Greetings, Champions! Last week you voted between characters from Beauty and the Beast and Wild Swans. The three winners were: Emele, with an astounding 129 votes–almost double Oliver’s count. Which, as might have guessed, Oliver the stableboy came in second with 69 votes, and–because probability apparently isn’t a thing in these polls–we have a tie for third place between Bernadine the cook and Prince Mikk of Arcainia, both of which had 57 votes!
Nick–Mikk’s twin–just missed making it a three-way-tie as he had 56 votes. The close votes were sorta a theme, though, as the rest of the honorable mentions are: Captain Brida with 50 votes, Heloise the housekeeper with 48, votes, Jock the dog with 47, and Prince Gerhart with 46, and finally Prince Lucien with 42.
Over 230 people cast their ballots, bringing in a total of 695 votes! Thank you to everyone who participated! This was a particularly interesting poll for me, as Emele was a HUGE favorite, but then the votes for all the other top tiers were really close! But on to the next round.
It’s time for the Sixth Round of the “Favorite Secondary Character Poll!” Today’s line up is: Cinderella VERSUS Rumpelstiltskin VERSUS The Little Selkie! As it is with my hero/heroine polls, you get to cast your ballot once, but because these three books are all great favorites, I’m letting you vote for up to four secondary characters. This poll will close 8/10–so you have ONE WEEK to vote!
Choose carefully! The top four secondary characters of this poll will go on to the FINAL ROUND!
