since I didn't notice and since no one has contacted me about it, I didn't know Salt & Burn .org was gone and has been for over a month.

It never really took off in the way I wanted it to, but I really want to apologise to anyone who had stories archived on there.

I will continue with the awards, but I'll make them a sub-domain on the moments-lost site instead of their own address. (Otherwise it'll cost over $100). Is there interest enough to re-boot the archive on there as well?

I don't want to stop any of the awards sites - especially not the WKA which is where it all started for me!

I'm actually considering a whole new start and am also considering a couple of new ones as well. I floated the idea on Twitter yesterday but didn't get any feedback there. What do you think of adding Dollhouse and/or Leverage awards sites into the mix?

A lot of the time I feel terrible because I start each round with the best of intentions and then by the time the winners are announced I'm snowed under with other things and can't devote the attention to them that they deserve - hence me asking what people think of the timings of the different awards and also whether they would be willing to help out.

I'm having a crappy time right now - no real reason, just my meds not balancing and the people I connect most with being unavailable to me for one reason or another - but I adore fandom and it makes me happy. So I'm trying to throw myself back into it with a vengeance. I'm writing again, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] thebigbangjob as an author and have my idea, have a hook, was brainstorming it on an A3 sheet and got shivers up my spine. Speaking of, I may be in need of a beta or two in a little while for this - anyone interested?

I've been working quietly with [livejournal.com profile] r_becca and she and I are really excited about the prospect of the thing we're working on... (*is vague*)

Waiting for [livejournal.com profile] thedothatgirl to get back from holiday so that I can get stuck into the AVA special summer round.

And three (or five) awards sites (staggered so that my brain doesn't explode...) sounds like fun to me.

Now I'm going to go home and try to write something that isn't the epilogue...

(and I'm signed up for [livejournal.com profile] whedon20in20 this month as well. See? I'm determined.)

Bugger. Balls. Crap. I haven't done the banners for the salt & burn awards. They're now two months late. I really need to fix this and get it done now.

Unforgiven II was at number 9
The number one? Disappear.

So many of you chose Enter Sandman, it didn't even feature.

(and my favourite? Frantic)

ETA Would any SPN fen be willing to do a really quick judging pass over the RPS category at the Salt & Burn Awards? One of my judges has pulled out of that category and although I have two others judging it, one of them's me and I'm not a fan of RPS really so...

Library's closed tomorrow so I won't be online until Thursday afternoon. [livejournal.com profile] bellatemple, [livejournal.com profile] hopeless_cynic and [livejournal.com profile] kitty_cat89 all have the judging guidelines. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks all!

Hmm  
When judging a fic in a specific fandom, if one feels the urge (and indeed follows said urge) to write porn in another fandom, should the originating story be marked down?
(I would post the porn but my phone doesn't format paragraphs properly...)
I'll post the porn tomorrow when i can get to an actual computer

Firstly - the WKA votes have now been verified (after I spent far too long faffing about with an Excel spreadsheet and trying to work out why it wasn't totalling properly. Me and Excel? Not friends...) I'm in the process of collecting graphics for the banners and hope to have the winners announced at the end of the week.

S&BA - I need to email the judges today, I cloistered myself away this weekend and then realised that I didn't contact anyone. Sorry about that girls - expect an email in the next hour or so!

Now the big news!


Gotta Have Faith awards


The Faith Awards site now not only has a name, but is open for nominations! I'm desperate for judges since this will be a partly judged/partly voted for site. If you're interested either comment here or email the site: faith.awards@moments-lost.org

And, as if that wasn't enough for a weekend's work...


Fulcrum - a Leverage fan reference and resource site


The Leverage site is now open... kinda. The only content on there at the moment is the transcript for the Pilot which [livejournal.com profile] robinyj has compiled. I've been toying with the idea for this site for a while now, and when Robinyj asked if anyone knew where she could post her transcripts, it seemed the perfect time to get going with it. I'm working on content for it now, but if anyone has anything they'd like to contribute - character profiles, actor bios, episode guides, pictures, graphics, transcripts etc - please email the site at this address: fulcrum@ moments-lost.org

*phew!*

Thank you to my wonderful flist who suggested the name 'fulcrum' by the way - a lot of you quoted Archimedes at me when I was pondering and this is the result!

Now I'm off to email the judges at S&BA and start downloading all the fics I have to judge as well.

(the icon's new btw, I would say this was a GIP but with everything else I've had to post about... *g*)

ETA CROSSOVERS!!! Balls - hang on, I'll go add that category to the Faith site. Anyone with a cool name for it gets a drabble of their choice written for 'em in appreciation!

Nominations for the Salt & Burn Awards are now closed. I'll be contacting the judges tomorrow to assign categories and give them the guidelines for this round's judging.

Voting for the White Knight Awards is also now closed. I'll be verifying the votes and banner making - hopefully the winners will be announced within the week.

The Faith Fic awards site still doesn't have a name yet, but will launch on Monday 10th August.

In other site news - the Leverage subsite I talked about will be up by Monday too. Hopefully!
