The Rumbelle Fanfic Fandom Awards Extravagnza Thingie
I’m a pro, my taglines proof that. So here are some facts:
- Fluffapalooza will be on February the 12th to celebrate the anniversary of our ship.
- Fluffapalooza is less than a month away.
- I prepared some fluffy stuff for you, because you’re the shit and you deserve it.
- Fluffapalooza is LESS than a month away!
Nobody panic, we still have some time to prepare. Write your fic, your poem or your meta. Draw that cute, fluffy picture you’ve been thinking about. Give the fandom and all those wonderful people in it the fluffy love you know they deserve.
Since I first posted about this year’s Fluffapalooza, a few things have changed. The T.E.A got delayed until summer, because our beloved RiskPig suffered a family tragedy. Of course we were all sad to have to be even more patient and wait for that great event. But even more so, we were sad that one of us had to suffer and so many sent messages of love and support to RiskPig
I think this makes it even more obvious what our fandom is about.
Yes, we ship, and we ship hard. But at the core, we’re human beings that care for each other. So many friendships formed and form in this fandom, it is wonderful.
And until it’s time to bathe in fanfic and fanart, let us fluffify the time to the big event!
You’re awesome, shiny badge of honor or no. Stay awesome.
What’s done is done, and here are the categories for which you may nominate fics! Click here, to revisit the list. So, go through your fics recs, or internet history, and think on who or what you want to nominate! :D NOMINATIONS DO NOT BEGIN UNTIL JANUARY 10TH. CLICK HERE FOR THE OFFICIAL EVENT SCHEDULE.
NEW RULE: These categories no longer need the two-author, two-fic, thing. Each category just needs at least one nomination. If not all pairings are listed, they WILL be added if someone nominates a fic for the pairing. :D
Same rules as Anyelle. :D More couples will be added by a single nomination. :D
I am done taking your suggestions, and I will review them to make my final decisions. If you have any questions, you may send them to this blog via fanmail, or to The RiskPig’s askbox.
However, I will ignore all asks relating to TEA if they are anonymous.
Today is the last day for category suggestions! You have until 11:59pm (CST, -6 GMT), and after that, I will turn off ask.
For the current list, visit this page. Throughout the day, I will be making adjustments, based on suggestions. I’ve gotten some great ones for Romance and Humor, but if you have any more, don’t hesitate to send them! :D
They are all listed below, and you can still find the page here.
Please read through the list, because I still need some help completing this list. Send your suggestions via ask or fanmail to this blog. Also let me know if you think anything needs to be added or deleted. :D
NEW RULE: These categories no longer need the two-author, two-fic, thing. Each category just needs at least one nomination. If not all pairings are listed, they WILL be added either by Monday, or if someone nominates a fic for the pairing. :D
Same rules as Anyelle. :D More couples will be added either by category suggestions, or a single nomination. :D
It’s the time of year again! On February 12th Rumbelle will turn 2!
To celebrate this very special event we’re having another Fluffapalooza. One perfect day without angsty tears or death, Happy Ends guaranteed with a high possibility for kittens, balloons, snuggle-sex and ice cream!
Join the fun, spread the fluff and mend those broken Rumbelle-hearts by posting your Rumbelle-Fluffapalooza-piece on February the 12th! May it be a drawing, a gif-set, video, a story about kittens or some romantic Rumbelle smut, we’re looking forward to your brilliant fluff!
To make things even better the T.E.A (The Espenson Award) will go in its second round!
I’ve gotten a lot of great suggestions for the past couple of days that have led me to the conclusion that the categories need to be redone completely. There should be a new list up by this evening.
However, for the next few hours, the category page will be blank until the new list is up.
Edit: New list might not be up until tomorrow.
BUT PLEASE KEEP SENDING IN YOUR SUGGESTIONS! I MEAN IT, THEY’VE BEEN A REALLY BIG HELP. FEEL FREE TO SUGGEST ANYTHING (as long as it doesn’t violate any of the rules)
Thank you, everyone, that has been giving me category suggestions so far! You’ve given great ideas to think over, to help make this event greater, and more fun for everyone!
Please, if you get ANY ideas for categories, suggest them! For all you know, it could be something Risk is on the fence about, and I’m just waiting for that one other person to share the idea!
On this blog I do not allow anon.
To keep this event honest. If there is something about TEA you would like to discuss, I will talk about it with you privately if it’s a sensitive topic. So please, if there is something you want to tell me that is TEA-related, send a message to this blog. I don’t like to judge, or ridicule anyone for their worries, opinions, or disagreements. Because I love this community, and I do my best to get along with everyone. I also do my best to prevent shit-stirring, which is why I rarely post negative-anons on my own blog unless there’s something really important (or funny) I need to say.
And on this blog, for this event, I will do my best to never post anything negative, because TEA is supposed to be fun.
So with that in mind, if there’s something you would like to say about me, or the event, go ahead. If you don’t feel comfortable saying it off anon, then maybe you shouldn’t say it at all. Or post those opinions on your own blog.
The Espenson Awards is a celebration. Our fandom has done truly beautiful things: made friendships, built confidences, and created magical art. The Espenson Awards is intended as a collective nod towards those particular pieces of fanfiction of which the fandom is most proud. No one here has an ego. I’ve seen it. We’re all very delicate woobies wanting hugs all the time. No one here writes for any reason other than passion.
A popular fanfic won? It’s popular because it’s been read the most. And it’s been read the most because it’s very well written. Should we not reward that? If you feel someone has been overlooked, then please, nominate them! Shout it from the rooftops! Fic rec like fucking crazy! We’re all friends here, and we all give each other attention when someone needs it.
I don’t want anyone to feel hurt or alone due to this event. All of it is done with the best of intentions, I promise. If you ever feel sad, or pissed, because of TEA, please message me! I wanna talk it over with you! I want to try and assure you that you’re not being ignored, victimized, or bullied in any way!
guardianofmyheart asked: Hi. I looked at the categorie. It seems designed for writers, but the fandom has so many awesome artists, gif-maker, photoshoper and videomaker. Do they get an award as well? Or is this to much?
Yes, these awards are only for fanfiction. It’s stated in the rules, and in the post that I made. Fanfiction is such a broad section of the fandom that it would be too exhausting to add fanart and such.
For those of you that did not participate last year, and would like to know “What are The Espenson Awards?”
Here is what you need to know:
HERE IS THIS YEAR’S SCHEDULE! ALL OF THESE DATES AND TIMES ARE FINAL - NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS. THE RISKPIG STANDS FIRM AND ACCEPTS NO LATE ENTRIES WHATSOEVER.
WHAT DOES RISK NEED FROM YOU?
This week is all about figuring out the categories. This fandom has grown sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much since last year, so a couple of things need to be tweaked. Some categories are no longer necessary (Notable Mentions) and some need to be expanded (Best Anyelle).
All of you, please, take a look at the current list, and make your suggestions. Feel free to ask any questions as well. It’s all of us working together that pulls this whole thing off! Make sure to either follow the blog or track #the espenson awards
Just send everything to the ask box. :D
