Ex Memoria Scientia would not exist without the help of the entire House. Everyone who submitted a profile, article, graphic, and/or memory gets the Muchas Gracias! award. Thank you all for participating in this 10th anniversary celebration of HOL Ravenclaw.
Now a special recognition of Firsts! Eager eaglet Scarlet Irisa submitted the First Profile. Although not added to the yearbook until later, the article Maravillas Arrington wrote for her staff writer application about the Salsa Squad was the First Article. Edmund Smethwyck's Karen Circa MVP article was the First Quidditch Article. By revealing the history behind the Ickle Eagles Ask the Experts, Cassandra Lobiesk sent in the First Around the Roost Article. The First Graphic was the Library header created by Karlia Baker. Abigail Granger submitted the First Memories, which can be seen in the Classes and HOL sections.
Onto the rest of the awards!
Over 100 profiles were sent in, but one stood out; Best Personal Quote goes to avid RPer Finn Cullen. If you do not understand, the Things NOT to Do in Ravenclaw list may shed some light (or should we say Twilight?) on it.
For 'daring to know' everything from Nests to her quidditch teammate and co-captain, Maravillas Arrington receives the Aude Noscere award. Rin Silrose gets the On the Perch award for understanding the value of the Perch and writing about the Alte Sententiam. The most-coveted Points! award goes to Ryan Granger for always debating for more points for all his activities. Especially as the year was ending, we could truly appreciate Dolly Frazer's quick Around the Roost articles, so she gets the No Poking Needed award. Longtime HOLer Akira Yamada celebrates with the Weathered Writer award (or perhaps curls up with a nice book).
The Remember When? award goes to Arielle Lemoyne for her work in the Memories and Superlatives sections. Speaking of Superlatives, try to guess which ones were made by Dean Fuaddy, the winner of the Best Use of Eagles in Superlatives award. More Superlatives were added largely due to the Super Superlative Suggester - Amy Lupin! The Largest Winning Margin for any Superlative belongs to Prof. Ulol Kimil, but we'll let you try to figure out which one. While you are trying to decide, the Most Indecisive award goes to Ernest Slughorn for providing two choices for Most Likely to Speak Mermish Fluently.
Silmarien Szilagyi receives the Shiny Waffle Iron award for writing about her most valuable friend. Bella Coupland is the Winning Writer who contributed to the Awards article. For documenting the Bronze and Blue Olympics and providing some lovely graphics, Kirra Rohan gets the Royal Olympian award. New eagle Emily Cullen showed up as the Eleventh-Hour Graphiccer.
Her natural ability to dodge many Roost PMs gives Tara Aurelium the Immune to Poking award. It took the return of the Quiddy Queen, Kyrie Adderholt, to get everything in the Quidditch section done. Edmund Smethwyck, the Stats Stud, stood close by to help out with quidditch statistics.
Turns out the results of The Eagles in the past was wrong, it is actually the Ravenclaw Yearbook that steals Prof. Rhiannon Llewellyn's brain. For providing memory after memory, Prof. Rhiannon Llewellyn gets the Stolen Brain award.
She might not want recognition for making the sidebar graphics or being Preppy or writing many, many, many quidditch articles or planting the idea to create yearbook awards, so Prof. Cassandra Lobiesk receives Not an Award.
Every team has a most valuable player. She contributed to every list, wrote two articles (with graphics), and ended with a total of 21 Superlative graphics to her name. Without a doubt, Arnora Eleniel deserves the Yearbook MVP award.
The Moral Support award goes to a non-Ravenclaw. Rowan Dream, thank you for discussing and complaining (mostly complaining) about yearbook with me. *points to the links on the side* Don't forget to check out the other yearbooks!
Her beautiful graphic work is seen throughout the yearbook and she worked tirelessly on the profile pictures. She talked me out of silly ideas and fully supported the other ones. It was great plotting with you, Jenna Hathaway, my Trusty Sidekick.
Last but not least (actually it's the most important of all!), because without her there would not have been a Yearbook at all, the Yearbook Superhero award is given to the most hardworking lady of all; Prof. Scarlet Leslie and her mighty poking stick!
