This has all happened before...  
So Paul Wesley made it to the third-round of EW "UnderAppreciated Entertainer of the Year" Bracket Game (defeating Jared Padalecki, btw, and if you don't think that turned into a TVD v SPN spitting match, you don't know fandom at all). Paul is currently fighting it out with Thomas Gibson of Criminal Minds -- he had a close but pretty solid lead and then abruptly started to nosedive.

The reason for this sudden nosedive?
A - a massive sudden upsurge of CM fans
B - poll failure (which is what a bunch of Stefan fans were thinking)
C - a bunch of tinhat Delena shippers voting him down out of spite?

If you picked C, congratulations, you've been in fandom (any fandom) longer than six months.

I had no doubts that was happening even before I read the anonymouse report.

Might even have been earlier, but then again, it was harder to flock and such.

Ship wars! I love a good navel (gazing) battle.

All the same old crap, new station. I should make a new BINGO card - I wouldn't have to change it much.

Bingo would be fun. But, TVD is built for ship wars. It's why the show exists. GO TEAM Stelena!!! Whooot. ::ducking::

there. I almost have bingo now. :P

(Dude, I could at least understand WHY people would ship K/L, even if I didn't care for it. But D/E is something I don't even GET, much less any "epicness" or WTFery. It's like zillions of people being devoted to the sun rising in the west. *boggles*)

aw now you've made me nostalgic. I used a bot once for Helo on one of these EW-type polls, years ago. It was awesome. :D
