Alright, folks, the votes are all in for Cycle 1 and we're ready to announce the winners! If this is your first time winning an Award, post in this thread to redeem your pin! If you win a Decades award, keep an eye on your alerts; you'll be getting a new pin as well! Now then! Down to the winners! Most Adorable Last Year's Winner: Maka Albarn Last Year's Runner-up: Ghost D'awwwwww aren't they just so cuuuute?! These members just seriously, I can't even. They're just like, so adorable it just makes me squeal sometimes! And this isn't just me typing for flavor, lol, this is me, Marushi, I actually totally agree with this one! The Most Adorable member is clearly Maka Albarn, and right behind her is Heart <3 (Sam), both just super kawaii~ ^.^ Most Ambitious Last Year's Winner: Aelin Fireheart Last Year's Runner-up: Krowley In this dog-eat-dog world, only some of us ever make it to the top. KHV has decided that Marushi is the most ambitious, with Krowley clawing his way up the ladder right behind her. Spoiler Most Changed Last Year's Winner: Makaze Last Year's Runner-up: Mish Change: That elusive concept everyone's always reaching for... Especially whenever one of those "post your oldest rep" threads comes around again. KHV's decided Yozora (Rat) made the mark this year, with Cstar coming in second! Most Committed Last Year's Winner: Aelin Fireheart Last Year's Runner-up: libregkd Ugh so you know those people in your life who are like, always saying they'll do something, but then when it needs to be done, it never is? Well you don't have to worry about that with these people! KHV's decided that when it comes down to it, Marushi will always follow through on her promises. You can always trust Aelin to be there, too. Most Creative Last Year's Winner: cstar Last Year's Runner-up: Beep Boop, Captain Arch When it comes to creativity, nobody can come up with the ideas like these members. The creativity is practically tangible, it's so strong. KHV votes Cstar in as Most Creative, with Jiku Neon and Maka Albarn showing their own creative side as well. Most Down to Earth Last Year's Winner: Skyheart Last Year's Runner-up: Maka, Glen There are those who believe themselves to be the end-all. The star. The center of the universe. But not these people! These members don't particularly fancy themselves as living in the clouds, thanks. They'd rather stay here on earth with the rest of us regular folks. Not to brag or anything, but KHV has voted Marushi as Most Down to Earth, with Maka Albarn in second. Most Egotistical Last Year's Winner: Iskander Last Year's Runner-up: Ghost Meanwhile, for the people who do seem to think they're the center of the universe, we had two ties, so they all get a prize! In first place, we have Arch and Amaury, while in second, we have Iskander and the aptly-named Ego Emporium. I mean, it must be hard for people with such huge egos to share the spotlight, but they'll have to get used to it. Most Helpful Last Year's Winner: cstar Last Year's Runner-up: DigitalAtlas If you've got a problem, if no one else can help, and if you realize the A-Team has been retired since the late eighties (except for that one 2010 movie but we don't talk about that) then maybe you can come to these people instead! Looks like Marushi is always willing to lend a hand, if you can put up with lame puns, dad jokes, and references to a super cheesy eighties action series. If not, perhaps Aelin would be a better fit, eh? Most Heroic Last Year's Winner: DigitalAtlas Last Year's Runner-up: Ars Nova Spoiler Everyone needs a hero, a masked man or caped wonder to fly in and save the day before riding off into the sunset. This year, KHV has chosen Marushi as the Hero, with Boy Wonder as the loveable sidekick. XD Most Hypocritical Last Year's Winner: Calxiyn Last Year's Runner-up: Korosu This might be kinda random but does it bug anyone else how many people on social media seem to hate Hippocrates? Like the poor dude doesn't deserve all the hate, y'know? Yeesh. As far as hypocrites, well, KHV's decided Amaury is tops, with Cstar in second. Most Insane Last Year's Winner: Krowley Last Year's Runner-up: Beucefilous If there's a normal path in life that makes perfect sense and is the obvious way to go... These members will not only go the opposite way, but they'll take the time to turn the sign-post around so they can snicker at anyone who falls for it. Did that metaphor make sense? Maybe not. But they would do that and you know it, because they're insane. This year, it looks like Cstar has reached a whole new level of crazy, dragging Aelin down the Path of Nonsense right along with her. Most Inspiring