Some time ago, I posted about being recognized with some awards for some tales that were nominated in the Middle-earth Fanfiction Awards.  I have participated in the MEFAwards for two years now, both as a nominated author and as a reviewer, and I really enjoy it!  Not just because of the personal gratification I get when people vote for my stories, but even more because it's a great way to find a lot of really, really excellent Tolkien writing, all gathered in one place.

The MEFAwards are about to begin again -- in fact, the season for nominating stories begins tomorrow, May 22!  I'm very excited to be a MEFA volunteer this year, in addition to being a writer and a reviewer.  ;-)  If you are interested in participating this year as an author, a reviewer, or even just a reader, be sure to read about how you can be involved futher down in this post!

Now -- to celebrate the new MEFA year, I would like to share my banners with you for those tales of mine which won last year.  (And if you are really curious, and if it's not too much bragging on my part, you can go look on my profile page for the banners representing those tales of mine which won in 2007).

The Best Sword Ever received Third Place in Times: Mid Third Age: General  



Feet That Wander
received First Place in Races: Cross-Cultural: General



A Great Evil Unmade received Second Place in Genres: Alternate Universe: Steward's Family

Obviously I was so busy admiring Boromir here that I didn't notice that the banner preparer had written 3rd Place instead of 2nd Place!  *is embarrassed* I shall have to see if she can still fix that, since I'm really pleased that this tale won 2nd place and I want to brag about it!  :-D



Fennas Haradren received First Place in Genres: Adventure: General





MEFA 2009 Nominations to Begin Soon )

See you at the MEFAwards!

The voting for the Middle-Earth Fanfiction Awards is complete as of yesterday, and I am happy to say I made my reviewing goal!  That's not to say it was a very high goal, nor that I reviewed everything I wanted to, alas!  Even though there was plenty of time for reviewing, I still got behind and sidetracked by the RW, and ran out of time at the end.  Thankfully, I can still read all those tales I didn't have time for, but I feel bad that I didn't get a chance to review them when it might actually count in ways other than general encouragement!

I had four tales of my own nominated and I am flabbergasted to learn that they all won an award!  *grins uncontrollably* 

Here's how I did in the 2008 MEFA's:

Fennas Haradren received First Place in Genres: Adventure: General
Feet That Wander received First Place in Races: Cross-Cultural: General
A Great Evil Unmade received Second Place in Genres: Alternate Universe:
Steward's Family
The Best Sword Ever received Third Place in Times: Mid Third Age: General

When I get my award banners for these tales, I'll post them so that they link to the stories themselves.  :-)

In other news, I totally have laryngitis.  I can talk, but I never know whether sound will come out or not.  It's quite amusing, actually.  I am now entering Day 4 of this burden.  It makes it hard to squee over my MEFA blessings when I can hardly eke out a squeak.  ;-)

I didn't say much about these awards this past year, because this is the first year I have ever tried to be involved in any kind of fanfiction writing awards, and I really didn't know what I was doing for a long time, lol! But I had some of my tales nominated this year, and lo and behold! Today I learned that some of them actually won!

Here is the link to the MEFA site, if you aren't familiar with what it is about:

As I said, I had several tales nominated, and I would have been very happy to have just gone home at the end of the day with the reviews I got for them. It was lovely to have my stories read by a wider audience than they've ever seen before, and to get such encouraging comments as I got, as well. So it was icing on the cake, so to speak, to learn I had won a few awards.

I received recognition in the following areas:

Lords of Gondor won 3rd Place in Genres: Alternate Universe: Incomplete



Waiting by the Water won 3rd Place in Genres: Drama: With Aragorn



Forcing a Path won Honorable Mention in Genres: Drama: The Fellowship



Is that cool, or what?  :-D
