MEMBER OF THE MONTH
- Gunner has very interesting characters, especially Jack. Her writing style is excellent! She may not hang around in the Discord that much but she has very wonderful characters and a great writing style!
- Gunner is a totally chill person with lots of interesting experiences and a really fun and descriptive writing style! Jack’s character is played really well - right down to the NPCs included in his threads. Odessa also seems to stay true to her character, despite being a Saint; she’s not so wild and quirky as Jack, but still played just as well!
DUO OF THE MONTH
Banna & Chase
- They are just so cute! They go together really well, and their strong friendship is fun and heartwarming to watch. Especially when you consider the struggles they have faced along with their gang. They still remain close, perhaps even closer than before, despite disagreeing and at the end of the day are always there for each other.
SCARIEST OF THE MONTH
- Kelpie is a very scary character. Reading his threads and posts send shivers down my spine, especially how he's super homicidal and even gets cannibalistic thoughts or so. He can be cute sometimes, but deep down he's ready to rip you apart, maybe even eat you. It's also super terrifying how he even "plays" with others when it's really actually torturing them. I've seen an example, and it's pretty chilling. River did a great job with Kelpie, both he and his sister Banshee are equally horrifying characters, and Kelpie deserves Scariest of the Month in every possible way.
- He's terrifying, with his childlike murderous intentions. I love the chills that I get when reading his threads.
-There’s just something so off about him. He’s a terrifying cannibal, but that’s not the only scary thing about him. Adding onto that his childish and distracted behavior coupled with his violent tendencies is truly frightening.
- Kelpie reminds me of one of my favorite characters in a TV Show called The Following (the more manipulative of the Gray Twins), which is why I read (and love) Kelpie’s threads!
FUNNIEST OF THE MONTH
- He's quite cute and spunky, and I love how in one of his posts, he thinks he was super scary while he was just a pup, and how his mind just makes everything different than it already is and he believes it. Whiskey does not have the usual personality of a Yardie, and instead, he's just really funny and cute.
MOST UNIQUE OF THE MONTH
- I just love the concept of ‘the witch of Almakee forest’. I love the idea that she’s kind of this creepy figure dogs might whisper stories about but is actually not that bad at all. She’s all around an interesting character, from her blindness to her witchcraft and her personality. I can’t wait to see more of her!
- I love Sister Grimm’s creepy personality and the way River writes her! She’s a mysterious character all around, and if its not seen by the way Sister Grimm speaks, it’s River’s style of prose in her posts! Well done, River!
THREAD OF THE MONTH
Watch Your Step And Watch Your Words (LINK)
- This thread shows Bones' anger being taken out on someone in a very aggressive way. It shows his reaction after Banna made her choice of making Spider a Lieutenant, and how he then chooses to take out his anger on someone who was in Banna's defense. It shows Bones' anger, his thoughts, and how he interacts with a gangmate through the feelings he's having. The way how Bones displays his anger in this thread makes me honestly scared of him sometimes.
QUOTE OF THE MONTH
“Oceane, there's no one but us out here. G- Gothic isn't here anymore." -- Castor
- This quote just tugs on my heartstrings! Océane is so sick that she thinks she’s seeing her missing father and Castor has to break the bad news to her. I think this quote is a great reminder that just because it’s been a while since Gothic disappeared, doesn’t mean that the Crabs have completely moved on yet, especially his daughter. It really fits the ‘Season of Sorrows’ title of the current plot.

UPCOMING END OF THE SUMMER CONTEST
We need to breathe a little life back into this place! Summer’s coming to an end, which means back from vacation, but also back to school and such! Infidelis needs some new blood, which is why we’ll be holding a Advertising Contest! We’ll make an announcement when it’s actually live, so everyone will know when it starts and what’s going on when it does!
While we’re still working out the details of it thanks to it being a little different than your usual advertising contest, we’re hoping that, with all of our members’ combined efforts, we can help the IF community expand even more!
