Is there a reason genfic isn't being recognized at all? Gen drama, gen comedy, gen AU?

It is! The second to last category under Fanfiction is our Best General Cast Fic award. All Gen fics will be categorized there.

Ah, okay. I assumed that meant best ensemble fic, which I would qualify as different from gen, which could focus on just a character or two.

Ah, no, but we'll clarify that in our definitions section. Thank you!
