Let the semi-finals of BattleShips begin! In our first match-up we have Dean & Castiel from Supernatural and Sherlock & Watson from Sherlock. Which will win the battle and go off to the finals? Vote for your favorite!

What’s going on?

Over the past month and continuing for another two 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)!

We’ve now gathered eight pairs to battle it out onto our final rounds, and they’ve been giving us surprise results! So far the tightest battle we’ve had, believe it or not, has been the latest one with the Vampire Diaries and Castle, constantly flip-flopping until The Vampire Diares was finally announced the winner. We also had a vicious battle between fans of Glee & Once Upon A Time, as well as Avatar & Downton Abbey. In those two it was decided by the voters that Glee and Avatar will also continue to the final rounds. Also in your finals rounds are couples from Merlin, Doctor Who, and Teen Wolf.

Now it’s time to gather your top four ships for the final rounds, so rally up your friends on Tumble, Twitter, and Facebook to make sure that your ship wins. Our quarter-finals proved that all of these fandoms are immensely popular, so which ones will make it through? We have no idea, but we’re excited to see it play out!

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.

  • azileea

    I’m not gonna vote since I haven’t watched SPN (yet!) and I feel that I’m gonna love the show. As for JohnLock, I don’t really ship it that hard. I love them as characters and appreciate their bromance. I should watch Sherlock again. Maybe I start shipping them. I could vote for them but I’m gonna let you decide this one! (Just wait Kurt/Blaine vs. Merlin/Arthur… ;P)

  • sobabycarpediem

    Destiel vs. Johnlock
    *runs and hides in the corner*

    This is going to be interesting.

  • Gary65

    NNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGYYYYYYEEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! After last night’s ep of TVD, DE so deserved to win. That has to be one of the closest shipping battles ever!!! Was more pumped in that than I was for Klaine/SwanQueen. I knew we’d pull it out in the end :D

  • sobabycarpediem

    It had to happen at some point.

  • http://twitter.com/notenoughpuff Sarah

    Well THIS is going to be a bloodbath.

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

      Bloodbath indeed.

  • http://hypable.com Selina

    Eee Delena won, how exciting!

    I’m so curious for this battle. I hope all you shippers rally the Tumblr troops for this one, because both sides are gonna need it!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=605784922 Kristen Wilhoit

    I knew this day would come, but I’m still not ready for it! These are definitely my top two ships of all time! Pretty sure Johnlock with have it, but Destiel has given me sooooo many feels, especially this week, that I gave my vote to them. Ugh I love them both too much.

  • Jenny

    How long will each poll last in this round?

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

      48 hours!

  • isenhobbitz

    Whoever wins this round I will support till the end. I’m really sad my two favorite ships are pitted against each other this early. *sobs*

  • Ginny2610

    Sherlock!!! Because I am sherlocked! :D

  • Arianna

    As much as I love Destiel, I can’t help but choose Johnlock. The only ships that can make me bawl like Johnlock is 10/Rose, so..

    • Arianna


  • Ailbhe

    Am I the only person who watches Sherlock and doesn’t ship Sherlock and John? Sometimes I feel like I’m a complete anomaly in the fandom.

    • Mystrade Shipper

      There are plenty of people who don’t. It just does happen to be the biggest sailed ship of the show.

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

        Haha, yes. I totally agree!

    • Lucy

      You’re not the only one. We do exist, although we are few.

    • http://www.hypable.com/author/lauracristiano/ LauraBC

      I don’t really ship them either, but I do think they have the best chemistry on the show. I’ve tried to read Sherlolly and it just falls flat for me. Sherlock/Irene is good though

      • Meh

        You must have been reading some really crappy fanfiction if you think Sherlolly falls flat. Sherlock/Irene seems good because of all the sexual tension, but it’s just that. Sexual tension. No trust, no real friendship. I think that’s what really falls flat. If you’re just looking for the superficial hotness in a story, then I could see why Sherlock/Irene appeals for you. But a relationship where neither party could trust the other is, essentially, flat.

    • TannieCreys

      I really think the romantic parts are made by Moffat/Gatiss as just jokes/gags. I take it for what it is, a little teasing. That they’re friends I don’t doubt. Nor that they are very close, love each other and care for each other, and that their friendship is an unusual one. But all I can see is the story showing me they’re platonic. So no, you’re not alone.

