Hellsing went to the top of that poll pretty quickly (it’s still tied for #1 if you include the And Shine Heaven Now votes) — and, well, that’s basically just the Vampire Hunter Thorn AU.

So I decided to get a feel for what else readers want to see in that continuity.

Who should make their debut in the Vampire Hunter Thorn AU? (Leif, Thorn, Stanczia, and Imri are already there)

The discrepancy between the numbers for “a gyro is a sandwich” and “a burrito is a sandwich” tells you…something about double standards. And the discrepancy between “an open-face sandwich is a sandwich” and “avocado toast is a sandwich” tells you that “what counts as an open-face sandwich?” is an unanswered question in its own right.

I’m the one who originally wrote in “and shine heaven now”. I also wrote in RWBY and My Little Pony and Kill 6 billion demons and GirlGenius and superhero comics… I have a trick with my laptop and my cellphone which lets me do multiple write ins >.>

And I wrote in “Elf” for the houses because of a joke omake in which Harry gets sorted into “House Elf” and has to work in the kitchens.

And I’m the one living in the Magical Kingdom XD

I was sad that Ophiuchus wasn’t a zodiac option.
