BattleShips – Books: The Final Battle

You’ve voted for three months and now the time has come to choose which relationship has the loudest fandom. Will it be Bella and Edward from Twilight or Rose and Dimitri from Vampire Academy? You decide!


This particular version of BattleShips has been quite the surprise for everyone! Through-out the tournament Lyra and Will from His Dark Materials managed to outlast some of the biggest fandoms on the site like Harry Potter‘s Ron and Hermione and Divergent‘s Tris and Four.

Meanwhile, fandoms like Twilight and Vampire Academy stood strong against the competition and managed to make it to the final battle! Congratulations to all the fandoms involved, and we hope you had as much fun as we did while doing the tournament.

Before we get to the polls and the interesting battles of the tournament, we’d like to thank Brandan Leathead for doing our final battle image below. He’s submitted a couple of pieces of fan art just for BattleShips, and it’d be a shame not to show our readers his amazing work!

The images below represent fandom couples Ron and Hermione, Gatsby and Daisy, and Hazel and Augustus, all of whom lost to our two final champions. Take a look at these pieces of art, and then go vote for the championship round of BattleShips!

BattleShip Final Vote

Voting is now closed.

This poll will last 48 hours!

Which means all votes will be done at exactly 12:00PM on September 1st! Be sure to check back on Hypable for the winning announcement post.

Reminder: Sudden Death

This is the final battle, so sudden death is going to go just a little differently. In the event that the battle ends with a margin of 100 votes or less, the battle will go into sudden death. Sudden death means that the next day, a new battle will be set up for only 12 hours, and the winner of that poll will go on to the next round. All votes will be reset in sudden death, so every vote counts!

  • Lee

    Edward and Bella!!!

  • Ultron

    You know this contest isn’t even about which is your favorite or which one is better anymore. It’s about how many people the twilight fandom can get to vote for bella/edward. They should not have been included.

    • chels

      Too bad Hypable doesn’t decide their nominees based on opinions of people who mindlessly seethe bc Twilight wins. Too bad. Really.

      • Hanna

        But too good Hypable detected your bot.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          I wonder who set it up…

  • Pari

    BELLA & EDWARD FTW!

  • SV_Kuroneko95

    Rose and dimitri is a real couple unlike bella/edward, they’ve been through a lot of trouble together, had real problem to separate them but they still love each other deeply. Compare to that dripping fling stupidity, WHERE THE HELL do VA fans are!? (to be polite)
    Why only 9 vote for our lovely couple and more than 500 for those two idiots!?

    • Ricky

      To each his own, my dearest. To each his own. There’s a fine line between opinion and disrespect and I’m pretty sure you’ve just blurred it. Can we aim at fandom peace, please?

      • SV_Kuroneko95

        Sorry, I was upset by something else and i passed my nerves on it. I even hate fights between fandom when it come to this. I think its the wors “idiots” that made you run on your keyboard and i realise now that it wasn’t the word i wanted to use. I’m french and sometimes i miss some words. Sorry again. I hope this battle will finish happily for each fandom (WE’RE IN FINAL!)

    • Amanda_Roach15

      Rose ad Dimitri are winning right now!!

  • Sophiesquirels

    Oh these comments are going to get messy

    • Gia

      I THINK you inevitably singled out the Twilight fandom when you use “Twilight fandom” in your statement…lol…but either way, I also think Hypable likes the outside traffic tournaments like this generate.

      • Sophiesquirels

        I spent 3 minutes trying to up come with something else will edit thought of something now

  • sarah

    I really don’t get it. How do they win everything? Twilight is sooo over they lost a lot fans and how the hell this Bella&Edward wins everything!!! Rose and Dimitri for the win! You don’t even know Dimitri&Rose? God, all the Twihards you need to read other books than Twilight. There are ACTUALLY so much and so many better ones out there.
    Rose&Dimitri. You’re beautiful.

    • Lily

      Stereotypes SUCK you know that? I’m multifandom but I love Twilight the most. I mean I could say the people who vote for VA dont necessarily like Rose and Dimitri but vote for them just bc they hate EB, all without reading the books.

      • sarah

        I feel like everybody read those books. I think they vote against EB because they’ve already moved on and have new favorites.

        • NikEvil

          I LOVED Twilight. I may even like the twilight books a little more than VA. But I am Team Jacob lol. I thought Edward was psychotic. I absolutely LOVE Rose and Dimitri. Thats why I voted for them.

    • Moldovan

      Because most of them I don’t think they heard about VA. They are still drown to the twilight series, which sucked btw. And I think this is stupid. You can’t compare VA with anything.. Certanly not Rose and Dimitri, one of the best couples in books.

      • Jackie Reynolds

        I agree!

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        Umm, ‘scuse me, but my sister is a big VA fan and I tried to read the books. Seriously. I just can’t help it if I’m not interested…

        • sammy

          Or maybe you just don’t want to get into it because you’re starting the books with preconceptions? I can’t help it if you’re reading in a wrong way from the beginning, either. You may not like it or still think Twilight books are better but you need to finish the series first to make that kind of a statement.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Sure. I get what you’re saying. I want to try it again after I get home from our holiday. And I never said that they were worse or better.

        • HarryHungerAvatar12

          THE TWI HARD fan talking listen up here you can’t be biased againist books once you ACTUALLY sat there and read all of them and same goes for movie.

          • Rebecca Stone

            Yeah I’ve read both VA and Twilight, and I got to say Twilight is so boring compared to VA. Bella is a whiny baby and Rose is a badass, kick your ass girl. Edward is a boy and Dimitri is a man. I also saw the films and I fell asleep in every single one. Both the twilight books and films are boring.

          • raya.de@abv.bg

            YOU CRAZY? Danila a man!? HE IS A GOD! xD
            And when I think of Edward I can only imagine him pregnant. It suits him well, this gender error that his entire being is.

          • Rebecca Stone

            I’ll agree Danila is a GOD IN HUMAN FORM!!!!!! Also has anyone noticed that Bella only married Edward so she could have sex. On track mind much, Bella. Dimitri is just all round sexy, no other character could ever pull him off with his beautiful appearance and accent.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I never said that. I don’t kow whether you deduced that from thy words, but that s not what I meant. The movie’s not out yet, and I will see it, cause I’m going with my sis, so I will not judge. I just defend my fandom. If I accidentally insult you, I’m sorry.

          • HarryHungerAvatar12

            No its okay sorry i thought it differently. I respect peoples biased opinions on there own fandoms like me with Harry Potter for example. But we are aloud to share are opinions, i’m the one to be saying sorry.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            It’s all right. Chill :D

        • raya-de

          If Twilight is a good read an VA a bad one than I proclaim the end of the world. The day has come, people, Mayans guessed death but they should have told us that it wasn’t the whole Earth exploding. It was a brain death. http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbg6zdDXqy1r79k9c.gif

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I love how much you people can hate me even if I didn’t say what you proclaim… just LOVING that.

        • Moldovan

          Well it happens..

  • Amalia

    I was hoping against hope for Lyra/Will, but now I’ve nobody left to vote for… Wish I could follow the results without voting, though!

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      I wish the same as well. I’m not familiar with VA. For all I know they may not be much better than the other option…:/

      • nikoliapapa

        Hey! I understand if you don’t like neither of them and of course any opinion is accepted and respected. I just wanted to mention something: It looks like everybody thinks that the final is between two vampire couples. It’s not. Rose and Dimitri are not vampires and their relationship has nothing to do with it. Even if you took out completely the part where they train their whole lives to protect innocents and kill the evil vampires, their relationship is truly ideal. As a person, I wish I someday find someone who understands me, inspires me and completes me like that. I totally recommend you to check out the series :)

        • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

          Hi! That wasn’t really an opinion. The point is that since I’m not familiar with the material I can’t have any personal opinion on them. I would have to based my opinion on other’s opinion, not mine. I don’t roll that way. But either, know that I wouldn’t hold vampirism against any ship. :) It is sweet that you feel so strongly about them and I commend you for choosing to be positive about your ship rather than throwing shade and disrespect at their opponents. Unlike a lot of people here.

          • nikoliapapa

            Yeah, I see. Perhaps I didn’t express myself correctly. I was mostly referred to the part where you said “for all I know they may not be much better than the other option” so you know, I just thought of saying it’s pretty worth it, especially as the books go by :)
            Why wouldn’t I be positive? Fanaticism is a very bad thing either it’s based on someone’s love over something or on hate. Plus, none of these ships ‘suck’ or anything in my opinion. It just have to do with everybody’s taste and preference.

        • Laura

          They’re Dhampirs. Have human and half vampire. Plus, they’re badass.

  • laura

    can we redo battleships? with out bella and edward in it!

    • Ultron

      Amen.

      • laura

        not trying to be rude to that fandom.. but i would like to see the outcome without them!

    • Merina

      Why? Edward/Bella are a ship from a book, their position is utterly valid.

      • AJ

        The participation of them, however, caused the results to be screwed though. For example, at least one Twilight forum was encouraging people to vote against bigger fandoms earlier to help Bella/Edward win. So couples didn’t get as far as they would have. The inclusion of Edward and Bella in this actually messed with the results. So really, not valid at all. They should have been taken out just to prevent further incidents. And no, this is not a “strategy”, it’s literally changing how Battleships’ bracket would have looked like.
        Also, and this is just my opinion, much of the popularity of them actually comes from their movies. I would have been interested to see a Book Battleship in true form, you know? As in, ships that come from books and books alone.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          But there are also other fandoms doing that. E.g. VA fans were doing it. Stop singleling us out.

          • AJ

            Really? Because I’ve been following this from the beginning, and am not in the VA fandom and know that they haven’t been doing it the way twilight did.
            One of the main reasons people are voting against EB now is because their fandom was a victim of this.
            There are going to be some people who vote this way, true, and it’s hard to stop them. But the Twilight fandom is organizing motions for the entire fandom to do this.
            So yes, I’m going to single out the single group doing this. It’s unfair and irritated a lot of people and yet the Twilight comments talk of it like it’s some intelligent strategy.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            Oh jeez, this is the kind of attitude that makes no one look good. It’s pretentious and self-righteous. I can understand frustration with the process –I’d my share too– but this is just too much! It’s freaking BattleShips. *facepalm*

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Well, if they are that dedicated… I’m not in any forums, Twilight or otherwise, so I have no idea. I just can see in the comments that people are purposefully voting against us, even if they have no idea what VA is. I’m sorry, but I also feel irritated.
            I really shouldn’t have voiced my opinion…

          • sammy

            Uhm how well do you know VA fandom? It really looks like you’re just making assumptions and blaming the fandom with no basis. But Twilight fandom seems to do be doing something odd. Call it an organized voting or calling out others to vote for EB I don’t care. But it is quiet odd EB is gaining votes each seconds when the comments scream Rose&Dimitri. Is it cheating, I don’t know. But I know that something is wrong. And I don’t want to start a fight between fandoms it’s too unnecessary. People just vote for your favorite. I’ve read them both. But thereis no way for me that Twilight could be any better than VA series in any aspect. Just no. It’s not even near.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Umm, people are constantly saying in the comments to vote against E/B, and the votes? Not everyone voices their opinion. Especially if they actually read what is being said in the commments.
            I apologise for my comment, but peopleother than us are doing it. I’m not on any VA forums, so I don’t know about that, but every fandom has a strategy.

          • Ari

            I’m not voting in this round because, frankly, I don’t care anymore, but just because there are comments about Rose&Dimitri doesn’t mean that there going to be more votes. Maybe the Twilight fans didn’t want to join this fucking conversation

        • Sammy

          I’m sure that the Twilight fandom was not the only one doing this. Lots of people (individually or part of a group) could have voted against certain ships they did not want to win. This happens in lots of polls, regardless of the topic.
          I think it’s also unfair to say that Battleships Books is not in it’s truest form. All these ships originally came from books, and that’s what we were told to vote on.

          • AJ

            Yeah, but organized efforts of a significant portion of the fandom vs. a few outliers. Not the same thing. The Twilight fandom is not only the most egregious violator, but they are on a different level than other fandoms sending in massive groups of people to vote a certain way in a match up that they don’t know the pairings. It’s a whole different thing than the others.
            And I think you misunderstood me, I just think it would be interesting if this were truly a book fans battleships in that some of the people voting for Twilight as well as Harry Potter, GoT/ASoIaF, The Hunger Games, Eric and Sookie, they know of these pairings from somewhere other than books. They watch True Blood, so they vote Eric and Sookie and have never read a single page of the Southern Vampire Mysteries. It wasn’t a criticism, I just think it might have been interesting to have the purely book pairings separate. Like, I don’t know, Rose and Dimitri or Hazel and Augustus or Alanna and George. It was just a thought.

          • Incredulous

            Everyone! This is ridiculous. We’re supposed to be enjoying this and having fun, yet all I’ve read is bickering.

        • raya-de

          I’m posting this here as a reply because apparently nobody is going to see it.

          So, in one moment the votes for Rose and Dimitri are 10 038 and in the next they are 10 004!?!? What’s going on in Hypable? And Bella and Edward make hundreds for seconds? I say we take that seriously because something really dark is happening with this battle.

          • Merina

            Nothing dark is happening with the battle; I just rallied all of my fellow Twilight fans last night through the power of social media, phone calls and texts to VOTE and then pass the word on. Apparently, they and many others did.

            What’s happening is us Twilight fans are putting all of our energy into voting, rather than commenting on the votes!

          • sammy

            So you’re that much of an addict. You know what we don’t call each other and rally others. We just vote from all around the world because we just read the books. Seriously how uch of an addict are you guys? Unbelievable seriously. Guys let’s quit, we’re dealing with bunch of crazy Twihard fangirls. They need to get a life. You need to get a life. Still can’t believe it.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Umm, it says that you can rally votes through any means necessary, so if she wants to, she can. Jeez. And get over the stereotype.

