13 Days of Sammy

The 2008 Limp!Sam Awards

We’re getting ready for the holidays early this year! This holiday season we wanted to revive, in part, The Limp Sam Fan Fiction Awards. What better way to celebrate the season than the 13 Days of Sammy?

This is how it will work. This LJ is where nominations for the 13 categories can be made. This time around, to save on time, we’re focusing in on the limp categories. To nominate, you must reply to the category post with the author, title, AND a URL. All replies will be moderated so they will not be visible to the public. Also, you do NOT need to be a member of livejournal to leave a reply.

Once nominations are closed, we will sort through the nominations and make a final list. When we make the list public, voting will begin. Then results will be compiled and we will reveal the winners of each category in the 13 days counting down to Christmas.

Keep in mind that the fics can be from any site and by any author. Since this is the first time we’ve done this, they can also be published at any time but must be complete at the time of nomination. Limit your nominations to one per category. Please keep the ratings R and under if possible--we still want to keep this as family friendly as possible. If you have a question on a fic, just post it and the mods will take it under consideration.

And the categories for this winter limpness extravaganza are:

Best Abduction

Best Curse or Bewitching

Best Intubation

Best Oxygen Deprivation (Drowning, Choking, or anything else where Sam’s breathing is impaired)

Best Head Injury

Best Bloody Mess (Find all the gunshots, stabbings, impalings--anything that makes Sam bleed goes here)

Best Illness

Best Broken Bone

Best Unhinged (Give us the fics where Sam is emotionally traumatized and psychologically impaired)

Best Hospital Visit

Best Motel Room Fix-Up (This is the place for all those fics where the boys do it themselves without a visit to the hospital)

Best Limp Dean (Because we love Dean, too)

Most Original Limpness

Please, pimp the awards as best you can. The more participation the better! Mention it on your LJs, other message boards, in the notes of fics you write--anything! Let’s make this a Merry Limp!Sam Christmas!
