Challenge Winners  

*marches in followed by RedCouchAddict playing the bagpipes*

Yes folks it's time to announce the winner of our very first challenge! First, because I am a sappy moderator, I just have to say how much we all enjoyed the wonderful, cracky fiction this challenge produced: I have never been so proud and so disturbed at the same time.

And the winner is... )

So hugs and kisses to everyone who took part, voted or just enjoyed the cracky fun. Special thanks and cuddles to my co-Moderator RedCouchAddict for all her hard work and help.

Voting - now RL friendly!  
The Celine Laffort NDFUG Fic Challenge – Voting Time!

It’s moments like this that make me proud to be an Eskimo – you guys fully embraced the crack and therapists world-wide are rubbing their hands gleefully at the traumatised people flocking to their doors for help. Words cannot express how brilliant and evil you all are for writing and reading these stories.

So now it’s time to get down to the dirty matter of the voting!

All of the submissions are listed below (with handy-dandy links so you can refresh your memory). You have until the 30th June* to read through the stories, make your decision and cast your vote. The winners will be announced as soon as I can get the votes tallied and inform the relevant authorities to prepare for the fallout.

So yeah – how do I do that exactly?

The comments are screened and anyone can comment (*nudgenudge* lurkers!) so just click on ‘leave a comment’ and cast your vote for the best fic! If you are truly, truly torn and can’t pick just one you can vote for up to two fics and hope for the best! Since there were some truly original ideas presented I’d also like to hear your arguments for those who deserve honourable mentions. Voting is completely private and I don't plan to out anyone who votes for themselves but let your conscience be your guide.

And the nominations are... )

*On the 1st July when I get in to work (let’s say 9.30am British Summer Time) the voting will be closed forever and ever amen.

P.S. Love and hugs to everyone who commented on my fic and I haven't replied to. *points to niece* We enjoyed reading them but haven't had time to reply. (Is 18months too young for the Eskimo in training programme?)

Chrisitne is trapped in the land of  limited connectivity, this means she will not be posting the voting instructions until tomorrow. This also means that the deadline has been EXTENDED!!! (At least for one more day!)

Christine is also battleing some sort of crazy NO WI-FI bug, so HELP HER BY GIVING HER MOAR CRACK FIC!! !!!

You know you want to!
