Possibly one of the most intense battles we’ve seen so far, it’s time to choose whether you prefer Arya & Gendry from Game of Thrones or Sherlock & Watson from Sherlock as your preferred OTP!

What’s going on?

Over the past month and continuing for another three weeks is Hypable’s BattleShips, a tournament where we pit fandom against fandom to see which relationship on television has the most support. It’s all about the chemistry between two characters and the love you have for them, so rally your friends to help support your One True Pairing (OTP)!

If you’d like to know more about our BattleShips Tournament then we recommend checking out the announcement post, or posting your questions in the comments below

Who did you vote for?

  • Jason

    Arya and Gendry never had a chance.

  • Gary65

    GOO UNITE!!!!!

  • http://www.eigakanthemovietheater.blogspot.com Jenny Leigh

    Whyyyyy would they do this to Arya and Gendry??

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      The fight isn’t over yet! I’m sure Gendarya shippers can find the community they need to give Sherlock a good run.

      • belac889

        No offence, but GoT is going to get creamed

        • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

          Well it looks like GoT is catching up!

          • http://www.eigakanthemovietheater.blogspot.com Jenny Leigh

            Yes! 45/55 WE CAN DO IT!

        • http://twitter.com/G30rg13_R Georgie R

          Agreed. I think if I actually watched GoT I might pick them, but Sherlock rocks so…

  • antonia31

    This pairing in the first round is just really unfortunate. GoT has a huge following and would do really well in this contest if it weren’t matched up initially against Sherlock.

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      It was randomized, but I’m seeing quite the fight from GoT fans so that’s what’ll make this so interesting. You can never really count a fandom out just because you think they’ll lose!

      Plus, I’m glad it turned out like this than Sherlock against Avatar or HIMYM. It’s way, way more interesting.

  • Shelby Walker

    Arya and Gendry! Come on! Let’s get this done!!

  • http://twitter.com/Mithranda Miranda van Gelder

    I think the only way Sherlock might loose is if they were matched against the Tenth Doctor and Rose…

    • Melody

      Or Destiel or Sterek, considering how AfterElton’s poll turned out xD

  • Eliza


  • Kurokirisu

    Where are the Avengers ship(s)?

    • http://twitter.com/SarahKHansen S.K.Hansen

      This round of Battle Ships is for TV shows. They haven’t done movies or books yet.

  • http://hypable.com Selina

    Arya/Gendry doesn’t stand a chance but they still get my vote!

    • http://www.eigakanthemovietheater.blogspot.com Jenny Leigh

      I think because you write for Hypable, your vote should count for 5!

      • http://hypable.com Selina

        Hahaha I agree ;) Although unless it counted for 500 I don’t think it’d make a difference!

  • charlton

    Oh come on,where are the GoT followers?

  • PrincessMerida

    once upon a time vs glee? That’s so hard!

  • martina

    Arya&Gendry!!! COME ON!!!

  • Gary65

    COME ON GUYS!!!! It’s only been a few hours and we’ve closed the gap by 11%. We just need another 2 heaves and we’re even before we lead the main attack!!! IF ANYONE LEAVES THIS PAGE WITH A CLEAN BALLOT, I’LL RAPE THEIR I.S.P!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/lars.berg.965 Lars Berg

    WHY Arya and Gendry? I would vote for game of thrones, I adore it, but they’re children. Tyrion + anyone <3

  • WillaOakes22

    Johnlock forever!!!!! <3

  • Elphaba Thropp

    That’s incredibly easy.

    *clicks Sherlock*

  • Jen

    well I don’t like Arya & Gendry pairing so… meh.

  • http://twitter.com/AsiaAAhmed Asia A Ahmed

    Sherlock !!! Wohoo! GoT followers should just give up ..

  • Voter


  • Mangollama

    Gendra x

  • antonia31

    Someone should post this on the Westeros forums! I would, but I’ve never actually posted anything so they’d probs think I was a troll.

    We can make a comeback, like the Snow Queen incident!

    • Jen

      Yeah, I don’t think this ship would get a great reception either.

  • http://twitter.com/acjub CK

    Sherlock and John, hands down!

  • ncnapper92

    Gendrya! For the votes are dark and full of less realistic shipping.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ivan.quetuquiere Ivan Espinal

    I love GoT but honestly Arya/Gendry is not a good ship and they should have picked something a lot better.

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      You could have voted for the one you preferred! This is all user-created. :)

  • http://xyue-mayx.deviantart.com/ Dreamer

    Some fandoms just don’t stand a chance… which is too bad because they really do have a great following, it’s just that the other fandom has a crazier one. Arya and Gendry are putting up a good fight though!

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      It’s always interesting to see if the underdog will win it out though!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001034209529 Lauren Dipple

    i love both of these shows but if you look at the actual interactions between the characters there is no doubt that Arya and Gendry are the better pairing!:D

  • Idril

    oh come on Game of Thrones fans!!! we can do this!!!!

