Final AnimeVice/First ViceVerse Awards: MarchReturning to the familiar stage one last time, one lone male walks out from behind the curtain, wearing a fancy black tuxedo and hair meticulously combed in preparation for the night. He steps up to the microphone, and the audience goes quiet in anticipation for what the 20 year old had to say.
Vapo: “Welcome...ladies and gentlemen...to the final Vice Awards being hosted on Animevice. As we speak, the hours draw near to our closing time. Once the clock strikes midnight...all we have ever said, created, loved, hated, laughed at, and all things in between will be gone. So for this occasion, I will be doing a special recognition of all my fellow RPG players at the end, so stick around. But for now...ON WITH THE SHOW!”
A fanfare of trumpets rings out from the sides of the theatre, and the stage lights up to reveal two familiar red couches. Vapo sits on the one on the right, looking backstage over his shoulder.
Vapo: “My last awards show was fairly large, so I’d like to scale it down for this one. Please welcome two of my most vocal character; Elyssa Miyata and Ashlea Primrose!”
Out from behind the stage, a blond-haired girl wearing a large hat swings in from backstage using a grappling hook, and lands gracefully on the couch across the stage from Vapo. Contrasting with this dramatic entrance, another teenage girl with bright red hair proudly walks into the room, her black dress shining in the stage lights as her heels clattered against the stage. The girl who swung in only laughs at her cohost.
Elyssa: “What, you too boring to make a dramatic entrance like me?” She asks, grinning at the red-haired girl.
Ashlea: “Unlike you, I hold myself with dignity and grace. Look at you; who those shoes with a dress!?”
Elyssa: “I need to move, follow the adventure! I can't do that in heels!”
Vapo: “Ok ok! Let’s just get this show started, ladies. You can fight all you want afterwards.”
Elyssa: “I’m holding you to that!”
Elyssa: “Heroes! The daring people who go out and fight against evil! Only someone who is a true genius could attain this title, like myself.”
Ashlea: “You? A genius? Please, you are nowhere near as elegant or intelligent as me.”
Elyssa: “Say it to my face, princess ass! But whatever...nominees are Dan, Garo, Haruko and Arthur. And the winner is...”
Haruko: “Me, of course!”
Suddenly, a familiar pink-haired woman walks on stage and sits next to Vapo, her purple and black dress looking absolutely stunning in the stage lights.
Haruko: “You wouldn't do the last awards without me, right oh mighty creator?”
Vapo: “Of course I wouldn’t. You hosted my first awards show, and you will host the last. But yes, Haruko is the best hero this month.
Ashlea: “The nominees are as follows; Alexander, Eve, Huntsman, Falken and Alexander. The winner for this round is...”
Elyssa: “Eve, with three votes! Come on, you talking that slow is just wasting more time!”
Ashlea: “You, learn to shut your mouth before I burn it off!”
Elyssa: “BRING IT, CAT GIRL!”
And with that, the two take out their whips and dive backstage, the sound of fire crackling and insults ring out from behind the curtain.
Vapo: “...remember, that’s your sister.”
Haruko: “I know, but she’s still fun to be around. It’s like they said, Eve wins best neutral.”
Haruko: “Moving right along, who was the biggest evil person to ruin everyone’s day this month? Nominees this month are...Taylor and...oh for the love of-”
Vapo: “What, she’s a twisted spider girl who chops people up and makes dolls out of them.”
Haruko: “And she is a coward, narcissist, horrible seamstress...”
Vapo: “What she’s trying to say is that Marika Arachne won for her actions in Valentine’s Hearts.
Vapo: “Who had the most explosive fight this month? Well...nominees are...”
Just then, the cards in his hands are snatched by a blond-haired girl as she front flips back into her seat, her dress slightly dirtier than before.
Elyssa: “Now that her highness is safely locked away in a locker, I can finally show how great I am at hosting these awards. I am a genius, after all. Ahem. Nominees for best fight are; The brawl inside of Marika’s kaspa...you know, I really want to look around that place. Anyway, second nominee is Aria vs the spirit trees...eh I could have probably done better than her. And finally is Alex and Falken vs Fubai Long. Hey! Writer! I don’t know these guys! Why don’t you read other people’s topics!”
