Results and The Barfing on His Brogues Bracket (Round 3)

We are skating on very thin ice now, Betties. Round Two was finished in spectacular fashion with some heartbreaking losses (at least, they are for me). Polly didn't survive the juggernaut of Cassandra By Chance, for instance. She was always doomed but I hold her in great affection. Here is a look at the horrors ahead in the next round.

The Secret Pool vs.
The Little Dragon

The Hasty Marriage vs.
Discovering Daisy

Tabitha in Moonlight vs.
Cassandra By Chance

Roses Have Thorns vs.
Damsel in Green

The Promise of Happiness vs.
bye--no match this week

Chuck shed a single tear.
That tear throat-punched the spreadsheet that
broke a Betty's heart.
There were two Unfortunate Ties I had to break and, like a woman of courage, I made Betty Debbie disappoint the assembled Betties. She chose The Secret Pool over Always and Forever ("The Secret Pool is the only one that makes me cry--so much PATHOS! Always and Forever has York but I find the step-father creepy."). In the other match-up she chose The Little Dragon over The End of the Rainbow (she admitted that it was a harder decision and in the end went with The Little Dragon...and then she sent me a GIF of Chuck Norris punching things. This is hard, you guys.)

I moved Roses Have Thorns into a match-up for next time and gave The Promise of Happiness (or Becky and the Baron, the Hot, Hot, Baron) a bye.

I've made the decision to put off a wildcard vote until after the third round. We're going to really need it. And so on to The Barfing on His Brogues Bracket (Round 3)!
