The Winners of the 2007 Quicksilver Quill Awards

We apologise for our late revealing, but the decisions this year have been unbelievably difficult.

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 'bethany [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.

Congratulations to all the winners! I can't wait to read all the winning fics that I haven't yet read.

And oh my gosh- the list of everyone who helped out is soooo long!! That, and the quality of the winning fics (and reviews, and art, etc...) just goes to show what talent and dedication we have amongst the wonderful MNFFers. It's really something to be proud of, and it's so great that we have the QSQs to highlight it!!

So, well done everyone!

*Hands out lollipops before leaving - it's time for a party!!*

I am so happy, I'm using a zillion punctuation marks. Out of all of the humour stories, MINE was picked?

The judges are crazy, but I'm not complaining.

Congrats to all the winners and all of my fellow runner-ups! *Huggles everyone*
