    I don't particularly mind, 'tis but an award :") Knowing that I almost won is good enough for me.

    You're such a good sport, then. Keep that and your skills up and you'll definitely win next time!

    EDIT: Stellar Haze, those awards were done by judges, not voting... xP

    A new season is coming right around the corner. We can all brush up our skills and flesh out our stories and get on the ticket next season.
    Congrats on making the nomination @Stellar Haze and @Llama_Guy!

    Yes but the judges give you scores, you can actually ask the judges to post the scores for your fic as a review if you want.

    Oh, really? I didn't know that. Interesting. I just might do that in the future. :o

    Also, another thing that the forum I mentioned before does during awards: they also list the runner ups in the Hall of Fame. I like this too, because it tells other nominees that despite not winning, they did very well and were highly considered.

    Stellar Haze, this would make you a two-time runner up! Congrats. :D

    Still, it isn't like I can do anything about it. I'm sorry for your loss though, Llama_Guy.
    Think of it as the judges adding another vote at the last minute. I am not in a position to share the award. Giving awards out to multiple people devalues the award. Coming second isn't exactly a loss. Way to put pressure on me I didn't need.

    Very true, and a good attitude to take. I have nothing but the greatest of impetus to continue striving for awards and eventual championship. |D

    I wasn't aware of this! Where would be most appropriate to ask?~

    Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. And it isn't like I said to give everyone an award. If three or more people tied for one award, then yes, judging would be best, because if every nominee/entry got the same number of votes (I've actually seen this happen once too. There were four entries, I think. All four got the same amount of votes. Everyone was declared a winner, but I didn't like that. It made the whole thing pointless), because then the award would get pretty devalued, as you say.

    But I see no problem with only two people winning the same award.

    /sobs in corner.

    oh well, congrats to kelleo who did win my category.

    hey, i've been wondering... can we pm/vm the people who judged our stories asking what our score was and why we didn't win? i'm just curious.

    Hey, Lady Lucifer, to be honest, I thought you would win. And you would have, had the category been decided by votes rather than judging. Everyone wanted to vote for your story, after all. That should be honor enough. :)

    And you'll get your story published! Seriously, I can foresee it happening. I think your story put up serious competition for mine.
