revdorothyl: Rayne (Rayne)
Since the PrettyDeadly.net website went down (sometime in 2015, though it'd been wonky for some years before that), those of us who occasionally enjoy reading some River/Jayne Firefly fic have not had access to the lists of and links to award-winning and nominated fics that we used to find there.

Because I'm just that obsessive (and hate to lose any more fandom history of any kind), I've been working to piece together the "Blue Sun Fandom Awards", "Best of Rayne", and "Pretty Deadly Awards" lists -- with the last one being the toughest, since we apparently relied entirely on the PrettyDeadly.net website to preserve that info and didn't post complete (or even near-complete or partial) lists anywhere else at the time.

The information and links I've been able to acquire over the past couple of weeks are now posted on my LJ under this tag: https://revdorothyl.livejournal.com/tag/awards

Everything that contains my far-from-complete and way-too-spotty information about the "Pretty Deadly Awards" (2007-2010) can be found here: https://revdorothyl.livejournal.com/tag/pretty%20deadly

Same goes for the results of the "Best of Rayne" awards (2005-2007): https://revdorothyl.livejournal.com/tag/best%20of%20rayne

And for the "Rayne-adjacent" portions of the "Blue Sun Fandom Awards" (2004-2005): https://revdorothyl.livejournal.com/tag/blue%20sun

I have yet to set up individual tags for the actual award categories, but here's how they work out in terms of numbered posts:

-- Long fic or unfinished/unending: posts 1A, 1B, and 1C.

-- Romance: 2A, 2B, 2C.

-- Kiss: 3A, 3B.

-- Humor: 4A, 4B, 4C.

-- Pre-Rayne: 5A, 5B.

-- Horror and Angst: 6A, 6B, 6C.

-- Drama: 7A, 7B.

-- Kid!fic: 8A, 8B.

-- Drabble: 9A, 9B.

-- PWP/Sex: 10A, 10B.

-- Jayne-centric: 11B.

-- River-centric: 11C.

-- Fluff: 12

-- Song!fic: 13


If ANYONE reading this was nominated for a "Pretty Deadly Award" for any year other than 2008 (the only year's ballot I was able to retrieve), please, please, pretty please let me know so I can improve the database I've been trying to patch together.

I'd especially like to have an idea of the nominees for the 2011 PDAs, since the results from that year were invalidated at the request of the one author who won every award that year due to an overly-enthusiastic friend who nominated her fics and repeatedly voted for them all regardless of category.

I'm also still missing the 2010 winners in the best song-fic, best Rayne kiss, and best Jayne-centric categories, as well as almost all the nominees in every category.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
