You Want Blood Awards


The group of stalkers lead the writers and readers of the SVM/TV fandom into the now familiar hallway where they are to wait to learn the nomination rules for the New Blood Awards.  As they near the closed doors, they hear arguing.

“But Robin, he didn’t mean to.” the male voice that everyone recongizes as coming from Godric says.  “You’ve had him locked up for 5 days.”  The doors opened and everyone saw Eric sitting in a small wire cage.


“Oh please, Godric, like he couldn’t shred that whole cage if he wanted.  He’s staying in there because he knows he messed up.”   The woman says as she glares at the grinning vampire.  “Now I have an announcement to make, please excuse me.  Girls are you ready?”

“Oh Robin yes, we’re ready and we’re so glad we get to help with these New Blood Awards.” The red head squeals excitedly. Everyone recognizes…

As you all know last challenge I gave a banner to one reviewer, this time there are so many

who reviewed each and every story with kind words and encouragement that there is no clear winner, so

give me a day or two and those that commented on each story will be getting a little token of my appreciation in their email.

I want to Thank each and every one of you that took the time to write a story or stories, those that came to read and comment, and those that reblogged my posts and talked about the challenge helping me get the word out.

I Feel I must say something profound to this next person but words fail me. …. This lady has encouraged me, championed me, taken time out of her busy schedule to write Promo Stories, and has entered a story for each banner in both challenges and is looking forward to the Winter Challenge.

So A Great Big Heartfelt THANK YOU to California Kat.

Last Chance

Today is the last day for voting so if you have read the stories but haven’t voted. Head on over and cast your vote. One of the categories is a real toss up the leader is ahead by one vote, so that one will be a photo finish I’m sure.  I’ll stop rambling so you can head over to the stories and the voting booth.


The winners will be announced Oct. 10th.

Have you seen the banners?

Have you read the stories starting here?

After reading all 11 stories did you vote?

If you answered yes to these questions then I would like to thank you on behalf of the authors. I know some of them are chomping at the bit to be able to thank you for your kind words.

If your answer is no then what are you waiting for? There is still time to read all the stories and vote for the story you think best fits the banner it was written for as well as voting for three of the stories that left you wanting (needing) more.

Voting closes on the 8th and the winners will be announced on the 10th … that is also the date that the  authors’ names will be revealed.

It’s Time To Read

The authors have done their part, now it is your turn … all the stories are in and posted… here.  Unfortunately there were no takers for the Viking Banner so that one will be going to California Kat since she wrote the Promo story for it.

The voting booth will be open on October 1 so once you read the stories you can vote …. there won’t be any waiting.

Please be sure to leave a comment for the author after you have read the story and PLEASE keep in mind that there are some 1st time authors in this challenge.  Mean comments will be removed. The authors will not be able to reply until after the voting is finished.

There are some really great stories in this challenge, I know there are several I would like to see continued.


Happy Reading,

The Deadline Approaches

There is still time to enter the challenge but you must act quickly …Tonight at 11:59 is the deadline for submitting your story. Some stories have already been submitted but there is always room for more. So if one of the banners grabbed your attention and it just won’t stay out of your head you still have time to write a one shot or the beginning of a multi chapter story and to submit it.

I look forward to reading your story.
