And I claim full credit.dudski
has a very nice and detailed post
about every step of the whole thing. I never thought I'd ever be mentionned in anything ressembling a wank report, but this makes me look like a hero coming in after the last minute to save the day so I'm okay with it.
It's true that Gwen was announced as being back in in answer to my comment
, but I think if had been anyone else making that comment, the result would have been the same.
I hesitated to post it, because I didn't want to impose. Then they kept replying to other inquiries. So I posted. Between the moment I started my comment and the moment I posted, an offer to include characters missing from nominations
was made. I came back to edit it in into my comment and change my icon to my Gwen Stacy icon (in case anyone was curious what the edit was).
Then I wandered away, because I didn't expect a reply at all, much less a positive one
In all honesty, I was resigned to Gwen not making it in this year. I just wanted to show people, when they'd be looking back on this years from now (because you know they will), that Gwen Stacy fans weren't making unreasonable demands.
As a result of me walking away from the computer, yuletide-coal reacted to Gwen getting in
faster than I did
. (Also, I love that this thread
is just above the previous.)
That's pretty much how the end of it unfolded from my point of view. I'm just really glad Gwen got in, you guys! And I can now add
defender of justice on my LJ CV, so there is that.
Also, I'm naming my new PC Gwen, because since I'm transferring all the memory, it will essentially be the same PC with a different casing and if this yuletide has told me anything it's that "same memory =/= same person", apparently.
In conclusion: GWEN ♥!(Sorry if this post shows up twice, LJ's being weird.)
