Grace: Brandon; Evil Grinrepmetsyrrah on July 5th, 2010 10:46 am (UTC)
Is there any particular reason there's spaces randomly between some fics while others are together? Sorry if that's stupid question but it's late at night and I'm just wondering :P
saavikam77: Destinysaavikam77 on July 5th, 2010 02:45 pm (UTC)
Probably just typos, hon. I know Anissa worked her tail off putting this together. :)
dandellodandello on July 5th, 2010 10:14 pm (UTC)
LJ does strange things when converting Winword docs to its format.
Grace: Brandon; DC; Nerdrepmetsyrrah on July 5th, 2010 10:52 pm (UTC)
I thought it might be that :P Sorry, I should really make sure I'm not on holiday next time these go up because then I'll have something better to do than wonder about formatting all night :P
Anissa Roy: SMVA Promo 2anissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 06:12 am (UTC)
It's Word formatting. Also, LJ hates me. That's why I let Lois post all of our fic here. I just count myself lucky it didn't eat half of the nominees, or transpose them from one place to another.
Grace: SG1; Vala's going crazyrepmetsyrrah on July 6th, 2010 06:20 am (UTC)
Lol, I so understand- I have copy and paste the HTML from FF.net when I post my fics on LJ, it's not an easy process :P
routhfan1: clarkthinkingrouthfan1 on July 10th, 2010 01:51 pm (UTC)
*hugs* LJ doesn't share the love with me either.
nire135nire135 on July 6th, 2010 12:25 am (UTC)
the link for the best fluff nominee 'purely by accident' won't work. Livejounal says i'm not authorized to view the entry.
Grace: SR; Clark; Can't Talk- Reading ficrepmetsyrrah on July 6th, 2010 02:58 am (UTC)
Hmmm, I can see it- it must be members only, try joining the com?
Anissa Roy: SMVA Promo 1anissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 06:18 am (UTC)
The author actually locked that fic to be viewable only to members of the community, which I didn't know until you. You can join 12days_of_clois if you like, and I will ask the author to either unlock the fic or give us a public link.
Anissa Roy: Supermananissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 06:35 am (UTC)
The author fixed it - the entry is now public! It's also on her ff.net page here.
Ashley: SUPES | draped suitstarrylites on July 6th, 2010 06:57 am (UTC)
From the author...

Sorry, I forget that LJ automatically f-locks everything I post these days. Highly annoying.
Grace: Brandon; Evil Grinrepmetsyrrah on July 6th, 2010 02:57 am (UTC)
Just noticed the link for my fic Better To Hope is wrong, it's this:

http://repmetsyrrah.livejournal.com/118013.html

(there's an extra / on the end of the one you've got :P)
Anissa Royanissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 06:22 am (UTC)
Fixing it now ... I hope LJ doesn't decide to asplode on me.
Anissa Roy: SMVA Promo 1anissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 06:37 am (UTC)
*does a dance* Not only did I fix that link, while I was in there I fixed the formatting. Take THAT, Winword/LJ incompatibility!
perkulatorperkulator on July 6th, 2010 05:13 pm (UTC)
I just wanted to thank everyone who thought of my stories (both Eleven Pink Roses, and -30-, which I saw was in the first run-off ballot). It's wonderful to be among such august company. Best of luck to all of the nominees and now it's time to get caught up on some reading!
routhfan1: nerdrouthfan1 on July 10th, 2010 01:56 pm (UTC)
Have been so busy trying not to fall behind in the major fic Proximity, and dealing with first trimester pregnancy stuff (you know, nausea, fatigue etc...)and very recent pregnancy scare. So shame on me, *shakeshead* and did not have time to follow closely any of nomination stuff except for today. Just wanted to say a big thanks and a "whoah, someone likes my stuff???" to have nominated anything I've written. What amazing flattery that there's someone out there who gets as much enjoyment out of the process as I do.

And after cleaning the much neglected house I need to get back to that whole writing thing. That, and reading all these lovely fics to vote this time!
