That is completely hilarious.

(Of course, they seem to have added an "r" to seven, too.)

On the other hand, yay for winning.

I think, to be fair, that they're probably aware that they're stretching the definition, and just went with drabble because they'd divided out the short fics in such a way that 'ficlet' was already being used for 500 to 1000 word fics. I'm just kind of giggly about it, vs. actively head-desking.

Snerk.

Well, at least the win went to a good fic, even if the category is a bit dubious.

Hee - thanks. I'm not complaining - by my own logic, my fic wouldn't even have been eligible.

ahh. yes. I'm going to blame the cold meds that that took me so long to spot ...

I had to go back and word-count my own fic, because I thought maybe my memory was playing tricks on me!

A win is a win!

I had so much more energy to wank on and on about words and Englishy stuffs back then!

Snerk. I do not mock the typo, for there but for the grace of Gid go I.

Trying to decide whether to weep or laugh in a hollow, hysterical way here...

But congratulations! :-)

Don't do both - then you end up choking on your own tears and coughing and your face turns all red and blotchy like you accidentally breathed in too many wasabi fumes!

...not that I have ever done that.

That sound spainful and to be avoided.

Like non-100 word 'drabbles' :;grr::

Congratulations, and it's all goldy and silvery, too...

I'm also amused at the irony that I really haven't posted anything non-RPG-related in over a year, which tends to make me feel doubly-cheaty, given the relative decrepitude of the story in fan-years.
