Nominations: Know That I Fought Until the Lights Were Gone

Hello, children of mine! Please fill in the comment number, first name, and last initial of the writers whose work you're nominating below, then explain why you chose them. (The explanation needs to be good, not "I think ____ is awesome.")
Writers who earn four nominations in this thread will earn 10% extra credit for their post. Please respect the process's integrity and refrain from swapping nominations, as I reserve the right to dismiss or delete nominations I believe to be suspect.

On behalf of whomever you're nominating, thanks for your participation!
