Persephoneers, I kind of don’t want to tell some of you how last night’s vote turned out. I am totally typing this while wearing a suit of bubble wrap, because I am afraid of how the results are going to go over. Remember, dear Persephoneers, there’s always next year. Also, killing the messenger is so cliche.
Without further ado, let’s get on with it. As soon as I put on this goalie mask.
In YA Sci-fi/Fantasy/Dystopia, Lyra (53%) defeats Eowyn (47%).
In YA Fiction, Harriet (55%) beats Ramona (45%).
In Adult Sci-fi/Fantasy/Dystopia, Vivianne (66%) defeats Susan Sto Helit (34%).
In Adult Fiction, Kate (68%) beats Celie (32%), and I just don’t even.

No more RAMONA?! I’d pound my fist on my desk but… it’s covered with precariously placed papers and hidden highlighters (the alliteration was both accidental and awesome).
Stupid. I’m going to go throw a tantrum and pout.
How did Kate beat Celie? How?
I just don’t understand how Ramona could have possibly lost, and that badly to boot! I mean, in the scheme of this game so far, a 10 point spread seems to be pretty modest, but STILL! RAMONA!
Esmeralda still aten’t dead ;)
I hope she wins! She’s my hero…
TEAM WEATHERWAX REPRESENT! :)
Brilliant! Lyra all the way. How can you *not* love a girl willing to fight and then devotes the rest of her life to studies? The only thing I fear is the inevitable Lyra vs Hermione.
Also, really? Harriet over Ramona? Why? Is it because Harriet is a writer? I just….I don’t understand.
On to current battle!
Katniss forever! Sure, she may not have imagination, or be that brilliant, but she more than makes up for that with introspection and a killer survival instinct. My other favorite is Miss Jessica Darling. I’ll admit it. Seeing her included in the bracket is when I fell for this site.
(I was very pleased Eowyn lost)
Me too. Nothing against Eowyn particularly, but if Lyra had lost I honestly do not think I would have been able to carry on. She’s my pick to win it all. LYRA FTW.
Ceeeeeeeeeelie! Ramoooooooooona! Eowyyyyyyn!
I weep, readers. I thought Ramona was going to the final four, at least.
I cannot believe that Ramona lost.
Et tu, Persephone? Seriously? EOWYN?? SERIOUSLY?
You make my heart bleed.
HOW DID EOWYN LOSE
WHAT IS GOING ON
AM I EVEN ALIVE ANYMORE
Also, sorry, but Jess Darling has my heart, you guys. My whole heart. Except the part that’s dead because EOWYN LOST.
Also, I really don’t know who this Esmerelda Weatherwax person is, but seriously, she cannot die! Hasn’t she been in nearly every poll? And I know she lost at least once!
I accidentally typed Esmerelda’s name when Adora Belle Dearheart got axed. She’s been a tough contender since the beginning. The bracket is always 100% accurate.
By which I mean you can count on the bracket more than my dumb ass. Not that my bracket skills are infallible.
Esme Weatherwax is one of Pratchett’s awesome three witches. She is something of a badass.
She’s awesome, and doesn’t take any crap from anyone ;)
ARE YOU SERIOUS? I mean, last night’s results worked out to my satisfaction entirely. Whatever. BUT HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN JESSICA DARLING AND EMILY STARR? WHAT are you DOING to me?
Wow, I thought Eowyn would make it to the end. SHOCKING!
And I just don’t even. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Seriously? Let me write a character that celebrates the breaking of a woman’s spirit.
