The timezone advantage permits me to go first! Yay!

I am so delighted at winning this, given the phenomenal calibre of the stories submitted. The Wing Swing excels itself every year in terms of the unusualness of the pairings and the quality of the writing.

I want to thank babylil for organising, which we all know is the worst job in the world, rfkfortheusa who stepped gamely up to the plate for the last minute beta (and who comforted me by watching to the end with me when all of our other friends gave the show away), and all the other entrants - these stories were awesome.

And finally the women of The West Wing. I, for one, will miss you all.

Wow! I am wholly and completely unprepared for this.

I guess, first of all, thank you, because this was unexpected, but extremely happy-making. I'm ...floored.

Thank you to babylil for organising, and to everyone who participated, and voted - because there are some amazing stories attached to this, and just ...Wow.

Umm.. Thank you!!

*emo moment*

Dammit, I'm going to miss my fandom.

Thank you to all, especially of course you, babylil. Wing Swing is one of very few fandom institutions I can think of that started in the glory days and stayed the course. Here's to it.

Wow. I have no idea what to say, except I'm really pleased. And grateful to everybody for following along on Jenna's bitter and twisted ride.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me. I've never won anything before. This is fun.

Thank you so much to babylil for organizing this. It's such a great challenge.

And special thanks to lifeasanamazon, because it's always somehow for her.
