The Hellmouth Awards is a site for BtVS/Ats fanfiction that focuses on rare pairings. There are many pairs in the Buffyverse that get a lot of love, so HMA is dedicated to those random, off-the-wall, and even WTF? pairs that can only happen on (or near!) the Hellmouth. :)

Please check out the links on the right for more information, or simply feel free to scroll through the community!

Dates:
Nominations: January 15 - February 15
Judging/Voting: February 15 - March 30
Winners Announced: April 15



Rules:

    What types of fics are eligible?
  • This site focuses on RARE PAIRINGS ONLY. Stories with primary pairings of the following may not be nominated: Buffy/Spike, Buffy/Angel, Willow/Tara, Willow/Kennedy, Willow/Oz, Xander/Spike, Xander/Angel, Xander/Anya, Xander/Cordelia, Spike/Willow, Spike/Angel, Angel/Cordy, Fred/Wes, Fred/Gunn, Giles/Buffy, Faith/Buffy, Angel/Darla, Spike/Drusilla, Wesley/Lilah

  • Threesomes/Moresomes are ONLY allowed in the Threesome/Moresome category. Stories with primary groupings of the following are not allowed: Spike/Buffy/Angel, Spike/Xander/Angel, Spike/Drusilla/Angel.

  • All fanfiction must be based on the BtVS/Ats fandom. No RPF or All-Human AU is allowed.

  • A WIP (Work-in-Progress) is eligible, but it must have at least three parts, and must have been updated within two months of the beginning of the judging period.

  • Crossovers are not allowed.

  • Fiction based on the Buffy Season 8 or Angel:AtF comics is allowed, but keep in mind that the judges may not be reading the comics. It would be best that all comics!fics should be understandable to a reader with no comics knowledge.



    Who can nominate/be nominated?
  • Anyone can make nominations.

  • Judges and Mods may be nominated, but they cannot judge a category they've been nominated in.

  • Self-nominations are accepted; however, it is preferred that for every time you nominate yourself, you nominate someone else as well. This is not a hard-and-fast rule, and I won't be checking, but the best part of an awards site is spreading the love around.



    How many times can I be nominated?
  • Authors may be nominated in no more than 9 fiction categories. Authors may be nominated for no more than 2 best author categories.

  • Authors can only be nominated once per category.

  • A single work of fiction can be nominated in no more than three categories.



    Nominations will be discarded if:
  • A valid email address or LJ/DW username is not provided.

  • It is riddled with spelling, punctuation & grammar errors.

  • It is friends-locked or password-protected.

  • It is not nominated in the correct category.

  • The author declines the nomination.



    What else do I need to know?
  • Categories must have a minimum of three entries to go to judging/voting. Categories will contain no more than fifteen nominees.

  • Nominations will be taken in the order of author acceptance. First come, first served.

  • Categories that become full before the nominations process is over may cascade* at the mods's discretion. Categories that are not full at the end of nominations may be collapsed* at the mod's discretion.



About Cascading Categories:
Cascading categories are ones that might be split into further sub-categories, depending on the number and type of nominees. For example: the Best Het category might split into Best Willow/Angel and Best Other Het, again, depending on the number and type of nominees.

About Collapsing Categories:
Collapsing categories is when two similar categories are combined for the sake of having more nominees in one category. For example: the Best Angst and Best Dark categories could be combined into one Best Angst/Dark category, again, depending on the number and type of nominees.
