The nominations are in!  
Y'all head on over to vote in the dgficexchange. I was pretty pleased with the variety of nominations; this is the first year I've ever gotten around to nominating anything, so that makes me all proud.

Also, I always feel very guilty about voting for myself. Is that weird? I never know what to do.

And I never take notes on the stories, so now I have to go back and read what's in each nomination category so I can vote properly. Or I could just go and click ticky boxes at random...

Kidding... mostly.

(We're in the car, coming back from dinner at the in-laws. Ethan is waxing poetic on all the things he would buy if he had enough money. The subject turns to cars and so forth... )

Ethan. You know what I really want you to buy for me?

Me. (with trepidation) What?

Ethan. An underground lair. So I could build my own car.

Me. (is confused) Like Batman?

Ethan. (scoffs) No, like Tony Stark. (Who evidently surpassed Batman in coolness when I wasn't looking)

Nolan. Sorry, son. If I had enough money for an underground lair, I'd buy one for myself.

Ethan. But that's where I'm building my car!

Nolan. No, you're not, 'cause I'm not telling you where it is!

Ethan. (indignant) Then where am I going to build my car?!

Meanwhile... I sit alone in my estrogen.

Lastly? Rugby players wear very short shorts, FYI.

Aw... sad. I won't write in the next round, either, probably. I've lost the D/G uuuuurge, if you know what I mean. :*

*GIGGLES* I love your family. Also, DUH. Tony Stark is the epitome of cool. XD

I didn't know we were allowed to vote for ourselves? Or maybe it was just that we're not allowed to nominate ourselves?

We couldn't nominate ourselves. It said we COULD vote for ourselves, but not tell other people to vote for us.

But it still feels... selfish, somehow. Not that I'm not selfish, sometimes. Or a lot of the time.

Yeah. I know what you mean.

I'm actually just excited things are about over. This fest seems like it's been forever! I suppose that's what you get with a million entries :D

No, it actually did take QUITE a while between me being gone for two weeks to the UK and Sharlene finishing up her masters program. Luckily by this time next week, we'll have announced the winners and the reveal or be about to. Woo!

I can imagine y'all are excited that it's about done too. It's not easy running one of these things!

Yes. It'll be nice to be finished with another round. It's always a good feeling to be on the other side of it. :)

That is way cool. ^_^

I love voting and nomination time. It's always fun to see what people gravitate to. And meh, I say vote for yourself. If you're not your biggest advocate, who else is going to be? Just my opinion, though. :D

That is just so cute! And I guess I can go vote. I didn't get around to reading all the fics, but I'm way more involved this year than ever before.
