And this means another chapter of You’re is up and ready for you to read. It’s NSFW. Just letting you guys know. Chapter 24 for those that are still confused between FanFiction, FictionPad, Ao3 and TWCS, who all got Chapter 23 today.
So what else is going on Wendy? Glad you asked!!! (Cause I know you wanted to!!) Our group did AWESOME in the Fanatic Fanfics!! Look below for the awards that we got!!! Congrats to all the winners!!!
Now you want to know how I did? You’re got 3rd place, and Every Dark Night got 1st in Crossover fics. I feel like I am boasting, but it is all due to you guys voting!!! Thanks so much!!!!!
That brings me to another announcement. While we waited for the awards to be announced slowly, Mistress Jessica1028, 4PadFoot, Gyllene and Magsmacdonald got to talking about awards. From this conversation, we actually moved forward and are going to have one for those in the TB/SVM. Yes, we know there are the Fangies, and we are not trying to steal the spotlight, but we liked the idea of a couple different contests around that we have been in. So You Want Blood Awards came about. And yes that pic is one of my infamous clicky links, cause 4PadFoot aka WordPress Whisperer has already got us a site!!!! We are gearing up for the contest and have the categories ready and so on. Nominations will open on May 1st, and will be one week long. So please pay attention while we play it up, and help make this a great year for our first shot at it.
Crossover Haven… OMG!! You people ROCK!!!! We have had a day of almost 1k hits and it has not really slowed down! And kudos to Bertie Bott for getting one of my favorite FanFiction Crossover writers to post on our site. For those that don’t know, Crossover Haven is a place for ANY and ALL crossovers to be. We are still working to suggestions put out on streamlining the site. Also, while the site has some crossovers listed, we did it to try to show that we will accept anything that falls in our guidelines. ANY crossovers will be considered, and only if you have incest, rape as being the main part of the story as in it being done to the main characters not as a past story point, or domestic abuse unless again, a story point. We wish to have some guidelines for the grammar, as in not all in lower case, or upper case and stuff like that. And for what is considered ok? Well, to be blunt, if one of the people who reads and sets up the stories has a question, then they talk to the rest of us to agree. Plus there is a judging panel in case there is any questions from the people submitting.
Why was the Crossover Haven brought about? Twilighted. They rejected ED saying that it had too many grammar issues. I heard other people complaining when I said something, and how that crossovers that are not Edward/Bella are rejected. So I came up with a place for them to be submitted and NOT have to wait a freaking month to just be rejected. Plus I really love crossovers. To read, write and just all around love looking at the ideas. It is how I got into True Blood, I read a Godric/Bella fic that I cannot find anymore. But it started me reading True Blood and here I am today.
I am true believer in also helping people get started and recognized for their unique skills. So yes, there is a lot going on, and I am still writing, making banners, character profiles, hosting challenges in our group, and doing everything I can to push forward to others what amazing talents people have. I’m paying forward the love and respect I have gotten from others. You guys are the one who encouraged me to chase my dreams, and so much has come from it. I wish to help others do the same…
So go forth.. read, write, and so on! Tell me of your talents, and I will showcase them as I can! If you wish to participate, or have ideas for things, come to the Facebook group and you will not believe the support you can earn with it. Its a great feeling when others see what you can do. Shoot, MamaKitty, my mom, is part of my group! And there is a current challenge there, and I even have the banner for the current contest done: (And to have it, you just need to submit a one shot!)
Enjoy! And I will see you soon.