      I watch both Sherlock and Supernatural and to me the difference between Johnlock and Destiel is very clear. Just my humble opinion of course.

    • Musician

      No, you’re not. I’m with you. But I voted for them anyway, because their relationship, platonic or not, is pretty amazing.

  • http://mrsreidstartedposting.tumblr.com/ Loony

    Why. Just. Why.

  • Scarlett

    Why did you write Sherlock/Watson? It should be Sherlock/John.

  • http://twitter.com/netholor Kristin

    Alright, I’m taking a break. After crusading for Delena on tumblr for two days straight I’m gonna sit back and just watch these next ones happen. So happy with that win though :D and next week we will battle again with Sterek! TEAM DELENA FTW!

  • Nina

    This was a tough choice cuz while I love me some Sherlock I’m just getting in to Supernatural…

    I’m still kind of bitter about Gendrya losing though, so Destiel it is :p

  • Grace

    I swear, no matter how many times I have refreshed this page and opened it in a new tab or window, it will NOT let me vote x_X

  • ravenclaw1991

    JOHNLOCK!! I don’t really ship it, but I don’t watch Supernatural. So yeah..

  • all my creys


  • Louise

    DESTIEL <3

  • Melody

    Well here we go: it’s the AfterElton semifinals of Destiel v. Johnlock all over again xD

  • Clarisse

    Destiel. It’s kind of hard to perceive their relationship as anything other than romantic at this point. I love that no matter how much pain and betrayal passes between them, they will always find reasons to forgive each other and accept the other as he is. In short, they make each other better and have proven time and time again that they would rather die than allow heaven, Earth, purgatory, or hell separate them.

        It’s the same with Sherlock. Death will not part John and Sherlock

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rachel-Gomoll/100000301670007 Rachel Gomoll

          … Cas and Dean have died several times already and they’re still totally bromancing and don’t even realize it

          • http://www.facebook.com/alysia.dugan Alysia Dugan

            Hate to say it, but true Sherlock Holmes fans know that Johnlock has been a thing for over 100 years. It doesn’t matter how many times Dean and Cas die, Johnlock will always outlive them.

          • http://www.facebook.com/robin.vanderzijden Robin van der Zijden

            I find it hard to believe that people started shipping slash couples before the 21st century… Our open mindedness in relation to this is something from this generation. Though older generations may accept it, they do not very often participate in shipping pairings that are not explicitly said to be a couple by the writer in the first place.

        • http://twitter.com/TheBlackBot Black Bot

          Weak comparison

          • Maddie Hatter

            Well, the only reason Cas & Dean have died several times already is because the Supernatural universe allows it. Sherlock takes place in a realistic universe, so they don’t exactly have the option of dying over and over and not letting hell/purgatory/whatever separate them. Considering that it’s supposed to be realistic, Sherlock falling and “dying” to save John is as close as we can possibly get, so it’s not so bad a comparison

          • http://twitter.com/TheBlackBot Black Bot

            No, it’s a weak comparison because Castiel has rebelled against god and killed his own brothers in order to save Dean. In the words of Castiel, “I killed two angels this week. My brothers. I’m hunted. I rebelled and I did it — all of it — for you.” Neither Sherlock or John have done something on this level.

          • Lynn

            They had. John risked a lot for Sherlock, and vice versa. I love both, but I’ll have to stick with Johnlock.

          • http://twitter.com/nonaysiomaii928 Wynona de la Calzada

            YEP, BLOODBATH

          • Bianca

            ‘Risking a lot’ isn’t really the same as giving up everything you’ve known for billions of years and fighting and killing your family for him. It’s not really the same as immediately trusting him and being unable to take your eyes off him even if you don’t remember him at all. It’s not the same as the memories you regain all being connected to him. It’s not the same as you needing help, but ending up accepting an enemies help rather than ask him because you can’t bring yourself to disturb what little peace he found. It’s not the same as him preferring to be dead with you over being alive without you.

  • RussellTurner

    Let’s go Sherlock fans!!! Too close, yet!

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

    I am surprised this is so close!

