A Gentle Awakening (18) beat out Dearest Love (13).
The Promise of Happiness (20) beat Henrietta's Own Castle (11).
This is when, if you were a booster of another title, I slap you on a sweaty shoulder and give you a pep talk about how the greatest reward is a fight well fought and how it wasn't your day and how you left everything on the field and how winners never quit and quitters never win...

I hope you won't feel too forlorn to vote for our finalists. Remember when Rocky Balboa and Apollo Creed became best friends and ran together on the beach with improbably bulky muscles? Time to dig deep, Betties, and show some love for your former rivals.
Arabella wasn't too upset to lose the crown. She could hold

wear overalls and throw bubble gum to children lining the parade route,
her trusty plunger at her side.
A Gentle Awakening
The Promise of Happiness
See you on the other side, Betties.
