Okay, I very well may have made mistakes in spelling (or even in categories--I had to go back and redo one because I forgot to change the title of the category from one set of awards to the next).  I've spent a lot of hours on this stuff, so stupidity is a real possibility.  Just let me know, so I can fix anything I screwed up.

Let's start off with a special award... the Out of the Blue Award. Each round, three previous winners from a previous round (picked at random) have a chance to name their favorite stories, the ones they wished they had written, and wished the rest of us would read. Here are the three winners for the Out of the Blue award for Round 3

002s6e51Part One
Part Two
Part Three
002s7bt0The Lady and the Tiger
002s8gtwThe Deadly Sins Series
1. Envy
2. Lust
3. Gluttony
4. Wrath
5. Sloth
6. Greed
7. Pride
A couple of the stories were written outside of the two year window, but the entire series gets the win, and any story or series that has been significantly revised or added to within the two year window is eligible.

And here are the rest of our winners... Congratulations to EVERYONE.  There were a lot of great stories out there this round!

002rzwkbMine, All Mine
Beautiful hospital room h/c piece with upset Protective!Blair holding himself together after a bad scene, because his injured Sentinel needs him to be okay. Nice undercurrent of UST, and nice contrast between what really happened and what Blair tells Jim.
It's a vignette of love and dedication that keeps on even past memories and illness. It's very sad and very real.

002ryw3xMy Life Twice Closed
Beautiful,heartbreaking yet so believable

Man Hunter
This is a superbly well-crafted tale of suspense! Lots of darkness, great twists and turns, stellar characterization, and it is so emotionally gripping that you just can't wait for each new chapter! This story is incredible!

002s0z8p"Sock Puppet"
heartwrenching but truly beautiful

Kith or Kin?
Superb writing in every aspect: language, charcter development, pacing; Great story in and of itself. Great Angst

002s57syCircle Dance
Duncan (Garham Scott) and Methos (Aidan Whittaker) are written perfectly. (this is a slash story)

002s3q4hDo Not Lay Heavy On My Heart
It's very lovely and a bit sad. (It's a slash story)

002s4cdfDrowning in Footwear
Three words-Funny, sexy, adorable

002sag6bFlying Into the Black
Dark!Jim *and* Dark(ish)!Blair, so double the fun! It's a Sentinel/Firefly crossover, so the characters take on a Whedonesque edginess they never had in the original show. It's still our boys, but they've grown up in a much harsher world, and it shows.

Escape Me Never
Velvetwhip pens an heartbreaking story of a shattered Willow, a survivor of being Angelus' captive, who is taken under Angel's wing. Can he heal the girl he loves?

There's a kinkajou in the office and Dan's freaking out. What's not to love?

"Night Off"
very true to the character, interesting idea and the right mix of emotions
002sb806Rest Ye Merry
There aren't many dS gen stories about so it was nice to see this one appear earlier this month. It really follows on nicely from the canon episode but more than that it also builds on the things we expect from canon like the friendship of Fraser and Ray.


Dancing Fool
It's charming and hot and tender. Slashy spander from someone who knows that as hot as the sex can be, its nice to imagine a couple could enjoy a snow ball fight too.

Spike the Pumpkin Slayer
Spike is totally spot on. Gave me the giggles like nobodys business.

The Thing About Magic
The way Spike's emotion, just in those few words, is so tangable and real.

"The Man Beneath This Mask"
it's so realistic and beautiful, with a deep meaning behind pretty pictures
002sh5c5art for Man hunter
It's an astonishing piece of illustration.

002srdagSunrise, Sunset
Spike and Dawn had such a good friendship going that sort of fell apart. I think this is beautifully done, showing good insite not only into Spike who is the main focus of the piece, but also looking in on Dawn's point of view.


Past Life Regression
Blair revisiting his wild youth, what's not to love. Taking Jim along with him is even better. And the story is amazingly sensual in its details; I can smell and feel and hear everything that happens. And it's hot as blazing blisters.

