Overall Fiction Awards
Best Pokemon Chaptered Fic -
Nomination Number One
Survival Project, by diamondpearl876. Probably one of the most original stories I have ever read, Pokemon oriented or otherwise. The characters will enrage you, and warm your heart. Beautifully described and wonderfully written, this story has characters that verge on being perfect. The characters hold this story together in a web of flaws, dreams, and hope in a way that is hard to match.
Nomination Number Two
Anima Ex Machina, by JX Valentine. If you want a thrill ride full of character struggle, amazingly descriptive battles, and an intricate plot that sucks you in deeper with every chapter, then look no further. Not only is JX Valentine one of the most talented authors I've ever seen, but her fic has depth and emotion that can't be fully explained until you read it.
Best Pokemon One-Shot -
The Motionless Journey of Youngster Ian, by Psychic. Wonderfully written and incredibly original, Psychic takes a look at a mechanic in the games that I had never thought about. While parts of the story made me laugh, other parts made me sad, while a lot of it just weirded me out in a very pleasant way.
Best Non-Pokemon Chaptered Fic -
Best Non-Pokemon One-Shot -
Other Fic Awards
Best Plot - Brother's Bond, by Sid87. Characters who act on something solely out of love usually rub me the wrong way; but not here. The gorgeous story that Sid87 has created makes you believe in a bond that you can't touch or see. By far one of my favorite stories on the board, and I still get excited for every chapter.
Most Original Overall - Anima Ex Machina, by JX Valentine. Out of all the fic's I read, this by far takes the cake for originality. Aliens, mutation, violence, endless forests, etc. How could you go wrong?
Best Writing Style - JX Valentine, The Leaf Green Incident
Best Description - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Overthrown, by Knightfall
Best Setting - Revenant, by SilentMemento
Best Expansion of Canon -
Best Character Development - Sammy Stark, Brother's Bond, by Sid87
Best Characterization in a Short Story -
Best Romantic Relationship - Bill/Lanette, Anima Ex Machina, by JX Valentine. I hope I'm not the only one who thinks they actually have a relationship haha. It could be said that they don't, but when I think of Best Romantic Relationship, they are instantly where my mind goes. Sure, Bill may be somewhat transformed, and Lanette gets pretty violent with him quite often, but I believe there is a very obvious love beneath everything happening in this story that really inspires.
Best Non-Romantic Relationship/Interaction - Barry and Sammy, Brother's Bond, by Sid87. From the fights, to the bonding moments, to the sarcasm or the hilarious back and forth's, these two really crack me up
Best Original Species - The Ixodida, Anima Ex Machina, by JX Valentine. Seriously, like anyone else could even come close to topping these horribly awesome creatures.
Most Suspenseful Fic - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Overthrown, by Knightfall. From paragraph to paragraph while reading this fic, I usually inch closer and closer to the screen to the point that I start seeing spots. So yeah, pretty suspenseful.
Most Heartbreaking Fic - Survival Project, by diamondpearl876. Only fic this year that has actually made me sniffle
Pokemon Genre Awards
Best Trainer Fic - Brother's Bond, by Sid87. For all the reasons I listed before, and so many more. If you are reading this then you are hereby commanded to read this story
Best Horror Fic - Revenant, by SilentMemento. Space. Pokemon. Suicide. Murder. Dreams that you read about that give you ACTUAL nightmares. Blood. Kthnx
Best Comedy Fic - 404 Error, by Missingno. Master. Though I've never commented on his work, Missingno. Master writes a wonderful tale full of Glitch Pokemon and hilarious facepalm moments. I'm not really into Comedy, but this has me hooked.
Best Fantasy/Sci-Fi Fic - Revenant, by SilentMemento. Easily the best in this genre, SilentMemento will take you on a terrifying thrill ride into space and into a person that'll shake you down to your bones!
Best Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Fic - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Overthrown, by Knightfall. To be completely honest, I'm not too crazy about the PMD games, or even really the fics, but this one changed my mind on the entire concept. Thrilling characters, addictive battles, and casual heroics all combine to make this a very compelling story. Bought my first PMD game two weeks ago haha
Best Pokemon-Centric - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Overthrown, by Knightfall
Best Canon Character-Centric -
Best Human Main Character - Sammy Stark, Brother's Bond, by Sid87. This was hard for me at first. I tried to think of the qualities that would be needed for someone to win this, but I couldn't figure out what they were. So I thought about out of all the fic's I read, who I would trust the most to show compassion, decency, love, and respect to anyone. That right there is Sammy Stark.
Best Non-Human Main Character - Senori, Survival Project, by diamondpearl876. This is a no-brainer for me, and anyone who hasn't checked out this character yet needs to get on it. Fantastically deep and overwhelmingly personal, Senori is a Pokemon that anyone can relate to and care about.
Best Human Supporting Character - Glover, As the World Turns Back Around, by Glover. From the love for his daughter that bleeds across the screen, to his plethora of amazing Pokemon and his can-do attitude, Glover is one of the biggest things that holds this story together.
Best Non-Human Supporting Character - Tiny, As the World Turns Back Around, by Glover. Completely hilarious and prone to all sorts of endearing moments.

Most Helpful Reviewer - Sid87. Always points out grammar mistakes and oversights on my part. He always devotes a lot of time to my story when reviewing. That alone deserves a nomination from me, but after shooting through the board for so long and seeing that he does it for so many people, really means he deserves it
Most Dedicated Reviewer - diamondpearl876. Usually the first one to review every time I put out a chapter. Since she started reviewing my fic, she hasn't missed a single one. Love it
