Hello once again! You people really must be getting sick of me and my sticky threads :p
So our voting round has concluded, and I am happy to announce that we have a hearty list of stories and characters moving onto the next round! I will be very honest in saying I wish we had managed to get some more voters in, as these Awards are for everyone so it would make them so much more fun if there were more people submitting and getting involved. However, everyone below has earned their place in the judging round, so I am very happy on that account!

If you believe a story or character has not rightfully moved on than please let me know ASAP. Due to a lack of votes in those categories, all nominees in Best Non Pokemon and Best Antagonist have moved on.
All of those people who have moved on, you now have the option to submit chapters that will help the judges with reading your works: of course, the judges always read the first few and most latest chapters, but they cannot possibly read every chapter as they are volunteers, so your chapter submissions will help make it easier for us to read your work. In order to submit, simply PM me the links to your chapters
- Please submit no more than four chapters if these chapters are of a reasonable length, and no more than two if your chapters exceed over 20,000 words (use your own common sense here, but you will not win any favours with the judges if you submit four overly long chapters. Just be smart about it.)
- You do not need to submit any chapters if your story is a one shot, consists only one chapter or has a small amount of chapters of a reasonable length
- The deadline to have these in by is Saturday 12PM NZT, so the judges have enough time to get going.
Now, while we are all judging, you too can get in on the fun! You can vote for who you think are most deserving from the three categories below! Which first time writer wowed you the most? Whose reviews are more helpful than any English teacher? And who will be the first victor of the Best Written Word Contributor for those who make that sub-forum such a hub of excitement? You may only vote for one person from the list below, so make sure your vote counts and you can change any time, I will not be keeping track until judging is done. I am going to leave this open until a few days before judging is finished so we can make the banners, and a final date will be given in time.
Best Newcomer: Elysia, @Midorikawa, @Autumnbreeze
Best Reviewer: Tophat Dragoneye, Flaze, Kyuuketsuki
Best Contributor: @matt0044, Flaze, Tophat Dragoneye, @LightningTopaz
So make sure you all keep voting while those judges of us keep on judging, and best wishes (pun intended) to everyone out there!