Reaching Out
The author makes these guys funny, touching, blunt, vulnerable, and HOT, all at the same time. Great dialogue between the characters, plus great internal dialogue for Jim, whose voice sets the tone of the narrative.

Aw, man. Congratulations all winners! And thank you, lit_gal for your extra time and effort. It's really appreciated. I was talking to someone today about all the Sentinel fic she got into because of these awards.
2nd-Feb-2007 06:46 am (UTC)
There's a great crop of stories here, and congratulations on your wins! I think you've won in every round so far, which is a special thing. And if I can bring new readers and writers to my beloved fandoms, it's worth the lost sleep!
2nd-Feb-2007 08:03 am (UTC)
Wow, thanks! I truly didn't expect to get anything this time round - there were so many good stories in that category. I will wear my runner up medal with pride!

Thanks once again to lit_gal, for making it happen :-)

I had a question for you, can you email me? litgal1@gmail.com
2nd-Feb-2007 02:49 pm (UTC) - Wow! Wow! ::THUD::
I'm just ... floored.

I can't tell you how grateful I am, particularly since I've been flirting with the notion of retiring from ficwriting altogether. **is rethinking that** Thank you all so very much, and please know that I am still working on more of this story. *g*
2nd-Feb-2007 04:22 pm (UTC) - Re: Wow! Wow! ::THUD::
No, no, NO! No retiring from ficwriting is to be done by you! This cannot be! =>}

I LOVE Permeance! I SO want more! *G*

3rd-Feb-2007 03:28 am (UTC) - Re: Wow! Wow! ::THUD::
Knowing that I've kept you from leaving the world of fanfic is thanks enough. You are loved, and I hope you never disappear.
2nd-Feb-2007 03:29 pm (UTC)
Wow, those banners rock!

Thank you so much lit_gal for all your hard work on this and to everyone who took the time to nom and vote.

thanks again for running the awards. The link to "Escape Me Never" doesn't seem to work, though!
3rd-Feb-2007 03:30 am (UTC)
You're very welcome, and thanks for the heads up. Sometimes copy and paste screws up with memories for some reason. I have it fixed now.

Thanks for all the hard work and congrats to the winners!

I'm the one sexymermaid was talking about--I'm now a Sentinel fan. Yum.

If you need any help the next time around, drop me a line. I'd be happy to help--reading, compiling, whatever.

Keep up the good work!
3rd-Feb-2007 03:31 am (UTC)

A new Sentinel fan! And what a wonderful fandom to join.

I'll definitely keep your offer in mind for next round since I don't have as much on-line time now.
3rd-Feb-2007 03:48 am (UTC)
I'm reading Kith or Kin right now. And, I joined sentinel_thurs, too. What fun!

I spend too much time on-line, but I can usually find time for more. If I can plan ahead (timing wise) I can get a good hour a day, more occasionally. Give a holler when you've got timelines and I'll try to pitch in.

Thanks again.
3rd-Feb-2007 01:27 am (UTC)

Congratulations to everyone, and I'd like to say that I particularly like the format of this post, with the awards cheek by jowl with the story links and a review. Wonderful!
4th-Feb-2007 03:44 am (UTC)
I'm glad you like it. The goal is to help people get to the stories, so I tried to format it for quick reading.
5th-Feb-2007 09:02 pm (UTC)
Just catching up, so sorry I'm late - massive congratulatios to everyone; there are some stunning stories here.
13th-Feb-2007 10:08 pm (UTC) - WOW!!
I just got back from time away from home and a computer to discover Circle Dance won an award!!! Thank you so much for the nomination and the award - I am blown away by this!

Thanks, too, for all the hard work and dedication the ReRunners put into the whole shebang. I've discovered old and new favorites among many fandoms through this community.
14th-Feb-2007 02:13 am (UTC) - Re: WOW!!
Well, congratuations, and I'm so happy that you found a few new stories through the awards!
