Title: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 01, 2014, 05:07:52 AM
Our next featured story will be #90 on the list! I can't even believe it!! So for the next 10 I would like to feature who you would consider the top ten writers/authors on the site. That's the thing, they have to have a story on this site to be included as a featured author/story.

Of course most of these people will have already been featured and if they only have one story, it might also have already been featured but since it's a special occasion, I am willing to bend that one rule. Most of the authors have more than one story anyway lol

I originally was just going to feature my top ten but I realize it wouldn't be fair to some since I have different tastes than a lot of you! So, give me yours as well! Then what I'll do is try my best to spread the love around a bit! Keep in mind it's all opinion. We all can't and don't' love the same things. Some of my favorite stories might be some of your least favorite and I know for a fact some of your favorites I hate lol It's your own personal taste and preference.

I really do hope all of you give some input! If not, you can't argue with the end result!

I'll give you the choice of either posting your lists right in here or if you feel more comfortable PMing them to me (if you don't want people to see who you are picking because you're afraid you'll offend some) then do it that way. The results will show up on the features waiting line! :)

Is this our top ten of all time, or should we stick to current authors who are on the forum to discuss?


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 01, 2014, 09:15:24 AM
I would go for all time. We could always discuss in their absence


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Carter-Orange on June 01, 2014, 01:32:57 PM
I'll be back to post mine after I've thought about it :)


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 01, 2014, 04:35:30 PM
I will be back with a list lol.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 01, 2014, 05:48:09 PM
I know I have to go check and see that some of mine have stories posted on the site. I'm not sure lol


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 01, 2014, 08:00:26 PM
This is in no particular order cause yeah, I can't rank awesomeness LOL.

Mare
Julie
Mersey
Jenna
Chaos
Reb/Rebellious_One
Honey/Kelly
Julilly
starbeamz/Sarah
Sakabelle/Steph

That was hard cause some of my all time faves don't have their fics on the site LOL. So I had to go checking before I made my list.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 02, 2014, 01:35:09 PM
Thanks for your picks, Rose!

Keep sending them in. Most of you are doing PM's. What I'll do is tally them all and then use the ten with the most mentions.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 11, 2014, 04:26:23 AM
I'm really kinda curious to see the list, there's a lot of talent here lol.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 11, 2014, 06:18:31 AM
We need some more people to answer this because even though there are a few that everyone has mentioned, there's a million ties which I don't want to be the one who chooses.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 11, 2014, 06:51:38 AM
Lol aww, send her lists then lazy peoples!


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Carter on June 11, 2014, 10:23:32 AM
I dont even know if i have a top ten atm...everytim e i have tried to add someone or a fave story it nevet adds...but let me go check my list.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 11, 2014, 11:30:14 AM
Even if you only have a few, that's okay to. Heck even if you only mention one person. I am basically just looking for ten people and right now there's about 4 that are tied for 5 or  places.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 12, 2014, 03:21:33 AM
lol yeah I can see why ties are a problem here.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 12, 2014, 04:03:38 AM
At this point it looks like we do have ten but there are about three people tied for that tenth slot.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: jess20 on June 12, 2014, 04:45:13 AM
Ok so I only have 3 (thanks for answering my question Mare!):

Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 12, 2014, 07:10:56 PM
Okay guys we really need some more votes! We've gotten 9 voters so far which is great! But right now we have a 5 way tie for the last two slots! LOL



Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 13, 2014, 06:03:25 AM
Geeze lol. I guess that many people are that awesome?


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 13, 2014, 06:09:56 AM
Yes, or most of us are just a little awesome. lol


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 13, 2014, 06:17:10 AM
Also, don't forget guys this is a top ten of all time so you can think way back to your favorites! If you aren't sure if they have a story on this site just do a search by title. Put the name of the story into the box and see if it comes up. If you search by author you might not have any luck but stories, you will! You never know at one point in time, almost everyone has posted on AC. Sadly not everyone, but more than you might think anyway lol



Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: emilo on June 15, 2014, 07:19:04 PM
I didn't even see this until just now, so here's mine (In no particular order, of course, since it's public-- or Mare, would it be easier to do some tie-breaking if I sent you a PM with them actually ranked?)

Pengi
Mare
RokOfAges75

Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 15, 2014, 07:30:08 PM
Nope, that doesn't really matter because I am just going by how many people say who, type thing. Thanks, Emily! Hopefully this will help Or make more ties lol we shall see!


