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!
Who likes Lancelot??? The others I can sort of understand (although Duke M. Is also a bit weird to me), but I have always disliked Lancelot for his dude-bro womanizing ways.
IMO, Lancelot is one of those characters you love to hate, so I could see voting for him for that. It makes him memorable, at least. xD
Haha, that’s a really good way to put it. Lancelot’s never been my favorite character, for reasons mentioned above.

I <3 King Pellinore! But the other two votes were hard…. I think I need to go reread Robyn Hood now.
I like taking these polls even if it is sometimes hard to decide who to vote for. Have you ever considered doing a favorite villain poll?
Yes, I quite like the ways the different villains were written, sometimes I felt almost bad for the villains…
Like the villain in Swan Lake? I really felt sorry for him towards the end, to my surprise…him, and (switching books) anyone Asher and Aron ganged up on. Though my sympathy for the victims of the twins tended to be tempered with evil glee…
Arghhh! This was SO hard! These two book series are my favorites! Especially Robyn Hood. I can’t wait/I am terrified to see what the results are!
I actually have so many favourite Arthur characters
Didn’t like anyone in Robyn Hood though
Nymue definitely deserves a place at the top, as does Morgan (man, I love those two…). I really liked the fact that the animals got included. This one wasn’t terribly hard for me…but I am dreading the Snow Queen/Red Rope of Fate showdown. Those are my favorites.
I am going to die on that round! Those are also my favorites!
AGGHHH!!! THAT WAS SO HARD!!! I think I needed 5 votes to do all the characters justice, there’s just so many….!!!!
I deeply considered making an exception for this round and giving everyone four votes, but I thought that would make it worse, then, for me to only send three characters forward. 🙁
So many options, so few allotted votes! Dx I can’t tell if it’s a good thing I haven’t read Robyn’s story yet (so my attention isn’t divided from Britt’s people) or a bad thing (because there are probably some wonderful characters from Robyn’s story that I would’ve voted for if I knew them). ^^;;
Yeah, the King Arthurs crew is tough enough to choose from alone. I don’t know that I could pick three of those guys that I love the absolute most, so tip of my hat to everyone who votes!
