with those who favor
with torn and bleeding hearts we smile
With your permission
You carry my fears as the heavens set fire
You're stuck with me

Character nominated: Regarte Barrault
Reason: I absolutely love love love Phedre's imagery choices when it comes to describing the broken and patched together mind that is Reggie's and how she interacts with and views the world around her. It's beautiful stuff.
i have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night

Thread Title: Matters of Utmost Discretion
Thread Link: Link
Reason: I love how very glacian Maarika and Finn are in this thread; Wren picked up a Want Ad with a long, seriously important history and has done an amazing job of writing him. I adore this thread, and eagerly look for each new post.

Thread Title: I won’t Lie I’ve never been Ashamed
Thread Link: Link
Reason: This thread both amuses and intrigues. Silver walks the line between ridiculously stubborn and proud and fully aware that a Black Jewel could dissolve her into mist.

Thread Title: The worse you do the better it gets
Thread Link: Link
Reason: I adore Alesky and read every thread, but this one where she ties Voda in knotts is particularly amusing. Alternately heartwarming and terrifying, it exemplifies Alesky at her baffling, intriguing best.

Thread title: With those who favor
Thread link:
Reason: The meeting of Lionel and the Black Widow Healer he's clearly meant to serve is both sweet and heart rending. Both Lionel and Aleksy have experienced such deep trauma, and Reid and Em offer us what feels like a stolen glimpse into something so sacred and private as these two characters come together. I love Aleksy, and this is by far one of my favorites with her. I'm so excited to see how things play out with them.

Character nominated: Sebastian Bane
Reason: I don't quite know how it happened, but Sebastian Bane is one of Reid's funniest characters, if not the funniest. The soft spoken Jack who got pulled from his bed in the middle of the night to be told he was now the Master of the Jacks Guild and the new Master of the Guard, has been having an intense introduction to his new life. This month, we have seen him bond to his Queen (a half Eyrien Ebon Gray Queen, at that), navigate Riley's fury when he would much rather just slip away, learn that one of the Triangle he now is a part of is Myos, and had Sway magically appear in his office after dropping in from his ceiling. The fact that the man has not yet had a heart attack is amazing, and Reid's writing of him is consistently witty and fun. You almost feel bad for how beleaguered he is. Almost.

Character nominated: Lenore Noir
Reason: I think this month we’ve gotten to see a brand new side of Lenore, and it’s one that should be acknowledged. In many of her threads prior to September Lenore has been all in control, but in her threads with Basile and Jean-Isidore we can see her brutally shaken by Jean-Baptiste’s attack and straining to cope. I think her decision to try to help Jean-Baptiste rather than having him (rightfully) castrated, Broken, or executed is remarkable and that’s why Lenore should be Character of the Month.

Character nominated: Jeremiah Mercer
Reason: Similar to Lenore, Jeremiah is a character who has been tossed out of his element in the month of September. After enduring a senseless attack of his own, Jeremiah’s methods of controlling himself—as he is a very well-controlled Warlord Prince—are fracturing and flailing. I think it’ll be interesting to see what happens with him in the coming month, but I am nominating him this month as well because I think this is a stellar example of the writing of one of our newest creators. :3

Character nominated: Claudia Genadie
Reason: This past month we have seen just how far Claudia will go for her Queen and just how far that can cause her to fall as well. After mentally attacking one of Riley's males, she goes to tell her of the crime that she has committed. It's there that we see a different side of Claudia, one many haven't seen, as she meets whatever decision Riley makes about what is to happened to her. Reid writes Claudia so well. He lets you see into her head to understand why she did what she did but also lets you see how much what she's done damages her in turn, as well as her willingness to face the music because she can't run from her Queen.
