2019 Silmaril Awards // Nominations



Yes, my good friends, it is that time once again. It’s time to nominate your favorite fantasy characters!

This year, I will be hosting the award for…

Most Mischievous Imp!

This character must be a trickster, a joker, a wise guy (or girl)! Someone who is always getting into trouble and just barely getting out of it. Someone who perhaps loves a good prank, but really has a heart of gold. Or maybe someone who has no good intentions and instead rather enjoys causing more problems than solutions.

Rules //

  • NO Lord of the Rings characters. Most of them will be presenting the award winners, and, well, how awkward would it be to accept your own award?
  • No previous winners. If you don’t know who those previous winners, check it out on our site!
  • Only fantasy characters are available for nomination. If a solid argument can be made for a certain book or series that you think is technically in the fantasy genre…we’ll allow it.
  • Be sure to mention which book/series the characters are from. Us mods consider ourselves fantasy experts extraordinaire… but we haven’t read every single fantasy book out there. It really helps us out!
  • Nominate and second as many characters as your dragon-loving heart desires. All you have to do is comment down below! The top 5 MOST seconded characters will go on to the final round, so seconding is important!
  • Authors are NOT allowed to vote for their own characters. But you can definitely encourage your fans to vote for them!
  • Be sure to use the hashtag! This isn’t mandatory, but it helps to spread the word! #silmawards2019! And check out our Facebook group too! It’ll be a blast! 😉

And be sure to nominate your favorites in the other categories too!

Nominations will close this Friday, so be sure to get allll of your nominations in before then! And remember to have a blast!

New Until Next Time!

  1. Such a fun category! I nominate…

    -Alexei from Romanov by Nadine Brandes
    -Leo from The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwin
    -Dario from the Great Library series by Rachel Caine
    -Lionheart from Tales of Goldstone Wood by Anne Elisabeth Stengl


  2. I second:
    Hugh from Curse and Consequence
    Lionheart from Tales of Godstone Wood
    Crispin from Beaumont and Beasley

    I nominate:
    Devin from To Court a Queen by HL Burke


  3. I already nominated Sage from The False Prince (By Jennifer Nielson) as a silver-tongue… But I also nominate him for this. 😅
    The Whispering Skull, from the Lockwood and Co. series by Jonathan Stroud (arguably paranormal, but that’s often still classified under fantasy).
    Nastya from Romanov, by Nadine Brandes.


  4. I second:
    -Twinkle from House of Many Ways
    -Lionheart from Tales of Godstone Wood
    -Crispin from Beaumont and Beasley
    -The Nac Mac Feegle from Discworld

    In addition, I nominate Leo Valdez (Percy Jackson — what? Leo’s the best).


  5. I second Leo Valdez!
    I also nominate Ulf, Wulf, Jesper, and Stefan from BrotherBand Chronicles, can I nominate Ruffnut and Tuffnut from How to Train Your Dragon? I’m not sure if they’d qualify. I’ve never actually read the books, but the movie versions certainly fit the description.


    • Ruffnut and Tuffnut are not from The How To Train Your Dragon books, so they probably don’t qualify. They might, though, who knows?


      • Ruffnut and Tuffnut do NOT count (sadly because I LOVE them… but they only appear in the movie/tv show versions of the story). They have to be in a book first per the rules of the awards.


  6. I second Leo Valdez, and the Brotherband boys, and nominate Percy Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus, Toothless from the How To Train Your Dragon book series (he was such a mischievous little imp!), and Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle.


  7. I would love to nominate Toothless from “How to Train Your Dragon” because he literally is THE most mischievous character I can think of, but I know almost no one has read the actual book and everyone thinks of him as a cool black nighfury that you can ride instead of the tiny little cat-sized pet he actually is.

    So I will nominate Mr. Toad from “Wind in the Willows” instead.


  8. I nominate Eugenides from the Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner. (The most wonderfully mischievous imp I’ve ever encountered, and so much more besides.)

    And I also nominate Prince Colin from The Reluctant Godfather by Allison Tebo.


  9. I nominate:
    — Zaig from Red as Blood (Five Poisoned Apples; Maddie Morrow)
    — Mat Cauthon from The Wheel of Time (Robert Jordan)
    — Walter from Dragons in Our Midst (Bryan Davis)
    — Toopka from The DragonKeeper Chronicles (Donita K. Paul)


  10. I nominate:

    Pet from the City Between series by W.R. Gingell (cause I may have also seconded her for Heroine, but she can be an imp when she wants)


  11. I second Toopka, Sage, Twinkle and Walter. And I nominate Keefe Sencen from Keeper of the Lost Cities. TEAM FOSTER-KEEFE!!!


I love hearing from you! ^_^
