Finally, the honorary Awards Award, given to the member who wins the most awards, goes to Gavin Luper for racking up eight Silver Pencils! Excellent work, Gavin!

That just about does it for this year’s Silver Pencil Awards. Congratulations to all our winners! We look forward to seeing everyone again in a few months for the Golden Pens. Until then, this is your host, mr_pikachu, signing off!

:D

Well, I'm stoked and honoured.

Thanks to everyone who nominated or voted for Lisa the Legend or myself, I can't say how much I appreciate it. I'm really pleased that Lisa received the Best Character in a Leading Role award; I've always struggled with characterisation, so this is really nice to get. Best Chapter for Behind the Glass is the other one I'm really proud of - those who read Lisa the Legend know that it took almost all of last year and a huge amount of perseverence to get that epic chapter completed, and I'm glad it was deemed a worthy instalment by the readers. Thanks again to everyone!

Congrats to everyone who won awards - especially Saffire Persian for scooping up Best Writer once again and Andrew for taking out Biggest Drama King for possibly the fourth year in a row! (I can't back that up, but it seems possible ...)

Now, shifting into mod-mode: From a vote-counting point of view, this was a really good awards year. We had a really spread result and a lot of members picked up awards - not to mention a fairly impressive voter turnout. So, thanks to everyone who participated in the awards by turning in ballots, nominating or suggesting, because it made this year's Silver Pencil's one of the strongest awards we've had.

:hellyeah:

Cheers!

Well at least I got something. I've lost count how many times I've won Most Evil.

21st January 2007, 07:30 AM
Well we didn't sweep the awards but I think we had some very tough competition!

I'm glad The King Prawn Pawn Shop got some recognition; tieing with Dark Sage, hey we both win DS! :)

w00t Most Dedicated Writer and Nicest Fanficer! Dare you mess with MEE?

Anyway congrats Gav! It will be an empty empty day when your fic is finished. No-one to win awards! Well done everyone.

Wow, people actually read my fic? Who are you? Don't stay hidden! I could really use the input.

Thanks a lot for the two awards. I love writing and, while real life gets in the middle all the time, I do my best to write a good story. So knowing that others enjoy it means a lot to me.

And congratulations to the winners of all other awards! I must admit that I don't know some of them, but the ones I do know are well-deserved. :)

x.x *faaaaaints*

Okay... it appears The Quest for the Legends won some stuff...

"Best Pokémon Fic"
Haha, it beat Lisa the Legend, winner of Best Fiction Overall, at Best Pokémon Fic? Is it just me, or is that really backwards?

"Best Trainer Fic"
o.O Um, thanks?

Not "Best Action"
I'd have died if I had won that, considering how embarrassingly little action there is at all...

"Most Improved Fic"
Yay, finally something I deserve. :D Thankees.

"Best Overall Setting"
...o.o Ooookay. I guess. Thanks.

"Best Unromantic Relationship" (Scyther and Charizard)
Haha, thanks. Even though it lasted only about eleven chapters.

Not "Best Original Cast"
Yay, one less undeserved award to feel embarrassed about.

"Best New Pokémon" (Chaletwo)
:D Yay, I love Chaletwo. Hoping, of course, that this is meant to be an award for the characterization of said new Pokémon, not for the actual design of the Pokémon itself. Because if I won that for ripping off Mewtwo, slapping a Dark-type on and giving him a murderous gaze and then a couple of years later making up an explanation to make him seem a bit less dumb, those who voted for me need to be shot.

Not "Most Dedicated Writer"
Heh, it was the second most probably deserved one I was nominated for (it does take dedication to struggle on with writing and rewriting the same fic for four and a half years), but I'm very content to lose to Chris 2.0, because man, he is dedicated. Too dedicated for me as a not-very-dedicated reader, unfortunately. v.v I NEED to catch up with Monica's Vendetta sometime...

Thanks to all who voted for me, even if I didn't deserve it. Always fun to get a little ego-boost. :wave:

Dark Sage
21st January 2007, 10:46 AM
I gladly accept the awards for Best Plot Twist and Best Original Character. Sadly, this will be the last award that Gestalt will be able to accept, as Pokemonese is now finished.

Thanks for everything.

Um... how did I win Best Reviewer? Good lord, the world is so high on various drugs and generally sleep-deprived these days. I mean, I suppose I think something of my reviewing skills... I mean, hey, in tenth grade I had to write a fricking 14-page paper on critiquing/reviewing, so I like to *pretend* that I know what I'm talking about... but... yeah, you're all insane. o.O

...Nonetheless, though, I appreciate those of you who did vote for me. I can think of about 90 other people who deserved it more than me, but I loves you weird-votin' maniacs anyways. Thanks!

Awesome job with the awards Gavin and Brian! Thanks for getting them done so quickly!

Also thanks to everyone who voted for me. I really appreciate it. It's awesome to win best comedy with such a little ficlet as My Holiday Trip, and I'm glad people enjoyed it. I'll probably write more comedy soon. As for best quote, so much for brevity being the soul of wit I guess ^_^;; that quote was looong. Congrats to everyone who got an award and keep writing everybody. The Golden Pens are next up, so let's get some great material out and ready.

Gestalt like always wins. But it has to stop somewhere.

Congrats to all those who won awards. I'm betting you deserve them.

Saffire Persian
21st January 2007, 10:19 PM
Wow, congrats to all who won. And thanks to all those who voted for me. It's great to see a whole bunch of winners as well!


Best Writing Style

Thanks. ^_^ I'm glad somebody else besides me enjoys reading second person stories. Though I honestly don't know quite why I like it so much.

Best Battle Scene
15 - Diane and Stella vs. Ian, Metamorphosis, Saffire Persian

XD You have no idea how much this nomination amused me. No, no idea at all. I did enjoy writing that particular scene, though... I did feel bad about inflicting an unnecessary human version of a Body Slam on the poor guy though.


Best Character in a Supporting Role

It's nice to know such a diminutive little bug could actually get nominated -- and win -- Best Character in a Supporting role. ^^ It makes me happy to know he's a well-loved little guy... with an obsession for running into windows and Capri Sun.

Best Writer

Wow. ^^ Such a close tie with so many great authors. I'm glad there's a bunch of people out there who actually thing my stories are good, and that I'm a good enough author to deserve the nomination, even with my odd love for second person.

Thanks a bunch, guys!

Wow. I won something. A fic-related something. Thanks for nominating and voting for me for my first fic award. I've always considered myself a random reviewer at Fanfic, but apparently I now write as well. Cool. To everyone else, congratulations, and it's great to see so many different fics getting awards. Special congrats to Gavin Luper!

Eek? I actually managed to get... Best Promising New Fic?
People...actually... read it? *bursts into happy tears*
(*is currently suffering from post-ASlevel results depression* YES! I will (eventually) destroy this writer's block and return... thanks for the vote(s) everyone ^^

3 awards... well, this is quite a pleasent surprise to get upon my short return to TPM.

Thanks to everyone who voted for Demon Inside and Gone DP!, and voting me the most dedicated reader. Which reminds me... I haven't wrote Demon Inside for a while...

Okay, back to work. And congrats to the winners, and the other nominee as well.
