    Well Red is supposed to be 10 in case you're wondering :p but it isn't really a kiddie voice, he can pass off for 13 actually since well...he's got Naruto's voice.

    I know he is about 10, but the thing I hate most about the anime these days is Ash's voice (in the dub that is, I dont watch it subbed) as its just really annoying and gross to listen to :P I would rather Red went ... than had that voice!

    I've seen the first two episodes of the Origin special and I enjoyed watching them. I expect to be seeing the next two shortly.

    As for the awards, keep your fics coming! The more, the better!

    Hmm.

    I'll work on my nomination for Pokè Wars: Downfall of a Champion tomorrow.

    I'd like to see what the judges think of it — given that it's been met with pretty much universal praise. Including from Cornova himself.

    Is there a hard cut-off date for nominations? I really don't think The Long Walk is award material and don't much like self-nomination in any case, but if nominations are a bit thin on the ground I might be persuaded to enter anyway

    The seventh of October would be the last day of self-nominations, but then there's also nominations made by other users not listed afterwards (if I got that correctly).

    It is this Monday at 8:30 AM NZT, which is Sunday night for most people. We changed to self nominations so that there was a chance that more people could get recognised as with the old style we only ever ended up with the same stories time and time again and a lot of the time we actually ended up running out of entries to fill the spots as not enough people were voting, and the new system is designed to allow more entries to come in and get more people recognized. I think you should submit your work and see how it goes :)

    And I think what Tophat meant was that you can nominate a single story if you don't have any published work yourself in order to join in on the fun, as last time some people were a bit disappointed they couldn't nominate anything as they didn't have a story themselves.

    I don't think I'm going to nominate PF this time for a number of reasons, but mostly because I haven't written a lot since the last Awards. Besides, I'd feel bad if I won Best Dark Fic twice in a row. The next time I win in that category, I want to win Best Story as well (as if that's ever going to happen). I'd like to advance into the real meat of the plot and rewrite a large portion of the beginning before entering again, but that will take a lot of time and work (especially because I've had no motivation whatsoever lately). I was thinking about entering a character category, but I'm not really confident in any of my characters... again, I'd like to do a bunch of rewrites so I can make them more memorable. I'm definitely not going to nominate LG, since there isn't much to judge at the moment and reviews have been mostly average.

    You shouldn't feel bad aboout winning twice in a row, it would mean that you are deserving of the title, and I would personally be disappointed if a winner did not make a return appearance. I think everyone should give it a go, and I think throwing both your fics into the competition could work out better than you expect :)

    Oh, what the hell, I'll throw my hat into the ring. I still don't think The Long Walk is awards material, but it'll help flesh out the nominations at least

    Glad to see another nomination :D We still need submissions for Best Alternate and Best Non Pokemon/Crossover, and any extra Dark noms would help out as well. You have about 24 hours to get them in so let's get going :D
