Thread Title: Moesian White, Tulzbruja Red
Thread Link: http://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/moesian-white-tulzbruja-red/
Reason: I really love all the give and take in this thread! I know I'm IN it, so nominating it might be kind of gauche, but I'm really super impressed with particularly Phedre's writing for Riley and that give-and-take she's having with almost every member of her Court. Like, she's trying, but all of her preferred moves won't work here, and she's out of her depth but trying to keep all this shit under control. Sorinna and Gabriella's interactions are super sweet, and Lucien and Riley butting heads was awesome, and Dragos taking the hit for Riley's control of the event, they're all just like, BAM, nice. And I also think it's really notable that this thread involves almost every single character in Dena Nehele. Most of them even make multiple posts, which can be really hard with so many different writers to keep track of, so I definitely think this thread deserves props and Phe in specific definitely deserves it for setting all of this up. <3

Also, Bowie's line for Val with the "I'd rather you dance with aristos with arable land" made me laugh so hard even though my ribs hurt :X

Character nominated: Aleksy Grey
Reason: Aleksy is amazing! She's vulnerable, she's insightful, she's sweet, and she's also a little terrifying. It's rare for us to see someone playing around with the idea of a witch being connected to the Twisted Kingdom and how their perception gets warped. You get so many random insights into the character and the characters she's interacting with. Reid handles it masterfully and gives us a character that's captivating to read.

Character nominated: Kelda Voll
Reason: The Black Widow Kingpin of Little Terreille, Kelda is a fucking bad-ass. She is in many ways straight-talking and neferious. She's had her ups and downs but she came in strong this month in her threads with Violet and Travis and had this Netflix-style moment of taking ownership of some of the Black Widows of Goth. If there was a Daredevil in Little Terreille, Kelda would be his (or her) bad guy.

Thread title: Ride the Lightning
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/ride-the-lightning/
Reason: Draven's in this thread but it's all Kelda. If you haven't read it yet you need to, because it's amazing.

Nominations for July will stay open one week and close on Monday, August 7. Jamie's on LOA so I don't have access to the database at the moment to pull the list of eligible threads/characters. Please remember that in order to be eligible for Thread of the Month, threads need to have had 50% or more of their posts in August. To be eligible for Character of the Month, characters must have had more than one post in August.

Happy Nominating!

Thread title: Mutual Interests
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/mutual-interests/
Reason: I was in this thread, but I really enjoyed the first meeting and interaction between Kiersten and Violet. Unlike a lot of Blood who try to strong-arm each other and go straight for dominance in some cases, this was two businesswomen sitting down, talking out a problem, and making a deal. Also fun is that both women are working for the same person, but neither has to invoke Kelda's name to get work done. This was a lot of fun to write!


Thread title: Sisters are...something
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/raej-43/sisters-are-something/
Reason: Rais and Nailah continue to define their burgeoning relationship, especially after both of them have been wounded by the defiance of their sisters. It's been a lot of fun watching these two guarded people slowly let down their walls. Rais thinks Nailah is out of his league, while Nailah is certain that Rais will decide at any moment that he's not interested in her. I've had a lot of fun writing this thread!

Thread title: Black Bird Fly Away
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/dea-al-mon-129/black-bird-fly-away/
Reason: The Tanithil family is another major family within Dea al Mon, if only because two of its three members serve in the Queen's Triangle. This thread, set shortly after the Brood attack, highlights the closeness and distance of that family at the same time. Cypress clearly cares for his family, but has difficulty showing it. Valor cares for his parents, but it's clear that he's closer to his mother than this father. The real standout, however, is Solace. She's grieving her sister, hurting over the distance of her husband, but still is still attempting to mend the gap between two men who are not just father and son, but Bond Brothers to the same Queen.


Character nominated: Solace Tanithil
Reason: Solace keeps getting kicked, yet she handles each situation with grace and strength. She's one of the most giving and warm characters I've read, even when she doesn't need to be. She's always a great read!

Character nominated: Violet Kaos
Reason: Each time I read Violet, I find another layer to her personality. Consummate businesswoman, mother-figure, and siren all in one, but there's always another way to read the character afterward. Looking forward to more!

Thread Title: it’s always a bar
Thread Linkhttp://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/it's-alwalys-a-bar/]it’s always a bar

This thread features a whirlwind of activity and characters. Yes I am in it but only in one post so it doesn’t super count. I just love the way Dash, phinn, Bowie, Ida and Gavin handled a lot of conversation and exposition in a wonderfully busy setting. Everyone involved managed to convey a lot of rich characterization and story set up both in regards to their personal storylines of the group. I really wanted to have Ishanvi come in and say something blunt/funny/insightful not necessarilly in equal proportions but Tylmandra’s questioning of Silver was too good a tonal shift to interrupt and I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone’s answers to The Underdog’s inquiry and The Healer’s response!

Character of the Month: Kiersten Danielsen

Kiersten is to date one of my favorite characters to read going through the learning of a caste and all the strange transitions that come with it. I particularly love all the layering of moods and insight Gavin conveys through the character’s voice. The punishment she devised in Mutual Interests was SO GOOD and honestly I can’t wait to see what a force to be reckoned with she becomes when her Black Widow nature comes on in full. Everywhere she’s written Kiersten’s personality is clear and defined under Gavin’s wordsmithing and honestly I can’t wait to get a chance to write with her.

Thread title: Canis minor
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/glacia-49/canis-minor/
Reason:  Reading this thread has made me laugh so much.  Watching the interchange between the no-filter Jakob who does and says as he wants and meeting the new member of his Queen's household and how he deals with Warren's blatant and flirtatious nature is amusing and entertaining. 

Thread title: Another Brick in the Wall
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/another-brick-in-the-wall/
Reason: Ooh, the sting of rejection is never a fun thing to deal with, even more so with someone that you have a strong relationship with to begin with.  I have enjoyed the interplay between Eirnan and Odelle, the Prince who won't step outside of his scruples and the Queen who has to deal with the hard reality of being turned down and must now step over the embarrassment and move on.  I think it shows a lot of depth to both characters in how they manage to keep personal and professional feelings separated.

Thread title: Kiss my eyes lay me to sleep
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/kiss-my-eyes-lay-me-to-sleep/
Reason: Everytime I read anything featuring Radu and Sway, I have the song "Love the way you lie" playing in my head.  I've told this to Erica as well, probably several times.  The relationship between Radu and Sway is almost romantic in a violent and graphic way.  The two of them certainly are a matching set, both of them with sex and violence overlapped in what seems to be a twisted way, it works well for them and they are both finding something in this unexpected relationship that is surprising even them.
