Whoa! I'm speechless, I truly am. It seems (even after pinching myself several times) that Through the Fire
won the Salty Goodness/Best Art Award at Indigo Crypt Awards'
Round 2. *is stunned out of her head* I don't know if it's possible to react in some cool way in a situation like this, but I found myself squeeing really loudly while limping around my apartment waving my crutches in the air, which - I'm quite sure - wasn't exactly cool. But who cares about the coolness when there's so much to be goofilly happy about! *beams*
Thank you so much for this amazing, heart-warming and ever so squee inducing acknowledgment! I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart! *beams some more*
And congratulations to all the absolutely amazing artists and writers there who more than deserved to be awarded and praised!
Here's the downright gorgeous banner I got accompanied by the super-wonderful feedback from the judges:"This piece of art literally made my jaw drop. And it stayed hung there for a while. Each time I look at this, I see something new. There is so much to see in what is a seemingly simple portrait. Absolutely stunning."
And as if that wasn't enough to make my head spin like a merry-go-round, I've been nominated again. At several awards. In several categories. *feels a bit jittery* I know I'm repeating myself but: Whoa! Squared! This is alternative universe stuff, I'm telling you. This is more than I ever could've even dreamed of. Lovely pretty nomination buttons:
This is for Indigo Crypt Awards
Round 3 nomination (Picture Perfect Award). This is just crazy, btw! I'm so out of my league here! And yet: YAYYY! :D
This is for Running with Scissors Awards
Round 2 nominations (Best Artist and Best Banner). The banner in question being this
. Two nominations at once - does such thing even exist? My brain's totally short-circuiting here. Best artist? What? Who? And yet: Omg, this is soooo awesome! :D
And last but not least this is for Rogue Poet Awards
Round 6 nomination. And before you ask, no, I still can't write fanfiction for the life of me. I've been nominated in the Fandom Cheerleader category there, and let me just tell you that this is one of the biggest compliments I've ever received. This fandom has given me so much - even before I ever had an LJ account. There have been times in my life when reading fanfics has been pretty much the only thing keeping me from dying inside, and I honestly can't think of anything that'd make me happier than the thought of having been able to give something back in return.
Thank you ever so much for these nominations! I can't even begin to tell you how much it means to me that I've been considered worthy of such acknowledgments. It's a great honor and I really really appreciate it. And now I'm off to squee some more! :D
