you know the Poll you did? Aiai is in the lead followed by Rikyako and Anchan, right? I was thinking about it and I came to the conclusion that is because Anchan and Rikyako have a big reaction each time, and its fun to see it, while Aiai always plays along and even laugh about it, so, I guess, they don't feel bad about making fun of her, because she's cool with it, I don't know, I'm probably overthinking it

Σ░(꒪◊꒪ )))) Oh right, the poll results! 

Who do you think gets bullied the most (by other members) in Aqours?

In first place, we have Aiai, with 75 (out of 217) votes!

In second place, Rikyako with 53 votes!

In third place, Anchan with 37 votes!

The three of them received over 75% of the total votes _(:3 」∠)_

Special mention to Suwawa, who got an impressive score of

I agree with your assessment of the results! I don’t think you’re overthinking it at all but I’m personally prone to overthinking so I’m probably not a good judge ( ‾▿‾ )ゞRikyako definitely overreacts, while Anchan is fun to tease because she’s easily embarrassed. And Aiai is usually chill about people making fun of her, though according to Aikyan and Shukashuu she’s just fun to imitate in the first place lol (because she feels like a mascot :3c)
Trump's incredible shrinking map
Six of the 11 battleground states are now in Hillary Clinton's pocket. By STEVEN SHEPARD and CHARLIE MAHTESIAN

In June, POLITICO identified 11 key battleground states — totaling 146 electoral votes — that would effectively decide the presidential election in November. A new examination of polling data and strategic campaign ad buys indicates that six of those 11 are now comfortably in Hillary Clinton’s column.

Clinton leads Donald Trump by 5 points or greater in POLITICO’s Battleground States polling average in Colorado, Michigan, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. If the Democratic nominee won those six states, plus all the other reliably Democratic states President Barack Obama captured in both 2008 and 2012, she would eclipse the 270-electoral-vote threshold and win the presidency.

Even if Trump ran the table in the remaining battleground states — Florida, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio — he would fall short of the White House if he cannot flip another state where Clinton currently leads in the polls.

And the winner is...

First Hunt!

The last thing Jacob Andris ever expected was to find himself cursed by a witch to live out his life under half a foot tall. He never expected to find himself becoming part of a family that once would fit in his hand.

And he certainly never expected to find himself adopted by a hunter twenty times his size.

Presenting the second story of Brothers Adopted!

First Hunt was written before excerpts, but a sneak peek is coming over the weekend!

Final poll results:

  • Sam of Wellwood - 18
  • Like a Moth to Flame - 24
  • Bothering Bowman - 18
  • First Hunt - 25
  • The Water’s Fine - 17

A very close poll! It came down to the last few votes.

Please be warned that after First Hunt ends, we will be streamlining the voting process by using Survey Monkey. The popularity of the stories has grown enough for us to expand to a better format. Asks and replies for your vote in the poll will no longer be accepted at that time.



I actually can’t believe what I’m reading….

Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders beats every top Republican candidate in Hypothetical General Election Matchups.

The Quinnipiac poll shows Sanders beating Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Ben Carson:

  • Destroying Trump 49 – 41 percent;
  • Getting 44 percent to Rubio’s 43 percent;
  • Pummeling Cruz 49 – 39 percent;
  • Easily beating Carson 47 – 41 percent.

Sanders also has the highest net approval rating ( +12) of any candidate running for President and he is also the candidate that voters deemed the most honest (59%-28%).
