Hello everyone! We’re doing something different here tonight! Me and discord-in-the-garden-tonight started talking about GGs as soon as Nationals were over – because we’re just too anxious and excited to wait for it! We ended up doing a list of possible nominees and winners, and it was initially just for ourselves, but we decided to share it with you guys, cause why not?
