Okay, like, that last round? That’s what we meant by TERRIFYING AND BLOODY COMBAT. The BBC Sherlock and Elementary fandoms went AT IT like sworn enemies on prom night, man. We’ve never seen votes turn around that quickly twice in the space of two hours! Where are you people coming from? Is this what Steven Moffat feels like every day of his life? I will admit that I was cheering for the Elementary fandom to win after the initial shock of BBC Sherlock not being in the lead anymore wore off; even though I do not watch Elementary and think the female-asian-american Watson thing to be kind of gimmicky (played by none other than Token Asian Woman Lucy Liu? I mean, come on!) it would have been very interesting for the competition, if one of the guaranteed favorites had been toppled in the first round by a newer fandom. But yeah, in the end? No such luck. CBS Elementary may have owed BBC Sherlock a fall, but we’ve ended Round 1 with Elementary shot in the head on the roof, and BBC Sherlock tumbling off and staring at John wistfully from across the graveyard until
Season 3 Round 2 comes around.
What about the rest of the competition? Well, Buffyverse resoundingly trounced Bones, eliminating that particular aspect of David Boreanaz from the competition. Teen Wolf was losing to Divergent for most of the competition, but overtook the book series in the last few hours of Round 1, part 1. Dexter got eaten up by the Hannibal fandom, Orphan Black lost the battle of the newcomers to Night Vale, Homestuck lost to Adventure Time, and everyone prefers Firefly over Battlestar Galactica. Oh, and the LotR versus Doctor Who? That hurt our feels too, but in the end, LotR was sent back to Valinor on golden ships, and Doctor Who continues to sail on through to the second round.
