Thread title: Daughter
Thread link: https://www.bloodrites.net/askavi-52/daughter/
Reason: This is a gorgeous solo piece from Reid, weaving the past and the present into poetry. I love how the poem provides breaks in the scene as Reid takes us through history and hard choices. Well done!!
i have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night

Character nominated: Arkadie Graveworthy
Reason: Black Widow Queen, need I say more? Well, yes, I do, but over the past months of play we have see Arkadie Graveworthy show that she is every inch of the dual-caste Black Widow Queen that she is. From reuniting with her bonded Phoebus Aegle as a Queen to training Jeremiah Mercer in the ways of being a Black Widow, we have seen how Arkadie walks the line and finds a perfect balance between her Castes because she is each with equal portion, never one more than the other. Insightful, quick-witted, and never without something to say or do, Arkadie is a delight to read and I look forward to what comes in the future.

Thread title: Words, I swallow words
Thread link: https://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/words-i-swallow-words/
Reason: trigger warnings for this thread include csa and mutilation. That out of the way, this is a wonderful thread that explores the process of healing a damaged chalice. Arkadie reaches within herself and, in other places, has to shelve her own strong emotions to heal and help Phoebus work through his history and trauma, the very things that broke him. It's heart-wrenching and beautiful and deserves to be read. Leez writes beautifully in this thread, capturing that pain that Phoebus experienced and sharing it with the readers and Reid captures the essence of a Black Widow Queen who has to fight back her emotions to heal that which is hers.

Thread title: kinda I want to
Thread link: https://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/kinda-i-want-to/msg115023/#msg115023
Reason: Something I really love about good writing, and I think this particular RP form lends itself well to, is when characters really earn their consequences. Jon and Maarika have a very long, complex history. They are by turns passionate and ambivalent, cruel and loving. There's always specific reasons for what's happening between them. When they come to these quieter moments, their vulnerability feels real and moving. This thread is a really great read, and their interaction is such a pleasure.

Character nominated: Hinata no Kagen
Reason: Hinata is a bad ass. Not just in her history and in her plot role, but also in the way that Zen writes her. She is this determined, forward-thinking, open-minded woman who does what she feel she musts not just for her family but her country. It's not an easy position she's in. It would in fact be easier if she just takes up power for herself, but I love that Zen has illustrated why she won't. She's deeply principled and inspires respect from other characters around her in each scene she's in. It's great to write with and off of, and even better to read.

Thread title: Red Rage
Thread link: https://www.bloodrites.net/nharkava-47/red-rage/
Reason: It's fun to watch a pair of Dark Jewels get snarly at each other. It's even more fun to see the dance of Protocol played up and how important it is in a court. Ebba and Severin have enough attitude for all of Nharkava in the first place and Nicole and Em write it with such great sass it's both a funny and intriguing read.
