    Default 2011 Fanfiction Awards: Nominations

    Now that 2012 is here, it's time to look back on the past year of our Fanfiction board and honor the best in what we saw.

    That's right, it's awards time again!

    The first step down that road is, of course, nominations. This phase of the process will last from today, January 1, 2012, to February 12, 2012 with a situational extension to February 26, 2012 if there are not enough nominations entered.

    What's eligible to be nominated here? That answer's simple. Anything that was posted in the 2011 calendar year - January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011 - is permissible.

    EDIT: I didn't think this would be necessary at first, but now I see that a few more rules are going to be needed.

    1: There is now a limit on how many times that a single person can nominate one fic and one author. The limit is four nominations for a single story by a single person, and six nominations total for a single author by a single person.

    2: More of a clarification instead of a new rule, but still - nominations are for things that were actually posted in 2011, not for older moments that were in fics that also were updated in 2011.

    Now let's get down to work. Look over the list of categories below, and for each, enter up to two nominations for that category.

    Are there no limits on how many times a single person can nominate one story/author? (Question, not criticism - I just want to be sure before I nominate.)

    Chapter 64: Hide and Seek
    The story of an ordinary boy on an impossible quest in a world that isn't as black and white as he always thought it was.
    (rough draft of the remaining chapters finished for NaNoWriMo; to be edited and posted)

    (completed, plus silly extras)

    No such rule was present last year, so no, there isn't. There are enough categories that nomination lists should be diverse enough.

    Okay, then! I'll consider that my cue to be a raging elyvorg fangirl. (If this is excessive, which it probably is, please do say so and I'll cut it down to something slightly more sensible.) EDITED. Not that it didn't deserve all the other ones too.

    Question? If a fic was started in previous years but continued in 2011, is it eligible for nomination?

    I haven't read nearly enough this year to get a good list going, but I'll definitely fill this out as best I can. =D With thoughts, for some reason.


    Best Pokemon Chaptered Fic

    The Battle Frontier: A Brendan and May Adventure by Breezy
    It's embarrassing how far behind I am on this (I've only read the first two or three chapters) but I've immensely enjoyed that small portion. Plus, it's one of the very few chaptered fics I've read this year, so. ._.

    Best Pokemon One-Shot
    The Life of a Bulbasaur by Bulbaclaw
    I don't think he's active anymore, but I really like this one-shot, for whatever reason.

    Retroactive Continuity by JX Valentine.
    I never got to review it (it was completed by the time I read it) but it was excellent and I was really wowed by the idea and the execution.

    Best Plot
    Crushed by Dragon user X
    It was a very interesting idea and I thought it was done really well.

    Most Original Overall
    Retroactive Continuity by JX Valentine.
    Like I said, this idea was so cool to me and I've never seen anything close to it.

    Best Characterization in a Short Story
    Option Other by Breezy
    A really simple, really cute one-shot where the characters and their interactions were the highlight.

    New Game by Dragon user X
    All six characters' personalities came across perfectly in such a small space. It was the thing I liked most about this piece.

    Best Non-Romantic Relationship/Interaction
    Hilda and Hilbert in Option Other by Breezy
    I just couldn't get enough of their back-and-forths. XD

    Best Human Main Character
    Hilda in Option Other by Breezy
    I just cannot stress enough how much I loved these characters. Hilda's last, gloriously corny line was one of my favorites of all time.

    Best Non-Human Main Character
    Rhydon in New Game by Dragon user X
    I suppose this would be considered a main character. :/ Anyway, all the characters were great but this one was my personal favorite. Nearly broke my heart.

    Most Memorable Quote
        Spoiler:- Option Other by Breezy:

    I couldn't bring myself not to nominate this. It's a shame it's only as great as it is in context though.

    Whew! I skipped a lot of categories, either because I hadn't read anything that was close to qualifying or I just didn't have a clear winner or favorite. I'm glad I got this done though! =)

    Yes, it just needs to have been updated with some content during 2011 to be eligible.

    The Shippers section has their own awards that they handle independently for those.

