MOST PSYCH-LIKE TITLE

BEST STANDALONE

This category is for all those never ending oneshot stories. Stories like the '100 Themes' challenge answers, and the 'Moments' stories. This is the only category other than the Most Wanted WIP that the stories are NOT completed.

Remember, you are nominating a ONESHOT from these unending stories, NOT the story as a whole.

MOST WANTED WIP

What incomplete story do you want to see finished? This is a story that has been taking a VERY long time to be written. The wait is LONG between updates or the updates have suddenly stopped, leaving the story in hiatus. Maybe an award will get the author's creative juices going?
