I'm really happy that Walking Higher (The Childhood's End Remix) that I wrote for last year's Remix has been nominated in the Ludicrous & Far Too Breakable category over at White Knight Awards.
Walking Higher is my favorite remix, mostly because it turned out exactly how I wanted it to turn out and, for once, the words said exactly what I wanted them to say, and the characters did exactly what I wanted them to do. It is also the most difficult story I've written in technical terms, both because of its complicated structure and because of the tight time constraints for writing it.
Plus I turned out to be a strangely good match for kivrin, who wrote the original story Winter Garden, which is a good character piece in and of itself. If you like Giles/Xander, I recommend it.
Another reason why I'm thrilled Walking Higher got nominated is that it's one of those stories that I swear that not too many people have read. I'm thrilled that someone had read it and enjoyed it enough to nominate it.
I have been nominated in other categories for other stories for the WKA this year. While all of them make me happy, this nomination really thrills me to pieces.
Thank you so much for the nomination.
