Winners! We have Contest Winners!  

As always, I have to say that the real winners are the fans who get to enjoy the stories and art and cool creations submitted here, so thanks again A MILLION to everyone who participated. You have no idea how much I love this seasonal event.

Winners can say thanks in this thread and peoples can give their congrats but winners please send me your addresses in PM (if you think I don’t already have it!) so I can get your prizes out. Maybe I’ll get a chance to beat the holiday rush at the post this year, but don’t count on it! I actually have all the prizes “in stock” this year with the exception of the pheleon plushie that will be made soon.

Click on the names of the winners to view or read their lovely works again!

Please pardon my Ishida and Orihime plushies showing off prizes in some of the pics below—they somehow got in front of the camera and started posing.

Winners in the IshiHime fanfic Category:

First place and winner of the super cool new Bleach manga calendar with new Espada art by Kubo and really cute Ishida stickers to mark your special occasions:

“The Scientific Method” by vesperh

Second place and winner of a hentai IshiHime doujin and a cute Ishida sleepshirt (for your gf, Adam---I’ll throw in some Nii-sama trinkets with the candy too):

Winner of the new edition of the Bleach novel Letters From the Other Side featuring new artwork by Kubo and the cutest IchiRuki story:

Love to all, happy birthday to me, and may you all have happy holidays filled with Zomari snowmen like in the new Bleach manga calendar (see, I'm still advertising your products, Kubo-sensei!)

lol, I can only do it once a year, Kaya! And my birthday's actually tomorrow. But it makes me happy to give back a little to the fandom that makes ME happy all year round. *sparkles*

*spits out tea*

...t-the FtB DVD was the prize for the FANART category!? O_O


...I - I don't know what to say! Thanks to - well, everyone, really. And especially to you, debbie. I still can't believe you're giving away all this stuff as prizes... AND ON YOUR BIRTHDAY! You should be the one getting tons of stuff right about now, really.

Sketchy, I'm totally gonna wear that shirt at university and tell everyone it's by one of my favourite artists EVER! :DDD

Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS to all of the winners! :DDD And a great thank you to everyone who participated - this comm really has some of the most awesome people ever. :3

The Orihime and Uryuu plushies look a tad unhappy to be there, debbie. XD Uryuu especially, he really gives off a 'Stop looking at me OR ELSE' vibe. Did you... interrupt their 'alone' time to make them give the presentations, by any chance? :P

And Ishida was actually embarrassed that I dared to pose him next to that scandalous picture of Rukia--you see he was trying to cover her delicate area with his hand there.... well, Orihime asked him why he was patting Rukia and then he got all embarrassed and....

The plushies were blushing.

Happy (early) birthday to DEBBIE! Oh, you are so wonderful. Thank you again for yet another lovely contest. The works that came out of it - so many wonderful arts and fanfics. The fandom appreciates it heartily.

And congratulations to ALL the contest winners, you all did such a lovely job. <3

Yay! =D I'm so very happy for all the contestants, the winners, and especially the soon to be Birthday girl! Thanks so much for hosting such a wonderfully creative and generous contest. <333 I wonder if Kubo checks it out to humor himself with fan-awesomeness...*ponders*
Adam Eppadam_epp on November 18th, 2009 08:11 pm (UTC)
Thanks for votes and thanks Deb for the goodies. I've been accumulating items for my girlfriend for Christmas (and her birthday), so anything Byakuya-related can go into the big package I'll be sending. Also, I wasn't aware that my own votes in the poll would create a third-place tie (oh well). Congratulations to the others, too!
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 18th, 2009 10:56 pm (UTC)

Oh I'd be soooo scared to send one big package way over there--promise me you'll super register and track it and everything! I'll send you some other lovelies for her then! I have the cutest Byakuya stuff!

It was a really close little race there. I didn't know what I was going to do if I had three first place winners because I didn't want to tear the calendar into parts (although, actually, that's quite do-able!) I'm glad there was another winner though because I really wanted to give away that Leek notebook--it's so cute.

Congrats to the other winners! Thanks to all the voters and to Debbie for hosting the contest and providing the wonderful prizes. Happy (early) Birthday, Debbie!

(I'll send you a PM with my address as soon as I get the okay from my parents -- I wasn't really expecting to win :O Hope that's okay!)
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 18th, 2009 11:00 pm (UTC)

Hope your parents say yes! They can always provide a work address or the address of a friend's workplace if they don't want to give out your home address. I understand internet safety. Also, if you'd like, since your prize is really a small one, I could work it out so you get a gift certificate for an anime shop over the internet but I'd rather send you a package with a card and some Japanese candies (I have melon and apple gummies this year and some other silly things).
lorie_fanlorie_fan on November 18th, 2009 10:09 pm (UTC)
Wow. Thanks to everyone who voted for me! When I looked at the standings yesterday, I was quite happy with my middle-of-the-road 4th place. I guess a late-night vote (which sounds like maybe it was Adam) bumped me up a bit.

And thank you to Debbie for holding the contest in the first place. It's become my yearly tradition to submit something for it, so thanks for the impetus to write the only fanfic I ever write.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 18th, 2009 10:57 pm (UTC)

I'm so glad you won! Thank you for entering every year, and I LOVED THIS STORY. I really did. I'm still smiling about Kenpachi.

Popping in to say congrats to all the winners! :D And to everyone else who participated too! It was nice to see so much awesome creativity~ :3 I know I'm still new to the place, but you guys are really welcoming, so keep being awesome! :D

Congratulations to all of the winners! There was some really beautiful art!

And happy birthday, Debbie! Hope we made it fun with all of this Ishida-ness XD
