One of my stories was nominated :)  
Hey, everyone!

It's been ages since I actually posted something here on my LJ, not counting my entry about my Etsy shop, but I couldn't resist mentioning this here. :)

I had never heard of the Fanatic Fanfics Multifandom Awards before, but a week or so ago, I got a PM telling me that my old Star Wars story, "Slipping Into Darkness," had been nominated in their "All-Time Favorite Star Wars Fanfic" category.

I wrote "Slipping Into Darkness" over ten years ago, when I was 17. It was that story which really helped spark a love of writing in me, and clichéd as it may sound, it's always had a special place in my heart since then.

I don't know if it will win - I know it's up against very tough competition - but just the nomination means a lot. :D

If you'd like to check out my story, "Slipping Into Darkness," you can do that here.

Summary: Anakin has the opportunity to change the future. But, can he can resist the temptation of the Dark Side and overcome his own weaknesses, or has he already fallen too far? Ep. III AU.

(Note: I go by Ani-maniac494 on FF.N, just in case anyone is wondering why the screen name is different. :) )

If you'd like to vote in the contest, you can do so here. Voting runs from April 11, 2016, to May 2, 2016.

Thanks so much!

Hey, congratulations! That is really awesome. It's always exciting when your work is enjoyed and appreciated, but somehow it's especially fun when people discover it years later and are still enjoying it. :)

Thank you so much! :) It's been quite a while since we had the chance to chat. How are you? And happy birthday, by the way! I hope you have/had a wonderful day!

I'm doing well! Thank you. :) My birthday was awesome. (In addition to the blu-ray of The Force Awakens, I got actual fossils!)

I hope life's been good for you as well!

I'm glad you're doing well, and that you had a good birthday! Very cool! What kinds of fossils are they? :)

Thanks for the well-wishes also! Life is admittedly more than a little crazy at the moment, but I know it's in God's hands. :)

I got some great dinosaur teeth! Spinosaur, raptor, mosasaur, a big crocodile one, and a pteranodon one. They're amazing. :)

Sorry to hear things have been so crazy! (I know the feeling.) It is such a blessing to know that God has us where He does for a reason, and He'll carry us through. I hope things start to settle down soon!

Congratulations on the nomination. Hope you win, and if you don't, just getting the nomination is cool, especially for having written it so long ago. Good luck!
