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!

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
