2010 Winners List!  

Well, you've all been patient, now it's finally time for the big reveal: the winners of the 2010 Criminal Minds Fanfic Awards!


A big thank you once again to everyone who participated, including those who pimped the awards on other communities and journals, and especially those who pushed themselves to get through the (extremely long) list of nominees! And another round of congratulations to the nominees themselves - even if you didn't happen to win this year, you're still terrific authors who provide a much appreciated service to the fandom. Keep doing what you're doing!


I'll post a breakdown of the votes in a separate post a bit later for those who are interested (I know not everyone wants to see that sort of thing). But for now, here are the winners you guys chose!


In the case of ties (and they were numerous and extensive...), fics were once again listed alphabetically. Winners will be contacted within (hopefully) the next week with instructions on where/how to get their banners.

Found this group in a kind of round about way. I read a story by an author who won an award from a forum on ff.net, yet the story didn't at all fit the category it won for (It was listed as a Hotch/Reid story, yet Reid was a minor character at best, who showed up in probably less than 10% of the story). So I went to forum to go comment on that and was banned for being so horribly mean. There was a post talking a lot of crap about this award and I figured anyone that people that ridiculous dislike is probably the way to go for me.

I'm new to the Criminal Minds fandom, I just started watching the show a few months ago, and I would love to find a place where I could find some well-recommended stories. But any award that would defend giving an award to a story, however well-written, that does not fit the category it was placed in is not deserving of any respect imo. So I'm hopeful that I'll find better things here, though from what I've seen so far, I'm definitely more impressed by the setup here. And now I'm off to read some good fiction.