          • Merina

            …I have nothing to say to you.

          • raya.de

            Nothing dark? Hypable themselves said that there were bot votes from Twilight side. They deleted them and now Romitri leads.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I wonder whether that was fair… was it? How would they know, anyway?

          • raya de

            How would they know? There are people that are admins of this site. Or something like this. Of course they can see what is happening in the site they run.
            And it was absolutely fair!

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Is this why the numbers don’t add up anymore?

          • raya.de

            They don’t add up? What do you mean? The percentages are still wrong but the votes from both sides are increasing bit by bit, pretty normally.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            This is what I’m talking about. Sorry. I don’t go on Twitter much…

          • raya.de
          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I apologise for the hackers. Winning is fine until it’s rigged.

          • raya.de

            They should be the ones to apologize, not you, but they don’t have the courage to do it or the dignity to participate as people and not ‘robots’. Every fandom has its crazy fans that everybody wants out of the picture.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I guess the main underestimation is not outside, but inside the fandom, which is really saddening.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            lol! Where was that said? I can’t find anything in this mess of comments. Oh man…

          • CliveRogan

            The Lyra/Will suddenly and against all odds overtaking Ron/Hermione followed by Lyra/Will fans being mysteriously being absent during Bella/Edward is bloody suspicious.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I’ll just say it this way – I had no hand in that. I only vote on the Twilight-related polls. I have no idea whether other people hacked this, which would piss me off, but it’s not all people, so don’t judge. Please.

          • CliveRogan

            I’m not saying you are, nor attacking your choices of ship. Just that it seems clear that some underhand stuff’s been going on with this competition, probably from all sides but more evident from the larger ship.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Probably. Why do they have to be so bitchy? This makes me ashamed of my fandom.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            It’s not your fault.

          • sammy

            You’re the bot. Just shut up. Now i know you definetely are the bot.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Wow… so if a Twilight fan is compassionate enough to apologise to other ships on the behalf of the bots and people who set them up, it automatically makes them a bot. Wow. Interesting. Know what? Go on any Twilight article from the past month not related to Battleships. I bet you’ll see a comment from me somewhere. Why would a bot comment on something unrelated? Come on, seriously. Get a grip.

          • sammy

            Guys come on this person is the bot. THE BOT. Might be the hacker.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            I think this type of gratuitous accusations are uncalled for, Sammy. What someone decided to throw a random accusation your way? Stop it. Settle down. You are bordering on troll territory now. Let Hypable do their job. They are effectively doing so. Just enjoy whatever time is left of the final.

          • sammy

            No no no. I respect your opinion and I understand that. But really I’ve been reading all the comments(crazy?) and there is something off. And there is a new bot. It’s still in the disqus page. I just don’t get it. This person(s) do the same. They feel sorry for what Twihards did with the cheating and all and state that they are Twilight fans and they should win in a fair way. But then in another comment the same person writes this “Rose&Dimitri of course!”. And this happened 3 times. 3 different nicknames. I feel weird. I’m sorry I don’t want to offend anyone and I’m thankful to hypable staff for detecting this misfortune thing and balance the things out but I am still seeing all those weird things and it just makes me feel awkward. This thing became something else…

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            No, Jordan, my comment was directed at the person who is directly accusing another person of being “the bot”. (Are you sammy?). Anyway, I don’t think that’s fair either. This entire tournament has been run with suspicion floating around. But suspicion only doesn’t work. Otherwise, everyone could come up with a conspiracy theory.

            I’m still bitter that Hr/R got eliminated that early. With this bot thing being discover in the finals, I still think it’s unfair to the ships that got eliminated in earlier rounds. Anyway, thanks for being nice. :)

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Wait… me? Are you serious? Actually serious? Wow… I never knew I sound robotic.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            I like the way you phrased this. :)

          • sammy

            Guys you’re talking to the bot. I’ve been following the conversations for hours and I think i’ve spotted the bot. The name sometimes says Becca, sometimes Crazy-eight23. And that person supported Twilight from the beginnnig and now says Romitri<3??? I don't understand this at all. But it looks like a bot to me.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            May well be. I’m so ashamed…

          • anonymous

            Ron/Hermione and Tris/Four don’t under stand it either.

          • Cboleto

            Yap putting energy to that and also sabotaging the other battles.

          • Merina

            I did not sabotage anything. One, single Twilight fan did and for that I am very sorry. But I had nothing to do with it, and I see no reason why you must behave so rudely to me.

          • Lauren

            It is sometimes a bit dodgy. It says I have voted when I haven’t.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Refresh the page and it should let you vote.

          • Rose Belikova

            It says VA has more votes but that Twilight is winning?????!! Mkaes no sense at all….

        • Merina

          I find it most insulting that you single out Twilight fans as having done that. I have encountered COUNTLESS fans from many different fandoms who had similar strategies – not to mention the hundreds of people who deliberately voted against Twilight, even if they knew nothing about the competing ship!

          The results are not ‘screwed’ in the slightest.

        • Nomi

          I don’t agree with your Reasoning but I do agree with the fact that Bella and Edward should not be included. My thought is that they are so popular and mainstream that basiclly they are always going to win and I would just like to see a ship off off without them to see what ships (Next to any Twilight one) that might be popular today.
          And I don’t like the idea of pooling votes or anything, let the ships talk for themselves.

        • Ashley R

          THANK YOU! I’m so glad that Hypable has finally addressed the Twilight bots (the hypable twitter spoke about it). I’ve been trying to warn people since three rounds ago when I saw those off-site forum postings (I’m a Twihard who frequents that forum). Other twilight fans here keep denying that our fandom is organizing campaigns to rig the votes. A certain subset of twihards have organized voting/poll rigging for YEARS. How do you think Twilight wins voter awards and these kinds of polls by such large numbers? I can’t even begin to count how many fans I’ve seen talk about spamming/bot-ing right out in the open. I definitely dont doubt that twilight can win votes without the hacking, we still have more than enough honest fans to win. But other fandoms deserve a fair fight.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            I wonder how this affected earlier rounds and other ships, though…. Now I feel the earlier rounds (especially the dubious ones) were probably tampered with some way, somehow, even if it went undetected. This bot thing discovery has basically ruined the entire thing for me. I don’r feel I can trust ANY of the results, no matter who wins the whole thing in the end.

          • Ashley R

            Thats exactly what Ive been wondering too. Im just as big a fan of HP and hunger games as I am of Twilight and I voted for Ron/hermione in their rounds. I was hoping them, edward/bella and katniss/peeta would all have a big battle in the finals. It made no sense to me how they lost by such a huge margin that early on. Especially when you think about how such a big portion of hypable readers were introduced to this site through Andrew and Mugglecast. Then when I saw that twilight forum posting about vote rigging my heart sunk. Hopefully hypable will do another battleships in the future where some kind of registration is required for voting. I know they want maximum traffic to the site but thats really the best way to prevent bot/spam voting.

        • AJ

          I get why honest Twilight voters are upset and irritated at everyone pointing out the unfairness of the inclusion of the Twilight fandom, because they are voting honestly, but it’s been obvious that at least parts of the Twilight fandom have been cheating from the start. Now there’s even more proof. I get that people want to ignore it because they don’t want to think their fandom is cheating or that their fandom should be removed from the contest, but come on! It is very clear that someone hacked the poll to skew results in Twilight’s favor (and did not even do a good job.)
          This is why I was saying Twilight should have been disqualified.
          If you like Twilight, that’s fine, but don’t pretend that your fandom has been honest this whole time and that everyone else is just overreacting and singling you out.

        i get what your saying it’s just that alot of people feel that rather being the best pairing they are the most well known. I really don’t mind though because it is a popular book so logically it should have been included in this pairing

      • Ultron

        It’s just extremely annoying how a terribly written series with a terribly written relationship can beat out plenty of well written series and relationships. Therefore this is no longer a contest of best couple but a contest where hoards of twilight fans vote just so they can win and get some sort of satisfaction while rubbing it in everyone’s face

        • Rose/Dimitri<3

          Thank you! I am going to agree with whatever you say. Because… YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH!

        • Merina

          Battleships was never a contest of ‘best couple’ – an internet poll isn’t going to define objectively what the greatest couple ever in literature is! An internet poll is going to define what the ‘most voted for’ couple is; and Twilight is close to winning that.

            Thank you!

            And those millions have no taste in good literature.

            Says voice of reason and more millions of people than you could imagine.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            You didn’t understand me, obviously. Wow. If this was a poll about the biggest stereotype out there, this would win 1st place.

          • raya.de

            I’m not talking about stereotypes at all. I have read all books from the Twilight saga and have the right of voicing an opinion, the right of ‘hating’ or discussing all the wrongs of these books.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Fair enough. But you could’ve mentioned that earlier.

          • raya.de

            Some Twilight fans think all the people who don’t like the books and movies are not familiar with the story and are just ‘haters’ and some of these other people think that Twilight fans don’t read other books. Both statements aren’t correct. What I said about Twilight is not because I think its readers don’t read other books, I know they do, but because there are those of them who like Twilight more than everything and I just can’t understand this.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Fair enough. I have no problem with a justifyed opinion. I just get ahead of myself.

          • raya.de

            Comment from an insulted child. A fan have to be able to defend what he/she likes by actual proof of the high quality of the book or movie. And if a Twilight fan tries to do is it would never be a reasonable opinion because Twilight is not literature but simply really bad entertainment.
            I don’t know what people you’re reading but the fact that you’ve read Twilight and think that it’s better than almost any other book in the genre(or in all genres) speaks by itself. I’ve seen so many twihards trying to be reasonable and it just doesn’t work because there is not other reason than the lack of mind for thinking that these books are a good read. Your millions are worth of nothing. Maybe just for robot voting.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I think this is crossing a line now… I will stop contributing, I guess.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            Way to be dismissive and harsh, dude (or dudette). The only thing left is for you to stump on their books and then proceed to set them on fire.

          • raya.de

            Haha, and actually I don’t hate Twilight, I just don’t like that so many people think it’s such a good series. It’s not. It doesn’t deserve the money and the attention it gets.
            Dismissive? Why? Because I’ve read the books and point out their basic flaws? Harsh? I’m just saying the truth. I could have been harsher, I could have said it’s sh*it like a child but I have some kind of respect for some of the Twilight fans.
            I have the books and I don’t intend on setting them on fire. But I don’t intend to keep silence or praise their ‘brilliance’. The person I probably respect the least from the Twilight world? Stephenie Mayer. The one that wrote the books because of money and ungrounded ego.

          • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

            See, even when you are replying to me, who said NOTHING about your opinion of the books, you answer with this underlying pretentious, self-righteous attitude that I have no care for.

            I didn’t say a word about your opinion (which I could care for any less. I’m not even a fan of the Twilight thing), just the way you are expressing it. It is your prerogative to be dismissive (example of dismissive: “comment from an insulted child” <—unnecessary) and harsh, just as it is mine to call you out on it. There are ways to share an opinion without being harsh and aggressive. If you don't know or care for the difference, then good riddance, my friend. It just makes you look like you are throwing a temper tantrum rather than having a rational conversation.

          • raya.de

            You said I’m dismissive and harsh and I explained to you why I’m not. That’s why I included my opinion. Which you clearly misunderstood for ‘underlying pretentious, self-righteous attitude ‘. I said “comment from an insulted child” not just for the sake of being harsh and self-righteous but because the comment I replied to was childish and expressed in a very well-known attitude by some twilight fans. It wasn’t unnecessary to point that which in the first place was unnecessary to be written.

            I was also not being mocking or aggressive. I was honest and my honesty you thought had something to do with pretentiousness or something like that. It’s maybe because I seem to express not an opinion but a statement with what I’m saying. And I was being pretty rational in comparison to a comment like ‘Bunch of cry babies’ that was a reply to actually ‘words of wisdom’ by one user.

          • Merina

            Whoa there, mate! No need to be so incredibly rude! State your opinions with a little respect, come on.

      • HarryHungerAvatar12

        Since a lot of people hated the fan picked fandoms lets say Ron/Hermione for instience people voted aganist them. Katniss/Peeta was understandable though i mean they did go in depth with there relationship but it was kinda of awkward at some points.

      • Ornela Pattinson

        I agree and I also feel insulted by the comments as a twilighter. That twilightes are not posting comments doesn’t mean that they are not voting.

    • Maria Wang

      yes please

    • Phantomfluteplayer

      What I would have liked to see would have been a books Battleships with pairings whose books have never been made into TV series/movies. I would like to see a faceoff of characters who only exist in book form. While that would eliminate a lot of the popular pairings in this tournament, I think it would be interesting to see a faceoff among the less mainstream ships. It would have given the book-only-ships a fighting chance in the tournament. It always would have been possible to do another faceoff later with the books which have been made into movies or TV series pairings.

    • Nancy Relena

      Their whole relationship sucks -_- i don’t see how they even made it past the first round :P

    • Emma

      I wish Hypable would, especially now that it’s been confirmed some members of the Twilight fandom have been cheating. They used bots in this round – who’s to say they didn’t in earlier rounds, even in match-ups they weren’t a part of just to knock out the bigger competition?

      I mean, look at Lyra/Will. They mysteriously came out of nowhere by thousands of votes to knock out Ron/Hermione in both the regular match-up AND the sudden death, even though Ron/Hermione were ahead by about 80% each time. Then they knocked out Tobias/Tris when, again, the latter was ahead by quite a bit. Then when it came time for Lyra/Will vs. Bella/Edward, all of Lyra/Will’s fans mysteriously went missing. They still got votes, but not nearly as much as they did in the two rounds before. Instead, the Twilight numbers were comparable to those Lyra/Will had seen in previous rounds. (I say this with absolutely no disrespect to fans of HDM, by the way. It’s not your fault that this happened.)

