    Thank you YF-23 for this award!

    I've sat here for the past fifteen minutes trying to think of something clever or wise to say, but having just come off of work I'm not feeling that clever nor wise. I suppose that's why I tend to update on the weekends. So, with your forbearance, I'll skip to the point of whatever clever or wise thing is lurking somewhere behind the dull stupor.

    Thank you. Everyone.

    I can say with absolute certainty that without AARland being such a welcome place, and without my fans posting comments, I wouldn't be here. I'd have wandered off long ago.

    I imagine many of our writers would say the same, especially since people tend to like more than one AAR, but my readers are awesome. They will find interesting bits of history I can incorporate or at least read about, take pictures of ancient ruins (yes, I still want to see them!) or speculate on what I've written and often come up with ideas I never would have dreamed of on my own. I then quietly pretend their speculation was right all along and head in that direction which usually leaves the story much richer as a result.

    Writing isn't always easy. Incorporating the level of detail I like to add sometimes takes hours of snooping through different websites, trying to decipher my own handwriting (the Rosetta stone helps here), and then picking though screenshots to see what I can use. It's not easy - but my readers make it worth it.

    They are the ones who made this award possible. When I carry it around this week, I do so in their name and with my gratitude.

    Thank you.

    Hear, hear! Nice speech! Very humble, too. We might give you ideas, at times, but it still takes a writer to turn those loose strings of ideas into a coherent story, something you do very well. Congrats, again.

    Absolutely spot on! A lot of people who commentate on here but who don't write have much better imaginations than some of us authors!

    Thanks again YF-23 for this wonderful award!

    I hope you will forgive my brevity as I'm getting ready for work:

    I've followed this writAAR for awhile now. He seems to prefer what we'd call 'gameplay' AARs, and his wit and clarity always make them a fun read. In addition, he's an excellent ambassador for the EU3/MEIOU mod.

    May I present:

    malurous and his Children of the Sun!

    Thank you CatKnight, I am happy to receive this award! Thanks for the praise as well. Also, thank you loki100, Qorten, Fookison and Enewald for the congrats.

    It appears that whenever I need my mood lifted (overworked and underpaid in RL, as usual ), this forum never fails to deliver. So I am always proud to do my part in trying to add to the quality content and friendly environment here.

    It is true that for my AARs, being firmly rooted in the gameplay is as much of a constant as pink annotations. This is especially true for Children of the Sun, which is for the most part written from my perspective, but even with a game world perspective, my style is to tell it as it happened in-game.

    I should also give props to all the other writAARs that managed to draw me back to these forums for so long before I actually wrote anything myself. I don't want to name the best ones or the ones that have influenced me the most as a writAAR as those lists would be too long, but kudos to Rensslaer for getting me to come in, read and eventually join a couple of months later, and antracer for creating an atmosphere in his interactive AAR that finally pulled me out of lurker status after almost three years of hanging around.

    Finally, thanks to everyone that reads and comments, in my AARs or anywhere else for that matter. There wouldn't be much need for an award like this without readAARs as I suspect that there wouldn't be too many writAARs.