  • Elphaba Thropp

    Come on, Johnlock!!

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

    Although who in their right mind can forget all the Destiel feels from this weeks episode.

  • lexy

    This is brilliant though because if Destiel wins itll prove again to the writers of the show that the fans do love their relationship and theyll continue to show it in the series :) As much as I LOVE the other pairings this might actually have a continued effect on the show :)

    • http://twitter.com/Beth_Minervino Bethany Minervino

      I don’t think winning this one poll’s gonna ‘prove’ anything, more than the positive feedback Dean and Cas’ dynamic already does. :) The more often good fans respectfully praise it and request it, the more readily the show creators will consider and contribute to it. But this isn’t about proof, I don’t think. It’s about fun! :D

  • penisrub

    i have a feeling it’s ganna be sterek vs destiel like at the afterelton one


    Come on fellow SHER-LOCKED fans! We can take em’!

  • http://twitter.com/AntaraC Antara Chowdhury

    Woohoo, my campaigning all over the interwebs is working. Destiel is now in the lead.

    • Sher-Locked

      Not for long………..

  • http://twitter.com/no_soul_to_sell [Insert Name]


  • http://twitter.com/aallssii1 Sigrid Daae Alstad

    Vote for Sherlock! Pleeease.

  • BH

    Destiel 4evr <3

  • nope


  • kfaye

    I feel like I am literally the only member of the SPNFamily that doesn’t ship Dean/Castiel. From the beginning, I have only seen them as loyal friends with a serious bromance, but all of a sudden every pair of close guy friends has turned into something romantic in the ship-world. Sherlock/Watson, Dean/Castiel, Sam/Dean (which is gross, they are brothers), Stiles/Derek, etc. I feel like I’m the only one who ships relationships that could actually happen on the show!

    I did vote for Destiel though, because no matter what, I always go Team Freewill. <3

    • http://twitter.com/Beth_Minervino Bethany Minervino

      They definitely are best of friends, which is part of the reason those who see them as romantic love their relationship, so much. :) Either way, it’s strong, real, and good.

    • Ev42

      I fluctuate. Sometimes I ship them harder than LIFE, but usually it’s more of a Most Epic Bromance thing for me… I can definitely see WHY people ship them, though, with their history and interaction.

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      LOL I’m on the same boat as you. But well, at least under this contest, the ship doesn’t necessarily have to be romantic but reflective of the chemistry and history between the two.

  • http://www.youtube.com/mapthestars Mapthestars

    Ok, Why is Sherlock and Watson not in the lead here?

    • http://twitter.com/spideywat Loki Laufeyson

      Because Destiel, that’s why.

  • Dorothy

    Why on earth does it say “Sherlock/Watson” instead of “Sherlock/John”? They don’t call each other by their last names on the show, just in the canon.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Li.Milagros Limiko Fernandez Carriedo

  • notmonday

    Urghhhhhhh this is awful. I haven’t actually watched Supernatural but I love seeing all the posts about it on my dash and Destiel is beautiful. HOWEVER I have cried over Sherlock so much and I’m so in love with my babies that I have to vote for Johnlock.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rachel-Gomoll/100000301670007 Rachel Gomoll

    This is nerve wrecking for me, being fans of both shows. Of course, I’m fairly certain a good amount of us feel this way too and it’s not just me…

  • Grace

    Everytime I time this poll, a different couple is ahead xD

  • http://www.facebook.com/robin.vanderzijden Robin van der Zijden

    Yay :D Destiel. When will this poll be closing?

  • destiel pls

    i am cry if destiel doesnt win

  • cas

    i can’t vote no nope no way

    • destiel destiel destiel

      vote destiel omg please

  • al

    destiel! sherlock is wonderful but i’m in the supernatural fandom by way more time

  • http://twitter.com/TheBlackBot Black Bot

    I don’t see how you could vote for Johnlock over Destiel. Castiel died for Dean. Twice! He gave up everything for him, and rebelled against god and heaven.

  • olivia

    dont you guys remember the alterelton polls WHY DID SOMEONE THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA!!!!!!

  • Lenka

    Dean and Castiel, ALWAYS.

  • sweetscoundrel

    JOHNLOCK. Not that I don’t love Dean and Castiel but Sherlock is just a better show and a better ship.

