Fifth Annual Halo Fanon Wikia Awards 2012
December 1st, 2012 — December 28th, 2012

Welcome to the Fifth Annual Halo Fanon Wikia Awards for 2012. We are honoured by your attendance to this annual community awards election and celebration, the fifth, and hopefully, not the last of its kind. This project is coordinated by the Halo Fanon Wiki Administration, and we thank the Star Wars Fanon Wiki for donating the concept of this annual community ritual to us.

We look forward to your participation in this community-wide celebration, and hope that you will all participate! Now, read the regulations, nominate your favourite articles, and vote!

New Rules and Categories

As you may know, there have been some new categories added this year. They have been listed in the sections below, but have also been placed here to save users the trouble of looking for them if they are already familiar with the old categories.

  1. An previous award winner is now permitted to win in a separate year if and only if it has evidently been improved upon drastically since then. Since there is no definite standard of "improved drastically", the eligibility of previous winners is left to the discretion of the award host. As a final note, an article may win in the same category for a maximum of three years in total. This does not mean that the article can only win three awards; for example, if an article can be nominated for the Best Canon Expansion category, along with its own category, and wins in the top three awards of the year, and does so for three separate years, the article in question can theoretically win nine awards in total (this is however highly unlikely).
  2. If an article is the only nomination in its category and receives fewer than five votes, it will be combined with another similar category after the voting process. This ensures that an article of mediocre quality does not win by default, if it happens to have no competition. However, if a great show of support is given to the article to indicate that it is deserving of the award, it will still be given even if there are no other nominations.
  3. The Breakthrough User of the Year award is for users who have contributed to Halo Fanon in commendable ways as a drastic change. This applies to outstanding new users as well as older users who have been previously struggling to find their place on the wiki. This award cannot be won by recipients of the Writer of the Year award. Furthermore, users cannot be nominated for this category while being nominated for Best Writer. This award is meant to encourage hard-working new users, or ones that have been living in the shadow of others, to display their true potential, and is not recommended for seasoned users to try out for.
  4. Nominees for the Most Unique Concept category is now allowed to be nominated in another category, where applicable. However, this is not mandatory since some nominees may not fall under any of the other categories.
  5. The Best Canon Expansion of the Year category is pretty self-explanatory; any article with the same or similar name as an article found on Halopedia and has been expanded upon vastly to be deemed the author's own work. As there is more original material to work with, an article under this category requires 18,000 bytes to be nominated for the award. On the upside though, any Canon Expansion nominee is permitted to be also nominated for another suitable category.

