First things first:

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

There's approximately two and a half hours before voting closes, so off you go. I did the last of mine this morning. And DON'T forget to vote in the non-fic categories - our own [livejournal.com profile] wiggiemomsi is up for Unsung Hero, and I can't think of a better person to get it.

Incidentally, I've started keeping track of what fics to nominate next time it's open to everything. Because otherwise I'm never going to remember.

In other news: Memage.

Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] unfolded73, though I'm sure it'll make the rounds. I did this once before and vaguely remember being stumped more often than not.

1.) Go to my master fic list and pick out a line or two from one of my stories. (Must be a full line, please -- no sentence fragments or speech tags or other such nonsense.)

2.) I will respond with which story of mine I think it's from.

3.) A drabble to anyone who stumps me. If you do stump me, feel free to request a situation and characters.
azriona: (DW - CoT Reviews)
I've started reading the fics nominated at the second round of the Children of Time Awards. No, I don't have prior knowledge of what's been nominated, save for what nominations I put in. No, I won't be posting reviews until the nominations are closed.

But in the interest of not burning myself out of fanfic entirely - which I did do in December, hence why my reviews for regular fics took a serious nose-dive - I'm trying to take these a bit slower. I've got one review written, and I'm halfway through another, and I'm slowly working my way through one of the longer, chaptered stories. I will not review fics previously reviewed which did not win - very sorry, Loved Verse - although I'll probably do a recap of them in their own post.

Point being: if you've been nommed, and the nom's not posted, or there's a particular fic on the list you'd like to see me review, please post it here. The title/author/link, that is. Not the entire fic. Egad, people.

Feel free to pimp this out, by the way. I do love when people point me in favorite directions.
azriona: (DW - Blue Smiling Nine)
As you know, the Children of Time awards have finished their voting, and posted their winners. And, as it turns out, the pages listing the nominees have been removed from the site - which among other things, makes it difficult to continue reviewing the ones I didn't get to review previously.

But, it also seems that the new round of nominations will begin on 1 January, and go through the end of the month, so perhaps this is just as well. There are just over 100 categories, all told (although not all are DW - some are Torchwood, or Sarah Jane Adventures), and even with each category capped at 15 fics apiece, that's quite a few new fics for me to review.

I cannot get them all in a month. Nor will I try. But I will try to review a decent percentage of them, and with luck, introduce you to stories you wouldn't have read otherwise. Which, after all, is the point.

However, for now - let's look at the Winners of Round One )
azriona: (DW - Blue Smiling Nine)
As you know, the Children of Time awards are up for voting. And as there's so many fics up in each category - and only one vote per category, I went through the fics in a mad attempt to figure out how on earth I should vote.

What follows is 20 days, 64 reviews, and one very, very tired reviewer.

I figured my notes might come in handy to the rest of you. )

Things I Learned:
--The cat really likes standing in front of the computer monitor.
--People who link from chapter to chapter on LJ are Love Personified, and ought to be given medals.
--For that reason, Teaspoon is easier for reading - especially the function where you can get the whole story on a single page.
--But LJ is nicer for leaving and responding to reviews.
--Out of all the fics I read, only one was hosted somewhere other than LJ or Teaspoon. Apparently, we DW folks like to stick together.
--You can increase the font size on Firefox with the little dialy thing on the mouse. Good thing, too, or I'd be in bifocals now.
--More people need to read [livejournal.com profile] ladychi's On Reviewing.
--The cat really likes standing in front of the computer monitor.

--The world does not revolve around fanfic. But maybe fanfic revolves around the world. )

Two things.

1. If you haven't already, go vote. There are now drop-down menus, but it's a good idea to figure out what you want to vote for first.

2. New Year's is coming up. Make a resolution - review more. Yeah, long-winded reviews are nice. But speaking as an author - we'll take anything. I don't care how many times reviewers tell me they liked a specific phrase. Every time I see it quoted, my heart grows. I grin, and my entire day brightens. Even if the review is to say the story's good - that you liked it - even if it's just a smiley-face. It brings joy. You bring joy, every time you leave a review.

There is no power greater on this earth, than to bring joy to someone. Make that your resolution this year, and review.