  • sofia

    DESTIEL. FOREVER. I swear to chuck they better WIN THIS THING. <3

  • Mithranda

    I’ve seen Supernatural and I really, really don’t understand the fuzz about Dean and Castiel… They don’t even… I really don’t understand, I’m sorry. Sherlock and John though…. fire is crackling there! :)

  • Lauren


  • Maddie Hatter

    Funny, I had assumed this would be a not-too-difficult win for Johnlock (based off the numbers in the previous rounds)… but then I show up and Destiel’s winning by 400 votes? Even though I voted Johnlock, hats off to you, Supernatural

    • Ev42

      The Supernatural fandom does know how rally up votes… I think they ended up with some 250,000 votes for Destiel during the AfterElton final (they didn’t even win, but I say points for effort :P), it was a crazy number, though Misha Collins did tweet about it, bringing it the attention of his devoted minions, & we are FIERCE in battle ;)

  • Rannthefighter


  • Minion

    I don’t watch Sherlock, but I have nothing but love for the pairing and their fans and wish them luck…but I do watch Supernatural and DESTIEL!!! I love those two almost as passionately as they love each other. :)
    This will be an easy vote for me all the way through…unless Destiel and Sterek end up battling against each other again and then it will get tough.

  • http://twitter.com/acjub CK

    I love Cas/Dean, but Sherlock and John is just so damn right! <3

  • 222

    Johnlock vs Destiel? Ohhh…. That’s just mean to make us choose like that..

  • http://www.facebook.com/alysia.dugan Alysia Dugan

    You know what I really love about this whole thing? The slash and femslash is getting a lot of love. I know about my pockets of slash lovers on the interwebs, but it’s nice to see it’s so prevalent and widely supported.

  • Jenny

    Why hypable, WHY?!?! Its not fair, these two have such loyal shippers. Now I have to choose between my OTPs.

    • Gary65

      That is kind of the point, isn’t it?

  • seiharu

    Dean/Castiel . Destiel . All the way.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maria-Wang/542480760 Maria Wang

    I don’t ship Sherlock/John, but I have to vote for them! It’s a crime not to vote for Sherlock. And…I don’t watch Supernatural so. GO Sherlock!

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

    Destiel it is I guess. I LOVE Sherlock to death but I never saw/understood Johnlock.

  • Nargles

    I voted every single time in the first round, and lost every single time. Damn democracy.

  • Lauren

    NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Johnlock MUST win!

  • http://www.facebook.com/dercy.delacruz Dercy De La Cruz

    Gah, my two ships. How can I choose just one!! x.x

  • Jess

    i can’t choose! D:

  • Carissa

    So happy Delena won <3

  • http://www.facebook.com/chelseamorganjohnson Chelsea Jay

    Why do I have a feeling this is going to end like AfterElton’s poll?

  • Shelby

    Can I just say how horrible this is?? I’ve come here from tumblr and just no. Personally, I vote for Johnlock because I love BBC Sherlock a bit too much and I find Supernatural boring, but that’s my opinion. I’m not part of the Supernatural fandom, but I have friends who are in both and this would kill them. Destiel isn’t *fully* canon yet–don’t even try to deny it, unless it’s been stated explicitly, it’s not canon–and Gatiss/Moffat are queerbaiters as much as I hate to admit it. I ship Johnlock so hard it hurts, and even Martin and Benedict allude to their own shipping of Johnlock, but realistically, there’s only a 30% chance that it will become canon, although Johnlock has been shipped from the time the books originated, what, over a hundred years ago? So, I’m still siding with Johnlock. And please, don’t demean the other ship. This is going to be a bloodbath either way, but please, please don’t hate one another. The facts are the facts, and do you know how hard it is for someone who ships both? Just be nice about everything, okay?

    • http://twitter.com/AntaraC Antara Chowdhury

      I haven’t seen any hate on here…

    • eaksoy

      Dude there’s like no hate here. People are just defending what they ship. Relax.