Vapo: “Hey, I have been saving a ton of the older topics. Plus, I like to marathon read a story once it’s over.”
Elyssa: “If you say so. The winner is both the brawl in the kaspa and my sister playing lumberjack. NEXT!”
Haruko: “I must say...I am disappointed. We only had one person who voted in this category. So you know what, we're voting too! The winners for best bromance are both Chase and Huntsman, and Eve and Chase!
Elyssa: “Why wasn't I nominated?! I am complete bros with Rachel and Ariana!”
Vapo: “You haven't been in an RP in months.”
Elyssa: “And who’s fault is that?!”
Haruko: “She does have a point.”
Vapo: “I'll make an RP with you soon, okay? Let’s move on before I release Ashlea...”
Ashlea: “NOT TODAY, BRUTE!” A loud voice rings out from back stage, Ashlea comes bursting out of the curtains and points her right pointer finger at Elyssa.
“I will be taking the stage from now on! Now be quiet and listen to a real announcer deliver an award! Ahem, best rivalry goes t-““HOLD IT!”
Out of the audience, an Asian-looking male runs up onstage and swipes the microphone out of Ashlea’s hands, after a cry of protest from her.
: “Yo Vapo, I like you guys and I’ma let you finish, but we're pulling the plug right now!”
Almost immediately, the lights go out and all music stops on stage, as if someone had cut the power.
Vapo: “Wait, what?! Who the hell gave you permission to pull the plug?! We still have three hours until shutdown!”
: “Too bad! Now get a move on before I pull the plug on more stuff!”
Handing the microphone back to Ashlea, the man jumps off stage and walks out the stage door. Ashlea only stood there, a red aura radiating out of her body.
Ashlea: “My chance...RUINED! THAT’S IT, THIS PLACE IS GOING DOWN!”
Vapo: “Hey, wait a minute!”
Vapo’s request wasn't heeded, and the fire mage’s whip erupts into flames. With a quick series of strikes, the entire theatre began to light up in flames. Ashlea further speeds up this process by firing bolts of fire at the faraway locations, causing them to catch on fire as well. All three of them stare at the burning theatre, dumbfounded at how fast Ashlea had managed to catch it on fire.
Elyssa: “...ARE YOU INSANE?! You're burning the entire building down!”
Ashlea: “I don't care! It’s going to be bulldozed in a few hours anyway, so I might as well do it myself! It’s not like all the awards were at this one theatre!”
Vapo: “But you're still burning this place down! What the hell am I going to do with the other half of these awards?!”
Before anyone could say another word, Haruko places her hand on Vapo’s shoulder, smiling at all of them.
Haruko: “I think I might have an idea.
Suddenly, a bright flash of light engulfs the theatre, blinding the now turned-off cameras. A faint sound of music can be heard coming from the center of the light source.
Haruko: “Sorry to keep you waiting! LET’S START THE SHOW!”
Looking back at Haruko, she was now transformed into her magical girl form, and music radiated out of the building, her powers making the crowd more excited to hear the rest of the show. Taking a glance around, the theatre had also changed. Instead of the traditional theatre with the two couches, the setting was now a concert house with the four of them on different pieces of furniture. Elyssa sat in a large chair with her feet propped up on a footstool, Ashlea sat on an even larger and more regal chair with her legs crossed, and Haruko stood center stage, a mic stand in front of her as the crowd cheered.
The new concert hall, unlike the previous purple and black colors, was adorned with a combination of dark blue and black colors along the walls, giving an overall calm vibe to contrast the loud music Haruko was projecting.
Vapo: "Wow...so this is new. I gotta say, I do like what they did with the place."
Ashlea: "It's fitting. Haruko, mind taking these next few ones? I'm too pissed off right now."
Haruko: "All right! It's as my co host said! BEST RIVALRY! Nominees are...well...just myself and Marika! Next month, you all should vote so I don't win by default! Onto the next category!"
