WelcomeWelcome to Thieves and Liars, the newest Hanfic awards site. The first two rounds in Fall 2009 and Spring 2010 were very successful, so after taking last fall off, I'm running the awards again. The goal here is pretty obvious and straightforward -- to give awards to the best and most loved Hanfic stories on the web. Obviously this isn't a terribly original concept, but it's always fun. As with any award site, this one won't work without fan input, so please nominate and vote for your favorites. Who knows, you might just win something!
ScheduleAll dates are subject to change. Please check back for any changes to the schedule.

UpdatesCheck here for any and all updates to the site.
- April 17, 2011 Winners are FINALLY posted. Congratulations to everyone who made it through both rounds of voting.
- April 12, 2011 As I posted on twitter, there are currently several ties. I'm posting a short tiebreaker round to clear these up, so get your vote in for that soon. Good luck to everyone still in the running!
- March 29, 2011 I kind of screwed up on realizing what day it was when I posted the nominees, so I've added yet another day to the schedule. Voting is now open and will run until April 11.
- March 27, 2011 I'm a day late posting the nominees, and I've adjusted the schedule accordingly. It's just moved back a day and voting will begin tomorrow.
- March 13, 2011 Nominations are now open. Please let me know if the form doesn't work or if you have any questions.
- February 14, 2011 Have launched this year's version of the site. It's early so you have time to familiarize yourself with the changes. What are the changes? First, I've added a category for Best Group Story -- should be pretty self-explanatory. Secondly, I've changed the forms. They now have captchas, required fields and IP tracking that allows me to limit how many times you can fill it out. This will make it easier for me to eliminate spam and cheating, making the awards better for all of us. The rules have seen a few subtle changes as well, so be sure to read those through. So come back in two weeks and send in your nominations!