Member Last Year's Winner: Krowley, Heart Last Year's Runner-up: Trigger Whatever you want in life, whatever you dream of, you can achieve it! You're strong, beautiful, smart, and talented, and if you just work hard enough, I know you'll reach the stars! *ahem* Yeah so I guess Marushi lays it on pretty thick with the pep talks, and Maka Albarn and Deathspank (2.8 HD Remix?) also inspire their peers! (So there's actually a member named Deathspank and he was the one linked to the poll soooo I'm just assuming that whoever nommed him meant Deathspank 2.8 HD Remix, a.k.a. Luxord, because the regular Deathspank has apparently been banned since like 2012 or something lol) Most Intelligent Last Year's Winner: Marushi Last Year's Runner-up: Captain Arch The saying goes, if you want to be smart, you have to surround yourself with smart people. Guess these people don't have to worry about it, though. They've got smarts to spare. KHV thinks Arch is pretty smart. Makaze and libregkd, too. Mathematicians, logicians, technicians... Yeah, Most Intelligent definitely had actual candidates this year lol. XD Most Interesting Last Year's Winner: Marushi Last Year's Runner-up: KHGrl15 When these members talk, they tend to catch the room's attention. Maybe the stuff they say is kind of clever, maybe it's funny, maybe it's just plain weird, but it is DEFINITELY interesting. This year, Most Interesting goes to Yozora (Rat) and Cstar and Ars Nova are a pretty fascinating study as well! Most Intimidating Last Year's Winner: Krowley Last Year's Runner-up: Korosu There's just something inherently scary about people sometimes. Not everyone gets it, perceptions vary, but to some, they'd rather not approach these people if they can help it. Namely, libregkd and Makaze. There's just something about them that makes people nervous... Most Knowledgeable about Kingdom Hearts Last Year's Winner: Krowley Last Year's Runner-up: tamale LET'S FACE IT. Being knowledgeable about Kingdom Hearts gets more and more impressive with every new game. What with time travel, dream-worlds, clones, puppets, possessions, memory manipulation, Heartless, Nobodies, Dream-Eaters, Unversed, wars, subterfuge, prophecy, betrayal, and like, three different Kingdom Hearts's floating around, anyone who can keep it all straight at this point is some kinda genius. Well, according to you guys, that title goes once again to Krowley, with tamale being, same as last year, right behind him! Most Knowledgeable about Video Games Last Year's Winner: Jube Last Year's Runner-up: Krowley Moving past the inner circle of Kingdom Hearts, who's the most knowledgeable about video games in general? Who seems to know something about everything anyone ever talks about? Looks like Arch and libregkd have your vote, with Jube coming in second! Most Likely to be a Bot Last Year's Winner: libregkd, Ghost Last Year's Runner-up: mvitkun Spoiler Sometimes there are those people who just... idk, it's like they don't... Well, let's just say sometimes you feel like posting a garbled image and asking them to type out what letters they see. Just in case. This year those people are Amaury, and Swordsman_John. I mean, they're prooobably not robots. I think. >.> Most Likely to be Banned Last Year's Winner: Makaze Last Year's Runner-up: DigitalAtlas Better keep an eye on these people... There's every chance in the world they'll cross a line one day and then BAM! They'll be outta here. Kinda scary that Arch is on staff, but who knows? Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll be a good boy. Jube, on the other hand... ;D Most Villianous Last Year's Winner: Jafar Last Year's Runner-up: Cstar Everyone loves a good villain - and these members are no exception to the rule, with Arch voted in as most villainous and tamale working on his evil laugh for next year. Baddies to the core, they are. A force of pure evil. I mean, they both love dogs, though, so how evil can they truly be? Seriously, heh, how evil can they be? Asking for a friend. Most Likely to be Famous Last Year's Winner: Krowley Last Year's Runner-up: Boy Wonder Some people are destined for stardom - they shine so bright you need sunglasses just to look at 'em. KHV voted Jayn as Most Likely to be Famous, with Sebax and Mish in second place! Most Likely to be on KH-Vids Forever Last Year's Winner: Krowley Last Year's Runner-up: Fearless The joke goes that no one ever really leaves, that we're all stuck here forever and even if we go away for a little while, we'll always come back. I mean, it's just a joke, but these members seem to take it a bit more literally than others. Krowley and Amaury will probably