But first! I was highly negligent after TQLXXXIX not to introduce two new Quiz Legends! That was the Opera Plots Quiz, in which fingerstothebone took the Blue and Elaine took a Green. In both cases, they assembled a complete set of TQ Stars, thus becoming the 16th and 17th contestants to reach that pinacle of achievement. There accomplishment is forever inscribed in HTML upon the Quiz Leaderboard.
Ninth Season Champions!
Taking her second consecutive season title, it's Mrs.5000. With a Gold, two Silvers, a Blue, and a Green, she put in one of two Legendary performances in this season alone.
Also with five Stars spread across the entire spectrum -- she had a pair of Greens -- la gringissima put in a powerful performance for the season's second spot.
In third place, with three Blues and a Green, its the irrepressible Eversaved!
Honorable mention to Elaine and d, with three Stars apiece, and also to Cartophiliac and Rex Parker, both of whom only collected two Stars this penultimate season -- but made sure they were both Gold ones.
