“Awkward Morning Conversations”, USS Atlantis – December 2019
“I nominate ‘Awkward Morning Conversations’ from the USS Atlantis , a joint post between Captain Yulin Rael and Lieutenant Keri Kelea. Its a short post, but shows an off duty relationship between the two characters, which helps flesh out the characters. I look forward to seeing how the relationship between Kelea and her new beau develops.”
“This month, I’m proud to award Player of the Month to Keri Kelea! We were light on posts this month, but there were two that stood out: “Worn Down”, in which Keri must be ship’s counselor to our chief engineer, recently released from the brig following the bar fight and struggling with the alleged rape of his girlfriend; and “Instant Attraction”, in which her NPC confronts her alleged attacker, but is still somehow drawn to him. Keri has been a steadfast member of the team since Atlantis first launched a year ago, and it’s been a delight to write with her all this time.”
