Our last quarter-finals battle puts two strong contenders against each other. Will it be Damon & Elena from The Vampire Daries to move on to the semi-finals or will Castle fans prevail once more and take Castle & Beckett into the slot?

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)!

So far, we have seen Supernatural‘s Dean/Castiel, Sherlock‘s Sherlock/Watson and Merlin‘s Merlin/Arthur beat out Bones‘ Booth/Bones, Game of Thrones‘ Arya/Gendry and How I Met Your Mother‘s Barney/Robin respectively for places in the quarter-finals. After that it was determined that Glee‘s Kurt/Blaine would proceed while Once Upon a Time‘s Emma/Regina left the competition.

The fifth round was won by a landslide by Doctor Who‘s Rose and the 10th Doctor, leaving The Big Bang Theory‘s Leonard and Penny in the dust. The sixth battle was a close one! But in the end, it was Avatar who won, winning the spot against Downton Abbey in the finals. And in our last battle, Sterek fans won by a landslide against New Girl‘s Jess & Nick, taking Teen Wolf into the semi-finals to battle the winner of this round.

Now it’s Castle vs The Vampire Diaries on our eighth BattleShips quarter-final! Castle/Beckett and Damon/Elena have been chosen by the readers to represent their respective fandoms, but which couple can gather the most support?! It’s time to find out. So cast your vote below, and be sure you share the link with all your fandom friends – we’re sure they want the chance to support their ship of choice, too!

      Amen!! <3

    Delena all the way!! Best ship to ever exist XD

    • amanda

      Amen. <3

  • Celia

    I am predicting Sherlock/Watson and Rose/10 in the final round. No clue who would win though.

  • Kristen Kranz

    Come on TVD fans, we can totally do this! Delena all the way!

  • rocio

    castle y beckett desde españa

  • http://www.facebook.com/quinn.kelly.90 Quinn Kelly

    Castle and Beckett. Elena and Damon arent even a couple. Stefan and Elena will end up together in the end.

    • Louise

      You’ll find that when it comes to shipping, how canon a couple is matters little. Sometimes it’s better that way ;)

      • http://twitter.com/sakurablossom94 MT

        Except for this case. Castle and Beckett are even more amazing together than they are apart

  • Alexys

    Caskett all the way.

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

    I had to go with Damon/Elena. I mean obviously!

    • http://twitter.com/MrsAriSalvatore Ari Kiara

      I was going to vote for no one but after tonight I am SO DELENA. Stelena finally broke up and she FINALLY admitted her feelings for Damon so DELENA FTW!!

    • BronzeSparks123

      Tonight’s episode was a perfect example of why they will/need to end up together :)

  • CasKett

    CasKett (Always)

  • Phantomfluteplayer

    Caskett – they officially became canon this season!

  • Erin

    Castle and Beckett everyone come on! :D

  • Ninaa


  • Amelia-Jayne

    Come on Caskett fans! xD

  • charlton

    Castle/Beckett,but that’s probably due to Nathon Fillian.He should be the Cap’n of his own ship…..any followers?

    • Musician

      Since I’m pretty sure you mean ship in the punny way and the Captain Reynolds way…

      Bwahahahahahahahahaha! You’re funny.

  • PIPA


  • scottie

    Caskett forever! :)

  • Lucy

    I’m voting Delena (would have preferred Klaroline) However I predict a Destiel/Sterek final

  • trishie

    Castle and Beckett!

  • http://twitter.com/NatashaPeartree Natasha Pereira

    Thiiiiiiiissss is gunna be interesting! Especially when either one of these ships does battle against Dr. Who

    • http://profiles.google.com/gfludal gfludal

      Confident in your ship I see. The battle against Kataang is non-existent?

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

        A lot of peeved Zutara shippers will probably vote for Rose/10 just so Kataang will lose. Kataang isn’t just competing against Dr.Who, it is competing against bunch of angry fangirls. As much as I love Kataang, I don’t think it can win the next round.

  • TVDfan

    how is DELENA not winning this hands down?!?

    • Nina

      because there is a surprising about of support for caskett AND SE shippers will vote for caskett just so DE will lose

    • Meg

      Also, Caskett JUST got together after four years of waiting for it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/maria.ferreira.52035 Maria Ferreira

      Eh, because the majority prefers Castle and Beckett?!

      • Katie

        it’s clearly not the majority, it has been 50/50 for like 12 hours

        • Gary65

          Yeah there was a half hour there where they were only separated by 4 votes and DE was winning.

