•MAY 23, 2013 --- Due to some member confusion, we have clarified one of our rules regarding word count/length, the new minimum word count for a thread is 250. Not to worry though, guys! We can do this one in our sleep! =)

•MAY 6, 2013 --- So, I forget this all the time - So I decided to post a friendly reminder (yay! =D) When you start a thread, remember to leave a timestamp. Currently the date can be found in the c-box, and the format is:
•MAY 5, 2013 --- It has come to our attention that several human characters have selected odd names that might not fit our universe. While we are allowing you to keep the names you have chosen, we are requesting future members take common names. For more information, read this announcement.
•MAY 1, 2013 --- It's our Grand Opening! We have opened our board, and we are now accepting applications! Most Wanted: Eve, Crowley, Bobby Singer, Meg! A special thanks to Chuck and Frisk for collaborating their efforts in creating the forum skin. If you find any problems with the skin, please notify us here.
HOW IT WORKS ■ By Virtue Fall offers four total of the month awards, and this requires input from our members to dish these out! If there is, by some rare event, no feedback: The winners will be selected by the staff, at their discretion, so please don't do this to us! Please, make your nominations before May 24th, so we can begin the voting process before the month switches over!
■ Staff Members should be avoided as nominations, and they cannot receive the member of the month award under any circumstances. You're free to nominate them for any other award, however, we really feel that the focus should be on you guys, rather than us. Let's face it, everyone all ready knows who we are, right? ;D So with any further adieu, I give to you:

MEMBER OF THE MONTH: Lish REASON(S): She is always in the c-box, ready to welcome guests into our midst. She is also very charismatic, and always optimistic toward other players. I am a fairly new body to RPG-dom, but I know a good personality when I see it. Someone give this girl a cookie! THREAD:Profile
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH: Rose Vandegrin (or Jovi, I can't pick, don't make me) REASON(S): She is everywhere, and she is hillarious to read. I am thoroughly amused when I read her posts, and I think she is an ingenious little familiar with a lot of personality. THREAD:Rose Vandegrin
DUO OF THE MONTH: Axel & Louis REASON(S): Yes, I'm breaking the rules, so bite me. I can't help but return to read more between these two. I think , personally, that you guys deserve some credit, and would recommend dropping staff members not being able to be nominated. I know I live with you, and I'm biased, but you guys put in alot of work as well, and could use some member benefits. So - If you guys haven't read this thread, go do it. THREAD:Moonlit Fractures
THREAD OF THE MONTH: Samson Fletcher, Alienne Carson, and Rose Vandegrin REASON(S): First, I am a fan of Raising the Bar. I love how this thread establishes so much of the bars environment, how it runs behind the scenes, and perhaps a hint of territorial behavior between Alienne and Rose. I keep gong back to this thread in hopes that it has progressed and there is more to read. THREAD:A hopeful job opportunity.
MEMBER OF THE MONTH: Lish REASON(S): Very active in all areas of the site, not just in character posting. THREAD:Lisa Braeden
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH: Lisa Braeden REASON(S): Lisa has been portrayed spot-on as she is in the show, and seeing the other side of how she's dealing with memory loss and meeting a Winchester again is just made of so much win. THREAD:Bending the Future
DUO OF THE MONTH: Patrick Fitzpatrick & Rose Vandegrin REASON(S): The way they play off one another makes them interesting and amusing to follow around. Their interactions make me want to read more about them again and again. THREAD:The Chips Are Down
THREAD OF THE MONTH: The Chips Are Down REASON(S): The wittiness of Patrick and observation of Rose is simultaneously intriguing and definitely entertaining. It's a thread I keep coming back to read. THREAD:The Chips Are Down
MEMBER OF THE MONTH: Lish REASON(S): She's always so polite to people, and is probably one of the fastest posters I've ever seen. THREAD:
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH: Sam Winchester REASON(S): Who doesn't love Sammy? Frisky's take on Sam Winchester is awesome and it has been literally years since I've run across such a good Sam. He is so adorable too. THREAD:Application
DUO OF THE MONTH: Sam & Lisa REASON(S): Frisk's Sam is just phenomenal. This thread is just amusing with Sam backpedaling and sounding like an ultimate creeper. Lisa is also so very well written and so I nominate them. THREAD:Bending the Future
THREAD OF THE MONTH: Samson Fletcher, Alienne Carson REASON(S): I'm kind of religiously stalking this thread and I'm incredibly amused with it. Both participants are fantastic writers and they both drew me into the thread seemingly effortlessly. THREAD:Just Add Water
MEMBER OF THE MONTH: Lish REASON(S): She's always ready to help out a guest, plot with someone, or just sit down and chat. I already feel like Lish is becoming a pillar of our forum, young though it may be! She also writes Lisa very well, and Death....well, I don't even know what to say there. She writes Death. <3 Basically, she's everything we could have asked for in a member so early on in the forum. THREAD: Application Link/Thread they are nominated for.
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH: Ed Zeddmore REASON(S): There's something that both draws you in and repulses you about Oswin's Ed. Maybe it's the way there seems to be all that sincerity wrapped up in ego. Maybe it's the way he and Dean together get reduced to toddlers. Maybe it's just that Oswin does a wonderful job of writing one of the beloved and belittled Ghostfacers. Either way, I think this has so far been my favorite character to stalk. THREAD: Thread they are nominated for.