  • Katey


  • Phoebe


  • Wolf

    I am a huge fan of both Supernatural and Sherlock, and their main ships, but I had to choose Sherlock and John, because in just two seasons we get this:


    “Oh, your a friend of Sherlock’s? I’ll get you a nice romantic candle; mood lighting!” — “You don’t have a girlfriend, then?” “Girlfriend? No, not really my area.” “Oh, right then [pause] Do you have a boyfriend? Which is fine, by the way-” “I know it’s fine.” “So you’ve got a boyfriend?” “No.” “Right, okay. You’re unattached. Just like me. Fine. Good.” “…John, um… I think you should know that I consider myself married to my work, and while I’m flattered, I’m-” “No-” “-really not looking for anyone-” “No, I’m not asking- no. I was just saying. It’s all fine.” “…Good. Thank you.” — “And since yesterday, you’ve moved in with him and you’ve started solving crimes together. Might we expect a happy announcement by the end of the week?” — “There’s another bedroom upstairs, if you’ll be needing two rooms.” “Of course we’ll be needing two rooms.” “Oh, don’t worry. We’ve all sorts around here. Mrs. Turner next door’s got married ones.” — “I need to get some air. We’re going out tonight.” “I’ve got a date.” “What?” “It’s when two people who like each other go out and have fun.” “That’s what I was suggesting.” “No, it wasn’t. At least, I hope not.” — “I’m so glad no one saw that.” “Hmm?” “You, ripping my clothes off in a darkened swimming pool. People might talk.” “People do little else.” — *Sherlock is wrapped in a sheet. John looks at his lap* “Are you wearing any pants?” “…No.” “Okay.” — “And somebody love you… oh, if I had to punch that face, I’d avoid your nose and teeth, too.” — “Mr. Archer, at the count of three, shoot Doctor Watson.” “What?” “I don’t know the code.” “One!” “I don’t know the code.” “Two!” “She didn’t tell me. I don’t know it!” “I’m prepared to believe you any second now. Three!” “No! Stop!” — “He will outlive God trying to have the last word.” “Does that make me special?” “I don’t know, maybe.” “Are you jealous?” “We’re not a couple.” “Yes you are. There. ‘I’m not dead. Let’s have dinner.’” “Who the hell knows about Sherlock, but… for the record, if anyone out there still cares, I’m not actually gay.” “Well, I am. Look at us both.” — “I told you that camera phone was my life. I know when it’s in my hand.” “Oh, you’re rather good.” “You’re not so bad.” “Hamish! John Hamish Watson. Just… if you’re… looking for baby names.” — “Please, sit down. Oh, if you’d like some tea, I can call the maid.” “I had some at the Palace.” “I know.” “Clearly.” “I had some tea, too, at the Palace, if anyone’s interested.” — “Why does your phone make that noise?” “What noise?” “That one. The one it just made.” “That’s a text alert, means I’ve got a text.” “Hm… Your text don’t usually make that noise.” “Well, somebody got ahold of the phone and supposedly as a joke personalized their text alert noise.” “Hm… so, every time they text you-” “It would seem so.” “Could you turn that phone down? I’m a bit at my time of life.” “I’m wondering who could’ve gotten ahold of you phone, because it would’ve been in your coat, wouldn’t it?” “I’ll leave you to your deductions.” — “Looked a bit of a weirdo, if you ask me. They usually are, these vigilante types. What are you looking at?” “Joining me?” “Yeah, well, apparently it’s against the law to chin the Chief Superintendent.” — “Is your’s a snorer?” “Got some crisps?” — “Take my hand.” “Now people will definitely talk.” — “You know, my friends are so wrong about you. You are a great boyfriend.” “Okay, that’s good. I mean, I always thought I was great.” “And Sherlock Holmes is a very lucky man.” — “No thank you, Sarah.” “Not Sarah. He’s not good with names.” “No no no, I can get this. Sarah was the doctor, and then there was the one with the spots, and then there was the one with the nose, and then who was after the boring teacher?” “No one…” “Jeanette! Ah. Process of elimination.” — “Why today?” “Do you want to hear me say it?” “Eighteen months since our last appointment.” “Do you read the papers?” “Sometimes.” “And you watch the telly. You know why I’m here. I’m here beca-…” “What happened, John?” “Sher…” “You need to get it out.” “My best friend. Sherlock Holmes. Is dead.” — “There were things you wanted to say, but you couldn’t.” “Yeah.” “Say it now.” “No, I’m sorry. I can’t.” —”You… you told me once… that you weren’t a hero. Umm… there were times when I didn’t even think you were human, but let me tell you this. You were the best man, the most human… human being I’ve ever known and no one will ever convince me that you told me a lie, so… there. I was so alone… and I owe you so much. But please, there’s just one more thing, one more miracle, Sherlock, for me, don’t be… dead. Would you do that, just for me? Just stop it. Stop this…”

