Small Tree and Flower banner, Small banner for the T&F awards on MPTT


2012 Many Paths to Tread Tree and Flower Awards

After a number of delays and glitches, the votes have been tallied. Votes were combined from both the polls on LJ at the lotr_community and the polls at the Yahoo!group, LOTR_Community_GFIC. A few votes at the latter were disqualified, and I thank the person who accidentally voted twice for coming forward and helping us out by telling us about it.

There are ties, in some case, multiple ties! But we did not plan for tiebreakers, so we will honor those winners equally.

There will be some lovely banners made by our intrepid banner-making volunteers available at the Many Paths to Tread archive by the end of the week! Thank you very much to Ellyn and to Nath for all their hard work, and to our intrepid webmistress Dawn Felagund for getting them up!

I'm sad that traveling and bad internet kept me from completing my voting, so I didn't get votes put in for all the categories. But I did my best!

On the other hand, I'm happy to have had the opportunity to participate and I found some great new stories to read! And of course, it's always sweet to discover that other people like my stories enough to vote for them. I'm very pleased about the ones that placed!

Thanks for all the hard work that went into this, we should definitely do this again!

Wow, this was not something I expected.. at all given my fandom 'activity' of the past years. I just have no, eloquent words for this to capture what I am feeling now. So I will say this, as a very busy mom I am humbled and touched to receive 5 2nd places and one very nice 3rd place.

Thank you all

I'm really amazed at the fact that two of my stories are up here! Thank you to everyone who liked them well enough to vote for them :) and thank you to everyone who got these awards together!!!

(On another note, I notice that one of my stories on the list is a crack-fic...My very first MEFA award was for a crack-fic too. Are people trying to tell me I should write more of it? LOL!)
