  1. This comment may well be rather like my last one... ;)


    Ugh, I don't like Silas Marner much...

    What a relief that Heathcliff is out! But I'm surprised how close it was...

    Phew, Robert Martin sure won by a landslide!

    Three people voted AGAINST Mr. Darcy? Impossible. Surely.

    Oh, I'm sorry Sydney Carton is out...I don't really like Northanger Abbey much. :P

    Close one for Laurie! And go Westley!

    Oh, poor Mr. Bingley. But I suppose it makes sense that a primary Austen character beats a secondary one.

    The rest, I'm pretty happy with. :)

    I'm still getting it into my head that the Hero Tournament is actually finally here! :) Hooray!

  2. Yey! Round 1 results are out! Most of the heroes I voted for got in, so I'm quite happy with them.

  3. I'm very pleased by these results! I am a little sad that Daniel Deronda and Charles Bingley are out of the race but that's okay. Yay for Round 2 coming up!