never leave ever, while Marushi can't seem to stay away for too long herself. Most Likely to be on Staff Last Year's Winner: Captain Arch Last Year's Runner-up: Korosu (SO ARCH WAS MOST LIKELY TO BE ON STAFF LAST YEAR, HMMM? INTERESTING) XD Who are your predictions for the future Staff team this year? Unsurprisingly, the candidates are from the RPA (can we talk about a conspiracy? Like, please?) and it looks like we predict CrownMoksha to be most likely to join staff, with Cstar in second place. Most Likely to End up in Prison Last Year's Winner: Moksha, Trigger, Jiku Neon Last Year's Runner-up: Ghost Some people just belong in the slammer. Who knows what crime will land Blaine there? Well, I'm sure a few of you have a few guesses. Arch, though, is a stranger case. I didn't know guitars could even be sent to prison... Most Likely to Never Hit Premium Last Year's Winner: KHGrl15, Ghost, Fearless Last Year's Runner-up: Zelda Ever chasing rainbows, only to find them always out of reach. Behind one more hill, perhaps? Just a little ways down the road? It's right there, but the closer we get, the farther away it seems. LadyAzura (KHGrl15) and Marushi probably aren't going to be catching their rainbows anytime soon, and Ghost doesn't even seem to be trying. Most Likely to be President Last Year's Winner: Boy Wonder Last Year's Runner-up: al215 There are those who are simply born leaders, who care deeply for their communities and long to do whatever they can to serve the people around them, and make the world a little bit better. For this, Plums has been voted most likely to be President, with Boy Wonder and Skyheart also on the ballots. Most Missed Last Year's Winner: Maka Albarn, Ars Nova Last Year's Runner-up: Shubooty Your absence leaves a hole in our collective hearts... You have made Nobodies of us all. Especially Boy Wonder, (even though as he himself pointed out, he's kind of back) and second place goes to Misty, Jayn, Hayabusa, and Fearless. (I feel so bad for Glen being the only person with a nom who didn't get mentioned lol so Glen, don't worry, I miss ya, you crazy Aussie you) <3 Most Nostalgic Last Year's Winner: Krowley Last year's Runner-up: Mish Ahh, the good old days... Or the bad ones. Either way, these members like to look back, to remember how things used to be, and reminisce about times gone by. Sigh... I remember the year I won most nostalgic... Good times, man. Goooood times. This year, the most likely member to take you on a trip down memory lane is Cat~. Sara likes to dream of the days of yore as well. Most Obscure Tastes Last Year's Winner: Amaury Last Year's Runner-up: Cstar, Beucefilous When it comes to Media, these members tend to have more, ah, distinct tastes. Sure, they can probably hold their own in a chat about Star Wars or Fairy Tail or something, but where their heart truly lies is in some random Indie band from like thirty years ago that has a tiny cult following but remains unheard of by most of the world. This year, it seems like Beucefilous has the weirdest tastes, with LadyAzura (KHGrl15) and Cstar's preferences raising a few eyebrows of their own. Most Overrated Last Year's Winner: Ars Nova Last Year's Runner-up: Makaze Everyone praises these people to the skies, everyone's always going on about how great and wonderful and awesome they are! They're like the freaking Golden Trio over here! You're TOTALLY way cooler than them, it's not FAIR, why do THEY always get the spotlight? Whatever. They are so overrated. Arch especially. Like whatever, Texas is dumb. Aelin's just as overrated, too, eh? Most Passionate Last Year's Winner: Maka Albarn Last Year's Runner-up: Mish These members seem to care a little too much sometimes, but it's refreshing to see someone with as much passion for the things they believe in. KHV's voted Heart <3 (Sam) as the Most Passionate this year, with LadyAzura (KHGrl15) right behind her. Most Proactive Last Year's Winner: Skyheart Last Year's Runner-up: Mish You're never going to realize your goals if you just sit around thinking about them instead of actually doing something about it. Because the thing about work? It's work. But sometimes you gotta roll up your sleeves and just get it done, or it just won't ever get done. Who does KHV think is most likely to get down to work and do stuff? Marushi comes in first place this year, with Aelin in second. Most Serious Last Year's Winner: Ghost Last Year's Runner-up: Zimmy You guys... you know it's okay to smile, right? But seriously (GEDDIT?!) These folks are the last people you'd expect to do something silly or goofy. They're just too gosh darn serious for that childish