Blop-blop-blop! Welcome to the Flan's Elbow Colosseum!

For those of you with more mainstream "tastes" (pun entirely intended), there's always the FFWiki's "official" arena, the
Dragon's Neck Colosseum. Alternatively, if you like the FEC and want to see other atypical fights, check out our affiliates:
Seriously, you will visit them... or imma brick you! >:D

Random bad pun generator: OOZE GOING TO BE THE WINNER?
Disclaimer: Sorceror Nobody accepts no responsibility for any illness you get as a result of the sheer awfulness of the above pun

Place your vote in the appropriate section below, preceded by a "#" for numbering. Registered users, please sign votes and comments. Unregistered users... just register and then come back.

In the event that the leading side (assuming there is one, of course) has a lead amounting to less than 20% of its total number of votes, a draw will be called for that fight.

Every week, there will be a new fight. Updates generally occur on Sundays, most likely around 8pm UK time.* If you want to suggest a fight, or support an existing proposal, you should do so here. This is the beating heart of the FEC, as the normal weekly fights are decided there. You'll also find links to the archives on that page.

I suppose I need a spoiler policy: you are free to mention spoilers here, but I do ask that you at least try to be considerate, perhaps by using my spoiler template. Needless to say, this does mean that if you don't want to see spoilers – and not necessarily just ones relating to the fight at hand – you should be careful about reading other users' votes and comments.

Currently hugely outdated. I'll probably get around to recompiling the statistics this week.

Never let it be said that the FEC lacks manline-
er, wait. This isn't manly. This isn't manly at all.

FEC Rules[]

The FEC is considerably more lax than the DNC, so I generally request nothing more than sensible behaviour and consideration for other users' opinions, et cetera. However, I will not tolerate any of the following:

  • Fundamentally discriminatory remarks, e.g. homophobia or racism. Ideally, don't even joke about it
  • Prolonged and significant deviations from the fight, i.e. going a really long way "off-topic" in comments
  • Ridiculously long votes. Bulky votes are tolerable, but remember, there's a comments box for a reason. A good rule of thumb is that if it's more than two lines (full page width) or four lines (half page width) when you preview it (and I do hope you are previewing), it's going to be too big, and should go into the comments
  • Attempts to gain an unfair advantage for your chosen side, e.g. sockpuppets. Canvassing for votes is
    also questionable, although not explicitly forbidden and it can bring in new voters, so no complaints there... >_>

In addition:

A breach of these rules earns a Yellow Card. In addition to the immediate penalties, the Yellow Card comes with a "probation period". If another Yellow Card is earned before the probation ends, a Red Card, which indicates a ban, will be issued. The ban may be either temporary or permanent, entirely at my discretion.

The current fight is

The Doctor

Votes for the Time Lord

  1. I haven't actually seen Sherlock, sorry (if it were Doctor vs any Holmes, I'd probably end up abstaining anyway). -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 21:36, December 23, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Permission to vote THOUSANDS of times? --BiggsandWedge 00:25, January 27, 2014 (UTC)

Votes for the detective

  1. I love Doctor Who, but damn it, Sherlock Holmes is just awesome! :) (yes, I'm a Cumbercookie, but still.) TMG- Why? (talk) 16:39, December 27, 2013 (UTC)
Blop blop blop!


This is presented as the Doctor versus the character of Sherlock Holmes from the BBC's Sherlock, but I suppose you can vote on the basis of the two TV shows themselves if you must. Note also that it is specificially the BBC Sherlock; I'm not going to go so far as to forbid voting on the basis of any other adaption, though naturally I discourage it. As to anyone occupying the other sector of the SuperWhoLock triad, I hope you don't feel too left out, but I've never seen Supernatural beyond gifsets on tumblr :3

This fight, as it happens, is actually very relevant to both Christmas and New Year. On Christmas Day, the Doctor comes to the end of his thirteenth and final life, and yet we know that he will somehow live on beyond what should be his final death – at the time of writing, it remains to be seen how that will happen. And on New Year's Day, Sherlock finally returns from his faked death at the end of series two. Two days, two shows, two returns from death. I, for one, am excited to see both.

I am still musing on what to do with the FEC after this. Watch this space -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 20:10, December 23, 2013 (UTC)

I did say to watch this space. A year on, and still only three votes? Wow.

So I'm looking back at the FEC out of nostalgia for about the millionth time. And, I dunno, I do want to try and do something with it. Probably not anything close to as frequent a schedule as it had, but perhaps one fight per month or something?

However, I want to get this out of the way first of all, because it's important. I really don't think I can do this alone. The FEC already faltered whenever it relied mostly on me, so it's hardly going to be any better now. Therefore, anything anyone else can offer, whether proposals or even ideas for the running of the FEC, are incredibly valuable. And, most of all, I need to know it's worth bringing back. I'd like to see it up and running again, but the FEC has always existed first and foremost for the visitors (even if I misstepped on that a few times... hoo boy, personal biases. *coughHomestuckcough* Not my best moments). And that means I'm only going to bring it back if the visitors want me to, because running an arena is not easy. It has never been easy. Hell, look at what happened to the rest! Even people who I think were better at it than me eventually folded. I'm not going to take this on lightly, but I am willing to try if that is what people want.

who's with me? -- Sorceror Nobody Flan.PNG 21:03, December 28, 2014 (UTC)