      I’m glad the cheaters have been caught and that this is being more closely monitored now, but I’m still incredibly annoyed with how this all turned out. I think it was during the Ron/Hermione vs. Lyra/Will round that I first mentioned the possibility of bot votes, and while a staff member replied to me (don’t remember which,) I still felt like my comment wasn’t taken seriously. Well, no offense to the Hypable staff, but I’m still convinced cheating was involved long before this round and that certain fandoms got screwed.

      I’d also said if cheating were actually occurring, I truly wished my fandom wouldn’t fall victim to it, and guess what? It almost did. Rose/Dimitri is my ship and has been since the beginning of this tournament. While I’m glad they now have a FAIR chance at the title, I’m still upset that other pairings were unfairly eliminated early. I don’t ship Ron/Hermione. I don’t ship Tris/Tobias. I don’t ship Jaime/Brienne. (I do ship Elizabeth/Darcy, but who doesn’t? :p) Even though I personally could care less about some of the ships that were likely cheated out of wins in their respective rounds, it’s not fair that their chances were tampered with. I know a lot of people will say “it’s just Battleships, it doesn’t matter!” but you know what? It actually DOES matter. It may not be life or death, but it matters. Fandoms become our families, the characters our friends, and it’s not cool when someone messes with that.

      That said, I agree: Book Battleships SHOULD be redone, sans Bella/Edward or any other Twilight ship, simply because of the (now proven) cheating. Exact same set up with all pairings in their original places, but with a different pairing from a different book for #15. (I think Bella/Edward were 15, but I could be wrong.)

      I’d also like to add that this is not a dig on Twilight fans as a whole. I know not all of you were involved. But I’m sorry – the fans of the 15 other fandoms represented in this tournament deserve a fair chance, and I don’t think that can happen if Twilight is included again. There’s always a few people that have to ruin things for everyone. :( I’m not just saying that because it’s Twilight, either. If it were revealed that fans of Rose/Dimitri had set up a vote bot, you better believe I’d be the first one to suggest a tournament redo without the inclusion of my fandom.

      • Jenna

        I completely agree with you Emma. When Ron/Hermione lost twice I thought there might be something going on. Like someone else said in another reply, most people who come to Hypable were introduced to it via Mugglecast and Andrew. With all those long term Potter fans right here on the site, it’s just crazy that they could be voted out so early on. Not to mention the other largest fandoms. The Hunger Games is insanely popular now and growing so it’s just as weird that they lost to relatively small fandoms. I’m not saying those smaller fandoms are at all less worthy, it’s just logical that those that are more current and with much more popularity would make it further.

        I’m all for Battleships being redone, it would only be fair. Actually, I’ve been thinking all along that they should have separate battleships for YA and classics/adult literature. It’d be so interesting to see that, it’d be a much more robust competition.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          Battleships Classics and Battleships Modern. That would be so cool…

        • hcoffeegirl

          Peeta/Katniss didn’t lose from Jaime/Brienne that much it was total realistic something like 52-48 if I remember correctly – so that round wasn’t cheated – and the all number was about 3000 – so that was fair

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        I don’t think we should be taken out, but I think the poll should be made proof againgst bots and whatever, because, yes, it really is unfair to you and I apologise for those cheating bitches, but it also would be unfair to us honest Twihards if we weren’t included.

      • http://thestorybehindthebookcover.blogspot.com/ Martina Koleva

        I just now read your comment and I do agree with some of the points you made but I have a question. Okay, let’s say they exclude Twilight from the poll, which will be unfair to those fans who didn’t cheat, so what happens then… Don’t you think that those that did cheat will be pissed and take it out on everyone else?
        The polls need to be Bot proof and the categories need to change because it’s unfair to a lot of ships that aren’t as popular as E/B but no one needs to be excluded just because a few fans have cheated…

        And I’m a VA fan all the way so I’m not saying this because I’m biased.
        Hopefully Hypable will make some changes for the next polls and they won’t let something like this happen again..

  • Shelly

    Wow, I am so surprised at these final two…

  • Maria Taekwondo

    Rose And Dimitri! <3

  • robenchanted

    Don’t y’all see that what they’re really trying to do is to see if VA will be as popular as Twilight? The pairs were put in a way that would fatally lead to this final result. ¬¬ Romitri all the way!

  • Taylor Justice Soniat

    I have never read Vampire Academy, but I voted for them, just because I don’t want Twilight to win….

    • raya-de

      You should read it then. It’s a beautiful story about something more than what one may expect from vampires and teens.

    • Amanda_Roach15

      You should definitely read Vampire Academy I have read both and in my opinion VA is 100x better than Twilight!!

    • Becky Burgess

      I also recommend you read the series. I also read Richelle Mead’s other series (more adult ones) and she’s an amazing author. VA doesn’t have the pointless drama Twilight does. Rose is a total badass that hunts bad vampires with her hot Russian boyfriend whereas Bella and Edward are in this love triangle and they’re wimps. You won’t be disappointed with the VA series. :)

    • Alliee

      I agree. Read Vampire Academy. When Twilight first came out, I’m not gonna lie, I read em. And I enjoyed em. BEFORE the movies came out. They just ruined everything. And then I read VA. SO AMAZING. 7342892768972304 times better than Twilight. Forreal. Also, like Becky said, her other books are really good as well!!! She just has this amazing way with weaving a story and pulling you in.

      • raya-de

        Yes, and her greatest talent lies in creating relationships. Amazing relationships. VA is one of the few YA books(probably the only one?) that has an adult romance. And Bella and Edward winning over the love masterpiece that is Romitri!? To read Twilight is one thing, to actually think that it can possibly be better than other amazing books is shameful. It’s not a matter of different opinions, it’s a matter of brain potential.

  • DreamerN

    Rose and Dimitri are way better then Bella and Edward… But.. there comes the twilight fandom…

    • raya-de

      And there comes the VA fandom!

  • nikoliapapa

    I’ve been huge fan of Twilight in the past (and I still like it) but then I read Vampire Academy and.. well, honestly I find it way better in all matters. They’re my most favorite series of all times now. Also Rose and Dimitri are like the Perfect Couple. Rose gave up on everything she believed in and fought for in her entire life to go after him and Kill him herself when he’d lost his soul because they’d promised each other. And Dimitri has been her teacher in life, the inspiration she needed to want to excel. The clarity into this darkness around her. So no doubt.. ROMITRI!

    • Jackie Reynolds

      Its a really good series! Wish I could read them again! Much better than twilight in my opinion.

      • nikoliapapa

        You should! Even if you don’t have the books they’re available online in pdf form. Nothing compares to an actual book, but what to do?

          I have all the books from the series and whenever I get bored or sad I just pick one of them up and I’m instantly happy. Best series EVER!

          • nikoliapapa

            YES! Totally. You can’t get bored of them with all these lines and the mystery, the action.. Richelle created a world I completely adore.

    I’m all about fandom respect, and i say this with as much respect as i can muster for fellow book-lovers of all kinds
    BUT IM SORRY you canNOT look at the semi-abusive, needy, and obsessive relationship of Edward and Bella and compare it to Hazel/Gus, Ron/Hermione, Lyra/Will.
    To everyone who voted Edward/Bella… if that’s the relationship you are after than i actually do feel bad for you!!

    • Anon

      Thank you for saying that out. I couldn’t have said it any better!

    • Lonette Ranger

      Actually you can compare. Edward and Bella’s type of relationship written in classic those relationships are rarely written in books now an days but that doesn’t make it less valid. Read a book and learn some literature before you judge

      • hypableaddict81

        i’ve read all the twilight books and TONS of classic, modern, fantasy, fiction, non-fiction, and any other genre you can name.
        im not saying that Edward/Bella’s type of relationship has never been written about before. you’re right. you can find tons of abusive and obsessive relationships like theirs in all genres of books, absolutely i don’t argue that.

        i do however argue that it’s not the type of relationship that people should be seeking for themselves, or trying to compare it to the Ron/Hermione Lyra/WIll Rose/Dimitri ships that involve independent and strong characters

        • Lonette Ranger

          Firstly just because someone likes a relationship in the boom doesn’t mean they want that for themselves. Secondly if anyone basis their look for a spouse off a book you look stupid

      • HarryHungerAvatar12

        Ya of course!!! Edwards and Bella’s story is so original because Bella the Damsel in distress has to wait for her prince charming in this case Edward the sparkling fairy to be swepted off her feet WHAT A VERY ORIGINAL STORY!!! Oh wait there is one minor detail it sucks and is a horrible relationship for the younger audience.

        • HarryHunger12

          and trust me i can judge since i READ ALL THE BOOKS and watched ALL THE MOVIES.

          • Lonette Ranger

            also I obviously pointed out that their kind of relationships are written in some of the classics damsel in distress is not anything new. It hasnt been written in a while but that doesnt make that relationship anymore valid. And trust me their are people are here who hate twilight yet their relationship matches it.

        • Lonette Ranger

          No one said its original most books now and days aren’t. Do you think rose and dimitri are the first relationship written where they are fighting their love for each other and are fighting for each other? No they are not. And what younger audience? I guess staking and sex scenes are better for the younger audience? If a parent thinks twilight is not for their kid then they don’t have to let them read them.

          • HarryHungerAvatar12

            A lot of kids around 12 read Twilight. I read it when i was young, the younger generation grow up more faster with certian things. The younger genration will seek out and be lessoned on books they love and if they love Twilight they might as well be jumping off a cliff (WHICH I DON’T WANT), it makes me sick.

          • Lonette Ranger

            If you feel that way about Twilight then you better call all the t.v networks, radio stations, movies, and the internet because THATS what kids these days are influenced by. Oh lets not forget the freaking magazines. Kids barely read these days so thats a joke. And I read Twilight when I was young as well and I’m fine. I am not out looking for a relationship anywhere close to Edward and Bellas. Don’t try to blame one little book on the outcome of 12 year olds. I was around that age when me and my friends read it and yeah we were wild about it but we are now in college and over it.

      • Marine

        Most of the classics you are referring to (I believe, it would be helpful if you cited which ones) were written before the advent of feminism. Modern day authors should know better.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          … but they don’t have to. I like that Twilight’s old-school. I really get a bit annoyed with this feminist shit.

          • Marine

            I’m sorry, (assuming you’re a girl), you get a bit annoyed about having the right to vote, the right to keep your children in case of a divorce, the right to choose when to have children, the right to work without your husband’s permission, your right to work in whatever job you choose, and your right to be respected independently of your marital status? This ‘feminist shit’ I’m referring to is not being annoyed when a man opens the door for you. It’s women being treated as human beings with equal rights.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I’m not talking about that. I’d be stupid to hate that. Gosh. I just mean that sometimes it’s taken too far. And that annoys me. No one is truly idependent, anyway.

        • Lonette Ranger

          I’m sorry but a writer can do whatever they want. If she wants to bring in an old style of relationship then she can. And if she “knew better” she wouldn’t be where she is today and just because feminism happened doesn’t mean she ha to give up an idea. And I’m sorry butoat girls now and days are Bella pretty girls walking around thinking they are ugly until a guy has to tell them a million times they are not. Rose is what girls want to be but Bella is what so girls are and as fat as classics go my favorite with an abusive relationship would probably be the picture of Dorian Grey or the book that Bella lives so much wuthering heights

          • Marine

            In The Picture of Dorian Gray, Sybil dies. In WutheringHeights, Catherine is the abuser. Both of these relationships are clearly marked as unacceptable and other relationships in the novels are written as healthier alternatives (particularly Catherine/Hareton). If those were the ‘old school’ romances you talk about in ‘classics’, I’m sorry to say that even pre-feminism they were

          • Marine

            Considered unacceptable by their authors. Also Catherine obviously exemplifies rampant female sexuality and an extreme of feminism.

          • Lonette Ranger

            Just because a woman is an abuser doesn’t change the fact that there was abuse and yes she died but before she did She was obsessed with him an didn’t understand how someone like him could find her attractive. Sound familiar? This argument is stupid you can try to deny twilight the props it deserves but you just look silly. You know by a lot of people hate the twilight fandom I also hate the fandom sometimes and it’s because they defend it blindly and like to talk crap about other books. The va series is not like twilight but the fandom is reminding me a bit like twilight

          • Marine

            1) I pointed out that both these relationships are unacceptable, whether the woman or man is the abuser. This is the key difference, Sybil feels the same way as Bella but her literary end shows that her relationship was not a good one, while Bella’s is represented as true love.
            2) You’re the one who asked us to ‘read a book and learn some literature before you judge’. I have, and now I’m engaging you in a proper debate on Twilight’s literary merits. I have pointed out that there isn’t, in the classics you cite, any indication of a similar relationship to E/B portrayed well.
            3) I am not attacking your fandom. I acknowledge the cultural importance (or ‘props’) of Twilight as a masterpiece of marketing and consumer insight. I will not, however, acknowledge that it has any literary significance or merit.

    Why get on here and argue thats about childish everyone has their own opnion plus the movies are already out for twilight and not.for VA. so more ppl have seen edward and bella that haven’t read the books… Honestly this poll should have waited till the movies came out for an honest and fair poll

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      Is the poll fair if Rose/Dimitri wins? lol They might pull it off considering a lot of people are rallying behind the ship out of mere opposition to Twilight.
      And I couldn’t agree more about the arguments and temper tantrums!