Regulations

  1. Nominations and voting begin at 12:00 AM midnight GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) on December 1st, 2012 and will conclude promptly at 12:00 AM midnight GMT on December 28th, 2012, at the time of the New Year! Exceptions to this are listed below. Final winners will be announced and receive their awards on December 29th, 2012!
  2. Voting Qualifications: Users eligible to nominate and vote must have been users for at least four weeks and have sixty or more mainspace edits in order to vote. Because of the style of this celebration, sockpuppets and sock masters are not invited, and will be promptly banned from the Wiki and barred from future voting.
  3. Nominations:
    1. You may only nominate articles for a category so long as it expressly fits the definition of each category. Articles that are not eligible for a category will be removed by the administration. You may request a clarification about the definition of any category from Sonasaurus. You may not nominate an article for more than one category, with the exception of Best Canon Expansion and Most Unique Concept. Articles that are not eligible for nomination will be removed without any notice if they are found to have "content issues" "Unrealistic", "Non-Canon Friendly", etc
    2. You may nominate an unlimited number of articles written by any number of other authors for any number of categories. However, you are restricted to nominating only one of your articles for only one category for the whole election, and you cannot vote for your own article for the placement awards. This is to promote professional sportsmanship. For categories pertaining to users ("Best Writer of the Year", "Breakthrough User of the Year"), you may not nominate yourself. You may only nominate yourself for one article in the entire election, and this does not pertain to self-nominating yourself as a user.
    3. Articles must be at least 9,000 bytes long, and novels must be at least 72,000 bytes long. Exceptions to this are the canon expansion category, which must be at least 18,000 bytes long, the most unique concept category, which has no length requirement, and the short fiction category, which do not have a specific minimum length requirement (however, it does has a maximum length limit of 27,000 bytes). You can check the length of a wiki page by going into its edit history and checking the number of bytes on the latest revision, between the "contribs" and "undo" links.
    4. "Recycled" articles will not be accepted into the nomination process. An article that has received minor or no edits for the duration of the year is not eligible for the event. Every article's edit history will be checked when nominated, and will remain valid for nomination only if it has received moderate to major changes/improvements throughout the year.
    5. You must nominate articles according to the proper format (listed below). Fill out all the fields when submitting a nomination, and post the completed nomination form underneath the category that you're nominating the article in question for.
    6. Perceived breaches of good conduct and professional sportsmanship will be prosecuted by the administration to maintain the dignity of this voting system.
    7. The author of an article may withdraw his or her own article from a nomination at any time.
    8. Eligible categories are decided in advance by the administration.
    9. Winning articles of the previous annual awards be nominated only if it's been improved upon drastically after receiving a previous award, for a maximum of three awards in separate years. This applies only to the articles, not the authors of the articles, who may only win the Best Writer or Breakthrough User award once. This does not mean that the article can only win three awards; for example, if an article can be nominated for the Best Canon Expansion category, along with its own category, and wins in the top three awards of the year, and does so for three separate years, the article in question can theoretically win nine awards in total (this is however highly unlikely).
  4. You are always allowed to contest in a category even if you won an article in that same category before with a different article.
  5. Voting:
    1. Eligible users may vote for a maximum of two articles in a given category, and may vote for up to two articles for placement awards. You may vote for only one of your own articles for the entire election, no matter how many articles you have in how many categories. You may not vote for yourself under a user-related category.
    2. Please sign your vote with a non-bubble text signature to verify your identity.
    3. You cannot vote for one of your own articles for Best Articles of the Year.
    4. You do not have to vote for an article you nominated.
    5. The voting process has two stages: categorical and placement. In the categorical vote, users will have from 12:00 AM GMT, December 1st, 2012 to 12:00 AM GMT, December 20th, 2012 to vote. Articles will be voted upon according to category, and the one article with the most votes from each category will be confirmed as the winner of that category and will be pitted against the other winners of the other categories (excluding collaboration, novel, short fiction, writer, and breakthrough user). The placement vote will begin at 12:00 AM GMT, December 20th, 2012 to 12:00 AM GMT and end on December 28th, 2012. All categorical and placement awards will be given on December 29th, 2012.
    6. Any categories with ties by 12:00 AM GMT on December 19th, 2012 (24 hours before the end of the categorical vote) will be remitted from public voting and will enter private administrative ballot to decide ties. The results of the ballot will be announced afterwards. All administrators with a registered email will have twenty-four hours to decide ties.
    7. Any articles with ties by 12:00 AM GMT on December 27th, 2012 (24 hours before the end of the placement vote) will be remitted from public voting and will enter private administrative ballot to decide ties. The results of the ballot will be announced afterwards. All administrators with a registered email will have twenty-four hours to decide ties.
  6. Winning:
    1. The article for the most votes in a given category will be formally acknowledged as the winner for the category, and the article and its author will be commended by an official award granted by the administration approximately by December 29th, 2012 and the end of the ceremony. Three winners from the placement vote will also be given their placement awards at the same time.
    2. In the event of a tie, a tiebreaker will be performed, and the winner will be decided by private administrative ballot. The ballot's content will be disclosed at the end of the ceremony.
    3. If an article is the only nomination in its category and receives fewer than five votes, it will be combined with another similar category after the voting process to avoid "winning by default", and votes will be counted accordingly.
  7. Questions: Please address Sonasaurus if you have any questions whatsoever.

