::Smoothing his dress uniform, RangerReady makes his way out onto the stage, brushing off the gold braid at his cuffs::
RangerReady: You know, I never realized how many puddles this city keeps lying around! I'm glad there's a fifteen-minute dry-cleaners next door."
::Reaching into his inside pocket, he fumbles for his notes...which were there, before...::
RangerReady: Uhmm...unfortunately, it seems that the cleaners still have my notes! Ah well...no matter! My memory is good enough, I think, to take on the task.
::Looking up, he makes a thoughtful expression::
RangerReady: Hmm...what category was this, again?
::From the catwalks above, a fishing line suddenly descends, a piece of notepaper suspended on the hook. Smiling gratefully, RR quickly removes it, laying it on the podium.::

ArChip (smiles) :My first GAA's...I can't imagine that on first GAA's I won! I have no words...
::The audience applauds while Archip collects himself::

::Archip smiles out into the audience::
Archip: And the special "THANKS" to our one man- Silent Shadow, who critiques all our works and that's why we try to do them better and better. :)))
::The spotlight goes to Silent Shadow in the audience who stands and waves as everyone claps::
Archip: And to Sinclair! He's working on a really big project and I'm trying to help :D
::The spotlight shifts to Sinclair who stands and bows, then the light returns to Archip as the applause concludes::
Archip: Also my congratulations to all our winners!
::Archip applauds and the audience follows suit::
Archip: And just my BIG THANKS to all. Thanks for everything!
::ArChip waves his right hand and slowly walks offstage. Trash comes up and speaks in Russian, which gets great applause from the Russian contingent. Then he speaks in English::
Trash: Thanks, I'm very pleasantly surprised that so many people out there were pleased with my artwork! This is my first year in the fandom and I didn't expect this kind of success. I nearly stopped drawing, but with the success I have with you, the fans, I plan to continue on. Thank you again!