    2 quick questions... do I have to put a link to all the stories/chapters that I nominate? And if it's a nomination to something that streaches across several chapters, where should the link lead to?
    Looking for a battle, any mode. PM me if you want one.

    Just link to the fic's thread, not the individual chapter; the voting system can only handle thread links as it is.

    I haven't read nearly enough of the stuff here to make any objective choices, so I'll just fill out a few categories.

    Best Writing Style: Coriolanus Rowland's Guide to Pokemon Husbandry by Cutlerine.
    Cutlerine's cynical humor shows through amazingly in this work. The scientific theories he proposes in here are always logical and always make sense, giving us all a better insight into the pokemon world.

    Best Non-Romantic Relationship/Interaction: David and Paula from Chronicles of Unova
    It's amazing what can be done with a relationship without making it romantic. Those seems to be the most abundant type of relationship in the pokemon fics I've seen. David and his trusty partner share a truly unique relationship that I've never seen between a human and a pokemon before.

    Best Comedy Fic: The Awesome of Awesomeness by Missingno. Master
    This story always has me rolling out of my chair with laughter. The quirky characters never fail to make a funny scene and the running gags give the story a sense of continuity that, in my opinion, makes it seem less like a stand-up comedy act and more like a story like it should be. There's an omnipresent plot and plenty of drama and adventure that make it so the story is never stale. Kudos to you, Missingno. Master. I guess the reason I choose this part of the saga is because of the original plot intertwined with the journey fic aspect.

    Best pokemon one-shot: New Game by Dragon user X
    The words of this story reverberate in my mind every time I read this. Each word is carefully thought out, and is consequently poetic. The characterization is excellent. Most of all, it evokes feeling.

    Most Dedicated Writer: Missingno. Master
    He's been writing the same series for a couple years now. Also, he responds to pretty much every review. If that's not dedicated, I don't know what is.

    Most Helpful Reviewer: JX Valentine
    I've seen some pretty hefty reviews from JX. She points out every problem, no matter how small. That's much more helpful than endless praise.

    (will be updated as I come up with more)

    The Great Butler has asked me to close the thread for a little bit; apparently there are some concerns about the rules. It should be opened again shortly.

    May I have your attention? Thank you. Don't get me wrong, it thrills me to see my fanfics nominated here. But I see some of you nominating The Adventure of Adventureness in various categories. As this fic has been completed in 2010, it is not eligible for these awards. The other three stories in the series, however, The Awesome of Awesomeness, The Random of Randomness, and The Epic of Epicness, are all eligible for these awards, as they were all worked on in 2011. Thank you.

    And now, my own nominations! I may add more later on.

    As a side note (that Butler already probably knows about but should probably be put down in light of treeko's nominations), but XP-494, XP-650, and the Ixodida are all the same species. So it can really be listed any of those ways. b)'')b Thaaaat's... pretty much just to avoid confusion later on, pretty much. *solemn nod*

    Also! Nominations! I've covered pretty much only what I've actually either read or skimmed through over the course of the year. Yes, the ballot is long. No, it actually didn't take me that long to compile. Tip for those of you thinking about editing in picks later: if you know your tastes, you can go through the entire fic archive for the year in a night just by reading the first page or chapter and eliminating anything that doesn't suit your fancy right off the bat. b)'')b

    Anyway! There's a few fics I skipped over completely because I'm attempting to catch up with prequels (and they know who they are), so I just want to apologize for not including them. I might go back and slip them in later along with some nominations for categories I didn't touch.

    Babbling over...!


    Overall Fiction Awards
    Best Pokemon Chaptered Fic
    First nomination:
    The Thinking Man's Guide to Destroying the World by Cutlerine. It's extremely carefully written, with well-developed characters, a deep plot, and just the right balance of humor.

    Second nomination:
    The Kingdom, Zibdas. Just… yes. The first chapter alone is pretty awesome, with incredibly vivid detail and just enough hints to establish Red's personality without actually telling us who he is. Also, it has nice dashes of humor and is, in general, pretty well established.

