Once upon a time… quite a long time ago really… we asked you all to nominate your favourite fictions for the 2008 Quicksilver Quill awards. We are extremely sorry for the long delay in getting these announced but the time is finally here!

Each person nominated has contributed so much to the site, and these Quicksilver Quill awards recognize the top MuggleNet members in each category. Please give your congratulations, a round of applause, and perhaps a kind review to each of the winners and runner-ups. Winners and runner-ups, please check your inbox for your award! Email me Rosie [at] fanfiction [dot] mugglenet [dot] com' if you did not receive your award or need a correction made.

Please note that some of these links link to stories rated 6th-7th Years and Professors while others lead to our beta forums which may or may not be accessible to one without an account there.
