Thank you so much to whoever nominated my stories!  You made my day go from good to stellarly awesome and splendiferously spectacular!  I'm so happy I'm abusing the English language, you see? 

Absence of Light Awards

One of the first fics I ever wrote, Heartbent, was nominated at The Absence of Light Awards - Round 3 for Best Gen and Best Overall Angst.  Also, Why Not was nominated for Best Ficlet (100-999 words).

(I couldn't pick just one fic-appropriate banner so I picked three because... um, they're awesome and pretty and I love these characters.)

Over at the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards for Round 20:

Thought You Should Know was nominated for Best Characterization (Buffy) and Best Plot.

Begin Again was nominated for Best Romance.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun was nominated for Best Comedy.

And I was also nominated for Best Author.

My reaction:  Buffy characterization nomination FTW.  Thank you thank you thank you.  Best plot?  This is for the story that literally started out as Spike's letter and my how it's grown--I've been playing chicken with Joss Whedon as every issue of Season 8 is released (it's a 'he goes left but he doesn't go far enough left and so I go so far left like whoa' kinda thing).  Best comedy?  That is all Faith--I find it impossible to write Faith without double entendres taking over.  Oh, Faith, love ya and your raunchy sense of humor.  And aw, "Begin Again"--my sweet Buffy/Spike romantic fic. 

Looking at this, it's interesting to think about where the inspiration for each fic came from completely different circles.  "Begin Again" is birthday fic I wrote for bobthemole  around Christmas-time; a story I stayed up until 4 in the morning on Christmas Eve writing because I am insane.  "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" was a product of the spontaneous rocket launcher ficathon of AWESOME.  TYSK and Heartbent came from a similar place--my wanting to flesh out areas of Season 8 and really get inside Buffy's head and heart (something that's a bit more difficult in the comics medium).

Thank you to the nominating fairies!  You brightened my day with your magic fairy dust.  We should all endeavor to spread around some of that nifty fairydust by nominating some of our favorite stories... 

Oh, and this might be kinda old news, but I didn't realize that Getting Off was named as 'Unsung Hero' in the Doomed (Best Het) category at Round 7 of the Running With Scissors Awards rwsawards -- that's like Honorable Mention, no?  Thanks so much!
