September 2016 Awards!!

Post by Roan » September 23rd, 2016, 1:49 pm

Community Awards Best Newcomer: Locke

Since arriving at the Tower, Locke has made great strides in becoming a part of the community. His depth and focus of writing has improved in the time he has been here, and he has two rich characters to show for his efforts in Alric and Terric.

Best Character Development: Emmond Salere

Emmond has had quite the ride from being in charge of the most secret and most feared of Ajahs to being little more than a janitor. What else does he have in store?

Best Plot Development: The Black Ajah Storyline with Elia, Emmond, Mirin, Murdock, and Seonin

It is not often the Black Ajah has a coup. . .or is it?

Most Captivating Thread: I Commend your Pain and Everyone Shall Share the Gains with Murdock and Fiona

Murdock has often said he is married, though he found a doppelganger of his wife in Fiona. In a twist, he used his unique talent to have her completely dependent on him, and I know I couldn't wait to see what happened next. Apparently, neither could many of our members.

Most Tear Jerking Thread: Silken Solace with Kaia and Jaryd

We sometimes lose PC's in a Blaze of Glory, but the emotional roller coaster this particular thread put us on tugged at a number of hearts. Our hearts broke with Jaryd's as Kaia's life slipped away.

Best Non-channeling combat: On Sacred Ground with Muireen

Muireen learned War Fans from one of our more Unique Gaidin, and she put her newfound skill to task when faced with the To'Raken during the Seanchan attacks. She showed bravery in the face of overwhelming odds, and helped her fellow trainees best a beast bigger than them.

Most Creative Use of the One Power: Taesh Durlain

Taesh's explorations with Plantweaving and his discovery of his Talent for Scrying have been unusual, fascinating, and fun to read.

Best New Biography: Casey Frey

Casey Frey is just a small town girl, living in a lonely world...or so she'd like us to think.

Best Dynamic duo/Couple: Ravak Darrow and Dax Torellion

From frenemy to friend? The two have overcome their past differences and bonded over a bar fight. What's not to love?

Best Star Crossed Lovers: Ravak Darrow and Mirin Ronaile

Who would have thought the Master of Training and the Mistress of Novices would come together in such a (im?)perfect union to produce a wee little one?

Best Villian: Murdock Mather

Rending. Fiona. Emmond and Elia. Do we need to say more?

Tower's Choice: Becks

We have a lot of very talented writers at the Tower, and of them all, Becks is one of the best. She always weaves such rich responses to her threads, and continually looks for opportunity to grow her characters.

Friendship Ribbon: Taesh Durlain and Jhanic

Sea and sand may seem an unlikely combination, and yet everybody loves the beach...

Friendship Ribbon: Murdock Mather and Elia Darrow

Should they kiss and make up?

I Ship It! Most Likely to Happen: Paks and Everyone

Seriously. . .the woman is working her way through the female ranks, and may well start working her way through the male ranks if we're not careful.

I Ship It! Ribbon (Least Likely / Fan Service / Amusement Value): Ravak Darrow and Happiness

Poor Rav. At least he's got a kid?

Admin Awards Golden Broom Award: Avyra, Becks, Bella, Jenn, Marla

Each of these people have had to face big challenges in their "real" lives in the last few months. They have each in their own way worked hard, made tough decisions, and kept moving forward despite everything. If anyone ever deserved an "adulting award," these people top the list!

Officer's Sanity Ribbon: Jenn

Through a series of unfortunate RL events of her own, Jenn has kept multiple officers sane and balanced over the last few months.

Officer's Insanity Ribbon: Marla

Marla has worked double time to navigate the riptides of community concerns in order to keep the site functioning smoothly while also juggling chaos at work, at home, and with her health

Builders Ribbon: Jenn

For contributing her time and patience to the massive Library overhaul that happened last month.

The Builder's Hammer: Craig

Craig went above and beyond in giving the Library a much needed visual and technical overhaul, and he began the transfer of GT2 information into our Wiki.

NPC Ribbon: Dog Gaidin

Arf! Arf!

The Sheathed Sword: Jaryd Kosari

Jaryd has gone through more than one serious upheaval in his life. From being collared, to losing Kaia, and finally having Zeen bond him to keep him from going suicidal, the man has been through the ringer, and his journey is not yet done. The depth and thought into his story line is well thought out, and well executed.

The Mark of Friendship: Kenneth with Taesh

Taesh is easily the most easy-going friendly guy in the entire Tower. He sees the best in everyone and does his best to reduce conflict at every opportunity.

The Mark of Training: Locke with both Alric and Terric

Locke has helped many learning ranks learn basic skills with Terric and Alric. He's helped the helpless become less helpless and helped mold some of our learning ranks into better, more robust warriors.

The Purple Heart: Emmond

For being blinded, gentled, force-bonded, demoted and. . .seduced? As one person put it, "Dear God!"

Blaze of Glory: Kaia Sedai

With Silken Solace, was there any doubt? We saw her join the Tower, rise to Keeper of Chronicles, and then die in the arms of her lover after taking a mortal blow from an assassin. Wipes tear

The Golden Blade, Fang, and Flame: Matty

Everything Matty writes is fun to read. His plots range from the macabre to the hilarious, and yet we all enjoy reading the dark moments just as much as the light. His characters are distinct, unique, and yet still assuredly themselves despite all the strange things he throws them at.

Ajah Ribbons:

Green Ajah Ribbon: Avyra
Black Ajah Ribbon: Ellia Darrow
Grey Ajah Ribbon: Taesh Durlaen
Brown Ajah Ribbon: Katrie Torellion
Warder Yards Ribbon: Ravak Darrow

Community Ribbon: Locke

For his eagerness to write with new people.

Congratulations to one and all!