CROWNING MOMENT OF AWESOME
Haruko: "The biggest, baddest, and best moments of the month! Which moment was THE crowning moment of awesome?! Let's find out! Nominees are; Falken throwing the wire thread javelin at the Bixie, Alex Wire Ball...not sure what that means, but we'll go with it! Last nominee is myself getting mad at Marika and showing her who is the boss! There appears to be a tie, so all three win! Congradulations!"
Elyssa: "Again...another category that I should have AT LEAST been a nominee in! I mean come on, my last adventure had me fighting giant spiders, dodging a storm of arrows, and hunting for treasure!"
Vapo: "But that was months ago. You can't jus-"
Elyssa: "Then give me another adventure! You are always using either Haruko or Aria, so let me have a chance again!"
Ashlea: "Pipe down, you had your time. Now it's time for the more interesting characters to get developed, like myself."
Elyssa: "You, interesting? The only adventure you've been in was you running away from a toddler, a cyclops, a spider chick, and that girl's mother. Yeah, that's some Oscar material right there."
Ashlea: "S-shut up!"
Vapo: "Haruko...please move on before they fight again."
Haruko: "Got it!"
CROWNING MOMENT OF FUNNY
Haruko: "The funniest moment of the month! Which characters had the audience laughing out loud?! Here they are; Eve and Falken in Hunt in general, and Chase being thrown through the forest by Osamu in Unforgiving Trees! Oooh, that second one sounds painful! You're both the winners!"
Ashlea: "Again? What's with all these ties?"
Vapo: "Not many people voted this month, so some of the less popular categories only got one or two votes. Come on guys, it's the first show! You have to vote!"
Elyssa: "Get on with it!"
BEST TEARJERKER SCENE
Haruko: "Ah yes, which moment made us feel sad while just being around the situation. Being a part of this topic, I would have to agree with the sole nominee and winner; Cosmina being tortured in Valentine Hearts. You had better have Aria make Marika pay for this."
Vapo: "Don't worry, you already injured the spider girl. And Aria's only just begun to fight Yuu...in your house."
Vapo: "Best lines!"
Vapo: "With a grand total of one vote, here is our best line! Ahem.
"Well clearly you don't need me here. When she finds a way to kill you, don't come whining to me! I'll just eat your body when I'm done with her." - Huntsman to Chase in Hearts. Looks like Huntman managed to get an award here after all! Congratulations man!'
Haruko: "You never answered me about my house."
Vapo: "I'll uh...tell you after the show. Mind going on?"
Haruko: "Very well. Next category is; best couple!"
Haruko: "Here it is, the best of all the official couples that we have here! And...surprise surprise, we have one vote in this category as well! Mind reading it off, Elyssa?"
Elyssa: "Ok! The best couple is...Haruko and John again! You two are winning this every month these days."
Haruko: "What can I say, we're both classy people. And it's not like there is much competition anyway. Who else is a prominent couple? Arthur and Lily? Sam and Luna?"
Ashlea: "Crown and Ha-" Before she could continue, Elyssa leaps over and covers Ashlea's mouth with her hand.
Elyssa: "Crowns really are shiny, right? Don't mind me, carry on." Soon, Elyssa wraps her arm around Ashlea's neck and places her into a headlock. The fire mage squirms for a few seconds...but is soon knocked out.
Haruko: "My favorite category once again! The best ship! What kind of unofficial pairings do we have this month? Let's read off the nominees! Eve and Falken, Chase and Marceline, Taylor and Leora...ok, who put that? Anyway, Eve and Chase, and finally, Arthur and Yuu. The winner is...Eve and Falken! They do seem like a decent pair, both being wise-cracking and part machine."
Elyssa: "I wonder what their kids would look like. Would it just be a sentient toaster that can grow limbs?"
Haruko: "Probably. Elyssa, take the next one!"
Elyssa: "Got it!"
