    Hi, everyone!

    Here I am, announcing the winners of our Spring Awards long last to you all.

    I must say, I was very surprised by the quantity of ties among the nominated fiction pieces and characters, as well as the wide distribution of the voting, which clearly indicates there has been much reading during this period and that we have a lot of quality works around the place.

    Congratulations to them too!

    The relevant rules for what follows (the overall voting) are below:

    Nominators and Voters
    Main: Users registered before March 1 may nominate for Awards and for Honorary Mentions, and may vote for Awards. They cannot nominate or vote for their own work, however.
    Exception: Workshop moderators cannot nominate for Awards or Honorary Mentions, but will decide on the Honorary Mentions.

    Votes
    Main: Users must vote for at least one Format category, one Character category, and either one Pokemon Story or Assorted Fiction category. They only have one vote per category.
    Exception: In case of a tie, announced at the end of the voting period, the users won't be allowed to vote anew. The moderators will decide the Award winner and will give the runner up an Honorary Mention.

    what I won something

    This clearly goes against forum tradition

    But cool nonetheless!

    Wh-- but-- what tradition? It's only the third awards!

    Aww, I didn't win the Best Reviewer award. Ah well

    Also (2): It's suspicious that I voted for the winner in each of the tied categories. Hopefully that had nothing to do with it >_>
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Congrats to all the winners!


    A lone detective takes it upon himself to solve the murder of a young woman, willingly diving into the dangerous web of conspiracies weaved by the feuding mafia families. But after the truth is uncovered, will that city of sin be the same ever again?

    WOW :O I can't believe Hanoko won! But I'm so overjoyed that she has :D The reception towards this granny has been fantastic and astounding, so I'm so so sooooooo glad that she won :) Thanks to everyone who voted for her, and congratulations to all the other winners as well!

    Also, do you we vote for an overall Format, Story and Character, or just overall Story and Character?

    Th-thanks, y'all. M-means a l-lot.



    Now I feel bad.

    Congrats to all the winners!

    I'M AN UTTER BADASS.
    Also, my fan fics, my episode recaps, and my reviewing badge.

    ...Excuse me for a moment.

    The following happy dance is so much better in Comic Sans MS font. Enjoy.

    WAHOOO, YEAH, HELLO, WEEE, OH - MY - GOD OH HOLY MOTHER OF BANANAS I ACTUALLY WON SOMETHING HAHAHA YES THIS IS TOO FRIGGIN' COOL


    THE ABOVE HAPPY DANCE WAS BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Depressing INC! We always look on the bright side of life. Too bad there isn't one.

    Seriously, though. I wasn't expecting Sinnoh Stories to win anything - but Relaxation? I thought Sinnoh Stories had a better chance. Relaxation was just written to get rid of a tiny bout of writer's block. Written in one sitting on a day when my mind was deader than a doornail. And it won a frickin' award.

    Thank you all so much! This is just too cool!

    Also, I'm a bit confused. What is "Overall Voting"?


    Thanks to ShinySandshrew of serebiiforums for the banner!

    Just goes to show how awesome you really are :D

    Overall voting is when we vote on the winners in each category to have kind of like a "grand champion" award for the fics.

    (But so far, nobody who's posted in this thread has even voted so far... >_>)
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    So, this cycle was one of tradition-breaking.

    Well hey, that happened to me too with Generation 2021 (except for the first one; but hey, I joined in May). And you don't see me saying that any traditions are broken

    Anyway, I'll go with the highest-rated fics among the votes. That means that my votes are as follows:

    Format Tier

    Ludicolo, by Yoshi1001.

    Story Tier

    Dragon Days, by Gastly's Mama.

    Character Tier

    Prinplup, from Journey out of Mt. Coronet by Kyuuketsuki.

    *edit* FIRST! Voting post, that is.
