    This nominating period will be closed off by May 4th. All characters from the comic and prequels/additional canon material are fair game. Since there wasn't the greatest amount I just dumped in all the possible ones I could think of.

    Edit of clarification: all new matchups will start when the comic updates or at least 10+ votes are in by ~4 days. (AKA around twice a week).

    I second this one, as well as nominate Lirian and Durukan. It takes a certain kind of love to necessitate leaving a gaping hole in your uber-spell.

    O-Chul & MitD
    Oona & Redcloak
    Xykon v. Redcloak

    Can we do dead/out-of-the-picture relationships, too? Because then I'd also add:
    Durkon &/v. Malack
    Tarquin &/v. Elan

    Not sure how to label those two, since they went from friendly to antagonistic.

    I'd like to nominate Haley and Ian. Despite being a very flawed parent, Ian did try to do what's best for Haley. And despite his flaws he was arguably the best of the three fathers of protagonists who have had large roles in the story.

    I feel like sorting the relationships into groups by x, v and & would make it easier to look for a given relationship.
    Would Durkon&Malack be considered a variant? Durkon seems to have been on that side before he realized Malack was a vampire, and given Malack's monologue he clearly was viewing Durkon that way before their conflict.

    Noted, thank you!

    I classified them by the overall impression, and Durkon and Malack, at the end, was still an antagonistic relationship (they opposed each other diametrically on moral principles, they fought each other to the death, and the conclusion wounds up with Durkon being unwillingly vampirized).

    For now, though, I'm just classifying relationships for fun -- if I ever start up the tournament everyone will just be labeled "#1 & #2" to make things simpler.

    That sounds good, since I nominated Durkon and Malack because I liked their best buddies friendship. ;) Sorted first post looks great.

    "Durukan" should be spelled "Dorukan"; also, Bozzok v. Haley and Crystal v. Haley? Those two interactions more or less drive the second half of Don't Split the Party, and are central to the Tinkertown conflict.

    "Bozzok v. Haley" and "Crystal v. Haley" should be "Bozzok vs. Haley" and "Crystal vs. Haley", since they are not engaged in litigation against each other.

    Those are not mere abstract concepts. Those are religious tenets. For the both of them. They are no different from Durkon & Thor, and Minrah & Thor.

    All four probably should get their own category, really. Maybe marked with ^ to indicate petitioner's connection to their object of devotion.

    Thor is a legitimate character with an actual personality, motivations, sentience, etc.

    Banjo barely counts as a character, but he is a god with some(?) degree of sentience, and thus passes the bar. Like, really really barely passing the bar.

    I like the relationship between Loki and Hel. It seems interesting.

    Can we get V & Blackwing on the list? I enjoy their interactions.

    Would also recommend adding Belkar & Mr Scruffy and Roy v. Xykon.

    Could also do O-Chul v. Redcloak. They just had the one scene, but it was a really good scene.
