Good afternoon, everyone!

Voting has now begun for the fanfiction awards.  Voting will last from now to November 30, 2021 at midnight.

If you wish to vote in private, please send me a PM with your votes. Otherwise, please post your votes in this topic.

This is the voting section for the fanfiction awards only. All fanfictions that have been submitted by your fellow members for voting are listed below. Please only post on this topic to submit your vote, do not ask questions or have discussions here. For questions, please click here and comment on the rules.

You may vote on as many fanfictions as you'd like, but you must have read them first. Please show us in your review that you've truly read the fanfiction.


Name of fanfiction: Treestar Memories
Short summary: A Treestar's point-of-view of the Dinosaur world
Link to fanfiction on the GoF:
Author(s): Mouse-a-saur
Any other comment: Excited to see all the entries!

Name of fanfiction: Our Past and Our Future
Short summary: Adolescence is an awkward time of self discovery as well as physical growth. Chomper seems to experience this the most because of his Sharptooth heritage. But when he and his friends meet an unlikely friend during one of their adventures, things might be turning out for the better. Series of Slice of Life Oneshots related to "Past and Future".

Author(s): LBTlover247
Any other comment: Some of the chapters have been edited since their original post date. Please check out the link to read the updated versions as I haven't gotten around to updating them on here yet.

Name of fanfiction: A New Era Hatches
Short summary: Imprinting is a funny thing sometimes.  But, for three orphaned hidden runners, species means little.  Thankfully for them, Mother Mender is there in their first moments.
Link to fanfiction on the GoF:
Author(s): Rhombus
Any other comment: Is part of the Mender’s Tale story, but reading that story is not necessary to understand the premised of this story.

Name of fanfiction: The Other Side of the Rainbow
Short summary: A response to the 2020 Summer Prompt Exchange and set in the Seven Hunters continuity. Curiosity can lead to great discoveries and wondrous adventures, but this is probably an adventure that the rainbowfaces wished they could have avoided. :p
Link to fanfiction on the GoF:
Author(s): Rhombus
Any other comment: A late entry for the August 2020 prompt, which was not submitted until November 2020 (and thus meets the entry requirements for the awards)

This is a difficult vote, as both members are quite deserving. But I will also have to cast a vote for StardustSoldier here.

Hello, everyone!

We have reached the final award of the year: the APPRECIATED MEMBER AWARD. Any member who has received at least one vote in nomination for an award, and who cast votes in the award voting themselves, but did not win or get runner up status, is eligible for this award. 

Voting will run for 2 weeks and will end at midnight forum time on 10/24/2021. Here are the nominees:


Good luck, everyone!  :)littlefoot

Running Tally:

StardustSoldier: 4

RainbowFaceProtege: 2

Character Showcase / Bron Showcase - October 2021
« on: October 02, 2021, 11:39:58 AM »
Well, look what the herd brought in!


In this topic please feel free to discuss Bron as a character, to share your own creations (fanfics or fanart) concerning him, or to mention some of your favorite fanworks of others involving him.  For a full set of rules please see the 2021 Monthly Character Showcase topic but keep in mind that this is meant to be fun as opposed to any sort of contest.

I will go ahead and get the discussion started with the following questions:

1. Based upon my readings from the various Bron-related topics on the forum, I get the impression that Bron is one of the more polarizing characters in the fandom. Or, at least he was back when he made his debut in the series. What is your general impression of the explanation for why Bron was absent for so long? Do you feel that the explanation holds up under scrutiny?

2. What are your general impressions of Bron as a character?

Saurus Rock: Member Hall of Fame / 2021 Tiebreakers
« on: October 02, 2021, 11:17:07 AM »
Good morning, everyone!

As you might have noticed, we have some ties in the award voting this year. For this reason we will have tiebreaker votes for:

The Feedback Award (Tie between rhombus and Flathead);

LBT Discussion Award (Tie between Gentle Sharptooth and chomper 94); and

The Proactive Member Runner-up (Tie between Gentle Sharptooth and rhombus for runner-up)

Voting is open to everyone who voted, except for the members involved in a tiebreak (in which case you would abstain from the votes you are competing for). If there is a tie at the end of the voting, the admins will have to decide who wins the runner-up.

Voting will run for 8 days and will end on Sunday October 10, midnight forum time.

I will keep a running tally down below:

Feedback Award:
Flathead: 6
rhombus: 2

LBT Discussion Award:
Gentle Sharptooth: 4
Chomper94: 3

Please don't forget that there is only one week remaining if you wish to nominate one of your stories for the fanfic awards. Right now we only have two entries.

Well, it is that time of year again. For many of these categories it was difficult to narrow my choices down due to the fact that there was a plentiful supply of worthy candidates. That being said, with one exception, I have finally made my decisions.  :yes

Though I must give a shoutout to zero-point for his excellent commission work this year for my upcoming Seven Hunters book project, I have not really been keeping up with the fanart projects on the forum. As such, and despite the plentiful talent on display on the forum, I will need to abstain from voting for the fanart section this year.

There have been several members which have given constructive feedback in both the fanfiction section and the fanart sections of the forum. However, the contributions of Flathead770 have been especially notable in the fanart section, providing comments on nearly every new offering. As such I do not hesitate to cast my vote for them.

Friendly Member
The friendly member award is always a challenge on the forum due to this little corner of the Internet having no shortage of friendly members who are willing to offer a kind word, or genuine help. Despite the tense competition in this regard, my vote must go to Mouse-a-saur. She has been a kind presence throughout the forum, but especially in the Ask Me sections of the forum.

LBT Discussion
For me, this was the award for which there was no competition this year. I do not hesitate to cast my vote for Gentle Sharptooth. He has been a constant presence in the character discussion topics and in the character showcases. In each case, he has contributed to the constructive discussions in each of those topics.

Helpful Member
This is yet another award for which, in my opinion, there is no competition. Mumbling’s efforts in keeping the forum newsletter going and her contributions in managing this forum make her the only candidate which I can vote for in this category.

Proactive Member
As others have said before me, DiddyKF1’s work on the LBT 7 voiceover project truly shows a great dedication to the effort. As such, he has earned my vote for the Proactive Member this year.

Chapter 37: The Crossing Begins

The long-awaited crossing of the river into enemy territory begins. At the same time both rainbowfaces struggle with their own respective challenges. As Chronos debates on how to escape from his predicament, Logos struggles to stay one step ahead of Questor's assassins. All the while, the plots of the hidden runners finally burst forth once more into open combat.

First, let me warmly welcome you to our little corner of the Internet.

Thank you very much for sharing your personal story with us.  I am sorry to hear that you and your mother are going through this.  Cancer is a horrible burden on both those afflicted with the condition and also with their loved ones. I can only hope that your mother's remaining time is fulfilling and lived to the fullest.  Rest assured that we in the forum will stand with you during this difficult time, and will offer a sympathetic ear.
