As she has been writing Lily, I have enjoyed creating a new character, both past and present, with her. I am looking forward to seeing where the story arc goes.

S'hib continues to develop into a much loved character aboard the sim and is always a joy to write with.

Arianna has been a joy to read especially since the mirror universe plot, very well written posts.

Arri, is a truly unique character and a joy to interact with. She is a finely developed character not some cut out cardboard character and it shows in her posts and interaction with other members of the crew.

His ability to write reflective posts is surely worth recognition, his two latest "To Absent Friends" and "Grateful" are prime examples. Jeff seems to have an uncanny ability to first entice the reader, then trap the reader in his words as his reflections are woven about them.

It has been 3 yeas since she walked onto the bridge and basically put her foot in her mouth in regards to the captain’s age. But in that time, this character has grown, and become a delight to write with!

This player has gone through so much these last few months, struggling with her health and a myriad of other things, but is still making efforts to be an active part of the game and is, in my opinion, one of the best people and characters here. Jinx deserves this, just as much as she needs to know how much we love her!-Gabby

Where do I begin? Anje Brett, the mighty Russian and heir to the legendary Wolf Queen. A rich, vibrant and unforgettable
character. She enriches every post she in. her compassion and caring for her friends Lia, Gallia, Gary and others is a wonder
to read and behold. Even her budding romance with Quinn is told with warmth, humor and realism.

She totally deserves this award.

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.

I messed up and nominated Cdr. Taylor for a lesser award than he deserved for the Christmas post, but then I got to thinking about all the player and character do to make it great here and decided this was the best award he could receive. A part of me wants to call this the "What A Man" award for this magnificent character who's part 007, part Magnum, part Riker, part time Santa, and all heart. If Gary Taylor were real, I would definitely consider him husband material: sweet, intelligent, fearless, and sexy. He totally deserves this!

This writer and her characters are always on top of their game, even when bouncing from position to position they still manage to improve the quality of our ship no matter where they're at.

Cdr. Taylor, both IC and OOC, takes on so much for the Elysium. He remains a white knight dedicated to the protection of the Federation in spite of a dark and tragic past and is, quite frankly, one of my favorite characters to read.