    • EVELYN

      not about the movie is about the history of books. so famdom of vampire academy the fault is not that twilight has a disgusting adaptation

    • guest

      “why get on here and argue” um because it’s the comment section of a competition of fandoms if people can’t post their feelings about fandoms than what’s the point of a comments section?

  • S.K.Hansen

    Eh, I don’t ship either of these couples, so just for fun I voted randomly.

  • Emely Van Cutsem

    I like bella and edward but I love Rose and Dimitri, so come on Rose and Dimitri

  • zara

    let the blood bath begin

  • Tia Marie Bishop

    lol Sydney and Adrian should have had it! But I still like Rose and Dimitri, and LOVE VA so of course I voted for Rose and Dimitri :P I can’t even believe that Twilight’s Bella and Edward were even in the running with VA’s Rose and Dimitri .. oh my

  • NikEvil

    Rose and Dimitri! Why? Because, TEAM JACOB!! THATS WHY! LOL ^_^

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      Hey, at least you can say it is a legitimate reason.

  • Jennifer

    Rose and Dimitri!!!! Edward and Bella didn’t have to endure one eighth of the stuff Rose and Dimitri did! Bella never could have been strong enough to bring her love back to life like Rose did!

    • morgen71

      This may not matter much but… SPOILER ALERT PEOPLE

    • guest

      aww darn i was about to start the first one. yes please spoiler alert these things D:

  • Pague Tha Pagoo Penalber

    Rose and Dimitri <3

  • And

    We can’t let Edward and Bella’s abusive relationship win??!

    • Khan

      why not?
      apparently it’s romantic to sneak into a girl’s house and watch her sleep? to manipulate her away from other friends? to physically force yourself on to her?
      i think that’s adorable let’s vote for that

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        Umm… other than the first point, it’s Bella that actually does that stuff…

        • guest

          at one point Bella has to make a secret plan for Jacob to find her at her school to she can go off with him. and Edward is visibly mad at her and makes her apologize for it. Edward also removes a piece of her car so she can’t go see him.

          there’s a scene where he holds her down and kisses her. she even says and i quote “i planted my hands on his chest and tried to push but he was too strong”.

          but if you’re acknowledging that Bella also does those things how can you think this is a good relationship? i don’t mean that condescendingly i truly dont understand

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            That quote ends with him actually pulling away, so that’s a bit moot.

            I just think that it makes sense in a way that they literally are the same person. That is hard to find. And being the same person doesn’t mean being good. Even bad people deserve a happy ending, in my POV anyway. I know it’s twisted. My friend loves Ian Brady… so do you expect me to be normal?

          • Merina

            Edward later on apologises for how he treated Bella with the Jacob situation, and says that he respects her decisions and was wrong to treat her in such a way.

            The quote that you referenced is taken ENTIRELY out of context and regardless – he pulls away, just after.

        • -

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I don’t know. Might be :D

      • morsmordre79

        I like this simply because your name is Khan and therefore I heard Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice as I read the comment. As such, it was lovely. :)

  • Ahmed Tarek

    Bella and Edward ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the way :)

  • SAM AND FRODO 4EVER

    BRANDAN ART IS AWESOME HE IS SO TALENTED BUT WTF BELLA AND EDWARD THAT IS SOOOOOO DUMB WHY DIDN’T THEY CHOOSE A REAL TRUE LOVE COUPLE LIKE FRODO AND SAM THEY REPRESENT TRUE SOUL MATES NO VAMPIRES WTF IS THAT

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      1st: FRODO AND SAM???

      And 2nd…

  • Ahmed Tarek

    Bella and Edward is a human-vampire relationship. Logically, you don’t get the most balanced relationship ever.

  • Brandan Ray Leathead

    Thanks for the opportunity Hypable! May the “best” fandom win ;)

  • zara

    i don’t care for either couple so this is really fun

  • Alina Bonita Mokić

    go Romitri!!

  • Faith Shoulders

    Should have been Sydney and Adrian, but I guess I’ll take second best and go with Rose and DImitri.

  • Jacqui :)

    ROSE AND DIMITRI MUST WIN!!!! RAAAAAAAAAA

  • RoseandRyan Regan

    Twilight is ridiculous and way over hyped. I’ve read every single book, the writing is mediocre. How can it even compare to any other vampire series out there?

    Rose & Dimitri, you’ve got my vote!

  • Hannah.

    I have to say I have read twilight, so please don’t give me grief when I state my opinion. I found it slightly boring, a little tedious and couldn’t get through New Moon as I just couldn’t get into the story. I read the first three VA books in the space of two weeks, and found them amazing, hilarious and action packed. Rose and Dimitri are one of my favourite fictional couples, I really, really hope they win! And to people saying others are only voting for Dimitri and Rose because they hate Twilight, please go and read the books and get back to us after you’ve compared the two. If you still like twilight more, fine, but personally VA will always win for me.

    • Amber

      I agree! I did the same while reading VA and bloodlines. I agree with new moon being a bore and vampires shouldn’t sparkle LOL

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        Depends on the myth. It makes sense.

  • Amber

    The VA books are awesome! I am now in bloodlines and loving those as well! I liked Twilight but I don’t think vampires should sparkle like someone bedazzled them. Rose and Dimitri are “epic” compared to Edward and Bella.

  • Gabriela Guterres

    ROMITRI BC CABIN IN THE WOODS!!!!!

  • Kimberlie Raven Crouse

    I do have to say I loved the Twilight BOOKS as much as I love the Vampire Academy books. I did not like the Twilight movies as much but enough on that… What happened to Cat and Bones being in this Battleship-books?

  • Marie Asmaa Jung

    Ok how the hell does Bella&Edward can win over couple such as Romeo&Juliette, or Beatrice&Benedict, or Elizabeth&Darcy??!!!!! Those are mytic couple, those are epic love!! What happened to culture??!

    • mstoast

      The astonishing part about that is that Twilight literally wouldn’t even exists in its form if it hadn’t been for Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, Wuthering Heights and more. Stephenie Meyer simply doesn’t have enough creativity or talent to have written a novel without using those stories. There’s inspiration, in which all authors are inspired by their predecessors in various ways. But then there’s what S Meyer did – which was take tropes from a bunch of different books/mythology and alter them only in the smallest ways possible. Her usage was so literal that she had to cite Wuthering Heights, P&P, etc in the Twilight series.

      I read all the twilight books and the only remotely original idea S Meyer had was to make the vampires friggin sparkle.

  • missxsteph21

    Now I’ve never read the Vampire Academy books, but I have heard that the series is good and I have actually heard a lot about this couple and its all been good things. I am a Twilight fan and probably always will be, though not as much as I was a year ago. Bella and Edwards relationship, even being creepy and obsessive, is still a love story. Not the best one ever written, I mean there’s no one who can beat Romeo and Juliet or Darcy and Elizabeth, but its still a love story. Honestly when I first read Twilight I fell for Edward too, but my favorite couple from the books is Alice and Jasper.

  • christie h

    Rose and Dimitri

  • Amber

    Rose and Dimitri all the way <3

  • Sue Anne

    Rose and Dimitri, of course.

  • Alana

    The results of battleships were really unexpected and, to be honest, kind of frightening. Is this how we define a good romance today? A codependent and needy relationship where these two human being cannot have an independent identity without the other? Look at Edward and Bella. It has already been established that she is one of the worst female characters for people to look up too. Why are we glorifying a clearly unhealthy relationship that doesn’t even entirely work in the books or movies themselves? To quote Joss Whedon, most of these YA novels have become “Choosing Boyfriends:The Movie.” They are most definitely not the best romance out of those up for the title if there is always the hinting suspicion that the girl chose the wrong guy. No disrespect to the Twihards or Vampire Academy fans or anyone else I may have offended, it just confuses me…

    • mstoast

      Thank you!! It is truly frightening cause it affects the direction popular literature goes in. We’ve already seen what this means when 50 Shades of Grey sold an obscene amount of books. How many talented writers with original ideas will get passed up by publishers in favor of melodramatic romance that is almost guaranteed to make them easy money? Sure, great books still get published, but they don’t put nearly as much effort into their publicity which means less people will have a chance to know about them. It’s just so bleak :(

  • Melody

    I can’t Vote, like last time. But Defiantly want Rose and Dimitri!

  • EVELYN

    Rose and dimitri

    • Moldovan

      They are so cuuuuuuuute together..Perfect choice..

  • Neo Primo

    Rose & Dimitri

  • Allie

    where are Kathy&Daemon and Alex&Aiden?

  • Lon3ly♥Girl

    I’m sorry if that’s mean but this is Vampire ACademy’s year twilight fans…. :)

  • Anna

    Rose and Dmitri!!!!!! ^^

  • Laura

    Rose and Dimitri need to win. They’re a much better couple, and have gone through more together. Rose went to kill Dimitri after he turned Strigoi. Bella wouldn’t be able to do that because she’s so “in love” with Edward that she’d jump off a cliff to see his face. There’s really no competition, Romitri is SO much better.

    • Jackie Reynolds

      AMEN!

  • morsmordre79

    The art is lovely, but didn’t Gatsby/Nick represent The Great Gatsby in this tournament, not Gatsby/Daisy?

  • Allie

    forgot to tell..Rose and Dimitri all the way!

  • Sarah Deutch

    ROSE & DIMITRI! I’ve read Twilight too & I like the books! But VA is my favorite series since I read the first time. I just love the chemistry between Rose & Dimitri.

  • Alexandra

    I’m so over Twilight -no offense. And what pisses me of is that EVERY fantasy, book to adaption movie that is coming out has to “explain” why is not the next Twilight. I just hate that. Since when they have to do a press conference to convince the others that their movies is not the next Twilight?

    • raya-de

      Since the critics, those who are not fans and probably all the people in the world watched Twilight and started talking about it more than its fans. And since they started comparing every single book that happened to be for young adults to Twilight. Since Twilight and stupidity exist. Twilight is over(I’m happy about this fact), haters are not. Haters are keeping Twilight alive. The’re giving food for that which is not literature but simple entertainment.
      P.S. Hatred is bad. Love will save us all so – vote for Rose and Dimitri! xD

      Refresh!
      I also find that going back to the main BattleShips page (click on “View the latest articles from: BattleShips”) and then clicking on the page that you want to vote on works most of the time. If that doesn’t work, check back later but come in from the main BattleShips page, not from a link that takes you directly to this one.
      Hope you get your vote soon!

  • ytretyakova

    Rose and Dimitri <3

  • Ellie

    Rose and Dimitri!

  • Nino

    ROMITRI FOREVER!

  • Jeff Dodge

    I refused to vote. I think it’s obvious why.

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      LOL!

    • Teo AnNa

      Because Rose & Dimitri is the best couple? ;)

  • Merina

    Edward/Bella for the win!

  • Cecilia Moya S.

    Rose y Dimitri <3

  • Britt

    To bad adrian and sydney didnt make it i wouldve loved to see that outcome they are my favorite dont get me wrong i love rose and Dimitri but sydney and adrian are adorable and dangerous they have alot more at stake then rose and dimitri did in my opinion. Rose and Dimitri and adrian and sydney dont compare to bella and edward though they never will even though i do like twilight i adore vampire academy and bloodlines

  • Athena

    Rose & Dimitri <3

  • molly

    Gah, neither. Both pairings are awful and depict unhealthy relationships.

    • Hamsas

      How is the relationship between Rose and Dimitri unhealthy?

  • Krista

    Ok, VAfamily, WE JUST HAVE TO WIN THIS FOR ROMITRI, FOR ZOEY & DANILA, FOR THE MOVIE & FOR UUUUSSSS!!! GO GO GO!!!

  • Stelloë

    Mucho love for Edward and Bella BUT it’s ROMITRI’S time to SHINE now ^_^

  • Maddie Price

    I wish #Sydrian won :’(

    • robenchanted

      Me too, but if they did win over Romitri, they couldn’t beat Edward and Bella. Romitri are more popular now, especially because of the movie. :)

  • lily B

    can we redo this but without any teen books?

  • VIP Potterhead

    Personally, I voted for Rose and Dimitri because I’m actually part of the fandom and read the books, yada yada yada. VA is, however, considerably less well known than Twilight, which gives people who have never heard of VA but also dislike Twilight two options: 1) They can vote for Twilight because there is a chance that VA could be worse (but it’s not), or 2) They can vote for VA because they dislike Twilight. Honestly, I’m pretty sure that this might even have more of an impact on the final outcome than anything else.

  • Angela Socolova

    Pose and Dimitri, I love VA,

  • Rose Claudia

    Rose And Dimitri all the way<3 VA family is the best fandom eveeeeer!!!

  • Amanda_Roach15

    I voted for Rose and Dimitri the vampire academy books are by far one of my favorite books ever! I have read both books and at first I loved Twilight but then I read Vampire Academy and realized it’s a way better book and its one that got my emotions running in full gear!!! I’m so happy that right now they are winning 56% (5,802) to 44% (4,553)!!

  • Vasina Elena

    Rose and Dimitri :3

  • Puck

    How pethatic that you guys only vote on dimitri and rose vause you don’t want twilight to win… I bet you are all harry potter fans and hungergames fans ?? And you are jealous that your fandom isn’t going to win ?? Yeah I thought so too. Losers. Fuckers. You guys suck. Fuck off haters cause you ain’t gonna win.

    • Hamsas

      People like you are the reason why the Twilight-fandom has a bad reputation. Shame on you.

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      Hey, I’m a Potter fan, not even a Twilight fan, but I have been kind of sticking for your fandom all throughout this entire tournament because I think it’s unfair for people to disrespect fandoms. I know you are lashing in response to the less than gracious comments that are on here, but that doesn’t mean that your own derisive comments are necessary either. So, you too, play nice

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        Thanks for being considerate and objective, Joan, unlike some kids here..

