You do not automatically win, and the stories are all judged and need to have some degree of competition, which has been a rule for a while now.
    Oh, I see. Sorry... You didn't need to be harsh. ._.

    @Flaze: That is what will happen. I seem to remember once a while ago when there was still Best Shipping and only one fic got nominated, and there was a bit of discussion/debate over if the person deserved the Award or not if she was not competing against anyone. I am not sure of the exact outcome, but I think that the writer either denied the Award or reluctantly accepted. So it has always been the case that there be a minimum of two entries per category now.

    @Kelleo: I was not intentionally harsh, I was merely stating the facts.



    Remember to nominate for Best Newcomer as well, as we have had no nominations for that so far!

    I figured, but you still made me feel as if I was doing something wrong or such... Oh well, I apologize for misinterpreting. xP

    Just that nobody even seems to notice that I'm nominated-It knocks the oomph out of me.

    The supporting character field is the biggest one in the competition - only two characters out of the dozen plus have actually moved on to the next round. You should not beat yourself up at all as it is a very tight race, one of the biggest ones I have ever seen in the Awards, and people will be making very tough decisions as to who they vote for.

    I can understand kind of though, as my fic got votes, but none of the characters I nominated (which are all from said fic) got votes. I just really felt like the readers of this fic enjoyed my characters (and I really thought Bryan was one of the greatest characters I ever came up with. I surprised myself with him, even).

    But despite my disappointment in that, I'm glad my fic at least got some appreciation here! And it's not just about winning, it's also about getting more readers for your stuff later as well. :)

    There are still a few days left to get your votes in people! We need Best Newcomer nominations, as well as more for Best Reviewer and votes in Best Dark Fic and the three character categories! If you have not voted yet then now is the time to do so!

    Well, that's my problem. I swear, my read rate has gone up by less than TWENTY, and I'm holding a poll to see whether or not to drop my fanfic... :'(

    I am going to be frank but with good intentions: You need to stop complaining. Everyone on this website has trouble with getting people to read their work, even if they get nominated for Awards and stuff like that. One of my fics, Galactic, has been up since 2010, is over 20 chapters long, has been nominated for Awards plenty of times, and in those three years it has surmassed a total of 17 individual readers. You have only been on this site for a month and you already have 33 individual readers for yours, so on those grounds, it is already more successful. You need to be patient and wait for readers to come rather than continually going on that you aren't getting enough or you aren't getting votes. It took me three months to write the last, fifty page chapter of Galactic, but I wrote it because I want to finish this story regardless of how many people read it or how many Awards it wins or anything like that. You should be writing because you want to write the story, and getting readers should come second to that. The Awards are about celebrating our work and learning what we can improve on, not getting prizes or readers for simply the sake of it. You nominated yourself in the biggest, tightest category that even the most popular of fics are struggling to get votes for and only two characters have actually made it on to the next round out of 13 nominees, yet none of them are complaining about it. You need to accept that this time it may not be your time and try again next time: I have been doing that for over a dozen awards ceremonies now waiting for Galactic to actually have its chance to shine, and if I had just given up after one failed Awards ceremony I would not be in the position I am in today. You need to think "I wonder why people aren't voting" and work on ways to improve that character or your writing rather than getting into a big huff about not getting recognized and deleting your story for no reason. J.K. Rowling got rejected by 16 publishers or something like that before Harry Potter got picked up; if you want to write, you need to learn to deal with rejection and simply accept it and move on, otherwise you will never be able to make it.

    Just to clarify, that was all meant in a kind, supportive way, even if it came across as a bit brash.

    I think "Pokemon: The Song of Jewels" has been cleared to move on.
