So Troy won FMM, and I'm feeling:



But - I thought I'd share one of my 'campaigning' comments, because it highlights one of the reasons I got so caught up:

~~~~~~~~~

This is one of those personal comments about why Eleven is important to me.

The thing is, I have three young daughters. And they're too young for Veronica Mars and Buffy and Scully and all the other awesome ladies. I'll introduce them in time, but for now they're nothing but abstracts. But, what my daughters do have, is Doctor Who. And Doctor Who has given them role models in abundance.

I can tell them:

- Stand up for yourselves, and what you believe, like Amy.

- Be good and loyal and decent like Rory.

- Always remember that women can be just as brilliant as men, if not better - just look at River!

- And be kind, like the Doctor.

~~~~~~~~~

And here's where I turn into Unashamed Proud Mother. Yesterday The Cherub (who's 5) got a special, handwritten sticker in school, which said this:

I was very kind and let somebody have a prize because I already had one.

Letting someone else having a prize was her own idea, btw, and she clearly impressed her teacher. *is too pleased for words*

So although I came home to find that Eleven had come second (which - DW fans, can you remember a year ago? And now he came second in FMM! Our boy did good!) - I couldn't care less, cause when it comes to what really matters I think I'm somehow getting it right. I have a little girl who is kind. ♥

The lovefest continued through the night, and - since I had to look through all the pages - I shall point towards these two comments which both celebrate BOTH shows/characters.

Now unless the Who fandom find FOUR HUNDRED new votes within the next few hours, Troy will definitely win. But not only do I think it's well deserved (I voted Troy throughout - until the finale - thanks to the campaigning), but I also think it's the result the Doctor himself would want. As one commenter pointed out, Troy is exactly the kind of person the Doctor fights for. And he'd totally cheer for 'the underdog'.

Firstly, then I am of course OVER THE MOON that Eleven made it to the finale!!!

(Obligatory VOTE ELEVEN!!! Esp because he's behind...)

But, the whole thing has now turned into a huge love fest, and DW fans are watching (or going to watch) Community and Community fans are curious about DW (one person mainlined S5 in 2 days!) Plus of course all the other shows. Fandom is being AWESOME and NOT BITCHY and everyone loves the nice guys!

So basically, EVERYONE'S A WINNER! \o/

(And there is already comment fic: Troy Barnes as Eleven's newest companion.)

It's between Eleven and Veronica Mars and it is THIS CLOSE and has been like that for hours and hours. And whilst I am very fond of VM ([livejournal.com profile] marsterslady gave me S1 some years ago, and it is undoubtedly one of the most perfect TV seasons ever), Eleven is quite simply...

MAGICAL! ♥

Plus, a fabulous person is posting eleven reasons to vote for Eleven. Go to page 25 and page 26. \o/ (#7 is especially funny!)

(I want a finale of nice guys! There are not enough nice guys around!)

So PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE, if you have a minute to spare vote Eleven? (Link takes you directly to the poll, so you don't have to deal with a million gifs if you'd rather not.)

My votes:



I know. I've not watched a single minute of Community. I'd barely heard of Troy before last week. And Sherlock is all kinds of delicious.

But, like I said before, I'm going for the nice guys this time round. So I went with Troy. :)

He's up against Buffy! Which, you know, conflict of interest. I absolutely understand why you'd vote for her (or just abstain *g*). But she won last year!

If you want reasons to vote for Eleven, then [livejournal.com profile] flameish wrote some amazing meta on the character. It does contain major spoilers for everything aired so far though, so if you want a simple, short answer:

HE SAVED THE UNIVERSE BY BEING KIND!

And that's why he's my Doctor, and that's why he got my vote. (Even against Buffy. EVIL POLL IS EVIL!)

I know Annie's probably too far behind now, but I've been SO HAPPY that she's done well, because if she has a superpower it's her loving, generous nature, and seeing that recognised is truly wonderful. Ditto the (eleventh) Doctor. (My Eleven campaigning can be found here. *g*)

All of which led me to realise that Annie would be the perfect companion! She has joy and enthusiasm that's off the scale, plus as a ghost she'll never age and she can't be taken hostage or killed! Not to mention that she makes AWESOME tea and the Doctor would love her for that alone. ♥ I need fic of this SO BADLY IT HURTS! (Oh and I've not seen last night's Being Human yet, so please don't spoil me!)

So, dear flist, I tried to resist, but it's useless. So - pretty please will you go vote for Eleventy (because he's awesome and wears a bowtie!)?



ALL my other votes are yours, for whomever you want (first come, first serve).

VOTE FOR THE MAN IN THE FEZ!!!
