I Just...  
Again, I'm blown away by the amount of love our fics got! Thanks to those who went out of their way [I know there were a couple, at least] to get nominations in to us when we had none. *hugs you tight* and thanks to all that are currently voting! I feel awkward sharing the banners, so I'm not even going to post them. Yeah. Again, thank you so much for those voting and good luck at all of us!

Hey, don't be embarrassed about sharing your noms! You earned every single one of them, dear, and I mean that! (regardless of my stupid diva moment previously *smacks self*)

*snugglesmishes you lots*

It's just that when we're up for stuff, people get unhappy over it and I just get really hurt over this every year and I don't even want to show them. It just takes so much of the fun out of it for me.

Aw, hon! I don't want you to feel like hurt by being proud of your work or the recognition of it. You guys deserve every bit of the love that your work gets. I certainly wouldn't nom it if I didn't think it deserved it. And anyone else that complains, well, they should've put in more noms for other people, then, shouldn't they?

And you know how I get: I turn into the biggest butt-hurt bitch on the east coast over this stuff. But that's about me, feeling like I'm just not doing enough, or writing well enough; it's not at all about you guys and your work. (You guys--and there are 2 of you, so it's doubly difficult--are simply a hard act to follow! :p)

*breathes deep* We need some meditation over this thing. Om.....

The thing is that we only work in one part of one fandom, love, while you have a bunch of fandoms you work in. We're not eligible in any of the other ones you work in or could win awards in. This is all we qualify for and the one place we win anything. And that's why it hurts.

You've lost me, hon. You work hard in your chosen corner of fandom, roll out some fantastic, fantastic fic, and are awarded for it. How is that bad? I totally look up to you guys for managing such serious feats of ficcish awesomeness.

And honestly, there aren't any other awards out there that I ever get nommed in, besides the World's Finest Awards, and I don't usually do very well over there b/c I don't write much in the fandom anymore (and I didn't do that well when I WAS writing a lot more there). The SMFA is pretty much all I've got. And I beat myself up over it every year b/c I'm not producing enough or the right quality of work to get more than a good handful of noms and a default slash romance win (which, seriously, mithen's work is WAY higher quality than mine, so I feel guilty when her massive following doesn't come over to vote). I keep trying to get my feet wetter and wetter in the fandom, but my muses are so diverse, I can't keep my attention from wandering. :( Hence, idiotic diva moments.

Anyway! I want you guys to be proud of your awesome number of noms, and I'm gonna be proud of my handful, too. B/C the alternative just blows.

Hang on, people get upset that you get nominated??? Do they realize that you write your @$$ off? And that your writing is fantastic? And that you are one of the few people who actually keep writing and writing and writing, and not do it randomly when the urge strikes you, like I do, but that you plot and plan and set a time frame out.

Seriously, who are these people complaining? And why didn't they nominate more people or write more fics for themselves?

Isn't this supposed to be a way for the fandom to unite? Bah on those horrid people! In fact, I was surprised not to see your name on the best author list as I feel you deserve that award no matter what the rules might be!

Thank you and I love you. *snuggles and wibbles* I needed that SO bad.

It's mostly outside the Family, but every year there are those that say that we only win because it's a popularity contest and that we don't deserve it because the level of our writing isn't up to par. That our stuff is badly-written and our plots are boring and have been done a thousand times before. That's part of the reason I'm a basket case every year around this time. It's why I hate to compete. Honestly and truly. I'm very nervous to have my stuff compared to several other's work. I just want to know that I'm writing fic that someone's enjoying. That's it.

And I love you for that last, but last year's 'Sally Field win' on that one will last me a lifetime! I've never been so proud to win and award! Now I finally feel like maybe we're half as good as you, Ella, and Barb. That's a moment I'll always forget!
