I've managed to hire myself out as a banner maker, LOL. This ought to prove interesting!

[ profile] doggieearlover recently updated the "Featured Fictions" list over at InuYasha Fanfiction. To my shock and surprise, Memento Mori was added to the list! It proudly sits alongside a couple of my fave stories, Identity Crisis by [ profile] eggplantlady and Love's Smirking Revenge by [ profile] langus_fiction, as well as some Big Time Epics, such as Seven Feudal Fairytales. Talk about vaulted company!

To celebrate this update to the list, [ profile] doggieearlover decided to make "Feature Fiction" banners for all of the fics, and I offered to help her out. We're slowly but surely making our way through the list, and I couldn't stop myself from posting them here as well :)

Take a peek, you know you want to! )

I am also signed up to make banners for [ profile] iy_fanfiction, the LJ comm attached to the website. We'll see how that works out as the mods get the logistics of the comm up and running again, but I'm excited for the chance to brush up on my ol' banner-making skillz.

What a lovely surprise! :) The IYFG Best of 2008 banners are ready for pickup, and once again [ profile] forthrightly did an outstanding job. If you'd like to see all of the banners, click here. Meanwhile, I shall stand agog at mine:

Again, I send out a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has read, reviewed, recc'ed, nominated, voted, and otherwise generally supported this story. I know I say this every time, but the sentiment still rings true now as much as it did a couple of months ago - I had absolutely no idea it would (or could) ever be this successful. I took a chance on a drabble, and man, what rewards I have reaped! Thank you, one and all - none of this could've happened without you.

Congratulations to all the winners!

Winners List )

O.O Wow, I'd just like to take a moment and thank everyone who voted for Memento Mori. Given its competition, I was sure it had no chance...and instead it blew every other piece out of the water. Considering the last few weeks I've had, the smile that brought to my face was a very welcome one, indeed. Thank you, for the bottom of my heart - I really appreciate the support this piece has received, from all corners of the fandom :)

Also, many congratulations to the winners on my f-list: [ profile] knittingknots, [ profile] doggieearlover, [ profile] madmiko, [ profile] flametwirler, & [ profile] caitriona695!!

Polling Stats )

Now comes time for "Best of the Year," when all of the winners from the previous quarters are polled together to determine who wins the year, so to speak. I have one dog in this race - Memento Mori, for Best Oneshot - but considering the very steep competition its up against, I expect it to fail as spectacularly as it did this go around for Best Romance (Inu/Kag).

Best of the Year Polls )

...I never knew I had so many heavy-weights on my f-list! Wow!

Congratulations and good luck to everyone! :) Polling runs from March 1 - March 14.
