A while back I was asked to be a part of the Original Character awards as a Judge. Now I’m a canon h00r but I also happen to love a really fleshed out original character. Naturally I jumped at the chance to be involved. Boy was I so HAPPY that I got involved! All of us judges were paired up based on certain likes/dislikes (like if we disliked Real Person Fic or preferred canon/AU over all human.).
I was paired up with the wonderful Bforqueen. You may know her as a Volturi and wolf girl. She wrote a little fic called Fallen Princess which tells the tale of Lucy, a hybrid of Volturi lineage. If you’re a wolf girl and want to see some really interesting ideas played with in canon then please go read B’s work. She’s fantastic. She’s even got a Demetri fic that is a companion to FP called Absolution.
Anyways I was nervous because I thought I was more of a vamp/canon lover than anything else. Well I proved myself wrong. The funniest thing is that Bianca and I agreed on so many of the nomination choices we made. I realized I’m much more of a wolf slut than I thought and that I really have a majorly inappropriate girl crush on Leah Clearwater. Huh who knew? Each of our three categories we had to finalize had many stories that we had to both wittle down to our top six picks and then choose six out of those twelve. This has honestly been one of the best experiences I’ve had with awards and I can honestly say, being a part of it that it’s one of the most fair and balanced awards processes I’ve ever seen. Kudos to Leanne Golightly and all those who thought up the rules and such.
Now I can’t really say which categories, B and I oversaw but I will tell you that our picks for those categories are really wonderfully written and most deserving of your time and vote.
All in all it was a pleasure working with Bianca and I think I made a good friend in her. She’s a total sweetheart and she gets the awesomeness that is the wolves and the Volturi.
To view all the nominees before voting begins please visit the link below and check out everyone’s fic. They all deserve massive amount of recognition in this fandom as OC’s are often overlooked and underrated! Happy Reading and be sure to leave these authors some love!