And with that....I leave you for a few days. I will continue to review the nominees, but not until after New Year's. I'm taking what I'm pretty sure is a well-deserved break from fanfiction (also, I'll be computerless until Sunday evening). Those of you who've left me comments and messages and such - thank you. I appreciate every cheer you've given me, more than I can say. I've seen them, but simply have not had the energy to respond. (I'll try to do so before we leave in the morning.)

I'll return, en force, but until then ----- good night.

Why You Should Vote For This Fic:

And away we go... )

Not that I'm normally superstitious (at least, not about the number thirteen), but I think this post broke me. (Not the stories in it, so don't go taking that the wrong way.) Unless I have a renewal of energy this evening, this post will be the last of the Children of Time reviews - at least, the last of the reviews before voting closes. I'll still go back and try to get the rest of the nominations ----- but after the New Year. At the moment, I don't think I should really look at another fanfic, for fear of seeing connections that simply aren't there.

Maybe, in an odd way, thirteen is a good place to stop. It's appropriate to Doctor Who, anyway, what with the thirteen lives he's got. And like the Valeyard, this last go did seem to go a little bit out of control. (Well, I think it did. We'll see if you all agree)

Assuming I have time what with packing and fudge and all, I'll write a final write-up this evening, because when all is said and done, this has been an absolutely amazing experience, even if I did lose my mind there for a few hours last night. And I do have some additional thoughts to share, but they'll keep for now.

That's today's post - yes, I know, five stories only, but they're all quite long. And my brain is seriously wearied.

(Also, I just realized I reviewed Passing the Torch twice. I can't decide if I should sigh, fall over laughing, or just go to bed!)

There are only three days left for me to post before voting becomes a necessity. I can tell you now that as much as it grieves me (and please do believe that it does grieve me), I'm not going to be able to get to everyone. If there's a specific fic you'd like to see done, please let me know which, and I'll see what I can do. Thanks, and much love to you all for reading these.
azriona: (DW - Headaches)
I'm at the point where I really, really don't think I'm going to be able to review every fic remaining in the Children of Time awards. This is, actually, fairly depressing. I really wanted to do it, and I'm just about sick that I won't be able to manage it in the three days I have left.

What's worse is knowing there are excellent fics on this list, and I haven't gotten to them yet. I hate to see them left behind.

So, here's your chance, folks. Of the fics I have left: which do you want to see most? The list under the cut is probably not altogether comprehensive - if you see a fic not here, and I didn't review it, and you KNOW it was nominated, please feel free to tell me. Don't tell me why you want it done - just give me the title and the author and a link, if you can. (Don't stress about the link.) Self-pimps okay.

Mind I'm still going to try to get every fic. (Well, every fic but one, for obvious reasons.) I really want to do it. But...I don't think I will. *sob*

What's Left )

Today, in a special edition of the reviews, we're going to plow through and do all of the drabbles. This isn't hard - there are nine drabbles nominated - and they're all by either Dave7 or Wendymr.

So really, the question is: will we have a Drabble King? Or a Drabble Queen?

Well, I had so much fun with the first one, I'll do a second.

As you know, the Children of Time awards are up for voting. And there's a lot of stories in each category - in some categories, more than 15 or 20. The problem is that you're only allowed to vote for one. Not your favorite five, or favorite three - ONE.

How anyone is supposed to choose ONE, is really beyond me.

Therefore, I am going through as many stories as I can, to tell you why you should give your one, all-important vote, to that story.

In Part One, I reviewed Chaos Theory, Six Stages, and Not One Line.

In today's Part Two, I'll review:

The Devil You Know by rosa_acicularis
Wolf Moon by Amberfocus

azriona: (DW - Ten Shrug)
So as I'm sure most of you are aware, the voting for the Children in Time awards has opened, and will be running until 25 December. There are lots of good fics nominated, in lots of different categories.

Frankly, I'm bamboozled.

For instance, in the Drama category alone, there are twenty fics up - and that's just the Doctor/Rose fics. Of these twenty, you have to choose one.

That's it. Just one. Not your top five, not even your top two. One.

Frankly, I don't understand how anyone could vote at all. I'm in that field, and I'm not even sure I'd vote for me.

Therefore, because I'm guessing that most everyone is just as confused as I am, I present the first batch of:

Today's Features Include: )

So, there - hope that helps a little. I'll do a few more in a bit, if folks find them helpful. Feel free to link.