BEST STORY THREAD
Elyssa: "Which story thread captivated the most people, and made them want to continue reading? Could said story be even half as awesome as me?! Let's see. The nominees are; Big Hunt and Valentine Hearts. The winner is Big Hunt!"
Vapo: "I really need to read that. It's one of the most active topics right now, next to Hearts, Trees and Gates."
Elyssa: "Read it if you want. Just don't forget what you promised!"
Vapo: "One of the lesser awards, who made the best location this month?! Well, we have two votes! JHWAB Kanto HQ and Marika's Kaspa! You both win!"
Elyssa: "You both? They are just locations dude...not people."
Vapo: "I know. I was trying to segway, but you ruined it."
Elyssa: "Do a better job next time then!"
Haruko: "Would you look at that...not a single vote for this category. For completion's sake, I will vote Cosmina as the best NPC this month!"
BEST NPC VILLAIN
Snapping awake, Ashlea dives for the results envelope and snatches it out of Vapo's hands. She was visibly pissed now, breathing harder than normal and glaring at Elyssa.
Ashlea: "I...have had it...with you being a brute to me! I am taking over for these last awards! You ok with that Haruko?!"
Haruko: "Go for it, girl."
Ashlea: "Great! *ahem*, the best NPC villain are the tree monsters from Unforgiving Trees. Just watch them sway back and forth, such un-majestic creatures. I could burn all of them to the ground, but that is a task for the brute's sister. What a shame. Anyhow, we have one personal award to give out before you all can start patting yourselves on the back. I'll read this word for word...*ahem*."
"Huntsman's biggest fuck up that's not his- Eve shooting the Kirin. Hah, and she yells at me! ...and that's what the paper says. It appears as if Eve messed up this time, and not the immature eldritch abomination."
Haruko: "We all make mistakes. Let's move on the final categories!"
Ashlea: "MY turn still. The nominees for best writer are; Kuma, Waybig and Justalittlegirl. And with a total of two votes, both Kuma and Waybig take the title!"
Elyssa: "That reminds me...didn't that little girl guy change his name? What was it again...hungry hippos?"
Haruko: "Hungry hunter. But I like that one better, so that will be his new nickname!"
Vapo: "That should be interesting. Elyssa, you're up!"
Ashlea: "Hey, wait!"
Elyssa: "Stand aside princess wanna-be, it's my turn to shine! The best players are like me, the most awesome people to be around and can spice up the situation just by being there! Nominees are; Chronowolf and...some guy I have never met." Elyssa grins at Vapo as she says that last part. She tosses the envelope to him like a throwing star, which he catches...somehow. "I'm just kidding, it's you, Vapo! Congrats!"
Vapo: "Thanks for voting for me everyone! I hope you've liked the awards so far!"
Ashlea: "Of course they like them, I am here, after all. You couldn't get much classier than this."
Elyssa: "Put a lid on it. Haruko, you do the last one!"
VICER OF THE MONTH
Haruko: "With pleasure. This is it...the first last Vicer of the month for Animevice, and the first one for Vice Verse. Who will be cemented as the top player, and receive this honor? Let's list the nominees. Justalittlegirl, Chronowolf, Kuma, Sam, Feha, Lobos, Waybig, and even you, Vapo. Would you look at that, we have eight nominees for this award! Let's see the results!
"It's a tie! All eight of you are the last Vicers of the Month for Animevice, and the first ones for Vice Verse! Congratulations to everyone! Wait...what are you doing?"
Walking up to the microphone stand, Vapo takes out a piece of paper and looks at the audience, hushed in anticipation for what he has to say.
Vapo: "Thank you all for attending these awards. I know they are a little late, but I still hope you found them enjoyable. With the closing of Animevice, I'd like to take the time to recognize my fellow players who have been influences to me during my time here in the RPG section. I can say for certain that I consider most of you to be my friends, and hope that there are still plenty of stories to be told by us here on the Vice Verse.
First off, I'd like to recognize Justalittlegirl(or hungry hunter, as he is now called). You are easily one of my closest friends here, and we have collaborated on more story ideas and characters than I can even remember off the top of my head. I know we have plenty of crazy stuff planned for our characters in the future, especially at the end of Hearts, so I look forward to working with you more. Keep being awesome.