Nominations and Voting

Annual Award Best Spartan Best SPARTAN of the Year

Vinh-030 (Ahalosniper)

Voting (6)
  1. One of the best Spartan articles I've seen this year, with many tie-ins to the canon as well as Ahalosniper's own creative ideas. The detail placed into the article is a testament to his efforts. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. ^ Ajax 013 (talk) 09:41, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
  3. As per above. (/)___(\) [/\Otaku of Halo Fanon/\]
  4. While the other articles are amazing, I personally think this is a wonder full expansion to canon. The fact you've taken a character with no backstory and turned it into a long and expansive page is amazing.--I am aim to please, and I don't miss, if I do you won't live long enough to notice (talk) 04:25, December 8, 2012 (UTC)
  5. SPARTAN-091[Bureau]Reach - Captain Grade 3[Talk] 03:18, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
  6. I count this article as a "reference" for making some of my own Spartan articles, because it's very well-composed and blends canon information with original content without leaving any weak links or glaring contradictions. In my opinion, it deserves this award. ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.

Marco-025 (Brodie-001)

Voting (4)
  1. An article I've been working hard on to be the best it could be since I first joined this site, I feel it's been improved exponentially over the years after a great deal of work. -Brodie-001
  2. It took me forever to read this article all the way through, but it was definitely worth the time it took. Marco-025 is easily one of the very best SPARTAN characters on this wiki. DemonsofHope »Anonymous ONI agent« [COMMS] [SERVICE RECORD]
  3. Honestly, I've come very close to nominating this for GA several times, but bothersome proofreading errors held me back. But the article's come a long way since I last read it, and has always been an example of Brodie's dedication. I'd just suggest one more reading over. That Damn Sniper 00:55, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
  4. Definitely a long read, but a well formatted one, and one that Brodie's put a lot of hard work into. --Am I a Lion, or a Lamb? Or a Boy? Saint or Sinner? The Lost Books 21:31, December 14, 2012 (UTC)

Daisy-023 (Ladylaconia)

Voting (3)
  1. Although Ell's activity this year has been irregular, this was one of the articles she's worked on rather well. I don't think anything more needs to be said, since Ell's writing is as good as ever if not better than her other work. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. This is, as always, a very competitive category, and this time around there are several worthy contenders for the title. While I'm torn between another vote for Ell and one for a less-recognized user, I can't deny my admiration for this article. It displays both Ell's customary mastery of storytelling and her enviable ability to write just the right amount of text to get her story across. Coupled with some excellent images and you have an undeniably impressive article. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Despite her constant bouts of inactivity, I'd definitely say this is one of the best articles on the the sight. While Ell's no stranger to writing, it's still a masterfully written piece of work. - Le Stel

Alex-007 (LoyalHaloFan)

Voting (1)
  1. My first attempt at making a Spartan character on Halo Fanon. My writing quality isn't the best and I haven't been as active as I used to be in my first year on this site, but I thought that this article is possibly one of my best. -LoyalHaloFan

Bailey-132 (Anonymous ONI agent)

Voting (2)
  1. I feel that this article has gone through quite a bit of improvment and additions this year. I feel that it's gone rather unnoticed this year. It's just one of those articles I feel really deserves this honor.--I am aim to please, and I don't miss, if I do you won't live long enough to notice (talk) 00:36, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
  2. Probably the best of the nominated SPARTAN articles ~Hyper Zergling 08:14, December 2, 2012 (UTC)

Annual Award Best UNSC Personnel Best UNSC Personnel of the Year

Pete Marcus Stacker (Ahalosniper)

Voting (7)
  1. Ahalosniper has paid a good tribute to one of Halo's most recurring yet under-appreciated characters with this article. Although the written content is focused mostly on Stacker's involvement in the Human-Covenant War, I have no doubt that Ahalosniper will do an equally good job if not better job on his biography following it. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. Sniper has proven his dedication to the Halo series in many ways. As Sona stated above, Sniper is known for his appreciation for the unappreciated. — Nanosoldier
  3. ^ Ajax 013 (talk) 09:56, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
  4. Yet another great expansion made by the author here. Stacker is one of my favourite, if rather minor, characters in the Haloverse, and I loved the backstory and expansion you've given him here, as well as developing his personality greatly. Bravo. -Brodie-001
  5. As per above. (/)___(\) [/\Otaku of Halo Fanon/\]
  6. Stacker never really penetrated my personal fandom despite his beloved side-character status, which somehow made me enjoy this article even more. The quotes sound as if they could be coming directly from the games and the tie-in with the Spartan program was an unexpected but interesting insertion. In spite of the rather substantial leap of faith required by the Onyx portion of the story, the narrative flows well and delivers a solid character. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  7. It's always nice to see a side-character get an expansion, is it not? Stacker was one of my favorite characters ever since joining the Halo Fandom, and it's nice to a canon element turned into a fanon one. Has my vote, considering Sniper's diligence towards the article and the character as a whole. - Stel

