    Wow, so soon after the last awesome result. Okay, since it doesn't seem to happen on my VUAM threads, I'll vote for Giant. We need giants in this playground!

    What's to hate about giants? They're like us, only bigger. They're the anti-hobbits.

    I, too, hate giants and Aberrations aren't my cup of tea, so let's see if Afro can do justice to the Fae - I'm sick of the Disneyfication of the Fair Folk.

    Regarding whether or not I can "do justice" to anything, cast your verdict on the previos villain. I'm interested to hear what people thought.

    We no longer doing the vote-for-three-options thing for type? If not, I'll go Fey. If so, my other two are Outsider and Construct.

    Fey. What's more embarrassing, being pasted by a giant, or being pasted by a butterfly-winged sprite?

    I guess I'll cast my vote with Fey and battle for medium size when it comes to that part. We have enough spritish things as it is.

    Sorry, Juhn, there's no size vote in this contest.

    However, I will say that I have Celtic heritage, and leave it at that.

    This sort of misconception is exactly why we need more creepy Fair Folk. Disney's not done that sort of thing since Sleepy Beauty, in which they managed to create the second most nightmare-inducing (for Kid Me, anyway) Disney villain ever (the first being that guy at the end of Fantasia).

    That's a vote for Fey, by the way.

    Heh. I'll vote magical beast next time, though I'm thinking it'd make a better VUAM than VUAV.

    Also I should have noticed that there is no size vote. I got it confused with VUAM. I'll just have to trust you, afroakuma, as I've got quite a bit of Celtic heritage as well (as in, nearly all of it).

    *shrug* I'd have said the same thing about plants, but the previous villan got a rather good reception.

    ...That's a good point. I don't think Magical Beast stands a chance of winning this one, but I'll probably place my vote there next time (assuming there is a next time).

    Also, if we're going with Fey, is there any way to vote "Incomprehensible" or "Alien Morality" for motivation? The Fair Folk don't tend to think the way we do.

    As much as I want to see a Giant, I'm going to have to vote for Fey. I just think that it will make a better villain.
