have had awesome stuff in the last year. If all else fails, go through the fics you liked best on 12 Days. It should make the pickings a little easier.

That's an excellent idea. I'll also check out Cloisfic too! I'll find something, I know, I just need to find the time. Last weekend was a total bust... this weekend? Hopefully!!

*will get my act together ... I promise!:D

I just got my noms in, relieve to have it done but I didn't nom in all the categories.

And is that Zod in your banner? How many villains are there?
Lois: Lois :: Grinkalalanekent on June 24th, 2009 05:14 pm (UTC)
I'm struggling to get them all, but I just don't get to read enough. And I hate that because I want this to be fair to everyone. I just wish I could be home for a full day and get them all done.

Zod? Where? *big grin and whistles* ;) And as to how many villains? You'd be surprised.
