It's That Lovely Trauma-Inducing Time Of The Year Again...*whimpers*  
It's June, everyone!  What does that mean?  Well, in Florida it means temperatures in the 90s, a humidity close to 100%, and giant cockroaches trying to invade your home.

But in Superman Movieverse fandom, it means AWARDS TIME!

The fourth annual Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards will begin nominations on Monday, June 7th.  Keep your eyes on supes_mv_awards  for more details, but I do have a couple spoilers for you!
  • This year brdwaybebe  is in charge of the awards - htbthomas  and bistyboo1974  are stepping down after three years of hard work on the awards they originally devised.  Thanks are in order for all three of these wonderful ladies!
  • Two new awards will be given this year: Best Beta and Best Reviewer

So start thinking about which stories you'd like to nominate.  And authors, start compiling your lists of eligible stories!  Make life easier on those nominators. 

Remember, any completed story or work in progress is eligible regardless of length or rating, so long as it meets these two criteria: it must be primarily based in the Superman Movieverse (the films Superman the Movie, Superman II, Superman III, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, and/or Superman Returns), and it must have been written or had significant additions (new chapters count, edits of pre-existing work do not)  between June 1st, 2009 and June 31st, 2010
That's all for now - make sure you watch the community supes_mv_awards  for the latest news!  And once we have banners and icons available, make sure you promote the awards far and wide.  It is NOT an LJ-exclusive event, and all corners of the movieverse fandom should be represented!

Now, pass the Rolaids. GAH!

*passes antacids*

Would it help to know I've already got Heirs down for 12 noms, and a PB fic of yours down for one? ^_~ That is, assuming we have more or less the same categories this year. :p


Man, I need to go post some ficlets! O_O *dashes off*

*bounces* I can't wait! I've already got a list of noms I've been putting together over the past few months and I love pimping out my fav authors!

And 22 fics of my own are nomm-able so I'm really hoping to win something this year myself.

YAY! I've had a decent amount planned that I've seen over the year, but I've got to put aside enough time to read and re-read some fic.

Good deal, Grace! And boatloads of luck!

I love bugs. I love creepy crawly things like snakes & spiders & snails & 99.999% of insects. But my family instilled in me a deep & abiding fear of cockroaches; as a very young child in the Philippines, they were considered THE most disgusting thing in the whole universe. Worse than rats the size of guinea pigs.

I stepped on one wearing flipflops (because it was EVIL & must be STOPPED) and there was this horrific CRUNCH that I FELT and one of the antennae was BETWEEN MY TOES and I ran away AND SO DID THE ZOMBIE COCKROACH OH MY GOD I HATE THEM SO HARD! *rocks in a corner*

Is this a bad time to mention that Anissa's terrified of them, too? EWWWWWW!

:D We had hoped that you'd approve!

*chugs the thing* You'd think I'd finally be over being a nervous wreck in June after all these years. Yeah. *sighs*

Speaking of which, I know you're busy right now, but I wanted to ask if you would have enough time to pitch in for graphics? No big deal if you can't, but everyone's always loved the work you've done. *snugs*

It's okay, love. I had thought so with all that's going on, but I had to ask. *snugs*
