Passing On The Love  
I'm on my way out the door to my mother's for the day and terribly pressed for time, but I wanted to take the time to thank all of you for the three awards we won this year at supes_mv_awards! With all the choices out there this year, I'm just grateful for what we got. I love you guys for thinking so highly of these that we won!

More on this when I get home later! Have a great day, all!

Well, ya know, you took home Best Author this year, and we REALLY wanted that. *hugs* Congrats on that. If we gotta lose that particular award, I'd rather lose it to you or Barb or Lori, people I know and whose work I admire the hell out of.

But there's always next year. MWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

My first thought after total shock was that you guys were gonna kill me. O_O *bows and scrapes* I'm not worthy!!

Don't worry about it, lady. I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that it's not going to happen for us. *shrug* The fans had their say and you were it. How can we argue. At least we lost to someone we admire.

Well, that's just not fair! *pouts* Sometimes I think that we as fans are all collectively IDIOTS. This year especially, you guys deserve this award WAY more than me. *nods decisively*

Well, after three years not getting it and having heard the feedback from fans of people with smaller fan bases, it doesn't surprise me that we never win it. Maybe that's just how it is. Maybe it's because we're a team. Maybe... who knows. And after how you felt so left out earlier this year, it's right that you have it. That's what the fans wanted. Hell, I even nommed you for it.

The biggest thing is that it really makes me question our work. More specifically, my work on our projects. I know I shouldn't, but losing it three years in a row really makes you think.

Actually, I have a theory, that could explain ALL of this. And it only *really* hit me last night and this morning, which is just crazy.

After I posted "Come What May", I noticed that I wasn't getting many reviews. Not like usual, anyway. Okay. So, my fic was part of the Aftermath-verse, and in order to have any clue what's going on, you have to be pretty familiar with the 'verse. They really aren't standalone fics anymore, with so much info crammed in over so many stories. So, I'm starting to think that people jumping in NOW, aren't going to want to bother to read all the back story, and all the other one-shots, so in the end, I get less reviews, and thus, less people nomming me and voting for me in the awards when they come around. A lot of the folks that read Aftermath the first time through aren't even in the fandom anymore, so it's really a net loss.

What if that's happening to all of us, with our established 'verses, and back stories, and epics that the new fans don't want to bother with? It's not a reflection on any of our abilities as writers at all!

And!! I have a feeling that a lot of the reason that a few of my fics even got nommed so much was because I posted them over at the Planet. Heck, Safety Net was a throwaway ficlet that I wrote in, like, 20 minutes! O_O Craziness.

Anyway, please know that I don't doubt your abilities as a writer one bit, and I hate that you do, just like I hate it when I doubt my own abilities, because people are too lazy to read (myself included sometimes).

In short: people suck.

Ummm, yeah. Amen. *LOL*

Whee, yay! I'm so glad you got these three. And there's always next year for more! :D
Lois: Lois :: Grinkalalanekent on July 16th, 2009 04:21 am (UTC)
Yep, you're right. We didn't do so bad. Maybe we'll be a little more impressive next year. :D

Congrats! I think I agree with most of the results this year, there are a few that I wish had won that didn't but it was a good year!
Lois: Lois :: Lovekalalanekent on July 16th, 2009 04:23 am (UTC)
Thanks, love! I'm just glad that most of what I nommed and voted for made it to the final ballot. I'm still annoyed what I nommed for you didn't make it in. :(
Grace: Brandon; Evil Grinrepmetsyrrah on July 16th, 2009 04:29 am (UTC)
You nommed little ol' me? *blushes* I'm ecstatic just to have had anyone think of my stories in the first place. Just being nommed really is a huge honour, to know that someone has seen the categories and gone, "I know just the one for that!" is enough.

I'm kinda bummed that some I nommed didn't get proper due but I don't think anyone got anything they didn't deserve which would have been really annoying.
