Thank you all so much for casting your vote for your favorites - I was impressed by the turnout and the response to all of the choices. :)

In some ways, it was a pretty tight race, but we came out with three categories that Gabrielle and I are both excited about, and we think they're broad enough to bring in a wide variety of fiction and fill the categories!

And now, without further ado...


The New Round Two Categories Are:

Best Future

Best Character Death

Most Original



To see the complete category listing including definitions, check out our Categories Post.


We will keep all the remaining suggestions, and if this system works out, we'll give you all a chance to vote on them for round Three.

Thanks again for your participation - it's so nice for Gabrielle and I to know that you care about our site and want to see it continue! :)



And don't forget - Nominations open August 1st, so start collecting fics to nominate!

Thank you all for your suggestions for new Round Two Categories. For those of you who haven't been around, Gabrielle and I decided to remove the AU, Short and Long categories, and have the public vote on which categories they'd like to replace them.

Below are your suggestions, as well as a few from the mods. You may select up to three that you think would be good categories. Please do not select a category unless you can think of two or more fics that would fit in the category. This is just to make sure that we end up with nice full categories so that they can be judged. :)

Thanks so much for your participation. Please note that the Drabble/Ficlet, Het, Slash and Gen categories will be back for Round Two (which starts in August), so start bookmarking fic to nominate!

Poll #1417177 Categories for Round Two
This poll is closed.

Please select up to three categories you think would be a good addition to Round Two of AoL Awards. Please make sure that you know of at least two angsty or dark fics that you could nominate in the category before checking it. :)

Most Twistedly Sweet - For those fics that make you grimace and go 'awww' at the same time

Hello, everyone! We're trying to start getting things together for Round Two, which will start in August, and wanted your input on what sorts of categories you might like.

We've decided to keep Drabble/Ficlet, Slash, Het and Gen and are doing away with the AU, Short and Long categories.

We'd like between 2 and 4 categories to replace these, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to leave them in a comment!
