The Winner of the Most Epic Heroine Award


Madeline: Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, both magical and otherwise, to the Most Epic Heroine Ceremony! I hope you have all been having a good time, seeing the winners of everyone else’s categories, and have been delighted at the outcomes. But I’m sure you’re all ready to see who has won in this category, so without anymore ado I introduce our presenter, Eowyn!

Immense cheers and clapping fill the room as Eowyn approaches, shocked and delighted at the ecstatic noise.

Eowyn: Thank you, Madeline, for hosting this gathering, and thank you, kind people that your are, for your enthusiasm. I appreciate every one of you. I am so honored to be here with you all and am overjoyed that you would think me such a wonderful hero to present this award.

More cheers sound and feet thump joyously on the ground, vibrating the entire room.

Eowyn: *smiles at the crowd, and then clears her throat* If I could have your quiet attention, I would like to list off the contestants who have proved themselves eligible for this wonderful award. First off, we have…Leeli Igiby!

Leeli uneasily gets to her feet, giving the most elegant bow a lady with a crippled leg can, as the crowd claps in excitement for her. Peet excitedly leaps up, clapping his socked hands furiously. Leeli gently guides him back into his seat, and smiles as he murmurs something eagerly in her ear.

Eowyn: *attempts to keep a laugh in while watching Leeli and Peet* A worthy contender, most courageous and compassionate indeed. Next on the list we have…Fern!

Fern bounces from her seat and gives a graceful bow as the crowd claps eagerly. She glances suddenly to her left with a look of apprehension in her eyes. There appears to be nothing there, but Fern smiles with a glitter in her eyes.

Eowyn: A truly lovely young girl, brave in the face of many dangers, not always seen by others. *gives Fern a kind look* Continuing down the list we have…Aravis!

Aravis swiftly gets to her feet and gives a most splendid bow, smiling at Shasta all the while. From the back of the hall, a couple of loud whinnies are heard, as well as some hoof stomping and loud shouts of approval from Hwin and Bree. A few people turn in surprise, amazed to see talking horses, but then realize that anything can happen at a fantasy awards ceremony. Of course there would be talking horses.

Eowyn: A most brave and adventurous spirit, kind to her animal friends, and loyal to her human friends. Next, we have…Cress!

Cress’s eyes dart away from examining the hall in awe, toward the center stage. She hurriedly gets to her feet as uproarious applause breaks out, giving a clumsy bow, and nearly falling on her face. Thorne quickly steadies her and silently urges her to return to her seat. She does so, her face a bit redder than it was before. Despite this, she gives a shy smile.

Eowyn: *smiles back, and continues with a laugh in her voice* A sweet, loyal friend and amazing lady, always there for her friends. Finally, we have…Jill!

Jill rises from her seat and gives a gentle curtsy, while Eustace sits in his seat, stubbornly not clapping, but smiling at Jill all the same. Puddleglum rolls his eyes and shoves Eustace in the shoulder, prompting Eustace to clap like a proper human being. Eustace finally gives in and gives a slow clap or two.

Eowyn: *lets out a small laugh, watching Eustace and Puddleglum* A fiercely loyal friend and brave explorer, most definitely deserving of this award. Of course, all of these wonderful ladies are more than deserving of the title Most Epic Heroine. I’m sure you are all most eager to here the results, so I won’t leave you to wonder any longer.

The winner of the Most Epic Heroine award is…

The crowd murmurs, suspense filling the room…The suspense fills the room, stealing everyone’s breath, leaving everyone unable to move…Contained excitement buzzes in the room, waiting to be unleashed…


Thunderous applause smashes throughout the room, as people jump to their feet, filling the room with an electric energy that makes the room practically glow.

Aravis rises to her feet, her whole body trembling with excitement, and makes her way to the stage to stand beside Eowyn. Her face is lit up and her heart pounds fiercely in her chest.

Eowyn: On this day, we grant you this award, for your bravery in the face of lions, your loyalty to your friends, your kindness to the Talking Horses Hwin and Bree, your resourcefulness when escaping the Tisroc’s palace, and your unwavering perseverance in the face of troubles and sorrow. Please accept this medal, Aravis, for you surely deserve it.

Eowyn reveals a beautiful gold medallion with a smooth string of pink silk, and places it over Aravis’ head.


Eowyn: Thank you all for coming to this ceremony, thank you for having me, Madeline, and thank you Aravis, for being an inspiration to people everywhere. We could all learn something from you, and I hope your story will live on to inspire many young souls in the years to come.

Madeline: There you have it! The winner of this year’s Most Epic Heroine! Let’s give one last round of applause for Aravis!

