For the post "Coming Home and Other Huge Mistakes." Once again I find myself compelled to put my best friend and her seemingly infinite talents over. We've had some serious jackasses appear in our adventures: Lovejoy, Holt, Albright, and now Ricky Justice. Nothing is so satisfying as watching one of them get their comeuppance and Gabby's duo of Gallia and Sami owned the arrogant little shit. A joy to read.

Awarded Mon Aug 12th, 2019 @ 3:02pm
For the character of Baby Tayalas. Not only is our little Blueberry adorable as the semi-official mascot of the Elysium, getting to share her milestones as she grows is just awesome for the entire Elysium family who fall in love with her more with every new word she learns. I'm also pretty sure she was screwing with Gallia the entire time, lol. This character totally deserves recognition and Gabby for creating and playing her well in spite of how hard it is to make an infant character rich and well developed.

SANA!!!

Gabby has been exceptionally kind towards me out of character, and made me feel very welcome amongst the crew.

I doubt myself a lot especially when it comes to my hobbies and things I genuinely try hard at, But regardless Gabby made me feel proud as a writer and I don't know how else to thank her

For the post "Maybe She's Right" A wonderful post of self doubt and a sense of loss from a simple misunderstanding how doubt
spreads like vines in a garden and choke off rational thought and blind the character's common sense.

A wonderful post that showcases this writer's enormous creative ability and talent.

Gallia Norris, fierce Scotswoman, doting and loving mother to Tayalas, ardent lover of Kara Hoffman and faithful and loyal
friend to many of the Elysium crew. A character who if real would inspire us to say I want to be like her. She goes above
and beyond in her love for Tayalas and Kara. She leave no stone unturned in helping those in need, often ignoring her
own needs to help others. A wonderful. inspiring character.

For the outstanding "Plotting, Even if Holographically" post. A well written and thought out post showing the turmoil
Gallia is under in regards to her former sleazy brother in law and equally sleazy family and the stress it is producing
in her life,

However Gallia takes the high road even if it is unsatisfactory in it's outcome.

An extremely talented writer at the top of her game. Kudos for an excellent post.

For the sweet interactions between Baby Tayalas and Cdr. Gary Taylor, who I think we can safely call Tay's father figure. This award is about love, and love isn't always romance and seduction, and I feel this familial love experienced between these two characters and shared with the rest of us should be rewarded as such.

For "Swim with the Duckies," a lovely post that would not have been possible without Gabby's soulful writing of the Elysium's fave mother/daughter duo. They make something as mundane and every day as a swimming lesson into a beautiful study on the nature of love and family. So thrilled to have both of the writers of this post here as members of the Elysium family.