  • Julia

    Rose and Dimitri!

  • Nik

    Rose and Dimitri are winning. Let’s keep it that way, guys, and show the world that Bella/Edward do NOT win everytime! ;)

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      We already knew that. Jeez.

    • Merina

      But…Twilight is winning…

      • Nik

        Obviously, when I posted that comment, Rose/Dimitri were winning and now they’ve officially won too, so….

  • tracy

    rose and dimitri all the way baby

  • Nina

    Imagine the spectacle in comments if Twilight wins. Gotta admit I’m tempted to vote Bella/Edward.

    • Maya

      I wasn’t going to vote, but it really bugs me when people pick on something or someone, so my sympathy vote was for E/B. I just don’t tolerate fandom hate or disrespect.

  • Becky Burgess

    Rose and Dimitri….Of course. Two total badasses in an epic romance. Uh, yes please :)

  • ZofTheTwiHard

    You know, I could voice my opinion… cause, e.g. my ship’s hated and we’re also losing by 1400 votes…

  • Hannah

    Rose and Dimitri!!

  • Goober

    How are Bella and Edward even in the drawing? Seriously people? Twilight is one of THE worst written books from our time.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Umm… OK.

      • NoOneAskedYou

        Well I’ve seen you comment on almost everything… And you like twilight better than VA. Sooo I guess that tells you don’t leave the house much and have really bad taste in books.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          Stereotypes. Great.

          P.S: To each his own…

  • Jackie Reynolds

    Rose and Dimitri! Woo!

  • Guest

    You wanna talk ships? Okay, let’s talk ships.

    When Edward leaves Bella she curls into a little ball, spends a dangerous night alone in the woods, and spends the next few months in a comatose, often suicidal, state until she gets her man back.

    When Ron leaves Hermione (and yes okay, he leaves Harry, too) she does take her time to silently weep. But she keeps moving, and continues to kick ass because she does have belief in our own skill and knowledge separate from her man.

    SO what’s that you were saying about Bella/Edward being a more profound and ideal relationship than Ron/Hermione??

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      OK. Just to give my perspective…

      Cool story, bro.

      • Ellie

        A twilight fan without a valid counterpoint. This is nothing new.

        Though i do give you credit for finding a picture of her smiling. That must have taken ages.

        • Merina

          Oh my gosh, have some respect for a fellow human being! Come on, that’s just uncalled for. No need to be so insulting, degrading, and downright rude.

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Thanks.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          Not that I don’t have a counterpoint, I just cannot be bothered to voice it because it wouldn’t do any good.

          P.S: Finding that picture didn’t take more than a minute. Just put “cool story bro” into Google Images. Forth line down. God, I love how blind people are…

  • Jackie Reynolds

    I ONLY like Bella because Kristen Stewart plays her in the movie (Don’t hate me because I love Kristen). I HATE Edward/Robert. Kristen is lovely but I honestly think that Rose and Dimitri should win. Juuuuuust sayin’.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Wait… let me get this straight. You like Kris, but you hate Rob. Seriously?

      • http://thetams.tumblr.com/ Sasha

        imo, Robert Pattinson is kind of a jerk. His “Twilight is the worst thing on earth.” thing was funny until he started talking about pathetic the fans are. I’m not one of them, but god, can’t you be a little grateful to the people who allow you to live the lifestyle you do?

        I really love Kristen though. “If you looked at a girl wrong now, I would fly across the room and kill you. I feel so, so protective of a certain thing that women have.”

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          Yeah. But it still comes to me as a bit of a surprise that people hate the one who’s generally loved and love the one that’s generally hated. And I knew Rob was sort of a jerk. I still like him, though. A lot.
          Ah, men.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          And us fans… you have to admit that some of us are pathetic. I mean, he got chased by crazy French girls before they even started filming in 2007! THAT is pathetic. Kinda insane, really. Just like some Directioners are insane enough to cut themselves to sabotage Zayn and Perrie’s engagement… men. Trying to be so macho all the freakin’ time…

      • Jackie Reynolds

        Yep, seriously. Now byebye Twifreak.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          Wow. Ease up, please… my misunderstood sarcasm…

        You haven’t seen anything you’re not God. So shut up.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

  • karla

    Rose and Dimitri! Also just to clarify, to those not familiar with the VA fandom and think that all their votes are coming from anti-twilight voters, you should know that the VA fandom is big…very extremely big! Passionate as well, so please don’t underestimate us.

  • Maria Lucero

    There is so much speculation that Rose and Dimitri will win simply because people don’t like the Twilight series. I’ve read both, and while I did like the Twilight series, they were a little too sappy and predictable. Edward and Bella depended to much on each other. It is true that Dimitri and Rose depend on each other too, but in an entirely different way. They are supportive to each other through their struggles unlike Edward and Bella who went through silly situations and were just desperate. I’ve been a loving and dedicated fan since I first read the Vampire Academy series in my freshman year of high school. That was five years ago. My passion for Richelle Mead’s book series has and will stay loyal to them. The story and the characters are amazing. I would be extremely disappointed if they lost. But I am quite confidant that they won’t. The VA fandom is too strong, especially with the movie adaptation coming so soon. VA Family! Dimitri and Rose!!

  • Sofia Malik

  • Lonette Ranger

    I love how people are complaining about Twilight. Give the book it’s due. This series has made millions and it has inspired other writers as well. Before twilight came out there was not a section of the library for paranormal romance it was all labeled teen fiction. I love the VA books series so much but the fan based is filled with ignorant people who are so upset that twilight is a threat. An then there re those calling the people of the fan base stupid and are making up excuses of why it made it this far. Get over yourself and realize thy just because you don’t like something doesn’t mean it is below you. Seriously guys you are looking like idiots.

    • mstoast

      A series making millions is not always a sign of quality, not at all. And the series inspired the likes of EL James, GUESS YOU GOT US THERE.

      The “excuses” of how Twilight made it this far in the competition are indeed founded in reality. A large amount of Twilight fans literally told people to vote against the biggest fandoms that they saw as threats from the early stages of battleships. Some of them even talked about it right in the comments.

      • Lonette Ranger

        I like the the VA page on Facebook and for the last few weeks its been nothing but. Hey guys go vote! So what’s the difference and no sweetly tell me before twilight how many paranormal romance books there were. Not as many as after the books came out. After twilight came out the number of paranormal romance got so great it has its own freaking section! Seriously stop trying to down a book that has accomplished a lot. If you don’t like the books then hey that’s your opinion but when you disrespect the author and try to his the fact that it has accomplished a lot you look stupid.

    • VAfangirl79

      Wow, the ignorance is your comment. What a way to generalize an entire fanbase! The Vampire Academy fans aka VAfamily is full of great and supportive people who adore the story that actually entertains in so many ways. Everyone has an opinion of course but I’ve read both Twilight and Vampire Academy (fan of both) but they do NOT compare! Twilight has small amounts of action and suspense and Vampire Academy had lot’s of both! I guess it depends on what your preference is because they BOTH have a love story. If BOTH had movies out already besides the books, it would be a fair competition but I know Twilight gained a large fanbase from not just the books but those movies too. But like I said… everyone has their own opinion. :)

      • Lonette Ranger

        I never said everyone sweetheart but a lot of people are. Don’t try to defend the people who are ignorant just because you have a common like.

  • Laura McAsh ⚯͛

    Neither

    is there gunna be another battleship for tv shows/movies?

  • Tarja Wintejyart

    Dimka &roza <3 always
    Twilight actually made this far… ugh much rather seen lily and snaps.

  • Lon3ly♥Girl

    Okay to those who say that VA fandom is organized couldn’t be more wrong! For your information we have a pretty HUGE fan-base out there. Worldwide fan-base. I’m not surprised we are winning, we have won literally every battleship on the internet. And we are not “organized” -what’s that even suppose to mean? No reason to say mean stuff because you are losing. Remember your fandom is much smaller now and i know this because i used to be a fan and now I’m not anymore. So ROMITRI <3 <3 <3 <3

  • Lihua

    I read twilight and I used to be in love with Bella and Edward- I was completely obsessed with everything related to them. But then, I read VA, and I got over my ‘twilight-obsession’ for good. There’s no comparison between VA and Twilight- there’s no comparison between Romitri and BellaXEdward…seriously guys, IMO Rose and Dimitri have a much more well developed relationship, plus there’s the fact that Rose is much less annoying then Bella…(in New Moon, for example…Sometimes I wished I could punch Bella in the face all those times she was ‘suicidal’). Buut, that’s just my opinion.. Anyways, I really recommend VA to everyone who hasn’t read them ~ these books will change your life :D

  • Nancy Relena

    ROMITRI ALL THE WAY. Twilight should just sit down; their 10 seconds of fame in the books and on the big screen is over and done for as well.

  • claudia camila

    Bella and Edward are the best movie couple ever

    • ZayZay

      Not when Vampire Academy comes out… Sorry not sorry

      • Keashaa

        Except for the fact that the guy playing Dimitri is ugly as poop .__. Just my opinion, they should have gotten someone sexier

    I actually read Twilight series first & I loved it thought I could never find a book series that could compare!!! Well I was wrong when I bought the first 3 VA books that were out at the time it was soooo much better!!!! So yes Roza & Dimika forever!!! They have been to hell and back for each other!!!!!

  • Maria Wang

    Oh the humanity…

  • miagrc

    Rose and Dimitri of course! “You can’t force love, I realized. It’s there or it isn’t. If it’s not there, you’ve got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you’ve got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.”

    Please please please all vote for rose and Dimitri! The best remaining couple! There rrelationship is just soo much realler better and stronger they’ve gone through so much together! !! ROMITRI ♥♥♥

  • Lisa Marie Pineda

    Rose n Dimitri for damn sure!

  • Christaline B. Mamaril

    i knew bella / edward would last till the end. ugh. i’m still surprised that ronmione didn’t.

  • raya-de

    So, in one moment the votes for Rose and Dimitri are 10 038 and in the next they are 10 004!?!? What’s going on in Hypable? And Bella and Edward make hundreds for seconds? I say we take that seriously because something really dark is happening with this battle.

  • luvEdElric

    Rose and Dimitri :)

  • Amanda Reichard

    Come on VA Family! Romitri is losing! It would be good promotion for the movie!!!! I understand that Bella/Edward are very popular and iconic, but the movies have all been released, there will be no more. It is time for VA to step up and take the torch and continue the vampire legacy that Twilight helped to create. There will always be more polls for Twilight to win. If this seemed offensive to anyone, I did not mean for it to sound that way, just giving a reason why Romitri deserves to win.

  • Maria Lucero

    This is unbelievable. Rose and Dimitri have to win this!!

  • Lauren

    How did it even come to this! I mean obviously these fandoms have fans but hypable has evolved from a harry potter fansite! I mentally vote Lyra/Will.

  • rosaxx50

    Dimitri/Rose, though I don’t ship them — would have voted for Lyra/Will. But I do like Dimitri and Rose’s story better than B/E’s, and VA better than Twilight. Don’t think I need a better reason than that. Also, I am surprised Dimitri/Rose are (almost) keeping up at the time of commenting. Just ~1000 votes in it!

  • Clouds

    Why on earth would you pick the sparkly, gay vampire and mouth breather or the tall, Russian God that is Dimitri and the beautiful, sarcastic Rose.
    Please I’d fuck the Russian any day over sparkles

    I’m done with this. I’m comparing these to the MTV Movie Awards, it’s not about quality, it’s about popularity. Often Popular =/= Good.

    I haven’t read the VA series, I might try it but I’m really over the teen vampire romance books and I’ve heard the first few are a struggle to get through because the characters are really immature.

    I’ve read Twilight and I’m so done with it. The books aren’t particularly well written, the characterization is ok, the plot is ok, and the Bella/Edward relationship is unhealthy (but disguises itself as romantic). If I wanted an unhealthy relationship in the Final Round, I should’ve just voted for Romeo/Juliet… at least that’s written well.

    I’m not voting because (like I said) I am just done and over with this. All of the legitimate pairings got knocked out a while ago. Now we’re just down to two pairings — one that I hate and one that I really don’t care about.

    Let’s have a Slash competition next. The pairings can be from anything (book, movie, TV), the only rule is that it must be M/M or F/F. It will be hilarious. I wouldn’t be surprised if the next Battleship is TV though :)

    • whatever

      VA isn’t immature in the first few books, it’s Rose who was a bit immature in the first book, but changed drastically after her friend gets killed and after she realises what life is like. But the book is perfect, I’m telling you. Give it a try and see for yourself :D

      • mstoast

        You mean that a heroine in a contemporary vampire book has actual character development? Surely you jest!

  • Chrissy

    How is Edward and Bella winning?!?!?!?! Dimitri and Rose all the way!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mist

    Seriously, Twilight fever should have died down by now. Old news. Read a new book series, all you Twilight fans. You wouldn’t be voting the same way if you did.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Stereotypical. Great, I LOVE that.

  • Amelia Flores Alejandre

    Rose & Dimitri <3

  • Rachel Stroble

    I really like Bella and Edward, but why? They have won everything for the past how many years. I’d like to see someone new win and Rose and Dimitri have every right too. I’m not hating on Twilight. I’m just saying it would be nice if Rose and Dimitri won. Especially since the Vampire Academy movie is coming out in February.

  • Sabrina

    Romitri all the way. They kick butt while Bella and Edward sit on the couch.

  • Shivana Soodeen

    -_- the fact the Bella/Edward is so far up over Rose/Dimitri is an utter shaaaame!!!

  • Kaya

    No offence but due to the popularity of Twilight, it’s obvious that it will win, which kind of sucks. I think personally that it’s rigged. Do another one without Bella and Edward, as they are too popular for it to be fair competition. I like Twilight, but I just think that it is now to overrated, so I think you should start again and exclude Bella and Edward.