Happy cheers and claps fill the hall one last time. Leeli, Fern, Cress, and Jill come up on stage and congratulate Aravis, hugs become contagious, and a grand feast is held afterwards, with Aravis sitting at the front of the banquet table with her dear friends Shasta, Hwin, and Bree.

Send your congrats to Aravis down in the comments! And go read the stories these amazing ladies are in, so you can see them in all their epic-ness! 😀 Thanks for tuning in, and remember to check out the winners of all the other categories as well!

New Until Next Time!

  1. Aaaahhhh! I love this! The introduction to each nominee was so fun! Cress tripping was so adorable (my sweet bby girl! <3) and Eustace not clapping was hilarious.

    Huge congrats to Aravis!!! She's so amazing. I voted for Cress, but I was gonna be happy about ANY of them winning. They all totally deserve it! (Though I've yet to read the Wingfeather Saga, but from what I've heard Leeli is a fantastic character!)

    *applauds loudly* I loved every bit of this!

    1. Yaaaaay!! So glad you did!! Lol, yes, Cress is such a sweetie, and Eustace is…well, Eustace. XD

      Yes, I’m so glad she won!! I voted for Cress too, but I agree, they’re all quite fitting for the title. 🙂 (I REALLY need to read the Wingfeather Saga!! I’ve heard nothing but good things about it!)

      *bows* It was such a fun time! ^_^


  2. Awwww! I love Aravis… and now I need to go re-read The Horse and His Boy….

    1. She’s such an awesome character! I actually just finished reading The Horse and His Boy for the first time, so that was really cool that she won! ^_^


  3. Congrats to Aravis! I have to admit I’m a bit surprised she pulled it out. I was thinking Jill would be the winner (though I voted for Leeli because she’s quite epic indeed).

    A wonderful ceremony, Madeline. The exchange between Leeli and Peet was spot-on, and I liked how you did a short introduction as each of the characters was announced. Great job! 😀

    1. Yes, yes, congrats!! ^_^ I was too!! Those Narnia characters…they’ll win all the awards. XD ( I NEED TO READ THE WINGFEATHER SAGA SO BAD. O_O)

      Thank you very much, Zach! Haha, glad it was! I was a little worried about sticking it in, but I’m glad I did! 🙂 It was a lot of fun writing the little introductions! I thought it would be a nice way to get a little glimpse into each of the gals’ characters. 🙂


  4. Awww, how fun! All the heroines are so sweet and strong and brave. Congrats to Aravis! I just recently listened to Focus on the Family’s radio drama of The Horse and His Boy. ^_^

    (Cress nearly tripping was so cute. I just love the Lunar Chronicles cast so much.)

    1. They are all so epic in their own special ways!! Yay! Ooh, I’ll bet that was fun! I actually just read the book for the first time, so that was cool that she won! 🙂

      (Isn’t she just a little doll? ❤ The Lunar Chronicles are just fabulous.)


  5. Wow! I was actually a little surprised that the winner was Aravis. I think my sister convinced me to vote for Jill. But Aravis is a very worthy heroine! Congrats!

    I loved seeing all the heroines with their friends cheering. Peet clapping wildly for Leeli, the talking horses stamping and whinnying and cheering, Eustace stubbornly refusing to clap until Puddleglum shoves him–all of them, really. XD

    I honestly would have been happy with any of these winning (made it very hard to vote a couple weeks ago, let me tell you). And though I haven’t read The Girl Who Could See, I’ve heard about it, and can’t wait to read it.

    Great job! 😀

    1. Yeah, I was too!! They were all epic heroines, but I agree, she is quite worthy of this award! ^_^

      I’m so glad you found it entertaining!! It was such a blast to write about all of them!! <333

      I feel the same way! (Oh I know…it was nearly impossible! O_O) I haven't read it either, but now that I've seen how loved the characters are, I am definitely going to give it a shot!

      Thank you so much! ^_^


  6. I loved this!! Awesome presentation — I loved Eowyn presenting and how we got little snippets of all the nominees! Great job. 😀 *needs to read The Girl Who Could See and Cress* (Though I did briefly “meet” Cress in Cinder, I think, just this month!) And congrats to Aravis!! I actually voted for her and she’s definitely an epic heroine! ^_^

    1. Yay, thank you!!! I wanted to include all of the nominees, so I’m glad it turned out! 😀 I still have to read The Girl Who Could See too!! BUT DEBORAH. YOU NEED TO READ CRESS. :O It’s probably my favorite out of the series, because adorable squishy ships and all that. ^_^ Yes, hurrah!! She is an awesome heroine! 🙂
