You truly deserve the congrats the gem was well won.
With your enhanced speed of thought, you may reflect on whether you needed the support you had or whether you would have prevailed anyhows.
Professed neutrality is one thing - if a bit of a cop out - but whether you will come to regret the bridges you burned remains to be seen.
Perhaps you will surprise us all and turn on those like sethanor, Saxe et al showing a deft hint of irony.
However, a worthy contender you truly are.
PS: Whatever was in that potion that kept you awake for 24hours lets have a sip.