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 15, 2014, 07:47:04 PM
That helped! As of right now we have ten. Three people who were fighting for that last place got knocked down (for now) 

You guys should keep sending me your lists. I'm kind of surprised I haven't gotten some of you yet. This countdown to 100 doesn't start until August. We have one more person (90) before we start counting down with 91 - 100. Right now there is a top 3 but all the others have tied numbers. lol


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 15, 2014, 07:49:46 PM
Just one other request, not relating to you Emily, although I'm not sure because I honestly don't know one of those people...but please make sure you are giving me their pen names when you send these in and not their real names because I might not know who you are talking about and hence, they might not get the correct vote and yes I said hence! LOL


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Carter on June 16, 2014, 11:00:01 AM
i only have two...

LenniLuvsBrian
Teri

I know Teri doesnt write anymore...but not sure about Lenni...but anytime I have tried to add favorites it doesnt show up...is it ok if I pick some people? cause I have a ton of favorite people I read from but just none of them are showing up on my list.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 16, 2014, 11:35:21 AM
Thanks carter & yes, you can pick whoever you like. They don't have to be on your list on ac or anything.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: emilo on June 16, 2014, 12:13:11 PM
Pretty sure mine are all pen names.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 16, 2014, 12:36:51 PM
Yup, they are. I just had to look up the one I have never heard of before. lol


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 18, 2014, 06:11:36 PM
You guys have until the end of the month to get your votes in for the AC top ten. Then I'll reveal who made the cut, starting with the honorable mentions!

For the featured stories from August until we hit #100 I'll be putting up a poll as to which story you'd like featured from each member on the list. They will have a say as well of course!

So, keep your picks coming! :)


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Carter on June 24, 2014, 02:20:16 PM

Thank you both!


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 25, 2014, 03:32:59 AM
Yay me for being right!

And yeah of all time is so hard to list lol but I knew there were a few oldie writers I had to mention :).


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 25, 2014, 03:49:58 AM
I'm sad not more of the oldies are being represented. lol


Title: Re: The Top Ten!

:(


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 25, 2014, 04:04:09 AM
But I guess oldie is all relative to how long you've been in the fandom writing wise? Regardless, we still have 4 people fighting for that last spot but those people keep changing LOL


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 25, 2014, 04:26:56 AM
Lmao poor you.

And true, oldies to me are like Whitney, Eboni, Bria and Chaos lol. With chaos the only one who posted here. Geeze I feel old.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 25, 2014, 04:57:39 AM
Same lol I wish Eboni posted on AC

Back when we all needed our own sites or had to be hosted on others. Those were the days. And the only way to give & get feedback was through actual email. Remember those days? *rocks in rocking chair while knitting a hat*

 ;D I'm feeling my age!!!!  I remember the first time I sent feedback to an author, it was Chaos.  I was so nervous! And it seemed that Eboni and I would email each other every other day, just "talking" about her fanfics.   I still have a few that she started, but never posted on her site.   :shrug:  I miss her!

Honestly, that's how I became friends with most of the BSB writers I know now. Because of those initial emails back and forth. Chaos, Swenglish and Jenna were the first people I ever gave feedback to. I felt the same way with Eboni! I remember chatting with her for hours on IM about fanfics, hot fireman and life in general. Also Kat and Amy who both in turn ended up becoming very good friends for life, even though they are both way out of the fanfic world today. Of course Mersey and Maria as well. *sigh*

I also remember the first time I got a feedback for my stories. Those things kind of stuck with you. In a good way!

Sometimes I miss those days. Everything has gotten so impersonal now, if it weren't for the review and respond to review buttons, I'm not sure if anyone would know who is reading what anymore. There seems to be next to no more wanting to reach out to your favorite authors.



Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: balance on June 25, 2014, 12:24:45 PM
I have gotten so bad about sending feedback! :o  But with the summer off, I hope to do better.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 25, 2014, 12:28:38 PM
You are not alone, which is another reason I do the reading challenge. It's nice for the writers to get steady feedback and helps motivate some to even write. The power of a compliment is an amazing thing! lol

I gave all of my feedback through Yahoogroups. Lol

Oh yes, there were those too! I used to have a mailing list through yahoo. lol


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: ForeverFrick on June 25, 2014, 05:37:30 PM
I'm brainstorming my list... I'm glad some people posted in here so I don't have to look up pen names!

I also love the old school fan fic conversation! I loved getting feedback via email! It always made my day. And I loved my little website. Haha

As much as I hate to say this, Eboni was one of those ppl that I loved but then when I went to read again years later I was like "why did I like this?" Especially when I realized she named female characters after herself.

