The 2008 Silver Pencil Awards ~ Voting Topic



Welcome back to the 2008 Silver Pencil Awards! It's time for the most critical part of the competition: the voting phase!

We use a 3-2-1 voting system here. For each category, you may choose your top three choices. Choice #1 gets three points, #2 receives two, and #3 earns one. After all the votes are tallied, the nominee with the most points wins!

You can vote for an many or as few categories as you like. Your ballots must be submitted via PM to me (mr_pikachu) or Gavin Luper by 11:59:59 p.m. on Thursday, August 21st, 2008.

Self-voting is not allowed – be honorable, people! – but you may feel free to post links to your nominated fics in this thread so that voters will be able to examine the nominees. No begging for votes or bribery, though. Or death threats. We don't like death threats.

Without further ado, here are your nominees....

All the rank and file soldiers had to chance it to see what was going on. But the captain- he was smart. He was issued with a little stick of glass and metal. A simple periscope. Easy enough to poke up without getting hit by a flamethrower or a thunderbolt. And yet in the world of politics, it was the other way around. It was the leader who somehow always had his head above the trench, ready to be lobbed off by any passing Scyther," Narrator, Politics by Darien Shields
