    Hello, all! It's time for us to announce the winners of this year's FROGS awards! If you didn't catch our livestream from earlier this evening, you can find it +here. First off: thank you to everyone who nominated, reviewed, and voted in this year's FROGS awards, and congratulations to everyone who was nominated, whether or not you won. HPFT is home to some incredibly talented people, and we can't express how glad we are to be part of this community. We hope you enjoyed this as much as we did. All of that said: we'd like to unveil our special, limited edition set of chocolate frog cards. We're including small versions of them in this post, but if you click on them, you'll find the full version hidden behind them. I'll also be uploading the entire collection +here on my deviantart. Please use only the mini-version in your story notes, since the full version is so big; however, you're welcome to include the full size card as a chapter image, on your profile/in your writer's journal here, and anywhere else you hang out online.

    These awards are incredible, Branden! Thank you so, so, much to everyone for making the FROGS so awesome, especially to @clevernotbrilliant, @LadyL8, @manno-malfoy, @PaulaTheProkaryote, @Rumpelstiltskin, and @ShazaLupin for the nominations and seconding/thirding, and to everyone who voted. I honestly wasn’t expecting to be nominated, let alone win, so this means a lot to me. Congratulations to everyone else who placed and/or were nominated! And a shout-out to the staff for putting so much time and organisation into making the FROGS such a fun event. Thank you for making HPFT such a wonderful community that we can all call home.

    Just echoing everyone else's comments about the amazing graphics! I can't stop watching those pretty cards spin! Congrats to everyone! Also, I want to officially thank @poppunkpadfoot @TreacleTart @RoxiMalfoy @LadyL8 for the noms and seconds for my story. I really didn't think I'd get any noms at ALL and I was just so, so thrilled to see them!

    I'm so glad you like them, guys! I fixed one award and added links in for all the stories. I'm also apparently not quite done making frogs cards so I made one for all the finalists that I'm editing into the above post. <3

    Wow! Branwen, those awards are amazing. (I'm not going to admit how long I just spent staring at all of them, but it was a while ) Thank you so much to everyone who made the awards a success - all the staff who organized it, everyone who nominated and voted, and everyone who wrote awesome stories and/or reviews (so like, all of you). Voting was extremely difficult just because everyone is so talented! ♥ Extra special thanks to those of you who nominated and voted for me/my stories - I was never expecting to see my name in there at all, after being away for almost 3/4 of the year, so it honestly meant so much to me. Thank you ♥ I'm so happy to be part of such an incredible community. You are all so wonderful and talented, and congratulations to all the nominees and winners!

    Title: You Are HereAuthor: @scooterbug8515 | M C CrockerLink to Story: +clickWarnings: n/aWhy do you think this Story deserves to be Nominated?: Microfiction at its finest. Carrie built an all-too-familiar picture of life (namely, the choices one makes that leads them to be in their current position in life) with a determined tone in moving forward after some self-reflection. It's definitely a fantastic read!

    Oh my gosh, those are amazing! I have no idea how you managed to make those, and ALL of them! Thank you so much!! (Really hopes she will be able to figure out how to save them and put them up in places.) Congrats to everyone who won, and everyone who made these awards possible! I'm still so shocked that I made it into this amazing group. I really thought I was totally out of the running given all I've been posting forever is Merlin stuff, and I wasn't sure if it was any good. Seriously, this made my weekend. THANK YOU!!

    I read your "love note" in the Slytherin CR and it made me smile and get all teary eyed at the same time. That was lovely. And thank you so so much for your kind words to me. We've indeed shared some beautiful and fun times together and I will never forget them. You are awesome and I look forward to staying in touch and having a chat whenever we can. Lots and lots of love!

    Thank you @nott theodore for the entry, this is exactly what I was looking for! Now I’m wondering if I should wait for the other participants @manno-malfoy, @Rumpelstiltskin , @abhorsen., @victoria_anne and maybes @Felpata_Lupin I’m of course happy to wait more, but the winner is the one who met the deadline ;-)

    Title: Haunting Shadows Author: @dreamgazer220 Link to Story: here+ (M) Warnings: eating disorders, sexual content, substance abuse, violence Why do you think this Story deserves to be Nominated?: Jill's OCs are so well written; they're flawed, and they struggle, and there are misunderstandings and disagreements between them that make this story so interesting to read. Her characterizations are wonderful (especially of Fred, who is so difficult to get right), and the suspense in this story will keep you on your toes every single chapter. She fits a whole new plot into canon, and really, this story is just remarkable.

    Title: five lives Author: @just.a.willow.tree Link to Story: +Click [M] Warnings: Hate speech, violence, sexual assault Why do you think this story deserves to be nominated?: Like all of Eva’s writing, this story is beautifully written. Like all of Eva’s writing, this story is also so complicated and well-thought; she presents a true portrayal of heroism and its consequences. The main reason I’m nominating this story is, however, Astoria; Eva has created a wonderfully complex, relatable, witty, intelligent, and selfless character in Astoria—while still keeping her very human. This story is so gripping and so powerful—definitely one of my favorites on the archives!
