Thanks to everyone who suggested work for the spotlight! Let the authors know what you liked, and maybe leave a critique or two in the original threads (if it's in a threadbox, VM or PM the author). Some of these pieces could use a little extra love and attention.

Congrats everyone!

Pro-tip: because my first instinct is to procrastinate anything I see as an obligation or responsibility, asking me for a critique is a good way to make sure I never give you a critique.

Thanks for the nomination and congrats everyone!