  • Poiplepanda

    Rose and Dimitri!!! <3<3

  • Megan

    I sincerely can’t believe that such a horrible depiction of a relationship that is the Bella/Edward situation got this far. I really can’t. The relationship is abusive, manipulative, and just plain frightening and has been exposed as such by thousands of people and publications of varying levels of popularity and influence. And the fact that it is in the final battle and winning out by over 5,000 votes doesn’t make me question the voters or the respective fandoms, but integrity of tournament. Something just doesn’t seem right, here…

  • Keashaa

    Soooo, all the comments (except a few here and there) are voting for (my favorite) RoMitri…..but somehow twilight is winning? Why? Like I use to be on the twilight train until 7th grade. Then I read VA. and if you think about it, there’s no way bella and that thing should be winning (team jacob) Bella and the fairy made all their trial, what they went through wasn’t serious nor real. Pixie boy didn’t have to leave bella. Bella didnt have to jump off a cliff. and if none of that happened they wouldn’t of been introduced to the voloturi. What Dimitri and Rose went through were real problems that they couldn’t control, their love is better than twilights…..so how the FUCK IS TWILIGHTS FAIRY SHIT WINNING!!!! I’M FUCKING PISSED!!

    • Shivana Soodeen

      PREACH IT! Its the fucking truth! While the Twilight series wasn’t bad…compared to VA it shouldn’t have even reached this far!

      • keashaa

        Thank you! And i’m seeing this same one person comment saying: “You guys are just picking on twilight cause you know it’s better and you don’t want to admit VA sucks.” Ohhhh! I swear if I could reach through this screen!!… I’m too serious about my fandoms.

  • Rose/Dimitri<3

    I am pretty sure there are more Rose/Dimitri shippers than Bella/Edward! Shippers assemble! Let us defeat our enemy ship!

    How the FUCK are bella and edward winning?! their whole relationship is stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rose & Dimitri actually had ups and downs in their battle for love. It took them 6 whole novels to be together and bella & edward half of ONE -____- That’s just MY opinion though, so you twi-fucks can hop off my comment because you won’t receive ANY fucks from me.

  • whatever

    Twilight is the worst book written in history of human writing and S. Meyer should have never been given a pencil nor should that happen ever again! And Edward and Bella suck big time! The way they were written is like a desperate person writing just to get out their feelings. And the book is so weak, horribly written and totally anti-feministic. The girl unable to live without the guy, the guy leaves, she finds another guy to survive until he returns and even tries to commit suicide, while their love is so strong that I wanna puke. And she ‘was born to become a vampire’ blah blah blah, she can’t walk because ‘humans’ are so clumsy and whatnot’ and he had to protect her all the time etc. etc.!! On the other hand we have VA, a strong, perfectly written book series, with a strong heroine and a strong relationship between Roza and Dimka. They accepted their destiny, that they can’t be together, until he was turned (when she had to kill him to fulfill his wish but, thank God, she went to hell and back to find a cure and etc etc, read the books if you haven’t). Twilight is a zero even to my 3 year old cousin’s writing, so don’t you dare compare it to VA – a masterpiece. And the main thing, as Rose said herself: ‘I would rather die, than be a vampire.’ Full point in Bella’s ovaries! :D Also, if there was no Bella/Edward/Jacob love triangle, there would be no twilight, there is no story aside it. While if there was no Rose/Dimka love story, VA would still exist and you’d get to read about that universe and it’s badassery (only without the BP – 4th book). Have a nice day.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Wow… now that’s a comment war starter right there. Damn. Ease up. man. Seriously.

  • megamonster

    This isn’t really fair cause half of Twilights franchise is their movies. And the movies are hugely popular. So fans of the movie will be voting on this too. Where VA as awesome as it is, isn’t as big yet. Not a lot of people know about it.

  • andrena

    bella and edward don’t have anything on rose and dimitri though. like, seriously. they had their cute moments, but rose and dimitri’s love is just epic. they definitely deserve to win.

  • lana

    I’d take Ron/Hermione over both finalists in a hearbeat. They’re cute and sweet.

  • Anonymus

    And THIS is why you should vote Romitri.

  • sammy

    Guys no matter how hard we try they’re still winning. It seems so weird. When you look at the comments, 90% of them are Rose&Dimitri. But when you look at the poll, when Rose&Dimitri get 1 vote, Edward&Bella get 20. How isn’t this weird? Why are they winning everything. Twilight is over. The movies sucked. The book was poorly written. Everybody knows about them but it’s just not good enough. Please Twihards, please red books that aren’t Twilight. Read A Song of Ice and Fire, read Delirium, read Divergent, read The Hunger Games, read Shatter Me, and please read Vampire Academy.

    And you’ll understand that Twilight is not the best book series in the universe. Most of us were like you, we loved Twilight at some point. But we read other books and moved on, we grew up and we saw that Twilight is actually so overrated. Edward and Bella don’t have an epic love.

    Rose and Dimitri have an adult and a very interesting relatitonship. And they’re not vampires contrary to the popular belief. They’re warriors. Read about them. Read about Sydney&Adrian. I’m sure you’ll love them. And all the ships lost to Twilight, you know you’re way better than this fandom. But we should worry, worry that they’ll always win if they can’t grow up and ruin our ships.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      FYI, I read the Hunger Games and I’m gonna read Divergent and VA. Well, I don’t know about the votes… maybe people are scared to voice their opinion and they just vote. We’re not exactly the warmest community to contribute to…

  • Chrissy

    Twilight is absolutely awful compared to the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series. If you’re a Twilight fan, and you’re bashing VA/BL before you’ve even read them, you’re being ridiculous.
    Twilight is actually really badly written, whereas, VA/BL is actually much better written, and is actually historically accurate in so many ways, because Richelle Mead, the author of the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series, actually read up about mythology and folklore on Vampires, and then incorporated them into her story.
    Twilight doesn’t even deserve to win this, there is nothing romantic about a 108 year old Vampire seducing an 18 year old human girl – nope, not at all.
    Rose and Dimitri, however, actually have chemistry, and love. It’s all so much more realistic and beautiful in everyway, compared to the almost vile relationship of Edward and Bella, if I’m honest.
    Twihards need to sit down now.
    Rose and Dimitri FTW!

    • Becca

      I agree, VA is much better written.

  • Janina

    Dimitri and Rose <3
    The best badass couple ever xD

  • Becca

    As someone who’s read both series, I can honestly say that I was a major Twihard… Before I read Vampire Academy. Before Twilight, I had never really been into supernatural stories, and there was just something so innocent and simple about the story that made it easy to enjoy. I feel like it was a great launching pad. That being said, I felt like the characters in Twilight were almost too perfect in a way, to the point that they didn’t seem real because, lets face it, no one is. That’s one of the things I love most about Vampire Academy, no one is perfect, and they don’t try to seem like they are. They face struggles that are bigger than their relationships, they are more concerned with issues larger than themselves. As for the couples, I always felt like Bella was whiny and needy, and, not that we don’t all have moments like that, it seemed one-dimensional. Edward, though a slightly more intriguing character, still felt flat and static. To me, it never felt like their relationship changed, it was just like, deeply in love, depressed, deeply in love. On the other hand, you have Vampire Academy’s Rose and Dimitri. Their relationship grows from (forced) indifference to lust to love. You can absolutely see a major difference (other than the obvious) from the beginning of their relationship to the end of the books and it is evident that they would not be where they are ‘today’ without every little thing that happened to them. So let me end by saying this, I DO NOT hate Twilight, but I DO feel the storyline and character development in Vampire Academy is much more compelling (like that VA Family) than Twilight. Go ROMITRI!!

  • Chrissy Dellar

    I’m going to say straight out, i’ve read every single book of both series of books, and i find both of them fairly week as vampire books. So everybody arguing VA vs Twilight, they both pale in comparison to The Vampire Chronicles.

  • Becca

    Dear… Everyone,

    It’s a game, can we stop bickering like 2-year-olds and act like our own age? This is getting to be ridiculous, everyone’s entitled to their own opinion and, at the end of the day, we’ll all live even if our favorite couple doesn’t win.

    Thanks,
    (Insert cheesy lyric about being friends or surviving)

  • Kerry Louise

    People are saying that its unfair Twilight are in the battle because they have loads of voters. That’s immature. Obviously I don’t think they should win but if they do they won fair and square. More voters. Simple as that. I don’t understand how people can be saying its unfair….

    • mstoast

      It’s because some people in the Twilight fandom are spamming votes and running bots. Hypable even talked about it on their Twitter.

  • Toni

    Look, I know that Rose and Dimitri are losing the pole, but the only people really losing are those who thought it was appropriate to vote for Bella and Edward.

  • ilana pop

    rose and dimitri <3

    Are you guys kidding me? Yesterday it was all about Romitri and today Beward is 8.000 ahead? o.o Jesus Christ, how is this happening?!

          I apologise. But I really have no idea… now it’s going all weird…

          • nikoliapapa

            Pft. Whatever. I just hate the idea of fandoms fighting each other. Perhaps the system has some problem because of too many votes?

            Perhaps.

            I guess we’ll see later the final results.

  • Femme

    Romitri <3 I've read Twilight and it was not bad. But it was not meant to be a movie (sorry). It was meant to stay as a fantasy, a dream, a 'isn't that sweet'. It was nice, but not a masterpiece and def. not movie material. And VA? Well I'm not sure if it was movie material (it'll probably just be a typical Hollywood money grab YA crap movie) but I'll say this. I love Rachelle Mead's writing, VA's one og the only YA series I can read more than once. And no offence the relationship between Rose/Dimitri is far deeper than EB. But EB is by far dar the most popular/recognised ship

  • KatiaRoses

    Romitri of course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DEp

    Romitri <3 The twilight is so overrated!

  • Ornela Pattinson

    “Something dark it’s going on with this poll” Yeah, you caught me. I’ll admit it, I’m using my magical powers so that Bellward can win!

    What’s happening is fair. For the moment Twilight has more fans than VA but when VA becomes a movie,too it may become a bigger fandom than Twilight’s fandom. But for now just chill out. Twilighters are no witches!!

    • mstoast

      Wrong. Hypable confirmed on their Twitter that there were bots spamming votes in favor of Twilight. People of multiple fandoms have been suspecting it for a while and it turned out to be true.

  • http://thestorybehindthebookcover.blogspot.com/ Martina Koleva

    I’m a huge VA fan and I would love it if they win, sadly that seems more and more unlikely by the minute. And yes I’m irritated that Bella and Edward are going to win but this is an online poll where people vote for what they know. Most of the series/books featured in the poll aren’t all that famous compared to Twilight so of course Bella/Edward are going to have so much votes.

    Like I said, it’s an online poll, stop acting like it’s the end of the world…

  • Adrianivashkov

    Just vote for Dimitri/Rose. I’m orginally a true Sydrian fan, but if you have to choose between Bella/Edward and Rose/Dimitri- Pick Rose/Dimitri. Because Twilight can suck it compared to Vampire Academy ;) (Sorry guys, just telling the truth.) ;)

  • Liz

    I read people complaining about Twihards , but looking through comments I’m forever scared off from reading VA books.

  • Ornela Pattinson

    So if this a poll about the best couple then Percy and Annabeth should win. Percy preferred to fall into Tartarus than being away from her, he saved her life and she saved his. They did everything together. She was strong he was smart, they completed each other. Unfortunately Percy Jackson series has not much fans, so they didn’t win.

    Nobody complained about Pecabeth, but everybody is complaining about Bellward. Ans everyone is accusing twilight fans that they are doing strange things so they can win. They also say that twilight is popular only because it is a movie. Percy Jackson is also a movie but regardless it lost. So Edward decided against his nature for Bella. He gave her life meaning, and she saved his soul. He loved her so much that he preferred to leave her so that he would not hurt her. This was a mistake but everybody makes mistakes. He was ready to kill his self when he thought she was dead because she was his life!
    But everybody says they are not a good couple! Come on, people! Don’t be so snob. Percabeth and Bellward are the best couples in my opinion. And that’s the point, everybody has his opinion and we have the right to express it as long as we don’t insult the others

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Couldn’t put it better myself.

  • Anna

    VOTE FOR ROMITRI
    Romitri is LIFE

  • Angelika

    People, vote for Rose and Dimitri! They can’t lose :( They’re such a beautiful couple, they gone through so much, they definitely deserve to win.

  • Becky Lee Whitehouse

    This is probably because most people haven’t read the Vampire Academy books… Rose and Dimitri are MUCH better than Edward and Bella… Just saying. :)

  • twilighter <3

    bella and edward *__*

  • Mollymay4599

    Rose and Dimitri all the way!!!!!!!!

  • Clau

    VA fans relax is just poll, I want Rose/Dimitri Win this too, but this seen very unlikely,, regardless if they loss this poll, this is not going to change than we think than they are the best pairing, and this poll is just about who is more popular not who is better, and we must stop insulting Twilight fans, is not making us look good.

  • Chris

    I’m a fan of Twilight but I understand a lot of your frustration.
    However, when you bad mouth Twilight it makes fans more determined to
    stand up for something they love. Saying you think VA is better is fine,
    it might be. But the constant dissing of Twi, and more importantly the people who like it,
    is probably why it’s winning. Not many of us paid attention to this poll
    until we heard about the comments. ;)

  • Exécutrice

    Rose and Dimitri, of course !

  • Jackie Reynolds

    Rose and Dimitri should definitely win. Much better than a stupid abusive relationship within ugly sparkly shitface.

  • Jackie Reynolds

    Oh, and the VA fandom ROCKS!

