Title: Yellow Brick Road
Author: emmaren / RenEmma
Author's email:...
Rating: NC-17
Category: Best WIP
Why nominating?: The plot is very creative. She describes a Kagome after Naraku's defeat who is not the happy girl that we all expect. Also, she is able to blend two seemingly incompatible concepts, Inuyasha and the yellow brick road of Oz, very smoothly, while keeping the integrity of characters intact. Overall, I see much potential in this fanfic.

Title: Progression
Author: Sidhe
Author's email: Unknown
Rating: NC-17
Category: Best WIP
Why you are nomming it: It manages to be an AU highschool fic (of a sort) that isn't completely vapid, keeps the characters in-character, and is just swimming with sexual tension. I loved every single word of this story.


I just wanted to ask if self nominations are permitted?

Yep, you can nominate yourself.

Nomination submission

Title: The Preferential Slave
Author: Lady Sianna
Author's email:
Rating: M for later chapters
Category: Best WIP
Why I'm nominating it: I am the author so my opinions may be bias, but I think the story is pretty well written. It has an element of mystery which I think some people enjoy. In addition, I still have quite a few surprises in mind for the story. I've tried very hard to keep the characters true, and I've tried to avoid many of the cliches I've seen throughout fandom. Overall I think it's a really good story.,com_ewriting/Itemid,153/chapter,1566/func,chapterinfo/story,404/type,0/

Title: Pack Law
Author: psyco_chick32
Author's email:
Rating: X for later chapters
Category: Best WIP
Why I'm nominating it: I'm the author, but I've gotten great feedback on the story so far. Though it has several OCs, I'm trying to keep story very Inu-Tachi based; it's a fic set in the present that tries to avoid the usual cliches.

Another self-nomination.

Title: Encore [Sesshomaru/Rin and some Inuyasha/Kagome]
Author: Isha
Author's email:
Rating: Going to be R in the later chapters.
Category: Best WIP
Why nominating?: Well, I'm probably biased, but I've been getting good reviews, so I'm guessing it's pretty good, even if I do say so myself. I plan to tie in the manga ending with the plot, even though it is slightly AU, and I hope to subvert the 'Sesshomaru-is-a-well adjusted-super-successful-fabulously-rich-guy-in-the-modern-times' cliche.
