Update: While the polls in this round of 2013 Ultimate Slash Madness Tourney remain active, vote recording for the Final Four closed Monday August 12, 2013 at 11:59pm Eastern. At the end of this post you can see the final recorded vote tally in each bracket. The winner of our 2013 tourney was announced here.
The first ever Ultimate Slash Madness last year resulted in an astounding 4.7 million votes and thousands of reader comments, tweets and Tumblr postings. This year’s event has already surpassed that (5.2 million votes, 8,000 user comments and counting) and we’ve only just closed Round 3: Elite Eight. Way to go slash fans!
We’re down to the fabulous Final Four now. Supernatural can claim two spots with Destiel and Wincest. Last year’s winner Sterek is still in the running representing Teen Wolf and finally there is Sherlock’s Johnlock.

Voting for the Final Four starts below and will be open through Monday, August 12th 11:59 p.m. EST. You may vote as often as you like, with one caveat: be aware that too frequent voting or a voting pattern that appears to be computer automated (i.e. a “voting bot”) will result in a “suspicious activity” message and will trigger a one hour cooldown period, during which you won’t be able to vote at all.
With that bit of housekeeping out of the way, Round 4: Final Four is now open!
