Breathe Me 


Best New Moon Story Complete

Best Use of a Parent

Canon or AU Story that knocks you off your feet Complete



Spell My Heart

Love Conquers All Novella


Our dear little One Pushy Fox got nominated for

In The Blood

Best Love Triangle WIP

Canon or AU Story that knocks you off your feet WIP


And the fabulous Betti got a nod with

Your True Colors

AH story that knocks you off your feet (WIP)


Most of these fics would not have been made possible without the help of a beta of some sort. A beta is someone who you go to when you need guidance. Someone who will tell you the truth about what you wrote and who will take the time out of their day to double check everything you have written just to make sure it all lines up. A beta is an author’s best friend and confidant and Uhyesplease is a pure miracle worker! She is beta to “In the Blood”, “Dazzling”, and “Your True Colors”. I would like to recognize her for all her freaktastic beta work with an award of her very own.


So, get out there kids and let’s make these underdog fics sparkle with Indie Twific Awards!!

  3. We I know that uhyesplease deserves mad props for putting up with my ramshackle writing. If you all saw what I wrote before she got her hands on it and slapped me into place you’d laugh your butts off and I certainly wouldn’t get rec’ed for anything.
