    Best songfic for Quicksilver Quill Awards

    You could choose the best songfic that someone made and they would win the award.

    But songfic isn't exactly a recognised category at MNFF, is it? I mean half the one-shots are in a way inspired by songs and contain lyrics. Only a few dozen are ones that explicitly state in the summary that it is a songfic. I like it better that they are put into Angst or Romance rather than in a songfic section, I remember of them that way too - as a dark or otherwise fic. This is a personal opinion though.

    But if the mods think it's all right to give an award for it, it's not a bad idea.

    Well then we would have to make a more clear definition of what a songfic is. Some stories have nothing to do with any song, but the title is a lyric only because it happened to fit the story line. Do you think those would count?

    I think a songfic is defined if it has the lyrics *somehwere* in the story. Lyrics as titles would not count, the song must refklect the feeling and mood of the fic as well as have the lyrics incorporated.

    Hmmm Akay I see what you mean...I know songfic isn't a category, but songs are insriration behind alot of fics, and if one-shots and chaptered are considered for dfferent awards, I think songifcs should have their own QSQ category. I agree totally with keeping them in Romance or Angst or whatever on the main site.

    But stories are nominated in QSQ categories pertaining to the category they are listed under in the archives, right? I think this suggestion could be successfully implemented perhaps next year or so if the mods were to create a separate category as such. At the moment, there might be a slight conflict of interest, I think. In a way, one story would as such be appropriate to two categories, and if I wanted to nominate it for angst and you for the songfic, then that would be sort of one reason (besides the obvious) we could say why stories are discouraged to be put under more than one category.
