Best Creative Writing - This is Foxy's second consecutive win, and her 4th award overall - Sadly this is the smallest number of nominees. Perhaps I will have to get my creative juices flowing...
Best Volunteer - Jean Lucio becomes the third person to win Best Volunteer twice, along with Ryan Trimble and Dante. All multiple winners have had consecutive victories - Dante has been nominated every year for this award. No other member has been nominated 13 times for any award. (Though one has been nominated 12 times, any guesses as to who?) -
There was one spare room in the penthouse of 667 Dark Avenue, and it was time to decide who would be the new roommate. There were five people who had applied for it and been invited for interviews.
"It's 2020", one of the existing inhabitants said. "People in the real world are being quarantined for some reason, what if that happens in this weird imaginary online world? We have to pick the right person to be quarantined with for a while".
So they looked at the notes they had taken during the interviews, trying to decide who would be the best potential quarantine buddy.
Bear - didn't even turn up to the interview, that's just rude
Charlie - first evryone thought he wouldn't turn up too, but he was just a few minutes late. Seems like a very fun person to hang out with.
Sherry Ann - not as mysterious as everyone thought. Very nice person, ended up having lots of interesting conversations.
Willis - very nice guy
Bee - lovely person, likes baking which is always a good thing for a roommate.
"Really, Anka?", Mister M said. "These are your notes? We talked to Willis for over an hour and you can't think of more than three words to write down?" Everyone agreed to put someone else in charge of taking notes next time. They remembered everyone enough anyway, so they just voted, and decided that the new roommate was...

Excuse me for being late! Thanks to everyone for choosing me volunteer of the year Best Volunteer! It's been a lot of fun to keep making theories and post here. With respect to the prize that I most wanted and did not win, I am glad that Foxy received at least one prize, even without her being here. And with your leave, I'll be a bad loser. I think I lost because the vote was taken before I finished Untie My Silence Knot ... I find that story sensational because of the last chapter and it's difficult to judge the quality before the end. But I am happy to have lost, because if there is one thing that motivates me a lot it is defeat ... I hope to create something of interest next year, and I hope that there are competitors here to write creative things so that we can compete next year. Regarding the banner with lemons, I really enjoyed it !! Thank you! I found it very appropriate in many ways, in addition to being very beautiful. It will be great to have such a talented artist as a companion during the quarantine. Congratulations Sherry Ann! (great speech Anka)
Ladies and gentlemen of 667 Dark Avenue, it is now time for the Best Artist Award to be presented.
Let it be known that the award presenter thought of this idea approximately 12 hours before the award was to be presented, so please do excuse the sub-par animation, the dingy stock photos, and the questionable royalty-free background music.
And for those who, for some reason, cannot view the video, fret not – a transcription of this video is provided down below so you don’t miss anything!]
Now that that’s out of the way…welcome to the stage, the award presenter, tk!
Hello everyone, I hope you’re having a nice day! First of all, I’d like to congratulate all the winners so far – I’m sure it’s all very well-deserved!
I’d also like to congratulate the award presenters as well as banner-makers for doing a phenomenal job at making this year’s Awards a memorable one.
Now, onwards with the show!
Art is undeniably something powerful, something that can bring people together. I myself discovered this forum in 2009 through the fan arts posted by members who are now long-gone.
Since then, I’ve seen many more talented artists pass through the site, each posting either delightful fan arts or original arts, or both!
So now, I am here to present the Best Artist Award to one member of the site, who has shown great artistic talent in the last year. Here are the nominees:
1. SMOKE SIGNALS
2. TERRY CRAIG
3. VIOLET BUN FORTUNA
Sorry for resizing all your artworks, folks, but WHOA those are some AMAZING fan arts! Even though we shall have only one winner today, know that you are all very talented and that your art helps liven up this slowly-dying forum in a major way.
tk - the Penthouse used to be a chatroom, which has now been usurped by the shout box.
I'm not sure that's entirely right - they carried on side by side for a while, as they served different purposes. I think the penthouse dried up in the end because there was hardly anyone here. Now that the place is filling up perhaps we should try it again.
