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."

*breaks down into hysterical laughter*
  • Current Mood: amused amused
  • Current Music: Fisher -- Had To
And not a peep about the pre-slash that stayed in gen.

i can only guess this is about me:

dare i tell the little darling that my and the rest of the 'ship' stories WERE gen...of course not by thier definition of Daniel = Gen.

folks like this are why the awards are such a chore. People do their best, get bitched on/about...all by folks that won't get off their tushes and help.

Well apparently anytime you have any male and female character in a fic, it's considered a ship fic. Because men and women can never be friends. Nuh uh. Sacriledge.
