EVP 3 – Lawrence Awards (gen): Call for submissions & contributions

No matter how you feel about fandom awards and their place in fandom politics, in a fandom as tightly-focussed as Supernatural the Lawrence Awards have arguably provided a reasonably accurate representation of our tastes and loves in SPN fanfiction. For the next two editions EVP will be focussing on the stories that came out on top in the Lawrence Awards, interviewing the Best Overall Authors, recording some of the winning stories, and giving you the opportunity to voice your opinion with the Vox Pops.

Submissions close: 27th August, 2006; earlier if submission quota is filled.

Comment to claim items up for adoption.

Items will be struck through as they are adopted and thus become unavailable.

Submissions that do not fit into the guidelines below will not be accepted for this edition.


The following stories have been approved by the authors and require readers. If you would like to volunteer, please respond to this post with the story you'd like to adopt.

And Fools Shine On (excerpt, no more than 3000 words/8 minutes maximum)
by gekizetsu (aka eighth_horizon)
To be read by author.

Fistful of Rain (excerpt, no more than 3000 words/8 minutes maximum)
Adopted by misshallelujah.

Of Bastard Saints (excerpt, no more than 3000 words/8 minutes maximum)
by nilchance & beanside
Adopted by embroiderama


Gekizetsu, aka eighth_horizon, aka b stearns, cleared out the gen categories of the Lawrence Awards, winning Best Overall Gen for And Fools Shine On, First Runner-Up: Best Dean Gen for Crossing the Line, Best Epic Gen for The Month of Open Doors, Best Episode-Based Gen for Clear, and First Runner-Up: Best Comedy for When Siblings eAttack and last but definitely not least: Best Overall Gen Author.

Gekizetsu's work not only explores the complexities of characters, but forces the characters themselves to examine the conditions both of and for their own existence. At times metaphysical, always personal, Gekizetsu's intricately crafted writing style reflects the complex ideas and questions she raises to a seamless finish, packing a punch in the reader somewhere that's difficult to identify, but deeply felt.

In EVP 3 I'll be interviewing gekizetsu, and would like to invite listeners to submit questions for me ask her.

You can email your questions to evp.podcast@gmail.com before August 20.

All of Gekizetsu's stories can be read on her website.


Vox Pops are short, spontaneous opinion pieces in response to a topical question. Anyone may submit an audio response to the Vox Pop question. See the Guide to Contributing for more information on exactly how.

EVP 3's Vox Pop: Fandom awards: for or against? Why?

You may leave your response anonymous if you wish. Depending on the number of Vox Pop submissions, it is possibly that not all responses will be used.  


Submissions of banners and buttons for this edition of EVP are also welcome. These graphics will be hosted on EVP's server and offered for listeners and contributors to post on their own sites or blogs.

Buttons should be 100x40 pixels.
Banners should be 250x100 pixels.

All banners and buttons should have the text: EVP 3: Lawrence Awards (gen) and the url of the community: spnfic-podcast.livejournal.com

All graphics submissions will be used. You can email your submissions to evp.podcast@gmail.com any time before the closing date.

Couple of other items:

Banners & Buttons for linking to the community from your own lj or website will all be added to this post in future.

Master list/schedule of themed episodes changed slightly: Brain-powers has been dumped (for now) and replaced with "Humor & hijinks". Because dude, we so need an entirely cheery edition.

Due to time constraints, I anticipate the format for the themed editions to be: 3 fics, 3 songs, episode audio, Vox Pops, and one interview OR one meta/nonfic piece.

Any questions or comments are welcome at all times, via lj comment or email: evp.podcast@gmail.com

Hey there again,

grrli is considering recording the entire story (not for the podcast, just in general). er, you've still got dibs on it for this ed, but have a look over here for ideas of what excerpt to read, or maybe even consider reading the first part, and she can lead off from there? *shrug*

just FYI :)

Thanks! I was thinking about the first part, but the first chapter is way too short, and the first two together are probably a bit too long. I wrote to the authors, and they had a few suggestions, but I'll check out the ones on that post.