    Best Pokemon One-Shot
    First nomination:
    New Game, Dragon user X. What can I say? I'm a sucker for experimental story modes. Not to mention he really got into the mindsets of each of the characters (who themselves were pretty well-developed) to create an extremely emotional and poignant piece.

    Second nomination:
    Fad, [Imaginative]:[Clockwork]. The reviews are correct about this one. Fad sets itself up to capture the forlorn feel of nostalgia, and it does a fantastic job at doing so, with a character who just won't accept that everything he knew is gone.

    Best Non-Pokemon Chaptered Fic
    First nomination:
    The Ripple Effect, Zadros.

    Second nomination:
    Digimon: The Roots of Yggdrasil, Kamotz.

    Best Non-Pokemon One-Shot
    Who Do You Think You Are?, Dawn_Hero. It starts off rather beautifully, much like a fairy tale, with vivid details and characters that seem to be names of concepts rather than flat-out people. You've got the eloquent condemned man, whose gentleness shines through his kind words to the Queen. Then, there's the Queen, who loves and adores this man with sincerity and purity, despite the fact that he immediately rejects her. And, of course, there's the ending, which I didn't expect at all. It's just plain beautifully told, and it doesn't remotely beat its reader over the head with its message.



    Other Fic Awards
    Best Plot
    First nomination:
    The Thinking Man's Guide to Destroying the World, Cutlerine. Snarky Rotom getting stuck in the head of an ordinary kid, starting off a long journey with a *****y Sapphire and every intention of defying every rule in the book? Yes, please!

    Second nomination:
    Absconditus Infensus, moonlightning and kjt. Pokémon invade the real world in a way that doesn't make me want to jam my back button. (Realistic and avoiding the "OMG POKÉMON LET'S BE TRAINERS OLOLOLOL" trap.) That's all I have to say about that.

    Most Original Overall
    Lull, Breezy. I wish I could describe all the reasons why I thought this deserved this category, but I'd be here all night.

    Best Writing Style
    First nomination:
    Lull, Breezy. Now I finally have to elaborate. Basically, one of the things I loved about this fic is how conversational the narrator was. There were times when the narrator seemed uncertain of details ("Black. Maybe it was for an hour. A minute. A second.") and other times when they betrayed a pretty sharp sense of humor ("Ropes are heavy. Don't ever let someone tell you they're not because they are, and if they tell you ropes are light, then you tell them they’re liars. Really. Straight up."). Either way, the narrator gave the entire story a certain dreamlike quality to it, like it's being related verbally like some kind of legend, not like it's being related in the plain text of a book.

    Second nomination:
    polar nettles, Ejunknown and katiekitten. The fic is actually a series of drabbles, but even with the word restriction, both writers have shown enough talent to say a lot using only a little, if that makes sense. Their descriptions are powerful, and their narration, by necessity, is straight-to-the-point but clear. You wouldn't even be able to tell that it's actually a collab fic because of how seamlessly their parts integrate with each other.

    Best Description
    First nomination:
    The Kingdom, Zibdas.

    Second nomination:
    polar nettles, katiekitten and Ejunknown.

    Poetic and vivid details on all counts… but nothing even close to purple. Definitely worth a look or few.

    Best Expansion of Canon
    First nomination:
    The Retelling of Pokémon Colosseum, bobandbill. Because yes.

    Second nomination:
    Under the Same Sky, Draco Malfoy. The fic starts off by giving a believable voice to the main character, and it just keeps going from there. All of the canon characters are fantastically IC, and the plot in general only adds to that. Draco's not afraid to delve into every corner of canon (even something as minor as why the protagonist is named a color or why N is only known by a letter) to flesh out the world he presents to us, and the interactions between Black and Cynthia make the whole package beautiful and entertaining. Not to mention it gives a sort of meaning to the post-game events.

    Best Characterization in a Short Story
    Giovanni's secretary, Secretary, rokettololi

    Best Romantic Relationship
    First nomination:
    Celebi/Gardenia, Skogsra, Diddy. Just… the ending. It's beautiful.

