Congratulations violetbunfortunate/Violent Bun Fortuna/Violent Bun Tun on best artist! I hope we get to see more of your Harry Potter art in the coming year, it is really awesome.
Oh my goodness. First of all, congratulations to everyone who was nominated for most compassionate and best new member. Since I joined, I have seen so many people here who are really, really nice. It makes me smile when I think about how everyone gets along so well. And each person on that list of nominations for new members is really an impressive addition to the forum!
Terry, I loved your presentation. Thank you for your reference to me being a mama. Hearing my daughter say "Mama!" is one of my favorite sounds in the world, and being a mama and a wife are two of my favorite things to be.
Uncle Algernon, I also loved your presentation. It made me chuckle at several moments and left me seriously wondering about the sugar bowl.
Bear, that banner is AWESOME!!! Thank you for making it.
And thank you to everyone who voted for me, for welcoming me to your forum this year!
Faith is being sure about what we hope for, being convinced about things we do not see. Hebrews 11:1 For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
Oh wow, I didn't even see the bit about the sugar bowl. Yes, where has it gone?
Of course, Foxy, if you are DH you cannot really be a mama.
Terry: I can quite believe that I forgot your birthday. In the olden days there was a calendar showing birthdays, which allowed me to work them out in advance, but now if I don't remember to check on the actual day, I will miss it. And yes, I did win Most Compassionate, jointly with Trip in 2017. It was the crowning moment of my time here, as this is the most coveted of awards.

those who've been around for a while will probably remember me. i've been historically in charge of delivering anonymous valentines on february. did you know, kiddos, that there were multiple couples that were born here at 667 and that even became real-life pairings?? tho i've been kinda quiet, i never abandoned you, teehee!!
i made this great comeback to present an award and remind you of my existence. what award, you might ask?? well not "best pairing" as anyone would expect cause zortegus didn't save it for me ¬¬ so blame him for being such a mess
anyhoo!! the award i'm presenting today is a really important one: "best creative writing"!! okay yeah it's not that important since most people don't write creative things anymore (thanks centennials, i blame you!!) but there are still some artistic souls around us, so i think their existence becomes even more important, don't you think?? so lets see...
Jacques Snicket got nominated for his "the deleterious diagnosis of doctor diogenes", and we're afraid the diagnosis was not too good for him since he got zero votes ((
cwm got nominated for "a series of unfortunate events: the text adventure game".
do you want to know if he won? y/n
if you pressed y: okay i'll tell you. despite being super original and fun, cwm didn't get any votes
if you pressde n: you clearly don't care about this user, so let's move on and go to the next one.
QuisbyGadabout , who's been around for a while already, got nominated for his "arthur poe's a series of fiscally irresponsible events", a really original take on everyone's favorite series of books or so i was told. anyway he got 4 votes but that's not enough for winning. sorry quisby!! hopefully i'll deliver you many valentines on february :*
also, a newcomer got nominated for this award. don't we all just love newcomers? btw i'm talking about Foxy obvi!! she wrote "the sunny baudelaire diaries" and got really popular lately, winning two awards so far. she got an amount of six votes, being the winner of this zortie!! wooo!!
congratulations everyone so far, and congratulations foxy for getting your third award this year ^^
here's this banner Terry Craig designed, isn't it gorge?

Nice to meet you, Cupid! And congratulations Foxy! Foxy is amazing! I'm super fan of her. She is so kind that allowed me to win at least one award. Terry, your banner looks amazing. Thank you very much. I'll have a painting done for me, and a cup with your banner.

Oh, huzzah! Many thanks everyone for the votes and congratulations— and I offer my own congratulations to the other winners.
Now, it is my very great pleasure to announce the results of the best pairing contest. An interesting award which honours those who have made a special contribution to the forum through their unique partnership, friendship, or rivalry with another member. This year there were three nominations, but only one winner (well, technically two winners, but you know what I mean).
In joint second place with three votes apiece: Dante & Jeanlucio10, and Dante & Hermes.
In first place, then, with a grand total of four points ....
BEAR AND TERRY!
Congratulations to the winners, commiserations to the not-winners.
Now that Bear and Terry won "Best Pairing", I'm gonna talk about our next award, for which they were the only nominated. Not only that, but it's the only award the candidates nominated themselves.
I'm talking of course of the "Best Thread" award, where we reward original, fun, interesting, unique and/or special threads. This year we had a lot of great options:
"Good Ass Shots" by bear "Flowers" by bear "Quotes from wikipedia" by bear "Quotes from peppermince's post history" by bear "what would your knuckle tats say" by bear "Rather Nice Album Art" by bear "The Raddest Book Covers" by bear "Monkeys" by bear "The Proust Questionnaire" by bear "guess who's coming to dinner?" by bear "NEW FIC: LemonySnicket'sValentineSurprise (gone sexual) (R!)" by bear "Bite, or Suck" by bear "2018 disques" by bear "2018 flicks" by Terry "Lemony Snicket and Edward Gorey: A Comparison" by Terry "ASoUE: Part of 90s Trend of Postmodern Advertising?" by Terry "Fairy Tales" by Terry ",l." by Terry
Most of them got, of course, zero votes.
"Quotes from Wikipedia" and "The Raddest Book Covers" by bear got one vote each.
"what would your knucle tats say" by bear, "ASoUE: Part of 90s Trend of Postmodern Advertising?" and ",l." by Terry got three votes each, being the winners of this award.
Congratulations Terry Craig for getting two thirds of this award, and klausfan1 for getting one third!
(this was a very tricky award; if it was "Best Thread Creator", Terry would have won with a total of six votes, but since it isn't, it's a three-ways tie)
