Last-minute swawards question!  
The flist knows all!

First: Thank you guys for nominating my fics to these awards, even when I was totally absent from the intarwebs! You all rock so hard. irony_rocks rocks extra hard, because her name says so and because she's spearheading the ficawards! (Bless her and keep her safe, omg.)

So I've been trying to categorize my nominated fics for this, and ran into a bit of a dilemma: What's a drama story, as opposed to all the other categories? (I suspect the answer is something along the lines of "Little Red? You don't know because you don't write drama. Go read anr's stuff and get back to me.")

Stealing anr's idea, I'm going to use a poll to help me find categorical homes (or excuses to remove fics from competish) for three fics I can't quite find places for. (Actually, the whole problem is just that I like "Atmospheric Composition" and want it to live somewhere, but I'm not sure where, and I'm not sure about the others.)

Suspension

Drama Story
1(10.0%)
Angst/DarkFic Story
5(50.0%)
Kink/PWP Story
2(20.0%)
Kink/PWP Story, but I like Knowledge better.
1(10.0%)
... seriously, Little Red, you don't know what "Drama" means!?
1(10.0%)

Veracity

Drama Story
2(20.0%)
Angst/DarkFic Story
1(10.0%)
Angst/DarkFic Story, but I like Suspension better
1(10.0%)
Hurt/Comfort Story
6(60.0%)

Atmospheric Composition

Drama Story
1(9.1%)
Romantic Story
3(27.3%)
Romantic Story, but I like The First Ten Years better
3(27.3%)
Since you don't know what "Drama" is, you can kind of put whatever you want there and we'll just roll our eyes.
4(36.4%)


I'd promise you more fic for helping out, but until I get my brain straightened out chemically, that's not likely. :-/ So I offer you the promise of EVENTUAL fic for helping!

Little Red: peanuts - cut that outmylittleredgirl on September 7th, 2008 07:09 pm (UTC)
... that did not help as much as one would hope. :)
Lannalanna_kitty on September 7th, 2008 07:14 pm (UTC)
heeeee
I never claimed I was being helpful, quite the opposite.

I dunno. if it isn't bad enough to be angst and it isn't fluff and it isn't action/adventure and it isn't some kind of alternate reality or some kind of smut and isnt long enough to be a novel, then it's drama?
Little Red: peanuts - rejection slipsmylittleredgirl on September 7th, 2008 08:27 pm (UTC)
I think it's probably something like that! If it is Engaging and Intriguing and Emotionally Draining, but Not Really One Of Those Other Things, it is Drama.
Lannalanna_kitty on September 7th, 2008 08:59 pm (UTC)
process of elimination FTW!

"First 10 Years" will probably always be my favorite of your stuff. One of my favorite Sparky stories of all time, definitely.

That didn't help either, did it? *hides*
Little Red: sga - sw happiness - jeepnymylittleredgirl on September 7th, 2008 08:32 pm (UTC)
No, it did! :) Because that story was also nominated, and that story pretty much can't be anything except romance, so... somehow that's all = helpful.

Have you written any Sparky lately? Whenever I get the hankering for SGA fic, I always think of you first and go poke around wraithbait. :) (It's my sockpuppetly duty, aside from your being awesome.)
miera_c: funny facesmiera_c on September 7th, 2008 08:58 pm (UTC)
I've written very little lately. :( What has come out has frequently not been Sparky but other pairings (I dunno why Elizabeth/Cam Mitchell fascinates me so. Though it remains irony_rocks fault).

I am attempting some of the prompts from the other day.

Last Sparky I wrote before that was for the LCF battle here. And then a small ficlet for qwirky here. And at least two of the prompts from this post were Sparky. First and last, actually.

Ooooooooooeeeeeee I must check out all these linkies when I am not at work! I have decided that even though They Read My Mail And Watch My Computer And Everything, I may answer eljay comments on a day when I've completed all my projects before 8 a.m. But... it might take me another day or two to get up the gumption to read fic at work when there's chance of pr0n, as there is with you at times. ;)
miera_c: john elizabeth wipemiera_c on September 10th, 2008 05:03 pm (UTC)
Um, yeah. Nothing explicit but except for anr's fic and the "beets" fic from that very first link, all of them contain NSFW stuff. :\
Little Redmylittleredgirl on September 10th, 2008 05:12 pm (UTC)
WOE! But, um, YAY for later reading!!! :-D

I forget how many fics you've been nominated for, but just so it puts your mind at ease, we've actually had to expand the categories because we've just had so many submissions that they were getting overcrowded! *feels pride*

AU has been split into AU and Alternate Reality.
1. Alternate Universe – putting characters into situations totally different from canon. The setting and roles are completely different from what we see on the show. Pirateverses, etc.
2. Alternate Reality – are universes slightly different from SGA canon... more as a possibility resulting from a change in the canon episode timeline. For an example, if in Conversion, what if Elizabeth was the one infected with the retro-virus, not John, and that led to a whole different set of events from what we saw onscreen. Also, mirror!verses go here.

PWP/Kink category has been split.
1. PWP – "Porno Without Plot", or, alternately, "Plot? What Plot?" Refers to a fanfic in which nothing of importance occurs except sexual activity between the characters. It’s generally the tamer of the two (against kink). Usually just “normal” smut.
2. Kink – generally, AMTDI, bondage, whips, blindfolds, handcuffs, dirty talk, doppelganger, gags, masturbation, voyeurism, exhibitionist, etc. Any abnormal sexual conduct.

Angst/Dark has been split into two categories. (I still don't remember wtf I was thinking when I combined that one.)

So, you've got more choices. Erm, which may or may not freak you out more. But! At least the likelihood of you competing against yourself is smaller.

*smoochies to you*

Your fic awards are a success already! Good job for you!!!!

I think more choices doesn't necessarily help me. I closed my eyes and hit buttons and mailed it back to you on Sunday, so don't even remember what I clickied. Hopefully it was something useful. :-/

ALSO, OMG, YOU MADE ME DECIDE BETWEEN VERACITY AND SUSPENSION?!! MEAN!

Those two are my favorite of yours. Suspension is what I consider the best PWP fic out there, and I've read Veracity more times than I can count.
Little Red: sga - sw happiness - jeepnymylittleredgirl on September 10th, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
You're so cute!!!!! This delights me tremendously. You're adorable! *squeezes you*

And thank you! I've been in dire need of an ego-petting lately. ;)

*sniffs air* I'm at work and smell something very sweet baking in the kitchen or somesuch. ... who's making creme brulee-smelling things at 8 am!?
Andy: yellow_heartankareeda on September 7th, 2008 11:08 pm (UTC)
Your fics are ♥!
Little Red: sga - sw happiness - jeepnymylittleredgirl on September 10th, 2008 03:27 pm (UTC)
omg, you are more love! <3 <3 <3 to you!

*clings and pets*

Um, how am I supposed to vote if there is not "OMG it's a poll!!!11\!" option?
Little Red: aw - cj/d *hugz* - natushkamylittleredgirl on September 10th, 2008 03:27 pm (UTC)
I didn't want to give the other people whose opinions I needed that option! Because given the chance, most people will click that box. ;)
anranr on September 9th, 2008 11:17 pm (UTC)
*feels bad that it's too late to vote anymore*

But I'm sure you managed to slot them all into the appropriate categories!
Little Red: sga - sw gamble everything - anrmylittleredgirl on September 10th, 2008 03:28 pm (UTC)
OMG, and I couldn't even decide on yours due to my lack of category understanding and didn't want to throw the results by replying!!

I slotted them somewhere in a timely fashion -- that's close enough in my world. :)
