COA Awards

Up late and decided to check Twisting the Hellmough, and found that the results of the Crossing Over Awards are up. It turns out I have a little good news - Grounds For Divorce won Best Highlander Crossover - Buffy / Highlander, it's a prequel to a couple of other stories.

Unfortunately I'm not very impressed by most of the other winners this year; a couple of good ones, but some dreadful turkeys and a lot of mediocrity. I'm appalled at the results of both of the non-Buffy categories - I didn't expect to win, because there were some other excellent nominees, but none of them won either; in fact I think only one of the thirty or so stories I nominated and/or voted for won in its category. I think need to think carefully about whether I accept nominations next time around, I'm not sure I can take this seriously any more.

Commiserations in particular to mhalachaiswords, curiouswombat and speakr2customrs, all of whom deserved to do much better.

Later - OK, blame the late night for me not realising that mhalachaiswords won the Non-BtVS / Non crossover category - I was so focused on the crossover category, and on my nominees, that I really missed that one. MANY apologies!