    Second nomination:
    The Queen/the condemned man, Who Do You Think You Are?, Dawn_Hero. Even if it's one-sided, it's beautiful.

    Best Non-Romantic Relationship/Interaction
    Hilda and Hilbert, Option Other, Breezy.

    Most Heartbreaking Fic
    First nomination:
    Crushed, Dragon user X

    Second nomination:
    Who Do You Think You Are?, Dawn_Hero. Just… yes.



    Pokemon Genre Awards
    Best Trainer Fic
    First nomination:
    The Thinking Man's Guide to Destroying the World, Cutlerine.

    Second nomination:
    Mentor, Dagzar. I have to say, Mentor's one of the best I've read. The character balances between Leah, Ed, and Ally (when Ally is doing much in the way of interacting, at least) really make it, to put it in short. Not to mention it's a rather interesting spin on the new trainer journey, and I adore the idea of the Trainer Mentor Program in general. In short, awesome main characters combined with something fresh and new brought right to the table. You really can't go wrong here.

    Best Horror Fic
    Wendigo, Dawn_Hero

    Best Comedy Fic
    First nomination:
    The Retelling of Pokémon Colosseum, bobandbill

    Second nomination:
    Turnabout Assumptions, bobandbill. It involves Miles Edgeworth being hit in the face with a fish. This is all you need to know.

    Best Pokemon-Centric
    Three Heads Are Better Than One by elyvorg. I have to say the score for the contest is well-deserved. This fic shines a spotlight on Dodrio pretty well, carefully crafting believable personalities for each of the three heads while exploring completely the way they operate within one body. It's also a pretty unique spin on any multiple-component Pokémon I've ever seen. Most writers tend to handle things like Dodrio or even Dugtrio, Magneton, and so forth as one robotic entity, but not here. These characters are alive, and although they have their conflicts with each other (squabbles, guilt trips, general personality clashes), they're ultimately a team by necessity.

    Best Canon Character-Centric
    First nomination:
    Secretary, rokettololi. It's basically "Giovanni's Secretary: The One-Shot," and it does a great job of being such. It effectively gets into the mind of a character that doesn't even have a name, and it's very careful in describing her sadistic nature without making her seem overly violent. Instead, she comes out intensely powerful, and it's almost sexy to watch her dominate that random grunt.

    Second nomination:
    Option Other, Breezy. The banter between Hilda and Hilbert is absolutely hysterical ("You're… I don't even know." "Glorious in twenty different ways."), but even more than that, it captures both characters really well. Both of them seem human, and the relationship between them seems casual – natural, even. You can really believe that these two are genuine, extremely close friends, even if they do rib each other a little.



    Character Awards
    Best Human Main Character
    First nomination:
    Alvaro, Something's Got To Give, Dragon user X. Admittedly, I've only read the first chapter, but in the space of a first chapter, Dragon hit a serious home run, proving that, yes, you damn well can create an entertaining character at the beginning of a long fic. And an entertaining character Alvaro is, particularly thanks to the fact that he, for once, provides an actual reason why he started late. It's not because of law-related shenanigans or vaguely defined plot reasons. It's just because it's all part of Alvaro's motivations, and that makes Alvaro probably the best human protagonist I've read this year.

    Second nomination:
    Giovanni's secretary, Secretary, rokettololi. I would have her boss me around any day. Except I won't because that's considered a level of Hell. She may be the main character of the fic, but she's anal and a full-on *****. Yet, she's sadistic without being ridiculous, powerful without stepping over the line, someone who's entertaining as a character while being someone you'd like to never meet in your workplace. In short, the concept of her is sexy. If you're into GLaDOS-like characters, anyway.

    Best Non-Human Main Character
    Robin Goodfellow, The Thinking Man's Guide to Destroying the World, Cutlerine. I don't think any explanation is really needed to state how hilarious and awesome Robin tends to be.

    Best Human Supporting Character
    Hilda Wayland, Something's Got To Give, Dragon user X. A mature, responsible, caring mother who actually acts mature, responsible, and caring? Yes, please.
