Of fic awards and karma

OSer #1: "Lots of the fic had been put into the wrong categories. There was ship in the gen section and gen in the slash section -- for all I know there was slash in the ship section as I didn't bother reading that far."

OSer #2: "Yes, there was quite a lot of that this year. And some of the major winners in the gen category are definitely ship stories. I'm surprised the authors didn't tell the committee to move them to the correct category. Especially because at least one of the authors is *on* the committee. Then again, I know that some of the gen authors whose stories were incorrectly listed in the slash category *did* request that their stories be moved to the correct category and they were either denied or it didn't happen."

I think what she means to say is that the winning stories were written by known shippers.

Unless, of course, they featured Jack and Sam in the same room at any one time without one loathing the other.

And I don't see them complaining about ELG winning best so-called "team" fic when the story is, at the very least, pre-slash and should go in the slash category.

Nor Lex winning "best Teal'c story" when "Threshold Missing Scene" actually revolves around Daniel.

Of course, OS has never been particularly smart when it comes to removing the beam from their own eye before pointing out the speck in someone else's.

Although, come to that, OS and its denizens have never been particularly smart, period.
well, i do have sam and tealc' talking to each other.....might be ship, since we all know if any male/female talk to each other it's a precursor to sex.

and jonas....well he does think about the others, and that jack and teal'c care for sam...and i guess well you know again, those pesky het ships where they can't care about each other without CARING WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE about each other.

sour grapes make sour whine.

if they really want to take issue, then they should either start their own awards or get over it.