  • RussellTurner


  • Nath

    Gendrya ~

  • Dr.J.H. Watson

    Johnlock!!! The one and only bromance^^

  • cynthiacaridad

    Sherlock + Watson!!!!

  • blah

    how is it fair that they put Sherlock with GoT on the first round -___- this has been rigged from the beginning.

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      It was actually completely randomized.

  • macattack

    Johnlock and Destiel going head to head….yikes.

    • ThisOne

      The claws will come out. If a victor emerges, he shall be mortally wounded.

  • Eliza

    Is anyone else watching this surge of Sherlock votes? It’s like 2 new votes every 10 seconds… ?

    • grace

      someone promoted it on tumblr

  • Syrio Forel

    What do we say to the Johnlock shippers? Not today.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=646371872 Elizabeth Lee Hammons

      Bless you sir, bless you.

  • Adriana

    My votes for Gendrya, but they have little hope against Johnlock. :(

  • sy

    Klaine vs Merlin/Arthur vs Robin/Barney? Really? :/

    • Gary65

      They were gonna have to face off eventually.

  • Idril

    Im checking this site every 5 minutes like a mad person! I know there is more GoT and Gendrya fans than this!!! Come one guys!!! Someone post this on twitter. I’m littering my tumblr with it! IDK WHAT ELSE TO DO!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=652131824 Jared Paul Wegenast

    Sherlock, hands down.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Skarowan Anna Sanada

    Vote for Arya&Gendry! Srsly! JUST DO IT!

  • Carol

    Am I the only one thinking that if SwanQueen can win against Klaine it will be able to win the rest of the poll? ’cause I really think that these are the strongests ships here….

  • Jenny

    Oh man. Destiel vs Johnlock. Thats gonna be a close call. They both have tons of fans.

  • Mayra

    I don’t know, I love Arya and Gendry as much as the next GOT/ASOIAF fan, but it’s kinda creepy, considering the age difference.

    And regarding that Who pairing, I totally would have chosen Ten and Donna instead. I guess this is just supposed to be romantic pairings…?

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      This is actually all user-voted on. We had preliminary rounds for each of these fandoms, which is where Rose/10 was voted for.

      • Mayra

        Ah well, there you go. I didn’t know that. Thanks!

  • http://twitter.com/beccithenerd Rebecca Hurst

    Gendry/Arya come on people!

  • Jacob

    I hate how it thinks I voted already. Especially that it thinks I voted for Sherlock and Watson.

  • Izzy

    gendry&arya gendry&arya gendry&arya gendry&arya gendry&arya

  • http://twitter.com/Tran_Nagwaian Tran Nguyen

    Why put these two together :( I know it’s random, and I love Johnlock’s bromance, but Arya/Gendry is awesome.

  • Jess

    GENDRY/ARYA!!!! <3<3<3

  • WC

    when does this poll close (sherlock v GoT)??

  • thatscraaaazy


  • dornishthunder

    We need a miracle right now. Anyone like to play the role of Renly’s ghost? If we get all those lords to switch to our side, we might have enough votes. Rally the banners!

  • Katie

    Where is Eleven x River. Lame.

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      They lost out to Rose/10. :(

  • http://www.facebook.com/prodip.mitra Prodip Mitra

    GOT does not really present a solid ‘Ship’ because of RR Martin’s geographic separation of the main characters.

    • Kate

      It’s based entirely on the television show. Though I ship Arya/Gendry more in the books than the show because the age difference in the books is only about 4 years…When I ship Arya/Gendry on the show it is entirely as best buddies, partners in crime.

  • Charles

    Arya/Gendry is one of my, if not my most, least favorite pairing in ASoIaF. Wheres the Jon Snow and Ygritte?

  • Alyssa

    Johnlock no doubt!

  • Hugo Weasley

    wish I could vote for both. I cant even choose, so I just wont…

  • charlton

    Arya/Gendry,Come on GoT fans I know your out there.

  • Jess

    I’m confused by this whole battle thing. Shouldn’t the couples in all of these contests be actually canon instead of ships that people want to be? Like Sterek and Destiel are not canon but are still in the running. Can someone explain to me the rules of how the couples were chosen because I’m confused? Was it limited to strictly canon and if so how did all of this fanon ships get in?

    • Jack

      All the pairings on here were voted on before the contest started. They had preliminary rounds for each of the fandoms, and the winners of those were put on here. It has nothing to do with “canon”.

  • WhatTheGrace

    Gendrya always!

  • Mariel

    i don’t even remember Gendry and Arya being a couple…anyone want to help me out?

  • http://www.eigakanthemovietheater.blogspot.com Jenny Leigh

    GOT Fans, we were so close!! Sad day, but awesome work :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sophiane-Bengeloun/563264076 Sophiane Bengeloun

    I vote for Gendrya!

  • http://twitter.com/snowscurls Ylva.

    As much as I love both fandoms, my vote gotta go for Sherlock/John!

  • denni

    oh no, dean&cas vs Sherlock&John? They’re both very popular and would both do so well…

  • http://twitter.com/Yorlenisama Nine Lifetimes

    Gendry/Arya !!

  • maleah
