ALICE BRACKET: Round One!

Hello everyone! Thanks for voting in the nominations round. We have now narrowed the field down to 64 competitors. I'm very excited for the rest of the game.

A NOTE: Initially, I thought I would pick the winner of each of the last matches to play in the cage match. But certain fandoms had literally triple or quadruple the votes of some of the others. For that reason, I've decided to do the seeding based on the NUMBER OF VOTES RECEIVED, not the "winner." Below I've listed the players in the Alice Bracket (seed place in parentheses). An asterisk denotes someone who was a "loser" last round but nevertheless, earned enough votes to make the big dance.

Lyra (1)
Alice Cullen (2)
Minerva McGonagall (3)
Matilda Wormwood (4)
Alanna of Trebond (5)
Sophie Hatter (6)
Sabriel (7)
Rachel of Animorphs (8)
Eilowny (9) - * lost to Matilda
Astrid of Rampant(10)
Meggie Folchart (11)
Felicity Worthington (12)
Cassie of Animorphs (13) - *lost to Rachel
Annabeth Chase (14)
Hermione Granger (15) - * lost to McGonagall
Katsa of Graceling (16)

Also, remember you are voting for who you think would be the WINNER of a CAGE MATCH in this round. You are allowed to campaign in the comments, but please keep it civil!

Godgodgod I feel horrible but I voted for Alice to beat Hermione. Just...she can see her moves before she makes 'em, ya know?

Um, except Hermoine is friends with WEREWOLVES (werewolf?) and thus Alice can't see what she's doing also Hermoine has MAGIC and brains and Alice just has a cheerful attitude.

The Quileute aren't really werewolves (just ask them) and even if they were, Lupin's not the same kind. Also, I'm betting nobody asked Lupin to come to this dance. So Alice FTW.

I'd love to vote for Hermione over Alice and I think it would be a close fight but Alice is able to see Bella's future just not when she's actively hanging out with Jacob. Hermione doesn't really hang with Lupin all that often.

But I still hope she wins. lol.

Just because she can see Hermione is about to immobilize her doesn't mean she can do anything about it because she has no magic other than seeing the future.

She CAN move fast and dodge the spell though. But Hermione can put up protective shields and disapparate and thus avoid being caught/killed by Alice. It's basically going to come down to luck so I choose to vote for Hermione :P

Sorry, Annabeth... maybe in a couple of decades you could give Professor McGonagall a challenge, but... not today.

And it pains me to vote against Fee, but, yeah, no way would Alanna lose to her.

Katsa'a grace is survival. And being incredibly deadly in the pursuit thereof. Lyra's terrific, but she doesn't stand a chance in a cage match.

The fact that Katsa's grace is survival means she's PRETTY darn hard to beat in a cage match. I would pick her for the winner of the whole thing if her book was more well-known. I think that's why Lyra is winning?

I feel like Lyra is actually a really good opponent for Katsa, because while Katsa, obviously, is ace at survival, there's canonical evidence for her grace not stopping her from getting her brain scrambled (her reaction to Leck), and that's what Lyra is excellent at. So, if Lyra turns up the bamboozling and distracts her, there's always Pan to take her out. (I wonder if daemons can turn venomous when they assume the shape of something that is?)

Agreed. I mean, Katsa might just win the whole darn thing!

Alice Cullen vs Hermione Granger. Grrrr, that was evil. I love them both, but because I couldn't decide, I chose Alice due to my username... (Despite giving up my like for Twilight ages ago, I haven't bothered to change it.)

Well Hermione is winning by quite a lot, so Alice needs your vote. I blame this on having more HP people on my flist than anything else.

I'm a HP fan too, but like .. gah, it was difficult. I guess it also partly came down to me not quite liking Hermione for some of the time... whereas I love Alice to the max.
