UFO Awards

I'm a little surprised to announce that A Traditional Ninja Romance was nominated for an award in the Universal Fanfiction Open awards at dotmoon.  I will be honest and admit that I hadn't even heard of the UFO awards until now, but it appears to have been running for a couple of years and this year there was a Prince of Tennis category!  (Although I'm a little wtf at that as surely the fandom has been in decline this past year compared to years previous?)

They even gave me a little picture for it:
 


Voting has just opened here, if you feel so inclined.  Even if you don't, there are some interesting fics there (And a respectable TezRyo presence, yay pillars!).  There were a couple of interesting one-shots I hadn't come across before, though far too many TezuFuji stories to feel comfortable while browsing. XD

For the TezRyo fans, [info]iluxia 's City of the Wind fic is there too (which got my vote, as I would be embarrassed to vote for my own *waves hi*).

It's very flattering, and I would like to take the opportunity to thank whoever nominated or seconded the story!  (Although these words are may be wasted here, as the link is to the ff.net posting.  Hopefully the sentiment can cross website borders.)

ALSO, GUYS, GUYS, YOU KNOW WHAT?  IT'S MARCH.  AND MARCH MEANS THAT SHIN TENIPURI IS FINALLY OUT!  *COMMENCES FLAILING*

I THOUGHT IT'S OUT IN APRIL?! SERIOUSLY?!

*flails*

AND CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NOMINATION. Have you prepared your thank-you speech yet? XD I'm voting for you without a doubt. Gah, I still think you should've voted for yourself.

This is the first I heard of that Open too.

Re: Purple Crow
SERIOUSLY. THE RAWS SHOULD BE OUT ANY TIME? \o/ SOMEBODY LINK ME, I AM TOO BUSY BEING EXCITED TO LOOK FOR MYSELF!

Ha ha, you make it sound like I'll win! There are some good fics there - I'm sort of stoked to have been nominated at all. Thank you for the vote though~ ♥

XDD You're welcome! You got in! XD I'm relieved that others nomi-ed your ninja fic as well. I mean, come on now, TezuRyo ninja goodness~ *insert ninja mote here*

XDD Twinness will be ecstatic to the point of big-headed-ness happy to hear that you've voted for WindCity and would like to thank you for that as well. 0=3 If you ask [read:bribe] her nicely, maybe you can help me persuade [read:bully] her into continuing the sequel.

I beg your pardon?! I shall do no such shomin thing!

Shut up, Tria, you don't need any such help. You're already enough persuasion as it is. >.>;; And I believe you messed up plot for Sinn-san, because she doesn't read MPreg, remember? AND WHO WAS IT WHO INSISTED ON AN MPREG WHEN I HADN'T PLANNED ON ANY SUCH THING ORIGINALLY?!?!?

If you say so.

._____. Well technically, it's not really mpreg since it doesn't focus on the mpreggie-ness AND there's only that little bit of it at the beginning. If you look at it, 8DD it really is more the...result of the amalgamation of TezuRyo goodness packed in another small body. XD

Please, by no means stop writing it on my account! It was still a superb story.

I tracked it down as soon as I got home from work today. ^__^ OH, RYOMA, WHY YOU GOTTA BE SO COOL?

(I laugh at their selection method though. Oh, the drama.)

Sinn-saaaaaaaaan~! *squish* Thank you. (I so totally forgot about this UFO Awards in the midst of the school confusion, and the nomination thingy has been sitting in my mail archive for the longest time...) But thank you for casting the vote; I also cast my vote for you back when the initial voting started. 8DDDDDD I was so totally for your fic, which was, btw, the incarnation of TezuRyo awesomeness.

Anyway. Off to put that nomination badge thingy nao. .____.

Oh, and nice new layout! It's cleaner than the last one. I'm glad you retained the Tezuka Zone theme-ness of it, though. 8DDDDDDDD

Haven't you seen the movie? I am contemplating turning all of my avatars into a frame-by-frame account of that animated sequence. XD Laziness may be all that saves you.

ALSKFJSLKFJSALKFJKSLAJF THE MILK WORKED!

(Suddenly, Japan Rail is plauged by middle schoolers propping doors open with their racquets!) XD

Ryoma just can't stay away from Japan for more than two weeks, can he?

SLKDFJLKSJDFLAJdlajfaslkfjASLDJFSLFKJ I'd forgotten how incredibly HAPPY this manga makes me.

INDEED THE MILK WORKED. THUS IS INUI'S INHERENT GENIUS.

(That scene was hilarious. Is there any other flashier way to prop open train doors? Nai.)

And of course he can't. Buchou's back home, and he's far, far away in the sinking boat that is otherwise known as the United States! Who wouldn't WANT to go Japan?! (Even I wanna go Japan. Like, right nao. ._____. But I can't.)

ALKSJDLKDFJGLFDKGJ; YOU SHOULD HAVE HEARD ME WHEN I FIRST READ THE RAWS. OMFG I THINK I WOKE UP THE ENTIRE BLOCK.
