    Default Shipping Oscars 2012 - Results Posted!


    Welcome, welcome, welcome all you writers, readers and reviewers! 2012 went by fast, didn’t it? Well, before we all dip into the bright and wonderful possibilities that 2013 can bring, I say we stop and take a look back at all the fantastic contributions that have been made to this section over the last year. So, without further ado, I bring you: this year’s Shipping Oscars!

    I’m privileged to be running this show for the second year in a row. A big thanks to everyone who helped out last year and to the Oscar’s past hosts Encyclopika, Water Spirit, shadow_shipper, and Uzumaki Hinata! Thank you all for making this possible!

    We’ll be following basically the same format we did last year, by which I mean, we head straight to a vote. All the eligible stories/people have already been listed out in their appropriate categories. All you have to do is cast your vote. Eligible stories = stories that were updated at some point during the year 2012. That means even if your story was started in, say, 2010, as long as you’ve posted a chapter in 2012 your story is eligible for this year’s Oscars.

    How do you vote? Simple enough. Just send me a PM telling me which folks you’d like to vote for. BAM! Done. The deadline for voting is February 28th, 2013, which means you’ve got some extra time to get some reading in even if you haven’t already checked a lot of these out. So please do vote!

    Rules:
    -All forum and sub-forum rules apply.
    -Vote by sending me a PM, not by posting here.
    -You cannot vote for yourself.
    -Vote based on the quality of the work, not on how you feel about the author as a person. Do not vote for someone just because they’re your friend.
    -When you vote, you can vote for as many or as few categories as you want. But only one vote per category.
    -You can vote for the same fic multiple times as long as long as it’s for different categories. (Ex. Say a fic was up for Best MultiShipping Fic, Best Oneshot, and Best Fic—you could vote for it in each category if you wanted to.) Same goes for authors/reviewers.
    -You can sig campaign for this. As in, write "Vote for my/so-in-so's story in such-and-such category in the 2012 Shipping Oscars!" or something of the like in your signature, and I do encourage you to spread the word to your friends about this contest but... be ethical about it, kay? Don't attempt to coerce people who haven't even read your fic to vote for it or get your friends to vote for you--you'll be looking at disqualification and a possible infraction for sending unsolicited messages/advertising if you do.

    Voting is, of course, its own reward, because you get to help celebrate and encourage talented writers and reviewers, but I’m not leaving it there. After all, I made stickers last year for voters… so what have I got cooked up for good little voters this year? Why, a lovely locket! How appropriately shippy!



    Yep! Voting gets you your own locket with the pairing of your choice on it.

    I’ve also whipped up a few official contest graphics if you’d like to spread the word about the Oscars in your signature. Feel free to use ‘em!

    Alrighty, voting is now closed. I'll be announcing the winners here just as soon as a I finish making the prizes. Next week is dead week for me (yeah, that's poor scheduling on my part, I'm afraid) so I've got my hands full and I might not be able to get them done as quickly as I'd like ^^; but I'll get them done for y'all just as soon as I can!

    Once again, a big, hearty thank you to everyone who participated and voted ^_^

    Well, here we are once again! All the votes have be tabulated and all the prizes have been made—so it’s pretty clear that now’s the time to announce this year’s Shipping Oscars winners.

    OH MY GOSH THE PRIZES ARE SO SMALL AND ADORABLE I'M GONNA DIE

    I don't know why (even though I... pretty much know why), but the "Other Fic" winner and its banner makes me giggle like a mad-woman. I bet Silent--Protagonist didn't really expect it to be that popular, since it has the vibes of "this was a joke, don't take it seriously" (unless he/she really does pair them seriously xD), but I'm really happy it won. It's well-written for what it was.

    Congratulations to all the winners! Probably because I didn't really vote in a lot of categories, some of the winners made me double-take until I recognized the title |D. But they truly deserve the Shipping Oscars. A lot of care was put into those stories, and it just makes me wish that the Shipping Fics section is just as active as the regular Fan Fiction section, there are really a lot of good stories here.

    *notices the winnings*

    Awww, this makes me all... fuzzy inside. *awaits the drone of groans* For those who voted for it, thanks a lot ^^. The "Timeless Fic" one caught me off-guard, if only because one: I didn't really understand the rule right, and two: I was all "Wait, I haven't updated it in a year, how was it qualified?" It makes me feel bad for not having updated it... *sadness*

    But enough of that. Congratulations once again! Hopefully this year will be even better. I'm sensing a small boom in stories over the horizon.

    Congratulations everyone for the wins! I'm glad the Drying Pan won--the story deserved some sort of mentioning--and that KP's Fuzzy won, because that was both hilarious and adorkable. I can't wait until next year, everyone!

    ...

    ...Wait a second.

    I think it's my time to say congratulations to everyone who has won. I can clearly see the effort put into these stories, and I hope everyone continues on writing!

    Also, I'd like to say thank you for everyone who voted for me, and who voted in general, I was honestly shocked.
