I just received this email:


You have been nominated for Outstanding Fandom Contribution for your LJ community Bloodclaim at the Shades of Grey Awards.

This award is based on popular vote which will open on June 15.

::is stunned::

Thank you, whoever nominated me, and thereby bloodclaim, for this award. I'm sitting here all gob-smacked and giggly and trying not to bounce too hard cos this office chair is nearly five years old now and I never put it together properly in the first place. ;)

So, here's a clicky button (even though the vote isn't open yet) and I'm going to try and figure out how to put one on the journal page proper so it's there to be petted every time a page is opened. *g*



(Yes, I'm shamelessly crossposting because, well, see above! Squee!)

Yay! Well done, you! Hope you'll remind us nearer the time, because brains like sieves, etc.

darkhavensdarkhavens on April 30th, 2005 02:34 am (UTC)
Hee! Thanks! And yes, there will definitely be a reminder - I marked it in Lotus Organiser because sievebrain is widespread. ;)

Hi! I'm the guilty party and it's all your fault because you posted kindkit's link to various award sites, because you've been writing such excellent fanfic and for getting inspired to create Bloodclaim where the best of Spander fanfiction is posted for us to enjoy. I'll be sure to cast my vote on the 15th.

Re: Guilty

Thank you so much! I got very hyper when I received the SoGA email, and the fic I was working on was completely forgotten while I went to squee all over LJ. Eventually I calmed down enough to finish it, and next up, hopefully, is the next part of Grungefic. I have that in my sights for this weekend if Spike will just behave himself while on top of a naked Xander. ;)

Re: Guilty
I realize it's very hard to control a Spike on top of a naked Xander (it's all that vampiric strength and stubborness) but some more chapters of "Grungefic" (that's more not just one) would make a really nice thank you (hint, hint).

Well, one down, and more to come. ;)

Oh Dearest Mod,

I have a question - I am starting weekly challenges over at my group windles_orbit and I wanted to know if I could anounce them at Bloodclaim? They're an open fandom challenges and I'd really like to see what some of the Spander writers could come up with.

Each week (on Wednesday) there'll be a differnt prompt - odd words, song/movie titles, objects, etc.

May I? Just let me know,
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 30th, 2005 01:14 am (UTC)
I'd rather you make a single pimp post about your community and the way it's run - open fandom, challenges, etc - and then if people want to join they'll do so. Thanks for asking! :)
werewindlewerewindle on April 30th, 2005 01:19 am (UTC)
That's what I ment, not weekly pimps or whatever. (@_@ Need more sleep) Thanks. I'll annouce Wednesday when the first challenge starts.
