Thread title: Tis the season
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/tis-the-season/
Reason: This thread shows Reid, Dash, and Petrichor at the absolute top of their games as writers. The interactions are charged and intense and sing with the promise of further brutality, but walk a fine line of not feeling gratuitous. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the next post.

Thread Title: I Scaled a Mountain for you my Dear
Thread Link: http://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/i-scaled-a-mountain-for-you-my-dear/
Reason: I try to read anything with Lysander in it, as he unfailingly pulls me in and entertains. Wren writes him with amazing flair, and with a beautifully humourous self awareness that makes him a joy to read. Add Hayden’s charm and angst, and every scene between them, no matter how mundane on the surface, becomes both deep and magical.

Thread title: tear me down
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/tear-me-down
Reason: Dani wrote an awesome solo explaining why Shyloh was down and out during LT play. It was great to see her make her Gray Jeweled Widow vulnerable and actually brought down by a lighter Jewel and to be foiled by her own arrogance. It's rare to see a Dark Jewel in Blood Rites get taken down a peg and Dani did it in a masterful way that showed Shyloh's strengths and her vulnerabilities. The fact she made her beg for her life at one point is a very real and human thing and yet something many writers wouldn't do for fear of making their character seem weak. Excellent, excellent writing!

Thread title: Ink stained heart
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/ink-stained-heart/
Reason: Um. Because Gabri and Sora. BUT ALSO. Because holy hell look at all that character. I mean, we get to see multiple sides of both characters. For Sora, from the fear and vulnerability of being separated from a male who needs her all the way to that confidence and dominance of taking charge and telling Gabri to Shield the door you get to see so much of her character in the span of a few posts!!! LOVE!! On and Gabriiiiiii <3 I love being able to see the depth there - watching her take risks and just go for it both when it comes to making the decision that she wants to talk to Marius (who I am not liking right now, I want to hit him with my shoe) and then making the first move to give me the sweet Queen lovin' of my fangirling daydreams.

BEST THREAD EVER.

Character nominated: Lionel Kelly
Reason: ;____; Lionel. I just... I want to hug him and keep him safe and protected forever. FIVE-EVER. I've finally sat down and gotten to really read him and he breaks my heart. This month he's been pushed WAY OUTSIDE of his happy place, and we've also gotten to see several different ways he interacts with other characters and himself. The differences between his disposition when with Aleksy versus Dana and then in this evil evil scene I dunno if I can keep reading because I am a whimp and I don't like my fav characters to be captured and given to the monsters under the bed.... yeah. ANYWAY. Fantastic job with him this month and always, Em <3 He's a brilliant starbaby and he better have a happy ending because otherwise I will cry.

Character nominated: Dubhghall Moriarty
Reason: Dug is darling and fun and I feel like there are so many more layers to him that we haven't gotten to see yet. ^_^ I have really enjoyed reading him and he's been playing off the other characters at the Hammer & Anvil in such different and interesting ways that I keep finding myself drawn back to him over and over again in just about every thread he's been in so far. I can't wait to read more!

Character nominated: Lyoshka no Ariake
Reason: Though this isn't the first month Lyoshka's been active, he's really burst onto the scene this month. Garen's put the poor kid through the fucking wringer and it's been great to see him squirm and seethe and react. Lyoshka has the potential to really shake things up in DN and we're seeing the beginnings of that right now and it's awesome.

Character Nominated: Ferria Perfossor
Reason: LegbasCrossroad has done a wonderful job of bringing Ferria to life. The writing is humorous and well-timed, and Legbas does a great job of painting a very clear picture of the character's mannerisms and demeanor without being verbose. She's a delight to read, and makes me wish I had more characters in Pruul.

Character Nominated: Pices Adelphos
Reason: Reid has done such a fantastic job with this C. He's endlessly entertaining and I have really loved the exchange between Pisces and Michaela. They're rotten and perfectly matched.

Thread Nominated: Why Weep, Briseis?
Reason: This thread is just fun. As dark and corrupt as so much of Terreille is supposed to be, it's not often we get to see two characters being so casually horrible. The conversation between Michaela and Pisces is perfection for the unrepentant decadence of Hayll's elite. Starling and Reid have really done well with two wonderful characters.

Thread title: time to feed the monsters
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/time-to-feed-the-monsters/
Reason: watching hayden balance herself, having to pull back from the rush of izzy's emotions, is something else. especially when those emotions speak to her. it's great to see izzy in this thread as well, the care and love she has for duncan obvious, just as much as she will clearly not hesitate to do whatever it takes to rescue him from his kidnappers.

Thread title: i'll bury you good and straight and right
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/i'll-bury-you-good-and-straight-and-right/
Reason: there is something about the interactions between draven and shyloh (amelie) that just speak to me. that dash and dani are also at the top of their games playing the both of them also makes this thread worth reading. it's great waiting to see how things are going to play out and how shyloh is going to handle this "imposter" draven.

Character nominated: Shyloh Knight
Reason: It's been awesome to see Dani come back swinging. Shyloh's threads this last month have been awesome. Dani has written her as a powerful force and also vulnerable and filled with self-doubt. She's a complex, fantastically written character and Dani deserves some mad props.

Character nominated: Adavera al-Jinan
Reason: What a month! She adopted a GEIBA orphan, is recovering from her leg being healed and is STILL finding time to guide and encourage not just the Queen of her own clan, but the Sabbah and Tabur as well. Is there anything this woman can't do?

Home is behind, the world ahead, And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night, Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead, We'll wander back to home and bed.

Character nominated: Niccolo Florian Faa
Reason: Sol burst out the gate with this new character with multiple threads and plots. Nick is a unique mix of so many elements of Dena Nehele, a product of Aristo cruelty that has set him up to be the perfect Myos. The way he responds to the baffling kindness (and naivete) of Riley and Jeremiah, his bluntness during an awkward exchange with Radu, and his dedication to his new mentor have been a great example of the depth of this character. I'm super excited to see what comes next. 

Thread title: How sweet, how fitting, to die for the motherland
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/shalador-45/how-sweet-how-fitting-to-die-for-the-motherland/
Reason: This thread has been a long time coming. Nova has FINALLY returned to Shalador at risk of sacrificing her own life to tell the truth of Rian Maboya's betrayal of her baby sister and her former lover to send them both to die in the mines of Pruul. Dani and Gavin are offering us fantastic insight into the mindset and beliefs of the Black Widow Council and Reid's writing of Nova is, always, flawless. I cannot wait to see how this thread progresses. Wonderful job, loves.
