A Novel Feud by Barkis is Willin' [Game Over]

Object of the game:
Give the most popular answer for each category.

Rules:

  1. No reading the thread before answering. This is on the honor system.
  2. Formatting rules must be followed (see below).
  3. Joke answers will not be considered, as it is not fair to other players.
  4. Google (etc.) is allowed, if you desire.
  5. Maximum 50 entrants, and I’ll score it when I have time.
  6. There is no Rule 6. :wink:
  7. Special Rules for this particular Feud: None

Formatting rules:
To make semi-automated scoring possible, and my job easier, make your post look exactly like this:

  1. answer
  2. answer
  3. answer
  4. answer

No double spacing, no smilies, no urls, no periods, no quote marks, and no punctuation if it is not necessary. Put “pass” if you want to leave an answer blank. If you feel you must qualify your answer, do it AFTER THE LIST!
If you don’t format like this, your answers might be DISQUALIFIED.

Scoring:
With 50 entrants, an answer with a match is worth 2x the number of people matching it. If 4 people match, they each get 8 points for that answer. No matches = 0 points.
Formula: Score = 100 / (# of entrants) x (# of matches) Anyone who responds to a question with two answers will only have the first one counted as their answer.

Good luck!

If any of you have ideas for Feuds -and would like me to score them- PM me. If anyone wants to run their own Feud, feel free. I will help any way I can.

Read the rules!

  11. Tempted to answer “Miguel de Cervantes” to keep with the theme.

  12. Couldn’t decide which Stephen King to answer, so I went older.

  13. Conch!

  14. He gets better. (I was tempted to answer “Riverworld” here, since I suspect this will be an extremely non-conchy question anyway.)

Nice feud; had no difficulty thinking of possible answers, but very few of them seemed easy.

ETA: what, no Don Quixote so far? What’s wrong with you people?

ETAA: Technically, 2001 was not made into a movie (the movie and novel were created in parallel), not that it matters for feud purposes.

ETAAA: I suspect that if it didn’t immediately follow #3, #4 would be less conchy.

I’m guessing this one will be darned close to conch-free.
