BEST FAN FICTION CLASSIC 
Classic examples of our very best stories and authors. Story must have featured blue ribbon status and be completed. Stories are selected by senior administrators only. Selection is based on professional talented writing, originality, entertainment value, reader responses, and emotional impact for the readers. If a story has sequels only the first story will be designated a classic for all the stories. An author will only be granted this status for one story each to insure readers discover them. Note that if a writer has too many WIP and delays in updates, that hurts them becoming a classic author with Whispers.

FEATURED STORY 
Blue Ribbon Award required. All fan fictions will be in this category if featured until we have more different kinds of stories. Only an Administrator can award featured status to a story. Featured status is based on very good writing, imagination, grammar and spelling, readers' response, and sometimes we will reward an author that is making very significant improvement and we want to motivate them to keep going because we see real promise in their work. Only completed stories will be awarded featured status.