  • Sherri

    Kinda seems to me like most fans of VA have read both series, yet fans of Twilight havent even tried VA. Just seems a little biased to me.

  • Pipwig

    Okay, I might as well continue vote for the losing ship. At least all these fandoms put up a fight to take down Twilight.

  • Kass

    For you Twilight haters JEALOUSY ISN’T GOOD FOR YOU ! haha we won !

    • Sherri

      It isn’t over just yet. ;)

    • mstoast

      You WERE winning through cheating, like, actual cheating. Hypable confirmed on their twitter that bots have been used in Twilight’s favor. Ahh, justice.

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        Ahh, the shame. Pure, universal shame.

    • Veronica

      Um, Vampire Academy is winning so haha back at ya? :)

  • VAfanfirstandformost

    Ok something is wrong with this battle b/c I got on my computer this morning to vote in the final battle and it will not let me vote. I have not voted in this battle yet therefore I should be able to vote. My vote would be for Rose/Dimitri. I am very unhappy about this since my couple is behind right now. I’ve read both series and if I came across VA first I never would have finished the first book of Twilight. Rose/Dimitri are by far the better couple!

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Refresh it a few times. Hopefully it should work.

    Wow what a bunch of CRY BABIES ! It’s really pathetic !

    I’m not a Twihard nor a TwiHater……….so don’t hate me

    But I love the VA series and Romitri is my OTP….

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Fair enough. Vote as you please.

  • Sherri

    One of the only ways I ca n see Twilight winning is because that seems to be fir a younger audience while VA is more mature. So while the Twi fans are out enjoying their weekend, they dint have anything better to do than to cast votes here. Yet us fans of VA actually have jobs to go to.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Are you saying that all TwiHards are kids? Thanks, really.

      • Sherri

        I was saying that appears to be the majority.

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          Fair point. I may be a part of that majority (depending on how you class teenagers), but there are people my age who still are mature. So I need that clarified… please.

  • becsy

    Prepare for the onslaught of hate when the winner is announced.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      True. No matter who it is that wins, someone will hate. Even if it was like, Percabeth, for instance.

  • Hannah

    As much as I want Rose and Dimitri to win, you have to be aware that the Twilight fan base is way too big to compete with when they’ve already got all their movies out worldwide plus their books.

  • ZofTheTwiHard

    OK, I’ll put it this way. It’s almost impossible to beat us voting. I know it’s kinda obvious, but people still ignore that. But we are hard to beat, because… I’ll say it.
    Because we are BAT-SHIT INSANE when it comes to voting. I apologise to the competition and all the people that find this to be unfair or screwed up. I really am, especially even if I don’t agree with it sometimes. But I can’t change our fandom.

  • aayusi

    rose and dimitri!

  • Amber

    Come on VA fans dimitri and rose have to win yes loved twilight but I’m over that where are the romitri fans at ?

  • rosa

    rose and dimitri! <3

  • Dreamer

    I was really sad Sydrian didn’t make it and as much as I liked VA I wasn’t really attached to the characters like I am currently in Bloodlines~ Probably because I was late in the fandom and I actually read VA because I liked Bloodlines book1! So I liked VA series but my attachment is a different story whereas in Twilight I was super late in the fandom, yes, but when I realized, I was hit hard! I have to agree the connection is different~ Although I won’t probably read TWI again, because the novelty already wore off for me, but between this face off, I’ll go with whom I was more fond of~ Although really to be honest they’re both nothing compared to Sydrian T^T They’re love is against all odds! They need more fans~!! T^T

    • Veronica

      Well…if Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters the movie does well in theatres this February, you might be looking at a potential Frostbite sequel movie. Which also means a potential Adrian to be casted so…:P

      • Dreamer

        O.M.G!!! O.o NNNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! T^T That would be a nightmare!! They have to search the entire world if they want to cast Adrian perfectly!!!! Jace was already butchered not Adrian too… :’(

  • Tamis

    Rose And Dimka!!! ♥♥

  • Mirra

    This is actually making me nauseous. Bella and Edward over Romeo and Juliet, Elizabeth and Darcy, and probably the most shocking to me considering the modern popularity, Hazel and Augustus? This is not right.

  • Elizabeta

    It’s not nice of owners that they are cheating!!!! I don’t care if owners are Twilight fans, but reach votes for Bella and Edward and then reduce votes for Romitri… coz we’ve been on 17 000 votes a long time ago and you reduced it on 16 000….. go to hell!!! -.-”"”

  • Gisela Chim

    Well I am a fan of both Twilight and Vampire Academy read both series and I must say that to me they are both diferent, lets not just go by who is more bad ass they both have different story lines and yes I voted for twilight just because I loved the romance in it and I was super thorn between both and also if twilight wasn’t here I would have voted for Romitri all the way I like rose strength and dimitri loyalty to me they are both the best on their different category so I will always be loyal to both

  • Mirra

    This shit is fixed!

  • Jessica

    It won’t let me vote :/

    • XLovelyFantasy

      Try going back to the main BattleShips page where all the BatttleShips articles are listed and clicking back into the final battle page. That usually helped me vote in the other rounds when it wouldn’t let me vote. For some reason clicking in from a posted link didn’t work, usually. But I’m just guessing…I hope that you can vote soon!

  • Risha Rae

    So mad that I have no way to vote… Dimka and Rose, here’s to hoping you don’t lose due to my one vote. <3 I'll try and check back later to see if the glitch is worked out.

  • Dani

    (this is with the assumption that people have read both series) I can’t see how after reading both series you could pick Edward and Bella. Personally as a couple Rose and Dimitri are far more interesting and complex. Although I won’t lie I’m an Adrian fan.

  • Kristina

    How do you vote? I don’t see anywhere to click on?? Help!!

    Total Voters: 49,367

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Same here! What’s happening?

      • Lon3ly♥Girl

        What happens is that Hypable tweeted that they were some bot votes from Twilight side and they changed the system so no one can cheat! That’s what happened!

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          Right. Damn, I’m pissed off, actually! And not just cause we’re losing, but because some of us cheated! You know, some of us are voting nicely. Damn those fake bitches.

          • Lon3ly♥Girl

            Your fandom has some crazyyyy people :P

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            I already knew that :D

  • Mel

    Rose and dimitri at the moment have more votes and somehow are losing in percentage…something is weird….

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      I know, right?

  • ZofTheTwiHard

    OK, now I’m confused. What the heck is going on (not that I care about us losinge – this doesn’t even add up mathematically)???

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      *losing. Damn spelling.

  • miranda

    Rose/Dimitri. But my question is how is it they have more votes but is at 37%. That makes no sense…..

  • Barbara

    There’s something really wrong with this poll and I mean that mathematical.
    Since when is 18,041 plus 15,334 49,397??
    And why is the amount off votes for Rose/Dimitri higher than for Edward/Bella, but the percentages for Edward/Bella higher than for Rose/Dimitri??

  • nigga

    YES WERE WINNING! #ROMITRI

  • ZofTheTwiHard

    Wait… did you people delete half of out votes?

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      *our…

      • Guest

        No Hypable did because they were some illegal votes of Twilight fans! *clap*

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          That’s who I meant by “people”. Shit.

  • Lon3ly♥Girl

    Shame on you Twilight fans!!! Hypable twitted that they were bot votes from Twilight’s side. Is this how you “win”.

  • Jessy Fanny

    Votez Romitri!!!

  • Lizzie

    Haha i was confused and thought they rigged the voting becuase VA has more votes but less percentage which made absolutley no sense but saw the note that was made that they haven’t updated the system yet. I’m relieved

  • φροσακι..

    twilight fans=cheaters… cant even win without cheating!!! Shame on you!! Rose and Dimitri rocks and you know it….. #VAfamily <3

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Don’t know about the latter, but it’s not the fault of every single Twihard. Please, be more specific.

  • Professorherondale

    How can Rose & Dimitri have 3,000 more votes but be behind by 26%? Is this rigged?

    What about Thomas and Theresa? Or Thomas and Brenda???

  • Lon3ly♥Girl

    why can’t i vote?

  • ZofTheTwiHard

    OK, Twihards, listen up. Whoever rigged this should come clean. Like, right now. Cause us proper voters have defended you for not doing shady shit, and you betrayed us. Did you really think we can’t win without cheating? And I though it was the opposing side that underestimated us.
    Jesus Christ, seriously? Now I have just two things to say:
    1st: I, on the behalf of the whole fandom, apologise to all the ships that lost to us through cheating. A lot of us had no idea.
    And 2nd: I’m ashamed of you, you cheating bitches. I’m ashamed FOR you. Cause if this is how we roll, I will not be a part of a fandom. I will just love what I love.
    I’m out.

    • raya.de

      We know that not all Twilight fans have a hand in this dirty work. But it’s so…so many ships lost for no reason and their fandoms got mad. I can’t say for sure that this was done before and not only in the final battle but… it’s not good. Fans, vote from your heart, not from a computer robot or something(I’m not familiar with exactly the way this happened so…computer robot xD).

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        Hell, yes! I love winning, but not with cheating! And now us (moderatelly normal, but honest) Twihards look like idiots!
        Gosh, I’m so mad… and ashamed. Jeez.

    • mstoast

      As a fan of several of the ships that lost through cheating, thank you for this, even though you shouldn’t have to apologize for those cheating a**holes :)
      It’s so good to know that some of twilight fans from Hypable are honest and willing to admit when people from their fandom did something gross. People like you help to give a better and more mature impression of Twihards.

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        Thanks. And you’re right. We want to be taken seriously, and they just sabotage that EVERY single time. Damn them.

  • Stephanie <3

    wait, who is Lyria and Will? If it won against Tris and Tobias then I’m curious to read the series :)..anyone knows?

    • Shelby

      Theyre from the series His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. The first book is called the Golden Compass or in some countries The Northern Lights. I have read both Divergent and His Dark Materials and I prefer Divergent but I ship Lyra and Will more than Tris and Four.

      • Stephanie <3

        Oh ok, thanks!

        • S.K.Hansen

          Just to warn you, Will doesn’t make any appearance until the second book. Still, it is an excelent series. :)

      You definitely should! They’re fascinating, especially as the sequels more forward.

  • Stephanie <3

    I read the Twilight books and i used to be obsessed with them..but those were the first books I’ve ever read so i guess that was why…It’s just a phase..nothing more..oh and has everyone seen why twilight is so popular? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4uuGvmAxTI there if you haven’t.

  • WhatAStupidWorldWeLiveIn

    What kind of stupid world do we live in if people seriously think a book about sparkly wingless fairies is considered better literature the Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy should have won that round. Sad sad stupid lack of taste world

  • Shelby

    Wow reading the comments and people can be really freaking mean. I like both ships and yes I voted for one over the other but I have read and enjoy both series and just dont understand why people are being so horrible. Whoever wins I’ll be happy… so nah nah na boo boo!

    • Shelby

      You dont see me bashing people because my OTP didn’t make it into the final…I mean come on people..

  • tasnim

    the twilight fans dont even bring up twilight anymore! its the other people who always go about making twilight references.
    So go ahead and make one of your victims of fandom battles. But i remember when i started i reading, i read for the sake of reading something nice, not to criticise it like everyone does now a days. It’s sad okay?

  • Twilight2402

    Twilight is the best. If you ask people which one they think is more popular everyone is gonna say Twilight.

    • Lon3ly♥Girl

      Have you read Vampire Academy? Obviously no. And Twilight is famous for a WHOLE new different reason

      • Twilight2402

        I don’t really wanna read it anyway, people are just voting against Twilight, half of them don’t really care who wins as long as it isn’t Twilight. Which is stupid, just don’t vote for anyone rather than show ur hatred. Is that what they do all day, look for competitions which Twilight is in and spread hatred???

        • Lon3ly♥Girl

          So? What if they were a couple? I’m sorry but their “chemistry” SUCKED! Vampire Academy hasn’t been out yet so how can you judge it? For your information Vampire Academy has a HUGE worldwide fan base and only a fool would say otherwise. People are voting against twilight yes, but pretty much EVERYONE is voting for Romitri. Look at the comments!!! You Twilight fans are crazy, i can’t believe you hacked to the voting just for Twilight to win! Your movie is over, is about time to let other fandoms step up!!!

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Let’s assess this:

            They had great chemistry. And, if they’ll ever be in a movie again, still do.

            Why are you judging which is better if, as you said, it’s not out yet? No one’s saying that you don’t have a fanbase. But we do, too.

            Not everyone voices their opinion – only lunatics have the guts to do it.

            Do NOT throw that on everyone, because the honest Twihards, me included, had no idea. It’s the problem of those crazy bitches.

            And yes. It is over, but not forgotten. But I’d like to see another side of vamps. We had more of the fascination, you’ll probably have more of the horror. So… let’s watch/read.

      • Twilight2402

        Also Kristen and Rob were an actual couple and they looked like a couple too and had great chemistry but “Romitri” just look like these goths, not actors.

        • medash

          Yet she cheated on him, & didn’t they break up?

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Her point is still valid, because that shit happened after the movie was finished, thus the initial effect of the chemistry was the same as in the others. Plus, that first time they got back together. Now I have no idea of what’s going on (well I do, but the point is still the same), but I don’t believe it’s their end yet. I guess we’ll get to see that later.

    • medash

      Because there’s been moviesa about it, VA is barely getting in the movie game. I’ve read both VA/Twilight. I barely survived Twilight, IMO VA is more well rounded, more better written…

      • Twilight2402

        i don’t think so, most people prefer Twilight anyway.

        • medash

          Of course Twilight is more popular, it’s just a love story, a creepy one at that. VA actually has a plot, which you would know if you maybe bothered to read the book instead of just bashing.

