MAJOR, MAJOR UPSET on the last round of picks!!!! Brandon won the first bracket and that means… DARCY got benched! (He doesn’t look too happy about it either!)
(My apologies to Marshall Plumlee of Duke who donated his body for this picture. It’s all in the name of Literature.)
However, it doesn’t do to dwell on unpleasantries, we all knew that would be a VERY tough head to head competition, did we not?
Now on to the LADIES Semi!
Who will win between:
- Elinor and Lizzie (I know there are some very strong Elinor fans in this group, so… if you don’t want a total P&P diss… you better vote!)
- Fanny and Emma (Double for Fanny)
- Catherine and Anne (Triple for Anne)
Get your votes in by 6:00 on Sunday. These ladies are counting on you!
The BBC ladies request the pleasure of you to vote.
The results are in for the ladies in for round two.
We may have had a few surprises here (look at the first selection for Emma) but over all not too surprising.
Now things get a little harder as we choose are top favorite for each book in the male category. Are you a Brandon fan or do you pledge your heart to Edward?
Get your picks to me by Sunday at 6:00 pm EST to be counted in the tally.
[Wondering why I picked Austen 13? Brownie points to any one who can guess.)
After an exciting first round in the men’s division it is time to turn our attention to the ladies. Same deal, pick your favorite character from the pairings (you’ll come up with two characters from each book).
Below you’ll find the revised bracket showing the winners for the first round.
[Frankly, we didn’t have a lot of participation on this, but I’m committed to going all the way to the final buzzer on this, so get those votes in. Jane — and I — are counting on you!]
Lastly… Maggie reminded me that Mansfield Park’s Pug was probably a female dog, but, as she had puppies and one of them was surely a male, the bracket stands.
