Fang Fetish Awards  

Fang Fetish Awards just announced the winners of their latest round and I picked up a few awards. This round was a rough one for the mods and I want to thank them, the other judges and the graphics team for putting in such a monumental effort and allowing me to participate (as a judge), as well. I'm especially boggled by the beautiful plaques that their new artist

amyxaphania created. Seriously. You guys have to see them. She illustrated the Rare Pairings section. I covet like whoa.

Off Route 17 (Buffy/Angel) 

The Hard Choices (Gen - Angel, Joyce. Buffy)

I also want to congratulate the many talented people on my flist with a special shout out to only_passenger for her win as Best Aithor of the round. Three outstanding fics won in their respective categories and I highly encourage you to check them out - Surfacing (Buffy/Xander), Grey (Angel/Faith), and Refuge (Spike/Buffy).

In general, there were a number of exceptionally good fics this round that I'd love to rec. There was even a rare slash pairing that majorly impressed me. Who would have guessed? But I do love to be surprised and have my biases shattered. It's very satisfying to read something you're sure you won't like and then you do. So, expect a post pimping the hell out this round's talent later today or tomorrow. There will be right-ups.

Thanks. I'm always thrilled about "Route 17" wins because it was a very personal story to me, and you and Pass.

Also, I had my first kickboxing class last nigt. It hurts all over... *whimpers* I feel like I can barely stay awake.

Thank you! I always laugh when I win for Angel fics. He's one of the harder characters for me to write. Like a big...void.

Hah! You see? That's why you get awards for him - you understand him so well. *g*

Thanks! :D

Uh, god. I really have to finish those drabble prompts at some point. My fic writing ability is made of so much fail.

Now you have to share what slash-pairing that was. I love odd pairings. :-) Also, CONGRATS! Well deserved that!

I'll try and do a write up this evening, but if you want to dive right in before that, the fic in question is Apples, Oranges and Pears by antennapedia. S4 Xander/Giles. Definately a pairing that squicks me like hell. But this fic was just so delightful and sweet. It also poses an interesting scenario and twist on canon and builds their relationship up slowly and believably. I believe the author also won runner-up as Best Author of the round.

It is an odd pairing, but not one that squicks me. Not many pairings that does. ;-) Some really good stories in that Rare Parings link you have there... Totally in love with the Giles/Xander/Spike story. :-D