Anyway, no hijacks, top 10s, yadda yadda lol


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on June 25, 2014, 06:36:38 PM
I think we all have stories like that too. That we initially loved and thought they were the best thing ever only to read again and think, okay was I high on crack? LOL

A lot of people put their names in their own stories back then. I don't think I ever did though. LOL


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on June 25, 2014, 08:35:59 PM
LOL there was one by Bria called "Shards of a Shattered Life" that I downloaded years ago and I tried to read it once and was like wtf was I thinking!? My standards, not that high back then.

It's weird I'm probably considered an oldie on here LOL.

I have one...its THE worst fan fic I think I have ever written and I was soooooo proud of it but I read it one day and was like OMG i need to take this down lol...never did...its sadly still up ;)

I dont think I have ever used my "real" name for anything on the internet well other than facebook LOL...i think if I used "carter" people (i.e my MIL) would be wth and then I would have to explain and I hate explaining it lol.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on July 01, 2014, 03:39:40 AM
I wanted to thank all of you for submitting who you felt belonged on the top ten AC writers of all time list. Honestly, we had a much bigger response than I was expecting.

There were 45 names submitted for consideration and from there, the ones with the most votes went on to make it into the top ten. Starting next month, we'll be discussing and celebrating each person, starting with 91 and ending with 100! I still can't believe we are making it to 100! How awesome is that?

So, I will be announcing number ten on our last next week. I want to make sure she knows first. There was a tie for this last place. SO I will announce the runner -up right now.

Our founding father Chaos. I really REALLY hoped he would make the top ten because without him there would be no us. Truth is, he only has one completed story up on the site and it was the first one we ever discussed, so I decided to give the slot to his tie-mate  instead.

But please, if you haven't read the story, "Ground Zero" go check it out!

Awww yes, yay chaos! For without him giving us a home when ff.net booted us, who knows if our fanfic community would be going as strong as it is even now.

And 45 names? Wow I'm impressed.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on July 01, 2014, 03:56:10 AM

Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on July 03, 2014, 04:23:03 PM
Okay time to announce the first member of our top ten authors of all time!

Coming in at number ten...which is actually #91 lol is...

*drum roll*

FILIKLEPTO! aka Hachi AKA Chrissy! :) a girl who goes by many names! lol

So come on in and tell us why you love her so much!!

Normally the next step would be to open a poll and let you decide which of the top ten's stories we will feature but in Chrissy's case she only has two novels on the site. One of which "On the Rails" we have already discussed, so that pretty much leaves "On Nightingale Hill" So in August we will talk about that one!

Again much congrats to her!! :)


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on July 03, 2014, 05:48:23 PM
Yay! I've met her on the 2011 cruise and she's really sweet :).


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: RokofAges75 on July 03, 2014, 08:19:31 PM
Yay Chrissy!  She's a fantastic writer; I just wish she'd update more often!  I love On Nightingale Hill, one of the few fantasy fanfics I got really into.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Purpura Lipstick on July 10, 2014, 11:26:27 AM

Okay Chrissy's thread is officially up! Go on in and say howdy!! :)

I'll be back this weekend to reveal our #9 author and put up her poll!


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on August 02, 2014, 12:14:29 PM
It's time to reveal our #9 author!!

Congrats to one of the queens of angst and bromance...

Jenna!!

Jenna has been around for a very long time. One of our veterans. I know I say this a lot but "Swollen Issues" was one of the very first stories I had ever read. She has a knack for telling great stories and it's no surprise she's great at the medical stuff. I like to call her the original cancer queen!! Even though that sounds like a horrible title to have! LOL (only in BSB fanfic would be that be a compliment!)

I will be making a poll for Jenna with five of her stories when you open the thread.

Please vote for which one you feel should be the featured story next month!

And congrats Jenna!!!

 :notworthy:



Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on August 02, 2014, 12:23:38 PM

Summaries of the stories you have to choose from:

1) You Go I Go: A last minute decision....th e consequences of their actions....
Part one of the Nick and Lizz series

2) Trapped: Something mysterious happens to Brian and all the fingers of blame point to Nick. Can he solve this in time before both his and Brian's lives are changed forever?

3) Toured Out: What really goes on before, during and after concerts when the guys are on tour? Do we really want to know??

4) All I Have To Give: Nick is in a horrible car accident. See how he and his friends deal with the cards fate has dealt him.

5) Altered States: The unexpected and the unexplainable happens to Brian and his world. Brian slowly shuts Nick out, refusing his help but will their strong bond as "brothers" allow this to happen?


* You can vote for two stories and you have all the way up until August 30th to vote!


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on August 02, 2014, 12:49:22 PM
Yay Jenna! She's one of my fave old school authors.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: RokofAges75 on August 02, 2014, 02:58:10 PM
Me too!!  I think she's the only one from the era I started reading in who's still writing (from time to time).


