Hey kids! I know you may have been expecting our resident Babyblue posting these, but since Uncle RvR is giving her "the talk" (she's nearing womanhood), Jayn, Enzy, Chev and I are bringing you your winners of the 2012 User Awards! As Jayn had posted the winners of Cycle One, it's time to give a round of applause to the winners of Cycle 2, the Artistic Awards! Spoiler: Visual Arts Best Photographer Last Year's Winner: Catch the Rain Last Year's Runner-up: DPWolf With a camera in hand, these peeps scour the world for some beautiful shots. You think Jade has got some top notch beauts, but DPWolf got some dazzlers herself. Best Traditional Artist Last Year's Winner: T A F F Y シ Last Year's Runner-up: DPWolf Although compoopers and Photoshop are growing in popularity, these talented folk still show what's up with their pen and paper. KHV thinks Dinny is the artist every man deserves, but Rat showin' his goods to the world too. Best Graphic Artist Last Year's Winner: Jayn Last Year's Runner-up: Misty You gawk at their tags and hunt them down to the doors of their shop to make some just for you! This year, you're digging the style of Axis, but Jayn's not too shabby herself. Spoiler: Writing Best Fanfiction Last Year's Winner: Blood of the Cascade Last Year's Runner-up: The Flurry - Axel's Story With heads spinning after seeing some fantastic film, reading an entralling book, or even just hearing rumors from friends, the youngins of the web choose to expand upon worlds created by others and put their own spin on things. This year, KHV believes Guardian Soul and What's Disconnect takes the prize! Misty's Infra isn't too far off canon either! Best KH-Vids Fanfiction Last Year's Winner: N/A Last Year's Runner-up: N/A A new award implemented this year. Always wondered what Kitty as Overlord Admin Supreme would be like? These stories make such nightmares dreams possible! KHV believes Plums' KHV: Cascadia to be an interesting what-if, but Chevalier's KHV: Carnival has got it going on too. Best Original Story Last Year's Winner: N/A Last Year's Runner-up: N/A If fanfictions aren't your forte, there's still people out there that put out some very decent originals. You feel Jiku Neon's Darunter is one for the books, but Clawtooth's Cargo treads nicely along the river too. Best Overall Writer Last Year's Winner: Catch the Rain Last Year's Runner-up: Jayn Being a writer isn't all it's cracked up to be. It's arduous work to get your stuff up to what you think is par, but the pay-off is great. This year, you believe Sforzato, Saxima and Plums are all some top notch writers. Best Poet Last Year's Winner: Catch the Rain, TheMagicalMisterMistoffelees Last Year's Runner-up: SkyCat These people got the rhyme, though they words sublime, they beats slicka' than fine. According to KHV, Sumi knows how to drop it like its hot, but Plums has some pretty sick beats too. Most Improved Writer Last Year's Winner: Ploo-Hems Last Year's Runner-up: Night171 These people evolve with each letter they type: that's how a story works. Those words will leave a hole in the center of the universe: the drafts left behind and the revisions that will follow, both blend together to create a piece better than it's predecessors! And that is true improvement, that is a true writer! According to KHV,Clawtooth and Guardian Soul are the ones that CREATE THE HEAVENS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Spoiler: Video Editing Best Video Editor Last Year's Winner: Ace Phoenix, turntechGodhead Last Year's Runner-up: jojo13 You see them in the Video Portal and love their MEP parts! These members are truly video savvy, and know how to hook you within 2-3 minutes tops. KHV believes Stardust is the biggest catch here, andSacredlith has got a steady following too. Most Improved Video Editor Last Year's Winner: N/A Last Year's Runner-up: N/A Another new addition to our line up! As there was only one nominee, there was no poll for this one. However, you should still give ~Cat a hearty cheer. Spoiler: Roleplay Awards Best Roleplay Last Year's Winner: Pride of the Organization, The Ultimate Crossover RP, Culprit Last Year's Runner-up: Grimm Academy These roleplays tend to get you hooked. In fact, some of you may not have even left to see me write this! In any case, KHV feels Crossover Cove is where the party's at, but The STRANGE andWelcome to the Velvet Room are pretty bangin' too. Best Roleplay Concept/Story Last Year's Winner: The Ultimate Crossover RP Last Year's Runner-up: Forgotten Insanity These roleplays have a spark as far as they eye can see. If they were money, spdude would be rollin' all throughout the threads. The ballots are in, and Crossover Cove captures the most hearts, but Ascension itself is also quite lovely. Best Roleplay Graphics Last Year's Winner: Synchronicity Last Year's Runner-up: Final Fantasy XIII: Slaves of Fate These roleplays are puckered up and ready to hit the town tonight! KHV believes Garden of Rose: The 9th Eve is a real eye catcher, but The Hunger Games is quite radiant too. Best Roleplayer Last Year's Winner: Jayn Last Year's Runner-up: Twilight_Nobody13 One minute they're Roxas, the next minute they're Optimus Prime leading a valiant charge against Megatron. KHV believes Jayn is a master of character disaster, but Nagisa Adelheid (DarkTraitor) has a few tricks up his sleeve too. Biggest Godmodder Last Year's Winner: Graxe Last Year's Runner-up: Daxma, Riku1186, Ansem59, Protector 212, hyuge-of-twilight These people have got more loopholes up their sleeve than Nomura, and aren't afraid to use them. KHV thinksBushy Brow is a real mastermind in the arena, but starseeker3 is not far behind. Fastest Roleplay Responder Last Year's Winner: terminallyCapricious Last Year's Runner-up: Twilight_Nobody13 You see them rollin' in a thread and post an essay before you can bat an eye. Aerith G. is a real speed demon in the reply relay, but don't underestimate Midnight Star either. Most Fun Roleplayer Last Year's Winner: N/A Last Year's Runner-up: N/A Another new category this year! These people put a smile on your face every time you walk in (and in some cases, even offer to dance with you!). KHV believes Droid is a bucket of fun in the sun, but Midnight Staris pretty fun loving too. Most Improved Roleplayer Last Year's Winner: terminallyCapricious Last Year's Runner-up: Twilight_Nobody13 This hand of their glows with an awesome power! It's burning grip tells them to defeat their limits and evolve even further! TAKE THIS: their love, their dedication, and all of their effort! Midnight Star, followed by Hero of Time, GO GO GO GOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Most Likely to Quit a Roleplay Last Year's Winner: Fayt-Harkwind Last Year's Runner-up: Dr. Wigglz You see them join, then they fall to the haysides. KHV believes Machina is too busy saving the world with Rem to stay for RPs, but VentusPSPAqua, Korosu and starseeker3 are running around too. And that concludes Cycle Two! Congrats to all participants, and hope to see you around next year!
