The Kyro Fanfic Awards

The Kyro Fanfic Awards


August 24th, 2010

    First to the moderators, if this isn't allowed, I'm sorry, but I didn't see where it said it wasn't.  Delete it, or ask me and I'll remove it.  I honestly did check, but I could have overlooked something somewhere.  I also fully accept that this is not an excuse and take the blame that is due me if I've failed to read something important.

    Now to the rest of my friendly comm mates!  :-)  Many of you are probably familiar with the concept of land comms where the members compete in various activities to see who can gain the most points or reach a goal line first.  I thought it was a really neat concept when I first came across it but quickly found myself bored with the art competitions.  It's the fan fic I want, and all fan fic that I've geared this new land comm after.
    There are five teams -- one for comics, one for movies, one for TV shows, one for cartoons and anime, and one for books --, and each team will be striving to reach 5,000 points first.  Challenges will be both weekly (drabbles/short fics -- from 100 to 1,000 words) and monthly (longer fics -- 1,000 words and longer).  Other things may also be done to earn points as we go along.
    The URL is http://community.livejournal.com/fanficland, but there is a simple form that must be filled out before memberships can be approved.  The form is posted in the first message on the board and should be answered in a comment left to that message.  Please do not reply to this post if you are interested but post over at Fan Fic Land if you are as this is the only time I plan on bothering this wonderful comm with my own comm.

    I hope to see at least some of you there!  Thanks to the mods for this chance to share.  Thank you all for taking the time to read this post and for all the talent, work, and effort you already put into making the world of fan fic a bigger, brighter, and better place for us all!

Reality escapes her
Nominations for kyroficawards are now OPEN. You can submit your nominations one of two ways:

1. Leave them in a comment on this post (comments are screened)
2. Email them to yours truly at violet_fairychild[at]hotmail.com, with the subject line "Kyroficaward Nominations".

Please make sure you include the fic title, URL and author's name, as well as what categories you would like to nominate them under.



A few things to keep in mind:

Master lists of fanfiction can be found here and here.

You may nominate up to 3 fics per category. (I'm hoping to get a good mix of stories and authors this way.)

Take your time! Nominations are open for six weeks from today.

Authors may not nominate their own work.

Only finished fics may be nominated. For a fic to be considered finished, it must have been published to a public site or archive, a LiveJournal community, or a personal blog/journal in a non-private post before noms close on July 13th. For multipart fics, the last chapter must have been published before nominations close.

You may nominate a fic for multiple categories, but please do not nominate it in more than 3 categories.

And...that's it! Go forth and nominate! If you have any questions, please leave them in a comment on this post.

FAQ Post!

Pastede on
Obviously, I am human and have probably ommitted some important information or been a little too vague on the rules. If you have a question about the fic awards, ask it here and it shall be answered forthwith and posthaste. Or...something like that, anyway.