    • au81

      Popularity or not, they are losing by 4000 votes. Obviously not everyone thinks it it “the best”.

      Not really sure if it’s winning. There’s a warning not to look at the percentages but the actual vote count. There’s something strange though. Earlier today Bella/Edward had over 26 000 votes and now they are down to 15 000…

      • Lon3ly♥Girl

        Hypable tweeted that they were some illegal votes from the twilight fans and they changed the system as well deleted all these votes. And Twilight is not winning, VA is winning -hypable tweeted

    i heard there was some cheating going on…that the Twilight fandom had set up a computer bot to multiply vote counts and reverse the votes for Vampire Academy. And fans believed their fandom was being fair. Wow.

    • Liderc

      Can’t reverse votes, but I’ve heard there was some twilight cheating but it was all from the same person, so they were apparently able to remove all the votes from that person. Seems they’re on even ground now.

  • TiffaniAC

    Why bother going into major discussions about which is the ‘better’ fandom and which votes have been tampered with? Personally, I know the VA fandom is more dedicated because a lot of people do, indeed, vote for the movie while not having read any of the books. You can clearly see the actual, true difference if you just check out the rating details on BOOKsites such as Goodreads.

  • Jj

    Can someone tell me what’s wrong with this poll?

    Rose/Dimitri (38%, 19,270 Votes)

    - Bella/Edward (62%, 15,521 Votes)

    I copied and pasted this, so it’s not like I just read it wrong…

    • https://twitter.com/#!/HarriSargeant Harri Sargeant

      From just under the poll: “Note: The percentages and total number of votes are not up to date. The accurate numbers are the number of votes per ‘ship. The percentages and total number of votes will be regenerated after the poll closes by Hypable staff.”

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      Hypable subtracted the bot votes from the Twilight side, so now the percentages don’t match the total votes.

    • Liderc

  • Sarah Gilligan

    - Rose/Dimitri (39%, 20,121 Votes
    )- Bella/Edward (61%, 15,665 Votes)

    Are the percentages swapped perchance?

    • medash

      yup, we won’t know the actual percentage until the voting closes.

  • Rose/DimitriFTW

    Vote Rose/Dimitri guys! So much better than an emotionless damsel in distress with bad judgments and sparkly fairy princess!!!!!

  • Lourdes Cabrera

    This thing isn’t letting me vote and I haven’t voted yet. So, hopefully the Hypable staff check this because I’m voting for ROSE and DIMITRI. Though the comment, though.

    • Stix

      Had the same problem this morning and still wasn’t able to vote ._.
      But ROMITRI! <3

  • rosetta

    VOTE ROSE AND DIMITRI !

  • Kelsey

    How does Rose and Dimitri have over 20,000 votes but only 39% while Bella and Edward have over 15,000 votes but have 61%?? Something doesn’t seem right here.

    • medash

      They won’t show the actual percentage until the voting is over.

  • casnat

    If it were down which book has the Best ratings VA would win, check Goodreads if you’d like. Yet, this is a ship battle so everyone will have different opinions. Just by reading some of the Twilight fans comments, they’re being unfair. Some have even said that they will never read the VA series, so how can you compare the two when you only have one side of the story? Some VA fans have said that they’ve read both of the series, and have chosen “Romitri.”

    Whether fans like it or not Twilight is over. Yes, VA series is finished as well (not counting the spin-off series), but to fans it feels like they get to experience the beginning of this journey all over again with the release of the movie. Who knows maybe is time for VA to step into the spotlight and shine. Maybe give a new POV on this whole “Vampire” genre.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Yeah. It’s not like the world will forget, but I think everyone needs a break. And I’d like to see another side of vampires. I’d like that.

      • medash

        I don’t think they meant for twihards to just forget everything. It’s like “You’re time came and went. Now lets play nice and give someone else a chance.”

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          I know. That’s what I meant.

    • Lana

      Doubt it, unfortunately the trailer doesn’t give any reasons for future installments. If the films turn out to be Twilight quality, prepare to get the same treatment. But if they do make a decent film, then I guess you’re right.

      • medash

        I keep hearing the same complaint about how the trailer makes it look cheesy. It was only a one minute clip, there’s still like 6 months for them to come and blow us away w/ a proper trailer.

        • Lana

          Yeah, but sometimes one minute is enough for deduction (The Mortal Instruments,Beautiful Creatures). The only trailer that looks decent to me is one of Divergent and I even haven’t read the latter but the trailer got me hooked. I’d be happy to be wrong, but so far my expectations are low.

          • medash

            Really? When I saw the “Divergent” trailer I got straight up “Hunger Games” so that pretty much turned me
            off of that franchise.

            Not saying HG is bad.

          • Lana

            Well, I wonder how you felt when you watched Hunger Games trailer, cos the genre is not Suzanne’s creation. The Running Men, Battle Royale ? I’m not saying Hunger Games is bad too, but similarities happen.

          • medash

            Now you’re just twisting my words. I never said she created the genre, I just said “Divergent” reminded me of HG. In BR they don’t choose from 12 different sections, its one class from one school which made it harder for them because they all knew each other, and the parents were okay with it. Unlike HG where they all knew each other for what a week? I’ve never read “The Running Men” so can’t comment on that.

            Well maybe it’s just me, but I could really care less about “Divergent”

          • ZofTheTwiHard

            Same here. My sis screaming, I’m here like OK… don’t do too much for me…

      • medash

        & besides look at TMI, that movie looks cheesy, it flopped yet their still going to film the sequel in September.

  • FGFHgf

    Rose and Dimitri!!!!

  • Rony:)

    dont do vs. Thats is the problem and will be a big problem in the future

  • Ella

    Why can’t I vote???

  • minna

    ok how the heck is this possible:Rose/Dimitri (39%, 20,470 Votes)- Bella/Edward (61%, 15,691 Votes) ? do they need lesson in math or something

    • ff501998

      Read the note below the votes, only the actual votes per ship is correct, the percentages and total votes will be fixed after the poll ends. It is b/c earlier some bots had hacked or messed up the system by inflating Twilight’s votes ….

      Now come to think of it, it is also what happened in the battles between Lyra/Will v Ron/Hermione and Lyra/Will v Tris/Tobias, Lyra/Will’s numbers were so inflated and when they came in battle against Bella/Edward, suddenly they hardly had any votes and Bella/Edward won with huge numbers. :(
      Sorry, not being rude or anything, just an observation.

  • Charlyn Quidato

    Rose and Dimitri forever!

  • Irfon

    So twilight fans cheated. using bots to vote. If they’re doing this wiht battleships on hypable. (not like they’re going to put this on the covers of the next print run) I wonder if they did it for far bigger stuff. Still series is done now, it will only be in stuff like this.

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Just the thought makes me ashamed.

    • Liderc

      I think in their tweet they said it was only one cheater, he/she got too greedy and did thousands of votes with the same IP connection. So I wouldn’t hold it against all of them.

      • Irfon

        It is usually one person that spoils the fun for everyone. Firstly, it denies twilight fan a honest victory, because the second cheating happens, it’s done. even if cheating is lets say 10% of the over all votes.

        It also spoils the fun for other fandoms. How are they meant to compeate when some in fandom cheat.

        But, yes here there may hve only been 1. But in other awards, ones fans can actually brag about, I’d bet cheating is more common, and yes, it’s still a small part of fandom. Ruining it both for the competition and their fellow fans

  • Jeanette Jensen

    Rose and Dimitri <3

  • Marija Ana FRaničević

    rose and dimitri

  • Reyna

    Wow, I can’t believe battleships is getting so damn intense. It was supposed to be fun guys!

    • reneecutie

      Well that was before people started getting so sensitive. I love both series and I may prefer one couple more than the other but I’m not going to completely bash them! It’s kinda sad to see so much hate :-(

  • twihard

    Edward and Bella

  • ZofTheTwiHard

    It’s kinda weird that since Twilight got half their votes taken off, their votes have been at a stand-still while VA flew ahead… one more conspiracy theory fory ya. I think the whole Bttleships should be cancelled, because it wasn’t fair from all sides, especially ours.

    • nikoliapapa

      I think this happened mostly because after the news for twilight cheating, no more people really vote for it. VA is increasing but in normal rhythms, nothing weird. But truth is that since the cheating came along, the Battleships should probably restart. Especially in case fans cheated in previous rounds as well.

      • Liderc

        What probably happened was the majority of Twilight fans had already voted, so once the one cheater’s votes got removed, the Twilight votes were slowly moving up, whereas it probably encouraged the VA fans to spread the word more to win.

        I don’t have a dog in this fight, neither of my ships made it to the final round and I don’t know anything about VA so would probably have voted Twilight just because I’ve seen the films but I didn’t vote during this one since I didn’t know both ships.

        Looks like the tallies finally fixed themselves, the percentages are correct now it appears.

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        Exactly.

    • ff501998

      Wow, full turn from you Twilight fans … when your votes were going up, up and up, and others were saying how Twilight should have not been included in the Battleships because of how everything else got messed up, you guys screamed ‘why not’ and now that you are losing after being caught cheating … you think the Battleships should be cancelled?

      Bravo … bravo!!

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        You know, some of us have brains and a conscience. I literally didn’t know what someone set up a bot. So then I defended us. And I still do, but I don’t defend them dipshits who set up that bot.
        I don’t think that we should be disqualified, but that Battleships sould be redone in a way that makes cheating really hard, so it would be honest.

    • c21

      How was it not fair? Twilight fans brought in the bot to “try” and win, but got caught. Romitri won and now it’s a “conspiracy theory”? If Bella/Edward would’ve won twihards would be “HAHA I told you! We’e the best” “In your face VA” you guys would be bragging up the wazoo!

      Why should it be cancelled? Maybe the “Twilight” craze is no longer big, still batshit crazy, but not as big as 5 years ago…

      • ZofTheTwiHard

        It was just a random thought. Plus it wasnt the fault of the whole fandom, so don’t spread the hate – I’m as pissed as you are. Of course we’d be happy if we won – tell me who wouldn’t be. And I said that is should be canceled not because we were losing, but the whole thisg is virtually void.

  • Anna

    ROMITRI ROMITRI ROMITRI <3

  • Britta Nilsson

    Edward and Bella! <3

  • Cami

    ROZA AND DIMKA <3 Can't vote from my phone though…

  • Ámari Vazquez

    Rose/Dimitri please

  • Hollie

    ROMITRI FOREVER!!!
    They’re cute, funny AND badass together. What’s not to love?
    Bella would die if Edward died.
    When Dimitri was taken, Rose went to the other side of the world to ‘free’ him, then back again, went looking for answers in Vegas and broke a criminal (who had affected her personally) out of high-security prison and fought Strigoi to restore him. Then, helped him forgive himself enough to live again. Love and devotion? It’s right there. “Souls in sync”.
    Roza + Dimka = Perfection. Peace out :D

  • nikoliapapa
  • Deusa Russa

    This is Romitri <3 Rose & Dimitri

  • normalizboring

    At least it wasn’t Twilight

  • Chrissy

    Yes, Romitri won! <3 OTP! <3

  • Ashliie

    Romitri WON!!!!

  • Aarya

    Yes! We won guys!

  • hcoffeegirl

    if the twilight fans cheated in this round that is mean they cheated before too so the whole battleship is just void – they put out couples who probably would have chance to win the whole thing like: Ron/Hermione, Darcy/Lizzie, Tris/Tobias, Percy/Annabeth and Jaime/Brienne – it’s just unfair for all this ships (and I like all of them – if they lose against to each other i wouldn’t be upset because all this ships are beautiful and deserve victory)
    so for me this whole battleship is void and all of the ships above are the winners

    • Liderc

      They said it was one person, not “twilight fans.” Bella/Edward never battled Ron/Hermione, Tris/Tobias, or Percy/Annabeth. So even if that one person was doing the same thing for all Bella/Edward votes (unlikely since there were nearly 15,000 fake votes in this round from the same person so they probably would have noticed like they did this round), then it would have only affected the 4 ships twilight battled. For the record, I don’t care about twilight or VA, never read either. Just basing this on what they’ve said and the results.

  • Nik

    These comments amuse me. Jesus, guys…
    Anyway, let’s just take a moment to appreciate the fact that Rose/Dimitri won and celebrate! :) They deserved it.

  • Romitri4thewin

    YEAH!!!! ROMITRI RULES ALL!! OOSH! BEST FANDOM EVER!!!

  • Lil

    I came to see the results thinking Twilight won but NO they didn’t! R+D forever!

  • JAK

    Bella and Edward lost? “My faith in humanity is shaken!!” lol, can’t believe all the Twilight hate. What’s the point? Get the heck over it and move on, you’re wasting time you could be spending being a fan over something YOU like (unless you enjoy aggrivating others for their enjoyment, in which case you need to buy tinfoil and sit in the corner). If more of us would have been able to get on here to vote in time (some of us are busy lately), we’d likely have a different outcome. Fans in other camps feel the same way, and that’s fine. It’s the point, in fact. We’re all passtionate about what we enjoy (or at least, that’s the ideal thing).
    If YOU like something, you have your reasons – so does the rest of the world. And as a Twilight fan, all that hate does is show me the ignorance and disrespect (not to mention a touch of the “Pavolov-ian”?) on the part of those who say them.
    But on a much better note: My heartfelt congratulations to Rose and Demitri, and to all those who voted for them because they enjoy the two as characters. Every character (and ship) needs their day in the sun, and my hat’s off to you! :-D

    • ZofTheTwiHard

      Just two words for this.

      • JAK

        Thank you much! Not bad for a Twi-guy, huh? lol

        • ZofTheTwiHard

          Not bad. Not bad at all ;D