        • http://www.facebook.com/maria.ferreira.52035 Maria Ferreira

          Well, like in any poll, 1 vote makes the difference…

    • austin

      sorry … caskett

  • Jen_Lamoureux

    This by far is the hardest ship for me to chose between!! I love me some Delena but I have been waiting for Caskett to happen FOREVER and now that it has happened I can’t get enough.

  • Delena 4ever

    Damon Elena FTW we can still do this!!!!

  • Phoebe

    VOTE DAMON/ELENA! They are so great together (not to mention super hot) xD

  • Maple Leaf

    Just because you’re a TVD fan doesn’t mean you have to pick Delena. I picked Castle/Beckett because I don’t like Delena, like at all. I barely like Elena as it is.

  • Cláudia

    Caskett OF COURSE !

        If you don’t like Caskett, you are fucking stupid

        • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

          Woah, settle down, Teresa. Someone is making herself look “stupid” and it’s not me. Recognize a playful joke when it is in front of you. Don’t make it personal.

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

          Actually if you don’t like Caskett, you just don’t like casket. Shipping reference does not equal stupidity.

        • http://www.facebook.com/maria.ferreira.52035 Maria Ferreira

          As much as I love Caskett, and I do, a person who doesn´t isn´t stupid…she only has an opinion different from mine:)

        • Gary65

          What are you doing here Ms. Giudice? And why are you off your Xanax?

      • MESSI

        FUCK YOU !

          Wow. It’s hilarious that my dislike for Caskett elicits such intense emotions in you. Hm…interesting…

          • Tatiana

            OMG !!!! Go Away…don’t u have something better to do?!?!?

        When I read this I felt like Beckett when Castle dissed Nebula 9

        • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

          lol Secret: I actually watched Castle up until this current season. :)

      • amanda

        hahahahaha I love youu

    • http://www.facebook.com/ellen.speybrouck Ellen Speybrouck


  • Katie

    Caskett has an advantage on Delena in that they don’t have a competing ship on their show. While Caskett does has a ton of it’s own fans, they also get the Stelena shippers voting for them out of spite :p

  • http://twitter.com/BilliamAnderson Bill Anderson


    • roach

      Only 14.1 million + the rest of the world. I know HEAPS of people watch it here in NZ

    C’mon Delena!! I haven’t shipped anyone as much as them since Veronica Mars was on tv. LoVe <333

  • Phantomfluteplayer

    K, this is going to be a tight race. Come on Caskett fans! We can do this!

  • sdfoidfsohfsfjs


  • xoxoKellyLee

    So close! Delena for the win!

  • Mamathaprem

    I vil vote for Damon/Elena, love them :)

  • Dana


  • http://www.facebook.com/lilliempeterson Lillie Marie Peterson


  • http://twitter.com/xhpfanatic Grace Chen


  • http://twitter.com/JenBlaze78 Jen

    Caskett FTW! As much as I enjoy Delena, that ship is frustrating as all get out! Whereas with Caskett there’s no question they’re canon and endgame and to just sit back and enjoy watching this beautiful romance unfold is SUCH a relief compared to the constant ebb & flow of Delena and Elena taking FOREVER to act on her feelings for Damon! Anyways, I love BOTH couples but Caskett is my dream romance and gets bonus points for the stress-free aspect.

    Oh…and to the person who was being catty and asked who watches Castle? Try 14.1 million viewers! The show appeals to a much broader audience whereas TVD appeals to a majority of younger viewers, so your insult is a moot point. Try again.

    • Roach38

      Well said :) I am in New Zealand and know heaps of people who absolutely LOVE Castle. They are the best couple on TV hands down imo

    • Dana

      The audiences to which these shows appeal is anything but a moot point in this situation. This competition is about which fandom has more “shipping support.” and castle’s 14 million doesn’t seem to have much of a lead over TVD’s 2.5/3 million viewers.

      • http://twitter.com/JenBlaze78 Jen

        If you’d read my post, I wasn’t addressing YOU, I was addressing the idiot who asked “who watches Castle?” as if it were an insult. I understand this competition, Dana, & I’m not at all surprised that the majority of the people voting here are of the younger generation and will choose TVD. No skin off my back. And you’ve even proven my point, that Castle has a MUCH larger viewership and crosses generational gaps which is amazing for a procedural. So, thank you for that. :-)

  • Mireilla Castle

    Caskett Forever… ALWAYS!

  • http://twitter.com/RidAsh28 Rida Ashfaq

    Haha, its 50/50 right now. Elena needs to die…. but Damon needs to be happy – so Delena!!