DUO OF THE MONTH: Rose & Patrick REASON(S): While I am still reeling from watching Patrick kill Lia in the show, [Yeah, I just saw that episode last night. Those writers are bastards!] I'm enjoying seeing the way Rose and Patrick play off of one another. It's interesting to see just where this thread is going to go, and what shenanigans these two will kick up. THREAD: Thread they are nominated for.
THREAD OF THE MONTH: Bending the Past REASON(S): 1. Sam does yoga. 2. Lisa is developing a crush on Sam. 3. It's just one of the most hilarious, awkward, and yet moving reads we have on the forum so far. I'm enjoying reading it, I love the way the writers become more comfortable with one another, and their characters get chattier. I'm also looking to the sequel: Breaking Faces. <3 THREAD: Thread they are nominated for.
MEMBER OF THE MONTH: Khione REASON(S): Why you ask? Because I adore her. She's almost always lurking in the cbox, which is creepy helpful whenever guests who lost their way show up with questions. She's upbeat and fun to talk to, and always has a joke to throw out and keep things funny. She brings us a sweet angel and a gutsy hunter taking on Death himself, how can you not love that? THREAD: N/A
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH: Ben Braeden REASON(S): It's difficult to play a young teenager, and almost impossible to do it on a board full of adults and creatures they have no interaction with. I think Companion is off to a fantastic start with our resident angsty teenage boy from a small town who has lost his memories. I can't wait to see how the character branches out and grows through all the drama, and perseveres through the difficulties of finding a place among hunters and demons alike. THREAD:Birthday...pie?!
DUO OF THE MONTH: Azrael&Balthazar REASON(S): An Angel and the Harbinger of Death. What better pairing can you find? These two play off each other perfectly, just enough to drive the other one crazy without starting a full-on battle between them. We all know Azrael would win that. Flitting around the world, these two have already begun to entertain me and have me waiting to see just what happens next. THREAD:Azzie & The Seven Dwarfs
THREAD OF THE MONTH: Rose Vandegrin, Samson Fletcher, Alienne Carson REASON(S): An angel and a cat walk into a bar...Okay, so it's not exactly the plot, but it's close. No ganking demons or cutting off heads, this is simply a cute thread with jealousy woven in. Even the Supernatural world needs a break from the gory evil to remember what normal life is like. Rose simply wants a job, Samson wants staff and to know why the heck Rose looks like his wife and Alienne? Well, she wants Rose to go as far away from Samson as possible. With things getting interesting, it'll be fun to watch where it all goes. THREAD:A Hopeful Job Opportunity
MEMBER OF THE MONTH: Lish REASON(S): Lish is so super duper ridiculously friendly. When I joined she was really vocal in the cbox and very eager and willing to plot with and thread with me. I've seen her be nice to everyone else and seems to be awesome about plotting/greeting/etc. So I vote for Lish! THREAD: n/a ?
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH: Dean Winchester REASON(S): I know you said to avoid nominating admins but whatever, I'm doing it anyway, because you guys are just as awesome as everyone else. ANYWAY. Katra's Dean is AMAZING. He is so spot on and a perfect portrayal of Dean. Reading him in his various threads just makes me so very, very happy. THREAD: All of them.
DUO OF THE MONTH: Sam Winchester & Lisa Braeden REASON(S): This thread has just been awesome. Watching the two of them thread has been ridiculously awesome. It's an amazing read and it just gives me all the awesome feels, okay? THREAD:Bending the Future
THREAD OF THE MONTH: Rose Vadegrin, Alienne Carson, Samson Fletcher REASON(S): Watching the interaction between Samson/Rose was awesome. Then Aly bust in being jealous and territorial. And I just love it. Watching the girls interact and Samson just kind of sit back and be amused makes for an amazing read. THREAD:A Hopeful Job Opportunity
MEMBER OF THE MONTH: Oswin REASON(S): Oswin is friendly, creative, active, and seems to love absolutely everyone. I would like to give Oswin the 'puppy' badge, because she seems so absolutely happy to see anyone that pops their nose into cbox. It is this sort of enthusiasm that makes me really proud to be a member (as well as staff) on By Virtue Fall. THREAD: N/A
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH: Icarus Dehalen REASON(S): I feel like a non-sparkling vampire should be commended, although controversially I suppose Icarus is still a vegan vampire. xD Either way Kath has provided a very interesting spin on the bloodsuckers, and all-in-all I think if you haven't read this thread, you should. THREAD:Vamps out of the bag
DUO OF THE MONTH: Jeremy Signer and Alexander Freeman REASON(S): (hides in a hole) I know I said I wouldn't be voting for staff, to hell with that rule for now I say! Jeremy and Alexander have a beautifully complex relationship, which we can see in their thread pretty well. I love the fact that these two bounce their replies off one another in such a manner that leaves the reader hooked. I believe some props are in order. THREAD:When You're Evil
THREAD OF THE MONTH: Dean Winchester, Ed Zeddmore, and Sam Winchester REASON(S): Because NO ONE PISSES ON OUR FRIGGIN IMPALA, OKAY?! -.- Ok, honestly I hate voting for any thread I'm in, but I am voting more for the sake of Ed and Dean than myself. Their character dynamics just blow me through the roof, and I bet you can't honestly tell me that nobody else is as amused as I am. =) THREAD:Ghost! Ghost facers!
