Hello and Welcome to DDO's Second Fan Fic Awards Ceremony!

Please DO NOT POST in this thread. If you wish to comment on the Awards as they unfold, please post here instead: http://www.debate.org...

Over the next hour I will slowly make the Awards announcements to keep up an atmosphere of suspense. I'll start out with some of the less highly anticipated awards, building up to the most prestigious ones. Awards will be announced in groups about every 15 minutes.

I would like to take a moment to recognize our judges, Wylted, BlackVoid, and Blade-of-Truth. YYW provided tie-braking votes (my fan fiction was not ever in a tied position). They dedicate a large portion of their valuable time to see that this competition was realized--thank you.

A list of the rules and awards up for grabs can be found here: https://docs.google.com...

Now, let me remind everyone of the entrants in this competition:

Fan Fiction

1. A Game of DDO, by Adam_Godzilla
2. DDO Burger King, by Thett3
3. DDO Game Over, by Donald.Keller
4. Heroes, by JonBonBon
5. DDO House of Cards, by Daytonanerd
6. Once Upon a DDO by EndarkenedRationalist
7. Survivor, by DarthKirones
8. The Walking Dead: Uprising, by Imabench
9. Untitled Fan Fiction, by bsh1
10. Warped, by RevNge

Short Fiction

1. 50 Shades of Gay, by Thett3
2. Arch Poobah Election, by Thett3
3. Guinan: A Short Story, by bsh1

Thanks, and good luck! I will start doing awards soon! I sincerely hope this is a fun experience for everyone. Let's get on with the show!
Live Long and Prosper

I'm a Bish.

AWARDS ANNOUNCEMENT 8

THE EXCELLENCE IN FAN FICTION AWARD

Winner: EndarkenedRationalist
Award Description: Awarded to 1-2 authors each cycle who have entered and won an award in at least two cycles, including the cycle when this award is given out; this award recognizes significant and meritorious contributions to fan fiction history, culture, and development on DDO through authorship. This award need not be given every cycle; an author may only ever receive one of these awards.
Reasoning: "Endark's Once Upon a DDO has become a DDO cultural phenomenon, and, as it's hefty awards hall goes to show, is an extraordinarily well-written piece of authorship. It is only right to commend someone who has popularized Fan Fiction on the site with his own eloquent contribution to the field with this award. Good writers inspire others to take up their own pens--or in this case, keyboards--to write as well; Endark is certainly proof-positive of this. Congratulations." - Bsh1
.
.
.
THE DISTINGUISHED SERIES AWARD

Winner: Once Upon a DDO
Award Description: Awarded to 1-2 series each cycle which have entered and won an award in at least two cycles, including the cycle when this award is given out; this award recognizes the importance, iconic nature, and significance of a series in DDO fan fiction history, culture, and development. This award need not be given every cycle; a series may only ever receive one of these awards.
Reasoning: "Once Upon a DDO has become an icon of the site--and emblem of what is great about fan fiction. It is well-written, entertaining, and beloved on the site. It spans DDO generations and has become a staple of DDO's fan fic diet. Surely, it is deserving of this once upon a lifetime recognition." -Bsh1
.
.
.
THE EXCEPTIONAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO FAN FICTION AWARD

Winner: Bsh1
Award Description: Awarded to 1-2 users each cycle--awardees need not be fan fiction authors--who have contributed significantly to the growth, development, success, visibility, quality, or longevity of DDO"s fan fiction history, culture, and development through advocacy, lobbying, or means other than authorship (authors can win, but not for authorship). This award need not be given every cycle, and a user may only ever receive it once.
Reasoning: "Outside of writing the fan fics themselves, one of the best things you can do to promote fan fics is by hosting awards for them, which brings them more attention, popularity, and encourages competition." - BlackVoid

CONCLUDING REMARKS

Sadly, the Awards are now over. I would like to point out, however, that everyone who entered was recognized in some fashion, either by winning an award or by being a runner-up. That is astounding, and speaks to the amazing literary talent present on the site. Congratulations to everyone who competed, and a huge thank you to the judges (BV, Wylted, BOT, and YYW) and to my co-host, Daytonanerd! It was a fun experience for us all! Hopefully we can hold another one of these sometime...

Thus, I declare this Awards Ceremony Concluded!
Live Long and Prosper
