Thread title: Not Enough Room For You And Me
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/pruul-42/not-enough-room-for-you-and-me/
Reason: I love this back and forth between Omid and Lucky, the carefully thought through mental processes of Omid versus the haphazardly thrown together ideas of Lucky. It's a nice juxtaposition, nice character study.

i have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night

Reason I think this thread is so dynamic, not only because it has such a big impact on the Mineborn, but because it shows Pruulian customs and culture at its core, exploring the true meaning of the territory and it's people. I am really excited to see how it progresses and love the beautiful words and characters that Dash and Gavin give to Pruul.

Character nominated: Abulurd ibn Bali
Reason: Abulurd's just a really cool concept, this father-of-the-desert type who's been part of Pruul's backstory for centuries, now. He's had a hand in shaping the way the Territory has moved from a very subtle place in the background, but has not shied away from taking decisive action when the need has arisen. He's very much in love with Pruul, and Dash's personification of a Long Lived Healer Warlord who's invested in his home is spot-on, in my opinion. I love reading his posts.

Character nominated: Azar al-Latifh
Reason: She is such a dominante personality in any thread she is featured. You want to applaude her confidence even as you kinda sorta dislike her arrogant butt. I love how she sees things and is honest in her perceptions.

Thread title: take your time, consume all of it
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/take-your-time-consume-all-of-it/
Reason: taking a moment to ignore that i write one of the characters in this thread. There is a lot that goes down in this thread that makes me want to nominate it. One of these things is that you truly DO need to tread carefully when you anger a Queen such as Riley because she is absolutely not afraid to push your buttons to make a point. There is also the matter of discussions of Etiquette and Protocol with Court as Riley and Jeremiah try to turn this lesson into more than just what Lord Ziga is teaching Radu. Emotions run high in this thread, especially since a certain pair of nap buddies were interrupted, but more than that you get insight into the Queen's Bond and just what it is like when it is accepted, cherished, and well loved. Radu's realizations at the end are also something worth nothing because it seems to settle into his head that this is absolutely serious business and he needs to get a handle on it stat.

Thread Title:And I'd Promise You Anything For Another Shot At Life
Thread Link:http://www.bloodrites.net/chaillot-38/and-i'd-promise-you-anything-for-another-shot-at-life/
Reason:  Yeah, I've got a character in this thread and I love her, but that's not why I'm nominating this thread.  I'm nominating this thread because watching Jewel and Jean try to get around their own emotional roadblocks is both tense and heart-breaking.  There has been a LOT of character development for these two over the last while, and seeing Jewel swallow down her antisocial leanings to try to help her Male while watching her Male try to protect her from himself is epic in that Greek Tragedy kind of way.

Thread Title:Cold Drinks and Hot Nights
Thread Link:http://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/cold-drinks-and-hot-nights
Reason:I have loved Eirnan since he was first made, and that hasn't changed.  Watching this thread unfurl has been making me cackle like an old demented matchmaking shrew - because I love how Eirnan ran from one young woman to save his sense of decorum only to fall headfirst into the cleavage of a younger woman.  The hilarity has had me in tears... and the writing has been delightfully steamy.

Character Nomination: Solstice Moriwen
Reason: Solstice is a cold, dispassionate creature that has had a problem/blessing dropped in her lap.  I love how Haly writes her - I love that she is this Ice Queen who can completely empathize with the Priestess in front of her -- even though no one could tell if they were to look at her.  Watching her try to puzzle out this 'odd alien woman' makes me root for the chance she might crack the ice around her heart.

Character Nomination: Omid al-Bali
Reason:  Omid took a giant step - he left the Izar to join the Bali.  Watching that thread unfold, and the thread where he tells Lucky, was absolutely breath taking.  I was holding my breath at moments, wondering how badly it would go.  Gavin has written Omid in a way that makes you want to just hold him and protect him from the harsh realities of the world, even as you acknowledge that it's time for Omid to grow up.

Thread title: Like Thunder, Going to Shake Your Ground
Reason: I enjoyed this due to the appearance of a new-ish bond between Queen and Prince, but at the same time the Bond allows instant trust. Thus, Lady Amerys feels not-quite-almost-safe to explain to her new Bonded Prince just exactly who runs matters in Little Terreille, and while by Protocol it should be her, it certainly isn't. The number of excuses as to "why Amerys doesn't really lead" in previous threads comes to an interesting head here, and even though while Davos might have doubt for the reasoning his new Queen fears, he does not appear doubt the validity of her emotion, despite her youth. It's a solid thread and almost romantic-realist, and I'm curious where these two will end up with more writing.

"The difference between true nobility and false is this. One is gold put to the use of paving stones. The other is tin polished to ape a service of silver. Both are cruel."

lemme slide in under this here deadline

Thread title: Lotus Among the Witchblood
Thread link: http://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/lotus-among-the-witchblood/
Reason: In this thread, Ji Yoon and Maseo begin their domestic takeover of Dena Nehele. OK not really, but I feel like they could. Leez and Gavin have picked two characters who play off each other so naturally I find myself doubting that this is REALLY their first meeting. The discussion with Diana, the stop in the apothecary, even the decision to not engage the aggressors after, it all shows something new about both of these characters.

Character nominated: Omid al-Bali
Reason: Omid's undergone a lot of changes this month. He's joined the Bali, becoming the first Mineborn to really start building his identity outside of their group, and drawn lines that have been incredibly difficult for him to draw. Gavin shows this beautifully in every post, and lets Omid's Princely nature really reflect off the personalities of everyone he interacts with.
