Damn it Eric!!


The two saxon vampire guards heard screeching and crashing from inside the room they were set to guard.  After turning to look at each other they hear a female yell.

“Damn it, Eric! They have already left.  They are not expecting to come back until the 29th.”  the voice is heard as the saxons wonder what is going on.  CRASH!   “You … you… you…you killed my laptop…my brand new laptop!!!”

The door is opened and the viking’s head peeks out the door.  “Get everyone back here now!” Then he promptly slams the door.

“How are we suppose to do that?” they stated together as they glance down the hallway where the ladies had left 5 hours ago.

“Well, hello again everyone seems Eric was impatient and decided to surprise everyone as soon as I finished the banners today.” the woman glared at him as he stood to the left holding a mangled laptop.  With over 9800 votes … here are the winners…

” You owe me a brand new laptop, Eric Northman!!” the lady yells at him from across the room as the Viking Vampire grins at her from across the room.

“You love me Robin.” He purrs.

“I Know that is the problem!!” she said as she stomps out of the room “Where did Godric put your sword again?”

“Wait…Robin…let’s talk about this.” the viking pleads as he vamps after her as he hears a sword crash to the ground.

Final note from 4padfoot:

Yes, the winners have been announced earlier than expected.  I hope everyone is happy and continues the well wishes to each other.  Continue to leave reviews for your authors cause I can promise the more reviews they get the more chapters you get to read.  It’s a win win for everyone!  I will be re-designing the site and then hopefully post the upcoming expectations for the New Blood Awards on the 29th.  I hope that the veteran authors will help nominate as many new authors as possible.   I will continue to do what I can to keep the fandom alive and communicating.





All my posts are beta’d by the wonderful, amazing, excellent, Meridian who also smells wonderful

    Congrats to everyone who won! You all deserve it since you are amazing writers and amazing people! I’m impressed by how quickly 4padfoot got this out! She must be some sort of ninja or computer savant! Either way it is impressive.

    I have to say I’m looking forward to reading and re-reading some of the nominees and winners and I’m super stoked about the New Blood Awards since someone you know meets the requirements! *cough cough* me *cough*

    Once again congratulations to the winners and the nominees!

  5. Congratulations to everyone!

    And I wanted to say a special thank you to you Robin for all that you did (and had to endure) to do something for so many for nothing in return.

    If there is any justice in this world, you really WILL find Eric’s *sword*. 🙂

  6. 🙂 Congratulations to all the winners! I’ve spent hours upon hours reading and enjoying all your stories, and you are all most deserving!

    You guuuyyyysss…

    Like I told MissRon80, I’m feeling all blushy and aww-shucksy right now. Thank you to everyone who voted period, no matter who they voted for, because our fandom could use all of the life support it can get.

    And I want to send out a special THANKS! to 4padfoot for doing all that she’s done for no other reason than her love of our fandom. That’s a special gal.

    Congratulations to all of the winners!

    Hi guys! I am very grateful for the honor of the award for Northman’s Nanny. I’m glad you still like this beast of a story. That makes me very happy. 🙂 I promise a new chapter as soon as I finish the two short stories I am working on. Love you guys and I have a huge warm fuzzy for this fandom(and I’m not talking about Eric.) 😉

  12. Congratulations to all the winners! You all rock your socks off for providing so much entertainment and delight for FREE!
    But I think everyone that was nominated (and lots that weren’t are all winners anyway! Woot! 🎉👍🎉

  13. Reblogged this on Gwyns Hidey Hole and commented:
    I know you’ve seen it before.
    But I just had to reblog this so I can find it easily when I come back to fanfic

    To every very deserving winner!

    Hugs all!
    See you soon 🙂

  14. Thank you, Robin, for doing this so quickly. Congratulations to all the winners and to all the other nominees, because we are all pretty awesome, right? 🙂

    Congrats to all the winners!

    I would like give up winning the Eagle Eye Award to Meridian and MsBuffy who deserve it far more than I do. I used to beta for the Queen of Area Five but I truthfully cannot remember the last time I worked on one of her stories. MsBuffy does do all of her stories though. I only work on Virala’s stories and she does the same for me. Then there’s Meridian who has beta’d for many and she helps out a lot on my stories from creative ideas to looking for all those lovely grammatical mistakes when MsBuffy doesn’t have the time.

    These two ladies are awesome and they both deserve to have won the Eagle Eye.

    Congrats again to all the winners!

    • Awww, that’s really sweet of you! ❤ I, however, am now out of the "help a friend out" beta business. I'll finish up what Kittyinaz (Hi, Wendy!) and I have planned as I refuse to go back on my word, and you know I'll *always* be willing to help you with your works in any way I can, but that's it. I feel that my free time would be better spent writing, and there's always something coming up in that dratted 'real life' that needs attention. MsB is an awesome beta – and a great cheerleader! She really deserves it more than I do. ❤

  16. congratulations to everyone that won and to those that didn’t., it is a major accomplishment to write and post your stories for everyone to read and enjoy. Write from the heart and you will never go wrong. KY

    thanks 4padfoot

  17. Congratulations to the winners and to the nominees. You ladies rock!

    And thanks to 4padfoot for bringing it all together and getting the winners announced so quickly. 🙂

  18. thank you 4padfoot for all your awesome work on this! I spent HOURS going through EVERY nomination and they were all excellent, it was extremely hard to pick winners cause they all win for me. I was entertained and enthralled (and I’m sure everyone sees my tag and starts eye-rolling cause I was all spamming the comments letting everyone know I was reading and voting.). I love this fandom and I love all the talent here (whether it’s writing, editing, artsyyummy banners, even the replays to comments are endearing and fun.).

    Congratulations to everybody!! ❤

    A round of applause for 4padfoot! She pulled this together so quickly and seamlessly.
    Congratulations to all the nominees and the winners! Your talent and phenomenal stories deserve to be the best of the best in the fandom!
    I also want to thank the other ladies who made this award season possible before this newest version was updated. Thank you Gyllene, Kittinaz, mistressjessica1028 and magsmcdonald. You ladies set these awards in motion and you will forever have my gratitude. I hope that we can all continue to support each other veterans and newbies, readers and writers. This fandom has been my saving grace for years and I don’t want to loose it to pettiness.
    Much love to you all!
    Again, Huge Congratulations to the winners! See you in the New Blood awards!

  20. Congratulations to all winners!
    Even if in my mind we (the readers) are the real winners as we get to read all those wonderful stories 😉 Thanks you all of you!

  21. Congratulations to everyone, all very deserved. The betas all deserved to win – The way the original voting went I tried to vote for everyone. Maybe an idea for the future would be to recognise the betas behind every winning story? I’m sure all the writers would say they helped them win. It was very hard to vote for artists too – maybe they could be separated somehow into different categories?

    Thank you to Robin – your humour and tireless work is very much appreciated. Of course your art should be getting an award of its own! I’m not going to wish you find Eric’s sword though – that I want for myself! Can’t believe how fast you announced the winners!

  22. Congratulations to all the winners — aren’t we previleged to have so many wonderful stories to choose from in this fandom? Life support – I don’t think so. 😀

    And a massive THANK YOU to padfoot for all the hardwork. Anytime you need a hand getting word out or anything else let me know.
