Hi NostalgiaKick,

Thanks for compiling this list.

I had a couple of stories ( Rising Star and Once Upon a Time ) that were submitted to the archive at the tail end of 2015 but that were not actually published there until the start of 2016. I double-checked the 2016 Kerth eligible stories list ( here) and they weren't on there. Could they be added to this year's list?

Thanks,
Lynn

I don't know if it would be eligible, but original character - Morgana in Fallout.

NK, Veni, Vidi, Vici should probably be under supporting character, since it's all on Lex. And Yearning is all about Ching and Zara. Not sure if you want to throw Krypton's Legacy on there too for Jor-El. And there's a revelation in that one as well.

Thanks for getting the list up so fast! You rock!

Hi guys.

Sorry I missed so many! I'm editing the list.
We were a prolific bunch last year. We've got more eligible stories for this year's Kerths now than we did for last year's.

Hi NK,

No apology necessary. You've been doing a trmemnedous amount of work in a short amount of time, and it was easy for my stories to slip through the cracks, so to speak, because they spanned 2015 and 2016.

Thanks again for all your hard work (to quote LabRat).

Joy,
Lynn

Great list of stories - thank you for putting it together. A couple additions, if you don't mind:
- Under original character, if you could add Gotham Nights and Matt Owens as the character

- Under comedy, please add Mind's Eye. I think they added the comedy tag to it in the archive (though the google docs sheet they have with the tags on the stories doesn't reflect anything from 2016, as far as I can tell from a very brief review)
Thanks!

I'm declaring the eligible list CLOSED.

The list will now go to Annette so she can do up the nomination form.

Nominations open at midnight Central time (GMT-5) Saturday, March 11 party

I want to thank DC, folc4evernaday, Lauren, pat, Dawn, LabRat and of course all of our wonderful authors. Without your help, there is no way we could've pulled this list together so quickly.