    Dean and Castiel definitely have a lot of great Destiel lines going for them, too, like:


    “Blow me, Cass.” — “Cass, get out of me ass!” “I’ve never been in your…” — “Not for nothing, Cass, but the last time someone looked at me like that, I got laid.” — “It’s been a long time since I laughed that hard. Oh, it’s been more than a long time. Years.” — “Don’t make me lose you, too.” — “Dean and I do share a more profound bond.” — “Dean, I do everything you ask. I always come when you call. And I am your friend, still, despite your lack of faith in me and now your threats. I just saved you yet again. Has anyone but your closest kin ever done more for you?” — “You know, I’m not much of a praying type.” [...] “I prayed to you, Cass. Every night.” “I know.” “You know and you didn’t… what the hell’s wrong with you?” “I’m an angel in a land of abominations. There have been things hunting me from the moment we arrived.” “Join the club.” “These are not just monsters, Dean, they’re Leviathans. I have a price on my head and I have been trying to stay one step ahead of them to… to keep them away from you.” — “Hold on. Hold on, Cass. We’re getting out of here. We’re going home.” — “Let me bottom line it for you: I’m not leaving here without you. Understand?” “I understand.” — “I was getting to close to the humans in my charge. You.” — “Cass, buddy. I need you.” — “I rebelled for this!? So that you could surrender to them?” “Cass! Please!” “I gave everything for you. And this is what you give to me?”

    They’re both great ships to sail, but when it comes to which ship I actually believe could happen, I choose Sherlock.

    • http://hypable.com Selina

      Holy crap, way to break it down. Skipped the Sherlock section because I still haven’t seen the show, but the massive amount of quotes intrigues me!

  • ncnapper92

    I hate when people ship two male characters unless they actually got a thing. The “thing” is only supposed to be a joke in Sherlock. I get the feeling Dean and Castiel at least have a serious bromance, if not a “thing”.

  • Alyssa

    Johnlock all the way!

  • http://www.facebook.com/mrs.emi.lovett María Emilia

    Dean and Cas. Without a doubt. They have survived Heaven, Hell, Purgatory and all the s*** Earth gives them everyday. They have survived Luficer, Michael, Uriel, Anna, Zachariah, Crowley, Meg, Dick Roman and they will surely survive Naomi and Benny (if Benny is not the cool friend he tends to be). They have survived betrayal and miscommunication. They have survived laughs and tears, family issues and lack of self-confidence. They survived dead (3 times).

    They complete each other. They are meant to be together.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/4NYGU24OBXB636XH7EME4GX53A Sierra C

    Destiel. At this point, you have to be blind NOT to see something going on between Dean and Cas (you don’t have to like it, but it’s there). Cas rebelled against Heaven for Dean, died twice for him, gave up everything so he wouldn’t have to force Dean back into the “life”. Dean nearly drank himself to death when he lost Cas, he spent a year in Purgatory looking for him, and now, in the most recent episode, blatantly admitted he “cares about” him. So yeah.
    DESTIEL :)

    I don’t think this could be an accurate pole. Right now Supernatural is in the middle of the season so their fans are at their height, and although Sherlock fans are going insane we’re in the middle of a huge gap between seasons so they’re not a common to find around. If this pole were to take place during a time both were airing I think the results would be much more accurate. Personally after watching both I prefer Johnlock of Destiel mostly because I feel the writers for the Sherlock fandom are more detailed oriented than Destiel which although Supernatural is engaging, I often feel like the writers have too much and they’re having trouble controlling and moving the story in the way that they want to go. The series makes me feel like the writers are overwhelmed with what they’re doing and what they’re trying to plan to do and that they’re struggling with it. And in all honesty it pulls me out of the story which is a bad thing. With Sherlock however the writers are very clean cut about what they’re doing and where they’re going. Sure they do have references from the story to go from but they’re still making this completely their own. I feel like they have more control than the Supernatural writers do. You can see clear parallels from One season to the next, from the first episodes to the last.