Richard Mack Sr. (Brodie-001)

Voting (1)
  1. A long and well-detailed biography through Mack's childhood, the ORION Project's operational life, and Sigma's training shows the same dedication here that Brodie has on Marco-025's article, and it's not even finished yet. It's an article that's deserving of a nomination at the very least. And the fact that it's R. Lee Ermey just makes me smile. That Damn Sniper 04:06, December 1, 2012 (UTC)

Rebeka Juhász (Ladylaconia)

Voting (8)
  1. Another one of Ell's remarkable works this year. She takes more ambitious measures with Rebeka's character and her involvement with the UNSC, as well as what she does in and out of the Spartan program is creative and unique. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. Knowing how much of herself Ell has put into her, I most definitely know Beka deserves this award. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 08:38, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
  3. ^ Ajax 013 (talk) 10:04, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
  4. This has been one of my favorite articles of the year. A very memorable piece of work. DemonsofHope »Anonymous ONI agent« [COMMS] [SERVICE RECORD]
  5. Ellen Page + great writing = SPARTAN-091[Bureau]Reach - Captain Grade 3[Talk] 03:49, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
  6. Although I was initially tempted to vote for Stacker, and I can't deny the work put into it, I ultimately felt that Ell's piece was the better choice. An original and fresh concept, it leaped out to me, and I was surprised that it could be so interesting with so little written. --Am I a Lion, or a Lamb? Or a Boy? Saint or Sinner? The Lost Books 21:38, December 14, 2012 (UTC)
  7. Not sure whether voting out of hubris or genuine opinion, but I guess it doesn't really matter - I'm quite fond of this character whose article I have revised on multiple occasions, and as she is a pivotal character for my existing and upcoming fanon, I feel like supporting her. (And actually quite shocked that she got any attention at all in the first place!) ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.
  8. I think the ideas and concepts behind this article are unique that haven't been seen on this wiki before. I don't think I'll see a concept this unique in a while.--I am aim to please, and I don't miss, if I do you won't live long enough to notice (talk) 23:57, December 19, 2012 (UTC)

Annual Award Best Covenant Character Best Covenant Character of the Year

Shinsu 'Refum (Actene)

Voting (7)
  1. Shinsu is an incredible character, especially considering he's a villain, when in the Halo universe we sometimes see antagonists with no more depth than a Grunt in the games. Sworn enemy of the 'Vadams, his story directly crosses paths with a couple notable fanon members and allies of the clan, and his relation to Halo 2's heretic realistically drives him against them. This year has seen most of the article's content come into existence and the character play a prominent role in both Avenger's Quest and Indelible Past, and it's not over for him yet. That Damn Sniper 01:23, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
  2. Shinsu successfully managed to scrape the very canon of Halo without a single scratch. The most remarkable thing about this article personally is that it embodies both the culture of the Sangeili and the subject character on realistic terms. Shinsu can perfectly master the archetype of a tragic villain. — Nanosoldier
  3. It definitely goes without saying that this is one of the best Sangheili articles on Halo Fanon, period. Actene has gone out of his way to really make Shinsu a fascinating and notorious character that stands as a key component to AAO's plot. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  4. Covenant characters have a habit of falling into 2 dimensional characterisations and tropes, but Actene deftly avoids many of these to make a character that feels genuine, something harder than usual in regards to Covenant characters. Ajax 013 (talk) 09:56, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
  5. There's not much I can say here that has already been said, really. An intriguing and well-written character, with an atypical personality that really breaks the mold from many other 'standard' Sangheili articles that you see about. Very nicely done. -Brodie-001
  6. As per above. (/)___(\) [/\Otaku of Halo Fanon/\]
  7. As per .etc. Considering I'm a connoisseur of Sangheili characters, this article has had effort poured into it as much as Actene's other articles. - Stel

