NCIS: LA - in the NCIS Awards or not?  
Because there are people on both sides of the fence for this. Please spread to any and all who would be interested in participating, one way or another, in the NCIS Awards.

Poll #1537948 NCIS Awards

Should the NCIS Awards 2010 include NCIS: LA fanfics or not?

Yes, NCIS: LA fics should be included
No, NCIS: LA fics should not be included

Would you nominate, read and vote for NCIS:LA fanfics?

Yes, I'd nominate, read and vote
No, I wouldn't nominate, read and vote

Feel free to comment below if you have something to add. And if anyone can post a link to this to any of the NCIS:LA comms, I'd appreciate it. I'm not a member of any of them.

Hi, on the question of whether or not there are many NCIS: LA stories, I've bookmarked 82 here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/ncisla_masterlist/bookmarks. I haven't kept up with fanfiction.net nearly as fast as stories are being posted. A lot of the Kensi/Callen and Kensi/Nate is on ff.net. There's more than 150 stories there and, though I'm sure there's overlap with people posting to more than one site (ff.net/LJ/DW/AO3/etc), so we can't just add the numbers, I think we have a reasonable showing for a first year out!

Well, it's not just a matter of there being stories (I know there are), but that people need to be reading them and willing to nominate and vote. We had trouble getting enough votes for the Awards last year and those were just NCIS stories, which has a pretty big fandom. Without voters, there's not much point in doing fanfic awards.

That said, it looks like there'll be enough people voting, so it will be a small part of the NCIS Awards this year.

OIC! I'm not that familiar with fanfiction awards processes. But that's great news for both fandoms. I linked the poll on the DW community I mod. I hope that brings some more readers and voters to the table.

That's great :) Feel free to make as much advertisement as you want for the NCIS Awards on Dreamwidth.

I think it might make sense to inclued NCIS:LA, but as a different category. That's probably a lot of extra work for whoever's in charge, especially since there are probably a lot of crossover fics between the shows too, but that's just my thought.

HOLY CRAP, I am so late to the party, dude, my bad. But uhm, if the awards haven't happened yet, I have to say that I strongly agree with the consensus that NCIS: LA should be included and have its own category. I know we're still a small fandom and that we have nowhere NEAR half of the amount of fic that NCIS has, but I generally think we're a pretty awesome show and that we're doing well so far for our first season so we deserve a shot too. :D

(When are the awards, btw? I would love to go nominate/read/vote. :D)
