Thread title: Do What You Must
Thread link: https://www.bloodrites.net/little-terreille-48/do-what-you-must/
Reason: Wow! I did not see this bit of Odelle's history coming into play. Erica always plays her as the nice, almost perfect on a pedestal Queen who would never harm another and then this! It's wonderful to see Odelle and Kamal working through something unspeakable together, the kind of bad that either forges deeper connections or drives people apart.

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

Thread title: bet you didn't know that i was dangerous
Thread link: https://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/bet-you-didn't-know-that-i-was-dangerous/
Reason:



BUT IN ALL SERIOUSNESS. Damn. I've been following this thread and just had ~one of those feelings~ that something big was gonna happen. Needless to say it did not disappoint! Not only was it delightful to see some actual Tantalus performances in action, but the recent happenings are wild! Can't wait to see how it progresses!

Character nominated: Virtuosa Illion
Reason: f i t e  q u e e n - seriously, she is! Virtuosa is not your typical Queen of Dea al Mon. She's here to kick butt and take names and make the Brood feel it. Zen has does an amazing job in bringing her to life and I look forward to all the trouble she's going to get into.

Character nominated: Lyoshka no Ariake
Reason: From reattaching a severed arm to its owner to having to navigate rocky emotional waters, Lyoshka has been through it. I have no doubt there's more to come, especially considering that he's collared and owned by Garen L'Voide, and that we will continue to see Lyoshka weather this path that he's on. Reid captures and paints the emotional distress that Lyoshka is going through and you cannot help but feel for him.

Character nominated: Silver Thrax
Reason: gimme more silver!! That said I have a certain fondness for characters that break the yolk of their Caste and Silver does so while also embracing it at the same time. She's fiery, dark, and delightful. I know that every thread Silver is in is one that I will enjoy reading because phinn does an amazing job in writing her. Beside, gotta love a character that isn't afraid to break a few faces to make sure something gets done.

Character nominated: Seung Corro
Reason: The past couple months have seen Tacea blooming with activity and it's in no small part thanks to this guy right here. A Warlord Prince to his core, but of the multi-faceted variety that I so fondly enjoy. Seung isn't someone who wants to rule but in turn that has managed to make him a solid Regent over the home that is more befitting to him than his birthplace of Dhemlan. He bears many internal scars and troubles of which are beautifully conveyed by Reid and yet he still manages to drag himself out of bed despite them to do what he must for Tacea and its people.

Thread title: a sudden point of convergence
Thread link: https://www.bloodrites.net/dena-nehele-39/a-sudden-point-of-convergence/
Reason: Lyoshka and Jeremiah are one of those ships that I shipped before I even realized they were a ship (say that 5x fast). They caught my attention early on after my return to BR in January and I've been keeping tabs on them ever since. Every thread is wrought with emotional conflict and splendidly orchestrated by Em and Reid, but I like this one in particular due to the amount of growth that is present if you're considering the "where they've been/where they started" to the "where they are now." The absent realizations, the inner-thought processes, et cetera - it's subtle in its own way, but it is assuredly there and doesn't feel forced in any capacity.

Character nominated: Zhihao An
Reason: We have seen a lot of sides from Zhihao, from moments with his Queen to moments with his lover to speaking with others due to his position as Spymaster. It is easy to see that Zhihao has a quick, analytical mind, and striving to do not only what is best for his Queen but his people (the Tang) as well. Then there are his moments with his daughter, whom he loves dearly but cannot reveal his identity to. Leez writes Zhihao as a remarkable character, multi-faceted and full of promise, and definitely worth reading.

Thread title: SNAFU
Thread link: https://www.bloodrites.net/askavi-37/snafu
Reason: Drakkar and Illyrian are just such intense characters. Their relationship is so tense and difficult and this thread really shows them both off, both for how far they have come and how far they still have to go. You can feel the frustration from both of them and how each of their points of view are valid, just entirely clashing. Phedre and Gavin are both great writers and this really exemplifies them.
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.