    Sherlock/John got my vote.

  • Liza Ippolitova


  • KiVi

    After last episode of Supernatural it’s an easy pick. Destiel.

  • Meyka

    Sorry, guys, but JOHNLOCK. Best of luck to all of ya in the bloodbath!

  • Kianna

    I literally cannot vote… my two favorite shows…. my four favorite characters…

  • Alisha

    I feel bad for the people in both of the fandoms…

    Ooh tough choice! I ship both but I’m gonna have to go with Destiel. I ship it more because they kind of feed it a little more on the show. But Johnlock is a good ship too!

  • Claire

    I have never shipped anyone as hard as I have shipped Dean and Cas. Destiel all the way

  • Person

    You can’t make me choose between them. No just… no. Both of these freaking pairings show extremely good chemistry with each other and they also both happen to be in bromances without realizing it. Both pairings have interesting, yet very close, friendships with one another This is actually a difficult choice to choose between, as I consider it quite the tie.

    I CAN’T DECIDE lksdjf;lakjdf;alskjdf

  • Shannen

    I ship both, but I have more feels for Dean and Castiel because wow they’ve been through so much and they have so many obstacles in their relationship, whereas the only thing keeping John and Sherlock apart is their sexuality.

    • Annie

      And Reichenbach.
      Reichenbach’s kind of an issue.

  • Jessica

    OMG Its so scary watching the numbers fluctuate back and forth. I don“t even know who I want to win more…… Why would you do this to us?!?!

  • Anna

    i’m pretty sure the final is going to come down to dean/cas verses 10/rose. now THAT, my friends, is what i would call a bloodbath.

    This is more of a which fandom has more fans on Hypable competition.

    • http://twitter.com/AntaraC Antara Chowdhury

      That’s not true. A lot of people who don’t regularly check Hypable or haven’t heard of Hypable before come here just to vote for their ship.

        Edit: This is more of a which fandom has more fans competition.

        • Guest

          I still disagree. Most people are fans of multiple fandoms.

          I watch both Sherlock and Supernatural, so that’s not exactly true

    I’m sorry…Caskett didn’t win the last round?! WHAT!

  • Maknatuna

    Destiel always!!! The only ship I ever had, have and will have…..

  • _SG-Me

    A tough one, but Johnlock it must be. Because let’s face it – Dean would sacrifice his own life for any number of people he feels obligated toward as they fall into his tight-knit social circle. He has severe issues with self-esteem and, if presented with the option of procuring the safety for any of those he cares for, I’m sure he would jump at it. Sam, Castiel, Bobby, Joanna… And Castiel? Well, he hasn’t always been on Dean’s side, as it were. They were forcibly shoved together as a matter of destiny avoided, but John and Sherlock? Whether or not their love is viewed as platonic or romantic, one cannot help but argue theirs for one another is stronger – especially in context of the series. Sherlock is rare to care for others and isn’t the type to die for people out of any sense of obligation, but he would do many a sentimental things (which he seems to detest) in effort to save John and John above others (where as Dean’s first priority is often Sam). And John in turn, who seems the type to normally avoid associating with people who possess Sherlock’s temperment, sees something in him that most other’s don’t. They may not have gone to the same extremes for each other as Dean and Cas, but that’s because Sherlock is a “normal” universe more or less, in which things like Heaven, Hell and magic don’t really exist. They can’t go to the same lengths because it is impossible in their Universe, not because their feelings for one another aren’t strong.

  • well this is awkward

    Destiel, if nothing else than that I’m more enmeshed in supernatural than I am in Sherlock.
    Oh and I cry about them every other day. Yeah..

  • Megan

    Dean and Castiel! Destiel is beautiful! I love DESTIEL!;)

  • Naomi

    I hate you so much. My too fav ships against each other. World, you have betrayed me.

  • Meliza Gutierrez

    Destiel because Moffat would never let Johnlock be canon and while it’s a longshot I have hope for Destiel :P
