I haven't been online for the last few days (hiking the Stiperstones, taking Bud to the beach, broadband dropping out, etc, etc *g*) so I hadn't realised that the results were up for this year's GateFic Awards. Luckily, the lovely [livejournal.com profile] hildejohanne & [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison were on the ball & emailed me to say 'go & look'!
*hugs*

Wow... I'm absolutely blown away. I've won three awards!







Thank you so, so much to everyone who took part in the awards process. I'm so touched & can't stop smiling - this has really made my day (week, month, year! *g*)
*hugs*

There were so many amazing stories & pieces of art - congrats to everyone who won & to all the nominees! What a lovely celebration of our shared passion.
I was especially pleased to see [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison's wonderful 'Second Verse' being recognised in the novel length AU category! This is my absolute favourite of her stories. ♥

And if that wasn't enough - Team Sheppard has won this year's [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match!



\o/
Woot! We won!
Go, Team Sheppard, go! *g*

The standard was incredibly high & the result was really close, & Team McKay were gracious & wonderful opponents.
Congrats to everyone involved!
*hugs*

I've just posted my own Match contribution in my fic & art LJ - I wonder if anyone guessed this was mine? *g*

What an exciting day!

I have stuff nominated for the GateFic Awards! \o/
Thank you so much to whoever nominated my fic & art!
*hugs*
That is so, so kind. ♥



I could do with a little advice though.
I have some fic nominated in the same categories, & the awards folk have suggested that in a case like that it may be wise to only submit one story per cat (to avoid them 'competing' against each other.)

cut for pondering )

Anyway, whatever happens - I'm really touched by the nominations.
I struggle a lot with feelings that my work just isn't that good or popular (which I know aren't the same thing but I have many inadequacies & am just generalising here to save everyone!) So, it's really lovely to think that someone has enjoyed one of my stories or graphics enough to take the time to do this.
Thank you! It means the world to me. ♥

+ [livejournal.com profile] xanthelj came to stay for the weekend & we had the most fabulous & pink & sparkly time!
And the ever lovely [livejournal.com profile] hildejohanne had flowers delivered for us both! Thanks again, Hilde - that was just so thoughtful. (And thank you for my virtual balloons, too. I love balloons! \o/)

+ [livejournal.com profile] xanthelj has sent me a gorgeous Moonpig card with this pic from the GQ photoshoot on the front... *guh*



The way he has his thumb dragging across his lip & that open-legged sprawl...
*combusts*

+ An art rec! The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] crysothemis has done the most beautiful sketch of John & Rodney having fun in the tub! ♥
It's so happy-making! ♥

And a duck by Crysothemis (John/Rodney)

+ I'm deleting my Twitter account. I've really never got the hang of it & haven't really used it.
I'll just stalk follow Joe & David, etc through the twitter feeds. :)

Speaking of which...

dhewlett:

Back from a fantastic day at Palace Flanigan! Wonder how long it'll take him to figure out all his computer's and ipad's new passwords? :-)

I'd have to pronounce this Rapture an epic fail...which is good since I spent it with @joeflanigan!

LOL I love the way these two tease. ♥

+ A quick reminder that nominations for the Gatefic Awards close this Saturday (28th May), so there's still time to make sure your favourite stories & art are included. :)


Happy Wednesday to all! ♥

JFlan tweeted from his hospital bed yesterday. He's having surgery for his separated shoulder.
There are pics, too!
I do hope it all went well & he's recovering okay. ♥

From Twitter:

@JoeFlanigan:

Going under knife right now. See you all on the otherside of the gate http://t.co/HLbdRTF

Snuck a little single malt scotch into the IV. http://t.co/Wqzzhua


Of course, DHew had to have his say! LOL

@dhewlett:

@JoeFlanigan sure, sure, your shoulder operation...or as I call it "youth-ing". You're the Joan Rivers of space! - Hewlett for good luck!

I ♥ these two so much!

The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison has contacted the good folk at the Gatefic Awards & there's no time limit on when stories, art, etc were first published.
So, nominations are okay for older stuff, too. \o/

Mads has the full response from the award mods here.



"Come on, Rodney. The nominations close on the 30th!"

"Yes, yes, Colonel Impatient! There are a lot of amazing stories & art to nominate, you know. Even a genius can only type so fast!"

I must admit that I hadn't heard of the Gatefic Awards before, though I think this is the first year that SGA has been included, so that probably explains it. :)

Anyway, the awards are currently open to nominations for all kinds of fan-created stuff (fic, art, vids.) The nomination process is very straightforward (just click on the nominate link & fill in the form) & will stay open until April 30th. I've already nominated several of my favourites, & it's pretty quick & you get an email confirming what you've done.

Link: Gatefic Awards

It's a lovely opportunity to recognise the stories & art that touch our hearts & bring so much pleasure. ♥



*ducks head & scuffs foot on floor*
I have master lists for all of my SGA fic & art, if anyone happens to need them... *g*

SGA fic
SGA art

Looking at the lists made me realise that I've been writing/making art in SGA since 2005!
Wow. Six years & counting!
It really is true that time flies when you're having fun! ♥

On a totally different subject - I reported a stray horse to the RSPCA earlier. Well, I think he's a stray. He appeared yesterday in a field that Bud & I pass through every day on our way to the woods.
He's got no food or water & that field isn't used for keeping horses - the gate is always left open (for access to a cottage) & he could get onto the road. He looks alert enough, but I didn't want to wait until he was distressed. The lack of water was really worrying me because even if he can maybe find something to eat in the field there's no water source.
I didn't want to seem like a busy-body but I was worried yesterday & then when he was still there this morning - with no sign of having been tended to - I thought it best to do something. If he is there legitimately then the people who own him should at least give him some proper food & water!
I spoke to a very nice lady at the RSPCA who took all the details.
I do hope he'll be okay.
