2007 WCAs Winner's Circle and Award Display Thread

Postby Jiyadan » Sat Jan 19, 2008 10:55 am

Zahrah scanned the large hall and nodded, pleased with the location. The men of Dale were very handy, and were able to reach much higher than the Dwarves to get the decorations up.

Long silk banners representing all the peoples of Middle-Earth and the grand households that would be attending the event hung between the oak columns and rustled whenever the doors were opened.

At the far end of the hall were several multi-tiered tables draped with fine cloth and linens, embroidered with dragons, gold and jewels. Soon, the table would be filled with the glittering awards, ready for all to see and for their winners to pick them up.

She straightened a slight wrinkle and brushed away a bit of fluff and got ready to arrange each award as they were presented.

I'm afraid the largest image I have for you is already the one I've given. I suppose you can try to enlarge them.. I'll see what else I can do but I can't guarantee results. :oops:

For Jiyadin

Look how the colors dance and weave!
One look and one must thus believe
that elves are still among us here,
to cause such wonders to appear.
You were so faithful to create
what I have now received...but late.
May offered trust, a broken thing,
be healed and once again find wing,
to bring you ever constant joy --
this is the hope I thus employ
by writing this, and thanking you
for this, and legions more you do.

Your ever-servant,
Parm :)
Spring...hmmm....I've seen that word before...

This is the first time I've been here for the complete WCA awards (I usually end up coming in halfway through!) and I must say that the awards themselves are beautiful and well done to everyone involved!

Now I only wish I had premiere membership so I could put the Eldar Award for Fallen but not Forgotten thread in my sig! (Not that I'm selfish or anything! :D ;) )

I am very VERY sad to say that I missed the entire event!!! I didn't even know it was going to be held on the 19th!!!! Well, thanks Erinhue for your kind words---I'm sorry that Tempest wasn't around to respond to them.

I'm not exactly sure if the Voice of Sauron award is something that I should be proud of. I'm a nice person in real life, really I am!!! :P

Vison, Tempest - it would be fabulous if you could both make acceptance speeches in the Afterparty thread. :) And, in long standing TORC tradition, we have some light RP at work.

Please - stop by!

Elengil, my thanks to you for your wonderful artistic creations. Each award is unique and speaks of the qualities that have been celebrated. That is a tremendous ability! You are a very talented woman. May your many talents grow, flourish and support you!
