The Biggest Surprise of the Year (SMFA 2010)  
*is still getting over the shock* That...didn't turn out quite the way we expected.

Really.

I'm still trying to get over the huge honor that you guys have given us. Really. We've never experienced an awards where we were quite so decorated. I felt like I was holding my breath to just get a few this year. And then you gifted us with so many. I have to pinch myself to believe it. We both feel a little like Cinderella and we love you all SO DAMN MUCH for it.

On the other hand, those we were competing against were the best authors in the fandom this time around. Are there others that surpass us in writing ability? I know so. Hell, the fans wouldn't have nommed them if they weren't. We were extremely lucky to have squeaked in with just the right amount. I want to give highest props to all the authors and the fans that took the time to make all of us feel extraordinarily lucky to be so loved. Every one of you is utterly amazing and we're so blessed to have you in fandom.

LONG LIVE THE SUPERMAN FANDOM, IN ALL ITS INCARNATIONS!

That said, I shall now list our trove (banners to come once januaried stops working herself to death; seriously, folks, her workload would kill a normal person)

I never thought we'd EVER get this one. Seriously. So I need to say an extra-special 'thank you'
for our getting the award. You guys will never know how much this meant to us. I can put my Susan Lucci Award away now. THANK YOU SO MUCH! WE DON'T DESERVE YOU!

Also, for those that wanted the Zod bumper stickers, they should be available at week's end. ;)

THANK YOU ALL SO VERY, VERY MUCH!

And yes, the chapter will be out on time! :D

We're still reeling, too, love!

And we're also only going to do oneshots for the rest of this year and some of the beginning of next before undertaking anything else huge again. I'm fairly certain you can kick our ass next year. *tries to shake your plot bunnies awake*

Conratulations!! :)
Hello, Charles here
I am not surprised. I am very happy for you both. You had my support even if not my votes. You both obviously deserve all of the praise you get. I realize the competition is stiff. That is why ya'll should be that much more convinced of your ability. For all who read this... I love being a fan in this fandom. I am very lucky to have this much wonderful quality content to choose from. Friendly competition only makes me happier. I do not wish to make a faux pas, so Please forgive me if I say the wrong thing, but I would so pay hard earned $$$ for what I get for free from you folk. I mean all of you. Thank you so very much for the great stories! I tend to vote w/ my $$$. Since I can't do that here, I'll just say I would if I could :) By the way, I hope this is enough of a sign that you really do need to go pro. I would love to see your interpretation of a screen play for a t.v. show or perhaps a movie. I know you could sell books or short stories with Warner Brothers backing you. I seem to remember suggesting you try to find work that you love. If not, I am now :) Be well, and again, Ya'll are awesome!
