Greetings, Champions! With the ending of the first round, I can announce the top MBRC characters who will proceed to the final round! They are: Hunter (117 votes), Westfall (101 votes) , and Madeline…AND HARRISON!
Seriously. You Champions had Madeline and Harrison tie perfectly at 93 votes. Thanks for making me eat my words and bring four characters into the finals instead of three–in the first round no less!
For Round I there was a total of 268 ballots cast for a total of 804 votes. Everyone except for Ed the Boggart (who appeared in one scene, lol) got a minimum of two votes! The honorable mentions after our four finalists are: Asahi (52 votes), Krad (43 votes), Nick and the cyclopses (32 votes), Perseus and his centaur pals (31 votes), and Fran (30 votes). Also, I am ashamed to admit I accidentally skipped Frey–but a few of you Champions reminded me so he did get some votes!
Westfall becoming a finalist was an utter bolt from the blue for me. I really like him–I was quite sad I didn’t get to bring him into the second book more–but I had no idea he had made the sort of impression that would bring him up to number two of MBRC favorites! I was also pleasantly surprised by Hunter’s popularity. The few times I’ve slung him into the Favorite Hero poll he usually comes in at the bottom. I’m really happy that he took first as it means he IS popular, just not as popular as some of my more famous heroes.
Thank you to everyone who voted! It was a fun first round!
Now, it’s time for the Second Round of the “Favorite Secondary Character Poll!” Today’s line up is: King Arthurs and her Knights VERSUS Robyn Hood! As it is with all the heats in this poll, you get to cast your ballot once, but you can vote for up to three characters. This poll will close Thursday, July 13 at 11:59 PM–so you have ONE WEEK to vote!
Choose carefully! The top three characters of this poll will go on to the FINAL ROUND!
