Hiywan's Story has just won all sorts of pretty things at the Absence of Light Awards:

Angst: Best Gen
angst - Gen 

Angst: Most Original
angst-original

Judge's Choice
jusdge-choice

And this is the citation for the Judge's Choice Award:

There are a lot of things that from appearances only go against this fic - it's set thousands of years before Buffy is born, it's comprised basically entirely of OCs (since we know squat about the First Slayer from the show, I'd say she counts too), and it's gen. But the massive world-building and research put into this, the haunting moral choices, and Hiywan's struggle to find her place in a society with incredibly firm gender roles make this so, so compelling. stormwreath takes the barest of stories from the show and breathes a whole new colorful life into it, creating a cast of characters who we can't help but root for.

Congratulations to the other winners, a category which includes at least 10 people on my flist. And thanks to snowpuppies and her fellow mods and judges for being generally awesome. :-) I'm not only saying that because I won, either. ;-)

Congrats! Clearly, this means you have to write more of it (and yes, I say that before I've had time to read the latest installment...) :-)

Congratulations... with all those awards you'd better keep a sharp eye out for a drunken Kanye West.

So other than 'Hiywan's Story', which is the greatest First Slayer fic of all time?
