Excellence in Angel Fanfiction from Slashing The Angel
Excellence in Angel Fanfiction from Slashing The Angel
"This month the award goes to someone with artistic talent to spare. The QUEEN BEE of slashy websites, the favoured darling of the technoamish masses seeking favors, this chick has created more spinning, moving, glowing, blinking parts of more websites than anyone I know. And she brings a level of enthusiasm, creativity and skill to each one that belies the fact she must be bored silly with all of us going "Av, can you please..." But that's just a small part of why Av earns the March Spinning Griffin Award. Yea, she kicks ass with manipulating naked Angels. Yea, her website ((Eternal Nightcap, in case you've been living in a crypt with a blinding chip in your head for the last year)) is quite simply, THE quintessential Angel/Spike site, complete with witty sarcasm, lustful prose and some of the godamn fall over and die laughing funny maniped pics and things to do. And yea, I worship the digitally optimized ground this woman walks on. But there's more to Av than the visual arts.Avarice started writing slash.. maybe a year ago? And she has become a force to be reckoned with in the worlds of angst, smut and ongoing plot device alike. No mean feat.Her four part To Sire With Love is a tale I come back to again and again for my loving/dominating smut fix. I am never dissapointed at its ability to make my toes curl into the carpet. Her Crazy Gaelic Named Fics are a dreamy, creepy, lush peek inside the brains of our favorite vamps. Written with her deft pen and quick wit, they are a landmark to judge "Angel dreams" fic against. And her ongoing REM series (not yet archived here) has progressed so beautifully that part 9 actually made me pound my desk in frustration at Angel's lunkheadedness. ((Which was after I realized I needed a cool shower following the flashback scenes...)) So Av, this month, for Excellence in Overall Presentation of Angel, the Spinning Griffin Award goes to you! Congratulations grrlie! You have SOOOO earned it!!" Received 5/3/2001

Fic Recommendation from Defying the Stereotype - Appearances Series
"The February 2003 Award goes to The Appearance Series by Avarice. This trilogy of fics constitutes a wonderfully laid-back and astute character study of both Duo and Trowa as a friendship develops between them after the wars. It's full of so many memorable gems - everything from vivid and unique physical images to poignant insights into the psychologies of both characters. Avarice breaks the mold by dealing with two characters who rarely share 'screen' time in either the Gundam WIng series or in fanfiction. Her treatments of both characters and their relationship are both sympathetic and complex and she never resorts to the hackneyed fandom clichés surrounding either Trowa or Duo." Received 02/2003

Fic Recommendation from Fanworkrecs - Appearances Series
"2x3x2 is not generally a pairing I enjoy, mainly because most fics I read just don't seem to pull the pairing off convincingly. Trowa always seems to be portrayed as so sexually/emotionally/physically abused that he's an emotional eunuch, and Duo's the slutty babbler who brings him out of his shell. However, there are always exceptions, and Avarice is one. Her characterization of the 2 pilots is wonderful - Trowa as quiet, serious, a bit nervous in the company of others but still willing to make an effort to be friendly to those he cares about, and Duo is a mature young man who is remarkably talented at reading others and seeing what needs to be done to make them comfortable. However, he's still the jokester, still laughing and having fun - he just knows when enough is enough..." Received 2002

Fic recommendation from The Darker Side Of Sunnydale - Codladh Buanan Bas
In "Codladh Buanan Bás" Avarice takes us into the mind of Angel. Or, more specifically, into his dreams. The scenes flow into each other, details changing almost without us noticing, people wandering in and out, symbols and portents floating around like so much featherdust. Avarice has done a wonderful job capturing the etherealness of the dreamworld; a place where everything makes sense right then, only to dissolve into half-remembered phrases and puzzling scenes upon awakening. And Spike as the dreamweaver is brilliant." Fic Recommendation & archived @ The Darker Side of Sunnydale 23/1/2001

Excellence in Character Development for Once Upon A Time
Excellence in Character Development for Once Upon A Time
"Awarded to Avarice, writer of many a Boy meets Boy fanfic and webmaster of, among others, Whee! I'm Naked! Av-Av has amazed us with fics such as Always the Blade, Slippery When Wet (that was co-written with the Goddess herself), The Power of Creativity and Precious Little Else, but it was not until Once Upon a Time that I could begin to guess her genius, and with her Chalk and Charcoal series, I was sold. If there's anyone besides Sandra that knows Ty better than Av, I surely haven't heard from them. And it isn't only the lovely redhead that gains a new side from the aforementioned Mik/Ty fiction, the silent artsy Russian we've gotten to know as Harley's boyfriend has gotten a new dimension from the words on Avarice's paper. I don't think it humanly possible to develop another's characters like Av has done those two, and I am pleased to give to her the October 2001 Award of Excellence in Character Development."

"Pure goodness. One of those hallucinatory, dreamlike fics, filled with sounds and images that stick with you long after you're done reading, Codladh Buanan Bás- or "the crazy Gaelic-title fic" as I call it- is a delicious little piece of Angel insight. Flashback, dreamfic, poetic madness and that nutty "Walla-walla-bing-bang" song all blend together into a seamless whole that will you leave you shivering and saying "hmmm" reflectively by turns. Once again, Av, in her infinite wisdom, has laid Angel's insides out for all to see, and the result is chilling, perfect beauty." Received 11/12/2000