Annual Award Best AI Best AI Character of the Year

Deep Winter (Ahalosniper)

Voting (3)
  1. A very well-written and detailed article, easily one of the best histories I've read for an AI, in addition to being another fantastic canon expansion of what was a relatively unknown character in the Haloverse. As such, I think it's well deserving of the award. -Brodie-001
  2. Slightly shorter than Dotto's article, but it feels more...concise. Also, not a bad canon expansion character. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  3. I like the detail and well-done holographic images here. It's nice. SPARTAN-091[Bureau]Reach - Captain Grade 3[Talk] 19:54, December 15, 2012 (UTC)

Dotto (Nanosoldier)

Voting (1)
  1. AIs this year came down to four wonderful candidates in my mind. Each of them has intriguing origin stories, but for the most part, that's all they are so far, and haven't been expanded very far by the authors. Dotto is the exception. Before and after the expansion of Auntie Dot's part in Halo: Reach is original content with introduction and personality sections that round out the article. Well done. That Damn Sniper 01:06, December 1, 2012 (UTC)

Cortana (Tuckerscreator) (Tuckerscreator)

Voting (5)
  1. While not as comprehensive as other articles in this category, I love everything about this article, and its a genuine pleasure to read. Ajax 013 (talk) 09:35, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
  2. I love the unique and creative manner in which this article was written. When I first read it, I thought it had been vandalized, until I realized that it was supposed to look like Cortana herself altered the page. DemonsofHope »Anonymous ONI agent« [COMMS] [SERVICE RECORD]
  3. As per above. (/)___(\) [/\Otaku of Halo Fanon/\]
  4. The wit and creativity inherent in this article makes it a shoe-in for the award. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  5. The thing I like most about this article is the rampancy. 'Nuff said. ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.

Annual Award Best Unaffiliated Character Best Unaffiliated Character of the Year

David Kahn (Actene)

Voting (7)
  1. One of Actene's oldest articles that never got its chance to shine until now. This year I feel that he really did a spectacular job in revamping the article as well as getting Kahn heavily involved in AAO's stories and characters. Definitely my first choice for this category. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. What started out as simply a concept for a Boba Fett-esque Halo character has taken on a life and legend of its own. That Damn Sniper 02:09, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
  3. This is a type of character that one doesn't typically expect to see in a story like Halo, and the fact that Actene can make it work so well is yet another testament to his impeccable writing abilities. DemonsofHope »Anonymous ONI agent« [COMMS] [SERVICE RECORD]
  4. This is a character that I've always quite liked, for various reasons ranging from his backstory, the sheer detail put in, and the general magnificent bastardry that Kahn seems to exude. It's a great character, and a very well written one at that. This article definitely deserves the award. -Brodie-001
  5. I shall vote for you as you voted for me, as you voted for her. Awarding your article for all eternity, in the center of a mad wiki. Honored and loved... honored and loved... KHAAAANNN!!! KHAAAANNN!!! Tuckerscreator(stalk) 07:13, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
  6. As per above. (/)___(\) [/\Otaku of Halo Fanon/\]
  7. Despite Tucker beating me to uttering "KHAAAAAN!" I'm still voting this guy. Beautifully structured, masterfully written and polished to a mirror shine over time. A highly unexplored concept, and Actene broke new ground on this site by making something so. - Stel

Annual Award Best Starship Best Starship of the Year

Bow-class corvette (Athena32)

Voting (5)

  1. As per rule 3.9, I'm nominating Ajax's MJOLNIR Mk. VII article since it has received substantial improvement and expansion ever since it earned its previous technology award in 2009. While the overall quality of this article is undeniable, I would have nominated this all the same even if it included only the new content Ajax has added this year. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. I was skeptical at first, but this article really has gone through major renovation.

