Feb. 1st, 2006 @ 02:52 pm Big Damn Awards: Winners!
About this Entry
Current Mood: hungryhungry
Current Music: Trinket - Boom
The moment you've been waiting for! Tons of awesome new RP has happened and fun new characters have joined the game since the creation of the first ever BDAs, but the winners are timeless.

It's been fun, and there's been lots of voting. Some nominees won my a hair's breadth. Others won by a landslide.

I was going to make pretty icons or banners for the winners in some categories, but I didn't have time ... so ... now you're just left with the good thought and a longing for graphics. It's the thought that counts!

Anyway, without further ado,

Drum roll, please!
