    This is a tough one. And strangely, my nomination isn't even in the running for my vote anymore.
    It comes down to Talisman, Black House, And Dark Tower #2

    Black House or Dark Tower #2.... Very tough decision.

    Elodin: "Tombs is for feckless twits who can't chew their own food. My boy's a Re'lar! He has the feck of twenty men!"

    Kvothe: “Books are a poor substitute for female companionship, but they are easier to find.”

    Simmon: ”It’s just ointment in case you get burned...but if you mix it with piss, it turns into candy.” Sim’s expression was deadpan. “Delicious candy.”

    I still haven't been able to decide...my mind keeps going back and forth between Black House and Dark Tower #2...argh...I may not vote, if this keeps up. I'm split.

    I think this is one of those rare moments when both are perfectly equal to me.

    i thought so too, that's why i nominated it. but after reading talisman and blackhouse, that scene seems so much more trivial and pointless.

    Ooo, see, the very trivial nature of the scene underscores the true freakishness of what has happened. It may seem minor in comparison to some of Jack's adventures, for example, but the scene itself - the battle between two housewives - is illustrative of the split that has opened in the fabric of Castle Rock.

    Plus, it's a fight with meat cleavers and knives, which is extremely personal. You can't stab somebody from a block away.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    After thinking nearly nonstop about this, I finally decided with Black House.

    It was a very close battle between it and Dark Tower #2.

    In the end, it was the last bit of the Black House nomination that got me. I'd explain, but I'm in no state to add spoiler tags...it's quite enough for me to type and think coherently.
