Had this job for one cycle and can't even get the nominations up on time. I'm literally Hitler.
Categories: Staff, Player, Character, Thread
As always, you can do most improved player if you really want to.
Please only nominate a person/thread once for each category, no need to re-nominate someone. If you could state a reason for your nomination that would be wonderful, and try not to nominate more than 3 things for each category, it gets a bit unwieldy when someone comes in and nominates 5-6 things for each category.
Also, that rule about not nominating someone if they won last month is officially axed, so have at it!
Hasn't been around long, but she's one of those people who show up out of nowhere and steal the fucking show. Growing rapidly in popularity and skill with a thirst to explore her character and learn everything she can about the site, she's eagerly getting stuck in with her threads and plots. Not only that shes just a nice person overall, even refused to enter the Free Stuff Competition because she didn't want to dilute peoples chances of winning. A genuine sweetheart.
Player: Calypso Reason: Throwing themselves headfirst into the sandbox that Variants happen to be, Calypso's got a lot of ideas, a lot of fun planned, and is genuinely enjoyable to thread with as a writing partner. 13/10 highly recommend. The character is phenomenal as well; a great change from the 'let's be friends' mentality that will more than certainly bring about a great deal of much needed conflict into the works.
Character: Obsession Reason: I can't explain how much fun I'm having watching him grow as a Broken Royal, and this is dangerous, as he's threatening Hatred's spot as my favorite. From where Erasmus started as a highly skilled, and depressed, Primera (with the Sexiest Golden Cero, thank you very much) to a man who is all too willingly throwing down the proverbial, and literal, gauntlet as a demi-god settling into his role rather nicely as the creator of a world he deems as fit for his daughter-- or himself, as things keep being hinted at, it's been one hell of a ride and I'm so fucking happy Arty didn't throw him away when things got frustrating and difficult.
Staff: Split vote, sorry guys. Tokiyo, Jian, Robert, and Jasper. Though Bri, and anyone else whose sorry asses had to get roped into practicing/integrated into the reviews process gets one hell of an honorable mention as well.
Reason: You guys gave me exactly what I wanted when I threw that request up; Critical and honest feedback. Rob and Toki in particular did not pull punches, and for that, I'm beyond grateful and look forward to, again to be the broken record, putting what you told me into practice. The amount of time (I'm sorry. I'm still sorry about that!) you all had to spend reading and not reading to make your decisions in particular, and the fact that you took me at my word and went for it not knowing how I might react is beyond respectable and something I had hoped to show in the process for others to see.
You guys did fantastically, and keep doing exactly as you did. Tailor it to the wished upon critique levels of the members in question who come to you, but otherwise don't stop offering feedback. Your critiques, your constructive feedback, and your willingness to help your fellow writers and roleplayers advance is the most important aspect of the Request Approval Panel's duty.
You all need the recognition you deserve for your dedication. A+ work guys, would come to you again for the masochistic beating. <3
Thread: Broken fucking Blade. Reason: Go read the damn thread.
Seriously speaking, you have the two most powerful people in Las Noches coming to a heated confrontation on literally every possible level; emotionally, psychologically, morally, and physically. That alone should make you want to read this rather than whatever waxing poetic about the symbolism behind both characters (Takua actively utilizing his Aspect of Death, whether he realizes it or not, in Sacrificing Las Noches' safe haven in exchange for remaining tightly bound to his personal morality chain and code. Obsession's former Aspect of Death (Loss) still coming back to bite him in the ass to prove that just because one becomes the embodiment of something else, that your past fuck ups and mistakes, your patterns don't stop repeating until you yourself are the change.) and why this thread is so incredibly important for them both.
Go read the thread already, sheesh. Arty, Tak. GET BACK TO WRITING THIS. T__T
