Voting for this round of makelaurahappy was supposed to close tonight (30th April).

However, I have three things:
1) Some ties that need breaking
2) A couple of requests for a bit more time
3) Some participants (over half of you, in fact) who haven't voted yet (*hint hint*; see below)

VERY IMPORTANT: NEW COMM RULE (effective immediately)
If you submit a story but do not vote, you will not be eligible to win any categories.

Seriously, you can PM me if you need more time. Within reason, I'll do my best to help. I don't bite! :)

SO! In the hope of getting a few more votes, I'm extending the voting until the end of the weekend. That means until 23:59 on Sunday, 2 May, Honolulu time.

Nothing to do this Sunday?

How about having a read of the contest stories for MLH 8 and then VOTING for your favorites? :)

We've got 18 great stories designed to Make Laura Happy with a Holiday, including some A/R, some femslash, and some general. There's a range of ratings, too! ;)

So come have a read, leave the authors some love, and most of all, VOTE and have your say!!

Voting closes April 30 2 May. You never know - your vote might just be the tiebreaker.

You've got a few hours left until it's midnight in Hawaii and the contest closes, so, feel free to send those last minute entries my way! You can check on the time here.

BTW, if you can associate this MLH post with 80s music, you win, um… The Cookie of Knowing Way Too Much More About 80s Music Than Zaleti Does. It has fluoro icing. The cookie, that is.

OK, so that picture was just to get your attention. Worked, though, didn't it? :)

This is just a reminder that you have THREE DAYS LEFT to enter if you want to play. Remember, there's always time for a quickie... ;)

Thanks to all the super people who have sent me entries already! This is going to be a great contest!

If there's a grand tradition here at makelaurahappy, it's that there's always an extension. :)

And so, by (semi-)popular demand, I bring you the MLH 8 One-Week Extension.

Fics are now due on Sunday, April 18. So you can add that extra couple of thousand words, if you like. ;)

Comments are screened, if you have any questions.

A big thank you to the people who've sent me their fics already! :D

There are now two weeks left until the deadline, which is April 11.

If you think you might need an extension, please let me know! Aaaand this is the post in which to do it. Comments are screened to preserve the mystery of the competition... ;)

Well, it's March 11th, so I bring you your friendly MLH halfway point reminder!

You've got another month before the stories are due (on April 11th). That's loads of time to Make Laura Happy with a HOLIDAY! The challenge details can be found HERE.

So, if you were feeling indecisive, you can still join in! Remember, it only needs to be 500 words, not War & Peace. :)

Want to play but lack inspiration? You could...

...that you'll find under this here cut.Collapse )

Have you started writing your entry for Challenge #8, Make Laura Happy with a Holiday yet? No? Well, go read The Contest Rules right now, and think of an idea.

We'll wait.

Based on a comment thread that got a little out of hand, icedteainthebag and flamingo55 decided to make good on their threat promise to write a fic based on Madonna's "Holiday". As it's not meant for the actual fic contest, we post it now for your condemnation derision reading pleasure.

Strike a poseCollapse )
