Look what popped into my my mailbox when I logged in. Winner in the Angst Category at the Love's Bitch Awards

::channels the inner Andrew:: I’d like to say thank you to my wonderful betas, especially bogwitch who’s having a rough time at the moment, to sockmonkeyhere for nominating me, and to everyone who voted a big, big thank you. ::ends inner Andrew channelling::

Many, many thanks to myfeetshowit for the words of encouragement to soldier on with Soul Searching I really didn't believe that anyone was reading and enjoying non-shipper fics. This has proved me wrong and lifted me out of the slough somewhat.

CDSers seem to have swept the board in round two. Anyone looking for a good Sunday read could do worse than mosey on over there; whatever your taste in fanfic, there's a fine CDS writer to be found in most categories.

Does this mean the Muse is back?

No! The bender he's on is extended to celebrate this award. He looks so pretty in the banner, it's gone to his head.

But the weather in France looks as though it's behaving itself next week, and barring new spanners in the works flapping in the hencoop in Dublin, we're heading boatwards next week. Just have to get a repeat prescription for the meds to replace the dwindling mega box I packed two months ago, change the dentist appointment booked for early August, and do a spot of shopping for provisions for the journey.

Right - off for a celebratory cuppa with the Sunday papers.

Congratulations to you! That is a GORGEOUS award. :)

Thank you.

*pets new shiny* It's very pretty.

Awesome! Well done, you!

And I'm keeping my fingers crossed you'll have a lovely, uninterrupted time on the waterways in France next week.

Thank you.

We're hoping for at least 6 weeks un-interrupted cruising. As we should have departed before the next round of the spyness selection, I wish you the best of luck for next Friday. Do you think it will be the knife and fork test? I'm unclear as to who is giving the presentation, you or the selection board?
3rd-Jul-2005 03:25 pm (UTC)
Congratulations! What is the pairing of the fic?
3rd-Jul-2005 05:42 pm (UTC)

No pairing. I don't write shipper fics. But I always make it clear that Buffy is Spike's main interest. I wrote Family before AtS ended and stuck as close to canon as I could. The sequel is more shippy.
3rd-Jul-2005 03:56 pm (UTC)
Well done!

When are you heading off? Would there be time for another look at chapter 12 or are you too busy?
3rd-Jul-2005 08:13 pm (UTC)

Send the chapter over and I'll look at it tomorrow. I'm full of a rather good celebratory glass of Vire Clesse at the moment so couldn't see straight to do it tonoght.

You have no idea how many edits that took to get the typos righted

Thank you.

Congratulations on the award and hope you finally make it to France this time!
3rd-Jul-2005 08:16 pm (UTC)

All the hatches are firmly battened and the only thing that will stop us this time is the sudden return of the hot weather. We've totally missed our Ozzie cruising chums who have been on the receiving end of on/off emails since the end of April. They fly out on Wednesday, the day we're planning to travel over.
3rd-Jul-2005 05:26 pm (UTC)
mmmmm, angst! ;-) CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
3rd-Jul-2005 08:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you.

I never thought of it as angsty. Eye of the beholder (or reader in this case) and all that.

Thanks. It's my first award, after two previous nominations that got nothing, so it's all the more special. And I'm not as prolific a writer as you so less chance of it happening again.

One thing that's puzzling me is the fact that "Twelve Days" hasn't even been nominated for anything. Is this because it's a joint-effort or that there are no holiday fic award categories? Family was my first fanfic and I thought my writing had improved considerably by the time I co-wrote Twelve Days. Just a thought to add to the awards - a good or bad thing? debate.

OH!!! YAY!!!!!!!!

Late to the party as ever, but...


Much deserved!

And there was me asking why you were celebrating.

Thank you!

And there was me asking why you were celebrating.

I thought you were back in the slough of despond and avoiding the Flist as therapy - either that or you'd had one too many glasses of red last night. Would you belive my one glass of white has given me pain in the kidney again?

Huzzah! Huzzah!

To top it all, it's the nicest banner I've seen for an award.
4th-Jul-2005 03:54 pm (UTC)
Hugs you hard.

*pets the pretty award* No-one has commented that Spike seems immune to sunlight in all the award banners for this round, but I wouldn't change it - not one little bit.
4th-Jul-2005 08:18 am (UTC)
Yay!!!! ::loud clapping:: Congrats to you, really, really well deserved. :)
4th-Jul-2005 03:51 pm (UTC)
Many thanks.

I love your icon. Is there an animated version of it out there somewhere?
4th-Jul-2005 08:51 am (UTC)
Congratulations! Hope you have a lovely time in France, too.
4th-Jul-2005 03:50 pm (UTC)
Why thank you.

France is usually anything but lovely. 'Interesting' is the word I use.
4th-Jul-2005 09:36 am (UTC)
Congratulations, hesadevil! I'm so excited for you, I've got a huge grin on my face!
4th-Jul-2005 03:46 pm (UTC)
I've got a huge grin on my face!

Mine's bigger!

*hugs you, spins you round faster and faster and falls in a giggling heap*
4th-Jul-2005 02:22 pm (UTC)
Wow - super-congratulations! Was a bit haphazard with my flist yesterday so sorry this is so late, but that's brilliant news. Off to read it!
4th-Jul-2005 03:48 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the congrats.

Off to read it!
It gets better as it goes along. It was my first ever foray into fiction writing and I was fortunate to find bogwitch as a beta. She prevented me making a huge faux pas with Angel in the opening chapters.
