So I made the banner for Funniest Member, and yesterday on facebook I was saying "you'll never guess who won" and Sam thought I was being sarcastic and that he won, and I had to clarify, "no, you really will never guess". The Dante win was definitely unexpected.
I will send a fully-armed battalion to remind you of my love.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: If anyone has a banner of mine that's missing due to TinyPic shutting down, you can get it back from my Arts+Crafts thread, here, where I've re-uploaded all of them to a new server.

And now we've finally reached the end* of the Darkies. It's been a wild ride; we've laughed, we've cheered, and we've cried. We've seen some expected awards, and also watched upset after upset (seriously, I'm already campaigning for #lindora2016 guys ). And before we go, there is one** last award to present, the one we've all been waiting for: Most Valued Poster.
*well, not quite. Apparently the Best New Member presenter is MIA but I can't wait any longer. **again, not quite
There were 15 nominees for this award, a record number. All bring something unique to the table:
Anka - Without her we wouldn't be holding these awards today. Bandit - I don't know, some people think he's funny I guess? Bee - A strong, sassy, small, and sweet Scottish sister with lots of swag. BSam - Everyone's favorite bearded Australian. His hobbies include cooking, drinking, watching cool tv shows, judging people for watching not-so-cool tv shows, and ruling MM with an iron fist. Charlie - This guy is fierce, whether he's dressing in a bra covered in 100 tea bags or warning us of the dangers of the Teleban. His motto: live long and watch more K-Pop! Dante - I guess being moderator of Burdensome Books for a decade and being the the one with the most insider info on all things Lemony Snicket has to count for something. Hermes - Tirelessly wishing the forum a happy birthday (Seriously, why didn't he get nominated for Best Organiser?) Kyle - "queer nose for the straight bros queer mouth for the straight lout queer ears for the straight peers queer fingers for the straight dot matrix printer" Linda - Ew, who nominated her? Mister M - It's thanks to him The 667er exists again. And I hear he makes a killer cuffin. Pandora - Harry Styles voted for her. True story. I bet you didn't even know Harry was a member of 667, did you? Pen - Dude is super smart and once all his killer tests are done he's going to get into a great college. Plus he's got an adorable smile. Rellim - If any 667er suddenly had something life-threatening happen to them, we could rest assured that she would save their life. (Sorry Betsy I know you hate being the token nurse on all things 667 but I couldn't resist) Sherry Ann - Making online stalking adorable. Have fun at college, Piper! Teleram - If it weren't for him, we'd probably all be on s*uce right now. Thank you, Teleram, even if you do hate The Good Wife for no reason.
But there can only be one-
Wait, what's that you say? There are a lot of ties this year? Okay, fine, there can only be two-
What? Oops, sorry, apparently there were 3 winners of Best Volunteer. There can only be three-
What is it this time? Yes, yes, of course I remember the Best Pairing award. Due to its very nature, the winners come in pairs, making there be 4 winners this year. So there can only be four-
Seriously, what's with all the interruptions? Can't you let me present in peace? (a tense, whispered conversation is held) 667ers, I stand corrected, apparently there are Five winners of Most Valued Poster this year. They are...
