While the boys quarrel I’ll use the opportunity to make my participation in this years Miss Federation election public.
By doing so, I ask humbly for your support and vote. I’m convinced your voice won’t be wasted because there are few who represent the ideals of the Federation like me.

A few words regarding me:
I was born in YC91 as a slave, like way too many in New Eden. But I’m honest with you, I was lucky. Most of the time my owners were good to me. Docuit ergo domina meus me inter cetera legere et scribere. - I’m a little bit rusty here. - But this wasn’t meant to last. With 16 the Farm where I grew up came under attack and everyone I knew was murdered. My mom, my friend, my family… What followed were 7 years of literally fighting for survival. - Yeah, you never forget your first one. His googly eyes, in disbelief, not understanding what is happening to him. - Damn I wish I could forget that damn face! - Anyway, I’ll spare you the bloody details. Piloting a spaceship is like a game in contrast to that. Easy.

During those years I found new friends, a loving husband and lost them again. In the end, even my tribe turned away from me. They thought, where I go, misery would follow. I don’t blame them for that. - So I haunted our enemies instead :wink:

Anyhow, that’s not very Federation like! In YC114 a visitor came to my world and took me with him. Death was it what I wanted and that he gave me. Also a new beginning.

I was a quick learner - despite my High Gallente isn’t perfect, still.
Like many other capsuleers I started piloting different Mining Barges and saved every ISK I could. I worked long enough for others, I wanted to be free again. Being my own master, like a true citizen of the Federation.

So I started investing my money on the market. Here it came quite handy, that I often was present, when my previous master made his business transactions. Valuable lessons!

The first billion was the hardest but from there it kinda went by itself.

But I’m not here to boast about myself. I haven’t forgotten my past, where I came from. My previous life that still affects me day for day.

The Federatin gave me a chance that I never had on my home planet. I came from literally nothing, wearing only a nightgown, and went to … let’s say, I won’t ever have to make my hands dirty again.

For that I’m eternal grateful to the Federation and support her with all I have.

In that spirit, my corporations are active in smuggling slaves out of Amarr space. I’m supporting Federation aligned forces with ships and money to help secure our borders. I am a strong supporter of a reunification with the Caldari, to then wipe out slavery once and for all, bringing peace and prosperity to all Empire Space.
During the last decade, I myself and my corporations donated hundreds of billion of ISK to support new capsuleers with ships and equiment. Being main sponsor of events and festivities like this as far back as I can think. Being always truthful and reliant. Helping to spread the spirit of the Federation throughout New Eden.

Therefore I think, I’m this years best candidate and would be honored being your Miss Federation YC126.

If the Federation was a person, then it would be
Anataine Aelia of Deva
Daughter of Feana
Blood of the indomitable Taezali

Thank you for your vote! - Gratias tibi! :green_heart:

Sorry, that went far too long :confused:
Also, those wings suit me… like a phoenix…

Chances are EverMore will launch their rumored “artistic platform” aimed at Capsuleers by that date…
I’ve heard it will allow for making own ship paint designs :thinking:
…right for the ship customization showcase event mentioned in the opening post

I was there for Cieleclat going down, then Rafriules, Acruasau, Chatellerault, and even Qucrain. But wasn’t for Caille. Looking forward to fix this minor inconvenience.

Oh, you could come down with me in Caille if you want.