I've actually gone through each revision the author has made this year, and I've seen a lot of instances where the article's contents were improved, sometimes with entire paragraphs being rewritten.

Voting (8)
  1. A very unique article, Ladylaconia and Tucker managed to present us with an interesting take on what the Spartans might would have done in the after-war era, forming their own little nation community to raise up new generations of Spartans. Very unique. Also slightly disturbing and frightening if you see the opinions in the quotes, but still very interesting and well written. --Am I a Lion, or a Lamb? Or a Boy? Saint or Sinner? The Lost Books 19:38, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
  2. Aye. I know a few people who've had similar ideas, a 'Sparta' for our Spartans, but this is the first one to pull off the concept realistically . . . or reasonably, I used that word last time, and people laughed for some reason. Anyway, the Enclave's been able to bring up a few issues about potential problems with the governance of augmented humans, ideas I want to look into a bit myself and hope to see more of from Ladylaconia soon. That Damn Sniper 22:29, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
  3. This one wins my vote for the sheer audacity of the concept. If you told me about a post-war nation made up entirely of Spartans, I'd laugh in your face and reach for the NCF button. But this article somehow makes the whole thing work somehow. Not only does it convey relevant information, like anything Ell works on it manages to do in just the right amount of text as well. It's a unique concept that I hope to see more of in the future. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  4. It's my favorite concept to work on, with so much potential. Day after day the Lady and I brainstorm on this to craft it better every time. Tuckerscreator(stalk) 03:32, December 6, 2012 (UTC)
  5. I'll admit, I've had a similar article idea in the past, but discarded it because I thought it'd be unrealistic. This proves me wrong.

Tyraxus Tribe (Ajax 013)

  1. Taking a rather unique approach, the article gives detail on not only the history, but customs and traditions of a Jiralhanae pack. Ideas from elsewhere in Necros are incorporated, from Jiralhanae weapons to applications of Slavery in the 26th and 27th Centuries. The way assets and notable individuals within the group are explained reminds me a lot of a roleplaying game's campaign setting, and there's plenty of setup for stories within itself, let alone how it could effect the Necros timeline beyond itself. A fantastic Covenant-species organization. That Damn Sniper 00:59, December 1, 2012 (UTC)

The path that's ahead of him might be one that would discourage many people, but hopefully one of his articles receiving a very well-deserved award in the HFWAs so soon after his arrival on this wiki will show him that we respect him and want him to stick around, and that we'd be more than happy to help him along on that path ahead of him so long as he asks nicely and is willing to listen.

RP:Red vs Blue: Revolution (Sonasaurus)

Voting (6)
  1. While it might come off as a strange thing to nominate, allow me to say that a collaboration is supposed to, more than anything else, involve members of the community. And the shenanigans that sprang up on the IRC did that with astounding success. After the first or second episode, people were asking daily when the next was going to be because they were excited to take part. I think the originators more than anyone else were surprised when a genuine plot started to develop, and all involved have had a hand in shaping how the action went, though ultimately Sona acts as the arbitrator of realism and continuity, a DM of sorts. You can find Actene's video for Red vs. Blue: Revolution on Youtube, and I have to agree with him in saying it's one of the best times I've had with the community. That Damn Sniper 01:40, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
  2. After all of the time and effort that went into making the RvB Shenanigans what it has come to be, I feel that it would be a shame for all involved in it to not see our work receive some sort of recognition in these awards. I find it hard to think of a collaborative project in my time on Halo Fanon that is more unique and creative than the RvB Shenanigans, and to me it is a testament to how great the community here can be.

  3. I'm inclined to agree with the others on this. Not only are the Shenanigans a wonderful community collaboration, it's been something that just about everyone involved has, and probably still, looks forward to on the IRC.