stuff... Apparently. XD This year, libregkd was voted Most Serious, with CrownMoksha taking second place. Most Shocking Moment Last Year's Winner: Toy Story being in KH3 Last Year's Runner-up: Ghost doesn't explain what she's talking about, despite nobody understanding Wait, whaaaa?! Sometimes the most bizarre and inexplicable things happen around this place, I swear. Like Arch joining the staff team? Like what? Only slightly less shocking was when Cat~ and Plums left Staff. Lots of turnover going on this past year. Weird. Most Underrated Last Year's Winner: KHGrl15 Last Year's Runner-up: Makaze Sometimes in life, people deserve more praise and attention than they get. They tend to be easily missed in a crowd, or relegated to the sidelines, not because they don't deserve the spotlight, but just because... they're underrated. This year, KHV has decided LadyAzura (KHGrl15) Oughta have a bit more recognition around here, as should Capt. Jack Sparrow (Roxam.) (Of course, this begs the question, if they won 'Most Underrated,' aren't the REAL Underrated folks the ones on the ballot who didn't win...?) XD Most Verbose Last Year's Winner: Cstar Last Year's Runner-up: Ghost Ohhhh my gooooosh do these people ever stop talking?! Whether they know the biggest words in the dictionary or they just tend to use the smaller ones WAY too much, or if, heaven forbid, BOTH, KHV's decided Krowley is the most talkative, with Deathspank 2.8 HD Remix (Luxord) talking almost as much. ~Ten Years worth of nominations!~ Most Changed Member: Ten years is a long time... It's funny how different things end up being after such a long time together, huh? In many ways, we've all grown up together. We're like a huge extended family, with all the drama to go with it. Who's changed the most in these past ten years? Well, KHV's decided that award goes to Cstar, with Makaze and LadyAzura (KHGrl15) also showing a lot of growth. Most Committed Member: The world is full of false promises and broken trust. But sometimes, amidst the flake-outs and no-shows, you get people who prove they're in it for the long haul, not just for a year, not just for a couple years, but for ten. And we've decided that Krowley is the Most Commited member of the decade, with Marushi in second place. Most Creative Member: You'd think after so many years, these people would have used up all their good ideas by now... But nope! These people are an endless supply of artistic thought and beauty, and they're not afraid to share these concepts with the world! The Most Creative member of the past ten years goes to Cat~, with Jayn and Dinny right behind her! Most Helpful Member: With a family as big as ours, we all have a lot of problems, whether it's something in our past or personal lives, drama with each other, or even struggles within ourselves. The good thing about having such a big family, though, is there's always someone around to help you through it. And the Most Helpful Member this decade goes to Marushi, with Plums also proving time and time again that he's always willing to help. Most Intelligent Member: They might not be rocket scientists... I mean, they might be, though, you never know. Either way, these members left a lasting impression on us as being super, super smart. What?, especially, was voted the Most Intelligent Member of the past ten years, with libregkd taking the silver. Most Intimidating Member: Remember what I said earlier about how some people are just like, scary? Well, Makaze's been in the business of scaring people for ten years, what with his early reputation as a debater to his current one as the scariest Mafioso on the forum, he won this award with ease, with second place going to libregkd. Most Inspiring Member: There's always one in every family, the big sis or big bro we all can look up to, who inspire us to live our lives to the fullest and go after our dreams. KHV's decided that Jayn is the most inspiring member of the decade, with Cat~ right behind her! Thanks, you guys, for leading us all towards our goals! Most Passionate Member: When it comes down to passion, there are few who can match the legend left behind by Misty, with one of the few being Mike. Their love and dedication to the things they cared about is definitely something to be celebrated, and we can all be thankful we got to be a part of their story! Most Shocking Moment: A lot of insane stuff has happened to us over the past ten years. We always manage to pull through together, but some moments seem to have scarred us emotionally. The Purge has left us all a bit jumpy to this day, though we're also all still a bit dazed from Misty retiring.