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on August 09, 2014, 08:41:05 AM
Just a reminder to come in and vote for which story of Jenna's you would like to see featured next month! Even if you haven't ever read them. Vote!! You're allowed two per person. :)


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on August 23, 2014, 04:32:18 PM
Just a reminder to keep voting. Right now we have a tie!


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on August 30, 2014, 03:38:00 AM
There is a tie. So someone please change your vote from one of the losing stories to either of the ones on top before tomorrow night, okie dokie?


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on August 31, 2014, 05:10:53 PM
I have officially locked the polls. Looks like we'll be discussing  "Trapped" :)

Is anyone curious to see who author #8 is?

Guesses?

I'll be posting their poll up tomorrow night!

Post by: mare on September 01, 2014, 04:41:44 AM
Stay tuned to see who our #8 author will be... :)


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on September 01, 2014, 09:59:23 AM
It's time to reveal author number 8!

See what I did there?

Congrats to Jen! Aka evergreenwrite r83!!  :bsb:

I reset the poll at on the first post with the three stories Jen chose for us to pick from. You can pick two of them and at any time you can change your vote. The polling will end on the 30th.

So, yay to our author # 8! :)

Post by: mare on September 01, 2014, 11:07:14 AM
Uh...someone voted for n/a? Lol


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on September 02, 2014, 02:36:36 PM
This is driving me crazy, so can the two people who voted for n/a please change your votes to whatever it is you meant to vote for. The only reason there are n/a options is because it won't allow me to take away choices and only to add them. Since the prior poll had five choices, two were left over. If you are voting n/a because it doesn't matter to you which story we discuss, then just don't vote. Lol

Thanks,

Anal me

Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on September 19, 2014, 05:55:01 AM
Don't forget to vote for your favorite story by Jen! Right now there is a tie!

Post by: evergreenwriter83 on September 20, 2014, 06:31:03 AM
I'm honored to be in the top ten! I know my writing has slowed to the pace of a snail with reoccurring amnesia.  I see a day about 11 months from now when I can sit down, slowly caress my master's degree, and get back to writing for FUN and enjoyment.  It's extremely frustrating to fall asleep, dream up a story, wake up, and realize that I have to learn the whole MARC programming language for an assignment due in three days.  My characters are holding protest marches in my head -- which isn't a bad vision because I try to believe that Nick would be one of those protesters that only marches in a sign and tighty whities.  Or maybe naked.  Or---okay, going WAYYY off on a tangent. :) :cough:

Thanks all!

Post by: RokofAges75 on September 20, 2014, 08:37:53 PM
I feel your pain.  It's nice to know you'll be done less than a year from now though!  Congrats, Jen - on both the master's degree and being one of the top ten!

Congrats to Sakabelle!! Aka Steph or Sakasteph :)

Her poll is now up so go and vote for your favorite saka story.


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: RokofAges75 on October 01, 2014, 05:18:13 PM
Yay Steph!  The poll won't let me vote... I can see the choices, but there is nothing to click on.  I think I'm actually seeing the results, except no one has voted yet.

Is it still locked from when you closed Jen's poll?


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: mare on October 01, 2014, 07:17:35 PM

It's time to announce next month's featured author. We all know and love her for killing off most of the New Kids in one pop but probably the most memorable scene ever is Nick picking bot flies out of Jordan's brain! Priceless!!

Congrats to Steph aka Carter_Orange our #5 favorite AC author of all time.

Go ahead and vote for one of Steph's stories to discuss next month. :)

You're welcome!  Is that a new avy?  I like it, but it makes me shudder at the same time cause it brings back memories of the Parisite and House of Carters.  Yeesh!


Title: Re: The Top Ten!
Post by: Rose on January 02, 2015, 12:59:51 AM
Lol it's one I've had for ages and use at random. It makes me laugh and shudder at HOC. Maybe I'll switch it out for Nearly Mindless Nick soon. I miss him.

It's time to announce our #3 author of all time! She hates the spotlight, not a big fan of getting reviews and is probably not overly happy to be the center of attention. But too bad because she deserves it.

The  #98 author is our very own Julilly! :)

Go vote for which of her stories you'd like to see featured and congrats to her!!

If AC was a coming-of-age film, you guys would all be the happy go lucky kids, experiencing the wonders of life and enjoying endless opportunities for discovery. I would be the ornery old man, waving a cane and screaming "Get off my lawn!"

I'm not very good at taking compliments but, that being said, I appreciate everyone who felt I was worthy of making this list at all. It's...pretty cool...I guess...so, thanks.

So congrats to Julie aka RokofAges75!
