A golden age for fic? :)

I suspect several people are doing what I am today, catching up with Lost Riffs fics so they can nominate at lost_fic_awards since noms are due today. We were all so prolific! And so many amazing fics! I had a terrible time choosing what fics to nominate! I think I nommed something from every prompt. :) I also kind of wish there were a category for drabbles or "fics under 500 words" or something because there have been so many excellent ones lately. hkath what do you think of maybe adding something like that?

I also figured out I could apply several more fanfic100 prompts to recent fics, so I'm now up to 64 Jack/Sawyer fics. Woo hoo. I don't know if I'll ever write a Thanksgiving fic, though! And "orange." Let's see, what's orange? Prison jumpsuits, for one thing. *thinks* I could probably do that. I just have about a billion fics I want to get to and fics I've promised people. And who knows what else new Lost canon will inspire?

Okay... rambling and stopping now.

Well, oranges for one! :D

And maybe sunsets. But yeah, sexy prison jumpsuits :D

Yes, very true! Oranges would be the obvious choice! But prison jumpsuit might be a little sexier. I'll have to keep these in the back of my mind when I'm working on other fics. I haven't really tried to build a fic specifically around any of these prompts in a while, I'm just happy if they happen to synch up.

Jin's friend in his flashbacks says that love is orange. -nodnod-

Oranges are orange too.

Some cats are orange.

And this is all I have. :(

Very true. It could also be Cheddar cheese or cantaloupe, LOL. Or just an orange article of clothing. The Jin/Sun writers had it easy for that prompt!

There were a TON of great fics. I just went chronologically for ones to nominate -- I guess I'll save the rest for next time.

And hey, you never know. I managed a Thanksgiving fic -- you might someday, too! (I guess it doesn't *have* to be the holiday, too, it could be a more subtle giving of thanks...)

I went back through chronologically too, but then I'd find earlier ones and be very torn. Suffice it to say, if I could nom more than one in several categories, I would have!

That's a good point - "Thanksgiving" doesn't literally have to be the holiday. Like "Independence" doesn't have to be about the 4th of July. Although it could be, LOL. It sucks when you write a fic that is better suited to a prompt you've already used than an earlier fic. Oh well! I'm not going to stress about it. If I never finish those prompts, I'm okay with that. I usually try to apply them after the fact anyway.

"Orange you glad you didn't say banana?" How terrible would a fic be with </i>that</i> line of dialogue!

Also, totally forgot about the noms. Thanks for the reminder.

Hee! I did think of that! And yeah, that would be hard to make work!

And glad this served as a reminder! :)
