(I'll add an award every so minutes)
Our first ever winners thread folks! First a huge thanks to everyone who voted and nominated their favourite fics, if you didn't then shame on you! To all those who didn't win the categoreis they were up to there is always next year, so keep writing to the best of your ability!
Now we are going to run through the winners and runner's up of each category and pretty much sum up why they won the award.
Fic'r of the month
Writer of what is arguably the most popular Fan-Fic series on the vine (Asguardian, Midguardian) TypingKira has contributed to the Fan-Fic board with more than reading material. Kira manages to post constructive criticism on most stories and is generally a nice, kind viner who keeps spirits up. She has created several other threads like the build me a playlist contest, rules thread, the Tips Thread, reviews thread, a thread for new and old writers alike and a thread for writers to interact with each other and seek advice. All in all, a beloved Fic'r! JOINT WINNER: primepower53
A quick comment from TypingKira:
Oh my GAH! Holy cow, I can't even. . . I seriously can't even. . .
An energetic member of the Fan-Fic board, primepower always has a new chapter out. Creator of the I NEED COMMENTS thread When he's not writing he's reading your work and offering you words of encouragement. His works on the vine include, 'Marvel Genesis: Iron Man,' 'Ultimate Superman' and 'Ultimate Batman.' He had this to say:
THANK YOU SOOOO MUUUUUUUUUUUCH! :D:D:D
The Impersonator is someone who always manages to comment on your Fan-fic with a compliment or some words of improvement. His work ethic is something to admire, he currently has over 30 chapters on a wolverine fic that's part of a project that only started a month ago
For her second award, TypingKira is one of the best writers of the vine overall but best for the months of June/July as voted for by you guys! Her writing prowess can be viewed her on the vine in works like Midguardian, The Reagan Administration and Aliens.
Mechanical_Ape is a close second to TypingKira as best writer, his works so far include Winds of Change, Ascendance and a on-shot Flight Three from Broxton.
BEST NEW WRITER
InnerVenom's 'SYMBIOTE' and 'World War Symbiote' fics have been popular series on the board. His first 'SYMBIOTE' currently has 171 views and 40 posts that's great for a first issue. His works are usually written in incredibly detailed, well written scripts. Before we leave, a quick comment from InnerVenom and away we go!
Thanks for voting me, guys!
Again just missing out on top spot, Mechanical_Ape is a great writer and Ascendance is definitely one of my personal favourite series on the vine.
To fill a little more space because I'm running out of things to say, here's a quote from Mechanical_Ape!
I've been writing since I was a little kid because I find it incredibly fun. It still is one of my favorite things to do... As for why I started writing fan fics recently, it's definitely because of TypingKira. She convinced me to do it because of two reasons, even though she had no idea she was doing it at the time... So basically, I just do it because it's fun. I write all kinds of things that no one will ever read, simply because I like to write. It doesn't really matter to me whether anyone reads or likes my work. It's certainly nice, but I'd write regardless of that.
Fan-Fic of the month
Midguardian Special: Grief by TypingKira
Picking up her third award, TypingKira's Midguardian Special deals with the grief (duh!) caused by Anthy's death at the hands of Karnilla, we see the reactions of Thor, Balder, The Raiders and her father Agent Martin. Beautifully written and overall a great chapter to the Midguardian series.
Flight Three from Broxton by Mechanical_Ape
A great Fic. That pretty much sums it up, The warriors three are brilliantly written and I love the part when they start looking for seats. I mean if the following line isn't one of the best things you've read you obviously have finished all the books in your own personal library.
The ticket agent turned bright red as Fandral released her hand. “No, thank you,” she said with a happy smile. She watched Fandral as he rushed down the walkway, her gaze lingering on his rear for just a little too long.
Midguardian by TypingKira
Great Series. The follow-up to Asguardian, Anthy is shaping up to be a strong, fierce young woman with all the might of Thor and none of the girth of Volstagg. Still tussling for Balder's love only now it's becoming more dangerous, fights with Karnilla and Enchantress and even being locked up and visited by her own daddy. Can Anthy overcome all life's obstacles and win Balder's love. You never know, she might already have...
Ultimate Batman by primepower53
The only other one up for vote in this category (thread got rid of some of the fics up) Ultimate Batman is a great series in it's own right. Even though it was the only other up for vote it still did fairly well. Unfortunately I haven't read it regularly so can't really comment on the plot that well.
BEST NEW FAN-FICWINNER:
The 199th Mutant by ghostrider fan1
Follows the story of Avengers Academy's newest member, Ryan Rinzai who flipped over a mountain with his strength. I certainly wouldn't want to go there! Our favourite Rider Jacob makes a few appearances here and there, specifically in the first chapter. A good series all-in-all and one that won your votes.
Project X: The birth of Wolverine
Already past 30 chapters, unlike former work Freaks The Impersonator has written this Marvel: Genesis project as a story in first person. Very interesting take on Wolverine's origin, a must read for any wolvie fan! Great series...bub.
Amber Therese Martin/Anthy/Asguardian
What can I say about Anthy, we've seen her grow from an insecure, scared little girl in Asguardian to the fierce, confident warrior in Midguardian. Obviously she still suffers from everyday problems like daddy issues, crushes and fighting Ares but who doesn't?
-Batman from Batman: Punishing Gotham by Project_Worm
-Supergirl from Ultimate Superman and Ultimate Supergirl by primepower53
-Reagan from The Reagan Administration
Best Supporting Cast
WINNER:Midguardian by TypingKira
This award wasn't just for original characters brought into the fold but also for how well a writer writes existing characters and for me Midguardian sets the bar high for both. Not only are there brilliant original characters in the raiders but TypingKira also writes Thor, Balder, The warriors three and other Asgardian characters brilliantly.
Red X by HumanX
Another great series, Many of the characters seen are HumanX adaptations of characters from the various DC Comics animated series [ok I just stole this from oscura ch. 13 but it sums it up well!] His writing is great and the dialogue is always written well!
Last but not least......the badges!
Since we can't give out trophies I decided to take the RPG awards idea and hand out picture thingies that the users can then put up as their background/about me pictures and what not.
