What do you think of the results? Were you surprised by any of the polls? Leave a comment! 

Note: Please excuse me. I said that Round 2 would start today, but I'm a little behind and will have to start it tomorrow.

 God Bless,

  1. Results! Let's see...agree with or understand them so far...

    Oh! Mrs. Gowan beat Mr. Elton? Would've thought Elton would definitely win. And Lucy Steele over Mrs. Elton! They are both rather intolerable, but...I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised. I guess it's more the gap that surprises me...a difference of 37 votes!

    UGH, wish it'd been Lady Catherine who won the tie...oh well.

    Cool stuff! Can't wait for the next round. :)

  2. Awwww, Lady Catherine got cut. :(

    This is still really cool, though! Can't wait to see how it pans out!

  3. Wow, William Elliott over Bertha Mason (Rochester)?? A cheater/gambler over a terrifying and insane murderer? I'm a little surprised by that!

    ... Of course, I missed voting in the first round, so it's partly my fault ... :-) I can't wait to vote in the second round and see how it all turns out!!
