Honorable Mentions

So this is how democracy dies
Calanon, for largest margin of victory (Most Dramatic - Baaaaabies)

Revenge Kill
Sliucha Sindosa, for winning in a category she lost out by one vote last year (Best Female PC)

Sharpening This Axe
Grim, for losing Most Helpful three years in a row to the same person

The system is broken
Éclair Mainesthai, the only PC with red rep, yet garnered exactly 1 vote (PC that has done the most evil)

I came in like a wrecking ball
Talindra, for dominating a category which has remained relatively static over the years (best CIR)

HA! No need to publicly shame me for voting for myself because I wasn't nominated! HA! Take that! Think you're so smart now huh? That's right. Silver lining and such.

I'm going to go cry in a corner now.
