"I would like to nominate Candide for PA hood. Although sometimes a bit callous or mean, Candide has always been interesting and a frequent linchpin keeping the chat moving and interesting. With Candide, you can never know what to expect, and I highly enjoy that." -- Ilya Pas de la Serna's PG
"Aside from the fact that being avatar number ? is just plain silly, Candide plays a great straight man, but has a good bit more lurking behind the veneer of poor beleaguered misplaced monk. Then there's the whole 'loyal vassal' bit, willing if somewhat ineffectual at times. Candide also has a substantial presence in the chat, without being offensive! An honorable distinction I wish I could claim!" -- Dr. Kaylo Epsilon's PG
"I'd like to nominate Candide for PAship for his outstanding contribution to the chatscape of the dream as well as for his interesting personality. Candide may be an annoying git sometimes, but really, I think his ability to role-play as well as his fascinating character are quite deserving of a card. ^^;" -- Trabia Selphie
""Now, everyone should know only my opinions matter in this...dream thing. Everyone else's opinions could all go jump in a lake, preferably one with fish in it. Unless I ate all the fish of course..." Mercutio's voice trails off, thoughtfully.
"Anyway!" The kerssido quickly returns to his topic. "What I do have to say, is that an avatar who should get a card is---ohh, look! A mouse! I should throw that at my PG." With that, the kerssido flies off, disappearing for about twenty minutes.
At the end of the interval, a somewhat battered kerssido returns. "Candide should get a card, because he's an interesting avatar and played well, and is well thought out. And....yeah...ooohh...another mouse!" Mercutio flies off again. -- Mercutio's PG
"This nomination is for one of the shining contributors to The Dream, both in creative role-playing and artwork, Candide. Candide's player's artwork has graced the forums in such a way that at points it's hard to remember a time when she wasn't drawing artwork for us.
Not only that, but Candide's been a continual (and realistically played) presence in the Napping Cat Chat, his simplicity and lack of exceptional powers is at times an amazing breath of fresh air. Candide (and his PG) have had both the primary criteria fulfilled for getting a card, continued participation and creative contributions. I say he deserves his likeness on a card." -- Krinele Fullin's PG
"I feel Candide should be carded because the character is very well thought out and well played by his PG. And his PG is a fantastic artist too. " -- Kirasu's PG
"Hi, I would like to nominate Candide for a PA card. Candide's PG has been a standout contributor to the Dream for a while now. I often see Candide interacting in the chat and he is in several RP's as well as having recently started a very intriguing looking PERFORM thread. The PG is also a talented and very generous artist who has given many artworks and Bonus Cards out of sheer generosity as well as having provided many Adventure Cards. Candide is an interesting and quite enigmatic avatar that I am glad I have gotten to interact with. I feel he and his player more than deserve the recognition of a PA card." -- Dark's PG
"And once again its time for nominations! And for this lovely month of January I'm going on a religious flip. I choose...Candide! Why? Well because as long as I've seen this poor, hapless boy hang around chat...he's been laughs the whole way. From getting killed to becoming the vassal of the Demon Br-- eerr Prince Orias... it's a blast to see what'll happen next to him. Besides... if he gets carded maybe Orias will stop trying to enlist uitsunes into his little group of oddballs. Please pretty please transform Candide into a shiny Psychedelic Avatar! " -- Oralee Hoa's PG
"Ah... Candide. He's had such a rough week as of writing this; tangling with extraordinarily powerful avatars who could wipe him out with half a thought! You've got to respect that though. Despite his fragile human body, he's not afraid to speak his mind, most of the time at least. I mean, when you can torch a small village with a flick of your wrist you don't have to worry about whose toes you step on, but to step on the toes of someone whose foot is as big as your whole fragile human body, that takes guts...or recklessness at least. Either way, those are qualities I like in a vassal.
Speaking of being a vassal, Candide's been a great one so far. Sure, he hits like a kindergartner, but he's worked well in the support position I put him in. He does what I say, how can I not like that? It's just a shame at their best humans only live to be about 100. At least working for me must have damned him by now! Don't feel sorry for him though, I take good care of my friends! Overall, he deserves a card, and I know he'll get one. When he does, I'll be there to congratulate him too. -- Demon Prince Orias ((On an OOC note, I just what to say to Candide's PG... you're appreciated, more than you know. You play him well, from his skiddishness to his sudden forceful stands against homicidal dwarves, vampires, etc. Your posts are always timely, and you work within the limitations of your character. I'm proud to call you a friend, and Candide himself, a vassal of Orias.)) " -- Demon Prince Orias's PG
. If you've ever hung around in chat Chances are you've had a spat With a sharp-tongued, bitter, grumpy monk Who won't suffer fools and will debunk Any cheery, half-truth crap that flies He longs for faith, but God denies So don't tell him "things will all work out" Or he'll stuff your smiley jowls with doubt
Now he wasn't always quite so rude The Benedictine Order he pursued But along the way things just got worse He wound up with a heavy curse Chained to The Book of Divinities Like an albatross, a slow disease For trapped inside that hefty tome Past sacred psalms, the demons roam
But in the Dream, a spark of hope As Orias' vassal, perhaps he'll cope Learning how his psalter can be cleansed Or control the demons and make amends But let's not jump too far ahead And let such optimism spread For despite my psychedelic juice Candide seems destined for abuse
