It's that time of year again, where I cruelly make you choose between beloved characters in a bloody, no holds barred, single elimination tournament. And this being the Fifth (!) Fandom Steel Cage Match March Madness, it's QUARTER QUELL – bigger, badder, bolder. Tears will be shed, capslocks will be abused, flists will be torn apart. Let's do this.
1. Vote for your FAVORITE character in each poll.
2. SHUT YOUR WHINING. I don't want to hear any complaints about how this game is being run wrong – why wasn't this fandom included? why isn't this character in the polls? There's no possible way I can include every single character from every single fandom to please every single person participating in this game, so SHUT IT DOWN.
3. NO FAKE JOURNALS and NO OUTSIDE PLATFORMS (DREAMWIDTH, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, ETC.). Due to previous incidents of ballot stuffing, fake Livejournals created during the dates of this or any previous game OR any platform that isn't Livejournal (Dreamwidth, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) will not be counted in the results. You're free to participate in the comments with them, but don't vote. Don't think I won't take the time to stop the game and count them all myself. I did it last year, I'll do it again. I'M BUYING ALL THE HOT DOGS AND GIVING THEM TO THE GOOD PEOPLE. ETA: PEOPLE ARE CLEARLY IGNORING THIS RULE, DESPITE IT BEING ALL OVER THE FUCKING PAGE, SO NOW I AM JUST BANNING YOUR ASSES.
