Orlando Brian, FYA's Teen OTP Madness tournament was announced yesterday, and now it's time to vote for the couple that'll become the 16th seed in the U.S.S. Devotion bracket!
But first: we have a change to announce that should please some of you wildcard nominators. Eagle-eyed commenter Sabina pointed out that the original 4th seed in U.S.S. Romance, Harry/Hermione, breaks our own non-canon rule -- whoops! (Those JKR interviews must be getting to our heads.) And many of y'all pointed out that OMG WE LEFT OUT ANNE AND GILBERT, who would have totally been a top seed had we not have had a collective brain fart. Opening up the field to non-YA means way too many options to keep track of, which is why we're so lucky to have great readers like y'all to look over our bracket before it's finalized!
With all that being said, Anne/Gilbert (Anne of Green Gables) is the new 4th seed in U.S.S. Romance!
.... which means y'all also don't have to choose between them and one of the wild card candidates! (And this isn't the last we'll see of Harry/Hermione... )
Many great couples were suggested, with the write-in votes being so close that the wild card runners-up def. deserve a shout-out.
Jo/Laurie (Little Women) and Bright/Hannah (Everwood)
AND NOW. FINALLY. Here are the wild card hopefuls!
Lane/Dave (Gilmore Girls) vs. Jess/Joe (Bend It Like Beckham)
Which couple will join Teen OTP Madness? Vote for your fave by Thursday at 11:59pm Central!
UPDATE: Lane/Dave wins!
