Okay, so way back on August 7th, I made a shocking announcement about this little thing that I like to call, The Top 100. And it was all about the best stories out there. Mind you, this wasn't in my opinion. If it was my opinion they'd all be slash or dark. So with that said I'd like to remind everyone of what the rules were.
"This is all about the top 100 fanfiction stories. But not my top 100, this
is your top 100. And when I say your, I mean all of you. I want to know
what you guys think of to be the best of the best. This is not about reviews
or read count this is entirely about what stories you prefer. It doesn't
matter if they're finished, on permanent hiatus, still in the works, a one-shot
or what. I don't care if they're famous stories or stories that only have a
handful of reviews. I don't care if they are AH, AU, Canon, Non-canon,
Slash, or what. I want to know which ones you like."
So, to put it simply, there was no rules at all. It just had to be a Twilight Fanfiction, that's all.
To give everyone a little insight into the nominations which ended November 15th. At first I was going to put them all together, contact every author, make a huge poll and let people vote. Well there was one problem with that. Where do I find a poll for 1800+ titles? I've never seen a poll that large. So I was left with a couple options, minimize to say the top 300 for people to vote on and go from there, still don't know a poll that large though. So I scratched that option. I went to my next option, the nominations would also be the voting. This was the option I decided upon. If I do this again next year (well this year now), I'll do it differently.
Then I had the next problem, contacting authors, I did this the right way and got permission from EVERY author. Which is why I'm telling you this. There were about thirty stories that should have been on this list but aren't. So if you're wondering why your favorite story that has like 10000 reviews didn't show up, it's because I never got permission to post it in the list, or I was even told that I wasn't allowed to. That being said, all the stories that are on this list should be honored. I will tell you that I got 1827 different stories nominated, and was given 269 nomination sheets at as many as 25 per sheet. Every story that made The Top 100 had at least 8 nominations.
Okay and now for the big reveal of Numero Uno. But First I want to give a shout out to sjAimee and special thanks to her for making this wonderful banner so that it wasn't my craptastic banner skills making it.
