Should we really be saying who we voted for ?

Err what would be the point of thread if we didn't?

Abare Killer
09-10-2005, 11:43 AM
:abakill And what's wrong with saying who we voted for? I see no problem with it ^_^ :abakill

09-10-2005, 11:49 AM
But it would be easier if it was a public poll. Still, it's nice to just let it out, and let people hear your opinion.

09-10-2005, 11:57 AM
Well, it's obvious what I voted for. Lots of good fics, but I have a pairing to market.

I loved Christmas Shoes so that is what I voted for. Even though it looks like now Element Storm is going to win.

09-10-2005, 02:23 PM
I vote for Beautiful Fall..because I like the fic! Well...actually, I like a lot of stories on the list. So, it was decide by rock, paper, and scissors with my muse.

Abare Killer
09-10-2005, 04:13 PM
:abakill Wow, you actually liked that fic enough to vote for it? I thought it was really lame lol Thanks, though ^_^ :abakill

And I have a certain Blue Ranger to market, hehehe! :D I mean, I hope I get some votes here. Does my writing suck THAT bad? :p

09-10-2005, 09:00 PM
Stories don't suck, there are just better ones. :D

And people have their preferences. You're a good writer, Sarah. A little Mary-Sueish in your series, but you really know how to write Billy.

Jud-I said the same thing last month and got the same thing.
I know I'm gonna lose again, oh well I'll live there are more important things...

Um, excuse me? DO NOT mention that name in my presence. THAT is an insult. How is Sarah Mary Sue? I never mentioned anything regarding talents, etc. I did that to AVOID getting lumped into that "catagory" *shudders*

Sorry, but this whole MS thing really gets under my collar because of stupid militant E/J-ers in the GB fandom. That's why I am VERY BITCHY about this.

09-13-2005, 08:02 AM
I said a little, as in your self-entry into your own series...no offense...I hope. Hey, I've seen worse.

Sarah Cranston
09-13-2005, 04:37 PM
Are you referring to how she was introduced in "Destined Encounters?" :confused:

Sarah Cranston

If it's because of how Sarah's physical features were described(her hair), I often use the physical feature of a celebrity(ie, Mariah Carey) to give merely an idea of what the physical features of my character looks like. It's to help form a mental picture in the reader's mind. Thus, Sarah's hair is similar to Mariah Carey's(curly, but not spiral-curled as Mariah's was in 1993), for the era the story takes place in(which was of course, 1993).

anywho..uhm.....Ever notice how a percentage of the writes end up competing with themselves ?

Chelle's in there twice, dan's in there twice. tho' sometimes dan will all but dominate the thing O_O

09-16-2005, 03:47 AM
I understood babe, and I don't know why Dan's usually doing that...

King of Kirommy
09-16-2005, 04:13 AM
cause he's an attenion whore? ...that or people just nominate different stories of his for no reason other than he's dan?

Abare Killer
09-16-2005, 06:50 AM
:abakill Because Dan's the greatest writer on PRN? ^_^ And, I have two fics on here two, but one of them sucks, and I can't imagine why anyone nominated it lol :abakill

09-16-2005, 06:55 AM
I have a fic on here and I don't understand as to why Beth nominated it and voted for it ><

Abare Killer
09-16-2005, 07:35 AM
:abakill Duh. I nominated it and voted for it because it's a great fic! Why else? ^_^ :abakill

Congratulations to Abare Killer, your story "Power Rangers Element Storm" is the Fanfiction of the Month of August!

Nice job, and keep up the good work! I look forward to seeing your name, along with the names of your fellow authors, once again in next month's FFotM!

09-18-2005, 03:19 AM
Great job, Beth! One vote for me. I'll do better next month.

09-18-2005, 10:46 AM
*groans* Why is it every fic I vote for is destined to lose?!

09-18-2005, 11:11 AM
My gifts to everyone:

09-18-2005, 11:14 AM

Congrats, Beth.

:abakill Thanks, Jorge! And thanks to those who voted for me. I'm really shocked to have won. I didn't think my fic was that good, really, but apparently it's not as bad as I thought. Will Turner said in Pirates of the Caribbean, "A craftsman is always pleased to hear his work is appreciated". Well, in this case, "An author is always pleased to hear her work is appreciated". Thanks again to those who nominated and/or voted for my fic.

Congradulations to everyone who was nominated. There were many great fics this month, and I wish all of you the best of luck next month ^_^ :abakill

09-19-2005, 03:02 PM
Wow...I feel special. Best part, it is blue. :cool:

Hey, at least you get nominated. I don't even get that...even tho' i only have two fics O_O
