Stargate Fan Awards - Winners Announced!

Wow! I so expected not to "win" any category this year, and lo and behold, three awards have come my way! Thank you, thank you, thank you to those who liked these works enough to nominate them and vote on them! I'm truly touched.

And the winners are:

jackwabbit for A Game to Remember
SG-1 Fan Fiction > Gen > Team > Angst (5)

This one amazes me. While it's very special to me personally, I didn't think it would have a broad enough appeal to do well. That said, there was no way I could have cut it from the competition, as it is near and dear, and frankly who doesn't love Sam Carter as a linebacker?

jackwabbit for A Long Road Home
SG-1 Fan Fiction > Gen > Duet > Jack/Daniel > Angst (6)

Happy, happy, happy sigh...this one means the world. Since most of this story involves an original character, I've always been a bit surprised by its reception in the fandom. OCs have a tendency to not do so very well, and understandably so. We all read fic to see more of the characters we love, and OCs often stand in the way of that. So this win fills me with glee. The fact that my fellow fans can appreciate this story for what it is and can "get" my main character makes me beyond happy. I remember when I wrote this fic - young Kyle just grabbed me and took me on his journey. That journey happened to involve Jack O'Neill and Daniel Jackson, but it was Kyle who wrote this fic, and it is Kyle who gets the credit here. Also, I would be remiss if I did not mention that arctict supplied one of my favorite convention moments of all time because of this story, so once again...wow.Thank you.

jackwabbit for Command Decisions
SG-1 Fan Fiction > Gen > Team > Drama (9)

Ah, the beast. Nice to know someone appreciates this story, because nearly killed me. All 52,000 words of it. Actually, I am rather proud of CD, because it is my longest story and because it did take me over a year to write (with a very long hiatus) and because Shifu is just so much bloody fun, but since this fic was up against serious novel writers like Travelling One, this kills me! I'm truly honored and beside myself with squee!

Now, lest ye think it's all about me, let's see how The Happy Place did in general!


lemonpiefirefly for The Flame
SG-1 Fan Fiction > Ship > Sam/Other

devra for Signed, Sealed, and Delivered
SG-1 Fan Fiction > Slash > Jack/Daniel > Episode-Based

devra for 525,600 Minutes
SG-1 Fan Fiction > Gen > Duet > Jack/Daniel > Episode-Based

devra and JoaG (co- authors)
for Wayward Son
SG-1 Fan Fiction > Gen > Character > Daniel > KidFic

Cleo the Muse for Jealous
SG-1 Multimedia > Music Videos > Duet > Daniel/Vala

iiiionly for I Wanna Talk About Me
SG-1 Multimedia > Music Videos > Character > Other

iiiionly & Darcy for Rolling Stone
SG-1 Multimedia > Music Videos > Team > Character Focused

CJ aka WritinginCT for By The Pricking Of My Thumbs
SG-1 Fan Fiction > Ship > Daniel/Other > Romance

Oh, I'm so proud! Happy Place FTW!

And now, a special announcement. I'm going to do something I don't do here. I'm going to admit one of my own nominations. This fic is one of my all time favorite Stargate fics, and I'm proud to have nominated it. It's CJ's By The Pricking Of My Thumbs. The fact that it won makes me think sometimes the voters get it right after all. Congrats, CJ. Still love this fic, and I do still have ideas for that crossover with my fic that you graciously permitted. Oh...perhaps the SG bunnies are biting again. I haven't thought about that in a long time...thanks, CJ.

Also, I find it quite interesting that I won best Sam/Other ship last year and my dear lemonpiefirefly won this year.

Oh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turning! And rightfully so. After all, spinning is so much cooler than not spinning.

Congrats to all the winners and nominees!

Thank you, oh great one!

(You're not too shabby your own self, there, Miss Booker!)

Thank you, ma'am. Big surprise. It's been a great week - new grandson and an award *g*
Sep. 27th, 2009 03:02 am (UTC)
Oh! A baby to cuddle and then send home! Yay!

And a SGFA to boot! Good for you!
Sep. 27th, 2009 03:05 am (UTC)
Oh definitely best part of being a grandmother. Benji's adorable (as are all 5 of my grandkids, of course *g*) but I love cuddling him and then leaving him behind when I go home LOL
Sep. 27th, 2009 03:10 am (UTC)
Yep, yep, yep!
Sep. 27th, 2009 03:25 am (UTC)
Many congrats to you and to everyone else who either won or who was nominated~
Sep. 27th, 2009 03:26 am (UTC)
And to you, my dear!
Sep. 27th, 2009 03:29 am (UTC)
Was pleasantly shocked and suprised, considering the competition the fics were up against. Am I allowed to do a litle fan girl squeeing? hehehe
Sep. 27th, 2009 03:57 am (UTC)
Of course you are!

I was in the same boat earlier! I was especially shocked by CD!
Sep. 27th, 2009 04:33 am (UTC)
Congratulations too writer. You are a wonderful writer.

Congratulations and thanks for the nod :) Definitely one of my favorite con memories. My first face to face with a fanfic writer of a story I loved and we just stumbled on to the topic. Loved the discussion. Yay for the win on all your stories!!!

Cheers to the other nominees and winners as well.
Sep. 27th, 2009 05:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you and you're welcome.

And yeah...that was a great con moment for me, too.

*tackles hugs everyone*

Well done Laura...you are a wonderful writer and deserve the award

Congrat's my dear friend - so well deserved! I must admit to be terribly proad of my HP friends!
All that hard work quite rightly rewarded.
Keep writing - keep our 'world' alive.
Bless you
Sep. 27th, 2009 05:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you much, AM!
Sep. 28th, 2009 03:18 am (UTC)
Woohooooo!!! Congrats again!! *squishes you*
Sep. 28th, 2009 04:07 am (UTC)
Thanks, mum!
Oct. 9th, 2009 01:53 am (UTC)
HEY! Congrats! The beast, the orig character, and football!
Yay for Flame! That's pretty damn cool!

And the rest of the list did great. Also, glad CJ's got something. Great story!
More later but I finally got to this post!
Oct. 9th, 2009 03:17 am (UTC)
Thanks, luv. Honestly, CD is a really big deal to me, for obvious reasons. And if you recall that A Long Road Home was in a seriously nasty category, well...that means much, too. A Game to Remember, frankly, is so unique as to be odd for most, so I'm just flabbergasted but honored there.

And as for you, young lady:

The Flame is a good fic, Beck. Honestly, I would tell you if it was total crap. It's not. It's good. You did a good job with it. I didn't read your competition, because I don't vote for fic, but I suspect this fic can stand on its own anywhere.

You done good, Padawan.


Oh, and hey! Hey! Hey! Guess what? That's me and Michael Shanks in my icon! Did ya know that? Huh? Did ya? Huh? Huh? Huh? Wow. Good times. That's where I met arctict, some to think of it. Wow.
Oct. 9th, 2009 01:56 am (UTC)
Oh, and? Your comment about the category goodness... I have followed in the wabbit's footsteps, hooray! Maybe one day I'll be a real boy!

(not bloody likely; I'll never have your talent nor dedication to writing, but it's fun...too bad the muse kinda came and went)
Oct. 9th, 2009 02:54 am (UTC)
And you know...there'd be the whole sex change thing...


Oh, and muses? They're like that. I do find it interesting that we both went Sam/Teal'c and all that. But Unending would do that to the most NoRoMo of NoRoMos, you know?
