Oddly enough, I've been trapped writing (see? not sick enough to stay away from the keyboard). nwhepcat's b-day story has me trapped. I actually wrote the closing scene and a few other scenes this weekend.
I never thought I'd write characters deliberately acting badly, but I am. *headdesk*
See? No wonder why I feel compulsory about the story.
It also goes a long way to explaining why I'm not sure how I actually feel about it. I'm deliberately writing people OOC because the situation I set up is so twisted that it's almost a defensive response on the part of the characters.
I'm not sure it's going to work, so I'm waiting anxiously for beta feedback on some of the parts I sent out. I feel like I'm treading on dangerous territory here. Too far, and I'm hacktacular. Not far enough, and it's nothing more but the same-old-same-old from me.
Either way, I'm not 100% sure I can post this to Living History's test list. They'll eat me alive. Then again, that just makes me want to do it even more.
Well, bastardsnow, remember that wish you voiced when you gave me FB on the last part of Living History? You really shouldn't wish for shit like that at all because it got stuck in my head. So I blame you completely and totally for this.
Anyway, I want to give serious props for whiskyinmind for running The White Knight Awards and getting the results out so quickly.
She's worked so hard to build up I Need A Parrot and to revitalize a Xander-centric corner of the Web. She's got a tough job because she's had to balance a lot of competing interests to make it work.
Anyway, congrats to all the winners! And a huge thank you to all the people who congratulated me.
Here's my results:
Best Characterization for Living History
Best Overall Author
Best Overall Fic for Living History
Best Friendship for Whisper
Thank you all who voted. And thank you whiskyinmind for running the awards.
