2010 SEXYS!  


Last year the lovely and insane [info]graspthethorn created the SEXYS (SPRING EQUINOX AWARDS FOR THE XENOPHILIC YOUTH - please don't ask me about the name) to celebrate fanworks for VL and AWZ. Even though it's a little late, I couldn't let this spring go by without carrying on this fine tradition.

Only I'm moving it over here to [info]no7_awz and leaving VL out of it. Because I'm selfish and only care about AWZ. Does anyone mind? No? Awesome!

TIMELINE STUFF
I'm moving right now, so I'm going to keep this kinda flexible, hahahaha.

NOMINATIONS: OPEN NOW UNTIL APRIL 26TH
VOTING: MAY 1ST - MAY 14TH
AWARD CEREMONY: MAY 21ST OR AS SOON AS I CAN GET EVERYTHING TALLIED AND BANNERS MADE (HAHAHA I WILL NOT BE MAKING AS MANY BANNERS AS LAST YEAR, JFYI)

Dates may change if I'm attacked by a wild swarm of bees or kidnapped by circus folk, but everything will get done and tallied and posted no matter what!

RULES AND STUFF

Right now you guys just need to nominate so we'll concentrate on that.

YOU CAN: Nominate your own stuff if you wanna.
YOU CAN: Nominate as many pieces for each category as you want. If you can't pick between 5 fics for BEST DERO FIC then nominate them all!
YOU CAN'T: Nominate the same fic/art/vid/other for more than five categories. Chances are if its really that awesome and needs to be up for every category, someone else will nominate it
YOU CAN'T: Nominate anything created before April 2009 because more than likely it was nominated during the first go around. And this is the 2010 SEXYS. If you really think something was overlooked, ask me and we'll talk.
YOU CAN: Suggest categories I forgot and I'll probably add them to the list as long as they aren't something like "BEST FIC TO FEATURE MIKE BLEEDING FROM THE HEAD"
YOU CAN: Shill this out far and wide! <3333333

ETA: Please email all nominations directly to me if possible. Comments are still screened just in case, but email would be preferable. Thank you!
TO NOMINATE: Comment to this post or Email your nominations to me at shellydkitty [at] gmail [dot] com with the following:

CATEGORY:
TITLE:
AUTHOR/ARTIST:
LINK:

No one will know what you nominated except for me of course, hahaha, but I'm good at keeping secrets. ;) You don't have to nominate for every category, and you don't have to send all of your nominations in at once if that helps!

So without further ado, THE CATEGORIES!

BEST ONE-SHOT (OVER 1000 WORDS)

If for some reason there aren't enough pieces nominated in certain categories, I may end up combining, but I'll let everyone know asap!

QUESTIONS? I'M SURE I FORGOT STUFF.

ALSO, I MADE A BANNER (YOU DO NOT NOTICE HOW SIMILAR IT IS TO LAST YEAR'S SHHHHHH) FOR SHILLING PURPOSES. I WILL MAKE MORE SOON BUT IF ANYONE WANTS TO MAKE SOME TOO, I WOULD NOT COMPLAIN. XD

Just one question before I start nominating: Even though this is being held at no7, and therefore primarily for EKP'ers, but if some of these eskimos also watch VL, can they still nominate for that show, or is VL blocked from the SEXYS this year ;)?

Yes, it's just for AWZ fanworks this year. Although if someone wanted to, they could totally do a VL version on seifen_slash! I just felt like if it was done again for VL and AWZ, then GZSZ should be added since that's also covered over there now, and I just don't have time to deal with that many categories/voting/banners/etc.

I'm going to leave your comment unscreened just in case anyone else has a similar question. :)

You know when Daffy Duck would escape and jump in the air with a seriously manic celebratory "woo-hoo-hooo-hooo!"?
That's ALL that's going on in my head right now :P (it's making work a bit difficult but who cares!!!)

You are 12 shades of brilliant and reaching through the cables I squish you silly and kiss you a thousand times! But don't you go taking on everything yourself - if I can be of any help just tell me, I shall even attempt to master this silly drawing programme for you my darling, whatever you need! (oh and yes, I agree with you on the AWZ only front)

*mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah* *mwah*

Ahahaha, awesome!!! *sparkles and covered with kisses and beaming and bouncy!* I will definitely definitely ask for help when I need it, yes, lol. But for now, SHILL IT FAR AND WIDE, YES! (Except to people who might wank that I left out VL this year.)

Also, I just realized because you're a maintainer here (and probably this applies to [info]redcouchaddict as well) that it won't automatically screen your comments, so you guys should email me your noms directly so no one sees! XD

geekchick1013: AWZ Eh?[info]geekchick1013 on April 14th, 2010 07:37 pm (UTC)
Ok, I'm still frightfully new to this FanFic thing, but only have one question... what exactly does PWP mean? I have an idea, just want to make sure I'm not too far off-base before I start my nomination list. Also, is NoLimits the main fic archive, or is there somewhere else anyone can recommend looking for stuff to voraciously consume nominate? And for that matter, is there some regular place where people post their fanvids (beside just doing a YouTube search)?

Ok, done newbie-ing for the moment.

Danke, schatz! *mwah!*

PWP = Porn without Plot, or Plot, what, Plot? Basically a story which has the sole purpose of sexytimes.

And as far as archives...yes I suppose NoLimits would be the main one, but I don't think that's the only place to go. I know I don't put most of my stuff up there because I'm lazy (lol) and I'm not sure if Aldi or Lil does either, though I know they have some stuff up there. So I imagine not everyone archives there. You could also check out seifen_slash on LJ for more fic. There's been a couple short ones recently from someone who's just started the storyline that I really liked!

I don't know of any central fanvid place either unfortunately. :/

THANK YOU! I shall go fic-hunting all over LJ & IJ and do a thorough search on YouTube.

[info]derolover on April 22nd, 2010 09:27 am (UTC)
So just that I get this right.
I can write a fic, put it on my LJ or IJ and then send you an email with the link to that story?

(I still haven't figured out how this journal here works. O.o)

You can nominate something you've written as long as its posted before the nom cut-off date (April 26th). It can be posted anywhere on the internet, as long as it's publicly accessible.

But this isn't a fiction challenge per se, it's more about nominating existing works that you like or are a fan of or that you think deserve recognition (which of course can be your own stuff too).

But hey, I'm not gonna complain about new fic it encourages! I just hope you take some time to nominate other people's work as well!
