Final Bleach Spine and IshiHime Contest Winners  

We have the final Bleach spine and it's a troubled looking Ichigo and part of Ramen-guy's face! (eta: the spine looks incomplete doesn't it? It's supposed to be the last one but I keep thinking there has to be another one!)
Thanks to Zan of BA!

Thanks to everyone who voted in the polls for the IshiHime fanart and fanfic competitions. The competition is just lagniappe--the best part was watching all the wonderful fanwork come in--the entries and gifts brightened my birthday and I've got most of them up on my website now (http://www.debbiechan.com/main.html  <--still being updated. If you'd like me to link your art to your DA site or website and I haven't, PM me).

Now, announcement of the winners.

In the fanfic category:

1st place and winner of a $25 amazon.com gift certificate: The Long Sit by enisy

2nd place and winner of an Ishida and Orihime folder with notecards:                                                   
Of His and Her Circumstances [Part 1] by tsubameongaku

3rd place and winner of playing deck cards and postcards: In The Sky With Diamonds by nendo_chan

In the fanart category:

1st place and winner of 2000 Deviant Art Points: Guardian [MMV] by yorleni

2nd place tie: A Never Ending Dream by luminous85  and take a nap by moga_moka
(Prizes available for 2nd place winners: $15 amazon gift certificate, 1200 Deviant Art points, IshiHime doujinshi. PM me with your wish--first come, first served! I don't know how else to make it any more fair! XD)

Special deebie award of recognition:

I want to award the fanfic "The Long Sit" by enisy  with a special prize. We didn't have a judged competition this year because we didn't anticipate very many entries, but if we'd had the level of judged competition in this contest as in some others I'm sure that this fic would've received lots of attention and accolades. It's a beautifully crafted piece, and I'm especially touched by this gift because it comes from an author writing outside her particular shipping fandom. I always appreciate it when writers push outside their comfort zones and any gesture of shipping good will deserves ... sooo many cookies. So, given that I'm a horrible baker, I'm going to give enisy a the gift fic of her choice, by me, about any subject she wants, about any pairing she wants. XD. My pleasure. PM me--your wish is my command, enisy . It will be a short fic because I'm challenged for time lately but I look forward to challenging my writing chops again.

Congratulations to the winners, though I must say every entry was quite enjoyable. <3

Ah, the last spine pic. It is quite unsurprising, but I like it.

OMG...You can't imagine how happy i am!!! I feel so honored, i'm so glad everyone liked my work and they understand the meaning of it, Ishida is a character i really adore, he's one of the characters i understand the most on Bleach.

Thankyou to everyone who voted for me, and Thankyou to each member of this community for making this possible.

Specially thanks to Debbie for giving me the opportunity of being in this contest for the first time, and i hope i can be a part of this in the upcoming years. <3

You have no idea how much I love your MMV. I'm not a big follower of AMVs but I do love MMVs and I've always admired your work. This one was not just pretty--the editing and song choice fit the character of Ishida so well and told the story of his relationship with Orihime so perfectly. I was moved to tears. T___T So were so many IshiHime fans that saw it. I'm honored that you made it for us.

And thank you for the lovely graphics from the vid as well.

Congrats to the winners ^_^ <3333
Yeah, we knew Ichigo wasn't going to look happy, but that is down right troubled and his eyes look like he is asking for help T____T.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 29th, 2010 03:45 pm (UTC)

Such a difference from the picture of Ichigo on the first spine. Damn Sensei and his parallels sometimes. I wish the spines had ended on a more upbeat note but in a way, the current arc has a comedic feel right now so I guess it's okay for the spine itself to be more spooky.

And I'm still verklempt over your bday art gifts to me. I showed them to my sister who was stunned. She doesn't ship IshiHime at all but you arts are so marvelous they speak across fanart borders.

*dies* I don't believe it. Thank you so much! I'm so indescribably thrilled right now!! Words can't express my gratitude properly to those who have voted for me and the other winners. Oh how I do appreciate the love Ishida(and this year Ishihime) gets here at this time of year. Love to all!
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 29th, 2010 03:50 pm (UTC)

Ah hahahaha, I don't know how else to say this but I'm so proud of you. I've always loved your love for Ishida and the love for him that shines through all your arts. <3

There's gotta be another one! (Hopefully...)
Last year they had 53 volumes of Jump, and there's still another month left in the year, and even with the long break that Jump goes on for the holidays, wouldn't that leave one more chapter/spine pic for the year or...?
I'm probably wrong though. :P

Re: There's gotta be another one! (Hopefully...)

Oh I'm glad to hear that! 53 volumes last year! I bet there will be another spine this year then!

Oh, wow! Thanks, everybody, and big congrats to not only the other winners, but everyone who participated! This contest was a treasure trove of IshiHime, which is usually (and sadly) hard to find.
_debbiechan__debbiechan_ on November 30th, 2010 03:15 pm (UTC)

Yes I knoooowwww. One of the reasons I hold the contest--to bring out the fanwork for my OTP.

Thank you so much for participating--I'm so happy you did. I'll PM you if you don't PM me first but I do need your contact info for the prize! <3

Debbie, I'm so touched! Thank you -- and thanks to everyone who voted! I'd be happy to "branch out" again, when the occasion presents itself. Your 'ship was honestly a lot of fun to write. :)

And what a great birthday in general! The participants all cranked out fanfiction and fanart of stunning, unquestionable quality. Bleachness really has the best contests in the fandom, both in terms of organization and in terms of content. <3

Much love to you all ~

And I've already got ideas for your gift. <3

I didn't expect that much votes since i'm a newbie here. Thanks again^__^ About the prize, I didn't have anything in my mind when I joined this. And I'm living in Thailand btw. Please consider that, debbie-san.

also, congratulations! Luminous-san, Yorleni-san.

_debbiechan_: IshiHime by Orin_debbiechan_ on November 30th, 2010 03:18 pm (UTC)

I've sent packages to Thailand no problem before! It's one of the few countries I've sent to and never lost a package!

Luminous already claimed the doujin so you have your choice of a gift certificate (which can be given via email or Deviant Art points--if you have a deviant art account--do you?) Please PM me with your choice or I'll contact you eventually for your address and/or email. I love your drawing so much (like others have said I'd love a doujin in your style --it's so sweet!) AND I'M SO HAPPY FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION! <3

I loved your work Tsubame san, I loved the AU a lot, for me was creative and really good! the idea of them creating and RPG game called SS and all of them discussing about hollow design was so much fun to read.
