  1. Chauvelin against Rigaud? Nooooo! Not so soon!

    1. Yeah, I was expecting both of them to be in long enough to maybe even be the last two contestants. :(

      I voted for Rigaud, he's quite ruthless and doesn't seem to have a set of rules that he governs his actions by, Chauvelin sort of does.

    2. My thoughts, exactly, Melody! How ever shall we choose between the two most despicable men in literature?!? Well, two of the most. :)

    3. I think that poll wasn't one of the original polls, but because there were two characters from the same story in a poll (which actually happened twice when I was making the polls), the characters got switched and it ended up being Rigaud and Chauvelin. I knew it wasn't going to be good.
