Are You Ready To Vote For Fandom -- And Ship -- Of The Year?

***heavy breathing***

Fandom versus fandom. Fan versus fan. When the dust settles, when all the votes are counted, which fan army will take home Fandom of the Year at the 2015 MTV Fandom Awards? And can we put the word fan or fandom more times in one sentence? Maybe.

On Thursday, July 9 Bella Thorne and Tyler Posey will host this year's MTV Fandom Fest at San Diego Comic-Con at a free event for all SDCC badge holders. And then on Sunday, July 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, you can watch as we air the "MTV Fandom Awards Special."

Which is all great, but what are the brackets and match-ups that will rend us all apart? And they will: as a fan myself, I can attest that these are some of the hardest decisions you'll ever make in your life, including choosing a college and naming your first child.

Scroll down for the ship of the year, but first, here are the initial match-ups for the 32 fandoms that, over the course of four rounds of voting, will yield one supreme winner when voting ends on July 8. May the best fandom win...