For the sake of formatting, I will be listing everyone past this point with your name first, just so I don't have to keep coming up with transitions.
Kuma: Easily the most dedicated RPer on this site. He has been RPing on Animevice longer than any of us currently, and has provided us with some of the most interesting stories to RP in. The story he's been weaving through his various topics is shaping out to be a larger even than most realize, and I doubt that I can accurately speculate on what will happen next. Aside from his top notch RP skills, he is also working hard to make RP rules, the character index, the guide to RPing, establishing what is canon, greeting new players, and just being everywhere in general. Glad to have you here .
Chronowolf: Cwolf, Cwolf Cwolf...what is there to say? Our PM exchanges on AV were some of the highlights of my summer last year. You're a fun guy to talk to, and can still keep up with posting most of the time. So yeah, stay awesome man.
Waybig: One of the biggest breakout players I have seen, you needed next to no introduction to the section before you started RPing at a level of a pro. Unforgiving Trees is shaping up to be one of my favorite topics to be in, and all of your characters are unique in some way. I'm glad you joined us, and hope we can collaborate on some more stories .
SamJaz: You've been pretty inactive lately because of school, but the time before that was utterly crazy. Your cast of characters is easily one of the largest on the site(especially with KG added), and you made some of the most memorable villains that we have(Taylor and Jardsam come to mind.) I hope you come back stronger than ever, because this website is more active than it ever was on AV.
Shadowchaos: Oddly enough, you were the first RPGer that I ever met here, and that was when i was a frequent user of the Battles section. Our CAV was fun as heck to do, and the first RP fight that we had was a great introduction for me into the verse. If it wasn't for you and people like Sam and Kuma, I likely wouldn't have stuck around here. Hope to see you on here and AVB!
Lobos: Otherwise known as The_Last_Gunslinger, Lobos is second only to Kuma in our oldest veteran players. Your posts are some of the most well crafted that I've seen out of most writers, and they are fun to read most of the time, given the character history you often insert with people like Crow. I know real life has forced you to slow down posting, but I still look forward to your characters in stories and finishing RPs like Gem girls.
Feha: One of the people I've talked with least here, you were Sam's partner when you two were making posts like crazy, often more than 10 a day with your KG RPs. You have also seemed to have been inactive, but I still hope you come back during the summer, as I enjoy RPing with your characters and seeing what crazy adventure you and Sam have next for KG.
Finally, I'd like to recognize all of our newer players. From what I have seen of your character bios, each of you have something interesting that you can bring to the table. So without further ado, I will like recognize; EvilMegaCookie, Chef Banchou and Durst. Glad to have you all here.
I know that AV is now shut down, but that doesn't mean that the community has to die off as well. On the contrary, this new forum opens up the possibility of building the world better than ever, with even more options to customize posts than we ever had on AV. So I'd like to thank everyone for everything they have done over the years, and let's tell some great stories!"
And with that, Vapo places the mic back on the stand and exits stage right. Haruko stays to entertain the crowd with a live concert, Ashlea wanders off backstage, and Elyssa leaps into the crowd to party with everyone. Vapo, on the other hand, makes his way down the hallway as music echos from the concert hall just beyond the wall. Pushing open the exit door, Vapo casually strolls down the road, watching the burning building next door be torn down by a wrecking ball and multiple bulldozers. They didn't seem to mind the fire, in fact, it was as if it wasn't even there. He stops just outside of the safety barriers, leaning against them as he watched the place where so many memories were made, only to now be torn down. While the memories are still active next door, much of the building's previous history will be gone forever. It was a bittersweet moment, really.
Oddly enough, a piece of paper could be seen exiting the burning building, and began floating down to the ground, carried along by the wind. Vapo reaches his hand out, and the paper lands directly into his outstretched hand. After studying the paper for a few seconds, the writer smiles, looks back as the building collapses, and begins walking away into the sunset, paper in hand. It was time to get back to work.
