Hey everyone! Can you believe that we're back for our fourth year already?

We're looking to repeat another successful, fun month of writing in October -so of course we'd love to include as many wonderful authors as possible!

Write 10 entries of 1000 words or more - whether they be updates for your novels or one-shots, and one original story that is 6,000 or more words! The last entry gets to be in the theme for the year, which is announced on Oct. 1st! Fulfilling all the entries isn't mandatory (though you do get a nifty banner if you do) - all we ask is that you try! If we can help even one person get back on track with their writing, then we're happy! :)

Not convinced yet?

October Writing Challenge is a great place to give/receive feedback, as well as meet other writers! We encourage all members to comment on entries and cheer each other on as we make our way towards the end of the month.

Hey.  
So,

People still writing about our two killing machines? Because I am thinking about kicking up another story.

Been a while, how is everyone?
 
 
No luck yet on identifying any additional nominees or winners for the "Pretty Deadly" Awards, but while searching I did find some archived copies of willow_reece's 2009-10 works related to Firefly.

Below, I've included the still-active links to her works on "ProzacandCandy", as well as the archived works.

If anyone has trouble with the web archives, I've copied all the web archive stories and story chapters into a single Word document, which I'm happy to share as needed.
 
 
The information and links I've been able to acquire over the past couple of weeks is now posted on my LJ (I didn't want to spam this community with something like 30 additional posts), under this tag: https://revdorothyl.livejournal.com/tag/awards

Everything that contains information about the "Pretty Deadly Awards" (2007-2010) can be found here: https://revdorothyl.livejournal.com/tag/pretty%20deadly

Same goes for the results of the "Best of Rayne" awards (2005-2007): https://revdorothyl.livejournal.com/tag/best%20of%20rayne

And for the "Rayne-adjacent" portions of the "Blue Sun Fandom Awards" (2004-2005): https://revdorothyl.livejournal.com/tag/blue%20sun

I have now set up individual tags for the actual categories, but here's how they work out in terms of numbered posts, also:

I'm trying to reconstruct, to some extent, the lists of award-winning and award-nominated fics we used to be able to access on the Pretty Deadly site, but which are beyond the capabilities of the Wayback Machine archive and the captures it made of the site from 2008 to 2015.

So far, I've managed to use the Wayback Machine and other tools to acquire complete lists of nominees and winners of the 2004 and 2005 Blue Sun Fandom Awards, the 2005 and 2006 "Best of Rayne" awards, as well as a relatively up-to-date (but by no means complete) list of the nominees for the never-awarded (am I correct in that?) 2007 "Best of Rayne" categories.

What I'm having difficulty with now is the "Pretty Deadly Awards" for 2008-10 (nominees as well as winners), as well as the list of nominees from the 2011 Awards, which were going to be re-held due to software failures in the system but never were.

Thanks in advance for any help you all can render.

Hey all, I was just wondering if anyone had a copy of all the Mik fics (Choices, Deal, etc) that revdorothyl said they had like a year ago. I know its sort of late but I'd really appreciate it if anyone still has those! Thanks. 
 
 
I noticed that goddessofbirth's name wasn't crossed out anymore, as it had surely been before, and lo and behold, much to my surprise, her fiction posts on LJ seem to be restored, with original comments as well.

I'm going to hurry and try to save copies of as many as I can, JIC.

So I really need to save copies of all these stories I love. I keep loosing them.
Does anyone know of a Rayne fanfiction that starts something like "she loved the ship, but she loved the boy more."?
It is post BDM, and River is the pilot, the crew are all treating Jayne badly because of their relationship, giving him the worst, most dangerous jobs. So River pilots Serenity to a moon, where another ship which recently lost crew will also be landing, packs up their things and leaves.
She leaves a note for Simon that when the parents reconcile she will come back. Simon thinks she means their parents and every week tries to wave them. Simon and Kaylee leave the ship and he starts working as a doctor on the rim. Mal goes back to Serenity Valley, until Inara goes to him, and then he works on getting the crew back.
I cannot remember the title or the author, but it was one of my favorites.
Thanks for the help!

I know that this is a long shot. A very, very, VERY long shot. But was there ever a fic written based on the fanvid "Rayne - Set the Fire to the Third Bar" by Keelysophie? I'll add a link to the vid at the end of this post, in case you haven't seen it.

Video summary is: "River is kidnapped and Jayne wants to get her back but everyone says it's too dangerous. He misses her and remembers all of the times they had together. During this time River is being experimented on, and wants only to get back to Jayne. Eventually, the crew attempt to rescue River, led by Jayne."

I love the video, and would give just about anything to read a fic that was based upon it!

I only just realized that I never specified what other mik109 fics (besides "Choices") I was able to retrieve, so here they are:

If anyone needs a copy of any or all of these fics, just let me know. :)
