Congrats Atlantic Friend!
I knew killing characters would pay off one day!
So, aw, shucks, just tryin' to do my job here, and, er...ah, yes : I'll kill MORE characters in the future I promise, ayup.
After a little exploration of the Narrative Provinces of AARland, and given my personal bias for the 20th century and all its drama, I think the Character Writer award should go to someone whose main chawactew we gwudingly hail as a statesman for all seasons :
Le Jones, for the King's First Minister (and for turning Lowd Halifax into a new Erich von Stroheim, the man we love to hate)
Congratulations, Le Jones
My spambot broke, now I have to write everything myself.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and go well with ketchup.
Workers of the world, igni-* err... unite!
Congwatulations, Le Jones! I dawe say this is a supewb and well desewved choice indeed. Yes.
