Welcome to the 2006 Silver Pencil Awards! :biggrin:

I'm glad to see that you all enjoy Fanfic enough to give such support for our Fanfic Awards. It's great to see this place still thriving, and it's a special treat to see the best of the best get some well-deserved recognition.

It's time to get to voting. But before you do, you should make note of a few rules for this event:

1. You may only choose from the list of nominees, and may vote for as many or as few categories as you prefer.
2. Points System: You can make up to three choices per category but you must rank them 1 to 3. Top choice for the category gets 3 points, 2nd gets 2 points, and 3rd choice gets 1 point. Gavin and I will do the math.
3. PM your votes to either Gavin Luper or me. Do NOT email us. We're using the private messaging system.
4. Send your votes via PM to either Gavin or me before the deadline: April 4, 12:01 A.M. CST (Central Standard Time).
5. All votes are final, so make sure you're certain about your choices before you send them.
6. No voting for yourself.

Nominees may post links to their fics in this thread so that voters can see what they're voting for.

• "Well I was thinking about having the story of a girl. An ordinary girl, and basically she has a guardian angel, but the angel is telling her to kill as part of a greater scheme. So the girl slaughters the father in the shed with his power tools, kills the mother in the kitchen. Its then we find out the angel is actually her dead older sister, and we follow her as she hunts down this really meanie girl from school and kills her by throwing her off a bridge during a storm. We then follow her and slowly uncover that she actually has a mental illness and there is no angel as she goes on killing people." – Olivia in Electric Buggy to Victory, Andrew

• (Opponent uses Sandstorm) "Without saying a word, and shrouded by the poor visibility caused by the sandstorm, Chris, Lucy, and pikachu escaped, furthering their advancement towards Slateport. Not until five turns later did the kid realize what had happened, and that he had actually been attacking a patch of grass in their absence." Lost in the Haze, billy5772

Um, mr_pikachu? I noticed two mistakes here:

-Demon Inside was put as "best original fic" when it's actually a Pokemon fic, and
-Cool-headed Blaziken, like you have stated, is not a new writer.

Well, I only saw those errors. Well, see you around!

mr_pikachu
18th March 2006, 05:05 AM
...Well, now I'm just ticked off at myself.

I'll go ahead and remove Cool-headed Blaziken from the Best New Writer category, as I had intended to initially. I'll also move Demon Inside to the appropriate category while we determine the best way to handle any votes that had been counted toward it in the previous category.

YAY! I was nominated for the Golden Rassberry of The Silver Pencil Awards. I'm oddly happy. We'll, I already gave up on my fic. So I guess that means I automatically win, well lose. And most original character. Who doesen't love grumpy old guys?
