Mah Banners, I Has Them

So a while back I won the 1st and 3rd place in the iCarly category of the UFO Awards.

I never really announced this to the people over at the GS because when I made the nomination announcement post it turned into EPIC WANK and I was so pissed off at a few of the members there for needlessly badmouthing some of the nominees (including a mod, with whom I have made my peace at this point) I froze the comments and went on my way. So when I *WON*, *twice*, I was loathe to shout it to the rooftops, even though I totally wanted to. Apparently, even though I had never heard of the UFO awards before getting into iCarly fandom, they are Kind Of A Big Deal. ::shrug:: Who knew?

Aaaaanyway I just got an email from the admin of the awards. My banners have been made! Also, I'm no longer a member of the GS (where I felt quite unwelcome despite evidently being loved by all, pffft). So. BOOYAH. SUCK IT, HATERS. Did any of the fics you desperately wanted to win so badly that you felt the need to put down the fics of other, unknowing people win? NO. And, uh... here are the banners. They are totally not to my aesthetic but hey! That means it wasn't secretly rigged by me, amirite? :P

This reminds me, I've really really been meaning to redo my LJ profile. Expect me to yack about this soon.

gomgom you left GS?

Re the banners, I like that they actually made them sorta fit the stories. Mainly how the P&C banner has a camera and Freddie and Sam.

I haven't been a member of the Groovy Smoothie since the modpost where Jannika was like "We don't want to have to start having consequences for breaking the rules, guys."

I threw up my arms with disgust and left a comment like "Do you even read what you wrote? If there are no consequences, there are no rules! I'm out of here."

And then left the comm.

Amazingly enough, wank in the thread proceeded to occur and Jannika grew a pair and striked all of her namby pamby text, froze all the comments, and they started moderating the posts. She said that there would be a post about these rules (that they evidently never wanted to make, sorry but that's just wishful thinking gone wrong) in a few days, but it's been a while and no post as of yet. I still check out the comm occasionally, to see what's been crossposted to 5432 and to see if the assholes have been banned for their totally unacceptable behavior. They haven't been. They also haven't caused any further shit-stirring.

Either way, until the GS stops being a hateful, judgmental, and overall MINDLESS place full of crap I don't care about and celebrity gossip, I'm not joining up again, if ever.

so you didn't make this damn awards? ...yeah, you would be too much of a perfectionist to give out these banners. haha

are you gonna post them on 5432? It's your com.. you can shout there if you want.

and yay for getting both first AND third place!!!! I almost feel sorry for second, almost. It's like he's the middle child in the family with middle child syndrome.. but then the middle child is usually the peacekeeper.. so if P&C and A2A fight for dominance, the second placer will be referee!

Jannika got 2nd place. Her fic was okay. If I recall, it was all emo and sadlike, and very much not what I like to read when it comes to fic, but at least, hey, it was well-written!

Eeeeeee! Congrats even though it's been months.

Look at that baby picture of Freddie. Adorbs.

I know! It's from when he had awful hair. Who would have ever known it could be transformed into the glorious fluffiness that it is today?!?!
*pinches BB Freddie's cheeks*

Awww! Yours are cute! I got my "hurpdurp uhhh, members choice!" one and it's like, GIANT SAM with a itty bitty Spencer, when Spencer's hair was short and sticky-uppy.

I saw! :D

I dunno, mine wouldn't be cute if BB Fredlumps wasn't being snorglable in them. XD

Yay, congrats! (And P&C totally deserved it, I love that fic so much.)
Sep. 28th, 2009 07:31 pm (UTC)
Thanks sweetcheeks! ^_^;

(Yeah, I know I'm full of myself, but in the year of 2008 I think there were maybe like... 3 other reasonably written iCarly fanfics in existence, and they were all of horrific rambling size or 200 words long. P&C totally DOES deserve it! The next year will be MUCH stiffer competition, if I ever manage to finish Cruise Control and if the fandom hasn't completely imploded by then.)

Aww, they put a little camera on there! They read it <3
Or at least they read the summary.
Sep. 28th, 2009 07:28 pm (UTC)
XD I think *someone* read it, at least! And then gave the person who made these a summary or something. Cuz if you go to the awards page you can see *all* the banners together and the same person obviously made ALL the banners. There are like, dozens of them for all different fandoms. :)

But I think they DID read P&C because that's a classic Canon basic body film camera without a fancy zoom lens or anything, which is EXACTLY what Freddie was using, although I'm not sure I ever actually specified this fact. And when you google image "camera" or "student camera", that is NOT what you come up with these days. Part of the interest of P&C is the anachronism of the film, you know?
