The next nomination poll starts with A Song of Ice and Fire! Vote for your favorite relationship from the epic and dangerous book series.
Earlier this month, we announced a brand new version of our popular shipping tournament, BattleShips. In this edition, we’ll be putting some of the most popular books and their relationships against each other. We’re excited to find out who will outrank who and which shipping communities will be loud enough to name their ship Best Book Ship of All Time!
If you’re confused about what’s happening be sure to check out the announcement post.
The ‘ASOIAF’ Ship Nomination
It’s time to nominate your favorite A Song of Fire and Ice ship! Please choose one of the ships from the poll below. Nominations for each book will last 24 hours. This nomination will end June 3, at 10AM.
Is your ship not listed? We’ll be on the lookout for ships we missed via the Disqus comments. Sometimes it’s tough to remember all the ships in a series, so please don’t blame us for missing some! If you think we’ve missed your OTP then you are more than welcome to nominate your ship in the Disqus comments.
Please use the following format: “Nomination: character/character” so we know you’re actually nominating someone. If a user nomination in the disqus comments receives more up votes than any poll option, it will become the winner.
The books competing are…
We asked you to nominate your favorite books for inclusion in the tournament, and now we’re all set! Listed in no particular order, the user nominated are indicated with a *.

Getting it right.
There are a plethora of ships in these books, so we need your help! If you’re well versed in the relationships of any of these books and series, we encourage you to email [email protected] to help uncover the ships we didn’t think of! Currently the books we still need assistance in listing ships with are: the Sookie Stackhouse novels, Fifty Shades of Grey, Vampire Academy, Bloodlines, The Infernal Devices, Delirium and His Dark Materials.
In the past tournament we held a sudden death round in the event that two couples are within 100 votes of each other. We’ll definitely be bringing sudden death back into the mix, but not until after the nominations are over. These polls alone will take two and a half weeks to continue onwards to the tournament, and 24 hours is sudden death enough as it is!
We apologize if you were looking forward to sudden death this round, but we hope that you let your fandom know the date they’re going up for nominations! This way you’ll be prepared when the poll comes up on Hypable.
