Vote - Week 19

A few words from clauderainsrm:


It’s funny, because I know how close we are to the end, but I was looking at the number of entries this week and thought “Where is everyone?” only to realize that we were only missing two people.

In this case, two 1 surprising people person. I had to check to make sure that neither were on the list of people who still have immunities, and that no one had a standing offer for them to get one. Unfortunately, they did not. (See Note in Comments for further explanation, but j0ydivided is STILL IN the competition. She however, has a Patron bye that is being used on her behalf)

Goodbye to two amazing writers, and pretty great people as well - fodschwazzle and j0ydivided.

They will definitely be missed, but I hope we will continue to see them in the Home Game - and their presence will be felt as part of the Jury that will help shape this last part of the competition!

As for the rest of you - 2 of you have invitations to elimination… we just don’t know which two yet.

Help us decide!

Read. Comment. Vote for your favorites! Then spread the word for your friends to do the same! Support the writers you want to see get into the Top 30.. Top 20… Top 10… and beyond…

It’s a long weekend in ‘Merica, which means it’s going to be a long time to read as well, I’m giving you some extra days since I know a lot of people will be busy this weekend.

The poll closes Thursday, June 1st at 9pm EDT So really there’s no excuse to NOT vote!

Good luck to everyone!

First! I knew a few were missing, I'm surprised it's those two! Hope everything is okay, y'all! Good luck everyone!

I literally gasped out loud when I saw the two who didn't make it. You both are such amazing writers! I'm seriously going to miss you both!

Family emergency, I'm afraid. My life kind of fell apart this week and Idol was the last thing on it. If I'd have thought, I would have asked for an emergency bye, but that's life. Thanks to everyone who read and enjoyed my stuff!

I am sorry to see you go :/ I really looked forward to your entries this season and yours were one of the entries that I'd rec others to read (if they didn't want to read all of them) after I had read them.
Hope things sort out for you in RL soon. *hugs* take care.

Unfortunately I'm not sure time will help - - one of my relatives is terminally ill and we're now faced with making some difficult decisions. I spent today saying goodbye, and now I'm trying to help other family figure out what we're doing. I appreciate the good will and positive thoughts, but this is the kind of situation that ends in a funeral.

I'm so very sorry to hear that. I know I'm times like this words can't help but I
Do hope you are as ok as you can be and you and your family find the strength to get through such a difficult
Time xx

PLEASE NOTE
That I DID receive a Patron bye request in my email from someone wanting to give their used Patron bye to j0ydivided this week.

But it somehow ended up in my Spam Folder.

This is why it's *really, really* important for people to email me no later than ONE HOUR before the deadline, and if you don't hear back from me, touch base again to make sure that I *did* see it. Because stupid things like this can happen and that can impact someone's standing in the game.

It's now corrected, but I really hate having to do things like this, so let's make sure to get those emails in on time, and follow up!! :)


For those wondering what a "Patron bye" is, it's a bye given to a certain level of Idol supporters at our Patreon page https://www.patreon.com/user?u=70027 It was originally to the Top 50, but because there still some left unused, I extended it to the Top 30 (which means the last week to use them is next week)

Sorry for the confusion and the acts against your spreadsheets! ;)
