Honorable Mentions

When multiple fics by the same author are nominated in a single category, we choose which fic will be included for voting based off the amount of nominations they receive in said category. If two or more fics by the same author receive the same amount of nominations in a single category, we privately message the author and ask which fic they would prefer be included for voting. The same applies for the fan art categories.
These fics and art received less nominations, or were not chosen by their author/artist, and were therefore excluded from their respective categories.
