    Thanks again, everybody, for the kind words! I'd like to pass along the award now as I'll be pretty busy tomorrow. I'd like to present Selzro with the next Character Writer of the Week Award for the absolutelySubcontinental Subtleties! He has a lot of great characters, and it's hard to choose one specifically, but my favorite so far is Dalip.

    Thank you! This is an honour, and I'm sure that if Ranjit and Sher Singh were still with us, they'd be as pleased as Dalip is undoubtedly feeling now.

    A week has passed, and it's time to pass the torch to a new best character writer of the week. I choose robou for the character of Pedro in Sons of Santiago. Although the AAR is still in its first posts, robou has already given us a great display of character depth and emotion, which promises much for the rest of the story.

    Many thanks everyone! It is a real honour to win this for a third time, and for a character and AAR that are both still in their infancy (though hopefully my woeful lack of updates will improve now!). As for a the next winner, well there could only really be one choice for me. Best character writer of the week has to go to Director for Donneval Makhearne in his ever superb A Special Providence. Congratulations D.!

    A Special Providence is truly rich in remarkable characters: the main protagonists are flawed (Makhearne has a ruthless streak, Ronsend is more idealistic, but sometimes gets in trouble because he acts before he thinks), the main antagonists (Mme. Frost, Temic Messoune) are reprehensible, but still manage to entertain, and, at rare times, even strike a sympathetic chord with us. And the supporting cast, whether they be completely fictional or based on historic characters, sparkle with life. Just look at Dr. Fielding (a Sherlock-Holmes-like British sleuth), or Theodore Roosevelt (who, yes, ends up as US president, although his path the the presidency is quite different from the one we're familiar with).

    A truly worthy winner. Congratulations, D!
