babylil: Awards

Of the twenty-six who signed up to participate in the wingswing this year, thirteen of you produced entries. I'd like to thank you all for taking part. I'm reading and feedbacking every entry, so if I haven't gotten to yours yet, rest assured that I will.

Now we come to the awards. I'm officially cutting off submissions for the awards now. Anybody reading this who's still working on an entry should feel free to go ahead and post it to the community at any time, but you're now too late to be included in the voting.

This year voting is being done in the form of an LJ poll, mostly because it's quick and easy and I'm enormously busy right now. Simply select the story you consider most deserving of each award, and submit your votes.

As voting is in LJ poll form it requires an LJ in order to vote. If you wish to vote and do NOT have an LJ, please email your votes (only one in each category) to wingswing[at]googlemail[dot]com. They will be counted along with the poll votes.

Voting is open as of now, and closes May 21st.

Voting FormCollapse )

ETA: LJ appears to have screwed up the poll and, despite me selecting for results to be viewable to 'none' it's allowing people to look at the results after they've voted. As there's no way to edit a poll after it's been posted, I'm deleting it and continuing the voting by way of screened comments. If you've already voted in the poll your vote HAS been counted, you do not need to vote again. If you have yet to vote and wish to do so, copy and paste the list of entries under the cut into a comment and delete all but the entry you wish to vote for in each category.

mandysbitch: Just Another Word by cgb (Laurie - "Sam's Prostitute Girlfriend"/ Nikki Wade, Bad Girls)

Title: Just Another Word
Author: cgb (aka mandysbitch
Fandoms: Bad Girls/ The West Wing
Pairing: Nikki/ Laurie
Rating: Mild NC-17
Summary: “Nikki ran all the way to New York.”
Author’s Notes: Written for the wingswing 2006.

Bad Girls is a story about a women's prison in the UK. Nikki (pictured in my icon) is a hot (really hot) inmate. She’s also a lesbian who manages to convincingly sell the concept to the equally hot Governor of the prison (Helen). Their love affair is torrid, and way complicated. This story riffs on what might have happened if Nikki had done as she said she would and escaped to the US after her prison break.

This story features a cameo appearance by Madeleine Hampton. The woman who (with a lot of help from gatefiction and a little help from myself) started the Wing Swing.

Props to babylil who kept it going. That’s our girl.

projectcyborg: Habeas Corpus (Evelyn Baker Lang/Laura Roslin)

title: Habeas Corpus
fandom: The West Wing x Battlestar Galactica
pairing: Evelyn Baker Lang/Laura Roslin (also Lang/OMCs)
rating: NC-17ish
summary: the Great Writ of habeas corpus allows the Judicial Branch to play a necessary role in maintaining this delicate balance of governance, serving as an important judicial check on the Executive's discretion in the realm of detentions. (Justice O'Connor, Hamdi v. Rumsfeld)

It was one of those events: everyone talks about where they were when they heard.

meeshy: Solace Janet Fraiser/Annabeth Schott

Solace by Meesh

Pairing: Janet Fraiser (SG-1)/Annabeth Schott (The West Wing)
Rating: Suitable For all (PG)
Category: Angst, AU, character death, crossover, hurt/comfort.
Content Warnings: None really.

Spoilers: Up to Season 7's "Election Day" for The West Wing (none for SG-1 but its AU-Heroes!)

Disclaimer: Not mine, mostly Aaron Sorkin’s and MGM’s.

Authors Notes: This is for wingswing where I picked Janet Fraiser as my crossover character, and was asked to pair her with Annabeth Schott…. This fic is in its entirety babylil’s fault – she convinced me to sign up! (Though she did a great beta job, thank you babylil!
This will undoubtedly suck because I haven’t had time to think of any sort of plot. (And yes, its a week late!)

sweetly_savage: Sorry for the lateness.

Title: Illicit

Pairing: Jenna Jacobs/Ellie Bartlet

Rating: Adult

Spoilers: The Midterms and Ellie, I suppose.

Summary: "I don't say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does."

Author's Notes: Warning - this fic contains anti-gay sentiment, Bible quotations, and lesbian sex. This combination may not be comfortable for some readers.

The views expressed in this fic are my interpretations of Jenna Jacob's view and should not be confused with my own, which are vastly different.

All quotes from the Bible were taken from the King James Version. The last quote is Aaron Sorkin's.
