In the bar...
Puppetmon: Okay, so, you go up to the bar, and you tell him you're twenty-one, okay?
Calumon: Hee! I like this game!
Calumon bounds off, and Puppetmon look around and taps his foot. Calumon returns a few minutes later with a six-pack.
Puppetmon and Calumon high-five each other.
Armadillomon knocks back the last of his fifteenth eggnog.
Armadillomon: Three... votes... dear Lord, why do you hate me...?
Jeri pats Armadillomon's shell, and holds her sock puppet in front of his face.
Jeri: *lips not moving* Cheer up! It's not the end of the world! There's plenty more - AWP!
Armadillomon eats Jeri's puppet.
Kazu: You've done mankind a great service.
Armadillomon: Do I get an award?
BlackWarGreymon: I feel so alive...!
Machinedramon: Okay. Okay. There's. No. Need. To. Go. On. About. It.
BlackWarGreymon: I know now that I must have a heart, for it is so filled with joy! I feel as though I could do anything!
BlackWarGreymon bolts down the remainder of his eggnog in one gulp, and hurls the glass away. It strikes Machinedramon's leg and shatters.
Machinedramon groans and falls to bits.
Elsewhere twice removed...
Kari: It was YOUR fault! *slap*
T.K.: YOUR fault!
Kari: YOURS!! *slap*
T.K.: Cut that OUT! You're the one who insisted we take pictures! I just decided to post them on the Internet, that's all!
The speaker system crackles.
Chris (v/o): Posters of AFD and fan-created characters can return to the auditorium now. Anyone else... well, anyone else really just won't care, so you don't have to come.
AFDers and fan-created characters all shuffle off out of the bar, and back into the hall.
Oikawa: ...so then she says, "No, I'M the hooker!"
Oikawa: Yeah, it's a good one, huh? *chuckles*
MetalSeadramon: Heh... heh... HAHAA! I'm da hooker...
MetalSeadramon: ...I don't get it.
Back in the hall... (if you're not an AFDer, you can just CLICK HERE to skip this bit, as you won't be missing anything)
Chris: Welcome back to:
THE DIGI-AWARDS 2001!
Chris: And now, we're gonna hit:
SECTION THREE: ALT.FAN.DIGIMON
Chris: ...hard and fast, to get it over with. I don't want this section to be required reading for any non-AFD readers, so I'm just going to shoot through the votes here, without guest presenters or anything. First up...

Chris lobs Susan her award.
CATEGORY TWO: MOST ANNOYING AFDer
Chris: For safety's sake, after the kerfuffle last year, I'll just deal with the winning votes for those who won't actually get all offended and paranoid and stuff, and they are:
2 - Areku

CATEGORY FOUR: FAVOURITE FANFIC BY AN AFDer
Chris: We didn't actually have a winner this time. Just a lot of fics that received one vote each. Looks like we'll be doing a breakdown ballot for this next year. The fics that got voted for were:
"Digi-Trigger" by Timestones
"Angels Reborn" by Time Lady
"Ascension" by Chris McFeely
"Remembrance" by Time Lady
"Acid Trip" by Fenix
"The End of the End" by Ghostyhead

"The Doctor and the Debutante" by Time Lady
MST of "Anserwing Machines" by Susan
"A Digi-Tale" by Time Lady
"A Teacher's POV" by Time Lady
Chris: So you can see that TL would have won by sheer number of fics voted for, but that ain't how this category works!
