Best One Liner
Shaking her head with an amused grin, she let herself lean down so that her toe was dragging the ground and pointed out, "You know, Smallville, when you're only off the ground by about three inches, I'd say that's more floating then flying."
He rolled his eyes and gently pulled her back up into his arms. "Just enjoy the fact that we're defying gravity here, okay, Lois?"
- En Tempus Veritas - briee

Lois glared at Perry, gesturing with one hand to Clark. "What can he do for me? Bale hay? De-tassel corn? Farm skills aren't any use at the Planet unless he's writing the agriculture report."

“Purple shoes. Who you kidding?”
- Making the Most of Your Quarter-Life Crisis - azrielle_jones
--
"I don’t need a goddess by my side; I only need you. And I don’t care what the rest of the world has to say or who they think I should be with. They don’t know you like I do, so if they don’t know that you’re worth ten Wonder Women, then it’s their loss. And, frankly, if people wonder think you’re lucky to have me, than the joke’s on them, because I wake up every morning thinking of how lucky I am to have you.”
- One Year Later: The Second Year of a Relationship - Jade4813

Lois rolled her eyes. “Come on, you aren’t freaked out by this whole blast to the past? I mean, that kid should seriously be wearing a sweater saying ‘spoiler alert’.”
- Past Imperfect - rayett
--
"As Lois Lane walked away, Clark knew. He knew it like he knew his own name. Like he knew every curve of her face. Every fleck of gold in her hazel eyes. This was it. She was the one."

-- Starred * stories are already locked in as nominees in the upcoming final ballot, and they will not appear on this run-off ballot.

Does this mean that we dont have to vote for them to end up in the final ballot and that we can use our vote to give the chance to other fics?
a writer nowkatshakespeare on August 27th, 2009 02:36 pm (UTC)
Yes. They are automatically on the final ballot. When you fill out the survey, they won't even show up as a voting option :)
lillianschild: secretlillianschild on August 28th, 2009 12:30 am (UTC)
Today I´ve had problems with my browser- including the time when I was submitting my ballots and I had to start the process over again. Let´s hope some of my votes didn´t end up being double.:(
a writer now: [sv] justicekatshakespeare on August 28th, 2009 08:19 am (UTC)
I think I have it set so that you can't submit and have it be accepted more than once. So we'll see. Thanks for letting me know though!
lillianschild: naughtylillianschild on August 28th, 2009 09:55 am (UTC)
You´re welcome.I don´t think my faves will get to the final stage considering the heavy Clois component and the fact that most of the Lex-fics were Clex, but it´s been fun to participate. Hopefully, next year other shippers will come on board.:)

Good luck to the authors and happy voting!

FYI, when I went in to try to read some of the stories to vote... pretty much any story on the Lois/Clark board "Divine Intervention" I can't get into - it requires registration in order to read the story ('access forum'). :(

Also, I wasn't paying and accidentally clicked through one of the pages that I'd put a first choice in but hadn't yet put the second choice down for... the survey wouldn't let me back in. Not that it probably matters that much, but I was a bit "argh" over it since I'd actually gone ahead and read all the stories in the category ;p. Are there any options on that survey to let the user go back in and edit?
a writer nowkatshakespeare on August 29th, 2009 12:34 pm (UTC)
Unfortunately you can't take the survey twice, so just keep that in mind next time for the final ballot on Sunday. Sorry about that.
Katt: SV: Watchtower onlinexenokattz on August 29th, 2009 12:27 pm (UTC)
Firstly, congratulations to all the other nominees! I feel so flattered to have m work included with so many that I love myself. YAY US!

Secondly, to the mods, I hope you got my email re: alternative links to my fics. My poor bandwidth took a hit this month, which is good because it means people are going there. ;) Anyway, I also ahve them archived at FF.Net
Bloodlines
Sunshine (the link to my website is illustrated)

Thanks ever so for putting this all together!
a writer nowkatshakespeare on August 29th, 2009 12:34 pm (UTC)
I did get your email -- the links will definitely be fixed for the final ballot, don't worry. And thank you!
Genevievegen717 on August 30th, 2009 11:08 am (UTC)
Congratulations to all the nominees!

I have to say I'm personally surprised, pleased, and quite humbled to be among you. Really, I never would have thought I'd be nominated! Wow.

I'd like to post a correct link to "Rooftop Meetings" since the one posted leads me to an error page.

Here goes:

Thanks so much!

february song: SV | Lois | Inspirationpsychme on August 30th, 2009 09:00 pm (UTC)
If I might make a suggestion... since extrasolar is credited as Interstellar in her nominated fics, it might be good to credit her as Interstellar in the Best Overall Author category as well, so that there's no confusion. Or you could credit her as extrasolar in the fic categories as well. :)
a writer nowkatshakespeare on August 30th, 2009 09:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up -- I definitely fixed that in the final ballot :) I appreciate it.