Halo: Indelible Past (Actene)

Voting (3)
  1. After starting to read towards the tail-end of Avenger's Quest, I was hooked on the story of the first SPARTAN traitor. Actene shows us characters who have different motivations than those we're used to, provides excellent descriptions and experiences in the settings visited, and brings its expansive cast together with logical reasons for them to cross paths that pay off with fights or bargains that excite or horrify us by their nature. Though thrown in the middle of larger conflicts, Simon's personal story is at the center of it, with the occasional flashback reminding us of how he got here and informing us a bit of why he does what he does. Seeing a number of other famous/infamous characters come into play is gratifying, from Shinsu's interaction with the Path Walkers to Autel and Fira reacting to the attacks of Redmond Venter, and particularly Yuri Rosch's justifications for hunting the rogue Spartan stick in my mind, because in many ways he's right. There's a reason Simon-G294 won the first Annual Award for Best SPARTAN, and his story shines here like a diamond in the rough. That Damn Sniper 02:24, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
  2. As with its precursor, Avenger's Quest, this story changed a lot as I wrote it and I wish that I'd taken more time to make sure the first half was a bit more coherent and related to the second half. That being said, I consider this my best finished work particularly for the way it shows my flagship character, Simon-G294, at his best and worst, an achievement that I consider worth every minute I put into writing it.

Duties and Desires: Part 2 (Sonasaurus)

Voting (6)
  1. This is a hard nomination for me to make, seeing as I consider Indelible Past to be my best completed work to date. That being said, I know for a fact that just as much work, if not more, went into writing Duties and Desires. Not only does it reveal an expansive backstory into Sona's characters, it tackles the pre-HCW era, which tends to be particularly hard to cover given the lack of source material to look to for help and inspiration. Having looked over both stories, I have to say that I can't decide which is the better novel. My vote will go to both, and I hope this nomination will encourage more people in the community to read both and decide for themselves as they vote. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  2. After reading through this story recently, I found it to be very well-written and engaging, as well as a fantastic backstory for several characters, Felix in particular. The characters are well-developed and the action is sufficiently entertaining throughout. The ties with the ORION project, as several of it's canon members, developing on some of the lesser-known ones, was a great addition too. As such, being one of the best stories I've read this year, I think it's very much deserving of the award. -Brodie-001

  1. A short but gratifying story that includes several subtle tie-ins to both AAO and one of my other...projects. The change in character shown by the protagonist is very believable and represents well the consequences of war; although the sacrifice made that the story is titled after is undoubtedly only one of many, it feels no less emotional than anyone in the protagonist's position.

That Damn Sniper 00:44, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
  2. It's always nice to see the perspectives of other characters in Halo, especially ones that I feel weren't given enough detail in the books, in spite of their status. This really goes in-depth with the character's thoughts regarding their abduction and initial introduction into the program, something that I feel was never adequately explored in the book. Oh, and the reference in the letter at the end was a nice touch. -Brodie-001

This year in particular, I feel that he's worked harder than ever to make a name for himself on the wiki, and I think it's about time he was appreciated for it. Consider this nomination my token of approval. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs
  2. His work in short fiction has really breathed more life into the wiki's story scene in recent months. I hope that he remains as active in the future as he has been this past year. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Brodie has brought out some great work since joining, and although I can't be as familiar with all of it as I would like to be, I think he deserves kudos for breakthrough writer. Ajax 013 (talk) 09:56, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
  4. His work on Stories from the Sigmaverse and Marco-025 has been redoubled this year, in addition to new articles like Layla-B101. I hesitate to call him a breakthrough user, as even before this year his work has been excellent on its own and should have been read by the masses from the beginning, but I suppose the fact that his work's being read more and more now does qualify on the second part of this category's description.

  1. I don't think anyone expected The cheif to return to the wiki as a respectable and productive user. For that reason, he is my nomination for Breakthrough User. DemonsofHope »Anonymous ONI agent« [COMMS] [SERVICE RECORD]
  2. While I will say that Brodie has most definitely contributed very much to the site this year, I can't help but think that the award for Breakout User belongs to Lieutenant Davis. He's definitely returned much more mature than before, and has made some nice articles already. Keep it up, Davis! --Am I a Lion, or a Lamb? Or a Boy? Saint or Sinner?
