SPOTLIGHT ANNOUNCEMENTS!
All prizes have been distributed!


Congratulate @Muirgen winning Member of the Season!

From her seriously sunny demeanor to her hilarious Novus character doodles, Muirgen is a wonderfully positive force of Novus! Even though she's recently been travelling, she's still a constant face around the community. Like all of our wonderful members, Novus would not be the same without her ♥



Congratulate @Maerys on winning Character of the Season!

Maerys is a new face to the world of Novus, but that doesn't mean she hasn't already made an impact and explored so much. Kealie has a beautiful eloquence in her writing and it shines wonderfully through Maerys, who dutifully looks for the positive even in the tough times that have befallen Novus.



Congratulate @Boudika on winning Quote of the Season!

From THANK YOU KINDLY, WOLF — "Other concerns did not appeal to her: she did not stop to consider that this was no longer her obligation, she was a dancer, a mere dancer, she ought to have paused to still the flames, to calm the children, but tragedy had struck.

And what did a warrior do, besides act? What language did she speak, besides tragedy?"

Boudika came in like a tornado in this thread! While unable to prevent the tragedy as the Court's grain stash went up in flames (no one would have been able to prevent it), she was quick to react and apprehend one of the criminals involved. The last line of this quote was especially chilling in all the best ways.



Congratulate @Israfel and @Ulric on winning Pair of the Season!

These two are an amazing duo - equally strong and powerful, a dedicated two who will make wonderful parents to a guaranteed-to-be-feisty little @Charlotte! We look forward to seeing their relationship continue to blossom and to see the path they forge for their new family.



Congratulate @Llewelyn and @Mateo on "Perish the Thought" winning Thread of the Season!

Even in the particularly negative times that have befallen Novus, it's a breath of fresh air to see that there is still some sense of semi-normalcy to some residents of Novus. As RB said, it's especially nice to see the effect of and opinion on politics from an outside point of view!

- @Teiran in torment

“Other concerns did not appeal to her: she did not stop to consider that this was no longer her obligation, she was a dancer, a mere dancer, she ought to have paused to still the flames, to calm the children, but tragedy had struck.

And what did a warrior do, besides act? What language did she speak, besides tragedy? “
- @Boudika in thank you kindly, wolf

“Mistakes are lessons that can haunt us for the remainder of our lives if we so choose, but we cannot let them define us. Like stones we can hold them and build with them, forming a new life, learning from our previous transgressions" 
- @Somnus in a violet’s fragrance

"She's a steeple with no foundation, an altar with no religion, a ship trapped in a sand dune. She is a hundred different things that do not make sense anymore, nothing does."
- @Isra in sculptures of open-armed sadness

Spotlight Nomination!

Which OTS: Thread
Show us: perish the thought 
Reason: eris and rae’s writing just meshes so well together, and in a season full of drama, it’s nice to read something less intense in between (and hear them address politics with an outside p.o.v)!

Spotlight Nomination!

Which OTS: Quote
Show us: “Other concerns did not appeal to her: she did not stop to consider that this was no longer her obligation, she was a dancer, a mere dancer, she ought to have paused to still the flames, to calm the children, but tragedy had struck.

And what did a warrior do, besides act? What language did she speak, besides tragedy? “
thank you kindly, wolf 
Reason: I looooove love love Boudika and Syndicate’s writing and I think this quote perfectly represents how Boudika is still caught between her past and present/future!!

Spotlight Nomination!

Which OTS: Member
Show us: @Eris
Reason: I just love this girl and I’m so glad she’s back with us!! She is such a positive force and spectacular writer <3

Spotlight Nomination!

Which OTS: CHARACTER
Show us: @Boudika
Reason: Ah, shall I say it's because all of her posts are so lovely, so detailed, so immersive to read while also giving me such a good sense of her character and an intriguing look at her past? Every thread of hers makes me want to know more about her and the world she came from; it feels so clearly realized. Though new this season, Boudika has been such an active part of Night Court and exploring Denocte through her posts makes me love it even more.

Spotlight Nomination!

Which OTS: Quote
Show us: "Mistakes are lessons that can haunt us for the remainder of our lives if we so choose, but we cannot let them define us. Like stones we can hold them and build with them, forming a new life, learning from our previous transgressions"
[email protected]Somnus in A Violet's Fragrance
Reason: It's just... so #Somnus. Wise and eloquent and perfect <3

Which OTS: Pair
Show us: @Teiran and @Mathias
Reason: These two! First of all I would love to see more of them in general. Together they are very compelling to me... Mattie is so troubled and self-destructive and Tei is an excellent counterbalance to that with her absolutely SOLID consistency. From this season I think they only had two threads together: 1 and 2

Which OTS: Pair
Show us: @Eros and @Aion
Reason: Reading these two always makes me feel happy and giddy and warm <3 and check out that engagement thread!!

Which OTS: Member
Show us: @El Rey
Reason: El Rey is fascinating and dark and wonderful. I want to give him a hug, but I am also afraid of him. (I also think every thread he's in is worthy of an OTS nomination, but I didn't want to be *that* person who nominated them all.)

I will likely be back for thread OTS at a later time <3 there are too many good ones to choose between!

Spotlight Nomination!

Which OTS: Character
Show us: @Aghavni
Reason: I love Aghavni. She is beautiful and fierce and not to mention runs a whole business (did I mention she's only 3 years old too?). I love her story of being in hiding/disguise and all the little details of her involvement in the world of the Scarab, and I want all my characters to meet her.

Which OTS: Character
Show us: @Maerys
Reason: Maerys is new to Novus but she's already quite involved around the world. I adore the way that Kealie writes her, she's curious and eloquent and brave, and it's easy to forget that she is one of the younger characters on site because of it. I can't wait to follow her development (and hopefully thread with her soon).

Which OTS: Character
Show us: @Septimus
Reason: Septimus; my adopted son and the newest of Novus' most eligible bachelors (for good reason!). I enjoy all of his posts, and he's my perfect type. Witty, smart, good-looking, but layered and more than he appears on the surface.

Which OTS: Pair
Show us: @Israfel and @Ulric
Reason: Okay so maybe I'm a bit biased because they are my soon-to-be parents, but Israfel and Ulric, I feel, are a surprising and sort of refreshing couple. Not sugar-sweet, both strong, both workaholic types, both Wardens. They make a powerful pair, and Israfel's flirtatious antics matched with Ulric's serious sense makes their threads interesting to read.

Which OTS: Thread
Show us: Many-Faced Magic with @Elchanan and @Septimus
Reason: FLIRTY BOYS ALERT! This thread is a riot to read in the best way. Elchanan and Septimus are both really great characters, and them together is pure gold. Plus, I love the sides of them that you get to read in this thread.

Which OTS: Quote
Show us: "She's a steeple with no foundation, an altar with no religion, a ship trapped in a sand dune. She is a hundred different things that do not make sense anymore, nothing does." by @Isra in Sculptures of Open-Armed Sadness
Reason: There's something really poignant about this quote, especially considering all of the things that Isra has gone through and will continue to go through. Reading this line in the context of her post, this thread, and all that is happening, reads hollow, painful and searching. And poetically beautiful.

Which OTS: Member
Show us: @Muirgen
Reason: Muirgen is a constant and friendly face, and let's face it, her comics of our characters are so spot on it's like she writes the characters herself. Muir writes and comes up with really unique and compelling characters (cow fam, anyone?), and I think she is well deserving of this spotlight!
