So, a quick glance at the flist tells me it's that time of year again. As I've said more than once these past 12 months, my squee is not what it was. The loss of dear friends, scrapping the website, a sense of moving on and a general lack of desire to engage in fannish activity have rather dented the shiny and there is a distinct 'back to school' feel, a sense of the nights drawing in for me whenever Fandom is engaged in these days.

But hey ho the nonny, I am certainly not above joining in when the awards come around! Yes, I really am that vain! I am nominated and managed to stay out of the angst and dark categories this year, which, considering my usual output, is a thing to be celebrated indeed. ::nods::

Blue is up for slash H/C, Established relationship and Post TSbyBS - all new categories for me, which is pretty exciting. It got nommed in a couple of others, too, and I had to prune so thank you, nominators, for your perfect loveliness to what is still (to me) a slightly dodgy story. You're all too kind.

Chasing Rainbows is nommed (again! lol! Will it never die!) for gen H/C

Wind Whispering is up for gen novel

Most amusingly of all, I am up for gen outstanding author. Oh my. I mean, whoever nommed me it's just gorgeous of you and blessings be upon you but lawks a lawdy, talk about not worthy! I've been giggling since I got the email.

Fanfic Hospital (on which I collaborated) is up for a few categories too.

Anyway, I thank you all and bow obsequiously in your general directon.

Whee! That's terrific news, and well-deserved.

Thanks so much. Well-deserved? I'm not so sure, but I'm grateful for the love.

Congratulations

Although how Blue missed the angst department is a mystery...

Oh, I know!, I'm conflicted, whilst it's nice to have a break from being the queen of angst, if Blue can't cut it in the angst stakes, I dread to think what's been nominated. O:! *G*

Congratulations! All very well deserved. I'm so pleased that Blue made the final cut. :-) (although not in angst, huh? *scratches head*)

I know! I can't stop gigglin'! I'm dying to see what stories made it on to the ballot, they must be doozies! *G*

Congratulations!
Thank you! May I smooch you in time-honoured doxie fashion?

As long as I can smooch you back! :-)

(Wait, are we BNFs or doxies? Or maybe BOTH! *g*)

Well both, of course!

Congratulations! Of course, then we're faced with trying to choose between some VERY good stories.

I've felt a bit down because of Betagoddess's death, but I guess I should post about my own noms, too. As you say, it's that time of the year.

Helen's death has certainly stripped a lot of gilt from the gingerbread. I'm thinking how she'd be all over LJ now, congratulating everyone and, it just refuses to sink in, that we'll never hear from her again.

Do post about your noms, I'm always excited to hear what's going to be on the ballot.I wasn't going to make The Post this year, I just wasn't feeling it at all, but then everyone else has, and tbh, I feel better already for having done it - and poked a little gentle fun as I always do because, at the end of the day, it's just fandom, you know? :o) And Helen would want us to. ::nods::
